Recipe Flop: Zucchini, Potato & Onion Tortilla

Last week I got home after my night class and, despite being tired and over-hungry, decided to be ambitious and start a new recipe. From the start, this was a bad call. I chose the recipe from The Vegetarian Student Cookbook that my best friend was sweet enough to give me when I moved out.…

U.S. of Tara: Gone but Not Forgotten

It’s always sad when things end. It’s even sadder when they are ended pre-maturely. United States of Tara was one of those things.       The series starred Toni Collette as a woman struggling with multiple personalities (dissociative identity disorder). Strange, well-written with a solid cast and plenty of heart and humor, the series aired for…

New Art?

I call it shock value for publicity, but to each his own. [ Today’s post is short and sweet for a ‘LOL’ – this week seems longer than usual and I know I could use one! ] _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ “Miley harnessed into something very special. She’s just Miley. She’s an artist, she’s real. I think that’s…

I’d been in the shop before, only having purchased a soft/loose-fitting hoodie, but never really realized how each of their items conformed to the one size system. American Apparel has come under criticism in the past…

Msed Out: MS MR

Last week my friends and I missed the MS MR (excuse my title, my new friends have got me punning) concert in Toronto. Either they’re the most efficient band ever to play a live show or I have grossly misremembered my concert-going days. While I can’t comment on their live performance, I think they’re worth…

Fast Food: Pita Pizzas

Everyone who’s been a student or anyone who’s busy knows the value of a speedy meal. Easy prep, quick clean up and a filling feast are top priority for people with a stack of readings and no time to spare. One of my favourite fast meals is the pita pizza. I use pasta sauce after…

Review: The Bling Ring

Last weekend I finally got around to watching The Bling Ring. It’s a Sophia Coppola film with (obviously) a killer soundtrack that stars Emma Watson and Taissa Farmiga. You’ve already heard about my love for Emma Watson and I’m a big American Horror Story fan. Leslie Mann also makes an appearance, which is always a…
