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 …

Life with an (Un)Fashionable BF

I am very lucky to be in a happy relationship with my best friend (although he refuses to call me his). He is thoughtful, kind, funny (mostly to himself), generous and very personable. He is also fashionable, for the most part. Not to say that I am the biggest fashion guru on the planet, but …

Wide Legged Bandit

Just under two years ago I started a job at a new company, and though at first it seemed like a far reach from my personal style, I quickly began to drink the Koolaid, or even chug some might say. You see, my personal style BEFORE my new job was mostly all black and whatever …

The Rebirth of Rapunzel’s Reality

I originally started this blog because I needed to create something, in a time where I felt that I had nothing particularly special happening in my life. I mainly shared the misfortunate happenings that seemed to continuously occur to myself—a young, single and naive girl living in the city. Fast-forward to four years later, I’d …
