The Only Makeup Products I’ve Used Working From Home for the Past 4.5 Years

As a remote employee, I’ve been working from home for 4.5 years, which is a long time. My WFH tricks have certainly fluctuated throughout the years, but one thing that’s remained constant is that I always put on makeup, and on the rare days that I don’t, I feel less awake. Yes, it’s in my head, but if something keeps me from being productive, regardless of whether or not it’s tangible, I’m not going to do it. I’d much rather just take the extra 10 minutes to put on some makeup in the morning

The thing is, I steer clear of heavy makeup and stick to only natural products that allow my skin to glow as opposed to masking it. And I don’t bother with a lot of gadgets and tools. Just using my fingers, for the most part, speeds up the task a lot...

Canyonlands National Park in 10 Photos

Last year I had the great opportunity to once again partner with Marriott International to highlight amazing parts of the country. One of those incredible trips was visiting Utah’s Mighty Five National Parks, which includes Canyonlands. While not as famous as some other nearby parks, it is no less impressive as I hope these photos demonstrate.

Top 10 things for someone with itchy feet to do during self-isolation

Coronavirus has affected all our lives in one way or another – and the world is a markedly different place from where it was when we saw in the new year. It is a hard time for many and the level at which humankind has unified is a heartening thing. We are in it together… but I say that knowing full well that this togetherness is going to follow a period of staying at home. That in itself is a challenging thing and so we are looking to fill our days with meaning.

Let me start by saying this is a necessary thing – we don’t travel today so we can travel tomorrow and you are doing a service to your community, friends, and the vulnerable among us by staying at home as much as possible. Normal is a state of mind – and this is our state of normalcy for the time being.

Midnight In Bangkok, Thailand

A few hours before midnight, we got picked up from our hotel in Bangkok for a chance to experience the city in a way we wouldn’t have otherwise.

Our day had started with one of the most popular spots in the city (the Grand Palace, Khlongs and Wat Arun – see it all here) but one of the best ways to truly enjoy a city is to go where the locals go which is perhaps why I enjoyed this evening bit so much.

See, this evening, we would be off on a food tour and to be perfectly honest, I’m typically a bit wary of food tours.

I’ve been on some really amazing ones but food tours can also be a bit “Meh!”...

Trans Canada Train Trips With VIA Rail

One of the things I’ve always wanted to do in my home country, is to take a VIA Rail Train Across Canada. I can’t think of a better way to see our home and native land, than taking the Train Across Canada. In late September of 2019, we made this dream become a reality.

We chose to start our planned rail journey departing from Halifax, traveling westbound to Vancouver.
