Weekend shenanigans (and more snoodisms)

(long post, you have been warned)

Thanks for all the feedback on the last post. I got quite a few new book recommendations and will definitely be looking into them. I also got a few recommendations that are favourites of mine but that I had completely forgotten as I listed books off the top of my head (so thank you once again :). Also, I'm humbled by all your comments on my photography. I've been an avid photography enthusiast for ages and it's a passive hobby of mine. I'm saving money for a Canon Rebel XTI but thus far have relied on good light and just what feels right. I cannot wait to invest in a decent camera and take my hobby to new obsessive limits (probably :)

Antoine of floril├Ęge d'esth├Ęte meanwhile informed me that he had forwarded the following blog award on to me. Antoine's blog is a delight and his posts are intelligent and a must-read. Thank you Antoine, it is a pleasure to be awarded this :)


This past weekend comprised of gift shopping, coffee drinking, Gracie's birthday celebrations, Ellie's and my discussions about shoes, shopping and other randomness, overdosing on delicious punch and the inevitable tipsy-ness (although Charlie was more drunk than the rest of us....were you drinking beforehand??!!), catching up with friends I hadn't seen in a while and meeting new ones, unveiling the snood and convincing Charlie and my mother that they needed one like they needed air, staging a photoshoot featuring Stuart (photos to come) and more caffeine intake. Fun times.

the yellow ball = the side effects of severe storms!

my max shop leather jacket, I love her so...



happy birthday Gracie! (check out the pimpin' gold jacket Charlie has on :)

"but...that's what he said..."

gold jacket love.....

the birthday girl shimmying

wrecking shots, its what I do best :)

if I found these in a size 5.5, I'd buy them in a heartbeat...

....and Ellie agrees with me!


I just watched Camille's video on shredding tees (yes it's a little late but hey better late than never, right) and am committed to shredding a tee....let's see how that goes given my shorter-than-short attention span. Results to follow....???

The tee shredding thing is really actually fun. Do it while you're watching TV or something.

Looks like you had an awesome weekend. Still Sunday here in the states but I have to work all day while my friends go to the beach. Do you feel sorry for me yet?
