Consumer VS. Corporation

pexels-photo-51415.jpeg
Blogging can be joyful but it can also be incredibly disheartening, frustrating and full of defeat (yes, i’ve mentioned this plenty of times before).

I owe a lot of gratitude to the companies that have been kind enough to work with me, not because of a ROI but because they genuinely care about my opinion and the content I create.

If you are a large corporation worth billions of dollars and you decide to run an “Autism at Work” program, employing autistic individuals and running seminars/talks with lots of press material and attendance, it’s in your very best interest to make sure that everyone is on the same page.

What do I mean by this?

Your PR company should know better than to use the terminology “with autism”, they should also realize that if they are employing autistic individuals then that would be a perfect segue to attracting autistic customers.

I got so wound up and so incredibly anxious after dealing with all this in the morning that I have felt unwell the entire day. I tend to internalize my feelings.

Sometimes I think of our home, our planet as seen from space. It makes me realize how insignificant I truly am and helps puts things in to perspective.

Don’t mind me.

Me

My imperfections are many. I have scars and zits on my face, I have gained weight, my teeth are not by-any-means perfect looking. I won’t smile with my mouth opened and my knees turn in to each other. My posture SUCKS and my back is constantly in pain.

Recently my Mom asked me if I had put on weight, I answered with a resounding “YES!! Didn’t you notice?”.

Yes, I’m overweight.

I’ve gone up 1 or 2 pant sizes (depending on the brand). I’m not sure if it’s from being fired last August or starting my Anti-Depressants not that long afterwards. It took me a very, very long time to come to terms with needing to take them. I believed, wholeheartedly, that they would hurt me. (I am not talking for anyone but myself.) I realized that they do help me. I’m not sure if it’s contributed to my weight gain or if having free sugary drinks during my work has instead. I need some self control but it’s hard, considering I have quite the sweet tooth.

My social life hasn’t grown at all and the fact that i’m pushing 30 doesn’t make me think that it’s ever going to change.

I do have something to look forward to, a few hotel collaborations and some product reviews coming up as well as a potential writing gig.

I’m still learning how to balance positivity in my life and it’s honestly a lot harder then I thought it ever would be. I’m trying to keep my mind open with a goal of positive personal growth.

New Videos: Chewigem & LipSense!

Oops! I posted these videos on youtube and of course, being slightly absent minded, I completely forgot to post them here.

So many NEW THINGS!

I have so many things to review (tea, beauty products etc) but I just haven’t had enough time or energy lately.

I did reserve some of my energy and I made this:

I’m SUPER amateur with sewing but I plan on getting some vintage fabric and secondhand supplies to teach myself the basics!

And my Boyfriend spoiled our cats and got them this amazing tree:

Che Malambo!

I was so lucky to receive tickets* to experience Caravan World Rhythm’s Che Malambo which is an Argentinian All-Male Dance group.

 

With their overwhelming talent, expert choreography and ability to entertain the crowd, the show was a memorable masterpiece.

Their footwork was a mix of riverdance paired with flamenco and tango. Truly a unique experience! I really enjoyed the humour and singing as well as the impressive tricks they performed by whirling boleadoras – a percussive lasso. It was electrifying. To me, I felt it was very elemental. They resembled a growing flame and a powerful hailstorm.

They will be performing 3 nights in Florida followed by NY & NH.

I believe that life is enhanced by cultural, theatrical performances and experiences.

*Thanks to MPMG for making this experience possible.

Couples Photos with Sydney!

IMG_5873

My Boyfriend Justin and I were fortunate enough to win a couples photoshoot from Sydney of Sydney’s Snaps Photography. I was enamoured by her work and was very excited! We decided on Gastown in Vancouver, BC for the location. Gastown has great significance in our romantic relationship: it’s where we met just over 6 years ago.

Sydney was able to capture the best of us. She gave us great direction and knew all the best locations! It was a truly great experience and something I won’t soon forget.  I would hope you take the chance to check out Sydney’s other work and her facebook page.
