Little Dose of Sunshine

Got away for a little vacation this past week to the (mostly cloudy) Captiva Island in Florida. Thought some time in the sun might be just what I needed to clear my head, but if anything it has only gotten foggier. You see, going away for a week deemed “reading week” (most likely just a Canadian university thing but I’m not completely sure) simply puts your mind into a constant state of thinking how far behind you will get by relaxing. In effect, I probably would have been less stressed if I had remained at school.

Fortuntely, I have actually just written an essay on this for one of my classes, so this short little blog post break can technically still be considered studying. In a world of constantly going, is there ever any true relaxation?

Consider this; if anyone from your workplace truly needed to get a hold of you, they could probably do it at any hour of the day, awake or asleep, wherever you are. Isn’t that just a little frigtening? We can never fully disconnect. Even in my no wifi, no phone service state I find myself constantly cutting my time by the pool short to return to my hotel room and check how my instagram post is doing. So for the remainder of my trip, I resolve to fully disconnect. And, I challenge anyone reading this to do the same, pick a day in the near future and leave your phone at home. I have a feeling your mind will thank you.

1 Shade of Mauve

Ok, when I saw this dress this week I knew it would have to be praised. Something has to be said for this girl’s stylist. The dress Dakota Johnston wore to the premiere of 50 Shades Darker really shocked me at first. It is so unbelievable simple, but she looked so amazing. All components of the look from her gorgeous braid to the way the dress draped when her costar Jamie Dornan put his hand around her waist. It was refreshing and different while still being classic and elegant.

What do you guys think of her look?

Feminist Fashion

Due to recent events, a wave of girlpower has spread across the US and other supporting countries. Personally, watching the news from Canada still makes me feel like part of the movement. In tough times, women get tougher.

The thing I love most about this is it is bringing all types of women and other feminism supporters together, giving the issue a global focus. Fortunately, the actions won’t stop here. Major corporations and brands are getting on board to protest all kinds of current issues. One of my favourite ways to show support is through catchy clothing items. Not only do they make a statement in the fashion sense (which is kind of irrelevant) but they focus on a larger message. This is something many celebrities and sartorial stars are getting on board with. Here are my picks:
