When the Huffington Post comes knocking at your door you basically drop everything you’re doing, and simply answer yes to all questions asked, and you ask none of your own. Well maybe accept for the dress code for the event because let’s be honest if you‘re going to roll up: you want to do it RIGHT. (Thanks to Sweet Pea Boutique for this perfect perfect dress!)
While I was there (for less than 24 hours) I managed to sneak in a little dinner with some of my favorite blogger boos (Amanda, Joelle, Gabriella, Kaylee, and Angela) at El Catrin in the distillery district. I also made myself get up before my flight, and do a little touring around. I hit the St Lawrence Market, I even treated myself to a delicious bagel with cream cheese (St Urbain Bagel), and a hot coffee from Balzac‘s (much needed and also my fave). I then made my way to the baby flat iron (I like to call it), and I just had a very quiet and reflective morning by myself.
While I fully appreciate the irony of putting one’s self all OVER the internet for display I really have other intentions for my blog than being the next Kimmy K. I’m trained as a teacher, and I really just want to help people look and feel better about themselves, and my blog and the work is actually the easiest way to reach a wider audience. Whether it’s a new healthy recipe or a cute date night outfit or travel suggestions my hope is to inspire you dearest blogger in anyway that I can. I want to share everything I’ve learned with you. I always say I’m basically just a giant blabber mouth of all things food, fashion, beauty and travel lol!
You might be surprised to know that I didn’t even start my blog (insert embarrassed monkey emoji) it was given to me; so I count my lucky stars every single day that someone else had the foresight to see something in me that I may never have found myself.
My blog, and my work with the Huffington Post has really been incredible, and I can’t imagine my life without it. I absolutely adore contributing to the Style Rescue Franchise. I’ve experienced SO much, and met so many amazing people, and having had a very modest upbringing I may never have experienced or seen these things otherwise. I really can’t wait to see where it takes me (us) next!
