American Idol Season 11- Top 13

This season of American Idol is an interesting bunch. Below is the top 13.

Early favourites of mine are Jessica Sanchez, Heejun Han, Phillip Phillips and Shannon Magrane.

Being just 16 years old both Jessica and Shannon has a great/big voice. If you haven't already heard about Jessica's great rendition of Whitney Houston's, I Will Always Love You last week; I have it for you here. She did a great job on a difficult song. It's only just the first show and already her performance is nearly perfect - it might be a challenge for her to keep it up...

Last week's theme was the ladies did Whitney’s songs whereas the boys did Stevie Wonder. Not sure why they just didn't have everyone do Whitney. I would have loved to see the guys sing Whitney songs.

For the guys, I'm cheering for HeeJun (go Asian go!! lol) and Phillip. Heejun has such a great voice and personality. He's a funny guy too. However, I hope he doesn't go overboard with his comedic side, since people might think he's not taking the competition too seriously (just a thought – I think he’s quite entertaining).

Phillip is such a great performer. I love watching him perform with his guitar - he just gets very into the song. Plus he always has an interesting rendition of the songs he's performing.

Looks like it's going to be a good season! Let me now who you're rooting for? My predictions: Jessica Sanchez or Heejun will be the next American Idol!! : )

American Idol airs Wednesday and Thursday on Fox.

Marni at H&M:Pre-shop Event

I survived the Marni at H&M pre-shop event! Not only that, but got everything I wanted! I ended up getting both the graphic image T, sunglasses, the black and white dress shirt (love the pattern design), and the blue pocka dots short sleeve shirt.

Lucky me - so glad that I won a twitter contest through H&M for a chance to attend the pre-shop event. It happened at the Bloor Street location from 8pm - 10pm, the night before it goes on sale to the general public. I'm guessing about 150-200 people were invited.

As mentioned before, I got everything I wanted! The men's collection didn't go as quickly as the women's (so glad that I'm a guy - lol) Plenty of the men's stuff were still available, however mostly in bigger sizes. The ladies' collection was a different story.  Many of the dresses and accessories were all gone very quickly!

Good thing I slipped on the items I got, since the sizing was a bit different from regular H&M sizing. Once I got the right sizes, I really like how they all fitted on me. But no worries, if it doesn't fit or you change your mind, there is a 14 day return policy for the collection.

I was very happy with all my purchases! Can't wait to wear them-I might just wear one of the T tomorrow : ) Check out some of the pics I took....

Good luck to all the Marni shoppers tomorrow.

Marni at H&M - the collection

Very exciting.... the Marni collection for H&M was revealed! Check out the ladies collection with prices here, and the men's here. For more info about this collaboration, check out my earlier posting here.

The men's collection looks good. I'm curious how they will fit, from the images it looks like the tops are very loose fitting. I'm more into the fitted style - but it's Marni, so I will make it work on me : )

A few items that I'm interested in are no surprise, the graphic t-shirts, some of the shirts/top, and accessories; the tote bag and sunglasses.

Funny looking image : )

Cute looking graphic

Love the colour blocking, and the different colour sleeves.

Nice looking tote bag - with two short handles and two shoulder straps,
two ways to wear it!

Interesting top - short waistcoat

Interesting bag - not sure how exactly you use it, will need to see
how it is in person.....

What's on your wish list?? I will be lining up come March 8th, wish me luck! : )

Gap + Threadless T-shirts

So great to see Gap and Threadless working together to bring very cool t-shirt designs to a much bigger audience. Threadless for those who don't know - is an online community that makes t-shirts designed by people like you.

I am a big graphic t-shirt fan = I love Threadless! I think I own more than 15 Threadless Ts!

You can actually design the next batch of t-shirts that will be sold in Gap stores worldwide. Go check out the challenge here. Good luck!

Here are some t-shirts available for both men and ladies. Also, check out some pics I took of the merchandise display in store. Very nicely displayed. I liked how each t-shirt design has a story. Take some time and read them, it makes the t-shirt so much more interesting.

A design from Montreal, Quebec, Canada - cool eh?!

Since I'm talking about very cool graphic t-shirt design, I guess I should do a small plug on my Hello! stuff : ) Check out some of my designs. Gap/Threadless material?? I think so : )


If you like my Hello! stuff t-shirts, tote bags, or ties - you can purchase them here on etsy.
