Get Ready With Me – Episode #1

Ok guys, I did my first YouTube video for 2018! A quick Get Ready With Me (#GRWM) to show you what I do and use when getting ready AND to teach myself how to edit these damn videos. It honestly took my about five hours to get this situated and I think I need to graduate from iMovie to Adobe because iMovie was a serious pain and it crashed midway through my edit (thank god I saved the final video).…

Vital Proteins Orange Creamsicle Shake

I am actually obsessed with this smoothie. Been drinking it once per day before or after my workouts and I swear it has made a world of difference. If you didn’t catch it on my Instagram (@lexniko) the recipe is simple: Organic Orange Juice Almond Milk Ice Vital Proteins Vanilla & Coconut Water Collagen Peptides Blend everything together and enjoy! See. It really is so simple. I wanted to share a little more detail about the benefits of Collagen Peptides.…

Why I Moved

In the last three weeks the most common question I’ve been asked has easily been, “Why did you move?” I apologize for not answering your questions earlier via Instagram but I felt I needed to collect the long-winded version of my answer in a nice little blog post, so here we are. I was living in downtown Toronto with my sister. It was actually the best living situation a girl could ask for. I loved my apartment – seriously LOVED. I…

The Bachelor – Arie Episode 2 Recap

Let’s dive right in here people. I have said it before and I’ll probably say it every intro, this is going to be a good season. I am starting to understand why: Arie is here to play the game. If I noticed anything, I noticed just how adaptable he is to each of the ladies and how good he is at making them feel like the one. I can only assume this comes from years of practise being a grade A douche…

WTF is the Bachelor Winter Games

A lot of you have asked me today about the Bachelor Winter Games. The cast was announced today and a few peeps wrote me on Instagram so I figured I’d get my shit together and write you a quick intro to this four-episode sub-series to The Bachelor franchise. The show premieres on February 13th at 8 PM EST – just in time for Valentine’s Day duh – meaning that for four weeks our Mondays and Tuesdays will be dedicated to The Bachelor.…

Golden Globes 2018

Time. Is. Up. Honestly, last night’s Golden Globes were one of the most, if not the most inspiring and refreshing award shows I have ever seen. So many entertainment outlets were concerned with the #MeToo and #TimesUp movement shedding a sombre light on the event but in true female fashion, these did anything but. I genuinely felt as though the women (and men who support them) in that room finally felt confident, strong and motivated to speak their truth and…

Fast Five: 2018 Goals

So if you recall, I wrote a little letter to myself as a way to combat the anxiety I felt around the new year and not really knowing where I want to go. That my friends, is a lot of bite off and frankly right now it is more than I am ready to chew. So I gave myself a time out, but I also know I’m a psycho and I need to put my energy in to something which is…

Hashtag JanuArie is Here

You guys, The Bachelor has arrived and it kicked off in a h u g e way. To be as corny as my favorite show of the season, Arie Luyendyk Jr. is in the driver’s seat and while I have my opinions of him (kind of a d-bag, rumored womanizer and what’s with the make up?) I kind of had a feeling that Arie’s season was going to be incredible and if the first episode was any indication, we are in for a…

A Letter to Myself

I have to be honest to start the new year off right. I have been reading other people’s reflections and resolutions for 2018 and I feel a bit stuck by comparison. So I’ve decided to write this letter to myself. I want to remind myself of this moment of transition, so that I have something to look back at as the year goes on. Here we go: I am definitely the type of person who enjoys setting goals but this…

New Year’s Eve Ready

I cannot believe there is less than a week until 2018! Even though I am headed north for a mini ski vacay for NYE, I wanted to inspire those who are adding a little sparkle to their last Sunday of 2017 in today’s post. While I typically am terrible at recycling lewks – this is one I am willing to compromise on. I am literally O B S E S S E D with this dress and I think it is oh…
