Bunny Love

 

Cocaine Princess here.

 That time of year has arrived where "The Ten Commandments" will be airing non~stop this weekend as well as one of my all time favorites, "It's The Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown."


Ahh, Spring Time......The air is now a little bit warmer, the musical notes of birds in the early morning can be heard, flowers are beginning to blossom and how pretty are all the pastel colors that surround us. After the marathon winter we endured it feels as if we're finally coming out of the dark and into the light.  


I love Easter and not just because of the chocolate eggs and the tradition of buying new shoes (as well as a new outfit to go along with the shoes) but for what it represents overall, a sense of renewal and the promise of hope.



Wishing you Love, Peace, & Light this Easter Weekend.


****

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally (Good) Friday.

Whatever your plans are, may it be filled with a basket of chocolate eggs.~x

PS: Those of you who know me are well aware there's no way I can blog an Easter entry without posting these famous bunnies.

RIP, Peaches.

Cocaine Princess here.

"British fashion and TV personality Peaches Honeyblossom Geldof the daughter of world-famous musician Bob Geldof and the late Paula Yates died today at the age of 25. Her death is being treated as sudden and unexpected as officers continue to work to establish the circumstances around her death."

Peaches, was just 11 when her mother, television presenter Paula Yates, died of a heroin overdose at the age of 41 in 2000. She leaves behind a husband, Thomas Cohen, and two sons, 20 month old Astala Dylan Willow and 10 month old Phaedra Bloom Forever who was born on April 24th, the same day as Peaches' late mother, Paula. 

Sir Bob Geldof released the following statement:

"Peaches has died. We are beyond pain. She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us. Writing ‘was’ destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever. How sad that sentence is......."


Peaches also leaves behind her siblings, Fifi Trixibelle Geldof, Pixie Geldof and half-sister, Tiger Lily Hutchence-Geldof.

In her last Twitter message to her 190,000 followers on Sunday, Peaches posted a photograph of her as a baby being held by her mother, with the words, "Me and my mum".

Her last two instagram posts were two extremely adorable videos of her son while she gave him a bath & prepped him for bed.  Click here to watch.  (***The video as well as her instagram page was removed as of yesterday, April 9th)
 
 
I often read about Peaches in the fashion and society section of newspapers and magazines. One can't help but feel hurt and shock upon hearing this tragic news.

These instances always make me reflect on how short and fragile life truly is.

RIP, Peaches.

"Oh Jumpin' Jesus Tonight!"



Cocaine Princess here.

Ahh........after 6 looooong months of terrible weather spring has finally sprung for us up here. Hallelujah! The snow has melted and the grass has made an appearance and although it might be all muddy and murky it's a welcome sight. The birdies are chirping melodic melodies as early as 5am and the Canadian Geese have made their way back home. But then again I don't think they ever left.

It no longer becomes pitch black by 4:30pm and there's no longer the risk of your face, ears, nose and eyelashes cracking and falling off upon stepping outside. Best of all there's no longer the need to wear multiple layers of clothing resulting in not being able to put your arms down when you put on your coat.  Actually, I take that back. You know what the best part is? Everyone's' mood has changed dramatically, for the better that is. Emotionally and physically we're all feeling back to ourselves. Ahh...... It feels good. 


Unfortunately the same can't be said for the folks in Newfoundland. This past week Mother Nature unleashed one hell of a beast on them by dumping a record 40 centimeters of snow over 2 days. Check out the video of a Newfoundland man stuck in snow that's becomes a YouTube hit worldwide.

6 Long Damn Months...


Cocaine Princess here.

Greetings from the Great White North.



"Breaking News: Canada's weather prophet, Wiarton Willie, had to enter the witness protection program." #endlesswinter  twitter‏@MeanwhileinCana

Well, the cold weather continues up here and most of us if not all are nearing that breaking point. It's depressing and exhausting. It's been 6 months. 6 long damn months of awful cold weather.

"New Canadian Word: Frostage. To be held hostage by cold weather." 

Like everyone else I'm sick of it. I went shopping the other day and bought a couple of new spring outfits during Toronto Fashion Week. I'm loving the pretty pastel colors this season but sadly not even retail therapy is helping lift my mood.

****

In other news, have you seen this commercial? John Lennon, Elvis Presley, Kurt Cobain and Tupace Shakur are among the dead celebrities whose likenesses make appearances in a questionable new beer commercial.  

"The setting is a lovely, private beach getaway that is, apparently, inhabited by dead celebrities. And they’re all getting tanked! We see “Elvis” hanging out on the beach checking out the waitress who brings him a bottle, while it appears that “Marylin Monroe” is rubbing suntan lotion on “Tupac Shakur.” Meanwhile, someone pretty clearly resembling Lennon is ordering drinks for he and his pal “Cobain."




What do you think?

Btw, I apologize for the lackluster posts these past couple of weeks, the meteorological conditions have literally sucked the life out of me.

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Whatever your plans are have a wonderful last weekend of March.~x

This Is What March Looks Like.


Cocaine Princess here.

This past Tuesday we experienced Spring like weather. The temperature reached +9C.  I thought, "Yes, there is light at the end of the tunnel!"

But I was wrong, dead wrong because the next day we were slammed with another damn, frigging snow storm.


I took these pics yesterday just in case anyone is wondering what the month of March looks like up here in The Great White North. 



My neighbor's car:


Hmm, it's truly hard to believe Spring arrives next week. 




Spring..........Up here we've lost all hope. We're all convinced Mother Nature is hell bent on keeping winter all year long and if that isn't bad enough the deep freeze has returned yet again and more snow is expected next week. 


Dear Mother Nature,
 I hate you.

Respectfully Yours,
Colombian Princess.


Like pretty much everyone else, I'm tired of this weather. I'm totally drained out. My God, when will this end for us? Will it end for us? Will the warm weather ever arrive? Will I see and smell fresh cut grass or feel the heat of the sun on my bare shoulders ever again? Will my pedicured toes be able to wear open-toed sandals? What about all my pretty dresses, skirts and shorts?............

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Whatever your plans are make sure it includes having a drinkie, after-all it's St. Paddys Day Weekend. ~x

What Possible Reason Could They Have For Sticking Around?

 

 Cocaine Princess here.

It's hard to believe the first day of Spring is March 20th given how brutal the weather has been for us especially this year. A few of the things we've suffered through courtesy of Mother Nature:

-One snow storm after another
-A massive ice storm
-A blackout because of the ice storm
-A record amount of snow accumulation

And

A record number of cold weather alerts, 32 to be exact. To quote my neighbor who was shovelling his driveway on Sunday, "F----ing winter needs to F---k off."  

Unfortunately it seems that winter will be sticking around. According to Environment Canada the cold weather will be here 'til April. 


 Yesterday it was -19C and as cold as it was I bravely went outside. Today, March Madness officially begins at the mall but a few select stores decided to start one day earlier and so of course I had to go. I scored some pretty sweet deals. Anyways, as I was in the parking lot heading towards my car I spotted these: 



 Although they were gracious enough to stop and pose for pictures this particular group didn't seem friendly but then again I'm not too sure if geese in general are friendly creatures. First, they literally surrounded the driver's side door and wouldn't move. Secondly, they began strectching out their necks while staring directly at me--- and believe me their stares were quite menacing too. A car then came from around the corner and after a couple of honks the geese finally decided it was time to move and they did so by taking their time.

Now I could be wrong but I was always under the impression geese fly south for the winter?  I don't understand why they're still hanging around here in frigid temperatures. 

What possible reason could they have for sticking around?

1. Have their passports expired?

2. Are the US border agents giving them a hard time?

3. Are they wanted in the Sunshine State for a crime?


Is this a concern? Should I alert someone that the birds are still here? If so, who? It's not just one or two but several flocks. 


****

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Remember we turn our clocks one hour ahead this week which means one less hour of sleep (BOO!) but more daylight (YEAH!) hours. At last it's that time of year where the sun will no longer be setting by 4:30pm.

Whatever your plans are have a brilliant weekend.~x

"Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler"

 
 Cocaine Princess here.

I love Carnival. I love everything about this day. Everyone at least once in their life needs to travel to the sensual city of Rio de Janeiro and experience everything Carnival has to offer.

One of my favorite movies, "Wild Orchid" was filmed in Rio.

An instrumental piece called "Love Theme" by Paradise is truly breathtaking which I have posted below. The music doesn't start until 5:28--- when Carre Otis spots Mickey Rourke so you may want to fast forward unless you want to see a bunch of naked people covered in body glitter and paint celebrating Carnival that is.



Today is also known as Fat Tuesday referring to the practice of the last night of eating richer, fatty foods before the ritual fasting of the Lenten season. Nowadays not everyone commits to fasting. Some choose to give something up, for example smoking as a form of penitence. I already started 11 days ago when I gave up Energy Drinks. (If you missed that post, click here. ) The only difference is I plan on giving up for good and not until Easter. 

So my Lovelies, are planning to give anything up? If so, what?

Enjoy the day eating to your heart's content.  My sweet tooth is going to have a good time, oh yeah!!

XOXOXOXO,
Cocaine Princess
