FIT CHATZ: Nike Training Club with Sharlene Chiu

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

Last week we may have “om”-ed with Phoebe and Lauren, but this week, we ditched our typical noms“, and bumped up the intensity by sitting in on a Nike Training Club session with Sharlene Chiu. read more…

A Tasty Taste Of Toronto Adventure With Sharlene Chiu

So get this: the international Taste Festival makes its North American debut in Toronto this July 24-27 and it features 17 of the city’s most drool-worthy restaurants. As an avid eater and obsessive food lover, I’m beyond stoked for Taste of Toronto and have officially begun the countdown to July 24. To wane my hunger pains til then (and an excuse to eat 3 lunches), I invited my galpal/ MTV FORA’s editor, Dani Roche for a binge hop across the city to have a little Taste of…. Taste! read more…

Into The Wild With Sharlene

Your makeup routine doesn’t necessarily have to span across a bountiful selection of products and brands – and our ladyfriend Sharlene Chiu can attest to this.

After being diagnosed with dermatitis, Sharlene was forced to overhaul her extensive collection of makeup and skincare products – a worst nightmare to some, but a blessing in disguise for others (because let’s be serious: who doesn’t want a more condensed get-ready-in-the-morning routine?!) So although we don’t /all/ have the liberty of being followed around by various plant life (S/O TO THE WILDERNESS), we do have the opportunity to read about her story and decorate our faces in some c00l new (dermatitis-friendly) products! read more…

HOW TO BE: Tres French

They say you always want what you can’t have – and our affinity for all things French is probably no exception. Though an aggressive love for baguettes and a growing stash of Eiffel Tower-related paraphernalia definitely comes part-and-parcel with our Parisian appreciation, today’s focus doesn’t stray too far away from a longterm desire to channel the effortless elegance of Clemence Poesy and the undeniable sex appeal of Brigitte Bardot. read more…

Will You Be My BFF?

In true Fora fashion, we caught up with Liz, Phoebe, Sharlene, Nicole and Aliya-Jasmine (some of our REAL LIFE besties) to ask them who their hypothetical celebrity BFF would be. Though they didn’t say the members of One Direction like we originally hoped, they did rationalize their choices in a way that makes us want to do everything in our power to bring their #biffle dreams into fruition.

Though this hypothetical BFF question/situation has been weighing down on our minds for quite some time now (see: 1 and 2), we figured the best way to address these #issues/bring them to the public’s attention was to create this open letter of sorts and let Gwen Stefani, PSY, Solange, Selena Gomez & Paulina Gretzky that they’ve got some A+ humans that are totes #BFF material.
Who do you wish your BFF was? Us, maybe? Tell us: @MTV_FORA

What's Your Dream Collaboration?

Fashion collaborations are clearly here to stay, from Jeremy Scott for Adidas to the much anticipated Maison Martin Margiela for H&M – these bad boys are popping up every other week. So, we got to thinking… in a perfect little fashion world, what would be our dream collaboration? They could be out-there crazy pairings or just two designers that we’d would love to see working together. We asked our sisters/sisters-from-different-misters – Sharlene Chiu, Aliya-Jasmine, Liz Trinnear, Sarah Taylor & Sheena Snively for their input on this pressing matter. read more…

A Canadian In New York: Instagrahams!

We all love the poop out of Instagram. How else would anyone really know how much fun we’re having? Gone are the photo album uploading days of ye old Facebook. It’s all about insta-fun, hashtags and filters, talk only an Instagrammer or IGer would understand. You could imagine my giddiness then, when I found this place called Baking For Good.
