So I’ve apparently been majorly run down because I’ve caught not one but two sinus infections and am taking a sick day to rest up.
It’s been a minute since I’ve given a proper life update so I figured why not take a minute on Mental Health Day to let you know what I’ve been up to.
I’ve been very vocal about my own progress dealing with mental health, specifically depression and the changes I’ve made this year have impacted the positive results I’ve seen in the last few months. I made a commitment to myself this year and I’m happy to report that while it was a learning exercise and process, I think things are working out real well!
After starting this year traveling, being in LA for a brief period and building the Ya, We’re Basic. brand over the past six months, I’m happy to share that I’ve also landed a fun contract with a sports broadcast network here in Toronto.
It’s going to be amazing to work with this brand over the next year and combine my love of sports with my love of social media.
I feel so fortunate to have these opportunities and it’s nice to know that I’ll be in one place for a little while.
As much as I love to travel there is something to be said for having a home base, building a routine and just connecting with friends and family in my city.
I also find that’s when my best work happens so you’ll be seeing a lot of fun projects coming out shortly. STAY TUNED!
I’ve been dabbling with the idea of turning Ya, We’re Basic. into a full-fledged website where we can discuss all things celeb gossip and entertainment news. This is not a 100% idea but I do love the conversations we’ve been having via the ‘Gram and I’d love a space where we could get together to chat about these things on the reg. We will see…I love the possibility.
Finally, while I will be home, I do have a couple travels coming up in the next few months – I’ll be headed to New Orleans next month (I’ve never been and would love your recos!) and then Miami with my sissy for her birthday in December. Can’t wait to explore and discover new favorite spaces to share with you guys.
Lastly, given that I’ll be in the city for a while now, I’m officially on the hunt for a new home. Just a nice little neat apartment in the city for me and the monkey where we can get cozy, entertain and design a brand new space. I am really looking forward to decorating a new space but admittedly am being very picky on where I choose so stick with me as I explore what Toronto has to offer.
OK fun, I believe that is everything – did I miss anything? Well, holiday season is actually around the corner which means we’ll have gift guides and giveaways coming up SO SOON!
Honestly life is just really fun right now and even though I’m couch-bound, with the worst cough I’ve had in years, I’m just really grateful and happy to see a lot of hard work of this past year finally start to come to fruition.
Let me know if you have any questions or want any updates that I might’ve missed x!
