Hey all you crazy kids, I've kinda been taking a holiday this week. Mainly, my daily activities have consisted of; drinkin' tea, eatin' candy, watchin' the Olympics (but only the figure skating, and only for the sequin costumes), knittin' a sweater and doin' some homework.
So here is a story. When I was in high school, I would obsessively cut up magazines, take out my favourite pages and create these huge 'inspiration' books. I managed to fill up four of these composition books with amazing photographs, and they are so much fun to look back on. I can see just how much my tastes have changed and grown, as well as remember some of my favourite stories and editorials as a teenager. Sometimes reflecting on these things makes me feel old, but most of the time it just makes me nostalgic and happy. Here are some of my absolute favourite inspiration pages.
Sequins and Elizabethan ruffs in Teen Vogue

I had a brief yet strange obsession with jet packs in Grade 11.
