* Il fait froid *

I don't think I've ever had to "roll out of bed" until this school year. Even though I only go to school 3 days a week (max), it's like a constant debate with myself every morning I have classes. I weigh out the pros and cons of going to school and go through each class, convincing myself that it's not worth going because all the notes are given to us... or I could always copy notes off a friend... or nothing was due and I could spend my time more effectively sleeping or doing something else. And then when I actually make myself go to school, I'm always like "why am I here..." yeaaa... and today I proved that going to class really isn't necessary to get decent marks!

Whoa this is my 2nd post today! It might make up for the upcoming weekend.

Bern introduced me to a Korean Indie Band called Mary Story. They're style isn't like North American Indie - their songs are basically the alternative soft rock version of Korean songs. Here's a song - check them out! You can download their whole album HERE.

I don't know about you, but I've been a chilly willy! *** Well, only my legs and feet... but last year I was fine all throughout the winter! I even wore those flats allll winter (and was on the news for being so ridiculous.....) but I was totally fine! Anyway, the coldness made me think of warm accessories such as earmuffs, scarves, mitts, and legwarmers. I'm not a hat person - you can get your hat dose on Bern's Blog. ***

Scarves ***
I think I know what I want from my Secret Santa now...
I've been trying to look for the perfect winter scarf for the past 2 years. Last year, I saw a huge gray chunky knit scarf at Zara for $50 but I couldn't bring myself to buy it then. Now, Abercrombie has some scarves for $50 and less!

It's really probably only $35 CDN.. they just jack up the prices on their site.
This looks soft. I just have to check out how long it is next time I go down to the states before I put it on my Secret Santa wishlist. This is something classic. I love chunky knits... and it's white/cream! There are so many cheap scarves out there from Sirens etc. that look similar but they're made out of cheap material. I hope this is different!

I quite like the whole Nordic/Scandinavian look when it's made modern. It's rustic and has a winter detail to it. I even like Aritzia's Cowichan Knit sweater (the one that's gray and cream and has either snowflakes, eagles, moose, or the TNA symbol on it). I want the moose one... they say it'll come out again in December...

Classic classic. A red scarf! I love red scarves. I wish the logo was half its size though...

A&F also carries a few nice pairs of legwarmers but I think those can be made by my mom... I just want plain chunky knit ones.

I need to have a good night's sleep tonight,
"Sleep well",
