elle oh vee eeeeee.

I love smelling the roses.
I love eating the chocolate.
I love the big teddy bears.
Just kidding.
I
Don't.
Really.

Wow . I'm such a poet; this is my freestyle poetry. Quite deep stuff, I know. I think it's very symbolic of, ermm, anyways. I basically don't really like Valentine's Day (I categorize it as "neutral," along with the likes of New Years, Birthdays, and, well, lots of holidays because I'm grinch). But, I thought I'd do a Valentines-y post because uhh... Go love! Woot, woot!

The artistic idea behind this picture was to invoke the image of a dead doll, representing umm... Um. Well, not actually. But let's pretend. Because then I succeeded. At looking like a dead doll, that is. So, yessss?

Irony: this outfit was 100% NOT intended to be Valentine's-esque. (From last weekend, in fact.)

And more irony? This heart on my face? NOT PLANNED. Unexciting story behind it: I was the volunteer for face painting and practiced on my face. I think it should be a new trend.

Because I'm.... Fierce? Urhhh, don't answer that.

Going for a fuzzy theme. Because it has to do with how Valentine's day invokes cuddles and um. OKAY FINE. This outfit/ shoot had no thought process behind it. I'm just trying to sound intellectual. JEEEEEZ.

Anyways, obviously I love Valentine's Day* (slash not really but shhh). I'll just say Happy Valentine's Day! And leave it at that. More Irony (because that seems to be the underlying them of this post): there will be a second part to this post because apparently I'm just full of love...

Thanks for stopping by!
Any great plans for YOUR Vday? (If you didn't guess, I didn't do much!)

*While I'm wishing y'all a happy Valentine Day, I might as well go for the: Happy Olympics begin (go Canada, ehh?!)! Happy NYFW begins (Favourite shows thus far?)! Happy Chinese New Years (Go red bags!)! Happy Family Day (Go Random Canadian Holidays!)! Happy Black History Month!
Pheeeew. I think that covers it all.
