It is so different when you’re actually surrounded by this kind of energy, people, conversations, stories as compared to when youre just watching on youtube or hearing someone tell their story on a podcast interview. I crave their energy. I promised myself I’m going to make more effort to surround myself with winners, to surround myself with people who are not just in the bleachers of life, but those who are in the game.
I am just genuinely proud of these girls. They started just a year ago and have created this wonderful community of like minded, passionate and driven women from Edmonton. My biggest takeaway from that day was from the guest speaker Justine, founder of Lipstick Empire.
“I have made it my mission to surround myself with people committed to their own success and to the success of others.”
I interviewed my favorite GirlBoss! Rachelle talks about creating products that symbolize your brand message, why it’s important to be the face of her brand, her goals for Quinsco, the power of learning to say ‘No, living in Toronto and much more..

It’s so nice to dream, and it would be nicer to have it actualised.
Ana blogs about style, beauty and life in general and makes everyone (aka me) swoon whenever she posts about Gabe and their matchy style. I couldnt go through editing their photos without having major baby fever like I did when we met up for coffee at Cafe Mosaics down at Whyte Ave.
This is my last Sunday as a teenager. WHAT. | The Sunday Edit is a little collection of tips, tools, and prompts to get us started for the coming week. And LOTS of life updates and me talking about nerdy things that excite me.
Anastasia’s story teaches me that if we only look and dig deeper, we will always find what we are looking for. And even if we don’t, we can always ALWAYS create it
8 months ago, I moved to Edmonton. That’s usually how my story starts when other people ask me. And I still love how they say, “no way!!
