read my lips

I often find the lipstick I pick sets my mood for the day. Or maybe the mood of the day determines the lipstick I pick? Chicken or egg, I love what my lipstick choice says about me. So I'm sharing my favourite three shades and how they impact my attitude. 

summers and alleys

I am fascinated with the way this city is built. From the way Toronto has been designed to move people, to the architecture of every neighbourhood, it's been such an adjustment in my eight months here. In particular, I am obsessed with the multitude and variety of street art. It's everywhere, and it's beautiful. Take the above Queen West mural featuring the infamous white squirrel as an example! 

feeling tropical

I'm going to be super honest. Summer plus-sized fashion causes me stress. This summer has been no exception. In fact, I've been more stressed than usual with my new job. But as I've explored the options I feel comfortable and confident in, this palm-leaf dress has risen to the top. 

playing in a virtual world

I studied Interactive Art & Technology at a time where Virtual Reality (VR) was still inaccessible to the masses. It was fun to hypothesize the possibilities and theorize how the technology could be used, but it was not yet in the realm of feasibility to test and execute on the world. Today, not that long after I graduated, the world is a different place. And when my parents visited the other week, I took them to the House of VR

exploring wines of niagara

Despite the fact that I don't think anything will beat the love I have for Okanogan wine, we had a wonderful time exploring the vast wine country of the east. In total, we sampled from eight or nine different wineries, and I walked away with a bottle from five of them.
