Wise Word Wednesday

This week's Wise Word Wednesday is a little different, because it is an entire song! Yes, I mentioned Roar by Katy Perry in my post about songs I am loving right now, but I just can't get enough. This song is filled with wisdom, self-empowerment and encouragement.

Recent Pictures

 You might think I am weird...but I love a good work out!  30 Minute Hit has converted me!

 I just HAD to share this...if you go to Britney's website, she has a countdown!  What is she counting down until? A new song? New album? DETAILS please!

 Ok, cue the Full House theme song.  That was easily my favourite show growing up and when Candace Cameron tweeted me...I about died!
 What do you think of these chips? Caesar salad, perogy? There is a grilled cheese and ketchup one too!  Chips may be my vice, but these are a little too weird for me!
 A little Face of the Day.
 Sad day; my Kobo died.  What e-reader should I try next?
 My girlfriend gave me this mug for my birthday.  Perfection.
New cohost.

Songs on Repeat

I am just in heaven right now with so much great music being released!  Here are a few of the songs I have had on repeat lately: 

I am also loving the EP from Lorde which I recently reviewed.

What songs are you listening to lately?

Nail of the Day

Fun fact about my radio co-host?  He has great taste in nail polish.  No joke!  Ok, he actually just chooses polish based on their funny names, but the colours he has given me have all been wins so far!  You can find the first polish he gave me here.
This colour is OPI's Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh?  Clearly he picked it for the name!  But I am happy he did because I am in love with this neutral.  It would be a fabulous shade for a professional setting or a job interview.  But I think it's also just a great colour to have on to look polished and put-together.  It has a nice creamy opacity and has lasted well on my nails that aren't in the best of condition.  Love it!

Wise Word Wednesday

This is a card my friend Loni gave me for my birthday.  It now sits in my bathroom to remind me every morning.  I love this quote!

I Got a Tattoo!

If you have been following me for a while, or if you follow me on Pinterest, then you will know I have been thinking about getting a tattoo for a few years.  I already have three, but have wanted a fourth for probably the past four or so years.  I talk more about it here
Well, I did it!  I decided to go for it to commemorate my 30th birthday.  When I started to research where to go, the one place that kept coming up was Adrenaline.  It coincidentally was in the same block as our hotel, which sealed the deal!  I figured since Jeremy and I were already planning a day and overnight in Vancouver without Thomas, this was my perfect opportunity. I could not rave more about Adrenaline.  They were great beforehand making sure to receive the image I wanted and to book me in at my convenience.  Then on site, it was so clean I felt as though I was in a doctor's office.  The staff was friendly and helpful, putting me at ease.  

I have always wanted the word "love" and always wanted something more visible.  So I went for it!  This specific drawing is an exact copy of a photo I took of the statue in Love Park in Philadelphia.  It's a place Jeremy and I have been many times and has special meaning for me.  As you know, the quote "there is only love" is something that was been repeating itself to me in the past couple years and this tattoo is perfect. 

I am THRILLED with the outcome and wanted to share a short video of it happening:

Lorde: She's How Old?!?!

Don't judge me on this.  But I absolutely LOVE days when I discover a new artist or hear a song and instantly fall in love.  It's the music nerd in me.  I can remember loving Katy Perry, Adele and Lady Gaga before they were mainstream.  In fact, when Katy Perry's first album came out, I couldn't find it for sale anywhere in my town because she wasn't well known.  
Oh how that has changed;)
I have a new artist that I think you will like.  Her name is Lorde and she is 16.  Wait, what?  That's right.  Listen to her EP The Love Club and you won't believe she's in her teens.  She sounds like a well-lived, woman with extensive heartbreak and experience.  Her voice is beautiful, her lyrics original and her sound unique.  There are only five songs on The Love Club but I can't stop listening to it.  It's relaxing but at the same time pumps me up.
Interestingly enough, as I write this blog post, her EP is suddenly in the top ten on iTunes Canada.  Perhaps others are starting to spread the word too.  
For less than five dollars, Lorde has provided hauntingly great music and left me wanting more.
Here's just a taste:

Sheer Joy

I guess when both of your parents are radio announcers this was bound to happen.

In My Absence

I realize posts haven't been going up as frequent as usual, but I have been using my vacation as a good excuse to not spend as much time on the computer.  A little digital break was in order and feels pretty great! But, I thought I would share a few sneak peeks as we continue our trip:
Thomas enjoyed his first bowling experience.
 He also loved the snacks after.
 Jer took me on a three day getaway to Vancouver and Whistler for my birthday. 
 He also treated me to tickets for The Legends of the Summer Tour with Justin Timberlake and Jay Z.
 I loved my first trip to Whistler. 
 Jeremy pretended to be an Olympian and shot a perfect round in the biathlon.
More pictures, videos and details to come!
