It has been a surreal and beautiful September/October, and if any of you have been following me on Instagram (view here), you would know that it's been hectic these past two months.
University is an interesting experience and a restricting one for blogging, so I may post less frequently until I learn to manage my abilities in math. 
Don't fret though, you can keep up with me via Tumblr (view here), Twitter (view here) or Instagram where I post most of my day to day activities and musings.
With that being said, heres a little snippet of an entertaining car ride with several babes post Vancouver Fashion Week.
I never believed I would be an attendee, so I'm truly grateful to those who have motivated and pushed me in times of conflict. 

For the night's outfit, I decided to revisit a favourite playsuit I wore over summer, paired with a leather jacket and heeled boots. 

These boots have been a current obsession of mine, since the knee high boots I usually don to school and everywhere else has no heel, and who doesn't love heels?
I can even run in them. 
Yes, finding shoes that one can run in incase of emergency is bliss.
Especially when one is late.
Till next time lovelies!

On me: button up, bikini top Victoria Secret, shorts UrbanPlanet & flip flops Ardene

I know it's almost the end of September, which means time to layer up in sweaters and boots,
but I couldn't resist posting these photos Christy took of me during Summer.
Given my track record with makeup, I usually end up getting koala eyes at the end of every event.
Therefore if you notice a lack of eye liner or eye visibility its because I didn't plan for any of this.
It was around mid-day when we shot this, and as you can tell we weren't ready, but 
I rarely goto the beach, so doing cliche things such as reading and going for gelato was a great way to end summer!
Till next time lovelies!

As common knowledge, fashion week is an excuse where fashionistas, bloggers, and anyone of the sort can dress up to the nines. With Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, it's hard to ignore the epidemic/craze over the street styles and particular "ootd" donned that week. 
Thanks to Vancouver Fashion Week, I'll now have a platform to showcase this outfit. 
Along with my recent marble obsession, I've also been in love with leaf prints, and decided this dress would be a great way to showcase that. The color of the leaves were a unique shade of green that immediately caught my eye. Of course, this look wouldn't be complete without Elizabeths incredible makeup skills. The lipstick and eyeliner added the right amount of edge/flair into the outfit, giving it less of a girly vibe. 
This was the finale look I shot with Elizabeth in the VanDusen Botanical Garden Series, and hopefully she and I will collaborate again in the future!
Till next time lovelies!

Travelled to Paris last month, and decided to catch up with my girl crush Christine.
The agenda for the day was to briskly make a trip to La Fayette, cry over the gorgeousness of everything, get over my heart break via Laduree, transit my arse back to Opera, meet Christine at the steps, and walk to her hotel for a shoot.
Getting back to the hotel meant not knowing where the hotel was, walking for a solid one hour, and realizing the hotel was five minutes away from the train station.
Really it was hilarious.
Within the solid hour of being lost, Christine and I had a heart to heart conversing over Macarons, asian pick up lines, possible dinner locations, and un-canny music taste.
I don't know about you, but that sounds like true friendship.
Till next time lovelies!
