Why I cancelled my trip to Europe…

Remember when tumblr was a huge deal and everyone had the whole “wanderlust” mentality? Well, I have wanderlust 99.9% of the time. I’m a huge travel lover, and realistically would love to go everywhere if I had the opportunity (and the funds lol). So, when looking forward to graduating from University, naturally I asked my…

Making Choices For You

I’ve never been too good at making decisions. Seriously, I’ll spend half an hour scrolling through Netflix and I still can’t pick something to watch (I usually just throw on Friends because you can never go wrong with Friends). However, we all have to make decisions in our lives, no matter how hard it may…

If you don’t feel like the other person is making the same effort you are, then you really shouldn’t…

Mirror Mirror on the Wall

What if, whenever you looked in the mirror, you were never sure if you could trust what you saw? What if, seeing yourself in a positive way, felt simply impossible? For some people, this is a reality that they face every day. Body Dysmorphia, or Body Dysmorphic Disorder (BDD), is usually associated with eating disorders,…

Baby it’s Cold Outside

I often wish that I could physically pick up my University and place it in the Southern Hemisphere. As much as I love Canada, I absolutely HATE the cold. I have the pain tolerance to withstand a tattoo without a flinch, but I have absolutely no cold tolerance. Unfortunately, the reality is, I do live…

Treat yo’ self

We’ve all heard the ever-so popular phrase, “treat yo’ self.” But I think sometimes people tend to trivialize the actual importance of doing just that! In a way, it’s become a bit of a joke. And while it’s obviously not something you should be doing 24/7 with careless intentions, every once in a while doing…
