I decided to actually put forth some effort to do some blogging since I'm all caught up on school (this typed as of last Saturday, heh!)! WOOOO!!! This week I thought I'd do a theme that didn't involve a bunch of fancy pants heels and stuff, I wanna lust over some boots! It's too damn cold for heels, anyhow!

Bre's week in links 1-27-12

Totally forgot about this gorgeous sunrise we got during the snow!
I miss blogging, you guys :c I'm popping in right now because I'm actually pretty much caught up on schoolwork for the week. Only two discussion questions to complete before Sunday at 7! Woo! I'm never caught up like this, I'm usually scrambling to finish everything on the last day. Lots of fun stuff coming up, though, my side of the family is throwing Jade his late birthday party on Sunday and then this coming week it looks like I'm getting my hair fixed by the wonderous Chivahn and maybe getting a new tattoo! WOOOO TAX RETURN TIME! ANYHOW. Let's toss out some links, shall we?

These wine glass "coasters" are really neat, and SO simple. Looks like they'd be pretty easy to DIY, gonna have to give it a shot since we're pretty big wine drinkers in this house!

Miss Kate shared her top 5 storage solutions for small spaces. I am in serious lust with those skinny IKEA bookcases, I need a ton!


Speaking of shoes, Solestruck is in the midst of a gnarly flash sale featuring Irregular Choice, Senso, and Matiko! GOGOGO BEFORE IT'S OVER AT MIDNIGHT!

Love this shoot featuring Ego and Greed shoes. I'm a sucker for stark contrast.

This cartoon from The Oatmeal last week is the effing truth. Everyone in my particular region says this EXACT SAME THING.

I'll be posting intermittently, but I can never really tell when :/ So, until next time!

Music Monday #14 - The Naked and Famous

Since I've had far too many Music Mondays featuring M83 the past few weeks, as much as I LOOOOVE them, let's skip to The Naked and Famous. This band and I are getting married.

Add me on!

Photodump - Jade's first birthday, snowed in!

So, in the last week our son turned 1 and then we got totally snowed in. Soooo frustrating when I've got ebay stuff to ship and I'm going totally stir-crazy! GAH! I even had to reschedule Jade's one year checkup to next week, hopefully the weather clears up! ANYHOW. Pictures!

Terry's mom brought balloons. HOLY HELL I have NEVER seen him filled with so much glee!
I love Terry's face in this. Such an awesome moment.
Snowmaggeddon 2012, indeed! Terry and Jade on the sidewalk, random dudes are walking in the road for whatever reason.
We needed groceries horribly, luckily we live right next door to a Safeway! A bundled-up Jade safeguarding the garlic :D
Snow is fun and all, but I'm really looking forward to this whole thing heading out! My side of the family wasn't able to make it to Jade's party due to everyone being sick/snowed in, but we were hoping to have another party this weekend. That doesn't look like it's gonna happen :c I've been religiously checking the weather, though, and it looks like the temp is gonna start rising over the next few days, then we're getting rain next week! So it's looking like next week will be better. Fingers crossed!

I may have seriously found another favorite band. I CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF M83! AHHHHH!!!

Add me on!


Saturday, January 14, 2012


Awww. Taking a quick break from school to share this. It FINALLY started to snow today. Jade seemed to like it a great deal :3 Good thing I don't have to go anywhere, my tires are effed!

Hope everybody's well! Looking forward to catching up on schoolwork so I can work on other stuff, too!

Music Monday #12 - Pretty Girls Make Graves

First day back to classes! No time to ramble today :c I've got a quick second for Music Monday, though! PGMG = <3

Add me on!


Sunday, January 8, 2012


I've been meaning to share my collection for quite some time, but never felt like hauling all my shoes out of their boxes and bags. I was in a funk over the state of our bedroom and wanted to rearrange some things, so  Jade and I ventured out today and got a super awesome (and CHEAP!) expandable shoe rack from Walmart and took a quick snapshot :D I CAN'T RESIST. I still have so many more pairs at my mom's house for some reason, but here's the bulk of 'em!

The only thing that sucks is that high wedges don't sit on it so well :/ Small price to pay! But one day I'll get all of  my shoes in one place and share (and take better photos, ha)!

Bre's week in links 1-6-12

LOVE. (source)

Happy New Year!!! Got a lot going on these coming weeks, I have a badass commission for another Seattle salon's website that I'll be working on, school starts back up on Monday (AND I'm taking on extra tutoring this quarter as well!), PLUS Jade's first birthday is coming up on the 17th, so I'm hoping I'll be able to keep up with all that AND the blog, as I've grown quite fond of it this past month :D For now, here's what I was ogling this last week!

I love this. Crime breakdown by astrological sign. I'm pretty into astrology and believe in it immensely, so this is totally fascinating to me.

DIY sequin headphones! *screams* I am SO in love with this blog, so many neat (sparkly!) ideas!

How to write your personal mission statement, from Gala.

This is one of the sweetest things I've ever seen. A love letter a day for 2011.

I really love these Andy Warhol prints. I want them everywhere.

Love this post on crafty organization! I LOVE ORGANIZATIONNNN.

A friend of a friend acted as Brad Pitt's character in a remake of the normally tragic "what's in the box" scene of Seven, but reworked it into sort of a dark photographer comedy. I think it's so awesome!

Ever want to listen to music on your phone in the shower, but can't hear it over the water? Here ya go. (By the way, TOTALLY used to record songs off the radio! And I, too, worshiped the Spice Girls. No shame in that! Where do you think my obsession with platform shoes came from?! Hahaha!)

Elycia shares her monthly blog planner. I'd totally benefit from something like this.

Another gem from Gala: In praise of calling it quits.

Carissa Rose is having another sale on her GORGEOUS prints! 30% off with code NEWYEARS30 through this Sunday! Go stock up, I know I will!

In super-duper fangirl news, the one, the only Aimee Echo herself reposted my last blog post to her Facebook yesterday! AHHHHHH I CAN'T BREATHE!!! <3 <3 <3!!!

Until next week! Love you guys <3

Style Covet #2 - Aimee Echo

Today's coveted style comes from my favorite singer EVAR, Aimee Echo of theSTART, Normandie, and Human Waste Project fame. Not only does she have the gorgeous vibrato-laden voice of an angel, she is whip-smart, completely gorgeous, grounded, grateful for every fan she has, and socially conscious (she's also a badass yoga instructor!). I. Love. Her. Every time I meet her, she is sososo wonderful.

So, here's my style board. This dress is TO DIE FOR and I immediately thought of her first thing when I saw it!  And you can't forget the fabulous Fluevog hoof boots! <3


Kelly Ewing black strapless cocktail dress, $125
American Apparel seamed stocking, $17
Lace up boots, 599 CAD
White jewelry, $34
MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Black Waterproof Cream Eye Shadow, $22

Shoes-day Tuesday #13 - Stripes

1. Christian Louboutin Sing Sing striped wedges $136.50
2. Giuseppe Zanotti striped slingback canvas peeptoe pumps $750
3. Charlotte Olympia striped wedges $239
4. Jeffrey Campbell Lita in black/white stripe $166.00
5. Bebe Clarice in black suede $124.99
6. Pinup Couture Bettie-18 $56.99

I'm not entirely sure what it is about black and white stripes, but I've been obsessed with them since I was an angsty teenager and constantly wore striped tights and combat boots. Hahaha, I was a total Hot Topic goth kid, but of all the atrocious "alt" trends I clung to, the stripe one never went away, and that's perfectly okay.

ACK. In band class, age 15 - 1999!

(I totally still have all my old tights!)
