Canada Day

Canada Day

I was so excited to be able to spend Canada Day at home in Edmonton this year with my family!  I know, it probably doesn’t sound like a big deal to all of you who actually live in Canada, but since moving to the U.S. last year, I’ve missed being around family during holidays like this. Now, did we actually participate in Canada Day festivities?  Not …

YEG Fitness

YEG Fitness

I finally got to come home to Edmonton for 10 whole days and it was so great to meet up with friends and family, though I feel like I made everyone work out with me!  Edmonton has some great options for staying fit so I thought I’d share my favourite YEG fitness classes that I just had to attend while home. Dance Code Studio (Downtown Edmonton):  My …

ClassPass Experience

It has been a while since I’ve posted.  This is mostly due to the fact that I haven’t had much inspiration lately and I don’t want to write forced posts, I want my topics to come organically.  I have, however, been crushing my 2016 fitness goals so far and have become hopelessly addicted to ClassPass in the one-plus week I’ve had it so I thought …

Super Bowl 50

It took a little bit of time for me to acclimate to San Francisco but lately, it has started to feel like “home” to me.  This past week, I felt especially lucky to live here, as I had the opportunity to attend many Super Bowl 50 events!  Now that the week has wrapped up and the city is getting back to normal, I want to …

Tights, Thigh-Highs and Stockings

December in San Francisco means it’s time for final presentations, Christmas parties and Christmas ballets, meaning I’ll be wearing a lot of skirts and dresses.  While San Francisco’s temperatures in December are pretty mild compared to Canada, it is still a perfect time to pull out those tights, thigh-highs and stockings.  I have recently tried a few new brands and thought I would share my favourites for …

Designer Sales

I’ve been slacking lately.  I truly don’t know how professional bloggers blog and go to school or work full time!  So while I missed writing about all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, there are still plenty of sales to post about!  In fact, some of my favourite sales are just starting!  I’ve never quite understood why, but designer sales tend to happen after …

Trench Coats

San Francisco cooled down a bit this week and I was finally able to pull out my favourite trench coats!  A good trench coat is a must in every woman’s closet and in San Francisco, I’m excited to be able to wear mine through the winter!  Below are two of my favourite trenches that are currently in my closet.  (Thank you to Farhan Khan who …

Workout Gear

In my last post, Working Out In San Francisco, I shared all of my favourite workout spots in the city and promised to follow it up with a post about my favourite workout gear!  I don’t know about you all, but a new gym outfit always motivates me to break a sweat! Tops:  I wear a large variety of tops, depending on my workout.  For dance, …

Working Out in San Francisco

Sundays have been my favourite days in San Francisco!  I like to visit the Heart of the City Farmers’ Market at United Nations Plaza and then attend Dexandro Montalvo’s hip hop class at Alonzo Kings LINES Ballet before I do some running around and get prepared for the week ahead!  As I have just finished a class, I am inspired to write about workouts that I’ve tried …

Sweaters, Because It’s Still Too Hot For Jackets

Continuing on with my fashion tips for San Francisco, I thought it would be appropriate to write about the significance of sweaters in this city!  It’s still too hot out to accessorize with jackets or scarves and I can’t get over the fact that I am actually upset by this! Tip 2: Keep cozy, yet cool in lightweight knits The weather in San Francisco can vary …
