Out Of The Dark

I’ve been afraid to sleep because when the lights are out and my buds are out I feel alone, like I’m drowning. We shot in the dark to illustrate that by coming out of the darkness. My hearing loss presented a major life struggle (and plenty of life lessons) for me. Sometimes, it was absolutely terrifying. In short, the … Continue Reading

The New Season

Hearing aid technology has come a long way in recent years. Recent advances allow for a whole new connectivity and sleek new designs. “There’s nothing historically sexy about a shiny new hearing aid; it’s not exactly the hottest accessory of choice.” But – like our cell phones and gadgets – I discovered that, when it comes to today’s hearing aids, big … Continue Reading

Connected By Cable

Let’s be honest; the way you’re dressed is usually the first thing people notice about you: your outfit can immediately convey almost as many things about you as your social media profile of choice can.

Style You Can Fly

Though it is evolved throughout the years, my style has always remained unique and distinct to me. In 2014, I was even honoured with the title of one of Toronto Life’s Most Stylish (something I still proudly often exercise bragging rights for). Of course, sneakers are my passion.

Coat It Up

Coat it Up! I’ve always liked peacoats, but only when others wore them. I personally did not like wearing them because I’m not a fan of the way the coat covers my neckline. However, that was before I set my eyes on this beautiful vintage peacoat, which is when I realized that it is an … Continue Reading
