    New Moon Ritual

    An easy guide to performing your own new moon ritual and why it is important One of my resolutions in 2019 was to get more personal on my blog. I shared my break up, my struggles with figuring out my career and my uncomfortable dating moments. It only seemed like a natural progression, that I share my shameful and humourous obsessions with astrology, psychics, and tarot card readings. So, I confess that I look up my prospective partners on MyLoveCal, I check my Costars daily and I perform new moon rituals. I get made fun of for it, I believe everything happens for a reason and that things always work…

    Staying Healthy in Quarantine

    All my tips and tricks to stay active and healthy during COVID-19 Times I was doing barre classes every day, biking anywhere I needed to go and I intermittent fasting so I thought for sure I was nailing my COVID-19 routine. I was wrong, I went to put on my levis shorts from last summer and man were they tight! I think I may have gotten a little too relaxed with my diet and my drinking habits. Whoops! The last few weeks, I have been tightening things up so hopefully, when they let us all out, I will still fit in the majority of my clothes comfortably. Morning Routine Having…

    Jamaica – Port Antonio

    It is very rare that someone will guess my ethnicity correctly, but if you are new here, my mom is Jamaican and my dad is Canadian. Jamaica has been the location of many family vacations and even though my mom would rather go anywhere else, my dad manages to convince her to go back every four to five years. When people ask me about Jamaica, I am very transparent with them. Jamaica is beautiful, the food is amazing and the people are very friendly, however from the Westcoast the flight is pretty long and for a beach vacation there are places that are way easier to get to. Full disclosure:…

    My Top Five Dating Disasters

    The wild ride of dating apps and all the entertaining but terribly wrong dates I have been on. My dating journey has been interesting, to say the least. I do have a lot of guilt, somehow when you are in your twenties your friends and family could care less about who you are dating, but once you hit thirty the pressure is on, to put yourself out there and actually make an effort. And when I say effort, I mean effort. Swiping, texting for months, scheduling dates, rescheduling dates, fitting them into your schedule and then doing the whole process all over again. Dating is a full-time job and some…

    Social Distancing: 30 ways to occupy your time

    I will be the first to admit that it is my nature to minimize, so when I first heard about COVID-19, I wasn’t taking it seriously. Fast-forward literally like three days later, and I am on board with total lockdown. Although, I am usually a busy body with little to no downtime, being asked to stay home has almost made me resent the much needed time to relax, recharge and do my best not to share any germs. I thought I would share my suggestions for beating cabin fever. Spring cleaning – organize your closet, post old clothes on Poshmark or empty out your junk drawers. I always feel good…

    Beauty: These are a Few of My Favourite Things

    “Seasons change and our love went cold” With the change of the seasons, I have to adjust my daily beauty regime; the winter months bring pale dry dull skin and subdued colours, so hot right? In the fall I had posted my go-to skin products, so I thought I would do a round-up of all the products I am loving this winter. My winter beauty regime requires a little bit more upkeep; I don’t feel like myself unless I have a natural sun-kissed glow and bright radiant complexion (at least that is the goal). A Touch Of Colour I have been experimenting with sunless tanners for the face and I…

    Goal Setting for 2020

    What a year! I would like to say that 2019 was rough, but it has really been a transformative year. It was a struggle but I have come out of it stronger and I continue to learn and grow from all my experiences. I really wanted to take the time to celebrate my wins of 2019, my tough life lessons and what I need to take into account for the following year. 2019 Recap I was a little bit worried when I went to read over my goals from last year, but I was pleasantly surprised. As I look back on 2019, it may have felt traumatic but I was…

    What Do I Want to Be When I Grow up

    Identity is an interesting concept, we use our career or our path as the base of our existence, we are lawyers, caretakers, electricians, dentists, stylist, business owners or entrepreneurs. It is a strange such a large part of our identity is wrapped up in what we do to earn the money we need to sustain our lives, or earning a living. As a child, I always thought that the adults had it all figured out. They don’t struggle with major life decisions and they have this secret handbook that just tells them exactly what they need to do. It wasn’t until I became an adult that I realized, no one…

    Cheating: Everything You Need To Hear

    This is a post I struggled to write. It felt almost too personal, like airing my dirty laundry, however I have done nothing wrong, so why should I feel ashamed to share what I went through…   I hold myself accountable for my actions and I try not to do things that I am ashamed of. When I do make a mistake, I take ownership of my actions; I tend to hold other people in my life to the same standard. I spent a lot of time protecting a partner that had no interest in protecting me.    After talking to some of my girlfriends who have been put in…

    Fall Capsule Wardrobe

    Summer is my jam. I love sundresses and shorts and maxi dresses; I have way too much clothes for the three to four-month stint that I get once a year. Fall on the other hand is not exactly my preferred season to dress for. I have a love/hate relationship with it. I love all the pretty colours of the changing season, I love hot coffee on a crisp day and knitted sweaters, but I grimace the first day I have to slither back into my jeans after a long summer of sunkissed skin and short shorts. There is more layering involved and fall clothes are more function than fashion. It…
