The Art of Being Fabulous offers tips for people to create, grow and maintain a positive self-image, and to meet their health, wellness and personal goals. Self-doubt and a lack of self-worth affect many people regardless of age, race, religion, gender, or socio-economic status; whether it happens once in their life, or daily.
Samantha Wharton started the blog to show her niece that there was more to life than just being like celebrities, and to forge her own path when she grew up. She could be her version of fabulous in whatever form that took.
Samantha started The Art of Being Fabulous in 2015. She spends her downtime at the gym, hanging out with friends and family, teaching her niece how to do the robot, pretending to be a chef and becoming a Prosecco expert.

I’m not embarrassed to admit loving: Murder She Wrote, Futurama, Scooby Doo, video games, animal print, sarcasm, anything sparkly, and the movies The Other Guys, Balls of Fury and Dodgeball
If I could meet one person: Judy Blume, she inspired me to write and I was the head of the Toronto chapter of her fan club 🙂

Favorite quote: Always be yourself, express yourself, have faith in yourself, do not go out and look for a successful personality and duplicate it. Bruce Lee
I’m not embarrassed to admit: I will play guitar for anyone that will listen even though I’m terrible! I binge-watch horror movies going into Halloween.
If I could meet one person: It would have been Nelson Mendela to talk to him about his strength and determination.

Favorite quote: Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning . Albert Einstein
I’m not embarrassed to admit: I have a terrible memory when it comes to remembering names. This includes celebrities and athletes. However, I can recognize a face from a mile away!
If I could meet one person: Steve Jobs. Unfortunately this would be impossible, but I would travel back five years and meet with him. He is the most innovative, forward thinking entrepreneur that comes to mind. I always strive to meet with people who strive to make change, advance themselves and think outside the box. He is an innovator and holds a very impressive track record for success. He held a commencement speech in 2005 at Stanford, and I’ll never forget his powerful and inspirational words.

Our mascot – Scooby Doo
Scooby Doo brings good luck and joy to the team – well in most of the team’s defense, he was there from the beginning so they had little choice!
