January Goals!

I'm trying something new and setting little monthly goals for the duration of the year. Each month I'll check in with the previous month's goals and set some new ones. January is generally a rough month because it's so freezing cold, the holiday magic is gone and the reality of the daily grind sets in. This month I set up some fun (in my opinion) goals for myself. Things I know I can realistically complete before I start challenging myself for the rest of the year. I'm pretty excited to get…

Winter Reads

We're well into Winter and with the sun going down so early these days - I'm always ready to turn in with a great book. I have a huge pile of books on my nightstand waiting to be read! Last year I challenged myself to read 30 books, and I only got about halfway to my goal before completely giving up. This year I've reset my goal to 30 books and hope to complete it this year. There are a lot of great books being released this year so I'm definitely looking forward to that. I put together a…

Niagara on the Lake

Today I'm sharing some photos from a recent trip I took out to Niagara on the Lake (affectionately known as NOTL). If you're unfamiliar with the area, NOTL is a mid-sized town just minutes away from Niagara Falls. Niagara Falls is a well-known tourist area, which means it's always very crowded and the attactions are overpriced. NOTL is much quieter (even during the busy season) so you can take your time exploring the incredibly unique shops and restaurants. I'm so drawn to NOTL because it's…

Dorm Decor Ideas!

When I first moved away for university - I remember how much fun it was to plan the decor for my residence room. I would take every chance I got to browse through Pinterest and home decor stores to come up with ideas for the perfect room. I love how you can take a dreary 4x4 room and turn it into something that…

Staying Hydrated

I absolutely love drinking water, but many people I know mention they need some help in this area. In my pre-water days, I did find it difficult drinking enough water. I didn't love the taste and I had a really difficult time keeping track of my water bottles (😛). Now, it's worth noting I have extremely dry skin all over, and my hydrophobic ways did not help my case one bit. A few Winters ago, I couldn't manage the dryness and went looking for topical creams and products to help hydrate…

#BellLetsTalk

If you notice that I'm more active on Twitter today, it's because it's Bell Let's Talk day. It's a day devoted to ending the stigma around mental health issues and promoting open conversation about mental health. I always look forward to this day because I believe mental health is just as important as your physical health. I personally have worked through mental health issues in my life, but I know there are so many people who suffer in silence and it should not be this way. My tweeting…

Athleisure Outfit Idea

2017 has definitely been the year of working out for me. I have always been mildly active (tennis being my activity of choice), but this year I really stepped it up. I really enjoy going to the gym and try to get a workout in at least 5 times a week. Since I spend so much time in the gym, I also spend a lot of time in athletic gear. When shopping for athletic gear, I need to find clothing that is functional both in and outside of the gym. Being able to run errands and take a workout class in…

Ways to Practice Self Care

I had another post scheduled for today, but after everything that happened this weekend in Charlottesville it didn't feel right to post it. We are certainly living in uncertain and stressful times and the need for self-care is at an all time high. Social media is a great way to stay informed, but constant negative messages and images can take a serious toll on our mental health, and it's so important to take care of that. Self-care can look like many different things, so it's important to…

2018 Goals

We're a few days into 2018, which means it's time to get to work. Over the years I have made resolutions that didn't go anywhere so this year I'm taking a different approach. I find that it's easier to work toward things you would actually like to accomplish rather than jumping on the self-improvement train everyone seems to join at the beginning of a new year. When you plan to do something entirely for yourself - there is way less pressure and you approach it differently. I have a handful…
