Bedside Blogging

I'm alive!  I'm alive!  It's been a while, and I'm not just talking about my shoes.  Life has been busy lately and blogging took a short-term back seat.  This weekend I'm playing Nurse to my girlfriend who had surgery on Thursday.  We are lying in bed, getting in plenty of movies and started watching Audrina (have you seen it?  I hadn't and am now addicted... sadly there are only seven episodes and we are on the fourth already).  It's pretty gloomy out and the weather is calling for thunderstorms (um, perfect movie watching weather, right?) all weekend.



So I must admit I've been kind of crushing on neon colours lately... more specifically neon & grey.  The combo is so fantastic and perfect for summer.  The only problem?  The only neon I own are nail polishes and while those are fun, they aren't exactly the neon-noticability (did I just make up a word?) I'm looking for.  This is mainly the reason I resolved in April to make a skirt... a neon green skirt (okay, it's more like light lime with a hint of neon, but baby steps... baby steps)... which still isn't completed.  Le sigh.

Old Navy top, Mossimo skirt, BCBG heels, Suzy necklace, Auslini bangle & F21 ring

I stopped by my parent's place the other evening and convinced my mom to take my outfit shots for me (she did a good job, 'eh? Yes, I just said 'eh' because that's what we do in Canada).  Despite it looking beautiful out, it was chilly and I had to bribe her with dinner and one free voucher to vacuum her house.  Okay, that's not true.  I didn't have to bribe her but I did have to vacuum. ... Okay, that's not true either, she did it out of the goodness of her own heart.  Aw.  Aren't moms great?

 Mexx cardigan (last seen here), Sirens dress, Promise sandals (last seen here), Gucci sunglasses & F21 necklace

A couple weekends ago I got up earlier than normal, did random stuff around the house, got dressed and went out to get groceries (something I never attempt on a Saturday).  This was before the seven straight days of rain we've had.  Oh sunshine, won't you please come back?  Oh right, and I forgot the cliché blogger tagline: and this is what I wore.

I had to share this. The lengths this guy went to in proposing to his girlfriend is just unreal. It's so sweet. It's so special. It's so amazing, and it's comedic. And it's all captured 'in the movies'. Enjoy.


Teach Me How to Dougie

 Poet dress, Aldo wedges (last seen here), gifted necklace (from natalie's sentiments), unknown bangle & bracelet, Swarovski bangle & Charlotte Russe ring

I used to dance when I was younger... jazz, lyrical, tap and (my personal fave) hip hop.  I still dance (weekly zumba classes) but that and my poppin'-n-lockin' in tha club ain't the quite the same.  Sometimes I look up choreography on YouTube but getting into something choreographed in my (small) home office isn't exactly what I had in mind.  It's kind of like trying to dance in a limo. Tight. And not good.

"Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down."  Dayum.  

Only cool people who can Dougie* can ride in the limo with me 

*Thanks Caitlin.

I'm kidding.  I never talk in the third person.  Except today.
