I’ve become one of those people. The kind that hates Mondays and loves Fridays. I used to love all the days. Well I actually still do but Its Friday’s that puts a spring in my step and a song in my heart. If truth be told it’s actually Saturday thats my one true love!
If you’re in the Durham area, Healthy Comforts is coming to you! Visit us on Saturday, April 6th at Chapters Ajax from 11-4. We will be selling and signing our cookbook. Would love to meet you!

Chance came to me with
this dream many years

difference in the world by
offering a place people
could come and have time
to heal from things in their
life that knocked their legs
“You are bored. And I'm going to let you in on a little secret about life. You think it's boring now? Well, it only gets more boring. The sooner you learn it's on you to make life interesting, the better off you'll be.” - Maria Semple, Where'd You Go, Bernadette
Life of Pi has been around for a very long time so perhaps a synopsis isn’t necessary but in a nutshell, it tells the story of young Pi Patel, who set out on a voyage across the sea with his family and several animals being transported to zoos in North America. Unfortunately, the ship sinks during the journey, and Pi is stranded in a lifeboat with an orangutan, a hyena, a zebra and a full grown tiger. ✨
I found this book in a secondhand bookstore the other day and I remembered how much I enjoyed it. It’s quite layered and heavy with symbolism, but at the same time, very light and magical with a good dash of philosophy. I’ve read other reviews that hated the ending of the book but that was what really cinched it for me. It’s been a long time since I’ve read it though, and I think I will re-read it again soon to see if I enjoy it as much and in the same way as before. ✨
Have you read it? If so, let me know! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5

A review of ‘Hold Still’ is coming shortly but first I just had to photograph these books together. Both of these book covers are absolutely beautiful and what’s even better is the content inside of them! Have you read either of these books by @nina_lacour? I’d love to know your thoughts! 💕☕️📖
You guys know when it comes to my clothing, I am an All Black Everything type of gal but the minute I feel that Spring air, I love throwing pops of color in the mix. I recently made a trip to Indigo Short Hills and picked up the cutest accessories that will make the transition into Spring attire, effortless. This Love and Lore Heather Tote in Blush and Watercolour Grey Silky Scarf are so versatile and perfect statement pieces. I also picked up this super cute cosmetic pouch which is perfect for throwing in my tote when on the go. Make your way on over to Indigo Short Hills to checkout the latest Fashion additions for the Spring season. #AD@ChaptersIndigO#IndigoShortHills

herself ‘we are the lucky

all the different impacts
she will have on the people
who stay and work at
I moved to Toronto from Calgary when I was 18 and forced my bestie @DamionWalters to follow along. We both worked in retail so going home for the holidays was never an option so, naturally, we created our own holiday traditions. We get together every year for cocktails and a gift exchange and we always try to find something that will put a smile on each other’s faces. This year I’ve teamed up with @ChaptersIndigo to share my favourite gift picks for the holidays (including these coasters, coffee table book and tumbler glasses that I picked out for Damo). What’s on your wishlist for the holidays but more importantly, what are you getting for everyone else?! Head to my stories to see my favourite Holiday gifting items. #EveryGiftTellsAStory (ad) 📷 by @jessbaumung

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 - Yes, yes and YES🙌🏼 This one totally lived up to the hype! It’s a autobiography that reads as easily as a novel! It’s refreshing and compelling - I hung on to every word until the very last page! Michelle Obama is one classy and inspiring woman!💃🏼
In Becoming, Michelle reflects on her life in a way I found incredibly motivating - I swear if this book doesn’t make you question and evaluate your life for the better, you’re reading it wrong😉
If you’re someone who typically says “biographies aren’t for me”, trust me, I get it!🙋🏼♀️ Nonfiction, especially biographies, can be dry reads - for me, it isn’t about who you are but how well you tell your story and Michelle Obama did not disappoint 👏🏼
You know that anticipation, and nervous feeling you get while waiting for a rollercoaster you’re riding to get to the top? And once it reaches to the top and begins going down, the butterflies in your stomach take over your mind and body?
YEAH WELL, THATS HOW I FEEL ABOUT THIS BOOK!!!! In a good way.
This book was an amazing reminder of why I love the thriller/mystery genre. It was suspenseful, scary, edge of your seat/grab some popcorn type of read and I loved every minute of it. Bravo @taylor.adams.author, you’ve reignited my love for thriller reads again!
⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5 - This was just what I needed to get out of my reading slump - I completely devoured A Ladder to the Sky👏🏼
Maurice Swift is an aspiring author - he can certainly write, but lacks creativity for his stories. Desperate to become the next great novelist, he goes to great lengths to find stories, wreaking havoc along the way🌪 He’s selfish and evil but totally fascinating. .
Psychological dramas are a bit tricky for me but this was such an enthralling read👏🏼 It was smart, personal and a little dark. I loved the different characters - they all felt so real to me - but I especially loved how Maurice develops and changes from different points of view. What particularly stuck with me is the way that Boyne seems to effortlessly describe feelings and emotions that I’ve always struggled to put into words👏🏼
