i love MTV, and if you love it as much as i do then you also have a small place in your heart for Dan Levy and Jessi Cruickshank from the AfterShow. well folks you no longer have to tune into MTV just after the 10 spot show, because these two lovelies will be hosts on CTV Olympic Morning! Olympic Morning begins at 6am until 12pm from Feb 13th to 28th… so get ready for CTV to get a little shaken up. this time around you won’t be hearing their rants & raves about LC, Lo, Kristin and Brody, but instead they will provide us with an up-to-the-minute look at everything Olympics! hopefully Dan and Jessi will bring their A-game to support Canada during the Games!
also, follow the torch HERE, and watch Dan carry the torch at around 1:05 Van time, which is 4:05 Toronto time!
with only 4 DAYS left until the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games it’s time to gear up if you haven’t already done so. today i purchased the HBC Red Mittens which cost only $10 and all the money supports Canadian athletes! The Bay just re-ordered 1 million pairs of mittens, totaling enough inventory to potentially allow every single Canadian to sport these mitts during the winter games!

We have recently befriended lovely fashion illustrator, Genya, from StylishGoose.com! and thank god for that, because her work is amazingly gorgeous! Genya takes inspiration for her illustrations from her favourite designers’ collections. being a fellow Canadian herself (actually we’re both from Ottawa!), Genya has more recently illustrated a look inspired by the Fashion Magazine’s February Olympic shoot, involving official Vancouver 2010 Olympic wear from HBC. we previously wrote about the Liisa Winkler spread here.
for more stylish illustrations don’t forget to visit Stylish Goose personally, you won’t regret it! we only wish we could be this creative…
Over the weekend, photographer Ryan McGinley (you’ve probably seen his work in Aritzia’s windows, and on their shopping bags in the fall of 2008), wrapped up a photo shoot in Utah for the Vancouver 2010 Olympic games. This is the second time that McGinley has photographed athletes for the Olympics. In 2004 he shot the U.S. Olympic Swim Team (as pictured above). Can’t wait to see the 2010 version! - Source
