PS. I love youimageI love yarn. I got out these pretties and my needles again this week. I dunno, there’s something about fall that just makes me want to curl up under a blanket with a hot drink, a good movie or album and just knit knit knit all day long.

the science kid strikes again.

normally i would post something like this after a regular post in my little “ps. i love you” segment, but the anatomy/science/jurassic-park-loving kid in my is geeking out too much to use capitals let alone wait till i have something good to blog about to share this with you.

so yesterday i got my new nylon and didn’t get a chance to look at it until just a little while ago, and when i did i saw this…imagewhat are you freaking out about you say? here’s a better look…image i am dying inside right now. these shoes are one of the most amazing things i have ever, ever seen. if they didn’t come with a pricetag of several thousand dollars i would consider buying a pair to display in my home.

i am obsessed with these. i can hardly contain myself and have been looking at them all day.

i don’t even know how to end this post. . .



i’m so excited by these shoes i forgot the important bits. they are by dean and dan of dsquared (represent for the canadians!! holler) for their f&w 2010 collection.

{{Fall in Love}}.

This weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving and while I welcomed fall at the end of August, this holiday kind of welcomes fall back for the normal people in Canada (aka those who aren’t waiting all through winter, spring and summer for the return of fall).

I’ve been listening to this playlist kind of non-stop for the past couple off weeks, making small changes here and there, perfecting it so I can share it with all of you lovelies.

So here it is,Fall in Love, kind of a transition from the bright electric sounds of summer to the more robust songs that characterize the sunny days and cool nights of fall.

Create a playlist at

So grab your fave fall drink, curl up with some knitting, or other crafty activity, your favourite magazine, scroll down and see my new hair and enjoy.

Happy Autumn!! (and happy thanksgiving to all my Canadian pals!!)

PS. I love youimageimage

These Dexter posters are fantastic. I would love to have every single one. (Thanks Katie!!)

“Got muh hurrr did”

For those of you who don’t speak ghetto, that title is “Got my hair done.” ha!

Let me preface this post by saying I *love* my stylist. When I moved over to the other side of the city, I left an amazing stylist but it was too far of a ride on public transit (considering I’m carless) to go over just to get my hair done – especially when there are probably 10 or 15 salons within a 10 minute walk of my building. I tried out a bunch of different stylists and after almost a year I found one that I love. I have complete trust in Michelle and kind of give her free reign to run with the idea I have every time I get my hair done.

Anyways, tonight I got my hair done, told her kind of what I wanted and let her have at it. This is what I look like now (please excuse the dirty mirror):IMG_0172IMG_0173IMG_0174Eeeee! Crazy right? I really love it – its super different and the back is half long/half short too. I don’t know how she manages to kill it every time, but she does. I’m so fascinated watching people cut hair, because it really is their art form. Its really interesting to watch her work on my hair and then see this at the end. I’m interested to see what my family will think this weekend (its Canadian thanksgiving this weekend)  when I go home.

Also, Michelle asked me if I would ever consider being in a photo shoot for her. Of course I would! She and a few of her stylist friends occasionally do some shoots for their portfolios and apparently it’s hard to come by guys with interesting hair. ha! We’ll see what comes of that in the future.

Tonight is homework. Tonight is Greys. Tomorrow is a bit of homework. Tomorrow is packing almost all of my laundry so I can do it at home this weekend. Tomorrow or Saturday I will post my fall playlist so check back for that.

I love you. J.

Ps. I love you.

I tweeted about the SS 2011 Collection by Jil Sander last week, but here is a video from the show in Milan a couple weeks ago. I don’t know what it is about the collection, but I think it is super inspiring.

A New Project & A New Layout

So the other day I mentioned some exciting news and that news is that I am now a member of The Creative Type! I was thrilled when Danielle asked me if I wanted to join and I am so excited to be a part of the team of super talented ladies over there. We are changing things up, doing things a little bit differently and its all really exciting stuff.

Anyways, we are back for the fall season with a new prompt. This month the challenge is to create a layout about someone who inspires you. We all chose to do a layout about or inspired by or lifted from someone else on the DT.

Of course, since I had just visited her, I did mine about Vanessa. I was feeling extra “artsy” the night I cranked this layout out, so I channelled my inner Vee, Dina and Dani and ended up using lots of mists and paints etc. Because I failed at taking pictures during my little trip photo cred goes to the talented Mandi (thanks Lady!).  Thanks to Steven for insisting I keep that little pink ride ticket from the fair – because it was the perfect little addition to my layout along with my admission ticket (the red one) which I didn’t mean to keep but was in my bag when I cleaned it out. Aaaand the super cool red sibling rivalry label was from the bottle of wine we enjoyed on the Saturday night (not the actual bottle, but another bottle of the same that I have since consumed). Nostalgic right?

Aaanyways the point is, you should head over to the Creative Type to check out the new things going on, and to check out this month’s prompt. And if you do play along, link me up because I definitely want to see.


PS. I love youimage Kara blogged the second instalment of her “Hey I Know You” series this week, in which she interviewed her super charming grandma who is an eloquent writer and an amazing painter. It is so inspiring and really lovely and you should check it out here.
