TWEETS @vram067

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

POST BAIL

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.
