Prefer to listen to this blog instead? When it comes to confidence and self-esteem, it’s all about your attitude and seeing things from a new perspective. Last night I went to see I Feel Pretty with Amy Schumer and it definitely had me ROTFL, but what stood out for me is the overall message of letting your confidence flow, with complete ignorance to the world’s idea of what beauty and sexiness looks like. Synopsis & Trailer A woman struggling with insecurity wakes from a fall believing she is the most

It was bold of me to decide to stay in a city with little to no family to take care of me after I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2017 and it was even more bold of me to pursue my goal of landing a job or a major opportunity, while starting this magazine, when I didn’t know how I would respond to chemotherapy. The beautiful (and divine) thing is that I escaped chemotherapy after learning that my diagnosis was actually at stage 4 and because there is

Some years ago, during my inter-provincial travels between Montreal and Toronto, I found myself declaring that I would like to be baptized. At the time, I was already deep in regular Bible study, devotion and talking to God, so I thought that this would happen sooner rather than later, but it actually took some time for me to journey to this point. Even though I already had a faithful practice, I didn’t feel like it was enough to be baptized but my journey to baptism taught me 2 things: You

Before Spring time officially hit, I had the opportunity to try my very first oyster. That’s right, I started this year as an oyster virgin and thanks to an open house event at Sofa To Go, I broke that virginity and slurped my way into becoming an oysterly active foodventurer and captured the whole thing on video. What was your first oyster experience like?

Since I have allowed myself to feel my pain, fears and doubts, I can’t believe it’s been about a week and I’m still processing a lot of my emotions. In the past, within a day, I’m over it, but if you’re following from last weeks Morning Café, we know that I’m human and getting over certain things so quickly is not truth. In today’s video, I talk about holding down emotions and clinging to whatever makes us feel better in the moment, otherwise known as our training wheels. But eventually,

I wasn’t always a yogalista. My journey with yoga didn’t start off so pleasantly at all. I hated it the first time around, some 8 years ago and I really hated it 2 years later. But as I became determined to explore regular activity that worked for me and didn’t bore me, I fell back to yoga one last time and immersed myself even deeper by learning more about it; like that fact that there are several minority, plus sized women who also practice yoga. This third time around, I

Last week I learned about letting go. If you’re following me on Facebook, you may have read about my ‘meltdown Monday’. I blamed my meltdown on the stranger, but upon reflection, I blame it on my tendency to hold back and suppress my feelings. I lean towards staying strong and having faith and keeping doubt and fear out of my mind, when all the while, I’ve been needing to let go. The truth is, I have been extremely fearful and doubtful and unsure; combined with a lack of confidence and

If you’re like me, you tend to eat when you’re bored or excited, and nothing excites me more than getting to the end of the work-week in one piece. If you ask me, that’s cause for a celebration and a celebration is cause for indulging in your junk food favourites. Junk food Friday is an occasion I instated years ago during one of my health kicks and even though I learned that engaging in a night of salt and sweets could undo an entire week of exercise, the occasion stuck. In

Happy New Month! As we officially embark on month number five of 2017, it’s hard to believe that we’re already, almost halfway through the year! Despite my circumstances, I would say I’m handling things extremely well and remaining faithful that my ‘someday’ will be coming soon. My new coffee mug (seen above) has been a big help! It has definitely been a year for transition. I’m making it a habit to do things I’ve never done, in an effort to live a life I’ve never lived. It has certainly caused

I always gain perspective when I meet and speak to women who look like they have it all together, but are suffering and struggling and facing daily challenges we don’t even know about. There are people in this world who assume that because you drive a nice car, wear nice clothes, are married with kids and work a 6-figure job that you have it all together and that you’re living the fabulous life. But in a lot of cases, nothing could be farther from the truth and I am no
