Happy International Women’s Day, y’all! Ladies have accomplished a lot since last year’s International Women’s Day—fostering the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements and organizing a second Women’s March, for example—and those accomplishments are definitely worth celebrating.
Today is International Women’s Day, and it’s no secret that we live and breath #GIRLPOWER around here. It’s also no secret that we’re just a little obsessed with Toronto artist RALPH. She’s already set the mood with us in studio, and now she’s back to set the mood for your International Women’s Day with a specially curated Spotify playlist!
She’s a fierce feminist, she’s in a rock band, she has a Masters in Journalism AND she’s obsessed with soup dumplings. Lauren Mayberry of CHVRCHES is the definition of everything we’ve ever wanted to be in this world (at least we have the soup dumpling thing down).
Feeling stressed? Depressed? Or just not your best? Whatever the drama, you deserve some time quality ~me time~
Whether a hot bubble bath is your thing or simply just curling up in bed, we’ve curated three different nighttime routines based around one of our fave essential oils– so they’re as beneficial as they are relaxing.
Valentine’s Day sometimes feels like it’s more complicated than it’s worth. If you’re in a relationship, what should you do to show your significant other that you love them? How much is too much? Is it necessary to put in more effort on Valentine’s Day than on any other day of the year? And if you’re single, should you try to go out and meet someone? Should you curl up on the couch with a cup of tea and a sappy rom-com? Or should you try to forget that Valentine’s Day exists altogether?
If we’re being perfectly honest, all the exciting, mature Valentine’s Day visions we dreamed up as kids didn’t turn out to be that exciting after all. Valentine’s Day is supposed to be a fun, frilly celebration of love, but instead it’s become an excuse to stress out about either being in a relationship or not being a relationship. Discount chocolate sales and romantic movie marathons aside, we don’t think we’d miss Valentine’s Day if it suddenly and mysteriously went away.
If you ever need an instant mood-booster, just sit down with Jade Bird. Her laugh is infectious, her mind is brilliant (and a little kooky), and we recently found out, her moodboard making skills are top notch. On the other hand- if you ever need to cry in the rain, just put on her EP ‘Something American’ and go.
Watch below as Jade chats about how she got into music, what it’s like to attend one of her shows, and what we can expect from her new music. And don’t miss her completed moodboard below!
Get your game face pants on because Super Bowl Sunday is almost here!
You may have heard that the Super Bowl is for football, but ~in our eyes~ it’s actually known as the championship of snacking. Wings and pizza are go-to choices, but it’s not a bad idea to also have some healthier options on hand (new year, new me…I guess).
Here are five healthy (and honestly very tasty) Super Bowl snack ideas that won’t be met with any *interference* from your viewing party guests.
Meditation is a way to train your mind, similar to how fitness is an approach to training your body. It can be a way to relax, deal with anxiety and even release you inner ~guru~ But you don’t have to splurge on a meditation coach or devote multiple hours to the practice. Sometimes all it takes is a couple minutes of thoughtful breathing techniques to calm the mind.
Practicing meditation might not be for everyone, but with tomorrow being Bell Let’s Talk Day, we wanted to ~talk~ about how to add a little more mindfulness into your everyday. Here’s the FORA-1-1 on how to be your own meditation guru.
When the Oscar nominees were announced yesterday (January 23rd) one name stuck out in particular. With her 21st nomination, Meryl Streep broke her own Oscar record for most nominations *emoji clap x 100*

Last January, thousands of women, men, and non-binary folks from all over the world banded together to advocate for women’s rights and the rights of those who feel oppressed or silenced. And this year they’ll be at it again, with a Women’s March that promises to be even bigger and better than the first.
