Oh shit…

  par·a·site /ˈperəˌsīt/ noun     An organism that lives in or on an organism of another species (its host) and benefits by deriving nutrients at the other’s expense. Oh god, I’m pregnant. I would be lying if I said that seeing those two lines didn’t completely freak me out. To be quite honest, I […]

BFFs

I had an extra special guest join me the other day. My “brother-in-law” Carter! Kane and I were dog-sitting over the weekend, but I also had to attend a food festival for work, so Carter and I went on a bit of an adventure. Before we headed out, I wanted to document my outfit, for […]

BACK TO SCHOOL

Class is in session. Or something like that. Okay, so two things: 1. Say hello to the (partial) view from our new apartment! 2. I got a new job! In addition to my social media gig(s), I am now also a part-time instructor at Humber College. I can’t even tell you how cool this is, […]

"TAN ALMOST EVERYWHERE. JAN, ALMOST EVERYWHERE."

Gold star to anyone who knows the reference. I’ve just gotten back from the cottage (Thanks, Vanessa!) and oh my goodness, am I ever recharged! Much to my (sometimes) dismay, I’ve become one of those people who “CANNOT” be without their phone. As I work in social media, and am a freelancer to boot, it’s […]

#LOLEWHITETOUR

I was feeling very zen. And then, just before our yoga session was over, lightning was casually flashing in the distance. Yikes. The Lole White Tour is an annual event that celebrates peace, meditation, and yoga—all of which I have been in desperate need of, because stress. I was invited to attend this year, and I […]

THE WEDDING LOOK: INSPO

When you plan a wedding in FIVE days, figuring out what to wear can be a bit of a challenge. Quite certain I’ve mentioned this before, but I didn’t have a Pinterest board for wedding inspiration/looks/etc. before Kane and I got engaged. When we started planning our “big wedding,” I stumbled upon a dress online […]

APRIL 9, 2018.

They’re here! They’re here! As promised, here are some of the photos from our spur-of-the-moment nuptials. That’s still kind of crazy to say/think about, because I really didn’t think we had it in us to be THIS spontaneous and romantic in this way, but here we are! Just wanna quickly send a H-U-G-E shoutout to […]

"RINSTA" VS. "FINSTA"

I finally did it. I deleted my private account. On May 9, 2011, I downloaded an app called “Instagram.” People said it was going to be the next big thing, and while I was skeptical, I was intrigued. The very first photo I ever posted on Instagram. Since then, Instagram has evolved and become this […]

MAY RECAP: #NOSHOPPING2018

I’ve got to tell you, this isn’t going well. It started with the wedding, and then came Spring—the season that I absolutely knew would be the hardest for me. When the weather gets warmer, I get excited and want to wear flow dresses, fun sandals, etc. It’s as if I have a boho alter-ego who […]
