I am someone who carries a bunch of things every single day and it varies day to day depending on what's going on. So it was important finding and having the best bag to come with me on my adventures. As entrepreneurs and creatives, we wear different hats. Our days are varied and more often that not, we don’t have a proper schedule and routine so what we bring (and how much we bring!) always differ. But have no fear, my Penny Girl is here!Read More
A few months ago, I was working on a project in one of my favorite coffeeshops. The project had a very tight deadline (aka the next day) and I was basically a mess trying to finish and perfect it as much as I can. In the midst of panic attacks, I looked up from my laptop and saw a man working on his laptop too, I could tell he was stressed too, but so much different from how I wasRead More
Thank you for choosing to give me life. For fighting for me when everybody else thought I was and would be a mistake. Thank you for choosing me so blindly, without knowing what will be of me, who I will become. If I’d ever accomplish anything. If I will ever be worth risking your life.Read More

I have been blogging for as long as I can remember. The different names I had for my blog that are way too cringey still makes me smile because they represent a different part of my life.

I’m now using my name for my blog and even though I don’t think I’d be using a different one, there are still ways I can make changes and improvements to make sure this blog grows with me.Read More
I want to give God the first of my year and really practice my faith of His provision and walking in the Pace of Grace. Hopefully, taking a few weeks off (from work, from my norm, from everyone) to just figure it out will help me set the tone for the rest of the year. It will also help me practice my faith in His provision especially because I’m saying no to a lot of opportunities in exchange for time with myself and Him.Read More

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!! EIGHT MONTHS!” Followed by the question “So how are you liking it?” I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of blabbing about how much I love this city, the opportunities and new perspective it has been giving me… [This post was first published on YEGBOSSBABES.com]Read More
Yesterday, I spent the day walking around downtown Calgary after a morning meeting. At one point we passed by the river who has captivated me to stop. The current was was heavy and moving waters always make me want to stop and just watch. And I always wondered what was it that make me just stop, but I realised thatRead More
