Hello cuties!

I have been doing nothing but abuse Starbuck’s WIFI and work a couple of shifts for the past few weeks. Life hasn’t been hectic, life hasn’t been exciting, but at least I’m keeping myself amused with Macbook selfies!

Friendly words of advise – if there is nothing to do and you are bored out of your mind LEAVE YOUR HOUSE. I have been rocking adventures around Toronto, and going for walks whenever I please.

Here are some snapshots of the beautiful scenery I come across. There will also be the occasional instagram screenshot of Tyler the Creators face, and random images from my Camera Roll. Have fun!

Lets start with my neighbourhood!!
(which is pretty gorgeous)










YAY FREE DRINKS – I love you Starbucks




The Distillery in Toronto was having an Art Fair during the long weekend. Naturally I took so many photos!!!









THE SEGWAY TOURS – makes me laugh every time


One of my favourite cards sold @ BLOSSOM LOUNGE. There is more where this came from, trust me.


OK now you can see my random collection of photos


My roommate Mike thought it was a grand idea to place ‘Caddy’ in my studio. His reasoning ‘she’s kind of naked you could totally draw her’ SURE – OKAY – WHY NOT




Phase 1 of ‘Angel Eyes’ painting (acrylic)


Phase 2 of ‘Angel Eyes’ painting (acrylic)


Final piece!!! ‘Angel Eyes’ Acrylic


My friend Andrew is A+






D.I.Y Whiteboard!!




That’s all for now folks – I hope you enjoyed the long weekend (:

Hello! I’m all moved in and you should now take a look at my lovely abode.



1 of 2 staircases! We have the main staircase and a ‘maids corridor’ thing. It’s awesome. The only downfall is I never know which staircase to use! OPTIONS


We are goofballs


This is one out of very many unused fireplaces that we have in this house! This one specifically is from my bedroom that I am quite embarrassed to show a full photo of. Once it is decorated I promise I will share it with you!!


nice butt Angie. MY LIVING ROOM! I love all the windows


Staircase number 2


This is where the magic happens!




Welcome to my studio





Go Angie Go




k bye



Now onto to the randoms from my Camera Roll! Wooo!

While unpacking I found this gem with a tag 'LOVE MOMY' - THANKS MOM

While unpacking I found this gem with a tag ‘LOVE MOMY’ – THANKS MOM











my excited face during the ride up to Toronto on move in day


Went on a lunch date with Angie to our fav cafe in Cambridge, Melville Cafe!




My last day of relaxation in Cambridge was spent in the lovely backyard of Whintona!




HAA Angie and I at our prime in Grade 9








And I will leave you with these delicious cinnamon sticks!

Woah has life ever been so hectic. Thank goodness spontaneous adventures exists to keep me sane during the transition period of moving from Guelph to Toronto. I have finally got a job!!!!! at Blossom Lounge.Β Its so awesome omg. If you ever visit or just happen to be in Toronto and you feel like strolling through the Distillery District – make sure to come visit Blossom Lounge! (its so pretty you wont regret it)

I have also found a cute house to move into!! Yay! I’m going to “Apartment Therapy the shit out of it”. I will blog before and after pics don’t you worry. I am so excited to have a bedroom AND an office! I need this. I need both. I have been living in a bedroom about the size of a walk-in-closet since the age of 13.. its time for space! Its also time for me to have my ‘big girl bed’ πŸ˜€ (this will be first time I will own a bed bigger than a twin. WOO) Also my office will be transformed into a studio featuring easels, giant canvases, my desk, a retro drawing table (if it doesn’t fit in the kitchen), and my keyboard. Plus I have white cemented-in fireplaces that I’m so excited to decorate with pointless knick-knacks.. they don’t even need a purpose they just need to look pretty. But enough fan-girling about this house, you will be informed more about it later.

So back to my spontaneous adventures.. The entry photo is part of the following collection of photos taken on 4/20 – where I ventured to Toronto for the day to sign the lease for my house and chill with the boys. We found a beach filled with pink umbrellas and white lawn chairs! AND there was a boat. So cool.


I’ve been in Toronto quite a bit the past few weeks! In between job interviews and chillin with my homi’s I was able to snap a couple of pics in the city..


The next few photos are of my dear friends Michelle, Nicole, Jess, Katie,Carley, and Marnie’s house! Even though the house was dutty I still loved the chill environment the girls gave! One thing I will most definitely miss is crashing on their couch and waking up to vanilla and nutmeg coffee (omnom).

And now for my random collection of photos selected from my Camera Roll! Yay iPhones!

it’s technically still happy hour #5:57

I’m going to serenade my Instagram with poetic photos of Guelph cause BYEE

Hello hello everyone! I’ve been snowed in a friends for the past few days! Canadian weather has definitely been true to its stereotype. Look at the snow (you can kind of see it in the background)

Alex, Spencer, Lauren, Alex and Jordan’s backyard

The whole house and I were supposed to go to the Mandarin in Kitchener which made me super excited because thats right by my home town but we ended up going to Montana’s right down the road instead. The safer route due to the weather haha

The art I drew on the paper table cloth at Montana’s !

we felt super lame (and cool) to pose with our lollipops when we got our bills haha

The last couple of nights I’ve had days off and I’ve been house hopping haha. I feel like a gypsy (title reference here). Last night (and tonight) I’ve been crashing at Alex’s, and the night before at my bestests Michelle’s. Her house and roomies are fantabulous and I love chilling with them after work and whatnot. I absolutely love staring at the ceiling in their living room – especially after a night of partying and the whole world is in a kaleidoscope. This is why:

yes thats a rainbow, spiked, lightbulb.

earlier that night Michelle, Chanti, Tori and I went for beers at the Bullring on campus and then got free beers at Brasstaps for being Fine Arts students! yay

IM SO EXCITED what are the odds that they’re coming to Guelph?!!

fun story: right after taking this selfie I spilt coffee ALL OVER MY SHIRT. RlP shirt, you were beautiful. (I gots it at American Apparel)

my super swag monkey slippers my parents kept for me #thelittlethings

welcome to my front yard!!

super cute poster I found in the Zavitz building on campus. Love it! I would like some Luck and Cats plz

Hello hello. I seemed to not have talked to you a lot one on one but have no fear I will finally tell you who the person behind this blog is.

As you know I’m LOVEAMV (Love, AnnaMaria Vasco). I was studying Fine Arts at the University of Guelph but I recently, spontaneously, decided to drop out and go to a Fashion Institute in Toronto. – As of right now I’m working as a tailor, hemming pants and such, to save up money for this super intense school of fashion things omg (still not over it).

I like art. Art is fun, and as a future fashion student I want to combine the two in all of my projects. Cause art and fashion are cool together, and ya.

I love wordpress – as a Tumblr-er its hard to admit that yes another blogging site is equally as awesome. I like it here, and I’m here to stay. So this is why I’m introducing myself (again) (mainly because the first time I did this I just said cheeky things that describe nothing about my life what-so-ever and called it a day).

I’m Canadian. I want to live in Toronto, London UK [inset british flag here], Paris [eiffel tower], Milan, New York City, LA, and San Francisco. Big dreams I know. My Italian mother has a heart attack every time I talk about it. Poor thing.
But ya big cities are fun. And so is travelling :]

I come from a gigantic Italian family. There are officially 11 in my immediate family (including myself, and sausage my sister and her hubby Mike’s wiener dog). So when I do an “Insta- round up” [title reference here] and show you all photos of my life on Instagram, I’ll introduce you. So then you know who they are and thats fun. And also my friends. and random people I think are cool on the internet…

The main reason behind this blog is so I can show you what I like. And this way we can fan girl about these things together – tell me what you think and what you want to see!! So then I know what to blog about next. I may write like an illiterate fuck (english, grammer, spelling, numbers, etc. – I can’t do it. Ever since I was a kid, it just doesn’t make sense. Fashion school will help me!!) (This is what happens when you paint instead of write essays and do math shit for two years). But hey! I am willing to learn! I promise. My articles will one day make sense I’m sure of it!

So I will not post all of my instagram photos but if you want to see them just follow me! My username is Loveamv (surprise) (click the link to see an online friendly profile of my insta-life). Here are my favourite photos from the beginning up until a week.

“falling in love with my new necklace 😻”
[January 2013]
— totally got that necklace ‘on sale’ at Ardenes. Also the fact that both of my head phones still work in this photo makes me sad because only the one works now and its the worst thing ever.

[January 2013]

“Wassup my brotha #zia #ella”

“CANADA #snow”

“Make Art Not War #beauty @alexwhinton”
[January 2013]
— This is my bffl Alex and her sweater that matches one of the posters at the posters sale in the University Centre. Supa coooool

“oh hey”
[January 2013]
— felt a little spontaneous and got a tattoo of 2 octaves in C Major :] And shaved the back of my head. when I say I’m spontaneous I’m not kidding. ALSO THIS COUNTS FOR THE TATTOO GOAL. so ya :]

“here’s another one of my nudes! #art #charcoal #drawing”
[November 2012]
— last semester I was in a drawing class and this is what I got to do all the time. twas amazing. This model was also a fox and I always spot her at local coffee shops (can I say awkward?) I still long for the day a beautiful tan man with scruff does nude modelling and we fall madly in love. I watch The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants wayyyy too often!
