A Whole Lot Of Updates & An Outfit Post

So I think I am back now. That was an unexpectedly long hiatus. I took a whole bunch of outfit pictures in between, but I just never felt motivated to put up any posts. Also I was having a lot of computer problems (one day I turned on my laptop and almost all my programs were gone, I couldn't download things, it was weird and frustrating) and that made it difficult to do things online. Thanks to Colin re-installing Windows 7 that problem seems to be fixed now and things are back to normal. I think I am just going to post sporadically, and only when I feel like it. There will probably be weeks where I post a lot, and some weeks where I don't post at all., but hey what can you expect from someone who works two jobs, runs an etsy shop and has a life on top of that.

Without further ado here is my first post in more than a month. I apparently forgot to take pictures of the back so I apologize about that. Enjoy!

What I Wore:
Shirt: Made by me (New Look pattern)
Pants: ASOS
Boots: ModCloth

I made this shirt in the summer and I really need to wear it more often. It's just not that appropriate for winter because it looks weird when you wear it under a sweater, and god damn if this hasn't been a sweater every day kind of winter. I actually wore this in January on a very rare warmish day. We haven't really had any of those since then, it has been bitterly cold here. I can't wait for spring. I got these boots in December with my green Christmas dress, and I did wear them together and it looked pretty cute if I do say so myself. In case you were wondering for the next few outfit posts I went back to taking pictures in our hallway because I was sick of moving furniture away from the window in our bedroom. That problem has mostly been solved now so I might go back to my pretty curtains and bench, we'll see if the set up still works. I have a large backlog of pictures, so it will be a while before that scene resurfaces anyway. 

This month has actually been relatively insane so far, I always choose the best times to take on more things. March break is this week, and it is also maple syrup program time at the museums so I have been very busy there. I also got to help move some furniture in one of the houses a few weeks ago too because they are re-finishing the floors. It was nice to be able to work more closely with the collection, especially since that is what I want to do more of in the future. Our apartment is coming together, we finally put up that shelf in our bedroom and moved some of the excess furniture around. I want to get to IKEA soon and look at some more storage options just for the random odds and ends, but I feel like the place is at least livable and I don't feel embarrassed when guests come over. I have been playing a lot of Animal Crossing, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask and Pokemon Y lately too. They also added Pokemon Indigo League to Netflix, so you know what I have been watching. I am also almost done the X-Files (which I started watching in September), I have 8 episodes left! More to come on that in a future post. All in ll this is shaping up to be a pretty good month, if only the snow and cold would go away things would be awesome. What have you been up to? 


  1. Totally do the blog when I feel like it thing. Makes it so much more enjoyable!! Yay for nearly finishing X-files!! Did you like it? I keep meaning to go to IKEA too...but I know when I go there for the 1 thing i actually need, I'll find a hundred other things that I didn't know that I needed!!

  2. I was trying to do that before but I felt like I also needed to blog at least once a week so there was some pressure coming from myself. I am taking a much more relaxed attitude this time around.
    I literally just watched the last episode and am still in a bit of a daze. I had less left then I thought and blew through them all tonight. I still need to watch the final movie, but overall I really enjoyed the series. I felt like it of kind of lost it's way a bit around season 7/8 but picked up in the last season. I might write a post focusing on my thoughts, not sure.
    I know what you mean about IKEA, I love it too much. My mum used to run a daycare and once in a while we would take a day trip there and just look at everything. I blame her for my love of that place.

  3. Welcome back! I'm also a pretty sporadic blogger, so as long as people are on my list I get their posts eventually. It is supposed to be fun. I love the red top - great job! Hopefully the snow melts for you soon.

  4. Thank you! Yeah, sporadic blogging is my new approach. I hope the snow melts soon too, no more winter!
