Hello my loves! We had the most fun at Taste of Calgary this weekend :) My husband went on one of our “explore the city” dates to check out all the local restaurants featured this year. There were tons of people all enjoying the Taste of Calgary, with a reggae band playing on stage and so many incredible eats! We couldn’t have asked for a better day, and since it was our date night I definitely did not pass up the opportunity to get all dolled up. My mini Kate Spade goes with me to almost every event – perfect size and goes with everything! After exploring all the tastes we went for a stroll in the park, which is always beautiful. These satrapy heels made a fun addition to feel a little snazzy.. but if you’re planning on a long walk along the river, definitely take sandals instead :P Have a wonderful day my loves, and enjoy the tastes <3

Hello lovelies! Today I wanted to share the one day juice cleanse I did thanks to Cru Juice, a local cold-pressed juicery right here in Calgary. Those of you following along on Snapchat will know that after all the holiday eats and treats I thought it was time to kick it into gear and start off a clean eating month with a juice cleanse. I absolutely love Cru Juice for this! Their juices have the most fun names, and are so delicious. For the one day cleanse you get to pick 6 juices; 2 green, 1 fruit, 1 root, 1 nut, & 1 lemonade. The juices come with fun labels so you know exactly which order to drink them in :) Now as for the experience itself, after the first 3 I did feel a bit shaky and low on energy. However, I have to say these juices kept me full after drinking each one. But the best of all is that my blood sugar started to stabilize itself, for the first time in forever! So for those of you looking for that restart and reboot to end the summer off strong, definitely check them out <3

Good morning babes! We are back from our trip and can definitely say, I absolutely loved the downtown Vancouver vibes. Plus, the views by the ocean were priceless. Our days were filled with roof top patios, harbor walks, and finding all the best hidden restaurants // #foodie :) Now who doesn’t love a night out on the city in a little black dress? During all of our travelling, one of the best parts was getting dolled up and exploring the city with the bests. I love pairing a simple yet chic black dress with a pair of eye catching heels. These beige Aldo pretties are the perfect contrast to the dark color of the LBD. More than anything I love the little details, like adding a splash of accessory with a little bit of pearl to class it up. So keep finding those quirky contrasts in life my loves, and don’t forget to stop and appreciate the little things <3

Hello my loves! We are travelling the west coast and I am so enjoying all the fresh food and the chic restaurants around downtown. It is beautiful and green here in Vancouver, and I just cannot get enough of being out by the harbour, going for a run in the mornings, and visiting every little coffee shop we can find.

Today I’m excited to share with you this delicious strawberry choc mint smoothie. This smoothie is definitely a go-to for me when I am looking for a boost of energy and has some incredible flavors to boot

 
. It’s great as a breakfast or even a post-workout snack. Smoothies are totally my favorite pick me ups, especially when I am running late or having a busy day of errands. They are quick to make, and delicious to taste :)

// what you need:
+ 3-4 fresh strawberries
+ mint leaves
+ 1/2 frozen banana
+ 1 teaspoon chia seeds
+ 1 teaspoon flax seeds
+ 1/2 cup oats
+ 1 teaspoon coconut
