I’m Kate Bray; 20-something academic advisor, occasional actor and obsessed traveler living in beautiful Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I graduated from Dalhousie University where I completed my Bachelor of Arts, Honours Degree in Theatre and was a member of the Classical Acting Programme. I don’t do a ton of acting anymore, but I do love being on camera (check out this page to watch some featured morning TV appearances) and sharing stories, which is one of the main reasons I started blogging.
I believe in the importance of being true to yourself and doing what makes you truly happy. I have always been fiercely independent, slightly stubborn and I will (politely) take no sh*t. I was raised from a young age to practice the golden rule: “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” I write about what matters to me when inspiration strikes. I love sharing my thoughts, product recommendations, and favourite things with my readers. Just call me an aspiring Oprah/Kelly Ripa hybrid.
Traveling is my greatest passion. I have been fortunate enough to travel to 16 countries so far and I hope to make that number climb more and more as I get older. Paris is my favourite city in the world, but I also loved Ezé Village in the South of France and Corfu, Greece.
I love to drink wine; rosé and cava are my favourite. A perfect night with my girl friends would include several glasses of the aforementioned wine, some nice charcuterie, a baguette, and the surprise mojito. If we are close, you can best believe that I will frequently suggest a wine bar as a meet up spot.
I’m a #girlwithguts (in other words, I have Ulcerative Colitis) and it affects every day of my life. I regularly write about my experiences with chronic illness and my treatments with Humira (I’ve previously been prescribed Remicade and Entyvio, too). Due to my compromised health, I’m very keen on staying healthy, eating well, and exercising. I’m obsessed with Barre fitness and it’s truly changed my life! I passed my barre instructor certification and am looking forward to future teaching opportunities and honing my technique.

I hope you’ll follow along with me!
Love, Kate Bray
