Self-love takes practice

A week ago, I posted my video "10 ways I practice self-love" on YouTube. The footage was taken last year. As a huge self-love advocate, I feel like I, myself, really need some of these reminders I spoke about in the video right now. Why did I post the video a year later? I was too busy attacking how poorly shot the footage was, how my eyeliner was off, and how I was talking while eating my hair thanks to the wind. And why the huge hiatus from blogging?

I thought Toronto was going to be boring…

I actually wouldn't mind relocating to Toronto. It's a great city- a friendlier, cleaner version of New York City. I've always wanted to do videos like this, so I decided to give it a try.

Also, when you don't go for that long, you have trouble convincing yourself that

How’s your commute?

After reading an old blog post I wrote--a little story about my commute one day after work and experiencing this past Tuesday's commute (over two hours to get home), I feel inspired to write this post, especially since the amount of complaining I have been doing related to my commute has been aplenty. Your commute also happens to be one of the first questions you get when you start a new job: "How's your commute? Is it better than the old job?" It really is a way for the person asking the question to benchmark how great or awful to
