Happy Friday, Babes! There’s honestly not much to share with you all today except that Edmonton is really cold right now. I’m talking, the hairs on your head turn white as soon as you step outside cold. So, I decided that I needed to go back to a warmer time like when I designed the most gorgeous editorial dedicated to my hero Frida Kahlo! I can only hope you dolls will love it as much as I do. Until I can show you guys the big reveal I figured I would feast your eyes with some of the most beautiful paper ever. Here is a teenie tiny sneak peek of the gorgeous stationary that my lovely & incredibly talented friend Cass Deller designed. These were just a few of the pics I snapped from my iphone. Wait till you babes see the film scans from my girl Justine Milton. They are all kinds of amazing! What are you dolls up to this weekend? I’m about to turn off the social media for the weekend and binge on some bollywood movies and enjoy this cold but still beautiful day with my juju. Happy Friday, beauties

Birds & Honey Editorial: Frida Kahlo

Sep 5 , 2014

Magdalena Carmen Frieda Kahlo y Calderón, better known as Frida Kahlo has always been an inspiration to me. Ever since I was a little girl I felt such a deep connection to her. Her eyes, her lips. I remember falling in love over and over again with her and her art. All those colours. All those colours and emotions she evoked. She was a revolutionary gal who liked to live in constant self expression, I believe this is most evident in her art, the way she dressed, and the way she carried herself. She basically never gave two ***bleeps*** what anyone thought of her. For the past few months I have been immersed in a project that is so near and dear to my heart because it is my own little tribute to this hero of mine and in a few days I get to see it come to life. I can’t wait to share more with you babes. but, in the mean time, here is a little snippet of my door that ultimately turned into my real life pinterest board xoxo moni

My Ode to September….

Sep 1 , 2014

Jan 2014 Shoot-126
September. You are my favourite month of the year babe. I welcome you with big open arms every year because you are the month that rocks my world in all the right ways. I know you guys are like “whoa, whats with this girl and September? so here it goes. r e a s o n [1] September is oh soooooo special because it’s the month where I got to marry my boo! r e a s o n [2] September is the month when all the leaves start to fall and the air gets a little brisk which means I can start wearing cute sweaters and hats again and, who am I kidding? I live in Edmonton and we basically have snow 8 months out of the year so realistically I can always wear cute sweaters here but the sweater collection is awesome this time of year. r e a s o n [3] September also happens to be the month where my crazy wedding season hits the brakes and I start to have some kind of semblance of a life again :P cheers to all of my brotha’s in sista’s in this industry who have killed it this year with all the peonies, blood, sweat and tears. We are all due for a little break and I can’t wait to enjoy a little down time with you babes!!! xoxo moni
