As a blogger there’s a few things you need to have especially around fashion week, camera, phone charger, biz cards, stamina, and a good attitude.

Sunday Magazine Selection: Wired, W, HouseBeautiful 

The sun is shining, and I’m gonna head outside, make the most of the day. Spent the morning finishing up House of Cards Season 3 and reading magazines. I won’t share any spoilers but man I really love that show. Clair Underwood (played by Robin Wright) is amazing. I remember doing¬†a magazine review a few years ago (2011) and putting a little cut out of my face on the magazine, funny. Finished S1 of Transparent on Shomi today. Good show. The music is really great. I’ve added NextIssue¬†added to my weekend relaxation routine since starting the trial last month. I love reading magazines but buying a whole stack is 1) heavy and 2) expensive.¬†This morning I ¬†read Wired, W Magazine, and HouseBeautiful. I’ve been given a code from NextIssue that allows you to get free 60-day trial of the app too. Download¬†NextIssue – Easy as 1,2,3! Click here ->¬†bit.ly/1EaIH3L Enter…

365 Chances to Create the Life You’ve Imagined

So, yesterday I wasn’t feeling so hot and I was hoping I¬†was just tired from a busy weekend but today I am worse. My throat is sore and my whole body aches. I’m trying to look on the bright side, it’s forcing me to sit on the couch and spend some time with my computer and there’s a chance I might drop a few lbs before the New Year. I’m drinking heaps of water, have chicken soup, and Sean is home sick too. Our house is quarantine. I don’t get sick very often¬†but I’ve blogged about it a few times: Entrpreneneurs Don’t Call in Sick, They Work Down with the sickness: How to do a Thyme Bath Sick, Mucus, Cold, Gross Looking back, I usually only get sick in winter. Apparently ‘it’s going around’, from my limited interaction with other humans the last 24 hours. After a really busy year…

Events | Streamers + Smiles: Creative Mornings w/ Tiffany Pratt

Just over¬†a¬†week ago I attended my first Creative Mornings event in Toronto. It was one of the first chilly mornings and trench coat weather. Arrived to have my photo taken by a friendly blog babe instantly made friends with another girl outside too. The day was off to a great start! The theme for September was COLOR and they cold not have picked a better person to light up the room. There was a pink card on each of our seats¬†with Tiffany’s face and contact info, along with a beaded wooden rainbow mandala bracelet, which had been made¬†by volunteers with Tiffany earlier in the week.¬†There were streamers on the door, the floor, hanging from the ceiling. It was a colour explosion! If you check¬†@thetiffanypratt on Instagram you day will be brighter the second¬†her profile pops up.

It may be raining outside but there’s sunshine in here.

It’s been a bit gloomy up here the last 24 hours but I don’t really mind it. Hopefully we get some sunshine tomorrow. Jenie is coming to visit w/ her BF today and I can’t wait! Made a time lapse of the rain storm yesterday. It was magical with the sun shining through most the time. Posted the 15 second on Instagram¬†here. Been doing some travelling w/ Kim Kardashian. I just can’t quit her! Looked at Sean’s old family albums and I knew he was cute but SERIOUSLY he is JUST SO DAMN CUTE. Look at this Jr. Blondetourage member! What a little legend. Hoping we can float in those big donuts I got on Amazon in the sunshine tomorrow. The rain is relaxing but also makes me sleepy. Reckon I’ll take a trip to town before I get cabin fever. Hope your day is lovely! Can’t wait till @jeniestewart…

Cat Footwear SS 2014 | New Shoes For Me and YOU!

Hi guys! Let me tell you about my new shoes and how you can win a pair! I recently got to check out the latest from Cat Footwear and was once again impressed with the stylish and dainty yet rugged styles. You’ll recognize the logo from¬†construction equipment and big machines but little did you know they also make really nice shoes. ¬†You might remember a while back when I got my first pair Cat of boots, Stella. The leather is¬†SO soft and I wore these¬†babies for an entire winter and walked all over the city, and to different cities on my travels. They are¬†very comfortable and as time goes¬†on, they age like a fine wine. From the Spring 2014 look-book¬†I picked the ‘Mahoney’ in Nile. They are a clean classic oxford with a nice solid sole and leather upper. I’ve got a pair with your name on them! Enter below¬†to…

TIFF Bell LightBox | The digiPlaySpace IS AWESOME!

Last night after dinner I stopped by the TIFF Bell Lightbox to visit the digiPlaySpace. For the first time,¬†TIFF invited grown-ups to¬†get down and geek¬†out. The After Hours¬†event inside digiPlaySpace introduced big kids like to me TIFF‚Äôs award-winning interactive exhibition. Thanks TIFF for the invite. Some of my fav parts below! The line was pretty long for PaperDude but I’ve tried it before. Look at this dork, haha! I love playing with Green Screen. I should have done Sesame Street instead of the Ellen Selfie. That’s so overdone! Big Bird was chillin’ by the DJ booth. Not sure what was going on here but the people on the floor had a camera on them that was projecting on the wall. Pong anyone? This was some kind of digital pong/fooseball thing. Looked like fun! At the digiPlaySpace, kids (big or small!) can play with emerging creative media technologies and share innovative…

I Love to Visualize the Data

What’s more fun to do on Sunday morning than make breakfast, watch movies, and create infographics about your data? I DON’T KNOW. Ok, I do know but I do love the way data looks when it’s visualized. This morning I’ve been scoping about a few free tools to see what my data says about me. For a great list of infographic tools see this list on hongkiat.com I found via Paisano. I’m off to the Art Gallery to hang out with Frida and Diego. Will say hi to Banksy and Andy for you! Have an awesome day! ūüôā create infographics with visual.ly
