Sitting on the ferry

Photos by me. From top: unflattering photo of my dad and I in the car. the grasslands of central BC. Panoramic picture of Kamloops Lake. another unflattering photo of me, haha.

Hello, hello ! As I right this, I am sitting on the ferry that will take me from Vancouver to Victoria. I am not a fan of oceans or boats, so this is kind of nerve-wracking, but I'll be fine. My trip has been great so far. It was nice spending one on one time with my dad, and seeing all of my parents old friends, and my god father. Mmmm, something on the ferry smells fantastic haha. You are getting a play by play of what is going on around me. I am listening to the Party Monster soundtrack in one ear, and eavesdropping on the people in front of me with the other ear. I just looked out the window to see some brave souls standing out in the rain to get a good look at the scenery.

Beautiful British Columbia

View from the plane at sunset, as soon as we went above the clouds. Absolutely breathtaking !

Landed safely in beautiful British Columbia tonight ! The flight seemed to take forever, even though it was only 5 hours. I watched Never Let Me Go on the plane (I love that movie, but it always makes me cry) and a bunch of episodes of Community. Off to Kamloops, which is where I was born, in the morning ! xx

Packing

video by me. It is a stop-motion of me packing my suitcase for my trip. Music is Neopolitan Dreams - Lisa Mitchell. I only got halfway done before my mom came in and questioned why I was filming my packing, then the inspiration was gone so I just left it at this. 

I leave for British Columbia tomorrow, and I am very excited ! My plans changed a bit when my dad's good friend passed away after battling ALS for the last several years, so now my dad and me are both going to fly to Kamloops (my home town) for the funeral. Then we will drive down to Vancouver, and he will drop me off at the ferry and return home. From there, I will take the ferry to Victoria and meet up with my friend, Meara ! Hopefully my job hunt goes well, and I can stay out there. xx

When the world seems to get too tough, bring it all back to you

Why yes, I am listening to S-Club 7, haha. I had such a lovely weekend. I went to visit my best friend at her university in Toronto, and to top it off her little sister was there too which was awesome ! On Saturday we went downtown and wandered around the Eaton Centre. We would have ventured around the city, but it reached -20 degrees celsius this weekend, so we didn't want to be outside very much. We met up with Gabby and her friend Aaron for dinner on Queen St. West, and went to an amazing crepe restaurant. But leave it to me to go to a place that specializes in crepes and order a sandwich..haha. I wish I took more photos, especially at the restaurant, but I was having such a good time I completely forgot. Once again, the curse of being the only one taking photos strikes again... I'm not in a single one, haha. I love the photo of Lauren and Anneliese (her sister), and I don't know why ! Lauren is one of those people who has really lovely bone structure, and looks insanely lovely (even when not trying, or paying attention) and this captures Anneliese's spirit perfectly. She listens to rad music, never wears makeup, doesn't give a  #@!* what people think (but not in an annoying "non-comformist" way), always says the most entertainingly funny things, and is only in the tenth grade, whereas most people don't figure stuff like this out until they are older. I love that family, they are incredible. xx

Hello, lovelies. I have such an amazing week ahead of me. I am going to visit one of my best friends, Lauren and her little sister Anneliese in Toronto this weekend ! And then on Tuesday (I think), I am flying out to Victoria, BC to stay with one of my other best friends, Meara ! I am beyond excited.
Which leads me to my next point. I am hoping to move out to Victoria or Vancouver until August and am currently looking for a job/place to live. So if any of you readers are from the area and know of a job opening or an apartment then let me know, please ! Even if you or someone you know needs a roommate, I'm down haha. Let me know, and have a good day ! xx

Kindof late, but here's my year in review !

This is my outfit recap of 2010. We'll start with the beginning of the year (Spring):
I was still living with my aunt and uncle in January, and doing a semester back at high school. I was doing a lot of painting/sewing in my spare time.
I made this dress for my final project in fashion class. It was inspired by Zooey Deschanel's style. I wish I lived in a place where I could wear this more often without getting looks.
This was the first year that I actually watched the olympics !
I wore these 80s pearls everywhere... now, I wonder why I wore them at all. I was also really digging the straight bangs at this time.
 
I bought two of the most gorgeous slips at a thrift store.
My mom's side of the family came to visit in May, which was awesome !
I bought the most incredible vintage dress from a shop in Kensington Market, Toronto, with my mom.

I will post the looks of summer, tomorrow ! Have a wonderful night. xx

I hope that you all had a great New Years Eve ! I went to some clubs with my cousin and her friends, and fell a bunch of times (I have the bruises to prove it), but it was lots of fun. I took these photos as soon as I woke up, this morning.. note the day old makeup and tangled hair. xx
