Va Va Voom.

After the last few days have been spent shivering away, slipping on ice and dreaming of the summer in Montreal, i am slowly realizing that my tactics for surviving the cold may be off base. Black velvet pants and spiked heels could possibly be the ultimate way to destroy these brutish days. Only time will tell.

I remember...

  • First days in montreal.
  • Eating burgers and drinking champagne.
  • Journeying to St Laurent for many the free shot.
  • No jacket, no tights, no snow.
  • And a time where i got to see both bourgeois' everyday.

Rump Shaker

The Hood Internet - Good Ol' Fashion Rump Shaker (Beastie Boys x Matt & Kim) by hoodinternet

When i was walking to school the other morning cold and tired, this song came on and i
couldn't help but smile and giggle. So i figure if this song can accomplish putting an obnoxious smile on my face in the dead of montreal winter it deserves credit.
And i've always had a soft spot for the beastie boys.

pretty pretty please.

I just read the Coachella line up and it pains me a little it looks so golden. Since exam period is april 15-30, unless all my exams happen to fall on the 15th i think there is no hope i will make it back to the west coast by then.
If you haven't seen the line up yet , check it out HERE.

Since my camera self destructed on me two days into my trip this summer, i really missed having photos of pretty days and shwasty nights. But Santa was so kind to give me a new camera for christmas, hence the many shots of the holidays in Vancouver and new year adventures in Montreal.

I hope everyone had a marvelous winter break filled with shortbread, laughs and peppermint schnapps.

I have a feeling this year is going to be a good one.

Hot child in the cold, mean city

So far it's been a very exciting week. New semester, new internship, new shoes and a new exercise regime! Here are a couple shots from the weekend. Note the size of the 'breakfast burrito' and how cute Kirsty Reid is.

Stay warm!

A little history - a lot of laughs.

Happy new year! I have just returned back to Toronto after a perfect holiday. I first touched down in the thriving olympic metropolis of Vancouver where I spent time with my loving family and friends. Then it was on to the Arctic - also known as Winnipeg. The weather was cold but the memories made were more than enough to keep me warm.

Here is a trip to the costume museum in Winnipeg. Nestled in a old warehouse, we got to take a peek at some of Winnipeg's oldest fashions as well as a very interesting reference library where we viewed Vogue magazines (among others) dating back to 1948!

Take a look...
