Christmas Eve!

Hallo darlings!

Every year, my parents and I go downtown Toronto to eat at Marché (previously named Richtree). This year was a bit different because I was working on Christmas Eve.  My boss was nice enough to let me off early because she knew something was different about me! I normally wear very minimal makeup at work so when I actually made the effort to look nice, everybody noticed hahaha :D

We took the subway to King station (one stop from Union.)


Music Favourites 1

By the time this post goes up, I'll be working a 2:30-10:30 shift. Now that I'm done classes, I have to work to save up for my exchange next year. So no break for me :(

Anyway, I want to share some of my favourite songs as of recently!

- breezeblocks by alt-j
- virus by m4sonic
- electric feel by mgmt
- every note pt 2 by mystery skulls
- pop danthology


So, you want to start cosplaying!

Hello everyone! This is actually a really outdated post, hence the old water marks. I wrote this last year but forgot about this post in my drafts, so I figured I may as well publish it!

I'd like to start this new blog series! I tend to get quite a few emails asking me about my cosplays or advice on how to start cosplaying, which is quite flattering because I never really expected people to ask me about it! But since this is also a cosplay blog, I figured I'd try to do more cosplay related posts!

Here are just some examples of the cosplays that I've done in the past. As you can see, I'm not a professional cosplayer or anything. I just love doing it. I love working on projects and getting to play dressup... in an extreme way. I've found that cosplay has helped me become more confident (I used to be really shy around people, and sometimes still am,) and it's helped me make lots of really good friends! (Some of my best friends are people I've met through cosplay!)


Christmas Wishlist 2012

It's almost time for Christmas! I know I've been eyeing a few things within the past week.
I've been doing some of my Christmas shopping for friends and family, which doesn't really leave much left over for myself haha.... But it's always nice to wish for things, right?

Here is my wishlist for this year.

Christmas Shopping @ Eatons

Yesterday, I met up with Sami to do our annual Christmas shopping trip at Eatons Centre! We've been doing it for the past two years. We usually do it before DTAC, but since we're not going to that any more + exams, we decided to do it a bit earlier on in the month.

First we stopped off at the food court to get some food! Eatons has really renovated their food court area, so it looks super modern now. They have a lot of healthy options for food, which is great. We decided to eat at a Chinese place. 
 The serving was huge! It was good though, although it was quite salty. When I was ordering it, the lady asked if I wanted spice and I said no... but it was spicy anyway... v__v /sigh
 Eatons had some really pretty Christmas decorations up! Throughout the mall, they put up giant reindeer!

It's nice being able to go out and do girly things once it a while, since I feel like I'm trapped at university. (The city that my university is in is really boring, and there really isn't much to do.) I also hardly ever get to see Sami since we live pretty far apart during the school year. 
I did most of my Christmas shopping at Crabtree & Evelyn, and H&M. Bought myself some cool holographic print shoes, I'll show those in my next post. I'm actually shit broke now though, won't have any money until I start working again during the Christmas break... wehhhhh

 It was also a nice destresser before exams start! First one is this Friday, wish me luck! :(

Oh, I'm also doing Vlogmas! Here's my most recent video!
