almost 2009.
364 days of life.
what a year!

christmas in canada. move from social work degree to fashion. bf finishing his specialization. internship in new york. new friends. friends having babies. besties travelling the world. many tears. millions of laughs. heatwaves. personal growth. my new love for coffee. re-discovering bikram. accumulating more shoes than i thought was possible. spring & fall 08 runway shoes. giving + sharing.
sex&thecitymovie. countless HOURS spent on style.com. reading a collection of amazing & life changing books. spending $$$ on hundreds of magazines. home improvements. diy's. spring cleaning 75% of my closet. music that followed me through each and every day. THIS blog & so much more...

so much to be thankful for...and so much to look forward to.

well it is FREEZING outside. so all my pictures have to be taken before I bundle up like a mad woman!
my girlfriends have been coming and going, so i think i have been on over a dozen coffee dates within the past few days. so bitter. sweet.

I braved the elements and wore my topshop booties out.
they are INSANELY high with the added platform on the sole, but surprisingly very stable.
maybe it helps that i used to dance on pointe shoes for ballet ?

wishing everyone a happy + safe next few days.
2009 here we come...

Hey you cheeseball

Internship! Woah, is that why you're off to new york during fashion week? Interesting! :D Oh sounds like fun!

I love the boots. They look insanely difficult to walk in. I can't even imagine, especially because of the weather over there. But you know, a fashionista like you can pull of some magic! Got some tricks up in your sleeves huh? Or that dancing really paid off ;)

You are truly amazing Lisa! I'm so glad I've gotten to know you :D Have a splendid new years eve and a splendid 2009!
I wish you the best!

Cheers babe!

Hey you,
Canadian winter's make anything with a heel impossible to wear.... I always get my shoes man to place a rubber bottom on all of the high heeled winter shoes, lol.Just to be safe...lol
I don't know, but I think that there's something really magical about Canadian winters...

As for the New Years.... I wish you a Happy New Year and hope that it brings you unlimited joy and happiness!!!

Kisses.... Happy New Year!!!!

Been staring at this box for a while now, which only ever happens when I'm left speechless, which is a pretty regular occurance when it comes to you, because your kindness just leaves me speechless again and again!

I've been blessed so much, by you, even in the semi-short time I've known you. Thanks for your friendship, all your kind, encourging words! I've met few people with hearts as warm and big as yours! :)

Blessings to you and your family for the upcoming new year! Oh and did I almost forget to say, gorgeous outfit? Love it, so effortlessly chic, and looks nice and warm too! <3

Ben istanbuldan selda 22 yaşında konfeksiyon içşisiyim Amatör Porno sizleri bekletmeden hemen hikayeme geçiyorum.. Biz 5 katlı bir binanın en üst katında yaşıyorduk ve bir öğlen paydosunda sevgilim beni Anal Sikiş aradı evdeydim çünkü evle iş yerim arasında 2 dakika bile yoktu.. Bende Asyalı Porno sevgilime benden telefon beklemesini söyledikten sonra evin durumuna baktım evde kardeşlerim ve annemin Esmer Porno birkaçtane arkadaşı vardı bu iş imkansızdı tekrardan düşündüm ve çatı katı aklıma geldi sevgilime telefon açıp çatıya çıkmasını ve Fantazi Porno beni beklemesini söyledikten sonra telefonu bir süre elime almadım anneme işe gidiyorum dedikten sonra Gay Porno hemen üst kata çatıya çıkıp sevgilimin
dudaklarına yumuldum az bir süremiz Götten Sikiş vardı ve çok istiyordum onu hemen önünde diz çöküp sikini çıkardım kocaman olmuştu bile... Özlemişti beni HD Porno bitanem başladım sikini yalamaya kafasını öpüyor onu çıldırtıyordum sevgilim saçlarımdan tutmuş ağzımı keyifle sikerken çatı katının kapısı açıldı toparlanamadan Lezbiyen Porno komşunun şişman oğlu efecan gelmişti ben dizlerimin üzerinde sevgilimin Liseli Porno siki ağzımda yakalanmıştım hemen bu halimizi gören komşu oğlu Sarışın Sikiş kaçarcasına gitti.. Sevgilim bir süre güldükten Türbanlı Porno sonra bu şişko neden kaçtı korktu herhalde onu sikicem sandı galiba dedikten sonra bir kahkaha daha attı ben sevgilimin Türk Porno sikine deli gibi saldırıyor yalıyor emiyordum boşalmasını istiyor Zenci Porno sütünü içmek istiyordum sevgilim ağzımı sike sike boşaldı hepsini yuttum bir damlasını ziyan Porno etmedim ve sevgilimle vedalaşıp ayrıldık... Ben her defasında sikiş yapmadan önce yazporno diye olan türkçe siteden Porno izle bölümüne girip seyrediyorum azdıktan sonra şahane sikiş ile gözleri kamaştırıyorum.
