smells like holiday spirit

Today is the last day of November, and despite having one more essay and two exams to go before I break for the winter break (woah 2 breaks in there), I'm already feeling the holiday spirit. Although I'm not the biggest fan of winter once we hit mid-January, up until then I LOVE it. All the store window displays, lights, Christmas trees, snow, skating, holiday specials on TV (you know those cheesy cartoon ones that you still watch even though you're technically too old so you probably shouldn't watch them, but still do) etc. We've started decorating our house for Christmas also, but even though I can't truly enjoy everything till I'm done school, I'm finding my own ways of inflicting some holiday cheer into an otherwise depressing school schedule. I uncovered these tights during the summer, but haven't worn them till now. The pairing of these tights and dress screams Christmas for me. All I need is some green and I'm good to go.

Hope you're all having a wonderful week!

rushing

Hello all my lovely readers! This is a very quick post to say that tomorrow I will update with an outfit. I've had a hectic couple weeks, and the next three will also be quite challenging. Nonetheless, my posting will definitely increase over the next weeks. I took a look at my archives and noticed that last November I only had 3 posts (I think I've done better this year), but December was a much better month.
Anyways, here are a couple images that one of my friends took of me back in October(? I think).

Off to continue writing papers.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!




Ps. Almost 200 followers!!! So exciting!!!

baskervilles

We don't get foggy days often, but for the past two days I've woken up to find the world decked in a most gorgeous fog. Today the fog was even heavier than yesterday, and I just had to take photos.
This fog makes me think of Hound of the Baskervilles, my all time favourite Sherlock Holmes mystery. The moors decked in a deep fog...oh, how I wish I could go back to my days of playing detective.
Anyways, outfit inspiration came from Sherlock Holmes and the fog.

jump!

This is the last bunch of photos from October. I honestly can't believe we're halfway through November already. SCARY! Time flies much too fast when you're in school.
Last month I took the time to jump around in the leaves before going to my classes. Although my campus is still beautiful, it's rather sad that there are no more leaves on the trees apart for some rusty coloured ivy on the stone walls. Winter is coming much too fast!

Ps. So sorry I haven't commented back on anyone's blogs. I've got myself buried in readings, there are papers to be written, as well as those random events that pop up and I just can't say no to. December will be much better for blog updates.

Have a wonderful weekend! I'm off to go write 3 essays, and read about a million books. Oh joy!

poker face

This post comes rather late, but nonetheless, better late than never, right?
I didn't go anywhere for Halloween, but I felt that it was necessary to at least dress up to hand out candy. Since my decision was very last moment, I decided to be Lady Gaga, after all, a leotard, and some crazy make-up is all it takes...oh, and a fierce attitude.
I chose to do the poker face make-up but I took ideas from a bunch of her outfits to make my own.
Hope you all like it!

come take my hand, let's walk this road together

I think that olive green is one of my favourite colours, although my favourite colours tend to change with the seasons, or rather the shades change.
I bought this dress as a 19th birthday gift for myself over a month ago. These photos were taken over a week ago when the leaves were still falling from the trees, and it was warm enough to just wear a sweater outside. Now my good friend Jack Frost has arrived, although I do wish he had taken a bit longer coming to visit. He always tends to stay for way too long, so I would prefer for him to arrive late.
Nonetheless, it's rather nice to look back at these photos and remember the trees when they looked like this.
