New Dawn, New Day

After a series of interesting (or uninteresting) events last night, I decided to put the past behind me and look forward to the future!

I was thinking a new dawn, a new day! Right? WRONG! I woke up this morning on the bad foot. First, I couldn't wake up to my 4:45 AM Alarm, thank god training was not till 6:30 AM (so missed my half hour cardio but what the hey right? I'll make it up this afternoon).

Then I thought, "getting paid today" BONUS! Right? WRONG! I realised with the slew of bills and upcoming expenses, I am more broke then when I was a student! How is that possible? (Ok I do know - Mortgage etc is taking me for a ride). So after careful consideration for my bank account and peace of mind, I will be unable to spend a DIME on any type of clothing (whether is actually clothing, jackets, accessories, boots, shoes etc). And will have to rely on my own cunning at concocting outfits from the pieces I have - which is totally doable, However, I will not be able to have some of those "Must have" spring or summer pieces this year. Which is were all of you come in! So far I have been extremely good with my money I have not purchased a single item that wasn't deemed a necessity (i.e. shampoo, toothpaste, soap...that sort of thing) for the month of February. I will need all of you to help me with this! To stay on track and for those of you who are my friends and know me or live in the city and feel like "donating" some of your gently worn articles (ANYTHING) your discarded items can become my treasure! The reason why I will have to be diligent is because of this Fitness competition. Since I preparing for 2 in one day, my money will be spent on training fees, nutrition counselling and of course my custom made bikinis.

And then I got to work...Thinking everything was fine, that nothing worse could happen, EXCEPT that it could. I was bent over with excruciating pain that I had to leave work early and hobble on home like a grandma rather than to a walk-in clinic because the scrooge that I am decided to LEAVE the wallet at home (which has the Health Insurance Card) meaning that I had to venture back out and somehow manage to get to a clinic without collapsing on the side streets of Downtown Ottawa.

Nevertheless, I managed to take a picture of my outfit...
What I am wearing...





















Dress: Express (c/o - my fab sister who does shopping for me while she is studying in Boston!)
Sweater: Forever 21 (Gifted from my Sister)
Belt: Club Monaco
Jewellery: Pearls found at a Flea Market in Toronto


Friends if I am alive tomorrow I will let you know.

Sincerely,
N
