In case you want to follow along on my new adventure, I am blogging over at

I may post outfit posts here and there, but this new direction is focused more on healthy living as a whole. If you want to follow along, I would love to have you!

I am on Bloglovin' here: KNOWING KELLY
See you on the other side!


It's been about 3 months in the making, but I am officially calling a hiatus on blogging.

Right now there are just too many things happening in my life - most of them incredibly awesome - but they take up my time. And I just don't have the time to devote to blogging. I've lost inspiration, desire and the time needed to think up posts, photograph outfits, and the like.

I may be back. Who knows. This could be a temporary thing. The fact is I've found love in blogging, and may find it again some day. Just for now, life is getting in the way. And I'm not complaining.

You can still catch me on Twitter and Instagram though, I can't give those up ;) Plus I'll still be creeping your blogs; I'll never get tired of reading them.. So you'll see me around. I'm not gone for good.

Until next time.


The only thing constant in life is change.

According to Google, there are a few people who said this quote. The most common result is Fran├žois de La Rochefoucauld, so let's just stick with that. 

It's one of my favourite quotes. It's a constant reminder that at any moment, things can change. Your life can be different. What you know can become what you knew as you take a step away from a life you set.

I try to remember to...
Never take anything for granted.
Always appreciate the people you love.
And never be scared to walk a new path.

Life will always present a new path. Often when you least expect it.

This quote has inspired thoughts of a second tattoo for a while now. A triangle (delta), representing change. Just a little one, on my ankle. Maybe this summer.


So I'm blogging from my iPad. If this turns out all funky and weird, please forgive me.

I don't own much red, but when I saw this shirt I basically jumped on it. No idea why, but this awesome print caught my eye and I couldn't look away. Since then, I've been eyeing red just a little more. I've never been drawn to the colour but perhaps something is changing?

I feel spring in the air, too, which is pretty freaking awesome*. Can I get a hallelujah?

*and by feeling spring I mean the sun has come out to play a bit. No, it's not really any warmer...



Favourite new lipstick: Rebel by MAC.
Retirement is just around the corner.
My mornings. Although not anymore...more details shortly!
Fighting the cold in knits and a toque. Canadian, eh?
Favourite treat: Nutella and peanut butter on toast.
I'm testing out a little blogging on my iPad!

I'm thinking of taking the next big step of adult life and buying a car.
It's a big step, ladies. But it's becoming a necessary one. Mostly because I can't stand hanging out outside in -40 waiting for the bus. That shit ain't cool.

So here I am, totally lost and confused, trying to figure out if I should buy a car. There are so many things to consider. Do I want new or used? What model? What brand? What year? What colour? Mostly I've decided I want something cute and small, but from there I'm just about useless.

I'm going to Google it. Isn't that what you do when you make big decisions?


Look guys, I'm in a blanket fort.

Last time I wrote one of these posts was when I was pretty new to being roommate-less.
But now that it's been 8 months, I feel much more educated. I have a slightly refined perspective. More reasons why being roommate-less is awesome.

1. You can sing along to any song you want. You can quote any movie you're watching. And you don't piss anyone off. Yes, I love doing both those things. No, no one likes hearing other people do either of those things. You definitely don't want to be around when I'm watching Harry Potter or listening to Lorde.

2. Curry. I can cook with curry. No one is like "eww it stinks". Although, if they said it like that seriously, I might question their taste in everything. Point being, no one gets mad at me for loving Indian and Thai food. Awesome-possum.

3. The entire shower is mine. Every ledge. Every inch. My shampoo. My conditioner. MY body wash. No cramped space. My face wash doesn't fall off it's spot. There's room for everything in there.

4. My couch has become a coat-rack. Or a "drop your clothes off here when you're lazy". It's a good thing I don't often have visitors, or they'd have nowhere to sit.

5. When I'm not putting them on the couch, I can do weird things like hang my clothes on the fridge handle, or from the hanging light, or even from the front door. And it doesn't get in anyone's way but mine. And no one judges me for having an over-flowing closest.

What would you do if you didn't have a roommate?
