I am a Photographer, retired Interior Designer and if I had to put a title on it- I am now a Lifestyle blogger. I don’t have a huge online or Social Media presence and I prefer to keep it that way. I pride myself on being honest and speaking up on matters that are important to me. My family and friends know me to be sarcastic, self-depreciating and brutally honest. My writing will reflect that and I make no apologies for it.
I started this blog as an outlet for my creativity, a way to stay connected to the world I love Interior Design/Decor, photography, creativity and living simply. My goal here is to share with you my experiences and knowledge learned along the way. I want to share my design knowledge and tips and also educate on what it is to be disabled and yet be a contributing, valued member of society.
A little background on me: I am living with a condition known as Ushers Syndrome. Ushers is a combined vision and hearing loss. #DeafBlind

I am from a beautiful place called The Rock aka Newfoundland and Labrador. After spending my childhood in Newfoundland it came time for me move to away to follow my passion and study Interior Design. (unfortunately the program was not offered in NL) Turns out I loved Ontario so much that I never did move back home.
For many, many years I worked as an Internationally certified Interior Designer and held accreditation from CDIQ and ARIDO. It was my dream career, my entire life. . Unfortunately there came a time when my eyes got bad to the point where I could not continue with my work as an Interior Designer so I ‘retired”. Since then I have been on a journey, so to speak, to find out who I am, what makes me happy and other ways to fill the void that losing my career left.
The past few years have been a journey of self-discovery.
