We’re growing up!

jentrified

Oh hey you little blonde, bronzed…thirtysomething?

Ever since my 30th birthday back in June, I’ve been working on growing: personally, professionally, perfectly. Done are the days of being single in the city, navigating tricky relationships, friendships, and the like. Done are the days of blogging daily about all things dating and relationships. And though I love talking about all things under that umbrella, I’ve grown up, as have you, my beloved, blonde, bronzed readers.

So with that said, it has come a time where I must bid adieu to Blonde, Bronzed, Twentysomething and start a new chapter in my life: jentrified.

jentrified will be my new home and I invite you to join me in it.

jentrified is a more mature, grown up version of my acclaimed blog Blonde, Bronzed, Twentysomething, which received international attention and won awards for best dating and relationship blog and has been featured on the nations top morning and radio shows. jentrified will still cover dating and relationship advice and tips, but will also include all the various types of relationships we inhabit. Relationships with our parents, our children, our colleagues and our friends. Relationships with ourselves, our health and wellness, our relationships (read: obsessions) with food and drink, and our desire to host and entertain with finesse.

jentrified is your destination for all of life’s lusts. You can expect advice, tips, suggestions and ideas on how to make your life as easy as possible, but still filled with balance and abundance. It’s luxurious. It’s easy to navigate. And it will be answering all your questions on all things life, love and lust  and how to conquer life’s little questions, before you even ask them.

So join me on this new journey in my life. A sharper tone. A deeper look in. Into yourself. Into myself. Into this wondrous thing called life and how to inhabit it with flair. I’ll have lots of surprises and some great partnerships and can’t wait to disclose it to you as it all unfolds.

Be sure to check out my holiday gift guide that will be live on the site tomorrow in time for my launch, with suggestions from notable Canadians including Jessica Mulroney, George Stroumboulopoulos, Erin Kleinberg, Susur Lee, Shinan Govani and Natasha Koifman, amongst others. Find out what the head of Luxury and Lifestyle for InStyle Magazine has to say about jentrified, and bookmark this page to be sure you soak in my daily updates, tales and challenges.

But before I air kiss your contoured cheeks goodbye, I want to thank you. Thank you so very much for reading my blog, sharing your comments, challenging me with your questions, and sticking by as I grew over these past five plus years. I hope I too challenged you and helped you navigate your relationships and friendships when the going got tough. I admire all you readers who have come to BBTS in hopes of getting feedback and advice to get through the pains and challenges life unfairly threw your way in but a moments notice. Thank you readers for making BBTS the go-to site in Canada for all things dating and relationships. It’s been a wild ride and I couldn’t have been on it without you all.
