Is there anything better than a nature walk in the mountains? Leaving the Edmonton dust bowl for the fresh air of the Rocky Mountains was just what the doctor ordered. The majestic scenery coupled with a cooler that looks like a totem pole (a Burton BEERACUDA) made for the perfect afternoon. I'm already planning elaborate bike rides with fancy canned beverages.

My blogging hiatus was due to some recent travelling. I went from one extreme to the next; Palm Springs, California to Banff, Alberta - the climates couldn't be different.  Fortunately, I had some righteous gear to accompany me.

Enter Burton's Drifter Roller Bag - the perfect carry-on sized piece of luggage. It's super light weight which is awesome as I always seem to pack the heaviest shoes (rubber boots, wooded platforms etc) and has a lovely side zipper to expand the case when you overpack... as I like to do on occasion. I'm nearly positive the wheels are skateboard grade as they look indestructible (where was this suitcase when I was travelling the cobblestone streets of Europe!?) I find that suitcases are either really attractive or really functional, Burton has managed to fuse both of these elements into luggage heaven. Check out their other styles here.

The weather is finally agreeing with my need to bare my legs and with that comes the inevitable desire to power clash. Leopard print with geometric shapes is how I rolled this time around topped with a little boys leather jacket all the while muttering "I'm so fanccccyyy" under my breath thanks to Iggy Azeala and Charli XCX. It's a catchy tune and if you don't want it stuck in your head, probably best not to open pandora's box. But if you're anything like me, you'll listen to it anyway so check it out HERE.

Mixtape Monday - Coachella 2014

coachella mix

I'm off on a little adventure this week to Palm Springs for Coachella... and In-n-Out burger. Let's be honest, I plan to consume a number of cheeseburgers from there over the course of the weekend.

This is my first time going and I'm not sure what to expect. Is anyone else going? I'll meet you by the ridiculously giant ferris wheel - I'll be the girl in the flower crown and the cut offs. Hah! Kidding, I plan on wearing sweat pants with chocolate stains - surely that will make me stand out.

Listen to the mixtape HERE

5 1/2 Things Vol. 2


1. Kelly Cutrone's If You Have to Cry, Go Outside is the ultimate "power bitch's" bible. Having interned at British Vogue, Lula, among a plethora of other places this book speaks to my tender heart. If you want to work in the fashion industry you need a VERY thick skin and who better to tell you how it is than the truth goddess Ms Cutrone. 


2. In my final year of university, I worked on a project with my two friends Kara and Emilia. We were fortunate to get the assignment photographed by Mark Peckmezian, one of Emilia's pals. I have been in awe of his work ever since and nearly fainted when I found out he was shooting for Twin Magazine - one of my all time favourite publications from the UK. Anyway, the above photo is one of the outtakes from our project. His work speaks for itself so check out his website here:

3. You know when you listen to something and you're certain this person was in your head when they wrote it? This whole thing is actually me in a nutshell. When he gets to the part about the pressure of writing in a Moleskine notebook and not wanting to disappoint it, that is truly a daily struggle for me. Marc Maron gets me.


4. I have recently taken to using an antique cigarette case as a business card holder and I'm rather pleased with it. 


5. If this song can't get you dancing, you have no soul.
