It’s No Secret I Get Paid for Being an “Influencer”, But Here’s What I Want You to Know About it

Cat’s out of the bag: I earn money from posting sponsored content on my Instagram account and blog. Shocking. I’m sorry to sound so sarcastic, but I want to get real with you guys. I want to contribute to an open dialogue around sponsored posts and influencer marketing because it’s what I do for a living. It’s been a little over 3 months since I left my full-time job as a corporate lawyer of 9 years (!). I took the ultimate risk and decided to pursue my passion as a full-time blogger/content creator and entrepreneur – another shocking fact not…

How to Build a Fall Wardrobe with Only $100

September means back to school and, for a lot of people, back to work. It also signals the start of fall and with that, fall wardrobe shopping. I know, I know, everyone and their mother (especially fashion bloggers, like me) loses their mind over fall fashion – it means layering and ankle booties and moto jackets, etc.! Truth be told, previously other than for fall fashion, I’ve never gotten excited for autumn. I’ve explained in a prior blog post exactly why. And this year, even the fall wardrobe shopping isn’t getting me giddy like it used to because it just…

Celebrating Canada150 in Style with Upper Canada

Canada’s 150th birthday is just around the corner! I started my Canada150 celebrations a couple months ago with my trip to the Juno Awards in Ottawa. We are just a couple weeks shy now of July 1st, so it’s a good time to continue the Canadian pride – this time, with a new style post and ode to some of my favourite Canadian retailers. I’ll also be celebrating Canada150 with a new food post coming up on the blog next week – so stay tuned! It’s been a little while since my last style post, and since I decided to…

Same, Same, But Different

It’s the weekend, everyone, and I’m extra excited! As I type this blog post, I’m actually sitting on the #JunoExpress, a Via Rail train jam-packed with people heading to Ottawa for the Juno Awards!

What’s Old Is New Again

Hey friends! It was about time that I posted an OOTD, as it’s been a while! For today’s outfit, I’m featuring something old and something new…but nothing borrowed or blue (we’ll save those for the wedding day 😉 ). Of course, I’m excited to talk about what’s new on me (there are actually 2 things). But, I think it’s equally as important to draw your attention to what’s old: this Balmain x H&M jacket that I picked up in November of 2015, which I still swoon over. The quick backstory on this jacket is that I waited in line at…

4 Tips For Sticking to Your Goals in 2017

In my last blog post, I talked about the danger of making new year’s resolutions and the difference between goals and resolutions. I explained that it’s better to have goals, because they’re directed towards results, rather than being abstract thoughts or intentions. So, once you’ve considered what some of your goals (rather than resolutions) may be for 2017, here are my 4 simple tips on how you can actually stick to them: Make sure they’re realistic. Everyone is different, so set short-term and long-term goals that are within reach for you. If your goals are too idealistic, you’re setting yourself up…

The Danger with New Year’s Resolutions and Why You Should Avoid Them

Without fail, the ushering in of a new year brings with it a stream of new year’s resolutions! Gyms get filled, people sober up or go on detoxes, and so it goes. But, about a month or two later, this trend of people doing what’s really, really good for them and avoiding what’s really, really bad for them starts to taper off. Why? Because resolutions don’t last and aren’t the same as setting actual goals. Goals vs. Resolutions So, what’s the difference? A “resolution” is a firm decision or determination to do/not do something. A “goal” is the result or…

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

Well, looks like winter has reared its ugly head and we’ve been hit with a couple of major snowstorms over the last two weeks. Even though I was really hoping (actually, praying) for a NON-white Christmas (does that make me sound like a scrooge?), I think the white stuff is finally here to stay! Sometimes I swear that I was born on the wrong continent because my body really isn’t made for this weather! When it’s winter, I literally feel the chill deep down in my bones, and I avoid being outside and any type of outdoor activity like the…

Why I’ve Given up Drinking Until the New Year

Truth be told, I have a love-hate relationship with alcohol. I’ve been known to enjoy a nice glass (or three) of wine every now and then; and although I’ve been consuming alcohol for more than a decade, I still can’t seem to strike the right balance. So, starting on November 5th, I decided to kick drinking to the curb until the new year, and here are the reasons why… Physical Health First and foremost, I promised myself that I would get back to my ideal weight before the end of the year. Food blogging has taken a toll on my…
