KNOWLEDGE IS THE NEW PRETTY

When I was a kid, I had this board filled with pinned articles of people that would play a large role in my life. They inspired and influenced me daily in my goal to achieve success. These individuals ranged from entrepreneurs, philanthropists, geniuses, and even educators. All of these individuals had two things in common…grit, which I covered in a previous blog post, and a deep affirmation for knowledge. Anyone who knows me, personally or professionally, has realized that I don’t like to end my day unless I have learned something new. To me, knowledge is powerful and the new pretty.…

TWO TO FOUR

Being a mom of twins and having a career is a balancing act. Everyday is a learning process with its own set of challenges.

INDULGE

In Toronto, we have two seasons – winter and construction. But for foodies like myself, my two seasons consists of dinning indoor or on the patio. My favorite of course is patio season, so when the hubs took a week off for vacation we took full advantage of one restaurant I have been longing to visit since I delivered my twins. Even better, we made our reservation on the first day they opened up their patio. When it comes to dinning on patios, the one at Kasa Moto is actually amazing and one you really need to visit.
