Being Vulnerable Shows Strength

Vulnerability is something so many of us shy away from. When really it is an important part of human connection. Being vulnerable allows us to put ourselves out there and receive the help or guidance which we desire. Society has unfortunately…

This is Only the Beginning..

2 Week check in: Well, these past two weeks have been an absolute roller coaster (I am ready to get off anytime now, thanks). However, I am thrilled to see how many people have reached out and asked me questions about why I decided to go off the pill.

Time to Ditch the Pill!

Whaaaat? Thats right, I am finally free from that itty bitty pill that ruins our lives. You know, the one that toys with your moods, causes weight gain and decides exactly when you will get your period.

I chose to go to the breakfast, and I simply chose not eat because although I appreciated the gesture from our boss and thought it would be nice to socialize, I didn’t want to eat what was being provided.

A Blissful Day

This week I booked off some time to study & write my exams (which I aced by the way! Yay!) and with this time off a friend suggested I go check out the Scandinave Spa.

Our taste buds evolve and sometimes you assume you dislike something just because of the way it was made or presented to you the first time.

Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a holiday I truly look forward to each year! With the leaves changing, it is an absolutely beautiful 3 hour scenic drive 'home' to see my family. As I sit here in the passenger seat mesmerized by all the magical colours around me, I find myself feeling grateful for all that I have experienced this year!

Creamy Avo “Pasta”

After posting a picture of my spiralized zucchini on Facebook, I had an overwhelming amount of interest in recipes! This is something I have been making for the past several years and had no idea that most people had never tried it!
