Red Sunglasses

There is something about sunglasses that really add that pow to your summer outfit. Besides adding mystery, rock star quality and blocking UV rays – sunglasses really allow you to check guys out without them ever knowing. Red sunglasses are the ish this summer. Red can mean so many things, you can use the color red to grab attention and to get people to take action. Use red when you don’t want to sink into the background. Use red to suggest speed combined with confidence and perhaps even a dash of danger. A little bit of red goes a long way. Small doses can often be more effective than large amounts of this strong color. Multiple shades of red and even pink or orange can combine for a cheerful palette. source

The best place in Toronto hands down for trendy unique sunglasses is none other than Kensington Market. They have at least 5 stores with a huge selection. Over 100 different types easily and not more than $5 a pop. Kensington Market is on Spadina Ave south of College, north of Dundas. Go get yourself a pair or ten. ^_^

Here are my red sunnies + my dog Jacob

Sunny Days


Woo! First warm day after a long cold winter ^_^ Blogging to you live from a sunny patio.


With lots of summer events coming up, I went to two malls in hopes of finding 6 cute outfits in one go. No luck! This is why D-I-Y is always better. For those of you who are not crafty, D-I-Y stands for Do It Yourself! That is exactly what I did. I spent 2 hours at the Bay and Dundas Canadian Tire with automotive expert Dellon.. and made these!



All you need is the right tools, a good imagination, a vision and a plan… et voila!




These look ultra slick over boots but stilettos work also.

Stiletto… Run??!!

So excited, hello Shay! Double the blogging and so much fun ^_^


Are you KIDDING me?!??


Rules are: 3-inch plus. 100 metre dash, winner’s time was about 14.7 seconds. HOLY SMOKE STACKS. No running in high heels for me.


Happening in Toronto this summer

Here is what the 2008 winner in Berlin said:
“The 24-year-old office worker claims to not have trained specifically for the event, but apparently she didn’t have to. “I have to run around every day with high heels on, and I’ve always been a good runner,”

she spent her prize money on… shoes!
