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.

How Many Times Do I Have to Say the Same Thing?

Many that I speak with believe they are telling their story well, many do not understand the value of investing in social media, thinking it’s just noise and nonsense, and many are confident that their website has all of the information people are looking for, in order to realize the results they desire.

How Are You Spending Your Food Dollars?

Walking down the aisles of the grocery store, it seems we have option after option of food brands to choose from. If there’s something we don’t like about one (say, for example, their total disregard for our health or the planet), we can move on to the next. But who owns that product we’ve picked up instead?

Monthly Maintenance for Your WordPress Blog

Whether you’ve invested a lot of time or money (or both) into building your website, protect that investment and your online presence by keeping up basic maintenance on your site. Like with anything in our lives, we must put some effort in on an ongoing basis to avert huge investment at once. From spring cleaning our homes to our own bodies, maintenance is the healthiest way to care and benefit. (more…)

Valentine’s Day Links of Love

It’s that time of year again, where for one “special” day we’re reminded to celebrate our love for one another. Although we believe we shouldn’t need a reminder (showing our love is important every day!), we’ll take any excuse to spend more time with our families and do something special together and celebrate as society promotes!

IWM: Yashar Khosroshahi

We spoke with Yashar Khosroshahi, naturopathic doctor + brain-based executive coach, and co-founder of MINDSHIFT Ninja. (Actually, we connect with him quite often since he’s Megan’s husband — and we look forward to cuddling their new baby boy, born on December 29th, 2015). (more…)


Forget Resolutions, Commit To Best Practices

After the past few days of having my inbox and social media streams flooded with “must-do now” lists advising me how to be lighter, healthier, happier and more successful, I have decided to reverse my decision to not write a new year resolution post, and chime in. (more…)


Good People Make Good Food In Toronto

Whether you live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, or are travelling anywhere, celebrate local growers, producers, makers, and shakers.

The holiday season is in full swing, with parties, presents, and lots of good cheer. There’s still time to find the perfect gifts, but the reason you may be having so much trouble in your search is because we already have too much stuff. So this year we encourage you to think outside of the gift box and give a gift that is sure to be appreciated! (more…)
