Last Minute Lovebirds

As kids, Valentine's Day was always the best day of the year, because it meant free chocolate at school. It also meant you had a chance to tell your crush you liked them (which is something I never did, I was the msn-only kind of girlfriend #goodgirlsclub).... But as we get older, people start to… Continue reading Last Minute Lovebirds

Simple & Savoury

As a kid, I was never forced to eat the dreadful Brussel sprouts that were a common joke in sitcoms. At 23 years old, I tried them for the first time and to tell you the truth- I'm obsessed! My babe puts them in a pan on low-medium heat with olive/coconut oil, fries them then… Continue reading Simple & Savoury

I know that guac is extra

That's why I like it chunky! I used four avocados, mashed to desired consistency Then I added half cucumber, one whole tomato, one third red onion, all diced diced To add flavor, I used cayenne pepper, fresh garlic cloves, pepper, sea salt (ground) Normally, I use cilantro leaves (I used mint as a great alternative… Continue reading I know that guac is extra

Favorite Fall Finds

Fall is probably my favorite season when it comes to outfit possibilities. You can dress for cosy weather, but still play around with a bare leg. I'm wearing a tweed dress from Mango, lace up heels from Spring (my favorite spot to buy shoes, if you haven't noticed!) and a new addition that is quickly… Continue reading Favorite Fall Finds

The Ugly “C” Word

The word I'm thinking of is 6 letters long. What did you think I meant?! You got it- cardio. I know it's what we were all thinking! Don't get me wrong, I love being active and I do love working out. But no matter how bomb my playlist is, after about 5 minutes into running,… Continue reading The Ugly “C” Word

“the Carrie Diaries”

If you, like me, spent your young adulthood watching Sex and the City religiously, constantly torn on who Carrie should end up with (Team Aiden!.. For now), then you probably spent a great deal of time wishing you had big enough... *hair*, like her, to rock such bold statements. I'm not one for wearing gowns… Continue reading “the Carrie Diaries”

Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)

I'm snuggled up on my couch live streaming babe's game on my laptop (the laptop I should be doing homework on...), but so happy to finally be able to catch a game. We both put our jobs first, and I'm often working or in school when he has a game. So today I am beyond… Continue reading Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 2)

4 Ingredient Protein Pancake

Let me start by saying I'm not much of a baker. I love to cook, but when it comes to following a specific recipe, I usually opt for store-bought treats. Also, I'm gluten free. Have I not mentioned that yet? I thought it was the first thing I said. No? Hm. Weird. That's usually how… Continue reading 4 Ingredient Protein Pancake

DIY: Flowers Forever

Have I mentioned I'm a bit of a hopeless romantic? Well, if I haven't, the cats out of the bag! I'm a sucker for rom-coms, having doors opened for me and flowers for no reason. My boyfriend knows this and really knows how to melt my sappy, love struck heart. The other day, I received… Continue reading DIY: Flowers Forever
