The week in review

Hello friends!

Happy weekend. I’m not so happy about it because it means that our break is almost over. Classes start again on Monday which I am looking forward to about as much as getting my wisdom teeth removed (ugh.) But we have a saying around here which goes like this: “There is nothing that a little coffee and glitter can’t fix.” So I am thinking a hazelnut latte and my sparkly ballet flats are in order come Monday morning. Whatever the coming week looks like for you, remember to take a break this weekend and reset so you can smash your goals the rest of the week.

April book review: The Defining Decade

Hello friends!

Well down here it is officially Autumn. The trees are turning red which is making my heart very happy and it’s a little too chilly to go out without a coat now. So you know what that means? It’s officially hot chocolate and dog-eared paperbacks season. I mean reading is really a year-round, any time, any place kinda thing. On the bus commute to work, underneath your desk in lectures, while running on the treadmill (haven’t tried it because I’m sure there would be multiple casualties.) But there is something about Autumn that stirs up a strong desire in my soul for cozying up with a good book.

The week in review

Hello friends!

Happy weekend. The last of our hot cross buns have been eaten and the chocolate bunnies have only got their feet left eep. April is pretty much over and the leaves are just starting to turn that beautiful, brilliant red. And I’m sitting here trying to pretend that winter isn’t just around the corner and I don’t have a heck of a lot of study to do before classes start again. So much for having a productive break ha! I’ve got home and literally just blobbed for an entire week. But I think that’s what we kinda need. University is all go-go-go and the stress and lack of sleep take a toll on your body.

Hey friends!

So Mother’s day is just around the corner and I thought I’d jump in with some present ideas for you a little early so that you’ve actually got time to organize it.

Take it from the favourite child...your thoughtful gifts are the way to your mother’s heart.

You can’t love someone back to life…or can you?

Hello friends!

Do you ever get so invested in a show that it causes you to lose sleep? Not in a bad, this-is-so-scary way but more of a what-the-heck-does-this-mean kinda way. I don’t know if you have watched the TV show ‘13 reasons why’ yet, but I did and it cut me up. It’s been running through my mind constantly. I’ve been putting myself in all of the character’s shoes and thinking how and why things went so horribly wrong.

8 reminders you need for bad days

Hi friends!

Everybody has those days, everybody makes mistakes,  everyone know’s what I’m talkin’ bout, everybody gets that way. If you got that, that was Hannah Montana reference then I love you. But seriously though, everybody DOES have those days. Those days where you wake up on the wrong side of the bed or the wrong side of Sunday and everything just feels crappy. And you kinda wanna just have a pity party for one. Try as you might, lifting your sunken spirits is no easy task, there is only so much your favourite cereal can do. Sometimes you need a little reminder that bad days aren’t the end of the world.

Hey friends!

Brrr winter is definitely almost here. Waking up in the mornings is getting harder and harder. Well this week has been much less stressful than last week but equally as exhausting. I am extremely thankful that we only have one more week until the break because my motivation levels are at 0%. Even coffee isn’t enough to keep me awake in my classes. I need a holiday ASAP.

5 at-home workouts that don’t suck!

Hey friends.

It’s April already and I’m betting that some of you have let your ambitious 2017 health and fitness goals slide a little. But that’s okay because I totally have as well. However, I mentioned on Instagram that I just did something a little crazy and signed myself up to run a quarter marathon (sounds better than a 10k right?) So eep I gotta get training ASAP so I don’t die come race day which is fast approaching!
