What will you do to #UpgradeYourWorld ?

What will you do to #UpgradeYourWorld ?

Helping someone pick up items they’ve dropped, carrying someone’s groceries to the car for them, volunteering your time with a non-profit, offering a friend a shoulder when they need someone to talk to—these are all easy ways to #UpgradeYourWorld. No act is too small; we can each do our part. From birth, the importance of volunteering time and money for initiatives small and large has been instilled in me. My mom and brother led by example, and I appreciate their influence on me and how I … [Read more...]

Get your Car Organized for Summer Adventures

Get your car organized for summer adventures

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser.

Summer is a time of spontaneity for me. I like to keep my schedule light so that I can throw a few things in the trunk and be off on a summer adventure on short notice. I like to think that I'm a … [Read more...]

Visit Fort Langley National Historic Site – Vancouver Area Travel

fort langley

When I think about the types of places I most like to visit, one that comes to mind is a small village. I’m sure you can picture, it now—one main street with little cafés, restaurants, coffee shops, gift shops, maybe a hardware store, too. The façades are a little older and time-worn, benches line sidewalks, people stroll along—there’s no hustling here. The word idyllic comes to mind. That is exactly how one would describe the village of Fort Langley. After spending time wandering the main … [Read more...]

Be Your Own Hero with Marvel’s Ant-Man #AntMan (with Free Printable)

be the hero

One thing I love about watching super-hero movies during the summer is that I feel all energized, and ready to take on new and exciting projects in the fall. Along with chilling (literally) in a movie theatre, I'm able to step in to another world, and figure out what's most important to me—what and who I'd fight for, if I needed to. The latest superhero movie I've seen is Marvel's Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd. The mention of that actor's name was enough to get my movie-watching companion … [Read more...]

When it starts getting hot out, it's all "summer, summer, summertime" in my head. Yeah, like from the DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince song.

Lucky for me, as a Menchie's Ambassador, I'll be enjoying cold treats at Menchie's locations this summer! Yippee! There's a location (with an awesome view of the Burrard Inlet and Lower Lonsdale) nearby where I live, in … [Read more...]

Packed Schedule Calls for #LaundryRedefined

packed schedule - #laundryredefined
