Diary of a Dairy-Free Girl

Happy Monday! Starting my week off in Seattle and ending in LA so it’s going to be a JAM-PACKED week…be sure to check out my Insta Stories to follow along, ya?! I wanted to share something kind of different today, especially on a Monday, because it’s time to reset and get back on track. As you might know, I have been off dairy for over a year now but this past weekend I had a couple slip ups. FULL REGRET…ok…

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…

“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…

Feels with Florida Orange Juice

Ok you guys. Let’s get serious for a minute. I have been trying to stay consistently fit throughout the year but as we head in to spring I am noticing I am totally getting lazy with my workout goals. I’m a bit mad at myself because I was on such a solid regime and then things really went downhill after Bahamas and I just got super lazy. I don’t even have a reason why. Maybe it was seasonal, maybe it…

#3yeargoals – Final Thoughts

Happy Monday little ones! I swear I had such a relaxing weekend where I filled my time with cooking, long walks with the pup, a delicious vodka martini (extra dirty of course) or two and some volunteer work! It was the most productive weekend I’ve had in a while, in part to not having any major social commitments and also since I’m not returning from or traveling to the States. I honestly feel like I’m the most settled I’ve been…

fitspo with forever 21

Bra | Workout Pants I have been getting a ton of feedback on my body (luckily positive) and I am so thankful to each and every one of you for your comments! I wanted to share the few simple changes that I’ve made that have allowed me to actually make improvements in my body. To give context, after I ran my 15k and half marathon last year I was severely injured and I couldn’t continue running long distances…I could barely walk in…

Get Sprouted for #meatlessmonday

As a student of holistic nutrition, I am constantly learning about the benefits of probiotic cultured food for digestive health and balance. Our gut health is critical in supporting our mood, concentration and immune system. By choosing probiotic cultured foods, and fermented foods we are encouraging the beneficial bacteria within us. Some examples of fermented foods that are readily available to us are kimchi, sauerkraut, miso and kombucha. What I love about Sprouted is Sonya’s passion for probiotic cultured food is clear…

#My24Hrs

                    Today is February 29th which means it’s a once every four years, leap year! Beyond the fact that this day is so special to me (it is my monkey, Choco’s birthday), it’s also an added day that we get to do something a little extra, which I always try to commemorate when I can! So I’m proud to share that I’ve partnered with Microsoft Canada to spread the word about the #My24Hrs campaign. I’m delighted to share how Microsoft…
