On a day-to-day basis, I wear black, white, and grey but sometimes I make exceptions... especially when it's a dress this gorgeous and ethereal
Not gonna lie. I love my beautiful @bycatalfo wrap dress. It's flowy, ultra-soft, and will be accompanying me on my future travels around the world (and to Italy, of course lol)

When I started dance lessons four years ago, it became a different creative outlet and therapeutic release for me. Whenever I found myself in a funk, I would spend hours at the dance studio, taking back-to-back classes with my friends, and it made me feel THAT much better. I loved the challenges that came with the classes; I knew making mistakes and practicing was part of the journey. I loved the community, the friends I made, and the all-round support we had for each other. There were no egos, no judgement, no hostility.

Over a year ago, I made a hard decision to discontinue my membership at my dance studio. My little Luna was having trouble adapting to our new home and I felt it was in her best interest for me to spend more time with her to prevent regression

For the last little while (ok, it's been quite a while), I've been in a strange and difficult place that I didn't really understand how or why. I don't want to elaborate right now but something in me, felt like dance could be part of my healing process; after all, I always found myself in a transformative space when I was immersed in the movement and challenges. So I suddenly found myself walking through my dance studio's doors last Thursday. The first person I saw was my friend/instructor, Kori, who rushed over to me to give me a big long hug. When dance class started, it was incredible to see the support and openness still thriving at my dance studio. I loved being challenged in the class and I also loved the positive environment. I felt confident, happy, and safe.

Being there for the one class made me realize how much I missed dance, the challenges and journey of being a dancer, my friends and the supportive community, and the safe, positive space. I forgot how much dance helped me in the past, and how much I yearn for it to be a part of my life again. I guess what I'm saying is, dance heals and I'm coming back to do what I love (This video is an oldie. I'll try to have something new soon)
Proud to be wearing @michi_ny + @mikayogawear

Dreaming of sunny skies, warm waters, and Sicilian limonata lololll
And I'm totally craving Italian food so badly but I refuse to eat it in Toronto lol. You know what that means... I need to visit Italy again 😉

Sometimes simplicity is the best ... like this delicious plate of light, fluffy pancakes topped with fresh strawberries and powdered sugar made by @belmondhotelsplendido. It was perfect in every way, and no, it didn't last more than 3 minutes lmao

And no, this is not today. I wish I was in Italy right now

I'm not gonna lie... every time I travel, I secretly wish my passport would get lost and I would have to remain in the country for a little longer lololol ... especially when I'm in Italy, and the hotel is @belmondhotelsplendido. I can't stop thinking about the amazing service, amenities, views, and my friends from Belmond Hotel Splendido from my trip in April. Hope to come back to Portofino to say haiii

Happy Father's Day to all the fathers out there. I hope you know you are so loved and cherished

Obviously this isn't a photo of my dad lol but I wanted to give thanks to my dad for everything he has done for my family (it's really too much to list lol)

This photo is actually one of my favourites of Calvin with his mini-me, Jaden. Just look at the love. Calvin, I hope you enjoy today... your first of many, Father's Day 😊 #FathersDay

This was Jaden's first time on grass... and boy, was this little guy so confused, curious, and adorable (all at once).

I can't say enough about these three. They're gorgeous, kind, funny... And Jaden is so adorable and an absolute angel

I was worried I wouldn't get a chance to document this wonderful family because of the weather but I'm so glad we rescheduled on a day that turned out to be perfect in so many ways

Jessica + Calvin: Thank you so much for allowing me to document this special moment in your lives. You guys don't know this, but you brought a lot of sunshine to me that day, so thank you. I hope to see you both again soon!

When it's right, you just know... And you hold onto them real tight and never let them go 😬

Sorry Derrick -- she's stuck on you lol 😬

On location // Tokyo, Japan #throwbackthursday

A little bit of Toronto... in the streets of Tokyo 😉 lol

D & D met with me later at night to finish their engagement session in a street style setting. I'm so glad we did because it doesn't get much more Tokyo than this 😊 And yes, between our break, I stuffed my face in with yakitori and ramen with some of my favourite people

Can't wait to see them in two months when they make it official 😊

As I was travelling from Osaka to Tokyo on the Shinkansen bullet train, I kept texting my amazing couple, Daphne & Derrick, to get Tokyo weather updates. I was worried our engagement session would be cancelled (!) due to the inclement weather

When I arrived in Tokyo that afternoon, it rained on and off and we were thisclose to cancelling. But we lucked out. The rain clouds parted and the sun reappeared. We had an amazing after-rainshower-engagement-session where the lighting was just as perfect as these two lovebirds
