I wanted to get my hair cut before I went to LA and Vegas, but it just didn’t happen. I was been feeling pretty dumpy, the ‘I need a haircut’ feeling can really get you down. However, the day before I left for California I received an email at the bank and said ‘YESSSSS’ out loud to my phone while in line. It was from Matte PR who works with Sassoon Salon,  inviting me to be an ambassador for the brand. I love Sassoon’s precision, have a ton pinned on my Beauty Board and remember that super funky black/blonde I had about 2 years ago, total Sassoon style.

Remember this look? Sassoon Style cut from 2 years ago!

My hair has a HUGE impact on my style, it shows off my personality and it’s part of my overall ‘look’ or ‘brand’ if you wanna call it that. If you’ve known me for a while, you know short blonde hair is MY THING. Short/blonde is also SUPER HIGH MAINTENANCE, having a partner to work with elevates pretty huge expense plus I love having experts on hand. I really enjoyed my first experience at Sassoon which is great because this hair is a sizeable time investment every couple weeks. In case you’re not familiar, The blonde can go yellow/brassy and the cut looks sloppy if not cut on the regular. 

My New Cut Colour 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼

I’m super jazzed  to be seeing seeing Sassoon Toronto’s Tricia McQuillan and Kimberley Wallace for cut/colour/style/treatments every 4 weeks with blow dry/style in between for the next few months. I almost wrote blogdry haha.

My new cut gives me serious self-love. It’s short and full of personality and style. The colour is a perfect, even blonde that’s actually shiny. Hard for bleached hair! The cut is precise and car be worn a few different ways. If you’re keen for a new style and want to book an appt, call 416 920 1333 or visit sassoon-salon.com (I’ve linked to Toronto!).

WHAT DO YOU THINK?!!

Working with Sasoon from January - June 2017 - hopefully longer!

Over the last few months I’ve been on a journey to take better care of myself. I feel better on the outside and inside, with more energy, and I’m less hard on myself.

Every spring I do a big clean on the house but I never really thought about cleansing myself? I’m getting rid of old habits, old friends, old thoughts, and setting new intentions. This year is different!

NEW YEAR, NEW ME


Here’s a few tips I’ve discovered that’ve help me feel happy and healthy. I’m making this year a great one by making small changes in my lifestyle.  

    1. Exercise

      You don’t have to go hardcore but it’s really important to be active and exercise. I’ve open to trying just about any workout and last week I did Function 45, that is a hardcore 45minute circuit workout. I’m planning t give it a go for 2 weeks to kick my summer bod into high gear. I’ve been going to yoga 3-4 times a week since the end of January which I find calms my mind and has started to lean out my bod while making me stronger.

    2. Drink Heaps of Water

      An old tip but a really good one. More water will energize you, help your skin, and it helps me snack a little less. After my LA trip in January I saw a bunch of girls at yoga with the Bkr water bottles and I ordered on on Amazon right away. I take it with me everywhere now and I find I drink heaps more water.

    3. Get a Dentist to Check Your Teeth

      It it had been a LONG time since I went to the dentist. When I finally went, my teeth looked good and I felt great. YAY ADULTING.

      I had braces in high school so (my parents) spent a lot of money and I spent a lot of time in a dental chair, I don’t want any of that to go to waste. I’d had a little tiny stain in the front of my teeth for years and in one recent visit, my dentist got rid of it.

      Regular dental appointments will save you $$$ in the long run. You only have one set of teeth and it’s really important you take care of them. Make a priority to visit your local dentist or if you were like me and didn’t have one, find a new one at  youroralhealth.ca/yourteethareworthit.

    4. Get a Fresh Cut

      Since my hair is super short I get a cut A LOT. However, a fresh cut or shave can do wonders for your self confidence, positive attitude, and personal style. I recently cut my hair super short again and I FEEL FAB-U-LOUS. Lately I’ve been going to Sassoon Toronto in Yorkville and they make a killer blonde. I have another appt tomorrow! 💇🏼

    5. SLEEP

      Something I’ve been really working on it going to bed at a reasonable hour. For years I would sit up late and work away on the blog or client things and I’d be exhausted. So, instead of lazy eyelids or falling sleep on the couch, I stop, and go to bed. You are only one human and there are only so many hours in a day. Go easy on yourself, you need sleep.

    6. Watch What You Eat

      I don’t claim to be a health nut but I’ve been trying to eat healthier. I recommend keeping healthy snacks on hand and in your purse at all times. Cut your portions in half. Save it for later! It’s ok to eat a burger and fries or have beer but not at every meal or every day. Moderation is key. 



 

Just think how great you’ll feel after doing yoga, going to the dentist, a healthy lunch, a haircut, and heaps of water! You’ll be ready for a great sleep knowing you fed your body and mind really well. Clean teeth will also leave you smiling HUGE at
 everyone who looks your way.

Here’s to a healthy and happy week!

Been loving yoga the last month. I feel good! It’s hard to stay focussed on eating well considering how much I love food, chips, and eating the go. I’ve been cooking in the Instant Pot a lot and trying to have homemade food on hand.

Was at Sassoon last week for a trim. Love having a partnership for my hair bc it is pretty high maintenance. Always need a trim or colour to stay looking fresh. 

Last weekend I made another terrarium. TD Hooked me up with all the goodies so it was pretty easy. 

The weekend before I made a terrarium w/ Hawley & some friends at the Google Shop.


We had one really nice day out last week and now it’s cold again. I am really loving staying home more and yoga. I feel like I needed to take some time to focus on me, like my actual self. I’ve focussed on doing that more since my LA trip last month. Feels good.

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend!
