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.
I’m excited to be entertaining again, although I’m a bit rusty these days, so finding something easy and tasty to prepare is key. I love experimenting with new recipes; even better is making them up as I go along, adding my own special twist. Some of my most memorable meals are the ones inspired by […]
When I think of June, naturally, summer comes to mind, conjuring up many memories for me. With the season officially launched, I can’t help reminisce about those lazy days of summer spent at the beach, the smell of sunscreen and BBQ’s (oooyah), a chilled rosé, homemade potato salad, local strawberries, alfresco dining and the sweet […]
Savary Island is one of those dream destinations that everyone is desperately seeking but unsuccessful at finding. Well, I found it! It’s practically in my backyard (not exactly), which is an added bonus! Although I feel fortunate to have discovered this piece of paradise 12 years ago on a family vacation, I didn’t know much […]
Hi Everyone, I’m back! Oh my gosh! Were you wondering what the heck happened to me?! Well, I decided to take some time away from my writing to design my new I COVET website. What d’ya think?! I’m super excited about how it turned out. I know what you’re thinking. Have I recently completed a computer […]
Valentine’s day is a day dedicated to love. So yes, I’m stating the obvious. But, some may argue, why celebrate just one day? Expressing your love for someone should be shown in some form every day. Right? Yes, I agree, and I do. When you’re in a relationship, it’s easy to get caught up in […]
I have to admit; the thought of working with a life coach had me skeptical. I mean, why do I need one? We have our friends. Yes, friends. We are there for each other through thick and thin, lending an ear, for one thing, or another, giving constructive advice and cheering on those grand plans! […]
We are well into the new year, and for most of us, this is the ideal time for making plans and setting goals. I’m not big on resolutions, although, some would argue they are one and the same. I’ve had my fill of failed resolutions, which, in my opinion, are really just acknowledging one’s bad […]
Finally! We’ve made it to the other side, barely I might add. We’re saying bye-bye to one badass year. It was challenging. Surreal comes to mind, and if I could have, I would have hit CTRL+ALT+DEL to reboot and restart the new year sooner. I’m exhausted just thinking about everything we’ve postponed, cancelled, delayed, didn’t […]
Meet Nikki Baxendale, a photographer and artist extraordinaire. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing her for the past few years as an accomplished photographer. More recently, Nikki has launched herself as a new artist. Perhaps it was the lockdown due to Covid or desperately needing a new creative outlet? Nikki’s Instagram account suddenly became a […]
It’s officially December, and for the first time, I’m not panicked. What?! Instead, I’m trying to embrace the holiday season; honestly, what else have we got going on? It’s perfect timing. I think most of us need something to look forward to, 2020 has been a bust, definitely, one to put behind us once and […]
