De-Flowered: My First Ross Petty!

Yahoo! If you know anything about ANYTHING in the theatre biz in Toronto — read this in a slight British lilt — you know that Ross Petty Productions pantomimes are hi-lariously infamous (or so I’ve heard!) So last night, courtesy of the lovely gals (and manly man) at FLIP Publicity, I had the opportunity to experience my…

Inked!

Yup, this post is exactly about what you think it will be about: the age old art of tattooing. I got my first one at the age of 18-almost-19 years old: the summer after my first year at university. I had tons of ups and downs that year, as it usually fares when you live…

The Scoop: Black Friday on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile

So in typical Paige fashion — I seem to say this a lot don’t I? — I have overspent on my vacation in Chicago. I have never spent so much money in such a short time period, notwithstanding my winter jacket purchase last winter. But I picked up so many great deals and finished the…

Things I Learned in Chicago

If I eat three spinach sticks, I can only eat one slice of deep dish from Gino’s East Pizza. That’s a fact. Always wear hair in a ponytail or tied back. If not, wear a headband, or hair will become rat’s nest. Chicago is indeed the windy city. I have a serious, serious, serious shopping problem….

Ugh, Delays

Flight to Chicago delayed until further notice. I’ll find out in 16 minutes what’s up.   Air Canada is the worst airline…they have absolutely no weight in the airline world, especially in the United States. They’re like the smelly person at work that nobody wants to spend any unnecessary time with.   Ugh, I am…

Hello Chi City

The city made famous by deep-dish pizza, Kanye West, a plethora of pretty decent sports teams (that’s more than MLSE can say), and its tendency to be super windy. Oh, and that musical that happens to be my ONLY favourite musical. CHICAGO! Since I did not have the opportunity to climb the snow-capped mountains of Mt. Kiliminjaro in…

Diabetes Awareness Month!

As you may know, I am always a fan of the underdog: you know that girl (or guy) who you’re secretly rooting for in that new romantic comedy, because she (or he) is always getting the short end of the stick. Why shouldn’t they get the fame and glory?! I mean, they work just as hard as…

M.I.A.

Ello, y’all. You know how it goes when you start a new job and it takes a while to get your routine going: that is kiind of the reason I went MIA on you pretty people. I was also lazy, whilst recklessly being an insatiable shopaholic. And learning how to perfect curling my hair: I…

Bookworm Challenge

Hey there!   So, every two weeks I hit the library for some good reads: I’m the biggest, geekiest, nerdiest bookworm out there. Guess that’s the writer in me. So anyways, for the past month or so, I’ve been trying to read some of the classics (if I can find them at the library, which…

All Jacked Up on a Skinny Peppermint Mocha

Guess what, ladies and fine gents?! You are looking at the Sony Centre’s newest Marketing Assistant — as of Monday November 12th. Eeeeeeee! I have been periodically squealing like a piglet for the past three hours. I have missed the working world so much this past month and I feel so blessed and lucky to…

I Came, I Saw, I Conquered

Bonjour! I have returned from L’Ottawa just a tad more French and much more fashionable. I came, I saw, I conquered the Rideau Centre in typical Paige-in-another-city fashion. If there’s a mall/outlet centre/fashion district, I will destroy it and take home the best finds that my bank account will allow. Let me begin with Forever21…

Post-Halloween Chocolate Hangover

Ugh, this is totally how I’m feeling today. I know Halloween was two days ago but I have consumed much more than the recommended serving of mini Mars bars…did anyone else know they were so good?! I’ve always been a Kit Kat girl so Mars was a lovely surprise. I’m  headed to Ottawa later today…
