Cheers to 2011

I drove for miles just to find you and find myself
Only screams all these voices in my head
You gave me strength gave me hope for a lifetime
I never was satisfied

This time won't you save me; this time won't you save me
Baby I can feel myself giving up, giving up

It's a new year and I am taking some time to re-evaluate myself, my habits and my life.
I am loving my new semester at school.  Way more useful and less stressful than last semester.
My job is really mellow and I have a lot more time coming up to do what I love which is writing, fashion, blogging, and promotions-- I really want to go above and beyond for my blog.  I haven't been using my new camera much or utilizing my creativity in the way that I want.
I have been hardly updating at all but I PROMISE this will change.
Expect big things for 2011 from my blog.
Thank you so much for reading!
I will do a belated Christmas post in the next week to post some of my goodies and hopefully get an outfit up for you too.  Fashion trends and tips coming up too!
For now just a few pictures taken with my Blackberry from New Years and my Alberta trip. 
I was visiting with my best friend and dad for two weeks and here are some highlights from my trip.
My Deadmau5 hat!! I found it on a table at the concert my best friend took me to.  Deadmau5 for those who don't know is a DJ from Toronto and he definitely rocks the crowd!!  I've met him before at Guvernment years ago and he kind of creeped me out.  He definitely has skill though!!
Pre-club drinks.  We had champagne and my favourite mixed drink, tequila & tonic.
Getting ready at my best friend's condo!  We decorated a bit as well.
My best friend decorating her condos and some yummy martinis I made.
Dancing up a storm at the club!  The necklace was given to me by my best friend too.
Drunk eyes - love Nat's make up.  She took a make up artist course so she definitely has skills.
Countdown!!!  Deadmau5 only played for an hour and he didn't come on til midnight so everyone was chanting his name at this point.
Cheers!  Happy New Years!!!!!

    i would love for you to check out my blog and tell me what you think !

  11. tequila and tonic? you dirty bird! haha jkjk.

    just got your comment re: pr opportunities out west. I'll be honest, there aren't many. the market in toronto is much better. vancouver's fashion industry is small and is really saturated on top of that. I think if you're looking to intern and find a job based on your internship, your chances are better in TO :(

    but vancouver in the summer is beautiful, so I don't blame you for wanting to come out here! I might be looking for an intern for the summer, so shoot me an e-mail closer to and we can chat. Even if I'm not, I'll be able to put you in touch with colleagues who are :)

    good luck with your last semester and congrats on your upcoming grad!
