Munching on Free Menchies in Red

I have probably talked about Menchies way too much here but... grand opening near Markham! (aka free menchies, photos (which they develop and put on a magnet for you), balloon and t-shirt colouring!
This absolutely made my day, you just can't stop smiling at a walking menchies cone!

Jacob skirt, Armani button up, Mexx necklace, new Lindsay Phillips short wedges!

Graduate in three months!?

 @Marlow with the coolest people!
Lucy is wearing a maxi length Guess Dress and I'm wearing a Denise dress
I'm still having a crisis with what to do with myself after I'm done my fashion design program at George Brown, I actually applied for the business/ management program today at GBC... as it would overlap with the one I'm finishing so I can get my second diploma in less than a year.

I had my heart set on FIT in NYC but for some reason I don't want to commit to school for another two years. All I want to do is set up a studio and create for a year. What to do what to do!
It's so scary when there are endless options but each choice I make is going to determine my path into the "real" life! 

In the midst of trying to make a life changing decision, I've been hanging out in Laurier, sketching my bf's room, headed to London, Ontario(road trip!) for a photo shoot of some of my dresses for the Caisa Fashion Show (The show will be March 31st, 2012 at Western University! ) and then occasionally I chill at the Snack Bar at Nathan Philip Square serving Hot Chocolate.

Then at night I like to bar hop on Bloor street (very seldom, actually) ended up at Insomnia (chic bar with $5.5 martinis on Thursdays!), Yo Yo Yogurt (I can never get enough of my frozen yogurt despite below zero weather!), while wearing my fuzzy mitt from Jacob. Latest project I'm working on are five bride maid dresses for a client! Super excited!

P.s. I've been feeling like I'm not giving back to the community (compared to the grade nine girl I was, eager to volunteer anywhere and everywhere), I'm not quite sure where to start in the heart of Toronto, anyone have any tips? I definitely feel especially obligated to give back after watching In Time. We keep complaining about  the small things in life when truly, we are the fortunate and blessed ones compared to the hundreds of thousands out there who don't have family, shelter and/ or food.

Hello School

School has started once again. & I finally took a deep breath and handed my resignation letter, it was a love hate experience in retail but I want to concentrate on my future (aka I'm applying for F.A.T.! and a part of CASIA fashion show) and my passion (which, as you know, my designing has been slowwing down dramatically due to lack of time).

I just noticed I don't do outfit blogs anymore... That might be due to a) messiness around my condo b) too little time (to dress up/ take photos) c) always in ugly b & w work attire.    BUT I will try harder to!

and I'll sign off with a super cute video... 
I can't believe I'm saying it but.. now I like coca cola.
