Why I Love My Body… And Food

For years, I’ve struggled with loving my body. Ever since I finished university, I’ve been struggling to get back into shape, comparing my body now to the body I had in my early twenties. I always thought, if I could just lose this weight and weigh 20 pounds less, I would be happier. Sadly, that […]

So, You’ve Been Left on “Read”

We all do it. We open a message, read it, and decide not to reply.  Sometimes it’s because we can’t think of anything else to say or we’re not interested in the conversation anymore; sometimes, we glance at the message and forget to reply as we do other things; and sometimes, we choose not to […]

How to Combat Lack of Motivation

Do you ever just have days where you feel low, with little to no motivation? I have them almost all the time. Perhaps it’s the summer burnout or the fact that we’re living in a global pandemic, but I’ve been feeling low lately.  Last week, I felt like I was on top of the world! […]

I cancelled two different trips this year because of the pandemic, one of them a four-week voyage back to the homeland (Italy). I was missing the thrill of planning a trip and seeing new places. Luckily, I still had […]

World of Warcraft: Why I Let My Boyfriend Convince Me to Play an RPG

A little over a year ago, I decided to download World of Warcraft on my Macbook Pro (these aren’t meant for gaming).  I didn’t know a lot about Warcraft, aside from the Warcraft lore my boyfriend told me (shoutout to him for being so knowledgeable). Funny story, before I even considered playing Warcraft, I was […]

Basic White Girl Season

I was reading Gin’s September blog last week, and I was like, “Yes, I do love toques, pumpkin spice, and everything nice.” Then I went, “Holy shit, I’m hella basic.” Fall is basic white girl season. It’s my time to shine and drink all the PSL’s in all its forms (have you tried the cold […]

September: A Few of My Favourite Things

September. ‘Tis the season of pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters, and scary movie marathons. While I love summer for those warm sunny days and my birthday (obviously), I really enjoy fall. Obviously, fall officially begins on September 21st, but as we all know, the first of September is a good sign of the cool air […]

Her Bad Idea Review & Interview

Recently, I was lucky to get my hands on an advanced copy of Her Bad Idea, the seventh book in Sagan Morrow’s Polyamorous Passions series. Plus, I had the opportunity to interview Sagan about her own experience being poly, the fun she had writing three different narrative styles, as well as teases for the upcoming […]
