I Used to Be an Internalized Misogynist and So Can You!

By | July 10th, 2017|A Different Point of View, Lifestyle|

As we all probably know (unless you haven’t paid attention to politics in this past year), misogyny is the dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women. It’s a pervasive ideology that is still widespread in our culture, even though women achieved voting rights long ago. Misogynists exist in every circle, every industry, every [...]

A Black Rose – A Guest Blog Post with a Different View

By | June 20th, 2017|A Different Point of View, Lifestyle|

When I was younger, my prize possession was a single snow globe. It was small enough to fit inside my palm, but encased in the glass was my greatest treasure; a magical city. The globe lived beside my bed, and each night I would pray to the god above that when I pried my eyes [...]

I climbed out of the car, stepped on the soft grass, felt the heat of the day in the air as it touched my skin, and suddenly the most incredible feeling of calm and peace settled over me. This was my immediate impression upon arrival of Swami’s Yoga Retreat (website). It didn’t leave me for [...]

By | June 5th, 2017|Activities, Europe, Fashion, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

One day at work I opened my emails, and there was a beaming one (maybe it was just beaming in my memory). It was from WestJet, offering a new route to London, England. There was also an amazing introductory sale price that worked out to be about $700.00 return after everything was calculated, for the [...]

My Favourite Romance Authors With Humour & Strong Females

By | May 16th, 2017|Books/Authors, Lifestyle|

Being single means you have to either be a strategist and/or read minds. I play the ‘Easy as Pie’ level of Sudoku on my iPhone. So you know, I haven’t found someone permanent yet. I love men. I love the way they sometimes look. The way some of them walk. The way some of them [...]

Melbourne – Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate, a few things, and oh yah, Transportation

By | March 18th, 2017|Australia, Food, Lifestyle, Travel|

The one thing that stood out for me walking around Melbourne is the fact that there is so much chocolate. So very much chocolate. I’m not normally a big chocolate fan but even I fell into the rabbit hole [...]
