According to What? Exhibit

Last weekend I had the pleasure of experiencing Ai Weiwei’s exhibit, According to What? at the AGO. Not only is the AGO a gorgeous building, with an impressive collection of Canadian and international artwork, but the exhibit provided a lot to think about.

Hair Pretties

After shying away from hair accessories that, more often than not, got swallowed by my thick curly hair, I’ve recently revisited headbands, hair clips, and all things pretty for my hair.
