A few days ago, Chad and I celebrated our five year anniversary. Sometimes I can’t believe that I’ve found someone who’s been able to handle the fact that I’m kinda messed up in my head, and still been able to see the human underneath and love her. In the…

You know how people interpret things differently all the time? And how that’s never created any sort of conflict ever, like whatsoever? Okay, yes, that second question was sarcastic, it sounded better in my head. But it’s still my intro to the world…

So, my birthday came and went, uneventfully, which was how I wanted it. It was also the anniversary of my breakdown. Maybe I should have watched that security video while eating popcorn, to show myself how far I’ve come in a year, but to be honest, I’m…

I meant to send out sparkly Christmas cards to everyone. But I’m sitting here today, staring at the stack of them, yet to be mailed out. Oops. Fuck it. You know I love you. I’ve been through a lot this year. That’s an understatement if I ever made one.…

It’s me. Okay, I’m not Adele (I WISH!), but I’m me. And hello. It’s been a while. I’ve gotten the urge to write a few times in recent weeks, but all the thoughts start screaming all at once, trying to be heard, and consequently, becomes the white noise of…

I voted today. Today, in Canada, is voting today in our federal election. I’m seriously hoping this is a time for change. We need new leadership. I want to live in a country of which I am proud. Under Harper’s “leadership” I am not very proud. Fingers…

I’ve been told a lot that I have no filter. My first chef used to walk behind me while i was prepping for service and in a singsong voice say “filter” to remind me to shut the hell up. I talk a lot is what I’m getting at. I used to apologise when I’d…

Hello friends,   I’m still in my rut. Failure to launch. I’ve been teetering on the edge of this pit of anxiety and depression. I’m scared to fall. I imagine it like the memory dump in Inside Out. I actually just watched that movie yesterday and holy crap…

I used to make resolutions because I felt inadequate. Lose weight. Save money. Go to the gym. Read more novels. I was never enough. The last two years have absolutely ripped me apart, and coming back from such a low point meant changes that mattered. They…

2015 has been a rough year. My anxiety and depression have kept me in a rollercoaster of meltdowns and to be honest, it’s left me exhausted this December. I’ve learned a lot about myself this year. Starting off the year, I was on stress leave, after…

So, I have a new Prime Minister :) Canada gets a new start, a chance to come together and work towards a better future. We will have some dark days, but always working towards a brighter tomorrow, something we’d definitely lost under Harper’s…

Hello friends. It’s been a while. I’m sorry if you’ve been worried about me. I’ve been doing well these days. I have learned a lot, let go of a lot, cried a lot, laughed a lot, walked a lot, worked a lot, and I’m happier. It takes hitting rock bottom to…

Fasten your seatbelts, this ain't gonna be no cake walk.
Introduction
G'day. I'm Victoria, a cake artist in Halifax NS. By day, I'm a hotel cook, by night (and days off) I'm a baking queen. Cupcakes are my weakness, cakes are exciting to me, and if I'm not covered in flour and buttercream, I am not in my happy place. 
Bragging rights
I made a brain cake that looked astonishingly real. It was kinda freaky. But also incredibly awesome.

I absolutely LOVED this place. My first visit to Chicago, and I was welcomed warmly. When I arrived, they took my bags up to my room while I checked in, and there was s block that my credit card company had placed on my card for some reason, and the guest services agent very kindly got them on the phone and gave me access to a computer so I could get it straightened out. I know it was silly, but I was flustered and frustrated with the card company and I was on the verge of tears for a while, and when everything was finally sorted and I was in my room, the guest services agent sent up the most wonderful cup of coffee I'd ever tasted, with a handwritten note, and a walking map with some areas of interest circled. Above and beyond. The room attendants were very polite and my room was nice and clean. The rooftop patio was a little crowded when I went up, but later in the evening, it was lovely and quiet, very relaxing and enjoyable. I will DEFINITELY stay there on my next visit to Chicago and will recommend this hotel to all my friends.
