    Friday Favourites

    I’m stuck inside on a Friday night because severe weather, good thing I have 900 candles on hand othat I should probably start lighting now just in case. Before the power or internet goes out, here’s a little reading material! Unpopular opinion – I never understood why people were so enamored with Steve Jobs like there wasn’t a whole team of brainy people backing him up. This article solidifies my less than glowing sentiments. I am sick and tired of hearing about climate change, I am tired of reading study after study about how it’s only getting worse. Someone needs to get serious about climate change, start taking away some…

    Another Friday, another evening of CSI Las Vegas – I am too deep in the series to tap out now. I really liked the Gil and Sara relationship even though we didn’t see a lot of it, I was devastated when they weren’t together anymore. Clearly, so was Sara seeing as how she ended up with a rando in hotel and the center of a murder investigation. Oops. I am not there yet, but I know that it’s coming. If your Friday is slated to be as exciting as mine, here’s a little reading material for you 😛 Going to Blockbuster was a huge deal when I was a kid…

    Wednesday Wisdom – Daria Edition

    After my post yesterday on all of the cool programming that MTV used to offer, I decided to watch a little Daria last night! I guess that most of these could not be described as ‘wisdom’ but more just commentary on life, enjoy a little teenage angst to get you through your mid-week! I hope that you are having a beautiful day, thanks for stopping by <3

    Another Friday, another hot weekend ahead. I have no idea what I am doing this weekend, probably anything that can be done inside. First on the agenda is to get through my new BOTM book whose author is mired in a bit of drama at the moment. Riley Sager wrote a decent first thriller with Final Girls and I am just about to start The Last Time I Lied that has the same cabin in the woods thriller vibe. Apparently, Riley is a pen name for Todd Ritter but I guess I never think of an author’s gender when it comes to fiction books. Call it bizarre, call it idiotic,…

    No Phone Challenge

    Sounds nuts, right? It probably is and this may or may not be the worst idea ever but I am going to go phone-free for the next week. Reason being is that it is just a huge distraction right now with people sending me messages, getting into time consuming text conversations, aimlessly scrolling because I am bored or sad, and overall just wasting time. I feel like I can’t unplug because of the constant notifications sucking me back in. I decided to Google some info to see if going cell-phone free was a viable option and read this encouraging article that convinced me to give it go. So, it’s off…

    Friday Favourites

    It’s Friday, thank goodness – if there is anything that I love about the 9-5, it is definitely weekends off. I also had more fun working retail so I guess that there are trade offs but I am ready for the weekend. Friday Favourites are going to be posts where I round up some articles, recipes and other tidbits from around the web that I found particularly enjoyable or thought-provoking, let’s get started! This article on the origin of high-heels didn’t surprise me because I grew up with a mom who wore cowboy boots as fancy dress and when you think about it, they were originally created for cowboys! I…

    Happy 4th of July if you are in the states, sadly, the fireworks have been cancelled in my city as we are in a severe thunderstorm warning. I cannot recall the last time that it rained on the 4th but it’s bound to happen some years. Here are a collection of quotes on freedom to celebrate: Enjoy the rest of your week – thanks for stopping by <3

    C’est La Vie – July To Do

    So, this was the first weekend that I was mostly on my own and it was different but not terrible…? I didn’t really have much to do, I just did stuff around the apartment but I have made a list of some things that I am looking forward to doing in the next coming weeks. Well, not an entire day but my hair is so overdue because I have been trying to get these highlights to grow out but finally scheduled a hair appointment. I figured that I might as well just get everything done the same day and get fresh polish and eyebrows as well. I have been contemplating…

    I have been on the hunt for the perfect athletic pant for ages, I used to wear some from North Face but they don’t make them anymore and the ones I have are so short I can’t wear them any longer. I don’t understand ‘athleisure’ clothing and that seems to be primarily what’s available unless I want just plain black clothing. I keep looking at Lululemon but holy smokes are they spendy – has anyone tried their clothing? I literally know nothing about the brand, I just have my eye on these running shoes: I have been looking for a soft running shoe and the shoes look great, they come…

    I leave for my lunch break today because I didn’t pack my lunch and was jonesing for a diet Coke which my skin will pay for later. I drive by the local McDonald’s and there are at least 30 cars stacked up, I figured that the McRib was back (gag) so I went to a gas station. Turns out, the internet was down for a portion of the city and they couldn’t take electronic payment. A rather obnoxious fellow was heckling the clerk and says, Of course I don’t have cash. Who carries cash? It’s the 21st Century! This guy hasn’t scene Terminator apparently but Doomsday Prepper Stella shines in…
