Thanksgivin’ Lovin’

What a beautiful time of year! The leaves are changing, scarves and boots come out of your closet, and autumn flavours are out in full swing. Apple cinnamon muffins, peach cobblers, or pumpkin spice anything has my name all over it. Even though summer is over, everyone starts soaking up the holiday cheer starting with Thanksgiving,

Fall Cleanse

This week, and September in general, is all about removing toxins. Raise your hand if your summer was filled with sweets and treats, palm bays and beers, too much take out food, and late night eats?

So why did I decide now to complete one? Firstly, my instructor in my preventative nutrition class was talking about therapeutic diets

The Babe Cave 

I forgot how much fun it was to live with a girlfriend. 24/7 girl talk, wine and chocolate on the ready (don’t worry, we make sure we eat plenty of vegetables and green smoothies!), binge watching The Mindy Project without judgement, and our favorite thing as of late: boy talk. It reminds me that

I love February. Whether you’re spending this month celebrating your love for a special someone, or simply single like me, it’s a great reason to spoil yourself and pass it off as practicing “self-love”. First up, these gorgeous Tiffany’s glasses that not only give me butterflies everytime I put them on but also provide me
