    Ladies, what are you doing this evening?

    Working a split shift today at the restaurant. I'll probably get off around 9 P.M. Looking forward to making chicken tacos when I get home and working on some watercolour illustrations. I'll go for a nighttime run if it doesn't storm out.

    What Are You Reading

    Moby Dick by Herman Melville. It's my first post-grad read and I have to say, I picked a good one.

    Comments You Get When You Dress Vintage

    I've had a mixed bag of responses. I'm either asked where I'm going (they assume a casting call, play, or theme party), or asked why I'm so dressed up. People are usually more curious than critical. In fact, I've had a lot of compliments on my clothing and hair. A lot of girls on campus have...

    High Waisted Pants & Jeans!

    I own two pairs of high waisted Levi's. The first is a high waisted dark wash denim with a skinny leg. They're definitely more modern looking but look vintage-esque rolled up at the cuff with a shirt tied at the waist. I also own a vintage wide-legged pair that remind me of the time when women...

    How many colors have you dyed your hair?

    Too many! Originally a mousy brown, I first got highlights when I was 12, dyed my hair blonde when I was around 13, black when I was 15, dark chestnut brown when I was 16, and then red when I was 17. I loved the red but the cost and time of upkeep was too much. It looked brassy really fast. I...

    do you wash your hair everyday?

    I shower every other day. I use a volumizing shampoo and moisturizing conditioner that do the trick. My hair is wavy and thick and doesn't get too dirty, but I usually always use a powder dry shampoo from Lush between washes. It keeps my hair oil-free and makes styling updos a lot easier. Doing...

    cigarette holders question for the ladies

    I've been collecting antique and vintage tobacco pipes since I inherited my grandfather's years ago. I sometimes smoke out of them but not enough to consider myself a smoker; usually only a couple of times a year on special occasions. I branched out and bought a cigarette holder when I was...

    Are dresses coming back in style?

    In my opinion, dresses never went out of style. At least not in my part of the world. I'm from western Canada and I see girls wearing dresses year round, though they're definitely more plentiful in the spring and summertime (Canadian winters are bitterly cold and sometimes wool tights don't cut...

    Ladies, what are you doing this evening?

    After a week of being out past midnight every night, I've decided to spend this Saturday evening in. I had a tiring (but fun) day filled with work and canoeing, and am now lying in bed watching Nowhere Boy and eating sweet cherries and dark chocolate chips.

    How do you keep your house neat?

    Tidiness is definitely something I need to get a better handle on. Neither my mother nor my father were big cleaners and the house was always in some sort of disarray – save for when we had company come over, in which case the house would be spotless exactly until the time they left. Needless to...

    What is your favorite red lipstick brand/shade?

    I used to be a dedicated Ruby Woo user, but have recently branched out to other lipsticks by MAC. Viva Glam I has become my new go-to red, as it's more subtle and less bright than Ruby Woo, making it more wearable for daytime.

Quite a few of these are new to...

    Everyday Women of the Golden Era

    Here's a shot of my great-grandmother in Newfoundland, Canada, in 1921. The shoes on her shoulder belong to my great-grandfather, haha! My grandmother, her twin sister, and family, all dressed up for Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953. My grandmother's wedding day, date...

    What vintage won't you wear?

    I can't do shoulder pads. One of the first vintage dresses I ever purchased had huge shoulder pads, and I promptly cut them out because they made me look like a linebacker. They didn't go to waste, though -- I use them as bra inserts whenever I feel I need a little boost. :o Hats are something...

    Show us your hair do's....

    I used foam rollers. I'm still intimidated by pin curls!

    Show us your hair do's....

    Knicked this from my instagram account. I was really pleased with the way my set turned out that day. Unfortunately, it was snowing and the cold weather ruined my hair.

    What makeup are you wearing today?

    I picked up a BB creme by Maybelline in the lightest shade they had. I really like it! It's great for moisturizing my skin, evening out my skin tone, and as I am obsessed with anti-aging I love that it's SPF 30 too! It's the only foundation-type product I've used that doesn't break me out. I...

    Help!!! Long hair problems

    I'm experiencing the same problem as you, even if my hair isn't nearly as long as yours! Mine's a little bit past mid-back, thick, and naturally curly/wavy. My friends and family fawn over my hair and are horrified at the prospect of my cutting it. My boyfriend is especially against the idea. He...

    What motivates you to do your beauty everyday? Lately I cant find any motivation!

    I typically invest a fair chunk of time and care into my appearance, but that hasn't been the case these past two months. Stress from family and relationship problems and final exams and essays really brought me down - my daily uniform went from dresses and pin curls to black leggings, baggy...

    What's For Breakfast...

    Stovetop oatmeal topped with a sliced banana, shredded coconut, and oodles of cinnamon. It's -20 C with heavy snow today so I thought I'd make something tropical, try to lighten the mood. I also had about three cups of dark roast coffee. Caffeine is both my ally and my nemesis.
