There once was a girl who lived an ordinary life...
Then one day, everything changed.
I originally built this website back in 2006 to showcase my portfolio, when I was a wide-eyed aspiring makeup artist ready to take on Toronto's fashion scene. Over the years, this site has seen a number of designs, existed for different purposes, and been taken down and made live again. Needless to say, it's experienced quite an evolution over ten years, and really, so have I.
I've been a makeup artist, photo retoucher, web designer, SEO specialist, and even lead marketing for tech startups. I eventually reached a point where I was making good money, lived in a nice condo downtown Toronto, and had a "proper" wardrobe free of holes, but something was still missing and I always felt vaguely empty. Throughout this journey, I always heard this faint voice calling me away from it all...
I realize now that this intuitive whisper had the answers I needed, but I was denying myself the gift of honouring it. Now, I'm giving myself this gift, and choosing to listen. I've learned that life is always a choice. I'm not pleased with every choice I've ever made, but I can't imagine where else I'd be if not in this very moment. One way or another - whether we like it or not - we're always choosing. When we trust ourselves enough to follow the journey our heart wants us to go on, we're choosing to live, and by doing so we're ultimately choosing love.
I look forward to sharing my personal journey and my travels with you all. Please feel free to connect with me on social media. I'd love to meet you!
