BB Dakota Bostwick Wool Toggle Coat

I want this coat.

I saw a girl walking on the campus of Ottawa University yesterday, wearing this coat in the camel version, and it was instant love!!!!

Bostwick Coat
BB Dakota

Just found out it's from the lovely Canadian company BB Dakota !!!!
Beige or blue? What is your vote?

The Neat Sheet captured Nicole Cook in the coat at the beginning of November!

Both pictures Neat Sheet

I was also very inspired by Vanessa (Jessica Szohr)'s jacket on Gossip Girl yesterday. It's a Pendleton, retailing for about 700$ at Opening Ceremony!

Out in the cold...

So this is my first time experimenting with my dad's old tripod. It's almost December, and pretty cold here in Canada. Plus it gets dark at around 4pm, hence making it quite a challenge to take pictures by daylight...

Ok so enough excuses, here are my first two tripod-freezing in the dark- outfits pictures!

Outfit: Mink Pink dress, Ardene black tights, vintage boots and sweater, Aldo earrings (maybe too dark to see), and the hair that I tried to make platinum=copper-ish.

Can you see the snow-ice on the ground? :)

Next time I will smile more! :) Promise!

Platinum blond!

I want to dye my hair platinum, just for the fun of it, once in my life!


I tried yesterday with the Extra-blond bleaching

Feria, L'Oréal

My hair is nice, but more copper-ish.

I wish it could be like Britt Maren's

Long life to curvy women

Working all day on different (fun) projects for work. Ended stumbling upon some photos of Marilyn Monroe I had never seen before! 


And then I found the following picture of her which I just LOVE!!! She looks so healthy and she reminds me a bit of model Crystal Renn who I'm loving more, and more. Yay to curvy woman!


Garance Doré

 Ah Crystal Renn is beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!!!! And why not throw in one last picture, this time of Christina Hendricks from Mad Men.

 Long life to curvy women!!!

Emma Watson Marie-Claire December 2010

Friday already! Seems like the week has flown by although time today is standing a bit still...


I usually never buy a magazine simply for it's cover, but this week I couldn't wait to get a copy of Marie-Claire, December edition featuring Emma Watson, her new buzz cut, and life after Harry Potter. I'm not a Harry Potter fan, just curious to see where life post-Potter will take her.

Plus I love her style and her ad campaigns with Burberry.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Do what you love!

A blog I have been reading for quite some time is


Currently, Ryan is doing a project with The GAP where he is profiling women from all over who have found a way to Do What They Love. He found people that are living their lives on their own terms and truly doing what they love for a living, from artists, to teachers, to candlestick makers, anything that keeps a big smile on their face.

A great series of photos, videos, profiles that I encourage you to visit if you are looking for a bit of inspiration of your own!

Pacing the Panic Room

I have quite liked reading these profiles as I'm also searching and trying to figure out my future career path...

So, read, enjoy...and Do what you love :)!

It goes perfectly with my own theme of the week: The debut of RED NAILS. First time I paint my nails red and I chose Revlon Red for the occasion!
