Another trip we're definitely taking this October is James' cousin's wedding in Toronto! Wooo hoo! I've always wanted to visit Canada and I can hardly wait. It's going to be gorgeous and I just love our Canadians. I've never been this far from home and this one is going to require a passport. I can't wait!
Oh, and I am definitely going to travel somewhere by train this year. That is an absolute must.
Learn to danceI'm already a dancing fool. I love love love to dance. If I don't go out dancing for awhile, it feels like pressure building up that needs to be released. I love watching classic musical and dance films. That is the kind of dancing I would love to learn how to do. The tango, foxtrot, ballroom and more specifically the waltz. James won't have anything to do with dancing so my dear friend Chris agreed to take some lessons with me. We're going to have so much fun! I can't wait to buy some proper dancing shoes.
Get off my ass
This had been a loooong time coming. I've been wanting braces since I was a teenager. Unfortunately, my family couldn't afford it so it's up to me to make it happen. Twice already, I've had appointments to get them on but alas money has not been my friend lately and I have to keep postponing it. I just want them on and over with!
New Job, New Adventure
I've had a full time office job for the past 5 years and I'm anxious to make some changes. It's an OK job. I get paid decently, it's not very stressful and I'm comfortable. I just want something new. I need something new. I'm still waiting to hear back from an interview I had a few weeks ago. Wish me luck! Either way, I'm going back to school. I've waited long enough and this has to be done!
As some of you may already know, I'm also a freelance makeup artist. There aren't enough jobs to do this full time but I'm OK with that. I take jobs as they come and I'm happy to have them. It's so much fun. I'm sorry for not posting about this too much. They don't really come that often and I was wary about making this a makeup blog (product reviews, swatches and the like). It doesn't define me as a person and I certainly didn't want it to define my blog. I do love me some makeup though! And I'm planning on posting more about my makeup jobs and favorite looks. Stay tuned! I have some coming up very soon.
Click & Sew
Last year, I learned how to properly use a sewing machine for the first time and it's become my new obsession. My makeup kit is getting so jealous... I definitely want to take more classes this year at the Stitch Lab and finally make my first garment. I'm already excited!
We have a wonderful Canon camera at home that needs more of my attention this year. I've been thinking about adopting one of those Photo-a-Day challenges but that camera is heavy! Maybe I'll start small with a 5 photos a week... Either way, James and I are going to take more outings and I can show you more of my wonderful city. :)
