Jon Snow does Osheaga

2015-08-02 at 11-30-13 Montreal, Canada

So we just got back from our very adventurous trip to Ireland, the jet lag is still in full effect, the husband surprised me with a birthday party with all our buddies when we got back, currently on day 2 of that hangover, and now I must face the world, start packing for LA and play the travel game all over again. I’m also a whole year older and therefore weaker, easier to exhaust, and plain old closer to death. Due to this, you will have to forgive me, but that lil’ run-on sentence probably won’t be the worse part of this post. It’s gonna be directionless, nonsensical, and full of unrelated tangents. This little #OOTD took place on the last day of Osheaga and marked the end of festival season. That’s right kids…Winter is coming. Well technically Fall is is coming, but I’m never gonna miss a chance to stick that reference in there. When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die, ya’ know. Sorry, I’m still on a Game of Thrones high after visiting Winterfell in Belfast (check out our INSTAGRAM, to see all the fun). The Lannisters send their regards btw…Just kidding! If you guys don’t know the fuck I’m talking about well, you are just a bunch of Jon Snows and know nothing. Nonetheless I lav you all and thank you for putting up with my Game of Thrones geek out rant. I bid you adieu! 2015-08-02 at 11-22-57 2015-08-02 at 11-23-05 2015-08-02 at 11-26-08 2015-08-02 at 11-28-36 2015-08-02 at 11-22-52 2015-08-02 at 11-24-53 2015-08-02 at 11-30-11 2015-08-02 at 11-23-42 2015-08-02 at 11-24-30 2015-08-02 at 11-25-37 2015-08-02 at 13-40-06 2015-08-02 at 13-49-01 2015-08-02 at 13-53-49 2015-08-02 at 14-09-40 2015-08-02 at 14-21-47 2015-08-02 at 16-49-35 2015-08-02 at 15-50-54 IMG_1246 2015-08-02 at 17-30-18 IMG_1252 2015-08-02 at 19-48-29 2015-08-02 at 21-58-03 IMG_1273 2015-08-02 at 11-31-31 My sexy little Night’s Watch ensemble

Festival Queen

2015-07-31 at 12-22-36 Montreal, Canada

Hello friends. Yes, friends that is what all you little chickens are to me. This past weekend was Osheaga and not only did I have a great time dressing for the festival (I mean I wore a crown), and listening to some exceptional music, but I had an even better time meeting some of you! Your enthusiasm was so touching and appreciated I was afraid I didn’t convey how grateful I truly am. So here I am, writing a little note to say a big thank you to all who are reading these words.

I have been having a hard time recently, choosing what steps to take with this little labour or love. It has been a year and a half since we re-launched the blog on this new site and, as fun as I have had with it, it has become a daily challenge and a lesson in humility, accepting to take some giant leaps forward that are followed by rejection and more then a few steps back. I am not a fan of giving up, but on some days throwing in the towel and letting CC go has crossed my mind. It has been tough to persevere, when all the time, effort, and love we put into this, doesn’t always result in the growth we’d hope to see. My optimistic ambition was always to turn this little engine that could into somewhat of a career, but the journey is never as simple as one imagines it. Hard work doesn’t always pay off, and sometimes admitting defeat is the best call one can make…Not for me.

To all who ever glanced at the site and thought it not worthy, to all who lost interest, and to those who personally rejected what we are trying to accomplish…I say fuck ’em! I do not wake up in the morning and write CC for them, I do that for you guys. All who have followed our adventures, and enjoyed the ride, all who have let one of my dumb jokes make you smile on a shitty day, all of you who took the time to come up to me and give a stranger a hug because it feels like you know me. Truth is you guys do know me, probably better then most, and I feel like I know you too if that makes any sense…But I want to know more, who you are, your story, what you love, what it was that drove you mad enough to spend time reading my rants, and what it is that you would like to see from our little blog. We are a work in progress, on a journey as I had mentioned, and now it’s time for you to tell us in what direction we should be heading. Just click that little Contact tab and write what your little heart desires, I want to hear it all! God knows you’ve read enough of what my crazy ass has to say…After all of that, imma leave you with a little cheesy wisdom.

Follow your dreams, be empowered, never take no for an answer, and most of all don’t let those who reject you define your worth, because if you do, how will those fuckers find out they were wrong…

I adore you all! 2015-07-31 at 12-15-52 2015-07-31 at 12-19-05 2015-07-31 at 12-15-00 2015-07-31 at 12-16-11 2015-07-31 at 12-17-09 2015-07-31 at 12-20-36 2015-07-31 at 12-20-24 2015-07-31 at 12-16-41 2015-07-31 at 12-15-14 2015-07-31 at 12-16-29 2015-07-31 at 12-18-33 11811470_10153460923535450_3917145591612466477_n IMG_1100 IMG_1161 IMG_1086 IMG_1125 IMG_1094 IMG_7344.JPG IMG_1096 IMG_1137 IMG_7354.JPG IMG_1154 IMG_7367.JPG IMG_1154 IMG_7368.JPG IMG_7371 IMG_7417.JPG IMG_1169 IMG_7416.JPG IMG_7428.JPG 2015-07-31 at 12-20-38 xoxo

Goodbye Coachella

2015-04-19 at 19-39-37 Indio, California

How am I still on Coachella…I know guys, I know. What can I say, I packed one too many #OOTDs for a weekend. We headed back to the festival in the middle of a sandstorm (explains the paisley accessories) around 5 for a beautiful dinner in the Rose Garden. Though it was all kinds of delish and we made some interesting new friends at the communal table, I hoovered all the drinks and food I could keep down as fast as possible so I could catch the end of Ryan Adams‘ set. We then met up with some friends to watch what ended up being the highlight of the trip; Stromae. I’m not one to stick myself in the middle of a huge crowd to get trampled by drunk strangers, but man am I glad I made an exception this time. He was just…wow. My favourite Belgian even did a little dance with his buddy Kanye which was pretty cute to witness, though I was kinda disappointed Mr. West didn’t sing a verse from his remix of Alors On Danse. We were still listening to Stromae’s Racine Carrée’s on our road trip to Disney World, which caused my mother to become an instant fan. She now insists we blast Formidable on repeat all around the house 24/7, though she still can’t quite remember his name. Florence and The Machine, the act I was most looking forward to, was next. My favourite fairy had a broken foot due to all the jumping around she did during her set the previous weekend, but it didn’t take any of her magic away.  Finally it was Drake‘s turn to take the stage, and my turn to jam a little too hard and make people around me uncomfortable. A perfect close to a perfect weekend. 2015-04-19 at 19-39-53 2015-04-19 at 19-40-55 2015-04-19 at 19-41-34 2015-04-19 at 19-40-59 2015-04-19 at 19-40-05 2015-04-19 at 19-40-23 2015-04-19 at 19-40-58 2015-04-19 at 19-41-11 2015-04-19 at 17-44-22 2015-04-19 at 17-44-06 2015-04-19 at 19-24-31 2015-04-19 at 21-48-35 2015-04-19 at 18-04-43 2015-04-19 at 22-15-59 2015-04-19 at 22-10-45 2015-04-19 at 22-16-21 2015-04-19 at 22-57-37 2015-04-19 at 22-57-49 2015-04-20 at 00-19-27 2015-04-19 at 22-58-17 2015-04-20 at 00-15-53 2015-04-19 at 19-39-28 Midnight Cowboy

To Bleach or Not to Bleach

2015-03-08 at 10-00-50 Universal Studios, Florida

Hi friends. To bleach or not to bleach, this is my question for you today. You see, ever since I first saw Vicky Cristina Barcelona I have been plagued with the notion that perhaps I  should chemically kill my hair in order to obtain Scarlette Jo’s fairy locks. After this my Khaleesi obsession jumped on the bandwagon and gave me a second reason to dye my hair as close to white as a blonde can be. Elsa didn’t help either, she made my ice blonde ambition grow in epic proportions. Should I just let it go (I can’t help it), or find the courage inside me to be reckless and not think so much about the consequences attached to my every decision. I know…shit just got deep right. Imma leave it at that, but I need YOUR HELP. So I created a little poll you can all anonymously answer. The decision will be made tomorrow, so hustle little chickens.

As for the outfit, it ain’t nothing to fuss over about standard theme park getup, but goddamn those shoes are cool. Also, my attempts at wearing a leather choker seriously, were short lived. While I was pulling on the necklace attempting to stretch it out to clear an air way it snapped on me. R.I.P you masochist 90s trend that attempted to take me down with you… 2015-03-08 at 10-05-22 2015-03-08 at 10-01-53 2015-03-08 at 10-02-18 2015-03-08 at 10-05-42 2015-03-08 at 10-02-53 2015-03-08 at 10-00-45 2015-03-08 at 10-03-18 2015-03-08 at 10-08-07 Muumuu Love
