why did you create the blog?it started with paish and gossip girl. i had just come home from my epic trip (and written an epic travel blog) and wanted to re-connect with friends. voila, a blog was born.
what kind of blogs do you follow? friends, yoga, fiction, with a sprinkling of fashion thrown in for good measure.
favorite makeup brand? right now i am digging the physician's formula organic line.
favorite clothing brand? i've given up on trying to be fashionable, so there is no one brand.. just bits and pieces that catch my eye.
your indispensable makeup product: black eyeliner.
your favorite colour: i'm not quite sure anymore. it used to be pink but i'm kind of over it. maybe green, the earth.
your perfume: i don't really do perfume anymore, but i love lavender oil. (i'm starting to sound like a hippie - maybe it's true!)
your favorite films: 500 days of summer, memoirs of a geisha, count of monte cristo, the harry potter series.
what country would you like to visit and why? japan, in a heartbeat. ever since i read memoirs of a geisha (and then seeing the film) i've had a mini-obsession with japanese culture. absolutely stunning.
make the last question and answer to yourself - currently reading?a zillion books, but more notably Bill Bryson's "At Home" and a signed copy of Tinkers that I found at the local Indigo. Also, Freeing the Body, Freeing the Mind for my yoga book report. And Diet for a New America. I think thats all!

A few cool iPhone snaps from last Friday- headed to the city for a conference. It was a weird weekend- really foggy, like being in a horror film.
First snap... pulling into one of the train stations.
It cleared up while I was waiting to be picked up for dinner at Fresh, my fave. (I really need to branch out... anyone know any other awesome vegetarian/vegan restos in T.O.?)
By the time she picked me up... the fog was overtaking the city!!
Then I proceeded to take "the girls" out one last time... resulting in possibly the worst hangover of my life. Urgh. Some of the first words out of my mouth post-surg? "I feel drunk". Lol, apparently not uncommon. I'm feeling pretty dece now considering I had fat both cut and sucked out of my chest 4 days ago... weird to think that I've actually had lipo! Odd.
Recovery = lots of movies (including an HP marathon, Love Actually & The Holiday), jewelry making and some schoolwork, although mostly slacking on schoolwork thanks to my fuzzy brain, oops.
Ok, so this outfit isn't too exciting for the 400th post and all, but there you go.
Heading out to have dinner with some former co-workers. Didn't want to go too OTT since they are coming straight from work.
Love this top- I don't wear it enough. And it might not even stay up any longer in 2 more weeks! Simple in the front...
With a little surprise in the back. My hair is the perfect length for it now, too. Although it refused to curl tonight, hence it looking a bit wonky.
Top - Urban Outfitters
belt- from another skirt, F21
jeans - fron JC Penney
not shown: black booties, payless
After months of anticipation, went to see Florence and the Machine tonight.
We started here...
But thanks to some girls with huge mops of hair created a wall of hair obscuring our vision, and also two opening acts (one semi decent, other crap.. the ones pictured) and her not coming on stage til 11 (doors @8), we took advantage of the VIP upgrade to the balcony thanks to Rogers urmusic. We got a seat here...
But still drama galore upstairs. Two girls got kicked out for stealing some girls seats (we wondered why they threw the jacket on the floor). Anyways, Florence finally came on...
And the acoustics in the Sound Academy were terrible, the beautiful harp sounded like crap, and Florence didn't sound like she was trying in about 80% of the songs they played. A few good ones, but definitely would not see again and don't recommend you waste your money either. Blah.
