I don’t know about you but when Friday rolls around it brings an energy that has you looking forward to a great weekend. If you want to take that Friday feeling to the next level, I highly recommend the following radio shows for your listening pleasure. Kiss 92.5 DJ Clymaxxx This show always blows me away. DJ Clymaxxx integrates today’s hits with the best old school or sometimes it’s a great reggae set or he’ll spin some R&B that gives you all the goosebumps. No matter what mood I’m in,

In case you didn’t know, July is Self-Care month (so is September) and today (Wednesday, July 24) is the official International Self-Care Day. This doesn’t mean that we should not be engaging in daily self-care, but if you ever felt like you needed permission to indulge in caring for the most important person in your life (YOU), then this is the month to have at it! Self-care requires us to be aware, acknowledge and apply that which makes us look and feel good from the inside out. I’m not talking

In October 2017, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and by December 2017, we learned that the cancer had spread to my liver, putting me at stage 4. I recently went live on Facebook to share my story (a year later) and let everyone know that despite my diagnosis, I’m living my life like it’s golden. I am determined to live until I die and it’s the grace of God that is seeing me through all of it. I had a lot of fear around going public with this information,

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.

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
