So- I've finally begun to write in the pages of this much anticipated Parisian virtual journal. It does seem fitting it would be tucked away in a bistro style café on a rainy Parisian day consuming what I hate to admit has become copious amounts of croissants. Or- as the Parisians would say "Chocolat du Pain"

As the days grow shorter here as winter approaches my hot summer nights in Italy seem to dwindle farther into the back compartments of my memory. Par example- my hot Italian romance with the muscular descendant of a Roman God. As much as I am consumed by the sheer thrill of living in the city I've only dreamt about since I could walk I am in fact a little love sick for Italia... But seriously- who WOULDN'T BE!? Hot Italian nights with a sexy Roman guy who proposes his ring to you on your last night in Rome in hopes you won't forget him... 

Lets be honest girls- this doesn't happen everyday so I'd say when it does you may as well bask in the delicious feelings the memory offers you for as long as possible. Which is exactly what I'm doing with what seems to be quickly becoming an overload of french wine and carbohydrates.

Welcome to the new reinvention of and With my recent move to Paris, France I am inviting you on my journey of life, love and style in Paris by reading my new blog 'From Masochism to Macaroons' ... 

This is not only a reinvention of my online presence but a true makeover of my life and outlook on love, art, fashion and lifestyle. 

And so it goes... with wanderlust, a baguette and a terrible French accent.

wild tigers I have known

I'm trying to build a sill to slow down the time... 
Sometimes when there are so many ideas, dreams, concerns, fears and hesitations flitting and floating around in your mind it's hard to write them down. Atleast that is what I find... I feel like for what has felt like forever now these feelings and moments have gone unwritten. But they deserve to be written. These ideas need to be worked out on paper and the fears and moments you are afraid to revisit need to be expressed in another form other than the holding tank of your mind. Be kind to yourself and don't clutter and bog down your mind with the wildness. The sanctuary of your mind deserves zen white clean lines and tremendous amounts of open space...

Water... the lifeblood of our mother earth. Her calmness envelopes us in relaxation, meditation and stirs our emotions when needed. I have needed to take time by the water and hope to again soon. I breathe easier and become instantly flooded with inspiration at the sight of all those sparking diamonds...

It has been a while since my last post. Looking forward to sunny mornings, warmth and sun... Hot coffee, painted toe nails and freshly brewed coffee. These are all good things

It has been far too long since my last post. And it has become fairly apparent to me that this past fall and winter I was locked into a state where I wasn't fully myself. I was a delicate frail version of what someone else wanted me to be... Now as the snow is melting and my wounds are beginning to heal I feel confident that I am finally being set free from what was pinning me down.. And I am ready to show the world what I am really here to offer.. 

"I am a huge fan of men. I want them to succeed in every way, but I know many get lost somewhere between talking and doing, insecurity leading to inaction. And when it comes to the relationships between men and women, everything in this entire article can be summed up in the first sentence:

"There is nothing hotter than a man who actualizes his potential."

Let me say that again…

"There is nothing hotter than a man who actualizes his potential."

Seriously, that's it. Step into your role as King of your own life and you will find a Queen if that is what you seek. It's that simple."

A man with a mind and the ability to FEEL and articulate his emotions is the SEXIEST MAN ALIVE. A man who can self reflect and see a greater reality beyond himself is AWAKE. A man with an emotionally intelligent mind has vision, ideas, dreams, ambition, and drive. These desires come from his heart and less from his head. A man with a mind is far more likely to be reasonable and intriguing. A man who talks and thinks, and wants to unravel and unearth things is magnetic and intoxicating to listen to. I am not talking about your average intellect here. I am talking about 
3rd eye wisdom here.

REALIZING... as a young woman nearing twenty in two weeks.... completely confused and dreary about my personal relationships and professional goals in life- one thing is clear.... Personal ruin reminds to remember my loves in life... PAINTING & FIBRES!! In this personal metaphorical retreat I am embarking on within the next few weeks I plan to totally re-envelope myself in my love of fibre and rediscover my chosen path in life, which is to create art in whichever form it presents itself..... In these moments I finally will be able to adopt the label which I have needed for so so so so long- "to date ones self". Its time to love myself, and enter into a relationship with self.  

In this entry I wanted to include some images from En avril, a Montréal based Fibres/Art/Textiles group and community that showcases some beautiful work in and around the city. feast your eyes...

Fall is upon us in Montréal and inspiration is finally being stirred within me again. Its clear this is the case as my last blog post was in April.. Summer passed subtly with ease but little passion. Its only now as the air is starting to feel crisp and my wants and desires in life are becoming more clear to me that I am feeling inspired to be a Concordia painting major again and hopeful for the relationships that are beginning to tail behind me. 
For the first time ever I am feeling open to exploring other avenues within the realm of the arts. My courses this fall term consist of a painting studio, a lecture and tutorial in visual and performing arts in Canada and an advanced sculptural papermaking studio class within the Fibres department.  I was very lucky to be offered the renewal of my scholarship for the 2013/14 school year. However in order to accept, I must be enrolled in more courses succeeding "full time status". As a student trying to fulfill my creative goals and working every half day at Sekure Cost Review as a merchant broker I felt pressured at the thought of adding more to my plate. I knew adding another Studio course to my plate would overwhelm me completely and another lecture and tutorial- god I cannot even think of more papers to write. As an undergraduate in the fine arts program though I knew I had options to take electives within other disciplines. The thought of dance came to mind. For the past 6 months I have had this ever growing curiosity to explore my physical boundaries with artistic expression. The thought of approaching movement with ones body to create art. That image is so romanticized for me and secretly I would love nothing more than to move on a stage with one collective purpose.

I need to D A N C E.
