Oh, the most wonderful time of the year……..flu season!

Even if you don’t get the flu, it seems like everyone is under the weather right about now. This time last year, I managed to catch some crazy cold during the run of my fall show. My voice disappeared, I felt like absolute trash, and didn’t get better for weeks. It was a nightmare, and ever since then, I have been making changes to my life to ensure that I avoid illness at all costs.

I mentioned last week that I went to see a naturopath, and I am SO CONFIDENT that she is the reason I’ve avoided a cold so far (knock on wood). I wanted to find new ways to manage my asthma and allergies, and she totally came through. I learned that my various medications have been depleting me of nutrients, which in turn made my already dramatic immune system have an absolute meltdown. She started me on a few different supplements to replenish nutrients as well as improve my immunity, energy and respiratory health. I started on this regimen in September and since then have felt the healthiest I’ve felt in years!

Moral of the story – my first tip is to seek help if your health isn’t at its best! … View Post

Happy freaking Friday!!!

This week has been a WEEK. I was in tech for my play (we opened! Yay!) which means I went to work all day and then went to the theatre to rehearse all night…I haven’t seen Stefan’s face in what feels like eternity. Sorry Stef! Let’s just say I am SO excited to sleep in tomorrow and finally get some laundry done. Oh, and eat something not sold at Freshii or Starbucks.

Shockingly, I found a moment to shoot some photos with my sister and give them the ol’ Lightroom treatment! I’ve been doing a little bit too much shopping lately (oops) and have so many fun things in my closet that I want to share with you.

(PS, thank God it’s Black Friday weekend…..a lot of these things are on sale!)… View Post

Why hello there!

Man does it feel good to be back. I took a break for a hot second – kind of by accident, I didn’t realize how long it had been since I had sat down and done something with my blog. Kind of funny that my last post was about being busy, eh? I have been just that…BUSY.

Maybe I’ll do a quick little update later this week on what I’ve been up to. To quickly recap the past few months: my sister got married (AHHH),  I spent a weekend in New York, I have been eyes deep in rehearsals (we open this week!), I finally got my health under control (NATUROPATHY. I’ll blog about it.), and I’ve been bopping around doing pretty much everything other than blogging. Things haven’t quite slowed down, but I missed this too much to wait any longer!

To ease back into this whole blogging thing, I wanted to tell you about another change from the past few months…MY SKIN. I found a product that has totally upped my skincare game, and it’s all thanks to my sister Nikki. They rave about this brand The Ordinary constantly, and after seeing it all over Facebook (shout out to Bunz Makeup Zone), I decided to give one of their top rated products a go.… View Post

Happy Friday!

Can you believe it’s already Labour Day weekend? We’re celebrating Stefan’s birthday this weekend (Happy Birthday love!!!) and will do our best to spend time outside before fall officially hits. Because once September kicks in, it’s time for my most used phrase…

“I can’t. I’m busy.”

Am I the only one who overbooks themselves x1000? On top of my 9-5 (which is really so much more), I have so little time to fit so much in. My blog; rehearsals; exercise; cleaning; voice lessons; tap class; wedding planning; dinner with friends; date night with Stef; alone time; the list goes on and on!… View Post

Guys! FALL IS PRACTICALLY HERE. I’m wearing jeans today and am freezing my butt off. Where did summer go?!

Now that my long awaited weekend trip to Chicago is over, it really feels like summer has come to a close…it’s a bummer, but looking back, I’ve had a blast! One of my favourite parts of blogging and social media is the act of recording memories. I can scroll back to my posts from the past few months and reminisce on the experiences I’ve had (and remind myself that I did in fact have a fun summer, despite the seemingly constant rain & clouds).… View Post

A few weeks ago, the most blessed day occurred.

GLOSSIER STARTED SHIPPING TO CANADA.

I had been waiting for this moment for FAR too long. I was taunted by bloggers, YouTubers, and American friends alike. I was resigned to the fact that this magical brand would never be available to me, a simple Canadian makeup and skincare lover.

All jokes aside, I was SO stoked to see that Glossier made its way to the great white north! There were products that I had always wanted to try – face masks and Boy Brow in particular – and newer additions that I couldn’t help but add to my cart.… View Post
