This was shot in August. It's November. Holy time lapse batman! Anyways, the love I feel towards this photoshoot is akin to the love between a first time mother and her newborn. I essentially stayed up all night to nurture and grow it, which I did people. This was A LOT of work <3

My cousin is a rock star.

Every time my cousin, Pam, gets tagged on Facebook I squeal with delight, because I know I'm about to be taken to some bizarre alternate dimension, also known as the 90s.

It's essentially like following an indie flick actress on twitter or maybe going on tour with Kurt Cobain. It's all so rock n' roll and 'fuck the man'. I've always been way too fond of looking all proper and such to pull off any Sweet Child O' Mine look, but I definitely enjoy when Pam rocks my Fbook newsfeed. Rock on dudette.

Holt Renfrew December Displays

Joy to the world it's that time of the month again. Yay!

It's not December yet, but Holt Renfrew nor the rest of the retail world cares. I know some people get annoyed when holidays are forced upon them way in advance, but I welcome the marketing onslaught.

I know I'm a broke student. I've come to terms with the fact I cannot afford a holiday shopping spree. A Marc Jacobs party dress is so far removed from my reality that the whole idea of getting upset over not having one is ridiculous. Therefore, merchandising displays are my friends (even when torment ensues, they're still my friends).

These windows are a bit more traditional as opposed to Holt's more wacky and abstract displays, but I suppose we can tone things down a bit for Christmas, although in general-screw toning things down a bit. Leave that dirty work to Kate Middleton and Hilary Clinton.
