    This is 32

    No one has been waiting for it but I am writing it anyways. One year after my break up, surviving COVID times and new beginnings. I did a round up post when I was about to turn thirty, which I just re-read and surprisingly I stand by my advice. I know it is only two years ago, but I really thought it would be cringeworthy . I still stand by my advice. The only thing I would change is aesthetic, my photo skills/retrieving stock photo has improved. Black Lives Matter Around the time of my birthday the black lives matters movement broke out. I felt like it was an inappropriate…

    Home Office Decor Ideas

    I am revealing how I maximized my small space to accommodate a home office set up Working from home is nothing new for me. I have been primarily a remote worker since 2017. Although a home office can have its perks, I got used to having the occasional work from home day and spending the majority of my time in the office. It was nice to have the separation between home and work. With everything that is going on in the world, it is not surprise that I am now confined to working from home. The first few weeks, I took over my dining table but it really is a…

    Summer Shopping List

    I can’t believe that August is just around the corner. Summer is by far my favourite season, it is no secret that I live for the beach. Most weekends I spend the majority of my time outside working on my tan. As a seasoned summer lover, I did a round up of all my essentials for summer 2020, especially because outside adventures seem to be the main source of entertainment right now. My Summer Essentials Hexagonal Flat Lenses A good dupe for the Ray Ban Hexagonal Flat Lenses with a way nicer price tag. These retail for under $20 and they are the perfect summer sunnies.

    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…
