Confessions of a #Hashtag Addict #ILuvMeSomeHashtags


Before I get to confessing, there may be some of you who do not know what a hashtag is yet or would like a formal definition. Per the Oxford Dictionary, a #hashtag is: A word or phrase preceded by a hash sign (#), used on social media sites such as Twitter to identify messages on a specific topic: I recently had someone make a comment to me about my use or perhaps their perception of my overuse of #hashtags. It went a little something like this: "Hey, aren't you PegCityLovely?" "Why, yes, Continue Reading...

A Year Ago Today My Life Changed Forever


It's still so surreal. It feels like just yesterday that my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was so quick, so aggressive, so painful, so hard to watch. I have never experienced anything like it, and I hope to never have to again. Every single day I flashback to those few weeks in the hospital where I watched the most important woman in my life fade away. She was so strong through it all.  After she saw and spoke with her grandbabies, it was clear she just let go. I distinctly remember Continue Reading...

Why I’d Like To #CaptureCalgary Next Time I #Travel


Growing up in Western Canada has so many benefits.  The variety of terrain and diverse people across the provinces can make for an awesome adventure . There are quite a few cities in Western Canada that I have yet to explore and one of those cities is Calgary, Alberta. I've only been to Calgary a few times and it was always work-related so I've never gotten a chance to truly experience everything the city has to offer. To tell you the truth, I even have family and friends in Calgary! Yup! Continue Reading...

Club Regent Is More Than Just A Casino #Winnipeg #ExploreMB


I grew up in a lil suburb in Winnipeg called Transcona. Home of the pink flamingo! I remember when Regent Ave, the main strip, was a 4 lane dirt road and there was a drive-in theatre, but I also remember when Transcona hit the big time and was the chosen location for the Club Regent Casino. Club Regent was so snazzy when it was first built, very colourful and modern for its time. When you first walked in you felt as if you were in another world! I remember many of my friends worked at the Continue Reading...
