Okay so I know that starting your day with greens is usually a great way to boost your energy and mood, but as the weather gets cooler I’m craving more yummy cozy flavours like chocolate and peanut butter in my smoothies.
I cant be the only one!
Here is one of my go to recipes including Vital Proteins Chocolate Blackberry collagen protein powder. It’s so good mixed with a bit of peanut butter. Filling and full of collagen, protein, antioxidants and vitamins.
The story begins back when I was in fashion school in NYC from 2010-2013. I was addicted to blogs and Tumblr but I never felt the need to be a fashion blogger. Lifestyle bloggers were few and far between at the time, and fitness gals barely existed besides BBG cult followers. What drew me to the process most was the aesthetic and styling of the images. I would save picture after picture in folders on my desktop (pre Instagram and certainly pre saving and filing away on there! Thank G-D for that feature!). One folder was fitness and the other lifestyle/fashion. My two alter egos. So, I spent hours and hours on tumblr with no idea how to start anything remotely blog like and therefore I didn’t. I was young and the idea of starting seems so far away. In retrospect, I wish I had but regret is a useless emotion. That being said, my now boyfriend tells me that on our first date in 2013 in NY he asked me what were my goals after I graduated. I told him I was going to be an influential blogger. He was one of the only people I told that to… and I didn’t know why at the time but I trusted him. He also now tells me at that moment he thought… okay, this girl has big dreams and what the heck is that even?! Ha. 5 Years later, he now is my biggest supporter, the best photographer and teammate!
My typical morning consists of waking up, hitting the gym and one damn good collagen matcha latte.
I often share my recipe (or at least the fact that I'm drinking it) on my instagram stories... like any good health obsessed instagrammer.. But I have never put together a full recipe video for you guys.
I’m going to guess, yes! Probably a few times a week, maybe once a day… I feel this weird feeling all the time. Fear. But still a feeling of excitement, perseverance, possibility, drive and often that makes me so excited... until it because anxiety. I think its a common thing to many of us, and I certainly am still trying to figure that out. Why does fear hold the hand of excitement?
In honour of the fourth of July, I've been strategizing about what type of healthy and light day cocktails I can consume for the celebration. I'm currently in NYC and since I brought with me my favourite to go packs of Vital Proteins Beauty Water I wanted to share with you all this video of my Mom and I making skinny spritzers together back on Mother's Day. They were bomb!
I can see myself years from now, someone interviewing me about my life, or my business or perhaps just my kids asking me what the scariest thing I did in my career was? What was the biggest risk I took? I can see my mind flash over everything that’s brought me to that point. In all of my triumphs and obstacles I have and expect to face in my projected career, I can’t imagine anything being harder than falling in love.
I spent this past week with Saucony in London, UK kicking off their #RunYourWorld campaing. As their Montreal ambassador, Saucony flew myself along with two other Canadians from Toronto (my girl @kale_and_krunches) and Vancouver (new friend @LangstonNatalie) across the pond to check out all the trendy run spots hitting London.
Whats new in stretch? Chantelle Lingerie launched a new collection of one size Soft Stretch bras and undies and I’m totally hooked. The collection is comfort all the way. They are really soft to the touch with a seamless finish so they go unnoticed under anything. If not hidden away they are cute and sexy to lounge around in, hit up a pilates class or wear under a blazer with jeans. Here are my 5 Places to Rock Chantelle Seamless Soft Stretch this summer!
