Shortly after the release of his new single Starboy, Toronto's very own, The Weeknd unveils the follow up track 'False Alarm'. I've never heard anything like this from The Weeknd so it's exciting to hear a new and strategically random direction!! Can't wait for what comes next!! [Listen Below]
I don't know what it is about this collection but there is something that just makes me say DOWNTOWN COOL SUPER HERO UBAN GIRL CHIC!?!?!? AM I right or am I just have another wave of delusional thoughts that come and go from the excitement I get every time a Versace collection comes to the runway? This season Versace presented a cool collection featuring a svelte and sleek aesthetic infused with hints of MOD style vibes.. The collection was also accompanied by powerful contrasting colours and luxe textures, all blending perfectly to make this seasons collezione!
Today Balmain showed their Spring/Summer 2017 runway show inspired by the unique strength of those strong women that designer, Olivier Rousting calls his Balmain army. Women that never shy away from showing their softer side, sure in the knowledge that there’s no longer any need to shout. For me the collection was quite a surprise, following all the Met Gala moments that ensued in New York I was sure that Olivier would be putting heavy, intense, high embellished looks down the runway for this collection but to my surprise he did the complete opposite and showcased a softer, lighter and flowier runway show which theoretically makes sense for a Spring/Summer collection! AS MUCH as you know I am obsessed with my pearls, crystals & etc. it is indeed refreshing to see a new style come into the ethos of Balmain.

This Vegas trip has been so amazing thus far, I can't believe we've already been here for three days. It feels although it's been a week! If you have been following me on social media you know that I am on this trip with two of my favourite blogger friends courtesy of Expedia!!! We have been doing such fun and exciting things here like this... We drove out into the desert, without any direction and when we felt we found the right place, we just hopped out of the car and dove right into it... Thus, creating, these magical warm, moody, vintage and dusty feeling moments that I never thought I would capture in a million years!!!! What a time!.. Stay tuned for more!!

If you guys have been reading my blog and/or following me on social media for some time now then you know HOW MUCH of a little GEEK I am when it comes to technology! I have been and continue to be fortunate enough to work with some absolutely insanely amazing tech brands and when I get to see new products and technology it just gets me so excited!! As you can imagine.. When the wearable tech trend started becoming a 'thing' I was so excited because of how I have always loved combining fashion and technology.... A couple days ago I had the pleasure of attending Best Buy's second annual Wearable Tech Expo and fashion show where tech pro's and style mavens came together to showcase just how wearable, wearable tech really is. Stylist Afiya Francisco and wearable expert, Tom Emrich, did an exceptional job at pairing, sharing and showcasing just how simple and quite fluid it is to incorporate and integrate wearable technology into every day life & style choices... Learning that one of the most popular and most easily integrate-able pieces on the market right now is the smart watch made total sense. As time has progressed, they have been getting more and more stylish and personable.

It's been... Quite.. Quite a while since I've worn an all white outfit... Quite, quite some time.... And if you know me... You damn well sho' can tell that I very very veery rarely do this.. I think I've only ever done it once before.. So I am so glad I could do this again for one of my favourite collaborations... For the third instalment of my #ForeverFierce #STRUTyourFierce, Puma, campaign and collaboration we are showcasing the Gold/White colour way Puma Fierce sneaker. I wanted to do something that involved movement vs some capacity of serenity so we made a jaunt up to some foreign territory in the city that I have not yet visited, the very very beautiful Aga Khan museum...

Oh how ever do I carry on here.... And how much do I miss the nothingness accompanied by the sounds of the water splashing against the pool and the wind kissing the greenery creating that beautiful sound..... I literally just made a poem or a haiku or whatever about HOW much I miss The Hamptons!!!! I had such a wonderful stay and it was great to have some good quality family time even though I almost went insane come day 7 lol!! Regardless, it's crazy how calm, peaceful and serene everything is when in The Hamptons.. Definitely can not wait to go back!!! Xx
