Taking Stock: January

So I’ve hit a little creative dry spell. Being in university and having truckloads of readings to do every week takes up a lot of time and energy so very little is left over for blogging. I was making a list of a few ideas but everything that I came up with requires at least…

10 Ways to Escape the Seasonal Blues

Winter is one of my favourite seasons. In November and December, I love the cold weather. The snow, the wind, the grey skies… I love it all. Well, that is until the holidays are over. Once Christmas and New Years Eve have passed, I wish the gloomy weather and short days would go with it….

My Current Lush Favourites

If you know me, then you know I have a bit of a Lush addiction. Okay, maybe a major addiction. Every time I walk by Lush, I just HAVE to go in and take a look around, and I seldom come out empty handed. In fact, the people who work at my local lush know…

Throwback Thursday: Photographs

When I’ve got some free time, I love to put on the kettle and make some tea, and sit down with a box of Oreos and pull out the big boxes of photos we have stored in the basement. I could go through those boxes for hours upon hours. Old photos mean a lot to me…

Hawai’i 2017

ALOHA A PAU! If you know me, then you know that Hawai’i is one of my favourite places in the world. Both my family and I love going there because of its amazing culture, incredible beaches and of course the most welcoming people in the United States. Sometimes I completely forget that it’s a US state…

Taiwan 2017

My parents took me to Taiwan for 4 days and, I am lucky and have been able to set foot in many beautiful places, but it was one of the best experiences I have ever had… like it’s in the top 3. This was my first time in Asia and my expectations were far surpassed….

Passenger in Montréal

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017 will be a day I will never forget, for three main reasons. I got to see The Paper Kites and I’ve been a fan of theirs for such a long time and I never thought I’d be able to see them live. Passenger is just… oh my goodness. He is a…

Living Intentions for 2018

I have never really been big on resolutions. Actually, I don’t think I have ever been able to maintain any resolutions. For the most part, the majority of my resolutions involve depriving myself of things or telling myself that I have to stop doing something as a means of breaking old habits. In the past,…

Reflecting on 2017

Last year when I wrote my reflection post on 2016 I started off by stating that 2016 was a “shitty year for 95% of the habitants of the earth” and I think that statement is still very much relevant when looking back on 2017. 2017 was an absolute fucking shit storm. I am not even…

Highlights of Summer 2017

As summer comes to an end and the reality of going back to school sinks in, I am once again amazed at how quickly the past 4 months have gone! It seems like every year the summers go by quicker and the school year goes by slower. I honestly feel as though I’ve blinked and the…

This Modern Love

One of my favourite creators named Will Darbyshire released a couple weeks ago (20/01/2018 update: I transferred all my posts from Wix to WordPress so this is severely outdated, however, I’m keeping that sentence the way it is). His book is different compared to most “Youtuber” books that are out on the market. It’s not an…
