Hello winter! Here in Whistler, we’ve already experienced a full week of snow on the boots, salt on the deck, and firewood crackling in the stove.
Sooooo December is 14 days away, which means I turn 30 in two weeks. Wild stuff! This felt so far away in my mid twenties, and now here we are. And it feels really good to be honest! I feel like my twenties were all about finding myself, learning to trust that inner knowing (which inspired the poster you can purchase above), and then developing the guts to truly see my shadows and the fortitude to reprogram. It’s a time. If you know, you know… I am also a month into a new role (Illustrator at McAfee) that I’m really excited about! After exiting the entertainment industry, it’s nice to find myself of value with a team that respects my process, my ideas and my independence. On that note, I’m seeking a full-time Illustrator to work alongside me, so if that sounds like something you’d like to chat about, email me. We’re also hiring a motion designer! Other than that, here’s some other notable life updates, links and likes that happened this month. §

⊳ We finally chose our cabinet colour and got house numbers (shown above)! The numbers are these Light Aluminum ones from CASSON. We installed them and they look amazing on our exterior. Check it out on my Instagram. As for the cabinet colour, we went with Vineland by Benjamin Moore.
⊳ We binged a new series on Amazon Prime’s Starz, Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult.. The four-part docuseries follows the story of India Oxenberg’s journey through the dark and criminal world of the notorious self-help-group-turned-sex-slave-cult NXIVM.
⊳ We also added a new movie to our top five: Knives Out. A fantastically funny and witty murder mystery starring Ana De Armas, Christopher Plummer, Toni Colette and Daniel Craig.
⊳ I picked up a few great books lately, and while I have yet to finish them all, I’m halfway through two. For this curious on my selections, they are Nature, Man and Woman by Alan Watts, The Conscious Creative: Practical Ethics for Purposeful Work by Kelly Small and Journey of Awakening: A Meditator’s Guidebook by Ram Das.
⊳ We got a Kitchenaid Mixer!!! My gosh we got a frickin’ Kitchenaid Mixer in Black Onyx from Crate and Barrel and it’s so divine. We have yet to use it, but when we do, you’ll know about it. I’m eyeing the food processor attachment right now…
