Featured Post: Glasses Mania!

You all know I’m a fan of glasses. I mean, I loves me my contacts but getting to bed at midnight and waking at 5:30 am is not always conducive to popping in lenses. That’s why I’ve been stocking up on frames as of late. And SmartBuyGlasses is at the top of my hit list for my next set of frames. I mean, take a gander at these awesome frames!

SmartBuyGlasses has a diverse collection of normal and prescription sunglasses and offers over 150 designer brands and a 100 day return policy. They also stock contacts and a wide range of frames for prescription glasses and (best of all), when you buy a pair of prescription lenses, they give a pair to someone in need – it’s all part of their “Buy One Give One” mission for better vision on a global scale. Happy shopping to me!

Two of my favourite accessories of late – a leopard print pendant that I received for Christmas and some gold studded bracelets. What accessories are you crushing on lately?

Look Out World, I'm a Motorist

More of the series of photos from my last post. What I didn’t reveal last time was that I recently got my learner's license (go me)…and shortly after these photos I successfully drove the car for a grand total of 30 minutes on an icy highway (and it’s a standard so I also learned all about shifting gears).

Yeah, first you master the PhD, then you learn to do something everything else had mastered by the time they were 17. Seriously, go me!

I’m throwing some major bitch face in these photos. Don’t worry, I’m aware. It was cold outside and we were driving all around the Alberta countryside in the Run DMC (that’s our car’s name – the DMC stands for “Driving Miss Courtney” because at 32, I’m sans license…my parents never owned a car or had a license and so I never had occasion to learn). As you can tell, I have a lot to be irritated about.

The Bitter Cold

More winter stylin’. Have I mentioned it was insanely cold here in early February? Sorry, I’ll stop complaining soon, I promise. Okay, I probably won’t…

At least today is Valentine's Day so maybe my helpmeet can warm me up a little today. Unfortunately I am in the midst of grading my students' first midterm so I don't have much time to spare for any fun Valentine's stuff...but I'm hoping we can at least squeeze in a romantic dinner.

Do you have any big Valentine's Day plans?

I love adding some punch to my office looks with a bright blazer – especially in the winter. Do you like adding some brightness to your winter looks?

Winter Stylin’

Edmonton is cold in the winter you guys. Like really cold. Six winters in Connecticut have not prepared me for a northern Alberta one at all. The last few days have been not too shabby but it was -40 with the wind chill in the not too distant past. WTF??

I Admit It, I'm Lazy

I wore this for my last day of work before the holiday break. Yeah, I know it was a while ago – it’s slow going on my photo processing over at Chateau Courtney. Gimme a break.

So I recently invested in what I consider to be the most awesome shirt and leggings ever. Ever. And I’m heading out for cocktails after a long, LONG, day of writing a lecture for the class I’m teaching. Yeah, I’m going to treat myself to a few cocktails I think.
