Vacation, booze, summer loving, driving, picture taking, fishing, etc have been keeping me away from the blogging community. At this moment, I have 218 blog posts that I need to read on bloglovin (ps: I'm on bloglovin! follow me... k thnx) and I WILL read them all. However, first things first, a little blog post for all my devoted followers/stumblers.
I've been in Corner Brook for the past two weeks or so, and I have been loving every minute of it. I miss my friends from St. John's dearly, but this has been such a fun time. Although I have not caught up with everyone I'm hoping to see while I'm between moving (from St. John's to Vancouver), it's been nice to be home.
Last night I went on a dinner date with my best friend Jenn; we went to a restaurant on the main drag of Corner Brook that had an open patio/deck. We were later joined by another good friend Meag Mazoo, and we drank too much beer to keep our bellies un-bloated. Let me just say that I love talking with old friends... tonight, the most domineering topic was how much we fucking swear all the time. In our opinion, cursing just emphasizes every thought to a certain degree rather than saying a sentence without cursing. HOWEVER... this is a very close-minded opinion and we all hope to change our cursing ways. This reminds me of a quote I heard blasting through my speakers earlier today, from a little song called Otis by Jay-Z and Kanye West featuring Otis Redding... "Sophisticated ignorance, write my curses in cursive".. Well, it's one thing to relate to a quote by Kanye, but another thing to try and live up to it. Uhmm, no thanks.
This outfit that I'm displaying is from... *gulp* last week. Yes it's taken me that long to write a post. The weather here has been
jean jacket: the gap (similar). dress: jessica simpson (similar). necklace: forever 21 (old). shoes: birkenstock. sunglasses: ray ban wayfarer.
Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to my go-to look. It includes: A sky-high bun, my overly-loved jean jacket, some shades to cover the eyes (which may or may not be swollen from a hangover), and a dress. I very rarely style my bun; I usually just shove it up in with one elastic and then go. However, this is a more structured look, similar to the bun found here on my friend Jenn. I also very rarely wear something this short. One of my biggest insecurities is the size of my legs. I do not have crazy cellulite, but my thighs are something one does not want to reckon with. They are huge. They will suffocate you in a duel in which you are bound to lose. But, after a few months of soul searching on this little blog of mine, I've gained so much confidence. Although my thighs will always shake, my confidence will not. (shake... my confidence will not shake... see what I did there?)
About the photographs... YES the photos are instagrammed, YES they're taken by my cell phone. However, I have some exciting news; I will be purchasing a PROFESSIONAL camera for when I move to Vancouver. I'd love to get one before leaving home; Newfoundland deserves some beautiful shots taken by a professional camera (and also by a professional photographer) but I'm thinking that I'll want to make a portfolio of my work while at Blanche Macdonald, so it seems like a smart investment. I'll also probably have a better choice of cameras out west. What camera do you use? Any suggestions?
Thanks for reading, I love you all.
