My Purchases


Talula Bustier Dress $24.99TNA tank $9.99Wilfred Bustier tank $14.99


I got there this morning around 9:20 am and there was no line-up! There was no line-up when I left either around 10:30am. The sale was disappointing to say the least.  I’m not sure if it was because it’s day two of the infamous sale but there were very, very few desirable items left. It’s a large venue, and there are racks and racks of clothes but sizes and styles have been thrown everywhere by shoppers. The sale prices weren’t much lower than “You Snooze You Loose” Aritzia Sales. Clothes were still expensive and probably now damaged because of the hectic environment (fall on the floor, stepped on, hangers caught in sweaters pulling threads lose, etc.).

Some Items I saw

TNA Ragan Sweaters – Wilfred Free Sweaters ($59.99)


1. few of these in Large (not sure of prices or name)        2. Sabine Dress $74.99               3. A lot of these dresses in Prints ($?)


Talula Fruit Bustiers (lots of them) – Talula Babaton Fielding Blazer ($99)

TNA hoodies – White olympics hoodie with Aboriginal Art design, Grey hoodie (a few), Neon pink hoodies (Two racks full!)

Long Trench Coats in a Camel colour ($149.99) - Wilfred Franca Dress ($74.99)

These are a few of the items but keep in mind there are hundreds of other items from previous seasons and years and most of them are just not worth buying at all. I’m really glad I didn’t have to line up for the sale because it would just have been the biggest disappointment.

the Sale is

1. Messy stuff is on racks everywhere and it is quite crowded.

2. Carries lots of certain items – such as Neon TNA hoodies and black TNA backpacks with different coloured neon TNA writing all over then

3. Crowded changing tent – you have to fight for a space infront of a mirror, it’s a lot easier to change outside with a friend to take a photo of you trying on each item and then looking through the photos to decided what you want. A plus for being inside the tend is that you get to search through other people’s rejects which are usually better items then are outside.

4. Lots of cashiers – almost no lineup to pay.

The Last Days of Summer

Photos from going to Yaletown last week with my friend. It’s such a beautiful area. There were even people surfing! Well not really, more like traveling on surfboards because we don’t get any crazy waves in Vancouver. The girl in the last photo is my friend.

I can’t believe that classes are 8 days away. Two months passed quick! It’s been a great summer, one of the best.

Late night sushi


Went out to see Ted yesterday with some friends and we went to all you can eat sushi afterwards. Thought it’d be a good opportunity to test out more food pics with my new Canon.  These are what the photos look like after photoshoping them slightly. 




Guess who has a new toy? Specifically the Canon Rebel T3i 60D DSLR. I’m not a camera buff so I can’t tell if it’s better than other DSLR’s on the market but in the 48 hours that it’s now been mine, I’m satisfied so far. This is the same camera that Charlie McDonnell (aka Charlieissocoollike) uses. One of the main features that the sales associate pitched to me was it’s ability to record in 1080p HD. Potential youtube videos? Definitely…a maybe.    

Sample Photos (no photoshop) 


                             1. Sunset at Spanish Banks Beach – amazing view, hell to get to by public transit.                           
                      Two words – steep hills, very, very steep hills                         

2. Burger made on at a BBQ with some friends on Friday

3. Flower close-up – testing out nature shots

4. Revlon Lip Butter – Lots of product reviews to come!
