There is nothing like coming back to my hometown. If any of you are wondering where I am from - here goes .... Ajax Ontario, a suburban town just 40 minutes east of Toronto!  This was a very short and sweet trip to celebrate my sisters high school graduation! Can't believe how fast she has grown up!

On to the outfit!....My sister and I went back to her highschool today to shoot the look since it was a perfect fit for this cute sporty summer get up, if you ask me she is quite the photographer!

What a great idea for a bracelet! you can customize the coordinates of anywhere in the world thats special to you ( my coordinates are Los Angles ) in any metal option you like! There is a wide range of styles to choose from- the bracelet can be engraved on the front and back you can even include your birthstone on it as well!

Adventures in Venice

posted on: Tuesday, June 17, 2014

This is a little bit of a late post, but happy to finally reveal 3 favorite beach looks for Summer 2014! There was no other perfect place to shoot other than Venice, CA - I think we nailed it spot on with an amazing collaboration from my good friend Justine Cucenco GYPSUM STYLE , the oh so talented eye behind the camera SAMUEL LIPPKE and myself of course! Basing ourselves in the heart of Muscle Beach, Samuel was so creative in picking the perfect and most interesting spots to shoot , from the beach to the alley ways, ice creams on the bleachers, down the boardwalk and even throwing me in the middle of a skate park on roller skates - this day was nothing but FUN! Hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did shooting!

Caviar Hair Discovery

posted on: Tuesday, June 10, 2014

Believe it or not I do not use very many products in my hair, and am never consistent with up keep - I color about 2 times a year - wash 3 times a week to let natural oils sit - blowdry 3 times a week and curling/straightening iron 2 x a week. This was an impulse purchase since I have been neglecting my my poor hair for quite some time now. Coming into summer I decided to put some highlights in my hair - so a deep treatment is a must before doing some damage tomorrow!

ALTERA CAVIAR MOISTURE MASK -Anit Aging for the Hair? who would have thought! This is  a highly recommended deep treatment to use about 1x a week for about 10 minutes before washing your hair - it will protect from any UV and environmental damage.
 Believe it or not I applied a small amount throughout my hair just before going to a Hot Yoga class! I promise with the Caviar extract and Vitamin C ingredients this mask will leave your hair shiny, silky and smooth!

ALTERA CAVIAR ANTI AGING CREAM is best used after towel dried hair for best results use after post styling!
