Things I Learned from Being Loved

I think it's fair to say that the majority of us have had the experience of being in a bad relationship or being the one who "cares too much", whether while dating a person or simply just being in a position where you like someone and they don't like you back, especially in the casual… Continue reading Things I Learned from Being Loved

Sun-Kissed Suggestions

I really like those books that describe a pale woman's skin with words like "porcelain" or "alabaster" or any other artistic sounding word because I personally am used to hearing things like "Casper" or "pasty" and really who has ever heard of a sexy ghost? Now I am not saying that there's anything wrong with… Continue reading Sun-Kissed Suggestions

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

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

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)

Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 1)

*disclaimer: I am not a wife. Or a fiancΓ©. My boyfriend plays in the EBEL in Europe. I sat in the bleachers, slightly flushed because I have a habit of dressing for icy temperatures. Basketball is not exactly my cup of tea, but spending a few hours catching up with good friends.. Well that's a… Continue reading Tales of a Hockey Wife (pt. 1)

REVIEW: salute to swimsuit sites

I know that summer is ending, but don't be sad! The silver lining is that bathing suits often go on sale at the end of season, so you can prepare for a quick winter vacay or next year's summer months! If you've noticed swimsuit trends online lately, you'll see that the classic itsy bitsy teenie… Continue reading REVIEW: salute to swimsuit sites

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

Comfy Street StyleΒ 

Overdressed > underdressed.  Always.  My friends and family may give me a hard time, even calling me a diva at times, but what can I say; I'd rather be the best dressed at a party than ever under-dressed. Even when I'm out with the boyfriend for an ice cream, I like to be done up.… Continue reading Comfy Street StyleΒ 

Monday Mouthful

Spinach Cons: shrinks when cooked Pros: shrinks when cooked! Okay... So there are a lot more positives towards spinach, one of the leafy greens along with kale, that is considered a superfood. Spinach is low in: calories carbs fats Spinach is high in: Vitamin A (good for eyes, teeth, skin, tissue) Vitamin C (an antioxidant… Continue reading Monday Mouthful
