Show your True Colours and Stop Bullying

I am sure you're aware that bullying has become a very big issue, especially now with cyber bullying.

It is very sad to see that people are taking their own lives due to being bullied. An interesting fact - Think of seven people you know, and at least one of them had been bullied, or is a bully.

We should all work together, take a stand and make a difference. One way to do so is through the Kids Help Phone. Also, check out what some of Canada's biggest stars (Simple Plan, Hedley, Lights, FeFe Dobson, Kardinal Offishall, Alyssa Reid, and Walk Off the Earth) are doing - they recorded a new version of the song "True Colors". Download the song on itunes now and 100% of the net proceeds go to Kids Help Phone. For more info about the Show your True Colors campaign, click here.

You can also show your support with a True Colors T-Shirt. BlueNotes has partnered with True Colors, it's only $10 and once again, all proceeds got to Kids Help Phone. You can pick one up online or at the store.

Let's do this - together we can shine the spotlight on bullying and work to overcome this global issue.

Maison Martin Margiela for H&M count down

Only a few more days till the launch of the Maison Martin Margiela for H&M Collection - who's excited!! Available Thursday November 15 @8am.

The more I read more about Maison Martin Margiela, the more of a fan I am becoming.

A little background info: MMM is a french fashion house which as always followed its own path, often outside the conventional fashion framework.
They constantly questioning the norms of fashion and presenting its pieces through the technique of deconstruction and transformation, their collections reinvent volumes, modify shapes, change the original use and movement of garments and derail classic notions of fashion.

The collection for H&M consists of apparel and accessories for both men and women. A very neat thing - each piece is specifically labeled with a unique tag indicating the season from which its originated, spanning 23 years since the Maison's funding. (noted in their logo above)

For all the info of the collection including prices, looks and how to shop, check out H&M website here.

Some of the pieces I am hoping to get/on my wishlist:

Both this and the bottom tops are regular long sleeves but printed
to appear like a sweater and a button down shirt - neat!!

Check out some of the very cool/interesting accessories:


Handbag-with a handle made from a pair of glove


Upsidedown handbag - that's right, made to wear upside down!

Candy wrapper clutch

Lastly, here are some ads for the collection:

Happy Movember!
