Dumb Me. Sorry

Hey y'all

So this is a big filler. Well, it won't be big (as in long) just a filler cuz I'm still kinda sick and I really want to do a music kind of video so I need to wait longer till my voice will be good as new.

Sorry for not commenting, doing posts or anything in general. I've been super busy with my school and stuff so I haven't had a load of time for the blog or anything. 

New things that have happened:

-my team won our soccer league. yay! but for some dumb rule, we hav to play against the other league winners to see who moves up to the Premiere League

-I'm on the field hockey team. Me and my friend Misia (pronounced mee-sha like Mischa Barton) are the only gr. 9s

-uh, i kinda met a guy. we kinda argue about a lot of things but it's not that big of a deal. but i'm betting everybody nothing will ever happen. i think i hav some guy shield or something that lets them be my friends but nothing more.

-going to the Stratford Festival. Stratford is a place in Ontario that holds this play festival for 2 0r 3 days and they usually do Shakespeare stuff. My whole program (I'm in this special math and science program) will be going

Well, that's all. Hopefully my voice will be better by Friday. But you never know.

No Longer a Virgin to Virgin Festival

Hey y'all, this is a just a quick post because I HAVE to pack today for my trip to Pinecrest tomorrow (4 days!)!

Anyways, this Sunday I went to Vfest and it was pretty awesome. Here's some highlights and the MAJOR lowlight of the whole day.

-free stuff. seriously, they LOVE to give u free stuff, whether for Future Shop, candy, Subway gift cards, bags, they give it out. I now have a nice bag of loot (in a nice bag from Motorola haha)

-discovering new bands. So, I definitely found out about new bands that I didn't know about (the Weakerthans, Silversun Pickups and now I really should listen to the Stereophonics I put on my iPod) but the definite best band I now know about was Paper Lions. I listened to their set because I thought the name was cool and sounded like me (if u go to muchmusic's blog, one girl said the exact same thing haha), so my cousin and I went to the centre and the front of the stage (hardly anybody was their at first) and the music was fun, moving, energetic. Plus they LOVED to talk to the crowd. It's nice when they do that so people can connect with the band. Also got their autographs AND 2 of the members photo with us. yays!

-the crowd. This was the BIGGEST concert/festival I've been to with over 25 000. INSANE. People came from ALL OVER (1 guy came from S. Carolina) just to see bands (specifically Oasis, more on that later). I kinda hated the pot smoking and the crowd surfers but that was the first time I've been to a venue with them so it was pretty cool (not that I did any of those things, just interesting to experience it). I find that while I hate standing and all, the crowd does pump you and motivate you and make you laugh (so many jokes now!! haha) Pretty awesome.

and for the one LOWLIGHT:


ya, I KNOW. I LOVE OASIS. Cool music and the lyrics, it all works. And they did do their job, but here's why it's the lowlight.

Ok, so go to about 1:30 and you will see some idiot/moron/bastard ATTACK Noel. Then Liam tries to fight the attacker but the people hold him back (WHY????). Honestly, everybody in the crowd (over 20 000 people!!) was going to kill that guy (we were chanting "fuck that guy up.").
Oasis still played but they definitely weren't happy so the set was cut short (very short) and didn't do an encore (or sing Champagne Supernova!!! But they did sing "The Walrus" SING UR OWN SONG!)

Ya, it was a great festival (even with the moron) and I'm probably gonna come back again and again just to hear more music. BUT at least I know some pretty good tips (like to get in as much sitting time as possible!) so I'll be prepared.

So, when I get back, because of this whole festival thing and me going to see Feist in November (gasp! ANOTHER concert.), I'm gonna do outfits with every concert wear (mostly tees) I have. Sound cool?? Also, since my cousin had a better camera, I'll post pics from the festival next post too!

Maybe you've got to save me

Can I Take Your Order?

dress: vintage
guitar belt: gift to sister but she gave to me
shoes: Macy's

Hey there!! Firstly, I am super sorry that I haven't posted in so long. High school is INSANE (in a good way of course). And then soccer last night made me SO tired (we won and are REALLY close to winning the league) so that's why I haven't made comments on some people's blog (like ellie's!!!i hav to read SO many posts this weekend).  

Anywhoo, last Saturday I went to Kensington Market (best vintage area for Torontonians!) and first of all, I know that vintage shops get that musky kind of smell and sometimes it gets a little strong but I don't mind but there was one store that smelled like a really bad restroom. But this little dress was in a nice store with no smell and I was quite happy about that haha. It really has this diner feel to it and I love the colour (it looks pretty bold against my skin tone so I think that works haha). But there was one area that looked bulgy (stupid unflat stomach) so I just added the belt and voila! Problem solved.

So, since my school is quite awesome (and so is the program that I'm in), I am going on 3 trips in the span of 4 weeks. Seriously. I AM SO FRIGGIN HAPPY! 

Missing school + hanging out with really interesting people + doing really cool activities= SUPREME UTTERLY FANTASTIC FEELING!!!

Sorry, I HAD to say that. But anyways, this means that I won't have a post up so soon! I know, just egg my house already (must do that to someone soon...hey I'm not ALWAYS nice, I LOVE revenge). But I will try to do my best and hopefully can do a post on VFest (with pics!). 

Order up!

Stereotype THIS!

Guys, I have to say this last month of blogging fashion has been fun. It's cool that I finally hit the double digits and have found new blogs that I love and enjoy. So, thank you very much. 

However, as September is drawing nearer, I am happy to say that going back to music will be nice. I'm definitely not going to completely stop fashion posts, but don't expect a fashion post every week. Maybe I can get my sis to videotape me singing
 on the piano or something for the first music post of the school year. 

Anyways, as a fashion post finale of sorts , I decided to do the idea of stereotypes represented in clothing. 


shirt: Forever 21 (it has Schubert!!)
vest: Macy's
tights: American Apparel
oxfords: Macy's
fedora: friend bought for halloween costume (we were spy vs. spy)


vest, shirt, shoes, skirt: Macy's
tights: AA
bag: godmother gave me for a present

THE ARIA TYPE (girl from Pretty Little Liars books)

shirt (underneath): PacSun (for free!)
shirt (on top): Steve And Barry's (Dear line)
skirt: Forever 21
leggings: Macy's
boots: Spain (very worldly)
bag: Italy (also worldly!!) 


shirt: Coldplay concert
jeans: PacSun
Keds: Macy's (3 bucks!)
belt: gift from cousins
Mickey Mouse tie: vintage (aka mom's closet haha)

THE SLUT (aka the girls who wear tight clothing from hollister and A&F)

jacket: gift (used because it resembles an A&F sweater)
top: Wet Seal 
jeans: Urban Planet (really crappy, cheap store where i got the jeans for 10 bucks)
heels (hard to see): JCPenny
bag: gift

THAT GIRL (i had no idea what sterotype this could be)

shirt: Urban Outfitters
belt: Target
dress: PacSun
skirt (underneath): Forever 21
tights: American Apparel
oxfords: Macy's
bag: vintage (mom's)
parasol: vintage (mom's friend gave to her)

Well, this was interesting/fun/strange/cool to do. Lots of outfits for you to (hopefully!) like. Also, today I got a trim and dyed my hair. Lookee here!
So now my hair is darker and has a reddish tone. Ya, the pic is crap but I'm not taking another one. Also, instead of my usual wavy hair that gets blowed dried, I asked the stylist to straighten it cuz whenever I do it, it's crap. So this is a nice change. It looks better wavy but it's nice to know what it looks like REALLY straight.

Post you later


so, when I bought my VFest tickets, they didn't have any small bands or anything yet, just the headliners of Foo Fighters and Oasis. So I obviously choose Oasis (cuz the Foo Fighters are VERY annoying). So then I start to see that since Oasis is the much better headliner, that the Foos get all the good openers: The Fratellis, Wintersleep, Constantines AND MGMT. But Oasis had Paul Weller and the Cribs so I was happy. UNTIL THE CRIBS BACKED OUT. I have no idea why they did this but now I AM REALLY ANGRY. GRRRRR... teaches me to buy tickets early.

Guys, I'm sorry that I've not done a post yet, especially since school is drawing nearer. BUT I PROMISE PROMISE PROMISE by this sunday, a new fashion post will be up.

Anywhoo, today is probably the greatest night of my life. Or one of the greatest.

Did I receive my first kiss? noooooooo(needs to happen soon dang it!!)

Did I get my first boyfriend?noooooooooooooooo(also needs to happen SOON)

Did I get a part in a Narnia movie so I can finally meet the guy of my dreams, Mr. Skandar Keynes? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO (I wish)

I just got the first goal of my entire rep soccer career. As most of my friends hardly play any sports, THIS IS A BIG DEAL. A MAJOR DEAL. LIKE THIS IS WHY I TELL THE WHOLE BLOG WORLD DEAL BECAUSE IT'S SO BIG.

Since I play stopper (aka DEFENCE) to get a goal IS BIG. I can give you the break down here but it's pretty boring. Actually this whole post is boring so WHATEVER.

Ball bounces towards me. No one beside me. I run, line up my foot and kick it. Hard. It soars high into the air. So high you can't judge where it will land. The goalie has her hands in the air, ready to catch after the ball bounces. Ball bounces, goalie jumps, misses ball, ball into net. Here's where I scream the phrase: OMIGOD, I JUST SCORED!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

ya, that was the shindig. I was already feeling like crap since I gave a penalty kick last game. THIS MADE UP FOR IT.

ok, I'll shut up. I'll have a post REAL SOON, I PROMISE.

Later (still on my goal high)

Say What?!

Hey-lo to you too, fellow blogonians. Thanks supercalifragilisticexpialidocious for the comments! I have finally hit the double digits (CELEBRATE NOW!!!)

So, I just found about the queen of new ska (aka Gwen Stefani) and her hubby had their second kid. I was exited, not because of what the gender is or who he/she (it is a he) would resemble more but of the anticipated name of the child. Normally, if this was a family member or someone else I know, the name isn't as big as a deal because generally, they want something classy/sophisticated/nice/normal etc. so the naming isn't as extravagant. BUT since it's a celeb, they MUST MUST MUST outdo all of the other celebrities who named their kids strange. So, I decided to do a post dedicated to this manner.

10. David Duchovny and Tea Leoni-Kyd Miller Duchovny 
What was the inspiration?? They were like "Hey, this is our second kid. Hmmm, THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GREAT NAME??" I'm just imagining the confusion whenever someone yells out the word "kid"

9. Rob Morrow-Tu Morrow
If none of you guys know who this guy is, he plays the cop brother on Numb3rs, FYI. I like the occasional pun here and then but I want to know if he named his daughter as a joke. Honestly, is this going to help her??? I don't think so.

8. Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale- Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale
I was pretty excited when I heard Gwen was preggers again and hoped for a baby Gwen. To my dismay, Gwen had another son whose name sounds like a girl's. It's not that I hate it, I just find it to be more feminine. Plus, why Rock as a middle name? His brother's name sounds so majestic and Zuma's name is...well, sinking like a rock.

7. Nicolas Cage- Kal-El
Nic Cage said he wanted something exotic and still very American. So why not name your kid after Superman. Clark isn't bad. But Mr. Cage decided that it wasn't good enough so let's name him what Superman was originally called Kal-El, son of Jor-El. Isn't there a better way of showing your love for comics??

6. Sylvester Stallone- Sage Moonblood
I'm giving some props to Sly just because he made sure the weirder name is not her first name. Still, you had to use the word "blood" in it someway, didn't you? (Note: what is Moonblood??)

5. Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow- Apple Blythe Allison Martin
Ok, I love both of these people. And the name isn't that strange. First of all, Apple is on here because if you add an "i" to Martin, her name would be Apple Martini (great job!). Also, upon reading Gwyneth's explanation on why they named her Apple, Gwyneth hardly seemed to know herself. Finally, last month Chris (who I still like) said this, quote "There's nothing weird about calling your baby Chewbacca if that's what you want to call your baby". Chris, THERE ARE MANY THINGS WRONG WITH YOU IF YOU NAME YOUR KID AFTER A WOOKIE. That's why Apple is on the list. 

4. Frank Zappa- any of his kids
Ok, if none of you guys know, Frank has named all his children VERY strangely. His kids' names are: Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen. Ya, he had a pretty cool last name but I think I would trade it for Smith if my first name was any one of those.

3. Penn Jillette- Moxie Crimefighter
Here we are folks, take 1 magician and a lady and PRESTO! You get Moxie Crimefighter. Really, it's bad enough you had to name her after a soda (which tastes awful) but you just had to give her a career also?? At least if she somehow receives Daddy's "magical" skills, she already has a name for that character. 

2. Jermaine Jackson- Jermajesty


1. Jason Lee- Pilot Inspektor Riesgraf Lee
I don't hate Jason Lee. He's somewhat entertaining on My Name's Earl, he seems to be not into the Hollywood Scene a lot, he sounds like a regular guy gone famous. SO WHY DID HE NAME HIS KID THIS??? I don't even know how to pronounce the 3rd name and why is Inspector spelled with a "K"?? It's all truly mind boggling. What's the kid's nickname? Pi?? Here is a true example of a celeb kid who may end up killing his self/father/mother/anybody because of the name he was stricken with. 

Well, that's my list but when you comment (and please do comment!), why don't you add some names you find weird, or who I should put in a different spot, etc. Next post will have lots of outfits, I promise.

Keep on rocking in the free world (haha, narduar)

Back to School Special (with Sports!)

Hi there! So, besides watching the Beijing '08 24/7, this Saturday I went to the States for some BTS (back to school) shopping (which kinda sucked since I had to miss Phelps' last race...argh). So I actually got lots of stuff that I much that my room is a pig sty now. Really it's almost impossible to get to my closet. Observe.

Ya, ugly, messy, horrible. Will do something about it...later. So, besides getting things like pens, calendar and locker stuff, I HAD to get new clothes (it's high school!!!). So I went to places like Macy's, Forever 21, PacSun and Urban Outfitters (though I didn't get clothes from there)

So, I remember Sam from the Wandering Alchemist talking about how sometimes there are clothes that are just made for you and I was like "ya but I CAN'T FIND THEM!!" Until now!! I saw this skirt from F21 and i chose the 2 sizes (it differs) I generally fit in when i saw the dress. It's like a Mondrian piece. And it fit just right and I believe it was like 25 dollars!  I was SO FRIGGIN HAPPY. I already had an outfit in my head so here it is! 
NB (*=bought on this trip)

dress*-Forever 21
belt*-Target (got that skinny and wide belt I wanted)
tights- American Apparel (finally used a different colour from the green)
oxfords*-Macy's (not the Mary Janes but still very cool)

vest*= Macy's (got it half off!)
shirt= mom bought (forget where)
jeans*=PacSun (yay! bright red! though there were some coloured shorts I saw but none in my size)

So even though I didn't buy any clothing from Urban Outfitters, I did buy some bright yellow nail polish! Very nice. May buy more of that nail polish when I go downtown this Wednesday (before soccer).

Also happy to announce Canada has FINALLY got medals. I seriously thought we were never gonna get any but look at us now! Yay! Hopefully we can get some gold when it comes to Vancouver (we've NEVER EVER won gold when the Olympics came to Calgary and Montreal. It's so sad). Also pissed off at the judges giving Nastia silver when she tied with the Chinese girl (who's probably underage). They should have done a tie breaker. ALSO, did anyone see Liu Xiang walk off the track??? SO SAD! I wanted to give him a big hug. I also read that they had a press conference and that his coach cried multiple times and said he's struggled with that tendon for years. What a tragedy. 

Ya, maybe should make this more Olympian??? haha, no that would make this blog lamer than it already is but maybe should do more sports inspired outfit??? No, somehow I'm thinking I would screw it up majorly and resemble this girl...ok, NOT THAT BAD but somehow thinking it won't be good (ok, does ANYONE think she looks beautiful?? honestly, why???)

wow, very long.
