How to Stay Healthy While Traveling

While most people are packing on the winter weight now that it’s getting colder, I’m sweating and busting my butt to stay bikini ready. We fly out to Asia in exactly 22 days where sun and beach await us! I’m on a good fitness plan at home but I know from experience it’s staying in shape while abroad that’s the […]

Settling For Less

I’m fresh off a great Thanksgiving long weekend! I ate myself into a food coma and spent lots of time with friends and family. Thanksgiving is meant to remind you to be thankful for what you have; to express gratitude every day and appreciating one’s blessings even if life may not seem perfect or whole. We have a tendency to chase newer, […]

Copenhagen: Top 10 Things to Do

Copenhagen was easy to fall in love with. It has a casual comfort about it, like that feeling you get when you’re walking down your favourite street and every corner feels familiar yet exciting at the same time. While Copenhagen no doubt has its flaws (see: ridiculously high cost of living) it’s the closest I’ve come to experiencing what a […]

Our Southeast Asia adventure begins in less than two months! Our flights and accommodations have been booked and now comes the fun part where we figure out what we want to do when we’re there.

11 Tips for Solo Travellers

I experienced my quarter life crisis when I was 22. I was working my first salaried job out of university and despite the perceived glamour of being a career woman, I was miserable. My job environment felt more like a dictatorship where I couldn’t eat food, send out an email, or leave my desk without my Anna Wintour-esque boss’ approval. […]

A Weekend in Halifax

A few weeks ago, my sister Melissa and I flew out to Halifax to scope out the scene of her future home. She’ll be officially moving there in September and will spend the next glorious years in a studio to obtain a Masters of Architecture at Dalhousie University. Neither of us have ever been out to the east coast and […]

10 Under $10 Beauty Products I Can’t Live Without

I do believe when it comes to your skin, less is more and the cost of your products is no exception. Beauty and skincare is one area where I don’t spend a lot of money on because I find the inexpensive products work just as well as the high end brands. I don’t really experiment much either. If it ain’t broke, don’t […]

Our Engagement Party

We hosted an engagement party for our family and friends a few weeks ago. It was a great time and with 65 people in attendance, it helped us get a sense of what to expect on the actual wedding day (on a smaller scale, of course!) Everything was running pretty smoothly in the weeks leading up to it but at […]

East Coast Lovin’

I’m in Halifax this week with my sister, Melissa! She was accepted to Dalhousie for their Masters of Architecture program and will be starting this September. We’ve never been to Halifax (or the east coast for that matter) so we’re PUMPED to get out there and stuff our faces with lobster. I also realized this morning that this will be […]
