During the week I go to sleep late because of studying and have to wake up early to leave for my classes. So at 6:00 am after 4 hours of sleep I don't really feel very inspired to put a nice outfit together for the day. I usually end up in big comfy sweaters and leggings. Today however, I had time to sleep in a bit before leaving for the day so I was able to actually put some thought into my outfit and here is the result!
One of my favourite blog posts and vlogs is the what's in my bag one! I don't know why actually but I guess it's because I'm curious. I aslo find that girls from different parts of the world carry different items, which is pretty cool. So here are the items in my bag. I just bought this bag from Winners yesterday and I will be using it for university so it is huge! It is also darker than it is showing up in photos.
No outfit photos today, it was one of those (for real) sweat pants day, my knee was not cooperating but onto happier things! I've been putting together a folder of things that I call my wish list, so I thought I would share them here. Lets face it, we all love looking at pretty things and my birthday is in a month so I've been looking at pretty things online that I could maybe, and that's a big maybe, treat myself to something on the list.
Since I have a Sony Xperia, which is an android phone, I do not have instagram! But I really enjoy seeing the instagram posts and have been wanting to do something like it for a while. This week I've actually remembered to snap photos on my phone. They're not instagram photos but same idea :)

6. my weekend, lol.
Yesterday was one of those days where I felt like wearing something very comfortable, cozy but cute at the same time. Last year one of my resolutions was to not wear sweatpants outside of the gym, and I've done really well. I only wear my TNA pants when I need to wear my knee brace because that thing is huge and I can't wear anything else with it haha! But that only happens once in a while. So I am very thankful for leggings, and jeggings and all of the varieties. I however never wear them as pants, I really dislike that look. I always wear them with longer tops and sweaters like in yesterday's outfit. Although these leggings are really thick and they're more like stretch pants than leggings.
This winter the weather here has been a bit confused. It gets really cold one day and warm the next and today it rained. Now if the weather is going to be cold I pick snow over rain any time. I have just never liked rain, unless I am inside all cozy and don't have to leave the house. So as much as I wanted to wear my new boots today I had to wear my rain boots and I'm glad I did because it was muddy and gross out.
I also like to add some colour to my outfits on rainy days just to make myself happy :)
Since it has been too cold for me to take outfit photos in proper day light I'm stuck taking them indoors I hope that is alright! I much prefer natural lighting but I cannot afford to get sick one more time from taking outfit photos and end up missing school lol. So on days that it's not too cold (-20) I'll take them outside!
Yesterday I went to the mall with a friend on a random shopping trip and I must say it was a very successful one. I found a pair of gorgeous boots at Locale. This is my second purchase from them and I must say I am in love with their shoes. I also found a thick pair of leggings from Zara that are super cute and comfy which I'm probably going to live in them for the rest of this winter!
When I got home I wanted to take photos of my outfit and decided to wear my new boots since it matched my outfit nicely :)
As you all know the 69th Golden Globes happened last night! I don't really watch these award shows to see who wins because to me these days everyone seems to be winning an Oscar or a Globe for not the right reasons but anyway that is a whole other story.
I usually watch these award shows for the "Fashion Show" that happens at the red carpet arrival haha. I love seeing all the gorgeous dresses and jewelry so I thought I would share my favourites of this year with you!
There was a lot of excitement on the interent about the one and only Coachella music festival this week. I unfortunately will not be going, and the line up is pretty amazing this year. Oh well, one day!
Even though I won't be going I still thought I would have some fun putting together some outfit ideas. It is still a long time from now (April) but I really wanted to do this haha.
I did a bit of research into where the festival will be held so that I could pick out weather appropriate items. Turns out it will be in Indio, California which pretty much has desert like conditions, HOT!
So for me appropriate clothing for this kind of climate will be loose fitting and flowy. I also added one top with sleeves for cooler nights and also I have been in love with that top for a while now and couldn't resist :)
1. LOVE maroon chiffon cross bust asymmetrical maxi| 2. Wildfox Couture Kiss a Groupie Festival Fringe Tee| 3. Threadsence Past in Present Lace Back Tank| 4. Free People Maharani Bubble Sleeve Dress| 5. Abercrombie&Fitch Benni Jean Shorts| 6.Wildfox Couture Red Sparkle Heart Baggy Beach Jumper| 7. Free People Picture Slip Show| 8. Planet blue Keepsake Stay Lucky Dress| 9.Pour La Victoire Macbeth| 10. Pour La Victoire Lavena| 11. Fleur De Force Turquoise & Gold wrap bracelet| 12. Stell & Dot Rhea Bangles and Renegade Cluster Bracelet
I know it's still winter, it has actually pretty much just begun haha but that has not stopped the fashion and beauty world from displaying all the pretty things we get to look forward to for Spring and Summer 2012.
This Spring and Summer brings with it one my favourite colour trends and it's all pastels and soft hues. This makes me very happy. I am very pale so the bright and neon colours that were "in" the past couple of seasons can sometimes look harsh on me so I'm very much looking forward to rocking the pastels ;) Although I am not saying I didn't enjoy the brights and neons!
I was reading my February Elle Canada and it inspired me to do this post to share with you all the things that I am a bit obsessed with at the moment that are within the Spring/Summer colour scheme but I couldn't help sneaking in some bright accessories! :)
I am sorry for not posting this week. I woke up on the first of January with yet another cold and I was not impressed. Anyways this meant staying home mostly, drinking tea and having a Gossip Girl marathon. I am now all caught up and I must say I reeeally enjoyed it! Other than that I'm back at university and already loaded with assignments, which I am taking a break from to do this quick post. I wanted to share with you an outfit photo from our NYE party!
Happy New Year!!
It is the first day of the new year and I'm filled with happy and positive feelings. I had an amazing night surrounded by family and loved ones and I could not have asked for a better way to ring in the new year :)
This year was a great one. It had it's ups and downs. But all of it made me grow and learn more about myself and realize how strong I can be if I set my mind to it. I had told myself that in 2011 I would try and be more calm as I am always the worrier specially when it comes to school related situations. I am happy to say that I have definitely improved in that area, my mom even noticed and commented on it! but I still have a lot to improve on.
I have had this blog since 2009 and I used to blog on and off until 2011. I actually like to think that I didn't really start this blog until February of 2011 when I started to blog regularly. I think (correct me if I'm wrong!) that I have improved since I first started this little adventure. I actually cannot believe I have gone from 3 to 40 readers during this time and I wanted to thank you all so much for actually finding substance in what I write and taking the time to read it :) and I want to thank those who helped me along with this process or any other way in 2011 :)
I also thought I would share some of my resolutions with you here!
Be more patient- with myself and others
Achieve more in and out of school
Smile more and worry less
Become a better person as I definitely think there's always room for improvement!
