I had the pleasure of spending the past few days modelling for Tonic Lifestyle Apparel's Fall 2013 Catalogue. Complete with blue steel looks - to mask our discomfort from the cold - and plenty of goofing around, it was a real treat working with the Tonic creative team, and I can't wait to see how it all comes together!

When my Grandfather was recovering from chemo and radiation therapy following his second run-in with Cancer, a measure of his physical condition and well-being was his readiness to retort, "I'm still kicking!" - a tongue-in-cheek way of showing us that he wasn't quite ready to kick the can just yet. A third battle won and seven years later, I'm happy to report he's "still kicking" and shows no signs of throwing in the towel anytime soon...a resilience and stubbornness that runs through my family, no doubt.
While I'm no where near kicking the can, I have certainly fallen off the blogosphere as of late and all due to good reason...

I have to admit, I'm a sucker for surprises. But what I love just as much is planning and scheming ways to surprise others (read: did I mention that I love all things surprises?). While Valentine's Day isn't an especially celebrated halmark in our books, the boyfriend and I do make the effort of planning (at minimum) a romantic evening for two. Although gifts aren't a customary component to this annual affair, I do believe that my latest endeavour will rock his world. One, because he won't see it coming (I hope) and two, because it's the kind of gift that keeps on giving...

Currently obsessed with this song and Sam Smith's amazing vocal talent. Not only does it remind me of how much I'm missing my man (who'll be home in 7 days from a 4 week work trip) but has been a contributing inspiration for a Spring/Summer dance project in the works. Stay tuned for a preview...
