I am now officially on holidays!  This is the first year I have opted for a slightly longer Christmas vacation, and I am pretty excited.  We don’t have much planned other than visiting with friends and family.  I am very much looking forward to two weeks of relaxing, sewing, skiing, and maybe painting the basement (it needs a facelift – the walls are currently a terrible color of puke yellow…).

I caved and took some indoor photos this week.  I figure that you might actually like to see my winter outfits sans my outdoor boots.  Plus, it has been cold – I currently have zero motivation to photograph outside. 

I also spent some time updating my outfit gallery this week (another tactic to avoid going out in the cold) – all of my outfits are finally easily browse-able (is this a word?) in one place. 


Plaid shirt and dress pants

Finally…another outfit post.  Apologies on the short break.  I had pneumonia.  It was pretty terrible.  Fortunately, my doctor gave me some great antibiotics that have nearly cleared up the problem. 
Between naps, I spent a good portion of last week browsing the interbox for entertainment.  Watched some Netflix, caught up on Jersey Shore, and entered a whole bunch of online draws (fingers crossed!).  Let me tell you – a non-stop week of excitement (not) (do people still say that?).

A ‘back to work’ Tuesday…

I was fortunate enough to have a long weekend (thanks to the Canadian Thanksgiving weekend), however I feel like I accomplished very little despite having three days off… So while I feel quite rested, I am really disappointed that I didn’t get through my to-do list…

Happy Valentine’s Day

I wish I could say I had a red-and-pink-themed outfit to wear for valentine’s day, but, to be honest, I almost totally forgot about the pseudo-holiday.  Instead, I am posting one of my yet-to-be seen remix outfits that contains at least some red (a colour I don’t often wear).  This way, at least my blog is slightly “festive”.  That is, if you call my thrifted plaid shirt “festive”…

In much cuter valentine’s day news, my brother (an aspiring chef) cooked my parents and I dinner on the weekend.  He was testing out a new recipe that he is planning to cook for his girlfriend on valentine’s day.  It was delicious.  I am sure the gf will love it 🙂
