Blogger-Fashion-Week-Logo-MAY5-11

Want to score a stylish item from the closets of your favourite Canadian bloggers? What about possibly finding something cool from the closet of THIS particular blogger?

Well, I’m happy to let you know that you’ll have a chance to do just that!

Presented by FASHION Magazine, Trend Trunk and Style Democracy, Blogger Fashion Week (#BFW) gives fashion addicts across Canada a chance to shop the closets of 100 of Canada’s emerging and established bloggers. Already underway (started May 5th and ends May 11th), you only have a few more days left to head to BloggerFashionWeek.com and see what goodies I, along with other awesome bloggers, have put up for sale. Some of us will also be donating a percentage of the proceeds to our favourite charity, (mine is the Toronto Humane Society) thanks to Trend Trunk’s Closets & Causes Program.

“We’re looking forward to helping bloggers grow the relationship with their fans and followers through this unique campaign. It’s extremely exciting to be launching our second Blogger Fashion Week right here in Canada with such an amazing group of bloggers and sponsors!” – Sean Snyder, Founder and President of Trend Trunk.

Also, thanks to Milestones Canada, when you vote for your favourite blogger (you will see a share/vote button on the top right of their closet’s page), you will have a chance to win a $50 Milestone’s gift card for yourself and another $50 gift card for that blogger. Fashion, shopping, charity and a chance to win free stuff? Sounds great, right? So make sure to check out BloggerFashionWeek.com, especially this Saturday, May 10th, when my closet will be featured.

Updates and Changes Coming Shortly

Hello wonderful readers,

As some of you may have noticed, I haven’t updated many parts of this blog in quite a while. There have been many things going on this past year and I have neglected it. I started by updating the “about” section today, which I have posted below. There is news about changes I will be making to the blog and an updated “bio” of myself. Slowly, but surely, I’ll get this blog back on track!

Hope you all have a fabulous and stylish day!

My name is Gia; I’m a 26 year old living in the suburbs of Toronto. I am most definitely a fashion addict. Aside from collecting fashion magazines like a maniac, my other interests include shopping (of course), travelling, reading and doing anything social media related. I also really enjoy art, music and playing (or attempting to play) golf. When I have time, I like to watch historical documentaries, Downtown Abbey, the Rachel Zoe Project, re-runs of the Hills and the City or the Devil Wears Prada for the 500th time. I no longer go to school, but am trying to figure out my life – find a career, move out and all that fun (er, not really) stuff.

With no specific style to call my own, I just wear what I feel like when I feel like. Rules, including style rules, are made to be broken; as long as you give off a confident vibe, feel awesome and have a great attitude, you can pull almost anything off!

I started this blog three years ago to voice my thoughts and opinions on fashion and style. As time went on, I started to write less and just post photos of my favourite looks from celebrities, the red carpet, film festivals, fashion weeks and those I consider style icons. I am now, as of September 2013, going to go back to my original plan for the blog and actually write. I hope to have new posts written and published very shortly, as soon as I have some time to do so. I will also post new photos in the “my photography” section, including photos from some of my recent trips and adventures. I also plan on having a section about beauty, which will include makeup and beauty product reviews, a section on health and fitness, another on food and recipes and much more.

I am very excited about these changes and hope you are too! So check back within the next few weeks or before November to see the changes and updates!
