We all know that Madonna is even better remixed when it comes to shaking our booties at the club. Here are a few remixes of her 2nd single “Girl Gone Wild“. Of all the tracks in the new MDNA album, “Gang Bang” and “Girl Gone Wild” are my two most favorites.

Jean Paul Gaultier is Coke‘s new Creative Director, taking over last year’s Karl Lagerfeld. With his new role there will be limited-edition bottles, cans and retail displays.

In a series of three odd but brilliant videos titled, “The Serial Designer“, Gaultier plays a saviour to marionette women in fashion emergencies.

The video below is titled, Episode 1: The Serial Designer Rocks Out, where the fashion genius transforms rock chick Irene from fashion hazard column inches to the hottest headline. Following that one, there are other videos you should check out. Enjoy!

H&M has been teaming up with bloggers to get them to pick and style their favorite pieces from the Divided collection.

I think it’s a great idea to be able to show non-model people how to dress & style certain pieces and translate them from runway to street.

The hat-loving British blogger Carrie from wishwishwish.net is trying out some cute and sassy looks using the H&M/Divided Collection. Check out the video on the next part of the post.

Earlier this month was my birthday… my first birthday celebration in Toronto. There were also a few friend’s birthdays on the same month so a lot of social things happened. So here’s what went down and some Toronto spots to check out.

Feb. 13 – Monday was my friend’s birthday and we had dinner at a place called 416 Snack Bar which is just North of Queen Street West on 181 Bathurst. It’s a small place but it didn’t take us long to get a table. The food was great, they’re more like tapas which included steamed buns, Korean fried chicken, steak tartare and etc.

Feb. 14 – Single me spent Valentine’s day having Lychee martinis at my place with one of my friends. It was so nice of him to keep me company making sure I wasn’t alone. Tipsy Tuesday!

Top 5 Cool Stuff OTM

In: Charge It, Gadgets & Tech, Redd

I haven’t done a Top 5 Cool list in a while so I thought I’d share with you my current obsessions all of which are related to iDevices from iPhone skins to conductive glove pins to access your devices in the dead of Winter.

5. Magnus Magnetic iPad Stand

I know how hard it is to find a simple yet cool laptop case/bag (I haven’t found still) so imagine how hard it is to find a sleek and simple iPad stand. The Magnus iPad stand is a simple and uncluttered design that uses magnets to hold onto your iPad2 creating a stand that is barely there. GET IT

I haven’t updated you guys since I moved and thought this would be a good time to let you know where I’m at. I’ve adjusted really well to life in my new city and I am enjoying it. Many people tried to discourage me about moving East because it was cold, so far it’s been great. Yes it is cold but the sun is still shining. It really wasn’t the cold I disliked, it was the constant rain and gloom of the West Coast I didn’t care for.

For 7 months having not noticed, I was stuck in a rut of going to work, going to the gym and staying in pretty much every week night and weekends. I hadn’t realized til recently that I haven’t put any effort in making new friends and building a new support group. I didn’t think I’d ever feel uprooted but it hit me eventually. I miss my friends and I miss that close relationship I had with them. Although I know a lot of people in Toronto from past friendships, these are not exactly the same people I would associate with given that I am now in a different place in my life and so are they. I realized that I had to meet more like minded people that I can relate to and vice-versa. So for the new year, I decided I needed to make a conscious effort of building that support group around me.

Toronto Vintage: Leslieville

In: Charge It, Redd

I’ve been busy checking out Toronto’s many different neighbourhoods and I’ve quickly fallen in love with Leslieville. This east-end neighborhood is virtually untouched by large retail companies and instead littered with independent business owners from restaurants to cafes and clothing retailers to vintage furniture shops.

Since moving to Toronto, I’ve been slowly furnishing my place and have started looking at vintage decoration pieces to give my place a bit of character. A friend of mine introduced me to the many vintage furniture shops in Leslieville and instantly I was hooked. We were both saying that it was a good thing that Leslieville was a bit of a trek for us because if we were closer, we’d spend all our money on vintage finds.

Check out three stores I visited which had great vintage stuff at affordable prices.

My three favorite vintage shops after the jump.
