for my birthday.

The YSL lipgloss charm bracelet from sephora's:



this AA skirt in almost any color..:

Some opaque tights from AA in various colors:

an exercise ball and possibly and instructional dvd?:

some small dumbbells :


Tons of fabric.
Jewlery.

treatsssssss,
cooking books.

and so on...

instant pick me up.

i was just reading andrews post about him looking at vice "do's" to cheer him up. when im feeling a little down in the morning i put some justin timberlake on my ipod. specifically that damn girl song and pretend hes signing to me and that im hot shit. ok ok so it never actually makes me feel that good but i always laugh at myself for doing it and thats already and improvement on my mood.

when im at home i also like to do simple cleaning tasks in high heels or dance around in my undies ( but that only works when louis isnt home haha)

what are your little tricks? do tell.

long picture nonsense post!

So here is a recap of my weekend documented with very poorly taken pics haha


  • friday i made meaghan something real pretty but since this is a new project that i want to take on, i cant show everyone just yet.
  • saturday i went to a family picnic at my grandparents which was kinda boring but it was nice to be in the country. we were 5 generations there. pretty coocoo.
  • This was a little school that stood where my grandparents built the house. They moved it back and now its pretty much storage but its super cute.
  • That white house is my aunt and uncles place just next door. that barn though belongs to my grandparents. It used to store hay. when i was like 6 my cousins and i used to climb up some latter and jump into the hay, but i jumped into a wasps nest. no fun at all. luckily my aunt is a nurse and made me all better.

  • This is "the little house" its like further back from the main road and you have to go through my aunt and uncles to get there. this little house is my moms but it has no running water or electricity so we dont go often but in five years my mom wants to build past it behind the bend. ( my grandparents have TONS of land. theres even a sandpit way further down that road and a forest my grandpa pretty much planted like 55 years ago haha

  • These pretty little ladies are my moms cousins kids so i dunno what that makes them in relation to me but i pretty much hung out with them all day. haha.
  • Thats my uncle Guy, my grandpa and grandma. my grandpa is the best.

  • Malcolm and his grandpa ( my moms other brother Tom) trying to fish in the artificial pond haha.
  • This is Mononc' Conrad ( uncle conrad) he is 95 years old. hes my grandpas uncle. his mother died at 101 years old. that familys got good genes. He didnt have trouble walking or anything. he was so cute!
  • Saturday night Gabe, sebs roomate, made us a delish dinner. he's an amazing cook.


  • Bavette. giant shrimps. polenta. home made pesto, red pepper coulis. mmmmmm


  • Sunday we went for breakfast at this little place a friend of ours works and then to Jarry park to relax in the sun.







anddddd thats pretty much it.

yesterdays evening.

last night i walked to sebs to pick up my bike and headed down to cagibi ( was esperanza) in mile end to meet up with the always gorgeous meaghan. we sipped some tea and ate some chocolate banana cake and talked and laughed and it made me happy. then we walked to my house so she could see my new rooms. ( soooo messy, sowwayyy) and we talked some more and made some plans. and well life is just so fun.

i was looking at things online ( clothes and interiors) and i realized i am sooo very torn in the things that i love. i like very very young and girly things but i love very serious and conservative looks as well.

could it be fall already?

i know lots of you will hate me for saying this but today feels like fall and it makes me so happy.

this type of cold makes my imagination run wild. images of a cute country style home with a front porch maybe even a swing bench.  some hot cocoa or tea and blankets.  a fire place would be nice too.

oh i hope i get that one day.

anyways fall is my favorite and well today is a good day.

my dad!

i was sending an email for my dad and he had a picture of himself in there so i wanted to show you alll.
his hair looks silly here but meet mario haha







song im addicted to.

"I Was Out Of Your League,  And You Were Twenty Thousand Underneath The Sea, Waving Affections.  You Were Out Of My League, At A Distance That I Didn't Want To See.  
I Wanted A Junction And Often There Was One.  You'd Surface Face First And We'd Share Thought Bubbles.  I Still Believe In The Phrases That We Breathed, But I Know The Distance Isn't Fair To Cross.
Your Depths Made A Pressure That Punctured My Works, And All Your Fluids Couldn't Tolerate The Force Of My Thirst.  I Loved The Place Where We Shared Our Tiny Grace, But Just Because It's Real Doesn't Mean It's Going To Work.
True Affection Floats.  True Affection Sinks Like A Stone.  I Never Felt So Close.  I Never Felt So All Alone."


i listened to the other songs on their myspace and wasnt too impressed. sad. but this song is gooood. thanks meg.

queen of unnecessary freakouts

i was trying to register for school this morning and was freaking out and i started to cry. so i called the help line. turns out i was doing it all wrong and that my application was the simplest thing in the whole wide world.

i registered for two online classes because i need to work some more before i really invest myself into school. its boring classes but whatever itll do. 

i havent done homework in like 8 years, this is going to require tons and tons of dedication haha.

still exciting!

woooo

good morning.

i need to get my camera back so i dont resort to google images when depicting my actions.
this morning was good because:

seb has to dress up for his new job and he looked handsome. ( not actually him but you get the idea ahah)



i had some delish raisin bread and coffee for breakfast.

 

and i am working on my own version of this headboard for my ultra girly bedroom.



more nonsense later.
