I've just had two cups of coffee, and after one I get a little weird. I'm not going to get into the details of our trip, but here's an outfit from the past week!

It was my friend Aylssa's 22nd birthday on Sunday so we went out for nachos and sangria at Foundation! Emily and I decided to dress to the 9's, but I'm having a problem putting outfits together so I wore a t-shirt.

hat - vintage, shirt - hunx & his punx show, pink button up - tessa's, sequin bow - topshop, skirt and heart tights - forever 21, shoes  - army & navy, mink coat - thifted

So my opa ordered this dress for me well before my birthday and it only just arrived today. I had to pay $28 for duty fees, which sucks. I hate DHL.

Ghouls and Ghosts

Halloween was the best! I loved every minute of the week, minus when I was working. I suck at bringing my camera out, plus I lost my flash so I relied on other people to take pictures and shitty webcam pix.

Friday Jody and I worked on my costume all day, but it wasn't ready for the night so I quickly threw on a bunch of black stuff and went as a goth. Pathetic, I know. I had on a giant black tinsel spiderweb, it looked like I was black Christmas. Met up with friends to go to 360 Glen, a night of covers of course! The Minutemen, David Bowie, B-52's (!!!), and a lot more but we had to leave half way through the B-52's set sadly. Seriously so sad about missing my favourite (cover) band, but the thing didn't start till 1, and people gotta sleep/work.

Saturday night was the big night. We finally finished my costume, and Jody's. We headed over to a house show for more cover bands!! I got super intoxicated and only remember Peaches and Britney Spears covers, then ending up at another party across the street.

Everyone thought I was a unicorn, or Nicki Minaj, or Katy fucking Perry. I was cotton candy, goddamnit!

Notice the mess of skeleton and fluff stuff we left around Jody's place, pretty sure it still hasn't been cleaned up. Oops.

Once I'd gotten completely inebriated the wig had a hard time staying up, plus it was pouring rain so my cone that I worked so hard on had completely folded over and I ended up looking more like a pink smurf.

Sunday and Monday I stayed home and recovered. Then Tuesday I was back out there! I hadn't thought much about costumes for the actual week of Halloween, so I quickly whipped up a Heather Chandler costume for a show at The Astoria on Tuesday.

I couldn't find any corn nuts.

That costume was fun, but no one knew who I was. Sadly I'm used to this.

Wednesday night I had work and didn't plan my costume before I went to work so I used what I had at work to make a Laura Palmer costume. I think I slay costumes on the go.

An Honest Weekend

Last weekend Jody and Vicky came over for fittings, we had a shoot to do the next day. Jody came over and I bleached the inside layers of her hair and dyed them blue/purple. We went over to their new house and watched My So-Called Life because they have American Netflix, which is amazing.

On Saturday we headed downtown to an outdoor show on possibly the last day of real summer. It was beautiful and warm out and the bands were really good. Plus I had a pizza sub from Subway, it was yummy! I had to leave the show early to get to work on time though, which was sad, I missed jelly boyz.

Sunday was the day of the shoot, I'm not going to say much about it, we're just waiting for the rest of the film to be developed and then I'll be putting up all the photos on girl-guts. But I'll leave you with these two previews which I'm sure you've already seen on tumblr.

Greetings From California

Yesterday afternoon I came home to a big package sitting on my bed, I was very excited, it felt like christmas morning. I quickly tore off the envelope to find a box wrapped in heart-covered paper, I took that off to find a red box with butterflies on it. Inside the box I found this! Months ago I won a giveaway put on by Alejandra, the stuff up for grab was her immense sticker collection. She warned me it was a big one, and damn was she right! I've never seen such a big sticker collection, and now it's all mine! I'm so happy! She also included a bunch of other stuff, garbage pail kids paraphernalia, devo pins (I was listening to them as I was opening this parcel, Alejandra how did you know?!), a cute pen, pokemon temporary tattoos, cross berets, lots of GLITTER, gum, hello kitty mints, and a ton of other stuff!

Be Kind To My Mistakes

I tried to wake up early on Saturday morning so I'd actually have time to do stuff. On Friday when Carmelle and I were on Commercial, we went into Barefoot Contessa, one of my favourite clothing stores in Vancouver, and spoke to the girls that work there about getting a job there. It's an adorable boutique that specializes in all things girly and beautiful, the owner shows off her various collections between the store's two locations, including Victorian doll houses and tea cups. Apparently they're hiring and are desperate for employees. I've applied there in the past, but that was before I had any retail experience. I was going to go there before work today and drop off my resume, but the night before I was up till 5 AM watching Quantum Leap on Netflix and didn't wake up till about 1:30.

This outfit was planned to make an impression at Barefoot Contessa, but I suppose I'll just have to save it for another opportunity. However I still wore this to work. There's a dress-code at my work, but it's not enforced.

Birthday Wishlist

My birthday is less than two weeks away and I've only just made my wishlist. It may sound sort of spoiled for an almost 21 year old to still be making wishlists, but quite of few of my relatives live far away and don't get to spend time with me, and we all know presents are an easy cure for neglect. Just kidding.

Besides, sometimes it's nice to have all your goals in one place. I just love making lists, sets, and I love organizing.

I Disconnect From You

I've had a busy couple of months, what with moving and a new job, I've had little time to spend with my loved ones. I hate to admit this but I hadn't seen Carmelle in a month. She's been working two jobs and just started school again so it's been hard to find time to spend together. We've both been feeling very alone lately and have been fighting because of it. We knew come September, we wouldn't be seeing each other very much, but we had no idea how hard we'd take it.

On Friday we finally were able to actually meet up and spend the day together. I was late (as usual), and it started raining as we met up so we decided to get some lunch at Sorry Babushka's. Its an alright breakfast place, I was highly peeved that they ran out of hollandaise sauce, I really wanted eggs benny. Instead I got a Montreal smoked meat sandwich, it was nothing to write home about.

Carmelle's happy veggie burger

After lunch we walked around Commercial Drive, checked out the book store where Carmelle bought me one of my birthday presents (the third in C. S. Lewis' sci-fi trilogy), which she's wrapping up and not letting me read until my birthday. I picked out it out, I'm annoyed!

We decided to head over to Prado Cafe, since it was raining and we hadn't made any real plans for the day. I got a mocha with beautiful latte art on the top and Carmelle just got a black drip coffee.

I'm not sure why I look like such a weird baby in this picture, why do I do that face? Carmelle was telling me that her brother has a similar pin to my 'V'one, apparently there are victory pins that look like that that were made for WWii veterans. My mom gave me mine for my 8th birthday, it's probably the one piece of my own jewellery that I've kept for that long (almost 13 years!!).
