Party Planning Committee

Recently we had a birthday party for my roommate, now it wasn’t our first party at our apartment, but it was our first *themed* party. There are different levels of effort involved, definitely more so with a themed party. The birthday girl wanted a Luau beach themed party, and thats what she received. If you’ve …

Advice to My 23 Year Old Self…or Anyone

A friend requested I write about what advice I would have given to my slightly younger self (yes, I can take requests!). This is an accumulation of some of my experiences, and trust me, I’m sure I could write another one of these in about a year. Instagram Is Not Real Life Falling into the …

Bawling for Bald

Ever since I can remember I’ve hated hair cuts. Growing up, every time my crush would get a haircut immediately my crush was cut short, over, done, see you never. And for the past four years I haven’t had to worry about that, my BF has had the same hair style and I have always …

Dirty Girls

Months back my Mom and sister committed to an all girls mud run, and usually this is something I would completely tear apart, but I decided to join them. Of course me joining them was infinitely more for the fear of missing out on a bonding experience that my mom and sister would have without …

Life with an (Un)Fashionable BF

I am very lucky to be in a happy relationship with my best friend (although he refuses to call me his). He is thoughtful, kind, funny (mostly to himself), generous and very personable. He is also fashionable, for the most part. Not to say that I am the biggest fashion guru on the planet, but …

The Rebirth of Rapunzel’s Reality

I originally started this blog because I needed to create something, in a time where I felt that I had nothing particularly special happening in my life. I mainly shared the misfortunate happenings that seemed to continuously occur to myself—a young, single and naive girl living in the city. Fast-forward to four years later, I’d …

White Girl VS The Cleanse

As soon as we get the first sunny day of the year, everyone is faced with the inevitable question, am I beach body ready? Now, if your anything like me, Netflix is your boyfriend and pasty skin is your theme. Spring happens to be my least favourite season, its where I'm forced to deal with …

Satan’s Spawn is my Roommate

In honour of my first Throwback Thursday, I thought I would entertain you all with a topic that everyone deals with, Roommate Drama. Now everyone has their own issues with roommates while living in student housing, but I thought mine is pretty unique and well RIDICULOUS. The story begins at the beginning of last summer, …

Get me OUT of Here

As previously mentioned in my last post, I was invited back for a second interview the following day. Originally I thought I had applied for a receptionist job at a marketing firm, and it ended up being a sales position for a marketing company. Due to my current state of unemployment, I thought I was …

Interview 2.0

Yesterday I went on my second interview of my summer job hunt. Usually I'd like to think I'm prepared physically and mentally, geographically on the other hand is my issue. I arrive early as all professional young know-it-all's do, and I decide not to regard the name of the building I'm entering. For fifteen minutes …
