Last weekend I attended the Canadian Screen Awards as a guest of the First Weekend Club. It was my second year attending the ‘Canadian Oscars’ after last year winning the award for Voice Pioneer at CSA’s Social Awards. The awards were hosted by Howie Mandel and held at the Sony Centre on Front Street.
I absolutely love attending these kinds of Canadian events. Since my first job working in TV almost 10 years ago, and being on tv/in a couple documentaries since, I’ve grown to know a lot of people in the industry. I love seeing old friends and colleagues take the stage and supporting creative work by amazing Canadians.
This great dress was rented from Studio Fitzroy, my go-to!
One highlight of the show for me was when Strombo announced an award in the name of Canadian filmmaker and friend Rob Stewart (Sharkwater) who recently passed away. Starting in 2018, the award for Best Science or Nature Documentary Program or Series will be in Rob Stewart’s name.
The pre-show was hosted by Emma Hunter (The Beaverton) who was super funny. My fav line of hers was when she was announcing the nominees for ‘Live Action Short Drama’ and she said ‘story of my life’. I was like ME TOO GIRL, ME TOO. Haha.
I made notes in my phone during the show of Canadian films to add to my watch list including Weirdos, Born to be Blue, and Two Lovers And A Bear.
Thanks you kindly First Weekend Club for inviting me to be your guest. I hope to attend more Canadian Films things with you this year!
This is quick personal note to tell you the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show on this weekend. I love vintage clothes and have been collecting them my whole life. I swear one day I will have a closet big enough to house them all!
The Toronto Vintage Clothing Show has heaps of clothes and accessories ranging in price and brands from streetwear to top designers. Keep an eye out for Chanel!
The other day we drove past the BITE Lip Lab on Queen, it was snowing, and there was this gorgeous man standing in the window. I stared at him and then I was like ‘omg I know him, that’s Christopher!’. Hadn’t seen him in forever, sent him a FB, then he invited me in to make a custom lipstick.

The Lip Lab is on Queen just West of Bathurst.
Heaps of colours and I love how they’re displayed on the wall.
You can add up to two flavours to your lipstick. I did mint (only). I’m happy, it’s refreshing. I bet there’s some pretty great combos with these tho.
It didn’t take that long! I loved the first colours we mixed up and then Christopher got the ingredients, mixed it, chilled it on a cold plate, and put it in a tube. Then they engrave it for you at no extra charge.
Before I knew it, I had my very own unique lipstick, with my initials, and I waltzed off into the sunshine! ☀️
Now I want to make a bright red and peachy one for spring. 🍑
If you’re interested in stopping by, here’s your options. ▼ They said it’s super popular for mother daughter, bffs, sisters. I was there 3pm on a Friday and it wasn’t busy when I got there but there were more people by the time I was leaving. They also serve wine! 🍷
This was't sponsored they just hooked a girl up with a lipstick. I love it so much, science + beauty ftw!
