A Self Love Journey Gone Too Far

Three years ago, I stopped washing my hair every day. I knew I needed to let my hair learn how to control it’s oils and I needed to take care of it. It got to the point where I was washing my hair once a week on average. Almost two years ago I embarked on […]

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 […]

The Issue with the Hustle

Hustling is never seeing your family, it’s coming home to a dark quiet house in the middle of the night and microwaving leftovers for dinner. 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 […]

You’re Doing Enough 

You’re doing great. I know it feels like sometimes you should be doing so much more, but probably not. The past week since getting home has been stupid busy for me, and I keep feeling like I should be taking on more in all aspects of my life. The reality of it is, I barely […]

The Comfort of Coming Home

I’m back in Vancouver, and my heart is calm. Being home has absolutely not been traditionally relaxing, but emotionally and spiritually my soul has found comfort.

This period of my life has been full of changes, from moving to not moving and back and forth I have been making adjustment after adjustment until landing […]

Taking my Hands off the Wheel 

I’m a planner, I’ve always been a planner. I like everything in my life to be laid out and organized in just a certain way. I like knowing what’s next and having a timeline for everything. Over the past month, I have not been able to have control over every any aspect of my life. […]

Being my Own Best Friend

I absolutely adore my friends, as an only child, I have tended to foster friendships that are deep and loving in a sense that my friends are the siblings I didn’t have growing up. That being said, growing up I spent a lot of time by myself. I had to learn how to play alone, […]

We’re leaving Vancouver!

I felt like now was a good time to sit down and talk to you about what’s going on. I know that lately I haven’t been keeping you up to date on the happenings of my life, and I know that’s the only reason some of you keep up to date on my blog. Partially […]

the (terrifying) freedom to do what makes you happy.

I feel like for the first time in my life I am free to make a decision for myself to do what makes me happy. This however, is completely false, as I have always had this freedom – I just chose not to believe it. I have never been in a position where I had […]
