My Everyday Vitamin Routine

I mean I’m not going to sit here and pretend I am a health guru or expert. Full disclosure: I AM NOT. Could I have been a doctor? Maybe. But my hands are so shaky I don’t think it would’ve worked out in the end. So no, I’m no medical professional and I’m not a nutritionist but lately, for health reasons, a ton of my research and time has gone in to discovering what vitamins and nutrients I should be…

Canada’s 150th with Amazon

We are headed in to the Long Weekend and I for one can’t wait to kick things off! I was feeling a little festive so I decided to what better way to get in the spirit than some red & white donuts. Canadians loveeee their donuts – I am not 100% sure but I feel like it’s debatable that they were invented in Canada…so let’s just stick with that fact for the purpose of this post HA! Getting prepped was…

“The Big O”

Ok ladies. Today’s post is truly for you. It’s not about fashion, food or beauty. It’s about real talk. And today we are getting real real. Because this conversation is the one that we all want to be having. And we’re probably having it in our own heads or behind closed doors with our girlfriends but for some reason we’re afraid to have it out loud. I know it’s taboo and before I allude to the topic any further, I’m ready to just…

little travels: st. barth’s part three

Ok so I saved the best for last because honestly the food and drinks in St. Barth’s was amazing. We were there for Krystle from Dine & Fash‘s bachelorette, so of course we want to spend our nights dancing with bevies in hand and enjoy her last hoorah! The nightlife in St. Barth’s was perfect and completely my kind of vibe. I loved that we were surrounded by people of all ages just looking to have a good time and…

leftover lobster spaghetti

For Father’s Day it’s our family tradition to have a giant Sunday feast with all the fixings. Asparagus, salad, mashed potatoes and the main event, LOBSTER. We love seafood in my house. It’s like a serious obsession. I think it’s partially because it’s so delicious but also because it’s so fun to eat. Nothing beats working for your food and it makes for great dinner conversation (ahem, and competition). So we treat Father’s Day as a big event and when…

Little Travels: St. Barth’s

I don’t even know where to begin. St. Barth’s was one of the most magical places I’ve had the pleasure of visiting. From the welcoming people to the incredible weather, it was pure magic. But we do have to start somewhere and so today I’ll be discussing getting there, how to prep and where to stay. Getting There. So you have to fly in to St. Maarten as a means of getting in to St. Barth’s. There are some pretty routine direct…

Dog Vision

Spoiler Alert: Choco is my right-hand man. Whether we’re going for a walk, hanging on a patio or traveling, he is pretty much always by my side. He experiences everything in my day-to-day and I can only imagine what it’s like to view the world through his eyes. The crazy thing is that now I actually can with Connected Pet Technology. “But wait Alex, what is Connected Pet Technology?” I’m glad you asked. In the simplest of terms, Connected Pet…

Fast Five | Instagram Feed

Ok so the most common comments and questions I get asked on Instagram are about filtering photos and organizing your feed. This is something I feel I have honestly struggled with so much. It’s seriously as though I have an Insta-identity crisis whenever I find a certain filter, three pics in a row or photo thread has poor engagement. Sounds crazy, I KNOW. But as a blogger who uses social feeds to ensure that I am maximizing reach, it is something that I genuinely…

Lately this has been your number one ask of me via Instagram so today I made a little video to take you through my skin care routine. It’s a long video since my routine is a bit of a process but with all the years of skin conditions I’ve endured, I’m thrilled to share what has finally worked for me and hope that all or some of these work for you too. I know the struggles of dealing with bad…
