It's taken a while, but my 2019 goals are up on the blog, along with some motivational words to keep me going! Would also love to hear yours!
I love to dance. Having spent ages two through eighteen taking tap, jazz, ballet, and musical theatre lessons, dance has very special place in my heart. Which is why I was thrilled to do a City Girl Connects interview with iDance Vancouver owner and former professional ballerina, Amanda Hemmaway, to talk about why dance is important, the mission of iDance, and why everything should be seen as an opportunity to learn.
It’s well past the midway point of January, but I’m posting my 2018 reflections and gratitude anyway. Better late than never, and I finally have the headspace to translate the chicken scratches from my notebook. Looking back on 2018, I achieved some of my goals, had to put others on hold, and for the most part, managed to field any challenges with will and grace. (P.S. The reboot is amazing, you need to watch it.) Most importantly, I had fun. In no particular order, these are my favourite things about 2018.
Yep, you read that title correctly – I just turned 35, and just before that, I had my first ever proper facial at Downtown Vancouver’s Wedgewood Hotel & Spa. (If you have no desire to read about that, and want to skip to the experiences gift ideas list, click here!) I was told by my aesthetician, Anny, that, technically, having had microdermabrasion and my regular face masks can be considered a facial, but this was a proper facial and I was going to love it. And I did!

It’s #EntrepreneursDay and Global Entrepreneurs’ Week! I still don’t know that I would classify myself as such, but I am surrounded by some amazing female entrepreneurs that inspire and motivate me every day. Meredith Garritsen at Hervana is one of those inspirations, and not only is she good people, she has the dubious honour of having helped me save my sanity the week before we moved to Victoria. (She’s also given a great prize for the contest at the end of this post!)
The temperature has officially gone from crisp to chilly in Victoria and I am here for it. It’s time to get cozy! I’ve loved unpacking and feeling hygge in all of my cozy sweaters and scarves, and my feet are such happy campers in my slippers.
