Stop to Smell the Roses, Treat Yourself

Stop to Smell the Roses, Treat Yourself

I started this weekend off right with a trip to Hammam Spa early Saturday morning. I spent about 30 min in the steam room before my St. Tropez treatment. It’s a sunless tan type application and to be honest, I think it wore off already and I won’t do it again. The experience itself was great and I booked with Cynthia who is awesome.

Smashed up some bananas in the blender to throw into this mix when it came out of the juicer. It was a great way to start Sunday morning. I made Sean and I nice breakfast and we watched Romancing the Stone, an old romance-find-the-treasure movie from the 80’s.


These shoes arrived Friday from the NastyGal Shoe Cult. I made a mistake in the postal code when I purchased them and I totally thought they were on their way back to NG HQ.

Had lunch at Free Times Cafe for Ariel & Chris’ engagement party. It was fun and the food was amazing. I really like Yiddish music. I wish I understood! The piano player was from the National Ballet of Canada too.


Stopped by the Parkdale Flea Market on the way home. It was such a nice day out I just wanted to do things outside! I picked up a shirt for Sean with an illustrated bear that is running. It’s super cute.

Made a delicious juice this morning with spinach, kale, grapefruit, apple, pear, and a dash of cinnamon. It’s so freaking good! If you missed our latest Cooking with Cuisinart episode with the juicer, watch it here. I feel good if I keep posting the juices I make because it serves as a good reminder for me to keep making them. I’d determined to drop a few LBs this month!


When I arrived at the office this morning my tulips had bloomed, aren’t they beautiful?! BTW the Toronto Flower Market opens this weekend. Details here. I love popping by to pick up flowers for a friend (for any/no reason), or just to treat myself. I’d love a nice medley of roses!

I’m ready for a great week and have booked the day off on Thursday for my birthday. Friday is a half-day cause a bunch of us are going to an art event. I know it’s Monday but I’m already looking forward to the weekend! Yesterday I cooked up a bunch of meals for the week too. [pats self on back there!]

Sending good vibes your way.Happy Monday!


Making Magic w/ Garret and a Food Processor

In this episode, Sasha, Garret and use a  Food Processor and make a delicious pizza (Garret’s recipe!) and chocolate muffins.  TBH, the pizza was so good I ended up taking some home for Sean We made the dough and topping the food processor. I didn’t really know what a food processor was before we filmed this. I had no idea you could make so many things with it. Garret uses his all the time for breads, salsa, even homemade hummus. Props to him for the nice image above.

This is is my Martha Stewart pose.
