I've been really slow with replying all your lovely comments lately because..... wait for it.......

I MOVED OUT! to the HEART of Downtown.

It's been crazy, exciting, refreshing and a little lonely.

Danier Leather Jacket, 
Scarf from Japan, 
US shorts, 
Mexx purse

I had a sad little day today, it started pretty nice as I was breathing in the fresh downtown air (oxymoron, I know, but it's all psychological) and got to school in a snap. Then slowly the tedious classes and the dull drone of drafting and sewing teachers' voices tore down my enthusiasm and seven hours later I was released back into the world.
  As I approach the subway station I realized I couldn't find my TTC token, I'm struggling to balance my muslin, notebook and Markers(huge roll of patterns) in one hand while trying to find my wallet with the other. I ended up having to take my sewing box out of my purse -which dropped and vomited all its shit on the floor. GREAT...
  The walk home greatly contrast the mornings when you're carrying 20 pounds of stuff and sweating in a leather jacket. Then home sweet home right?
No! I sat on one of those high bar chairs at my kitchen and as I checked my voicemail I managed to entangled my bare legs and fell off a 3feet high chair. It was quite a long and hard way down.

Now. Happy thoughts. Happy thoughts. 

I really adore these sexy lace-ups. I spotted them in Cosmopolitan and drooled a little. Are they not the sexiest. I'm not a huge fan of red but these bad boys would be absolutely beautiful with a casual neutral dress.

and with the coat on the right, which I also adore.

Anyone else notice how fast it took for Toronto to mutate from frolicking in next-to-nothing to Coat, scarf and mitts wearing weather?
First time rock climbing, such a cheap, exhilarating sport. Can't wait to go again!

I apologize for the quality of my photos, Just humour me while I take candid photos with my phone.
my friend made fun of my lame non-collage on the wall so I actually changed it up :P
anyone hit CNE? I finally splurged on a Konad Stamping Nail Art set at the CNE.
Harder to do than it looks but super fun
 Finally a couch in the living room, Fabulous wall art stickers sold at the dollar store beside me!
$8 Pillow from Walmart (though, from experience, please make sure your pillow doesn't smell like barf)

This is officially my favourite summer place, Menchies!
Nothing more liberating than building your own frozen yogurt treat. Peach is the best, hands down

How did your summer go? Can you believe it's already September !


p.s. tomorrow is my first day of training at a new job. I'm finally paid more than minimum because of past experience, I feel like I got promoted in life! even if it's 50 cents..

p.p.s. what do you think of the sheer maxi skirt trench?

Konad is easy once you get use to it. The couch and wall decal you used look great together, moving and decoration is a pain. Menchies is the business, my favorite froyo place hands down, just wish there was once closer in my area.
