DIY: Earrings as Brooches

In the photo above you can see two DIYs. Yesterday I showed you my hearts on my nails, which you can see better here. But take a closer look at my "brooches". They're earrings. Yup, I woke up that morning and really wanted to wear colourful broaches, and I don't have any. So I said, forget this, time for a little DIY and used some earrings as brooches. What do you think?
You've seen these earrings here, here and here.

I mentioned yesterday that I was going to speak at a workshop with the young adults about journalism and story telling. It was a very lively evening. Thank you Priya for inviting me, and all the participants who came last night for the questions and discussion.

Another very exciting thing happened yesterday that I was too nervous to share with you guys. A few days ago, Aaron, a reporter with Associated Press TV emailed me and said he wanted to interview me about my impression on Canadian fashion designers and our fashion industry. At first I thought he must be emailing the wrong person, but he assured me that it wasn't a mistake. He was following the blog, and wanted to hear my perspective. So we did the interview yesterday, and I even surprised myself with how much I knew about Canadian fashion and my impressions of it, and amazing new designers to watch for. I think a part of me still feels like "who the heck am I to talk about fashion" but it was nice to share some of that passion with a very bright journalist who was interested. Thank you Aaron for the interview, it was my honour. And I can't wait to see the finished piece!
