these are a few of my favourite things (right now)

This post if full of things that add glitter to my life. Thought I’d share with ya. Bangs from Doll Bar, Olympus PEN, vintage hats.

I’ve been trying a new routine of going to bed earlier and waking up earlier. Once you get outta bed, you can really accomplish heaps before the day really started. That’s my September goal: do more before 10am than most people do in a whole day.

My October goal is: go to England or New Zealand. Settin’ em high. YES WE CAN.

Sprocket Rocket camera from Lomography. I’ve got heaps of film because, frankly, I’m not that good at using the camera so I need to take heaps of shots before I can be considered good. Analogue is haaaarrrrrrd.

New duvet cover is the alphabet, say hello to my ALPHA bed. See what I did there? Oh yeah, creative play on words. New flowery pillow looks painted and that eye mask is from Keri. I sleep with an eye mask pretty much every night. I live in a glass box, it’s SO SUPER sunny in the AM! Although, getting to sleep is never a problem thanks to my new memory foam mattress. According to bestmattress-reviews, there are a number of quality options at a lower price than you’d think.

Gadget love: iPad (Andy), Macbook Air (James Dean), Android (Motorola DEFY), Logitech wireless mouse. I spend most the day with these guys.

Ok, here’s something really amazing….you won’t BELIVE how tall I am with these legendary things strapped on. Aren’t they beautiful?

They’re Jeffrey Campbell and I ordered them online at Solestruck. They’re like stilts. Move over Buskerfest. Comfy and good for walking. Film Fest, I am ready for you with my giant shoes.

I’ve been using Mereadesso cleanser w/ face & neck toning gel and I’m really loving it. Feel like I’m looking youngish. Got asked for ID more than twice last week so it must be working. Hellooooo, I’ll be 30 next year!

The Redken is a treatment from Darren Kwik Studio so my hair stays lovely. Louis Vuitton Brands send me Fendi perfume. It’s nice. Dior lipstick is a deep shade of red, perfect for Fall. Love that Body Shop butter, smells so good and makes your skin mega soft.

Scarf is from Forever 21. I went there for the first time this past weekend.

New leather jacket from Holts is dying for September weather. Skull Candy headphones from Shannon, awesome for concentrating. Bright thing is a head wrap from Bicyclette Boutique on Queen Street. Hamilton Watch, only one of that model in Canada. Flower headband from H&M.

Obsession with Docs & Converse is getting a little out of control. How many shoes is too many? I’ll be Carrie Bradshaw one day (except way more flats). Have a gift certificate for a new pair of Docs. Remember the Docs Fall Preview? SO many nice ones. Might go for the dressy style.

I’m heading on a mission to go get my bike. She’s been at KOOL HAUS since Saturday and I REALLLLLLY hope she’s still chilling there. Have an awesome day!! Oh, and BTW, Summer is not over so make sure you catch some rays out there.

    Lovelovelove Jeffrey Campbell shoes. No place to get them in Ottawa
    though, and I’m totally afraid of getting hit by customs fees when
    ordering online. Did you have to pay customs when ordering from
