They hear we got swagger

You know those days you feel a little bit like a complete wreck but then your outfit makes you feel great and you totally and completely forget that you're fooling everyone into thinking you're chic because you're actually a mess who writes non-sensical blog posts around midnight on a friday night? Yeah. I know those days well.

New favourite shirt: thrifted, $5

I got this shirt just last weekend and have already worn it 3 or 4 times. In my defense, some of those wears were only for a few hours.

In other news, I also bought this the other day and I lovelovelove it:

Learn more about the M.A.C. Viva Glam campaign/collection here.. Cyndi and Gaga are doing an awesome job promoting Viva Glam, especially by speaking out about safe sex and HIV/Aids awareness and prevention.

"Women need to protect themselves. I don't want Viva Glam to be just a lipstick you buy to help a cause [all profits go to the MAC AIDS Fund]. I want it to be a reminder when you go out at night to put a condom in your purse right next to your lipstick. Let's be strong women together. You put that condom in your purse and save your own fucking life. " -Gaga, to Marie Claire Magazine

Love Always,

April, come she will...

I worked out today and drank a bunch of orange juice, which made me feel summery. I didn't have to bus to work today, so i wore a summery outfit :) Strangers told me i looked cute. Mission Accomplished.

Dress: Costa Blanca
Cardigan: Jacob
Shoes: Found in mom's closet
Freshwater Pearls: Gift to myself. For no reason, obviously...
Hairflower: H&M

Ever worn an outfit that made you feel giddy with happiness?

Everyone should try to wear a summery outfit whenever the weather permits for the next few months. I guarentee it'll brighten your day until the flowers and sunshine can :)

Love Always,

A heart can hallucinate

Let's be real: I've never gotten past the part where Alice falls down the rabbit hole in that freakin' book. However, I've seen the Disney cartoon version of Alice in Wonderland and the whimsy of the franchise has always appealed to me.

Even though I never liked the book enough to get anywhere near through it, here's why I know I'll like the Tim Burton adaptation:

1. I like Tim Burton shit.
2. I've never not liked anything Johnny Depp has been in, or even been NEAR (including street dirt, lamposts, etc.)
3. Helena Bonham Carter freaks the shit out of me for some reason (probably because I'm a huge Potter nerd and she played Bellatrix Lestrange, who I consider to be even freakier than Voldemort), but she completely captivates and intrigues me.
4. 3D movies in general are THE BOMB (I pity anyone who didn't get to see Monsters vs. Aliens in 3D. I liked it more than "Up")
5. The OPI limited edition nailpolishes rock my world

Everywhere, EVERYWHERE is sold out of the two middle colours, "Absolutely Alice" and "Mad as a Hatter". I've been waiting to get my hands on them for a little over a week now, and today i finally nabbed the last bottles of both from a random hole-in-the-wall hair salon at the mall. I flipped a shit and basically told the salon lady that she had made me the happiest person in the world. I've seriously been dreaming about my nails being "Alice" blue.

Can't wait to try my Mad as a Hatter polish, too. But I should probably start studying first... These nailpolishes have been pretty much my only reading week accomplishment so far.

Love Always,
