Sunny New Orleans w/ Blue Skies & Beignets

Hello from¬†down south! This week I’m in New Orleans staying at Mardi Gran Manor with a few friends from TO. We each have our own apartment in a beautiful set of units behind a big gate in the French Quarter. I’m stocked up on groceries and all moved in for the week. Hoping to catch some sun and start off December with a nice tan. I’m sitting at a¬†small table outside my unit by the pool as I write this. I was here in September¬†to speak at a conference so spent a few hours then getting my bearings. In the French Quarter, we’re a few doors down from Brad & Angelina’s old place and Nicholas Cage has a spot down the street. I love the architecture and the streets are alive with music. All the buildings are hidden behind huge window shutters and or large gates. At first, I thought…

Speaking in New Orleans + Cute Dress from Studio Fitzroy

Last week I flew to New Orleans to speak at a conference, first talk outside Canada. Woo hoo! It was also my first time in NOLA! I’m heading back to New Orleans in November for a week vacation w/ some friends. I was booked via my agency, the National Speakers Bureau,¬†I’ve been with them for about 2 years now. Check out my NSB profile here. My talk was ‘Get Trending: Building Campus Engagement with Digital¬†Media‘ and it went great! Conference attendees stuck around for half an hour after to chat, take selfies, and ask questions. I get a little nervous/excited in the 5min before I go on stage, then, once I get going it’s over before I know it.¬†The Q&A at the end is always my favourite part. I even met someone from who was from my hometown in Cambridge, Ontario. Hi¬†David! The hotel was right beside the Superdome and…

Need New Headshots? No Problemo!

Last weekend on my way home from New Orleans I popped into the Iris Photobooth at the MSY Airport. I’d¬†seen these booths on the internet and really wanted to give it a try. I thought the company was owned¬†by LinkedIn but I have since learned it is not. The¬†pop-up headshot station is marketed to LinkedIn users for new profile photos. Amazing idea if you ask me. Photos are $20 for 6 photos including retouching and you get 1 hi-res download. I unlocked the remaining 5 for $5. I also did 2 sessions because I love having my photo taken! ūüėĚ I think the photos turned out really good despite the¬†fact that my hair wasn’t done, I did my makeup in the car, and had rushed to the airport. The lighting is super bright, almost better than a human headshot setup. (Sorry photographers, the robots are coming!) You can edit the…

You Are My Sunshine, My Summertime, My Love

Hard to believe it’s already¬†September! Where did the summer go? Remember¬†back to March when we had the winter that felt like three years? It was so cold. We all rejoiced for those warm spring days and bright sunshine.¬† This summer was great and lucky for us it’s still feeling hot af outside so it’s not over just yet. There’s still a few weeks of warm days and cool nights. I love this weather.¬†Enjoy these moments while we have them!¬† Muskoka forever. ūüíĖ This week is TIFF and Toronto Fashion Week. I’ve got an appointment at Sassoon, I think it’s back to bleach blonde for me. After TIFF we’ll spend¬†some time at the cottage. Hopefully¬†Thanksgiving too. I’m booked for Cancun before October. Will be¬†heading up to Blue Mountain, then Stratford, and Montreal in October.¬† Booked my ticket for New Orleans in November. It’s going to be the holidays before we know…

HAPPY DECEMBER!

I’m so excited for this month. I love doing Christmas things like baking and getting the tree with Sean and Emily. I love Christmas music! I can’t wait to take the trip of a lifetime w/ my mum. Next week I’m shooting a fun video I already can’t wait to share. Feeling grateful to be starting the month in New Orleans and ending it in New Zealand. It’s been 7 years since I’ve seen ANY of my family and 18 years since I’ve seen most of them! Looking forward to making lots of memories this month. Flying home tomorrow and can’t wait to see my bf! With love from New Orleans!

Cyber Monday, More Like Cyber Funday! ūüĖ•

Did you buy any stuff today? I’ve been out and about around New Orleans but I’m back in my apartment¬†to¬†check on and share a few deals before the day is done. Last week for Black Friday I ordered a new Instant Pot from Amazon and an Echo Dot. I’ve been obsessed with the Instant Post since we got one last year for Christmas and I use it a couple times a week. SOME OF MY FAV DEALS ON AMAZON TODAY!
