Ste Anne’s Spa, Countryside Escape

Hello Darlings, “Busy” has become the new “I’m well, thank you” to every “how are you”. In fact, a recent study in the Journal of Consumer Research argues that a busy and overworked lifestyle, rather than a leisurely one, has become the new aspirational status symbol. Who cares about beachfront vacations, when you can work overtime!? Complaining about being busy and working all the time has become an incredibly widespread phenomenon, and one that is impossible to sustain. I’ve learned it the hard way. You cannot perform at your best by being constantly stressed. It’s important to me to maintain a…

Porsche Camp4 Canada

Hello Darlings, This winter has been a snowy one and not very kind to drivers. The other day as I was driving home in yet another snow storm when I encountered black ice. Despite having winter tires and a four wheel drive car, I quickly began to lose control. Luckily, despite the momentary panic I knew exactly how to respond. It came as an instinct. My instincts followed the very steps I learned back at Porsche’s Camp4 Canada as a guest of Porsche  Centre Oakville.When a movement is repeated over time, a long-term muscle memory is created. It allows you to perform the task…

Grand Velas Riviera Maya, Mexico

Hello Darlings, Dozens of outfits found their way to my bed and favourite sandals scattered themselves all over the bedroom floor. Although it was about 1:30AM, I was just then pulling out my suitcase to pack for a 6AM Toronto to Cancun Interjet flight that day. With Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” blaring from my Beats Pill and a glass of Amarone in hand, I was a in blissful state knowing that just few hours from now I’ll be on a beach. It wasn’t so much the beach that induced the type of excitement that I also experienced the first time…

Becoming a Single Working Dog Mom

Hello Darlings, A single working dog mom – yours truly! As much as I despise that term, it does categorize me fairy well. It took me a year of coming to terms with that title and not feeling like a complete failure. And after two weeks of dog sitting a second pup recently, I finally came to realize that I’ve got this. It’s a full adjustment having to look after someone outside of myself and they say that a millennial just can’t. Prior to welcoming Luna into my life, a favourite line from just about everyone was, “Say good- bye…
