I'm a budding social media marketer, super-stylist, blogger and fashion nerd. I <3 disposable cameras, cupcakes, obscure Swedish bands, LND town and the taste of sea salt in the air. A hopeless romantic, with big hair, a bigger heart with Drum'n'Bass ripping through my veins.
Three a.m. this morning.
Insomnia still eating away at me.
So I played about with my latest obsession the ivory white Fuji film Instamax.
A little gift to myself, despite my financial strains.
Sometimes a girl needs to be spoiled a wee bit.
Still tweaking away at the blog,
keeping swing back and forth as to where my beloved should be headed.
But my focus is clearer now than it has been in months, so that means many many good things.
To a new year, a new beginning and a fabulous new life!
and thank you all for joining and supporting my ridiculous ride.

“The Weeks of Dasha” is stunning conceptual fashion film project by Swedish cinematographer Emil Klang. Here Klang fuses two of his favourite mediums to create a movie series about a fictional young Russian girl, Dasha, who moves to Stockholm and is followed for a year.
Klang has created 52 web-isodes showcasing beautiful fashion pieces created by both international and Swedish designers all worn by the characters featured in the films. So far I have spotted Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair, Hope, Dagmar and Noir et Blanc in what I can safely call an amazing animated look-book.
I have posted the first week’s episode below, be sure to catch up and watch the resthere.
I have been a wee bit bored of the “street style” blogs lately. Most seem to apply the same stand and stare formula featuring cool fashion followers, editors, hipsters etc. There are of course a few exceptions to the rule and Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil is an obvious choice. You can feel his passion through his work, and quite frankly he truly is the sweetest person in the world.
As an admirer of the sleek and chic, Tommy has his appeal. But you see I crave something more.
Something genuine, personal and a little voyeuristic perhaps?
It is here I introduce to you the darling Bill Gentle ofBackyard Bill.
My not so new favorite style blogger whose talent in capturing his subjects in such intimate portraiture is near perfect. Perhaps it’s the nature, the Q&A’s or the brutish handsomeness of his male choices that I find so darn appealing. But there is something here that is truly unique and I am so happy to have it present in the ever torrid sea of style photography.

I stumbled upon Street Etiquette and talented bloggers Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs a few days ago. I was a bit miffed that they had been around for so long and I had missed them.
I stand in awe and wonder! For these boys are exceptional, and I find their coverage of fashion to be honest, original and truly diverse.
The boys and five of their friends have come together to create an online editorial titled, Sewn From the Soul, where they pay homage to their strong and stylish African – American heroes past, present and future. I personally can’t think of a better way to commemorate Black History Month, and I really do hope the boys of Street Etiquette keep doing what they do.
Be sure to check out the full story at Street Etiquette!
A little Phonemara action, of a Globe & Mail Shoot sports utility shoot I worked on this past weekend.
Deep in the heart of the ACC
and the bowels of the Toronto Maple Leaf locker room.
This may not seem like a big deal to most, but apparently it is!
