Last Thursday The Drake Hotel celebrated it’s 10th birthday. I started the night on the roof sipping cocktails and catching up with some of the girls I used to work with at Community. BTW the lobster poutine and popcorn shrimp are both SO GOOD.
Before heading home I joined in the birthday celebration fun that filled the building. Here’s a sneak peek into the festivities! All photos by Becca Lemire for She Does the City. See the full set here.

Can you believe I’ve been GOING to The Drake Hotel for almost ten years!? It’s always a place you can go for a good time to start your night or finish it off. I’ve certainly closed down the place a few times. It’s a spot I always run into a familiar face or make new friends.
Happy Birthday Drake Hotel, you’ll always have a special place in my heart.
A Throwback Thursday Story
I was browsing tumblr last night and I came across this photo of Andy Warhol and was instantly reminded of this old photo of me by Kelly Kruschel from years ago.
It was taken in Liberty Village before all the condos were built, before all the shops, and people took over the neighbourhood. I worked in Liberty Village from 2008-2009 inside the Carpet Factory lofts. I spent lots of time then building my blog, doing events around the city, and making friends. So much time that I used to get in trouble from my boss for blogging at work, and I even took date stamps off my posts so he didn’t know ‘exactly’ when I was posting.
I was determined to get into a media job and applied for a gig via Workopolis w/ MUCH + MTV and knew I was right for the job. I ended up beating HEAPS of people for the role of Social Media Coordinator and started at 299 Queen street in September 2009.
It’s crazy to think about all the things I’ve done since then. Places I’ve travelled, brands I’ve worked with. At the time these photos were taken all those things seemed only possible in my dreams.
Just goes to show you really can do anything you put your mind to.

Last month was the Global premiere and this month the film is making the rounds at the Ottawa Film Festival. Above I’m at the VIP Reception at Hot House Cafe with Antoine Gaber, Producer/ Director of It’s All About Me. See what you missed in the short retrospective film below of the Feature Documentary ” It’s all about ME” from the world premiere screening at COMMFFEST Global Film Festival on 14 September 2013. See all photos from the event here, some of my favs below.
Jenie, Mum, Sean, and I had a blast at this together. So cute!
I spoke on a panel with some of the lead people in the movie after the film premiere.
