I love those mornings where you grab your guitar and words & melody just flow without thought. It is probably the best high I have felt just the process of creating something and then liking it afterwards.
I had the pleasure of merchandising this beautiful little store located in Creemore, ON called Mumba over the holidays. Founded by artist and designer Brenda Brown, Mumba is a one of a kind rustic little haven where you can find everything from artwork, unique home accents, to custom barnboard & other wood furnishings. The vibe is cozy, warm and welcoming. With that being said, I absolutely loved helping out here.

I stumbled upon this divine Magickal creature this morning and instantly became a little obsessed. Her music makes you feel like you have just stepped into a dark smokey room lit by candlelight surrounding an altar. There is this enchanting and mournful undertone to her songs, as her voice flows in and around the instrumentals with this timeless, ethereal quality. With a magical/gothic vibe to her music and aesthetic that leaves you a little spellbound, she draws you into a new age jazz/blues underworld of sound.
Listen for your self.
Now, I need to go to NYC and watch a show. Get it gurl.
I was feeling very Stevie Nicks today, while expressing my inner witch obviously. I remember when she appeared on AHS’s COVEN. I died, it was amazing.. and her wardrobe for the show was so on point.
A fun shoot I did with my friend Bobby Raffin back during our college days. We were both grungy babies who thought they were just “tooo cool. “
With their “no-fucks-given” attitude, unapologetic sound and lyrics; Deap Vally is feminist and raw af. I love their minimalist 90s punk meets blues rock sound. Lindsey Troy is basically Janis Joplin reincarnated with her growls, howls and screams. I get so excited when I find new music inspiration. I also have a thing for all girl rock bands because we need more of those, especially ones with a voice as powerful as this one.
Um, and can we also just acknowledge how hot they are… like the fringe crop top avec disco shorts on Linsdey, while you have her drummer, Julie wearing all 80s rock garb. I am salivating.
Free People Shaggy Fringe Cardigan

DIY Embroidered Patchwork Jeans
DIY Rusty Gold Suede Boots
Thrifted Vintage Lilac Frames (VV Boutique- you know what it is girl)
So, I am a huuuge free people lover. I’ve had this fringe duster cardigan for a couple years now, and it is still hands down the most favored piece in my non-matching eclectic wardrobe. My cousin calls it my *sheep jacket* (brat)
It’s safe to say I have clothing that others would find cringe worthy and its OK. I love my Clover Canyon beach print tunic that looks like a tent anyways with all of it’s tacky and unique glory LOL. (I’ll make sure to do a fun shoot in that one too)
I have been dabbling in a few DIY projects here and there and the most recent endeavor is the creation of these lovely hippie-esque embroidered patchwork jeans. I, personally think they are wonderful and I plan on making more! Maybe for sale, we will see.
I also took it upon my self to spray paint these thrifted beige suede boots which transformed into the ones I am wearing here. I originally wanted them to look more rustic, and they turned out like this instead. Kinda 70’s, kinda glam. Oh well, I don’t mind them. C’est la vie!
I have procrastinated with making a video for YouTube. So, here is my first upload ever. Hope you enjoy this sweet and simple cover of Girl Crush by Little Big Town
Was feelin’ my self a little today. No biggie.
