As I sit here writing this, it is a few days until I turn the big “3-0.” I wanted to take some time to reflect on the transformational decade that was my twenties. If I had to characterize my twenties, it was a decade filled with discovery, taking chances and just saying yes.
We’ve all been there. You have an event to attend and you want to look fabulous. You go to your favourite makeup store and try to get an appointment to get glammed up only to be met with “we’re all full that day.” Or, you do manage to score a coveted spot only to then sit there with a mall full of people walking around and the smell of food court french fries making your mouth water.
Will he like me? Do I look good enough? Do I feel desirable? These classic go-to questions seem to always buzz around in our heads when we’re on a new date. No matter how badly we want to flick away these flies of torment, and pretend they don’t exist, they always seem to creep up on our insecurities, feeding off our self-doubt. So, how can you banish these head bugs for good? The trick is changing the way you approach dating. The problem is that many women enter a dating situation with the hopes of impressing the guy and gaining his approval. Once you change this dynamic and realize your own power and worth, you can start feeling more secure on dates.

I can’t believe summer is half over! We have had a crazy busy summer this year. The beginning of July saw my husband and I spending a week out in British Columbia, my baby shower was just last weekend (a separate post on that soon!) and one of my good friends is visiting this weekend for an epic girl’s weekend in Toronto.
