Be kind to all dogs and people of every colour

Yesterday was difficult but I had some self-care time and am mentally in a better place. I feel stronger than I was yesterday.

I am safe in Canada right now but already, there are people who want to echo what happened yesterday in America. I won’t let it. It’s hard to live the life of an influencer without wanting to use my voice to influence others. If I can inspire one person to show more compassion to those that are different, to listen to others without privilege than being a blogger was worth it.

I do not want to sit around and be idle any longer. If you want to help but don’t know how, here are a list of charities that need your help.

I’ll continue to blog about food and my life but I want to be braver and talk about the issues that matter the most to me too.

#ImagineOct20th

We’re less than a week away from voting. How great would it be if we woke up on October 20th and Harper was no longer in power?
Don’t forget to vote on the 19th! I already did with advanced voting over the weekend. If everyone votes we can really have a better country on October 20th. Vote with your heart, not strategically. If everyone turns up to vote for who they believe in, I truly believe that Harper wouldn’t be in power.
