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
