I had a dream...

Last night I dreamt that I was at a concert for some HOT singer/rapper. I cannot remember who it was...all I know is he was smokin' hot! Anyway, at the concert the guy saw me in the croud, pulled me on stage and then we hung out after. We started making out and getting randy. After that night, we were madly in love and I was dating this super hot, super rich, suuuper fame guy! ....amazing.


P.s. The guy was equally as sexy as Tyrese, only a better face. Same bod though. Yummy.

Hi-Ho Hi-Ho It's off to work I go...hopefully!

Planning and preparation for getting a 'real' job really is a lot of work! You have to spend hours researching and studying the company, going over any questions they may ask and making sure that you have a long list of adjectives ready to describe yourself. Plus you have to plan the perfect outfit that says, "I'm smart, I'm reliable, and I know how to dress," matched with the perfect nailpolish, shoes and accessories. I couldn't be more nervous. It is like preparing for a test that will determine the rest of my life. Gaaahhhh!

Just-Between-Us Chit Chat

I love how AF and I have our own little chit chat language between the two of us. We use gushy words and say things that don't make sense to anyone else, but think it's totally hilarious. I am sure most boyfriends do this kinda stuff..because deep down they too love to be a bit lovey once in a while. But could you imagine if their friends found out! I mean, their friends probably talk with their girlfriends like that but they obviously wouldn't tell anyone. Well I am off to "snuggle-bum" AF. Hahahah. He would kill me if he read this.

BIG News!

Big news everyone! I have an interview in Toronto for a marketing/advertising position! I could not be more excited! And thanks to my cousin and pal JE, it is turning out to be less stressful than expected. Looks like I may be making the move faster than expected! Fun/crazy summer ahead. I will keep you posted.


May 2-4

Hello all!

What a fabulous weekend of barbecues, lounging by the pool and sunshine! I spent the majority of my time off doing absolutely nothing with AF and I loved it!


Side note: Do not eat red meat once you have given it up. You WILL get sick!

An odd blog topic but when I read this on the homepage I was terrified.

"Reports from the remote community a few hundred kilometres south of Hudson Bay say a strange creature was pulled from a local creek earlier this month — a creature some are calling a monster.

Photos of the furry, bald-faced creature were posted on the official website of the Big Trout Lake community and have since caused a flurry of speculation on the Internet.

According to the website, two local nurses were hiking near the creek when they noticed their dog Sam sniffing something in the water.

The dog pulled the 30-centimetre-long dead creature from the water and the two women snapped some photos of it."

...And people wonder why I have a fear of water! Gahhhh!

It's the Little Things

Wouldn't you agree? When it comes to the opposite sex, it is always the little things that count. The grand gestures are of course welcome, but it is just so attractive when a man does just a small act of kindness or respect. For instance, more often then not, when I go to run into the elevator up to my office in the morning, the man in front of me will hold the door and let me step in first before he gets in. Respectful, non? Or the simple act of a man standing up when you sit down at a table. It's the little things that make us as women feel appreciated, and special. And guys, please don't forget about the little things once you are in a relationship. Because we watch out for it! And blab to our friends when our boo does something sweet! And that's when the girl who doesn't have a sweet boo will say, "Ugh, I'd like to see my man do something sweet like that!" See what happened there? You've just been burned. So the moral here is, do the grand gestures, and the small ones. Basically just always be doing things for us. And buying us nice things.


Surfer Chick

I wish I could surf. I truly do. Does it not just look so freeing and exhilarating? Not to mention that girls who can surf are like plus 10 hot points in my book. You get a work out, while tanning, while being in the outdoors! Perfection!
My only concern would be sharks biting me while I'm floating by. Is that a thing people worry about? Or am I just being a maroon? Cancel the question if the answer is the latter.


Business Beauty

As I plan my adventure to the big city, I start to imagine the looks I would like to pull off for my new 'business woman' identity. These are a few ideas so far.

Chocolate Coma

All I can think about is the half eaten bag of chocolate that I have in my desk at the other office. I am tempted to stop on my way home to pick it up. I fear that if I don't, my craving might get too intense throughout the night and my boss will find me passed out, smeared in chocolate, on my desk in the morning. Having broken in in the middle of the night to satisfy my urge (I'd call it more of an addiction) to chocolate of any sort. Remember when I was supposed to be on a diet. GAAAHH!


I want this.

I want this dress. I saw it in my Flare Magazine and hunted it down online. It is from H&M's Fashion for Aids collection 2010. Not expensive however I think I may look like an enormous pink-leapard-print-elephant in this. Hello! Capped sleeves! But I might be able to wear it with a jean jacket or something? Either way, I want it but it looks like a dress that you definitely need to try on before buying.


Big City Livin!

So things are changing so fast it is making me nauseous. In the past two weeks I have considered a move to the city, talked with my cousin about possible job opportunities, and now I might even have an interview! This is terrifying! I am still in the process of convincing AF to move with me. He seems to be on board but wants to make sure he has a job too...which is understandable. So now I am looking for a framing job too. Plus he can't move until he sells his house. So perhaps JE will let me crash on her couch for a bit if need be. ;)

JE and I could be like Sex and the City! Fabulous business women, with fashionable outfits, and amazing social lives. Perfect.


P.s. Can you imagine having a job title such as: Assistant Media Executive? Cool!

The Miracle of Life.

Ok, so I have been slacking on the blog front. But I have good reason. I spent last weekend with JE celebrating her birthday and causing a scene. Then I got home and saw the miracle of life! Seriously. I got to experience childbirth from start to finish. My very best pal LD gave birth to her little girl, Leighton. 8 lbs 5 oz. I know, she is a champ! I honestly have a new respect and love for her, and thought that it was the most amazing and best bonding experience ever.

So this blog post is dedicated to my pal LD. Congratulations! I love you!

Remember Her?

Gawd she used to be so pretty and fresh looking! I can't even believe how different she looks now. Oh well. I suppose she hasn't made a good movie since Parent Trap anyway. And I mean that! Because Rachel McAdams OWNED Mean Girls!


JP's cheats...I mean tips for dieting.

1. If it isn't from your plate, the calories do not count.

2. If you use someone else's fork, it is like you never really ate it.

3. Anything you munch on while cooking, doesn't count towards your daily food intake.

4. Take 2-3 big bites of food before you serve it. That way it looks like you are only having a modest-sized portion. Plus, those secret bites are like they never happened.

5. If you are sneaking a bite of something (ie ice cream etc.) put as much on one spoon as you can. That way you can say, "I only had one bite," and feel good about yourself.

6. If you freeze your food, it has no calories (haha jk, had to throw that one in. One of my sister's friends actually believe that).

7. If you eat something bad (ie chips) really fast with no one looking, you can pretend that it never happened.

8. Always have a few bites of your boyfriend's food after finishing yours. It will fill you up more and those extra bites are like you never ate them. (This also works when your boyfriend is eating something delicious and unhealthy and you need to satisfy your craving.)

Just a few tricks to help you get through your diets, friends!

In Response to JP's Hair Dilemma

Do not fret my coif challenged pal. Have you considered the french braid? Versatile, easy to do, and tames those rogue curls like a charm! I'm thinking Sarah Michelle Gellar circa whenever this was,

So cute, no? I think I would love this on you. Check out the profile pic,

Perhaps we will have to work the do' when you come down? And don't worry I'm well prepared. Think hot rollers, velcro rollers, pins, curling iron, straightener, and lots of hair spray. Oh I'm scared for our hairs!!


If I could only have JE's glorious golden locks.

I am having a bit of a hair dilemma. I dream of letting my long gorgeous locks blow in the breeze like JE's... but my hair never seems to get that long. Not to mention I am stuck inside all day with no breeze to show off my non-existent beauty hair.

It is time for a hair makeover. These are some looks I have found that I think may work with my hair type, length, bone structure, etc. Please review and advise.


Matchy Matchy

Do you ladies wear matching bra and underpants? I think that is so hot. I can honestly say I do not have one single bra that matches a pair of underpants that I own. I can also honestly say that I only own one single thong. And it is my reserve pair of underpants that I only where when I am super desperado and have not done laundry in 2 weeks. My underpants of choice are humongous boy underpants that get all balled up under my pants. So cute! Not. I just take offense to a piece of fabric flossing my butt cheeks. Too graphic? You should see my "that time of the month" underpants. Get over it you know you know what I'm talking about. They're green. And huge. And being held together by a swear just the waist band. And I'm fairly certain they were not mine originally.


Rain, Rain Go Away...

This weather! It's killing me over here! I cannot afford to have my birthday hair destroyed this weekend by rogue weather. Just get out of here with that stuff! I want it to be beautiful so I can lounge on the street level patio at the restaurant we are going to! How else are passerby's going to be able to admire how pretty I look on my birthday?

I always love a good Chanel in the summer...

Chanel Cruise Collection

I would love to drape these breezy beauties over my soon-to-be-smaller bod this summer. With the perfect amount of lard-coverage and sheer, and trendiness mixed with classic Chanel, who wouldn't look good wearing these? If only I could afford to purchase such an extravagant bathing suit cover/summer lazing dress. I would have to decide between the dress or the actual cruise.

Perhaps I will start a Chanel savings fund. Any donations JE?


Breaking Dawn

As we all know I am a Twilight the extreme. I have read all the books, have the movies and I am completely in love with the fictional character, Edward. (I may even have a Twilight t-shirt and other memorobilia. Nerd.) So when I came across an article about the final movies, Breaking Dawn, I was a tad annoyed.

"Sources say the actors who play the Cullen kids (especially Kellan Lutz and Ashley Greene) are trying to sink their teeth into bigger paydays that the studio is so far unwilling to provide.

'We may have a situation where one of them is thrown out on the street to make a point,' says a source close to the dealmaking."

You can't just change characters in the final stages of a story. It will ruin the whole movie! Or maybe that's just my opinion.

Movie in Review: Iron Man 2

So AF and I decided to go see Iron Man 2 last night. I texted him mid day asking him if he wanted to go...obviously he did. What guy wouldn't. I wanted to see the movie but I really just asked him to go for an awesome girlfriend effect. I mean, how often does your gf ask you to go watch robot type super heroes blow things up. Not too often I say.

Anyways, it ended up being a pretty good movie. The first half was a bit slow and it was 2 1/2 hours long. Plus I dispise Scarlett Johansson. I find her to be a terrible actress (if you can even call that acting). And her so called 'stunts' were cliche.

Overall I would rate it a 7/10.


Someone tell me how to get a new job.

That is all.


p.s. I just ate a mini Coffee Crisp ice cream out of career frustration. I feel ill…but still want another.

Confession Corner

Yesterday I was hungover as hell so I ordered a medium pizza and garlic cheese bread. And a dipping sauce. Today there is nothing left. Nothing. It was the first time a carb mixed with cheese had hit my lips in ages. I blacked out, came to, and the pizza AND garlic bread were gone. Demolished. Stop judging me JP. I can feel you judging me from 200 miles away. And I swear to God JP, if you are any more than 5lbs skinnier than me for my birthday, I am lacing your cocktails with olive oil and switching out your baked lays for full fat ones. That was harsh. But I stand by my threats.


Lilith Fair 2010

From 1997 through 1999, Lilith Fair was one of the highest grossing touring festivals in the world, with over 1.5 million fans in attendance and raising over $10 million dollars for national and local charities. Founded by Grammy-award winning artist Sarah McLachlan, Lilith Fair was the only tour of its kind—a celebration of women in music featuring artists like Sheryl Crow, Christina Aguilera, Erykah Badu, The Dixie Chicks, Missy Elliot, The Pretenders, Nelly Furtado, Jewel, Queen Latifah, Indigo Girls, Tegan and Sara and of course, Sarah McLachlan.

I was super excited to see that Lilith Fair was going on in Toronto this summer, but when I looked at the artist listings, meh, I wasn't blown away. Chantal Kreviazuk, Sara McLachlan and Mary J. Blige are the most exciting artists I'd say. Others like Kelly Clarkson and Lights do nothing for me. I will probably still go though. Just to support the ladies of music. Go ladies of music!


Reunion and the City

Things to do before Reunion and the City (aka JE & JP reunite for a weekend of birthday madness and mayhem. KL included.)...4 days and counting (I am not counting Friday as a day bc I am not working. WAHOOO!):

-Find the perf dress for JE's bday bash (perhaps I should just wear one of the three dresses in my closet with the tags still attached). The dress must be trendy and fabulous but not as trendy and fabulous as JE's.
-Figure out the perfect coif that will look decent beside JE's luscious locks..may be impossible.
-Shoes. Due to my broken toe, heels may be an issue but anything else just ruins the look I am going for.
-Tea time outfit. Something posh and fantastic that will cost me $0. Good luck.
-Finish JE's amazing present. It is themed...I'm great, I know.
-Create a packing list (lists excite me, plus that way I don't forget anything)
-Lose another 3 lbs

Excited to start the Reunion preparations!



Ya that's right. I murdered. Murdered two spiders on Friday out of cold blood. The big one totally had it coming. I actually saw it spin a small web, as if it was thinking of laying eggs in it or something. Not in my room, no way. So, I sprayed it with Pledge and then smashed it. Why the Pledge you ask? Would the smashing not have sufficed? Did I really have to bring the hurt with chemical warfare? Well my answer is yes I did. Because I needed to be sure that if any other spiders were lurking around the room watching this go down, that they get the message loud and clear. This is my house bitches. So back off and get your own sandwich. I mean room.


Let's Talk Hair

Birthday countdown: 5 days. That means I have 5 days to pick out a perf outfit and get a good hair do' to match. Since I have a full head of luscious locks, (you be jelly, I know) I think I may venture down the beachy waves path. What do you think? I'm thinking something like Bar Rafaeli's do' in this picture. She is such a hot piece of Victoria Secret ass.

JP Big City Bound?

I had a revelation. I am only 24 years old and I still have my whole life ahead of me. And I do not need to settle. I don't need to settle with work, relationships or anything. And so I have decided to reevaluate my life. Moving too fast and settling down when I am not completely ready or satisfied might make me have regrets in the future.

I am not ready to commit to buying a house with anyone. Does that mean I should just rent an apartment here, or..

Do I take this chance to expand my job hunt and move out of town where there are more opportunities? Moving to a bigger city would open up a lot more doors and I know I could be more successful. I would actually be able to find a job (hopefully) in the arts or culture.

This whole situation ties into the post below. Growing up is hard.

I don't wanna grow up...

As my sister's (LP) birthday rolls around again, I begin to realize just how old I am getting. I am at a stage in my life where my friends are all starting to get married and have babies. Most of us are either finished or finishing school and working at full-time "adult" jobs. People are buying homes and getting family pets. Well I'm not sure that I am ready for all this!

Tonight AF and I will be going to the bank to apply for our first in, being legally attached. As in, sharing a house bank account, and being concerned about eachothers financial situation. He thinks it will be a breeze, whereas I spent a considerable amount of the night laying in bed worrying about possible leaky roof problems and property taxes.

Growing up is scary.

Center Part 101

So, y'all know about my current bang status. It's bad. Like, dire. And I so very much missing my center part. You ladies know what I am talking about. I sure know JP does. A good center hair part is so hard to achieve. The type that you can have while leaving your hair not tucked behind your ears. Perfectly whisped back in the front, with the underneath hair perfectly flipped forward. What a look. But so few ladies have the ability to pull off such a part! And alas, I was one of the lucky few. Prior to my frankinbangs that is. Ugh, hate. Anyway, I will be pinning those bad boys back until I can resurrect my center part. Oh and by the by, my BFF Sienna Miller is the poster girl for amaze center part. Check it!


Birthday Beauty #2

I love this FCUK dress! I am thinking of popping over on Friday to try it on. Perhaps KL will want to come with me? The good thing about being so broke (the only good thing), is that I can try whatever I want on and won't be tempted to splurge because I simply don't have any money! The freedom to try on anything I like! Exciting! Kind of. Anyway here is the beauty,

But the back is the best bit!

Don't you just love? I know I do. Love enough to spend $160? We'll see how desperado I get! Besides, I obvi have to be the prettiest girl at my own party!

Leave it to Martha.

Martha Stewart really does do it all! While trying to pass the last 15 minutes of my workday by surfing the net, I came across an article about Martha Stewart entitled, "The Modeling Past of Martha Stewart."

In the early 60's, Martha appeared in places like Ms. Magazine and Glamour, and even spent a summer as the face of Chanel! Even Karl Lagerfeld himself tweeted, "Did you know that Martha Stewart was once a Chanel model in the days of Coco?" Huh. Who knew.



Once you complete your post secondary education and begin the search for your first job, your mind it full of ideas and passion to succeed in whatever field you hope to work in. You imagine yourself (in my case) sitting at your new desk, tip tapping away on your computer, getting urgent calls and preparing presentations. Even the thought of overtime and working late to meet deadlines seem exciting.

But then you actually get this so call "job" and everything changes. Drastically in my case.

With a boss you only see a few times a week (if that) who gives you minimal direction and you are pretty sure he forgot you even worked here, you start to lose hope in any sort of success. The respect and admiration you once had for business starts to fade. And you are left to surf the net and blog the day away.

At lease I am getting paid.

When I grow up...

When I grow up I want to be the Princess of Greece. I will stand atop my rooftop patio bar, over-looking the beaches, while my long luxurious blonde locks blow in the breeze and my tight, tanned body glistens in the sunshine. I will have personal Marble Slab and McDonalds and be able to eat as much of it as I want and only get skinnier. I will also own every designer label in the world (that way it is easier to get the clothes I want).
