Random Tuesday thoughts

Agh! I don’t have any blog posts planned out for the week, so I’m sitting down here this morning going to tell you all about my week and last night.

I bought a bunch of stuff at Ikea last week when my boyf was in the states for a few races. I had to retrieve him the other night 50 minutes away and get on three highways in total. I’m telling ya, I’m becoming the real slick driver here in Ontario. I guess the GPS had something to do with it too. Coming up in July I have to renew my license, and get a new picture taken. Also probably shop around at the same time for auto insurance quotes burlington nc.

lemon-pepper-chicken-stirfr I made this for supper last night.

11-bucks-groceriesOut of the $10.89 I spent on  groceries last night. Maple leaf coupons totally had something to do with it ;)

Last night he put one of the two items together, a bookcase for myself in the bedroom. I had planned on using it for just shoes, but it’s sort of smaller than I anticipated. It’s tall, with 8 cubbies, but not sure if all my shoes will fit. We also had a debate as to whether or not it should stand up straight (his idea) or lay horizontally to make it look much “cooler” (I always have the cool ideas). We finally decided on having it vertical just because it won’t use up so much floor space.

I’m counting down the sleeps until I head home to Newfoundland. It’s just me going home on this trip, so I’ve been planning out meals for the Boyf while I’m away. Cooking in advance and all that sweet girlfriend stuff.

I’m wearing a maxi dress today. Want to see? Not sure what I think about it, but I’m wearin it!

Oh! I filmed another YouTube video. Watch it if you want:

Sock bun tutorial

Dude. You guys.

I mastered the sock bun. I’ve seen it on YouTube for the past year or so, and I’ve just never tried it because I thought I didn’t have enough hair to cover the bun, or that it wouldn’t work in my hair. Don’t be fooled. You can do it too.

Boy oh boy! It looks great and I’ve been wearing it like this a few times per week. It’s so easy, and it’s so put together.

I ended up filming a tutorial on how to do it. It’s just three minutes long, and it’s mostly me rambling on. It’s honestly really quick. See?

I was even feeling so daring that evening, when I first learned how to do it — that I started playing with other styles. I tried french braiding my hair and it was really difficult because my hair is silky (jealous? lol) and hard to work with. Maybe I need second-day hair and a little more texture in order to keep my hair in place.

A lil’ grease won’t hurt, if ya know what I mean.

Are you adventurous with your hair? I rarely do any changes to mine. Pony tail, or straight down. But now I’ve got options, ha!

Please come back to my blog in the morning. I may have a little surprise :)

For now I’ll leave you with my late outfit of the work week. Boyfriend and I went out skating in Uptown to a free local (small) skate rink outside. DJ’s were playing some pretty upbeat house music, totally my style. Loved it all. Skating wears you out though! Moses.

Catch me over on YouTube tonight….and have a great Friday!
