Day 60: Kale ‘Em w/ Kindness

Raining. Long weekend. Quarantine. Guess this weather makes it easier to stay at home!? 🥳

This weekend I’m gonna do another round of tie-dye, finally got some colours. #Whatever shirt is from the gang at HideSeek, and these pants were V1 of my bleach dye. I tried to dye over another piece in The Recess Collection and ended up creating…a blank canvas! Whoops! 😬 I always did like things one of a kind! 👩🏼‍🎨

I was so happy to find this jumpsuit in my closet. I ordered it last summer but it was too small. Thankfully my hard work has paid off and it fits perfectly now. I am not going to tie-dye this one! 😜

We picked up this beautiful big kale the garden centre last weekend and SHE IS THRIVING. Hoping to spend some time in the garden this weekend getting it ready for summer.

Hope you are doing ok. Reach out to me anytime. I’m around, in the woods, hoping for sunshine, and filling carts w/ things I probably won’t buy.

Something that has really been lifting me up is @Ryan Heffington’s Sweatfest dance class, it’s on Saturday at 3pm EST via IG Live. If you need a BOOST check out yesterday’s class on his IGTV. I’ve been having dance parties w/ Jen_kirsch & Jo on Houseparty and doing the class together. It fills me with so much love and light I just about float right off the ground. ☁️☁️☁️☀️🌈🌎💃🏼🌟

Please, if you are going out this weekend, stay safe. Miss you. 💖

Day 59: Support Your Friends!

Right now, more than ever we need to support our friends! We are all in this together and we will get through it by being there for each other, at a distance!

Social media is an amazing tool to share the things you love, you like, and support others. This tweet has been pinned to the top of my Twitter profile for over a year!

Last night I joined in a pop-culture trivia game on Facebook hosted by my friend Alex. Follow her on IG @lexniko, I love the content she creates and she’s funny AF.

Today my friend Mariah sent me a message about her latest project, a film called Pamela & Ivy. I know I don’t do movies reviews often but today her message came just as I was about to have lunch. So, I watched it and put a few notes into a post here. You can also watch the full 16-minute film in the post or on YouTube.

Mariah and I had been internet friends for a little while and last year we met for a coffee date. It was so since to meet face-to-face! I am inspired by her work and how much she has accomplished at a young age. She founded GTE Productions at 21 and is an award-winning actress & filmmaker. Her talent is out of this world!

After lunch, I went to the post office to ship a wee package of a card & friendship bracelet + an item from Knixwear. I am so impressed with their customer service! A couple of weeks ago I placed an order from the warehouse sale and when the package arrived, the order wasn’t correct. That same afternoon I was refunded for the missing items and they asked that the wrong size item I received was gifted to a friend or Women’s Shelter. I loved that idea so I sent it to a friend!

If you love creating content and know someone who is making it, tell them, share their posts with your friends. We all need to stick together!

Canadian Women in Film | Review: Pamela & Ivy

My friend Mariah messaged me today about her latest project Pamala & Ivy. I know I don’t write film reviews that often but this film was written and produced by Canadian women in film and I am happy to show some support!

I watched the 16-minute feature over lunch. You can watch it below or on YouTube.

This is Mariah! Award-winning Actor & Director, Producer @gteproductionsinc

Pamela & Ivy is the untold, female-made, feminist origin story of DC antiheroine Poison Ivy. The film is beautifully shot and although short, has strong characters. I was taken in from the first 60 seconds. I am so proud this was created by someone I know and by strong Canadian women in film.

Watch Pamela & Ivy Below!
