To keep up with my Sunday evening theme of TORONTO, I thought I would tell you all about my friend Daniel P's blog: Drogue. That's "as in the French word for an illegal substance" duh. Daniel writes a lot and he writes well, but guess what!? none of it has to do with what he is wearing today or the other mundane things some like to write about endlessly (as if we all care so much). No, instead he has taken the time to delve into some of the major trends and happenings in the fashion/music/media industries and picked them a part for us. I would highly suggest adding it to your blog roll, c'est tres bien. x
I usually let Toronto Fashion Week pass on by without too much attention on my part. Now living across the pond I guess you could say it's even easier to dismiss. But having moved to another country for a substantial amount of time has made me surprisingly patriotic and I find myself constantly talking up Toronto/Canada in general and promoting the country's best talent (in my eyes) as much as I can to anyone who will listen.
Jamie Nelson's El-Mehico work reminded me of my Valley of The Dolls shoot from a couple of years ago. This was a project for my Art Direction class at Ryerson in third year. While I can take credit for the photography, styling and (of course) art direction, I owe the incredible make up work to my dear friend Em. Em and I both up and moved to London within a couple months of each other last year, and are hoping to collaborate on a creative here some time soon. In the mean time, if anyone is in need of a fantabulous makeup artist...holla at meee (and I will put you in touch with Em. Trust me, you don't want me to do anyone's makeup, I can hardly do my own properly). xx

Happy Birthday shout outs to Daniel P, Jules and Mr. Stapleton. You all hold a special place in my heart and are in my thoughts today especially.
To Daniel, Wednesday's words ring true in terms of your fete ce soir...but sadly my travel card has been abducted and I have 2 pounds to my name until god knows when. Once pay day comes, however, we will enjoy an abundance of alcoholic beverages together, promis! x

I can't wait for the arrival of Karen and Steph's first baby...the little one is due in a couple of weeks now, and I am so upset that I won't be able to visit until June! My visit to Blossom boutique last week for the Sousette press day got me thinking that if the happy fam ever comes to visit me in London I can throw an incredibly chic Sousette baby party. Sousette is 'your child's ultimate party favour' so if you are an LDN-based yummy mummy who is a bit stressed about an upcoming bday party...you should probably get in touch with them! x

Last Friday I attended my friend Hind's press event for her client Sousette. Sousette is a London-based Baby Shower Service and the event was held at 'Blossom' in South Ken. aka the cutest baby store of all time. Even though I felt a bit out of place as I am not 'with child' nor do I have a child...I did enjoy sipping on Champagne and trying out M&S's new MINT nail colour while getting a free mani courtesy of Blossom & Jasmine. Oh and did I mention that they had a raffle and I won a free massage!? YEAH! A Blossom & Jasmine masseuse will be coming to my house this week to give me a massage and facial....CANNOT WAIT!
Ps. The above pic shows off my lovely mani and the cute polaroid of Hind & I at the event. x
Move over Belle Du Jour and Girl With A One Track Mind, there's a new bitch in town! Check out my new favourite blog: So I Met this Guy... Within two posts this chick has already had two different Brits between her legs; shagging in every place imaginable from here to Las Vegas, NYC and China (no, really). Love life a little lack luster at the mo? Take a few tips from some of Chloe's many man-eating tales. x

Yessss Alphonse! Let's go To-Ron-Tooooo! I've been obsessed with this track ever since I first heard it on Huggs' Scion Kitchen mix (which is the bomb btw) so obvi I was excited to watch the music video via the Fader website. I guess I'm a bit behind because the post is from January but whatevaaaaaah!! DJ Fathom looking sexxi in a suit too, I love it!!

London Town has taken a bloody cold turn this week. It is FRIGID out!! Even though the sun has been shining I have continuously been reaching for more and more layers to add on. What I could really use right now are some skin-baring minis that keep the body warm...These lovely little numbers by Kage would do just fine I think! I loooove the rich colours, velvety softness and bits of embellishment. I could really use one for tomorrow night as it is getting mighty hard to look cute when all I want to do is remain wrapped up in about 1000 blankets.
