During this holiday season I plan on...

During this holiday season I plan on going shopping real soon, since it's been a really long time. I really wish there were more vintage and unique stores in the malls close to home, although going on an adventure downtown Toronto is also worth it because there all over. My sister is usually my helpful stylist and I'm looking forward to spending quality time with her during the holidays until she goes back to Ottawa. Below are really pretty and flirty party outfits :)


I recently watched the film Penelope "A modern romantic tale about a young aristocratic heiress born under a curse that can only be broken when she finds true love with "one who will love her faithfully." The curse is that she has a pig nose and pig ears and her parents protected her and forbid her to go out in the real world because people would be scared of her. Long story short the curse was broken when she learned to love and accept herself and she turned into a normal girl. 

It's been a while...

It has been months since I last posted something. It has been a very busy semester for me and I have been working really hard in school to prepare my graphic design portfolio so I can go on interviews for field placement. Well, all that hard work paid off because I was chosen to be an intern at a corporate design firm. Here are some of my works:
