Favourite Friday: the August 5th edition – the (sort of) West Coast themed edition

August 5, 2011

L-A: I haven’t really been around all week. I sort of took the made up holiday (seriously? Civic holiday? Natal Day? Just give me Groundhog Day off and call it a deal) to be a reason to take most of the week off. I was busy at work, so it was nice to take a week break. Which brings me to my favourites:

1. the hilarious post from our West Coast Bureau.

I don’t see why our own posts can’t be favourites. I mean, really. Anthony totally made me laugh this week and that was awesome.

2. You Want Me to Wear What

One of my favourite blogs, also coming from the west coast, in which Amanda finds the most questionable things in fashion and hands them to you on a silver platter. Because without Amanda, you might never know that raves are still a thing and that a Steve Buscemi dress exists.

I know. And not even Boardwalk Empire Buscemi, but 5 o’clock shadow sleepy Buscemi. I don’t even know why this dress happened.

3. Zooey D + Jean-Ralphio (aka. Ben Schwartz):

I know Jill and I say it over and over again, but clearly, we were meant to be BFF with Zooey D. Before it was all about cuteness and dresses and lemonade and awesomeness. Now the adorableness was just taken up about seventeen levels with the addition of a ukulele and Jean-Ralphio. Now we really need to be her BFF. Like, it’s imperative. Or something.

4. Still obsessing over that show The Nine Lives of Chloe King.

You guys, I can’t even explain. It’s not just the swoony Pretend Boyfriend anymore. No, I am officially hooked on what is the cheesiest plot line since a cheerleader arrived to the town built on Hellmouth and started her destiny as a vampire slayer. So obsessed that I just had to write it out as a guest post for Jill (which is coming as soon as I take some screen shots for her). Perhaps a reason for us to visit the west coast?

5. This song may be the best song to do an invoice to.

Honestly, I could (and do) listen to this on repeat. My co-workers should be glad I have headphones. (speaking of which, I think I need new headphones. Thoughts on the giant headphones? Too much? I think I need them back in my life).

Also, Ally isn’t here and I can’t think of a crappy pop song. Unless we actually listen to Ke$ha.

It’s just not as good.

6. Sephora

It’s happening Halifax kids. Friday, August 12 at 9:30 a.m. We will be there. Plan your vacation days accordingly.

    Sephora in Halifax? Sweet! Now I won’t have to smuggle nail polish in and out of Buffalo every Christmas. ;) I’ll miss the opening since I’ll still be abroad, but when I get back… oh, the stocking up I shall do. (Seriously, they have some of the best nail polish ever.)

      They really do have the best nail polishes. I used to stock up on mini-bottles of sheer pink polish (which I have since found as an essie polish). Now we don’t have to hoard the good make up anymore! It’s just a bus ride away (for me at least).

      Also – welcome back to commenting! Hope overseas living is awesome.

    Wow, all your favorite things of the week seem to be my favorite things of the week, if you were to replace the crazy teen show with your review of the crazy teen show.

      I should get you to do a guest favourite Friday – because I know I’d like all your favourites.

      As for crazy teen show – it’s so ridiculous, but so awesome. I am actually looking forward to the next episode when Pretend Boyfriend throws a punch for cat girl. (sweet jesus I sound ridic…I need others to watch it so I feel less crazy).

    I want to tag along to Sephora opening. Really really a lot. Just putting it out there. :)

    And agreed, Anthony’s post should totally be a favourite. I almost spit tea all over computer at some of his captions. LOVED straight on till morning Wendy. Amazing.

      I say do it! FPQT Field Trip! We’ll throw in a stop at cinnabon and eat doughy goodies that make us feel bloated.

      Anthony kills it on the captions. I think I might want him to caption my life.
