another week is behind us, and i’m dedicating this weekend to really getting my life in order. i am totally unproductive when things are disorganized, so i need to prioritize the mundane. this includes thrilling tasks like washing the windows, getting rid of clutter, cleaning the car and (the fun part), fine tuning some details for my new business. speaking of which, i’m working with my first client this weekend, and stay tuned, because on saturday june 1st i’ll be making the big announcement on the right here! i hope you’ll join me here on the big day and show your support – it means the world (if you’re following me on twitter, you’ve seen a bit of a buzz about it…). exciting!
have a great weekend! x
i made this creamy (vegan) tortilla soup this week and it was delish!
this new photo app is all over instagram – it’s super cute and fun
i still swoon over (my editor at glitter guide) taylor sterling’s beautiful gold and pink wedding – it’s perfection… and you have to watch the vid
43 things that will make you feel really old… it worked for me (sigh)
so, gizoogle.net is pretty hilarious – google for the snoop dogg generation (side note: i literally had to google to see if ‘dog’ was two g’s or just one)
this week has been just as insane as last week! starting a new business is, to say the least, a major time suck. that being said, i completely get the meaning of the saying “do what you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” on a whole new level now. it’s work, but it’s beyond fun. on june 1st i’m launching the business right here on the blog, and i’m excited to share with you what i’m working on.
this weekend we’ll plant our pots (with succulents i bought two weeks ago that have literally been sitting on my kitchen table ever since… good thing we don’t use it much) and will meet friends for burgers on saturday night. i hope your weekend is full of doing the things you love most! x

the conversation is one of my fave series… love this 10 minute snippet with chelsea handler (i can really relate to what she’s saying!)
an easy, peasy no-knead bread recipe you’ll keep bookmarked
a commentary on true friends… loved this!
i feel like i’ve been running around all week! it was exceptionally busy – i usually have time to keep our meals on track, but my poor bf was left up to his own devices more than once. tonight i’m making burgers and a delish roasted corn salad – it’ll be a nice light meal, and maybe we’ll even take it to the park for a warm evening picnic – guess i’m feeling inspired by the photo above!
i was featured over on pink pearl pr’s blog this week – i tell them all about the start of my blog, who my biggest beauty inspiration is, advice for new bloggers, and my favourite hot weather destinations. oh, and my new beauty business launching june 1st! i’d love for you to check it out.
have a lovely weekend!

so it’s official: i’m back at yoga. after trying out a kundalini class with a gf last friday, i was back at it this week, and bought a monthly membership. let’s be honest, i suck at it. i’ve never been the best at yoga, but that’s a-ok with me – i’ve grown out of the egocentric “must be perfect at everything” mantra a long time ago. maybe i’ll develop my muscles in the way that helps me keep a bend or challenging repetition going, but until then, i’m enjoying the process (and the 3-day sore muscles afterwards!). isn’t that something we forget about much too often? we focus on being awesome overnight or achieving the goal without really being where we are.
getting a little deep on the sparkle today! have a fantastic weekend doing something you love, and i’ll see you back on monday? x

this week was a hectic one – full of productive meetings, trying new things and working on huge projects. i am trying out a new stress relieving yoga class today with a gf, moving a little out of my comfort zone will kick off the weekend right! it’s always important to do that once in awhile, isn’t it? tonight we’re hosting games night – i can’t wait to kick back for a few laughs (and bevvies, of course!).
on another note, if you’re in vancouver and thinking about buying a home, my gf is a real estate agent and hosting a free first time home buyers seminar on april 25th. i went to the last one and learned a lot about what i can afford and a strategy to make it happen – if you’re curious, i defo recommend it!
have a fantastic weekend! x
