No Rain, No Rainbows

1:1 with the Founders of The Fitzroy

1:1 with the Founders of The Fitzroy

I've long been a fan of Julie Buczkowski and Angela Pastor, founders of The Fitzroy (Dress Rental Magic). Through their rental service, they bring an amazing assortment of designer dresses to women all across Toronto. Six months after my daughter was born I had a wedding to go to and decided to rent a gorgeous dress I never would have bought for myself. I hadn't felt that good in a long time. (It really is rental dress magic!)

When not wearing gorgeous designer clothes, they love kicking back in, you guessed it, our signature robe! We caught up with both founders on what lights them up, their daily rituals and how they face fears while going after their dreams.

How to Get Unstuck

How to Get Unstuck

This week I spoke to my friend Leith McKay, host of a podcast called Finding Me about how to navigate through the feeling of being "stuck". What does the word "stuck" mean to you? I found two definitions that made sense to me: 

Stuck: unable to move, or set in a particular position, place or way of thinking 

and,

Stuck: in a difficult situation, or unable to change or get away from a situation

 I have experienced both definitions of stuck and I can honestly say feeling stuck sucks.

Keep Your Heart Open

Keep Your Heart Open

Never, ever close your heart. I read this phrase in The Untethered Soul, one my favourite spiritual books, in the months after my husband passed away. I was grieving deeply for him and for me. I was feeling sorry for myself and was scared for my future. But somehow these words, “Never close your heart” were confirmation of something I already felt deep down. It was almost as if I could have written them myself. Because despite all the pity I was receiving from others, I knew those weren’t the thoughts I should embrace or absorb. What I wanted to and needed to believe was that nothing was worth closing my heart over. Even my own sad story.
