W.O.W. what a week.Â As I said to Eddie Wednesday night as we cabbed to CP24 to do my World AIDS Day spot, I feel like we’re all racing towards the finish line before the chill period known as The Holidays allows for some deserved R&R.Â It’s been a full-on, multi-tasking, focus-focus-focus time – here’s what I’m loving as we head into the weekend:
Yesterday, the first day in so many that couldn’t be aptly described as ‘frantic’, I took a mental health day and did pretty much sweet dick all.Â I used to take one a month back in my finance days as a rule – working for myself I guess that rule’s gone by the wayside these last ten years.Â But oh what bliss ..

I’ve got ‘Unexpected’, the EP by Austria’s Lylit on repeat right now.Â Her debut album Evasion comes out late winter and if the seven songs on her EP are indication, then Child, I think we have a retro-soul winner.
As I mentioned last week, for the first time in years I’m really in the Christmas spirit.Â Yesterday on my mental health day I even wrote letters to aunts and uncles in England I’ve not been good about staying in touch with, and on Tuesday my tech-dude, the handsome Kimon, shared this vid he shot of the CP Christmas train leaving Summerhill, which made me smile:
Oxygen facials.Â So perfect for the havoc this switcheroo in temperatures in Toronto is about to take on our skin, leaving you captial-M Moist.Â Can’t wait for mine this aft.
