• Why I Love Where I Live

    Recently, I was asked to share what ‘a day in the life of’, well, ‘ME’ looks like. A day in the life of a 30-something-woman (and mother of 2) living on the North Shore.  It was an opportunity I jumped at, because I thought it would be a lot of fun. What I didn’t realize...
  • Taking care of your health is always in style

    I have a confession! It had been YEARS (like, 7) since I last had my eyes checked. That is way too long to go without checking something, especially when I work so hard to take care of my body. The crazy thing is that I know I should be wearing glasses. I also know that my...
  • Heart-Shaped Banana Buckwheat Pancakes

    This antioxidant-rich breakfast is heart-healthy, nutrient-packed, gluten-free and full of beneficial fibre!

  • 30 days, 30 rides, 30 lessons learned

    If you follow me on Instagram, you likely caught wind of the fact that I recently accepted and COMPLETED a 30-day spin challenge at Spin Society.  This was a really big deal for me because I have never committed to something physically (and mentally) like this spin challenge and the fact that I followed through...
  • The challenges of working from home & how to overcome them

    Working from home is a pipe-dream for many.  Those who work in an office setting often fantasize about what it would be like to roll out of bed, open their laptop and ‘be at work’. The reality is that working from home can actually prove to be challenging in more than one way.  I, self-admittedly,...
  • Day date with my girls on Robson St.

    There’s nothing that means more to me than dedicated, stress-free time with my kids.  If you’re thinking ‘how nice it must be’ that I get that opportunity, I can ease your mind and tell you that it doesn’t happen nearly as often as it probably should.  As the girls get older, our schedules get busier.  Taking...
