I need help car shopping?!

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? One of my friends who I met while traveling to Australia was visiting from Europe and I took her to a Blue Jays baseball game then met up with some friends for a night out dancing. On Saturday and Sunday was more easy going and relaxing. Now on to…

Travel Bucket List

Happy Travel Tuesdays! I could go on and on about how much I love to travel. As I age I’ve preferred to spent money on experiences versus materialistic items. Funny how I don’t look back twice on travelling costs but shelling out hundreds for shoes, not a chance! Maybe this will change if I become…

Purse Essentials

Most of us have items we like to keep with us when we leave home to run errands or meet friends. For some of us these are a few items and for others (mostly me) we carry way too many things with us. I typically have random things in my purse but in an effort…

10 Days of Meditation

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Friday was busy for me grabbing lunch with a friend before she leaves to Europe and then Summerlicious dinner with another friend downtown to Jump restaurant. Both of us gave our 3 course meal and drink a 5 star rating. Driving all over in the middle of the day…

Look away from the screen

Hours a day I spending looking at a screen. There are times when I’m texting or writing a message and want to complete my train of thought so I don’t look up from my phone when someone asks me something. I’ll respond and then realize I should look up because it’s rude not to. This…

Where are you from?

Happy Monday everyone! Writing this blog last night I was sitting on the balcony of our hotel room listening to a few people smashing in the pool below and live music happening in the village square. Over these last few days I’ve meet people from a few different cities and even a different country. Out…

Summer Bucket List

We have finally started to see some summer weather here and loving this heat. Here seeing temperatures in the mid 20s is about normal for summer, which is cool for some but welcome to Canada! For the last few summers I’ve created a bucket list to help generate ideas when I need to find something…

Meditation Challenge Update 

Happy Monday! Did you all have a great weekend? On Friday I wrapped up a contract position and am back on the hunt for a new job. This morning I did find it hard to wake up and get going but when one door closes another one opens. Keep telling myself it’s in my mindset,…

Treat Yourself

Happy Fit Fridays! Many of us had a short work week and my office started summer hours ending at 4:30 vs 5 pm. 30 minutes made a huge difference in the work day and I’ve loved enjoying the extra minutes of sunlight in the evenings. For today’s post I wanted to talk about how you treat…

Monday is here again?!

Happy Monday! We are on a long weekend celebrating Canada Day and I went away camping with some friends. When this post goes live I’ll probably still be sleeping in a tent listening to the birds chirping by a lake. One thing is for sure, I won’t be looking forward to leaving and going back…

Low Calorie Drinks

Happy Fit Friday! Only a few years ago did I start to learn about the effects of consuming sugary drinks. Does anyone else love sweet drinks? I have a massive sweet tooth and it carries over to all types of sweets. For drinks, I’ve switched to healthier alternatives and cut out ones high in artificial…

Ski Resorts in the Summer

Happy Travel Tuesday! Summer is here but you would think we’re in spring based on all of our rainy days. Fingers crossed this changes soon because after a cold winter most of us are ready for some sunny days outside. This year I did take advantage of trying to snowboard it’s a lot more difficult than I…
