About Me

Hi, I’m Aleksandra – a Gen Y communications professional living and working here in busy, bustling Toronto. Those that know me would call me a communications and digital media junkie in heels.

I’m a lover of technology, fitness, organization and décor. Yup – my computer’s bookmarks file is as eclectic as they get. Although I can frankenstein PC’s together, I prefer my MacBook but make no mistake I am nobody’s fangirl! Apparently I also make up verbs (like frankensteining – the art of putting together random pieces to kinda make a whole). I’ve recently discovered I am addicted to organizing my apps – I have a folder on my iPhone purely dedicated to all the photography apps I use (yes it’s sad, no I don’t care). Passionate about social media, my iPhone is always attached to my hip and I suffer from phantom vibrations often…maybe even now.

I love to curate content – I pin and stumble upon things I find fascinating. I facebook my thoughts, flickr my photos, and blip my tunes. My experience is linked in while my life is both tweeted and blogged. I love bringing people together and sparking insightful conversations so you’ll find me connected 365/24/7.

Come join me as I navigate through social media, technology and life.

This is my blog, and these are my musings.

10 things you need to know about me:

  1. I am a communications junkie – without a connection to the Internet and my cell phone by my side I feel so naked I can’t function. That’s normal, right?
  2. I believe that reading is the key to intelligent conversation.  So please read all the (damn) time.
  3. I’m a music lover. As a classically trained pianist I’m a bit of an audiophile. My taste is as eclectic as they come and sometimes I need to edit my iTunes collection when people come over because it’s just that random.
  4. I have this soft spot for animals and it’s |———————— this ————————| big.
  5. I’m a gym-bunny and have a passion for fitness and nutrition.  You’ll find many a magazine/book on my bookshelf and dozens of websites bookmarked in my browser.
  6. I’ve got this thing for organization.  My notes in university were colour-coded because it helped me organize information.  Fast forward to today: I have collections of inspiring design pictures in my Evernote – most of them are of colour-coordinated bookshelves, closets, and desks.
  7. I may come in a compact package but I am a whirlwind of energy!
  8. Although I love to cook, baking is my forte. Ask me about my killer cheesecake recipes.
  9. A lot of what I say is dripping with sarcasm so try not to take me *too* seriously.
  10. I try to live by the adage of “Inspire to be yourself”.

  1. Hi Aleksandra,

    My name is Diane and I work for Matchstick Inc, a word of mouth marketing agency in Toronto. After reading a few posts on your blog I thought you would be very interested in attending an event for The Macallan Scotch-Whisky.

    We are looking for online publishers from the Greater Toronto Area that would be interested in attending one of a series of exclusive scotch tasting events from The Macallan being held November 23rd and 24th at 99 Sudbury street. If you’re a fan of scotch-whisky then you will want to check out the event because it will feature several expressions of single malts as well as a tasting tutorial from The Macallan brand ambassador.

    If you’re interested in attending this event please let me know and I can give more details.

    Thanks and keep up the great blogging

    -Diane
