I'd like to say I haven't been blogging because I've been busy. Well, I guess that's kind of true. I've been writing a lot of my book (sequel) and am now over 60,000 words. Feels about 70% done which is awesome sauce. Really loving the way things are going.

Been doing my usual writing for CoS too. Got to interview Liz Phair the other week which was sweet. She was just the nicest, coolest woman ever and I wished I could have hung out with her all day. We bonded over our love of ASOS... how cool is that? Interview should be published on the website soon :) She doesn't look 43 either, she's just one fab yummy mummy.


Other than that I've been preparing to get a job (my EI runs out in December), started a exercise and healthy eating routine (which started with a two-week detox) and am looking forward to an epic trip next month (my last hurrah before employment): road trip with my parents from Vancouver > Yakima > Boise > Salt Lake City > Laughlin > Palm Springs. Then I head to LA after Palm Springs to see Faith No More at the end of November. Twice. Happy times ahead.

OH and getting Halloween all ready, of course. I'm being Meg Griffin (not sexy, but it will sure be funny!), my boyfriend is going as Ash from Evil Dead and we're having a party :)

So I haven't been too much into the whole fashion focus, which happens, but I did bite the bullet and finally order that jacket I wanted from Modcloth.

Seriously, this jacket is AMAZING! It arrived a little wrinkled, but other than that, the cut is to die for, the fake leather is SO realistic you'd never know and it just goes with everything. I couldn't be happier with it!

It's nice to have you back!

I remember hearing one of Liz Phair's songs for the first time on "13 going on 30" - haha. I love that jacket on you, for real. And, congratulations on getting pretty far along on your second book, you must be so stoked. :)

I am very inspired by the jacket! I would not have ever picked that up at the store before, but now I'm feeling a little more gutsy. The earrings are fantastic also-I have definitely been looking for something of that nature lately!

Dina's Days said...

Welcome back! I started a "detox" phase for myself as well, and it's amazing the difference it makes when I cut out all the "fat" in my life..and it's not just food!!

Your jacket is so so flattering, I am obsessed with asymmetrical jackets.
I would love to enter the giveaway, and I will tweet it too!

have a nice week.

What a fantastic jacket - the fit looks perfect for you! I would totally want those earrings if I could wear them, but I'm allergic to everything.

Tell me more about the two week detox. i've thought about doing a detox, but it just sounds too intense.

Fashion Cappuccino said...

Hey!! Is it just me or you're just glowing? I love your new jacket! It's definitely worth it! xxoxoxooxo

MizzJ said...

Please don't count me in your contest as I don't have pierced ears so this would be wasted on me anyways, but I just had to compliment you on your awesome jacket!

Nikki said...

I just discovered your blog today, but I know I'm going to be coming back! Love those earrings!

Annie Spandex said...

Liz Phair is so cool!! Loving it.
Also, you look very cool with your jacket. :)

I've been crazy busy too. I want to read your book!

Count me out on the earrings.. They're cute! I just wear 14g segment hoops and never change them. If I ever do want to change them, it will involve pliers. :*
