Been stressing out this week with classes but everything went better than expected. Stew talked me into photography 101 with him. Had sweet lemon cake pops at Starbucks..those are soo good! ummm..had a school movie fest over at Stew's flat over the weekend..tonz of Freaks n Geeks marathon with vegan brownies, Pretty In Pink, Breakfast Club, Teachers, Go Ask Alice, Welcome to the Dollhouse..


70s Hat: Out of the Past, Necklace: diy.


Finally finished reading Rookie Mag..there was a huge section on Street Harassment & how every girl will experience this in their lifetime. I've experienced it several times & still experiencing it! It just makes my self-esteem go down to a big ZERO. I felt comfort in reading so many stories on this & made me feel that i'm not alone.

I'm totally anxious for classes to start again next week but i don't want to get back into that whole routine if it makes any sense. It's coz i feel afraid sometimes. It's just weird. I found a few inspirational school photos. Doncha just hate that portentous feeling?

I want to talk about the Lana Del Rey Greatest Story Ever Told film which i can't believe i paid $6.78 + tax to rent out of the video shop thinking it will be like the Katy Perry film which was good..i thought it would have stories of her youth growing up, her fashion sense, ummm..& YEAH the music!!!! The documentary actually was only 30 minutes long & it featured 2 of her youtube interviews, the second was absolute crap coz the camera kept moving & cutting off her head, it was almost like a prank! Very annoying!! And when they showed a few seconds of her on stage, the sound was mute, you couldn't hear her performing at all! No music, no nothing. Please if you are a huge fan of hers like me, do not see this film..AVOID AVOID AVOID!

We went to the square where there are boutiques all around..mostly bargain warehouse prices or outlets of designer shops like Guess, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas, Reebok, etc..i got a POW t-shirt from Urban Planet for $6.00..i was super thrilled to find one coz i've been wanting a cartoon top for a while & the KAPOW & POW stuff is the latest craze now..i usually don't follow trends but this is comic strip fun! There was a shop there called Escada..now i thought its full of their perfumes, but the weirdest thing of all is that there was clothing inside & WHOOOOAAAAAA!! that place had tops for $5,876????? WTF????? i picked up a fugly bulky looking belt which had a price of $1,200..who the hell would pay that much for a lousy looking belt?? CRAAAAZY!! There was a tacky dress for $8,999..umm..thats like the price of a cruise ship ticket! This place was a fuckin' joke! it was right beside a shop that sold t-shirts for $5 bucks! This ritzy Hollywood Boulevard shop was right smack in the middle of bargain city..how freakin' weird is that? And we also cracked up about the fact that you can purchase an Escada perfume for $40.oo..cheap perfume, yet the clothing is like Buckingham Palace prices! I couldn't give a shite if their clothes is made in Italy or not, its a rip-off!! The colours were horrid & the patterns were tacky & they were also selling plain looking t-shirts which looked like you can get in Goodwill, selling for $135.00!! I do like Escada's cherry scented perfume though which is affordable in a fair way, but even if i would be a zillionaire, i still would'nt want any of their clothing or shoes..fugly shoes for $6,778! UGH!! Even Versace wasn't THAT expensive when we went to Montreal & looked through that shop.

reblogged from childofthesixtiesforeverandever blog

my attempt at a bouffant which i think came out pretty good

another Nancy Drew book to add to my collection..this was $1.00 at Goodwill

PIZZZZZZAAAAA!! very hot outside today..it feels like the Kalahari without the rhinos, and elephants roaming around which would be heaven though! later on i will be making ratatouille..one of my fav. foods ever.

then i'm meeting up with Shaggy & the gang to go to the drive-in..*i wish*
(Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine wall deco was given to me by a friend in the UK)

I'm sooooo pissed off..i got this lovely gift from a friend..these huge silver hoop earrings & it was purchased at Claire's..when i was putting it for the first time in my ear, the freakin' clasp broke off!! I've brought back a gift that broke before to Ardene's & they were very nice to give me an exchange, i never want my money back..just always exchange if i have a merchandise that breaks without even wearing it ever! I think its fair if i am given an exchange, well, Claire's did not give me an exchange at all! I told them it was a gift, never worn, they could see the merchandise for themselves, it was in pristine condition minus the fact that the bloody clasp was broke off, so i could never wear just one earring! they had the same pair, quite a few there, but they refused to give me an exchange..when i told my friend that, she was furious as well! I think Claire's policy sucks!! I'm never shopping there again!

Had a groovy time with mom on Mother's Day! The weather was way tooo cold & rainy and we couldn't go to the park for a picnic like we did last year, so we ended up going to see "The Great Gatsby" which was a good film, the only problem i had was that it was in 3-D and half-way through the film, i got a headache and my eyes were totally sore! :( Made my mom Swedish tiger cake and mom had fun opening up her pressies.

Watched Eat Street last night and i was super thrilled to see Marky Ramone's Cruisin' Kitchen food truck!!!! How awesome is that! Marky even has his own line of homemade pasta sauce! Mmmmmmm..those blitzkrieg balls looked soo yummy! His food truck roams that streets of New York City. They're trying to bring in food trucks to my area but the restaurants are arguing that the food trucks will take away their business which i think is a bunch of horse pucky!! I think food trucks is what Canada needs..this country is boring enough!

I wore my hair in a bouffant today and got compliments in class :)
