Sneaker Diaries | YEEZY BOOST 750 All black

YEEZY750BOOST_B_ADIDAS_0105

After collectively losing our minds THREE times for YEEZY BOOST’s this past year, it’s safe to say that Kanye and adidas Originals have owned the high end ‘must-have’ sneaker game of 2015. With another 2 drops before 2016, I actually feel like I need to tell Kanye to stop playing with my feelings. adidas Originals also, stop with the heat! But also don’t stop because I like the heat and I want all of the YEEZY drops and they are very nice, thanks. Continue reading

Yoga, skincare & well being | Win with Venus Snap

GOLD CREATURES - VENUS SNAP - HAPPY SKIN-5

My favourite type of exercise has to be Bikram Yoga. Not for everyone I will admit, but it is the one type of exercise that ticks all of the different boxes for me, all at once. For those who know me personally, you’ll know that I am possibly one of the most competitive people on the planet. I. Must. Win. – Just kidding, I’m not that bad. Or am I? When I was in High school I excelled at many sports. I was the captain of the first team hockey, provincial swimmer and surfer, and I loved to run. Leaving school, I sadly left all that sport behind me as I embarked on my destined career path. I was to become a fashion designer! (Easier said than done). I quickly learned that in my studies to become the greatest fashion designer to ever live, I did not want to be a fashion designer at all! Touche.   Continue reading
