I used to hate my body

…and I think a lot of us have. It’s sad, it really is – that there is this subliminal pressure to often look differently than we do, and to constantly question ourselves leading us to be uncomfortable in our own skin. It comes from so many places, and it’s hard to pinpoint where exactly because…

simplify your wardrobe (and gain more self-love)

Capsule wardrobes are on the rise, and have been deemed the latest and greatest (rightfully so) thing to hit lady closets everywhere. I used to be a clothing hoarder. Multiple colours, styles and shapes – it didn’t matter, if I saw it on somebody else and I thought it looked good on them, I wanted…

i’m a jerk | breaking free & being sentimental

Perhaps I’m just overly sentimental, but when I take a few minutes to scroll through old photos online, I can’t help but be flooded with memories and thoughts about each of those sweet, special moments. I have a different feeling about each one of them… maybe it’s remembering an exact feeling or moment that made…

fort berens winery in lillooet, british columbia | why(ne) not

It was a dismal weekend forecast. A 95% chance of a LOT of rain. When you work during the week, and you have a list of epic places you want to go and weekend activities that require their fair share of sunshine, a less-than-ideal forecast can put a severe damper on one’s outlook. Not me….

a weekend in oregon | those PNW vibes

Once in a while I get this itch to go somewhere. Not in a week from that moment, not in a month, but right then. It seems completely irrational because I live in the greatest place ever – but I love the feeling of being on a highway, the sun going down and waking up…

Pacific North-West vibes: A weekend road trip in Oregon

Once in a while I get this itch to go somewhere. Not in a week from that moment, not in a month, but right then. It seems completely irrational because I live in the greatest place ever – but I love the feeling of being on a highway, the sun going down and waking up…

bay of fires, tasmania | red rocks & the greenest ocean

I had been to the Bay of Fires briefly last year. Just for a taste – a tiny treat. This year, I got to hang around and spend some time getting to know these big, red rocks. We stayed in the most unique place – a family cabin on a salt water bay. It’s shallow…

bruny island, tasmania | an island off an island escape

I saw this on Pinterest – The Neck, on Bruny Island, and it immediately became a place we had to see. The good news was that we were already planning on heading down to Bruny to visit a friend who’s an Oyster Farmer on the rural island. We followed the sign that said “Adventure Bay,” and…

An island off of an island: Bruny Island, Tasmania

I saw this on Pinterest – The Neck, on Bruny Island, and it immediately became a place we had to see. The good news was that we were already planning on heading down to Bruny to visit a friend who’s an Oyster Farmer on the rural island. We followed the sign that said “Adventure Bay,” and…

#VANLIFE in australia | 4 wheels of freedom

Some may think it’s a trend, this #vanlife thing, but I’d beg to differ. My parents travelled around the country in a van in the 70’s and hippies alike have been living the van life dream since 4 wheels could roll. The only thing that’s changed is that people are sharing about it – and…
