Friday Favs #5

Hey there folks! How’s your week been? Mine got derailed with a sick cat. My little guy got sick about a month ago and this time, just for fun, my old gal decided she’d take a spin at being sick for once. She’s never been sick a day in her life, other than over dramatic barfing from scarfing her food back too quickly. She’s getting up there, she’s 16 now, so I was worried sick! I was also fretting about the cost of getting her into a vet as rent just came out and we’re between pay cheques. Since we knew how much it cost last time we knew we didn’t have anywhere near enough to float that bill. A friend suggested a gofundme and HOLY CRAP, am I dumbfounded and just overwhelmed by the generosity and kindness of friends and strangers alike! My heart grew ten sizes in an hour, as that’s all it took to raise the funds we’d need.

We got her into the vet ASAP and treated. She’s still groggy, but she’s doing much better. We’re just waiting to hear back from the vet on her blood panels. Fingers crossed everything is ok and it was just a bug. Poor thing.

Let’s see, what else. OH! I also changed my hair, I unveiled it on snapchat first as well as gave out some handy DIY hair dying tips. I’ve been meaning to put together a post here and I mean to get that up this month! Since I promised my snapchat followers they’d get to see it first I waited to reveal it on instagram, I have a couple photos up now, but if you still haven’t seen it you’ll either have to wait for my next outfit post or head over to my Instagram.

That pretty much sums up my week, next week I’m getting geared up for my 34th b-day!! I’ll post a b-day party inspo post, as well as a birthday wishlist for weird, feminist, witch girls!

On to this weeks favs!

  • This article about zip lining by Alysse Dalessandro got to me! I had no idea zip line weight restrictions are more based on dicrimination that liabilty. All the zip line companies need to do is supply larger harnesses. When I called to go a few years ago, they said it was because of impact,  I now know that’s a load of bologna!
  • As someone who has dreamed of being a designer since I was a little girl, but felt there was no place for me in the fashion world because I was fat, I find an immense well of inspiration from indie designers. These designers share some of the pitfalls and triumphs of the business. I am always thankful for getting the chance to learn more about the business: good and bad.
  • I’ll take one please!
  • My long time friend and contributing writer here, Carmen Perez,  is participating in Balding for Dollars to support BC Children’s Hospital and kids with cancer. This drive helps support great programs to help improve life of not only the diagnosed children but also their siblings and parents as well, such as the Teen and Family Adventure programs, Survivor Education Bursary program, Family Support program, and funding for Childhood Cancer Research. Our friend group was rocked with two diagnoses a few years back, so cancer fundraisers where we know where the money is going and how it will be utilized is very dear to our hearts!
