    Oh My Thoughts: Online Dating

    Imagine this. It's Wednesday. You're enjoying your day. And then you hear it. The ding of one of your dating apps. And you're like - awesome! Someone messaged me back or messaged me first. Basically, you're excited because online dating isn't easy, and so progress is progress, right? Wrong.

    Oh My Thoughts: Body Positivity

    Throughout my years, I've always struggled with my weight. I've fluctuated in my sizing so much since my teens. My confidence would fluctuate along with my weight. Some days I'd feel super confident in an outfit I was wearing, and the next year I could be wearing the same outfit or a similar one and want to add a cardigan, or a sweater, something to hide the body parts I was suddenly so self conscious about. My arms. My stomach. My thighs. It changed depending on the day. Depending on the outfit.

    Oh My Thoughts – Mental Health in the Workplace

    I've written and re-written this post a bunch of times. Sometimes I sit here and I wonder, what can I say here? I know that this is my blog, and I can say what I want to. But sometimes I worry that certain people, if they come across a post, will get the wrong idea. The wrong opinion. And not that anyone's opinion but my own should matter, but there are relationships I've built over the years that I don't want to speak ill of. And I think some of the words I typed could've been misconstrued, and my message would have been lost.

    Oh My Quotes – 10 Quotes I’ve Loved Over The Years

    Quotes, whether they be just words someone has spoken aloud, or from a book, or a movie - they seem to scratch their way into my soul. It sounds cheesy, and a bit sappy, but it's the truth. I am obsessed with the words others have spoken as I try and find my own voice. This blog has been a great outlet, but I'm still working on it.

    Oh My Unemployment: The Highs, The Lows, and The In-between

    The day they told me that they weren’t renewing my contract, my heart was broken. I’m not going to lie – I bawled. The first person I called was my sister, and between sobs I tried to tell her what was going on. The amount of emotions running through me were insane. I had a feeling it was coming, because I’m not an idiot, and I expected one major emotion: anger. But anger didn’t hit right away. I was hurt. That’s the only word I can use to describe how I felt. Hurt. I had just spent over six years of my life giving everything I had into my job.…

    A Year In Reflection: 2018, I Love You

    As one year comes to an end, it's always a time for reflection. This is the time of year where you start seeing New Years resolutions come out (I think I read a statistic about gym membership sales skyrocketing every January) - most of them are usually around the same thing. Health, lifestyle, diet - everything in that generic box. I usually make the same sort of resolution. And I rock it for a month or so, and then I move on to something else, or reverse back out of it. This year, my resolution is to not make resolutions. This year has been one for the books, and I'm…

    Top 5 Winter Date Ideas in the GTA!

    It’s that time of year again… winter dating! I prefer winter dating. I’m more of a fan of the cold as opposed to the heat. I’m just not a huge fan of sweating unless I’m at the gym. With the snow beginning to fall, and all the winter markets about to take place, it’s time for a run down of some of the best date ideas for the winter season. Here are my Top 5 Winter Date Ideas in the GTA! 1. Tree Lighting Celebrations There are two tree lighting celebrations in the GTA that I’ve attended and I absolutely adore them. Firstly, the Cavalcade of Lights in Toronto. This…

    2018 Bucket List

    I created a Bucket List a couple of years ago with a girlfriend of mine, but let’s be real – we didn’t really follow through with it. This year, however, I have decided to make it a goal of mine to complete at least 75% of the items on this list. I’ll post it here to start, but then I will have a link to it from the header where I’ll update it as I go through and complete items on the list, or I will go and add new items to the list as the time goes on. I seem to always stumble across things on Facebook, usually through…

    So Fresh and So Clean!

    WELCOME TO THE NEW (& IMPROVED) OH MY SAMCAKE! I am coming at your from my brand new domain, ohmysamcake.com. I wanted to do something that would really solidify who I am, and what I want to produce for you. Having the “.wordpress.com” on my name wasn’t the worst thing in the world, but I really love the way it looks without it. Don’t you agree? As stated in my “Ch-ch-changes” post, I have been working with a really great graphic designer named Lindsay to help put something together to represent the vibe I want to give off. A couple of back-and-forths between us, and suddenly, there it was. That was…

    Ch-ch-changes.

    I've been doing a lot of behind the scenes work that you just can't see. Yet. I'm giving this place a face lift. I know I haven't been around quite that long, but I want this place to feel more homey. I want to really feel like this is a place for me to express myself and that all if you feel like you're welcome and that there is a bit of something for you here too.
