I'm still on a high from attending AGO/MOMA exhibit, Abstract Expressionist New York yesterday. Abstract art is one of my/our favourite forms, Jackson Pollock's art especially moves me. It (similar to others) has complex, emotional layers, with so much detail and paint freedom, it's like looking at the clouds, you see so many images and emotions the longer you stare..

I have wanted an Arty Ring by Yves Saint Laurent for YEARS... What better time to possibly make my dream come true than in Paris!!! In Suzy Gershman's Guide to Shopping in Paris, she clearly advises to take advantage of buying French products/brands as they are a lot cheaper in Europe than in North America. Also noted not to focus on American brands as they can cost the same if not more. The other item on the top of my must have list is a pair of Repetto Ballerina Flats. Repetto is a French ballet shoes company, and they are known for their quality and array of colours to choose from. Right now I'm debating between red and turquoise coloured ballerina flats..

And then there is THE Cambridge Satchel I can't get over. Would be perfect satchel/shoulder bag for my professional lifestyle... The Cambridge Satchel Company is a UK brand, I may see if the satchels are cheaper when we're in London before and after Paris. I did spot a pop-up store on my street that is selling them too...


Jackson Pollock is my favourite abstract artist, my eyes were tearing a bit walking through the exhibit. I'm so happy I was able to score this great book focused solely on Jackson Pollock's body of work and his inspirations. After visiting the AGO we ended up going to the H&M nearby to see if they had any great "spring coats" for my man. No luck unfortunately today, but I will definitely keep my eyes open.. While we were there I noticed the spring magazine


First day it hasn't rained for a while, so my boyfriend and I got up and seized the day. Last night there was a launch/opening party for an Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) exclusive exhibit, Abstract Expressionist New York.

"For the first time ever, an unrivaled collection of Abstract Expressionist masterpieces is leaving New York City. This monumental show features the legendary artists who dripped, splattered, and painted in fields of incredible colour. As the political traumas of their time reverberated around them, they placed their massive canvasses on floors and walls, creating artwork that exploded into life with spectacular vision and changed the course of art history forever."
