In 2020, I found myself in a tailspin that led to one of the greatest transitions of my life. In today’s world, we’re always expected to know what we’re doing and where we’re headed, but that feeling—of being completely untethered and lost is, it turns out, completely normal. It can even be life-affirming. On flipflops, I speak with creatives and change-makers to find out how they navigated big waves of their own transitions. Our minds flip-flop, the world flip-flops, our circumstances flip-flop. Let's ride the waves together.

    Jake Epstein: Falling is Funny

    You know actor, singer and writer Jake Epstein from TV shows like Degrassi: The Next Generation, Designated Survivor, Suits and The Umbrella Academy. Jake has had an illustrious career on the stage, most notably on Broadway as Spiderman.

    Jake is now on tour performing his one man show Boy Falls from The Sky.  He shares his story - from child actor to Broadway star - at the Segal Centre through December 10th.

    I attended Opening Night and I loved this honest, unique and personal comedy so much, that I had to find out more about the writing process.

    From hot dogs, to meeting your heroes - to what it feels like to fly on Broadway (in the most expensive show ever with music by U2) - to how funny it is to rise and fall. We talk BTS and find out the hilarious genesis of the show.

    Sisterhood: Liz Plank & Emilie Plank

    Sisterhood: Liz Plank & Emilie Plank

    Welcome to a new series where we celebrate sisterhood. Our biological sisters, and the ones who show up and carry us through life. We celebrate the timeless and invisible bonds that mysteriously tie us together.
    Liz Plank and Emile Plank are both writers. Liz Plank is a journalist and an award-winning author. You know her from MSBC, the Man Enough Podcast with Justin Baldoni and Race to 35 with Monica Padman. (BTW – Liz and Monica just announced that they are starting a new podcast where they will answer your questions, so be sure to send them one here: https://hello243414.typeform.com/to/GE5qpufa?utm_source=substack&utm_medium=email!)
    Emilie Plank is a teacher and recently published her first children’s book: Les Galettes de grand-maman. I wrote about
    it on Mitsou Magazine and called it The Kid’s Book Making the Adults Cry. I, like many adults, got very emotional reading the book. It’s a diamond. It’s about a wolf cub who immigrates to Canada and faces discrimination. Ultimately, it’s a book about empathy.
    I wanted to talk to Liz and Emilie about their childhood, how they made each other who they are, and how they inspired each other to become authors.
    You can purchase Les Galettes de grand-maman here: https://www.quebec-amerique.com/collections/jeunesse/3-ans-et-plus/albums/les-galettes-de-grand-maman-10594.

    Sarain Fox: We Are Light Too

    Sarain Fox is a storyteller who amplifies indigenous voices. Sarain is an activist, a dancer, an award-winning filmmaker and an ambassador.

    During the pandemic when elders were at their most vulnerable, Sarain was compelled to document her Aunty Mary's story about her experience as a residential school survivor. This deeply moving documentary called Inende was just nominated for a Canadian Screen Award.

    We talk about the documentary, why having children is a revolutionary act and her hopes for the future. Sarain is a rare gift. She has been a Tedx speaker, a guest judge on Canada's Drag Race, and has been featured in Vogue, Nylon and The New York Times to name a few. She sheds light on her community as an ambassador for brands like Nike, Sephora and Canada Goose.

    As we spoke, Sarain was nursing her newborn son in the hotel where she filmed Inendi. She had just celebrated her Aunty Mary's 87th birthday.

    Creative Couples: Abeille Gélinas and Na'eem Adam

    Every time I sit down for a meal with Abeille and Na'eem, I am in awe of their constant evolution and support for one another. Their curiosity and connection is inspiring. I am always struck by how they operate from a place of passion, heart, curiosity and spirituality. I am so thrilled to share our chat about their partnership, transition into parenthood, and how they navigated a pandemic that paused both their careers - and inspired a rebirth. Where they have ended up, is nothing less than incredible.  

    Abeille Gélinas is a sought after DJ, mother and goddess. Na'eem Adam is an entrepreneur on the cutting edge of where food, community and technology meet. This chat is so rich, generous and thoughtful, it makes me fly. They are lovers of life and their joy gets deep under your skin. Enjoy!

    Sarora Knots: Live Colourfully!

    Sarora Knots: Live Colourfully!

    I first discovered Sara who runs Sarora Knots while reading Simple Things Magazine. I was so drawn to her calm presence and glow, that I cut out her photo and added it to my inspiration board. She has that thing that makes you want to know more. Her eco-planters have been featured in Harper's Bazaar and House Beautiful. She recently held a pop-up shop at Anthropologie in Chelsea, London.
    I wanted to hear her story, and get some tips and tricks on how to run a successful small business. We talk travel, inspiration, sustainability, plants, and why creativity is so important for our mental health. I adore her!
