.@shanique_f and @sabhaque came back to me because they heard me say I wanted to take a photo with them for Instagram. I showed them that I already had taken my secret one with them in background. They loved it. And they posed with me for this one. They're so nice! Later Shan will email me a pic she took of me with her fancy camera. Shan said my pic looks great and asked if I have an iPhone 7. I told her it's just a 6S, but that I use the big lens for my selfies and shoot blind, because the big lens shoots in higher resolution. 🌈 #torontopride #prideto #toronto #pride2017 #equality #travelblog #vlog #vlogger #photographer #blogger 🌈 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


@shanique_f and her friend just asked me to take their pic. I took a few and Shan said I was really good. I told them I like taking photos. Check them out in my Instagram Story! Shan goes to school in Ottawa and her friend is from Barrhaven, near where I grew up.

Walked over to #PrideTO right at end of parade, to check it out. Am posting clips in my Instagram Story. Next year I'll be lean enough to go shirtless like these beefcakes. 🌈 #torontopride #pride2017 #Toronto #vlog #vlogger #equality #travelblog #fitness #health 🌈 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

‪I've barely posted previous vid of @Much @iHeartRadioCA #MMVAs2017 @starsecurity guard poisoning young fans and he's already on another cigarette.‬ At least he's working hard at something? 💨😷 #Toronto #concert #smoker #health #musicblog #influencer #vlogger #blogger #securityguard ☠️ I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Hey @muchmusic @iheartradio - Why block people on Queen St from being able to see #MMVA?

Watched 2nd half of @guardiansofthegalaxy on @netflix on my MacBook Pro on treadmill! Ran for an hour and the time flew by! This is one my best ideas ever. The condo has downgraded the cable in the gym and we just get 10 channels on the treadmill TVs and I hate watching sports and @theellenshow is only at noon and @entertainmenttonight is in the eve and I can only watch so much @cp24breakingnews. So this week I had the idea to take my laptop down to the gym, but then I nixed that cuz remembered that I often yank the headphones out of the treadmill socket, and that would send my laptop flying. But then I remembered I have wireless @sony headphones that a production company gave me for a Christmas present about four years ago, and they've just been sitting in their box and I recently put them up for sale online but haven't decided to take on offer yet. So I filmed an unboxing today (for http://youtube.com/joshrachlis) and took the headphones for a run. I might wind up watching a movie a day now! And maybe I'll lose 20 lbs? I could be the fittest movie reviewer ever! Stayed tuned! 🎥 🏃🏼 #gym #fitness #runner #weightloss #condo #treadmill #Toronto #entertainmentnews #headphones #techblog 💻 🎧 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Tonight's excitement beneath my balcony: Wedding reception with the bride and groom dancing to Kissed By A Rose while the guests wave sparklers. I'd groan at the cheesiness, but that would just be to hide my deep desire to be that bride. Wait, what? 👰🏻 #condo #Toronto #realestate #wedding #weddingdress #bride #eventspace #influencer #socialmediaexpert #dancing 🤵 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

I've started using @shapr_app, which is like @tinder but for networking with like-minded professionals. Kimberly Johnston @kimmyj02 is my first in-person meeting (I suggested my fav @secondcupcanada). Kim has overcome health issues like 2 strokes - During the 2nd one she thought she was going to die - And she's using her second chance at life to pursue her dream of celebrating niceness. Her site, nicecity.ca @nicecity_toronto, acknowledges acts of kindness that would otherwise go unnoticed. She gives out these bracelets (NiceCity.ca on front, "It's nice to be noticed" on back) to reward people for nice acts. She also gave a @dlishcupcakes cupcake to a random stranger in Trinity Bellwoods Park to celebrate NiceCity's Twitter hitting 70 followers. Oh, and her dog #blarneyobudrick is famous for sitting with his head out the window of Kim's King Street West brownstone. She's put a sign in the window with his hashtag so she can find when people post photos of him. He recently had his 10th birthday party in a park so his fans could celebrate with him. Anyway, I think Kim said we're supposed to pass the bracelet on to people we see doing nice things. So my bracelet and I will be watching you, #Toronto! 🏘 #networking #influencer #blogger #gooddeeds #charity #travelblog #entrepreneur #socialmediaexpert 🐶 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

More useful feedback from songwriter @ani.matevos. She likes how I pop in and out of frame in my vlogs. And I explain to her why I do that - So enjoy the behind-the-scenes info! (I couldn't fit it into this photo, but the rest of my answer was that I have to go back behind the camera so that I can see the button to stop the filming.) If anyone else ever has feedback for me, feel free to let me know! I love learning what people like and don't like so I can improve. And it's just nice to know if people are even watching! 📲 #influencer #vlog #iPhone #tech #Toronto #socialmediaexpert #videographer #travelvlog #travelvlogger #travel 📸 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


An encouraging note from European songwriter @ani.matevos about my brick stories! Details: I mentioned my love of brick buildings in my Insta Story on Thursday, which I just now uploaded to YouTube and Facebook. To keep up with the theme, I made a 10-second video of a brick wall on today's Instagram Story. In response, I got a kind message from @ani.matevos saying she likes my brick reports! So I shall keep doing them. 🏡 #influencer #vlog #brickwall #architecture #heritagebuilding #urbanplanning #condo #realestate #interiordesign #Toronto 🏡 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad


Workers revealing the real brick wall! As part of my ongoing series of me appreciating old brick walls, here's the heritage house (now @la_carnita) beside my condo, where they're scrapping off a fake brick facade to reveal the real brick beneath. (Note: I mentioned brick buildings in my Insta Story on Thursday, which I just now uploaded to YouTube and Facebook. To keep up with the theme, I made a 10-second video of this wall on today's Instagram Story. Then right after, I decided to shoot this longer version because I really like the wall. Later today, in response to the Story, I got a kind message from @ani.matevos saying she likes my brick reports! So I shall keep doing them.) 🏡 #Toronto #heritagebuilding #architecture #brickwall #brick #antique #vlog #urbanplanning #interiordesign #realestate 🏡 I am a: #celebrityinterviewer #entertainmentreporter #radiohost #tvhost #comedian #actor #voiceactor #singersongwriter #cartoonist #screenwriter #filmcritic #travelblogger #lifestyleblogger #foodblogger #entertainmentblogger #fashionblogger #mommyblogger #YouTuber #podcaster #digitalnomad

Looks like last night's German beer commercial shoot on my condo terrace was a wild time. I guess I should have slipped into my lederhosen and joined them.
