I REALLY Suck At Blogging: An Epic

I knoooooooow it’s been a while. To be honest, life has been cray. Reasons why I haven’t been blogging: Got a new job at Target Canada (aw ya) which I absolutely love. I’ve become one of those people who enjoys going to work and talking about it after work. (Now to just work around that…

Hey Guys, Learn Your MANners

So it’s 10 days into 2014 and I’m already feeling the need for another Festivus so I can air my grievances. (That’s a good sign for the year to come, right?!) Anyways. Remember when I expressed my feelings (vented, ranted, bitched…whatever) about dating as a fitness competitor? Via some R&D (Research and Development, to my…

On Love & Loss: IDFA World Championships 2013

This past weekend, I competed in my second competition of this triple competition blitz I am going through right now: the IDFA World Championships & Pro Universe. Since I had placed top 5 at my very first competition – IDFA Novice Classic, four score and 100 years ago –  I was qualified to compete in…

Feel Good Friday

Despite my week of unobliterated happiness, I felt I needed a little motivational pick-me-up today (and I know some people out there who need one too.) I do not wish women to have power over men; but over themselves. Mary Wollstonecraft All the reasonings of men are not worth one sentiment of women. Voltaire Be intentional about…

For Women Who Are Difficult To Love

How far have you walked for men who’ve never held your feet in their laps? How often have you bartered with bone, only to sell yourself short? Why do you find the unavailable so alluring? Where did it begin? What went wrong? And who made you feel so worthless? If they wanted you, wouldn’t they…

The Thing About Dreamers…

….is that they love to dream BIG. A tiny grain of idea ignites like a dry leaf in a summer forest…WHOOSH! And just like that, a small fiery leaf of an idea turns into a full-fledged, blazing forest fire in a matter of minutes. I was talking with my friend Susan about our relationship mishaps…

I Am Shoshanna

  I am, I really really am. Since she first graced my little laptop screen, Shoshanna Shapiro was my favourite Girl on HBO’s to-be-cult show Girls. Everyone on the show is my favourite – except Hannah, ugh — but Shoshanna is just the perfect embodiment of all the inner workings that don’t always show. (*WARNING:…

Love is Love is Love

  I found this quote on Tumblr, copied from Ryan O’Connell’s Thought Catalog post about the “20 People You’ll Fall in Love With in Your 20s” and it was bang-on, totally and utterly true.   You will fall in love with someone who annoys you, whose orgasm face looks and feels pathetic. Despite all of…

Butter, Sugar & Chocolate…Oh My!

Pre-holiday Winter: that period between Remembrance Day (or the beginning of December if you’re a tight-butt no-fun person), that is filled with Christmas music in department stores, mass amounts of chocolate and other holiday treats, and the biggest VISA bill your bank account will hate you for. Every year, I meet up with my old…

The Smorgasbord: Cars, Tattoos, Christmas, and Deadlifts

I guess it’s official: I’m hooked on blogging. I feel a severe sense of separation anxiety if I’m not posting daily…perfect. Big shout out to my cyber homie DoomzTO for helping me make my blog look prettier and easy for you babes to use/find my fabulous words of wisdom and ramblings. (See my new headings!?…

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…

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…
