As soon as my ticket was booked to Montreal I instantly started thinking about what emerging labels based there I wanted to shoot with. The first one that came to mind was Atelier New Regime. Modern. Street. Well-designed. Socially aware. In my mind, this collaboration was a long time coming…

They say April showers bring May flowers but so far all April has brought Toronto are last gasps of winter in the form of blizzards. These inches of snow, cold winds, and slushy streets have me reminiscing on my quick trip to Miami a few weeks ago.
I covered a bit of my trip on Instagram when I shared my experiences exploring:
the luxurious Design District with every high-end fashion retailer you can imagine from Fendi to Margiela, to Dior,
the Institute of Contemporary Art where I got a one-on-one tour of their exhibit by artist John Miller,
the breathtaking sculptural work of Damien Hirst and fine dining in South Beach, and of course
the Dash Miami storefront because basically, YOLO.
And even after all that, I still had a few more adventures I had to get into in my few days there…

Over the past few weeks since I came back to Toronto from NYC I’ve been in this strange space where I felt like I was trying to find myself again. I’d only been gone for a bit over a week but somehow when I came back the city felt different. I felt different.
New York has this way of changing me a little every time I go. It’s scary. It’s bustling. I often get lost in it. But in it I also feel reborn. Travel is like a reset button for my life, shaking it up entirely.

Hey guys! I apologize for being gone for over a week now. If I told you everything I’ve been working on then you’d completely understand. From working a ton lately (including a music video for a certain pop superstar I mentioned on IG), to celebrating All-Star Weekend/Valentine’s Day in Toronto, to now finding myself in NYC for the second half of the Fall/Winter 2016 season of New York Fashion Week. This is my first time here for NYFW and I really wanted to make the most of the shows and events I was able to get access to.
I love free stuff so discovering the TRESemme Runway Studio at Spring Studios in Manhattan was perfect for me. At first I wasn’t even planning on getting anything done, I just wanted to take a look around. However, after meeting the photographer there who expressed an interest in wanting to shoot me, he convinced me to change up my ‘do. I came in with two cornrows I had hurriedly done on my way out the door and left with four neatly plaited rows expertly braided by a very friendly hairstylist named Kiki.While she worked we chatted about where each of us is from (She’s from Boston but lives in Florida now), the recent airing of this year’s Grammy Awards, and her favorite types of hairstyles to do on clients. Check out my collage below for the play-by-play pics.

New year, who dis?
I know I said here that I’m not into New Years Resolutions and I’m still not into the idea of them but I’m a sucker for goal-setting and self improvement and the start of a new year just feels like the right time to look at life, see where I’m at, and what I’d like to work on.

Yucca Mofongo. Castillo San Felipe del Morro. El Yunque. Three things you may not be familiar with now but you will be once you read about my summer adventure in Puerto Rico.
