Reasons I “Ghost” Men on the Internet

Raise your hand if you’ve ever tried online dating! I know I have and let me tell you – it’s terrible. Many women I’ve talked to have expressed that they tend to lean towards just ghosting men who they don’t feel a connection with and in my past I have taken this option as well. […]

How to Have your Best Birthday Yet

It was my 24th birthday this weekend, and while it may not have been the perfect birthday weekend – it was the best birthday I’ve had in years. I went into it this year with no plans and a not giving a f*** attitude and I wouldn’t change a thing. Here’s what I learned about […]

Review – Celebrity Facial at The Skin Girls

It’s binge eating after dinner because there wasn’t enough time in the day to eat a substantial meal. It’s missing your loved ones even if they’re 5 minutes away, because […]

Meghan Does Self-Care – Why Perfectionism is for Suckers

Welcome to the first part of a (hopefully) ongoing collaboration with my soul-sister, Meghan. I talk a lot about having an amazing tribe of women who support each other and my girl, M is a prime example of this.

Things I’m Thankful for

This past weekend was Thanksgiving weekend in Canada, and I spent the weekend with colleagues, friends and family. The past few months have been a whirlwind, so it was nice to reflect back and think of all the things I’m thankful for this year. 1. My home I’m so blessed and happy to be back […]

I Want to do Something Meaningful

I want to work hard for something I believe in. I do, though. Every day I work my butt off for things I believe in. I blog about things that I feel like matter, I work on campaigns that run on causes I care about and I wake up every morning and remind myself that […]
