Hi. I'm Megan.

Within the short period of two-weeks, I uprooted my comfortable Vancouver life and moved to Toronto. Now you find me working in Public Relations for a non-profit supporting young entrepreneurs as I set my sights on building my own creative empire. 

In A Sequoia is for those who own being the boss of their life. A source of inspiration for creating intention. Unapologetic vulnerability. Live #thesequoialife.

hauntingly beautiful photos of the abandoned lever brothers factory

I have long admired the creepy, abandoned buildings of the world. Derelict spaces are often thought of an eyesore, which is why I love to find the beauty in them. So when I saw an invitation from thisopenspace (you may remember them from The Mindful Pop-Up!) to explore the Lever Brothers Factory for an afternoon, I couldn't pass.

A former Unilever soap factory built in  1940, the space still smells of the products it used to produce. You could tell which floor was the main laundry detergent space the second you entered it. Sitting on the bank of the Don River, the factory had been closed off to the public since 2009. However it is still a usable space - Suicide Squad filmed scenes on location and I heard a rumour the Batmobile was in the building at some point.

With an hour and a half to explore the building, I naturally went photo crazy. So without further adieu, check out a handful of my favourite shots from the Lever Brothers Factory.
