Beats Ahoy

Caught up in circles, confusion is nothing new
Flash back warm night, almost left behind
Suitcase of memories
Time after sometime you pictured me
I'm walking too far ahead
You're callin' to me
I can't hear what you've said
Then you said, "Go slow, I fall behind"
The second hand unwinds

If you're lost you can look and you will find me
Time after time
If you fall I will catch you, I'll be waiting
Time after time


This weekend was really busy so I didn't have a chance to do any blogging.  I worked at the bar a lot and played my harp at a wedding on Saturday afternoon.  Sunday was amazing weather and I went on a boat cruise to hear lots of trance and house music, which toured around Lake Ontario.  I wouldn't recommend touching (or going too close to) the water, but it is definitely a beautiful sight at night or on a sunny day.  Here are some pictures from the cruise!  My exciting news is that I have a new job at a really nice restaurant in the GTA, on top of my bartending gig up in the boonies.  I will be serving or bartending during the week and it's very classy and will give me some more shifts to save up for my new camera that I will have hopefully this month!  Tomorrow is June, my favourite time of year is here.  Hope you all enjoy your summers :)
Waiting in line.  I kept seeing the guy with the 1987 shirt; that's the year I was born :)
My Calvin Klein shoes I bought in Vegas.  I got a lot of compliments on the dress; it went with the nautical vibe for sure!

Pictures from on the boat!  As you can see it was a beautiful day.  In my opinion Toronto has one of the nicest skylines!  Take a look at the next picture and let me know if you agree :)

I don't know if you can tell, but the water is really polluted.  They recommend not letting it touch your skin at all.  Such a shame, but definitely doesn't bring the property value around the lake down any lower.

I'm wearing:
Dress - Urban Behaviour
Shoes - Calvin Klein
Purse - Le Chateau
Sunglasses - Ralph Lauren

More details on my new job soon :)

Outfit - Black and pink

Looking in your eyes,
While you're on the other side,
I can't take it no more baby I'm coming for you

You're doing it on purpose, wind it and work it
If we close our eyes it could just be me and you
I wanna make love in this club...

If there is one trick I use the most from the winter to summer season it is definitely blending my darker colours with lighter, brighter ones.  About half my wardrobe is only black and grey, so I love adding a bright or pastel highlight to an outfit.  Getting ready for work I realized I had a black "leather" skirt and a tube top on, and I threw on a light sheer scoopneck in pale pink to step away from looking like I am going to a funeral.
When I have more time this weekend I have a few exciting stories to share one of them involves getting slightly too intoxicated at my favourite club, the other is a surprise. Of course there will be more pictures!  I feel an inspiration post coming on soon too.  The weather is getting really nice here 30+ Celcius!  Hope it is sunny and warm where you are as well.

Outfit - Pastel pink

Time is never time at all,
You can never ever leave,
Without leaving a piece of youth...
And our lives are forever changed,
They will never be the same
The more you change, the less you feel...


Happy long weekend!  I'm not sure about you but here in Canada the weather gets really beautiful around this weekend and we celebrate Victoria day or May 24, which means a lot of drunks.  A lot of people choose to go to their cottage so the nightlife at my bar is hit and miss.  So far I have made a lot of money and been very busy this week!  I have the afternoon off before my night shift so I thought I'd post a quick outfit before heading out.

Natural makeup!  I am wearing a bit of concealer, eyebrow pencil and one coat of mascara.
Close up of my old kilt.  I have no idea where I got it I've had it since elementary school.  The belt is a DIY piece of silk made into a belt and tied into a bow :)  My top is from Winners and my sweater is from Guess!

What is everyone doing this weekend?
Tomorrow is FREEDOM at GUVERNMENT which is my favourite club and I'm going!
Here is the lineup:

Outfit - Nautical

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did so. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

The Chanel Cruise line combined with the nicer weather has inspired me to dress with a nautical influence.   I chose a dress I picked up at Mango a while back and paired it with a cardigan, some knee high socks (of course) and some comfortable, lower white heels.  Just a quick post; heading to work!
In my bedroom!  I hate the carpet so much but my mom insists we keep it.  Sigh!
Bathroom!  Sitting on the floor was basically the only way to get a full outfit shot with my Macbook!
Dress details on the front as well as a close up of my layered necklace :)
More dress details!
Navy blue knee socks and old Le Chateau heels.
Ready to head out the door and go start work at the bar!!  I don't know why I look so grumpy, I'm really not :) :)
Cheers everybody!

Dress: Mango
Shoes: Le Chateau
Bag:  FCUK

Chanel Cruise 2011

"In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different."
"A girl should be two things: classy & fabulous."
“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself.  Aloud.”
"As long as you know men are like children, you know everything!"

--Coco Chanel

The Chanel Cruise lines are always so exciting, and I love the mini videos.  Next season is so inspirational!  I love all the colours and patterns, I'm trying to decide if I like the showcase as much as last year's sunset version.  Here are a few of my favourite photos from the line!
Pink white and black is probably my favourite colour combination especially for spring and summer.
Loving the pastels as well!
This is a really fun look and the best part is that the shorts look like you could pretty much get a version anywhere for cheap.
I am just adoring the socks in this photo!  Really fun frock, in the classic Chanel black and white.  Such a fabulous, classy look!
More black and white, amazing mixing of textures and patterns!
I love this dress and he picked a gorgeous, full figured model to work it!  She looks fabulous and we should definitely see more women like her on the catwalk.
Absolutely stunning detail.  I would have added some black to the necklace personally I do not like how it matches with the rest of the outfit.
Gorgeous dress.  I want it!  The necklace really adds to the outfit this time.
This hat goes back to the roots of classic Chanel but adds a funky, delicate feminine touch with the trimming.  The dress is stunning as well.
I love the cream colour and details on this skirt suit.  I would probably be too scared to wear it but it is absolutely stunning, would look great if you had a tan!

That wraps up my favourite looks :)  A quick outfit post of what I wore yesterday, and I'll start getting ready for my day today!

Outfit - Argyle harp

I tell you one lesson I've learned
If you want to be something in life
You ain't gonna get it unless
You give a little bit of sacrifice
Sometimes before you smile you've got to cry
You need a heart that's filled with music
If you use it you can fly
If you want to be high


If there is one thing people are always surprised to learn it is that I play the harp.  I started when I was 7 and I play at weddings sometimes for fun and extra cash.  Along with my outfit post I am attaching a video of the most popular song I play at weddings, called Pachelbel's Cannon.  Let me know what you think!

 This is the smaller of my two harps, believe it or not.

You can see my bigger harp in front of my smaller one.  It has pedals instead of levers for sharps and flats!  If you don't know music this will mean nothing to you. :)
Me on my upstairs balcony at home.
More detail on the argyle socks.

I'm wearing:
Tanktop - H&M - 6$
Skirt - Urban Behaviour - 10$
Sweater - Guess
Socks - Ardene
Boots - United Colors of Benneton

And now for my harp video :)  Enjoy!

Outfit - Soft jersey

People think that I'm crazy, just cause I wanna be alone
You can't depend on friends to help you in a squeeze
We all deal with shit on our own
And sometimes the beef can grow, get out of hand
Yeah, you know it gets full blown
I never said that you mean the world to me
Maybe it's best that you never know


I love soft clothing.  The first thing I always check is the material because it is equally as important to me how the garment looks and feels.  Some of my favourites are jersey cotton, silk, satin, and cashmere.  Here is a quick outfit, all the garments are made from jersey cotton mixed with spandex.  This allows for me to move around easier at work and keeps me comfortable all night.  It is a little hazy this weekend but Toronto is promised gorgeous weather tomorrow and it is my day off!  As for tonight, I am heading to Starbucks then to work.  I usually get an iced grande white mocha, lactaid since I am lactose intolerant!  No cheese, no milk, no ice cream, no pizza!  Torture!  Here is my outit for the evening at the bar.  I am only there for four hours tonight so I don't have to worry about sore feet.  I spent this afternoon shopping and picked up a few dresses, I have some events and promotions coming up.  Check them out too!

Blurry bathroom pic!!! Yuuup...  The best kind.  :)
Trying to get the shoes!

Here are the dresses I picked up today!  I spent about 65$ in total so not bad at all!  Stay tuned for outfit posts.

They are all straplessssss....  Time for a close up of some details :)
Both these dresses are from Urban Behaviour.
Dress 19$ from Winners down from about 70$.

So excited to dress them up!  Ooops I'm going to miss Starbucks if I don't head out!
