However, before we get to the nitty gritty beauty bitty, S/Os to our pals over at Clean & Clear who have supported our love of all things wacky and all things Liz!  read more…

Becoming FKA Liz 101

What happens when you pair a hair ~~~artist~~~ with 2ft long extensions (and a head of hair to attach said extensions to)?

Enter our longterm obsession with FKA Twigs, and our longterm obsession with Liz Trinnear. With a little lot of help from our friends, we’ve *transformed* one girl (Liz) that we love so much into another girl (FKA Twigs) that we love so much. The results? A fun lil video that’s glittery, braid-y, and generally inspiring across the board.

PS !!FKA Liz!!: tell Robert Pattinson that I love him dearly. read more…

#WCW: Phoebe Dykstra and Audrey Kitching

Over the summer, we united Internet friends Phoebe Dykstra and Audrey Kitching – and there was AstroTurf, mini golf, and vegan cupcakes involved.

We, more than anyone, know what it means to have a girl crush – or more appropriately, a #WCW (because day-relevant, duh). So when we got word that Audrey was on her way to the 6, we knew that something had to be done to permeate the aforementioned internet friendship into IRL-times. Since we’ve been longtime followers of Audrey ourselves, we were overjoyed at the prospect of a lil visit – and while there are only Phoebe’s joyful squeals caught on camera, trust us when we say that an inspirational GALPAL-POWERED afternoon was enough to trigger even the quietest of us to ~share a gentle smile~ and blow some majestic bubbles at the camera. read more…

FIT CHATZ: Barreworks with Aliya-Jasmine Sovani


FIT CHATZ: It’s kind of like chit chats except with fitness and a “z” for added visual interest. Get it? Anyway…

We constantly reiterate that there just aren’t enough hours in the day – and while we aren’t complaining (because we live each moment to the fullest and all that jazz lol), we wouldn’t reject a couple of extra hours if they happened to get tacked onto our day. Luckily for us, we’ve been reassured that we don’t need to sacrifice anything in our lives because “there isn’t enough time” (and we don’t have to sacrifice our necks a la Channing Tatum when we work out #relevant). So, without further ado, say hiiii to our good pal Aliya-Jasmine!

Much like we sat in on fitness routines with Phoebe + Lauren and Sharlene, we followed AJ to Barreworks on Queen Street West in Toronto – AKA the life-changing establishment that has managed to formulate a workout that uses mostly your own body weight to grow long and lean muscles using a ballerina’s barre. We know that school can be tolling, but any excuse to live out our dreams as a ballerina is a win in our (text)books! read more…

A Back To Cool/School Skateboard Tutorial with Kastor & Pollux

Let me start off by saying that no matter the circumstance, talking about yourself in the third person is always a bizarre experience. However, since there is no immediate remedy (other than just, like, not talking about yourself in the third person), I’m just going to own up to it, embrace the challenge, and conclude this little tangent by bringing attention to the fact that sincerity is always the first step in writing a successful blog post.

While I often write under the Fora Staff moniker (even though my name is in fact Danielle AKA the blonder half of Kastor & Pollux), for the sake of penning sincere copy to accompany my face, here are my third-person insights regarding the best and most HUNNIT *prayer hands* DIY in the entire universe.

Now that that’s been said, this September, we want you to SKATE BACK TO SCHOOL IN STYLE – or at least walk to school in style carrying this cool decorative skateboard. In collaboration with the [crazy cool] girls from Kastor & Pollux, we’ve created a deck that’s part shiny, part fresh, and 100% one hunnit – duh. When seeking out your very own sk8er boy boyfriend becomes too tired (and not true), take matters into your own hands and amp up the ante with something sure to catch people’s attention. It might not be the ideal tool for *insert skateboard lingo here*, but as long as you look cute – does it really matter?!

Does this all sound like a grand plan, Stan? If the answer is yes, get ready…get set…SKATE BACK TO SCHOOL COOL with Kastor & Pollux!!! read more…

Here are some quick tips to looking your best out of bed! read more…

GIRL GUIDE: Molly Young


When faced with the task of having to write a profile about a woman who writes profiles for a living, I found myself at a lost for words. At age 27, Molly Young’s prolific oeuvre includes pieces for New York, GQ, and Elle to name a few. Very few. She’s an avid reader of Dwight Garner book reviews, an ABBA fan, and an aspiring crossword architect. Translation: there’s a reason why they call her Magic Molly.

As the rules go, when you set out to write a profile you should always start with a theory about your subject. In Young’s experience, these theories are always proven wrong by interview’s end. Be it over lunch with David Karp or boardroom banter à la Jenna Lyons, Young ritualistically finds herself enamored by her profilees. After corresponding via email on all things literary (with a special shout out to lasagna) I found the NYC transplant by way of San Fran was exactly how I imaged her to be. Someone who’d enlist Lisa Simpson in her all-girl army, someone who identifies with Garfield, and most importantly, someone who wouldn’t question the fact that we asked her to write a haiku. read more…

GIRL GUIDE: Caley Vanular

We’re going to take a gander and say that you’ve never met a Jill of all trades quite like Caley Vanular.

Though she has a creative portfolio that covers everything from art direction to design to marketing, first and foremost, this Vancouver native considers herself an athlete. So if a client list citing Aritzia and Herschel Supply Co. wasn’t enough to get you to put down that medium pizza(?) and get *out there*, then the fact that this superbabe/supergirl IS ALSO AN ATHLETE will definitely be incentive enough.

Oftentimes, traditional mindsets prevent people from understanding that we live in a day and age where our work can span a multitude of fields – and there’s no need to be confined by one thing. Living and working doesn’t have to be separate – and according to Caley, work doesn’t really seem like work when you love what you’re doing. Make your own opportunities, work hard, and keep pushing even in the bleakest of situations. So from crazy travel stories (that sound like something out of a movie), to general life/work advice, it’s time for you, too, to get inspired by this #WellTravelled storyteller. read more…
