If you’ve followed my shenanigans for a while – you know that I’m no stranger to taking on a new city solo. I don’t mind being alone – it’s grounding for me to be away from other people and just be with myself. In fact, it’s my way of recharging. It’s one of the reasons […]

I’m always on the hunt for new products to test out – but more importantly, I’m more interested in what products are worth keeping around.

Here is my current round-up of full-face favourites.

Enjoy!

I thought one could only “win” at meditation if you sat there like a Buddhist monk, completely at peace with zero thoughts going through your head. That was unattainable for me, so I quit – because I’m really going at not doing things that I’m not good at.

While you may feel like you’re not able to turn on the lightbulb on command, I’ve got a few helpful tips that I’ve learned over the years to boost your creativity when you feel like you’re stuck in a rut.

Shooting with Taren is always a blast. We came together last month to shoot some lifestyle and fitness content for her social media and blog. Check it out!

Call your girls and get going to the city that never sleeps.

This is #TheGirlsTripSeries.

I’ve travelled to 36 countries, but if you were to ask me where one of my favourite places in the world is, I would tell you that my bed is quite a strong contender. And as someone with a chronic back injury, I’m fussy when It comes to my mattress.

The world of socially trendy “comes in a box” mattresses emerged a few years ago. And for someone who would consider herself a marketer’s dream, I was quite intrigued by the whole thing.

While it’s unlikely you’ll be able to experience this entire city over the span of a weekend, it is likely you’ll fall in love with it’s charm and energy that LA has to offer.

Whether this is your first trip to the City of Angels, or a friendly trip back to a place that’s starting to feel like home – there’s always something new to do here.

Grab your girls, and let’s kick this series off.
