My Health Journey

I have Crohn’s disease. I was diagnosed 14 years ago. I suffered for years with stomach pain that got increasingly worse year after year until figuring out what was wrong with me. It was a relief to finally get an explanation for the crippling stomach pains I suffered regardless of what I ate. I went through all sorts of tests thinking at first maybe it was some sort of allergy, lactose intolerance, celiac disease, Colitis and then finally an x-ray showed Crohn’s. I had no idea what that…

Christmas in Vancouver

I love this time of year for all the amazing activities around the city. Vancouver is a beautiful city any time of year, snuggled between the ocean and mountains and during the holidays, there are so many choices to help get you into that Christmas spirit. I love anything that involves lots of lights and decorations and feel like a kid again when I see elaborate displays of Christmas cheer! Every year I plan all the things I’m going to do and take Isabella to experience in the city. Sort of…

Top 10 Christmas movies

Christmas movies are one of the things I look forward to the most around the holidays. I have always loved the specials that come on during December to celebrate the season & my brother and I used to have our favorites that we’d watch for every year on CBC. His was Charlie Brown’s Christmas and mine was Mickey’s Christmas Carol. My mom’s favorite was The Grinch and I used to love when that one would come on the most because we would all watch together. We liked the horribly animated Rudolph…

Real or fake? That is the question

Real or fake? That is the question… Christmas has always been my favorite time of year. I love everything about it. Spending time with family, the decorations, the lights, the music…all of it! We always had a real tree growing up & come to think of it, I don’t recall anyone who had an artificial tree in their home. I remember it being a hassle to get the tree up and straight, my dad would put the lights on first and then my mom, brother and I would put up the decorations, Boney M’s Christmas…

See the Forest for the Trees

I’ve debated writing this post. It’s one I want to share but it’s hard to write personal stories in a way that feels appropriate. This one is all about one of my biggest inspirations, my dad. My dad was a forester, first and foremost. A true Pacific Northwest boy with a deep love of the forest that surrounds us. He grew up in a small town on northern Vancouver Island within the trees of my grandpa’s 40-acre property. Sustainable forestry was his passion. He spent his early days in and out of…

The Ugly Truth Behind the Beauty Counter

When you think of living a healthy lifestyle, what is it that you think of? If you’re like most people, its probably exercising and eating right. We don’t often think about changing what we use on our skin, our shampoo or other beauty products as part of living a healthier life. It’s crazy the things that we would never dream of ingesting but will put on our skin or use on our bodies daily. For whatever reason, changing our skincare routines and making more informed choices regarding our…

Why a blog is helpful to an online business

What is the purpose of a blog? I am just learning here but to me it’s a place where I can write about my journey, my thoughts, opinions and what lies behind the In a way it’s like my journal. I believe in the power of journaling but have never been able to consistently stick with it. It’s one of those things that I do when things aren’t going well, when I’m hurting or feeling lost but then as things straighten out again, journaling always falls to the wayside. Strange how this…

What the heck is a subscription box anyway?!

One of the most frequently asked questions I get since creating Discover is ‘what is a subscription box’? You would think I could answer this question easily but it always sort of stumps me for a minute. The simplest answer I give is usually “Discover is a recurring subscription to a health and wellness box featuring locally made products from the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland”. While this is the basic gist of what the box is, it doesn’t really sound all that interesting or exciting! I’ve…

Finding Courage to Dream the Dream

If you had told me a year ago that I’d be sitting here, alone on a Saturday evening, in my own townhouse (well technically not mine, I rent for now but that’s a story for another day) writing a blog post for a business that I created I would have laughed at you, hysterically. Never would I have imagined myself in the place I am right now, literally and figuratively speaking. I’m not going to get into the details of the past year but rest assured, it has been a serious game changer. So here I…

Halloween....the second best holiday of the year

What is your favorite holiday? I absolutely, hands down love Christmas! I just adore everything about it. In saying that, a close second is definitely Halloween! Autumn is my season, the changing colors on the trees, the cooler temperatures, rain and sweaters are totally my jam. Halloween has always been right up there with the favorites for one main reason though…the candy. Some people like dressing up the best, others like scary movies but me? I love the candy. Since I was a kid I have…
