** Quelle heure est-il? ** (monsieur loup…)
DAYLIGHT SAVINGS baby !
More sun, a few days of adjusting and feeling exhausted, and maybe even being unfashionably late, but all in the name of longer days! yay!
Having more vitamin D in your day, makes you happier, more productive AND is a reminder that TIME (really) IS MONEY! It’s a great reminder to spend it wisely and not to forget to DO YOU!

** #hashtags … and such **
The English language is always evolving. HASHTAG _________ (fill in the adjective). In a time where saying a hashtag or typing one or a sentence explains it all in a quirky way.

The goal is to raise awareness of how to stop bullying and to empower people, both adults and children. Some of you know my story when I was in grade school, and others don’t. Either way, bullying is bullshit and it needs to stop. Join the conversation.#letstalkaboutit

It’s a classic story of boy meets girl—or in the case of Amy and Kona, Toronto based fashion blogger (and occasional Roots model) meets financier. It was love at first sight when the two first met six years ago and the rest, as they say, was history. We spent the morning in their Toronto town-home, touring their collection of original artwork they painted together, and learning just how important it is to keep the romance alive.
How did you start blogging?
Working in an investment bank didn’t give me the creative outlet that I wanted, so I started blogging about my personal style—it became a creative outlet for me. I eventually want to style full-time.
What is your Love story? How did you meet?
K: We met at work six years ago. And we went out for a drink… and that was that.
A: The rest is history [Laughs].
Amy, what do you love about Kona?
A: His honesty. He is very straightforward. I tend to sugarcoat details and he tells it like it is. I appreciate that so much. And, he really, really loves me [Laughs].
He makes me feel so happy – I am the happiest. We have been together for 6+ years, and I am obsessed with him. That is my word—obsessed. And he just has to deal with it [Laughs].
I also like that we aren’t comfortable with each other yet. We both still try very hard, emotionally and physically. We haven’t gotten to a place where we’ve stopped making an effort. We like to give small gifts and randomly appreciate each other. [Giggles]
Kona, what do you love about Amy?
We have never gotten bored with each other. We keep each other on our toes, and always have fun and laugh. She’s always there for me.
Kona, where are you from?
K: I am from Paris
A: My parents are Indian from Africa.
It’s a very Canadian story to be from different places and to come together in this cultural mosaic. Having such diverse backgrounds, what does being Canadian mean to you?
K: I was born in Tanzania but I grew up in Paris. I consider myself more French than Tanzanian. I came to Canada to go to McGill University. Canada, opposed to French society, is a much easier and simpler society. I noticed how friendly people are in Canada—I found it awkward at first, and then I got used to it. [Laughs] People are open to cultural differences in Canada.
A: I grew up in Rexdale [in the GTA]. My high-school and grade school were very diverse. Everyone was so different and had such diverse stories and cultures—that is Canada, celebrating different cultures and accepting each other.
