Love It & List It

 My name’s Michela and I’m a listaholic. (Que chorus of “Hi, Michela.“) The fact that I just made up the word listaholic  doesn’t take away from the fact that I am utterly addicted to the process of making lists, checking things off lists, and collecting useful (and not-so useful) lists from around the interwebs.

And so dear readers, have I got a treat for you. Here are 10 glorious lists I’ve been collecting for the past while that are just begging to be shared. It’s a LIST OF LISTS!!

  1. An amazing guide for styling my new short ‘do: 4 DIY Hairstyles For Cropped Cuts
  2. I’m turning 25 in August of this year (what the whaaat?!) so I’m loving this list from Thought Catalog: 25 Things To Do Before You Turn 25
  3. Igniting my wanderlust for the year: 52 Places To Go In 2014
  4. I’ve seen a few of these already (and loved ’em) so I’m stoked to check out the rest of these: 25 Spectacular Movies You (Probably) Haven’t Seen
  5. Helpful tips for my goal of fluency en Français: 22 Tips For Learning A Foreign Language
  6. Buzzfeed made an amazing list about my favourite human of the year here: 51 Times In 2013 Jennifer Lawrence Proved She Was Master Of The Universe
  7. … and one that looks extremely promising for my goal of 52 books in 52 weeks: 16 Books To Read Before They Hit Theaters This Year
  8. One for the guys: 24 Rules For Being A Gentleman in 2014
  9. I’m hoping this will be the year I finally get some permanent body art. Loving these tiny tatts: 74 Of The Tiniest, Most Tasteful Tattoos Ever
  10. Having just finished my Fashion Merchandising diploma from Blanche, I’m super eager to get started in the industry. I imagine I’ll be looking back to this list quite often: 40 Things To Remember When Fashion Gets Too Much

Growin’ Up

I spent last weekend relaxing with my family out in Radium, BC where we spent the better part of 24 hours consuming amazing food, wine, great stories and celebrating both Easter and my grandparents’ 55th wedding anniversary. I was quickly mesmerized by the family album my mom complied for the occasion; 100 photos filled with memories of our families growing up. The following 2 photos didn’t make the album cut, but they were too hilarious not to share. Hopefully you enjoy them as much as I do!


Though my brother seems unfazed by my pouring water on his head, apparently someone scolded me for doing so and I was definitely not happy about it.


Happy Tuesday everyone!

I saw this a few weeks ago and as somewhat of a chronic bitch-face myself, couldn’t resist re-posting it here. Brilliantly drawn by Kristina over at Kris Atomic.
