Feeling Foxy Friday: Joules Review

I don't know how the weather is on your end, but here in Canada it is c o l d. But just because it's cold doesn't mean I have to ditch the warm coloursI am channeling my inner autumn, since I miss that weather oh-so-much. 

What I'm wearing: Boots c/o Joules USA, Dress Urban Planet, Coat (old) H&M, Scarf/Hat/Mits Local boutiques, Tights Value Village 

I'm feeling foxy today with my fox dress and these amazing Fox Rain Boots from Joules.  It's hard to find a good pair of waterproof winter boots, and rain boots take on even the deadliest of blizzards. The winters where I am are also extremely wet. There is actually a puddle so large on my campus right now, we call it Lake McMaster. 

It's also difficult to find a pair of rain boots that aren't hard to walk in, fit right on the calf, and are comfortable. I am telling you that these Joules Rainboots are made in heaven, it feels like I'm walking on a cloud. They are comfortable, stylish, affordable and make me want to go jump in as many puddles (or snow forts) as possible. If you don't feel like channeling your inner Foxy Cleopatra, their boots come in many different styles and patterns. Some of the other pairs I may have to snatch up are: thesethese, and these

Going to find some puddles to jump in now!

Weekly Roundup

You know what the best feeling in the world is? The feeling when you have been trying to crack your finger for what seems like eons (when really it's been thirty seconds) and it finally cracks. Anyways, happy Sunday everybody! I hope your 2014 has been going well. I've spent the first five days of 2014 and last five days of my holidays before school starts by laying in bed in my comfy Christmas pajamas playing The Sims over and over again. Apparently I would rather clean my Sims apartment rather than my own, oh well. Here is this week's roundup!

The holidays shouldn't be your only excuse to eat delicious food. Try these Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Bites and start your New Year's resolution next week (or next year.. who needs diets, really?) 

It's not like I need anymore excuses to shop, but this Reverse Split Sweater from Nasty Gal is too cute to resist. Watch out Kelly Kapowski 


I saw the Beyonce's Mrs Carter Tour in Toronto a few weeks ago, and I can't even comment on the fabulousness (is that a word?) on her performance. I know the album was released a few weeks ago and people may be thinking "this is old news" but whoever says that deserves a punch in the gut. Since the release, I have watched this music video an average five times a day. It's my favourite video from the album, what's yours?


I'm not sure what the weather is like in Italy right now but if it looks anything like this, take me there now. Secluded Beach, Furore, Amalfi, Italy

Now that I have my own Polaroid camera, this looks like a project I would love to do.
