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, 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)'!
