To all of you Canadians...

I was just lounging outside by my cousin's pool, drinking Diet Coke and eating Spicy Nacho Doritos... jealous ? :)

Me and my family went to a town in Texas called Galveston for my mom's birthday (aka, Christmas Eve).
ps, I have noticed a strange pattern with my blog: I gain followers when I don't post for weeks, and I lose followers when I do post things.. I can take a hint, blogspot ;) haha

Merry Christmas, from Texas !

Hello, hello ! I have been in Texas for the last week and will be gone until the 3rd. I will try to bring you up to speed about what I've done here so far (by the way, there will be a lot of photos in the post):

This was a Bar-B-Que restaurant that we went to in Austin. My dad had said he wanted to try one, and thanks to the internet my brother tweeted asking if anyone from Austin could recommend a good place. Within minutes he had responses from a ton of people, but we went with Chris Cargill's selection and he even came with us ! It was the best food I have had in a while, and it was such an interesting experience meeting up with someone through twitter...especially since my brother is a huge fan of his movie reviews and podcasts (he's a pretty well known freelance writer/reviewer). If you are ever near Austin, Texas, make sure you go to Mann's Bar-B-Que.

WANT


I saw this photo on Beaux Mondes, and now I want that jacket so badly. I am definitely taking a trip to The Bay soon.

Featured Blog: Becca J. Says


The new featured blog is "Becca J. Says". Apart from having amazing style (and an obvious choice since I lurk the crap out of her blog archives), Becca also happens to go to school with me and I am in her room almost every day. I have never had a friend before who also runs a personal style blog, and it is so refreshing to have someone to talk to about blogging and such without sounding like a self-obsessed tool. Plus, Becca knows of every blog in the world so I never run out of new ones to look at ! She is  studying fashion design, and also makes adorable little bows which she sells on Etsy.

Let it snow

I was so pleased to wake up yesterday morning to a thin layer of snow covering the grounds of my school !  There is something so soothing to looking out the window from bed, and seeing little snowflakes falling from the sky decorating the scenery.
On an unrelated note, I won 2 tickets from my school to go see The Arkells play a concert tonight ! If this sounds familiar, it's because I've seen them two other times, already. You know what they say: third time's the charm ! Have a good night !

Cat Envy

I think the worst part about living in a dorm at college is the fact that you aren't allowed to have any pets. I miss my cats ! Anyone who follows my tumblr can probably tell how much I love felines.
