The Perfect Sunday ft. Merchant Sons

@christianconfidential@christianconfidentialSince I started Christian Confidential (which seems like forever ago), my life has changed in so many ways. I’ve been very fortunate to have been able to work on some really cool projects, travel to places that I’ve only dreamed of and build some really great friendships along the way. That being said, when you’re running your own business it’s very easy to get caught up in all of the day-to-day tasks that you never really get a chance to ‘clock out’ from work. Over time, I’ve learned that this type of living is not sustainable and sooner than later you’ll end up burning out. It’s a tricky balance to try and grasp, especially if you’re a control freak (ahem meeee) and want to be involved in everything!

 Three years ago, I spent a few months abroad living in Paris and really took a liking to their ‘way of living’. My favourite day of the week out there always happened to be Sunday. The energy of the city was different, there was a very ‘laid back’, ‘do things on your own time’ type of vibe that I loved. Since being back in Toronto, I’ve attempted to integrate that same ‘way of living’ as much as I can into my own life. Sunday is the one day for me, where I can wake up late (guilt-free) and put no real pressure on myself to complete things.

My friends over at Merchant Sons, a new home decor retailer based out of Toronto, Canada asked me to describe what the ‘perfect Sunday‘ looks like to me and instead of just telling them, I decided to take them along with me (and you guys, of course).

@christianconfidential@christianconfidentialLike I mentioned earlier, on Sunday I do as little or as much as I want. I may stay in bed until 11:00am and watch the latest release on Netflix (Chewing Gum, anyone?) or flip through magazines. I may go to the gym or I may go for a run through the city. I might meet up with the boys and grab brunch or an early dinner, or I might go catch a movie on my own.

For me, Sunday’s are about things being easy, which is also what I love about Merchant Sons. They create practical things that we all use on a regular basis with a mantra in mind of making life easier. Whether it’s cozy bedding sets, scented candles, blankets or pillows they’re all made to look great, provide comfort and support your lifestyle!

In collaboration with Merchant Sons, my team and I put together a little video + photos, giving you guys a glimpse into what a typical Sunday can look like for me. The main message that I want you guys to take away from this post is to always make time for yourself. As important as it is to work hard to achieve and attain the things that you want it’s just as important to recharge, reflect and relax.

New Year // Same Vibe


christian thompson | christian confidentialHi bb’s – I hope that 2017 is off to a great start for ya! It’s crazy to me how time just keeps flying by, I can barely keep up haha! I promised myself that this year, I’m going to continue to push boundaries in all areas of my life especially the blog. I have this rule that I placed on myself that doesn’t allow me to do the same thing that I did last year unless it’s done on a bigger scale. That being said, this year will be no exception, I really want to do dope shit and challenge myself to continuously grow creatively. I’ve got a few tricks up my sleeve that I’m excited and nervous to share with you guys within the upcoming months, so be patient with me.

Also, I wanna just say a huge thank you to you all for continuing to stick by me! Nowadays EVERYONE is an influencer or blogger or whatever you wanna call me, and I hope that you guys know that I appreciate each and every one of you – let’s live out our dreams this year!

This past weekend I got the chance to have some much needed fun and do something that I’ve never done before… attend a music festival. I know, isn’t it crazy that I’ve never been to one before? My friends over at Express extended the invitation to attend VELD Music Festival and without hesitation I was up for giving it a try and I’m glad that I did! I brought my friends Shayna and Allison to experience it with me and we had so much fun – highlights Steve Aoki & Post Malone! Keep scrolling to see some more pics and find out what I decided to wear!

Note To Self: Don’t Settle
