Jason and I.
Robert and I. Eeeeek. 

This Monday was the 25th Annual Sterling Awards (the Tony's of Edmonton), the one night a year where almost all of Edmonton's theatre community gathers in the same theatre to celebrate an amazing season of work. I'm so honoured that I was nominated for outstanding Choreography for my work on The Hoof and Mouth Advantage (We even got to perform it at the Awards!).  Two of the shows that I was in won some big awards! Mayfield's Chicago picked up the award for Outstanding Musical and Bells Are Ringing won for Outstanding Fringe Production! I just want to say a huge congrats to ALL of the Sterling Noms and Winners. It was a beautiful evening! Here are some outfit pictures I managed to take on that crazy night! 

I'm Wearing: 
Hair Bret - DIY
Trench Coat - Vintage, London Fog
Dress: Vintage
Shoes: Urban Outfitters

Thanks for reading!

Camping: Day 1






Remi and I went camping to the Jasper National Park last week in the mountains of Alberta. We had such a great time out in the wilderness! Here are some pictures from out first day! 

A.  This was the beautiful view from our tent! 
B.  That's George. He was our little neighbour that was determined to eat dinner with us. 
C.  Right after we set up our tent it started raining! We were both very thankful for the tarps that Remi bought earlier that day! We put one tarp over the tent and the other we used to fashion ourselves a little   hut by the fire! 
D.  After dinner the sky cleared up and this beautiful rainbow appeared as we drove to the Miette Hotsprings. 
E. The ratty little mountain sheep were along the roadsides of Jasper. 
F. Remi looking refreshed after our time at the Hotsprings. 
G. The beautiful sunset as we drove back to our campsite! 

More pictures to come - thanks for reading!

Here are some of the beautiful faces of the cast and crew of Chicago.

The Scoop.

Hey, pals! 

I am back from my camping trip with many wonderful pictures to share! I plan on doing some series on my blog and wanted to let you guys know what's coming up, along with a little personal blurb! I am planning a Chicago and camping series, as well as continuing with my series on athingofthepast Vintage, along with a few outfit posts as per usual and some final apartment pictures. 

Here's my little blurb.

As some of you might now I am moving back to Vancouver! I have been living in Edmonton, Alberta for the past few years doing school and now working. For pretty much all of my life I have been so focused on my career, I haven't had time to truly adventure! So, this is the beginning of my adventure. I am moving from Edmonton back to my home base, Vancouver! I am teaching a summer school at my old dance school, the Richmond Academy and then I'm moving back home to party with my parents for a few weeks. I've been keeping it on the DL just to make sure it was really going to happen and now I think it is close enough to let everyone know that I have applied for my UK work visa and am heading off to Europe! This has been a dream of mine from a very young age and I'm super excited to see this dream come true. 

Although I am extremely excited for this next chapter of my life, it has really made me reflect on the past 4 years of my life. I have learnt so much, it's unbelievable. I have lost two very important people in my life. My teacher and the Chair of the theatre Arts Program at Grant MacEwan University, Tim Ryan and my beloved Oma. I have made so many great friends and have worked on some really cool shows. I can proudly say that I am a working performer and now I am leaving all of this to go travel and explore, something I know that will make me a better performer. I just wanted to thank all of my friends, classmates and co-workers here in Edmonton for making these past 4 years pretty darn amazing. 

So here is to new beginnings - thanks for reading!
