New Header

The fabulous Davis did my new header! Photo by Milan Ilnyckyj.

Have a good weekend, team. It'll be rainy here, so I think I'll by staying in.

Tea Obsession

I am such a tea junkie. I love tea, all different kinds (except lemongrass. It's a thing. Not sure why.)

Right now I'm totally in love with Zing Me Tea from David's Tea. It's black, so I get to have the milk-and-sugar experience that I love, plus this awesome, uplifting, fruity thing. Yum.

"What happens when you blend Chinese black tea with ginger bits and lush pieces of peach and apricot? An instant feeling of well-being. Aromatherapy claims that peaches can brighten your outlook, and ginger has long been known as a zesty stimulant that perks you up. Apricots are just plain delicious. Drink it hot or cold, for a truly refreshing Chinese tea experience."

Still loving it

I will always love a nice top-of-the-head knot. Even though low buns are on-trend for spring, apparently. The longer my hair gets, the better the buns!

PS: I am drooling over Bee's orange-red J Crew blazer.

Jean Shorts

Dying for high-waisted denim shorts for summer. Maybe this pair, rocked by Tieka of Selective Potential, from Urban Outfitters. High enough in the waist? Unsure.

Also loving these.

Sunny Weather




Jacket and Sequin Sweater: Urban Outfitters | Jeans: Garage | Sunglasses: American Apparel | Bag and Fingerless gloves: Roots | Scarf: street vendor in Paris

I was so warm yesterday I was able to pull out this lighter jacket I bought at the Boxing Day Sales! I sat outside for a couple of hours with my friends and enjoyed feeling the warmth on my face.

I'll be busy this weekend with my little sister and a friend visiting me, and then hunkering down to work over Reading Week (ha. We'll see...).

NYFW Street Style

From the streets of NYC, during Fashion Week. Christina from Trop Rouge.

There is nothing I don't like/want to emulate about this look. Biker Jacket + slouchy shirt and cardigan + jersey maxi skirt + fingerless gloves. Beauty.

Alternative use for nail polish

At the Vena Cava show last week, the models had bands of nail polish on their fingers.

This would crack and flake off by the end of the day, but it looks sooo cool. A neat way to add a pop of colour a la spring '11.

Whatever you feel about today (whether or not it relates to love) have a happy day! I encourage self-medication with chocolate.

PS: These Kate Spade online Valentines are so cute - they take the tackiness out of e-cards, and remind me of grade school Valentines! If only I would get a heart necklace and ring set like Max gave me in grade 1...

Jean Shirt!




shirt: vintage, my mom's |skirt: American Apparel | bag: Spotted Moth | tights: Zellers

My mom sent me a fantastic care package last week, and she remembered my hunt for a denim shirt. She found this one while cleaning out a closet - it's so comfy! Even though it needs some mending, I had to wear it the next day. My mom also gave me the gold and green ring so I guess this outfit is dedicated to my mom.
