Your Guide To: The Last Road Trip of Summer

Alas, BTS is days away and soon wearing shoes will required of us once again *sigh*. Goodbye barefoot living, bikinis as tops, and shirtless lifeguards. Parting is such sweet sorrow. But before you wave adiós to casual summer living, why not plan one last shindig for the books? As our final ode to summer 2014, we’ve created a guide to your last road trip of the season. Inspired by the #EtsyRoadTrip we went on earlier this month (ICYMI click here, here and here) – all of the tips have been tried and tested by yours truly and FORA videographer, Rosizzle. So why not make the most of the long weekend, pack your car full of baes, and #keepitwild! read more…

#EtsyRoadTrip: Last Stop!

 

Crusin’ down the fast line towards the last stop of the #EtsyRoadTrip seemed like an appropriate time to reminisce on every 90s girl’s favourite road trip flick: Crossroads. In retrospect, our adventures with Team Etsy are (v. loosely) comparable to my teenage guilty pleasure; all roads leading to adventure, good tunes, and most of all ~friendship~. Obviously this makes me the Britney Spears of our off-screen excursion. Not so obviously our hometown proved the perfect backdrop to our tourist-for-a-day foray into all things handmade. Armed with all the tech gear two fashion girls can carry (see above video) we loaded our instax mini, packing extra film for good measure. In the true spirit of FORA, no cookie, cactus, or cuddly pup would go unphotographed. read more…

10 Days of #EtsyRoadTrip

2EtsyHeader

Greetings from the passenger seat!! Today we’re halfway through our #EtsyRoadTrip adventure. For those of you who are bad with directions, that’s at the crossroads of bittersweet and are we there yet?! Even though today marks the semi-completion of our ice cream escapades, if you’re a glass-half-full kinda believer like myself, you know that the midpoint is a time for reflection, a #TBT into the not so distant past (of yesterday). That, and making it halfway also serves as an allegorical trophy for the directionally challenged; “WE MADE IT” inscribed on its figurative base. But let’s not draw attention to that.

Tailing our new BFFs, AKA Team Etsy, we made our way to Ottawa and Kingston with eager hearts and hungry bellies. read more…

On Da Road With Etsy x MTV FORA

EtsyLayout

Pack it up, pack it in. Let me begin. In case you missed it, we’ve hit the road with our buds at Etsy Canada in the name of all things handmande/local/tasty! As you can imagine, when food trucks and covetable handmade accessories collide, it’s one big Pinterest-worthy dream come true. I’m talking ice cream for dinner and handmade treats so sweet you’ll be swearing off big box chains before sundown (Exhibit A: The Angry Weather). And did I mention the airstream?! We’ll get to that, but first a recap of our Etsy-fied excursion from Parc Olympique to Old Port, Montréal.

DISCLAIMER: This post will likely definitely give you roadtrip fever. Lucky for you, we’ve got two stops left on our adventure! You can catch the party in YYZ territory this Friday and Saturday (In food talk that’s Beavertails and Churros, respectively, FYI). read more…

Revenge Of The Trends


Fashion is all about *evolving* (yes, like your favourite Pokemon) and luckily for us, some trends that may be considered “dated” are coming back in full swing. I like to call this one: revenge of the trends. read more…

Street Style Lookbook: Peep Show

I think weather people everywhere were confused, as temperatures soared to unusually humid heights and then plummeted to chilly breezes within the span of a couple of hours. To counter these unusual patterns, local style-savants opted for layers on top, and bare ankles on the bottom. So what do you think, humans? Should we take our cues from these streetstylers and finally bid byebye to wool socks? read more…

Your Comprehensive Guide To Dressing Head To Toe In Ice Cream

I scream for ice cream when I get a Daily Deal email from Marble Slab, and whenever I stumble across a delicious ice cream ~fashion~ accessory. In both cases, my reactions are somewhere along the lines of “yommmm, give me that now!” because who wouldn’t want to be indulging in sweet ice cream deliciousness while simultaneously dressed head to toe in pretty pastel colours?! We’ve already taught you how to dress head to toe in pizza clothing and now we’d like to teach you how to dress head to toe in ice cream clothing… because it’s actually a lot prettier! Just don’t tell the pizza cat…

Etsy Shops We (Selfishly) Wish Someone Would Open

PSSST. You have a secret admirer. Yup, word has been going around that Etsy LOVES Canada. They told me so.

Etsy loves Canada SO much that they’re offering new businesses 20 free listings for signing up, calling humans to turn their ~passion~ into dolla dolla bill$z, and giving us all more super-cool-totally-awesome online vendors to buy from!! YAY. To encourage all you young entrepreneurs (and to salivate our shopping palettes), we’ve dreamed up five Etsy Shops we (selfishly) wish someone would open.

We welcome you to steal our ideas & make sh*t happen!
