The first blog post is often the most difficult. Simply because of the pressure of it being “the FIRST post"…
So instead I would like to take this opportunity to just say “Hi!" and “Welcome to my blog!".
I have a lot in store for you, should you choose to follow along!
A bit about myself…
I am a Generation Y-er living in the core of downtown Toronto; feeding off the energy and hustle n’ bustle going on outside my condo window. I often spend my time drinking in and soaking up the abundance of unique sites, sounds and smells this metropolis has to offer. And I absolutely adore admiring our beautiful city from the comfort of my balcony, coffee in hand. I close my eyes and press my ear to the whistle of the wind; hearing the medley of construction around the corner, mixed with foreign languages being spoken by passersby, the swish of planes over head and the BEEP BEEP! TOOT TOOT! of traffic *SIGH*. I LOVE THIS CITY! Always have... Always will!
You see… I am not originally from Toronto, but the magnetic pull of this city started for me when I was only in elementary school. And it was a major driving force for me to excel through my secondary education, in order to escape my small hometown and live my life in the BIG city. I never felt like I belonged in that small town - I never fit in, I never bought in to the whole “this is all life has to offer" mentality and I didn’t want to settle down with my high school sweetheart (no offence meant to anyone, it was just not for me). Over the years I have lived all over the GTA. I have even moved away and moved back. But no matter where I go, I honestly cannot replicate the longing and belonging feeling this city provides for me. It will forever be my “Home Sweet Home" as I’m sure many of you feel similarly!
I have worked in a variety of industries - Fashion, Luxury, Public Relations, Marketing, Advertising, Magazines and Loyalty. So combining all of my experience and connections in one place for my fellow YYZ Millennials just seemed like the right thing to do!
This blog will highlight and feature the following in no particular order…
- Fashion (His & Hers)
- Beauty & Grooming
- Tech Toys
- Travel & Leisure
- Gastronomy & Recipes
My features will be collaborative and informative, they will be on trend and off, they will be mainstream and mainstream-alternate…
BUT most importantly... they will be entirely for the 25+ young working professional that aspires to HAVE and to BE…
“THE BEST" in all things YYZ!
Until next time… Enjoy!
