#manimondays

Happy Mani Monday one and all. When we were embarking on this week’s #manimonday adventure our hand model couldn’t decide between her top two choices. It’s a dilemma a girl should never have to deal with, we do live in a nail art loving world after all. Naturally we found a way to use both…

what’s the buzz?

  Skype’s been connecting people around the globe with patchy sentences, awkward pauses and sometimes  pixelated faces since 2003. This week the video chat service, along with parent company Microsoft, unveiled new technology that translates conversations in real time, ish. A slight lag time is to be expected. Mark our words, bad Skype translations are…

 Hideaways ‘Lets getaway!’ A statement we all find ourselves clinging onto when a week is unfolding chaotically or in crisis. It’s in times like these where I find myself leaning on the visually healing properties of images of magical ‘escapes.’ Sleeping in a treehouse, disappearing into a hidden nook within your home, sleeping with the fishes or…

#Fatties

#Fatties, the sun is shining, the World Cup is coming and we’re hungry (and thirsty). Torontonians have become major patio mongers over the years, likely because the sunny warmth of Summer is so fleeting and Winter is so damn punishing. (Thanks for that, polar vortex. Asshole.) For your lounging-on-a-patio-like-a-slightly-sweaty-yet-fancy-sloth pleasure, here are some of our favourite spots…

Crowns   I am obsessed with images of people wearing crowns.   Both majestic and camp, I can not look away. For me it stems back to the scene from Julian Schnabel’s  ‘Basquiat.’   While gazing at Picasso’s ‘Guernica” in the company of his beloved mother, his mom sees a drawn crown above his head.…
