Edition by John Boyega for H&M

I told y’all I’d be back soon and here I am… back with another street style post! I shot this look yesterday and I’m in LOVE with it. The main pieces are from the recently dropped #EditionByJohnBoyega for H&M collection (coat, vest + pants).

I love this collection because I think it’s very diverse but at the same time there’s a cohesive element to it that ties each piece together. These are three of my favourite items that I could’ve styled each piece separately, but I loved the way they came together for this fit. This is my “Get The Bag” Autumn edition, lol.

Scroll down for the full look + more pics! 🙂

XOXO, Christian

Montreal

Montréal Photo Diary

Well…it’s been a while, lol. I am so sorry that I left y’all hanging for this long, but I’m back with lots of stuff coming up! I also think that it’s time for a site revamp, so let me make that happen.

Anyways, I came on here to talk about my recent trip to MontrĂ©al, so let’s talk about MontrĂ©al.

My girl Sasha and I went on a quick road trip to MontrĂ©al for work + a change of scenery. We went during the week so I wasn’t sure what to expect but as always, we had the best time.

Sasha and I have been friends for 10+ years and she’s actually the last person I traveled with (Dominican Republic) before the world shut down in 2020, so we were definitely due for some fun. We stayed at The Four Seasons MontrĂ©al – which did not disappoint.

What We Did & Where We Went; Explored Old Montreal (my favourite part of the city)| Shopping at Ssense | Brunch at Tommy Café + Marcus Restaurant | Dinner at Béatrice + Makro | Workout at the hotel gym |

As always, I took some pictures along the way so scroll down + take a look.

Be back soon, I promise!

Summer Celebrations

So, this summer one of my closest friends got married to her Prince Charming and I couldn’t be happier! As most of you know, I’ve spent the majority of 2021 on the west coast but I had to make a trip back home to attend + be apart of this wedding.

Stace and I go back 13+ years and she has one of the purest hearts that I’ve ever come across. She’s the life of the party and makes friends everywhere she goes – her bridal party consisted of 12 people, lol.

That being said, her and her partner Alex had a two-day celebration and it was THE wedding of the summer! The vibes were on point, the sun was showing out and we just had the best time!

I was trying to be as much in the moment as I could, so I only took a few pics. Scroll down to get a glimpse of the vibe over the two-day celebration!

Gemini Season

Hi bb’s – did you miss me?! I missed y’all so much. I was doing so well with my blog updates and then life got a little wild (lol)… but I’m back and it’s Gemini season!

I’m acting like Gemini season moves slow, when in reality it’s when things really start to ramp up. Between social media content, my social life and this new venture I’ve been working on, oh and my birthday, it’s going to be a high energy month! Daddy misses the hustle and bustle though haha.

So, I’m still in Vancouver and I’m finally getting used to it. Toronto will always be home and I’ll definitely be going back, it’s just when is the question?!?! I miss my friends, and the city vibe but from what I’ve been hearing, it’s going to be awhile until things are back to normal.

Anyways, I wanted to share this cute look that I shot over the weekend. Just a heads up, you’re going to see a lot of cropped tops this season, it’s just the wave that I’m on. I love this look, it’s relaxed, it’s athletic but it’s put together. This is a run errands fit or a casual meet up with friends kind of vibe – I hope you like it!

cozy vibes cont’d

wow, can you believe it guys? I’m back on the blog within the span of a few days, I don’t know who I’ve become but I like him, lol.

On the real though, I hope that you guys are doing well. I’ve taken a lot of time to myself to reflect on life and make some changes that I hope will help bring some needed positivity + steps in the right direction in regards to my personal life, career and everything in between.

Mental health is no joke and this past year has really tested me in ways that I couldn’t have imagined. I’m happy to say that I do believe that I’ve turned a new leaf and I’m in a much better space mentally and spiritually but trust me, it wasn’t easy. I’ll share more details about my journey another day but I want you all to know that life is v precious and you should never feel ashamed to ask for help.

Also, never give up on your dreams, no matter how out of reach they might seem! If no one else believes in you, I believe in you and what’s meant to be will be, I promise you that!

Anyways, this is supposed to be a style blog and here I am talking about my feelings and no mention of my style, lol. I’ve beeeeen living in sweats for too long but I’m making a promise to myself that I’ll switch it up more often, at least for the blog.

I wore this on Valentine’s Day, super simple, super cozy vibes. It’s from H&M women’s collection, some say it’s grey but it’s giving me a dark grey/purple tint which I love – do you?

I only took a few pics that I liked before getting brunch and snacks so see them below.

Valentine’s Day

Well, I’m back and a lot sooner than I expected, lol. There’s a lot of changes that are going on in my life right now and I can’t wait to share them all with you.

In the meantime, I worked on a cool campaign with Bulova watches for Valentine’s Day and I wanted to share the images with you. It’s a giveaway that’s taking place on Instagram here, and I wanted to be a part of it because 1) I really like the brand, 2) I love Valentine’s Day (single or in a relationship, lol), 3) you guys get a chance to win a dope watch!

I hope that you guys have a great weekend filled with love and light!

Good Days

Well guys, we made it to 2021! I’m going to hold off on my predictions for the year, as last year was…well you guys were there, lol.

Currently, in Toronto we’re in a lockdown so there’s not too much happening on my end but I’m hopeful that things will change for the better soon (prayer hands).

I woke up today in a good mood and decided to take some pics and showcase some of my favourite items at the moment – linked below!

I hope that you guys are all holding up and that this year brings you a little closer to your dreams and desires!

Photo Diary

Winter Diary

One thing about my apartment is that no matter what season it is, the lighting ALWAYS delivers. No but for real, the lighting in my place has been soooo on point and has definitely helped with my seasonal depression, lol.

Y’all know I love my travel photo diary entries and since I’m not traveling this year I decided to give you guys random photo dumps on certain months.

Here are a few pics that I took throughout the month of December 2020 – some from projects, some just because and everything in between (all shot on my iPhone :).

2020 Self-Portraits

Come all the way through skin, haha! Guys, this year has been a lot, like A LOT, so I’ve been celebrating even the smallest of wins, like having a great skin day. I woke up this morning and the sun was beaming through my apartment and I had just got this beautiful jacket from the H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection – which I absolutely LOVE and said you know what, lets do a little self portrait shoot.

I simply used a white wall, played with the direct sunlight and my iPhone – yes all of these were shot with my iPhone, vibes right?!

Anyways enjoy these pics and a few BTS lifestyle pics and I’ll make sure to be back soon!
