Deelish & Nutrish

On days when the heat is turning up and the day is going long, there are a few food essentials that really do keep me boosting it till the end!

With busy schedules, staying healthy can be a bit of a challenge but luckily there are some quick bites/sips that make the difference and are wonderful for a little bit of a snack.
Plus, what’s worse than walking around in the heat all day then feeling faint?

Satisfying little treats all the way!

{ chia seeds are a fave for being an ultimate superfood that also acts as a flat-ab fave - Win! }


{ skip the ice cream and opt to try Coconut Bliss, the most prime of finds in coconut ice cream }

Prime Finds

As May fast-approaches, my daily go-to’s have simplified and I am lightening the load in my bag.
Without the need for beanies, gloves, scarves and entire makeup bags, it’s been fun to select a few favourites that are currently making my month easy and breazy!
Maybe not quite Covergirl though because there are some naughty and not so nice chems and fillers in those little tubes!

***Ahem, ahem parabens, pthylates, mineral oil and all you nasties!

Along with speeding up the step with a much lighter tote, colour is something that has become a treat for the eyes.
The trend of pastels pulling me in a little with home details and accessories, adding softness to the look of a space.

As the days heat up, so does the craving for refreshing and delicious fruits and vegetables to snack on or juice for a nutrition boost.
I don’t know about you, but whenever spring happens I always feel my desire to be über healthy kick up a notch, which is why I really love being able to pick up a quick juice on the go on crazy busy days when my body needs the green fuel!

Thank you summer motivation ;)

{ @rejuicenutrition organic juices, easy to grab for quick on the go nutrient boost - Loveee the lemonade }

{ one of the best parts of spring :: when the colour comes out in the market with fresh fruit & veggies }

Hope Tuesday rocked your socks just a little bit ;)

Monday Mornings

image
One of the perks of my job is having random mornings off to enjoy a little sliver of the am. with a tea/coffee, some healthy reading, blogging, answering emails etc.

One of the things that is crucial to enjoying any morning though is to enjoy the space you are spending your morning in.
It is for this reason why I did a quick little tidy-up with some details that I am pleased to say really freshened up my morning space.

Happy Monday everyone,

if you have a moment today, take some time to spring clean and make nice your home :)

Spring Air

For me there are three sure ways I can tell it’s spring.
1- you can hear the birds as soon as you leave you building
2- mini-eggs are anywhere are everywhere you go, tempting you along the way ;)
3- Easter eggs become a decorative feature in the shops & boutiques around town

It so happens that yesterday all three hit at once!
I didn’t buy mini-eggs, but rather withstood the desire and opted for a healthy-dessert mod, also known as the most delicious granola ever!
This stuff has real chocolate chunks, so mini-eggs you shall not be missed.

On my little walk around town, I was also fortunate enough to see these beautiful silk-dyed eggs.
I am not familiar with silk dying, however one look at these delicate beauties had me thinking about my own Easter traditions and egg decorating…
Maybe a next week DIY is in order. Silk dying anyone?

I hope you are enjoying your weekend and taking some time for yourself.
Explore, have fun and add a little spring to your step to match the Spring in the air ;)

Happy weekend everyone!

{ the best Green-Kombucha tea by Yogi Tea :: not only do they taste great but they welcome you with a lovely little saying }

{ this gourmet granola will satisfy any sweet tooth and have you going to bed just to wake up for breakfast in the morning, it’s that good! }

{ beautiful pastel eggs, perfect for a home DIY project or even just to add some colour to your space & decor }

{ hopefully one of the last weeks I need to bundle up with my hat, either way it feels great to be outdoors with the birds singing! }
