What’s in that purse?

February 16, 2011

First of all, I love purses. Second of all, I love throwing stuff in my purse.

When I was a teenager, me and my best friends would go through each others purses if we were bored and see what interesting things we had in there. Now I try to keep my purse a bit more organized, but I still like having stuff in there just in case.

Everyone by now has done a “what’s in my purse” post, so I thought I would share what’s in mine. I really like Stef’s post from Keep your Guns At Home because her purse is gorgeous!!! And Rebecca The Clothes Horse did this really cute stop motion video of her purse contents a while ago that makes me wish I could make those little videos.

So this is the purse I am currently using, the Kensie Girl cross shoulder bag I picked up cross boarder shopping a while ago:

From left to right: Moleskin day planner and Papermate Biodegradable pen, Rayban glasses, Victoria’s Secret mints, Soapopular hand sanitizer, Clinique Chubby Stick lip color balm & travel hair brush,  Fossil wallet, Harry Potter the Exhibition keychain

These are the basics I use in every purse I carry. Sometimes if I have room I throw in my digital camera and a reusable bag, because you never know where the day will take you. My favorite item at the moment is my Moleskin day planner. It has each week on the left side, and a blank lined page on right where I can make notes for myself that week. I bought a bigger version for school and loved the design, so naturally I bought another one for the new year. Plus it’s super soft to touch, and has a handy ribbon book mark built in.

So what do you carry in your purse? I would love to see!!


Spring feeling

January 24, 2011

It’s like this every year. Our first glimpse of sun and decent temperatures (around 10 degrees) and the west coast is transformed into full on spring! I am so excited to switch my wardrobe to all the cute spring items I have stored away, if only the weather would co-operate!

With spring also comes spring cleaning. I really do need to go through my wardrobe each season and have a toss, sell, or keep bag. I find I hold onto many items of clothing because I am attached. However I need to make room for some of the cute new things I have been finding lately!!

One of my favorite purchases this year hasn’t even arrived in the mail. I have been following blogger Jen from JenLovesKev for a while now, and she became one of Mod Cloth’s Blogger’s of the Month the other week and had a dress named after her. It really fits with her style, which I love, and I knew as soon as I saw the dress it would fit perfectly in my wardrobe. I can see myself wearing it all year round; with cardigans and thick tights right now or on it’s own with a simple belt or necklace in the summer.

Aren’t the little foxes adorable? It also has pockets at the front which for me is a real deciding factor. It has pockets? Done!!!

Then last weekend, I went shopping down by Seattle at the outlets and found myself a great new purse. I really love Kensie & Kensie Girl clothing, not just because they are Canadian but because they create such nice pieces that work easily into my wardrobe. I can always find something I like from Kensie. So when I found this cute purse with a little bow on it, I fell in love! It was super cheap to, around $35!! I almost bought one in a gorgeous blue but decided I really like the shape of this one.

Spring has also livened up my room with this gorgeous new Teen Vogue bed set that I won! While at Teen Vogue Fashion U, there were many displays set up in the lobby we could look at between classes. One of them was a bed with their new bed spreads you can now purchase at JCPenny stores. I entered the contest because I loved the flower print and thought it was really different. One day I came home to three big boxes and inside was this bed set! I was so surprised and happy I couldn’t help dancing around and showing it off to anyone that would look. My dreams are sweeter now that I have this lovely floral comforter to keep me warm at night.

I think the colors really compliment my purple walls, and the comforter would liven up a couch as well since it’s only a twin size. Thank you again teen Vogue for this amazing prize!!!

So that’s been my spring so far, how has everyone else been this year?


Havana Nights Photo Shoot

July 20, 2010

After many weeks trying to organize and co-ordinate this shoot, I am happy to be able to show you the final results!

My original location didn’t work out, but luckily my photographer Raymond Chow had a few ideas up his sleeve that worked out well. We ended up shooting in the gardens outside the library at Langara College one evening, and it was perfect! I had my friend Ariel Peake do makeup and hair, and she did an amazing job! I was really pleased with the eye makeup.

I only chose one to print out for my project, but there were so many good shots I thought I’d share a few of my favorits.

Please let me know what you think, I will be doing some more creatives soon so any feedback is appreciated!!


Photo Shoot

June 28, 2010

I’m very excited to be planning and styling my first independant photo shoot. I’m doing it for my portfolio, and one of my teachers is nice enough to count it as a project for his class.

I’m using Kensie Girl clothing, and the idea behind the shoot is the perfect summer outfit. In my head I can imagine a girl, wandering around in a cute little dress and heels during her summer vacation simply enjoying life. I want to do this photo shoot down by the river because there is a nice little board walk and it will feel like we are out of the city.

These pictures are where I draw my inspiration from, and I hope my end pictures turn out the way they are planned in my head!

Look forward to the final photo shoot images soon, I plan on doing it this saturday, but now it’s weather dependant!

Have a good week 🙂
