    Ep. 7 – Kellie Inglis

    Let’s talk about personal style, being confident in our current body, embracing change, and the emotions of a closet clean. Digging deep into embracing change and finding confidence in the body we have now with Kellie Inglis from Soul Restyled. Kellie and I chat about body image, dressing the body we have now, going out with rollers in our hair (shout out to Reese Witherspoon’s Whiskey in a Teacup and this hilarious Jennifer Garner video!), styling ourselves from the inside out, and needing tissues during a closet clean—because it’s way more emotional than you think!  There was a lot to unpack for both of us in this round of girl talk,…

    Ep. 6 – Jana Josue-MacLaren

    Let’s talk about burnout, photography, how you aren’t always ready for your own energy, and why it’s important to be yourself. This week’s guest is photographer Jana Josue-MacLaren. Based in Vancouver, Jana loves to work with natural light and photograph people to create images that communicate their most authentic selves. Knowing from a young age that she wanted to be a teacher, Jana thought her path was very clear. But suffering from burnout created an interesting shift that made following her side-hustle dreams a necessity—and she’s rocking it. We chat about being cluttered, being yourself, career changes, and how you aren’t always ready for your own energy. She also shares…

    Let’s talk about not comparing ourselves, moving cities, naughty dogs, winter weddings, and money mindset. This week’s guest is Meagan Murtonen from Victoria’s Botanica & Bloom one of my lovely friends in Victoria. Meagan is a wedding planner (no, I’m not getting married 😉 ), florist and lifestyle blogger who moved to Victoria around the same time I did last year—how has a year go by so fast?!

    Ep. 4 – Dylan McCansh

    Let’s talk about resilience, rent or buy, nourishing female relationships and being an extroverted introvert. On another recent lightning-quick trip to Vancouver (to see Elton John!), I had a chance to sit down with real estate dynamo and fellow yogi, Dylan McCansh. Dylan shares her thoughts on rent vs. buy in Vancouver, why female relationships are so important for women, and why she’s grateful for her resilience. We also touch on why everything IS figureoutable—thank you Marie Forleo! A fellow born-and-raised Vancouverite, Dylan is a business owner, avid writer, walker, talker and dog lover. Her story is really inspiring and she’s an inspiration for anyone who might be going through a…

    Ep. 3 – Meredith Garritsen

    Let’s talk about building community, NOT keeping up with the cool kids, and growing as a leader. When I was last in Vancouver, I popped into Hervana Coworking Collective to to get some work done, and settled in for some girl talk with Hervana founder, Meredith Garritsen. Hervana is an environment for female entrepreneurs to accelerate their success through community— and I love to spend time there. We chatted about building community, NOT keeping up with the cool kids, and learning to be a leader of grace (she tells a fantastic story we can all relate to!). I say “like” more than I’d prefer, Meredith and I both need to get…
