I Am Wearing
The easy part of beginning a healthy lifestyle: working out, the hard part: proper nutrition. But have no fear because I am here, helping to guide you on a path to your healthiest self yet!
MY PANTRY STAPLES:
Garbanzo Beans – a great form of plant based protein, rich in fiber and helps to control blood sugar, these mighty beans are the perfect addition to your diet. I eat them almost everyday and find they are great addition to soups, salads, & even in baking!
Brown Rice – shock, gasp, horror: I eat carbs. And lots of them! The body needs carbohydrates in order to maintain proper functioning of the internal organs ( I will be doing a complete post on Carbohydrates in the future, so keep your eyes peeled! ). Brown rice is mostly carbohydrate with a little bit of protein and fat, it is also a good source of various B Vitamins, and the minerals calcium, potassium, magnesium and phosphorus.
Apples – my absolute favorite fruit! I eat at least one a day, sometimes two, before I workout in the morning! Studies have even shown that this little fruit can help in blood sugar control!
Potatoes – did you know that potatoes have protein? A small amount, yes, but it’s there! Plus a potato is a great source of Vitamin C, Potassium and Vitamin B6. I love to enjoy just a simple baked potato topped with hummus or an avocado, yes that might sound like a strange combination but I highly suggest you try it! SO GOOD!
Cashews – I love nuts/seeds as they are full of protein, fats and carbs that will keep you satiated and full of energy until your next meal. I prefer to eat mine just as an afternoon snack but they also make great additions to a salad, oatmeal or a smoothie bowl!
Avocados – I don’t think I have to explain this one #avocadoislyfe
Vegetables – carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, lettuce, green beans, snap peas, kale
Fruits – pineapple, watermelon, raspberries
Proteins – Eggs, Salmon, Haddock, Free Range & Organic Ground Chicken
What are some of your pantry staples? Let me know!

I am a firm believer in treat yo self, so when I finished my first semester of University the other week I decided it was time to buy these beautiful sneakers. I searched high and low but for the life of me I could not find those Blush Pink Adidas Gazelles in my size! So I decided to take the matters into my own hands and design my own Adidas Superstars with the customization feature on their website.
Below I have provided the link to the customization feature as well as a few similar styles I am totally in love with!

Good morning and happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Unfortunately it is raining here in Alberta, so I won’t be wearing my Suede Jacket any time soon ( I made that mistake once with a beautiful suede purse…it is now completely ruined! ) or my white sneakers for that matter ( gotta keep em looking fresh ). But I thought I would share with you all this outfit anyways as it is one of my favorites! I finally got my hands on a pair of Levi’s 501 jeans and I have been wearing them non stop! These are their new Skinny Fit and I find they look much better on me.
Lots of love,

Good morning guys and happy friday! I hope all is well! First off let me just say that I am so sorry for my very sporadic coming and goings on my blog and other social media channels. I decided a couple of weeks ago to lessen my postings as I was completing my first semester at university (happy to announce that I passed all of my courses with flying colors) but then I decided to take a complete break all together. I had been posting almost everyday for a year now and I was absolutely exhausted. A lot of time and energy goes into a single blog/Instagram post and I had completely worn myself out. I had no motivation or inspiration and I was finding it a chore to be creative and I was dreading logging onto Instagram everyday, so I decided to stop all social media and allow me to just be me.
During this time away from social media I reflected on myself and how I have evolved in the last year. I realized that I haven’t been genuine to myself and my style. I was trying to be like the other girls on Instagram in an effort to increase my likes/followers but what I found was actually the opposite. My followers and likes decreased, and with that my mood changed. I was sad, unmotivated and uninspired. I had lost my love for my blog and because of that it suffered. Taking time off was exactly what I needed, I uncluttered my wardrobe, realized what was most important to me and began to fall back in love with social media.
I realized that the numbers, don’t matter. That the amount of clothes I had didn’t matter. The only thing that matters is creating beautiful content that I am proud of. I was spending so much of my time scrolling through Instagram looking for inspiration that I ended up not putting enough effort into my own content. I was half-assing things and I felt ashamed of what I was putting out onto my social media. I started to doubt myself, my style and my ability to create content. I compared myself to others, saw what they were doing and tried to mimic it…and because of that I felt lost. I wasn’t being who I know I truly am, but that is all going to change now.
My Blog and Instagram will not be changing, it’s simply going back to how it once was. I want to promote health, wellness and fashion, the three things that are the most important to me and what I am most passionate about. I want to help guide you into a healthier lifestyle, and inspire you with my outfits and fashion. I want to have fun and be creative!
Thank you for following along on this journey, and for always being such a positive influence and motivation in my life.
With all my love,

I have never been one to wear a whole lot of jewelry, I am definitely more of a minimalist when it comes to that sort of stuff, but when I stumbled upon Jazaar Jewelry via Instagram I instantly fell in love. Simple, handmade necklaces, chokers, rings and bracelets that you can wear singly or layered paired perfectly with my style. I have been wearing them non stop ( see this post HERE & HERE for a few examples ) and have become completely obsessed with their entire collection.
I have listed 5 of my top favorite here:
Thank you Jaazar Jewelry for sending me these wonderful pieces!
