Photo Journal: Picking up Cupcakes in Camden

Went to pick up some cupcakes and couldn't stop staring at my jewellery. Featuring bracelet and ring from Parisi, rings from BCBG, Tiffany's, and independent Toronto boutiques. 


Geometry London, The Marlboro Bag

The guy I live with, my other half, he calls it my "Marlboro bag," because its that shade of brown that instantly triggers visions of the wild wild west and cowboys and is that suede looking leather like the saddles on the horses.

The Geometry London rectangle tote, is a simple enough tote that is structured and tough, which is what you need for every day wear. Its also big enough to hold  everything, I mean it too, one night I had to bring home my work laptop and if you have a work laptop you know that they are not what Apple Air dreams are made of, they are the complete opposite. The laptop and its huge battery cord fit among my lipstick red notebook that I take everywhere and everything else. 

Back in Toronto I lived a great distance away from the office so I was used to always bringing the necessities with me to work if I was going out after and its a habit I can't break, maybe its a good thing to always be this prepared. Here in London, I live a short distance from work yet I still pack everything in case of an emergency and this bag can handle it!

Make-up kit, brush, notebook, assortment of lip balms, lipsticks, travel sized dry shampoo bottle, hand cream, and a wallet are among some of the things my bag holds and an umbrella. There are two open pockets right at the top and one zip pocket on the opposite side for everything I need to be able to grab at a moments notice, my iPhone and my Oyster card mainly.

Geometry London has become a personal favourite of mine, the quality of the bags really have no comparison. Effortless chic is really the only way to describe the bags. 

The Stats:
100% Genuine Leather
Height - 14''
Width - 13.5''
Depth - 2.25''
Strap Drop - 6.5''

I grab it, I go, I know everything is in it, there is really nothing else I could ask for in a bag!

The SIREN Ring, it could save your life!

Lately, with the popularity of the catcall video and recent events in the news I've discovered that I want to use my platform for social change and to help women.

My hope is that my own views on female equality and strength shine through my words without blatantly stating it, however, I want to create a space that delivers not only product reviews but also very important information to women and for a brief moment I did not know how to do this. Luckily this morning I read about a ring. Initially the design of the ring is what caught my attention but that isn't why I'm writing about it. This ring could save your life. Big statement I know but I'm serious.

Female protection is a necessity in today's world and what a year for female empowerment. We are pushing forward and women and men who are in powerful positions are doing what they can to take a stand and fight to shrink the pay gap and address other issues that face women, such as domestic abuse.

The SIREN ring, something that is so beautiful and so brilliant could not have come at a better time. According to the website, SIREN’s elegant and versatile design is intended for everyday wear, ensuring our discreet patent-pending technology is instantly accessible whenever needed. Upon activation, SIREN protects the wearer by emitting a piercing 110+ decibel alarm intended to startle and deter those who pose an imminent physical threat.

This is a brand of the future, bringing together both design and technology to better the lives of the individuals wearing them. The mission of the founder Kat Alexander and her father with whom she worked with to create the technology within the ring is simple:

"To design beautiful accessories that double as powerful and smart safety devices—and, of course, to empower those who wear them."
I fully support this mission and I hope more designers will begin to create pieces that are not only beautiful but also instrumental in initiating social justice.

Kicking off the Christmas Season with Burberry's "From London with Love" Video

I visited Bath this past weekend and although some pumpkins were still out and huge spiders hung from the ceilings a beautiful tree was already put up outside of the station and the winding cobblestone roads were beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Getting in the spirit isn't going to be tough this season as adverts are already covered in sparkles, snow, and great deals for those must have gift items, so I'd like to kick of this Christmas season with you, my friends, with the "From London with Love" Burberry video. Some great choreography, iconic London characters, and Romeo Beckham is the star! Enjoy!
