Alex and me on our wedding day

Greatest Accomplishment of 2017

The year started off as a challenge, but 2017 ended up being one of the best years of my life! For the first half of the year, I was struggling to manage my corporate law practice, blogging, and planning my wedding. However, I took a huge risk and leap of faith when I decided to quit my job in order to pursue what I’m passionate about on a full-time basis. The timing of me leaving law couldn’t have been better, and my decision to blog full-time has since paid off. But above my greatest accomplishment professionally, my greatest accomplishment for 2017…

Style Post – From Hibernation to Hypothermia

The last 5 days have been a total and complete blur. Who else feels the same? From all the lazing around in sweats and binge TV watching to excessive eating, I’ve had to ask what day of the week and year it is on several occasions (thank goodness for our Google home!). The days in between Christmas and New Year’s are always kind of strange for me – especially since starting to blog. The best way to describe it is like being in limbo. I’m ‘on vacation’, yet not quite on vacation. Truthfully, as much as I’d love to give…

Winter Spiced Red Lentil, Root Vegetable and Coconut Soup

With winter finally rearing its ugly head and the holiday rush being done in less than a week, full on hibernation mode will be ensuing very soon! I can picture it now: me, swaddled tightly in a blanket, like a newborn, on my couch with my husband watching Netflix, without a care in the world. Ahhhh, it will be so sweet! And what better comfort food to enjoy while so doing? Well, a warm, hearty homemade soup immediately comes to mind! A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a holiday dinner with The Feed Feed and Vitamix,…

How Dyson Helped us Live Happily Ever After

Fun fact: if Alex and I didn’t live together, I’d probably be a minimalist. Kinda hard to believe coming from a blogger, when it seems from my Instagram that I’m constantly receiving blogger mail. But, trust me when I tell you, I simply cannot stand clutter…and even worse, DUST! I make it a point to purge my closet quarterly, give away/donate products I receive that I don’t use, and there’s not a day that goes by where I’m not picking up at least one strand of hair from the ground somewhere. I am a neat freak, period. Bless his heart,…

Savoury Mexican Popcorn

One of the best parts about the holidays is gathering around with family to watch the Christmas classics. My absolute favourite movie of all time is A Christmas Story, and Christmas doesn’t feel the same each year, unless I’ve watched it at least once. And since movies and snacks pretty much go hand in hand, I decided to create a new snack recipe for the blog, for my family and me to enjoy over the holidays. It’s my own twist on a classic snack: popcorn, using Orville Redenbacher’s microwave popcorn. If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I…

How to Stay Active While on Vacation

If you’re anything like me, your idea of staying active while on vacation is walking to the buffet or pool bar! If I go on a resort vacation, the whole idea is to relax and enjoy paradise. It’s to relish in the bounty of food and drink that I wouldn’t otherwise have on a daily basis back home, like huevos rancheros for breakfast, Blue Hawaiians and Piña Coladas every hour, 24-hour room service…you get the idea. I’m also the type of person who likes to try everything on the menu. So, if there is basically unlimited food available at my…

Holiday Gift Guide with Upper Canada

Back from yet another amazing trip to Mexico and jumping right back into the holiday preparations! Christmas is in less than two weeks, so I’ve got an easy holiday gift guide to share with you. Before we left for our vacation (travel guide coming soon!), we took a trip to Upper Canada to shop at some of my favourite retailers. Every year, I set out with the best intentions to get my Christmas shopping done early. But, I always seem to end up at the mall on December 23rd or 24th running around and spinning my wheels on what last-minute…

Style Post – Changing Gears

Hey guys! Really wanted to get a quick style post up on the blog this week, before I take off on my next adventure! In terms of a life update, if you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that I got back from Mexico City exactly 1 week ago, and I’m about to embark on yet another trip to sunny Meh-Hee-Co tomorrow!!!
