After the new resolution determination wears down and the excitement around ringing in the New Year dies, we’re left reminded that it’s still extremely cold and dreary outside. Though the days may be getting marginally longer, it will be a long time before shorts and sandals will be seen in Canada. These pasty legs will be well hidden under jeans and leggings. As depressing as that sounds, there’s a tonne to get excited about for the next few cold months. Being Canada’s 150th Birthday, a tonne of celebrations are headed our way so strap on those winter boots, put on some mitts, its time to go outside people! Here is a list of some must sees and dos these next few winter months!
Greetings from 2017! I hope everyone had an amazing holiday. We’ve officially wrapped up 2016 and I wanted to close that chapter off in my blog with a video montage of the highlights of the past year.
The past year was definitely an amazing one and I’m excited to see what is in store for this year. I really want to thank everyone for their support in my endeavors and adventures this past year and I can’t wait to embark on many more!
One of the things I would like to upkeep more is this blog! Let’s make this into something great 🙂 I’ve got tonnes planned out for 2017, so cheers! And here’s to the start of a great year <3
P.S. If you guys like videos there may be more coming up on my YouTube channel!
to share some of the highlights of the trip. This is a small photo diary of the time I got to spend with some very special people in Tanzania as part of my final year in school.

Having moved to Montreal recently for a footwear design internship, its been quite the change from comfortable and homey Ottawa. I secured a place downtown, right off of St. Catherine-Ouest and the ever bustling city is filled with chatter and car noises.
Over the past few weeks the sound of french has become comforting and is bringing back the many hours spent in french immersion during high school, which I still firmly believe I did not learn anything in regards to being bilingual (though I have a certificate that says otherwise). Everything is so new, not knowing anyone in the city but thankfully I have some amazing friends who visit me from Ottawa and over the long weekend we got up to a lot of shenanigans exploring the city together. Never have I walked so much, biked until the pain of the potholes still linger and eat such delicious food.
Second season boarding and not to brag but I think I’ve improved a lot since last season! Finally got my first board a gorgeous GNU B-Nice, paired with Ride bindings and Burton Mint boots; I’ve essentially been out on the hills every weekend. School or no school, snowboarding definitely took priority. With that, I managed two trips to Tremblant, which was some of the best boarding ever! I think I can confidently say that Tremblant is one of the best hills on the east coast. Hopefully next year it will be Whistler but here’s a look back at some of the moments captured with my new toy of the new year, the GoPro Hero 4 Silver!

Among all the holiday madness of Christmas shopping I saw these window displays at the Bay downtown Toronto. They were beautifully handcrafted puppets with seasons from a Christmas Tale. It reminded me of my childhood when we could watch the Nutcracker and read Christmas Stories 🙂 I know Christmas has passed, but I couldn’t resist sharing these photos!
