So it's fun to have those friends on blogs that you can always rely on to comment on your posts, but it gets REALLY exciting when you get a chance to meet-up with a long-time virtual friend :)
Katrina, the girl behind The Demure Muse, has been on my radar for years now, as a fellow blogger, tweeter & etsian. We're not only mutual fans of each others work (check out Anirtak jewelry!), we also found out over time that we have a ton in common!
- We tweet, blog & sell our handmade stuff on etsy
- We're both nerdy girls who went to university for engineering (I dropped out, she's graduating this year)
- We have found that we have some mutual friends
- & We both have our septums pierced but we have them hidden (!!!)
She happened to be the lucky winner of our second L&B giveaway with this adorable picture getting an amazing 163 votes!
Katrina won a skull cut-out tee from us & suggested that instead of shipping it to her that we should meet up downtown! Our plan was basically to walk the typical strip along the route of the Eaton Centre & Queen Street and do a bit of Chinatown & Kensington Market. We managed to trek all over town chit-chatting so much as we went that we both forgot why our bags were so heavy. We were both carrying (and not using) our heavy-ass Canon Rebel DSLRS. such nerds. We did take just a couple of shots though-- although the one thing I wish that we had captured was when our waitress at the Pho restaurant served another table by lying across ours. I was too shocked to react. hahahah
syl & kat! (at this point, my hair had been biebered by the wind. oh god no.)
this is the only photographic proof of our meeting! eeek!

our 'outfit' shots. (aka layers & layers of black and grey clothing)
notable items: my new pewter doc martens from matt & katrina's yeti mittens from her sis!
our trek around town was focused in the major shopping areas of town... but really the only thing we bought was lunch & then these waffle things. mmmmm.
ANYHOW, today was so fun & meeting Katrina was amazing. HI KATRINA!
I just gave her the skull cut-out tee in grey & a L&B recycled fabric tote bag & I really didn't expect her to bring me something.
But being such a sweetheart, I should have expected a little gift from her! Katrina had of course done a little bit of creeping on my Etsy Favourites & found that I had liked her Secret Love Letter Necklace so she brought one for me! :) ... the only thing I'm wondering is-- why didn't mine come with a sexy love note Kat?! HUH?! lol
here are a couple pics of me sporting it tonight! I'll treasure it forever :)
