I first met Trina Hendry when she ran the PR for the LCBO in Toronto, Canada. She was often hosting cool wine tasting and blogger events that our paths crossed a few times.
However, it was only when she moved to Los Angeles about a year after I moved, did we really connect. I truly admire Trina’s skill as a communicator and writer. If you’re considering a career in PR or hospitality, Trina’s professional journey is a great one to follow. Meet Trina Hendry everyone! Here’s how she got her start: (more…)

Since moving to Portland from Los Angeles last year, I have been re-introduced to a long, cold and rainy winter. With that, I’ve been cooking more of these comfort food recipes, finding rainy day activities in Portland and drinking A LOT of tea. I drink a lot chamomile tea because I love the taste and the relaxing health benefits.
It’s a nice and comforting thing I look forward to when the weather is just miserable outside. We broke records in Portland for rainfall in the months of October, February and March so far! (more…)

I have been an allergy sufferer all my life.
I am allergic to cat hair, pollen, and dust to name just a few of my triggers. I definitely feel it more in the spring when things start blooming and floating around.
Sometimes my allergies are triggered when I’m invited over at a friend’s house for dinner, but then I encounter their cat. Which triggers my allergies so badly that I either have to leave early or it just ends up ruining my whole night as my symptoms leave me miserable. I once went to a horse show and the dust and hair was so bad, I had to leave within 30 minutes of arriving. (more…)
I finally made the jump to the Fitbit and I’ve become obsessed with my Fitbit Alta fitness tracker. I’m aiming to get 10,000+ steps a day and have started making these small changes. I know I don’t hit it everyday, but it’s important to me that I’m trying.
The next step was investing into a scale that I was excited about and was accurate about my progress. Which is why I chose the Fitbit Aria Scale. If you’re already an active Fitbit user, the scale might be a great next step (pun intended). Here’s what I thought of the scale: (more…)
I’m a paper planner sort of person.
I’ve been eyeing Whitney English’s Day Designer for a long time, but couldn’t bring myself to drop the $60 it costs for this giant day planner. After purchasing her more affordable and smaller Target version for $16, I knew I was ready to make the upgrade.
I am SO glad that I did. First off, the Target version was just a little too small. It was great for slipping into my backpack, carry-on or purse – but there wasn’t enough room for me to really create a proper to-do list and schedule. (more…)
