Happy Friday!

Can you believe it’s already Labour Day weekend? We’re celebrating Stefan’s birthday this weekend (Happy Birthday love!!!) and will do our best to spend time outside before fall officially hits. Because once September kicks in, it’s time for my most used phrase…

“I can’t. I’m busy.”

Am I the only one who overbooks themselves x1000? On top of my 9-5 (which is really so much more), I have so little time to fit so much in. My blog; rehearsals; exercise; cleaning; voice lessons; tap class; wedding planning; dinner with friends; date night with Stef; alone time; the list goes on and on!… View Post

Guys! FALL IS PRACTICALLY HERE. I’m wearing jeans today and am freezing my butt off. Where did summer go?!

Now that my long awaited weekend trip to Chicago is over, it really feels like summer has come to a close…it’s a bummer, but looking back, I’ve had a blast! One of my favourite parts of blogging and social media is the act of recording memories. I can scroll back to my posts from the past few months and reminisce on the experiences I’ve had (and remind myself that I did in fact have a fun summer, despite the seemingly constant rain & clouds).… View Post

A few weeks ago, the most blessed day occurred.

GLOSSIER STARTED SHIPPING TO CANADA.

I had been waiting for this moment for FAR too long. I was taunted by bloggers, YouTubers, and American friends alike. I was resigned to the fact that this magical brand would never be available to me, a simple Canadian makeup and skincare lover.

All jokes aside, I was SO stoked to see that Glossier made its way to the great white north! There were products that I had always wanted to try – face masks and Boy Brow in particular – and newer additions that I couldn’t help but add to my cart.… View Post

Happy Wednesday!

After the Monday-est Tuesday there ever was, I’m feeling more like a human today. I have such a love-hate relationship with long weekends! I spent my extra day cleaning our condo from top to bottom. I’m exhausted, but our place looks incredible! Self high five.

It’s freaking me out that it’s already Back to School season…where has summer gone?? Even though my work life is entering fall, my personal life is still very much in summer. August is far from over, let’s make the most of it!

As I mentioned in last week’s post, there are some super cool hidden gems in and around Toronto…all it takes to find them is a little exploring. I’m rounding up 5 places you should visit near Toronto in August. There’s still 4 weekends left before real life kicks back in – let me know if you love these places as much as I do!… View Post

Oh hey August, didn’t see ya there.

It’s FINALLY starting to feel like summer, thank god. On our last drive up to the cottage, I was saying to Stefan that it didn’t feel right to be driving up north; it hadn’t felt like summer yet! Now that the temperatures are up and the rain has slowed down (knock on wood…) I’m finally digging into my grab bag of summer activities and trying to get it all done before winter rears its ugly head.… View Post

After two weekends in a row of straight up excess, I’m happy to be back to my usual routine. By no means am I a health nut…I’m actually pretty bad at maintaining a healthy lifestyle (microwave popcorn will forever be my weakness). But I do have some minor yet annoying health issues – asthma and allergies at the forefront. Lately I’ve been making small efforts to improve my routine and see how it affects my overall health, and these are the 4 things that have stuck. I’ll be kicking it up a notch this fall to stay in tip top shape for a play I’ve been cast in…I’ll check back in a few months with how I’m feeling!… View Post
