Just Came Back From The Photo Show @ The Gallery

I just got in from The Photo Show and I wanted to post a few photos that I took. I am so happy that I took the time to make it down tonight:)

If you are in Calgary, the Photo Show will be at The Gallery for about a month. So head on down for a look!

The Building Project

The Focus Project

The Amplifier Project


Where Have I Been?

I've been MIA again:(

I've gotta thank my lack of organizational skills for that. It was roughly this time last year that I was in need of a new notebook, (without one I am truly lost).

I currently have two note books in tow which are filled to capacity. So I went shopping for another one last week, but couldn't decide on "the one".

Instead, I've been organizing my life on scraps of paper and post it notes. Let's just say that it hasn't been working.....

I will get my act together by the week-end lol. A visit to Chapter's is a must!!!

Let me fill you in on what I'll be up to tonight.

There's the Photo Show at the Gallery tonight. So I'm heading out in 45 minutes to check it out.

3 different projects will be on display showcasing talented Calgary photographers.

There's the Building Project by Heather Saitz - a showcase of two historic Calgary apartment complexes and the vibrant community that exists within them.

Then there's the Amplifier Project by Lindsey Baker & Justin LaFontaine - an exhibit that portrays people and their amplifiers.

Lastly, there's The Focus Project by Randy Gibson that takes you on the journey of being in focus and out of focus.

I'm out....

Just Saw This Video.....

I can't believe that I'm posting another OMG remake. I don't even really like the song!!

But after I heard this version mixed with a little "Rudeboy" by Rihanna, I had to share~

Fashions For The Rain....

It's been raining quite a bit here in Calgary and I've got to be honest, I'm not lovin it. There are only so many days that I handle seeing gray skies. I know that we got a break with a gorgeous week-end, but last week was filled with rain as well.

Today, was another dreary day (as per usual) with periods of light rain. Nothing to complain about really until I left work. The downpour of rain was intense. And,the fact that I was wearing flip flops, didn't help at all....

I arrived home "damp", (even with my trusty umbrella) and realized that I just might want to add to my rain gear collection.

So, I surfed the net for some stylish pieces to tackle the rain in.


Chooka "Posh Dot" Rain Boot

Felix Rey "Rain Rain Go Away" Clear Bubble Umbrella

Rainforest Twill Raincoat

The "Anita Bubble Ring" will not protect me from the rain, but it's cute and I like it:)

It's a great day for Canadian Hip Hop~

Toronto is experiencing "Drizzy" pandemonium today!!!

It's official y'all, Drake's debut album "Thank Me Later" is now in stores.

As a transplanted Torontonian, I've gotta say that I wish that I was back in the city to witness the Drizzy craziness today.

To be honest though, the world is showin Drake some mad love today. The twitter feeds have been going crazy!

I've listened to most of the album and I'm very satisfied - proud as hell....

I'm gonna cop the album this evening!

This is where it all started - "Do what you do"

Mental Wealth Spring 2010 Collection~

I know this commercial has been out for a while, but I just saw it today....I think it's mad cool, so I had to share:)

These T's are inspired by 90's hip hop (the best decade of my life)

Mental Wealth - Spring/Summer 2010 Commercial (Directed by Stuey Kubrick 2010) from Stuey Kubrick on Vimeo.

I checked out their site and most of their T's are sold out.

I'll be checking back regularly to see if they replenish their stock.....

What Are You Reading?

A girlfriend of mine lent me her copy of "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" yesterday and I'm already starting to get hooked.

It's quite the read with more than 800 pages, but I've heard nothing but good things. People have been saying that it's twisted and intense. I happen to love thrillers, mysteries and suspense filled novels - I'm gonna love this!

Just saw the subtitled trailer for the film on youtube today.

Ooh....I'm so excited to see it!

If you've read the book already, let me know your thoughts~

I Heard It Through The Facebook Vine:)

Calgary, be prepared for a lovely addition to Chinook Mall real soon. Think romantic, frills, soft, sipping tea, dainty, reading, serenity, glow.......(can you see the theme?)

Well I got the tip early this morning while searching through Facebook updates and I am happy to say that Anthropologie is coming to Calgary!

If you have never been to the site and love "things from days past", then you must pay Anthropologie a visit. It's one-stop shopping at it's best from clothing to jewelry/accessories and dining to bathroom decor, plus more!

I'd say that it's quite the triumph for Calgary - can't wait to make a visit~

Here are my fabulous finds from my online visit....

Happy B-Day To Me~

Well y'all, I have officially turned another year today and I feel as fierce as ever!

It's been a fab week-end with friends & fam and I have a feeling that big things are gonna happen for me this year~

I was listening to a little "Shad" today. He's in Calgary tonight for a show - another one that I've missed:(

Second-Hand Clothing As Art?

So y'all know that I organized a clothing swap in my city recently. I'm truly passionate about the concept of holding on to clothing that I wear and getting rid of what I no longer have use for.

So, a friend of mine forwarded this to me over the week-end and I think it's the coolest......

Meet Derick Melander, an artist who creates large structures of carefully folded & stacked second-hand clothing.

He pays a great deal of attention to how the clothing is layered. The process itself adds a layer to the finished piece.

Here's a little tidbit of information that I learned.....

3,615 pounds of textile waste is created by New Yorkers alone every 5 minutes - Crazy!!

I've Lacked The Motivation To Write Lately......

Over the past couple of days, I've lacked the motivation to write.....

I'm just stuck in a "rut" right now where I'm bored with absolutely everything.

I've gotta get my ''groove" back and fast lol. I think that my "laxidazy" (that's a new word of mine), has to do with the fact that I'm missing home - Toronto that is....

And seeing this video the other day, didn't help.
