antique shopping with emmanuelle

hello friends!
did some antique shopping with Emmanuelle yesterday

Fur Coat - Forever 21
Cotton Ball Sweater - H&M
Boots - Joe Fresh
Denim Jeans - South Korean Market
Bag - Gifted

I was mistaken for a mannequin yesterday!
I was sitting {apparently quite still} waiting for Emmanuelle, when a woman in front of me gasped when I crossed my legs!
The poor thing though I was part of the store display 

hope you all had a wonderful Wednesday!
now that classes are over, I have much more spare time
{ for shopping, painting, working out, and blogging }
i'm going to try to post more often ... i'm so awful at staying consistent.

xoxo Cass


feeling sad looking rad { a memoir }

Hello Friends;

First Semester is DONE
My first term in the BFA has been extraordinary. Being surrounded by fellow artists is a wonderful feeling, I've been growing and learning in peculiar ways.
I gained so much insight into the fact that I know nothing about acting. What a feeling to have.
Night of Secrets; the first opportunity our class had to perform, was such a success! I can not wait to be on the stage again.

My outfits lately have been.... disappointing.
I honestly feel like such a slob { compared to my normal state of dress }, I'm consistently looking in the mirror, dissatisfied with what I see.
All of my courses require me to move for 3 hours a day...
So everyday is yoga pants day...
It's a daily struggle.
I have so many beautiful clothes just lying.. in my closet...

But I digress.


best Daiso finds! i've discovered eyebrow gel, false eyelashes, and mascara that are my new favourites!!!!

outfit for a theatre outing

the apartment.

My Vancouver hair salon! BANGTOWN is the shit... literally the best place ever omg

a very Miley hallowee'en
{ makeup / outfit post later.... maybe.. }

I've been going through a rough emotional time for a long while. I realize that when I look back onto previous posts, I mention this a lot. It's made it nearly impossible to blog. It's hard to not be overcome by sadness when you feel it so often. I apologize for the frequent ramblings, but this is my safe haven, my creative outlet.
I'm so grateful for my supportive friends and family who have been rubbing my back, giving me kisses, and buying me blue gatorade.

I performed a dance last week in class about someone who recently left me heartbroken. Dance is such a healthy outlet for all of my woes; I'm such a kinesthetic person, dancing releases built up tension. It is the best form of therapy.

I also indulge in additional creative outlets;
acting, singing {poorly}, painting,
& making playlists.

here's to you { asshole }; take a listen.

I HATE { immature, self-important, narcissistic } 
xoxo Cass


summertime shooting


 hello friends!

i haven't blogged in MONTHS 
{ my last spread was when I was just finishing up my first year. Now I'm well into my second!!! }
This summer was so wonderful. Healing. Growing. I shaved my head.
{ I've got a head-shaving video & an updated hair video & VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK BACKSTAGE PASS VIDEO in the works }

these photos are from an amazing shoot i did with Maria Denomme this summer back in Goderich. What an amazing opportunity to work with fellow young artists! We've been scheming some other collaborations that will be coming to you this winter! AH

{ check out her work HERE & HERE

....i'm better at keeping up with that stuff....

This year is already off to a great start. I'm acting again. I've met some beautiful people. My hair is hella cool. 
The adventures waiting are destined to be marvelous. I can feel it.
