I am trying something new today on the podcast.
I am sharing my first episode in what I am going to call my "mini disruptions" (I may change this, haha!) I will use them to dive in deeper on a certain topic, thought or idea that has been percolating in my brain. So, here goes the first one on the idea that "your appearance is not the currency of your worth".
In a society that values beauty, youth and thinness. There’s really only a few who get to benefit from it. And even if you do, it’s still fleeting. So we get stuck in a never ending pursuit of chasing flawless skin, a thinner body or hiding the natural aging process by any means necessary. Even if it makes you miserable and unhappy.
You think that it’s the price of admission to acceptance, validation or self-worth.
So many base their self worth on:
Are you starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel yet where you live?
Does life seem to be returning to a new normal yet?
Maybe you are heading back to an office or are starting to leave the house more frequently. This means that if you have been living in your loungewear for the past year, you might want to start branching out again.
This might mean that you will be looking at the clothes hanging in your closet for the past year.
It might mean that it's getting warmer where you live and have to try on last years shorts or swimsuits.
If you're like the most of us, your body might have changed while it was surviving a pandemic. And yes, your body might have needed to change while it was keeping you alive and managing stress the past year.
This can be frustrating and triggering for some. Let's get real...for many.
It's frustrating when your clothes no longer fit!
For many, trying on clothes...
In this episode, I bring on my best friend and past podcast guest (S1 Ep:3) who is also named Amanda back onto the podcast to drink some gin with me and to me 20 personal questions!
I did not know the questions ahead of time.
Before we dive into the questions, my guest Amanda and I do a deep dive into her new found joy in Tiktok and how she found a community of people (the "new coming out" lesbians community) that she can relate to. It's helped her to learn more about the community and herself as a late coming out lesbian.
Then we dive into the 20 questions.
I share what I've learned about being a wife, my biggest fears, my biggest...
In today's episode, I'm introducing a new series that you will be see throughout Season 2 where I share inspirational women and their lessons in life.
So, to kick off this series, I bring on a friend Cassandra Blackmore, who is running for City Council in Fredericton, NB. However, I first met her when she wanted to start her own Wardrobe Consulting business.
Cassandra worked in wardrobe consulting for awhile, but followed her passion to become the Executive Director of Fredricton's Community Kitchens (making and giving food...

She is a certified sexuality coach and sex educator who specializes in working with mothers who want to step back into their sexy and find their dormant libido after kids. She is a mother, step mother, life-long entrepreneur, feminist, and a firm believer in the power of reclaiming our sexuality to create a ripple effect across our life.

In today's episode, I'm sharing:
1. They connects us to how we want to feel.
How do you want to feel for the day?
Want to embody a bad ass boss vibe? Want to feel more low key and comforting? Want to express your rebellious bold self? Want to feel more adventurous and fun today? Look at your closet and identify certain outfits or pieces that help you connect to how you want to feel for the day.
We are so inherently tied to our feelings and our clothes can help us connect to them on a deeper level.
2. The colours we wear can affect our mood.
When I wear red, it totally shifts my mood. If I am feeling bold, I wear red. When I want to feel sexy, I wear black lace. When I wear white, I feel light and bright. When I wear pink, I feel feminine. Studies have proven that colour affects our mood, so give you mood an extra boost and wear a colour that can affect you in a positive way.
I can feel JOY when I catch a glimpse of the colours I'm wearing throughout the day.
3. It's a nonverbal communication...
