    Tips For Getting A Better Night's Sleep

    Sleep is something I absolutely adore. I’m someone who makes bedtime a priority but often I find myself exhausted in the morning and wishing I could sleep for another hour or two. I typically get  7 hours a night, which should be enough without fantasizing about afternoon naps on a regular basis. I decided to look for ways to improve the quality of my sleep and it has done wonders for my energy levels. While I’m still tired some mornings when my alarm clock goes off, the feeling fades quicker and I’m not as sluggish come afternoon. So, for today’s blog post I thought I would share with you my…

    Birthday Weekend in Toronto

    The weekend before last I was in Toronto with my mom and my sister to celebrate my birthday! They surprised me with the weekend getaway – and I was so excited! Toronto is one of my favourite places to visit and I was happy to be going with two of my favourite people. We left early Saturday morning to make the most of our trip. We stopped at Starbucks on the way to the train station and caught the train about 8:30. The ride up was fun and went by pretty quickly. We arrived in the city about 11:15. It was supposed to rain all weekend but it wasn’t when…

    What’s In My Bag

    It must be my nosy nature, but I have always loved What’s In My Bag videos. I also distinctly remember loving photos on Tumblr back in the day that showed a handbag with its contents neatly arranged outside. A girl I used to work with and I were completely obsessed with seeing all sorts of pretty bags, plus what they had inside! While they have kind of lost popularity over the years; I still really like them so I decided to film one of my own! Basically this is just my every day bag and its contents. I don’t tend to travel with a ton of excess stuff; so this…

    Making the Perfect Cup with Keurig

    It’s no secret that I’m a huge coffee fan. My caffeine addiction began in high school and has only escalated from there. I even worked as a Starbucks barista for a couple of years. While I love going to cafes, I have been trying to make coffee at home more often in an attempt to save money lately. With my new Keurig K200 Plus*, making coffee at home is super easy and a lot of fun! I don’t have a ton of counter space so I really appreciate how sleek and compact the Keurig K200 Plus is. It also comes in 11 colours, so it will match any decor. There…
