WORKHALL BOUTIQUE:

#102 10137 104St NW
EDMONTON, CANADA

Opening only two months ago, Workhall has quickly become one of my favourite stores. Located downtown Edmonton, Workhall carries local labels from Amor Jewellery and Campre by Nicole Campre. The focus of the space is to promote local brands and to "inspire the everyday public and where everyone can shop at, that carries all local brands.” (Nicole Campre: http://blogs.edmontonjournal.com/2013/11/19/workhall-where-edmonton-designers-get-to-work/) I have had the beautiful opportunity to work first hand with Nicole and her team, and they are the most hardworking and gracious people. Working with these people they have taught and opened my eyes to a whole different world, unheard of before- especially in Edmonton  They take their work with care and love, Nicole also designed and made my grad dress last year. Nothing but good things for these ladies.

Revolting The Days

NARS BRONZER
NARS LAGUNA BRONZER
DIOR VERNIS NAIL LACQUER | PURPLE REVOLUTION 
MAN REPELLER - LEANDRA MEDINE 

MARC JACOBS | DOT ROLLERBALL


1. NARS LAGUNA BRONZER: 
Yes, I do realize I just bought the duo of this last week- but it's just so pretty that I needed it all by itself. Please don't judge, you would do the same- I think.

2. DIOR VERNIS NAIL LACQUER | PURPLE REVOLUTION:
Great finish. Great formula. Great nail polish. THANKS OBAMA (really, thank you.)

3. MAN REPELLER - LEANDRA MEDINE:
Leandra Medine. This women, is my ideal person. She is witty, smart, hilarious, and she's the kind of person you want to drink expensive lattes whilst eating bread and cheese. 
Check out this book, whilst you're doing that: here's her blog http://www.manrepeller.com

4. DOT ROLLERBALL - MARC JACOBS: 
After buying the Daisy rollerball, there was a hole in my soul from the lack of smell of Dot.
The hole has been filled, and damn- I smell good.

The weekend! We all made it.
Grab your favourite friends and enjoy the time you earned.

(I recommend season 3 for this week.)

Miles Upon Miles

DR MARTENS | VICTORIAN FLOWERS 1460 W



DR MARTENS:
These boots have been my save in grace for the past two years, they have been through it all- Canada's worst/best. Regardless of outfit, day, or the temperature of my coffee- I find myself ending up leaving the house with them on. I urge you all the treat your feet to these boots, your feet will be happy happy.

TIPS:
1. These do not stretch out, the sales associate lied to me: "of course, a full half size dear!" That bitch. But, it was not the end of the world. Choose true to your size, listen to your feet not the store's commission. 

2. Breaking these shoes in are probably the worst thing ever. You question everything you've been told about these boots been the best thing ever and blah blah blah. I can assure you- after two weeks of feet aches, blood, and tears- they are. Hope you make it through the end.

NARS BRONZE/BLUSH DUO
ORGASM BLUSH / LAGUNA BRONZER
HOURGLASS AMBIENT LIGHTING POWDER 
DIM LIGHT 
URBAN DECAY: LONG LASTING MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY
Is it only Wednesday?
A daunting Calculus assignment, English essay, Anthropology project coming it's way- I decided, for my own health/sanity, to have a mini shopping session.
Here are the results.

1. NARS: ORGASM/LAGUNA DUO
Why not get two of the best in one? I have fair skin, and it's hard to find bronzer that don't make me look like an Oompa Loompa- so, once I found Laguna I was hooked. And after the rave about Orgasm blush, why the fuck not- I thought.

2. HOURGLASS AMBIENT LIGHTING POWDER (DIM LIGHT):
Apparently this is suppose to produce a photoshop effect with "blurring imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones."
We'll seen.

3. URBAN DECAY: LONG LASTING MAKEUP SETTING SPRAY
If I am attempting to apply eyeliner and contour my goddamn face after 4 hours of sleep, it better stay on my face- for everybody's sake (bags bags bags bags.) So far, this has worked wonders- beside the fact I sprayed it directly into my eyes, not recommended.

Any suggestions?
Pray for me, I might not make it til Friday.

Also, my dear dear friend started out a blog.
Just click the link, he's a man who wears a suit: http://thingsofmonstrousbeauty.blogspot.ca

Young the Giant has released their first album in four years after their self titled debt album in 2010. And my god, it was worth the wait- THIS ALBUM IS AMAZING
Lyrically it is all woven beautifully together, and you're able to shut all the bullshit around you and got lost in the music. I am so excited to see them live in concert with Vance Joy in a couple months, tears of joy might have been shed. 

Treat yourself, buy this album.



“You deal with a lot of things on the road; you can get in your own head, or you drink a lot, or you forget the people that are around you. We started as a high school band, playing garages and little clubs and it’s important that we never lose sight of that.” -Sameer Gadhia

25 Things About Me

HEADBAND: DIY
NECKLACE: LOFT 82
SWEATER: LOFT 82
LIPS: NARS CRUELLA VELVET MATTE LIP CRAYON

1. Majority of my time I think about sleep, food, and clothes. 
   The life I lead.

2. My obsessions include: water bottles, eyebrows, candles, and lipsticks. 

3. I have a slight problem with layering clothes, on a typical day I am wearing at least two/three shirts/dresses/skirts/cardigans. I HAVE A PROBLEM.

4. I love eyebrows and white teeth.

5. (500) Days of Summer is my Holy Bible.

6. I sing- a lot. Loudly and out of tune.

7. Joseph Gordan-Levitt is my idea of perfection, same applies to Finn Harries. 

8. Going to New York is always a good idea.

9. I can't wear jeans, I feel absolutely naked. But, wearing seven inch heels is no problem.

10. I love burgundy anything/everything.

11. I will eat all your cold leftovers.

12. I think I'm slightly deaf from listening to my music full blast.

13. During grade 3, I use to curl my upper lip whilst smiling thinking I was showing off more of my teeth. I was a special kid.

14. I am brutally honest towards other people, but am the most indecisive person for my personal decisions. Life's hard.

15. Whenever I am in New York, I have a Humans of New York hunt. So far, failed each time.

16. Coldplay everything, all day, all the time. Coldplay.

17. I have never owned a cellphone. Why? You'd have to ask my Asian parents, I still don't know the answer to this day.

18. I've never been to London, but I plan to drink aged wine and cheese everyday- soon. 

19. I'm probably on Tumblr, www.whatisemilywearing.tumblr.com 

20. All my clothes are too big, and showing off my body is completely foreign. 

21. Pizza everything (Panago's Chipotle Chicken, Jesus.)

22. Friends is the best (All 10 seasons.)

23. Canada Canada Canada Canada, my birthplace and all.

24. Highly cynical/sarcastic. 

25. I, most probably, have smeared lipstick.
