For those of you who follow my instagram, you know a thing or two about my obsession with squats. Beach ball bum is my goal and I ain’t stopping for nobody. What better way to inaugurate my new ass with a fun-filled day at the DivaGirl Conference?

All you have to do is Retweet on twitter “I want to win a free pass from @Eurotrashgirls to the @DivaGirlFitness conference Saturday April 6th”!

Another season, another reason, to wear Bottega.
Finally summoned the courage to tote my satin snakeskin Bottega Veneta clutch in real life. I paired the bag with a layered outfit including my mom’s vintage checkered blazer with fox fur collar. My necklace was a gift from a friend, a hand painted bird skull mould, from Australia. My hair was inspired by The Blonde Salad and totally revamped by stylist, Kristina Lombardi at Loki Hair Studio. This look reminds me of New York City under the clouds, even though I was under the tents at David Pecaut Square in downtown Toronto, instead.
“I’m not even holding a camera, but incidentally, why is it when I do this *click click*, it means something different than when you look into my eyes?” I’m standing infront of Drew Haran, half-naked, in his studio in downtown Toronto. He’s waving his camera around emphatically as he speaks, trying to get me out my shell and be less nervous about that mechanical device in his hands. He adds, “photography is a conversation.”Tweet
If you don’t know by now, I’ve been enlisted to try the Eufora Damage Cure Clay Masque at the place where all hair goes to be born again, Loki Hair Studio. This time around I came in with hair from the gym – you know what that means. But Kristina and her team worked their magic, yet again. My hair feels softer, my dry scalp is bye bye bye and the colour is SO vibrant. Incidentally, at the end of my appointment, Kristina took out the measuring stick and I’m sitting pretty at 15 inches – we measure after every appointment as per the rules of The Long Hair Club. My goal is 20. You think I can make it ?
Loki Hair Studio is located at 2986 Dufferin Street just south of Lawrence Ave. phone number: 416-830-995Tweet
On Saturday, March 23rd at the Andrew Richard Designs venue in downtown Toronto, I will be attending the Second Annual Memory Ball Gala event and you should be there, too. I can’t tell you how important it is for fashion to give back to local causes. In this case, we’ll be raising money for The Alzheimer Society of Toronto. And as a writer, my cognitive wares are perhaps most dear to me. I can’t even begin to image what living with this disease is like, or in the case of the girls who founded the Memory Ball last year, give care to their mothers both diagnosed with it.Tweet
I have a crush on Vitaly Design. Their latest collection, Elements, boasts these sleek shapeshifter rose gold pieces. Matte finished makes them extra soft. Perfect with a tan, on the beach, in the sunshine all dewy-faced and bronzed. I’d pair rose gold with black and white – it’s an essential splash of luxe to warm the heart of even the most austere neutrals. The collection will be available very soon for purchase online at VitalyDesign.com and at select retailers worldwide.Tweet
This week I’m featuring Italian variety show superstar and every guy’s dream, María Belén Rodríguez Cozzani, but you know her as just Belén. Even whilst pregnant, this woman manages to be Eurotrash. Her style is italianissima grunge; she probably has some Replay jeans in her closet and most likely used to shop at Liu Jo before she could afford Luisa Via Roma. And she wears a bikini the only way Italian women know how: barely there, straps tied to the band (not around the neck), thong 0r as they say in Italy, la tanga. Ray-Ban aviators, always.
She is currently dating Stefano de Martino, dancer from the Italian talent show, Amici. Stefano is her baby daddy. But the tattoo man you see her with in some of the photos is her ex, Fabrizio Corona, who is now in prison serving a seven year sentence for blackmail. I told you, she’s got a grimy side to her. It’s OK, girl, that makes you more Eurotrash than ever.Tweet
