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.
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!
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 :).
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!
Sigh… today was one of those ‘What Am I Doing With My Life’ days, and truthfully, just like Sway, I don’t have the answer, lol. On the plus side, the sun was shining and seeing that the decent weather days are numbered in Toronto, I decided to take advantage of it.
What’s this look giving? It’s giving me, pretty on the outside and super EMO on the inside lol! I use my site + social channels as a way to express how I feel so on days that I don’t feel like I have it all together and I decide to post, I’m going to be authentic.
That being said, just because the pandemic is getting the best of me, doesn’t mean I won’t still give you LEWKS (when I decide to post lol).
Super simple outfit but with a touch of edge. I recently got these leather boots fromCOS and I’m loving them. I think they pair so well with these cargo pants and the cropped knit sweater from H&M Studio.
Y’all know I love accessorizing and I feel like incorporating some of my chunky jewellery and the pop of colour from my toque really elevated this everyday look.
I’ll be back soon, and hopefully in a better mood :)>
So, I’m definitely not an outdoors type of guy but I’ve been looking for different sources of inspiration other than the four walls in my condo. Let’s just categorize these pics as me trying- a -ting, lol.
In all honesty, I’m pretty happy with the way that they turned out. I found this little nook of nature on my way to the gym one day and thought it would make for a cool background for a look.
The look is simple and cozy but works very well with the scenery. I wouldn’t get used to seeing photography like this from me but it’s cool to try something different every now and then.
Also, I’m feeling very grateful for what I have in my life right now and just wanted to share that through these images – I hope you guys like em’.
Whew chyle, summer in Toronto is always a vibe, and I’m glad to say that even the pandemic couldn’t ruin it. Mind you, it was very different but after the months that we’ve had indoors, it’s definitely been the highlight of the year thus far!
I decided to do a summer photo diary – which includes some of the projects that I worked on, random captures in my phone and golden moments with some of my girls.
Honestly, life is truly what you make it and right now I’m making the most of mine with the options that are available and I hope that you’re doing the same :).
