Brush It Off!

bbgifTake a second to think about your daily beauty routine… what do you do, and why? Many of us have the basics covered; wash face, brush teeth, apply make up…possibly a shower on a good morning, and if you manage to fit in a full body moisturizing sesh you’re wayy ahead of the crowd!

There’s no doubt that these are all part of a well orchestrated morning routine,  but what if you found out you were missing one very important step?

The Cold Pressed Truth

juicer

JUICING. Love it or hate it (or too broke to try it), you can’t deny the health benefits it provides. An average 16-ounce bottle of cold pressed juice contains anywhere from one to six pounds of produce! That’s a whole lot of nutrients, but it leaves us with one burning question- WHAT EVEN IS COLD PRESSED JUICE? What does it mean? Is the produce being pressed? Is the press really cold? Isn’t all juice cold? Is there hot pressed juice? Is it as good as FRESH SQUEEZED juice?

We decided to do some sleuthing into this ‘pressing’ matter, and let’s just say, we now really want an office juicer. read more…

HOW TO: Treat Yo' Self With A Bubble Bath

bath

Have you ever had one of those days where you feel like crawling up into a ball and sleeping forever? If yes, then the answer is a good ol’ fashioned bubble bath.

No longer reserved for children, grown women (and men) can now revel in the niceness of a hot tub of water. Baths not only help loosen up your tense muscles, but they can also make you feel squeaky clean and soften your skin. Here are a few bath variations to keep you fresh and relaxed (but don’t forget the wine tho)… read more…

FIT CHATZ: Barreworks with Aliya-Jasmine Sovani


FIT CHATZ: It’s kind of like chit chats except with fitness and a “z” for added visual interest. Get it? Anyway…

We constantly reiterate that there just aren’t enough hours in the day – and while we aren’t complaining (because we live each moment to the fullest and all that jazz lol), we wouldn’t reject a couple of extra hours if they happened to get tacked onto our day. Luckily for us, we’ve been reassured that we don’t need to sacrifice anything in our lives because “there isn’t enough time” (and we don’t have to sacrifice our necks a la Channing Tatum when we work out #relevant). So, without further ado, say hiiii to our good pal Aliya-Jasmine!

Much like we sat in on fitness routines with Phoebe + Lauren and Sharlene, we followed AJ to Barreworks on Queen Street West in Toronto – AKA the life-changing establishment that has managed to formulate a workout that uses mostly your own body weight to grow long and lean muscles using a ballerina’s barre. We know that school can be tolling, but any excuse to live out our dreams as a ballerina is a win in our (text)books! read more…

Stunning, Sensational, and also Scrumptious *LUNCHABLES*

Besides giving her to the opportunity to exercise her food-retouching skills, this post gave Jen an excuse to make me lunch (hehe).

While it’s no secret that ~school has been out for the summer~ for a handful of months (duh), classes and 12:00pm lunch breaks (recesses?) are on the horizon – and considering we’re on that /health tip/ (see here and here), it seemed only natural to ditch the Pizza Pizza pizza breaks (sometimes) and pack a lunch the good ol’ fashioned way – mason jar included.

This school year, we’re made a promise to ourselves and to our moms. We are going to save our dolla dolla billz and make our own lunch(ables). Not only are they stunning, but they are also sensational and scrumptious. This is real life, y’alls. These lips don’t lie and these hips don’t lie. I am #Shakira. Goodbye. read more…

FIT CHATZ: Nike Training Club with Sharlene Chiu

FIT CHATZ: It’s kind of like chit chats except with fitness and a “z” for added visual interest. Get it? Anyway…

Last week we may have “om”-ed with Phoebe and Lauren, but this week, we ditched our typical noms“, and bumped up the intensity by sitting in on a Nike Training Club session with Sharlene Chiu. read more…

FIT CHATZ: Yoga with Phoebe Dykstra + Lauren Toyota

FIT CHATZ: It’s kind of like chit chats except with fitness and a “z” for added visual interest. Get it? Anyway…

With September just around the corner, there’s no better way to get in ~the groove~ for both your body and your mind than with a few sessions with your inner yogi. After a summer of rest and relaxation (for the most part), we’re all seeking a piece of mind so we can tackle the upcoming school year and the forthcoming challenges that come with piles of essays and your weight in textbooks. Needless to say, we were able to join our very best friends Phoebe Dykstra and Lauren Toyota for a session at Yyoga. Besides observing their ~yoga skills~, we also got their insight as to how yoga truly enhanced their lives and their friendship – and were subsequently inspired to grab our best friend and exercise our bodies, minds, and spirits to prep for this school year.

NAMASTE, FRIENDS. read more…

Summer Health 'n Beauty Resolutions

BEAUTY-RESOLUTIONS

Although the year is still 2014 (and I don’t want to jump the gun), summer is here and I think it’s a good time to make some health and beauty resolutions. There’s something about warm weather that makes you want to be the best YOU you can be and turn a new leaf. It might be something to do with the fact that with summer comes bathing suit/outdoor social gathering season – meaning people’s Instagrams are always at the ready – but lettuce be serious? Who doesn’t want their summer to be documented as beautifully as it possibly can be?! These are some resolutions I think any gurl can benefit from. read more…
