The Old & The New

I haven’t written a blog post in a very long time. Mostly because I haven’t had any idea what to do with this space. 2020 was a trying year for all of us, and although I want to believe that I was largely very positive, optimistic and light-hearted, this whole situation has started to grateContinue reading “The Old & The New”

Janille in Paris ~ #ThrowbackThursday + #JNGWatches

I think we’re all feeling a bit of wanderlust right now. I’ve never been a big holiday person, and I certainly wasn’t the type to go on a trip every single year. The inability to travel at the moment, though, has definitely made me feel the itch, the incurable restlessness, to get  up out ofContinue reading “Janille in Paris ~ #ThrowbackThursday + #JNGWatches”

Real Pregnancy Talk: Party of Two

Let’s talk about how it really feels to go from being two to being three. About a month ago, I learned that my favourite musical (and one of my favourite French stories) of all time, The Phantom of the Opera, will be returning to Toronto in January.

The Persian ~ Le Personnage Principal of A Christmas Fairytale

All signs led to him. “I was immensely interested by this story of the Persian. I wanted, if there were still time, to find this valuable and eccentric witness. My luck began to improve and I discovered him in his little flat in the Rue de Rivoli….I also went into the past history of theContinue reading “The Persian ~ Le Personnage Principal of A Christmas Fairytale”

High Lady

“Night Triumphant – and the Stars Eternal.” ~ A Court of Wings and Ruin Sometimes you get so obsessed with a book that it starts to slowly take over aspects of your entire life. Welcome to my world. These obsessions with fictional realms and characters are something I have experienced since I was a child.Continue reading “High Lady”

Introductions – #JNGListens

“…no thoughts within her head, but thoughts of joy! No dreams within her heart but dreams of love!” – The Phantom of the Opera In most relationships, there’s always that tricky moment when you have to introduce your new love to your first (and usually former) love. This is exactly what I had to doContinue reading “Introductions – #JNGListens”

By Heart – #JNGListens …over…and over…and over…

Today, I’ll be interrupting the recent Christmas cheer here on the blog to discuss one of the greatest influences in my life. I know that’s a pretty bold and serious statement to make, but I think it’s definitely true.  The piece of pop culture that I’m about to talk about has been a significant partContinue reading “By Heart – #JNGListens …over…and over…and over…”
