Going home tonight after work! So I can celebrate Canada Day properly back home in Ottawa. I am really beyond excited! I haven't seen Owen in two weeks, so I'm very quite excited to see him! And everyone else of course. I'm going to spend the long weekend in Ottawa, hopefully the weather is nice to go outside! On Sunday it's back to Toronto for 3 days to finish up my internship here at Judy Inc. It felt like it was going by so slowly, but it's already coming to an end! It was a great experience. I met really nice people, and learned a lot of great stuff. Either on Wednesday or Thursday next week, I head back to Ottawa! For two weeks, and THEN! I head out to BC to spend a week in Whistler, and to attend my cousins wedding. And then in August? Not quite sure yet...I have to move into my new apartment at some point! (I'll have photos of that once I've got some) and....ya....

There's going to be a reunion with Livvy in Whistleeerrrr!

[MUSIC] Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall - Coldplay

At first, I wasn't too sure about this song. Trust me, I am a HUGE Coldplay fan, mostly for their earlier stuff. I wasn't the biggest fan of their last album Viva la Vida, but from listening to the 3 new songs they've released, to me it sounds a little more like their old stuff, and I like it! This one took me some getting used to (not really, I only had to listen to it 3 times before I realized I loved it!) Enjoy :)

[FASHION] Lookbook

I just added a link for my Lookbook on the tabs bar up top. I haven't updated it in such a long time! But if you can take a look that would be lovely! I'm almost finished my internship, so hopefully once I'm back home I'll have more time to take some more full outfit shots.

Old photo, but it's the look I got the most "hype"s on...and I had bangs! I ended up loosing those sunglasses when I went to New York City with my mom two Easter's ago...

[BEAUTY] Nail Polish

Here is my collection of nail polish! I thought I had more...but apparently not...

[BEAUTY] Seflies

And so it was a seflie sort of afternoon, the type of afternoon when Emilie gets bored. I attempted to do this eye makeup...didn't work out so well because A) I don't have blue eyes so it would look silly anyway and B) I am not a pro makeup artist like this person clearly is. Boff whatevaaa
But now! My ultimate question I go to the gym? or not? Such a tough choice...I'll probably end up goiiiiing

Big Hair!

I'm at work...and it's quite humid outside! My hair is really big, I think it's funny hehe

[FASHION] Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012

Oooooook, someone posted a photo of this collection on Tumblr, and I just starred at it for a little bit. The shapes and the colours work so well together. I completely love it.....I also kind of have a girl crush on Cara Delevigne :$ hehe

[FASHION] Marc Jacobs in Drag

Quite frankly...he is working it and keeping it classy!

[BEAUTY] Knock Out Nail Polish

This has to be by far my favourite out of the oodles of nail polishes I own. It's neutral and so easy to apply. Best part? It's matte! Which is a neat twist.

Favourite Photo

I'm not sure why I like it so much. Maybe it's the lazy/relaxed body of the girl? The cat in the background? The wonderful round sunglasses? I don't know...but it really caught my eye and I think it all works really well.


In the end! I did get that dress for Aritzia I really liked! My mom loved it as well. It's a silk dress, and it's perfect for my cousin's wedding because it isn't overly formal. She's having a rather relaxed wedding (apparently her dress is teal? We'll see...)

Finally New Glasses (And a Hair Accessory)

I'd had the same pair of glasses for 5 years now, and I hated wearing them because they were too small for my head and they gave me headaches! Even though I only need glasses for anything up close like reading, or being on the computer, it's nice to have some that fit! Because wearing glasses causes a lot less strain on my eyes dontcha know. Anyway, I got a lovely lovely pair of dark tortoise shell Burberry glasses. I really love them!

They're a little bit more masculine, but maybe that's what I like about them? 

I also got this really cute hair accessory and felt the need to share hehe.

[OUTFIT] New Clothes

A lot of Canadians may think Aritzia is getting quite mainstream/hip...but meh I still love it! They sent out sort of invites to their regular customers, to got 20 to 40% selected items. I took this as an opportunity to get some new more summery clothes! I went with my mom....and we were there well over an hour. She kept finding things and insisted I tried them on! This is why I like shopping with my mom sometimes hehe. Anyway, this is what I ended getting!

The blazer has poor shape on a hanger, but when worn it fits perfectly!

So as you can see, I can easily mix and match everything! It all works together. I'm so happy with these purchases! Oooooh Aritzia, you never displease me!

[FASHION] Oscar de la Renta

I'm absolutely in LOVE with this photo! It's a sort of behind the scenes shot of Oscar de la Renta's Resort 2012 collection, and it is just so stunning.

Fathers Day Weekend

I was back home in Ottawa for Fathers Day! I had a really lovely weekend and the weather was fantastic! Friday night wasn't the greatest (a few too many drinks...) but I did get to see a lot of people I hadn't seen in a while! So that was nice. Saturday, I went shopping with my mom. I got a new blazer, silk shirt, shorts and t-shirt (I will post photos once I've got some) Then Saturday night, we went to my friend Talia's had some wine and such, and we checked out Italian Week on Preston. It was PACKED with people! I would have taken more photos, but it was already dark out, and it was absolutely crowded with people! Oh well....Then for Fathers Day, we went to this German restaurant on Preston. My mom and I shared a meat packed omelette, it was delicious!

All in all, very good weekend! I was able to take a later bus, so I even got to see Owen on Sunday before I headed back to Toronto :)

Gumby was the highlight of Saturday night haha

This is Talia!

[BEAUTY] Photoshoot

I went on set to a photoshoot last Friday, took some behind the scenes photos! It was neat to see all the set up and preparation. Here are some of the shots, you can check out some more on the judyink blog once it's posted. I will update once it is posted.

Weekend - Ottawa

I was in Ottawa this weekend, since it is Father's Day today, and my brother is away, I thought I'd pay my dad a visit. I had a really great weekend! I'll have photos of the photo shoot I went to on Friday to do some behind the scenes stuff, and photos from hanging with my friends. I catch the bus at 4:30 today to head back to Toronto. Only 2 weeks and a half left of my internship! I'm getting pretty excited to be back in Ottawa permanently for the rest of the summer.

[FASHION] Valerie Dumaine

OH! And Valerie Dumaine, I can't forget about her! I am a HUGE fan of hers! And I've walked for her in Ottawa Fashion Week (I know big deal right, but she is such a sweetheart!) Her spring/summer collection is so so lovely! And well...the model's hair is to die for!

[FASHION] Eve Gravel

I'm going through a bunch of Canadian designers at work right now, getting their contact information. I always forget how much talent Canada has! I stumbled upon Eve Gravel, whom I've never heard of before, and I really love her designs! And the shoot for her most recent collection for summer 2011 is absolutely beautiful! Here are a few looks

[MUSIC] The Fox by Niki and The Dove

I'm really hooked on this song!! It's a little bit slow at the beginning, but then it gets really awesome! Be sure to take a listen

[FASHION] Rebecca Minkoff - Resort 2012

The bold colours, like aqua and bright orange, the lovely lace, and the simple yet elegant shapes of Rebecca Minkoff's Resort 2012 collection are to die for! Her mix of big prints, luxurious lace, and even leather make for a very tasteful collection.

[DIY] It's T-shirt time!

So really appears I was quite bored this afternoon/evening. I had these two t-shirts in my closet that I'd bought to make something neat out of it. FINALLY I got around to it, and here's what I came up with tonight. There are still a few stitches I need to add in, but all I've got right now are sewing machine needles to sew with (really does not work well) and black that will have to wait a little!



I'm going to add a few stitches at the cuff of the sleeves to help keep them in place. But ya! I think it turned out pretty neat looking.
