Soooo I’ll admit, I was a skeptic at first – a HUGE skeptic. I just didn’t really understand the phenomenon of meditation and to be honest, I don’t think I was ready to try to understand it… + Isn’t that just some hippy-dippy thing that people pretend to do and pretend that they’re invested in just to sound cool? + How on earth does someone actually just STOP and do nothing except sit and be with themselves for an extended period of time? + How do you just quit social media, stop checking in, disconnect and be with you & only you? + How do you get your brain to turn off, shut down, be quiet? + What do you even do? Those were my thoughts on meditation before I started trying it for myself.…

Hi babes! I feel like I’ve been on break for forever now and really, it only just began today. We had so many snow days back-to-back… like Friday the 10th was the first one and the only days that school was open last week were Wednesday and Friday. Friday didn’t end up actually being a school day ( for me anyway ). A 90’s club opened on Thursday night and Alexah & I went and let’s just say it was a night I will never remember, so school was not happening the next day. We had fully intended on going, but it just didn’t happen. This week is my ‘spring’ break even though there is really nothing spring about life around here currently. The smallest snowbanks are like 3 feet tall and the path next to…

OMG hi. Currently dying – as in: arms are shaking, legs are vibrating, heart rate is UP and I’m chugging back a green smoothie with protein and downing all of the water because I just completed week 2, day 1 of Kayla Itsines’ BBG… I started last week on week 1 and I’m addicted to this workout plan. I mean seriously, truly, absolutely 100% hooked on it. A while ago, I used to use Tone It Up’s workouts and don’t get me wrong – I still love them! Karena and Katrina are such uplifting spirits, their workouts are challenging and fun, but I just felt like I needed a change. I’ve been in a workout rut for a whiiiiile, like way too long. I recently became totally invested in living a more healthy and active lifestyle,…

Hi! I am 110% obsessed with blogging. I don’t know if you can tell or not, but I am l o v i n g it. There’s something so incredibly invigorating and therapeutic about working on a post and finally, finallllly clicking ‘publish’… I love being able to share my thoughts, interests and feelings here & I don’t ever want to stop. I’ve said it a million times ( basically every post so far this year ) but I am determined to make 2017 THE year and I really feel as though I am doing just that. I want to dedicate more time to just simply sitting and writing. I love the photography aspect about blogging, but I am even more into the content-creating, pouring out my heart part lately – which is why the…

Hi babes. I’ve decided that today is going to be a blogging day all day long. Since the whole province is shut down, no seriously – even the buses are pulled from the road and the Casino is shut down! – there’s nothing to take up my attention, so I can focus completely on the blog. They say we’re in for 45cm of snow over the next ~24 hours and the wind is blowing at like 75km/hr. It’s crazy out there! With Valentine’s Day coming up, it seemed like the perfect time to talk about falling in love with your life. On Friday, I shared a few of my self-love and self-care tips. And while self-care and self-love are important, loving your life is SO key too. If you’re not ridiculously happy with your life, how…
