Why you should go to a Cirque du Soleil show

My Cirque du Soleil fascination started in architecture school. One of my projects was to design a tower for the company’s headquarters in Canada. For inspiration, I watched hours and hours of shows and from then on I really wanted to go see one! One of the biggest reasons I would recommend a Cirque performance to anyone is the fact that they do not use animals. A lot of people boy cut circuses because of the inhumane conditions that animals are kept in or trained in. Thankfully, this is not something that Cirque engages in.

My very first Cirque du Soleil show was a touring show titled  Read More

Social Media Etiquette

Social media is this really weird virtual world where people can become a whole new and completely different persona. This is something that you know if you’re a blogger because so many people preach about being “authentic” because there are so many people that aren’t.

I am so happy that platforms like Snapchat and Instagram did not exist when I was a teenager because I am pretty sure I would have had some major self esteem issues. I went through high school being reminded about how flat my chest was and safe to say it has been almost 10 years and nothing has changed. Now, imagine being an insecure 6 year old with a flat chest seeing all the likes these big bootied, big tittied girls are getting and I’m just here with my small kite frame.

To be honest, social media has its pros and cons. It has created a global connection for people who would not have been able to have any contact with each other a few decades ago. I have met many great bloggers thanks to social media, and discovered lots of artists and fashion designers thanks to Instagram.  Heck, Read More

2017 X The Burning House by Stephanie Ramlogan

2017 was a doozy.

Every year people get on social media and go on and on about how terrible their year was and how they can’t wait on the next one. Usually, I think they’re being overly dramatic. This year, I can kind of understand why.

On Jan 1st, I had the job of my dreams that I somehow managed to score straight out of school, my family’s health was all well, and I had a boyfriend I was pretty smitten with. Somewhere in the third quarter of the previous year I slid in the DMs of a guy that I thought had a nice beard, we struck up a convo, one thing led to another and we were on a first date. For those of you that know me personally, you will know exactly who he is. He has one of the most adorable and boyish grins with a vampire bite – his canines are longer than the rest of his teeth and one of his front teeth is slightly more crooked than the other; and there’s a dimple.  I was pleasantly surprised that someone that I thought was that cute, who spent time on the daily in the gym and had a body to show for it could possibly be as sweet and caring as he was. Fast forward to a week before my birthday, he called it quits for exactly the reason I did not want to get into a relationship. To say I was devastated would be an understatement.

Book Review: The Knock Off by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza

from vancouversun.com

The Knockoff by Lucy Sykes and Jo Piazza was such a great read! (And I am not just saying that). Imogen Tate, Glossy magazine’s editor-in-chief, went on six months vacation for medical reasons. Upon her return at work, she was blind sided and discovered that her print magazine was being turned into an app.

The novel follows Imogen and her former assistant turned tech bitch Eve. Eve left Glossy to go off to business school (“b-school”) at Harvard and came back to the Glossy office with a new job title and a new found attitude. Imogen had not kept up with ever changing technology and was thrown into a situation where she was forced to learn very quickly thanks to Eve’s nasty ways.  Read More
