I’M MOVING TO NEW YORK!

Errr, what, me? Moving to New York City, all by myself? I don’t know if I can handle it… I think most people would jump at the chance to move to New York, but for me it came with a lot of hesitation and anxiety. I’ve never been an adventure seeker and never considered moving anywhere outside of Vancouver for most of my life so the idea of leaving my friends, family, possessions, and everything I’m accustomed to was scary. I was scared to accept the job offer, but equally scared to miss out on this opportunity. But with the support and encouragement from the people I loved, of course I said yes! Continue Reading →

DIY T-Shirt Scarf / Necklace Tutorial!

I’m home from Calgary after 5 weeks there and back in Vancouver now! It’s still cold here but nothing like it was over there. That cold was just crazy, sometimes goes down to -35 degrees Celsius with windchill. My friends were saying that you could get frostbite in 10 minutes standing outside.

So, I wanted to make scarves this week since we’ll probably have two more months of cold weather. I googled lots and lots of t-shirt scarves and there are so many cool ones – I might end up doing a whole series of t-shirt scarf videos. Let me know if you’d like that! Continue Reading →

What I realized in 2013…

For most of 2013, I was going through internal struggles in deciding what I wanted to do with my life… What do I want to do? Where do I want to work? I always thought I wanted a corporate job at a big company but after SAP, I started thinking otherwise. Although it was hard to admit to myself and to others, “No, I’m not looking for a job. Yes, I’m working on my YouTube full-time.” eventually, I came to accept my decision of not going the conventional route and I’m really glad I did it. Continue Reading →

Weaved Halter Racerback Tank Top

One of my biggest things is getting back into YouTube and now I’m making regular videos again – one every week!

Checkered Work Out T-Shirt

During the holiday season, it’s so hard not to indulge bad eating habits! Who else has this problem? There are so many family dinners, parties and when I spend all day in the mall doing Christmas shopping, I end up eating fast food. So bad, I know. And I’ve definitely been overeating. My guilty pleasure is chips and dip – if I’m at a party and there’s chip and dip on the table. I will stand next to that table all night, I can’t stop myself! Continue Reading →
