No Time to Slow Down!

I know I’m always going on about how busy I am, but this week especially it’s true.

Last night I received the keys to my new house *pause here for my happy dance!* so between work, homework, and packing, I have had ZERO time for life. But don’t think that means I missed out on the fashion shows last weekend! I promise you a review will be coming soon, but I’m one of those people who have to do things in chronological order, so here’s an older outfit that I never got around to posting.

cardigan - Smart Set (2010)
jeans - Dynamite (2011)
chunky heels - Spring (2011)

I’m going to try to get to my review by the weekend, but there’s no guarantee as I don’t even think I have internet at home until Sunday.

Wish me luck with the big move :)

Balla Life Style

So I kiiiinda forgot yesterday was St. Patrick's Day. I know, I know, what kind of alcoholic am I if I forget our most important holiday? So as you can see, I had no green on. So I thought I should hold a green bottle to make up for it. That's how festive I am.

Totally unrelated, but equally cool, I bought a washer & dryer!
I know, you're completely envious right now.
What can I say? That's the kind of balla life style I lead.

Tonight also marks the beginning of fashion weekend here in Ottawa!
Unfortunately I won't be there tonight, but you'd better believe I'll be front row tomorrow for Rachel Sin! Can't Wait!

Sheer & Belted

It seems like almost every time I sit down to write I have a complaint about something, so I’m going to try my very best to be positive and list the good things that are happening right now.

· I had the day off yesterday, so it’s like I have a four day work week!

· I practically have the whole house to myself because my mother & grandparents are on a well deserved cruise.

· The closing date on my townhouse is in SIX DAYS!

· I’m making delicious pasta carbonara for dinner, and let’s face it, bacon makes everything better.

Basic is Sometimes Best

I wish this awful weather would make up its mind! There has been so much snow these last few days. And here I thought it was almost spring. Ah well. Although I can’t wait to pull out pretty floral dresses, I’m quite happy that I get some more wear out of my pretty boots before I have to pack them away for the season.

Yesterday’s outfit was pretty simple. I bought this sweater/tunic thing a few days ago when I went shopping with the girls and thought it was a perfect basic to add to my closet. Although it’s not very exciting, it has lots of remixing possibilities, which is always a good thing.

I’m also looking to make a long maxi skirt without much volume. Should it be just a basic tube with an elastic waist? If anyone has seen a good tutorial, I’d appreciate if they were to pass it on J

Busy Bee

I can’t believe it’s already Wednesday! This last week has just flown by, but that’s probably because I’m a lot busier than I used to be. It’s amazing how much your social life can pick up if you just put yourself out there and let it!

Believe it or not, I’ve rekindled friendships with my best friends from high school! We’ve seen each other a few times over the past couple of weeks, and I believe we’re getting together again on Saturday night. Its crazy how much everyone has changed yet hasn’t at the exact same time. They’re still the wild, crazy girls I knew back then and I love them for it!

This is probably also why I haven’t been taking outfit photos! I mean, I have random pictures, but they’re mostly of us doing ridiculous things, and not actually of outfits. But I promise, I’ll get back into the swing of things! I blog for ME, and no matter how busy you get, everyone needs a little “me” time.

Modest Vintage

It has been freezing here lately! A skirt was a bad choice...
Although I do love this outfit! It's the first time I'm wearing these new boots, and the first time I'm wearing this vintage midi skirt. I'm a little unsure of the length though. I love how 70's it feels, but maybe I should lose an inch or two? What do you think?
