This is 35.

Those that know me… know I love birthdays. My birthday, your birthday, your friend’s birthday. BIRTHDAYS!!! Yes, you’ve been to my weeklong celebrations. But for some reason this year is different. 35 is definitely a hard year to swallow. I remember thinking 30 was a little scary, but this birthday forces me into a totally new age bracket— I am now “35 and over”, which spans from 35 until… I’m pretty sure, the end 😉   I really can’t tell which one is more horrifying…the actual number 35, or saying it out loud. Thirty- five. Thirty-five. No matter how you see[…]

The Bay Awesome TBay 2019 Summer Bucket List

It’s summertime and livin’ is easy!! (and I’m going to make it even easier for you). I’ve rounded up all of my favorite summer activities, places, spaces, adventures, and even food, in the Thunder Bay area to make sure you’re getting the best of the bay in what the season has to offer. By the time September rolls around, you’ll be thinking “that was the most AWESOME summer ever.” Because we all know how the summer months can just fly by— faster than that sailboat you promised you’d go on with your friends, so get moving!  With Lake Superior, exotic looking animals,[…]

Life in Full Bloom.

I was having cocktails with one of my best friends the other night, going on and on about that new Beyoncé documentary on Netflix… you know, the one that chronicles everything that went into that unforgettable Coachella performance, (the show that was sooooo worth the midweek sleep deprivation). Anyhow, halfway through talking about the Blue Ivy appearance, I noticed she wasn’t listening to a word I said… HELLO!! Beyoncé … Blue Ivy…personal stories from the Queen Bey. How rude. I knew I wasn’t boring her with my conversation,  so why the hell was she not paying attention!? After calling her out on her[…]

Rise darling, don’t fall.

I won’t ever forget the day I launched my blog. I was so excited and happy to introduce my “baby” and work of passion to the world— something that was years in the making and a project I poured my heart and soul into. However, the day didn’t quite end the way I had envisioned it to. The day Bayawesome went live, I received a lot of support- really positive messages, texts, calls… but an email I received later that night took all of my attention. I fixated on it as it defeated all of the encouragement of the day, and[…]

2016: The year of____________.

It will go down as the year known for netflix and chill, Pokemon Go,  Gord Downie and the Secret Path, Beyonce’s lemonade, Facebook reactions, NHL playoff hero Matt Murray, crop tops, Donald Trump, snapchat filters, and the mannequin challenge… (along with a lot of other awesome and not so awesome things). 2016.  Also now being crowned as the “worst year ever”.  (Ummmm a little dramatic don’t you think??) Over the last couple of days I have seen social media explode about how much people want 2016 to end, how much they hate it… loathe it…oh the drama. Drama, drama, drammmmaaaaaa.[…]

ONE YEAR OF #BAYAWESOME.

Today we celebrate! Happy Anniversary Bay Awesome! Cheers to a year of writing, sharing and just simply Bay’in Awesome!!! I like writing, but I have discovered over the past few years that I really love blogging and writing about things that make me buzz, raise my eyebrows, and make me feel energized. It’s  pretty neat when you discover what you’re passionate about in life. There was a moment when I was writing, that I completely forgot about the outside world, felt in the zone, my soul pouring onto paper… I found my happy! Pay close attention to those seconds in[…]

I have to be honest…I’ve lost my AWESOME.

I am in a slump. Yes, the woman who writes to you about being awesome and annoys you with post after post of motivational and inspiring quotes, is in a slump, and even worse, can’t get out!!! It’s true, even the most motivated of us — you, me, Oprah Winfrey — can feel unmotivated at times. In fact, sometimes we get stuck in such a slump that even thinking about digging our way out seems too difficult, even impossible. I have to admit, I’m feeling pretty low about myself. It’s gotten so bad, that at this point I’ve  worn a[…]

Walk like an Egyptian- It’s MY Birthday!

You know there are a lot of people in this world that don’t celebrate birthdays- from not wanting attention, not thinking that another year passing is anything to celebrate, fear of getting older, being  humble… I’ve heard it all.  I’ve had a good amount of birthdays as I turn the big 3-1 this year, but every single year I still continue to make sure there is some sort of to-do. There has to be, there is no other way. Starting at a young age- New Kids on the Block theme parties, throwing on roller skates at Wheelies (so classic); and[…]

Now go, Bay Awesome.

Let’s face it- we are all awesome human beings. I like to think that as a baby I was dropped into a pool of glitter and awesomeness…and maybe some bronzer too. I truly didn’t recognize this inner self awesomeness or who I really was until my 30th year. Just thinking about the gal I was in my 20’s- so much wasted brain space and worries on things that really didn’t matter…’She doesn’t like me, he won’t ever date me, I can’t do this, I’m not good at that.’ People would say, ‘Amanda Bay- You just have to be yourself,‘ and I thought, ‘But[…]
