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.
With our Italian trip cancelled two and a half years ago due to the pandemic, we’re now FINALLY able to travel to Tuscany. But, with no direct flights available to Florence from Vancouver, a stopover in Paris for four days is a bonus. Quite frankly, ANY excuse to land in Paris is good enough for […]
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 […]
These are unprecedented times. It’s been a long road, and we’re finally beginning to feel the effects of a pandemic nearing its ugly end. So while life is starting to get back to something resembling normal, we hold our breath and shudder at the possibility of WWIII? It’s hard to stay focused on the day-to-day, […]
I love jewellery, especially the type that SPARKLES, so why do we wait for someone else to buy it for us? My affair with jewellery started waaay back when I was a little girl sitting in the dentist’s chair, which was my worst nightmare. I hated the dentist, BUT he always let me choose a […]
A new year is upon us, prompting us to reflect on this past year (it went in a blink of an eye) and setting intentions going forward. Technically, January is the FRESH start to the new year. It means opening the door to new beginnings and closing the door to useless shit that serves no […]
They say the kitchen is the heart of the home, while that may be true, my heart wasn’t excited about my ho-hum kitchen. That said, It wasn’t a horrible kitchen. In fact, it served a purpose for five years while I contemplated its fate. The design was probably very “of the moment” when built 12 […]
Alas, the New Year has arrived, and so far, it’s feeling remarkably similar to its counterpart, especially when it comes to life during a pandemic. So, yes, we’re still wearing masks (so done with them), dealing with yet another variant and hopefully getting our boosters (I got mine yesterday). It’s shocking, and I can’t believe […]
It’s 5 a.m., ugh! I can hear my neighbour’s young children bouncing down the stairs next door and quickly realize the “why” of my early morning wakeup. Santa, aka the big guy, must have arrived, which put a smile on my face and reminded me of my young family’s Christmas pasts. The rule in our […]
A breakup of any kind is difficult, period. This past summer marks five years of living independently, aka, life after divorce, giving me pause as I reflect on how far I’ve come and where I’ve landed. When my marriage ended, I couldn’t have imagined what my future would look like, let alone the following week. […]
I’m in a funk. The definition; avoiding (a task or thing) out of fear or just not knowing how to do something or where to begin. Yep! Totally me, avoid, avoid, avoid. That’s not to say it’s a bad thing. Learning something new through experiences or studies is a process; knowledge opens our minds to […]
