Tupperware Lunch Recap

Happy Friday! We have made it to the end of another work week and man am I ready for a long weekend. In Canada we celebrate Thanksgiving and I’m visiting family in the country. Usually someone in my family does the drive but this is the first time I’ll be doing it. We’ll see how…

Girls Night – Potluck Style

Happy Friday Beauties! I’m one of those people who are very excited for weekends and seeing friends! Usually I have a social gathering or two planned but the last two weekend were spontaneous.

Crack Slaw

Happy Friday! This week started out slow then picked up as I started a new job. Adjusting back to work was a slight challenge but I am really enjoying it thus far. When I was visiting my Aunt, who loves to cook, she introduced me to a new recipe “Crack Slaw”.  Even based on the…

Foam Roller Exercises

Growing up dancing, your muscles are sore majority of the time thanks to intense training. Once I began working out more I discussed the benefits of foam rolling to aid in muscle recovery, injury prevention, and increases blood flow. Personal preference is to foam roll after I workout for any muscles which are tight and…

Hiking Outfit

Summer is coming to an end, however there are still plenty of opportunities to explore outdoors and go hiking. A key to hiking is wearing comfortable clothing and walking shoes for your adventures. Fall can be a nicer time to hike as its cooler out and won’t be as hot for your body. One of…

Orzo Salad

Happy Friday! In summer it’s nice to spend as much time outside and away from a hot stove as possible. At a family party a few years ago one of my cousins made an Orzo Salad and I couldn’t get enough of it. Luckily for us she sent me the recipe by Giada De Laurentiis and…

Staying on Track While Eating Out

Hi everyone! I’m starting to be more adventurous when I’m out to eat trying foods and flavours I typically wouldn’t ever of thought to pair together. Like most things sometimes its a hit and others an absolute miss. Luckily it was a complete success when we went as a family to Oliver & Bonacini in…

My Flying Confession

Hi everyone! Welcome back to travel Tuesdays. Today I have a confession to make…before my flights I stretch my muscles. As silly as it looks I’ve even done lunges and squats on the plane at 37,0000 feet in the air. Especially on long flights it’s important to stretch your muscles and allow blood to circulate….

What’s in my gym bag? 

Happy Fit Friday! Since I’m on a mini break between contracts I’ve expected myself there to drop any excuses and exercise 5 to 6 days a week. Well truthfully it’s ranged between 3 to 5 times a week, far from my intentions. By I’ve also tried to compensate by eating smaller portions and selecting ‘healthier’…
