Off To The Races

I wore this outfit to the Persona Non Grata Art Initiative last Friday.  It was an amazing event that reminded me that no matter how much things aren't going my way, there are kids out in this world who don't have parents and are struggling everyday to have their basic needs met. Being immersed in an industry that is so materialistic and appearance based, it's so easy to forget what is important.  I don't plan on saving the world, but for me, at the end of the day, I think I sleep a little better knowing that I've made a difference in somebody's life.

Speaking of making a difference if anyone can point me in the direction of just watermelon jolly ranchers in Toronto, I will be forever grateful. I swear they stopped making them...

  10. That's such a cute outfit, and it's true that sometimes you have to step back and looking at whats really going on in the world to appreciate what you have! Btw, I think they must have stopped making the apple jolly ranchers here in America because when I buy one of those big bags, it only has watermelon,cherry, and grape in it! Lol maybe we should switch countries!

  30. I think you have nice bracelet and when I look at that can be pretty good. Used to meet with some Black chain strap bag or even some best style Black Leather Boston bag but that really confuse me in many moment!
