    The Great Exploration: @Muttonhead_Co AW13

    “our focus is ‘slow design’, a counter-movement to ‘fast fashion’.”- Muttonhead Muttonhead recently revealed their A/W13 collection and I’m loving it. After taking a look at it, I’m all kinds of mad all over again for missing their pop-up shops/sales last year ( I was out of town. It won’t happen again) For those who are unfamiliar with Muttonhead, it’s a unisex, sportswear line ethically manufactured right here in Toronto, and it’s dope! I’m normally pretty colourful and girly when I dress, but I have my days where I just wanna keep it simple and chill in something comfy, but still look good, and if it’s made in Canada, even…

    Goose Down-Filled Dog Coat from @JoyPetsProducts

    Sky Blue Silver Grey Goose Down Coat from Joy Pet Products We are on the last legs of summer right now and fall means one thing for dog owner – Time to shop for coats! We recently tried a brand new coat from our friends at Joy Pet Products. You know it is filled with real down because it smells like down pillows and down duvets! The down that Joy Pets Products used is cleaned between 10 – 15 times and the standard is 2 – 5 times because of dog’s sensitivity to smell. The Joy Pet Products Goose Down Filled Dog Coat has a removable poly fill hood and…

    Venus Upon Havana

    I mentioned last week, that I got to spend the day with Shah Emily, who is the founder and CEO of 3SHAHS; a custom jewellery line based here in Toronto. I had the opportunity to pick her brain, as well as get a preview of the new 3SHAHS Spring/Summer 2011 collection, which I loved by the way. Before the interview, I had to warn Shah that I an on an oohing/aahing-free diet while filming, as my videos pretty much o.d from them… it was difficult, and the occasional ooh and aah slipped out, but not biggie; the collection is wonderful, and has me craving warm summer weather! Enjoy! peace, love,…
