Brown, Black and Blue

I like to wear rompers. And I want to wear them all seasons of the year.
So occasionally I wear them with tights, while dancing around in my house while taking pictures.
Just thought I would share.

Sometimes, I just like to be upside down.

"Move in a twisting or spiraling pattern"

 Ring- Aldo

How To:
  •  Paint a base coat of white on finger intended for design (optional, it's purpose is just to enhance the colours)
  • Add drops of each colour, enough for coverage of the nail
  • Use a toothpick to swirl the colours into one another and cover the nail
  • Don't touch anything. Because I did, and you will have to repeat the tedious process of doing it all again
  • Wait to dry and finish with a clear coat
  • Show off :)

Lovely Leopard

This picture looks like a poster for some murder thriller, like I am the innocent young girl who actually ends up being the serial killer in the end.
Creepy much?

This afternoon I was feeling a little ancy, probably due to the fact that for the last two weeks the only things I have been doing are diploma prep for math and university applications. So my ancy-ness turned into baking blog's searching, and then turned into my Cranberry-Goat Cheese Muffins.
I adapted the recipe from, changing blueberries to cranberries with a few more minor tweaks along the way.

They turned out so, yummy.

All in the Details

I recently picked up this gorgeous Vera Moda Peter Pan top while in The Bay. I work in a mall that has a Bay in it (for my southern neighbours...think Macy's) but always thought that it was such a dated, a tired place to shop. Sure you could buy high-end cosmetics, but clothes?
So I ventured into one of the fundamental fashion components of Canada, and what do you think I found?
That The Bay is incredible!
I actually had a dramatic gasp, hand to the heart, eyes widened with pure excitement type of reaction.
Everywhere I looked there was labels like Rachel Roy, Free People, BCBGeneration, Pink Tartan, you name it!
Seeing that I was on break from my job, and only having 15 minutes to spare I dove for the first thing that caught my eye. A bejewelled, sheer Peter Pan top. Pure, and honest bliss seeped through my pores.
When I tried it on, it was the perfect combination of class and forgive me for saying this..sass. Everything about it I just fell in love with!
The pearl and gem mixed collar had this particular beauty to it. See, I love myself a good pearl. Pearl earrings, necklaces and rings are a staple in my wardrobe. I am the first one to admit that out of leather and lace, I am immediately drawn to the femininity of lace rather than the hard edge of leather. I just love dainty and ladylike things! Smitten with the top, I bought it and ran back to my job with the biggest smile on my face.
Gotta love The Bay.

The Inspiration Equation #1

Black and White Photographs

Are you ever in the mood to just feel retro?
I am not talking about the Beatles, Clueless or Flared Denim kind of Retro
I am talking about the Ella Fitzgerald, Casablanca and Below the Knee dresses kind of Retro.
