Staying Up All Night at the Thompson with Origins

Staying Up All Night at the Thompson with Origins

Last week, I finally did something that I was in dire need of for a long time – a staycation. As a marketer and blogger, I’m literally working 24/7. When most people get to wrap up work at 5 and head out to hang with their friends, I rotate from my 9-5 to my 5-9. I’ve never been one to stop working since lack of productivity leaves me feeling anxious. Though this may appear to be a positive trait for some, I sometimes feel like it’s a curse. I’m always left hunting for the next thing and I never give my body the rest and relaxation it deserves. So when Origins approached me to join them on a staycation at the Thompson Hotel, I knew that naturally I deserved it!

Cherry Pop

I’ve spent the last couple of months making a concerted effort to integrate more colour into my life. I have to say that it’s definitely freeing! Sure, I still gravitate towards my neutrals, but it’s been really nice to be able to now pick from other colours in my closet besides just black, white, beiges, and browns. I won’t lie though and say that I’m now wearing every colour under the rainbow because I definitely am not. I’ve recently only begun to incorporate pinks, reds, and florals into my attire and I fully blame my blogger friends for it! Everytime I’m around Tee or Camilla, they’re wearing the cutest floral dresses and I’m left with serious FOMO due to my lack-of-colour of a closet. Thus, inspired to start wearing more colour and florals. Trust me, it’s a breath of fresh air.

Celebrating 15 Years of the Sweetie

Celebrting 15 Years of the Sweetie

Dress – Marshall's / Jacket – All Saints (similar here) / Heels – Stuart Weitzman / Bracelet – Links of London

When I was younger, charm bracelets were a big thing in my life. I would visit the mall once a month to pick up a new one to add to my collection. From clip on charms, to chain link bracelets, you name it – I had it! Sadly though, jewelry made for children isn't necessarily designed to grow with you. A lot of the charm bracelets that I had owned at the time ended up tarnishing, breaking, and even getting lost. Yep, lost. I wasn't the most careful child out there.

#INeverExpire With SK-II

We’re going to be riding that train of serious topics again today. Just got off one talking about Instagram, and now onto the next one about expiry dates and ages. I recently celebrated my 26th birthday this past week, and couldn’t help but feel defeated as opposed to excited. And it’s a feeling that’s been recurring for the past few years.

Back in middle school, I learned that a female’s peak physical condition is when she’s around 25/26 years old. At the ripe old age of 12, you can imagine that that seemed like light years away for me. But as I gradually got older and older, and closer and closer to the peak age, my enthusiasm towards celebrating birthdays waned. Why would I want to celebrate my expiry? Rather celebrate the fact that I’m getting towards my peak age and that my body will just be a downhill journey from there? And then I stopped myself. Who is society to tell me that I can’t continue to ride my peak throughout my late 20s and even into my 30s?

Why I Began Falling Out Of Love With Instagram

Why I've Begin Falling Out Of Love With Instagram

Dress – Marshall’s / Shoes – Raye / Bag – Chloe / Sunglasses – Le Chateau

Oh man, what a week it’s been so far and it’s only Thursday. I promise that I’m not going radio silent. I just went back to Ottawa for Canada’s 150, and then came back to Toronto to celebrate my birthday with P, which meant that I basically unplugged for the past 5 days (besides posting to Instagram) and it felt so nice! This post was totally not something that I meant to write about so soon after my birthday, but it’s something that’s been on my mind for the past while and I really wanted to finally get it all off of my chest.
