Tasty Tidbits About Sam: The Way to Her Heart


My Crepe with a Mountain of Fruits, Vanilla Ice Cream, and Melted Milk Chocolate.

I woke up in a bit of a bad mood and a headache this morning. This post almost didn’t happen because as soon as I got home after a long but fun day out, I knocked out on the couch. But moving onnn~!

Tim’s Healthy Buckwheat Crepe, filled with Turkey, Cheese and other stuff I can’t remember and a Side of Salad

I may or may not have mentioned this before, but I love food. I mean. LOVE it. Look! Look at what I treated myself to for breakfast this morning! (It’s like some higher power knew I was going to be in a bad mood this morning and made sure I planned to go out for “breakfast” dessert with friends.)

Michelle’s Crepe with Vanilla Ice Cream, Whipped Cream, and Strawberries

My family, friends and co-workers know me to have a limitless appetite. As a result, I’m always hungry. And sometimes (annoyingly) I let the people around me know I’m hungry (that means: can we stop and get something to eat now?!), which is almost always.

A prime example of my hunger, after that breakfast, 10 minutes into our walk to somewhere I was hungry again. And then for lunch, I had spicy Chicken Biryani, and (two of) my friends’ poutines (I could have gone for dessert but decided against it– mostly because my wallet had emptied enough for the day haha).

Mandy’s Crepe with Vanilla Ice Cream and Melted Dark Chocolate

Almost everyone who knows me knows that a way to my heart is through my stomach. Feed Me. And I’ll love you forever. You don’t even have to treat me to fancy restaurants or cook huge extravagant meals. Just give me food (I like), this basic essential need for survival, and I’ll love you. Actually. Wait. Probably the only time I won’t love you for giving me food is if there’s Coriander/Cilantro/Chinese Parsley/Whatever-else-it’s-called in it. I greatly dislike this herb. As soon as I taste it, it sets off my gag-reflex. I don’t know why, but it does (it makes me sad and I wish I could ignore it (but I can’t) because a lot of restaurants put that in their dishes… sigh. I always ask to hold on the parsley).

Meli’s Crepe with a Mountain of Fruits and Melted Milk Chocolate

One person told me I probably don’t know what hungry means and I’m just associating this “feeling” for hunger. Who knows. The times when I’m not hungry cause panic because it either means: a) I’m sick, b) something is really really really wrong, or c) I’ve been replaced by some doppelganger who wasn’t aware of my eating habits. Most go for option C but it’s never been proven right so far.

So, if for whatever reason you wanted to be on my good side. Treat me out for food 🙂
I’ll end it here because I’m exhausted and I’m going to go back to sleep.

Until Tomorrow!

Tasty Tidbits About Sam: A Love Affair with Hair Dye


I noticed that I haven’t really written about myself on my blog yet (other than a glimpse into how I think and motivate myself), and it’s not like I’m self-absorbed or whatever, but I feel since I’ve been gaining some followers, you should get to know the other side of me as well! As a result, I decided to make a little corner of my blog called Tasty Tidbits About Sam. It’s not really going to be tasty (unless I’m talking about food haha) but I liked the alliteration 🙂

So, something about me. Back when I was in high school, I was a “rock-and-roll” girl (what everyone called ‘Emo’. Urgh. Just thinking about class-types makes me cringe). I was a typical teenager full of angst and a sometimes “F THE WORLD” mentality. Being into “angry noise” as my parents often called it, also put me into the kind of express “your F the system” mentality with hair dye, grungy clothes, studded everything and run down shoes or combats.

This “lifestyle” went on for ohhh… about four years. What some of my friends have admitted to me is, if I hadn’t taken the initiative to talk to them, they probably would have stayed away because I seemed much more intimidating and unapproachable back then. I laugh just thinking and writing about it. I don’t think I’m very intimidating. I’m under 5’4″ how intimidating can I get? (Okay. That’s a lie. I’ve been known to yell at rude people on the streets when they’re harassing my friends and I also have a bit of a temper but moving onnnn.)

Of course. I grew up and realized, hey, I need to be somewhat presentable when I start work, make new contacts out in the “Real World”. So… I toned down on the all black, ripped jeans and even the more ripped up shoes one by one. Oh, and I actually wear dresses now. Le Gasp! The high school version of me would have scoffed. Surprise surprise!

Don’t get me wrong, I still listen to my angry noise and I still have my days where I go back to that old style but it’s rare (I also still have my days when I go “F the world” because, hey, who doesn’t have bad days?). The one thing that I did keep though, is hair dye.

I LOVE experimenting with my hair, whether it be with braids, curling it, up do’s, anything! I’m always willing to try. My parents are still on the “first impressions bit” and I understand that, sooo there are some hairstyles I’ll just have to wait to get (like that side cut I’ve been wanting for two years now).

But, as much as I love all those things, dying my hair is NUMBER ONE on my favourite things to experiment with. I know, it’s not healthy for my hair but it’s dead anyway and I use treatments to keep them from breaking! In the passed year, I went from dark red (only visible under the sun). As you can and will continue to see during the post with all the photos, it was followed by a gradient style, the “ombre effect” which went from my natural dark hair, to dark red, ending in bright red.

When it faded, I went dark brown to blonde at the tips.

After that I went Coral Pink.

And then I went Blonde again.

Then I decided, hey lets go crazy with the hair dye and put ALL THE COLORS!
By all, I mean pink, blue, lavender and green.

I made the mistake of going to the spa and the chlorine killed the hair color making it a weird green.
To fix that I went from green to turquoise blue at the ends.

And then completely blue at the ends.

Then finally. I decided that maintaining all of this was a lot and I needed a break and a change so I cut my hair. I don’t have a picture of that yet because I still (a week later) haven’t decided if I like my short hair or not. It goes down to my shoulders just passed by collar bone. I can’t to anything with it which is probably why I’m having trouble liking it haha. I can’t braid it and a bun keeps falling out. Sigh. I’ll figure something out. I’m enjoying the challenge.

Okay. I think I’ve rambled enough for a friday evening haha!
Enjoy the weekend and until tomorrow~!
Sam
