Vancouver, Canada & Beyond.
I'm on a journey, and that means sharing my own personal stories and experiences. My goal is to be relatable, provide inspiration while being authentic. Whatever your lemons, we can do this together.
“Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself…” Coco Chanel Fashion historians suggest that the LBD (little black dress) originates from the 1920’s designs of Coco Chanel. Not shocking. The style was intended to be long-lasting, versatile, affordable, and widely accessible. Of course, to this day, Chanel designs are still considered timeless and are at […]
“Rejection is nothing more than a necessary step in the pursuit of success…” Bo Bennett IF YOU KNOW ME You would know I’ve had a love affair with Paris and everything relating to this fabulous city forever! Soooo when an opportunity arrived in my inbox recently to write for a well-known blog, in Paris, about […]
It’s here again, FALL. And, if you’re like me, you’re already searching for that new “IT” fall piece to elevate your wardrobe. I love the change in seasons, and even though we’re still enjoying mild temperatures, I can’t wait to wrap myself in something cozy. Jackets or blazers, as you will complete the outfit, refining […]
Have you ever wondered, if only I did “XYZ,” I would be so much happier? Or, you wished you continued your studies or applied for that dream job; perhaps it wasn’t the right timing, or you felt you weren’t good enough. Why do we tell ourselves that we can’t start something until we’re good at […]
Have you ever said no to something or someone because you were uncomfortable or afraid and then realized, shoot! Should you have at least given it a try? Putting yourself out there or tackling something new can be intimidating and sometimes scary! I’m not new to this. Facing your Fears is harder than you think. […]
Our trip to Rome was a last-minute decision. And honestly, if it weren’t for the convenient location of the train station near our villa, we probably wouldn’t have bothered. But unfortunately, neither of us was up for driving in Rome’s chaotic and congested streets. Total mayhem! So train, it is! Arriving at the central station, […]
We finally made it to Italy! Naturally, I had grandiose plans to write a weekly blog about our Italian adventures. Or, at the very least, write a brief story about each stunning hilltop town, vineyard or that amazing (insert a kajillion options) we visited that particular day. I envisioned myself poolside or sitting at a […]
As a result of our Italian trip being cancelled two and a half years ago due to the pandemic, we’re now FINALLY able to travel to Tuscany. However, with no direct flights to Florence from Vancouver, a stopover in Paris for four days is a bonus. Quite frankly, ANY excuse to land in Paris is […]
If you’re looking for new meaning in your life, are stressed, need help in love, or have lost your way, this might be what you need. Hakomi Method is an alternative therapy, a form of mindfulness-centred somatic (relating to the body, especially as distinct from the mind) psychotherapy. More simplified, it’s considered a journey toward […]
Just when you’ve exhausted one more meal on the BBQ, it’s time to change it up for slow-braised short ribs and truffle mashed potatoes. I can taste it now! Yum! Whether we’re ready for it, fall is on its way. However, I, for one, am inspired by the change in the seasons. With our latest […]
