there's a drumming noise in my head

Took that photo last month with Kristina, who I met for the first time that day and was super cool. I have some more shots up on my portfolio, but I'll post it here soon, too.

The assistant gig went along amazingingly! There's not much to say except that I learned so much, and met one nicest and sweetest person I know. It was pretty awesome to learn what goes happens during an editorial shoot, and it was just great. Hopefully I'll get to do it again sometime in the future :)

This week has been soo busy that even as I sit down and watch So You Think You Can Dance (HOW WAS THAT FOR A FINALE? Love Ellen Degeneres) I'm going through photos, uploading, and emailing. I've completed a lot of things on my 'to-do' list which is a miracle because I might finally be caught up to things. Yesterday, I did headshots for a friend and they turned out better than expected. Maybe I'll post a few.

Big Brother is hilarious this season with Brenchel, but I'm Matt all the way. However, I'm still grasping onto the older seasons and am currently watching BB8 (watched the All-Stars on RealityTV a few weeks ago, it was BB day and night and it was awesome), and lovin' the Alice In Wonderland theme throughout the BB house.

Until next time!

don't let me go alone

This summer has probably been the busiest and most productive summer I've ever had. I've still got a few weeks left and I'm trying to do as much as I can before school starts again in September, which will be craaaazzzy.

I'm currently an intern as a teen magazine, and it's been a good ride so far. I've already written two pieces, attended Miss Teen Canada Worlds (backstage, baby!), got six free books to read and review, including the latest Gallagher Girl book, Only The Good Spy Young, by Ally Carter. I absolutely LOVE that series and didn't have a chance before to get it. I can't wait to read it, though I admit I am putting it off because I don't want to have to wait another whole year to find out what happens after :(

For the last two Sundays, I was a photographer for a trial modeling workshop here in Toronto (ran by the Universal Academy of Acting) and that was a fantastic experience. I learned a lot from working with a diverse group of people, as is the case now since I'm starting to actually do portfolio work with people that aren't already my friends. What's super exciting is that tomorrow, I'm going to be a photo assistant in a studio which is right next to the building the modeling workshop was in!

I seriously need to revamp this blog. Something about it just isn't clicking with me. I want to showcase my photography here as well, along with inspiration and fashion stuff. We'll see how that goes :)

inception

One of the best movies I've ever seen. The storyline, the visuals, and the actors were all top-notch and it was just brilliant. I was literally shaking with excitement and fear while everything played it out because it was just so damn amazing.

(A proper blog post coming soon- I have been so busy!)

Anything sheer and lace is so much more amazing in black and white.

autumn anticipation





We are well nearing the end of July and it really is kind of sad. In just a few short months, the ridiculously hot and humid weather will give away to an oranges and reds on the ground and then eventually (for all you northerner's) snow. While I do love the fall, I don't love that it's one season closer to winter. And I can't ever stand winter. I'm like a bear-- all I want to do is sleep during the cold and dreary months.

But even with my strategic avoidance of viewing the Fall/Winter 2010 collections, I'm still constantly reminded that the seasons are coming, whether it be through my Refinery29 daily e-newsletters (which I recommend you subscribe to, they're super easy to read and fun) or other blogs. I can't even walk into a store now without being bombarded by knits and boots, which isn't all that bad...until I feel my wallet start calling out to these beautiful items and then I'm basically screwed.

There's still some time before I can actually walk out fully covered without melting...so maybe enjoying these F/W looks won't be so bad. Here are just a few photos to get you in the colder season's mood. It's not too much, but have I mentioned? I hold a great dislike to cold weather.
