I’ve started a new blog

Blogging / Life

I’ve started a new blog. About beauty. It’s called Lipstick is my Co-Pilot. I have my friend Laura Friesen to thank for inspiration. It wasn’t meant to be super serious but I’ve already published seven posts and have another nine in drafts. Apparently I have lots of opinions on this stuff. Who knew? I’ve been blogging less and less here. My passion for online marketing and website design remains but I don’t feel as compelled to write about it […]

A tour of the British Isles in accents

I’m from the suburbs. When […]

Which is why I’m posting it here for you to see. Noah, by writer/directors Walter Woodman and Patrick Cederberg, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this month. Yes, it’s a long short film. And I’m famously impatient when it comes to short films […]

Me today and me aged 11


Don’t ask what on earth inspired me to do this but here it is. Me aged 11 and me today. Last Sunday local photographer Ian McCausland came to NSI’s office (my workplace) to take photos of our current students. Staff were offered the chance to update their mugshot and since mine was three years old I figured I’d better get a new one. Ian always does a fab job so I’m pretty pleased with the […]
