lust, love, like, loathe


i am lusting after:

~ this ford fiesta 4-door hatchback:

whoever dreamed up that colour is a genius!

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):

i am betting this is a find from "write impressions!"

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:

expect to see a lotttt of this look - plus more earthy fashion add-ons! - over the course of 2012! 'tis the look i'm digging!

~ 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:

a new-to-me hairwashing product

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:

as of easter sunday

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!

    I love the new look!
    Gas where I live is $4.07 or something…I don’t know how that translates, but it’s darn expensive!
    I’m loving pb so much lately…and chocolate. And cashews. Wait, those are all food.
    I am loving my new athleta purchases that I spent way too much on, and I’m totally enjoying being in the South this week in warm weather (I heard it was really chilly this week at home)!
    I don’t think I loathe anything right now. How lucky is that??!

      ok, if this was facebook, i would be putting a *like* beside everything that you list here, lisa (except the gas price, haha! and i don’t know, either, how to translate from litres to gallons!). it IS a good thing when you can’t find a dislike – i like that about you, too!

  • Francene  On April 14, 2012 at 6:23 am

    That looks like our car–color and all. It’s really comfy too. Your hippy look doesn’t convince me. Chin up–look the camera in the shutter. Think groovy!!
    And keep blogging.

    • 1970kikiproject  On April 14, 2012 at 6:31 am

      haha, thanks for your posing tips, francene – i will keep them in mind! enjoy your car ~ i’m seeing more and more of that colour on the streets around here…other people must like it, too!

    i am LOVING my new haircut… nothing different. it’s just that it’d been at least 6 months since my last trim so my hair was so tangled, knotted, split-ended and dry at the ends. now it’s swishy smooth again!
    on another note, i cannot believe you skipped books in a series! i am all about reading series exactly in order so i was shocked that you were reading baby proof without reading something blue first! s. b. will explain a lot to you about b. p. so i want to yell “wait for it to come into the library for you!” 🙂 albeit neither of the books are as good as the first but they’re still light, fun reads. have you read the shopaholic series? now SHE is a great author, too. i’ve read all of her books both in and outside of the series.

    • 1970kikiproject  On April 13, 2012 at 2:37 pm

      ah, a haircut for spring is perfect! plus, you got some pampering time! i think i’m ok – baby proof features different characters than sb and the sequel – those two you would have to read in order! never fear, i could never read books out of order!!! the horror! 🙂 i tried one shopaholic…and wasn’t a fan. :/ but i could try it again – see how i liked “friday night knitting club” when i revisited it! hope you are finding enough time for “the help!”

    Love your headband and sunglasses look. It suits you. I am also loving the Athleta ads with the words lists. I keep copying them into my journal. So inspirational. I had a friend with a car of the color you show. It was a cop magnet so be careful or maybe things are different in the great north. Can’t think of anything I’m loathing these days. Maybe that’s a good thing.

    • 1970kikiproject  On April 13, 2012 at 8:26 am

      thanks, johanna! ooo, thanks for the warning about the bright car attracting the cops – that is a good point and i had not thought of it. glad you have nothing to loathe, at the moment. as i was composing, i thought, “if this is all i can complain about, things are good!” have a great weekend!

  • Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count  On April 13, 2012 at 8:08 am

    I Love the hippie look! You’d fit right in if you came to our town in New Mexico. When I tell people about the town I always say…If you hippie is missing…I know where they went!! The car is adorable also. I’m always worried about getting such a “festive” color on something you’ll need to keep a Long time. The amusement might wear off…

    • 1970kikiproject  On April 13, 2012 at 8:28 am

      fran, you need to stop tempting me about new mexico!!! i am so there in a heartbeat (there are some great knitting shops in that state, and awesome running trails, PLUS the hippie vibe -> PERFECT!!!). true that the car colour could grow old…or you’d find another colour you like even more!

  • strivingcynic  On April 13, 2012 at 7:06 am

    I am loving that it’s spring and I want to be outside more. Loathing that it’s still cold at night but I end up getting hot because I dress too warmly and use too many blankets.

    • 1970kikiproject  On April 13, 2012 at 8:29 am

      i hope you get to spend some time outdoors this weekend, zo! maybe take some more photos?? it is chilly at night here, too – guess that is to be expected for mid-april!

  • Stephanie  On April 13, 2012 at 6:46 am

    Gas in this part of the country is a dollar forty-something! It’s crazy. Luckily, I don’t have to drive much.

    • 1970kikiproject  On April 13, 2012 at 6:51 am

      yikes!! ok, you are ahead of us…nice that you can get away with limited car-time!
