Alright, so happy 2009 (in however many hours that is) everyone! I'm super pumped for tonight, it'll be a blast.

I appreciate all of your input and after alot of consideration I have decided on outfit C. I think it'll be the best one because it's practical enough that I can wear it all evening. I also love that it has really big pockets so that i can keep my camera and my phone with me at all times :). I think I may wear different shoes though.. I'm still deciding there.

So yesterday was quite an adventure if I do say so myself! A few of my friends and I decided to go shopping on seventeenth ave, but we had to take the bus and the c-train to get there. Now, I'll be completely honest; I am horrible at using public transit. Don't get me wrong, I use it everyday to get to school, but that's only two buses that I need to know the routes for and their some pretty main ones. There is also the problem of me only really taking the c-train about 5 times a year because I never really need to. So knowing all this I'm sure you can imagine how it all turned out. We made it from my friends house to the train station okay, and all was going well until we got of a few stops too early. It wasn't that big of a deal though because we were already downtown and the next stop was only about two blocks away. There was also the problem of the temperature. You'd think that three girls who have lived in Calgary their whole lives would know how to dress for the weather, but no. So we didn't really want to wait at a bus stop and take the bus the ten blocks over we had to go. So we decided it would be a fantastic idea to walk there using the +15's, or at least part of the way. So, +15's are pathways connecting a bunch of the main buildings in downtown. That was all a hackshow and a half, but eventually we did make it to 11 ave using those and we knew how to get to seventeenth from there, but it was all quite silly.
Here's some pictures from our adventure:

Have a great new years eve everybody!!

I Feel Like a Flying Squirrel

So right now I'm just chillin at home, and watching BBC news. The traffic was ridiculous when my mom tried to drive me to school today, so she turned around and came home. I swear, when it snows some people just forget how to drive, haha. BUT, it has been snowing which I'm very excited about. I'm pretty pumped to get out skiing again, although I decided that I didn't want to race this year, so instead I've decided I'm going to coach little kids :). How fun will that be?! Haha, I'm very excited though. I love little kids; they're so funny.

So I've got a few outfits for you today. Enjoy!

blaser - divine, shirt - old navy, jeans - forever 21 (I think, they're really old),
belt - winners, necklace - aldo accessories

wow, I look pretty scary here.. haha

jacket - divine

dress - divine, blaser - divine,
necklace - aldo accessories, shoes - payless

sweatshirt - hanes, jeans - forever 21,

I want new shoes..

I really love the show What Not to Wear, I'm watching it right now and the woman on it is 41 and probably in the best shape I have ever seen a 41 year-old is in. Like, wow. She found a really pretty dress that had a tighter top, and then flowed out from under the bust. It had a very pretty floral print, and now I really want one like it lol.

So on tuesday I was at the Rise Against concert, and it was amazing. They played a few songs from their new album. So because I enjoyed it so much, I bought the new album on itunes the next day. I'm already in love with the two songs hero of war, and savior. If you guys are into that kind of music you should definitely check it out.

So, I really want to find some cute dresses for the holidays, even though I probably won't be at any parties, haha. I was just looking at and their ten best dressed for november, and I really liked almost all of the looks, but I absolutely fell in love with this one:

Maria Sharapova wore this to the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Awards in New York on November seventeenth. It's a Richard Chai. I love it to pieces.

I realize that cloning is a subject that most people don’t pay too much attention to, but as I was reading an article about it all I could think about was how completely pointless it all was. Don’t we already have overpopulation issues as it is? I agree that it is very interesting, but I feel that the people who are studying this and spending so much time trying to clone things are wasting their time and money. They are all obviously very intelligent, but wouldn’t it make more sense to put their genius towards coming up with something useful? For example; they could put their biology smarts toward solving the food shortage crisis around the world. I mean come on, there are people out there who can’t afford to feed their families, some don’t even have access to clean water, and these scientists are spending all this money on trying to clone a monkey. Priorities people!! Food for the starving people in third world countries, or asexual reproduction in monkeys; to me, it’s a no-brainer. Okay, well, there’s my rant for the day. I also apologize for any incorrect facts or wording. 

So, right now I’m pretty much just trying to waste time here at school. I actually have been doing a bit of work, but mostly I’ve been reading the news on BBC, and looking up stuff on Wikipedia. I'm going to a concert tonight, but I'll try to post some pictures tomorrow.

Until then, I'll be pondering about the subject of what I'm going to wear to holiday parties this year. I will report back to you with what I've discovered.

I'm looking for something floral

So, my internet hasn't been working for the past few days and that's why I haven't been able to post. Last week I went down to seventeenth ave again, and again I went into Divine, which I'm sure you've figured out by now is my favorite store pretty much ever. Haha :). This time I got a vest, and two sweaters. When one of the girls who worked there asked me if I was looking for anything in particular; I said that I was in the mood for something floral, and she pulls out this adorable cropped cardigan. It's cream colored and has little roses all over it, which is a completely different kind of floral I was thinking of, but I was surprised at how much I loved it. These outfits are from the past few days:

I'm sorry but I am way too lazy to write where I got all that stuff, but if you want to know about any of the pieces just ask me. And I realize that some of these pictures make me look completely awful, but they showed the outfit well.
