MONDAY - PART 2
THE GOVERNMENT IS
OBAMA SAVES OTTAWA
They've ruined a lot of peoples lives and Christmas not to mention students that have had to sleep in libraries because they couldn't get back and forth. Traffic has been horrendous around the city taking people 2-3 hours to get home and business had dropped by 30%-40% around the downtown core. I've heard of some people walking 2 hours to work, lucky for me I live and work downtown so it's taken me half an hour each way. I've lost 5 pounds since the strike, so good on that retrospect haha.
Well the strike may have ended last Friday, but were only going to have some service coming back on Feb 9th because the mechanics have to fix all the buses (Although full service won't resume till May apparently). I think the Union is ridiculous these drivers are pulling in 40-50 thousand a year base and most make 20-30 thousand more in over time just to drive a bus! They make more then some cops and doctors and it's not like you need much of an education. Anyway, the mayor asked everyone to move and and get over it, so now I'm over it. I'm happy that I'm going to have to luxury of transportation again. I miss our car, but it's 16,000 kilometers away in Melbourne, Australia...
MY MOM HAD STYLE
I went shopping at Aritzia the other day and I never noticed this note written at the bottom of their bags, too cute.
While I was out thrifting with my mom at Value Village I found this large travel bag. I know it's totally granny and vintage, but I fell in love with it. My boyfriend kinda raised an eyebrow when I brought it home, but I love it.
I love this very loose long cardigan while thrifting too, I'll probably wear it with a belt around the middle when the hot weather comes.
This may look like a child's cardigan, but it's not. The inner girly girl child in me could not resist.
I got this shimmery scarf at Winners while I was out with my mom too, I plan on wearing it when I go to NY in a couple of weeks.
I got this fab (wrinkled, yeah I need to iron) 3.1 Philip Lim dress, unfortunately it's not appropriate for the winter, but I can't wait to wear it when the weather warms up.
I also wanted to share my favorite lipbalm with you guys. I had a friend who I went to college with that always use to use this stuff. I remember wanting it because I liked how big the jar was and well she always had the coolest things because she use to travel to China a lot to visit her family. Well I finally decided to get a jar of my own and I love it, I put it on like 10 times a day. If you live in Ottawa I think you can get it at Holt Renfrew, otherwise I bought it at the Keihl's store in Montreal.
