Flag of Alberta Cake

Alberta Cake

One of my boyfriend’s good friends was moving to Edmonton and had a going away party on Saturday.  Since I’m always looking for an excuse to make a cake, I decided to make a cake for the party. The cake is of the flag of Alberta, which seemed fitting because he and his girlfriend were…

Eulogy.

Yesterday I got the unfortunate news that a classmate, peer and friend had died in the OC Transpo/Via Rail accident that happened on Wednesday.  I’ve spent the past day and a half feeling every single stage of the Kubler-Ross model at different points.  More or less, this is how I’ve felt: 1. Denial For the…

Layout 4 (Sept. 2013 - Aug. 2014)

Redesign. Redefine.

Ahh it’s been a while.  How are you all? Did you miss me? My last post was 4 months ago. I don’t really have a reason for that other than laziness.  But I thought now was a better time than ever to give an update. The topic of this post is going to be about…

The beautiful low-poly shoe created for United Nude''s Lo Res project

This shoe is everything my life is about.

I don’t think it comes as a surprise that fashion is a huge interest of mine.  And naturally, as a student in interactive multimedia, I also have a huge interest in technology.  Wearable technology is something that you would think interests me, but I RARELY see technology and fashion melding into something that’s actually worth…

A Rant about “Fashion”

Not too long ago a Buzzfeed article came out giving 23 reasons why leggings are the worst.  I’m not gonna go out and say “DIS ARTICLE IZ ALL ZE WRONGZ!!!!!!!!” (because I do own a crap ton of leggings), but in my opinion this article seems to ignore what fashion is really all about: confidence and…

“it burns like the surface of the sun”

One of the things I wanted to do during Reading Week was do more typography pieces.  Of course that didn’t happen because no one ever actually does anything worthwhile during this week off (thus why I complete HATE the fact Carleton has a Fall Reading Week now >.< ). That being said, with today being…

Prescription Aviator Sunglasses from Clearly Contacts

First Impressions: ClearlyContacts.ca

I’ve been plagued with near-sightedness since I was in 2nd grade.  I don’t really know what life without wearing glasses is like (which probably is the reason why I don’t like the way I look without glasses). Because I’ve pretty much lived my whole life with glasses, I never really had a chance to wear…

Southern Air by Yellowcard

Southern Air

The last month or so I’ve been listening to a lot of Yellowcard lately.  They’re one of the few bands from my youth where I still get excited over their new releases. Southern Air is their latest release.  It came out in August of 2012, but for some reason only just now is it really…

Android and the Nexus 4

Android’s New Friend

A few days ago I finally was able to get my hands on my own Google Nexus 4.  I’ve wanted this phone since it first came out, but the fact it was constantly sold out (and I lacked funds) always stopped me.  But when it went back on sale last week I jumped on the…
