Beat the heat

August 3, 2011

In high summer, there’s nothing like a long, flowing maxi skirt to keep you cool. I love this patterned skirt not only for its lovely shades of green, but because it has two hidden pockets. Perfect for hiding treasures while you explore, or a pair of sunglasses while wandering in and out of shops.

Head to toe H&M excluding Delux fedora, Fossil watch, Spring ring, and Toms

This little ring is one of my favorites lately. It pairs perfectly with blue or green tones, as well as floral prints. And I just realized now that my nails kind of match the skirt, both are a broken shattered pattern!

I hope you’re having a great week, and going on your own adventures in the sun!

Over the weekend

August 1, 2011

Just a brief post to get back into the swing of blogging again. I have had a very busy summer so far, volunteering at a summer camp, training for a new job, and going on adventures wherever I can. I recently bought a new camera, and I can’t wait to experiment with it and hopefully update this blog more!

Here are a few pictures of my weekend. I hope everyone is enjoying the lovely summer weather, as I sure am!

Wearing a Delux fedora, H&M tank and necklace

Wearing H&M shirt and necklace, Talula hoodie

Wearing Delux fedora, H&M sweater top and shorts, James&Jules sandals

Summer seems to have only just arrived, so I hope to capture all the summer outfits I have been dieing to wear and will post them here soon. See you soon!

Quick update

February 17, 2011

Hi all! I hope you’re having a lovely week 🙂

Just a quick update before I’m off again. I had a lovely Valentines day with my boy, which involved yummy Greek food and a giant bouquet of flowers (it didn’t fit in our booth!). I had this idea to take some pictures in a photo booth and make a card out of it. I ran out of time to go to a real photo booth, but I found a digital one that really impressed me. This is the strip I ended up using:

If you are wondering about the last photo, it’s actually a flier for this site. I discovered it while reading Jen Loves Kev. Her wonderful husband created this website where people can dedicate their love, and it’s a reminder each time of how much he loves her *squee*. So I thought it would be a perfect Valentines card.

Last weekend I spent the day in down town Vancouver to soak up some Olympic memories and see the cauldron re-lite.  It was a great day, even with a rain storm. But at 4pm when the cauldron burst into flame it stopped raining.

While I wandered around down town, I went into the Bay and was lucky enough to try on some Olympic memorabilia. It was amazing to feel even more of a part of Canada’s victory in Hockey last year (both our men and women won gold!)

So that’s my week in a quick re-cap. See you next week!!

Joe Fresh X Barbie = <3

November 11, 2010

ZOMG Joe Fresh is doing a collaboration with Barbie!!!

Yes I’m pretty excited, cause it’s all so darn cute! They are doing a sleep wear line for girls and women in all its hot pink amazingness! Anyone know when it will hit stores?? I’m really sad they are only doing cool in store events in Ontario, and not in BC where there’s a Joe fresh store! (hello????!!!!!!)

Any ways, I’m still working on my New york posts, there are so many great pictures and memories I am trying to do them justice. That and working full time is kinda hard. Have a good weekend everyone!

Maxed Out!!

August 10, 2010

As one of my last school assignments, I had to create a window display. Now, since I didn’t have any contacts to a store that needed their window dressed,  I got creative and created a mock up version in a shoe box to show what my vision looked like.

I haven’t had this much fun crafting in a long time! I spent hours cutting and gluing and making sure everything was just right. In the end,  I created a window display even I was amazed with. There are two areas I need to fix before I take a final photo for my portfolio, but as it looks today I’m still very proud of it.

I decided on the theme “maxed out” because of the maxi coat, skirt and dress trend for fall/winter 2010. I also made a play on words to stretch that theme and took inspiration from Holt Renfrew’s elaborate windows. It kind of pokes fun at us and our shopping habits, but I think it’s edgy enough to actually be a window display.

That’s all for now, I need to get back to studying!!!!!

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!!

summer is here!

July 6, 2010

Today I took advantage of the first day of nice weather in quite some time by breaking in some new clothes. The city of Vancouver has shut down parts of Granville to cars during the summer and set up astro turf for pedestrians to walk on, and in today’s case sit on to watch the World Cup! I got a friend to snap a quick picture of my outfit in the gorgeous sunshine.

I found these really cute vintage denim shorts last week at Value Village, and the graphic t-shirt is from Forever 21. The outfit was vintage inspired so I paired it with my pink brogues and cat eye sunnies from H&M.

I hope everyone is having a nice summer so far! I know I plan on heading to the beach soon 🙂
