Fashion RED Alert!

Ok, so I am all about fads and trends...and I do my best to be open-minded but this one is a bit much for me. Not only would I look like a child in floral tights but my thunder thighs would look explosive, making me look 20 lbs heavier. Kudos to those who can pull this look off.


My bags are packed. I'm ready to go...

I may not be leaving on a jetplane, but my Ford Escort will do the trick! I am making the big move to the city on the Sunday! I have worked my butt off all week cleaning, packing and squeezing in every second of my friends that I can. So in T-minus 2 days my new life begins. Wish me luck!


P.S. Last day of crap job! Yippeee!

P.P.S. Wouldn't it be cool if I had some vintage luggage like this!? It would make the move so much more dramatic with my pile of suitcases on the sidewalk.

"Suddenly your career is rising and your accounts seem to be in order—or at least you’re a big step closer to this goal. What works for you now is doing it in a way that others wish they had thought of first. Colleagues are contentious around the lunar eclipse, and a power struggle may be inevitable. A summer romance will put everything in focus."

Looks like things are lookin up for me this summer! New job, new place, new life. I just have to get through the next week of packing hell.

Daddy's Girl

I am definitely a daddy's girl and I am proud of it! My dad and I like hanging out, discussing recipes and tv shows, and playing scrabble. He loves my boyfriend AF and I make sure to talk to him at least once a day. That is why I am trying to think of the perfect present for father's day. The only lack of funds. I found these super cheesy shorts that you can customize with your own pictures. I think my dad would love them, but on my budget it's just not going to happen. So what do you get the best dad with zero dollars? Who knows!? You tell me.

Things I need for summer...

BCBG MAX AZRIA patterned maxi. Due to my lack of funds obviously I can't afford this one...but show me a cheap patterned maxi with sleeves and I'm sure I could scrounge up a few bones!

A high waisted, strapless bikini. Maybe not this one inparticular...but I like the throwback that this looks gives.

A new pair of work heels. I am looking more for comfort than cool for everyday-wear.

A delicious new tote for work!

Dream dress crushed.

SO that pink-leopard dress I blogged about a while ago has officially been crushed... I saw Jesse from MTV Canada wearing it. Poo. Oh is so last week..I am so over it anyway.



In the past month about a million things have changed for me:

1. I got a new job..more like a career!
2. I am moving to another city.
3. I have lost another 7 lbs.
4. Adam and I have decided not to buy a house yet.
5. I quit this sh*thole of a job..woohooo!
6. I have gone this entire stressful time without eathing McD's or pizza.

Pat on the back to me.

I am excited/scared/anxious/nervous/in shock that everything is happening so fast! I just cannot wait to stay with JE and KL while I get settled in!

Cheers to being fabulous!

In just eleven days
Our new lives begin,
With shopping for clothes,
And patios with gin.

New jobs and apartments,
And parties galore.
We will cheers with champagne,
...then cheers some more.

Along with our boyfriends,
We will have just a blast.
In our new fabulous lives,
Our success will grow fast.

Best pals and cousins,
Our bond you can't break.
That is, unless of course,
You offer one of us cake.

Hey! You! Get me one of these!



I could not be looking forward to this weekend anymore. Not only do I have the new job to celebrate, but I get to spend time with mine and JE's whole family! When we get together it is a party and a half. And even though we have planned a bbq and the weather doesn't look like it is going to cooperate, we will definitely have the best time!

I love my family.

Wow! I got the job! I could not be more excited! Not only do I get to leave this place...where apparently office staff are hired to move cat-pee covered boxes in the sweltering heat...but I also get the job of my dreams! AND I get to move to TO with my pals JE and KL!

I will have to start packing...which I hate. And I will have to move away from AF for a month. But it will all be worth it in the end. Plus, think of all the lists I need to make now!

Success here I come baby!!!
