i am lusting after:
~ this ford fiesta 4-door hatchback:
is this not the most fun little compact vehicle you have ever seen in your entire life?!! that photo is of the very car that was purchased recently by a friend-of-a-friend, and it is just about the most perfect car out i have ever seen. the colour is fantastic, and i love its adore its cute little shape and size. the best thing: you can get it with heated seats! (i will never buy another car without heated seats – i use that feature from september through june, and it is pure bliss). i have no need of a new car today, but this is my dream car of the future!
~these lululemon running tights that one of my colleagues at the store wore to work last week. i practically ripped them right off of her. i have just spent >20 minutes googling and searching online for a photo, and i am stumped ->cannot locate (they’re not the wunder under pants or the groove pants. dorry, help!). the tights are black, fitted, look incredibly comfortable and the pockets on the sides of the legs are a unique design feature. i will ask my co-worker for more details the next time i see her – or ask her to sell them to me!
i am loving…
~ the whole concepts of life possibilities and shape your own destiny, to be all zen-y and new age-y for a second. life is
a highway an open roadway and it’s so easy to keep on going down the straight and narrow. on any given day, though, we have the option of taking an offramp. choosing a new direction is exciting…and a little scary! we can’t predict what will happen, and we need courage and faith to break off our current path. instead of overthinking, just do it! each day is a new day just waiting to be lived.
~ using my foam roller daily – even if i only have 87 seconds to quick roll out my glutes and legs, it’s worth it.
~ that mom gave me an easter card (well, mom AND dad, although i know mom did the choosing):
now i am going to campaign for the return of the easter bunny!
i am liking…
~ wearing my hairband like a hippie + aviator sunglasses + big earrings:
~ the novel “baby proof” by emily giffin. i went to the library, hoping to find “something blue,” the sequel to “something borrowed.” something blue was already loaned out, so i picked up baby proof. it’s just ok. so far, i am not as massively caught up in the plot as i was with something blue. but, i intend to keep reading – it’s still quite enjoyable, and i want to see what happens with the characters and the storyline.
~ top chef canada, season two: right from the first episode, i noted improvements from season one – the pace is quicker, the contestants diverse, the *cheese* factor has lessened…this is highly entertaining tv viewing!
i am loathing:
~ my current shampoo:
i picked up this bottle on sale, at shoppers, and it’s the perfect example of “you get what you pay for.” the powerful scent is positively cloying. i get a whiff of cheap/fake vanilla + coconut milk every time i turn my head, for a good 12-24 hours post-wash. plus, the shampoo itself is overly-creamy and leaves my hair limp-ish. never again!
~ “upright XXL:” i only ever listen to z103.5 when i have the radio on. i love the dance music and the announcers’ personalities and banter. however, there is one severely annoying ad that keeps getting played, and it’s for a…er, male enhancement product, if you catch my drift (no way am i linking to the actual name of the pill, there). granted, i am completely the wrong demographic (not to mention sex) of the targeted consumer, but this ad is just really cringe-inducing and gross!
~ the price of gas:
and to think i was complaining back when a litre cost $1.2x…and, from what i hear, gas prices should hit $1.40 within a few months. yikes!
and you? got a love, like, loathing or lusting to share?! i know my mom is loving that it’s baseball season again, and she can watch her beloved blue jays in action!
