There is nothing I love more than a weekend getaway. This weekend I whisked myself away to one of my girlfriends' cabins about two hours away from home out in the middle of nowhere. We made brownies and peach mojitos, roasted marshmallows over a bonfire, and spent the day basking in the sun on the… Continue reading

Are you ‘stuck’?

Well, my least favorite time of the year is here yet again, and it's come faster than ever it feels like! It's time to say goodbye to Babe as he gets back to work, this year in France. Whenever Babe is home, I find it so hard to balance our time together, because my heart… Continue reading Are you ‘stuck’?

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!

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

Crunch time Cardio

I don't know what I dislike more: having a busy day and deciding to skip the gym, despite how much I wish I could go that day... OR going to the gym on a time crunch, only to leave feeling like I didn't use my time wisely enough. I'm a pretty 'thick' girl, so for… Continue reading Crunch time Cardio

Good morning, healthy body, mind and soul

I have one word for you:ย protein.ย  Whether you are young, old, big or small, chubby or thin:ย eat your protein.ย  I am not a breakfast eater. If I am to have breakfast, it's a slow, lazy meal that I take my time to get around to when I don't have a busy morning. I don't like… Continue reading Good morning, healthy body, mind and soul
