Today is fabulous #WomanCrushWednesday! GABI GREGG
In the Spotlight: Ardith M.!!




"My new lady-crush is Gabi Gregg. She’s a plus-size fashion blogger who caused quite a stir with a photograph of herself in a bikini. (So much so that she was invited on the "Today" show). She avidly promotes body positivity, and is part of a growing community of plus size women in the fashion industry. She has encouraged other plus size women to post their own "fatkini" pictures, and the response was overwhelmingly positive. (To note- the bikini that she wore in the photo sold out almost instantly!) She collected the photos into an online gallery on xojane, showing that plus size women of all shapes can look great in bikinis.

She has gone on to launch her own line of swimwear with swimsuitsforall, for sizes 10-24, and was recently selected to be a ChevyChic correspondent at the Essence Street Style Awards in NYC.” #wcw

Check out the UforChange VIMEO Page for "Lost Dog". A short film shot by the UforChange youth. 

Lost dog is about how a dog named Charlie inexplicably wakes up as a human being one day, in a seemingly abandoned building. While his owner frantically searches for him outside, he explores and comes across three spirit-esque characters in one room. Each encounter is filled with cryptic commentary on his appearance and situation, leading to one question: will he ever find his way back home?

Enjoy!

Matsuri Japanese Summer Festival (July 27th, 2014) in Toronto

Well, first of all I would like to thank the Kurakake Company for hosting such as great festival in Toronto, which strongly promotes Arts and encourages cultural diversity. Secondly, I need to thank Luke H. (Vice President of Kurakake Company) for permitting youth such as I, to have the wonderful opportunity to photograph this successful event. Oh, did I mention I got to meet some of the most awesome performers and designers!! Yes, I got to see some backstage hype and energetic spirit from all the performers getting ready to showcase their talent.

To find out more details about the event, including the performers, designers, and vendors, make sure to visit http://www.matsuri.ca/
