Today I am not going to go shopping, because at this point I am physically and financially exhausted from it. Instead I'm going to stay home and read with this song in my head, and be excited for The City.

I always seem to get into color or pattern moods, and this week as I've been to almost every boxing day sale in the city, I keep getting pulled in by lilac colored things. Maybe it's the springy freshness that I like.

I really regret not bringing my camera with me now, because coming home this time feels different than before. I was really itching to leave Ottawa, and now that I've been away at school for a year, seeing it with new eyes has made me realize how much I love this city.

I'm not someone who plays video games often, but I always get excited for the Rayman spinoff games of the characters Raving Rabbids. They are the cutest villains ever. Now that I'm home with access to a Nintendo Wii, my very knowledgeable little brother and I are going to rent the newest one, Rayman Raving Rabbids TV Party.

They may be loud, but they live in a very pretty apartment!

I finished all our shopping and wrapping last night with Mom. We usually try and make it fun by having a good snack with it or movie.

I love this book so much, I've looked at it before at Chapters and finally found somebody to give it to. I picked it up for my fashion major friend and her new baby sister.

Time to go home for Christmas! I have the December issue of Domino to save for the plane, but this beautiful room caught my eye.

Before I go and spend X number of hours in the darkroom...
this story

also, when I grow up, I want to look just like this lady.
Those shoes are perfection.
