sick {not the good kind}

Well, the weekend started out on a fabulous note. Friday night was spent celebrating the start of the long weekend at Friday Night Lights at the ROM, which is basically a party inside a museum. Think ‘Night at the Museum’ a la Ben Stiler, but slightly more cool. After a few hours of drinks + … Continue reading

12-minute, do-anywhere power circuit workout

Hey kiddos! Happy Hump Day :) It started to feel like spring again here in Toronto (after a teaser of summer last week and then harsh winter conditions over the past few days) and I’m all for it! I came across this hilarious (and true) infograph today that perfectly sums up the seasons as of … Continue reading

beach-ready arms + abs

GRRR. I hate crowds. I know, I know – who doesn’t, right? But when you’re on your way to do something that should take, oh, maybe 30 minutes and it ends up taking 2.5 hours, you get yourself an angry Ashley hahah.

Tonight is kinda like my Friday night. I don’t have to work tomorrow (because of my work’s awesome fortnight Friday schedule), so I’m totally in weekend mood. I came home from work tonight completely HYPED on the weekend feeling. I think I secretly love having no plans on Fridays; it allows for decompressing after a … Continue reading

the best soup you’ll ever have

the best soup you’ll ever have

Yes, I realize that’s a bit of an aggressive statement; however, I’m standing by it. I made this soup about a week ago and still think of how amazing it was. It’s perfectly tasty, perfect for a chilly winter’s eve, super healthy + easy to make. A winning combo if you ask me ;) Now … Continue reading

a fresh start

a fresh start

Okay, so maybe I got a little over-zealous when I said I was going to “be back” about a month ago. As I admittedly secretly-maybe-kinda thought in the back of my head would happen, the holidays did get the best of me (in a good way!) and there was absolutely no time to put energy … Continue reading

hayyy there! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I hope none of you were worried. Just to confirm, I am still alive and well.. just SUPER busy. I think things are going to start toning down a bit now, though. Wait.. does that even make sense? We’re getting into the holiday season. Hmmm… Anyway, school … Continue reading

butter chicken pizza + an apology

Good evening, dear readers! It’s been a while! I need to tell you that I’ve been SUPER busy lately, which is why the blog hasn’t been receiving much attention as of late. Lots of exciting things are going on at work, so I’ve been doing the classic wake up-eat-go to work-get home-workout-eat-sleep cycle & haven’t … Continue reading
