Where I’ve Been and Where I’m Going

…to an incredibly luxe and stunning media preview of the much-anticipated Crème de la Crème wedding showcase, I’ve been popping in and out of many a locale (both online and IRL) as of late!

On the agenda this week, we’ve got a media preview of the Topshop launch at the Bay, a chance to watch Metric (one of my all-time faves) live, a fun modeling project with a much-loved local publication and a pop-up gallery at Ishara! Along with meet-ups with friends/boyf, job-related meetings and the random things that always pop up during the week, this will be a seriously packed week – just the way I like it. Life always seems happier when it’s busy, doesn’t it?

And if in the midst of your own busy week you feel inclined to do a little good, stop by my friend Janene’s fundraising page – she will be chopping off her beautiful raven locks come January 1st for Locks of Love and is raising funds for the the Canadian Breast Cancer Society as well! Donation intake ends October 25th so if you even have a little to give, it’d be amazing if you could donate to her great cause before then. She’s just over $3.1K so far – let’s try to make it $5K!
