Life of a Student

Here I am once again with my procrastinating self up. It feels like it's very late, but it's clearly not...it's only 11:24pm. I'm so sleep deprived that I can't even function properly. Regardless, I must stay up and work tonight. I have a ten paged paper due for tomorrow, and my progress so far? I've written approximately almost two pages. That's only 20%!

So I'm going to camp out here in the library until I have finished five pages, or it's time for the library to close, which is at 2:45am.

I'm half dead, working on this.

I am so tired, and not literally just walked out in yoga pants, a tee, and uggs. I don't care, I'm in desperate need to finish and sleep.

Wish me luck,

So I wake up this morning and think darn. It's already 10 am. I look at my phone to check some messages, and behold! It's not 10am, it's only 9 am! Oh how I love Canada and their need to fall back an hour in the cold seasons. An extra hour can do so much!

Talking about the cold,

how annoying is it that so many times that I try to buy ankle boots in the store, and they have an open toe? I mean it's getting to about 4 degrees here everyday, and you expect me to wear shoes that aren't going to cover my toes? Don't get me wrong, I love open toed shoes, they're my absolute faves! However, when it's going to get close to freezing point, I'd rather not have my poor toes not be covered. It's sad because so many beautiful shoe options are open toed. Great trend, but I'd much rather have seen more of this in the S/S collections, rather than the ones for F/W.

Another thing about trends on boots.

Rainboots. The question here is why do most of them have obnoxious prints or crazy colours? (of course there are the exceptions, but that's why I said most) I mean having rubber boots doesn't mean the need for ridiculous pictures on them are required. I'm still looking for nice rainboots (not feeling the hunters or michael kors or burberry... too many people have them) and so, my search continues..

China Fashion Week

Personally, I've never really looked at China as being one of the places to have fantastic fashion weeks. I guess I've always it in my mind that it would be very asian-inspired collections, and to be honest, since I was little, I haven't been a big fan of the asian-themed textiles.

However, after taking a glimpse of what they have to offer this week, I must say, I am baffled. Not only is it tres avant garde, but also very creative and over the top.

It's so risque. And fresh. It's so unexpected!
Sooner or later, China will be one of the 'it' fashion spots. When you think fashion now, I think of New York, Milan, Paris and London. Sooner or later, Beijing will be in that list too.
Let's give it another five years.


I know it's already been a couple days, but it's still worthy to talk about.
Halloween! One of my most favourite occasions of the year!

You see, I love dressing up. Period. Dress up to go out, dress up to go to a formal, but especially dressing up to be someone (or something) else.

This year, with Halloween falling on a SUNDAY, I had 3 days to dress up! Was I ever excited!

And here's the breakdown:

Friday: That's right! I was Snooki! I actually bronzed myself up! I got a darker foundation and spread it all over my upper body and my face. How tanned am I? Like my hair? Bump-its are the best! But I don't think I'll be doing more poufs or have my boobs spill out like they do here anytime soon... however! I will still keep my fists pumping.

Saturday: Arrrggg, me name is a pirate. Nothing too special. I wore fishnets for the first time. They are rather awkward when you rub your legs against each other. It's such a funny feeling since they're mostly holes in your tights. And after I put them into the wash, it's like so weird looking. Oh wells, fishnets, really, are for Halloween... otherwise, it's hooker-wear.

Sunday: so if you can't tell already, I don't take pictures. Or I hardly ever take pictures. Anyways, you can't see it very well, but I was a vampiress. Pretty scary to say the least. Made my top... didn't work out so well. Lesson learned: never make anything without giving a good amounts of time to try on and make sure it fits. My corset was way too big on me. Half the time, I was dancing with it half on me. It's ok, like any club, people were probably too drunk to notice anyways.

Hope everyone else had fun with Halloweekened too!

Delightful Surprise

I had no idea that this was what to expect for Kanye's Runaway Film. How breathtaking is this? The cinematography was done so well.

On another note, the phoenix! If my Halloween costume were that, it would have been beyond amazing. And the way she moved like a phoenix, it was definitely not like any 'bird' I've seen. She looked so great. Her makeup, hair and overly exaggerated nails was such a good hybrid of human-bird.

To be honest, I still think Kanye's a pompousy douche, however, I'll admit that he's really good at what he does. The music is actually not bad, and the whole idea is so good. I would have never imagined him to be so artistically inclined.

I especially enjoyed the different symbols and images he used to represent various parts of his life and history too (can you see them?)

I know I'm late on this, I mean, it came out last week, if not the week before; regardless, I still think it's still blog-worthy.
