Dear Loyal Readers,

I have unfortunately experienced a fatal computer crash last week so I will be uncapable of being bloggy until further notice. I am blogging from my work computer now (during my break of course) but I can't full-on download pics etc and let's face it, a blog without pictures is just not a blog. It's upsetting because I had so many exciting bloggable things going on! My lovely boyfriend made a delicious squash soup, I did a little summer shopping, ate some ice cream, tried new restaurants, am launching a new website and tomorrow Mama's finally gettin' her some new Gucci glasses! I will TRY to catch up upon return. Please feel free to leave me any suggestions you might have for my big comeback! 

A bientot!

American Friggin' Idol

Yes I was obviously upset that Haley did not win good ol' American Idol. She was charming and different and we hadn't heard a voice like that in a LONG time. And she was provacative. And I like that. I swore to myself I wouldn't watch the finale as a sign of protest. Then last night as I was watching the finale, I saw how genuinely happy Scotty looked. He seemed truely humbled by the title and yes, it touched me. I love that he thanked everyone (except Jack Black) instead of centering on himself and singing as loud and as well as he could the finale song. I still hope to see Haley around (my house), but I can honestly say that I am happy for the young lad. There. Maturity.

I was shocked when I saw this as a featured product on The View this morning.


It did make me want to eat s'mores though.
So I am going to attempt to make s'more cupcakes for an upcoming birthday celebration I have.

Hopefully they will look as delish as this! (I will post them as soon as I get them done and you all can be the judges.)

I Love a Cheap Shoe!

It made my day when I found these amazing little spring heels that are 1. super pin-up-y and 2. cost 30 doollaz! I WILL wear them with dark black tights when the weather is warmer. And they WILL hurt my feet because that's the the thing about a cheap shoe. Still, I love them.

Size Matters

I'm loving an oversized mirror nowadays, especially in a smaller space. It makes a room look so much bigger, it's le crazy! I may or may not have taken this notion to the extreme though, putting an 8 foot tall miror in my studio apartment that's as big as most women's closets. I had been dying for one though so when my wonderfully weird and crafty mother decided to destroy her walk-in closet to put a bath in her bedroom (pause for reaction), she took one of her mirror doors, added some crown moulding and ta-da! (If you try this at home, make sure you glue your sheet of miror to a peice of plywood first as they are very thin and bendy (if you know what I mean)).

Saturday Night Dino Fever!

So this past weekend I got in full party planner mode and planned my sister a dinosaur themed 25th birthday surprise party. We decked her apartment out jungle-style, dressed up as dinos, made dino-shaped food, put dino-shaped ice in our drinks and got confused between dragons and actual dinosaurs.

Beautiful cupcakes made by Ali!

Yes they sell this.

We were all floored when our friend Ashley who 'decorates cakes as a hobby' offered to make one and it turned out like this!

     Birthday girl.

Everyone was so friggin helpful it turned out amazing! *pride*

Things I am obsessed with right now:

1. Finding a sexy, refreshing and fun song for un upcoming audition.

2. The thought of summer and one day wearing sandals and bearing my fluo white shoulders.

3. American Idol (as per usual) and it's upcoming finale! (Haley, Haley, Haley!)

PS. Alot (3) of you have told me you can't seem to leave your lovely comments on my blog! I (my boyfriend) will get right on it! Hopefully this will be fixed asap and you can all express yourselves freely soon.

long time no blog!

Hi everyone! I haven't been very bloggy lately. 'Bad Bloggy!' *smacks her own hand* I've been pretty busy 1. being a 'successful' travel agent and 2. being sad about missing out on a huge family event. (First I'd like to congratulate my very favourite cousin on her beautiful wedding!) I remember several years ago, before she was even engaged, when she asked me to be a bridesmaid in a public bathroom on a family trip. I cried and accepted. I remember realising and announcing to her that I would not be able to make it because of work. I helped plan the bridal shower and the bachelorette and kept my spirits high! I was in full-on bridemaidzilla mode and loving it. Then on Tuesday everyone came back, tanned, with pictures, and their eyes filled with romance and memories. *sighhhhhhhhhhh* And I had a thought; you can’t know if you’re going to regret something until you actually do it.

(Then I shopped away my worries and noticed after that everything I bought had a sort of Latino flair. Coincidence? I think not.)

Cute shorts and the story of nest

Once upon a time, back when we had to go all the way to the friggin USA to shop at Forever 21, my gorgeous cousin and I took a little trip to the city that never sleeps, and waited in line a few hours to try on our future purchases. We quickly noticed the salesperson was saying the word ‘nest’ (a pocketlike, usually more or less circular structure of twigs, grass, mud, etc., formed by a bird, often high in a tree, as a place in which to lay and incubate its eggs and rear its young; any protected place used by a bird for these purposes (according to dictionary.com)), instead of ‘next’ (immediately following in time, order, importance, etc.(again according to dictionary .com)) to call over the next shopper. This was funny to us, so thus we began to replace every ‘next’ by a ‘nest’. America’s Nest Top Model, Degrassi the Nest Generation, ‘See you nest week!’, and the list goes on and on. I invite you all to try it! And also to check out these adorable little floral shorts from Forever 21 (aka where it all began)! Plus they cost nest to nothing!


So long! Until nest time! 

As I am so very open to criticism...

I have changed my font to something more reader-friendly. Enjoy! And keep the feedback coming my loyal readers (ie. close family and friends)!

Things I am obsessed with right now (besides Jessica Simpson):

Gourmet burgers, homemade fries, milkshakes (oh my!) and a super friendly man at the counter at Burger de Ville on Saint Laurent. Better than any burger I have ever had.

Wajdi Mouawad shaking sh*t up with his provoking choice of play and cast being featured at the (overpriced but rarely disappointing) TNM in may 2012.

Adele. Enough said.

Hockey games! For the food, the beer, the pride and the general atmosphere in Montreal.

As a former contestant on the most competitive and important televised singing competition in the world (Star Académie), I have become obsessed with the less important ones (American Idol). And I have to say that if Hayley goes home this week I will be so upset. What a talented and charismatic little woman!
Ps. My lovely boyfriend read this, looked at me with disgust and said, “That’s the kind of stuff you’re gonna be writing about on your blog?” So I said, “Don’t worry babe, next week I’m writing about monster trucks.”

Willkommen, bienvenue, welcome!

"Blogs are completely useless and a little pretentious" were my exact words just a few weeks ago (if not less). So here I am! *proud face* Was I convinced of the contrary or is this a simple experiment? That we'll never know. But do join me! as I share with you in an un-censored and humoristic way the adventures and misadventures of the dool (days of our lives).
Look out for segments such as : 'Things I learned as a "travel agent" today' and 'Things I am obsessed with (besides Jessica Simpson)'!
