When times are tough, you do without. I have faced many financial constraints in my lifetime. I have banked over 15 years in retail experience, half of that while holding two Degrees. I have wrangled my way out of my student debt. I have suffered through maternity leave with a biweekly $75 deposited into my bank. So I know what it’s like to be working hard and doing without. Heck even now, I am working three jobs, ignoring having more children and have been snipping portions of my cheque in preparation for Christmas. When I say I’m preparing for the holiday season, I am not talking massive xbox and Iphone purchases, I need money to travel to Ontario for my…

News Round Up: Muskrat Falls

In response to the Muskrat Falls protest and the methylmercury levels, St. John’s East MP Nick Whalen tweeted “That is ridiculous. Just measure MeHg levels, eat less fish while MeHg levels are too high, and compensate.” Wait a second, did a white rich guy just tell a community of people how to face a problem? Did he suggest something that is not a solution and would be considered ridiculous if this was his home? Did a white guy just stand up in a position of power and completely dismiss a very serious situation that is affecting a great portion of his province? No WAY. Man, I don’t remember the last time a white guy ignored the problems of others while…

Social media has become a huge part of our lives. What started with dialing into your 56K modem to launch online message boards and ICQ in our spare time has evolved into an intimate extension of our real world persona.

While Facebook and Twitter have had their heyday, Instagram seems to be the platform at the forefront for people who either want to showcase their budding photography, myself included, or who want to upload daily selfies of themselves. And with features like…

Maddie Mills Photography: An Experience

in Features by

I met Maddie Mills in the fields of Lester’s Farm. She had requested my husband and I for a modeling shoot for some marketing materials. Her, along with the help of Live Wire Events and Nadia Ali Makeup Artistry, handpicked everything . From wedding gown to shoes, from  back drop to invitations. They had set up a completely fake wedding scene, in which I believed to be acting as a live prop. I was beyond wrong. I wasn’t a stand in to her photo shoot, but I was in the middle of an unexpected and lasting memory with my husband. Though I was unprepared for the outcome, it will remain  one of our favourite times together. Maddie does not simply…

The Northern Passage of Victim Blaming

I am so tempted to personally send a letter to Joel North and point out the obvious, but I truly think it’s a waste of my time. In case you never heard, Joel North got himself into some social media hot water the past week or so. A Coast 101.1 radio host responded to a woman’s tweet about live streaming her video gaming skills. In response, he tweeted: “you’d get more viewers if you were stripping.” Classy guy that Joel North, ain’t he? He’s one of a kind. I don’t have to point out that he is clearly diminishing this woman and implying that her only worth and talent is of sexual nature, because it seems pretty apparent. When it…
