MY LIFE | One Heck Of A July

July was definitely a blur. Not sure how that happened, but it was a pretty great to say the least. Take a look at what I got up to this month:

EVENT | x Live @ The Apt NYC

I've come to really love going out to see comedy shows in New York. They're always going on and it's (usually) a pretty fun time. So when I got asked to check out a comedy event hosted by & Live @ The Apt, I was like, why not?

It turned out to be WAY better than I expected. Honestly, I had no idea what to expect, so it was such a great surprise. For starters, the venue was unreal. The view (see above) was insane and it was probably one of the most perfect nights to be out on a rooftop. We were at the top of The Dylan, which was basically next to the Empire State Building — can't get anymore NYC than that, folks.

#INTERNLIFE | Nicki Minaj Thinks "Anaconda" Got Snubbed By VMAs

So you've probably heard about this whole Nicki Minaj/Taylor Swift Twitter "feud" that went on this week, which was definitely an interesting thing to find on my newsfeed.

For Refinery29, I wrote about the tweets that started it all...

FASHION | Keds 'Ladies First' Campaign Starring Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift sure has been killin' it these days. From her insanely good-looking girl squad to her (almost) equally good-looking bf Calvin Harris, I mean, what more can she get her hands on?

Well, add another awesome campaign to her list. She's headlining the Keds global rebrand and featured in the fall 2015 ads and it's kind of a big deal. "Ladies first since 1916" is the tagline and it's pretty rad.

Take a look:

FASHION | Betsey Johnson x Capezio Starring Maddie Ziegler

I remember my days of buying Capezio dance shoes (way, way back in the day) and I totally would have loved this new collaboration. Betsey Johnson has teamed up with Capezio for a line of fun dance wear and the face of the campaign is Maddie Ziegler, Dance Moms super star and mini Sia. This 12-year-old is seriously killing go girl.

EVENT | Canada Day In NYC

Image via Facebook
I spent my first Canada Day in New York City and I gotta say, it was pretty great. There was a Canadian party at the PH-D Rooftop Lounge at the Dream Hotel in Chelsea — complete with poutine, cardboard cutouts of Rob Ford and Wayne Gretzky, a playlist that included Avril Lavigne/Drake/Nelly Furtado/Tom Cochrane, and of course, good ol' Canadian beer.

I felt right at home. And it was PACKED. I think we all were pretty excited to get to celebrate with fellow Canadians.
