So… I’m going back to the beginning of October to share with you guys, some of the looks that I shot in Paris during Women’s Week! I featured this look on @christianconfidential and a lot of you guys seemed to really like it! This look incorporates a few of my favourite trends at the moment; military prints, and bomber jackets. Usually, when I wear a piece with a print I tend to pair it with more subtle colours to tone the look down but this time I wanted to try something different. I paired these army print trousers with a burgundy hoodie and bomber jacket with hi-top sneakers. For me, this is a pretty bold look but it worked for the occasion and overall vibe that I was going for that week! I wore this outfit during the day to attend a few fashion week presentations followed by a lunch date with some friends in central Paris. I would describe this look as stylish, comfortable, and edgy aka my vibe!

Last season during Paris Fashion Week I went for a total euro-vibe but this time around I wanted to do something a little more street. For the shows and presentations, I’ve been styling my outfits with more colour, oversized pieces and a little more edge. Today, I decided to go for something a little more casual and on the retro side. I’m totally obsessed with this look and I hope that you guys like it too!
Even though it’s super cold over here, the energy around the city is so lit and I’m having the best time! I’m off to grab a bite at Hôtel Costes and see where the night takes me (hopefully, I’ll have a story for you tomorrow)!

Three weeks into 2017 and I’m in Paris for Men’s Fashion Week – I really can’t complain! I absolutely love this city, it’s edge and style just completely moves me. I’m not sure if you noticed but recently, I decided to go BLONDE! I’ve wanted to try this for a while now and finally just said fuck it, lets just do it! I had to find the right outfit to debut it and I think this whole look came together perfectly! I decided to pair my new red serrated jacket with a comfy oversized sweatshirt, a pair of wide leg joggers, some high knee socks and some fresh X_PLR’s to complete the look. I hope that you guys are into it as much as I am! Now let’s see how much trouble I can get into over here haha!

One of the main things that I love about having my blog is the ability to look back at some of the milestones or experiences that I’ve had in life thus far. As I’m sure you guys have noticed, I take a more personal approach to the content that I create – treating each blog post more of like an online journal entry. Coming close to the end of my content from Paris, I wanted to share with you guys something that I’ve been practising for quite some time now when it comes to how I live my life.
If there’s anything that I’ve learned over the last few years, is that nothing in life is guaranteed. 5 years ago, I was a recent college graduate, fell in love for the first time and had a clear picture of what my future would look like both personally and professionally. As the years went by, the same “clear picture” of my what future would look like became less clear, until it wasn’t visible at all. I wasn’t doing anything with my education, I broke up with my first love, and I felt lost in every way possible.
*** side note *** I’m a gemini so I feel things more than most people. My highs are the highest and my lows are the lowest (trust me… I wish I was being dramatic).
Fast forward to the present day, I use the knowledge that I learned from college regularly, I get to do what I love on a daily basis and have found a more positive perspective on life than I ever thought possible… how? – Gratitude!
Gratitude -the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.
Instead of focusing on the negatives that were happening in my life, I started honing in on the positives. Every morning I would wake up and say out loud 5 things that I was thankful for (health, a roof over my head, new underwear, 5 extra minutes of sleep – you name it. It suddenly made me more appreciative of everything that I had in my life, which helped me attract even more! One of my best friends/photographer Shayna and I were having a heart to heart, on one of our last nights in Paris. At one point we looked at each other and said damn, we’re having a moment, while drinking wine on a terrace in Paris – the universe is good! We’re both not necessarily where we want to be in life, and life might not be what we initially pictured it to be but we’re on the right path and for that, we’re thankful! I truly believe that acknowledging the blessings that come into your life (big or small) and being optimistic in unfavourable situations will always lead you to a brighter outcome!
Thank you guys for reading – this was a long one for me!
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!
This trip was extra exciting, as it was the first time that I’d be attending shows for Paris Men’s Fashion Week
…which to me, is huge! Paris is legit the fashion capital of the world and to be able to see how things are done over there was definitely a goal of mine personally and professionally. I’ll get more into the shows and all that good stuff in my upcoming post but in the meantime I wanted to share some of my favourite moments and places while away. I decided to switch things up and bring over my Instagram
aesthetic to the blog for this post!
Ps… I just want to say a huge thank you to you guys for your continued support! Honestly, these experiences wouldn’t be possible without my readers and it truly means a lot to me. If there’s anything that you want to see more of, just let me know!
