Impulse Control

Do you ever just want to smack someone upside the head?  Honestly, when did that go out of style?  I have at least three good instances in a week where I think someone just plain old deserves a good smack upside the head.  You know, a nice and easy, not too hard, smack just to shake some things around and hopefully uproot the common sense that has been lying dormant in there.  I know, I’m a very cheerful and optimistic person….I’m assuming that they have some common sense to shake up.  

Embracing The Chaos

I’ve given up I think.  The photobombing appears to be here to stay.  Even worse, every time I pull out the camera she finds a spot right in front, turns to me, and says “cheese!”  She thinks it’s all about her.  I guess that’s my fault, what with following her around with a camera since minute one.  So I’ve decided to embrace it rather than fight it.  This is my life, this is my fashion.
I guess it makes sense.  I’m not one of those immaculately put together fashionistas you see on the internet everywhere.  I don’t have every single hair perfectly in place, and I often do have toddler food on my clothes.  So it makes sense that my pictures are just as messy as me.

Joie de Vivre

Just so you know, I’m obsessed with jackets lately.  It seems that every shop I visit I’m supernaturally drawn to their jackets.  It’s probably the dropping degrees in the weather that have me reaching for fun outerwear, but then again it might be something else.

Maybe I’m searching for ways to cover up.  Maybe I’m searching for the perfect finishing touches.  Maybe it’s my new Joie de Vivre over the film shoots and auditions and wonderful feedback.  

Jackets, as a metaphor for life and the soul.  Who knew I could be so profound?
Certainly, not me.

Maybe jackets are just really cute, end of story.

I Won’t Start A Fight But I Will Finish One

Leaving the checkout, I notice the lady in the next aisle looking at Baby Girl snacking on a single serving bag of chips shaking her head.  She then looks at me with a dirty look.  Totally ticks me off when women judge each other’s ability to mother.  Lady, what do you know?

Yes, maybe once a month Baby Girl gets a single serving of chips all to herself.  There is nothing wrong with that.  And perhaps, you should compare our shopping carts before you shake your head at me.

Mine:  Kale, beets, cucmber, avocado, mixed nuts, bananas, almond milk, rice ice cream, apples, lemons, fresh chicken breasts, drumsticks, bag of basmati rice, cashew butter, eggs.

Hers:  McCain frozen meal, Frozen pizza, white wonder bread, big hunk of cheese, bag of cookies, sandwich meat, some frozen cooked meat, ketchup, lettuce, tomatoe.

I wasn’t judging you before *because I just don’t care*  but I certainly am now. 

You know what they say about people who live in glass houses right?
Don’t be throwin’ no s@#t around!

Stinky Smelly

Shirt – Lucca Couture
Jacket – F21
Necklace – Lustre in Montreal
Jeans – Gap
Shoes – Threadsence
Bad Smells. You know you love ’em.  I ride my bike through this one path right near the slaughterhouses, and the smell is well, I’m sure I don’t need to describe it for you.  Then we’re out for a walk around the pond and there’s this one tiny spot where it smells like sweaty feet, poo, and old food all at the same time.
So of course, I stop right there to take some outfit pictures.
True Story:
 Andrew and I are fast asleep. 
We suddenly hear Baby Girl rustling about in her crib.  
She suddenly says, “I got it.  I got it. I GOT IT!”
She’s fast asleep.  Talking.

Southern Belle and All

 Threadsence Hi-Lo top // Gap tank & jeans // Lustre, Montreal zebra necklace // F21 sunnies // Payless shoes

How y’all doin’ today?  Me, I’m speaking and thinking in a southern accent. And I can’t shake it for the life of me.  So that’s how you should read today’s post – with a southern accent.   This always happens when I watch too many episodes or films about the southern United States.  I suddenly start speaking like Lemon from Hart of Dixie.  Like some southern belle, or actually more like one of them cowboys.
I was always more inclined that way, never really wishing to be a southern belle.  Nope – broken in jeans, a plaid flannel shirt with a some open buttons, cowboy boots, and a great ol’ big cowboy hat is always how I imagined myself if I was from the south.  Yeah, I think that would be just fine.
Too bad I’m not though.  Can-eh-jun through and through, from Torrono  *for those of you not familiar it’s “Canadian” and “Toronto” – sorry a bit of an injoke for us Canucks*

True Story:
Baby was at the pond and as every duck flew in to land on the pond – and there were a lot of them – she said to each one of them, “Good Moning Ducks!” 
Now doesn’t that just break your heart?

Don’t Hate The Zebra

Dress – Threadsence

Belt – F21
Shoes – Ruche
Necklace – Lustre boutique in Montreal
I’m clearly obsessed with this new necklace of mine.  I’ve already worn it three times already*here and here* and I can’t see myself getting sick of it anytime soon.  So I hope you don’t hate it and don’t get sick of it either.
On another matter, I can’t seem to get my butt into the salon for a cut.  This mop of mine needs some styling but for some reason I just keep delaying it and wondering if one day I won’t wake up with magically cut hair.  That happens, right?
