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

I asked, and she said yes! …x5!

Aside from marrying Stefan (obv) the thing I was most excited for about getting engaged was asking my bridesmaids! Friends are SO important to me, and I couldn’t wait to ask my chicks if they would stand beside me on my wedding day.

I personally have amazing girlfriends from camp, from community theater, and from a bunch of different friend groups at school. Choosing only five girls felt like a parent picking their favourite children. #drama.… View Post

We’re back with another life update, y’all!

I seriously can’t believe June is almost over. Summer is flying by! We’re heading to our friend’s cottage for the long weekend, and to another friend’s cottage the weekend after that, so at least there are still things to look forward to in the few months left of warm weather.… View Post

ICYMI, I was in Amsterdam earlier this month…I fell in love with the city! I had never been to the Netherlands before, and I can’t believe it took me this long to visit. I would move to Amsterdam in a heartbeat! The lifestyle is so different than what I’m used to, and I can totally get on board.… View Post
