Oh, what a love I have.

Miss you.


So, Canada!

February 21, 2010

I’ve been realizing more and more how much I actually love Canada. I’ve kind of in way forgotten how fortunate I truly am to live in such a beautiful country. You tend to take it for granted as you make your ‘To Do & See’ list for other parts of the world. Everything else seems far grander when you compare it to sights you’ve lived around for years. This weekend I bumped in to a couple sporting their Olympic gear on the street. I don’t know what got in to me but I had this sudden surge of excitement! I think the couple thought I was completely mad with the words coming out of my mouth a mile a minute but it was nice to converse with them about our homeland. I love how Vancouver is hosting the Olympics this year, the build up of winning some medals leaves me in a constant state of anticipation for each winter event I watch. I LOVE IT!
With that said, I certainly do not miss our winters. The past few days in London have felt like Spring. There are even flowers springing up and budding! It’s February? How I love the weather here.

Somerset House was beautiful, as for the crowds that it drew in, ugly. I didn’t have a ticket nor did the rest of the girls standing with me but I witnessed a few sneaking in to the BFC tent. It was complete chaos because of HoH, so much so that I had to leave. Girls can be so vicious! Everyone’s dark side came out yesterday. I’m glad I opted out of that fashion mob and went to a near by cafe to watch a live stream of Unique & HoH. Best seat in the house!

I found this article from The Global Herald very insightful. The way the world is going, bloggers are multiplying. I do agree that most fashion bloggers think they should have a front row seat, while in reality they should stand outside with the fashion mob like the rest of us. However there are a few blogs that I often frequent who I believe shouldn’t be classified as just a blogger but a journalist. I enjoy my daily dosage of the handful of blogs I have ‘favourited’ on my mac. It’s a very personal style of journalism I find. Posts aren’t filtered or edited, they’re very raw and unique to the so called blogger voicing their opinion.

With that said, check out these beauts from Holly Fulton!

Killerrrr shades

Love, love, love the envelope clutches & sky scraper geometric shaped dresses.

Whoa, so I’m a bit Alexa obsessed today, and well… have been every day this February for that matter. Thanks to British Vogue’s special feature on my girl crush number two.

HEY remember I mentioned I took a silk screening class last weekend, well it was more than ever I hoped for!

Not only did I come out with an awesomeeee canvas book bag I printed on myself, we had Afternoon Tea. The cutest, most delicious pastries I’ve eaten alongside tea in china tea cups. I felt so proper & girly. It was wonderful!

Thanks Papered Parlour!

January, where did you go?

After being hit with two flu’s in one month it’s nice to finally be back with the living.

Mac is back ✓

Note to self: Never drink hot liquids near lap top.

However, despite my immune system falling by the wayside, I was still able to explore this beautiful city & spend cash like I was making it.

LFW will soon be upon us!

Friday February 19th to the 21st I’m camping out to see all the buzz. I’m only a thirty minute train ride away instead of an ocean & a grueling five hour flight, I’m totally taking advantage!

Completely digging granny chic, how I love this trend. Minus every model and celebrity going grey, I do love the frocks it has inspired.

Is it just me or have you had about enough of the thirteen year old fashion blogger, Tavi who never seems to fail at looking awful, awful, awful.

For now I think I’ll just stick with my Aritzia ‘Grandpa’ sweater and brogues.

This weekend I’m learning how to screen print! YES to customized canvas bag!

First Snow, First Month

December 16, 2009

I love going out & finding THE perfect Christmas tree. My father & I used to leave the city’s lights behind us for the day & ventured deep in to the country, trekking through knee high snow to find our beautiful Scotch Pine or our traditional Douglas Fir.
Unfortunately traditions are set aside for a year, seeing that I reside in the UK for the time being. That didn’t stop the boys & I from decorating our faux tree to the nines.

I think it’s quite fitting that on the day marking my one month in London, we have our first snow fall of the season. It’s beautiful. The change in weather however, made me nostalgic. One of my favourite times of the day is in the evening when I go out for my run/bike ride. The brisk London air hitting my already rosy cheeks, the smell of burning fireplaces & the glow of Christmas lights escaping the windowpanes & entering the streets makes me feel at home.
I love it here.
& it’s not because TopShop is a ten minute walk away?

Also, how cute is this number for a late night bike ride? Yes, please!
