35 Lessons In 35 Years

35 Lessons In 35 Years

Chapter 35. A brand new page, in a brand new chapter. I can't say that I'm happy to see 34 end; she was good to me - as was 33. In all honesty, so far the thirties are turning out to be my favourite. Not because they've necessarily been the easiest, but they have left [...]

Spring Reading List – Going Against ‘The Rules’

Spring Reading List – Going Against ‘The Rules’

When I switched my major to English, I was so ignorant to the unwritten rule. I mean, it's not like you were handed a memo . . . I was the girl who brought a store bought dessert to the party. The one who ate carbs and enjoyed a diet soda without shame. The one [...]

Spring Fashion Favourites

Spring Fashion Favourites

I need shares in H&M. No joke! I'm absolutely in love with their new spring arrivals and despite 2020s lock-down status, I'm excited to refresh my wardrobe. Over the last two years, I've started to invest in my closet - straying away from following trends and opting instead to buy solid staples and it's been [...]

Quick And Easy Beef And Barley Soup

Quick And Easy Beef And Barley Soup

There's no better comfort food than homemade soup. It's quick and easy and can be light or hearty - it's literally the most diverse food you can imagine, incredibly budget friendly, and is something you can enjoy year-round. I used to meal plan and prep every Sunday and without fail, there was a pot of [...]

Two Year Stop Gap

Two Year Stop Gap

Almost two years. Twenty months. That's how long it's been since I posted anything; since I wrote anything that was just for me - in my space. I'm still not sure if I lost my voice, or purposely silenced it. I think it was honestly a combination of both. I signed out of my social [...]

I Must Be Crazy

It was several weeks ago that I shot a message to my soon-to-be sister-in-law asking if she was up for trying her hand at Chase the Ace.  For those of you who aren't familiar with the game, here's how it works.  You purchase tickets, which get dumped into a large container or drum.  Once ticket [...]

One Of My Favourite Toys

One Of My Favourite Toys

With smart phones, compact cameras, and access to DSLRs - we are never without a way to snap a photo of whatever strikes our fancy.  As a child who grew up sneaking her mother's 110 camera to take photos of random things around the house, I can't deny my love of all things photography.  And [...]

Where I’ve Been

Where I’ve Been

Well hello there! Many of you have been checking in on a daily basis, no doubt wondering where in the world I had disappeared to.  On May 26th, Vic and I were involved in a rear-end collision.  We were headed to grab a little pizza I had called in for supper and while stopped at [...]

Goodbye 31; Thank You.

Goodbye 31; Thank You.

As I get ready to close the door on 31, I can't help but pause and wonder how I managed to keep putting one foot in front of the other some days.  It was a hard year, but it was one of exponential personal growth. It was the year I learned that my mental health [...]

NHL Draft 2017

I not only live in a country that eat, sleeps, and breathes everything hockey - but I'm also surrounded by a family who are all completely hockey crazed. So what does a girl to do when she doesn't really share the love? Suck it up like a true princess, that's what. We have a subscription [...]
