Here’s To New Beginnings (And Guilt-Free Donuts)

Moving sucks, I think we can all agree. This past weekend, I packed up the contents of the ultra-girly one bedroom plus den I’ve been calling my own for the past three years and moved to the neighbourhood directly south—Toronto’s Liberty Village. My exact location may not have changed much, but this move was a […]

My Whole30 Challenge: What Failure Taught Me

On January 11, I embarked on my first-ever Whole30 challenge. For those of you who aren’t familiar, it’s a 30-day eating plan created by Melissa and Dallas Hartwig, with two New York Times bestselling books behind it, designed to rid you of your bad food habits, sugar and snack addictions, and food-related inflammation and sensitivities.

Skin Saver: Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil

People are always asking me what beauty products I use, so I’m going to start sharing my favourites more regularly—products I’ve tested and loved right down to the last drop. First up: Sibu Beauty‘s Sea Buckthorn Seed Oil (which you’ll notice now has new packaging). See that bottle pictured above? It’s empty. And I’m sad about […]

NBA All-Star Weekend,
Part 2: Nothing But Mat

Let me start by owning up to the fact that I’m not big on team sports—watching or participating. Since I traded in my soccer cleats for pointe shoes back in ’95 or so, I’ve done my best to avoid team sports of all kinds, at all costs. While I certainly appreciate the athleticism required and […]

Sweethearts: Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I’ve decided to spend this week reflecting on various aspects of that wonderful thing called love, from community love and self love to some healthy treats baked with love. Whether you’re perpetually single, serial dating, happily married or fresh off a divorce, it makes no difference here—this week is all […]

The Break-Up: Academy Of Lions + NTC Part Ways

For Women, By Women: Adidas PureBOOST X

Did you know most women’s running shoes are just adapted versions of men’s shoe designs? According to the folks at Adidas, that’s the cold, hard truth. To be honest, I never really gave the issue much thought, but it certainly sounds plausible. Come to think of it, I haven’t noticed many differences between male and […]

If A Hand Cream Could Change The World

If a hand cream could change the world, would you let it? Wait, what? Hear me out. When a package from The Body Shop arrived at my door yesterday, it seemed as if the company had read my mind. Even though this winter has been surprisingly mild, the air is still as dry as ever, […]

Just Announced: 2016 NikeWomen Victory Tour

Update (June 13, 2016): I received two emails last week from Nike saying that both the L.A. and Atlanta stops of the NikeWomen Victory Tour have been cancelled. I received a similar email about Barcelona back in May. I took a look at the Victory Tour website and it looks like about half of the cities […]
