Snowfall

Here is another shot of me taken by Yannick at the Montreal Lights Festival! I thought that it would be appreciated amongst some photography enthusiasts. The beautiful bokeh was achieved with strong spotlights that were lighting up a sign above. They served as a powerful backlight for the particles of snow falling around me. The erratic movements of the snow due to the wind contributed to this cool effect!

Beam Me Up

Good morning! This photo got a ton of hype from my circle of friends, so I thought you’d enjoy it too. I was recently at the Montreal Lights Festival with my good friend Yannick and he snapped this one of me, amongst some other cool shots. The colors here are amazing!

If you’re in town and have attended the Montreal Lights Festival with your camera, I’d love to see some of your own photos.

WordPress is being a bitch as usual so you can view the full version here.

Also, the Hip and Bone Snapback Contest is now over and we will be announcing the winner shortly. Stay tuned for that.

New Dress, New Place

This summer has been anything but relaxing – 40-hour work weeks, summer class, moving, friends and this blog have been taking up all of my time.  Luckily, I’m a city girl and I can’t stand those days when there is absolutely nothing to do!  Today I decided to share an outfit as well as some photos of my new apartment in Mile End of Montreal.  There’s still quite a bit of design work left to do on the place, but I can’t seem to commit to a certain look (ugh WHY are girls so complicated?). An outfit is no big deal – you can dress however you feel like dressing, depending on what you’re feeling that day. I’m going to have to dish out some cash on artwork that I’m willing to keep up for at least a year.  I fear that my taste will change on me, as it always does.

Here is just a small collection of my boyfriend’s books.  He’s a total Star Wars geek but…

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’m the fashion geek.  I love reading about fashion history and learning where the influence all began.  I can’t say that I’m proud to have bought the magazines, however.  In a way, fashion magazines just make you feel…unfashionable.  I’m sure I’m not the only so-called fashionista that feels insufficient when she sees all these designer clothes at impossible prices.  It’s always about pushing the envelope and coming up with the most fresh and flattering ensembles ever.  It’s always about advertising a dream.  Interior design is even more of a dream.  I once made a blog post where I pretended I owned 5 different houses around the world, and I think I was going psycho that day.  Despite my knowledge of this, I strive on! Maybe I’ll snap out of it one day…but for now it’s too much fun.
