SOMETIMES WE JUST NEED SOMEONE TO LISTEN WITHOUT JUDGEMENT AND SOMETIMES IT'S A CERTAIN PERSON
PERFECT PAIRING SONG OF THE DAY
If there is someone you care enough to think about at least once a day, never give up. We owe each other nothing but without each other we are nothing. We all may have faults and I will quickly know yours even though it may take a life time for me to uncover mine. Don’t let each other go to bed upset and sometimes all you have to is listen.
No matter how thick the wall of frustration is you, me and we are worth it.
When I think back to my tween years and how I dealt with fashion - well to be honest I really try not to think back to such a horrid time. Let’s just say I tried a lot of styles but none of them really accentuated my positive aspects. Besides all that trendy fashion wasn’t always accessible. So quirky t-shirts and awkward cut pants have fueled what is now photo albums of fashion shame. When I get the courage I will definitely post some!
Nevertheless, these days it actually is much more likely to see young girls having fun with their fashion without regrets because it is so accessible. I thought these ladies were very dressed for their age and yea super fashionable down to the accessories.
don’t you love that chair??….ya I bought it for 3 euros, and he wanted to sell it to me for 25. HA!

Oh to be young and to have fun with fashion and for Paris to be your canvas! Alison, caught me with her platinum blonde hair then her Shooooes! She’s a great example of high street meets designer, but not in the conventional way. She mixes and matches so well you would have never know she loves shopping at H&M. You can still have your own style when you shop and trend big stores, you just have to be more creative with your look.
Now please scroll down and watch the video of how cute Alison is and how much of an idiot I am….and yes I just started with these videos so I promise to learn from my mistakes.
I think and yes this is only me talking and yes this is a generalization but for the most part Canadians or at least my fellow Toronto-ians have a knack for complaining about the weather. Cold or warm - what have you. But weirdest thing is that when it is cold we don’t really dress for the weather! Until recent years winter weather wear has become hip! Usually everyone tries to layer every other season then throw on a beat up black coat over it all.
On my last trip to Paris I noticed most people were wearing the down-filled Canadian goose jackets…who woulda thought?
Now I’m just waiting for the time these L.L.Bean rubber boots really hits the international market. They are super warm and comfy and besides all that why waste money on nice shoes that salt is going to eat up anyway?
One of the best shops for vintage shopping on the run and a definite must of any Paris trip is KILIWATCH. They have the best selection of vintage from all the vintage stores I’ve ever been in… like I mean the world …. I’m serious! So go go go, even it’s just to people watch.
Coralie + Lola caught my eye with their amazing hair and of course their style!
Coralie in her H&M geisha inspired sandals. I’ve covered this sort of sandal and sock combo before in London… what do you think?? I think it most things can work if you own it and really work it. Even if it probably doesn’t work on me.
Hiding in the market of Porte de Clignancourt is a pretties of jewelry shops. My mouth honestly salivates while browsing through each vignette. The whole time fantasizing how I would wear it and where I would go. I have to start coming up with events and start making purchases. Is it unrealistic to make this shop my only stop on my future wedding registrar?
Beyond the beauty of gems the owners Jason & Heidi Ellis are absolutely lovely people. These two Brits opened up shop in Paris and every time I visit the city it’s heart warming to check in on this store.
One of my favorite places to visit in Paris is Palais de Tokyo a place dedicated to modern and contemporary art. My travel friend I took an amazing culinary class which was part of a temporary exhibit, which I will definitely post photos of soon!
It’s also where I bumped into Mika and Jiyoung on their way to dinner.
***WHAT ARE YOU CERTIAN OF NO MATTER WHAT? / WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR THE RIGHT MOMENT TO DO? / WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST? / IF GIVEN SOME MORE TIME WHO WOULD YOU SPEND IT WITH?
So Happy New Year! a couple of days late but no less meaningful. I hope everyone enjoyed they’re night with hopes of many more to come.
I usually don’t use this time of year to reflect but it suddendly dawned on me that yes 2011 is the year of the unknown for me…well as unknown as it can be. Hopefully in some months from now if I don’t drop the ball, I can finally have the masters that I’ve been working for. After that I’m just not sure where I’ll be. New York is always calling me but these days I’m thinking it can wait a little longer.
But whatever happens hopefully all good, I’m so excited for the unknown!
***THAT I AM LOVED + AND THAT I CAN LOVE / GRADUATE WITH FLYING COLOURS / YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE & I MISS YOU MUCH / MY FAMILY + FRIENDS / ….AND IT WOULD BE NICE to meet a man who gives a damn haha
HERES TO 2011!
PS this was my new years eve outfit …. my boots are from Paris, and if your questioning them I ask you to wait 6 months and ask again!
