Out with the old and in with the new… clothes that is! Spring is finally here and with the arrival of the new season, it’s time to slowly but surely lose those heavy parkas and knitted sweaters and start replacing them with lighter more breathable clothing! With that being said, you’re probably in the market to add some new pieces to your wardrobe. Hudson’s Bay just launched their spring look book featuring a carefully curated selections of brands to match the most stylish of men’s aesthetic. I’ve recently partnered with the brand to highlight and style a few pieces from their portfolio to give you guys a little style inspiration! Continue Reading…
Last week was a special one for those in Toronto that work in fashion. Toronto Fashion Week is one of my favourite times of the year in the city, there’s of course the fashion, the events, the networking and most of all the energy! This season I teamed up with canadian brand Rudsak as a social media correspondent to give you guys behind the scene access and exclusive moments via social media. I’ve been a fan of the brand for quite some time now and they’ve really made a name for themselves by consistently providing quality and innovation season after season. The show was great and although I’m amped for Spring + Summer, the runway collection got me excited about shopping for fall coats and leather accessories. Before heading to the show, I got the chance to put a look together featuring this dope lightweight nylon jacket from the brand, called Lamero. I kept the colour palette light to compliment the jacket and wore a pair of burgundy kicks to give the outfit that little extra something! It’s cool, it’s casual, and fun! Continue Reading…
Hi guys, I hope that your week has started off on a good note! My apologies for being MIA last week, I won’t let it happen again unless I have a super amazing reason (and being busy isn’t one of them). I’m obviously going to talk about this dope casual look that I put together but I wanted to send some positive vibes directly to you guys first . Over the last week or so, I’ve been having some very deep conversations with a few of my close friends and taking some time to reflect on how I’ve been feeling lately. Being a Blogger, I share more parts of my life than most people do and by doing so, I open myself up to more people having perceived notions of me, good and bad (which for the most part, I’m cool with). I mentioned in a previous post, the importance of learning not to care too much about what people think and recently I’ve had a few instances where my advice has been tested. I have pretty thick skin and as much as I’ve learned to ignore a lot of things, negative energy and words can still hurt and get under your skin, sometimes. For those moments that you can’t shake it off right away, just remember you’re only responsible for your actions and not those of others. It’s important to have a strong grasp on who you are, where you’re going and to not let negative people get in the way. Think of these experiences like a test, they only get harder the closer you are to your desired destination. I’m sure I’m not the only one that has these days or deals with these type of situations so I just wanted to share a quick reminder to not let them dim your light. They might not want to see you win **Dj Khaled voice** but I sure do! Continue Reading…
Can you guys believe that it’s February already?! Honestly, the way that time is flying by,definitely freaks me out. Which kind of leads me to my point for this blog post. Over the last few months, I’ve learned more & more how valuable time truly is and how important it is, not to waste it. Here are a few things that I’ve been putting into action lately and have seen some pretty stellar results so far.
Hi guys, I hope that life has been treating you well these days. I’m definitely still on a high from my trip to Paris. It’s my third time traveling to this beautiful city and I must admit that every time I visit, I fall more & more in love. I feel like everyone has a place in the world that makes them feel extra special inside, and for me, it’s Paris!
A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to head out to New York City for the global launch of the NMD sneakers by Adidas Originals. Two days in Soho, learning about kicks, a party and having free time to explore my surroundings sounds like the perfect Break From Toronto,to me. New York is that magical city where no matter how many times you visit there will always be something new to discover. The NMD shoe was inspired by street culture and New York was the perfect place to launch it. Whenever I search for street style inspiration the first two places that come to mind are New York and Paris. The NMD was designed for the the wanderer, the urban traveler, someone that appreciates the old but is always looking for what’s next. I don’t know about you but it sounds like these sneakers were made for our generation. This is the first release from the NMD series and from the looks of it, things are about to get real LIT. Check out some of my favourite snaps and a few of my recommendations next time you’re visiting Soho.

Until next time,
Hey guys, here’s a short style post that I shot last week while working in New York City. One of the things that I love about traveling is the fact that you’re usually forced outside of your comfort zone. It should come as no surprise that my team and I definitely follow a certain pattern or theme when it comes to the content that we create and let’s just say New York didn’t make it easy for us haha! Like I mean, do clean plain walls exist in Soho?! I don’t think so! We shot this look while out exploring the neighbourhood on our first day. I’m really into anything longline right now and I love this longline jacket I recently got from my friends over in Europe. I wore it over a black cape, and a grey sweatshirt with some ripped denim and a fresh pair of high top kicks. Stay tuned for my full NY recap post!

Hey guys, I hope that you’re all doing well. Can you believe we’re already eleven days into December and I haven’t even started my Christmas shopping yet?!? I just came back from a two-day trip to New York with Adidas that I can’t wait to share but in the meantime I put together a little style post for you guys.
