T'is the season! Getting together with family and friends is part of what makes the holidays so special, and it's also a time when we see a huge amount of consumption, and tonnes and tonnes of waste from extra food, wrapping and convenience/disposable items. Hosting a...

As human beings, we are creatures of habit. Rituals can be vital to any self-care routine and there is one on particular that I personally cannot budge on - 20 minutes on Sunday nights all to myself. That's really all I need to reconnect and get centred....

"Let it be easy" - a phrase I have become more comfortable with over the last few weeks and one at first glance, I may have scoffed at the simplicity of.

Mornings are underrated IMO. I love mornings for so many reasons, one of them being that I get to  wake up to a fresh start each day. I hold the power to decide how I want my day(s) to unfold, and how I want to feel - totally incredible and empowering once tapped into....

I have been thinking about this concept a lot lately and I have been trying to define it. At first, it sounded kind "woo woo", hippie-ish and a frankly, little too much. But it kept coming back to me and finally, I came to this...

I attended the opening of Vancouver's first zero-waste grocery store, Nada, last week and have had several questions from friends and followers on what it was like, so I thought I would answer them here.
