Why I feel that Feminism is a Self Limiting Attitude

Let’s Talk Feminism So, I’m really not one to publicly debate controversial subjects…because quite frankly…the contentious banter kills my zen. That said…I feel that this topic is worth discussing. An article popped up in my feed today entitled, “Dear Men, So you think want a strong, independent woman?” So, of course…it piqued my interest. According…

A Little Leopard Goes a Long Way

For years now, Leopard print and I have had a love-hate relationship. In my opinion, there’s a very fine line between leopard on trend and over the top tacky. Now before any leopard lover gets offended, this is merely my opinion, and when it comes to fashion – you do you honey! So, if sporting…

Date Night Wardrobe Selection

I knew the moment I slipped my naked foot into these supple leather ankle booties from The Frye Company that they were coming home with me. ❤️

A Perfect Everyday Table Setting that won’t break the bank.

Rainy summer weekends have the incredible ability to evoke a sense of nostalgia that can’t be ignored. Since leaving Ottawa, and my position with Ottawa Life Magazine as the Home & Design Editor, I’ve been somewhat preoccupied with other things. However, while rummaging through my vintage steamer trunk of decor items, I realized just how…

My Nails Are Ombré, My Hair is Balayage

I haven’t coloured my hair in years because I really can’t stand the look, nor maintenance involved with regrowth. So I decided to go ‘au natural’ for the past several years…until today that is. Since I’m pretty picky when it comes to my hair, I often have trouble finding a stylist that I like. That…

Are you looking for high end designer consignment online including Prada, Gucci, Chanel or Christian Louboutin just to name a few?

Let’s Talk Screen Time and Designer Frames

As a Digital Marketing professional, I obviously spend a fair amount of my time working on my computer or smart phone.  So…when Apple released the new Screen Time App with iOS12 in December, I became acutely aware of just how much time I am spending online. For those of you unaware, the Screen Time App…

The First Date – What to Wear

Alright…it’s mid-November, we’ve been flirting online for about a week now since matching on Bumble, so now it’s time we actually meet. What the hell am I going to wear?! Normally, I don’t stress about this too much, usually it’s a quick coffee date to see if there’s any actual chemistry, but this one was…

Au Natural…I Adore You

I love the idea of the “additional hydration” that sports drinks have to offer but do not like all the added sugar, unnecessary levels of sodium and calories. Don’t get me wrong, I am sure it is not terrible if you are burning it off running a marathon but I typically do not burn that…

Kim Ronzoni’s Shrimp Pho

Pho (pronounced “fuh”) is considered the national dish of Vietnam. Typically made with beef or chicken bones that have been simmered a long time with various aromatics to create a rich savoury broth. My Vietnamese-inspired version is a simple and delicious take on this soup and just as comforting and filling. A restaurant quality dish…
