January 19, 2017
How to build a mindful morning routine

I’m so so so excited to share the first in many videos coming your way! I actually love shooting and editing videos but they are pretty time-consuming so I wanted to wait until I was able to strategize properly and really tackle video production. I’m so delighted to say I have tons of great videos now coming your way, from health focused ones like this morning routine to style to travel, so make sure you’re subscribed to my YouTube channel! But for…

Winter Transitions

January 18, 2017
Best winter to spring transition piece in a camel wool coat, leather leggings, leopard cross body bag, statement vest and wool fedora

 I know spring feels like it’s ages away, but personally, I feel like time has been flying by so far this year (isn’t it always, though?) – I mean, we’re already more than halfway through January! This is totally dependent on where you are in the world but here in Vancouver, come February the temperature definitely starts rising a touch and that glimmer of hope (aka spring!) is just around the corner. I’m kicking off a little series (culminating in…

Simple winter outfit idea in Aritzia grey wool coat, White + Warren cashmere coatigan, White + Warren cashmere travel wrap, Express beanie, Frye Chelsea ankle boots, Mavi skinny jeans styled by To Vogue or Bust

 Happy Monday! I just got back from the loveliest weekend visit to Victoria, where Matt and I started dating all these years ago while at UVic. It was really the exact break I needed – I didn’t have the start to the year that I anticipated, what with getting taken out with this brutal flu virus (wash your hands and take care of yourself, guys!), but now that I’ve unintentionally spent the first two weeks of 2017 on the mend and…

7 Tips to Drink More Water

January 13, 2017
How to drink more water every day with Brita filters

“Drink more water” is often scribbled in as an afterthought when writing out wellness resolutions or intentions. It’s not always the most obvious health mission to tackle when “lose 20 pounds” or “run a marathon” are so much more audacious and exciting to jot down. The thing is, water is really and truly the foundation of all health—there’s a reason why it’s our most essential need. It ensures we can achieve our fitness goals and recover after a hard workout,…

What to do in Rome Italy: where to find the best Colosseum tickets, the best view of the Colosseum and what to pack for Italy in October

 Ciao bella! I wanted to take the holidays to really focus on getting my favourite holiday tips and inspo out (partially because I’m such a holidays nut it’s all I want to write about, and partially because I feel like most everyone else is most focused on that too), and consequently took a little hiatus on my Italy adventures but buckle up because whether you’re planning  trip there or just dreaming of one in the future, I’ve got some serious…

Easing In

Tips on wearing a dress in the winter styled by To Vogue or Bust in an Aritzia camel wool coat, White and Warren cashmere dress, White and Warren cashmere travel wrap, Frye ankle boots, Express beanie hat and Celine Caty sunglasses

 I’m taking this week to slowly kind of ease myself back into regular life – after being really sick I’m usually so eager to throw myself back into life that I end up maybe taking on a touch too much before I should, so trying to really be conscious of that this time around! The easiest way to just slowly get back into the swing of things though is to just pull myself together, exchanging my uniform of PJ’s for…
