I never thought that at 29 I’d realize how much great it feels to wear a tutu. Most people write them off as childish fashion, but when Society+ introduced their tutus, I was among the very many who needed to own one. Of course, I gravitated immediately towards yellow and even worked it into a big Youtube lookbook collab that just a few months ago.
Do you ever just find the most perfect garment for you? One that literally could not be more fitting to your personal style and attitude? Well, I found said dress in my first ever Gwynnie Bee package and I just about lost it.
When someone asks you to go to a Rihanna concert, you don’t hesitate. That’s precisely what I did when my friend Jackie told me that Rihanna’s concert would be corresponding with my trip to Boston. In usual fashion, I painstakingly spend the weeks leading up planning my ensemble. Fortunately for me, I had already placed my order for this lace up dress
long before I said yes to the concert. If Rihanna could see me, I think she’d approve of my outfit wholeheartedly.
Now, lets talk about the actual concert. I wanna start by saying that Rihanna was incredible. There’s absolutely no denying that. She knows how to entertain and her energy filled the entire stadium, which isn’t an easy task. But damn, was the concert a huge bummer. From the second Jackie and I grabbed our seats, it was drama packed. Maybe I’m just too old and senile to really fit in with the young folk these days.
All things considered, the night wasn’t a complete bust. The second Rihanna came out (she opened with Stay and looked phenomenal!) I forget about everything. I’m an even bigger Rihanna fan now!

I’ve been blogging for 5 years but seldom do I have anyone take my photos. When the absolutely gorgeous Cindy
came to visit me in Boston, she asked me to be her model and I couldn’t have said yes faster. Cindy’s photography is unreal, she’s one of the most talented photographers that I know. I was and still am incredibly honoured that she made me her model for a day. These photos came out beautifully, don’t you think? You can hardly tell I’m freezing my butt off!
