Aging out of Friendships

I’ll be 30 this fall, that feels like a big deal, at least it does to me – it’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I LOVE birthdays, I can get a little extra when it comes to celebrating and gifting. As I approach the end of my twenties, I find myself thinking about what the past decade…

Snorkelling, Sailing & Paddleboards. Oh, my!

When you’re swimming in the pool bar with a fresh (and oh so delicious) piña colada from a smiling bartender, surrounded by beautiful people who you’ve just met but already feel like your best friends; it can feel impossible to get up and force yourself to do something other than relax. But when there are so many activities (not those ones!)…

The Valentine’s Day Video

I once described myself as, the girl who falls in love, because I was and I still am. I love falling in love; the butterflies, the stolen kisses but the very first time he says, “I love you.” that is what I live for. So when my friend shared this video with me from the lovely folks at BizMedia I felt…

#LoveAHeart 4

It’s almost here, #LoveAHeart 4! I never could have imagined that an event that started as an idea in a coffee shop would last four years and raise more than $30,000.00 for The Heart & Stroke Foundation. It’s been an amazing ride and I can only hope that it lasts for many, many more years. This year, as always, we’ll…

Shiny Things

Jewellery is one of my favourite things; I don’t have much that I wear daily aside from my claddagh ring  and a seashell necklace that I bought off Etsy, because I love the ocean, but last month I won a bracelet on the Jeff Morrison Fine Jewellery Facebook page. Today my brand new favourite shiny thing arrived, the piece is…

Karma isn’t Just for Redditors

For those of you that know me well, you know how sick my mum has been and you probably know how upset I’ve been that I can’t see her right now having JUST started a new job and being in a tight financial position due to a month of funemployment. So I’ve been worried about my mum A LOT but…

Friend of a Friend Matchmaking

Before I met Boyfriend I tried the online dating thing, only for a bit, and I never found anyone that was worth keeping around, ever. This isn’t to say that online dating doesn’t work because I actually know a lovely couple that met on e-harmony who just celebrated their 1 year anniversary AS A MARRIED COUPLE; so online dating can…

Dear Mum…

Dear Mum, I won’t be home on Mother’s Day this year, I won’t even be in the country because I’ll be flying off to a new opportunity an opportunity that wouldn’t ever have been possible without your unwavering faith and support. I want to thank you, no I mean really thank you, from the time I was born you’ve told…

View the Pizza

Boyfriend and I were supposed to head off on a romantic weekend on Friday courtesy of Charming Media and Viamede Resort – that isn’t quite what happened though. Due to an issue with Discount Car and Truck Rental we weren’t able to get our rental Friday night and we didn’t make it to the resort – don’t worry though we’re…
