It has arrived! We dreamt it, and we created it—ARCHETYPE Magazine is an actual thing, you guys! 

It's crazy to think that Shan and I were conceptualizing this magazine in February of this year—and now here it is, live and in living colour! If you'd like to direct order a copy for yourself, click on the "e-mail" link on the sidebar just there -------------------> 

I'll be sure to get back to you!

Things have been pretty busy, to say the least, and so I've had just enough time to snap an outfit of two for instagram. Here are a few of my favourite outfits as of late. I've got some exciting things coming up, and I'll get into it in another post, for sure. In the meantime, though, check the blog's sidebar, and you'll get a pretty good idea about what my "secret" project is. 



How many leather jackets do you need to own before you can officially call it a problem? Folks, you're currently looking at the 7th leather jacket to make its way into my (now very packed) closet. 

I hate to play favourites, but this one may actually be my favourite. For the first time all year, I'm actually GLAD that the weather's not been particularly hot, because it means I can wear this beaut!

Despite having the worst cold in the history of colds, I left the house on one of the warmest days since the he polar vortex hit the city.

Thanks to my informal photog Jamila, who takes these shots in exchange for girl talk and the occasional piece of advice on her love-life. Little does she know, I'm getting the better half of the bargain, as I know little to nothing on how about relationships. I just got lucky and found a fella who is willing to put up with all my nonsense.

It's still cold out. Fortunately, it wasn't so cold I couldn't walk around with my jacket open—so I kept my jacket unzipped until the evening, when it got really chilly. Again. (Yes, I am absolutely bitter about this weather.)

I've learned to not get too excited about the warm weather, so I've made sure to bring my gloves and hat with me wherever I go, because you just never know with this Toronto weather. If your hands, like mine, are still freezing, you should grab a pair of Quill & Tine's touchscreen gloves—especially 'cause they're on sale right how! Even if you've decided to commit to "spring" weather and ditch your winter accoutrements, it wouldn't hurt to get a head-start on your winter wardrobe shopping for next year, as it seems like we're looking at a perpetual winter. 

The one up-side to this weather: No more snow, which means not having to wear my heavy-duty winter boots!
