Thank you for stopping by and taking a look at my lifestyle blog. Originally my intention was to write a travel blog but it has transformed along the way; Not all of us are designed/able to live the nomad lifestyle. My life is multifaceted so I tend to write about my personal experiences, the milestones I am going through in life and the tips and tricks I learned along the way. Travel is my main passion but I am also very focused on my career.
As a Marketing Professional, I love the creative freedom that my blog give me to express myself. Hopefully, some of my posts will resonate with you, I try to cater to my fellow millennials with life and career insights, travel advice, recipes, style guides and of course whatever is trending my life at the moment.
Over the years, I have really transformed my content to be an opportunity to form an online community and have very transparent discussions about the trials and tribulations I face in my life. With the recent development of the BLM really coming to the forefront of everyone’s minds I feel responsible to share my perspective as a POC. Growing up and being mixed, my mom is Jamaican and my dad is Canadian, I struggled to find my identity and it wasn’t until I was in my twenties that I saw people like me in mainstream media. I hope to act as a resource and an online community to others that may face the same challenges that I do.
I am originally from Ottawa, Ontario, I grew up in Kelowna, BC, and I currently reside in Vancouver, BC. I try to mix in some local content, Kelowna is obviously a place that is close to my heart. I love everything that the West Coast has to offer and I would love to connect with other Vancouver lifestyle bloggers.
Why I Decided to Start a Blog
Reading and writing has always been my first love. Every since I was a child, I would go on weekly trips to the library with my mom and pick up a new set of reading material. When I was in middle school I read The Hobbit and I was convinced that I would write literature for a living. What you thought you would be when you grow up does not always end up being where you end up. Also, I am slowly learning that growing up is variable not a constant. I grow and evolve every single day.
After graduating from university, my reading suddenly came to a halt. I decided that I did not want to stop learning and expanding my skillset, so I decided that I should start writing again. I wanted my blog to be a reflection of me, and share my major passions in life. Writing a personal blog is hard because it puts your personal life on display. I find it very difficult to be fully exposed for the whole internet to read ( it is also nerve-racking because you never know who is reading). I do know that I relate best to writing that has a vulnerable quality to it, so I am trying my best to cover topics that I think others will be interested in and sharing tidbits of my everyday life.
More About Me
I would describe myself as a fitness fanatic with an aggressive sweet tooth. I love eating, experimenting with new recipes and of rouse checking out new restaurants. I also enjoy being active and being outside. I have tried everything from bouldering to stand-up paddleboarding. My paradise would be spending the majority of my time outside, hopefully basking in the sun. For now, I will take Raincouver’s mild climate and the occasional sunny day. I am a tad on the organized side, some say OCD, I prefer prepared. I am definitely a planner. Throughout the years, I have slowly become more laid back. I like to share my experiences and let you in on some of my insider tips. Even if I spend hours researching to prepare for something, I find that personal experiences are the best guide.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you enjoy following my journey!
