I have to have a post where i rant a bit!  I am so fed up with men!  Where have all the men in the world gone!  I am trying not to be syndical but I am loosing faith in my generations men or the lack there of.  There is some kind element in these 'men' that is missing and it is the charm aspect! Where is the charm, the wooing, the take you by surprise! Call me old fashioned but where are the love stories!  I've seen the movies and I get it, hollywood has dabbed a bit in the dream world, but where is that spark, that gust of wind that really encompasses a person and makes us believe!  Men suck at this point! I am totally just ranting and I know there are some really wonderful men out there, but right here right now I'm totally at a lose.  Do i have to lower my expectations gentlemen?   My friend told me this brilliant story of how her and her boyfriend met and what there first date was like.  I was in owe and at ease because this was a clue that indeed there are decent dudes out there, but where!  It went along the lines of boy meets girl, boy asks girl out. Boy and girl go on bike ride to burriot place. boy and girl sit on the top of a building looking out over the harbour gaing at the stars drinking great red wine!  End of story!   I have hope still! Show me a sign someone!!!!

oh so pretty in pink!

Delicates are so uplifting!  If you don't own a pair of these panties or that Bra go get it!  You are worth it! Go out and purchase a set of intimates that embrace your curves, make you feel beautiful and help you realize you are a woman!  There is an instant satisfaction, a sense of mystery when you wear some stellar  under garments.  Maybe you have someone special who you want to show them off to or maybe you get to walk around all day saying to yourself "I am a hot tamale"! Work it and love what mother nature gave you! 
There is something nostalgic and romantic to a black and white photograph.   The contrasting lines, the shadows and silhouttes it's all very alluring.  Being a fan of portrait photography here are a couple snapshots I just love!  Enjoy and why not switch your film to b+w try a new perspective!

So great!

Im extremely in the Christmas mood.  I have unpacked the ornaments, lit the christmas candle and already dived into a box of ginger snaps!  It's game time!  I love being creative around this time of year, making my christmas cards, creating some kind of snow flake thing to hang from the windows.  I loved this image of the twinkle lights and paper doilies. tis the season!

I love this twisted hair look!

I dream of having ginger hair like hers!  I love the swept curl!  :)
ps. totally snagged from the sartoralist
I found this 'date night' look on Cup of Joe!  Thats such a cute look totally great for a dinner and movie or bike adventure around Brooklyn, only to end up of course at Frankies Spuntino's for amazing wine and food!  Done, what time you gonna pick me up?

I've been watching MadMen and yesterday I saw the episode of when J.F.K was killed!  I thought i would post this because i think it really captures that period in time.  Look at how Jackie is sitting and check out his socks!  Its just a wonderful photograph that captured there essence!

Deeply in love with this fall look!  SOS call i must shop at ASOS

Sing it loud, sing it proud! Check out these nifty banners!

What a great cozy cottage!  I really love the idea of birth beds.  It gives the home an instant nautical feel. A feeling of being in a borough all nestled in and tucked away! Its so charming!

Morning sunshine!  This picture was taken by a friend back home in Vancouver a couple of days ago!  Something that has always defined this amazing place i call home is the vast body of water you look out on and the mountainous terrain painted across the horizon! Its such a stunning cityscape! 

YES! Finally Alexa Chungs collection for Madewell is here (they ship to canada, right?)! Get ready kids, its back to school time and the oxford shoes are tappin!  Im totally into the Iris blouse and Tennessee velvet dress! Danger danger!

Buttes back!  My beloved bike and i are reunited! After a little disassembly and vanishing i have put her back together she is looking better then ever! Fresh and fly its wonderful to be back riding around ! Take your bike for a spin, its well deserved!

Here is the beginning of a new month: September.  I adore this time of year because everything is in changing mode.  From the leaves on the trees, to the places we live and work... to what we start craving.  I for one am in a moving mindset.  In about a month i will be opening my next chapter and venturing to Europe.  After living in Montreal for some time i feel the need to naviage a new scene, adventure a foreign places... test out my new self.  Im excited for this but coming to the end of something is always sad.  I have grown a life here and met people.  Its all somewhat comfortable now.  I know the avenues and borrows, the cool cafes, the quite spots, the cheap places to buy produce... where to get film developed.  I have my life here... but it is not my home.  So onwards and upwards.  I thought of myself as a run away for a bit... like the kids in the kids film Peter Pan but then i can to realize im more of an adventurer.. i choose to live and laugh and love and play.  This is not running away this is the exploration, the fun part.  To the moon & back!

I need a trench coat!

September is here!
