....Although not a traditional resolution its simple, clear and sums up my focus going into 2011
To be fair I don't think I'd be able to recognize 99% of you if I walked pass you on the street.. but that wont stop me from wishing you & yours all the best in the New Year, regardless of what your into keep it 100 give it 100...and you'll be fine. Happy New Year Toronto. Happy New Year World.

London, England!

Only had 6 days in London so I did the best I could to see as much of the city as possible.. my days were usually spoken for with work & meetings but in my free time I managed to make it out to a few restos, pubs and tourist attractions. few photos of my trip below.
Stayed at the new eco friendly hotel Rafayel that overlooks the River Thames.. highly Recommend checking their rates if your hunting for places to stay in London. Shot of the Lobby.
they put me up on the 7th Floor, beautiful room - no complaints
standard hotel bedroom shot
after doing a bit of travelling this year I've really started to pay attention & appreciate the little details some hotels offer -things like a good assortment of mags in your room can be super helpful when your trying to get acquainted in a new city.
standard double decker bus picture... just one of those things you gotta take a picture of when your in London.
didn't' have much spare time but got a chance to visit Westfeild mall - Massive mall with standard mall stores..so it just takes way longer to get everywhere.fun.
apparently I should have got an "Oyster Card"?? Rookie mistake.. this worked just fine though
Platform photo
"Mind the gap mate!"
Incredibly efficient transit system. light years ahead of what we have in Toronto.. (probably light years ahead of whats available in most cities around world.)
wasn't prepared or this..........?
this vue on my daily walk to breakfast.. London's famous waterway. River Thames.
Hotel bar/My nightly getaway
got a few more touristy photo's I might post another time...
peace for now,


DJ Lissa Monet Photoshoot

This past Friday I was asked by Lissa to work with her team on the styling and overall vision for her shoot with Photographer Dwayne Evans. I obviously said yes!!!!
As soon as I got there I met with the stylists that were already there we exchanged ideas/clothes/accessories and came up with some amazing concepts.
I of course don't know how to keep my mouth shut so you know I was loud and outspoken about every single vision I had for Lissa, from bubble gum shots to how she should wear her pants.
Let's just say I can't wait for the final pix to come out because I know for a fact that we KILT (yes I said kilt) IT!
Please don't mind the quality of the pix as they are all taken with my Blackberry.

Thank you to Lissa for the amazing opportunity, for trusting my visions, to all the amazing people I met that night, Wing Machine and the non stop laughter we all shared.
We shall work together again soon !

Relationships: How To Get His Attention & Keep It!

I received an interesting email in my inbox from a reader this morning and I wanted to share my thoughts with you. Now, please note that I have never claimed to be a relationship guru - but one thing I can do is speak from personal experiences and only hope that my advice speaks to someone watching. I replied to this young lady as best as I could, let me know if you agree!

One more thing ladies... (always remember) You hold all of the power! Before you even open your mouth, batt your eyes or spread your legs. In a relationship of any kind, you have the ability to choose how you want to be treated, whether you're a hoe or a wifey-type. You can't blame anyone but yourself! Pauleanna p.s.

Relationships: How to find the right kind of love ...

This video doesn't need much of an explanation. However, if you take one thing away from this post, it should be: to pursue relationships of substance. I've witnessed the trend of most women jumping into relations with men because of their "window dressings" and they often wonder why the courtship didn't last longer than a few days or weeks! Ladies it's not rocket science. A relationship is a marathon not a sprint- it takes time to build a real connection with someone. So whenever you see a man who is drop dead sexy, rocks the flyest shit and has money to blow, ask him, what else he can bring to the table.

Thanks for showing so much love on my last post, I'll keep the goodness coming.



p.s.. Meet me here every Saturday for more of my thoughts about sex, love and everything in between! ox
