Earlier this year, after much thought and discussion, I decided to revisit the idea of having some blonde streaks in my hair. But adding that little bit of brightness didn’t bring me the same kind of satisfaction it did ten years ago. I felt like going just a little further out of my comfort zone, inspired by this fabulous woman:

I just couldn’t shake the idea of doing something drastic, although I wasn’t positive pink was the way to go.

Life is short, and most of us waste too much time worrying about propriety and conforming. As Arlene Dickinson said in the talk I attended the other night, “You wouldn’t spend so much time worrying about what other people thought of you if you realized how little they did.”

And so I decided it was time for a change, courtesy of my stylist Kay at Flaunt Boutique.

Toronto Neighbourhoods 2016

Liberty Village

Toronto Life has released its 2016 rankings of Toronto’s 140 neighbourhoods, using weighted criteria ranging from affordability of housing to crime rates. New this year is the ability to customize the weighting feature to match your own priorities.

I can’t say that I always agree with their findings, since you will find both good and bad pockets in pretty much every neighbourhood, but it’s an excellent place to start your research if you’re looking to make a change.
