Stuff I Wore - Here Birdie, Birdie...

What a beautiful weekend we had in Toronto - I love it, more please! I went and checked out Doors Open Toronto, a very cool event where more than 155 buildings & institutions across the city invite the public inside for a look around. I visited The Aga Khan Museum - what a great looking building inside and out! While I was there, I couldn't resist and just had to take advantage of the beautiful exterior space and took some pics for this posting : )

I'm loving this top I picked up at Uniqlo when I was in Hong Kong. I love to play badminton, so whenever I see any related clothes to the sport, which is usually not very often, I would probably get it. If you look closely, you'll see that there're badminton birdies all over the shirt - how fun?! I paired it with a pair of comfy joggers and red sneakers. Now, bring on the beautiful weather!

Balmain X H&M

Attention all fans of H&M's designer collaborations - it was announced that the Parisian house of Balmain will be H&M upcoming designer collaborator! The autumn guest collaboration with French luxury brand, Balmain - under the creative directorship of young Olivier Rousteing, which has grown into a global pop-culture phenomenon. We've seen many celebrities in his designs.

At the Billboard Music Awards the other night, Olivier and his friends Kendall Jenner and Jourdan Dunn walked the red carpet revealing the first pieces of the collection! Through social media, H&M and Balmain invited fans to join a movement of togetherness: #HMBalmaination.

"I want to talk to my generation: this is my main purpose as a designer. H&M allows me the unique possibility of bringing everyone into the world of Balmain, getting a piece of the dream and creating a global #HMBalmaination: a movement of togetherness, fueled on  a hashtag. The collaboration felf extremely natural to me because everybody can connect with the H&M brand. It calls for unity, and I am all for it", says Olivier Rousteing.

I have a feeling this latest collaboration with Balmain will be a hit, or #HMBalmaination! Mark it down on your calendar - available from November 5th, the collection will feature clothing and accessories for both women and men. I can't wait to see the full collection especially what will be in store for the guys! What do you think? Are you excited?

Hudson's Bay & Toronto 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games

I'm sure you guys heard, the 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games will be held in Toronto this summer! I'm super excited about the games and had already ordered tickets to some of the events: the Opening Ceremony, Volleyball and Badminton! If you get a chance, I think you should definitely go and check out the games, for more info & tickets, click here. Go Canada, go!

Just last week, Canada's iconic retailer, Hudson's Bay unveiled the official Team Canada Collection for the games. Athletes were present and showed off the uniforms Team Canada will be wearing during the Games.

Inspired by the 50 year anniversary of the Canadian flag, Hudson's Bay's internal team of innovative and creative designers used the maple leaf as the starting point for the graphics showcased throughout the collection. Each of the 22 pieces is reminiscent of classic varsity sport; while at the same time are a modern nod towards the current athleisure trend in fashion.

The collection unites style and sport. Key elements woven throughout the collection include the bold and confident use of red, white, grey and black and modernized maple leaf, shown either outlined or solid with a strong Canada wordmark, designed in a font inspired by an oval athletic track. It captures a contemporary and modern fashion feel and hightlights the essence of Canada's strong and distinguishing personality.

The collection, priced from $30 - $140, for men's, women's and children's apparel and accessories, is available now to purchase in stores and on

What do you guys think of them? What's your fav item? I better go pick up some pieces before they sell out : )
