Summer is now in full swing! The bright sunny days and warmer weather are getting me super excited for some of the things I’m planning this summer! I’m super stoked to share with you my summer bucket list and the fun things we’re planning in the next couple of months!
Go on a road trip!
This weekend we’re taking off on a road trip to beautiful Fernie, BC. That’s a 11-hour trip one way – but of course, we’re going the loong way through Revelstoke, and spending a night there, too! I’m so stoked for mountain biking, hiking, the aerial park, and checking out the gorgeous town of Fernie, too!
I’m really looking forward to snapping some amazing photos with my camera (gotta dust that baby off and charge up the battery!), because the scenery is going to be amazing! View Post
Summer is finally here – the skies are blue, the sun is shining, and it is hot out there. I am loving it! I love having our patio doors wide open, the kids are able to play outside all day long, and we can enjoy a meal and a drink outside on the deck. It’s heaven. I should be living in Hawaii or Malibu.
With the lovely weather I’ve been inspired to move more – yes, I get super sweaty and gross. The definition of a hot mess. Who cares? I wish I was inspired to work out more when it was winter, but it’s the sunshine that makes me want to move it and lose it! The weight, that is. Bad pun?
Over the last few years I’ve been seen the pictures and glanced in full length mirrors at clothing stores, and I’ve been watching myself slip away. I don’t recognize myself anymore. When I weigh myself I get stunned. How did I get here? How did I allow this to happen? View Post

I wanted this summer to be the summer of literally nothing. I really, really did. The last few years have kicked my butt with activities, camps, and different sports – along with travel, work, and having a life of my own! So this summer I planned nothing… or so I thought.
I realized that the kids have mountain bike camp twice a week all summer long, plus they go to the trampoline centre a couple of times per week. We just completed our road trip, we have Crankworx coming up, we’re planning another trip at the end of summer… and when I actually laid it all out on a calendar I had a silent scream moment.

Do you know what I love? The comfort of a big, comfy bed. It’s like a sanctuary, a place of respite, somewhere you can rest, nap, sleep, dream, and play on your phone…! To create a cozy bedroom, it takes a few key pieces – a fluffy duvet, a nice rug under your toes, big pillows you can prop yourself up with or sleep comfy on, mood lighting with candles and lamps, and some things that you love like books, snow globes, plants, or art!
To create a cozy bedroom the first step is to remove everything. If that seems like a daunting task, remove everything but furniture pieces that have to stay (bed, dresser, etc), and be sure to align those furniture pieces in a way that feels good. Trust me, taking everything out of the room is the best way to do this.
Next, only bring back the things that either have to be there (clothing in the dresser, for instance) or bring you comfort and joy. Oh yes, I’m going konmari on you. But to be honest, you can’t make a master bedroom cozy or comfy if it’s full of clutter and junk. Remove all the junk, and then continue! View Post
I’ve been working on creating some balance in my life, between business, family, and my health and wellbeing. I love to indulge – who doesn’t, right? But I also like how I feel when I eat healthy, when my body gets the nourishment it needs. I’ve been working with a life coach for the past few months, (which is absolutely amazing and I recommend to anyone who’s thinking about it…!) and while the program is open-minded when concerning food and diets, there was one thing she recommended to everybody.
Eat a salad every day.
It’s so simple. Create one meal each day that’s devoted to fresh and seasonal veggies and fruits. Salads are full of nutrients, vitamins, and fibre, and they’re just so good for you! But if you’re like me, you might be hesitant to make the switch – I mean, a salad each and every day? Won’t I get bored? I quickly discovered that there are literally a million and one salad recipes, and if I’m strapped for time or out and about, there are some amazing options to throw together a quick and yummy salad!

There are so many amazing restaurants in Whistler that it can be difficult to choose where to eat! I love experiencing all the different options available for restaurants in Whistler, because it’s fun to explore all the different pubs, restaurants, and cuisines that are available! However, I do have my favourites… don’t we all?
I put together a list of my favourite restaurants in Whistler – the best pizza, my favourite breakfast, fine-dining restaurants – a bit of everything! Of course, there are so many incredible restaurants in Whistler, that I had to cut it down to just a few – my go-tos if you will! Enjoy! View Post
