(Love Is Like A) Heatwave

Thursday, July 28, 2011


In the winter I was on a mission to find Revlons new shade Orange Flip but it hasn't come to Canada yet. On my last trip home, I found it within seconds on a trip to the States with my dad and I couldn't be happier. It's texture is not as good as NARS Heat Wave (my standby lipstick and true make up love forever) but the color is pretty damn close. And at $6.99 for a tube for Revlon, I'll probably never purchase NARS heat wave again.


Courage My Love, Will Make Me Bolder

Vintage Levis, Top and Bow Hair Pin: Salvation Army in Buffalo NY. Shoes: Zara, thrifted Lipstick: Revlon, Orange Flip

I've been living in these Levis for the past week and they are the first pair of jeans I've ever "worked in". They started out a bit snug but I wore them anyways through this weeks wonderful adventures - a heat wave, riding on a motorcycle, eating and drinking in the park and dancing through the largest downpour of my life. This top, well, I love it to bits but I haven't worn it out of the house yet - the teeny little number!

I found a quote this week on things about love that instantly guided me to embrace the kind of summer I want to have - one where I can be alone but not lonely. Where I can be social without basing my happiness, identity and self worth on the relationships around me...its something i've done all my life. And most important, I want to follow my heart and do what I want to do.



Montreal's Finest: The Wheel Club

Wednesday, July 20, 2011








I've been to the Wheel Club three times now and each time I go, I want to hug the place and it's people for existing. It's a country club that opens it's doors every Monday for Hillbilly Night. I love the line dancing, the music, the beer in iced buckets, the $2 chip bowls and the fact that I am enjoying these things alongside my friends, and people twice, and three times my age. This Monday was special because Shauna went on stage to sing and I am so proud of her for going up!!

This past Monday was also interesting because I'm trying to talk to people more. To drop the anxiety around approaching people and simply say "Hi, how's your night going?" So basic but I never to do it! I used to wait for a really obvious opening line, to be introduced, for something interesting to say but I'm beginning to realize that young and old, people just want to be talked to and listened to and there is something so human about making even the simplest and briefest of connections.


Happy Sad Movies and Yuli

Admiring Emilias autoharp skills
WIne legs and lips
My convincing and well captured cartwheel

Yuli Sato took these pictures while we were all sitting in the park drinking wine. I’ve admired her photos from afar for the past year (you should check them out) and I adore these candid shots she captured! I took them all from her blog!! I will be creating my own content soon I promise!

I watched the most incredible film, “The Diving Bell and the Butterfly” about Jean Dominique Bauby, the French editor of Elle, who had a rare stroke which paralyzed him almost totally except for the ability to blink with his right eye. Which is what he used to communicate - and write a memoir, letter by letter.

Here are some stills
