Summer Getaways in BC

July 27, 2016
Rainbow over Brandywine Falls hike in Whistler, Canada

Today’s post is very timely given I was just talking in yesterday’s post about how I’ve made a concerted effort to be more of a tourist in my own city! I know everyone’s slightly biased towards their own home town (or home province, country, etc) but I really and truly believe that beautiful British Columbia is one of if not the most naturally stunning places in the world. Whether I want to head north to wine/lake country and bask in the sun…

This summer I really wanted to focus on getting my back fully recovered (check out yesterday’s post for my full weekly fitness routine!), which means that as much as travelling is my biggest passion in life, I had to take a little break. The fact of the matter is travelling is really hard on any injury, but especially a low back injury. Sitting for hours (usually in awful plane or train seats) and lugging around things are both just about…

My Weekly Fitness Routine

July 25, 2016
Best core strengthening routines

Happy Monday! I couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the week by sharing something I’m so excited about for a multitude of reasons: my fitness routine! As you guys know from my road to recovery posts (you can catch up on all of them in my fitness section!), I got dealt with two injury blows over the past year: one back sprain last September that literally sent my body into shock, followed by another in January. As…

In Portland

I’ve been to Portland only twice but it’s quickly become one of my favourite places to get away for a quick weekend. Living in Vancouver, we’re pretty spoiled with beauty all around us in our province, but every now and then making the drive across the border (or the train ride, as we did with Amtrak!) is a worthy reminder that there’s so much to explore, see and do by visiting our neighbours to the south. While Seattle’s a bit…

Early Bird

July 18, 2016
Off the shoulder dress styling

 Happy Monday! I have to be honest – I’m not feeling my peppiest and most energized today despite having a pretty restful and relaxing weekend. Why the sudden depleted energy levels? Because, my friends, this lifelong night owl is finally making the full transition to becoming an early bird. I’ve been chipping away over the past few weeks, waking up earlier and earlier each day, but today was my first 6AM wake up call (which is probably nothing for most…

Your Guide to Mykonos

Mykonos Travel Guide - what to see and do in Mykonos, Greece

Happy Friday! We haven’t been having the most summery weather here in Vancouver (biking home in the rain yesterday was definitely not what I envisioned my July commutes to be like) but at the very least, our iffy weather has given me some extra fuel to plan my next travels! It’s also got me dreaming about sunshine, the best beaches I’ve ever been to and sun-bleached passageways in beautiful Mykonos, the last in my Greece posts. Read on to catch…
