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!

Oh my goodness, I’ve been away from this blog for quite a long time. It’s odd how fast time flies (especially around exam/holiday time). I’m currently back in BC for the holidays and today my family and I picked up my poppy from the airport. Afterwards we headed over to a family friend’s house for a delicious brunch that was presented so beautifully. I wish I had my camera to show you how lovely the entire spread looked.

Anyway, I wanted to update everyone on some of my winter goals which I’ve actually been trying to stick to. In terms of my wardrobe re-haul, I’ve been making some progress with sticking to my strict rules of choosing classic and well-cut pieces for my wardrobe that will last me for a while. Two new things that I bought are this jean jacket and these new boots which I felt will carry my through milder winter days as well as the Spring weather in Halifax. I love the ‘tougher’ look of the jean material paired with the leather and buckle.

Oh! I wanted to post this video from my boyfriend’s best friends band in Vancouver. They’re called “The River and The Road” and all I can say is…wow. I’ve been listening to them non-stop. Here is the video for ‘I Tried’ sung by Keenan Lawlor
