I’m walking The Walk!

Training hard!

Now to talk the Talk:

Friends.

I am participating in Montreal’s annual AIDS walk Ca Marche on Sunday, September 19th!

All the money that I raise will go toward supporting the excellent youth organization I work for called Head & Hands and the seriously rad sex-ed program we run called The Sense Project, an initiative that raises awareness and offers inclusive, non-judgmental sex education in Montreal classrooms.

Sponsor me by clicking here! Whether it is $5, $10, $20, $50 etc., every contribution counts! Thanks in advance for your support!!

Wanna join our team? Do it! We are keeping up the tradition of turning this walk a thon into a dance a thon…..so get ready to show off your dance moves as we shimmy, twirl, shake our way through the streets of Montreal.

Now for a video from last year’s walk…

Thanks so much!

Today is all about the strength and independent spirit of Lauryn Hill!

Lauryn Hill is back!

“I don’t need anybody to market or promote me. If people don’t want to hear this music, then it’s not for them. You cannot please everybody.” – Lauryn Hill

Less sun, more shade

Sears The Shoe Place tied fringe leather loafer

As the days get shorter, I’m falling out of love with my summer dresses, sandals, my white blouses and the like. I’m growing more interested in boyish separates, tailored garments and earth and rust tones…I know- nothing ground breaking for fall! I just can’t wait to get back into my brown tweed blazer and black leather jacket, to slip into my newly purchased loafers (from Etsy & pictured above) that will replace my old, ragged moccasins which I don’t feel so good about anymore- too culture-appropriating for me. I’ll wear cool-weather dresses like my bow-necked secretary style frocks as well as my dark blue jeans. I may do a bit of thrifting to hunt around for more button-up boy shirts and cardigans to pair with them. For dressiness, I’d like to collect a bit of velvet, but nothing black or crushed. Lastly, I can’t wait to check out what Lalouka cooks up in the next month or so! Yessss!
