Spring has finally sprung. Even though it has just started, I’m already planning what I might be doing this summer. This summer, I reach a huge milestone (I can’t reveal just yet) in my life and I am planning on celebrating it with a bang. Because it is not finalized yet, I do not want to give out too much details about it.

Today, I’m back with a brand new blog post and as you may see, I’m sporting yet another all black outfit – sorry guys, it’s hard to break the habit, ha. Trust me, I’m trying my very best to incorporate more colours into my wardrobe. As the weather is starting to improve over here in Toronto, I thought to myself why not make the best out of it and do a little experiment that might lead into something big and life changing for me. Having been watching a lot of YouTube videos lately, it gave me the inspirations that I needed to start vlogging and getting rid of my fear of people staring at me. Last weekend, I started vlogging and I’m not going to lie it was a little bit awkward and weird. People were staring at me, thinking I might be a lunatic, LOL.

I think for me, it’s just a matter of challenging myself and pushing the boundaries. I need to be prepared before I can actually release my first vlog. For example, the location of this shoot is actually located near a touristy area; many people were walking by and stared at me while I was taking photos of myself. 

I thought this would be a cool location to shoot because it gives off that edgy and industrial vibes. This blog post is actually in partnership with GUESS. To kick off spring in style, GUESS sent me a pair of sneakers from their spring 2017 collection. The sneakers feature a laceless design with perforated details all over them. They’re not only comfortable, but also light, which makes walking much more fun. The sleek and minimal design is great for casual outings, or if you’re feeling a little bit edgier, throw on your biker jacket, ripped jeans and these sneakers and you’re good to go!
