this is me.

I’m a Canadian gal currently residing in Ottawa, Ontario.
I’ve always been a “jack of all trades” type so my website and blog is just that… a combination of all the pots my hands are in! My main vibe is trotting the globe or finding the next local adventure to go on! I do all my adventures with my best friend & hubby, Bryan – he’s kind of my favourite thing about my life! We also get to do life with some amazing family and friends {who I call our cheerleaders}… and you’ll hear me talk about them quite a bit too!

I am a Wellness Advocate with doTERRA Essential Oils and I love spreading the oily & wellness love! You’ll see my DIY recipes and other fun things you can do with essential oils!

My other fave things are workouts, good books & some good tunes. I have a crazy obsession for great food, strong espresso and furry four-legged friends! I love organization, and believe whole-heartedly in BIG dreams.

Thanks for visiting my site… don’t be shy – I look forward to connecting with you!

I wish every time I “liked” an outfit on Instagram it would magically appear in my closet.
