  • It Takes Practice.

    This weekend was super relaxing. Bed early on Friday, Saturday nap, made dinner & dessert, Sunday boating, blogging, reading. I love the weekend to slow down, talk less, sleep more, and take a break from email.¬† I didn’t use to be so good at it, I had to work at relaxing, I couldn’t sit still. Last year I went to regular yoga at a studio. One of my fav parts about yogayoga¬†was the practice, making time for it, laying on my mat, moving through the poses, sweating, meditating. Something I learned from my teacher, Sandy was ‘not reacting takes practice‘. And although she said it in the context of trying to stay still in savasana, I carried it with me right out the door and into my life. Not reacting takes practice.¬† It took me a while to be able to lay there, still on the floor with my thoughts…

    Head in the Clouds: Altavie & The Art of Now

    Not long I went to an event at Only One Gallery featuring a reading by NYC poet Cleo Wade hosted by MedReleaf‘s brand, Altavie. It was one of the first cannabis-focused events I’d attended, it stood out with its classiness and the incredibly cool group of mostly women in attendance.¬† The night started with a guided meditation where everyone closed their eyes to take a few minutes for themselves. The panel was hosted by Briony Douglas who’s art was displayed around the gallery with a few other artists (Alpo Snow, Tahsin- The Good and Enzee Creative. Briony is one of my favs I have couple pieces from her recent show MOUTHPIECE in my room. AltaVie by MedReleaf aims to help make mindfulness more attainable Altavie is a high-end cannabis brand with a movement towards mindfulness, being present, and living in the now. I was there thinking, ‘wow this weed brand…

    Getting Higher: Rock Climbing

    I’m writing this from the cottage with the lake as my second screen. Last week was a busy one after being away but I love those¬†weeks almost as much because¬†things move fast and it’s motivating.¬† The other day I went rock climbing with Raymi¬†and some friends at Hub Climbing in Markham. I like rock climbing but it gets harder as you get older haha. My arms were a bit sore this week from wakeboarding and my trainer. I’m chuckling a bit to myself writing this because back in 2001, I was a Sunshine Girl¬†(Toronto Sun) and my bio said I liked ‘baseball, rock climbing, and want to work in marketing‘. At the time I had never gone rock climbing in my life. Safe to say I always knew what I wanted career-wise!¬† There’s a slide! Climbed these walls! Change room has lockers We were invited to check out¬† Hub Climbing‘s¬†18,000…

    Clean it out.

    If you’re looking for some motivation, start with clutter around your bedroom, house, kitchen, and clean it out¬†this weekend. You’ll feel heaps better!¬†

    Sometimes you just need a break.

    It’s a great reset to take a break from your everyday life and escape to the woods. Sean and I had 7 whole days alone before welcoming guests on the last weekend. It was an incredible getaway. After my Portugal trip I felt like I needed some time to reset. August is always a time where¬† I asses the year so far, look at my goals and make a plan for the final quarter. Fitness, mental clarity, more work I enjoy, travel, and balance are key. I hit the ground running w/ my trainer this week and after my first weekend of wakeboarding, it was kinda hard. MY ARMS WERE KILLING YESTERDAY. I’m determined to give it another go this weekend and hone in on my skills. I honestly never thought I would be a gym-loving wakeboard chick but here I AM.¬† Swipe for video of me wakeboarding (Cory Lee…

    Live from the Lake, it’s Vacation Week!

    HI! We’re at the cottage for Sean’s birthday week. Woo hoo!
