It’s been over a month since I last took blog pictures and I kind-of-sort-of apologize for that. As I’m sure you can assume, a great deal of this was accredited to the fact that 1) I’ve been wearing giant sweaters, leggings, hats, and copious amounts of under-eye concealer since returning from my mini-vacations to NY and Florida, and 2) I’ve been too delusional to write coherent sentences as the semester dragged on.

Bianca has been keeping the blog going though, which is great…because reverting back to the times of inactive WordPress accounts is something that both terrifies and upsets me. I sincerely hope (if you love us as much as we love ourselves) this prospective inactivity would upset you/send you into hysterical fits of depression as well – but then again, who am I to assume?

As I mentioned in my last post, I am officially done all my undergrad classes and projects – and although I am feeling rightfully liberated/free/happy, the emotional roller-coaster and sleepless battle is not quite over yet. My program of 80-odd people has been working relentlessly for the past school year to put together our end-of-year graduation exhibit, and it’s happening in a week! As a culmination of everything we’ve been working on for the past four years, it’s slated to be **the event of our young designer lives** but I’m not quite so optimistic.

To me, the grad show is like our high school prom, minus the awkwardness and the regretfully terrible garb. I’m in it for the memories, and the pride I’m going to be feeling once I see the work of all my friends and classmates come together. High school was an okay period of my life, but the four-years of my undergraduate degree has been a life-altering and personhood-shaping experience. I’m going to avoid being as corny as possible since the majority of you reading this are really not relevant to all these ~feelings~, but I am so grateful for my time spent in school. For those of you who have been following Bianca & I since the beginning, I’m sure you can pinpoint the complaining and crying and hysteria outlined on all social media platforms…and it’s going to be weird to have school-related anxiety come to an end. With that said, it’s surreal to be embarking on ~the next chapter of my life~, and although I’m both excited and terrified, I know that everything is going to end up okay.

If you’re in the Toronto area and like creative-type things, check out my work (and the work of my talented peers) at the Fermenting Cellar in the Distillery District, April 14-16. All information you could possibly need to know is on our super awesome website, and in the really fun screen grabs (pertaining to me…~DUH~) below.

    Hello Dani and Bianca!

    I have been following your guys’ journey since your plastic skyline days. It’s been awesome to see and read about the big things that has been happening to the both of you since then. You guys have been my hair idols ever since you both started experimenting with colors and cuts! I am currently in love with the short cuts you both have, especially Dani’s choice of hair color!

    I was planning to try something new this upcoming summer and give the platinum blonde a go. Dani, did you get your hair colored professionally and also what are your tips and tricks to maintaining it?

    would love to get some feedback from you girls
