So I am auditioning to be MuchMusic’s New VJ 2.0 and in order to spice up my entry I made a video like many others did. It was a whole lot of fun, and I also got to snap a few pictures of the people I interviewed! My friend Holly was super patient as my bodyguard, assistant and cameraman, and on top of that I got a picture of her outfit too!

I’ve been talking to a lot of my girlfriends about this blog since I’ve asked so many of them if I could use them as my real girl models and every single one has asked me what they should wear. They all assume they need to show up in big names and cascading heels, so I’ll reiterate my point. So many blogs, though fabulous, are mini Vogues or InStyles. Lots of big names, lots of big shoes, and lots of girls with the “look”; I want your style and your look! We all look at what is “now” and see how we want to interpret it. We can’t all pull off the trends so we make them work for us; that’s what I’m looking for. So if your key look is quirky casual and you just love comfortable clothes and that’s what you feel most attractive in, that’s perfect!

When I was asking the 2 girls whose pictures I took after I interviewed them they were very shy and I immediately saw their posture cave in a bit, when I explained that I had been taking pictures of all my girlfriends and they took them for myself they warmed up a bit knowing that I was up there just like they were going to be. Maybe they were more comfortable because they knew we were in it together, or maybe because they saw that I was just a regular girl who enjoyed clothes. Not sure, but it was interesting none the less.

And I just had to snap the medieval duo. Just had to.

Then as if the day wasn’t big enough for me, that night my friend Lauren invite some of us to se a movie at the film festival that her cousin (extremely distant apparently) produced. It was a fun excuse to dress up and take some photos of course! Although I remember why I always tried to take pictures before the sun went down, red eye! Oh well, I hear red eyes are coming back, very hot for fall ’09…to match all the red lips, obviously. With a ticket for the movie we also received discounted entrance to the after party (hosted by Vivica A. Fox…NBD. But actually.) The after party started out kind of lame, but then the cast came and the 2 main actors in the film (and one of their wives) were nice enough to spend most of their time there with us which was a lot of fun! They were hilarious and great for keeping the creepers at bay! One of them was even nice enough to pose for the blog! A legendary day…first man on the blog!

Lauren will soon be adding beauty tips and articles to this blog! She is my wife, housemate, and personal make-up artist…doesn’t hurt that she is also a professional make-up artist and has worked events all over Toronto and is a freelance artist for Yves Saint Laurent make-up!
