Conquering the Sea to Summit Hike in Squamish, BC

Things I’m Loving
Here are 9 things under (or just over) $10 I’m loving right now. 1. Oprah Chai Tea I stopped putting sweetener and dairy in my coffee last month, AKA I started drinking black coffee. This was a major challenge. While I still drink a cup of coffee once in a while, one of my new ...

The End of My Love Affair With Coffee

Guided Meditation and the Calm App
I love to meditate, and have spent a majority of my time on the floor practising transcendental meditation, or “T.M.” for short.  For a beginners guide and to see how I got started meditating, check out this post. While I still enjoy T.M., I figured it might be time for me to give another form ...

Shows Like Departures Are Why I Love Netflix
I love Netflix for all of the regular reasons. I won’t bore you with why it’s great. However, there is one thing in particular I really love about the service – it allows me to discover shows that may not have received their deserved accolades due to airing on small networks.
