OUR {UN}BLOG

This is an {un}blog, and not really a blog (because I never really do anything completely conventionally), but I certainly do have a lot to say and share (for those of you who know me, you did not need me to spell this out). I’m SO fortunate to be able to connect with people, products, and ideas that I find incredibly inspiring every day, and I hope to use this virtual space to give you an inside look into what’s going on in my (crazy) world…which, I share with you.

Along with my small but mighty team, we will be posting content under 3 main departments, and encourage you to share with us as well. If something excites or outrages you, if you have a product or service that we should know about, or should you have any comments, complaints, criticisms or compliments please be in touch.

TRENDS

Although we typically use our Roundup to look back and reflect on the news and lessons from the month that was, today, we are all about looking forward and moving forward, because we think (hope) there’s so much ahead for us all!

Watch and Learn

We are living in a society where we are used to taking the stage on social media, but how often do we let ourselves be audience members?

Being a deliberate observer can be stimulating, thought provoking, and challenge behaviours in incredible ways. (more…)


Think you have morals, values, or ethics?

“If you don’t stick to your values when they’re being tested, they’re not values: they’re hobbies.” –Jon Stewart

Does an overdeveloped sense of morality make you less likely to act ethically in real life?

Gut Check

What is your gut telling you these days?
Are you listening?

The gut is brilliant and intuitive, and more often than not, if we can get out of the head and check in with the gut, we make much more fulfilling, meaningful and connected decisions.

Black Friday and A Culture of Overconsumption

BLACK FRIDAY AND A CULTURE OF OVERCONSUMPTION

Black Friday (and all the mania, buzz, and savings that come with it) is one of the biggest shopping periods of the year, with many companies extending their sales for way longer than the original day, leading up to and beyond Cyber Monday.

Not All Toothpaste is Created Equal

Healthy smiles make the best first impression. They’re the most effective and natural beauty trick, and an indication that you are healthy both physically and mentally. To keep our pearly whites shining their brightest, and feeling great and fresh, it’s important to visit your holistic dentist for regular checkups, and develop a good oral routine, but…

Not all toothpaste is created equal. (more…)

Although we appreciate the strong foundation our experience affords us in our daily work, we take great pride in being open-minded, listening, understanding, learning and staying nimble in an ever-changing world.
