Glamover – It’s like a hangover, but glam by hallaek

No better time than as the holidays approach to relax, spend time with friends, and (if one is of legal age, of course) partake in an alcoholic beverage, or eight. You’re not like all the rest, though. When you go to a holiday party, heads turn. As you weave through the room various people grab your arm, asking where you got that and how you thought to pair velvet with sneakers — you’re just too fabulous, perhaps even for life itself.

So the night ends and you won the eggnog chugging contest, which was easy as you were the sole participant, but what does this tell of the future? Surely the morning after tossing back festive liquor won’t be a nice one, in fact it’ll likely be a naughty one, but either way this is you and you will not partake in this hangover nonsense. There is hope for you, oh breathtakingly cool one, as hangover’s got a new friend: her name is ‘Glamover’ and she is fierce, just like you.

Glam-o-ver (noun):

  1. Ill effects caused by drinking an excess of alcohol whilst being fabulous.
  2. A fabulous thing that has survived from the past.

Google definitions don’t lie.

The curse of glamover sufferers is that outsiders assume our morning-after pain is lesser than theirs, which is not true, it just looks better aesthetically. Underneath the sunnies, fur, and jewelry are the deafening moans of a very hungover person.

Make your hangover fab. Make it a glamover.



TORNADO TIME by hallaek

So perhaps the title of this post is a tad dramatic, but we did get some pretty awesome sights last night. I decided to consume an entire bottle of wine at dinner so such sights were even awesomer for moi. My look last night was created with the intention of seeming to be ‘bad-ass’ and to scare people – obviously did not happen. But Tila did buy her first pack of cigs, literally with the intention to look cool, but they were gross so that was that. And off we went to the Keg Mansion.
We also found Toronto Stonehenge and the gate just opens…

F looking at the camera.

Pigeon Sex by hallaek

Two big male pigeons were cooing very loudly and biting a female’s face in what I can only imagine is a BDSM-pigeon mating ritual. Spring has sprung, people…and pigeons.
And Scream 4 (I realize I’m late, bite me – like the pigeons?) Anyway, Scream 4 was the best movie I’ve seen ever. Hear that? Film connoisseurs everywhere are ready to gut me like a fish, 2011 styles. As a serious Scream fan this movie gave me everything I was looking for, and then some. Wes Craven, please plan my wedding.

And no, I’m not going to discuss the Royal Wedding, because I don’t care. Yeah, yeah, the royalists will get me, too. But I am wearing white long sleeves in these pictures – I’m pretty much the Duchess of Cambridge.

Before I lost my shadow.

MMMATERIALISM… by hallaek

Today I heard on TV that consuming is fine, it’s when it becomes over-consumption that we get stuck in endless circles of wanting which leaves us feeling unhappy. Well, no object has ever made me feel unhappy (except that one time a pair of them twisted my ankle, the devils) so I’m just going to continue with this post then skip in a field of daisies surrounded by my stuff. Singing. Moving on… I’ve been watching too much of the History Channel, I needed a break, I love Picnik, I did this:

Not my greatest creation, but my collage program is hard to use if you don’t get lucky and have pictures that magically work together. Nothing will ever beat Paint on Windows…the only part of my old Sony laptop (so humorously named “PinkTaco” cause she was pink and it’s a laptop – figure it out) that I miss. You can figure out that this is a wish list, I intend to wear the sandals with tights, ya know, should I acquire them. They’d just make me so tall! Scary tall! Awesome. The rest is pretty weather appropriate for the coming months so no explanation needed. Of course good ol’ Tom Binns makes another appearance now that the pieces of his I actually like are available online; thank you, Luisaviaroma and Net-a-Porter. Alright, back to neck straining chair drawing and the History Channel.



“I thought it was glamorous and that I’d meet beautiful women in the rain” by hallaek

It’s raining. I’m supposed to be reading. …I’m not. My ankle is mostly healed, so this means many pictures to come because I’m no longer in a no-heel-wearing-induced-depression. But for now…I spent far too long making this (and it maybe got a bit out of hand):



Play-date activities by hallaek

I get bored easy. I don’t have a job. I do have an internship, and I’m doing a show, and classes, and have started dance and working out (woah), and I do shop quite a bit, but those who get bored easily know. All it takes is 20 minutes of nothing and I start whining to Tila via text messages. So apparently her and Christianne started brainstorming activities for me which ended up on a website with lists of what to do with kids during the day. I would be slightly offended, if I didn’t think most of the activities sounded like fun. Day 1: Bata Shoe Museum. I’ve been there many, many, many times (back when I was an actual “kid” and my parents would split time between the different museums and zoos and let me run around, all around, really, really fast!) My moms for the day…they’re not going to like that…had never been. Remember the first time you knew something that your parents didn’t? And how proud you were because they’re adults and you’re still little? Yeah, it was like that.

My moms (teehee) think they’re really casual, and us kids always want to make our parents happy, so the captions are casually for them, casually.

I had just come from an interview which is why I’m dressed that way, but those shoes are actually pretty comfortable except for the heel on the right foot is a bit weak so after a while it rubs, nothing Dr. Scholl’s can’t fix! Speaking of shoes, heard back from Miu Miu and those shoes from the last post are beautiful indeed, but our love affair may be put on hold. They are extremely expensive and there’s no trying and seeing and potentially returning, and I can’t justify spending that much on shoes I’ve never seen in person or been able to try on. Give me a shout if you see them on sale or for realsy? Great.

In the mean time, nOir Jewelry has some new ring styles up, and they’re very affordable. But which one? So conflicted…

Decisions, Decisions...

Perhaps convince Mom she should get the baby one (whole OBGYN thang) get the dog for my dog and then…well you see where I’m going with this. It’s like world domination. With rings.

P.S. I mean it this time, what should I name new cat bracelet animal friend?

P.P.S. Look! How cool! Chanel Hand Ring!
