Own Your Story: Vancouver workshop hosted by Ruby Fremon

My lovely spiritual sister Ruby Fremon is a transformational life coach as well as an energy healer and will be in Vancouver Saturday November 7th, 2015 hosting a workshop from 11 am – 1 pm Further information can be found at https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/own-your-story-vancouver-ruby-fremon?trk=prof-post The growth I have seen arise in Ruby over the years I have known her is very telling of her work. She has helped many, including myself come to terms with accepting and creating positive change in life and taking full control of your own actions. Living authentically and self-empowerment is the major gains I’ve received from our relationship. I encourage you all to take a look at what she has to offer and step outside of your comfort zone. Especially, if you find yourself in a never-ending cycle/rut and are looking for a new direction to take/new approach that works.

Sol Pasta

I always use the app MyFitnessPal for Iphone when cooking meals while on a diet because I find it is the most accurate in determining calorie/nutritional value of your prepared meal. Below I have posted photos of the ingredients used, including amounts, and calorie intake of each item. On medium heat, heat pan and tablespoon of organic extra virgin olive oil. Add chopped onion and garlic until the onions become translucent Turn down heat to medium-low and add in chopped Zucchini, sliced cherry tomatoes, and sun-dried tomatoes. Cook for 10 mins Bring water to boil in separate pot Pasta base mixture should start to reduce, add in capers, Basa and Italiano seasoning.

The passengers guide to proper airplane etiquette

Last October while traveling to New Zealand from Los Angeles I had an interesting run in with a fellow passenger on my flight who was, lets just say, less than becoming… Which inspired me to gather some information from fellow travelers and friends, about their experiences with the less than becoming airplane neighbor. I’ve been putting it off for awhile now, then low and behold my late night comedian crush Jimmy Kimmel releases a mini skit re-enacting many of these moments we all agree are the absolute worst, taken from a poll Expedia created on “the most annoying types of airline passengers” (See video below article) Without going into further detail about the video, I have listed my findings on what proper airplane etiquette is to being a good neighbor during your flight. Personal hygiene You’re sharing personal quarters with 100+ other passengers, make sure you’ve showered, taken your activated charcoal (natural way to reduce gas) and not over sprayed the perfume/cologne. When I was young, I flew alone as an unaccompanied minor, constantly. My …

Getting home safe: How trusted taxi drivers may not be so trustworthy after all

One of my closest girlfriends and I always talk about our horribly weird encounters with taxi drivers we’ve had over the previous weekend, (We both work in the industry, late nights and also enjoy our nights out on the town. We also both take taxis at LEAST once a day because we do not own cars). After hearing the same stories over and over again, but in different circumstances, I wondered how many other women were subject to the abuse and unwanted advances by these men who are employed to get women and people in general home safely, my friend inspired me to reach out and do my research, gather information and share the stories with you all. Let me begin with my first hand experience. My first unsavory encounter with a taxi driver in Vancouver BC Canada was at the age of 11, I was standing at a bus stop in the summer time, after a matinee on Granville street (when Granville 7 cinemas was still open). The bus stop was full of people …
