I know this may not seem like a big deal to anyone (with small boobs) but today I put on a while tshirt and it actually looked cute. 🙏🏼😀
For the last 20+years every single time I tried to do that simple jeans and a tshirt ‘cool girl no effort’ look, it wasn’t cute. When you have big boobs even the most simple outfit can look…slutty, unflattering. I mean, that’s not the best way to say it but that’s how I felt a million times. Big cleavage busting out, buttons poppin’ don’t even think about wearing a spaghetti strap or tank top. No matter what I wore it was always like ‘HEY BOOBS” or “LOOK ITS TITS MCGEE”.
Whenever I tried to wear one of my BFs GAP v-neck tees, it would be tight on the chest and make me look like a big square. On most girls (with smaller boobs), the shirt drapes nicely and looks cute. Today, when I put a shirt on it was nice to have it be a little loose. I can’t wait to try on more of my clothes starting next week!
I’m still recovering and not ready to get back to the swing of things yet. I went for a walk this morning but then was super tired. It’s hard for me to just sit but I’m trying my best to not move too much. In other news I’m not very hungry and have been eating lots of great good.
I caught my own reflection today when I was out and can’t believe how small I look. Dress was blowing in the wind a bit here too.
TY to my BF for being so lovely during this process. Hannah came by for a hangout this weekend too.
Here’s to a great (SHORT) week!
Sitting in the waiting room with my sister. An hour from now I’ll be in surgery. I can’t wait to have new boobs and ditch some of this weight! I’m looking forward to this all being over and starting a new workout regime in a couple weeks. I’ll be able to wear cute workout clothes for once! And only 1 bra!
In other news, someone’s dad decided the waiting room for surgery was a great place to listen to all the different bird sounds from a bird watching website. I politely asked him to get headphones or stop. I’m in hospital clothes (he wasn’t) so I feel like I can do that rn.
It’s like a mini vacation with every visit, like hitting the reset button. ☀️🌊🚤🙏🏼 Today Sean and I had the best day, ice cream and a car show, then Grand Electric Muskoka for tacos and ceviche. 🍦🚗🌮
TBH I like the Grand Electric Muskoka vibe WAY better than the Queen West location, not as loud and the staff are higher on the chill scale.😎
I’m not really sure how to share this with the world but since I’ve been documenting here for a decade, it’s probably the best spot!
About a month ago I got a phone call that changed my life. Today is the first step before a HUGE life change. I’m getting a breast reduction.
I’ve been talking about doing this since I grew them 20 years ago. 🙆🏼 Last year I went to a doctor and got a referral to a great surgeon. At my appointment he took some measurements and sent the info to OHIP. I didn’t hear anything for about 6 months and then I got the call.
Today my sister is coming to my pre-op appointment. I’m not feeling too nervous because I’ve actually waited a lifetime for this. I’ve had back pain and dents in my shoulders for too long!
I was considering not writing about it but reading other people’s stories on the RealSelf forum has really helped with anxiety and motivation. Hopefully at least one person reading this finds it helpful or inspiring.
Hopefully the appointment today goes well. Nervous excited is my favourite feeling. 💐
UPDATE: My appointment was amazing! My sister and I loved meeting the staff, we had a bunch of laughs and felt like the nurse was one of my friends. I’m pleased to know I won’t be on bed rest and will be totally ok to walk around post surgery, it’s even encouraged. The stitches dissolve which is good bc I’ve seen some gross photos. They take out 50% of the weight and I can’t wait (haha) to know what THAT feels like. I’m soooooo looking forward to being able to run without having them bounce around and exercising in normal exercise not wearing a pile of bras/clothes to hide/secure them.
Feeling very thankful to live in Canada where Ontario Health Insurance Plan covers this. Legit #blessed! In 2 weeks I’m gonna be a new woman. I might even start doing outfit posts!
Since getting my Kobo reader I’ve read more in the last 2 months than I have in the past couple years. 🙈 I used to spend (a little too much) time scrolling my phone before bed, now I scroll a few pages of my book. Reading a book is much better relaxation before bed than reading random tweets or Facebook status updates, trust me on this one. I also really love how easy it is to read in the sun, together we’ve lazed on the dock, rode the sunny streetcar, and chilled in the park.
Last month I accepted the Kobo 7-Day e-reading challenge (read that post here), to replace my print book with a Kobo Glo HD for 7 days. Don’t get me wrong, I love paper books but fitting a pile in your carry-on or daily purse is just NOT practical. Kobo was created to please us fans of print books and tech lovers alike.
Aside from my loonnnng reading list I just learned they have MAGAZINES. 🙆🏼
I’m currently reading HER, a novel by Harriet Lane and have recently finished YOU by Carolyn Kepness and Eight Hundred Grapes by Laura Dave. During the summer I like reading light hearted chick lit or mystery novels. It’s a great way to take my brain on an adventure and step away from work. A few other great things about Kobo
The kind folks at Kobo have given me a device for YOU. The brand new Kobo Glo HD retails for $139.99, comes fully equipped with wifi, customizable fonts/text size/margins, and the battery lasts f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Ok, well not forever but waaaaay longer than your iPhone.
The contest is open to anyone in Canada and runs today till Friday, June 10th. Enter below!
My packages all get delivered to the 1188 office so sometimes I arrive art the office and it’s like Christmas! Yesterday I got a rad present from Blue Moon Brewery & VICE Canada, a party invite in the form of a colouring book with a nice set of pencils. So neat! The drawings are all by The Crazy Plate Lady (check her out here, so cool).
The Twitter conversation continued after this delivery but I still don’t know where we are going or what to pack. I’m thinking I’ll take everything Columbia Sportswear has given me and stay super casual.

On Monday night I went to the Rogers Upfronts. If you’re not familiar w/ TV, it’s where they gather media and advertisers to share stats and introduce new programming. After, they have a huge banger. I laid on the field at 3rd base with a few of my bros and watched the show. After, ate all the snacks and rode the ferris wheel that was INSIDE the Blue Jays Stadium. So cool.
Saw this on my travels yesterday and loved it. You really don’t have to be a genius to make your life a masterpiece, you just have to go out and make it something. When I was a kid I used to write UNEEK on my notebooks. Everything comes full circle!
This morning I’m speaking on a panel at Social Media Week about brands and influencers, it’s gonna be good. Very hot topic rn so quite fitting.
Here’s to a GREAT DAY!
This weekend was so nice and chill. We had a couple friends up at the cottage. Saturday was super sunny and beautiful while Sunday was the perfect lazy, rainy, couch day.
Put the LayBag in the water and it is so awesome. I purchased it after seeing ads on FB and I’m super glad I did. It’s a bit harder to fill up than it looks in the commercial but I’ve almost got it down.
This summer Sean and I have had heaps of time up at the cottage and it’s really helped me chill out. Ever since my digital detox in April I’ve really tried to take some relax time on the weekends.
This weekend I’m going away with Ford Canada on a mystery getaway. If you check the #EscapeandDiscover hashtag on Twitter a bunch of us blogger have been anxiously trying to try and figure out what we’re doing.
Blog friends, #EscapeAndDiscover?
