"I'm a problem
That'll never
Ever be solved
Never gave in
Never gave up
I'm the only thing I'm afraid of
And no matter what
You'll never take that from me
My reign is as far as your eyes can see"
-Amazing; Kanye West

He still creeps me out.. . ...

"I'd give up the sun for
the moon and the stars."


Another TV to get addicted to! I started to watch it when it came out in 2008 but school and work got so hectic I lost a couple episodes and never caught up, although I always saw people writing about it on Facebook and Twitter. I finally got caught up earlier this year and have been religiously watching every Sunday night. This show is so addicting, when it's over at the end, I get all mad and try to search through the rest of my Rogers channels for it lol.

It's getting so juicy! I love Sookie's character but hate her name LOL. Tara reminds me of my best friend Faten so her feisty attitude lol. I never really liked Bill Compton in the show, for some reason her never won over my heart. I always REALLY liked Sam, to me, he's like the Jacob Black of True Blood and obviously Bill would be the Edward Cullen. It's Eric who has won over my heart LOL. I'm always attracted to the bad boy in everything! Also, Alexander Skarsgard is just so damn beautiful!!!

Anyways, it's Sunday night and the show comes on at 9pm, I can't wait! This is the last episode before the Season Finale so you already know it's going to be juicy! TrueBlood > Twilight!!

Here's some Eric eye candy for all his admirers :)

I ♥ Brazen Hussy!!

This is another reason why I love Toronto so much! BRAZEN HUSSY!! I found about Brazen Hussy in the beginning of 2008 and completely fell in love with the designs of the clothes! They're cute, comfortable and vibrant, plus it's all at an affordable price. I love love LOVE their dresses and skirts and I'm also a big fan of their swimwear. The best part is, the designers and creators of this Toronto based clothing line are FROM TORONTO!! Michele and Kathleen Pedro own and operate this line and they're definitely very business savvy.

While on Facebook, a notification popped up showing their Fall/Winter 2009 Collection and I LOVE IT!! If you want to find out more about the girls, their clothes, the history and see pictures of the good, check out the website, Brazen♥Hussy, or check out their Facebook♥Page

Here are some of the pieces from the Fall/Winter collection that I will definitely be getting my hands on!!;

Apparently Ashton Kutcher produced it, we'll see if he can bring the goods, lol. but I love the main girl in it, she's gorgeous and the guy isn't bad either LOL

I don't care what anyone says, this show is going to be f*ckin' hilarious!!!!

...the real problem.

“..perhaps the real problem is that we don’t spend enough time imagining what we want and then doing the work to sustain that vision. That is one of the fundamental ways the corporate-capitalist system tames us: by robbing us of our time and flooding us in a sea of bureaucratic red tape, which we are told is a necessary evil for guaranteeing our organizational existence. We don’t have time to stop and collectively reflect on the implications of this-why are we so concerned with saving organizations if they are not fully able to truly address the root of the problems we face? Often something feels off, but we feel stuck because we don’t have time to imagine how we might do it differently. We are too busy being told how to market ourselves by pimping our communities’ poverty in proposals, selling “results” in reports and accounting for our finances in financial reviews”. -Adoja Florencia Jones de Almeida “Radical Social Change

...on that motivational tip... .. .these helped;

KiRK FRANKLiN & FRiENDS... I love this video, the vocals are amazing.

THE QUEEN!! Whitney Houston is THE Voice!! If you don't get goosebumps or are moved by the performance, you are HEARTLESS!!!!


I'm down for anything REMiX affiliated, related...blah blah. I've known the brains behind this project since High School and I'm proud to know them, ALL of them. What they're doing for this city is so remarkable and they go hard for our city.

To those reading, who don't know what REMiX is...The Remix Project,  is a United Nations award-winning National Crime Prevention program in Toronto. The program serves gifted but under-served and vulnerable young people across the GTA through courses fostering arts, cultural and life skills. As a result of its work, The Remix Project has helped to keep a number of young people off the streets and produced talented, newly motivated individuals. Over 110 graduates have been able to realize their creative and business potentials.

The Remix Project is a successful three-year-old program funded originally through a research and pilot grant by the National Crime Prevention Canada (NCPC)....BUT the NCPC funds research and pilot programs only , and The Remix Project's research component has ended. Although the NCPC believed the program was a success and would like to see it replicated in other cities, it was no longer able to continue funding. In addition, The Remix Project had to start looking for a new home come September 1st, because its current location will soon be transformed into condominium developments. With a $100,000 goal, The Remix Project set up a fundraising event to save the program. GIVE MONEY, MAKE CHANGE was a multi-faceted event including photography and visual arts installations, performances, a silent auction and a pledge-driven dance.
The event was a success and with the help of the city, REMiX raised over $30,000!!
Fast forward to the end of summer and after another successful semester with talented young individuals, REMiX is moving to their new home in November. Below is a video, copped from MadeInTheCity. It features 1LoveTO's blogger Bryan Brock at the end talking about REMiX.

This video features Gavin Sheppard inviting the public, family and friends to MadeInTheCity, which is their introduction to the city at Chic Chinoise Lounge, located on 214 King Street W. They invite all aspiring, ambitious and driven individuals looking to network with like-minded personalities to share the evening with them. The atmosphere will be established by the enticing sounds of DJ Lissa Monet (2009 Stylus award winner).  There will also be a special guest DJ who will be taking you straight through the remainder of the evening even after the bar closes.

This post ain't a booost at all, just spreading the good word about some dope peoples.

Rome&Julez :: Act iii, Scene ii

Give me my Romeo.
And when I shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun. 

To My Jacob Black

I want to be a lost poem in a stranger's coat pocket, that conveys the importance of you.

To assure you of my desire, to assure you of dreams.

I want all the possibilities of you in writing.

I want to give you your reflection, I want your eyes on me, I want to travel to the lightness with you and stay there, and I want everything before you...

...everything before you to follow us like a trail behind me.

I want never to say goodbye to you, even on the street corner or the phone.

I want, I want so much... I'm breathless.

I want to put my power into a poem to burn a hole in your pocket so I can sew it.

I want my words to scream through you. I want the poem not to mean that much.

And I want to contradict myself by accident, and for you to know what I mean.

I want you to be distant and for me to feel you close, I want endless days when it's day and... nighttime never to end when it's night.

I want all the seasons in one day. I want the sun to set before us and come up in front of us.

I want water up to our waists and to be drenched by the rain, up to our ankles with holes in our shoes...

...with holes in our shoes. I want to think your thoughts because they're mine.

I want only what's urgent with you.
I want to get in the way of the barriers and I want you to be a tough guy when you're supposed to,
like you do already...

...when you're supposed to. And I want you to be tender, like you do already.

And I want us to have met for a reason and I want that reason to be important.

And I want it to be bigger than us, I want it to take over us.

I want to forget. I want to remember us.

And when I tell you I love you I'm hoping you'll say it back because you truly feel it in that instant because our 'love' will be the product of our friendship that was set on fire by the mounting sparks between us.

And I want your smile always, and your grimaces too.

I want your scar on my lips, and I want your disappointments in my heart.

I want your strength in my soul and I want your soul in my eyes.

I want to believe everything you say, and I do.

And I want you to tell me what's best when I don't know.

And when you're lost I want to find you.

And when you're weary I want to give you steeples and cathedral thoughts and coliseum dreams.

I want to drag you from the darkness and kneel with you exhausted with the blinding light blaring on us...

...I want all of this and more, with you.

Deux jours à Paris

This is the monolouge from the last scene in one of my favourite films, 2 Days in Paris, I really love this movie - its a gem.

"It always fascinated me how people go from loving you madly to nothing at all, nothing. It hurts so much.

When I feel someone is going to leave me, I have a tendency to break up first before I get to hear the whole thing. Here it is. One more, one less. Another wasted love story.

I really love this one.

When I think that its over, that I'll never see him again like this... well yes, I'll bump into him, we'll meet our new boyfriend and girlfriend, act as if we had never been together, then we'll slowly think of each other less and less until we forget each other completely. Almost.

Always the same for me. Break up, break down. Drunk up, fool around. Meet one guy, then another, fuck around. Forget the one and only. Then after a few months of total emptiness start again to look for true love, desperately look everywhere and after two years of loneliness meet a new love and swear it is the one, until that one is gone as well.

There's a moment in life where you can't recover any more from another break-up. And even if this person bugs you sixty percent of the time, well you still can’t live without him. And even if he wakes you up every day by sneezing right in your face, well you love his sneezes more than anyone else's kisses.

I Am Beyond...

This really is feel-good fashion. I Am Beyond is a dope yoga brand. Recently, Beyond Yoga launched their limited edition "I Am Beyond Bags"  to benefit The Art of Elysium earlier this summer. The tote bags were created to raise awareness and support The Art of Elysium, which is a non-profit that encourages working actors, artists and musicians to share their craft with children living with serious medical conditions.

The tote bags were created by Beyond Yoga designer Jodi Guber and graffiti artist Andre Charles. You can choose from one of the 4 slogans: "I am beyond..." grateful, blessed, loved or lucky. If you don't want those sayings, you can create your own! Not feeling any of these? Create your own to reflect your personality like "I am beyond DRAMA" or "I am beyond HOPEFUL"). The possibilities are endless! Support a dope cause!

They're $65.00 and can be found at I Am Beyond

Favourite Movie - A Walk To Remember

I fell in love with this movie the first time I saw it back in 2002 with my best friends. The story is just captivating and I had a huge crush on Shane West at the time and I always loved Mandy Moore’s vocals. I really think this song made the movie, plus it also helps that Nicholas Sparks, one of my favourite authors wrote the story and whoever wrote the screenplay ALMOST got it on point. I think Mandy Moore was one of many singers who broke out into the movie world, but she actually did an amazing job and didn’t crash & burn like Mariah lol!

I Need These In My Life

...or I think EVERY GIRL needs these in her life, lol. Enjoy.

A Prayer for Suicide Angels, Suicide Survivors, and the Suicidal

This is a topic that really hits close to home, those who know me personally will know what I'm talking about. I'd like to believe that this is a topic that EVERYONE knows about and would somehow like to help. I believe that NO ONE should ever feel so alone, so helpless, so unwanted that they would want to take their own life. I understand what it feels like to live like this, what it feels like to be so alone and so upset over something you feel like you can't take the pain and that it will all be gone if you're gone.

Sometimes you want to scream until your lungs burst, begging to be free, yearning to explode out of your body, and suffering until the end. And all someone really wants is someone to take their hand and not let go. To me, suicide is a cry for help.

This is prayer for tortured souls who have committed suicide, those who have survived and those who are contemplating. I'd just like for everyone to know that we are ALL children of God and He created us to LIVE the gift of life that He gave us. Never take your life for granted.

Let us pray…

Lord Jesus Christ we ask that you help everyone who is suicidal.

Guide them so they may receive the help that they need.

Protect them.

Prevent them from dying by suicide.

We need them. We love them.

Let them feel our love, and your love, Lord Jesus.

Lord, we ask that you comfort the suicide survivors.

Remind them that they are very special people.

Remind them that they are heroes.

Fill their minds with beautiful memories of their suicide angels.

Provide them with everything that they need Lord.

Ease their pain.

Give them hope.

Give them comfort.

Give them guidance.

Help them heal.

And help them in every way possible.

Let them feel our love, and your love, Lord Jesus.

And let their suicide angels carry them on their wings when they are weary.

Lord, we pray for the suicide angels.

They are with you now, Lord, in Paradise.

These angels are among the highest angels in Heaven.

Their wings are magnificent and their beauty is beyond imagination.

Their love shines bright.

Embrace them, Lord Jesus, with your love.

And let their love continue to shine down upon us.


Do males like this actually exist? SMH.

Best Wedding Invitation EVER.

Rando-Dando // Juno*

Look, in my opinion the best thing you can do is find a person who loves you for exactly what you are. Good mood, bad mood, ugly, pretty, handsome, what-have-you. The right person is still going to think the sun shines out of your ass. That’s the kind of person that’s worth sticking with

(Mac MacGuff, Juno’s Dad)

Juno* Has My Heart.

So damn cute, if you haven't seen Juno, you've slept - no, you've HIBERNATED!!! Go. Watch. Now!!

You’re a part time lover and a full time friend
The monkey on you’re back is the latest trend
I don’t see what anyone can see,
In anyone else but you ♥

Here is the church and here is the steeple
We sure are cute for two ugly people
I don’t see what anyone can see,
In anyone else but you ♥

We both have shiny happy fits of rage
I want more fans, you want more stage
I don’t see what anyone can see,
In anyone else but you ♥

You are always trying to keep it real
I’m in love with how you feel
I don’t see what anyone can see,
In anyone else but you ♥

I kiss you on the brain in the shadow of a train
I kiss you all starry eyed, my body’s swinging from side to side
I don’t see what anyone can see,
In anyone else but you ♥

The pebbles forgive me, the trees forgive me
So why can’t, you forgive me?
I don’t see what anyone can see,
In anyone else but you ♥

Do do do do do do do doooo
Do do do do do do do doooo

I don’t see what anyone can see,
In anyone else but you ♥

Dear Life - As Told By William Nguyen

Will, or PhotoWill is such a beautiful soul and I love how he writes. He's so full of passion and has an honest lust for life. This is an entry from his blog, I read it and got goosebumps. If you see this Will, know that I admire you - for more than 5 reasons. Besos papi.

My Love Letter to ______.

There may be some things that may be wrong with you.
You’re not perfect and I know that.
You’re full of flaws and scars.
You’ve made me cry and have broken me into pieces…
…On several occasions.
Ive stayed up many nights thinking and wondering if I could continue this journey with you.
You’ve put me in some really fucked up situations that I wish I was never in.
But this is how it is between us.
But I'm not perfect either.
I've wronged you over and over again.
I've made a lot of bad choices.
But you’ve always given me another chance and showed me paths.
But it can't be perfect right?
How can it be?
But you’ve been good to me lately.
You makes me smile a lot nowadays..some things go wrong…but it has to eventually right?
That's the only way you know its real.
But I'll endure this.
Because I can.
Also because I want to.
Because in the end, the payoff will be grand.
And I know this.
I wouldn't want to be with anyone else.
I would never give this up, nor would I ever trade it for another.
There’s beauty in everything, we just need to see it.
And I see you.
I never want to part from you.
Can we stay here?
Who would have thought after all these years, you would have brought me here?
I don't even know how Ive come to deserve any of this.
I really don't.
Not even in dreams are you as beautiful as you are when I'm awake.
I promise to work hard and stay optimistic…
I just want you to see I'm really trying to make this work.
No matter how rough this gets, I'm going to keep on pushing because brighter days are just ahead.
The sun always rises no matter how dark the night has been.
It may rise less in our winters, but spring always follows.
I know of no such beauty more pure than yours.
