You have to admit….there is something mesmerizing about this song. Two seconds in and I knew it was a keeper. I’ve been totally hooked for like the last month. No matter what else I listen to, I always return back to this tune.

Snow Day

I had the chillest day ever. So much peace and quiet with everyone home on account of the snow. I basically caught up on a ton of work and then spent the rest of the day planning my social calendar for the next month. February is surprisingly festive what with Valentine’s day, Family day, my close friends’ birthday, and my best friends’ homecoming all crammed into this too-short-of-a month. Plus, I really want to “esc-it” again. There are only so many weekends in February to account for.

I’m super excited about my V-day long weekend though! Valentine’s day also falls on a casual Friday, which means more options for a super cute outfit. If the whether permits, I hope I can wear a dress I’ve been saving for just this occasion. Plus I dunno what the plans are gonna be yet. I want to either go to the Octagon, Jacobs or this Taiwanese place that’s been highly recommended to me. If I’m lucky I’ll get to hit up one Friday and the other on Saturday, because I’m totally spoiled, and save the third option for a later day. Then it’s party on Sunday and resting on Monday for Family day. Nothing helps you get through the week better than looking forward to a really kick ass weekend. :)

Okay these pants are the comfiest pants ever! I got them in black for 16.80. Let that sink in. SO worth the money. In fact, they were so awesome I had to buy two more pairs, in the above grey and another in navy. I ALMOST got the red too, but I didn’t want to go overboard. I would have bought another black pair but I think it’s sold out. I will live in these forever. So flattering, so cute, and so affordable. My favourite combination.

My song obsession right now.

Another Bad Habit

Ugh, I cannot start blogging in the middle of the night every day! It’s such a bad habit. Even worse is online shopping in the middle of the night every day lol. But I feel myself waking up at this time now. I’m going to be a zombie tomorrow morning. Sighs. How many bad habits am I going to keep picking up?! I’m surprised I can still function, as I have so many.

I also only lasted a month into my buying freeze and went crazy shopping again. I got my Spring shoes today, I’ll get my huge Forever 21 haul tomorrow and I placed two other orders on Dynamite and Garage today. Somebody stop me! But at least I have the income now and to be fair I still mostly shop the sales and get crazy awesome deals with cash back. I guess that’s one good habit I haven’t dropped, no matter the $$ I make. Only problem…no closet space! My room is quickly becoming less of a room and more of a walk-in closet. Tis my life. 

Okay. So my favourites?

Totally love this sweater from Garage. I seriously could not resist. And I tried. I really tried to resist but it was not happenin.

Ok, how freaking gorgeous is this look?? I totally love it. Immediately ‘shopping cart-ed’ the entire outfit on the spot. lol. That asymmetrical skirt alone! Speaking of asymmetrical…

Oh forever 21, how you never fail me. This skirt was practically leaping into my virtual arms. The “origami” skirt…my new love.

Esc-It

I got my first taste of Esc-It on Sunday. It was….the greatest. thing. ever! I was going in being very skeptical and to be honest even a little dour because I didn’t think it would be worth any money. It probably isn’t, but I loved it so much I don’t even care. I was made for games like Esc-It! I did the bedroom challenge, which I think was the easiest, where you’re basically locked in a room for 45 minutes with your friends and you have to solve a series of clues to “escape”. Make it out in 45 minutes and you’re on the wall of fame, either fail to escape or don’t solve all the clues in the time limit and you’re on the wall of shame. It’s seriously so much more fun then I ever thought. I want to go back and try the other 3 rooms. I am officially hooked. 

Spoilers for the bedroom challenge below.

Haunted House

I am such a wimp. I have the worst aversion to all things scary or even any semblance to things scary. Case in point, I stayed up all night reading Vampire Academy and though not outright scary it has its moments. I mean the tone can be freaky at times, it’s no romantic comedy of a novel, anyways the point is I was on edge enough to be spooked. And I mean spooked! By everything. I seriously should not have been reading it in my room in the middle of the night where I literally saw dark shadows, heard creepy drips and creaks, and freaked myself out every 10 minutes. I remember at one point seeing the outline of my tall lamp situated over the head of my bed and thinking it was a person looming over me and had a mini-heart attack. Honestly… imagine I was actually reading some horror novel. I’d have grey hairs right now. I probably wouldn’t have made it through the night. The thing is I was fully aware I was just spooking myself out irrationally which totally reminded me of New Years Eve….

Vampire Academy

Ugh, I know you are not suppose to judge a book by its cover but lets face it, EVERYBODY DOES IT! I mean maybe not with all books, especially recommended books or books you know have really awesome ratings, but for the most part if you’re at a bookstore —it happens! Which is basically what turned me off from this series (among other things) but THEN I saw the trailer to this series and I was all O.O “must.read.book.” because I knew I was going to watch the movie and I prefer to read the book before the movie since the books are 9 out of 10 times better than their film counterparts… *sucks in huge breath* Anyways, read it. Loved it. Sooo glad the planets aligned and I can read this entire series like I haven’t missed a beat. Now on to the best book moments/my really dumb (and at times creepy) comments as I read.

“Obviously, Julie, you don’t like the way I do things, and you don’t like me the way I am. Fine. I could care less. But stop trying to change me. You don’t get to pick which parts of me you find acceptable to your standards and throw away what you don’t. I’ll never be what you want. You don’t like me? Then stay out of my life.” - Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park.
