This blog is where I share my ideas and love for simple food, classic style, and honest talk about parenting, mental health (anxiety in particular), and the joys of everyday life.
On SweetLifeStyle.ca, I want to inspire you to live slow. This means taking the time to appreciate what you have and enjoying life’s moments. It’s about knowing that some days are harder than others. It’s about understanding that taking an extra minute with someone can make the difference in their day. It’s about sitting outside in the sunshine or a snow-storm and experiencing nature.
I love to talk to people and find new ways of looking at things, so you’ll see posts about human connections and the relationships we have with family, friends, and our community.
Originally Lebanese, I grew up in Saudi Arabia in an American compound that is now Saudi Aramco. Yes, this makes me an Aramco Brat! I then went to high school and college in the US and ended up in Montreal after graduation. For the last 20 years or so, Toronto has been my home and nothing makes me prouder than living in Canada. Given Canada’s diverse population, I can celebrate my Lebanese roots while planting new ones in Canada.
In 2016, I received my Certificate in Digital Strategy & Communications Management from the University of Toronto. In fact, this blog was a certificate requirement but I loved the creative process so much that I continued with my blog!
I hope you’ll be inspired to think differently about food, life, and what’s important to you.
Please comment as often as you would like because I’d love to hear from you!
