Is it weird that I whenever I write the word Wednesday, I have to say it "wed-nes-day" in my head?
It's definitely Wednesday, and I'm definitely looking forward to this long weekend.

Is anyone else feeling the mid-week lull?

crazy pants

Meet my crazy pants...well technically, crazy onesie....cause its all one fantastic piece. I actually purchased this last year at the vintage store I used to work at, but didn't end up wearing it very much. This summer it's become a favourite item and is getting lots of wear. It's fun, bright, and SO incredibly comfortable! I even had a random man on the street refer to them as MC Hammer pants. I'll take it! Best compliment ever!

Also, I would like to introduce you to my new shoes from modcloth.com. These puppies came to me all the way from LA, and were worth all that postage.

vintage sunglasses, bracelets from Aldo Accessories
This outfit make me so happy and always puts me in the best mood for my day! What item in your closet makes you smile the most?

a place for the ladies

Want to be inspired by cute, funny, and interesting things? Then head to my new favourite website, hellogiggles.com! This is a place for gals, and gals only!

Co-founders Zooey Deschanel, Sophia Rossi, and Molly McAleer have created a brilliant website full of everything a girl needs/loves. There is something on there for everyone, and I have to say, the website lives up to its name. Lots of giggles there. All the writers on the site are bloggers from all over (a few from Canada) and from all age groups (there's one blogger who is 12 years old!).

Some highlights include the reality tv episode recaps (so funny), the "cuteness" section, and the "how to" section.

This is definitely a site not to be missed by any fashion savy, compassionate, witty, sarcastic, handy, and powerful woman. So get clicking ladies!

I have a new job!

So I know I've been absent the last week and a bit, and I've felt horrible to all my blog readers, but I've been busy transitioning from classes to work and its felt like a bit of a whirlwind. But I'm finally getting settled in!

I'm interning over the summer as part of my graduate program at Amnesty International! Amnesty is an organization that works to promote human rights around the world through advocacy and research. I'm so honoured and excited to be given this opportunity. I'm only 2 days in, but I feel like it's exactly where I'm meant to be. I'm so inspired by the people that I'm working with, and the work that Amnesty does as a whole. There's something so incredible about being surrounded by people who have a real sense of purpose and excitement about their jobs.

They set up a nice desk for me, and I snapped a few pics on my phone that I'm sharing with you so you can get an idea of where I work.

My lovely and BIG desk!

I have office supplies!

Thank you letter madness!
My position at Amnesty is assisting with the monthly giving program in the Fundraising (Resource Development) department. I get to connect with donors and talk about why the work that Amnesty does is so important.

SO, visit the Amnesty website (www.amnesty.ca), read about what we do, get involved, and spread the word!

And I promise I will be better at blogging! ;)
