Bell Let’s Talk Day

Eight years ago I had my first panic attack. I can remember it like it was yesterday. The inability to breath. The feeling that I was going to be physically sick. And the hot, uncontrollable, heavy tears – all while my mum remained on the phone with me trying to figure out what was going on. At first I didn’t recognize any of the above symptoms or understand what was happening to me. But after it happened repeatedly, again and again,…

Hummus that you would make and bring to a party and people will be all, “You made this yourself?” And you’ll be like, “What like it’s hard?” and life will be perfect, and…

Chickpea Smash

Ok guys, I apologize for the one photo, but I got a bunch of requests for this recipe when I posted it on Instagram that I just decided to share it ASAP. I love this recipe because it’s clean and healthy, and I can eat it while on my wild rose detox. It’s vegan, vegetarian and you can eat it as a meal in a bowl over a bed of rice or as a side with a protein like chicken breast…

Get Ready With Me – Episode #1

Ok guys, I did my first YouTube video for 2018! A quick Get Ready With Me (#GRWM) to show you what I do and use when getting ready AND to teach myself how to edit these damn videos. It honestly took my about five hours to get this situated and I think I need to graduate from iMovie to Adobe because iMovie was a serious pain and it crashed midway through my edit (thank god I saved the final video).…

The One with Phoebe’s Cookies

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! I whipped these chocolate chip cookies up over on my Instagram Stories but wanted to share the link here since so many of you DM’d me. Did you ever see the episode of Friends, “The One with Phoebe’s Cookies”? Basically Monica is trying to replicate Phoebe’s Grandmother’s famous cookies only to discover they’re actually just NESTLÉ® Toll House cookies. It is H I L A R I O U S and I highly recommend you watch it…

Kim Kardashian Barely There Makeup

Last week I needed to take a little break from the blog for some real, true me time. It was much needed and I’ll be writing up a longer post as to why it was so important…STAY TUNED! Now to the good stuff – I had the opportunity to get a full 1:1 makeup lesson from my amazing girlfriend, Emma Bitove. Emma just finished school in London, U.K. at the same school Charlotte Tilbury attended (just saying), so you know she…
