Sorry for the lack of outfit posts or posts in general, guys. I've been so swamped with work and I'm not at my own house so I don't have any blog-worthy outfits to showcase. I'll be updating soon, though!
Here's a little survey for your time. I was tagged a long time ago but I'll do it now.
What is your shoe size?
I am a US 8-8.5, I have no idea in UK sizes?
Where do you work?
My University. :) I'm looking for a second job.
Your favorite blog?
Bigsuit Blog, The Red Rosette, Pull-Teeth, Toxic Disco Boy, Curvy Girl Chic, Jasifer's Lion Club... all of which can be found on my 'blogs I love' section! There's too many but those are what comes to mind right now.
Do you have any pets?
How many siblings do you have?
If you could live anywhere, where would it be?
Montreal or London!
What were you doing before this?
Getting angry because I was woken up haha.
Your favorite food?
Do you have a middle name?
That's a secret.
Blogger, Facebook, Twitter, Livejournal... :)

Don't you love those days where you can just sit down and relax? Yesterday, my co-worker told me we had a day off from work today! I thought I had to go to the doctors today but it's actually tomorrow... so I spent all my day sleeping in then going out with my boyfriend. I had sushi for dinner! HA... ha.. ha. It's actually cheap at this place we go to, so it's affordable and so, so good. Then we walked by an abandoned church, it's so creepy just looking at it.
What is the best thing to do to relax? Of course, and I baked! I baked macarons. I kind of screwed up my first batch but I improved on my 2nd one.
I would normally blog about my macarons on my food blog but I'll probably do a big macaron post on my food blog soon. My first batch was a disaster because I was careless, I knew they were meringues and they shouldn't be overcooked. I accidentally put the temperature at 180 C and they got burnt and did not develop the "pieds" macarons do. Oh well! Trial and error.
I stopped by the crafts store to buy food colourant and stuff. Afterwards my boyfriend and I decided to stop by the Bulk Barn and buy ingredients for my next baking adventures. My boyfriend went overboard and bought an arseload full of candy. THEN, we went to see "The Karate Kid". Was cliche and okay... not something I'd go see again really.
Here's what I ended up wearing.
Dress H&M Garden Collection | BeltThrifted | Boots Thrifted Harley Davidson (lol) | Blazer Old Navy Thrifted. | Wallet Guess
I love this dress, it's so flowy and gorgeous! It's dark but still feminine! I wouldn't have been able to snag this dress without my online twin, Maria. I love her so much for buying me this dress!
Here it is in detail.
Here are the boots I got. I love them. They're comfy and they can "toughen" up my outfits, haha...
Overall, a good day. <3

Hi everyone, sorry for my absence. It's nearly a week since I updated but I'm back. The reason being was because I had personal affairs and I was sick. I have an ear infection and it sucks so much! I don't wish anyone that pain. Anyway, I went out to the movies today after being busy all week.

Have a good week everyone! I have a lot of things to catch up to such as read all these blogs on my Google reader, clean up my room (it's like a tornado hit it ha ha) and ship some stuff off. I've also found myself addicted to Sims 2 for the time being...

Another uneventful day. Went to work and grocery shopping, bought new nail polish! Went out for a drive and now I'm home. I'm not feeling so well again. For some reason my ear is clogged as if you were in high altitude and it won't stop. Sigh. I think I'm getting a cold. (Again).

Well tonight I'll watch some movies and cuddle in the blankets with my boyfriend. Have a good day everyone!

Dress American Eagle Outfitters | Denim Jacket Purchased in a Garage Sale | Shoes Taken from my moms closet | Necklace F21
Here you can see my tummy in all it's bumpy-glory. :( Oh, cellulite. At least I'm not photoshopping it. This is me, and apparently the wind was against me this day because the rest of the time my clothes did not cling onto me like that!
Now this outfit has nothing to do with Alice in Wonderland but it is relevant because today my boyfriend and I went to go to the 2nd hand theatre to see Alice in Wonderland. My verdict? Totally not up to the hype. Was okay, but he was falling asleep.
For dinner we went out to... drumroll please...!
Sushi. Can you tell I'm an addict. Haha!
This is me after a successful sushi date. :)
By the way, have you checked out Epaisse yet? I've opened up a new livejournal community. For more details visit the post before this.
Have a happy weekend!

Hello everyone. First of all I want to take the time to thank you all for following. Second, I know a lot of my reader base is from Livejournal so I want to dedicate this entry to my newly opened Livejournal community, Epaisse.
The concept is a lot similar to WIWT2 but plus size geared only. Of course, I love everyone who posts on WIWT2 and I wouldn't want to alienate people from posting there. I'm just stating as an alternative for those who are uncomfortable posting there and would like a plus size community on livejournal that is more constructive criticism and "quality outfits" instead of stuff just thrown on and praises given by the bucket. Therefore I started this community. Hopefully it will grow, but please help spread the word! A blog post or link will be appreciated.
Join! I want to get this community up and running. Thank you all so much!

Hello guys! I asked on Twitter and on Facebook if I should get a fringe haircut, well here it is. It's messy because of the gusting wind but I love it. My hair feels lighter.. but the only problem is now I'll actually have to use a straightener now, haha! Anyway. I'm at my dads house but going back to my permanent residence soon.
Shirt Thrifted | Camisole Some store from the mall in North Dakota | Skirt eBay | Shoes Thrifted | Rosary Aldo
The challenge with my dads house is I have a separate wardrobe there. I live at my dads for a period of time then live with my mom another period of time. Anyway, the problem is that I have a limited wardrobe so I make do with what I have. I'm pretty happy about it!
Today was an exhausting day to say the least. :( We drove out of town to pick up a darned video game my boyfriend wanted, haha! I'm also suffering from migraines for the past week. It's getting slightly better. Let's hope it stays that way..
