I've set up my closet/personal space room and maybe I'll do a room tour of it! But here's what I've been up too the last couple weeks!

Lonely

Sunday, November 17, 2013
So we've officially moved into our new home! We've slowly started renovating the home to look the way Israel and I want and it's starting to look amazing!

But I've been extremely lonely. Moving out meant leaving behind my dogs with my parents. I miss them like crazy, especially Marble Jolens. He's been my best friend since I've gotten him. I've spent almost everyday with him since June 2001 and it's been extremely hard not being able to see him everyday - to give him hugs and kisses, snuggle and talk too!

As soon as we were done painting our home, Israel had to go back to work. Working 12 hours, shift work. I've been feeling a bit sad, scared and lonely. I'm not used to being by myself for so long. Before moving out, I had my mom, my sister, my dogs. But now, here I am sitting in a dark room, watching a movie all by myself like I've been doing the last 4 days.

I feel like I shouldn't be feeling this way - I've recently found an amazing job and I've moved out. But I don't feel all that happy.

Hopefully I can kick this feeling soon. I hope I start feeling the way I should considering how great my life has been treating me.

Inspiration Wednesday - Anniversaries

Wednesday, November 13, 2013
Tomorrow will be Israel's and I 4th anniversary! How time flies! It hasn't felt like four years at all! But in these 4 years we've both accomplished so much together - the good; graduating from Chemical Engineering Technology together, traveling, moving out and the bad. My life has been amazing since the day I met him.

Inspiration Wednesday - Growing Old

Wednesday, November 06, 2013
Happy Birthday to The Cassie Paige. Another year gone by, another year older. I don't feel like I'm getting older. I feel like I'm wasting away my life. At 25, what have I done!?

Well here's hoping for a better year!

Memories

Friday, November 01, 2013
Have you've ever come across old pictures, looked at them and then realized that you no longer know any of those people in tbe pictures? I seem to have a flood of old pictures and memories, thanks to my good, old, trusty photo albums.

I've had a lot of people come and go in my life and sometimes I regret not holding on long enough to those friends and the memories that came with it. But then I start to wonder, why was that friendship, those memories, not worth holding on too? But maybe that's just life. Maybe life allows people into your life for only a certain amount of time, to help set you on your path, to help guide you. Because, honestly, you wouldn't have gotten where you are today if it weren't for some of the decisions you made because of these people, whether they were good or bad decision and whether they were people you regret losing or people you're glad to have walked away.

Yet, I look back and I miss the memories so much. The friends, the good times, the memories, the laughs, the places we'd go and the trouble we'd get into. I used to be the type of person who would pick up the phone and have a conversation with any friend for hours. I could do it with anyone and everyone I knew. I would be the type of person that if I saw a friend walking in the mall, I would run up to them and catch up! But I'm no longer that person - I don't have a ton of people I want to call to discuss my life or problems and I don't run into a lot of people I would want to catch up with.

And then I start to think - was it me? Was I the reason that so many people have walked away? I've made a lot of choices where I had to decide over one person or the other and some decisions I regret. I've lost a lot of great friends. But that's life again - allowing you to decide your path. Then I start to realize, because I've let go of such great people, I've come to reach a better path - the path I'm on now. I wouldn't say that my life is exactly where I want it to be, there are some things that I wish I could do differently - but I am beyond grateful for the people who I have in my life now.

I have found the greatest person to love, good friends, and I figured out a little more about myself. As I picture each and every person who has come into my life only to walk away, vanish from the thoughts, I can't help but thank you. Thank you for being my friend (and maybe even my best friend) at some point in my life - celebrating my birthdays with me, comforting me when I needed you at that time, creating many wonderful memories, fighting and arguing with me - you've helped me grow, become strong and discover the traits of what a true friend is. Thank you to all the ex-boyfriends - you've all helped me discover what I want in a man, how I deserve to be treated and that I won't settle for anyone except for the greatest. And an even bigger thanks to myself - even though at times it was hard to see why I decided to let go of so many people, it only helped myself to open my eyes to the deceitful people, the liars, the people who only pretended to be my friends, the ones who decided to turn away from me when I longer catered to them - the ones that were no longer worth fighting for.

Israel ♥

Sunday, October 27, 2013
In the last (almost) 4 years Israel and I have been together, we have never been more than a day away from each other. This week, Israel has to go to Texas for a week for fire fighting training and I'm absolutely heart broken! I never really realized how much I love spending time with Israel and how much it breaks my heart to be away from him.

It's hard waking up in the morning knowing he's not there, it's weird not seeing him when I wake up in the middle of the night and going to sleep at night seems almost impossible. I miss everything about him and everything I do with him. I miss holding his hand, nestling my face in his chest when I need a hug, laughing and joking around and even him being so mean to me that I start crying. Never in my life time have I ever missed anyone this much.

I know this may sound over dramatic and even a little clingy, but he's my other half. We've done almost everything together since we've met and him being away - even if it's just for a week - makes me life feel incomplete and sad.

I can't wait till he comes home.

A Throwback Thursday Kinda Day

Thursday, October 24, 2013
When I was younger, I always tried to get into the fashion scene - using Chictopia/Lookbook - but I always tried to hide it from poeple, I don't know why, but I was embarrassed of the idea of people seeing me do such crazy things. But I guess I kinda have my reasons - I was such a dork! Here are some throwbacks of The Cassie Paige

Inspiration Wednesday - Closets

Wednesday, October 16, 2013
So I've decided to do an Inspiration Wednesday just so that I keep up with at least posting something every week!

If you guys didn't read the last post, Israel and I will be moving out in the beginning of November! Israel has worked so hard to buy his first home and I'm extremely proud of him for accomplishing such an amazing yet hard goal!

In between this chaotic mess of planning, shopping, and running around time, I've been day dreaming of the perfect closet! I've always dreamt of a walk-in closet/room closet, and now that I finally get a chance to have one, I've been Pinteret-ing and Google-ing closets!

Keeping Up With The Cassie Paige

Tuesday, October 15, 2013
I haven't been doing a lot of blogging lately, I think it's mostly because I've been feeling kinda lousy. I've been pretty busy as well, Israel and I seem to always be running around places, going back and forth! Hopefully things take a turn for the better.


Israel bought a house! It'll be our home sweet home in November!


I won't make anymore promises, as I hear myself always saying "I'll try to blog more and post more OOTD", but I'll get around to posting when I have the chance.

Life, As I Know It

Thursday, October 10, 2013
There comes a point in some people's lives where you just start wondering, "what the hell have I done with myself?!" I've started to ask myself this a lot lately. What the hell am I doing? What the hell do I really want to be doing?! Why haven't I achieved any major goals yet!? I think most of these unsettling thoughts are from the realization that there's a huge life changing event happening in just a few weeks.

I'm starting to feel the stress, the anxiety the nervousness and all these roller coaster feelings all at once. I just wish at this point in my life, I was more prepared, more goal oriented when I was younger, smarter about the stupid choices I've made in the past. Maybe if I stopped comparing my life to other people's I wouldn't feel this way? But it's hard, I look at my boyfriend and the amazing career he has and start to worry. I worry about not having a stable career, not finding a job after we both were done school, about not being able to contribute equally in our relationship. I start to panic, have many sleepless nights, I stress all day and keep it hidden deep down so Israel doesn't worry. But I'm worried. I'm scared. I'm stressed. I'm sad. 

The more effort I put into making my life stable, the more it back fires on me. I'm now just hoping that at some point in this crazy life, that there's the right path for me, a path that will lead me to happiness, stability and not a handful of crazy, mixed emotions. A path where I can say "this is what I've been looking for my whole life" or least something I can enjoy doing....

Mini Trip

Monday, September 30, 2013
I am so glad Israel and I got a chance to go somewhere before winter came! Even though our roadtrip was short it was sweet! We took a mini road trip from Edmonton to Vancouver, with stops in Calgary, Kamloops and Jasper! Even though it was a long drive, it was beautiful! The only sad part about the trip was that when we got to downtown Vancouver, the weather instantly got gloomy and dark! Israel and I tried to enjoy it as much as we could but it was still a little disappointing!

Sorry guys! I've been pretty busy the last week and I've been MIA on here! School has been somewhat taking up my time and Israel and I went on a little mini road trip (I have some photos on Insta)! So I haven't had a chance to blog or post! But today, I am and I'm here to show you guys my last couple purchases and an amazing gift that Israel bought me during our road trip!

Revlon & NYX

Sunday, September 01, 2013
So to add to me latest shopping frenzy, I decided to grab some new drugstore make up!

I'm absolutely addicted to Revlon's ColorStay Lip Butters! I love how they're almost as great as lip balm yet they're add color to your lips. I was pretty sure I owned all of them - or at least close - until I saw that Revlon had come out with new colors!

Getaway

Thursday, August 22, 2013
I've been desperately craving a getaway! I don't know why but I just want to get up and leave! I love the feeling of being somewhere else, it gives me a chance and relax and not worry about a thing!

Last year, before Israel and I headed off to Cuba, we took a mini road trip to Calgary and decided to visit Lake Louise since Israel had never been! Even a small getaway like that is amazing! Lake Louise is such a beautiful site! You're surrounded with mountains and a beautiful emerald lake! If anyone ever gets a chance to go, go! It's such a beautiful place to visit in Alberta!

Take Me Away

Thursday, August 08, 2013
This time last year, Israel and I were heading off to Cuba! It was my first trip outside of Canada and I can remember how sick I felt after the landing on my plane ride! But how I loved Cuba - the crystal clear ocean, the white sand, the palm tress everywhere - it's definitely a huge change from Canada! I also remember how hot it was in August, it was always +40°C and I would always get heat exhaustion! But aside from that, it was great! How I wish I was on a vacation right now!

Wedding Fun

Monday, July 29, 2013
I haven't had a chance to do a outfit post for a while now - I feel like I've been so busy. This weekend however, I was able to go to a wedding! I haven't been to one since I was younger and I remember just sitting there and hating it because I didn't like dancing or I never really knew the kids there and I would always be so bored! But now, experiencing it older and more mature, it is actually pretty fun. I can't fully judge weddings yet as I've only been to one lately but hey, at least I had fun and a couple of free drinks!
