A sister by any other name would be as sweet…

Or the bane of your existence.

Your relationship with your sister can really only go one of two ways, right? You’re either best friends or you’re not.

There’s never a question of love, I mean, she is your sister. And there is also no question that at some point in your life, you probably wanted to throttle her. There’s a famous quote, for which I could not find a source – If you don’t understand how a woman could both love her sister dearly and Read More

What’s in your bucket?

It’s been years since Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman took us on a wild ride as they checked things off their bucket list, but it seems to be a really big thing to do these days. There are a myriad of sites and books with list of things to do before you die, often accompanied by fabulous photographs. Definitely swoon-worthy.

Many people I know have them, too. They’re massive lists filled with exotic places they want Read More

Walk on the sunny side

The heat and humidity of summer, the frigid temps in winter, traffic jams, snarky people, dirty dishes piled in he sink. There are so many things that can trigger a black mood faster than you can flip a switch.

What do you do when that dark cloud starts sliding into your consciousness? Do you do everything Read More

When did you know it was love? Was it love at first sight? Was it your first pair of red shoes? Or black patent Mary Janes? Platforms? Or those strappy roman sandals?

We do love our shoes, don’t we? Every style, shape and colour, we love them.  Sometimes a little more agony, than ecstasy. Sometimes bordering on obsession, but still Read More

Is it time to come out of the closet?

Do you have a dream sitting on a shelf in your closet waiting for ‘someday’? Did you always want to paint? Play the piano? Learn French? Become a stand-up comic? (Remember the movie Punchline?)

It may well have been the right decision years ago to shelve that dream. You had the kids, husband and mortgage to think about. It was too risky, once you started your family. But, what’s stopping you Read More

You are enough

In a world where we are so constantly connected to each other, digitally, at least, the idea of being alone is frightening for some people. It seems we’re afraid to be by ourselves. For some it’s because they wouldn’t know what to do with themselves. Others maybe just so used to doing things with husband, kids, friends, the idea is foreign to them. The art of solitude is slipping away.

Somehow we’ve developed an idea that being alone is not a good thing. We equate it Read More

Are you bored, tired of the daily grind? Burnt out, bummed out? Or just zoned out? Why not seek out a little adventure?

Skydiving or parasailing may not be in your bailiwick, but that’s not a problem. Adventure doesn’t have to be big – just shake Read More
