"Five of my Favourites" Fridays

Lace ! There is something so lovely about this delicate fabric.

Diet Coke ! This is my all-time favourite drink !

Visits ! My grandparents are coming from BC, to visit for the next two weeks ! And as if that wasn't cool enough, my aunt and uncle from Texas decided that they ! would come up here too for this weekend with my cousins as well, to surprise my grandparents There is a lot of distance between all of us, so I don't get to see my mom's side often, so I am really excited !!


Curly hair ! I am in love with natural (or natural looking) curls, or waves.

Bows ! Whether in your hair, on a dress, or on a shoe, I absolutely adore the girlish charm of bows.

Confusion has been resolved!

I am so excited. Remember that post a couple days ago about being confused about whether that H&M contest is a scam or not ? Well, I talked to the H&M office in Toronto, and its not !! And since I am too young to go to the party tonight, which was part of the prize, they are letting me enter the store an hour before the general public. So, while others wait in line for hours to get in, me and a friend get to go straight through and shop before everyone else ! Sounds mean that I'm so excited about line jumping, but I am just so excited about winning ! I also get a $100 gift card to the store, which is great, because I'm broke ! AHH, if only I could be this lucky with my college residence acceptance. As of right now, I think I am on the waitlist :(

So, after winning that weardrobe contest, I gained a bit of faith in online contests so I entered another one. I was just browsing the web, and saw this contest at (?) where you and a friend could go to the grand re-opening party at the H&M in the Toronto Eaton Centre, plus a $100 gift card to H&M. I decided, "why not?" and entered it. Today I got an email saying that I won, but I don't know how credible the contest is.. haha. Like, I don't want to show up and ask for my gift card and H&M have nooo idea what I'm talking about. Normally, I would just go to Toronto and try my luck, but its on my pilates night, and I don't want to miss a class for nothing !! Gabby or Lauren (or both!), if you read this: care to go on an adventure to the Eaton Centre with me on Wednesday night which could either be really cool, or really humiliating..? :D it said I could only bring one friend, but since I really just want the gift card, I would just grab it and go ! also, I read somewhere that the party is 19+, but they didn't say so on the contest rules and info, so I'm unsure. I could care less about the party, I just want the damn gift card !! anyways, here's a link to the contest so you can all try and judge whether it's for real or not. Let me know what you think, please !

Marc Johns

I am in love with Marc Johns' artwork. The simple drawings, and witty humour is so entertaining and always gives me a laugh or two !

"Five of my Favourites" Fridays

Hello ! Well, to keep some continuity to my blogging, every Friday I will post 5 things that I am currently loving or lusting after.

Christian Louboutin's 3-strap Mary Jane platforms ! (if only, if only !!)

Dakota Fanning ! Not her acting, per say (although its also good), just how incredibly stylish and beautiful she is. Not to mention, she has done the one thing that practically all other child actors failed to do: grow up gracefully !

Tulle ! I am in love with anything that involves this incredibly chic yet fairytale-like fabric ! Unfortunately, my budget has not permitted me to go out and purchase any yet.

Moulin Rouge ! I can watch this movie a million times, and still manage to fall in love with it over and over again, as if seeing it for the first time. I am a sucker for musicals, and this one is perfect.

(Young) Leonardo DiCaprio ! Words cannot describe how much I love young-leo ! He is still a phenomenal actor, but he lost all of his boyish good-looks a few years back !

Song of the day

"that life could be better, by being together,
is what I cannot explain to Jane."

Sunny Day

Today was a beautiful sunny day outside, so I decided to spend my day lounging on the patio ! This is such a comfortable dress. It is very light, and airy ! I got this belt at a thrift store, and it matches my sandals perfectly, as they are the same brilliant shade of red !

Song of the day

"You've got the money, and I've got the reason.
I'll stick around with you for just another season."

Day 30 - Whatever Tickles your fancy

Well, the 30 days of blogging is officially over ! I feel like now I'll be strapped for ideas of what to blog about ! Oh well, it was fun while it lasted ! This video is a fake news report on "how to do a news report". Its really funny, and also makes you think "wow ! thats so true !".

Delicious Treats !

My friend Lauren and her boyfriend Chris came over for the night, yesterday, so we could celebrate Lauren's birthday. They had just come from a night in Toronto, with Gabby and her boyfriend Patrick. They brought some desserts from the bakery that Gabby works at, and they were incredibly delicious !

Where the Wild Thangs are

I got this shirt at a vintage store last year for like $2. I bought it more as a joke, but I wear it when I'm lounging around the house because it is so comfortable ! It says, "I like to do the wild thang" in crazy colourful writing ! haha

Ask me anything

Song of the day

"Wait. Ok. You've gotta look before you go"

Day 29 - Hopes and dreams for the next 365 days

Well, since I already got accepted to the school I wanted, now I really want to get into the residence there ! I hate waiting for confirmation about stuff like that. I also want to get a job as soon as possible, so that I can make enough money to pay for a portion of my tuition, as well as have some decent spending money for the school year ! I am making a promise to myself that I will not slack off in my classes, this year..because why would I pay to go to school, just to flunk out ? I am also going to make sure that I stay on top of my sewing and painting. Other than that, I have no huge aspirations for the year.. I will just let things happen !

I'm the winner kid, I'm the winner kid !

I am so excited for actually winning a contest, because I never seem to win anything ! So sorry if this seems obnoxious, but I am honestly just so damn excited ! I won that Weardrobe contest, "Best bold summer look", that I had entered a couple weeks ago. So thank you to all of those who voted for me, I really appreciate it ! Now, even though I am unemployed, I can still buy some nice things, with my $100 gift certificate to Newport News ! I feel like some new shoes is the first thing on my list !

MIlkmaid braids

I am in love with milkmaid braids. They are so easy to do, and are a quick (yet cool looking) way to get your hair out of your face.

Elie Saab

I am so incredibly in love with Elie Saab's Spring 2010 Haute Couture collection. All of the dresses are so whimsical, yet edgy with their long, flowing layers and intricate applique designs ! I also really love the soft neutral and pastel colours used. If only I could afford just one of these beautiful gowns..*sigh*. Who is your favourite designer, right now ?
