Oh don’t mind me–just showing off my new haircut which isn’t really new because I got it a few weeks ago but I enjoy the length that my stylist cut it at. I went to AliciaMelansonSalon on Barrington St. in Halifax and I highly recommend it! I’ve tried a few places around Halifax and I must say that this salon has been my favorite thus far. I lucked out by getting a great stylist named Katie Newall who was very attentive to what I wanted. She also shared some of her own personal tricks for creating volume in my hair and I’ve been using them ever since.

Anyway, I thought I’d share some of my favorite things this week.

Films: Last night Gordon and I indulged ourselves and paid for two tickets to ‘The Iron Lady’. In the two years that we’ve been together it was our first movie that we’ve watched together at an actual movie theatre. At first I was hopping to drag him to a cheesy chick-flick ‘The Vow’ but after the first 5 minutes of ‘The Iron Lady’ I knew that we’d made the right choice. I’ve been very emotional lately and something about the film just struck me as intensely sad, beautiful, inspiring and powerful and so I cried the entire time. I’m not kidding.

Musicians:  I know I’ve posted about these guys before but I cannot get enough of how good they are! In the interest of full disclosure I should mention that I might be slightly bias as one of the band members is Gordon’s good friend, Keenan.

The videography and editing for this video is really good too. Also, if you’d be so kind to visit their facebook page and click ‘like’ I’m sure they’d be ever grateful!

Activity:  This past week my roomates and I were given the opportunity to cat-sit a beautiful little-rascal of a cat named Taters. I ended up capturing some cute moments and my heart exploded.

Appreciation:  I’ve been feeling overwhelmed for a few weeks now and sometimes it seems as if everything is set against me but I’ve been trying to find the good energy and positive outcomes in every situation. There will be a lot exciting changes coming up within the next few months (Gordon and I found our very own beautiful apartment) and I will be graduating university with a degree! For now I’ll leave you with this picture of a soft snowfall outside my window.

Have a fabulous day and leave a link in the comments with some of your favorite things lately!
