It's good to be in love

I haven't really posted any pics of my boyfriend yet and he looked amazing the other day so we took some pictures!

He thrifted the jacket! What a genius.

Nathan's jeans: Bluenotes
Tie: Jack & Jones
Jacket: Goodwill
Sunglasses: Rudy Project
Shirt & Belt: I dunno :s

And here's my "photographer extraordinaire" outfit:

Red jacket: H&M
Bubble skirt: Garage, very old
White leggings: American Apparel
Boot: Winners
New glasses, which I am getting used to: Ray Ban

I am drowning in schoolwork, as usual. See you all soon, hopefully, if I survive!

Love Always,

Sunbeam, stop tugging me

So the crappiest of crappy things happened this week. My damn glasses broke. Of course I didn't have a spare. Of course the broke at 8:15 when Lenscrafters closes at 9 and therefore cant make them 'til the next day. Of course I have 10873298 more important things to worry about than broken freakin' glasses. The frame broke, so there's no way my old ones could be fixed. Farewell my gorgeous D&Gs... you have seen many an adventure.

I have really terrible vision so I need to wear my glasses all the time or else I get headaches. Here's the outfit I wore to pick up my new glasses. You can't see, but I had taped the arm of my old glasses on...

Sweater: Jacob
Pencil skirt: Nine West, thrifted
Tights: Accessorize
Shoes: Mom's closet.
Ring & earrings: the stone is Malachite and they're from local jewellery stores

Here are my new glasses... They're Ray Bans and I think they're called the New Wayfarer or something. For some reason they're huge on me (which I love, btw) and make me feel kiiiiinda dorky but I like it.

The cool thing about these is they work with multiple facial expressions/emotions...The above was "staring lovingly at a cookie"

"What do you mean I had to buy new glasses? This sucks :("


Hopefully I'll get used to them.

Love Always,

No one can tell us we're wrong

I wore lingerie to classes on Friday. Hey, not the first time that's happened...

Skirt: silk lingerie from Old Navy
Sweater: Jacob
Tights: Accessorize

Friday, March 5, 2010 shall henceforth be known as "Amy makes dorky faces in outfit pictures" Day.

Everyone needs to do something badass this week. I suggest you listen to some Pat Benatar to get inspired like I did.
Scream out your window into the chilly night air.
Eat only exactly what you want for a day (we should all do this anyway, but I'm talking about not even worrying if you're eating a single fruit or veggie).
Wink at yourself in the public washroom mirror an make sure everyone sees how much you love yourself.
Wear outrageous lipstick and then smudge it off kissing someone.
Step on every single crack in the sidewalk.

Love Always,

Things I would sell my brother for

Yes, folks, it's time again for "Things I would sell my brother for", the posts in which I talk about inanimate objects I would much rather share a house with than my 17-year-old brother.

So I've been looking for a new purse/carry-all bag for over a year now. My current fav was purchased the summer before tenth grade (2005, ya'll) at an fc.UK outlet. I still love this bag, it is perfect for me, but it is understandably falling apart after being hauled through highschool and two years of university.

I am more picky about handbags than probably anything else in my life, even food! I've had maybe 6 or 7 purses that i've used regularly over my lifetime. I scavenge through Winners weekly, plus all other stores in the mall, thrift stores, and consignment stores. NOTHING fits my specifications. I want solid colour, STRUCTURED with an overall square-ish or rectangular-ish shape, no or minimal details such as studs or zippers, no obnoxious brand names or logos, and no draw-strings, quite large in size (has to be able to hold my clipboard for school, water bottle, and at least 4 snacks), and the list goes on.

So far the only two bags I have found (Literally the ONLY TWO. IN OVER A YEAR OF LOOKING) are Coach bags and obviously wayyyy out of my price range. Both of the below bags are priced around $400 if I remember correctly. Would anyone pay that for a 17-year old boy who drinks his weight in orange juice every week?

Part of the "Madison" collection available from Coach.
Drool. Absolutely perfect in every single way. Obviously has a tiny logo, but it's the Coach logo so it's lovely :) I don't like their bags that have the C's all over them, though.

This is the "Large Kristin" bag from Coach.
Beautiful colour. Beautiful structure. I love the short handles and the longer strap option. I would use both of these bags until I died.

On a more practical note, I'm very, very easily irritated and repetitive sounds or conversations on buses or even 5 seconds of whispering in the library can literally ruin my life for the next few hours. I really need to get me some of these noise-blocking earphones (you know, the ones construction workers often use?). Even if no one will buy my brother and I have to pay for these out-of-pocket, it'll be worth it when I can't hear his tv from the next room with these babies on.

Love Always,
