School's out!

I am so excited. School is finally over and it's summertime. Well, actually, I didn't quite finish Social Studies, so I have to go to school for the rest of the week to try and finish it. Let's be honest though; now that some of my friends have cars, I haven't gotten too much done. We're always going on Tim Horton's runs (for those of you outside of Canada, you are seriously missing out on Tim Horton's.), or on some kind of adventure! However I will do my very best to finish it off; there's nothing worse than doing grade ten work in grade eleven, except maybe doing grade ten work in grade twelve.....

In my absence from blogging for the past little while I have accumulated a few ideas, photos and all-round epicness to share with you guys.

The first and most important being my new bedroom, which my good friend Danielle and I decided to decorate one day after her making a comment about how boring it was. So we went on an exploration around my house to find things to make it more "Suzanne-like". It was actually very fun. One of my favorite pieces that we found is a rug that my Dad had gotten when he travelled around Asia before university. I also found these suitcases that I had painted when I was younger. I always thought they were pretty cool, although admittedly I was not the best artist when I was younger.... Never the less, they are there! I also found this stone horse that my Dad has had forever and Danielle gave me a little heck for it, as it's a fairly unattractive horse. However, it's something that I have always loved, so I put it in there anyways.
Here it is:

Also, I've mentioned in a previous post that I decided to boycott all Chinese products and told you that I'd keep you posted. Well, it is very difficult. Today in particular, as I was in BCBG and my Danielle convinced me to try on this really cute mini dress for fun even though it was made in China. Needless to say, I fell in love with it. I was not a happy camper when I had to leave the store without it. I was extremely surprised to find that BCBG was made in china, as they're a higher end brand that, in my opinion, should be made in places with higher quality clothing making history. But hey, that's life!
