Hey friends. Forgive me my absences on your newsfeeds for the past week, you see it was all to serve a greater purpose…my higher education. Ya, it’s finals time ya’ll, and let me tell you, this McGill business sure likes to keep me busy! A few weeks ago we pulled a “Claude circa 2008” move and went out…to a club. I know crazy, right? This was’t any club you see, I’m talking Buonanotte, our old stomping grounds, the place that had witnessed me making one too many bad decisions in the past…and boy was it a good time! Grandma over here, ate too many carbs, danced all night, and might of even got up on a couch or two. It’s crazy, time might have gone by, but this place is hasn’t lost its relevance. It is the same great music, people, and vibe, that had me going there every weekend, to later have the best stories to recount from my nights out. It truly is a staple in our city and I’m glad to see it’s still kicking butt! The evening was a gold themed Moet & Chandon event, therefore, I couldn’t help but wear the king of not so subtle prints and metallics, and pull out some vintage Gianni Versace. I mean if your going to do gold…do it right, right? The dress itself is actually from Versace’s collaboration with H&M a couple years back, and I had finally found an occasion to yank it out of my closet. Oh, and here’s a tip, next time you go out, do it in combat boots…really brings up the whole “comfort/kick ass” factor.

On some days I just wish I could teleport to this place for a little pick me up. Back home the climate, the atmosphere, the responsibilities are all starting to take their toll, and I haven’t really been able to enjoy much lately. I guess you could say I’m a dark shade of blue at the moment. Nonetheless I thought I would report the the current weather in Claudeland as I know I haven’t been keeping in touch as often as I usually do. Sometimes life gets a little rough in its every facet, and it begins to be hard to see the the good anymore. Life has been kicking my fat ass these days, but I know this feeling won’t stay forever. As all dem feminine tattooed ribs, wrists and feet state “this too shall pass” right? I have more to live for on my worst days then many do on their best, so I have to keep my shit together. There you have it kids, a depressing existential rant from a girl who spends her time trying to make her readers laugh. FAIL. I love you little ladies and gents…are you having a bad day?

I feel awfully mature for a one year old, let me tell ya! That being said this post birthday week has been somewhat uneventful in a good, responsibility-less kind of way. We are back in Montreal, as we will be spending the holidays at home, so I am totally relishing the fact that I will be freezing my balls off shooting my Christmas #OOTDs…whoopty do! Until all the fun festive fashion arrives, I give you a mildly slutty two piece outfit that would definitely not enjoy the weather here in fucking Winterfell. The winter has come my pretties, so I am staying nice and toasty under my comforter. Starting to get cabin fever…isn’t this time of year just magical…

New York, New York
A couple weeks ago my husband, his best friend and I took a little roadtrip to The Big Apple. Yes, I can still be considered a tourist therefore can continue to call New York “The Big Apple”, screw dem haters. The reason for this speedy journey down to the US of A was an appointment with my favourite tattoo artist Bang Bang. I had planned this adventure quite a while back and couldn’t believe the day where I would lay on a bed in agony for several hours had finally arrived. The process was not as painful as anticipated, as my previous experience with rib tattoos was anything but pleasant, but Bang, and being alone at the shop after hours made it bearable. I took it like a woman (I’m a feminist kay?) while watching Alice in Wonderland, and 4 hours later voilà, my canvas of a body was the proud owner of permanent art. I’m going to be a mean looking’ grandma. This #OOTD moment, was captured the following day at the Mondrian Soho before leaving my favourite big fruit of a city, as I attempted to keep everything away from what felt like a blistering open wound. Hope you enjoy. PS someone’s having a birthday this week, best tune in December 13th to check it out!
