A round up of cute animal videos!

Sorry I have been MIA for the last few days. My goal was to post everyday but the course I am taking online this summer has kept me busy for a few days. Enjoy these awesome animal videos!

Little worlds in tiny bottles

These are just too cool. Every time I see unique art work like this, it makes me want to learn how to do it! I would also love to have these up on a bookshelf.

House sitting = watching favourite girly movies

I have been house sitting for the past couple of weeks. I filled up a bag with my favourite movies and brought them with me to pass the time. Yesterday and today I had one of my girl friends over and we watched some of my all all-time favourite girly movies. Sometimes it's wonderful to watch a happy sappy movie (or many) especially ones that make you cry at the end. I really need to make more time for myself for some movie watching. I have so many great movies that I have not seen in years and these past couple of days have reminded how much I enjoy movie watching.

Movies I watched:

Beautiful quotation

"I must learn to love the fool in me--the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool." -- Theodore I. Rubin, MD

A new guilty pleasure

I must admit that I am very addicted to GeekBeat's blog (http://geekbeat.tv) and their YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/geekbeattv). They post blog articles and videos about new gadgets. Being a bit of a tech geek, I am loving this very much.


Bye Bye, Sam?

It looks like Chord Overstreet (Sam from Glee) might not be back for season 3. He is the only cast member who has not signed the contract for the whole season. He was one of my favourite new additions to last season and I'm really hoping that he will be back.

A favorite dessert

My weekend dessert: rum balls. I absolutely love them. They are especially great for a chocolate craving! I am on the search for the perfect recipe so that I can attempt to make my own. Delicious!

What are animals thinking...

...when they stare at you while you sleep?


Marc Jacobs bag, I love you!

I have had my eye on this purse for a looooong time. I've seen it in movies and magazines and I've always wanted one. In celebration of my new permanent teaching position I got this as a little gift to myself.

Twinkle twinkle little star

Those of you who know me know that I love stars. After a search for the perfect star pendant (which I found last year) I decided to look for a nice star ring this year. I came across this stainless steel star ring on amazon.com (my new favourite place to shop).

I also really loved this pendant:

It says: Learn from yesterday. Live for today. Hope for tomorrow. Laugh as much as you breathe. Love as long as you live. Live Love Laugh

These pieces are an end of the school year gift to myself from myself. Both together cost me under $40!!

Ring finger nail polish trend

I've recently noticed a new nail polish trend. A girl helping me out at a clothing store a few weeks ago had all her fingernails painted one colour except for her ring finger. I didn't think much of it. I actually thought that she may have been sampling a new nail polish colour and had forgotten to fix her nails up. But I have started to notice this trend more often in the past few weeks. Cute or tacky? I have yet to decide.
