As someone who travels for short stints across the border or locally, it’s not hard to believe that we have a separate travel/go bag for our short getaways (more on the detailed contents of our go bag here). I recently decided that my bathroom essentials could use a little more organization and DIYed it.
If you work, live or have talked to me in the last month you are likely aware that I have joined Planet Fitness. My fitness goals have not been met this year and I needed to make some new plans to start on the right track again. The answer – Planet Fitness.
In North America, we have many, many clothing brands – Gap, Old Navy, Abercrombie, Hollister, Guess, Adidas, Lululemon, Nike, etc. As a former teen, I can say that brands are related to social status in school (though they shouldn’t be). But now that I’m an adult, brands for the sake of brands have zero impact on my clothing choices.
The people who know me well know that I have a little bit of an obsession with organizing – that generally means a neat, well-labeled, efficiently implemented processes that makes logical sense to most humans. I’d say I’m a little more obsessive than most regarding where to put items and how to organize ‘stuff’. But I’ve come to discover that my slight OCD hardly compares to some of systems implemented by others… One system in particular is the labeling done by my better half.
Have you ever received that little something from your partner that makes your day a bit brighter? Sometimes it’s a special event, sometimes it’s a new product, but most of the time (in our case), it’s food – specifically the little snacks. Those make the biggest impact on how my day is going to play out.
As a child, I loved playing video games and remember playing The Lion King as early as age 3 on Super Nintendo. When I was in the double digits, I would come home after school, finish my homework (because the rule was, homework first) and then game until bed. I remember spending entire weekends playing The Legend of Zelda and Donkey Kong on my N64. Those were the days….
It is not uncommon to see tattoos on the average person in this day and age. Sailors and bikers used to be the only ones with tattoos, but now tattoos are ‘cool and modern’. Even though tattoos are fairly common place, I have personally encountered several people (across various generations) that are not fans…
For those of you who are in a relationship (or who are at least considering one), I've decided to share a list of 50+ questions that my now husband and I asked each other at the 6 month mark - wayyy back in January 2012. I honestly don't remember where these questions originated from and take zero credit for writing them. Very likely, they are a combination of relationship building questions found online in 2012, plus a few of our my own questions. So here are the important questions that were asked in 'the beginning'. The ones that put things in perspective and set a foundation for our relationship and that you might find personally useful for yours.
This past Saturday, I attended Paws in the Park in the Beach, Toronto. The area where the event was hosted may have had something to do with it, but I was delighted at the number of pet owners who very willingly let me photograph their dog(s). I explained that I was building an online pet portfolio with hopes of approaching my local adoption centers with an idea to feature pets up for adoption in a different way, and I was ecstatic and surprised at the positive response.
I just spent three days in one of the most beautiful Provincial Parks in North America. Algonquin is simply pristine, with an abundance of nature and wildlife (though we didn't personally see any large wildlife). Very little written content this week because a picture is worth 1000 words - I hope these few speak to you.
I'm a 20-something woman working my way through life in Canada, traveling when I can afford it and seeking out my passions one day at a time.
