78.

My grandpa has the most perfect hands. They're soft, despite the hard work he has done throughout his entire lifetime. I like to think the weathered wrinkles in his fingertips each count for another story that has made up his incredible life. He has nicely shaped, clean fingernails that I like to trace with the… Continue reading 78.

5 ways to be a hat person

It took me a long time to get into the hat thing. I felt like I looked funny; I started questioning if my head is abnormally large or maybe abnormally small (still not sure) or why I only noticed the size of my head once I put a hat on. I'd see people wearing cute… Continue reading 5 ways to be a hat person

Why You Shouldn’t Compare Yourself to Instagram Models

Ok, I know you have probably seen a million posts with this title or something very, very similar. So I'll try to enlighten you with something you've maybe never read before! Let's give it a try.

Girl Boss

I'm currently sick at home binge-watching Girl Boss on Netflix, a loose (real loose) account of the life of Sophia Amoruso, the gal who created Nasty Gal. The show has me feeling both awkward and inspired by Sophia's carefree/careless attitude toward getting what she wants. Although the episode I'm currently on involves an argument with… Continue reading Girl Boss

Good girl revival

I started this blog in August of 2016, while visiting my boyfriend in Europe where he was playing professional hockey at the time. I wanted an outlet to share my adventures, ideas and experiences outside of my personal social media outlets, as too often I hear the judgmental sounds of girls criticizing other girls for… Continue reading Good girl revival

Last Minute Lovebirds

As kids, Valentine's Day was always the best day of the year, because it meant free chocolate at school. It also meant you had a chance to tell your crush you liked them (which is something I never did, I was the msn-only kind of girlfriend #goodgirlsclub).... But as we get older, people start to… Continue reading Last Minute Lovebirds

Simple & Savoury

As a kid, I was never forced to eat the dreadful Brussel sprouts that were a common joke in sitcoms. At 23 years old, I tried them for the first time and to tell you the truth- I'm obsessed! My babe puts them in a pan on low-medium heat with olive/coconut oil, fries them then… Continue reading Simple & Savoury

Favorite Fall Finds

Fall is probably my favorite season when it comes to outfit possibilities. You can dress for cosy weather, but still play around with a bare leg. I'm wearing a tweed dress from Mango, lace up heels from Spring (my favorite spot to buy shoes, if you haven't noticed!) and a new addition that is quickly… Continue reading Favorite Fall Finds
