shine bright like a diamond

Since my love affair of menswear sweaters hasn't wavered in the slightest, I've finally started to buy them instead of "borrowing" them from other people's closets. If you are a long-time reader you have already seen a few items not-from-my-closet here and here. Credit goes to Bonnie for spotting this one in the men's section of Joe Fresh. I don't normally wear pink but this hot pink is the perfect bold colour to combat dreary winter days. It also adds a bit more of a feminine touch to the looser silhouette. Can you tell that there aren't any bright and bold colours that I shy away from?

I'm only 10 days away from getting the keys to my condo! While the commuting is taking a toll on me, Woodbridge is actually a really nice place to live. There are Italian bakeries everywhere (my clothes don't appreciate the easy access to Portuguese egg tarts and cannoli though) and you can feel a sense of community in the area. Out of the 5-6 times that I've walked home from the bus stop late at night, twice people have stopped their cars to ask me if I needed to be dropped off somewhere out of genuine concern. It's the simplest gestures that restores your belief in the kindness of strangers!

Have you received any random act of kindness lately?
