Since it was a casual day I just wore the outfit below. I paired my neon pink Aritzia polo with Dynamite skinnies and a vintage locket (with a picture of my cat inside!). I've heard girls say that after they cut their hair very short they dress more feminine to balance it out but I'm sorta going in the other direction. Gender rebellion, uh oh.. just kidding, just kidding. But I do find that I'm opting for skinnies (I don't like flared pants very much) with a gender neutral shirt. Possibly getting a mohawk, button up shirts and plain denim? Oh yeah, I'm so butch.

So I tried to dye my hair a light/medium brown to attempt to bring it back to my natural colour and it could all grow out together but then....
Yeah. Came out way darker than I had anticipated (btw that's homemade Christmas chocolate in my hand). I like it but I got scared because when my hair was wet it was black. Literally. Anyways, I'm still seriously debating the mini-mohawk thing but if I do it won't be until the New Year.
I also finished all my Christmas shopping today -except for two friends- and am now just relaxing. I also applied to university yesterday!! HOW CRAZY IS THAAAAT?! My sister helped because I kept getting confused and at the end she patted my head and said "you're all grown up." The only part that was truly horrible was that I found out that two of the six universities that offer my program (concurrent education) require university level math in grade twelve. Am I taking it? No. Did my guidance councellor say I don't need it? Yes. Did she LIE to me? Yes. SOOO I had a mini break down aka I thought I had no future and bawled but it's ok!! It all worked out hahaha. Oooh man that was scary though, no joke.
Incase I don't post before Christmas, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday filled with laughter, family and love. Merry Christmas, everyone.

First: google (think I've shown you...) Reconsidering cutting my hair like this.
Second: cobra snake
Third: cannot remember! Love the bodychain, anyone know who it's made by?
Fourth: Scene Kids Gore on photobucket. Love the face piece, so eery.
It lasts until New Year's so check it out! Here are just a few of their amazing pieces:

I'm also going to start applying to Universities this weekend; scary thought. This first semester went by so fast (probably because 99% of it was all good stuff going on) and I just cannot believe that I'm almost a young adult. Seems so... impossible. I mean, real responsibilities? Uh oh.
And speaking of universities, have any of you started applying? If yes, to where and for what? Also, for those of you fellow Canadians, you get to apply to 3 "in province" universities for free and then start paying after that, right? Because something different happened to my friend and now we're very confused.

Remember that semi-sheer tshirt I told you about a couple posts back? This is it! Suuuuper comfy!
Alright, it's almost 11pm and I work tomorrow at 8:30am, I should probably go to bed. I'm not even close to being tired though. Oh well.
Final thing (I swear!): I've gotten some new followers and readers as of late and I just wanted to say thank you! I really appreciate everyone, new or old readers, taking the time to visit my blog. It means so much to me. Thank you a million times over.

Anyways, onto a less awkward and embarrassing story, these socks! They're actually my rugby socks from grade nine. Yes, once upon a time I played sports! There's a hole in the back of the right one but *shhh* it's not that noticeable... Also, I've never done the "knee/thigh high socks" thing so I gave it a whirl. Not only did it keep my toes warm but I got positive feedback from classmates about the look. I'm glad, you might see it in the future (that is, if it doesn't become -20 degrees like predicted).
This is for all you hotties out there:

Their classic skull for $110:
Also, I got this cardigan at the new Zara in my town. It's not as great as the one in Toronto but I'm not willing to go that far (4 1/2 hour drive haha). Still, a Zara is a Zara. Too bad their shoes don't fit me...
This past Sunday I went to a family dinner and had a great time. I wore skinny jeans and a new semi-sheer black baggy tee with a graphic on the front (shall show you soon!) and a cardigan. I got to see my cousin, Alexander, who is five and all of a sudden talkative! He's so adorable. All in all, it was a great night. Squash pie with a brown sugar caramelized top (like creme brulee!!), grammee's stuffing made with potatoes, cream soda in a fancy glass - what more could I ask for?
Have any of you started holiday gatherings? Wish lists? What are your plans, if any?

And we'll march along with our blindfolds on,
and we'll ride the rails with our pistols drawn.
Kept alive with doubts of what we've done,
can we fight to save our souls?

We've got mounds of snow, I'm wearing layers and it's not horrible. I'm not much of a layering person, I prefer simpler outfits, but it's not so horrid, hahaha.
A picture taken outside my window for a "snow shot." This isn't even that much snow for us:

Also, Hannukah starts tomorrow so if I have any Jewish readers, have a happy Hannukah!

On another note, these are the shoes I wore to my work Christmas party. They're a size ten so I'm pretty happy about that, makes me feel as though my feet are somewhat small. And do you guys remember me telling you I went to this super-amazingly-awesome thrift store with my dad? This is yet another jacket from there (I got 3) and I love it. It's so comfortable. It's built like a long blazer, has the thickness of a thin sweater and feels like a blanket. Sooo good.
(thrifted blazer, garage dress -ugh I know, so preteen cool- aa leggings, le chateau heels)
Lastly, my friend Anna (who takes my pictures 98% of the time) thought it would be cute to do a "Holiday Fashion Shoot." So be prepared that by next week until the end of December, sometime I will post pictures of that event. There will be colour, skin and snow... that's all we've got so far HAHAHAHA!
Hope you all are having a great week!
