Call Me Khaleesi

Did everyone survive that gal Sandy?! I kept waiting for something humongous to happen, but I felt it was pretty tame here in Oakville. (It’s pretty much the biggest weather bubble ever.) I remember having a tornado/”tornado” last summer and it seemed a lot worse: more windy and our power went out. But news coverage…

Throwback Thursday: Halloween Edition

Muah-ha-ha-ha-ha. (That was supposed to be a scary laugh, but I’m picturing more of a Count-from-Sesame-Street kind of thing.) A for effort? I know Halloween is next Wednesday, but I wanted to take this very special day in the interwebs (being Throwback Thursday) to showcase my amazing costumes through the years. Having a mom who can sew and a…

Intervention: Game of Thrones

Woohoo double post today, lucky you! As you can see, I am not dead from my cycling class: I actually really enjoyed it and will probably go again! So my friend just sent me a link to the Thought Catalog article, Game of Thrones Guys and Whether or Not You Should Marry Them. I laughed…

In Case of My Death…

Ah, I have always had the flair for dramatics: that’s what comes with being an Italian Leo born in the Year of the Snake. But seriously, I am about to go to my first spinning class in over two years and it is safe to say I am terrified: my memories of spinning classes I…

Guilty Pleasures: Rockstar Braid Inspired by Kim K

Good morning beauties! Today I’m going to talk guilty pleasures. We all have them: whether it be SmartFood chedda popcorn, trashy reality TV, or celebrity stalker blogs, you can’t deny your guilty pleasures. Embrace them! I’ll be the first to admit that my guilty pleasure is Miss Kimberly Kardashian (soon-to-be Mrs. West?) She’s just one…

The Journey Into Employment or How I’m Becoming a Big Girl

…Is it possible to get a job that requires you to just simply search for jobs? If there is…I would get it for sure! I even taught Jamie how to search efficiently and effectively for a new job…pooping and sleeping just ain’t cutting it for my prissy puppy: And another strange situation that happened today:…

Low-Carb Chocolate Chip Banana Flax Muffins

Mmmmmm muffins. They come in so many different mouth-watering flavours: chocolate chip, blueberry, and those pumpkin spice ones from Starbucks with the cream cheese filling in the middle — drool. But, like every other scrumptious food out there, they are not friendly to the hips and thighs area (at least, that’s how it is for…

Lana Del Rey x Notorious B.I.G. – Born Ready to Die

Mmmmmuzik: Lana Del Rey x Notorious B.I.G. – Born Ready to Die So I haven’t posted much about music on my blog so far, which is strange since music is a huge part of my life. I had been going through a musical drought, where my iPod was craving new music but I hadn’t found…

Oktoberfest: Embracing My Other Half

Hey hey hey! I can’t believe it’s Thursday…again! Time really flies when you’re in between jobs. (I’m thinking about telling people I’m on a sabbatical, just because it sounds fancy and professional…but I think those are reserved for people in academia. Perhaps I’ll try once and let you all know how it goes.) So tomorrow…

Confessions of a Shoeaholic

Good morning! Does anyone remember this video? It was one of the first YouTube videos to go viral back in 2006 and it was classic! (It also completely describes my internal thoughts when I go shopping and see shoes — minus the creepy stalker tendencies and terrible Valley Girl voice.) So the point of this…

Triple-P Shake

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my Canadian followers! I’ll have you know that I gained two pounds from my Thanksgiving yesterday. But in my defense, I had two thanksgiving dinners…and I have another today! It’s not my fault that I love squash, potatoes, turkey and sweets! So in honour of my glorious weight gain, I have…

Short & Sweet

No, I’m not about to talk about me…but I could (a la Toby Keith.) Well now that you’ve had enough country music for a month, let’s talk movies. So I’m a huge movie buff and have seen tons of movies ranging from classics to superhero flicks to horror movies and the cheesiest chick flicks ever….
