Top Tunes from 2012

The end of 2012 is always about lists, lists, lists. The only kind of list I’m going to share with you is my Top Tunes list from 2012. I discovered some seriously sweet music this year and I’m nice, so I’ll share it with you. (Lucky you, I’m normally a total music snob.) Knock You…

2012: Whatta Year

  Well, last year I rang in 2012 with an all-you-can-eat sushi dinner with my little sister, Victoria and a night of heckling Electric Circus participants. (I’m not a huge NYE person, if you can’t tell.) This year, I’m hitting up City Nightclub with my high school BFF/Olsen twin/fellow dwarf/fairy and we are going to…

The Scoop: My Christmas Haul

I hope everyone had a warm and snuggly Christmas surrounded by family, friends, chocolate, and/or mass amounts of carbs! I received some pretty amazing things for Christmas this year, which I am very excited to share with you guys. iPhone 4S: Merry Christmas to me! Every year I buy one or two (sometimes three) presents…

The Way to a Man’s (or Bacon-Lover’s) Heart

The way is via Maple Bacon Cupcakes with Bacon Buttercream and Candied Bacon Garnish.   I had this urge to be adventurous and try these out — and let’s be serious here; I had a craving for bacon. This was probably the most complex and hardest recipe that I have ever attempted.  I made everything from…

Throwback Thursday: Christmas Edition

Happy Throwback Thursday! I did one of these posts for Halloween, where I shared all of my best and favourite Halloween costumes. I was requested to make ‘moar retroactive’ posts by none other than DoomzTO. So what better time to do another retroactive look than Christmas! I could show you all of my cute —…

Book Bitchin’: War & Peace

Alright, this is serious. Reading a book for pleasure should always be a pleasant, stress-free experience. I’m reading War & Peace right now and it’s taken me forever. It’s not that bad of a book: I can see how it’s a classic and all, because IT’S IMPOSSIBLE TO READ. Reasons it has taken me almost a month…

Berries vs. Apples vs. …Droids?

Yes, I am now one of the Blackberry refugees contemplating the switch to either an Apple iPhone 4s or an Android. I’ve never been one to follow technology trends. I’m aware of new gadgets and covet them — like I would look absolutely fabulous with an iPad on my commute. But I’m not one to…

Super Garlicky Potato Soup

Last week I had this insatiable craving for potato soup, but I didn’t exactly know where one bought potato soup. I knew my old faithful, Sky Blue Sky Sandwich Company would probably have it, but that’s all the way in the Annex…likely worth it, but by the time I found out that they did have potato…

My Apocalypse Playlist

Happy Last 8.5 Days of Life on Earth! To commemorate this last week of life on Earth, I have compiled a list of songs about the end of the world. (Disclaimer: These are my choice of songs from my beautiful mind…no copykitty here.) Enjoy! (I am being highly sarcastic — perhaps facetious for the “believers” —…

Butter, Sugar & Chocolate…Oh My!

Pre-holiday Winter: that period between Remembrance Day (or the beginning of December if you’re a tight-butt no-fun person), that is filled with Christmas music in department stores, mass amounts of chocolate and other holiday treats, and the biggest VISA bill your bank account will hate you for. Every year, I meet up with my old…

Bookworm Challenge – UPDATE!

  Here’s an update on the bookworm challenge I started approximately a month ago. I’ve been quite busy with work and after-work activities. Plus, classics take a longer time to read than non-classics. I’ve now read Jane Eyre, The Colour Purple, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and am currently reading War and Peace. 1 Pride and…

How To Cure A Hangover

If you’re nauseous and not hungry, DON’T eat. If you’re nauseous and not hungry, DON’T drink carbonated drinks — this includes ginger ale. Sleep as much as you can. If this doesn’t cure nausea, lie on your bathroom floor — best if you have tiles — and snuggle with the toilet until that pizza you…
