Working for the weekend.

Sorry I don't post on the weekends very often. I work every weekend, so I don't really have the time to spend playing on the computer.

Tomorrow I don't have to work, my first Monday off in sooo long... I think if I can afford it, I want to drive to Radium to visit my best friend Sarah. I'll have to see if she is working or not.

Friday's thoughts.

Just because I moved out of the cottage, doesn't mean that I stopped liking the country/ shabby chic decor. But will it look weird if that's how I decorate our apartment? I don't know if I should give it a try or not... I went around town yesterday and all the things I saw and wanted to buy (I forgot that P had my debit card... Boo!) were very shabby chic.

There is this store where I live called Morris Flowers (, and yes, it is a flower shop. But it also has antique furniture, and the cutest picture frames and home decor that you'll ever see. My favorite things I saw there yesterday were a mirror made from an old window, the glass was replaced with mirrors... twig picture frames, shabby chic bathroom signs en francais. They also have a selection of specialty chocolates and lotions. Here are a couple pictures I found on their website:

On a diferent note, my first bento lunch was a big success. I didn't think I would be able to last the whole day of work with such a small amount of food, but I actually almost couldn't finish it.
And thanks to Sarah for taking these adorable pictures for me:

How lucky that my best friend is working in a place that sells one of my favorite things!?

Cutest snack ever!

One of the girls at work was always talking about this snack she saw on one of her anime shows. When I was out and about I found some so I bought it for her. She wasn't at work when I went to bring it so instead of waiting until I saw her again, I decided to keep it for myself. :)
Soooo yummy!

Look how cute they are! I think I may have a new favorite food.
The strawberry ones taste like they were dipped in a strawberry milkshake!

Getting crafty.

Last night while reading through some of my favorite blogs, I came across a post about painting on tshirts with acrylic paint. I grabbed a couple of my grungy old tank tops, a few brushes, some acrylic paint, and some spray paint. Here are the results:

Ta da! Not the greatest, but I love them.

The coolest candle ever.

The other day I was craving an iced capp from the little store across the street from my apartment building. Well, by street I mean the highway... Since it takes fifty years of waiting for a lull in traffic so I can actually cross the road, I decided to check out Kootenay Candles ( which is beside the iced capp place. BAAAAAD idea! I fell in love with this store. I was born and raised in this town and I've never been inside. It was probably for the best since now I want to buy EVERYTHING in there. I figured I could afford to buy one thing each payday so here is payday #1:

Isn't it gorgeous!? I don't think these are made in the store, but they are amazing! For the first few paydays I think this is what I'll be getting. There are all different kinds of cupcakes and they smell soooo good.
They also have candles in tea cups, and in martini glasses, shaped like chocolates and cookies.
Besides candles, they also carry little things for the home and garden. I bought my friend Jenny one of those little Zen gardens with the sand and the rake. She loves it.

Return of R!

Hiiiii! I am back! But now instead of the Cupcake Cottage, I live in A Very Empty Apartment. For a few months (April-June) my man and I weren't together so we moved out of the Cupcake Cottage. At the beginning of July we moved back in together but sadly not into our beloved cottage. So I guess now I'll start catching you up on My Life if Whimsy in A Very Empty Apartment!

Here are a few pictures taken a few days after we moved in:

Veeeeeery boring! And nothing matches... All our things from Cupcake Cottage do NOT match.
