D Is for Dangerous

Music: D Is for Dangerous by the Arctic Monkeys
Ok, this one was a little weird. I decided to go a little twilight on us all and do a vampire photoshoot, it was actually really fun, (notice the red eyes? It just happened on it's own, cool eh?) But while I was doing it my mom called my and asked if I wanted to go to the grocerie store, I told her i couldn't and she asked, "Why not?" I said "Because I'm dressed like a vampire." She asked if I was going goth and I told her no, it was pretty funny.

Song Covers

This is a Katy Perry cover of "Firework", done by my best friend Amy and I. The quality is pretty bad, but I like our harmonies. So I hope you enjoy! It's also on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out:
The second one here is a Bruno Mars cover of "The Way You Are" my brother randomly walks in (wearing his very fashionable skiing outfit) and pretty much wrecks the whole thing.

I Will Follow You Into The Dark

I love this song right now, it's called "I Will Follow You Into The Dark" by Death Cab For Cutie. I love to play it on guitar, the chords are easy and I think it sounds OK. Actually i found out about it last semester when this guy and this girl who both knew it, (they were big DCFC fans) did this duet it was really beautiful, personally, I liked their version even more than DCFC's original version (even though the original is still awesome.) So here are the lyrics:

Love of mine some day you will die
But I'll be close behind
I'll follow you into the dark

No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of a spark
If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

In Catholic school as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me
"Son fear is the heart of love"
So I never went back

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark

You and me have seen everything to see
From Bangcock to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes are all worn down
The time for sleep is now
It's nothing to cry about
Cause we'll hold each other soon
The blackest of rooms

If heaven and hell decide
That they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs

If there's no one beside you
When your soul embarks
Then I'll follow you into the dark
Then I'll follow you into the dark

Awesome, eh? Give it a listen and if you play guitar learn it, it's a great song. Here's a link to the [unofficial] tabs:


Music: Naked by Avril Lavigne
Also an old photo shoot, I don't remember what I was thinking here.

Savin' Me

Music: Savin' Me by Nickelback
These are so embarrassing, but it was at least a year ago (back when I had my super long hair) but I decided to post all my old photo shoots, so they may seem a little silly.

100% Organic Cotton = 100% Cute

I just recently bought this 100% organic cotton dress from my favorite store, H&M. Cute, hm? The print is actually hearts, one of my favorite patterns at the moment because it's fun, flirty, kinda quirky, and unexpected. I am also in love, and since i like to express my feelings through my clothes this is a great way. The only thing is the dress has a corset, bustier style top, which is hard for me because I have a tiny waste for a "D" cup. So in dresses like these, the waist is usually to big and the cups are too small. But I chose a dress a size larger than my size, and it fit! I was so exited because I love that dress. I haven't worn it yet, but i was thinking about saving it for valentines day. The only thing about that is my boyfriend has planned something for that day, and he will not tell me what it is. (But he told my best friend and she says "oh my god, Olivia! Your going to love it!") But knowing Jonathan, a strapless dress may not be practical. So we will see, I don't know if i can even wait that long to wear it. Yes, I am a little too proud of my purchase. But honestly, can you blame me? Check it Out for Yourself!

Searching in H&M

Living in a small town, the closest H&M isn't really all that close. But I always spend a lot of money whenever i do go, so I guess it's a good thing it's not all that close because i would then be broke. The last few times I have gone I have looked high and low for this dress, advertised on their website and in their magazine and I simply could not find it. I figure this is because the H&M I go to is on the small side, I'm sure if I went to the big 3 storey one in Toronto i could find it. I may just have to do that because i need this dress. I have not been this obsessed with a piece I have been looking to purchase in a long time. There were a pair of studded biker boots that were supposed to be in the Joe Fresh fall/winter collection but they never hit shelves for reasons i do not know, i was disappointed about that. i was also disappointed when my mother would not allow me to get this vintage mini dress I found in a vintage store, (obviously) called "Sympathy for the Rebel." The dress was white with a deep red/mustard yellow almost tie-die lace overlay for the skirt, with a matching, (and attached) lacy micro vest. I know that sounds really busy, and probably a little ugly, but i assure you it was totally cute. The zipper was broken, but it was only $10 I still to this day wish i would have just gotten it. But I guess that's more a regret than an obsession. But i also got a really trippy floral "skort" that day, and discovered my favorite place to eat ever! (A vegan restaurant called "The Planet" yum! But uunfortunately it is at least an hour away from my house, and 40 minuets away from my cottage in the summer.) Whoa, how did I get so off topic? Anyway, to conclude I need that dress from H&M, it would be a perfect addition to my wardrobe. I love maxi-dresses right now, (unfortunately for my boyfriend) especially because they are easy to wear and always look very fashion forward. PS, the print on the dress is actually just the word "love" repeated over, and over. How cute is that?
