I love the ocean. Unfortunately, I do not have a very science-y brain so Marine Biology was not the route for me. So instead, I made it my #1 bucket list item to become a diver!
I was so fortunate to finally achieve my childhood dream last summer (getting my diving certification) in the very chilly waters of Newfoundland (shoutout to Ocean Quest Adventures)!
Inspired by VivaTech’s session last week, I decided to compile a list of some super cool startups building solutions to save our oceans. I won’t be the brains behind saving the ocean, but I can sure…
From influencing Trump rally attendance with K-pop fans to changing the marketing game à la @innocentdrinks, Gen Z has been disrupting the norm via TikTok. Underneath all the new terminology and crying in front of the camera is a huge market made up of informed and internet-savvy people. The growth of Tiktok combined with the increased power of this new generation is leading to some cool applications being developed. Here are some ones that I am keeping my eyes on…
Maybe it’s the years of trying to save money by not using Spotify premium and now I feel like I am living my BEST life or maybe it’s just because covid has stopped all live music but regardless of the reason, I love Spotify. Like a lot. I love it so much that I decided to write an article on it — enjoy?
PS if you are an Apple Music person or someone who doesn’t organize their Spotify playlists then no need to keep reading.
I have never been fashionable. From wearing the iconic “RAWR means I love you in dinosaur shirt” to dressing like a wealthy suburban mother as a teenager, I have struggled to define my personal style.
Luckily, this all changed when I lived out of a backpack for the majority of one year. I have found my style.
Meet the three-piece combo aka wannabe Steve Jobs wardrobe: turtleneck + jeans + sneakers.
It really can’t get more basic than this. Most days of the week you can find me wearing some variation of this outfit. That being said, I have different…
I spend a lot of time on the internet (mainly Twitter). And I just don’t know where to share these media/marketing/trending things anymore (the ones that aren’t work-related, those are here). Am I just becoming a one-person Buzzfeed?
Cappuccino.fm is my new favourite thing on my phone. Maybe it’s just because I have being a podcast guest/host on my bucket list but this has become the highlight of my day. It’s become a competition on who can tell their mundane life in quarantine update in the most chaotic way. I have 3 friends on it, quality over quantity.
This is my rundown on all the marketing things I discovered on the internet this past week.
“Women belong in the kitchen.”

“The final two tweets in that thread are all well and good, but Burger King UK lost everyone with their delivery. The chain used a harmful, sexist stereotype to try to grab people’s attention, then thought they could make everything fine by later revealing a “gotcha!”
We all know one of them. Those morning people. The seemingly never-ending LinkedIn influencers posting about their 4 am start workday. The super early morning runners (who are somehow ALWAYS smiling). The YouTubers with their cute background music making their heart-shaped lattes.
Let’s make this VERY clear.
I have never been one of them nor have I ever wanted to (see screenshot conversation on left). But as of March 2021, I am a morning person… and I am slowly learning to love it.
Let’s just say, it wasn’t planned… I live in one province, go to grad school in another…
