Setting 3 Year Goals

Hello Darlings, The day after my 25th birthday I felt like a weight of the world has come crushing down on my shoulders. Not sure what changed within twenty four hours but on that day two years ago it all did. It’s as if the switch went off in my mind and the priorities have shifted or perhaps I finally established some.

Hello Darlings, Looking back on the past 7 years that I’ve been writing WithLoveGabrielle.com, I can’t begin to fathom the idea how one decision led to this moment. Looking back on that evening at Robarts Library, as a 2nd year University of Toronto student I made a decision to write down my thoughts and publish them online. At the time it was such a foreign concept that I kept it a secret from family and friends for months. For my first article I wrote about Coco Chanel as it only seemed fitting that I start first with an individual who inspired this journey.…
