Another week has passed by and I am officially done first year university! My last exam was on Tuesday and I finished with half an hour to spare and could not have been more giddy. Now that I’m finally on my lovely four month vacation (so weird to think I have double the amount from high school!), I’ll be posting much more regularly. Here’s the list for this week!
Betsey Johnson has filed for bankruptcy and will be laying off 350 workers – Betsey isn’t happy at all with this and said she’s going to be “really upset” when people who recognize her on the street stop and ask “What happened, what went wrong?”
If you’ve never watched Cupcake Wars, a YouTube user, CupcakeWarsFanatic has uploaded (possibly all of the) episodes. I just began watching this past month while procrastinating and I’m hooked. Mostly because it’s hilarious to watch how intense all the bakers get when it comes to cupcakes. But they really do make some crazy combinations on this show that make me cringe.
Fashion critic Robin Givhan doesn’t like bloggers. Whoops.
All of these toys bring back so many memories from my childhood. Especially the creepy Furbies. I don’t understand why any of us owned them.
A new typeface has been created – from the Balkans. This basically consists ex-Yugoslavia (where I’m from) and combines the latin alphabet along with the Cyrillic. It’s a new form of unity for the countries! Pretty interesting but it hurts my head to read the type face because I actually know both alphabets.
Want to know what’s cuter than English bulldog puppies? English bulldog puppies learning to walk. Excuse me while I cry because I don’t have one.
I went from a non-lipstick wearer to someone who adores lipstick. My new favourite? Orange lipstick. I recently bought this Revlon Super Lustrous lipstick in Creme, Siren. It’s $7.99 on drugstore.com and I’m in love with it. Now I need to find the perfect coral lipstick.
If you’re really disorganized with your makeup and leave it everywhere, fear not! Here are 21 ways to store your makeup!
That’s it for this week’s list! Have you found anything this week that you’ve been loving?

All that stands between myself and the end of my first year is one exam on Tuesday – I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. University has been quite an experience academically. I learned quite some bit and am hopefully prepared to do much better in second year. However, I’m ready for four months of no classes and am on a hectic search for a job (if you live in Ottawa and you’re a hiring business … please contact me)! My posts will be much more frequent once I’m completely done, so make sure you’re coming back!
But because of my final journalism exam, I have to make sure I’m not relaxing too much this weekend. Either way, here are some of this week’s favourites!
My aunt back home in Serbia posted this photo of their golden retriever on Facebook. Had to put it as a favourite – he’s adorable!
I’ve been playing Dark Paradise by Lana Del Rey on repeat all week. Absolutely in love with the song and lyrics. Hopefully she puts out a music video for this song next.
NARS released their Spring 2012 line earlier this week. I checked out their new items on Temptalia a while ago and if I had the money, I probably would have purchased the majority of the products. I’m especially loving the shadow pencil!
I’ve been watching so many haul videos from IMATS NYC as it went on last weekend. Makes me super excited for Toronto IMATS in November; seems like people got some amazing deals!
As someone who worked in customer service and retail, these 12 Tips for Working in Retail Without Killing Everyone Around You are a hilarious read.
Poli Sci Ryan Gosling is a dream come true.
I’m excited to finally have time starting next week to try all the recipes collecting on my Pinterest board. Especially this , spinach and mushroom quiche. It looks delicious!
Finally, I have to include this weeks episode of Glee. It was adorable. I couldn’t stop squealing. Saturday Night Glee-ver was just too good.
Hopefully your weekends are much more relaxing than mine!

Here’s another Friday Favourite post not too late in the day, gathering some of this week’s loveliest things that I have discovered! After an exciting reading week of working away on assignments (please note the sarcasm), I am now snowed into my home for the day.This is the only fun I’ll be having for the evening, so enjoy the following!
Thakoon for NARS nail collection
Kate Daley, an editor over at Chatelaine magazine, tweeted (@katedaley1) a picture last week of a preview of the new NARS nail polish collection coming out this May. These spring colours just make me crave the sunshine even more now.
Marc by Marc Jacobs Classic Q Natasha in Berry Haze
On my wish list. This cross body bag is retailing at $368 on marcjacobs.com, but they only have the bag in Cherry Red and Sugar. Nordstorm is also selling the Natasha in Blossom - another perfect shade for the upcoming warmer months. If someone loves me enough to buy me this bag, you’d be my best friend.
Prada’s 2012 Open-toe Shoe Collection
They’re inspired by classic American cars. I saw a preview of these heels a while ago and was recently reminded of them when Emma Roberts posted a photo on Instagram of her new pair earlier this week. They’re all ridiculously good looking – now I just need somewhere to where them to. And the money to buy a pair.
Homemade Cheese Tea Biscuits
My mother went crazy baking biscuits last night after getting a recipe from a friend. They’re extremely quick to whip up and make a good breakfast with a mug of coffee! I plan on doing a recipe post on these in the next few days (hopefully).
Vogue March 2012
Got my hands on a copy of the newest issue of Vogue and it’s over 600 pages of fashion. If you haven’t gotten your copy yet, what are you waiting for?
