Cate Blanchett is luminous. She is classy, intelligent, gorgeous and a fine human being.
Getting to hear @vanessa craft, editor-in-chief of @ELLECanada (and the first Black EIC of any ELLE globally), speak tonight was such a gift. She is inspiring as hell and everything she said resonated so hard with me. “Don’t let anyone dim your shine.” #TheTalk18 @UforChange
I loved the Winter 2019 issue of ELLE Canada—from the Editor’s Note to the wonderful fashion layouts to the lifestyle section to the photography to the shopping suggestions to the horoscopes and much more. One article that really hit home with me was “Change of Plans” [ELLE Life] by Eva Wiseman. I have been on the receiving end of a “frequent flaker’s” last-minute bailing. I think that people who do this may very well be introverts and are just not aware of it. There’s nothing wrong with being an introvert, but there is something wrong with letting the other person down at the last minute on a whim. Why not find a diplomatic way to say no in the first place?

I loved the interview and cover story with Cate Blanchett [Winter 2019]. Like her, I am not a big social-media person. I loved that she pointed out that it often (sadly) replaces face-to-face interaction. I feel disappointed when a close family member or friend who could pick up the phone or even send an email decides to communicate solely through social media. It saddens me when I’m riding on public transit to see nine out of 10 people glued to a gadget. I do understand that there are a lot of positive uses for this tech, but sadly it seems to have taken over people’s lives.

I’m British but have been living in Kelowna, B.C., for three years. I work as a daycare owner, but I’m also a thrifter and big advocate for shopping second-hand! I would love to see more thrifted-clothing looks, thrift bloggers and vintage collectors in ELLE Canada.
