late night movie outing

In my opinion, the hardest part about going out with your friends is actually choosing somewhere to go.  I live in the city and thought there are a lot of museums, parks, neighbourhoods etc there never seems to be anything new and exciting for us to do.  As dramatic as it seems, we've basically been to it all.  At times like these, I tend to wish I could get out of the city and explore the rest of the country and the world.

A few days ago, it suddenly dawn on me that I haven't actually been anywhere else in my country except for Quebec when I was a kid, and Guelf just recently this summer.  So as much as I have always dreamed of travelling the world, perhaps I should explore what my own country has to offer.

That  being said, Sena and I eventually decided on seeing a movie.  It was quite spontaneous, which is more exciting at times.  We went to go see the movie Nerve on Thursday and it was pretty cool.  We almost had the whole theatre to ourselves but just as the movie started a few people came in too.

I love watching movies because it feels great discovering an actor I've not really heard about but really end up liking.  It broadens my spectrum and leads me to discovering even more movies I never existed.  It's also great witnesses up and coming actors shoot to landing well deserving roles.  Though Emma Roberts and Dave Franco do make an amazing on-screen couple, there was another guy that I just loved, named Miles Hiezer.  I look forward tons being him in more movies :)  oh ya and I can't forget Nick Robinson.  He's an actor I've recently discovered and admire his talent.  Just had to add that in there since we were on the topic of movies.
My denim jacket was only two dollars from the Salvation Army Thrift Store!  The bag was from Goodwill before all its chains closed in Toronto :( The shirt is an oldie from my mom and my jeans are Aeropostale.  I love wearing blue. Blue blue blue blue blue.
Sena and I had a lot of time to kill before the show started so we ventured off the Indigo, which is a big bookstore where I live.  It's right across the theater since they're located in a "mall" I guess I would call it.  I spotted this book and am definitely adding it to my to-read list.  I want to read as many books as I can this summer.

Thanks for reading <3

figuring things out

These past few months I've neglected to blog, I have actually grown quite a lot.  My interests and ambitions have shifted, which is why I have been focusing on other projects beside my blog.  I'm pondering about starting a second blog dedicated to my sewing and craft projects because I'd really like to document my progress and ideas just like I am now with my style.  But the idea of having two blogs makes me feel as though I'm not very organized or consistent and I'm spreading myself too thin.  On the other hand, I'm sure it would really bug me if I archived it all onto this blog.  For now I am leaning towards creating another blog, perhaps on Wordpress because I've heard good things about it.  I just need to think of a name.

The commencing of the new month felt like a logical way to clear whatever has been on my mind and put them into writing; something I've definitely been meaning to do for a while now.

Hopefully tomorrow I can go downtown and check out some beading stores because I'm super stocked to try my hand at making crowns and jewelry.

I'm also reading and ordering lots of books since I've been deprived during the school year.

Oh ya I just saw Eddie the Eagle today and it was spectacular!  Taron Egerton is an amazing actor and the film got me so engaged and excited.

This post is starting to feel like a journal entry but I don't mind.  I've never ben one to commit to writing in a journal.  Ironic.

I suppose I'll sign off for now and include a collection of photos from the past few months and what has currently been inspiring me.  I know my blog isn't very big but it's something I think I'll also cherish and come back to even if it's only for my sake.

Thanks for reading <3
I'm thinking of starting another sewing project inspired my this early 1900s outfit from Downton Abbey.  The 1900s was never an era that caught my eye, but I used to watch Downton Abbey an their costumes are always fun to admire.  I thought I'd give it a go.  I bought a greenish blueish charmeuse satin fabric at the beginning of July, which will hopefully do the trick.

The renaissance era has completely changed my sewing game for sure.  I plan on making a corset and lovely gowns and beautiful headpieces.  I've definitely been doing more hand sewing and I'm loving it!

Just a little progress pictures I took of a painting I did for my mom.  Definitely was referring to Camille Pissaro but I plan I doing my own when I have the time

I visited Guelf with my mom and sister this weekend and the buildings were so dainty and beautifully constructed compared to what I'm used to seeing in the city.

I actually totally forgot about this picture until I was scrolling through my photo gallery just now but it's so sick!  Courtesy of my iPhone, oh yeah

My best friends gave my a gorgeous bracelte for my birthday and it is my all time favourite <3  Thanks Sena and Lindsay 

Onto some cool pictures of head pieces I found on Pintrest.  These are getting me sooooooo excited to make my ownnnnnnn :) eeeeeee
