Dark colors + stripes + aqua shoes

After writing a beautiful blog about how energized and happy I had been for the last couple of days. I've now hit rock bottom. I've hit that wall that we hit once we've run out of fuel. I hit that wall at work today, about 40 minutes before my shift ended, so that's good. But I've hit it hard. 
This morning I was scheduled to work 7:30 - 12. When I got there my manager told me that someone had called in and she had to go work at the other store, that she was going to leave me alone for an hour and then one of the assistants was going to show up. But if I could she needed me to stay until 4 pm. Which is okay, but not when you barely slept because your so used to falling asleep at 2 am instead of 11 pm. And it took you forever to fall asleep. But hey! who doesn't want the extra cash? 

Well, today's blog is an outfit post. So on this day I got dressed super fast. I originally wanted to wear a different shirt and no blazer, but I ended up wearing this outfit instead. This outfit was inspired by my desire to wear my shoes. So that's pretty much how this outfit came to be. Also, I love this skirt. I wear it all the time. 
Blazer: Dynamite

"that I'm fat, what else are they gunna say?"

“You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,


Love like you'll never be hurt,


Sing like there's nobody listening,


And live like it's heaven on earth.” 



Hey! Has anyone ever had a great couple days? Where even if something is going wrong, its alright. Almost like your overjoyed and nothing can bring you down? I've been having this exact emotion for the last couple days. I think it started mid-week. I went home to finally renew my passport because a) its expired, so i can't take any random trips and b) i'm going away in ONE week so ... I needed it.  
Anywho... While at work yesterday, me and my favorite co-worker were talking, she thinks I'm super funny (I am, teehee) and we had such a great time. So work was rather fun and immediately after that I went to the gym.  (woohoo) 

Speaking of the gym, I've been a Goodlife member for more then six years and this year I decided that maybe it was time to change gyms and try somewhere new. Best decision I've made this year? POSSIBLY.  I joined the Athletics club. I went for a tour this week and I was convinced the minute I got inside. Its fancy in there. It makes me feel like a baller. But I know, appearances can be deceiving but I decided that I wanted the grand tour. So what really made me decide to switch gyms after such a long time? A personal all woman's pool, sauna and steam room. Plus, Zumba classes almost every day at different times and a free fitness consultation and personal training session all for the same exact price I was paying at Goodlife. So, I'm sorry Goodlife, until you can offer me the same amenities here in Guelph, we're over. 

So, immediately after work I had lunch with my fabulous coworker and then I headed straight to the gym for my fitness consultation. And to let you know how that went... Just read the following text message below. 


Pretty much that's how that went down. But to be fair, the girl was really nice about. She wanted to know what motivated me. She also gave me a handy new workout regime that she thinks will work very well with my body type. So maybe this year, I'll actually be able to lose the weight I've been saying for the last ten years.

I'd also like to say happy birthday to Tim Horton. If you're Canadian, you know what Tim Horton means to us down here. I do love me some Timmies. 



I'll leave you with a simple question....
What do you guys do when you go to the gym?

The Insanity of the New Year.

Hello fellow bloggets!


I hope everyone had a Happy Holidays and a great New Years day. So whats been happening with me lately?
Well, I got a new job. 


I'm an official PayLess Shoe Source sales associate. 
Everything been going pretty good so far and I'm having a great time learning the ways of retail. 


 These pictures were taken by my photographer of a sister in law.
She has been wanting to take pictures outside and this was the day to do it.
I didn't really wanna wear this outfit, but I changed last minute because the other shirt and skirt I had on just looked weird. So I ended up throwing this together and now that I look at the pics, not too shabby.

so if Cindy wants to take anymore outdoor snow pics.
Le'sss do it.
