2: You may think we’re joking, but this isn’t the first time Bianca and I met up on a whim only to find out we were unintentionally cross-coordinating…(P.S. my hat even matched the colour of her socks!!)
3: Bianca wearing her new neck weight from Emily Woudenberg. Seeing as I have the black version, we’re officially (lol jk) #twinsies!
4: We snapped some fun polaroids and ate some fun candy hearts with Liz and Liz at the Sherway Gardens Topshop store opening on November 16.
5: With the aforementioned ladygirls ~~goofing~~ off in our Topshop party dresses.
6: Bianca’s new Sam Edelman shoes via Capezio Shoes.
7: We got these #Mickeybyf21 goodz from our pals at ASC PR. The arrival of the collection coincided with my parents’ impromtu trip to Disney – so it was kind of a bittersweet reminder that while they were enjoying the sun and lifesized cartoons, I was freezing my butt off in Toronto. But regardless, how could I complain about garb emblazoned with everyone’s favourite cartoon mouse?!?
8: I shot with Cris from Degrassi and MTV FORA a couple of weeks ago, and of course decided to take advantage of da SUPER CUTE set design for my own photo op :3
9: We also released our (much anticipated) F/W ’13 collection featuring our blood, sweat and tears and also Julia Monson. Shop it here.
10: !!selfies!! fo’ daiz.
11: As we mentioned before, we’ll be working with Topshop going into 2014 – and here’s the first look at one of our V EXCITING PROJECTS. Winter lookbook coming sooooon.
12: Our second home for the month – Topshop Personal Shopping on Queen St. with our new BFF Jess.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve always managed to contract some kind of flu around my birthday – rendering me bedridden and angsty on my *big day*. Fortunately, /someone/ was on my side this year, and I managed to ~experience~ my impromptu Miley Cyrus birthday party in A+ condition! There were snacks and food and a screening of The Last Song, but mostly there were friends and good times and lots of funny pictures to prove all of the above.
With that said, it’s understandable that the rest of the month didn’t compare to the !!best!! birthday party ever; but Bianca and I DID manage to embark on some exciting new projects – namely with Topshop Canada.
Though gearing up for the winter break is always pretty exciting (because HOLIDAYS, DUH), but it also means we’re busier/crabbier than ever. Fortunately, we have ~each other~ and lots of new clothes to frolic around in sleep-deprived states. So although November wasn’t particularly exciting, we’re happy to say that December will probably be a lot more fruitful.
On a side note: For any of you Toronto ladies who have interrogated me about my hair, I’m pleased to introduce you to/remind you about Civello Salon! The lovely Anna reached out to Bianca and I via Twitter back in September to invite us down to the Rosedale location; and although life has been hectic, I managed to pay them a trip earlier this month.
Despite the searing pain (that comes hand-in-hand with any bleaching endeavour), Anna’s team made sure I was comfortably surrounded by Aveda’s “comforting” tea and lots of organic juices. I walked in with less-than-flattering black roots and warm tones (…because I ran out of purple shampoo), and walked out with a fresh haircut and completely silvery hair!
If you’re thinking about going blonde (or just looking for a new stylist), I would definitely suggest you set up a consultation appointment at one of Civello’s 4 salons. As a warning, going blonde is a rather large commitment and in order to maintain my current colour, I’ll have to return to the salon every couple of months. If you have any questions about bleaching your hair, feel free to comment below and I’ll try not to scare you with the long and gruelling process.
Once again, thanks to Anna and Civello Rosedale for the awesome experience and the awesome hair
