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.
This is kind of a bit of a milestone for me – I have written my first “list” article for a website that’s not my own! I really am a sucker for sweet treats and with the weather getting hotter and budgets getting tighter, it’s always good to look for the best value.
Check out my article here – Likes/Shares with all the social links on the left hand side give me a really good chance of making this go viral which would be immensely beneficial for my chance at future content. I would LOVE to know what you think!
Today I was told that I come across as “a bit entitled”.
I feel like that’s the farthest from the truth. I am an incredibly direct person who tends to include factual information and I ask a lot of questions. If a certain channel doesn’t yield any answers, I try another channel. Yes, I am an incredibly persistent person but that should not be confused with entitled.
I seek informative answers, I seek consistency. I seek an answer, whether that’s acceptance or rejection, I feel as though I’m worthy of either versus just being ‘ghosted’. Being completely ignored.
My story and my passion is one that is mixed with drive, acceptance, awareness and equal opportunities. I have a mission to showcase products, attractions, experiences and opinions with my wide array of different visitors–both Neurodiverse and NT.
I wish there was a general understanding that I am not doing this blog to get free stuff. I am creating content because I want to show the world a very unique point of view. This is a niche. This is my passion and I love to create media rich content—it allows me to be creative which is a huge part of my identity. I have been told by a very prominent local blogger that I should be charging for all the work I do. I have not made a cent.
Please don’t pass judgement. Education is key and incorrect labels do not help anyone.
I want to introduce you guys to my Nephew and Niece, Ben and Stella. They are charming kids and have a lot of honest opinions! We would like to extend a gracious THANK YOU to Alex Brands for sending us some Toys in exchange for our review.
The story may be familiar as it is based on the 2001 film of the same name! Elle Woods is a sorority girl who decides to attend Harvard Law School to win back her ex boyfriend, Warner Huntington III. She meets Emmett, her Professors’ Teaching Assistant and they quickly become quite chummy. Defining herself as a perfectly capable – and intelligent woman, who just happens to like pink–she learns quickly and helps her new-found Esthetician, quirky Paulette, get her dog back. That small victory was just the beginning. Later in the play she exercises her direct nature and new found knowledge to win a murder case by proving Exercise Queen Brooke Windham innocent of all charges. Along the way Elle’s three friends Margot, Serena and Pilar keep things interesting with their musical numbers and comical interjections.
Julia Ullrich dazzles as the bubbly Elle Woods (surprisingly enough I had seen her as Veronica in Fighting Chance Productions “Heathers: The Musical” where she was absolutely incredible), She powerfully commands the stage.
I have to say, the casting is spot on and all the characters perfectly play their roles. The music is catchy with the “OMIGOD” song carrying you throughout the play.

The choreography and sets were perfectly executed, creating an almost dreamlike ambiance. The orchestra gave me goosebumps, there’s nothing quite like experiencing live music! I was super impressed with the attention to detail which was incredibly pleasing both in a visual and auditory fashion. I have enjoyed Broadway shows and can tell you that the amount of talent on the stage is transcendent. It is the perfect escape!
This marvellous adaptation of the feature film runs from February 2 to the 17th with tickets starting at $27! $15 special pricing on February 12th for Family Day.
I believe we should get to the point where talking about our mental health is a regular thing we can participate in and completely free of judgment. I don’t believe it is right to capitalize on mental health/wellness/illness for financial gain. I also don’t think it should be segregated to one day of the year that is decided on by a multi-billion dollar telecommunications giant.
Let’s talk about it, I think we need a new hashtag.
