SUMMERTIME

Summer is basically over, and I want to cry. I have had a pretty great summer. Sorry if that sounded brag-y, but it’s true! Most of my summer was spent either in water, or somewhere water-adjacent, which to me, is basically paradise—even if said water is in the local, public swimming pool. I can’t really […]

My former classmate Arti tweeted out an interesting idea: Heading into the #noshopping2018 challenge, I wrote out all the rules: A simple way to save money in […]

2017

What a year it has been! This year feels like a complete blur, and I wasn’t even that drunk for most of it! It’s almost New Year’s Eve, so naturally I’ve taken to reflecting on 2017. The past year has been kind of a rollercoaster. If you’ve been on the ride with me, then you […]

AND, GO!

You guys, I did something terrifying. I just signed up for a HALF MARATHON. For those of you who don’t know, a half marathon is about 21km. Personally, I’ve never run farther that 15km at any given time, and I only ran that 15km once — with breaks. I was persuaded by some friends to […]

COLD SHOULDER

This was the first day in 2017 that I was able to sit on a patio, sans jacket, and more importantly, sans sleeves! It was only for five minutes, bit it was still wonderful. I often joke about how I’m like a flower, in that I thrive in sunlight. In some ways, I really do […]

GET IT WHERE YOU CAN

I woke up on the wrong side of the bed the other day, so I employed the help of one of my favourite little black dresses and eyeliner to cheer me up. It’s like I said above: “Get it where you can.” That’s my way of saying, just do what you have to do to […]

"SMILE, YOU’RE ON CAMERA"

Years ago,  I was on the streetcar with my best friend Amanda, and as we passed by the financial district, we noticed all of the corporate ladies of King St. and Bay St. speed-walking to their respective offices wearing their pencil skirts and comfortable sneakers. I’m almost positive we laughed at them. Now look at […]

THROWBACK

Life’s a beach. No no, hear me out, I’m going somewhere with this. Having worked at a lingerie store for a number of years, I’ve encountered all types of people, all with their own unique set of neuroses and insecurities. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve been asked for my opinion about how […]

HIGH NOON

Thankful for natural light—it can make you look tanned even if your skin’s severely lacking in the colour department. The sun’s out again. Just yesterday I was taking about chilly weather, and today, I’m out in a tank top. I was especially excited for today’s weather, because I had the day off, and it meant […]
