I hope your day is spooky!

Some songs I have on repeat right now. 
P.S The last song is from the movie 'Drive', have you seen it? It's brilliant.

Sweet story. 
Last Friday I had a night out on the town and somewhere in there my wallet got lost. 
So much anxiety! 
Luckily my credit card company tracked it down for me and it had been returned to a little shop. Except the shop didn't open until Tuesday morning.
I spent 4 days on 75 cents and the kindness of friends. 
And then yesterday when I got home from work there on the counter was my wallet and a little box of the most delicious macarons. 
A friend had gone and picked it up for me and bought me a treat and then brought it over to my house. 
Everything was still in my wallet and all was good. 
People are so kind, we don't give them enough credit for that do we?

It's those last few days of Fall before Winter arrives.
Yesterday we sat outside in our wool sweaters eating popcorn until it got too cold and we couldn't feel our fingers.

Things I learned this week:
-Letdowns are hard, but I need to move on.
-I love Thanksgiving Dinner more than anything. 
-I love my friends and the people I work with 
- My life has quickly turned into the less glamorous version of 'The New Girl'. 
-Watching old home videos with your relatives is incredibly embarrassing!
-Slowly learning to be a business lady.
-I decide on how my day is going to be every morning, and i'm choosing EXCELLENT!

It's Canadian Thanksgiving this weekend and myself and a friend have decided that 
this evening we will make Pumpkin Pie into the wee hours of the night.
Is anything better than Pumpkin Pie?

P.S We're gonna use this recipe. yum.

The end of bike riding season may be fast approaching however this 
video made me pretty happy (and a little envious of their mad skills).

I knit my first toque last night and I'm just so excited about it! 
It's so small it would probably fit a peanut
but now i'm in full-on knitting mode 
Watch out!

I saw these over at Miss Moss yesterday and was enchanted, 
my love for them grew though when I saw where they were from- who would've thought?!

I had a mini holiday this weekend in Jasper. The Mountains were extraordinary with all their 
changing colours and fresh snow on the tops every morning. We even saw the cutest little black bear (ok I would not be saying he was cute if we were remotely close to him, but from a distance he was pretty darn cute!) 
One morning we walked around Mount Edith Cavell which has the most beautiful glacier and glacial lake below it. There were hundreds of little icebergs floating around and they were amazing with all their different shapes and patterns.
 Is it weird that i'm now feeling inspired by Icebergs?

Bah! How great are all these shoes from NYFW?!

Swissmiss is always an endless supply of inspiration and cool stuff, however this quote I saw the other day really struck a chord with me (plus I love John Holt).

Oh hello Friday! 
A hot indian summer mixed with Uni. back in has doubled the amount of people in my little corner of this city and it's lovely to see everyone outside walking around and eating outside in one last attempt to salvage summer.
Hope you're weekend is warm and laid back!

I'm back from my 'business trip' and feeling very business lady-like right now! 
I was reading about manifestos the other night and thought these were interesting. 
Do you have a personal manifesto?

I'm going up to northern Alberta today for a little bit and I started thinking about the Canadian Arctic and their fascinating culture.
In the late 50's the artist James Houston went to the remote Inuit community of Cape Dorset in Nunavut and started a graphic arts workshop, the idea took off and today Cape Dorset is a huge hub for Inuit art. 
One of their most prominent artists is Kenojuak Ashevak who started drawing in the late 1950's, her work has even been featured on postage stamps and coins in Canada.
 I love how her art is so  full of colour and life.
