Ria goes to her First Ever Baby Shower!

Today I went to my first ever baby shower & it was a lot of fun! I don’t have a lot of friends in Toronto who have kids so I don’t really get invited to a ton of baby showers!


The radiant mom to be and CAKE! OM NOM NOM!

It was a baby shower for one of the nicest, kindest souls that I have the pleasure of being friends with. Emily I love you so much and you are going to be an incredible mom!

I met Emily about 4.5 years ago now through twitter. She is a Toronto based jewelry designer and all around awesome lady! Check out her creations —> HERE <—


It’s blurry but just LOOK at me having a really good time :p

Up close and personal with the cake because that’s just how I roll! 


gaaaah how cute are these straws?


baby shower favours!

Baby shower favours for everyone to take home – handmade soup that says from Ruby Shower to yours! How cute!

If you haven’t guessed by now, the theme of the shower was flamingoes and it is a girl! Congratulations Em and Alan! I can’t wait to meet your little bundle of joy and babysit her!

P.S: We played games and I actually won one of them! HUZZAH!




They never do get you anywhere, now do they? We all lie from time to time. Don’t even bother denying it. You know you have. Heck, I know I have.

None of us are perfect but there is a line that shouldn’t be crossed, people who shouldn’t be hurt and things that shouldn’t be said or done.

When you claim to love someone, why lie?

You are sitting in a cafe, with your head in your hands, the cold wind sends chills up and down your spine. You shiver but the storm that is raging inside you renders you motionless, so much so that you do not even want to move to a warmer spot.

You sit and you wonder. Why are they lying to you? Is it necessary?

You start to question yourself. Do I intimidate him? Why does he feel the need to lie to me? All I ever did was to love him. Is that such a bad thing? You sit and wonder and that’s precisely what you have been doing for the past few months.

Every time you muster up the courage to call him out on his lies, something gets in the way. Maybe it’s your need to be loved or maybe you are just plain stupid, you can’t decide which.

All you know is that you love him and that you are afraid. So very afraid.

Afraid to lose him. Afraid that no one will care. Afraid that everything will cease to make sense.

Afraid. Yes, that’s what you are. Why though?

Musings from another time – ‘Being 17, Ughness, Blahness and the likes of it’

I am reading Bridget Jones’s Diary for the umpteenth time and I wanted to share this with you guys. Enjoy.


P.S: This was my first ever blog post… ok now enjoy!


October 19, 2004

Exams are over… woohoo… gonna drop one subject… can’t stand it anymore… hmmm I don’t know what I want to be… sometimes I think I really wanna be a doctor but at other times I think I am going to be an engineer or join mass communications.

haha to be honest, I don’t know what is going to become of me. I am still in shock that I managed to get an A level pass for my maths! I was ready to fail.

Today Mr. S came up to me and scared me by saying ‘ how much do you think you got for maths?’ I was like, ‘well you should know since you marked it!’ then he said I passed. At that moment I wanted to get up and start dancing but then he asked me how I did for other subjects and my inflated ego was immediately deflated. I told him even though the grades this year were super shitty.

S texted me saying he wants to get to know me better.. hmm then N told me to just reply that how can he get to know me when he didn’t even dare approach me when he saw me in school… hmm I hope it wasn’t too harsh because it’s not very nice to hurt others.

Well J was online today. G too. I asked G if I should wish him, she said go ahead. I did and he didn’t even say thanks. oh sob sob sob. Never mind, it is ok. I feel bad but it is ok. I guess he has his own good reasons but I just want to be friends man! hmmm never mind. Ok this is getting so crappy. gtg


Horrors! I had to edit the post massively to make it readable and I used to say things like ‘gtg’ a lot! It’s a miracle that I managed to get an A for my A levels English! (show off!)

And I am neither a doctor nor an engineer. I am a writer/techie (or however you spell that!)


A Page From My Diary



She was torn between doing the right thing and the wrong thing that felt so right.

‘Is the right thing really all that right?’ she asked herself, ‘or could it be that I am just imagining things?’

Lea hated her awkwardness at times and this was definitely one of those times.

She couldn’t believe she was the same person anymore. Who was this person really? All her life she had taken carefully measured steps, so what had changed in just a few months?

Just a couple of months ago she would have given up the world for James but now her memories and thoughts were clouded by visions of Christopher.

Christopher was all that James wasn’t; smart, refreshing and delightful. It was all in the eyes, she told herself. She wasn’t quite sure where this was going to take her but she was willing to find out…
