So. Today has completely wiped me out. It really doesn’t help that the cramps from hell have hit, I got a flu shot last night and literally cannot lift my arm past like my bellybutton ( it hurts so bad ) and we’re getting home renos done and they’re so f’in loud. Like loud loud… taking off a brick chimney is NO JOKE. But all that whining aside, I think the overall cause of my emotional drain is school. School this year is all types of weird. During my undergrad degree, it was all fun & games. Seriously. I enjoyed going to school ( I KNOW… who enjoys school? But seriously, all my friends were there, there was comfy chairs, good study spaces, GF food, a nice up-to-date gym, & tons more. That place felt like…

Hi guys! Just a quick post today… honestly, time today got away from me and before I knew it, I was all curled up in bed & was like OMG Blogtober. So here I am. Late + quick post… But it’s a questionnaire about fall, so forgive me. Please. + Favourite thing about fall: The weather, the pumpkins, the colours and driving around, looking at the gorgeous leaves. Seriously, road trips in the fall are the BEST. + Favourite fall/Halloween movie: Does Bewitched count? + Fashion trend you’re loving for fall: OTK boots, turtlenecks/mocknecks and the super neutral / grey / blush pink tones that are popping up EVERYWHERE. + Favourite fall drink: Pumpkin spice lattes! + What is fall weather like where you live: Crisp, cool, foggy a lot of the time and WINDY…

Hello and happy Friday! Yesterday marked my 1-year blogging anniversary… I cannot believe that I forgot about it / that I’ve had my bloggy for THIS LONG. I feel as though it will be a work in progress for quite some time now, but I am loving every single minute of it! It’s been seriously quiteeeee some time since I posted The Friday Five so I thought it was time to bring it back again. I have been LOVING fall lately, as you probably already know… so it’s only fitting that this Friday Five post be totally fall-themed. There’s so many things that I love about fall, so let’s get right to it. __________________________________ five fall closet staples: In the fall, I like to be cozy, comfortable and warm. There’s absolutely NOTHING that I dislike more than…

Happy Thanksgiving! Am I the only one who is still confused after 23 years of living in Canada as to what day is ACTUALLY Thanksgiving? Is it Sunday? Monday? Both? Who knows… It doesn’t really matter what day it is because this whole weekend reminds me time & time again just how lucky I am to live the life that I do. These are just ten of the thousands of things that I am grateful for: + My family & their constant support, commitment, and love. Without them, I really don’t know where I’d be today. They are the most involved, committed and caring people that there ever could be – and to be honest, sometimes I take that for granted and get annoyed by it, but at the end of the day, I need them…

01 | What I’m eating this week: This week has been a lot of salads, apples, chicken and smoothies. Last week I did the Wheat Belly 10-Day Grain Detox. It was full of super delicious foods & I may or may not still be eating a ton of the recipes this week just for fun. 02 | What I’m reminiscing about: Last fall. I really was in my damn element last fall! I was only in two classes and I wasn’t working a ton, so I had time to do all kinds of fun fall baking, cooking and activities & I loved it! This fall is a little more jam-packed with school and work, but I’m trying to fit in time to do all of the fun things I want to do. Also for some…
