Usually in the dead of winter, people get lazier than normal and fall out of their regular routines. I'm definitely one of them! I visited Smooth Wax Bar last week and I'm so thankful I did. At first, I was worried that the waxing would hurt as I'm more of a DIY kinda gal and have only experienced at-home waxing kits (they hurt!). But to my surprise, my full leg wax treatment was actually around 80% less pain than using wax strips from the drugstore, I kid you not!

If you haven't heard already, Saks Fifth Avenue is now in Canada! Saks has had a rich history since 1867 and was acquired by The Hudson's Bay Company in 2013. It was a pretty exciting retail launch in Canadian history. With the luxe gold details and mannequins donning high-end fashion, it was every bit magical. I walked through the opening of Saks Canada and their first flagship store at the Toronto Eatons Centre and it was spectacular!

It's the new year and everyone wants to get healthy! I recently received a copy of The Planet Friendly Diet by Cat Smiley ($29.95 CAD & USD). which is a book that features some cool tips to get healthy while also staying on a budget. I love to cook and really enjoyed testing out some of the recipes found in here. These fresh recipes are easy to make and super handy when you're not able to think creatively as there is a daily guide as to what to eat and how large your portions are. One of my favourite recipes within the book was the Baked Tilapia and I never knew that cooking with fish was so easy!
You hear about it all the time and definitely know that you should... "Healthy eating is so important, healthy eating is amazing..." But sometimes you just want a nice burger or some fried chicken. Amirite?! Don't lie... Seriously though, we all want burgers. Honestly speaking, I went from eating straight up junk food every day to eating healthy in little to no time. It's so important for you to treat your body right and here's why you need to cut some of that grease out of your life!
