I’m passionate about…beauty


Hello everyone! Today I wanted to take a little break from that whole world of hockey (slash – the world of post-hockey trauma) and talk about something that I re-realised  last weekend.

The Spirit of the City (and my first couple of weeks at RFTP!)

The first couple of weeks at RFTP have gone by with a blast! The office is pretty awesome, even with the hard to reach windows ahaha. They do, however, provide sounds of the hustle and bustle of downtown Vancouver. It’s really interesting actually, if you listen carefully, even if it’s mostly traffic noises. Being a […]
