What does a green amazon lumberjack wear exactly?

I want to begin by apologizing for my lack of new content. I moved into my university residence on Sunday and I've had a few issues since then. At first we didn't have internet in the building because it is brand spanking new and they hadn't quite gotten around to it yet. Then, when we DID have internet, my laptop decided to break and refuse to connect to the internet. So five days and $60 I am!

I don't actually start class until Monday, which means that this week is orientation week (AKA frosh week!). The freshman class was divided into four colour teams: the green amazons, gold genies, blue gladiators and red celtics. I am a proud green amazon! There's alot of cheering and alot of fun! I have spent the past five days in green clothing and animal print. A few feathers and fake greenery were added accessories. This brings me to the lumberjack part. My residence mascot is the lumberjack. I must's an awesome mascot! I see alot of plaid in my future! So that's what a green amazon lumberjack wears. It's not my usual style but I'm loving it just the same!

It's really starting to cool down here which means more shopping for fall clothes! I'll let you know how that works out for me!

**Come to the jungle and you will see, Amazons hunt their enemy! Amazons! SACRIFICE! Amazons! SACRIFICE!**

Bright Lights, Big Style in Links a la Mode

A few days ago I submitted my post "Losing Style in Fashion" for the Links a la Mode Weekly Roundup on the Independent Fashion Bloggers website. It was a huge surprise to see my post on the list and I am completely ecstatic! It's great to see my post in the company of such amazing bloggers. I'm so glad I was included! So here it is--Links a la Mode!

The End of Summer? No! The Beginning of Awesome!

Edited by: Thom of The Sunday Best

For the past week I've been listening to Cee-Lo Green's fantastic send-off, F@#* You,  and little else. At the same time I've been reading a lot of the  hand-wringing in the press about bloggers and whatever are we going to  do about them, along with our responses both here and on our blogs. And  the two have combined in my head to form a single determination -  bloggers need more swagger. I don't mean anger, of the  you-don't-respect-us variety, or apologetics, of the  we-are-as-legitimate-as-other-media variety. I mean swagger, the kind of  swagger that comes from doing something well and knowing you're good at  it. So whatever other themes might knit together this week's links,  they all share that important characteristic - swagger. Step up to the  plate, knock it out of the park.
