The upgrade I didn’t know we needed! 

When it comes to home decor, I love how different Julio and I can be. He is artistic with a flare for the dramatic, while I tend to gravitate to symmetry and balance between bright and dark. Most recently he’s taken to organizing rooms in our house to make it feel more like home. I took a page from his book to give our living room an update with a few upgrades along the way.

Why I’m Okay With My Fifteen Minutes of Fame Winding Down

It’s been about eight years since the photo above was taken. Since that moment so much has changed for us together as a couple and for us as individuals. It goes without saying that we’ve done a lot of growing up. I’ve worked with some of the biggest brands in the world, I’ve jet set around the world for events and activations, I’ve met and chatted with celebrities local and international, and I’ve even had up to fifteen staff.

Remembering What It Means To Be Romantic

Having recently sat down for a moment to pause, I realize that we are mid way through March and the year seems to be flying by. While Julio & I are working towards have children and accomplishing some pretty incredible things in our professional lives, I sometimes feel as though we may forget to be romantic.

One of us more than the other of course… ? But without pointing fingers, I think the point is one that a lot of us can identify with. So in light of understanding we can’t always jet away to a tropical destination around the globe, I’ve found a romantic getaway right here in the heart of Toronto that is like no other. And it’s right here in your your own backyard.
