Runawaylove x Lookbookcookbook 3.0 and 4.0

Yes yes, this has become a regular thing. Lookbookcookbook creator and pro photographer Jessica Milan and I have a bond now, and that bond is our love for the deliciously scrumptious treats the lovely Jess makes with her own two hands! For those who are just tuning in, LBCB is an amazing food/fashion blog that I was given the chance to model for. I posted the two other looks I did for Jess back in the day and if you're interested, feel free to check them out here and here. I modelled with key lime cupcakes and an even better peanut butter chocolate banana pop. SO GOOD.

Because I've been quite the blog-slacker these past few months I forgot to post my most recent LBCB shots. I modelled Jess' crispy chocolate rice square and chocolate covered raisin clusters. I had a great time... as you can tell from my super smiley face haha.

In more recent news, Jess has asked me to style the next Lookbookcookbook photo-shoot  So stay tuned for that! I'll be styling the entire thing on my own and I'll be doing some more modelling as well. Should be a great time! Well, I'm off to eat some baked goods now, cause all this talk of chocolatey goodness is really getting to me. Time to get my oven working and hit up lookbookcookbook.com. LAYTAHS!

The Weather Girl...

In non-fashion related news, I did something funny recently.

Yesterday, Toronto had a little taste of Montreal-winter. It was cold and it snowed and Toronto had a melt down. Everyone freaked out, traffic was ridiculous and the weather was THE topic of conversation. It was -16ish, (baby food for a Montrealer like myself) and yes it was nasty and yes everyone had to pull out the parkas, mitts and beanies and yes it was uncomfortable but WHATEVER it's Canada. All this to say that once I made it through the storm** and got to the office (I work for the Ryersonian now woohoo! Final year internship!) I was pulled aside by the RyersonianTV manager and told that I had 15 minutes to prepare a script because I was the day's weather girl.

And the Weather Girl award goes to....anyone but Elayne.

AND THIS IS WHAT HAPPEND..... pure awkward elayne-style improv... how embarrassing. There are so many things wrong with this newscast. It's kinda really funny. Enjoy!

Camera caught my death stare. As usual.


Issey Miyake - Pleats Please? Yes Please!

In late November I was sent to the Issey Miyake launch party for the brand's new Spring/Summer 2013 fragrance, Pleats Please. The super exclusive press party was held in a gallery at the gorgeous Gardiner Museum on Queen's Park - a perfect location to unveil a fragrance that was designed not only to encompass beautiful scents, but fashion, dance, movement and geometry as well. Unlike the brand's original fragrance, which has a more nature-ish Japanese-raw-material scent, Pleats Please is young, sweet, and fun.

It's definitely targeted to a younger more free-spirited audience and after using it for the past few months, I must say, I really do like it. I've always been a more musky perfume person but Pleats Please and it's sweetness just caught hold of my heart strings. If you want to learn more about the Japanese fashion house visit their site. I urge you to read up on their pleated garments -- really really cool.

Anyway go to the Bay/Sephora and give Pleats Please a sniff. It's good stuff.

More about that launch party! The Issey Miyake PR girls are pretty freaking good at their job. Not only did they walk around in the Issey Miyake signature pleated kimonos (in gorgeous bright colours for S/S 2013) they were extremely sweet and had prepared an amazing dessert table! There were cupcakes, candies, and all sorts of fun things all in pink and orange (to match the fragrance's box colours)

Since I'm a huge baby and all-for free fashion stuff - especially when it's freaking cupcakes <33333 - I was all up in that dessert table. If it wasn't obvious that I was the youngest one there when I walked in, it was definitely obvious when the other fashion women noticed me sitting by the table, stuffing my little chinese food take-away box with all the goodies I could get my hands on. Yeah whatever. They're just jealous..

Oh, I almost forgot to mention... I killed their origami station! Check out my crane! Skillzzzz
