Surviving the Holidaze Pt 4

Wow, can you believe it’s the end of 2015 already? WE MADE IT! This is one of the first years in my life that really felt as if it went by quickly. (I think it’s partially due to meeting and growing together with my blog partner who helps me keep the gears of this lil machine turning LOL.) This year has been far from perfect. I’ve had setbacks. I’ve had plot twists. I’ve changed paths and entered new lanes. Old relationships fizzled out and new ones blossomed.

I’ve had various blogs in the past but I’ve never been as serious about blogging as I am now and I really owe a HUGE thank you to you guys for keeping me focused over these past three months. You may not know this but when you guys come by regularly, hit the like button on my posts, start following me, or leave a comment, it inspires me to keep going. I don’t wanna get mushy but you guys really have touched me. All of you. From Canada to Costa Rica. South Africa to Spain. Thailand to Trinidad & Tobago. Continue reading Surviving the Holidaze Pt 4

This time of year can be so crazy! Holiday parties at work and family festivities galore. This is the season for socializing and we all wanna look our best but the last thing anyone wants is to be stuck in the mall looking for a cute outfit among herds of other shoppers. Don’t worry, boo. I got you. I’ve put together a four part series to help you slay the holidays. The best part about it is you can get each look from just one store so you can get in, get out, and get back to what matters…


Do you have an outgoing, energetic personality? Have you ever danced on a tabletop? Does your hotline stay blinging? If you’ve answered yes to any of these questions then this look is for you.

The Secret Garden

One of the most fun things about running this blog is that it encourages me to get out and explore the city of Toronto that I currently call home. I’ve lived here for a few years now and I am still constantly discovering new things about it. This city is full of so many hidden gems: Mom-and-Pop restaurants, quaint little fashion boutiques, and tucked away natural wonders like the garden in this outfit set. We were doing some location scouting in the heart of the downtown area when all of a sudden I saw this shadowy, inconspicuous entrance that seemed to lead back to some greenery. Turns out it was a beautiful community garden. It was too late to shoot that night so we came back the next day.

I came across photographer William Ukoh (AKA Willyverse) on Instagram a while ago and loved his style so I reached out to him expressing an interest in wanting to work with him. I usually photograph myself so I tend to be very critical of myself on camera and shy to other photographers’ lenses but after a bit I loosened up and we had a fun time.
