Even Though Styles Change… THIS is Always In Fashion

Styles change. Trends disappear. But know what’s always in fashion?


Because saying THANK YOU never goes out of style. 📸 shot by #wweiimage @wweiimage Website

Had an incredible time emceeing Toronto Kids Fashion Week, both shows were SOLD OUT. I brought positive energy, showed some of my dance moves, and kept the event FUN and entertaining.

Congratulations to the models, all designers and the entire team behind the scenes!

How To Deal With Setbacks

ABOUT SETBACKS: We all get ’em. And the crappy part is they usually come unexpected.

A mentor taught me this: The biggest mountain to climb isn’t what happened… but what you want to happen NEXT. 🗻

What do YOU choose:
1️⃣ Hide in the valley?
2️⃣ Climb higher?

Just like you, I’ve had my setbacks. But I want you to know the view above is worth fighting for! Tell yourself you’re worth the fight! Keep climbing!🧗

OPTIMISM: Why You Are What You Drink

THEY SAY YOU are what you drink! Are you filling your cup with bad news and negative media? Or do you start your day with a cup of gratitude?

*** HINT: ***

Start your day with the second cup. Life tastes much better when you do! You’ll complain less, your mood gradually changes, you’ll look and feel younger, people will want to hang around you more, and new opportunities start to unfold.

YOU ATTRACT WHAT you think about most of the time. So if you’re constantly reading about bad news, tragic events, and doom and gloom, you’ll unconsciously manifest that daily.

Just like your favourite cup of joe, choose your drink wisely. Because in the battle between optimism vs pessimism… OPTIMISM always wins👏🏾👏🏾☀️

Why You Should Learn New Stuff

YOU’VE HEARD 📣 ME SAY over and over and over again… Learn new stuff!

Too many peeps graduate high school, college/university, and they think they know everything. They stop learning. In reality, graduation is just the START of the life learning process.

FYI: No, you DON’T know everything. Simmer down. 🙄

There are more experiences to be had, new perspectives to embrace, and unlimited truths to learn. Until you start exploring and diving deeper, you don’t know what you don’t know… So don’t be close-minded. An investment in KNOWLEDGE always pays the best interest!

Don’t be a “know it all…” Be a LEARN it all! Learn as much as you can, as fast as you can, while you can, so you can start enriching your life and the lives of others.
