BollyFuze, now what?

This past summer I found a fabulous GroupOn deal for 10-classes of BollyFuze!  The instructor (Melissa K) was fantastic and the studio space was great + located super central at StreetDanceAcademy at Queen W/Spadina Sts.  With classes on a Sunday that started at noon, made it perfect for me to still go out Saturday night, sleep in a…

#BoPo Art Installation

Earlier this month I blogged about my friend Karen and her hubs, Peter’s store anniversary party.  Their store, Your Big Sister’s Closet turned 1 this month and I was asked to be a window model for their Body Positivity Art Installation.  The concept was to make plus sized women more visible and to address what is not usually addressed.
