mon premier cardigan



(okay now seeing it, i know i have to hem the bows before it unravels more! haha)

this is the First Cardigan I ever sewed!
I'm really happy by the way it came out; it's a lot more "lingerie" style than I anticipated, but I still think it'll work with blue jeans and white tank.

Working with wooly yarn wasn't as scary as I thought, what do you think of this piece?

ici et là

dresses I made recently and photoshoot with Joel Bourgoin at Harbour Front Downtown.









I watched "my sister's Keeper" last night. I borrowed it from the local library and heard it's amazing. It's so sad obviously but somehow it seems right, I was kind happy at the end when she died because she was ready and she accepted it, and that it was a miracle for her to live that long in the first place plus she had such a good life and finally her mom can let go. It's not quite ... happy but more... peaceful? But I liked it a lot, surprisingly I cried the most in the beginning of the movie. I CAN NOT imagine a burden like that in my family. We should really be grateful for our health and our friend's and family's health every single day, it's something we always take for granted.

Ironically I have the flu. Haha.. bf gave it to me.

anyway, check out my ETSY shop!

Cuba or Dominican Republic?

This is a dress I made with chiffon, silk and some embroidery and lace! More photos coming from the photoshoot :) stay tuned!
so I went to promenade to spend my discount card at Mexx.
I came across these DARLING 5 inch clogs @ Town Shoes.
I HAD to Own them :)
my little shopping spree
I'm really loving the purse, it can used by the handles or a long strap, it's actually quite big so I can put books and binder or even my dog inside!
making sushi with bf. yum!

So I am planning on going on away with my mom, and we're teared between Dominican Republic and Cuba. Which one do you think is a better October/November get away?? Please help me out! Give me you opinion :)

I watched Wall Street yesterday, loving it, I heard it was based on an original and I'm dying to check out Wall Street 1. I wonder if it's similar... but Shia Labeouf is amazing along with Carey Mulligan. It always stuns me to see Shia looking so OLD, I mean not old but looking like a man. I remember always watching him on Even Steven looking like a teenager! Time is scary!
Oh might I add, taking Finance class in grade12 FINALLY came in handy, I actually understood all the Finance/ stock talk 8)!

On other news, I just joined Chictopia! Check it out on the right hand side.
