Top 20 Awesome Thunder Bay Holiday Gifts

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The festive lights are twinkling, Home Alone is on repeat,  the streets are bustling and Santa’s are appearing … and you haven’t done any holiday shopping yet? I know, Christmas gift giving can be an absolute nightmare for many, full of stress and the unknowns. What do you get that person who has everything? What can you find for your special someone? Well, don’t get your tinsel in a tangle. I did it for you. As I consider myself a little bit of an expert in shopping (most will attest to that),[…]

Sorry, I’ve been busy.

It happens. Days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, months turn into years and before we know it, our thirties are almost behind us and here we are. Life gets busy, and when you are living a busy life, time moves fast. I hate that word “busy” (as in- ‘Hi! How are you?’ —‘I’m soo busy’ . Wanted!  In need. So many things to do. I am soooo bussssyyyy.) — Can you say BARF!?! For a long time, I actually tried  to completely eliminate it from my vocabulary,  (buh bye BUSY), but this past year the word (busy)  managed to[…]

Downward diggity dog! Inhale the future exhale the past.

I walked into my hot yoga class the other day and laid down my mat in the exact same place I’ve put it for every single session I go to- front left corner, facing the mirror. I noticed some of my fellow yogis starring at me with looks of uncertainty… almost disgust. I thought to myself, well this isn’t normal…this isn’t “namaste” of you. A girl beside me then whispered, “the instructor does the class in a circle.” Ummmm WHAT!? I hadn’t been to this particular class before. A new teacher. So with hesitation and a slight eye roll,  I[…]

Don’t be so shady.

“You’re fat. You look ugly today. You’re not good enough. That was a stupid thing to say. You can’t do it. You’re definitely not worth it. You’re lazy.”  Awful comments right? And guess who made them? These are the actual words WE are saying to OURSELVES on a daily basis. Whatever happened to “if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say anything at all”? You know, the golden rule that every single one of us was taught in the sandbox and landed us in the timeout chair if we didn’t follow through; the rule that was all about[…]

When you’re smiling.

Smiling! That’s something I love to do. No matter what. Smiling is contagious, and is more powerful than you might even know. Smiles set crooked things straight, for real. For starters, smiling is a sure way to brighten your day… I know you are trying it right now… see, smiling makes you feel instantly good. AND even better, has the ability to strengthen our immune system, regulate blood pressure and releases happy endorphins into our body. (I also think smiley people are a little more attractive and memorable as well). However, you, yes you, the average adult, only smiles on[…]
