The Motorcycle Show – Toronto 2016

CbswCzvUkAAsgaD

This weekend, I stopped by The Motorcycle Show in Toronto to check out some of the latest bikes, gear and crews.

I’m on the hunt for my first ever bike so it was awesome to get the chance to sit on so many different bikes and get a feel for them before even thinking of purchasing one. It was fun to check out some of the latest models from Harley Davidson, Indian Motorcycles, Yamaha, Honda and more. I learned a whole lot from the people I met at the show, especially from the crew at Torch Motorcycles. Patti, one of their co-founders spoke to me about their mission of building bikes for a community of diverse women. It was really refreshing to get a women’s perspective on riding and get tips from her.

The show also offered a bunch of different presentations including a safety demonstration by the OPP Golden Helmets as well as the chief instructor at S.M.A.R.T. Adventure riding school.

Check out the little recap video I did below:

The Motorcycle Show will be in Montreal next week, the last destination on its cross-Canadian tour. For more info, visit: http://themotorcycleshow.ca/.

WMCFW FW14 Day 1 #DailyOutfit

For this season’s runway shows I decided to keep my outfits pretty warm as the weather outside is still super brutal. For my first look of the week, I’m wearing shades of white, off white and black. I opted for a more rock n’ roll outfit to kick this exciting week of high fashion!!

American Eagle #DailyOutfit

This weekend I watched an amazing documentary on Netflix (between some House of Cards episodes!!) called “Spinning Plates“, which profiles three different restaurants in the US that are each so unique and different but who all get struck by tragedy. The doc reveals how meaningful food can be and how powerful it can be to bring people together. The documentary film has won several awards already and I can see why. A truly touching story, worth watching!

SPINNING-PLATES

Really excited to be going back to LA tomorrow! I can’t believe it’s already been several months since my last trip. It’s crazy how time flies! My upcoming trip can be summarized by the following words: Friends x Surfing x Food x Tattoos x Fashion. Wearing my American Eagle sweater from Topshop to celebrate today. Getting ready to go!!

Jean on Jean #DailyOutfit

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! I attended the sold-out show The Balconies put on Saturday at Lee’s Palace. Couldn’t be more excited about their current success! Offner and I also spent time antiquing in Newmarket with the lovely Chevy Cruze Diesel I had been driving all week. Check back soon for a full recap of my #ChevyDrive adventure from this past week!

Got a super long 6 day work week ahead but counting down the days until my next trip in less than two weeks. Can’t wait to soak in the Miami sun!!

Today’s outfit: Jean on jean on leather… and a banana? Never hurts to have a little fun 😉

September Blues #DailyOutfit

Yesterday we received our first ever Fresh City Farms vegetable and fruit bag, from local organic farmers in Ontario. I can’t believe I didn’t think of doing this before. For $30 a week, they deliver right to your doorstep a bag filled with seasonal fruits and veggies. You can also add a bunch of extras to your bag: cheese, honey, fresh bread, etc. They also give you some sample recipes every week, recipes for the fruits and veggies in your bag. What’s great about getting a different bag each week is that it forces you to not only eat healthy but also helps you be more creative with the food you make. Plus, being someone who eats a lot of fruits and veggies every day, I find that this makes it a lot cheaper.

So last night, I used some of the veggies we had received to make my first ever homemade pottage. It really didn’t take long! I basically just boiled a bunch of veggies from the bag (leek, brocoli, mushrooms, tomatos, garlic), added a few spices, a bit of oil and olive juice, a touch of almond milk and blended everything up. Voilà! Perfect for the fall!

It’s now pant weather again! Feels good to take out some of my favs from last season. Seems like I’m not the only one who’s stoked about fall fashion. One of the things I’m most excited about this season, are all the rad jackets that are coming out. Here are some of my favorite jackets for the fall… Wish I could get them all! AHH they are so heavenly!!

Grey Knee High #DailyOutfit

It’s a pretty chilly summer day in Toronto today and because I wanted to still wear a pair of shorts, I found a great alternative to keep my legs warm – Knee Highs Socks!!

I love today’s outfit because it feels pretty badass with my new faux leather biker jacket from Zara, my Springsioux poncho, my The 2 Bandits cuffs and the rad Verameat mermaid sword necklace. I love the mix of black and grey!

How do you keep warm on cold summer days?! I saw a few people wearing scarves and beanies yesterday. Pretty wild if you ask me! I’m not ready to admit yet that fall is just around the corner…

Happy Wednesday!
