David Chou Design








David Chou is an up and coming Toronto-based designer. He uses high quality fabrics to create his extremely wearable pieces. Although there is a simplicity to his designs; intricate and unexpected details make each piece unique. David and I went to Ryerson University together for fashion design, and would love to collaborate on a collection one day. I caught up with him during my Christmas vacation in Toronto, and we shot some of his looks for his Etsy store. Shooting was a lot of fun, although I make an extremely awkward model.

David Currently makes custom clothing and also sells his unique clothing and accessories online at his Etsy Store. Also check out his blog to see more of his designs and illustrations.

Listen! Johnny Flynn




I heard about Johnny Flynn about a year ago, listened to some of his songs and liked him right away. Then I kind of forgot about him until recently. I listened to his album "A Larum" all the way through for the first time today and was blown away. click on his album cover to listen.

Instant Memories


I'm a big fan of the polaroid camera and like many others, was sad to hear that it had gone extinct. Thankfully, The Impossible Project is trying to keep the dream alive. Check out this article from Dazed and Confused Magazine, about The impossible project teaming up with Paul Giambarba, who created the original iconic design of polaroid film.








Whenever my friend Erisa comes to town, we always break out the polaroids.

Listen! Devotchka

I just recently discovered the band Devotchka. If you like Beirut, you'll probably like them.

Eau De Toilette



I'm trying to learn this song on the guitar right now. I don't really know how to play the guitar at all, but I'm trying to teach myself. I LOVE this song and its not actually that hard to play.

Listen! The Dodos

Indulgence

Last weekend, I went out for dinner with some friends at Reservoir, one of my favourite places in Montreal. This is the meal that i didn't order because it was my first time eating after 5 days of the flu and i thought it would be too indulgent. I still regret that decision. Pork and octopus on risotto, with lace made of cheese! Everyone else ordered this meal...they kept saying "oh no it's too good, we don't deserve this!"
I did have the dessert though sugar pie and chocolate pie, also too good.

My dinner was still really good, I definitely recommend this place for dinner and drinks after. Such a cozy place.
