Continuing Festivities

Behind on posts from last week!
For Dan's Birthday we went out to dinner with the family
and on the evening of her birthday she had friends over to her place.
great times to catch up with everyone
and a perfect way to jumpstart my Christmas Break!
ps-that is my grandpa's Christmas tree, so nice.
i can't have a big tree in my place!

her birthday was on the 17th, but my life is behind
because of better late than never!!!
i will update more photos from her birthday parties
but here is a montage of US from 2010
:) :) :) :)

you will always be the Ashley to my Mary-Kate!!!

denim and tights


does anyone else feel like they did this circa 2005?
wearing opaque or sheer tights under jean shorts/skirts.
i sorta lost my love for it, and haven't done it since....
but these photos have been popping up all over the web
and actually in my real life too ( i actually have a real life :-)! )
i wouldn't say i won't try it again....but what do YOU think!?
Denim is so causal and goes with many colours, fabrics, etc.
i love wearing them in the summer and have a hard time
transitioning them into winter with tights...hmmm...

On other extremely important and fantastic news...
i finished school for the semester! in fact i am quite behind on my blog.
i finished last week after a few sleepless nights, hurray to finishing exams!
still awaiting my marks, but that is less stressful obviously.

Been doing loads of Christmas shopping and attending many
festive gatherings, hope to update more soon :)

you're original, cannot be replaced

this music video nearly made me tear up today!
i think i am emotional around the holidays hahaha
and i'm overtired.
only two exams left!
thank goodness. i miss my sanity
but seriously, this music video is uplifting
baby. you're a firework!

Ps-this is My Back Pages' 200th Post, exciting!?

12 Days Until Christmas!

Hows everybody's Christmas shopping going?
If you're like me poor, stressed and in exams then you are also a little behind....
but this past weekend i got a bit more ahead :)
i also bought this head scarf to keep my ears warm.
it took forever to find because i needed a colour that wasn't black
black just blends in with my hair
but found this navy one at Zara! yay!!!
(where was this during our -13° cold snap last month!?)

i have spent probably more on myself than on gifts so far
but that is what the holidays is all about right?...right?......
1 exam down, 2 to go
happy studying to my fellow students!

when will they learn?

"Just walked by a woman in a
pair of Louboutins,
a velour Juicy tracksuit
& carrying a Chanel 2.55 -

this made me laugh!!!!
and i'd have to agree with this 100%

The Starving Stylist Tweeted this today

who would possibly wear that all together.....
more importantly, as a true advocate for finding one's
individual style. money is not the answer!
you have to get more creative!

we runnin' this town just like a club

Last weekend Amanda had us over to her new place
for a little house-warming/girls night/food fest/good times etc.
Her place is so cozy, cute, and totally decorated for Christmas. jealous!
i am officially using this week off to do the same to my place!
it was really great to catch up with these ladies
most of them i see all the time, but it was really nice seeing the ones i don't
:) :) :) :) :)
pretty cool to still be friends with my high school friends
so many memories
and way more to come!
love you ladies!!!!

Otis crashed the girls night, but he is the cutest darn puppy!!!!
