Some past outfits from when the weather was more decent. I've definitely decided that cold, but sunny is much preferable to the current rain.  Today I watched the craziness that was Sandy on the news.  It's devastating to see the extent of the damage, even in the heart of New York City.  I'm not religious so I can't really say I send prayers to all those affected, but I definitely hope that power is restored soon and people make it through intact.

Sorry for the super dark photo in the last shot.  What with the sun setting earlier and earlier, I'm finding it harder to take outfit photos!  This past week I was out of town for a work conference, which made it really hard to take outfit photos, but luckily I've been really lazy and can post up these previous weeks photos.  FYI, Travelodges have TERRIBLE lighting.  It's really too bad because I was actually wearing nice business casual outfits those days, but somehow I doubt either my fellow conference attendees or my coworkers would have found it very cool to take an outfit photo.  Narcissistic much?  Once again, I wish I could pack a photographer boyfriend into my suitcase for travel ;)

In other news, if you're looking for a super last minute halloween costume, I highly recommend checking out BuyCostumes.com.  Not only do they have a humongous collection ranging from cute to skanky (including these adorable fairy costumes) for men and women, they are also offering express FREE shipping and 10% off right now!  I got mine off the site and it arrived very promptly and fit perfectly.  Be sure to carefully read the costume reviews on fit and length as it definitely helped me choose an appropriate fit.  What are you hoping to dress up as for Halloween?

Argh I am feeling a major blogging block lately.  I'm not even sure if I can blame it on summer anymore as the weather is slowly becoming more fall-like.  I have a major backlog of post ideas, but just no motivation to write them, or anything at all.  Perhaps I should put that on my birthday list this year?  Lately I'd rather do a million other things than blogging, but the idea of not blogging at all still scares me.  It's quite sad, but I find being a blogger to partly define who I am!

Anyways, enough about me and my #firstworldproblems, there's a winner announcement I have to make!  I am floored by the number of entries on this little giveaway of mine - 134 in all!  Thank you to everyone who entered.  As cheesy as it sounds, I wish we could all win (including myself).  The final winner though is...


Please check your email Shaimaa and reply back to claim your prize!  If you do not claim it within 24 hours of notice, then the prize is up for grabs again!

All apologies...

I've been MIA again. True, it's only been 5 days, but I still feel guilty for not working away at the ever-growing queue for post ideas that I have! I recently took this personality test for work called Strengths Finder, where it determines what your top 5 strengths are, in order for you to focus on improving them and excel in life.  Sooo apparently my strengths basically imply something I've known all my life: I'm a keener Asian student.  My results said that I love to learn and that I am constantly trying to work harder. How lame am I???? So, that's why I feel this really unnecessary guilt for not updating! I'm sick, I tell you!

Anyways, the reason why I have slacked on updating here is because I've been busy elsewhere, doing things like attending the Kimbra and Dragonette (pictured above) concerts and interviewing the band!  I've also been attending a little thing known as the Vancouver International Film Festival.  Don't worry, things will settle down to their normal routine soon and then I'll be back to blogging about Youtube videos.
