My stilettos are back on the shelf again after attending World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto October 22-26 at David Pecaut Square. I have an inside look at the show in it’s entirety while overseeing the Essie booth inside the tent. For those looking for a stylish, fashionable nail makeover, Essie, the official nail sponsor of the week, offered free manicures. Essie’s gorgeous Winter Collection arrives November 1st at major retailers, like Shoppers Drugmart. Check out my gorgeous nails! They definitely evolved throughout the week; what started as a LuxEffects French manicure quickly turned into Flashy Gold #BeyondCozy nails from the Winter Collection with LuxEffects tips, finally adding in a red accent nail by the end of the week. The red is ‘Leading Lady’ again, hot out of the Essie Winter Collection. Look at the gorgeous Essie polishes fresh for Winter…
Another striking highlight of the week was when Stacie Mckenzie breezed into Maybelline for an adorable photo set with us. I never feel quite prepared for coming face-to-face with a top model I’ve admired for so long. She is truly a sweetheart not to mention a total babe! Here are some of my favorite photos from the week…
As for the shows, Joe Fresh was glitzy, contrasted leather and sheer looks prevailed, and Express closed the show. Afterward, Express hosted a stellar studio party where they gave VIPS free clothes! My new all black STUDIO STRETCH WIDE WAISTBAND EDITOR PANT fit like a dream. Thanks Express.
I sat at Travis Taddeo in the studio, utterly wowed by the dominance of leather at this show. Taddeo juxtaposed a Leather Vest on Sheer, a One Shoulder Blue Backless Dresses with V cuts, Metallic accents, White Ruffle Skirts, White Belted Sheer gowns, interesting cuts, patterned grays on whites, and did I mention a lot of leather layer?
WMCFW describes TRAVIS TADDEO as having ‘gained a loyal following among fashion risk-takers by pushing and overcoming the conventional expectations established for Canadian fashion design. Known for his combination of minimal lines and distinctive blends of silk, jersey, leather and fur, Taddeo offers simplicity with edge by creating a bold marriage between luxury and street wear,’. Montreal-based Travis Taddeo brought a definitive edge to his chic, minimalist looks in his spring-summer collection at World MasterCard Fashion Week.

Toronto’s World Mastercard Fashion Week kicked off its 27th season yesterday and I am here to bring you a behind-the-scenes view of the action! Yesterday saw fashion houses Holt Renfew and Pink Tartan showcasing their hottest spring trends. Notably, the emphasis has been on metallics, lace, oxblood, and cream colors. ” From an azure blue draped sleeved satin dress from Yves Saint Laurent to a colour-blocked coat from Celine, a patterned Prada suit and sleek tuxedo from Tom Ford, the looks on display offered an extensive range of apparel and accessories, with outerwear, evening-wear and everything in between. While a large portion of the designer showcase was devoted to international labels, homegrown talents had their time to shine, either featured in standalone looks or teamed with apparel and accessories from foreign brands,” Ottawa Citizen notes. For me, I am in ESSIE Nail heaven while taking full advantage of backstage sights and sounds at Fall Fashion week.

September 29th 2012 saw a bevy of beautiful Monster Ladies and pro riders from around the globe entertain thousands of Motocross Fans at Montreal Olympic Stadium. I flashed my pearly whites on the podium as riders crossed the finish line.
From MontrealMotocross.com: ” After winning earlier his MX1 class for the second year in-a-row, Californian Matt Goerke was ready for an encore in the Monster Energy Grand Finale at the Monster Energy Supermotocross, presented by Parts Canada/Thor, on Saturday, September 29. On a shorter track, the match between the top MX2 and MX1 riders proved to be an interesting outing, but eventually, the more powerful 450 cc MX1 bikes swept the podium. Again, as he did in his earlier race, Goerke led all 13 laps to finish eight seconds ahead New Yorker Bobby Kiniry. Third place went to Teddy Maier of Iowa, his first podium finish of the night. Fourth place went to MX2 rider Cole Thompson, who had won the MX2 class race earlier in the night, Thompson of Bridgen, Ontario finished ahead of MX1 rider Tyler Medaglia of Ottawa and Dusty Klatt of British-Colombia. MX2 rider Kaven Benoît took seventh ahead of Jeremy Medaglia.”
From Racer X: ” While most of the world was focused on the international affair of the Monster Energy Motocross of Nations, a different international event also took place with the annual Montreal Supercross in Canada. No surprise who won the race, though, as American Matt Goerke, riding for Team Leading Edge Kawasaki, continued his roll up North, taking both the MX1 final and the Superfinal, which combined 450s and 250s together. Goerke also cleaned up in the motocross nationals up there. ”

1. Always be yourself. If someone else doesn’t like it, who cares baby!
2. Always enjoy life and never take anything personally. Ever. Even if it appears someone insults you repeat to yourself: “it is not so” and smile. Things are not what they seem.
3. Envision your goal. Don’t stop until you get it. KNOW you create your entire world.
4. Always operate from logic and reason, never emotion.
5. Realize your thoughts. Make the most of your time. Use notes and plan.
6. You are always doing exactly what you should be. Always. Remember this often. Take a moment daily to look around yourself and your surroundings, instead of getting lost in never ending thought.
7. Ask yourself often “Who am I?”
8. Maintain a very lighthearted approach to life. Things aren’t always what they seem. This is why is is crucial to your success that you NEVER worry.
9. Encouraging, aiding, and LOVING the success of others also facilitates your own success. Genuinely lift others up when you have the opportunity.
10. You can do it! You can do anything. Know this. Truly.
11. Take care of yourself! Stretch, drink water and get a massage.
Here is a fun lesson in how we perceive reality taken from Buddhist teachings: When you look into a mirror are you looking at your face? The answer is no. You are looking at a mirror. The mirror is simply a reflection, creating an illusion. A mirror is not accurate, nor is it tangibly you. Do not let what you see in the world fool you. Things are not what they seem. This is why, moment by moment, before we consider our automatic response to situations it is important to pause first; to look quietly – in attempt to better understand what it is we are truly seeing. Lastly, every opportunity in your life, every event – is a chance for you to express Who You Truly Are. This is why it is important to be thankful in all situations. Even in the most terrible situations: You are given the chance and opportunity to choose your reaction. Keep this in your mind, and next time you find yourself in a long line up, or running late, choose your reaction for the better – and thank the energy force that allows you to express yourself freely in these situations. Positivity is contagious, and when you dish it out a lot, the Universe has no choice but to keep sending you a lot more of it. The only way you can know this is to practice, and watch how far you soar.
Recently I filmed a spoof with the Friends of Canadian Broadcasting at Chorus Entertainment. The PSA explores the many future possibilities of CBC programming. I had SO much fun shooting at Chorus Entertainment. Everyone on set was really wonderful to work with. We had a lot of laughs in between takes.

OK, maybe not yet… but with how the Harper government has been treating our public broadcaster, is Lance Fury so far off? Help stop the CBC Smackdown by taking action at http://www.cbcsmackdown.ca “
Personally, while I do not really have an opinion on the affairs of CBC, I totally had a blast filming this PSA for FoCB.
What do you think the CBC should focus on? Should it run American game shows and American-style reality shows, like Wheel of Fortune or Battle of the Blades?
Should it strive to be more connected to its audience, as the Globe argued in a recent editorial? Or should aspire to better arts programming, as TV critic John Doyle proposes?
