My new desk setup

2013: Seize the Year

I mentioned a few blog posts ago that my goal for 2013 (not resolution, goal) was to be busier.  Which pretty much boils down to being more productive.  So, how do I get more productive? I’ve wanted to get a new desk for about two years now, and on Monday I finally bit the bullet and…

Black Milk Clothing Collection

Knowing the meaning of expensive taste

Today I decided to take a picture of my Black Milk Clothing collection that has been growing quite a bit since my first purchase in August. I’ve had a lot of people ask me  “how can you afford that?” or “why do you spend that much on clothing?” The answer to that is kind of…

Hockey when there’s a lockout

I will be the first to admit that I have been incredibly apathetic when it comes to the NHL Lockout.  I hate that there’s no NHL hockey being played, but at the same time I haven’t been a fan of the NHL for a while.  I love the Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers, and there…

From Concept to Code in One Day

Being back in my hometown leaves me with not much to do.  So I figured this would be a good time to FINALLY update my blog layout.  The old layout was over a year old, and I really needed to update the overly busy layout. I had been working on a few concepts while over…

Happy New Year!

Oh personal blog…how I’ve neglected you. The past two months, when my blogging didn’t exist, hasn’t exactly been stressful or busy.  My lack of blogging really has no excuse, but the time away gave me some time to reflect. 2012 was a life-changing time for me. Not really because exciting things happened, but more because…

Muppets Animal Birthday Cake

Animal (Muppets) Birthday Cake

One of my very first posts on this blog was a picture of the birthday cake I made for my boyfriend.  It was the classic Mass Effect N7 cake that’s since been posted all over the internet.  Well, it’s been roughly a year again, so here’s the birthday cake I made for my boyfriend this…

Package Design Project

Back to Design

When I signed up for the Bachelor of Information Technology – Interactive Multimedia & Design program, I did it with the intention of becoming a graphic designer in the hockey industry (A layout designer for The Hockey News was my dream job at 18). A lot has changed since then.  There weren’t that many graphic design…

My shoe collection (September 20, 2012)

Shoe Collection!

A few days ago my mom sent me over two pairs of superawesome Zara shoes from Europe, which made me think it was a pretty good time to take a picture of my shoe collection.  I’m officially “that girl,” you know, the one who is know for their footwear. Personally, I’m cool with this. Don’t…

End of an Internship

On Tuesday my time as a Shopify intern ended.  Because I look for any excuse to make a cake (and because I made a cake for my first day at Shopify), I decided to bake one for my last day:  Twas just a regular chocolate cake with vanilla icing/fondant.  I was surprised at how quickly…
