Review: There’s Lead in Your Lipstick by Gillian Deacon (+ giveaway!)

As part of the Gillian Deacon/Penguin Canada blog tour for Deacon’s book There’s Lead in Your Lipstick, I had the privilege of reviewing the book as well as offer up a contest for my blog for the first time! (Even more excited that my assigned date – today – falls on my birthday! :cool:) It’s truly amazing […]

116/365: Top 10 Tuesday

Ooh, this week’s Top 10 Tuesday from The Broke and the Bookish is Top Ten Mean Girls In Books (all those snotty, annoying girls that you just want to punch 😛 ) LOL!! Love it. Dolores Umbridge – Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling <– Not a girl but I have never wanted […]

113/365: Weekly Photo Challenge – One

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge theme is One. I was so excited because I had the exact picture in mind that I wanted to use, and it’s actually one of my favourite shots that I’ve taken and had been waiting for an appropriate theme to use it on! This was taken at my old […]

Review: Pretty Little Liars #1 & 2 by Sara Shepard

I finished the first two books in this series by Sara Shepard and am intrigued enough to keep reading a few more. You know the saying “don’t judge a book by its cover”? I don’t judge a book by its cover but it definitely is what pulls me in initially. Little did I know what […]

109/365: Top 10 Tuesday

This week’s Top 10 Topic from The Broke and the Bookish is a rewind… to do one of the past topics that you didn’t do yet! I decided to pick Top 10 Books to Read in 2011. Especially with my 50 Book Challenge on GoodReads, this will help me sort out the ones I definitely […]

106/365: Weekly Photo Challenge – Lines

Been out all day today so I’ll make this a quick entry and just do the photo challenge! This week’s Daily Post weekly photo challenge theme is: Lines. I took this shot at our temporary home a month ago, of one of the heating vents. I could see it while sitting in bed reading and […]

104/365: The Titanic: a night to remember…

April 14, 1912  – 99 years ago today – the Titanic sank into the Atlantic ocean after hitting an iceberg at 11:40pm. Like natural disasters, I’ve always been fascinated with the story of the Titanic. Admittedly a lot of it started from the 1997 James Cameron movie (of which I was completely obsessed with at […]

102/365: Top 10 Tuesday

Today’s Top 10 Tuesday is an interesting one… Top Ten Books You Want To See Made Into a Movie (brought to you by The Broke and the Bookish) It’s a toughie because so many have been interpreted into a movie nowadays… I could make this list now and by the end of the year, some […]

97/365: Cross-stitching

Ever since I was young, I loved all kinds of crafts. Probably since my teens, I’ve loved cross-stitching. My mom’s house is filled with pieces I’ve made & framed. I love buying the magazines in stores with the cute/cool designs to make (rather than the ready-made packages). Probably my pièce de résistance (pictured) is the […]

92/365: Weekly Photo Challenge – Light

I know I just posted my picture from the Weekly Photo Challenge the other day, but today is part 2 (and hopefully final part) of the big move… so obviously, won’t have time to write a proper post. This week’s Daily Post photo challenge theme is: Light I actually had quite a few in mind […]
