Sometimes it feels inappropriate or out of place to go on living my usual routine and publishing work, when it feels so futile in comparison to the chaos of the world around us. I love what I do and find it brings me joy and serves a purpose bigger then the way the job title shallowly depicts it, but it’s feeling extra trivial today. So instead of going on a spiel about how cozy I was in my fluffy pink jacket, I ask you to take this time to educate yourself about how you can contribute. Sharing scary headlines on our Facebook feeds, and posting outraged statuses to our friends and followers, is actually a good start. Raising awareness and humanizing these issues is a big part of it, but what else can WE, as individuals, do to help. That’s what I’m doing today and I implore you to do the same. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like feeling powerless to changes that are affecting the people closest to me, so I’m going find a way to get my power back. Until then, remember to always love, and be kind to one another. Anger and hatred is what brought us here in the first place.

We are back! After a little European sabbatical it feels so nice to return to you and have so much sick shit to share in the coming weeks. We shot my favourite #OOTDs in all of our favourite cities from Paris, to Capri, to Amsterdam and I can’t wait to throw all that content on the blog, and rant about how much I ate. Something feels strange about being back though I must admit. I hate resorting to talking about the weather, but when did September happen and when did Summer kinda start ending? I feel like we spent all those good sunny months in front of our computer screens and aside from the miraculous weeks across the pond, summer vacay didn’t feel very vacationy at all. As someone who calls Canadialand her home I cherish those 3-4 months where the sun gods are in our favour…because let’s face it, in our native Canada, Winter is ALWAYS coming. So here is my pitch finish reading this, check out the cool pictures, from that time I sweat a lot before an amazing Grey Goose event, and wore a awesome boho power suit, but then go play outside! We got to take what we can get kids, and September is all we got left, so take it all in. I leave you with this jem of a song from the mid 2000s, by the only man that has ever been sad enough to sit cross legged. Love you my little chickens, so happy to be back.
…aint nothin’ sexy about swass

Being able to collaborate with brands you’ve admired and worn through your pre-blogging life is kinda the best part of the job. When I was a young 17 year old lass interning in New York City, I spent an awful lot of time and money at my neighbours place in the Meat Packing District. As you probably have guessed from the not so illusive title of this post, my so called “neighbour” was the Catherine Malandrino store. So when we got a call to cook up something special with this beloved brand, you could say I was kind of excited or whatever.
Last week I had the immense pleasure of previewing Catherine Malandrino’s new jewelry line, created by renowned international jewellers, Delmar. These statement pieces, feature jem stones like black agate, guava quartz, and a touch of diamonds, because god knows those never hurt. I also had the privilege of styling #OOTD’s around my favourite pieces, and pulling from the Malandrino archives from the beautiful and newly rebranded Kast boutique in Montreal. Not a bad day of work if I do say so myself. I fell in love with every piece, from my favourite aquamarine bracelet to CM’s iconic flag dress, and hope you will too! If you don’t…well, you got some deeper seeded issues I simply don’t understand.
It’s a three for one this week
Look 1 – Nasty Gal hat, Ray Ban “Timeless Rounds,” Catherine Malandrino jacket, and jumpsuit from Kast Boutique, and jewelry from Delmar International, Mansur Gavriel bucket bad, and Balmain boots. Look 2 – Gucci sunglasses, Catherine Malandrino dress and jewelry, Chanel “Boybag,” and Saint-Laurent boots. Look 3 -Tom Ford sunglasses, Catherine Malandrino dress and jewelry, We Wore What x Marieclaire St John neckerchief, Loewe elephant bag, and Chanel boots.
Happy April’s Fools my little chickens! Though the title of this post may incite that I have some sort of practical joke to play on you my lovely readers, that is not the case. We are back in Montreal after our flight landed at midnight last night from Miami, and about to set sail on a six hour drive to Toronto, so this baby “holiday” kinda went unnoticed in the midst of all the travel hoopla. I do however have that same long ass drive alone to devise a master plan to fuck with my loved ones. Fake pregnancy is always a good one! Credible, but not super original. Flaming bag of shit on your doorstep? Too far, too far. Guess I’ll have to go with a classic. Saran Wrap on toilet seat…man I’m disappointed in myself. Having hardcore pranking inclinations as a child, I seem to have lost my touch over the years. Not to worry though. Google will come and save the day, as I’ll most likely plagiarize a devious plan on the interwebs. Or maybe I’ll just convince my buddies to go see Batman v. Superman, and tell them how great it was. That’s ten dollars and two and a half hours they’ll never see again. Are you devoting more brainpower than you’d care to admit on a potential hoax to traumatize your friends and family? If so, please do not hesitate to contact me, I’m taking suggestions.
