I've been seeing so many mini pancakes that I decided to make some of my own :)
c'est la vie. Reading week! semain de *lecture (thanks leslie for the correct phrase haha !:)
caught up with some movies:
Easy A (laugh out loud)
Rosemary's baby 1968(only watched it because dan humphrey and Blaire waldorf decided to)
Matilda (childhood book I read by ronald dahl)
127 hours (based on real story, not good!)
I was going to be spontaneous and jump on the train to Montreal, alone, but family and friends all contrived that I'll get robbed and kidnapped, etc. So instead I've been doing some sewing, reading Dead Tomorrow (which is so good, kinda dark.) and maybe build a snowman,( I even got the carrot nose and buttons ready!).
made the pokadot skirt below. After much debate of how to use the beautiful 100% silk fabric.
still need to insert zipper.
I was deathly ill last weekend (aka the long weekend!) and bf bought me this rose that bloomed ever so gracefully. It's still alive despite over a weeks allotment.
Spring is coming (ish)
P.S. I've been meaning to share some foodie places:
a yummy restaurant on Spadina and Bloor street I went to for Winterlicious: It is exactly what the name suggest- Food served on a stone grill. Awesome atmosphere in a not too small not too big restaurant. It's cool watching your food cook but gets a little confusing for me as I was like "is my fish done?!" awesome concept though. Appetizers =meh, dessert YUM. Beware of splashing oil though.
Spent the day downtown with my parents and brother. Congratz to bro for getting a job finally for coop, had lovely brunch at Sutton Place Hotel in celebration, bro and I shopped (finally got a new jacket, at Jacob, such a steal! I'm starting to feel old when my favourite stores are Jacob and Club Monaco) and on Bloor street was some filming! -for a Xmas movie I presume as Santa Clauses were flaunting around, didn't recognize any actresses though. Oh how exciting Downtown is! Then a LCBO run with the family, we might take some wine/ cocktail course! The afternoon dt ended off at DUFFLET, an amazingly adorable floral, coffee and cake store. Super yum cappucinos.
