Posted on: Friday, August 28, 2015

Well, hello there. Colorful swimwear by SWAM

We love clothes, shoes, food and MEN! It’s no secret. Along with men, we love Men’s Fashion. In the last couple of years, Men’s fashion has been brought to a higher level so high, in fact, that many fashion insiders, like us, are more about studying men’s fashion over women’s. Last week, we took in TOM (Toronto Men’s Fashion Week) to see what is to come for Spring Summer 2016. One thing we noticed and adored was the heavy introduction with prints on men, bespoke suiting, and lighter fabrics. We had our stand out favorites, including 3.Paradis who we helped style at World MasterCard Fashion Week FW15. The design duo won the Emerging Menswear Designer Award (EMDA) this season. Check out pieces we liked below and be inspired by men’s fashion.

Time Festival at Fort York, Toronto really brought out the strongest up and comers in the music industry today last weekend! A nice break for the top 40 crowd, with acts from all genres of music. There was not a low note with the acts this year including:

ALISON WONDERLAND
ARIEL PINK
BADBADNOTGOOD
DIE ANTWOORD
DIIV
ELLIOTT VINCENT JONES
FREDDIE GIBBS
LOBBY
MAC DEMARCO
RYAN HEMSWORTH
TOMMY KRUISE
TORY LANEZ

The crowd was energetic regardless of the tropical temperatures. Food trucks kept the crowd full and happy. This festival is a smaller one, but that is all the reason to purchase tickets next year and get involved. We use the smaller festival opportunities to fall in love with new artists. Stand out performers were Tory Lanez, Alison Wonderland and DIIV.

Styles Unite!

We both enjoy style. To us, style is the heartbeat that follows Music. Although we both enjoy style, we have distinct preferences in how we dress. Telly and I have different body types, so although we share many pieces, we dress differently. This photo spread shot by our amazing friend and blogger colleague Anesha of memoirsofanesha.com shows how different we truly are. The joke is usually, Telly is LA and Carcia is NYC.

Summer Bevvie Flat Roof Manor Pinot Grigio

Posted on: Thursday, August 6, 2015

Wine, white wine, Flat Roof Manor Pinot Grigio Pinot Grigio, south africa, light wine, alcohol

Summer time calls for long hours on the patio or deck under the hot Sun. What makes these times overly enjoyable is the liquor of choice for your girlfriends. A few nights ago, we treated house guests to South Africa’s Flat Roof Manor Pinot Grigio. This bevvie is pale yellow with a hint of green. The taste is fruity including green apple and lemon flavors with pear and citrus aromas. This is a light wine, but it is dry and tasty when chilled. Priced at LCBO for approximately, $11.25 this light, crispy and fresh wine will overly satisfy the white wine drinker.

The face & creator of MYX Fusions is sure cute, that being Nicki Minaj, but the drink tastes great too! Over the Much Music Video Awards weekend at The Field’s Annual Afternoon Party, we sipped on MYX Fusion Moscato Mango. The wine drink infused with fruit juices will be a hit this summer. The drink isn’t too sweet or harsh and has a twist cap for easy opening. Great drink for us girls! Just chill it and drink.
