LOVE UNITES Pride Campaign – Adidas Canada

Hi angels – I hope that the month of June has been really good to you! I’m back on the blog today to share a cool campaign that I had the pleasure of being apart of.

I got the chance to work with my Adidas Canada family on the launch of their 2021 Pride collection – Love Unites! I’ve worked with the brand in the past around Paris Men’s Fashion Week, Adidas Originals and Adidas Running launches, but this was a first for Pride.

Once I learned about the messaging of the campaign and seeing the collection, I knew that I wanted to be apart of it. The campaign is all about love – loving yourself, loving your peers for who they are, the freedom to love whoever you choose, and uniting over sports and creativity.

This is a message that I stand behind and in all honesty something that I needed to hear growing up. I really do hope that by creating these types of campaigns, and increasing representation in all forms of media that the next generation are not only able but encouraged to truly be themselves!

For the love of sport, and the love of love!

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 :).

What’s It Giving?

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 from COS 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 :)>

Gratitude

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’.

Like Riding A Bike

Damn Daddy, it’s been a minute since I’ve worn these boots and my feet aren’t used to them at all. Sigh, I thought it would be like riding a bike but definitely not, lol.

Anyways, this is a cute little look I put together + shot the other day. I’m really digging the whole wide-leg denim vibe these days and the way they add drama to every outfit.

I wore this to an outdoor brunch with my girlfriends but I would also wear this to a casual meeting or for a day of shopping. It’s also giving me a Parisian vibe, which you all know I l-o-v-e!

Summer Diary

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 :).

Nail Art

Elevated Mani

So, y’all know I’m not new to the whole mani/pedi game. Just like clothes, I feel like nails tell a lot about you, whether you want them to or not.

Instead of opting for my classic vibe, I decided to try something new and add some nail art to the mix and…. I’m in love!

Being the overthinking Gemini that I am (sigh), deciding on the designs and finger placements took a lot of time. I’m very indecisive and the more options I have the worse I get, and I’m not kidding, lol.

Check out the different designs I went for below and let me know what you think. If you know me, you know that this is v me. From the eye roll emoji to the $ sign to the astrology mention – it screams Christian Thompson in the classiest way :).
