For those of you who follow along on our #DoTheDaniel adventures on our Instagram stories (and if you don’t – what are you waiting for?! We have loads of fun over there!) you’ll have seen that I was recently invited to Canadian Tire’s Christmas House party. With seven rooms devoted to seven CANVAS colours: red, gold, silver, blue, white, brights and serene rose (my personal favourite) it was like stepping inside Christmas itself. With garlands and tinsel and sparkles (oh my!) I was lucky enough to view their entire Holiday line-up. I was able to get ideas for my wishlist to Santa started nice and early, but I also came to realize that Canadian Tire is incredibly versatile when it comes to helping us create beautiful memories for the holidays and beautiful spaces in our homes. Above and beyond the ribbon and wrapping, there were several furniture items I now need to see if Santa can fit in his sleigh for me!Read More »
This past year, I went through a number of changes, mentally, emotionally and physically. Last year I was under a lot of stress and during that time I didn’t take proper care of my mind or body. As a result I lost quite a bit of weight. After some self care and hard word, I was able to get it together and began to focus on taking care of me again.
In the beginning my weight loss was due to stress, but I quickly realized how important it was to take care of my temple and thankfully the rest of my transformation was a healthy one. Following some dietary changes which were best for me, I focused on living a healthy lifestyle which consisted of eating healthy balanced meals, morning yoga andand staying active through hiking and workouts at home.Continue Reading Read More »
It’s that time of year again – the holiday bargain hunting has begun and as I prepare myself for the excitement of shopping for the ones I love, I am also being mindful of the fact that I am on a budget. In the past, I was never a believer in Black Friday. It didn’t appeal to me and for the most part the only time I realized it was happening was when I would watch the news after getting home from work. You could say that I’ve grown wiser in my old age (I’m thirty five going on sixty it feels some days!) and now know that this incredible day is an opportunity to shop for the ones I love and myself while saving an amazing amount of money. It will also be how I kick start my holiday cheer and plan to put up my Christmas tree this weekend after shopping till I drop. So where will you find me this year you ask? The only place to be for holiday shopping of course with 350 stores ready to put me in the spirit! Continue ReadingRead More »

As 2018 comes to an end and I get even more nostalgic (if that’s even possible), I am reflecting on the content and collaborations we have been a part of. I am proud of what we’ve accomplished both as a team of beautiful people around the world, but also as a media outlet. That being said, I haven’t always been the most positive person online and, while I do not ignore the past, I have come to learn from it. The world is a chaotic place and this year I made a very conscious effort to no longer take to the internet to spread hate, hurt or harm anyone in my life. It might seem like that’s a given, but it seems as though many of us quickly (and callously) use our social media to spread negativity when we feel wronged. There is something to be said for keeping those things off the internet, and I wanted to tell you why I stopped complaining on the internet. Continue ReadingRead More »
