Hi 2013

I hope everyone had a good time during the holidays and that you all celebrated with your loved ones! I took some times off from work and pretty much everything in life to rest and recharge myself. I also took some time to reflect back on 2012.


January was quiet and I found an amazing hairdresser (Noah @ Paris Coiffure Dorval ) at the end of the month and decided to fully commit to my pink hair by bleaching it! Things got serious in February with the student strikes everywhere and I was overwhelmed with the stress of how it would affect my studies: if someone is going to fuck my studies up, it’s going to be me, not students on strike (selfish, don’t care) so I got involved in the “NO” movement in my school. I never got involved in any school politics before so it was interesting and I met amazing people and learned so much about myself. I then celebrated my birthday quietly with my family with cake and flowers


Spring brought bad news... remember that bit about fucking up my studies... well that’s kinda what happened and I failed two classes. The news truly destroyed me and I didn’t really know what to do so I did a little bit a retail therapy and decided to focus on my job instead. I had no idea what to do about school at that point so least I could do was so focus on becoming someone within the company. I also attended the GlossyBox party where I met a lot of amazing bloggers, like Sarah-Jane who’s reallllly inspirational!


By July, I was burned out so I took a week off to travel to... Connecticut. Not as wild and exotic as South Korea but I was really happy to catch up with Braeden and to learn how to fish. I also got super long extensions (oh that I miss dearly!!) and attended Otakuthon as Babydoll from Sucker Punch! I got the ok from my neurologist and finally got my learner’s and started learning how to drive!!


From Otakuthon, my cosplay fever was back and I cosplayed Zatanna at the Montreal ComicCon and wore my Black Cat ( Felicia Hardy ) cosplay at a club and won 300$! To solve my little schooling problem, I decided to give university a shot and took one class of Mandarin at Université de Montréal. I also decided that it was time to redecorate my room... my computer also decided that it didn’t want to live anymore so I welcomed my first iMac instead ( dear Dell laptop, you are SO not missed!). I had enough of pink hair so I dyed it lavender/lilac!

The year ended by me falling sick again but that didn’t stop me from working and then taking some time off. I was back to myself by January 31st and started the new year partying! 

Overall, I think 2013 had extreme lows and extreme highs. I am way happier today than I was a year ago and I think I’ve grown a lot as a person from 2012.


I'm a little bit late but happy new year everyone <3 p="p">


  1. Happy new year! I really liked your pink hair and Felicia Hardy costumes. Definitely something I really remember whenever I had the chance to read your blog. I really hope 2013 is a wonderful year for you ♥

  5. All you can do is remember the positives and let the negatives go! My "Shmuberry Memory" of 2012 is your post about going to the Betsy Johnson shop, meeting the cool staff and buying like 75% of their stock. If felt like fun just reading about it!
