I’ve always loved baking but I try not to indulge my sweet tooth too often. Thankfully I discovered SugarTwin Stevia! It takes care of my sweet tooth without the added guilt. Now I can make the same sweet treats and reduce the sugar intake, without compromising flavor! SugarTwin Stevia contain no sugar, but still has the look, feel, and taste of real sugar. Doesn’t get much sweeter than that! ;) #Sponsored #SugarTwinStevia #StaySweet

Fall can be a busy time of year for most of us so it’s always great to get an extra boost of energy. That’s why I’ve been loving Tetley Boost Super Tea! Tetley JUST launched a new collection of teas called Tetley Super Teas. This is the first-ever collection of teas in Canada that are fortified with vitamins and minerals! My favourite, the Tetley Boost Super Tea is a delicious raspberry and strawberry green tea that’s fortified with Vitamin B6 - it actually contains 25% of your recommended daily intake - a factor in energy metabolism! #sponsored #Tetley #SuperTea #Vitamins #Minerals #Energy

"I feel confident imposing change on myself. It's a lot more fun progressing than looking back. That's why I need to throw curve balls."-David Bowie 📷 by @toddler777 Bowie's quote feels more relatable than ever. I'm excited to be throwing the curve balls rather than reacting to them. ❤️ Cheers to ya'll! Have a great weekend and do something unexpected today. Shake it up my friends! XOXO

My favourite part of fall is always the new fall fashions! My absolute must this season?! My new pleather biker jacket from George! The George collection at Walmart offers a stylish range of apparel that will transform your wardrobe just in time for the cooler weather. Walmart has everything you need to stay fit and stylish for less this Fall! #sponsored #Walmart #GeorgeCollection #FallFashion #BikerJacket

This is Coconut. We met on set last week. We both love long walks, ice cream and Frank Sinatra. Coconut and I also share a passion for mid century modern design and classic Hollywood cinema. 🐶❤👱🏻‍♀️moment captured by the talented @toddler777

Now that summer is over, it’s time to get back on track with eating healthy! Today, I’m excited to be working with @fairlifecanada, because I’m enjoying one of my favourite healthy breakfast recipes; my Breakfast Berry Smoothie Bowl. Of course, I had to use my favourite fairlife ultrafiltered lactose free milk. While fairlife is delicious on its own, it’s also a nutritious option with 50% more protein and 50% less sugar than regular milk. It’s the perfect fit for this sweet and nutritious breakfast before those busy days ahead! #sponsored #fairlifecanada #HealthyEating #highprotein

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving friends! This is how I am spending the holiday! 🦃! I am extra thankful for my amazing trainers @bangballfitness @aussie_fit ❤Thank you for getting me back on track, motivating me and being two of the most important humans in my life. 💁🏼No mashed potatoes for me this year! #jokes #temppost #grateful

My travel schedule has been packed over the past few months, so I need cosmetics that go the extra mile. I’m loving the @No7usa Airbrush Away line now @shoppersdrugmartofficial. Their tinted skin perfector double duties as a primer and foundation! It helps blur my pores (lines and wrinkles too!). It’s also packed with Vitamins A & E to soothe and condition my travel-weary skin. All that AND colour adjusting pigments to match my skin tone! What’s not to love?! #No7Partner #No7 #No7usa #skincare #makeup

When my career started taking off, I hacked my hair off, lost and gained weight (I’d never had a problem before), became socially withdrawn… speaking engagements required me (emotionally) to have my team by my side. Red carpets, forget it- “I need to be on that thing alone?” Invites piled up. I focused on my much-loved safe places for work—morning shows (working with the kindest producers invented) furniture design (in my quiet studio) shoots were only allowed if the photographer was also a friend—no strangers please!! I avoided much of life and made myself unattractive as a coping mechanism, a reason to hide.
I didn’t realize I was doing this until a very insightful and trusted human in my life observed that as a child it looked like I was deliberately made to look unattractive. My mother (bless her) would cut my hair so extremely short, my style wasn’t that of a little girl, there was the occasional dress but most often it was boys hand-me downs. I was never told, “you are pretty”. In my mother’s defence, her mother was very much about “looks”, my mom wanted to teach me appearance doesn’t make a person. I agree to an extent. But what I did is make unattractive my “comfort zone” and as soon as things got to be “too much”, I reverted. By too much, I mean too much good. Who was I to deserve happiness and success?
After this realization my eyes and mind were wide open. I started taking stock of behaviours. Especially my behavior when I am south of the border in LA… (Canada is a little more “safe” for me)… The number of cool business opportunities I had turned down, TV shows (I would find the smallest l flaw in every one and walk away), collaborations (why would they want to work with me?). I realized I would only “do” if I knew the outcome—If “it” was in my comfort zone.
For the past few months I have been working really hard to connect to my true self and open the door to change (through study, therapy, meditation)…. And guess what? I am coming back to me. A new me, a me I never let out before. A me that deserves all the good people, the opportunities. The me that is saying yes! After all, the unknown is where dreams are made. ✨
