Parlour is out!

The new issue of Parlour is out, it took way too long making its way out onto the streets. But I'm proud of every page, the team did an amazing job and onto the rest for dreamers. Please check out to see the whole magazine.

The cover was a dream of mine, to be surrounded by flowers and draped in fur, leather, lace and denim and of course only the best costume jewellery. One of the wonderful things about owning a magazine is living out your girl fantasies.

I know I have been missing. But I've been trying to get this next issue together, and any chance I get I drive to Calgary to see my boyfriend... excuses....excuses.

Today I'm cozied up with my laptop and a warm ginger tea and ready to catch up on everything I have been pushing to the side.

parisienne YSL...

Kate Moss takes my breath kitten!

the sweetest thing...

I really can't believe how wonderful my boyfriend is. We were on location for our fall fashion layout in the foothills near Calgary and he came along for the adventure. The day was long and tiring and when I came back to my car, there was this wonderful wild flower bouquet waiting for me on my car seat. I must say the man has a talent for flower arranging.

my first vogue...

Vogue September 1991
Wild at heart
photo : Peter Lindbergh
style : Grace Coddington
models : Linda, Cindy, Helena, Naomi, Claudia, Tatjana and Karen

I can't believe this issue is 18 years lucky I would never let my parents throw out my massive collection of Vogues that I stored at their house. I told them that Vogue is like fine wine.

where it all started...

Vogue September 1991
A Shot of Scotch
Styled by Grace Coddington
Hair by Didier Malige for Frederic Fekkai at Bergdorf Goodman
Makup by Sonia Kashuk for Aveda
Photographed by Arthur Elgort

Stored at my parents house are all my old Vogue magazines that I have collected, it's crazy but the first one in my collection in the September 1991 issue. This one is in the worst one in the collection, I would pour over the pages day after day. Never in a million years would I have dreamt that one day I would have my own magazine...but here we are.

fall into you...


The clouds rolled in, I'm stressed out from car shopping and I miss my boyfriend. I'm new to this long distance relationship thing, it's tough when you have a hard day and all you want to do is fall into his arms, cuddle on the couch and watch an old movie.

Feeling a little girlie this morning. The sun is out, another beautiful day and my birthday is right around the conner.

a muse...

photographer Ellen Nolan

Model Erin O'connor

a little daydream...


I'm a lover of day dreams... Mine are always the same, living in Paris in my charming apartment spending my days in cafes or wondering the streets of Paris and of course shopping. Shopping for Dior dresses to fill my closets, fresh flowers to brighten up my day, books and paintings to inspire my dreams, and lace lingerie for my late night rendezvous.

a girl can dream....

the city of paris

Eugene Atget

Eugene Atget (1857 - 1927) was a French photographer who was known for documenting the architecture and street scenes of Paris. The haunting beauty of these photos leave you feeling nostalgic for a walk in the streets of a dream-like Paris.

Patrick Watson

Patrick Watson is an wonderful indie band from Montreal, Canada that has my heart. The video above is about 2 years old but the song is one of my favourites and I just love the video. The video Fireweed is from their latest album Wooden Arms and is directed by Patrick Watson himself.

a girls bestfriend...


I honestly can't believe it's the end of summer! Booooo... Well I'm enjoying the last fav ice cream. I actually gained a little weight this summer but come on who wants to do yoga when you could go for a walk with your favourite ice cream.

Sorry I haven't blog much lately but I've been busy falling inlove...and loving every second of it.

I adore these prints from Yellena a artist/illustrator that I stumbled upon on etsy...I think I just might have to get some prints for my kitchen.

Tim Walker dreamland...

I'm a little bit inlove with photographer Tim Walker. This is how I dream...the world I want to live in, the world I want to be lost in and never return.

my Parlour fam...

So I decided that for my editor's letter photo I wanted a family photo, so off to Borden Park
we went. Found this kick ass water fountain and we let the silliness flow. I actually have a new found love for the park and it is sooo Edmonton (70s fav).
