Busy Day

Photobucket
Well, my friends I am one tired girl. I started off my day by working 12-4 at Dairy Queen, and then came straight home to shower. After bathing and such, I hopped in the car and drove to Guelph (which is about an hour drive) to meet up with Aaliyeh, a photographer. We quickly grabbed all of her supplies and headed out to the forest for a photo shoot. She was very, very organized and you could tell that she had everything mapped out in her head in advance. I got to wear pretty crowns made of flowers (which she made herself) and flowy skirts and dresses. The whole shoot reminded me of The Virgin Suicides, as the photos were taken in a field of tall grass and at that time of day when the sun is about to go down and it casts a golden glow over everything. I won't say much more about the photos now, so it can be a somewhat surprise when they are done ! Anyways, above is a sneak preview that Aaliyeh sent me on facebook, which she said was to make up for my getting eaten alive by mosquitos today ! Also, my DVD of the movie Candy arrived in the mail today !

Help !

I know that I change the appearance of this blog more times than most people blink in a lifetime, but here goes: I am thinking of changing it, again.. Something just doesn't look right when the page opens. Now the big question is, should I go for a simple white background ? I have been considering it for a while, but haven't been able to decide. So, I will leave it up to my lovely followers to help me make a decision. Do you agree that white would be easier on the eyes, or is one of the reasons you like this blog because it is not just another plain page ? Help me out by commenting your opinion, as well as any other suggestions you have for either the appearance or content(things I should blog about) of Haggard Library. As always, I value your opinion more than anything since I don't just write this blog for myself ! Also, above is a sexy photo of Heath Ledger for everyone to drool over..and then weep over how much we miss him..
Much love, and can't wait to hear your thoughts !

Today was one of those lazy days, where I just sat around doing absolutely nothing.. and loving every minute of it ! I had a terrible migraine today, so I just didn't want to go outside much. Last summer, I got migraines every day so bad that the vision in my left eye would black out. However, I am terrified of blood tests so I haven't gone to see a doctor about them. They have gotten a lot better since last summer, but somedays I feel like a train has run me down.

The suitcase in these photos is one of my latest vintage treasures. Can you believe that this beauty only cost $28 ? My mom was kind enough to buy it for me when we were in Port Stanley (our last stop on this day trip). I think she might have just bought it so that I would stop pestering her all the time about how much I wanted a piece of vintage luggage.

Tomorrow, if the weather decides to not hate me, I am going to be doing a shoot with a photographer named Aaliyeh (check out her Tumblr portfolio here !). This is going to be the first time I have ever been photographed by someone I didn't know beforehand so I am pretty nervous (and excited), to say the least ! We were supposed to get together last Tuesday, but the weather called for rain all day so we postponed it (and then it didn't rain at all) and now it is supposed to rain tomorrow, as well ! So keep your fingers crossed that it won't ! Also, don't forget to follow Haggard Library on Tumblr !

Lately, my parents and myself have been taking frequent Sunday drives, and I love them. My dad and I have always had a love for road trips and country drives. Even when I was small, I was never the type to fall asleep during car rides because there was too much scenery that I would miss. Since we moved recently, we have had a fun time exploring the new surroundings (although my dad grew up here). Today, we took a drive along the shore of Lake Erie and visited all of the Ports along the way. We passed by a lot of interesting houses, and I took a lot of photos. I hope that you all had a great weekend !

Hey Rich Girl

This video is the perfect example of what strange things I do when I am bored. As you can tell, hygiene is basically dead to me.. but don't worry, it died of natural causes (and sheer laziness). In other news, I now have a Tumblr for this blog ! Check it out here. Also, don't forget to "like" the Haggard Library Facebook page. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend !

I got this bag and dress at a thrift store, last weekend ! The dress is denim, with buttons all the way up, and has a cute collar ! This bag is absolutely perfect..I am so in love with it ! On the inside, it has a little spot for pens, and a few compartments, so I think I will use it as my school-bag next year at college ! I also got an adorable vintage brief-case for my laptop, and I will take pictures of it later this week !

Someone please buy me these babies... it makes me sad that I have enough to buy them, but I can't because my mom would beat me to the ground (not literally) if I spent my money. So any rich folks out there, in a giving mood...? Haha. I hope you're all having a great week !

They left me a letter

Photobucket
I am so excited to finally get back into the swing of writing letters ! One of my best friends, Erin, is away for the summer, so we are going to try and write to each other while she is away. She is a camp counsellor at a special needs camp, which is awesome for her because she loves working with kids. Anyways, this is a scan of the letter I'm going to pail to her. I decided to spice up the white envelope by painting a picture on it, using watercolours ! I hope that you are all having a great week so far !

Hello, friends ! How is your weekend going ? It is had to believe that it is already almost over. I drove down to my old town last night to see some friends. I didn't end up getting there until about 10:30pm, and everyone was already drunk at that point, haha. It was lovely running into friends that I hadn't seen in almost a year ! Unfortunately, I downed a whole bottle of my favourite wine, so this morning was less than enjoyable.. Now, I am sitting in my living room while the World Cup plays on the TV (I'm not watching) and my mom jumps and screams hysterically at good and bad plays.

Today, the humidity finally broke and it poured rain all day. Being cooped up in the house made me go stir-crazy, so I took some outfit photos in the backyard. I extended the height of the brick wall behind me, on photoshop, so that it would give the illusion of a hedge maze (or something like it). I fail miserably with the clone-stamp tool on photoshop, which is why my arm looks butchered in the one photo, so I apologize. I hope that you all had better weather, wherever it is you live. Also, hello to the new followers, and goodbye to the one that stopped following (oh that's right, I noticed hahaha). Don't forget to "like" the Haggard Library page on facebook ! Have a wonderful day !

Cleaning out my closet

Well my friends, I finally decided to do all of my laundry (long overdue) and organize my closet. I spent 2 days doing everything, but it is now done, and just in time for my best friend to arrive, yesterday ! Lauren came down to St. Catharines for the night, because we had made plans to go see Eclipse together. The movie was very good, but we both agreed that it wasn't as good as we had expected, which was upsetting. I think it was just because this is the first Twilight movie we had seen after reading the books, so we knew everything that was going to happen and were comparing the two throughout the film.
Photobucket
After the movie, we went to an area of St. Catharines called Port Dalhousie. I love that little town, because there is a beach, a pier, and a ton of little bars and restaurants all in one small area. My parents had considered moving there, but I am kind of glad that we didn't, because the town gets very busy in the summer with tourists. We sat outside, in a little bar trying to beat the heat with some amoretto and coke, and whiskey sour. All in all, it was a great time !

Wildfox Couture Fall 2010: It's Witchcraft

Wildfox Couture may only sell insanely over-priced graphic tee's, but their campaigns and advertisements are always so captivating that it makes me love them just the same.

I bought a cheap camera from a thrift store last winter, and completely forgot about it until recently ! It was only $3, so I was curious to see what kind of photos it would take. Today, I got the film developed and I am pretty pleased with the results ! While this camera doesn't hold a candle to either of my Nikons, it takes some great, rough looking photos. Also, I hope you enjoy the changes I've made to the blog. I get bored very easily, so I needed to change things around !
