Flower Crowns…NOT!

_W7C5791 Indio, California

I know what you are thinking…yes, that’s some very strategic boob placement I have going on there, but hey, if Halle Berry managed to keep her large mammary glands in check while winning an Oscar, I think I can handle these little guys. Have I made you uncomfortable with all the tit talk? I’m sorry, but the systematic desexualization of women is the only way we bitches are ever getting some equality up in here…so really, #sorrynotsorry alright. Now that I’ve made you uncomfortable and pushed some social commentary down your throats, time to talk about Coachella day 2!

It was pretty great. We started the day eating breakfast burritos with that kid from Modern Family, then headed to a mansion in the desert. As you can tell the view wasn’t too shabby, and we were in great company, oh hay gal pal Rocky Barnes! After a fantastic day pool/cliff side party, we took a microwave disguised as a party bus to the festival. Yes kids, that was a lame “it was real  hot” joke. Once we arrived we ate at our favourite handroll bar in the Rose Garden, and after I died and went to heaven, we watched some live music.

After James Bay stole my heart we headed to the main stage for more food and Ice Cube. Though every performance felt like a magical moment, one of the highlights from the weekend was seeing Sam Smith walk out during the Disclosure set. It also made me realize I don’t know the words to Disclosure songs, but am very good at mumbling lyrics and dancing really hard. We finished the night with a 3 hour set from one of the most iconic rock n’ roll bands of all time. So ya, Guns N’ Roses was pretty cool, in that like, unforgettable memory I will cherish forever kinda way… _W7C5665 _W7C5681 _W7C5706 _W7C5790 _W7C5716 _W7C5662 _W7C5698 _W7C5686 _W7C5708 _W7C5788 IMG_0948 IMG_1090 IMG_0983 IMG_0996 IMG_1091 IMG_1013 IMG_1890 IMG_1095 IMG_1099 IMG_1092 IMG_1082 _W7C5727 It’s a crown not a native headpiece k?

Ireland #TBT

_W7C6329 Ireland

Happy Saint-Patrick’s day everyone! May your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, may good luck pursue you each morning and night…and beer, I wish you great beer. Today, being one of my favourite holidays, I thought what better way to celebrate then to share our adventures in the Emerald Isle itself. Last summer we had the great pleasure, of visiting Ireland to celebrate my 24th birthday, and it may have been one of our greatest trips yet. Our mothers in tow, we spent a week driving all around the island of Ireland from south to north, and saw sights (and pubs), experienced the culture (and pubs), and made memories that have a good chance of lasting a lifetime (except the ones we made in pubs). The luck of the Irish followed us from Dublin, to Belfast, and we truly had a magical time…and many pints of Guinness as well. Along the way we snapped a couple #OOTDs that remained unpublished until now. I thought what better time then to share them with you now, as well as a few pictures from our road trip to remember. Also on this special holiday I thought I’d leave you with a few words of wisdom… You can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning… _W7C5378 _W7C5399 _W7C5381 _W7C5491 _W7C5549 _W7C5512 _W7C5626 _W7C5643 _W7C5646 _W7C5719 _W7C5704 _W7C5837 _W7C6117 _W7C5990 _W7C6161 IMG_8308 _W7C6285 _W7C6270 _W7C6325 _W7C6278 IMG_8317 IMG_8286 _W7C6344 _W7C6369 _W7C6391 _W7C6396 _W7C6418 12304332_10153701812930450_763209895028578394_o IMG_8364 12307587_10153701813725450_5488783441244037941_o 12339085_10153701813135450_1902410547975918873_o IMG_8497 IMG_8508 _W7C6637 12339345_10153701814425450_7475745730929294825_o IMG_8554 _W7C6685 12322632_10153701815420450_689179082859015852_o 12291857_10153702835285450_7404177763287724744_o IMG_8578 They’re in order…you’ll figure it out…

My Date With Travis

_W7C2651 Montreal, Cananda

Last week I had the immense pleasure of hosting my favourite Montreal designer, Travis Taddeo‘s, VIP shopping event in his beautiful old port atelier. Reminiscent of Andy Warhol’s factory, the evening was driven by talented Montreal artists and vendors coming together, sharing their craft, and having one or two glasses of bubbly. From Deux Lion jewelry to Alice Kass lingerie, and many more, the room was filled with little wonders I wanted to make mine…and had to succumb to by the end of the night.

Having known the name Travis Taddeo as an established  designer with a bold take on minimalist lines, based out of our city, I couldn’t wait to meet the man behind this distinctive aesthetic. Not only does my buddy Travis make the most remarkable garments with distinctive blends of silk, jersey, and fur, but I now know him as the sweetest soul I’ve ever had the chance to come across in my long 24 years of life. I was like a kid in a candy store, picking #OOTD options for the event earlier that week, and felt privilege to do so with the man behind the magic.

All in all, the evening was a great success and a wonderful time, though I did have a hard time watching my coveted pieces from Travis’ collection find new homes. I truly don’t know how he parts with them. In his position, I would be one hell of a hoarder…a broke hoarder surrounded by beautiful clothes. Doesn’t sound so bad at all. _W7C2663final _W7C2705final _W7C2734 _W7C2693 _W7C2707 _W7C2710 _W7C2656 _W7C2681 _W7C2729 _W7C2646 _W7C2720 _W7C2743 _W7C2763 _W7C2748 _W7C2781 _W7C2764 _W7C2788 _W7C2772 _W7C2778 _W7C2799 _W7C2835 _W7C2827 _W7C2831 (1) _W7C2843 _W7C2653 TT, all day, Erryday,

Throwback Thursday

2015-09-02 at 11-31-49 Beverly Hills, California

I’ve been talking for a long time about posts from past trips that never made it onto the site. Well here is my first! Back in September Peter and I, headed to LA to run the Disneyland Half Marathon, and to earn our Coast to Coast medals. This is done by running races in both Walt Disney World Florida, and Disneyland California in the same calendar year, and I wanted it real bad. So bad that I was willing to get my ass on a treadmill and train for not one, but TWO motherfucking half marathons. Guess all the cussing and running paid off, because we earned our best half time yet, so I felt pretty cool. Since then I’ve been rather sedentary, and by that I mean I literally only get off my bottom if food is part of the deal. I’ve always had awful self-control and discipline and can’t diet for shit, therefore as much as I hate the pressure, those races keep my ass in check. That being said I started something very unlike me this week and it is somehow going surprisingly well. I am on day four of the Master Cleanse, and have not died of hunger or come close to quitting yet. If you didn’t know the Master Cleanse or Lemonade Diet is a 10 day regime, where you rid your body of toxins by only consuming a drink consisting of water, lemon, maple syrup, and cayenne pepper. From chicken nuggets dipped in gravy and fries to juice for 10 fucking days…can’t believe I haven’t attempted to eat my own hand yet. Feeling pretty badass right about now. Anywhoo these photos were taken back in Beverly Hills a few days before we went to Anaheim to run the marathon. Hope you enjoy this first little #TBT and that I don’t got full cannibal by the end of the week! Pray for me. 2015-09-02 at 11-30-23 2015-09-02 at 11-25-37 2015-09-02 at 11-24-21 2015-09-02 at 11-31-00 2015-09-02 at 11-26-55 2015-09-02 at 11-27-46 2015-09-02 at 11-27-10 2015-09-02 at 11-25-35 2015-09-02 at 11-33-17 2015-09-02 at 11-33-34 2015-09-02 at 11-29-54 2015-09-02 at 11-31-41 The Four Seasons looks a lot like a jungle from here
