The Joy of Gardening | Landscape Painting

Yesterday was so lovely and warm. Sean and I were at Home Depot before 9:30am. We sussed out our options and went for brekky. I  picked out some nice seeds, organic soil, bamboo, planters, and a pots. I’m so glad we were there together because all this stuff is super heavy!

The new patio was perfect for a bbq so I invited a few friends over to show off my work.  It feels so relaxing up there. I cleaned the deck so I can do yoga out there once we get past tomorrow’s frost. I’m excited to get everything planted and watch it grow.  I always loved gardening with Mum.

New patio styles!

Now that it’s getting warmer don’t forget your sunscreen. Nothing will make you look old like sun damage (or boozing super hard). I’ve been loving this Cover from Dermalogica, there’s also a Sheer that’s perfect once you’re a little tanned. I never leave the house without sunscreen on my face!

Market Fresh| Give Me All the Vegatables, Alllllllll!

20140414-105402.jpg

This weekend was super relaxing. We took EmBot to Kensington market for tacos and burritos on Saturday. So delish. I’m craving a burrito right about now. Loaded up on heaps of fresh fruit & veggies from the market too. I’ve been going through so much since I started juicing. I’m feeling great tho!

Showed Em how to make a juice and she thought it was pretty funny. Kinda like how I had my first experience with this handy little machine here (VIDEO).

Mixed mango, strawberry, raspberry, apple, and it was so delicious. Almost like a smoothie. Next time I’ll use the excess fruit to make some muffins or something.

The sun was also really nice. What a goof this little one! :)

Watch it Now! Cooking with Cuisinart Ep. 2 – Juicing!

On this ep. of #CookingwithCuisinart we're JUICING! I've been loving my juicer since we filmed. Watch the video, leave your juice recipes in the comments! Photo by Garret Tonge, #CookingwithCuisinart, Juicer

Ok guys, here’s the second episode of Cooking with Cuisinart where we talk juicing. I’ve been using my juicer everyday since we filmed this. At first I was like, how do I use this thing! This is my confused face haha. We did yoga then rolled up to Sasha’s house so she could give me the low down on exactly how to juice right.

Watch #CookingwithCusinart Episode 2 – Juice Extractor

We used lots of fresh ingredients. Try to use organic stuff but no matter what make sure you wash everything really good. In the last week I have gone through more vegetables and fruit than ever in my life.

Feeling Worse Before You Feel Better

This pic is some of the juices I made over the last week. One thing I learned about as a beginner is ‘Detox Headaches’. Your body finally has a chance to get rid of some of the toxins it has been holding onto, if you are like me, my liver is full of them!

Remember, your body is going through a healing and cleansing process, it can take 1-4 weeks to clean you up  depending on the toxicity level in your body. Make sure you drink lots of water and don’t give up.  I feel heaps better this week than last week.

You Just Have To Create Your Own Sunshine

Some Days You Just Have To Create Your Own Sunshine

So it was all raining this morning but I wasn’t having it! I ripped off the tags of this yellow shirt I got at Express ages ago and knew the sun could not resist me.

HEY SUN, I’M OVER HERE

Some Days You Just Have To Create Your Own Sunshine

You can stop raining now, sky.

Some Days You Just Have To Create Your Own Sunshine

It worked.

I’ll Be in Balconia or Muskoka Till September, Ok?

20140407-103408.jpg

Had a great weekend, hope you did too. Skipped home to visit Mum Friday and did some Saturday shopping.  Was back home in the city before dinner that night. Sean and I had a great day on Sunday. Since we’ve been making an effort to eat healthier we’ve not been going out/drinking as much. It’s great! I did groceries on Sunday morning and were out of the house just after noon.

Had a walk through Kensington market and ate at a delicious Mexican place on the south side of Roach-o-rama (sorry I don’t remember the name). Burrito was BURFECTION! I got a treat from the ice cream truck on the way out.

This rainbow filter is called ‘Through Marino Wool Sweater’. Thanks Mum for that gift!

20140407-103429.jpg

I spent some time reading on the roof top patio ‘Balconia’ before zipping out to the new Target at the Stockyards to refurnish the place. I managed to give it a new look and feel with some pillows and accessories while Sean was napping. Target and I are becoming good friends. Sean is building a storage box to go under the table.

Was my first time grilling cauliflower on the BBQ and WHOA it’s totally delicious. Used this recipe for grilled cauliflower skewers from Chatelaine and added some Diana sauce and garlic to the mix. Sean made burgers. I am so happy it’s SPRING FINALLY!

20140407-103441.jpg

I picked up these solar lanterns from Target and I’m  kinda shocked at how surprised I was that they worked. Why did I think they wouldn’t work? I got three sizes and the biggest one was $22. They charge during the day and they you turn them on at night.

Looking forward to getting home and catching some rays while I read some more of this great book Simon Schuster sent me recently. They saw me on CBC and send over a bunch of books. I vow to read and sew more than ever this summer!

Hope you are enjoying the day. Remmeber…

You will never be younger than you are today so make the most of it!
