Let Me Tell You A Little Story…

SAM+FARZ

A story about two of the most generous people I know – Samantha Jackson and Farz Yousefian. I’ve known Sam since kindergarten, and have watched her become a fierce advocate for change, giving herself wholly to any cause she involves herself with. She met her perfect match – Farz – who may very well rival Sam with his kindness and altruistic nature. Together they make an unstoppable team. They had planned their wedding for Spring 2016 – but both, being deeply involved in the efforts towards the Syrian humanitarian crisis, decided to do something amazing.

Wedding Etiquette

do's and don'ts

I wholeheartedly believe and preach that you should always try your best to be your true self in all social situations – off-beat humour, strange opinions, muumuu’s – the whole genuine, package. How else are you supposed to form any sincere connections otherwise? Drop any acts, and just be you, honey boo boo. However, I also think it’s important to follow some basic rules of thumb to keep from stepping too far outside the acceptable social boundaries. Some scenarios call for certain acceptable behaviours, and definite no-no’s exist. For example, at a work party, don’t hook up with a co-worker, don’t hug the boss frequently, and don’t get so inebriated that you attempt to perform the worm on the dance floor. It’s better to know these things ahead of time, rather than learning these mistakes among friends and esteemed colleagues. Another example of a social gathering that requires a healthy dose of good behaviour is holy matrimony – so without further hesitation – here are the (I) dos’ and don’ts of wedding etiquette.  Continue reading

It is officially that time in my life when friends have paired off with their one true loves, and are tying the knot. A very exciting time for any single, 27 year old female. But really, I’m thrilled for these pals, sincerely wish them a lifetime of happiness, and could not be more eager to celebrate their love! The last time I was a guest at a wedding I was just a young’en, sporting a poofy dress, and running around the dance floor like an absolute hooligan. The only things I anticipate being different now that I’m older is the lack of poof to my dress and access to the bar, which no doubt will mean the running around the dance floor like a hooligan part will stay exactly the same (if not on an amplified level). Here’s a playlist of my absolute favourite dance floor jams – making a fool myself a 100% guarantee.  Continue reading
