HAPPY CANADIAN THANKSGIVING!

Food

It’s that time of year again!

I live for Thanksgiving.

Well, not really… but I LOVE IT.

This year, to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving, I decided to do a non-traditional meal. No turkey for us, instead, I cooked a beef stew! (ok writing that out sounds very anti-climactic, but it was honestly amazing.)

Was a really fun Thanksgiving because my momma was in town visiting, so she joined Troy and I for the big day. She also assisted with the vlog, so make sure you check it out to see her handy work. 😉

If you’re Canadian or not, Happy Thanksgiving!!

WHEN VLOGS DON’T WORK

Lifestyle

Decided to just put this out there…

Honestly was so close to not posting this one, but I figured it would be better to share the reality of my day vs refilm and show you something else that wasn’t real!

This day was actually pretty great, it just happened to make a bad vlog lol.

Hope you enjoyed the video!!

NEW CAR SCAM!

Lifestyle

Scammed buying new car?!

Well, it’s safe to say this didn’t go according to plan…. 😂

It’s time that we get a new car, so Troy isn’t my personal driver. Even though I kind of (and by kind of I mean REALLY) like being driven around by a hot blonde. I don’t ask for much. 😉

Started the process this weekend by checking out a car in the valley. Watch the vlog to see what happens, but it did not go well. Like, probably the exact opposite of what you want to happen while test driving LOL!

Hope you enjoyed this vlog! Busy day today so I gotta bounce (but of course vlogging it so you will see tmrw 🙂 )

Have a FABULOUS Monday!!

HIGH WAISTED EVERYTHING

Outfits

This appreciation post is long overdue…

Today’s post is dedicated to my love of high-waisted jeans/skirts/shorts/everything.

Here’s why.

I was thinking back to the high-school days (clearly, this was my first mistake🤦‍♀️) and how I used to wear those “1-inch zipper” low-rise/skin tight jeans. Let’s formally blame Paris Hilton for this.

There is nothing quite as horrendous as having your love handles/belly be uncomfortably poking out over the top of your skin tight low-rise jeans. How are you supposed to eat? Breather? Live?

I CAN’T. 😫

Since high-waisted jeans came back into style, I’ve pretty much rid my life of anything low-rise. Like, goodbye forever! 🙅‍♀️ New number who dis.

Back to my point…

High-waisted jeans. 👖

It’s been a minute since I’ve publicly acknowledged how significantly my life has been improved by their existence. It’s at least 5% better.

At least.

You can eat in them. They conveniently tuck away all of your unwanted….. layers(?) shall we say? Everything just looks right. And most importantly, the comfort is REAL.

In honour of us no longer stuffing ourselves into 1-inch zipper jeans, here are some high-waisted options that I’m really vibing right now.

First off, Khloe Kardashian knows what’s up when it comes to this trend. Good American has so many great options, and I love how you can view the same pant on different sized models on the website. Honestly how is every other company not doing this? It’s genius.

Also really into Parker Smith these days, they have both high-rise and ULTRA high-rise options. Now, I don’t totally love the price point on Citizens but the brand fits me like a glove and I use their jeans for 5 years plus, always. And finally, if you want a pair of high-waisted jeans/pants a classic is Levis. Not the most stretchy or comfy but ohhhh so on trend rn.

So…yeah! Those are my current fave brands for high-waisted pants. Do you have any faves I need to know about? If so, please leave a comment and let me know what brands you like best!

That’s all for today! Hope your Friday is going well, and you have lots of fun planned for the weekend ahead.

Love you!

INSTAGRAM ISN’T REALITY

Lifestyle

Let’s all remember that…

… instagram is NOT reality!

Honestly felt like I needed to end this photoshoot vlog with a quick reminder to both myself and anyone needing to hear it.

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE photography and modeling. Both are an awesome creative outlet that let me collaborate with cool people. Yes, yes, yes! to all of that.

BUT, I feel like the state of social media/instagram is wild right now. Meaning, we’ve all been posting our highlight reels for so long that we forget it’s not what day-to-day life looks like. It is proven that social media causes feelings of sadness. While I love being creative and taking cool photos, I also like to keep things real and remind myself that all the carefully curated and edited images I see online are not representative of real life.

I feel like I’m making this vlog seem super serious, when it was actually a hella fun day shooting with my friend Eric. You should check him out if you haven’t already. Very talented and inspiring guy. 🙂

Anywho, felt the need to touch on the impact social media has on us, even though the day was super fun and I love the photos we took!

If you love this vlog, make sure you go over to YouTube and leave it a thumbs up so I know!

Hope you are having a good week 🙂 Hang in there, it’s almost Friday.
