Organize your life.

No matter if you’re a part-time freelancer or a full-time one you need tools and apps that are going to help you stay organized. I’m the type of person that can remember a million things off the top of my head but these apps definitely help. I have shared my top favourite time tracking, task management, invoicing, accounting, and contract apps below and why I love them! Oh yeah, I forgot to mention they’re all FREE!

Networking can be fun!

Networking has always been hard for me (surprisingly). But, it’s how I build connections and found clients. It’s a tool that will always come in handy!

These questions always pop into my mind:
“oh… should I introduce myself now?”
“Shit… I only brought 4 business cards and one went into the lucky draw!”
“Ugh.. how do I leave this convo without making it awkward.”

Soy Candles FTW

Peach Bellini.
Black tie.
Japanese Cherry Blossom.
Sweet pea.
Vanilla Bean Noel.

What does all that shit have in common? No, not that they’re all from Bath and Body Works! They are all made with paraffin wax.

Gurl before I understood how bad cheap paraffin wax candles are for you… I was always stocking up at Bath & Body Works for their seasonal scents. If you know me now I am a huge soy candle lover after I discovered how much better they are and not to mention how much longer they burn!

Travel Junkie – Asia

This Asia trip is the first big trip I have taken since being self-employed, and it was such a great experience. From the food to the people I have nothing bad to say at all (and thank the lord that I did not get food poisoning … AGAIN!)

To begin, this seasons tickets to Asia were at such a great price especially when the weather there still felt like summer. I flew with HK airlines and it cost me $560 for an RT from YVR to HKG. The upside was that the ticket was cheap, however, the flight there and back didn’t have a TV screen nor did they have a USB port to charge your electronics. They provided iPads, but I guess I can’t complain if the tickets were so cheap.

Trip duration: 16 Days
Trip total cost: $2,500
Cities visited: 4
Favourite destinations: Ho Chi Minh + Hong Kong

Check yo tits.

Do not take your tits for granted. They may cause you pain and soreness when the time of the month rolls around, but they can also help you skip the line at the club or get you a couple free drinks from time to time (you know you’ve still got it!).

It is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I want to encourage all of you ladies to get your breasts examined. I’m going to share with you something very raw and real and hopefully leave you very grateful for your boobies, and also encourage you to check them and get them checked!

Leaving the nine-to-five.

I just finished running a quick work errand before I headed back to the office and I see a girl walking on the street with her Lululemon yoga mat in one hand and a cold-pressed juice in the other.

My exact thoughts, “It’s 11 in the fucking morning… does she not have a job? I bet she’s heading home right now to make herself a post-workout avocado on toast.”

I need her job.

The scene I just described to you happened to me about half a year ago. No joke, and was one of the moments that made me realize that I needed to leave my 9-5. Let me just start off by saying that I didn’t hate my job. I loved my job but I needed a change in environment and more growth because it started to feel like the same shit, different pile.

Claim time for yourself.

You need you time.

Everyone needs to set time aside for themselves, not matter how busy your day, week or month is. The importance of having down time for yourself comes down to being one with your

Event Prep

A lot of times people ask me how the heck I have time to manage 7 social media accounts, work a full-time job and attend events. Tbh, sometimes idk how I function with close to no downtime. But, nonetheless, I make each event I attend worth my while.

Attending events is crucial to my career (for anyone in PR tbh #realtalk) for not only networking but learning purposes. Often times after an event I feel rejuvenated and refreshed; usually from a shift in mindset, learning something new, or a good kick in the butt kind of reminder of some sort.
