Online Retail Therapy

Only net-a-porter can make my dreams reality.
Instead of studying for my final exam tomorrow at 8AM and packing to go home tomorrow night, I made sure that I shopped online first with all the intentions to buy but obviously without the funds to support the action. I torture myself.

Marc Jacobs Asymmetric Velvet Dress
Luella Corset Dress
Rick Owens Peak Shouldered Panel Jacket
Alexander Wang Tank
Stella McCartney Grace Waking Bra
Satin Pants
Marc Jacobs Suede Molded Ankle Boots
YSL Imperiale wedge boots

AND all these items were in the sale section! C'mon right!!!
(except the Stella bra and Wang tank)

I think it's obvious here, I'm

Happiness in 48hrs.

48 hours from now...
I am back in my home town.
I would have had the best sleep in my own room and my own bed.
I would have had the biggest breakfast.
I would have been listening to Christmas carols all morning.
I would be getting ready for my sushi date with Dennis. <3>
Now, to face -43 weather.

I have so many expectations coming home! It's just been too long being away from home!! I just finished two finals and I have one more to go tomorrow morning. I have yet to pack but I will get through it tonight. The weather in Toronto has been really strange lately. One week it's freezing, think -10 (I'm such a tool now, I can't hack the brutality of Winnipeg weather) and the next it's +2 out with drizzling rain. 2012 you guys, the world is at an end, so with that said, live life, carpe diem! And always spend for the moment! And that is why I'm poor.
Anyways. My little kitty Batman will be at my friends house for the 3 weeks I'm away, and I'm hoping he'll cope well and meet new little critters.

ps: I found this awhile back and I must mention how much I love her color palette! It's simply delicious. Now if only I could sport pink trousers as well as she can. My hero.

Fall Exam Crunch Time

Listening to: Queen - Under Pressure

Going home early is the only thing that's keeping me going. I have never been more financially challenged in my life. It's a dose of reality that really gets to you when you're lying down at night and thinking about all the debt that's accumulating in addition to holidays just being around the corner. I've been crabby lately and unappreciative of what I have. This whole time I've been feeling pathetic because I don't own "this" or "that"... I've been so materialistic last year that this year has been a complete turn around from the excessive purchases and dinners that I was so accustomed to back home with family, friends and the boyfriend. I want to say I have the right to be materialistic because that's the industry I've chosen, my sister would argue otherwise with some sort of rationing, but I think this is good for me. I've looked at my wardrobe at least 3 or 4 times a night and really picked out what will last within the next couple years in accordance to quality and carry over classics. I think it's been beneficial in finding out what my true uniform is. I always knew it was dark, monochromatic colors, but I'm really looking to invest in quality pieces now, being broke will just not allow it any other way. Although on the bright side, going home will allow me to scower and raid my favourite vintage and second hand stores. Love you dinky Winnipeg.
-so lastly, it's exam time, last week of school with two major projects left to go. I have an intense interview tomorrow and I'm hoping this will lead me to the beginning of a promising career in fashion forecasting. Wish me luck friends**

Have a great weekend and Happy Holidays!

Origami Home

I`ve been thinking about the holidays and spending it with the family for a good 3 months now. So I`ve been thinking about home, my own place and my room back home. I couldn`t help myself but to look at contemporary homes, property that is out of my reach... for now that is. And it could also be this horrid retail makeover project that I`ve been dreading all week to finish up. That`s another story. Anyways, the home is located in Melbourne and it`s a beaut.

T-23 Days

I wanted to make a post about counting down to going home because I was listening to Pink's song titled who knew. It's a rather sad song but it made me think about everyone I love and how much I missed them back home. You know who you are, if you still read this. ha.

Warning, the following is a rant and rave. Proceed at your own risk of boredom or simply my woes to be your entertainment for the night.
I'm currently juggling a full time schedule. Did I make it that way? Absolutely. Do I want it that way? I have no other choice. Can't afford to not have one of the three out of my life. My internship at FLARE has been amazing and I've been offered (also, I asked.) an extension for my last semester but at the same time I'm wanting to expand to fashion forecasting. Lucky for me, one of my teachers has the strings to pull me an awesome internship to really understand commercial trend forecasting. Fun! ha. Some people think otherwise. No biggie. And that would be in January, and as greedy as I am, I want both internships while working part time and going to school full time. Do-able? Absolutely. I'll just be so burnt out and I need to kiss ass at work to have the perfect schedule. Pressure is on for my last year and upcoming last semester to do as much as I can while I'm in school. ps: Buying test Thursday; I didn't even touch it. It's ok, because this whole weekend I've been scheduling dates with my couch and laptop watching CSI. Ha. Hey now. We all need a little time away from what we want to do in life, and crime scene investigating is a completely different world. Wow, that was lame. Anyways. Rant is over. I've cleared my head, this helped. Back to the goal. That's the thing, it keeps changing. Is that a good thing?
