I guess I have normal person hair now ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ I usually go to Good Day Hairshop and either get 1. grey or 2. a weird colour like pink or peach or blue or purple but this time I asked for blondeish so I guess I’m an grown-up now?? Ha, hahahaha. Never. L’Oreal sent me some of their new temporary hair colour anyway (Thanks guys!!!) so I’m going back to pink for a bit.
So, don’t ask me what the heck this thing is. It’s a big, pink, park, thing. Probably for working out or something, therefore I know nothing about it. It’s near my pal Erica’s condo so we thought it would be cute for a Valentines Day shoot. Oh lordy lordy. I’m trying to write this post and I’m seeing double because I’m SO TIRED. I really don’t have much to say anyway, other than I hope everyone had a nice V-day whether you’re single or attached. Just got a really weird image in my head of a creepy conjoined couple?? Goodnight.

So, I had never heard of Uniqlo until they came to Canada a few months ago. I figured, cool, another straight sized retailer whose clothes won’t fit me. When I posted on Facebook about wanting a plain turtleneck (no lettering, no stupid cold shoulder, no boob keyhole- fat retailer’s go-tos), a bunch of people told me that Uniqlo’s XL’s are quite roomy. I tend to like my clothing quite oversized so this top is a bit small for my liking, but it does still fit. And it has their fancy Japanese heat technology~~~ to keep you super warm. Or something. Also, it was $14 so I really can’t complain.
I’m really looking forward to springggGGgg so I can wear more culotte/sandal combinations. These shoes are THE MOST COMFORTABLE pair of heels I’ve ever worn in my life. I wore them on New Years and my feet weren’t even slightly sore (uh, from what I can remember).
Pants- Asos (on sale for like $25!!)
Coat- New Look
I’m sad to report that since these photos were taken, these jeans have been tossed. R.I.P, every pun intended. Every time I wore them the giant rip (which wasn’t there when I bought them, thanks thighs) grew closer and closer to my vagina. It got to the point where when I sat down you could literally see my entire leg from my underwear to my ankle so I thought it was time to give them up.
Loving this sweater though. Even though the sleeves aren’t full length it’s super cozy and warm. It reminds me so much of a boucle jacket my mom wore all the time when I was younger (which I still have in my closet). I remember once when I was probably 13 I wore the jacket to a sleepover, and I missed her so much that I used it as a pillow because it smelled like her. CUTE. It probably doesn’t fit me anymore since my mom was pretty thin, but I still like to keep it. Having a bunch of her things around makes me miss her a little less. Last week was the 3 year anniversary of her death so it’s been a little tough.
On THAT note, hope everyone is staying warm and getting through the January blues. xo

I am definitely 100% the biggest cat lady I’ve ever known. I grew up with cats, my mom and I always had at least one in the house, and my boyfriend and I currently have 4- we had 5 until a few months ago when we had to put down my boyfriend’s 15 year old baby Joe :(. I thought this was a fitting post to put up as I’m currently sitting here worrying my head off about Lola, my little baby. Yesterday was her 20th birthday and she spent it in the hospital. She’s having kidney failure and the vets are doing everything they can to help her get back to normal. I know she’s old but she’s my literal child and I don’t know what I’d do without her so please send some good kitty vibes!
Anyway, as usual, I was freezing my tits off during this little photo session but you gotta suffer for fashion sometimes. I went to work right after this and spent the whole day there indoors, so it was fiiiiiiine. Until I had to walk home.
P.S, if you decide to make a circle skirt like this one, please don’t choose a muslin-y type cotton fabric. i spent FORTY FIVE MINUTES steaming it and it was still wrinkly as heck. This has been a PSA.
Shoes- Addition Elle (hella sold out because, like, it’s winter)
