What a great weekend! We had heaps of rain but I *actually* sat down and got a lot done. Sean and I also did The Big Clean of 2017! This week my friend Misty and her daughter + sister are coming up to the cottage with Emily and myself. It’s going to be super fun. relaxing, visiting and GIRLY. I’m really looking forward to it! Misty is from Australia (but lies here) and her sis visiting from the motherland. Shrimp on the barbie! Haha.
IN OTHER NEWS…
Sean won TWO MMVAs last night at the show! We were deep into the big clean when I checked Twitter to see they won the first one and seconds later saw a second tweet.
A Little MMVA history…
Over the last 10 years, my relationship with the MMVAs has gone through some major changes.
Back in 2007-2008, going to an MMVA party was the coolest thing and being on a list or getting a wristband was the ultimate.
FF to 2009 when I worked at MUCH. I was the Social Media Manager for the 2010 show (imdb) and worked tirelessly for months, then ran social behind the scenes during show night.
In 2012, Sean was nominated for Down With Webster video and I came out to celebrate his win after the show. It was in the early stages of our relationship and I remember thinking he was SO COOL. (Still is!)
In 2015, he was nominated again for Zed’s Dead and did the red carpet before the show. I really wanted to go but he didn’t have plus 1. He went with his partner on the project (Grandson & Son) and he sent me this photo! We’d stopped at Yorkdale on the way home from the cottage. He got into his clothes as fast as he could. I made sure he was looking great and sent him out the door. Then they WON! I think I went to meet them and celebrate that night too. Sean won another time for a Sam Roberts video since then. One year I also hosted a VIP room in an MMVA lounge where celebs came though.
Yesterday around the middle of the day, Sean had to decide if he was going to the show or not. Should we go and party? He decided no! It was kinda great. The sun came out at the cottage and we got heaps of work done.
In all my years of knowing about the MMVAs never did I think I would be in a relationship with an MMVA winner and decide to not even go to the show. We’reI old now lol. (ok, maybe next year!) Well, it was a great night up at the cottage and feeling super well rested and alive today.
Also to note that LORDE won Best International Artist and Archie from Riverdale (KJ Apa, a Kiwi!) was there so it was a big night for New Zealand.
CONGRATS ON THE WIN FAM!
In celebration of converse.ca (Welcome to 🇨🇦 !) they sent an awesome package. The box is an old computer with a lenticular screen, and it’s full of disks. A couple disks have codes for FREE SHOES and I’m sharing then w you. YAY! I gave a pair to Matt @ 1188 to test shipping. Ordered Friday shipped Monday, on his feet Tuesday in TO from Montreal.
Every summer I get a new pair of white Converse because after wearing them all summer with no socks, trust me, they’re
worn out done. I’d like a pair of white leather hightops but I also love the little white Dainty. Really feeling the Nike X Flyknit but they only come in mens sizes and my feet are too small. 😩
The new Converse II soles are more comfortable. They’re a great summer staple, love them with dresses or jeans, shorts, and rompers. They’re my fav. I have a framed photo of my Andy Warhol converse in my room and another couple pairs tucked away in under bed storage for safe keeping; an Andy Warhol pair and classic Chuck Taylor high tops with my signature on the tongue.
HOW TO WIN? LEAVE A COMMENT! 👇🏽
Scroll over to converse.ca, find your fav shoes, and say hi in the comments w/ a link to your fav pair.
I’ll pick two people and shoes will be delivered to you anywhere in Canada.
Extra points for good manners, jokes, or kind words. GOOD LUCK! 😊
- oh ya FYI, sorry USA Canada only!
Wednesday this week I took Sean to a track with Ford Canada to giver in the Ford RS and Mustang GT. I’ve driven on tracks with Ford a few times so know just how fun it is. It really helped me learn to handle a vehicle and be a more confident driver.
Ford invited me to bring a dad in my life in celebrations of Fathers Day. Sean works really hard and I knew this would make him feel great! I only went one lap and let him take a few extra just to see the smile on his face.
Our options to drive were Ford Mustang GT Convertible, Ford Mustang GT Fastback, and the Focus RS. The Focus RS is REALLY FAST. You’ll see Sean say it’s amazing in the video. 😜
One of my fav things of the day was doing a ‘hot lap’ with professional drivers Darryl Timers (Ford of Canada’s Performance Driver since 2013). Our vehicles were fully stocked with GoPro’s to catch our reactions. I also woer my Snapchat specs while driving so hit play below to see a first person view of me on the track.

THANK YOU Ford and the team from National PR for a memorable experience with a fav dad in my life. We’ll continue to talk about this day for a loooooong time!
Don’t forget to say hi & love you to the dads/uncles/granddads/brothers and dad friends in your life this weekend!
Ford invited me on this trip but it wasn't a paid partnership.
LIFE TIP: If you're EVER given the opportunity to drive really fast on a track YOU TAKE IT.
Thanks Ford, Love ya!

Father’s Day is less than a week away! Do you have something for your dad, husband, grandpa, or other fav rad dad in your life? This year both Sean I got gifts for our dads on Kijiji. Read about our gifts and my love for the second-handeconomy on the Kijiji blog.
I wrote a post about finding a unique and affordable gift for dad on the the Kijiji blog.
Unfortunately on Saturday night I got killed by mosquitoes and deer flies. My legs look like I’ve been on Survivor. I counted 80 bikes last night but I feel like more and more are swelling up. I’m so itchy! 😩
We went out for a nice rip on these guys today. Very fast! This weather is amazing. Last week was kind of intense so really enjoying every bit of our time here to recharge the batteries.
Hope you had a great weekend!
For the past few months, I’ve been having my hair done at Sassoon in Yorkville. My hair, although it’s super easy to get ready in the morning, IS VERY high maintenance. I have the colour done about every 4-6 weeks with a trim once, sometimes twice in the middle. I like the experience at Sassoon and each time I’ve had someone different do my hair. Variety is the spice! In April, I went wild for spring and cut it all off super short!
Taking Care of Your Hair w/ Treatments
Aside from the cut, I really love how great my blonde looks a couple weeks after I get it done. Blonde can be tricky and if you don’t take care of it properly, it’ll go yellow and brassy. The team at Sassoon has been loading my hair up with treatments to make the colour stay and keep it strong.
Treatments Sassoon has been using in my hair:
Colour: Long Lasting Colour Radiance
Coloured hair needs special care to ensure it retains its vibrancy and shine. The colour treatment conditions and protects hair without build-up, helping to maintain long-lasting color radiance and intensity.
Moisturizing: Dry or Undernourished Hair
Sun exposure and pollution strip your hair of essential natural oils, leaving hair brittle and dehydrated. Hair will be immediately revitalized with the intensive moisturizing treatment, providing exceptional conditioning and restoring hair to its natural brilliant shine.
I’m almost due for a trim before my next root touch-up. I love having short blonde hair but I think I’ll try one of the soft spring pastel colours like pink, violet, or peach. Will be so nice for this time of year!
For my next full appointment, I’d like to grow it out a bit and try this new Sassoon cut from the SS17 collection. It’s a unique look but I think I can pull it off! I love the androgynous style. What a babe!
Stay tuned for a whole new look!
I'm partnered with Sassoon Toronto + they make sure my hair is looking super fabulous in exchange for my honest and true opinion. You heard it here first guys! Thank you Sassoon! To book an appointment at Sassoon Toronto call (416-920-1333 or pop by the website here for location info.
