The 2023 Levis Pride Collection

I guess the best way to start off this blog post is to define the term allyship and it’s importance to the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Why? Because amid a very busy Pride month I have born witness to a lot of performative allyship / marketing, extreme levels of hate towards our community, and have even had brand partners ask me to “tone it down” to avoid controversary. And this year I even received death threats in the comments section on multiple social media posts.

So yeah, I think it’s important that we talk about this a little more.

Have You Ever Just NEEDED an Item of Clothing?

Over the years I have been very lucky to work with brands making a difference in the world, and ones that hold a special place in my heart. I’ve told the story about my first job being at McDonald’s more times than I can count. Funny because having just started a new role in Ottawa I still think back fondly on the values it taught me and the skills I use all these years later.

I don’t often go so far as to bring fashion previews to you all here on the blog, but I was so in love with what I saw that I realized this may be the time to start thinking about to really make a statement with your wardrobe this season. Here’s how I am hoping to if all goes well – after all my birthday is just around the corner!

When You Wish Upon A Star

Well hello hello my friends. I hope that you’re all staying warm and enjoying the fact that Spring is (almost) right around the corner. Although I love a picturesque Canadian winter, I can say that I’m personally coming to the end of this year’s admiration of the colder weather.

With a new season around the corner, it’s also time to start thinking of new items for my wardrobe. While I have never claimed to be a fashionista, I am very lucky to have become a fan of collaborations and brands that speak to me and my busy life. You’ll have seen that (slowly) over the years I have really taken to dressing my best with the help of some spectacular brands. So when I found out about the newly launched Disney x Coach Collection, to say I was excited would be an understatement!
