hit the weights to shape up for the holidays

I realize it’s not even December yet, but I’ve already been prepping for the holidays. Yep, that’s right, our entire condo is decked out in cranberry, peppermint and balsam-scented candles, we have our mini Christmas tree assembled, and various other holiday decorations are gracing practically every surface. Of course, this is all my doing and … Continue reading

Happy Thursday, friends! The weekend is almost here. Okay, don’t hate me.. but… the weekend actually is here for me already. I’ve got myself a long weekend ahead of me and it’s going to be gloriously jam-packed with social activities and fun. The only issue is that I may have pink eye, which is kind … Continue reading

bubble girl + a smoothie discovery

Hahah I can’t help but laugh at the title of this blog post. It kind of sounds like a ridiculous children’s adventure book or movie. Often when I sit down to write a post, I have so many things I want to talk about that I have a hard time narrowing it down to just … Continue reading

*Sniffle, sniffle* As I write this, I am bundled up in approximately four layers of clothing + the most cuddly blanket in the world (who just happens to go by the name of “Lamby”).

summer 2013 {want} to-do list

This coming Friday marks the beginning of summer, though in my mind I’ve been pretending it’s been summer since June 1st. Sadly, the weather in Toronto has been so temperamental lately, I haven’t been able to partake in as many summer activities yet. This week is supposed to be glorious in terms of sunshine + … Continue reading

lazy dinners

Though this blog is all about food, fitness and healthy living, don’t go around thinking that I’m all fancy with my dinners every night. Though I’m known to love putting together a healthy, pretty-looking meal, I definitely have my fair share (ahem, read: LOTS) of nights where I’m just not in the mood to lift … Continue reading
