It seems these days I don’t have time for much. Correction – it seems these days I’m so busy that I don’t have much time for ME. Grocery shopping, meal planning, house cleaning. Invoicing, quoting, emailing, sourcing. Children, husband, social obligations. When is it time for ME?

I’ve decided to take part in the #moms30for30 wardrobe challenge with some awesome and fabulous bloggers. Why? Because my wardrobe has fallen into a slump – I have a mommy uniform! Leggings, plain t-shirts, and usually my rain boots on my feet. I’m excited for this challenge because I think it’s time to focus on me, add a bit of style to the mix, accessorize, and wear things in my closet that I haven’t worn in a long time! View Post

There was a time in my life when I only wore heels – seriously, I’m not kidding. Heels gave me confidence, made me taller, and came in a variety of patterns and colours. Then I got a job where I had to stand up for more than 8 hours a day and I started to give in to the dreaded flat.

I discovered Tory Burch ‘Reva’ flats and never looked back. I quickly attained a nice collection of them – the basic black, a nice pink, and my absolute favourite – the leopard print pony hair flat! The look is classic and simple, but with a twist. Today we’re giving away a pair of Tory Burch flats!

Do your kids love Mickey Mouse? My son adores him – his brown eyes light up when he sees him on screen, and his Mickey Mouse plush toy tags along with us everywhere we go! I can’t wait for him to experience Disney on Ice and see Mickey Mouse, along with Minnie, Donald, Pluto, and the rest of the gang!

Everyone I talk to asks me “How is your smoothie challenge going?” – and I always answer “GREAT!”, although there were days that I wasn’t quite looking forward to washing my blender again. I’ve definitely been feeling a lot better, I think I’ve lost a couple of pounds, and my skin is doing that annoying ‘detox’ thing where every bad thing I’ve eaten in the past 6 months decides to become a pimple. Right on my forehead.

Skin problems aside, I’ve started becoming more adventurous with my smoothies! I discovered a new book, Green Smoothies: The Weight Loss & Detox Secret, which has helped me find new recipes. I’ve been adding in different varieties of fruits and vegetables, adding sweeteners like honey or maple syrup, and I tried out a new Vega One Nutrition Shake – Vanilla Chai! It was absolutely delicious and added some well-needed spice to my smoothie! View Post
