Silver Icing “Eh Team” Leggings Some of you may know that my original hometown is Vancouver, Canada. I still have family and friends in different parts of Canada and I am a duel citizen. My family goes back to visit occasionally but we don’t frequent Vancouver as much as I would like. I have the fondest memories growing up in the Kitsilano or “Kits” neighborhood of Vancouver and taking daily walks along the seawall in Stanley Park or to Granville Island Marketplace to feed the pigeons (I can still remember the smell of that place so distinctly- whenever it comes to me, tons of good memories come flooding over me). As a kid, it was so much fun to watch the master kite fliers down by the marina and the amazing sand castle competitions in the summertime. Vancouver is a unique city in my opinion- offering amazing city life as…

Leggings: Zella Nordstrom (old) similar, similar, love these too | Top: Lululemon (old) similar, similar | Flip Flops: Havaianas I recently picked up these Zella leggings from Nordstrom and am loving them! They are the first piece of clothing I’ve tried from the Zella brand and they do not disappoint. Zella is an in-house Nordstrom brand, so they can only be found there or at Nordstrom Rack, but with Nordstrom’s easy FREE shipping, I’m ok with it! I love that the leggings are high waisted (no muffin top please!) and their light color and pattern are perfect for spring and summer! I have so many black pairs of leggings, so I wanted to mix it up a bit and these are fun and different without being too crazy 🙂 They have a good fitted feel and stay in place for workouts, yoga, hiking, etc. Also, the mesh detailing makes them very breathable…

Hi friends! I have decided to do a little series on exercises and stretches for different parts of the body that are simple yet effective. Today I am focusing on the hips. Many people, including myself, are quite stiff in their hips and it’s an important area of the body to strengthen and increase flexibility. When we are stiff, anywhere in our bodies, it becomes easier to injure ourselves. When muscles and tendons are tight, then they can more easily cause an injury even just from lifting heavy furniture or jumping into an intense workout, exercise, or sport. So it is very important to open and stretch out all the different areas of the body. You don’t necessarily have to stretch out every single muscle group everyday – maybe focus on an area per day or try a yoga sequence that targets most areas of the body. These  stretches below…

Leggings: Shop DYI, Also love these and these white ones, and these with mesh cutouts, marble sport bra;  Denim jacket: Similar, on sale; Navy Tee: Similar; Bag: Similar; Shoes: Keds, love these Adidas Have you noticed how popular the marble trend has become? I’m seeing it everywhere! From laptop and phone cases, to marble manicures, to marble clothes, to home goods, to flat lays on Instagram. I think it’s such a fun pattern to incorporate into your home and style! It can be easy to go overboard though. I personally prefer to add it in small touches as an accent as opposed to covering your entire home and wardrobe in this wild print. This is my first piece of marble clothing and I was happy to find these leggings from Shop DYI and they are actually now on sale! They are high waisted which I love and stay in place for workouts and yoga (I…

Modified Plank / Push-Up – Works arms and abs  Hey Friends! We are now a few months into the new year and I am proud to say that I have been sticking to my fitness goal of working out 3-4 times per week! Honestly, in the past I had not kept a workout rhythm. I would dabble in different exercises and try different studios (which is still fun to mix things up!), but I wasn’t consistent. I finally wondered to myself, “I take the time to eat clean and healthy and incorporate superfoods and herbs into my diet, but why can’t I exercise regularly? Something has to change!” And it has! My body and mind feel so much better after a workout, even if it’s just a quick one. While I am exercising my mind is so focused on getting through a movement or posture, that I am not thinking…

 Leggings, Boots, Sweater: Similar Here and Here Bag: Similar Here, Love This One and This One Scarf: Here and Here As the weather here slowly begins to transition to spring, cardigans are my best friend! We still get chilly days (and some snow) so my Sorel boots are still getting some use. But when it isn’t so cold that I don’t need to wear my huge puffy coat, I love opting for a cardigan and this neutral long cardigan outfit has definitely been on repeat these days! I love pairing neutrals together for a relaxed (hint: easy!) and sophisticated look. This one from Abercrombie has been an excellent addition to my wardrobe! It’s so easy to pair with almost anything since it’s neutral colors, but the texture and print makes it more interesting and adds some dimension to a look. Cardigans are also a great thing to throw on over your active wear after a workout to look a…

Top: Zobha Leggings: Lululemon Sneakers: New Balance (similar, love these, and these) There are many ways and many reasons to elevate your style, even if it’s just with little, simple details. It’s easy sometimes to get stuck in a rut with clothes and start to feel bored wearing your same favorite outfits. I’m definitely not saying there’s something wrong with wearing your favorite outfits! By all means, go for it (I have my favorites too!). But I think it’s fun to take your favorite, casual outfit and jazz it up a bit with some different pieces! Here’s My 5 Favorite Ways to Easily Dress up Your Active Apparel: ADD LEATHER- whether it be a jacket, shoes, or hat, it’s such an easy way to instantly add an edgy flair! ADD A CHIC, GLAMOROUS BAG- find a great, versatile bag that you love. A purse in a classic color is a great wardrobe…

Boots: Sorel Coat: Nordstrom Leggings: Lululemon Silk Shirt: Lush brand (old, similar here) Sweater: Similar, Love this one With the cooler winter months, I have decided to show a less fitness-y outfit and a more metropolitan, chic look in this grey sweater outfit. It’s the perfect time of year for layers, layers, layers! Here I have paired a cropped wool sweater (very warm!) over a silk shirt for some dimension, interest, and added warmth of course! I like how the silk flows under the wool and gives a nice contrast (it also covers the booty for a more refined look). I am still wearing my trusty Lululemon leggings for comfort and a hint of athleisure. I got these new Sorel boots and stylish winter down coat for Christmas and have been wearing them almost everyday! They are so easy to pair with anything- leggings, jeans, dresses, skirts- and they keep me nice and…

Top: Satva Living Leggings: Lululemon As I have mentioned in my bio page, I am going to feature different sustainable and eco friendly clothing lines whenever I find ones I love! So I would like to introduce you to the company Satva Living; a fashionable athletic wear brand focusing on using certified organic cotton for all their garments. There is only a small percentage of lycra added for stretch. The name of their company, Satva, even means pure! So you can bet they are walking their talk and keeping their products super pure for the sake of our health and the health of the environment. The farm they source their cotton from implements sustainable practices and never uses any toxic pesticides, fertilizers, or dyes- all the dyes used are plant based! I think the best place to start with organic cotton or natural fiber clothing is undergarments as they are closest…

The snow is coming down again today! I love the peace and quiet that a snowfall brings. We are the last ones on our block with our Holiday lights still up and I love it! They give a warm festivity to this cold time of year. Even though the snow is beautiful, I can’t wait for our warm Cali vacation coming up in February! My husband and I both love California and like to visit at least once a year! Any recommendations of spots to visit in Southern Cali?? We are planning on lots of beach time! I was gifted this sweater recently and have been loving it as a cozy, winter staple. If it’s super cold out (which it has been lately, and I’m a wimp in the cold!) then I can layer shirts underneath it. I like how the sweater has detailing on the arms and…
