EVER HEARD OF LOVE’S “HONEYMOON PHASE?”

EVER HEARD OF LOVE’S “HONEYMOON PHASE?”

By Elizabeth Sande

Ever heard of the honeymoon phase? The honeymoon phase is early times in a relationship, when the hormones are firmly in control and love is pure bliss.  It’s pretty much like walking on sunshine 24/7. Continue Reading

BREAK-UPS ARE TRICKY BUSINESS

BREAK-UPS ARE TRICKY BUSINESS

By Elizabeth Sande

Breakups are tricky business. In a perfect world it’s a mutual decision but take it from someone who dates more than I feel comfortable admitting….that almost never happens. Continue Reading

THE “EXIT BINDER” – REFLECTIONS ON WHO I WAS AND WHO I AM NOW

THE “EXIT BINDER” – REFLECTIONS ON WHO I WAS AND WHO I AM NOW

By Elizabeth Sande

Sometimes after a busy period of time your living space can become a mess – like mine! My friends and family would tell you that my space looks like a bomb went off scattering books, magazines, shoes, clothes, purses, notes, pens, hair pins, make up, basically my whole life everywhere, making it unbearable.

REFLECTIONS ON MY FIRST TRIP DOWN THE CATWALK

REFLECTIONS ON MY FIRST TRIP DOWN THE CATWALK

By Lizz Sande

Sunday was the opening night for Alberta Fashion Week at Eau Claire Market and I walked their 65-foot runway, something I never thought I’d do. The idea of ‘strutting my stuff’ in front of so many people, most with cameras, made me feel a little sick. Let’s just say I’ve never been more nervous. Continue Reading

A SWEAT-PANTS GIRL WALKING THE FASHION WEEK RUNWAY

A SWEAT-PANTS GIRL WALKING THE FASHION WEEK RUNWAY

Yep…That’s me on the Alberta Fashion Week poster. Modeling and trying something new turned into something I never expected.

By Lizz Sande

I’m still a naked faced, ponytail and sweat pants kind of girl who goes for comfort more often than style. But with Alberta Fashion Week running Sept. 26 through Oct. 2 at Eau Claire Market, I’m ready to switch it up, try some new things, and learn a few tricks because I still don’t understand fashion. Continue Reading

A LIFE CHANGE INSPIRED BY BRIDGET JONES

A LIFE CHANGE INSPIRED BY BRIDGET JONES

By Lizz Sande

I did the unthinkable…I have become a member at a gym. Maybe it’s because I love Bridget Jones and it was on TV last night but I woke up this morning and I just needed a change. People who know me know that I am not a gym fan. Continue Reading

THE THING ABOUT BEING OBLIVIOUS

THE THING ABOUT BEING OBLIVIOUS

By Lizz Sande

When my friends used to tell me “he really likes you,” I would roll my eyes while saying “no he doesn’t, we’re just friends!” Now when my friends tell me the exact same thing, I respond with the exact same line but I’ve matured from the eye roll. Simply put, I am oblivious when it comes to approaches from the opposite sex. Continue Reading

On the weekend, my grandparents had a beautiful 50th anniversary party with approximately 66 people. This included the original wedding party, some original wedding guests, the whole family, and a ton of extended family that has accepted the fact that they’re stuck with us. Continue Reading

LIFE LESSONS IN EXPIRED KRAFT SINGLES?

LIFE LESSONS IN EXPIRED KRAFT SINGLES?

By Lizz Sande

Do you think it’s possible for almost anything to teach you a lesson? I do. If you fall off a ladder, you learn to be more careful or to get someone to hold it steady. If you stub your toe, you remind yourself to pick up your feet when you walk or that you shouldn’t walk there in bare feet.

I’ve just learned a lesson from an extremely expired pack of Kraft Singles. Continue Reading

HEAD OR HEART

HEAD OR HEART

 By Lizz Sande

I’ve been under the impression that love is unconditional, but maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s just a myth. Maybe it’s something we see in movies and read about in books so we have something to hope for, to look forward to. Perhaps it’s something that we want, just to want. Or maybe I’m just disappointed that this guy wasn’t the right guy, again. Continue Reading
