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!

West Coast Diary

So, you know the saying ‘when you make a plan, God laughs’ I feel like that’s been my life for the last year and a bit. Like most of you, I had v big plans for 2020 (like, life changing BIG) and then covid happened and everything fell apart.

I was emotional, lost and not sure how to process everything. It felt like my life was unraveling right in front of my eyes and there was nothing I could do about it. I’m a low key planner (I know, odd for a Gemini) and I’m not one to play the victim role. My entire life, I have always found a way but with all of the restrictions and health concerns that covid brought, I really couldn’t think of a way to pivot.

Long story short, I hit a very low point, to which I decided to stop trying to control things that were out of my control and to start listening attentively to the Universe.

Fast forward to 2021 and I’ve ended up magically on the west coast of Canada – Vancouver, BC to be exact. I won’t go into details yet, but just know that it’s beautiful here, very different from Toronto but beautiful none the less.

I’ve been taking some time to just take in everything that this city has to offer (nature included, who am I?!?!) and finding + rebuilding myself.

After being in Toronto, which is one of the most locked down places in North America, it feels good to be able to have some normalcy back in my life (Vancouver is still taking precautions with covid but the restrictions are a lot less strict).

I’m going to come back to this in another post but we’re going to pause this topic for now until I’m able to share the rest with you at a later date!

So, that being said. You guys know that I LOVE me a travel diary, so doing one (or more) for Vancouver is a must! My girl Jaime, happens to be here as well so we’ve been making the most of our time, exploring and getting to know the city.

As always, I’ve snapped some pics along the way for you. Some street style, scenery, eats + everything in between – I hope you like it!

Aries Energy

Now don’t get confused with the title of this post. I’m a Gemini x 2 (sun + rising) with a Sagittarius moon but I’ve got to show love to Aries season cuz it always feels like the season that things finally start to pick up speed – and I’m here for it!

I told you guys last time that I’m in the process of making changes in my life (professional + personal) and I’m almost ready to share them with you guys… but not just yet. There’s a few things that just need to be ironed out but we’re almost there and I’m very excited about this new journey I’m about to venture on.

It’s been a while since Ive been this excited and nervous so I’m taking it as a good sign + the timing seems pretty divine – I’m definitely feeling my angels all around me.

That being said, I didn’t want to neglect the blog so I’m back with a cute style post for ya! This is such a simple yet chic look that I put together and wore on a warm early spring day last week.

It’s giving me early 2000’s pop star off duty vibes and I’m lovin’ it! I shot this by myself with my tripod and a remote on a little street in downtown Vancouver and I’m pretty impressed with the turnout. Take a look at the rest of the pics below and let me know what you think! xx

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.

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!

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!

Don’t Keep Me Waiting

@christianconfidential Happy February, happy new year, happy 2020! I’m back on the blog today with an impromptu style post.  I’ve been fairly MIA for the month of January on all of my channels. I really needed a minute to get things in order and put in some behind-the-scenes work  on a few things that you’ll start seeing shortly!

Anyways, let’s get into this look, sigh…it’s such a vibe. I got this Houndstooth-patterned Coat from H&M two weeks ago and I’m in love with it! I’ve been dressing it down a lot  but today I decided to dress it up and really test its versatility.  I wore this look to a fashion related meeting followed by an early dinner and I felt comfortable in both settings.

I hope you guys like it!

Business Man

@christianconfidential I’m a business man and I mean business in this look! I shot this outfit a few days ago and I felt like such a boss wearing it. This is one of those looks that you put on when you’re feeling good about yourself and you’re ready to take on the world! I love this oversized blazer that I picked up from ASOS and how it just completes the vibe. I could’ve opted for plain black denim but I felt that the leather pants component added a bit more luxe and edge.

See a few more pictures that I snapped below. I hope you guys like it!

Make It Summer But In Black

@christianconfidential

Hey guys,  guess who’s back with another look! Honestly it feels good to be shooting content again, especially with this amazing weather we’ve been having this week in London! My friend Natasha and I went out for afternoon drinks on a cute terrace in South Kensington, called April’s Cafe, and this was the look I opted for. I wanted something that embraced summer but was still super chic. I went for an all-black look (screams summer, I know) but switched it up by wearing a shirt with a floral/plant print. To me, this was a great way to add a little more fun to my look, rather than playing it safe with a plain black tee or shirt.

I love the way this outfit came together, it’s easy, it’s classy and just totally my vibe at the moment. Check out  a few more pics below!
