AIR MAX MONTH

We are only three months into 2018 and the sneaker releases thus far have been pretty friggin exciting! While NIKE has made several announcements regarding the efforts that are being made to bring more sneaker options, styles and retail opportunities for women, I have already had the chance to get my hands on some of my favorite releases. I am also in the midst of packing for something super exciting and I can't wait to share my future plans for this next chapter of this little thing called LIFE.

Peep my new Air Max 180s from the 'Ultramarine' pack, and my WMNS Air Max 98 from the 'Gundam' pack. I'm in LUV. Praying I get my hands on the Sean Wotherspoon AM 97/1 that are expected to drop via a general release on Air Max Day 2018 - March 26th.

All-Star 2016

As the 2016 NBA All-Star weekend makes its way to Toronto, there are a number of ways you can get involved in all the excitement. Scheduled to take place February 12 to 14th, the city is being transformed into a hub for sports fans, sneakerheads and media, alike. While tickets to official NBA events will cost you, there are alternative options that will give you a taste of the experience without the hefty price tag. 

With the help of NIKE, Livestock on Spadina has been transformed into a Pop Up shop that will be featuring the new Air Force 1. Other releases, including the tech knit and All-Star apparel, will also be made available throughout the week.

The Pop Up includes Flynit inspired fixtures and displays, tech knit apparel wall displays, custom light boxes, and a custom city scape of Toronto - all relating to the history and different elements that have either inspired, or been associated with the AF1 throughout the silhouettes storied history and evolution. The jewel of the build out is a display case full of samples and exclusive AF1’s shipped out straight from the vaults at Nike HQ in Oregon.

The technological advancements in design can be seen from 1982 - 2015, including the first use of woven uppers, the first use of laser on the exterior, vac tech, lunarlon, luxury premium materials and handmade craftsmanship. Some featured iconic sneakers include the luxurious italian leathered lows, steel toe’d Swat team hi’s, Rasheed Wallace Sheedman’s, Inside out leather midsoled AF1’s, Jordan Hybrids, Foamposite Hybrids, to Ricardo Tisci hi’s and Acronym zippered lows

If you are in the city, please make sure to stop by the shop at 116 Spadina unit G1 while the temporary build out is up. | http://deadstock.ca

It should come to no surprise that NIKE is going to be leaving a huge footprint in Toronto. In anticipation of the weekend events, the public will have the opportunity to sign-up for different events, beginning February 11th. A map of the locations can be found, here

Reserve your spot and visit SNKRSEXPRESS, play on the Jordan Brand Court or join an Open Run.

For those looking to take part in some of the hottest events, a list of nightclubs will be featuring 4AM last call and special guests throughout the weekend.

YESJULZ will be hosting a number of events, including the exclusive Black and Gold Collection launch event alongside GETATKAT and JACFLASH on February 9th, and 1AMVIBES at Ballet on Ossington, later that evening.

You can find Jazz Cartier at 2016 launch of BUTTER, from 3-9pm on the 13th of February.

The 2016 All-Star Game is set to go down on Sunday, February 14th, 2016 at the Air Canada Centre. The full weekend schedule can be found here

Goodies

I think it's safe to say that on top of making new memories, spending time with family and eating heaps of yummy food, I was spoiled rotten over the holidays. Christmas has always been a favorite holiday of mine as it feels like the only time of year when everyone can actually find time to get together. This year I spent time at home but in the past we've also done it in the islands - so weird waking up to a tropical climate mixed with decorated trees and a fake Santa. 

After investing in a new DSLR earlier this year, I realized I have everything I could ever possibly want or ask for. My family were too generous this year but it always goes a long way - my friends spoiled me too. Becca surprised me with tickets to a Raptors game in January and I was thrilled! I swear it's more of a gift I would have got for her, but there's no one else I'd rather go with.   

The holidays are hectic and NYE is right around the corner. In light of my trip to Saint Lucia on the 2nd, a bunch of us girls have agreed to go out for dinner and drinks and then kick it at home. #noboysallowed .. Fast forward to the 7th of January and I'll be flying around volcanoes and lounging on the beach for my birthdate!!! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world and I can't wait to start off my year on a clear and positive note.  Create your own headlines, don't write them for others. In 2016 I want to stay extremely focused. With that being said, I've made the decision to emphasize my commitment to fitness and getting in tune with my body and mind. I've never been a fan of the traditional way of working out (at the gym) but love taking classes, trying new things at home, and doing Hot Yoga. I wonder if I would ever have it in me to work out with the Nike Training Club? I've been looking into their training classes/schedule that you can sign up for, here. What do you think? Comment below if you're ever attended as a beginner. 

Getting back on track... NEW GOODIES! Instead of spending money on things I don't need, I decided go all out on new NIKE gear. I scored on a dope sports bra from the Bay, two pairs of tech fleece pants, a pair of black leggings, two pairs of kicks, and a tech fleece sweater. I was looking for the Nike Flash Tech pants everywhere because they are only available in men's so I had to find a small - thanks, EXCLUCITY. I also picked up a few things from the Urban Outfitters FILA collection. In other words, I'm heaps excited to rock my new gear as we finally have snow in Toronto! And I think I'm going to invest in a GO PRO. Thoughts? 

Did you get spoiled over the holidays? XO

New kicks

I came across the NIKE women's Air Max 90 Look of City pack online and was sold on the Viola's until I tried them on. They were a little much - I'm not a huge fan of colour but it doesn't hurt. This pair is from the Ultra Essential collection and they reminded me of my Jordan Infrared 6s that I rarely take out of the box. To be brutally honest, I'm not a huge fan of the Jordans but really appreciated the colour way. Basic and black. Although in this case I was definitely drawn to the bright red. 

I can't wait to rock these before winter hits the 6.
