I saw these over at Miss Moss yesterday and was enchanted, 
my love for them grew though when I saw where they were from- who would've thought?!

I had a mini holiday this weekend in Jasper. The Mountains were extraordinary with all their 
changing colours and fresh snow on the tops every morning. We even saw the cutest little black bear (ok I would not be saying he was cute if we were remotely close to him, but from a distance he was pretty darn cute!) 
One morning we walked around Mount Edith Cavell which has the most beautiful glacier and glacial lake below it. There were hundreds of little icebergs floating around and they were amazing with all their different shapes and patterns.
 Is it weird that i'm now feeling inspired by Icebergs?

Bah! How great are all these shoes from NYFW?!

Swissmiss is always an endless supply of inspiration and cool stuff, however this quote I saw the other day really struck a chord with me (plus I love John Holt).

Oh hello Friday! 
A hot indian summer mixed with Uni. back in has doubled the amount of people in my little corner of this city and it's lovely to see everyone outside walking around and eating outside in one last attempt to salvage summer.
Hope you're weekend is warm and laid back!

I'm back from my 'business trip' and feeling very business lady-like right now! 
I was reading about manifestos the other night and thought these were interesting. 
Do you have a personal manifesto?

I'm going up to northern Alberta today for a little bit and I started thinking about the Canadian Arctic and their fascinating culture.
In the late 50's the artist James Houston went to the remote Inuit community of Cape Dorset in Nunavut and started a graphic arts workshop, the idea took off and today Cape Dorset is a huge hub for Inuit art. 
One of their most prominent artists is Kenojuak Ashevak who started drawing in the late 1950's, her work has even been featured on postage stamps and coins in Canada.
 I love how her art is so  full of colour and life.

Yousuf Karshs portraits always take my breath away.
My favourite will always be the one of Hemingway.
