florals and lace and everything that's nice

 
 

This past weekend I spent a beautiful day with a beautiful girl. Hearing that my favourite floral shop was teaming up with Fort Night Lingerie. I automatically thought girls day out with Mama Shugs!

We had a great time rummaging through cute undies and skivvies. I've been in desperation for a new bra lately... Not that I even want one, but when I got sick and lost all my weight, I didn't even need one. I had nipples as tits for gods sake. 

 
 

But now that things are looking up and a tad more nippy, I figured it was time. Back in jail my little girls went. At least I could settle for a cute pair of high waisted undies and a lace bralette. 

After looking through Fort Night's studio sale, Crown Flora was holding one of their own ... And I think I was more excited about the plants than the clothes. 

Me and my mom were able to make the most beautiful terrarium. For those who don't know what a terrarium is, think an air aquarium for plants.... 

Don't worry, I'll show you. 

 

 

Take a look at how we got to make ours below for only 25 bucks. All materials included!

 

Pick your plant

Choose your gravel 

And decorate!

Voila, you got an easy to care for terrarium plant :) I'm hoping to get 2 more to hang at different levels. Stop by Crown Flora to get one of your own! 

Until Next Time,

Tight Spaces & Cool Creations

A couple of days ago, I had the opportunity to shoot with Jesse Herzog. Aside from the fact that he didn't tell me I'd have to jump a fence and climb through broken windows to get on set... It was pretty dope. 

Plus I scored a work out!!!

Not that I've been to the gym in about a year.... or ever. But you workout junkies can give me shit later.

If you haven't figured it out... I seriously can't kick these vintage vibes..... Rummaging through my mine and my mom's closet... finding bellbottoms, rounded sunglasses and destroyed denim. It was sweeeeeet success.

Take a look at us getting down and dirty in the abandoned Linseed Building:

Lately I've been rocking these sunglasses day and night. Even as an accessory! I picked them up at a small sun glass hut in Kensington! 4$ for 2 pairs.... Id say it's a pretty awesome deal.

*Which by the way are hosting an art fair this weekend!

Little not so secret of mine... I love graffiti, if I could run around Toronto being a famous graffiti artist, I probably would.

I first found my appreciation for it while traveling through Germany. Mid stealing a piece of the Berlin Wall, I had a mere second to enjoy it... No but seriously, the messages in art speak much louder than any political movement of that time could. 

As Jesse brought me to this abandoned building, I wasn't expecting to feel as comfortable as I did. The further we explored the premises, the further it became an expression of art. I began to see a different insight into Toronto's culture. That or it was just a great place to do crack...

 I even came across Toronto's well known LoveBot, I'm sure you've seen his work throughout the city.... that while lighting a smoke bomb off a roof that read "FUCK THE POLICE"!

It was a pretty good time. 

Double Tee's and our main squeeze, InkBox have a sweet surprise for you real soon! More details to come :)

 

Until Next Time,

Adventure Island

Summer is finally here and ready to stay!

I remember when I was a kid I enjoyed Toronto so much more... Checking out cool places like the AGO, Canada's Wonderland and the ROM. I was literally obsessed with dinosaurs, walking around at age 4 telling people I wanted to be a palaeontologist.... Yeah. 

Usually for Victoria Day weekend I was at the Toronto Islands. I didn't even remember how nice it was until this past week. 

Being a part of the creative direction team over at InkBox, a photoshoot has been in the works for a couple weeks now. Obviously our first thought was a day in the sun... While finding a nice "beach" in Toronto wasn't the easiest thing to find... we settled for Centre Island. At least I thought we settled for it. 

I had the chance to go check out the island a couple days before our shoot with Jeff Isy. One of my new favourite photographers and friends. It was cold... and when I mean cold. I mean really fucking cold. Aside from the fact you can tell I'm nippy in half my photos I was pleasantly surprised by the scenery. 

Take a peak at the island and my adventures with Jeff Isy below:

 
 

I actually bought this vest a couple of years back in Boston. That's probably when LF became one of my favourite stores to shop at. Aside from the fact that it's a small chain (which I love), a lot of their items are one of a kind. The only downside, they are not in Canada!! Another reason why I want to get out of here.... 

So anytime you find yourself in Cali or Boca, make your way over. Half of my vintage graphics are from them... totally rad and totally original! 

 
 

Ok I was absolutely freezing in these shots. Although it wasn't the comfiest shoot... It was well worth it. I was more than surprised with this cute little nook. The perfect background for any indie/ boho feel. 

 
 

Incase you haven't figured it out already... I'm an overall junkie. Other than the fact that they're acid wash, I can wear these babies all year round!!! I haven't been able to kick some serious old school vibes lately.... So these will have to do.

Can't wait to share my upcoming photoshoot with InkBox Tattoo's & Robert MacNeil.... 

Until Next Time,

Shoes of Summer

Warmer weather calls for shoes just as durable as the ones winter demanded. Since we all know spring and summer is the time for exploration, adventures, and new beginnings. Not only should your shoes reflect this, but they better be tough enough for your summer ahead.

Here are some of our favourites:

The Gladiator Sandal 

What kind of summer would it be if you didn’t spend at least half of it traipsing around town in a reliable pair of gladiators? More neutral colours means they will probably go with anything in your closet and you’ll be wearing them for seasons to come. There's bound to be a pair that suit your needs, with a bit of a heel or one's that covers your toes...... You can’t really go wrong with the classic gladiator. 

The Clog

Clogs are back! And they come in all different shapes, styles, and sizes. The variation and versatility has us swooning while comfort is a major plus! Their sleek style keeps you looking urban and chic, adding a classy element to any outfit. They’re so easy and fun to just slip on and head out the door, these will likely be your      go-to's, no matter the occasion. 

 
 

The Platform Sandal 

And last but not least, my favourite.

The platform sandal...... Platforms can be such a fun way to add height to your figure all while making a statement. Chunky and funky as shown above can become a staple in anyone’s closet. They make for the perfect shoe that’s easy to style when you're feeling a little more adventurous. If you’re tired of your heels but still want some extra height, then this is the shoe for you. 

STEFANO PLATFORM - $80.00

These shoes should keep you prepped for anything that comes your way this spring and summer, but whatever shoes you find, make sure they keep you comfy and stylish while making some crazy ass memories this summer.  

Until Next Time,

The Abnormal Beauty

I never thought my life would be heading in this direction. Don't get me wrong, as a child I dreamed of being famous. I once even found myself jealous of Hannah Montana... like what?

When I was in school, working towards a life full of success and happiness... I can sure as hell tell you I didn't see this. When I was bored I would draw, when I had spare time I would put outfits together and when I was in school I would daydream. It wasn't always fashion but I saw myself with a voice. 

Double Tee's came to be and I had things to say..... Lots of things. But, of course having my own blog and living in the 21st century. I myself even liked looking through pictures much more than I did reading. So I thought "fuck, I'm gonna have to start taking pictures of myself..... I wasn't even into instagram, definitely not a social media junkie. I mean I was using the camera on the back of my phone.....

After a couple of shoots, working with great artists and the cliche, "finding my angles". I thought, these pictures look sick. Only to look back on them and think "What the fuck".... I had realized modelling wasn't posing in front of a camera simply trying to look good. 

There's was a HUGE difference between amateur and professional. 

And I never wanted my blog to look amateur...

After a bit of practice, getting casting calls and receiving jobs. I was pretty proud of myself. While it was all very exciting, it also was quite intimidating... Like fuck, imagine seeing girls twice your height and solid tens...... everywhere.

Then there's me, Ms. 5'7 and I don't even like my smile.

I never went for pretty... Always preferred the Kate Moss, mouth half open stoned look. Not the girl next door..... which half of these people were. So after getting to know the industry a bit better, receiving jobs here and there, I was on a  roll. 

I realized all I needed was a little edge and personality to land my photos on sticks and stones agency. A blog that inspired me far before I started mine..... When I saw my face up on their page I couldn't believe  it. 

In this industry you don't have to be perfect, having all the right features alone would get you nowhere. You just have to know what you're doing and have fun doing it. I'm not the model to smile in my photos.... The way my nose curls up and cheek lines indent.... NO. Not my thing, I was always a little more dark and twisted anyways... Yet, for some reason, photographers like a smile. Everyone has their beautiful imperfections.... things they don't like about themselves, mine just happened to be captured in pictures.

Lucky for me, I've worked with a number of talented people who rather than making me hate my features more, made me appreciate them. The little things we hate and notice only about ourselves, are the exact things that capture our character. 

I mean on one hand, if I had a free nose job lined up with lots of drugs I'd probably go for it, but when that happens, we can talk about it. Until then I am learning to accept who I am as a person and use it to my advantage. That along with my very talented make-up artists... thank god for those ladies. 

I had lots of fun at my last photoshoot with Indigo7Productions, loosening up and actually smiling.... was like being on set for the first time again.

Maybe I'll crack the perfect smiling pic.

Until Next Time,
