OOTW: February 2017
Outfit of the Week
Denim Shirt: American Rag |  Jeans: River Island | Boots: Dr. Martens

The bleached ombre denim trend is really taking off this season. I’ve been checking out all the latest NYFW street style features, and everyone is jumping in on the fun. I know for myself, I like wearing black with my denim pieces. So, the outfit shown above is a perfect example. The bleached denim shirt goes perfectly with the solid color tee, distressed jeans, and patent leather boots, right? So, how do you feel about this particular look?

Big Brother Canada 5: Week One

March 20, 2017

Filed Under : Big Brother - Lifestyle

The BBCAN Odyssey has officially launched into deep space. For three months, our houseguests will compete in a series of competitions to win the ultimate grand prize. Before we dive in to the premiere, take a look at my cast assessment if you haven’t done so already.

The House

Before the first group of houseguest enter, host Arisa Cox is back with our live audience to show off the newly renovated Big Brother house. The house itself looks straight out of a science fiction movie, equipped with space and time related furniture. For instance, our houseguests are sleeping in a hibernation pod, with a solar system theme. Sounds trippy, right?

The Newbies Enter

After the house tour, Arisa introduces us to the first group of houseguests. Dillon, Dre, Mark, and Jackie are up first. Without any hesitation, the four houseguests enter the house like a flock of birds, ready to embark on their new journey.

The second group, consisting of Emily, Karen, Demetri, and William follow shortly after.

The Veterans Enter

Before the newbies, get too acquainted with each other, they interrupted by a new houseguest entering every couple of minutes. Ika Wong from Season 2 makes her way into the BBCAN Odyssey first. With fear in their eyes, the new houseguests greet Ika with joyful cheers. Shortly after, the houseguests are greeted by other returning players including Kevin (Season 3), Dallas (Season 4), and Neda (Season 2). As Neda enters, you can tell she is ready to play the game right away, especially with her warm greeting from Ika. The next group of veterans to enter the BBCAN Odyssey includes Sindy (Season 3), Bruno (Season 3), and Cassandra (Season 4).

Of course they save the best for last (not literally) with Gary closing out for the veterans. As expected, Gary enters the house like he owns it, greeting each houseguest. I found it really interesting that he whispered to Sindy that he wanted to work with her right away. Based on her lukewarm response, you would think Sindy would be the last person anyone wants to put up with.

Head of Household

The houseguests are paired up randomly (The newbies were paired up with a veteran) for the HoH challenge. This was an endurance style competition where the paired houseguests hold on to each other (One houseguest is harnessed by a cable while the other is holding on to his or her partner), while being suspended above the ground. As time goes on, the cable is extended more. When one person drops, both members of that team are eliminated. The last team standing wins. The Pairs are as follows: Ika and Dre, Neda and William, Kevin and Demetres, Karen and Sindy, Dallas and Mark, Bruno and Dillon, Emily and Gary, Jackie and Cassandra.

One by one, each pair begins to drop like flies, leaving Ika and Dre to face off against Karen and SIndy. After a few minutes of deal making, Ika and Dre drop, allowing Karen and Sindy to take home the win. The pair decide and let Karen take the complete reign of HoH for the week. Karen as HoH means trouble for some of our big threats in the game.

Nominations

As a newbie, you would think Karen would immediately go after two of the veterans. Luckily, she is not biased with her power. Karen has her eyes set on physical threats, regardless of newbie or veteran status. She has her eyes set on nominating Kevin, Mark, Dillon, and Demetres. After conversing with Sindy, Karen nominates Demetres and Mark for eviction, keeping the veterans safe for the time being. As expected, the newbies are questioning Karen’s true motives by not putting up any veterans.

Power of Veto Competition

Karen, Mark, Demetres along with Bruno, Ika, and Kevin were selected to participate in this week’s veto challenge. Remember, the winner of the power of veto can alter the Head of Household’s nominations, by taking one person off the chopping block.

For this week’s challenge entitled, “We Want Veto,” the six houseguest will race through a tar pit to collect tiles of historic emojis to match the paintings found on their cave walls. Once the matching tiles is brought back, each houseguest will use the letters to solve the mystery phrase. The first houseguest used to solve the phrase will win the power of veto. After a close race with Mark, Bruno won the power of veto.

Power of Veto Ceremony

Since Bruno was in no real danger this week, he decided not use the power of veto. This solidified Demetres and Mark as the final nominees for the week.

Live Eviction

In a seven to six vote, Mark was the first houseguest evicted this season. Based on the vote, the houseguests were very conflicted with their decision. Although Mark is all around a nice guy, he is a huge threat. If he would have stayed longer, Mark would have been a shoo-in for a potential showmance and final four deal. So, I can see why he was targeted early targeted.

Shockwave Time Wrap


Source: Global TV

Before closing out, Arisa introduced Canada’s Time Warp twist. For twenty fours, viewers have been voting for to transport one houseguest into the “future.” This houseguest will be safe until jury and can’t be nominated until the jury begins. However, this houseguest is allowed to compete in competitions. The houseguest that Canada decided to keep safe until jury was, Neda! No brainer there! Neda, by far, is one of the most popular housegeusts to play BBCAN to date. So, it’s no surprise that the viewers would want to keep her safe. I’m really excited to see how this twist plays out, especially since Neda is a huge gamer.

Predictions

Depending on who wins HoH this week, I think another newbie will bite the dust. Out of the seven left in the game, I can see Dillon, Jackie, Emily, or Bruno getting taken out. Votes aside, Demetres is on the good side of many veterans. Since he has this random beef with Dillon, I can see him projecting his opinions on everyone else. Jackie and Emily will only go home if they are in a bad pawn scenario. Pawns are equally disposable in Big Brother, and I can see the house voting to evict one of these ladies if they are sitting next to a more social houseguest. Bruno is the only vet I am worried about this week. He hasn’t done anything too major, but I can see why someone would want to get him out early. I honestly don’t see a veteran leaving the house until week three or four though.

Secondhand Sunday

What I’m Wearing
Flannel Shirt: Thrift Store | Coat: Old Navy | Joggers: ASOS | Shoes: Vans

Today, I kept it simple with this outfit by pairing a thrifted flannel shirt with my favorite drop crotch joggers. In the last couple of months, I’ve worn this flannel shirt quite a few times, but never with joggers. It’s a good look though, right? Before I head out, let’s discuss my wool coat. Purchased from Old Navy as a Christmas gift, this coat looks great either dressed up or down. As you can see, I used this coat to dress up my outfit. So, how do you feel about this particular look? Feel free to share below.

Catch you tomorrow,

WIWT: Denim Overalls

March 15, 2017

Filed Under : Outfits - WIWT








What I’m Wearing
Overalls: Forever21 | Shirt: Ralph Lauren | Blazer: Forever21 | Boots: ASOS

Denim overalls and a velvet blazer make for an interesting optical illusion. As you can see, I’m wearing overalls. Duh! However, once the jacket is buttoned, the overalls turn into simple pair of jeans. Not literally, but you get what I’m saying.  In terms of inspiration, I give full credit to my friend Seonne. I actually borrowed one of her dapper looks. Seonne’s original outfit included a pair of overalls, a button-up, necktie, and loafers. Keeping it simple, I went with my newly purchased patent leather chelsea boots instead. For under $40, these boots are great for inclement weather. The rain drops just slide right off. So, how do you feel about this particular look? Feel free and share in the comments section below.
