Dear Social Media, I’m sorry I suck at you.

Last week I scientifically explained why I would start posting other people’s content besides my own. And I didn’t mean post other people’s work on the blog, I meant across the rest of the social networking landscape. But now, I feel like I need to explain myself MUCH FURTHER about why that is actually a… Read more »


Lately I’ve been trying to understand the internet, specifically content CREATORS and content CURATORS. People that make things for the world wide web versus people that conveniently put all the best things in one place for me to enjoy. And that all kind of seems like it it should be a smooth-sailing-system, but it doesn’t… Read more »

ITALY Advice?

In exactly 29 days, my man and I are fulfilling a life long dream and heading to Italy for the ENTIRE MONTH OF MAY. One may call it a honeymoon, but I’m calling it SPRING BREAK FOR MARRIED PEOPLE. And I’m not writing this to rub it in, I’m actually hoping to solicit recommendations and/or… Read more »

The Most Beautiful Thing In All The World

My husband, Chris Kelly, is too amazing for words. He made this tiny film, Home Sweet Home, about our recent adventures in Joshua Tree and Palm Springs. Oh and we do not really own that airstream trailer, but you never know…

Personal Board of Advisers

This week I had coffee with the incredibly lovely and infectious Arpen Thandi, and in the middle of a particularly awesome, riled-up conversation she casually mentioned something about her “personal board of advisers“. I then followed it up with a “wait whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat!? Do you have a board of advisers for your LIFE?”. Which she then… Read more »

Elliot The Poet

My nephew Elliot is truly insane and brilliant, which I’m pretty sure makes him the perfect artist. In this video he is 4 years old, but now he is the ripe old age of 5. I made this short film in his honour when I was first teaching myself how to edit videos and because… Read more »

Property Virgins.

“HOT Main Street area starter home” was the first line of the property posting my man and I read on a lazy, hungover Sunday, so I knew we were already fucked. Every 25-40 year old in Vancouver is looking for a HOT starter home that is not a condo but also under $800,000! And this… Read more »

iPhone cases are the new tattoos.

This week I said goodbye to my iphone 3GS where the the apps ceased to work anymore, and said hello to an iphone 5. As exciting as the thinner, basically-the-same phone is (except the incredible new camera which is basically why I bought it), the real excitement now lies in choosing a CASE. I know… Read more »

How to find a job and become an adult (and our inability to do so).

Once again Grown-Up Party’s resident woman-of-awesomenesss, Lizzy Karp, has passed on a series of articles that struck a chord deep in my belly. Rob Carrick from the Globe and Mail dives into the important issues facing people in their 20s and 30s. Basically: the trials and tribulations of finding a job and “becoming an adult”…. Read more »

That’s My Jam (of the week)!

Monday night I saw the totally bodacious Darwin Deez in Vancouver (I can use those kind of words here because in between songs Darwin Deez broke into choreographed 90s dances with his band – it was truly radical). And now I can’t stop listening to this song, and singing (well actually screaming) WAS THERE A … Read more »
