the latest hustle

As part of living #thesequoialife fully this year, I'm putting more strategic efforts into my side hustles. At any given time, I have three to five hustles on the go, ranging in size and effort. Am I an addict? Yes. Do I mind? No. Side hustles are fun! 

read my lips

I often find the lipstick I pick sets my mood for the day. Or maybe the mood of the day determines the lipstick I pick? Chicken or egg, I love what my lipstick choice says about me. So I'm sharing my favourite three shades and how they impact my attitude. 

summers and alleys

I am fascinated with the way this city is built. From the way Toronto has been designed to move people, to the architecture of every neighbourhood, it's been such an adjustment in my eight months here. In particular, I am obsessed with the multitude and variety of street art. It's everywhere, and it's beautiful. Take the above Queen West mural featuring the infamous white squirrel as an example! 

feeling tropical

I'm going to be super honest. Summer plus-sized fashion causes me stress. This summer has been no exception. In fact, I've been more stressed than usual with my new job. But as I've explored the options I feel comfortable and confident in, this palm-leaf dress has risen to the top.
