There are not enough words that I can type in this blog entry nor pictures I could post up that could justify how fantastic my recent trip to San Francisco was. From wine tasting in Sonoma to fine dining in Mill Valley, brunches in South Park and shopping sprees in Union Square to twerkin' the dance floor at the clubs with my boy Shafiyi and the ultra fabulous Anna T. of i need a social life blogSan Francisco was amazing.

Also, this trip was a realization of how fortunate I am to have a current particular person in my life that loves me enough to stick around despite knowing how psychotic and demanding I may be—Finally... Someone who adores me and all of my 58,625 flaws. Thank you my Anh. xo

So. . .what sort of delightful finds did I get in San Fran you may ask? Let's just say it's something leather, black, wearable, expensive, hooded, begins with the letter M and ends with the word Jacobs. Can you guess what it may be?

I honestly should be packing for my weeklong trip away out of town right now, but I just can't pull myself away from the computer and

This online boutique is THE boutique of all fashion and its lovers. It has a tremendously stunning selection of mens designer jackets to basic staple pieces that everyone should have in their closet to even something more luxuriously avant-garde like Rick Owens boots, which I personally would trade one of my internal organs to be able to own a pair of his leather beauties.

Anyways, I know I'm completely procrastinating on my packing for my vacation away, but after salivating over just about every leather piece I came across on, I'm at the point that I may just bring an empty suitcase on my trip, so I can just fill it up with an entire new wardrobe!

1) RAG & BONE varsity jacket w/ leather sleeves $690.00
2) SUNDAY 21 printed tee $90.00
3) LINDA FARROW by RAF SIMONS aviator sunglasses in black acetate $319.00
4) ACNE "Gym" sweatshirt $218.00
5) ALEXANDER WANG "Eugene" leather bag $981.00
6) KSUBI skinny jean in plum $170.00
7) RICK OWENS suede biker boot w/ front zip fastening $1,525.00
8) DIESEL BLACK GOLD leather belt w/ loop fastening $159.00

Bon Voyage!


Deal with it.

I am a bargain hunter—I know a good deal when I see one. . .well but then again, I consider 15% off on a coveted Chanel bag a complete steal. But when you have an offer of 50 bucks for $25, well you'll be stupid not to pick up an offer like that.

With that said and for someone with a shopping addiction like myself, I just HAD to pick up an offer like that on, where the deal was a $50 credit for $25 at American Apparel because a person can never have enough basics in their wardrobe.

So to all my fellow Canadians out there, sign up for and check out their daily deals to start saving hundreds of dollars on local activities & services, salon visits & restaurant meals, travel packages and more.

I visit everyday and to be quite frank, I can't wait for the day when there will be a deal on botox injections or liposuction because I'll be buying as many as I can for myself and to give away as Christmas presents.


Adding colour into darkness

There's nothing like a little retail therapy to fix a bad day right? Well I've been having a rough week—the sort of kind where you would like to crawl into a dark black hole with a giant bag of Cheetos and die. So aside from spoiling myself with a brand new tweed sport coat for the winter (which I TOTALLY did), I spent an evening being pampered at the salon.

Fresh cut, added colour, polished look and a revitalized attitude–This was exactly what I needed and colourist extraordinaire, Calvyn Cass definitely delivered it to me. Calvyn, took my "never-been-coloured-hair" virginity and after experiencing him doing so, I definitely will come back for more. Thank you Calvyn, I hope it was good for you as it was for me ;)
