The Problem With People Saying There is a Problem with Girlboss Feminism

I just finished binge-watching the 13-episode-long Netflix series, Girlboss, which claims to loosely follow the ups and downs of Nasty Gal’s entrepreneur Sophia Amoruso on her journey into the business of thrifting and online shopping. I loved it for a number of reasons, many of which are attributed to Britt Robertson’s spunky, take-no-bullshit attitude and the… Read more »

International Women’s Day

Today is #InternationalWomensDay, and if you’re fortunate enough to be scrolling through social media because you have access to a smartphone, or a tablet, or a computer, or a public library’s computer, or a laptop, or an iPad, or whatever device it is that has access to 3G or Wifi, then there is absolutely no… Read more »

The Patriarchy Wears Pink: Taking on the Hidden Tax

Who doesn’t love some personal pampering? From deodorant to shampoo and scented soaps, hygiene is an important daily ritual for many men and women; so, why should the latter be paying a reported 43% more for basic personal care items? Montrealer Aviva Maxwell pledges to answer this absurd question. The “pink tax”, a phenomenon that has been documented across… Read more »

Nasty Woman

If fashion is about making a statement, then let me make mine: No, I’m not American, but I am a human being. Today marks the day where we all have to come together, and protect each other from those who will continue to wield the normalization of hate speech as exercises in freedom of speech…. Read more »

A lil bokeh

One of my favourite things about living in the heart of Montreal is that this city is overflowing with artists: painters, style lovers, fashion creators, avid readers, creative writers, and, (one of my favourites), talented photographers. I’ve been working with Terrie for over a year now, meeting up every once in a while at some… Read more »

Salted Caramel

October is finally here! Among the usual oversize-sweatered hands carrying PSLs and scrolling through caramel-coloured Pinterest boards, there is that all too familiar dressing woe; how does one prepare for morning’s Arctic temperatures, but also survive the afternoon’s blazing heat? Layering is definitely key, but I won’t lie to you; you’ll have to brave the brief morning chill in order… Read more »

A Lil Bit of Both; Bondi Beach and Wilson’s Prom

G’day from the other siiiiide; I’m back up from down under and fighting jet lag like a champ by browsing the billions – only a slight exaggeration – of photos from my trip to the land of Oz. Didn’t see any emerald cities or yellow brick roads, but instead tons of sandy beaches, cuddly marsupials and ridiculously… Read more »

Leather and Layers

Montreal, is that you all nice and hot?? Not sure how much longer I can sport leather legs in this warming weather, but I’m not complaining about the balmy temperatures this week! When the weather is as fickle as your study habits (it’s not just me, right guys??), layering up and down is the way… Read more »

A Letter To My First Love,

To Brussels, I won’t even waste my words on the hateful people that have tried to take on the magical, eclectic little corner of the world that you are, because their mission to destroy everything that embodies beauty, love and light is in vain. Some are so entangled in their own darkness that they try to… Read more »
