I’ve been in Alberta for five winters now. I moved out here at the beginning of December. It was met with endless commentary of how silly I was to move out west during the frigid Edmonton winters. What I’ve learned since being here though, is that Winter in Alberta is equal to cottage country in […]

My Mathew babe was super overwhelmed with work this past weekend, so I was trying to be super-girlfriend-extraordinaire and take care of all the nuisance things that life throws our way so he could focus solely on crushing through some work. I didn’t really want to cook, but I also didn’t want to spend a […]

If you’re looking for an easy breakfast option for whole30, look no further! At the beginning of the year, I made a gutsy goal to try to do whole30 again, but this time for 90 days. For me, having restrictions on what is allowed keeps me healthy. Otherwise, I have absolutely zero self-restraint. A few […]

Saturday was a good day. I finally got to trek to the mountains and get some use out of my snowboard! I went snowboarding at Lake Louise. 11 hours of total driving time was incredibly worth the 3 hours of snowboarding we got in. I’m seriously in awe of how majestic the mountains are. This […]

Some more progress has been made on my 25×26 list! I can feel it – this year is the year I complete it all. I’ve tried another new dinner recipe — spicy beef satay pho! I had never had Pho before moving out to Edmonton. I went to a restaurant with my mom and sister […]

You guys, confession. I am the worst at keeping plants alive. It’s never-ending houseplant struggles on my end. Even plants that are supposed to be very low maintenance. Somehow, they always croak on me! I’m fairly certain I must over-water plants or something. Tides are changing though. They must be, because I’ve had this awesome […]

look, it’s alive. bex houseplant struggles.

This DIY closet organizer comes in at under $200. I mean, seriously, have you ever looked at the cost of a closet organizer? My goodness! They can get quite pricey. And though I am quite fond of building out awesome organizers on the IKEA online PAX builder, I’m just not quite ready to dish out […]

If you’re looking for an easy meal idea, look no further! These enchiladas are absolutely to die for. I’ll be honest, though – I had never had an enchilada before in my life. I didn’t even know what they were. Then one glorious day about a month ago my partner suggested we make enchiladas for […]

Today we’re sharing my favourite quick, easy, and healthy breakfast idea. It’s definitely my go-to breakfast these days. Since the beginning of the year, my mom and I have been trying to eat super healthy. I had put on quite a bit of weight prior to my big move across the country (thanks to countless […]

In this last year, I’ve learned that I am very much a tangible touch kind of person. Digital to-do lists are never functional for me. I need to write it down. Physically check off the boxes. I’ve learned that the same goes for Calendars. I hate having to open up an app just to see […]

I am far from good at sewing. My mom once made my sister’s grade eight graduation dress. I stood in awe at the fact she was capable of making something so awesome. I tried to use her ancient singer for years. It hated me. Never once did it co-operate. A few weeks ago, I attempted […]
