Heading north for the summer

I'm headed to the northland for the entire summer, but! I have scheduled blog posts for the summer, so there will still be some interesting stuff being posted at least once every sunday, with a few surprise posts sprinkled around!

Skater.... girl?

The Sartorialist
I don't think there is anything more cool than a girl that skateboards. I've tried to learn but I can't seem to get further than 3 feet without freaking out about losing my balance!

Beach Day!

All the Mountains
It's hard to believe it but summer is basically here! I managed to get down to the beach with some friends today for our first swim of the year! The water was surprisingly warm and had some great little waves, it's great to be able to get to the beach and feel like you are on vacation in your own city!

Iris Apfel





Iris Apfel made a few appearances in the Bill Cunningham documentary, and immediately went looking at photos of her. Iris Apfel's style is so interesting, and her signature glasses are what really had me, they are awesome!

Bill Cunningham New York



My mom and I just watched the documentary "Bill Cunningham New York". And it was just great. I've always enjoyed looking Bill's "On the street" column in the New York Times, but I never really knew how the whole making of the column went down. I thought that Bill would have had a plan and gone around taking photos of people wearing the selected style for the week. I was soo wrong. Bill just lets the ideas come through the photos. The whole process is really fascinating. And 83 year old Bill takes all of the photos by himself, and always counts on his trusty bicycle to get him from point A to point B. I would highly recommend the documentary, Bill will have you smiling in no time, trust me!

Our Gigi

Gigi or Groovy Grandma as we called her, was quite the lady; she was an amazing grandma, mom, cook, hostess, friend, wife, aunt, mother in law (the list goes on), and notably our Gigi had the most amazing sense of style. She would always be wearing the most amazing outfits, co-ordinated and fun, topped off with her signature bangles, clinging around on her wrists, a sound that will forever remind me of Gigi.

Ever since I was a little girl I was in love with Gigi's shoes. Every time my family went over to my grandparents house I would walk in and say hello to everyone then disappear for a while, I was up deciding what shoes to wear, looking through all of my options and trying on my favourites, before finally choosing what pair I would wear for the night. My feet grew past Gigi's dainty size 7s before I was 13, but I still found myself just looking through her collection many times after that. Although I think Gigi really had a thing for shoes, she owned quite the gorgeous collection of other fashionable items, coats, purses and Jewelery. The ladies of the family all got a few pieces of Gigi Jewelery, the two photos below are my favorites. I wear the two rings all the time and my favourite thing about them is the fact that I know I have a little piece of Gigi with me when I have them on.
