Geometry Lesson

Here are some of fav costume jewelry pieces that I currently have on repeat. I love costume jewelry because it is inexpensive, it presents opportunities for mixing & matching and there is no worry if you lose an earring 😉

Trending right now is large geometric shapes for earrings. These are unique because their shapes are disrupted. The triangle has a little loop in it and the hoops have a pearl.

This circle necklace came with my FabFitFun subscription. I’ve been a member since Spring 2017 and I love receiving a box of great stuff every 3 months. I like the clean design of this necklace and its’ simplicity.

These beaded tassel earring called my name at Nordstrom Rack. Teal/Turquoise are my colours and never more so then when I became an endo-ovarian cancer survivor. Whenever I wear teal now it is so much more than my favourite colour.

In 2018

I became an influencer for good!

I raised awareness and badly needed research funds ($1900) for women’s gynecological cancers.

I laughed until I cried.

I joined a Road Hockey Team called the Ovarian Blitzers and helped raise money for Princess Margaret Cancer Center.

I rode a cable car.

I learned that being a cancer survivor is a journey.

CONTRIBUTION

The last few months have been about giving back. Teal Fashion Week raised $1900 for the Ovarian Blitzers Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer team from the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. This success strengthened my collaboration with the key fundraisers for the team. If you’re wondering what the link is – my doctor – Marcus Bernardini is the captain of this team and I came on board through him.

EVOLUTION

Last year during radiation treatment for Endo-Ovarian cancer I focused on awareness and presenting a positive outlook about treatment through my 25Days25Looks campaign.

Then it was fundraising for World Ovarian Cancer Week with my Teal Fashion Week campaign.

Now it’s using my creativity to help the Ovarian Blitzers with their communication strategy for their 4th annual bowling event. I sourced images and then tinted them to create a “teal” themed campaign. I also designed their new logo for communication and team shirts.

My friends and I are excited to be participating in the bowling event and of course we need to look great as Team Teal Fashion Week so I designed our look. I call it Meaghan-Markle-meets-Jackson-Pollack! Each of my friends gave me a white shirt and picked an accent colour. I monogrammed each of their shirts and then went to work on the design. I used shades of teal for the paint splatter and then the custom colour was added to each shirt to make it individual.

Teal Fashion Week – Wrap up

It’s a wrap on my first ever fundraising campaign. I’m super excited to report that I raised just over $1700. I’m sure my doc and his team the Ovarian Blitzers will be overjoyed to receive this. I enjoyed the creative challenge of combining road hockey with fashion. I know i killed it!!!

Here are some highlights:

A mention and a feature from Ovarian Cancer Canada on World Ovarian Cancer Day. Honoured to stand with other fabulous women bringing awareness and raising funds for this disease.

I love how this before and after story turned out. Incorporating the hockey theme really stretched my creativity and imagination. Teal heels with hockey gear visually summed up the whole story.

If I make this a yearly thing (I totally want too!!!) I will be keeping my eye out for all things teal.

THANK YOU THANK YOU to everyone who supported this campaign!

World Ovarian Cancer Day

1 year ago I started radiation treatment for Endo-Ovarian cancer. I also started #25days25looks to document my journey and put a positive spin on going to cancer treatment everyday. I wore this teal dress from Anthropologie to one of last appointments Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. I met so many great people there including my doc Marcus Bernardini and this collaboration between fashion and Road Hockey was born. On World Ovarian Cancer Day I’m fundraising for Marcus’ Ovarian Blitzers Road Hockey to conquer cancer team. Please help me reach my goal here.

Day 1 – Teal Fashion Week

It was 1 year ago when I started radiation treatment for Endo-ovarian cancer at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. I also started an awareness campaign 25 Days 25 Looks to show women that cancer diagnosis and treatment does not mean give up.
This year, to support World Ovarian Cancer Day (May 8) I’ve joined forces with the Ovarian Blitzers Road Hockey to Conquer Cancer Team to raise funds all week during TEAL FASHION WEEK.

Please help me reach my goal of $1200 so more women can overcome ovarian cancer. Donate here today.
Wear teal on May 8th or any day and tag your photo #tealfashionweek.

I’ve put together a capsule collection of some great teal looks for the week.
