2nd Annual Inflatable Day

It all started last year when my parents invited my friends and I down for a weekend by the pool in August. We showed up after buying out half of the liquor store and to our complete surprise, a massive inflatable obstacle course was on our front lawn for the rest of our elderly neighbourhood …

Party Planning Committee

Recently we had a birthday party for my roommate, now it wasn’t our first party at our apartment, but it was our first *themed* party. There are different levels of effort involved, definitely more so with a themed party. The birthday girl wanted a Luau beach themed party, and thats what she received. If you’ve …

Realtalk Retail

Since the dawn of time, there have been sectors of the employment world which  people try to avoid like the plague. Food service and retail alike have been given a bad name, not to say that they don’t absolutely deserve it, but there aren’t many people that will rush to defend it either. And don’t …

Our First D8

Christian and I are about to celebrate four, long years together in August, and in honour of that I thought I would tell the story of our first date. Not to be confused with our first mini date where we went for ice cream and he “forgot” his wallet and I paid (nothing wrong with …

Snakes on a Boat

One thing about me that has never changed, practically since I was born, is my ultimate fear of snakes. I have had nightmares about snakes since I was 0 years old. I probably even dreamt about them the night I was conceived. They are the world’s most terrifying and useless creature and also, ugly. Every …

My Drunk Anonymous Friends

I thought it would be quite entertaining to share a bunch of hilarious mini drunk stories from over the years. No names will be mentioned because of course everyone is a professional something or other now. So, will I write about you, or can you guess which ones were actually just me? - The time …

Advice to My 23 Year Old Self…or Anyone

A friend requested I write about what advice I would have given to my slightly younger self (yes, I can take requests!). This is an accumulation of some of my experiences, and trust me, I’m sure I could write another one of these in about a year. Instagram Is Not Real Life Falling into the …

Bawling for Bald

Ever since I can remember I’ve hated hair cuts. Growing up, every time my crush would get a haircut immediately my crush was cut short, over, done, see you never. And for the past four years I haven’t had to worry about that, my BF has had the same hair style and I have always …

(Almost) Fired for Forgetfulness

Back when I first started my job, I was thrown into the world of social media marketing at work. I had no idea what to really expect, other than the fact that I’d get some cool pictures out of the experience. Monthly we would plan, style and execute shoots that ended up on the country’s …

Dirty Girls

Months back my Mom and sister committed to an all girls mud run, and usually this is something I would completely tear apart, but I decided to join them. Of course me joining them was infinitely more for the fear of missing out on a bonding experience that my mom and sister would have without …
