W Montreal Double Take

Hello Darlings,  Upon checking into my room and a quick soak, I was ready for a night on the town! With an itinerary filled with adventure, I was as excited as a little kid on a Christmas morning. The first event on the list was a meet and greet at Bartini in the lobby of W.  Luckily, my closet friend and a colleague Miya joined me on this trip. She was covering the experience for TheYouthSociety.com — a women’s lifestyle site I co-found in 2014— and you can read all about it here.  After a few martinis and making new friends, we set…

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.

Capture the Moment

Hello Darlings, This moment will be just another story someday. That glimpse will be long forgotten. Someone once wisely said, “Life is like a camera; just focus on what’s important and capture the good times, develop from the negatives and if things don’t work out, just take another shot.“
