Beauty & Blessings: This Week’s Goodie Bag UPDATED!

For some of you, you may have read this on Thursday and thought “It’s not the weekend.” Well, while writing this post, I accidentally pressed a short cut that published it before I was done. I’m not perfect. Life’s not perfect but I’m going to just keep going….lol


Hello Wonderful Souls,

Happy Weekend! The theme of this week’s goodie bag is Super (ROLE) Models.

Our world is quick to glorify celebrity status and super models when the truth, we are in desperate  need of some Super ROLE Models. This goodie bag features the boys and girls who are doing just that…being Super ROLE Models to this generation and generations to come. Join me …you just might find yourself inspired.


The Catalyst…

Ben Malcolmson is a game changer. He is someone who walks the walk and talks the talk. He has failed (on more than one occasion), been discouraged, and even doubted his purpose (sound like anyone you know? ouuuu pick me, pick me!). BUT his story reminds us that things aren’t always how they look. God has a way of working ALL things for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28) and leaving us “Utterly Amazed.” This is a story of failure, vulnerability, courage, gritty determination, and ultimately a Dangerous Love that proves to be game changing. Watch, listen and be…utterly amazed.


The Lifestyle Changer…

The Green Living Show is one of my favourite trade shows to attend every year. If you are like me and are interested in eco & healthy living and you are in the Toronto area, you may want  to check it out.

Best of all, FREE ADMISSION is available if you bring one of the following:

1. Old electronic to recycle (details available on their website)
2. Presto card
3. Live Green Card
4. March Metro Pass


The Companies of Companies…

Entrepreneurship comes with its share of benefits and challenges. Over the past 5 years, the idea of shared spaces has become uber popular…In Canada, we have CSI (Centre for Social Innovation) and more recently, I learned about WeWork. Both are among the many bringing people together to create amazingness side-by-side.


The Voice…

I first came across this talented soul (Corey Kent White) while watching The Voice and well like any good thing, it’s worth sharing! Enjoy:)


The Kid…

This Kid (President) is…AWESOME.


The KINDsters…

Each week, I’ve been trying something new in the kitchen. Last week, I tried my hand at making roasted sardines (which tasted yummy but required getting messy de-gutting the fish). This week, I snagged myself some parsnips, which I’ve never bought before but for $0.99 for the bag, it was worth a shot. And this was the inspiration…
