So this blog is about fashion, music... and everything in between.
Just bought: This fantastic uber-gorgeous Dolce and Gabbana watch at Holt Renfrew. It's male and leather(just like I like it...). I love the juxtaposition of the light brown straps and the gold hardware on the dial. The red 'second' markings are to die for. I have only taken this watch off to bathe...
Price tag: $480
On my radar: Audemar Piguet Millenary Limited Edition watch. Ok so maybe this is not in my price range... and I'm certain I'd use the money for a few other things if it were... but honestly, when I eventually DO own this watch, I will NEVER be late for anything. EVER.
Price tag: $298,100
Searching for: Humongous granny underwear. lol. So my mom(like most others) does not understand the thong phenomenom. She bought me a pair of huge pink grannies some time ago(my first pair...since childhood at least)... and oh my gosh they are AMAZING... hehe. Such comfort... and appeal... they are so sexy I almost can't stand em. Only wear them at home... but on those days I am in heaven.
Feel free to suggest places I can find cute grannies... the bigger the better...lol...
Listening to: Soko. She's this really funny, supercute and introspective almost simple french artiste... her voice is speaky-singy... and so delightful. I am still in love with her hilarious song 'I'll kill her'... I find myself attracted to slightly obscure songs and musicians... I have also been listening to a lot of Betty Wright... she's this fantastic black singer from the 60's,70's... you might know her hits 'Tonight is the night', 'Clean up woman'(heard it first on one of those madea plays), 'After the pain'... the voice, the material... superb. I must add my music idol Sir Oliver de Coque... he made music for the wise.
Want more: Club Monaco cashmere sweaters. They are the most comfortable sweaters I own bar none. Oh and if you're in Canada... they give 20% discounts(on EVERYTHING) to college/university students(with ID)... so go get your buy on... and don't say I never gave you nothing...
Eating: My current obsession... ackee and saltfish... The first time I had this was on a horrendous pseudo-date with this idiotic Jamaican dude whom, after mistakenly admitting to me he had a baby on the way on our first date, had the nerve to try to kiss me... bleech... It's been 3 or more years since... you wouldnt believe he still tries to contact me... I'm talking as recently as a month ago.
Chocolate covered strawberries from Godiva and chocolate covered apples from Laura Secord... I call these 'gladly-grow-fat'... sooo amazing!!!
I'm in the market for a large leather hobo bag... I need something roomy enough to carry my overstuffed wallet, ipod, jumble of keys, agenda, pens, lipglosses, cellphone(s)-havent gotten around to transferring numbers from the old one- and every other little blah.
I figure that since I would be carrying this bag on a daily basis... it would make sense to get a colour I could wear everyday and not have to worry... and probably sink a bit of money into it (though not too much... I am a student afterall... and have to save some money to buy the 8th edition of the chemistry textbook I already have...)
Cash: THE diesel handbag... I don't have an actual picture... cos the exact one is not on their website... but it's this fantastically ugly shade of puke-green... lol... it really is disgustingly cute... I think nobody in my life might like it but me... but that's all that matters yes? I just wonder if I'll tire of it in a short while...
- Price: $345
Credit: A heavily discounted balenciaga city bag at Holts... it's so roomy and would carry a lot of textbooks... the only problem is... it's the flowery bag... pink and green and very girly/cutesy... I'm not sure if I can live with that on a day to day basis.
- Price: My friends read my blog... and think I spend too much on too little... so I'd rather not say... but lets just say more expensive than the diesel...
Next buy: A digital camera. Lost the old one. I have to get a new one soon as I plan to go away for reading week(AMEN)... so I want to space my purchases out... speaking of going away(the implied thought is of bikinis and beaches)... the belly is looking quite nice.
I am a huge fan of bracelets and cocktail rings. Live in em. I am currently searching for gold jewellry. I am still trying to figure out the difference between real gold jewellry and the gold-plated stuff. Having said that, I have my eyes on this really delicate gold bracelet at magi... its hammered gold... and so beautiful... will be wearing it with the new watch...
Weird reactions to a purchase: I recently bought a pair of liquid leggings... and reactions have ranged from people just rubbing the leggings and giving me the 'ohhh' eye... to a friend actually pouring water on the leggings to see if it'd run off(I kid you NOT)... I usually abhor leggings... but these ones are so fab... I've worn them 2 days in a row(lol to different places of course...)
