I have to say the biggest change this year and what's allowed me to do so many fun things and enjoy even the little things, has been my relationship with my boyfriend Scott. It's been such an amazing few months with him so far and it's so unbelievable how we clicked and found my other half. We've gone to more movies in the last couple months than I've been to in years, the drive in, glow in the dark mini putt, going to his family cottage and binge watching 9 seasons of Dr Who! We spend a LOT of time together which for some would seem OTT (over the top) but for us it's perfect. He's also my current driving instructor, getting me primed for some actual lessons so I can get my G2 sooner (don't judge the delay ahaha). We're both getting back into our fitness routines & currently starting the 28 Day PIIT Challenge. We're helping to push each other out of complacency which I am desperate for at the moment.
Another HUGE (and very exciting) change that has happened in the last month is the fact that I've been hired in a school full-time. At the moment I'm an assistant in a classroom with Junior Prep (age 3) and Junior Kindergarten (age 4) class until June but come September I'll have my own class and be working with grades 6-8! I'm so incredibly happy and lucky for this opportunity and look forward to what's to come in the Fall (not that I'm trying to rush through summer by any means). So that's the major reason I haven't been on the ball with blogging and with filming the last month, trying to get into the swing of things and unfortunately I haven't been sleeping well in recent weeks so I'm usually quite exhausted when I'm home from work. I'm vowing to myself and to you guys to try and keep myself going and blogging once or twice a week to keep bringing you fresh content. I'll be uploading once a week on Tuesdays to my YouTube channel, so if you aren't already subscribed to it, please go click that button right now!
Another fun tidbit to share with you guys is that I've been in a couple more runway shows for my friend Lesley (of Lesley Hampton Designs) with the biggest one being Fashion Art Toronto 2016. I'm also so stoked to share that she made her fashion week debut at Vancouver Fashion Week back in March and I couldn't be more proud. I was asked to join her out there to help behind the scenes but it overlapped with March Break Camp so I was unable to attend. FAT2016 more than made up for it and was an amazing show with more pieces of her new collection than weren't shown at VFW. I also got to have a hand in the design I got to wear down the runway which is always fun. I will have a tutorial for the runway makeup look up on my channel in the next couple of weeks and I'll have a post with photos and videos of the outfits I wore for her pre-runway fashion video as well as the runway itself. You can catch a preview of some of the photos on my Instagram which will also be less neglected in the coming weeks!
I hope 2016 has been treating you all well so far and my hopes is that it gets even better for everyone. I'm having the time of my life so far and it can only go up from here!
