Five Easy & Enjoyable Healthy Habits

It doesn’t have to take a lot of effort to make your day to day life a little healthier. Thank goodness, since most of us don’t have enough hours in the day to get to the gym as is, I know I don’t! But I’ve learned to develop five healthy habits that help in keeping me fit and feeling healthy even when I don’t have time for an intense workout. I’m not much of a fitness guru, and I don’t…

Overlooked at The Kick & Push Festival

They say perspective is everything, and in the case of Overlooked this couldn’t be more true. I saw the play last week with The Kick & Push Festival here in Kingston from an extremely unique perspective – a back alley. No, there were no plush theatre seats, no lights, no microphones and not even a stage for that matter. The festival has gone above and beyond when it comes to creating theatre that is unique and fresh. The performance locations…

Beneath Our Feet at The Kick & Push Festival

It’s amazing how much can be said with no spoken words at all. That’s the awe I felt at the Grand Theatre last night after the opening performance of Beneath Our Feet. I actually had some misty tears in my eyes as I applauded the duo responsible for this spectacular and thought-provoking performance. I had to check this out as I spent some time in theatre school (read more About Anna) and am definitely a self-proclaimed theatre nerd. The show…

Two Years Married, Two Things I’ve Learned

The minute I find out that someone has been married for 10, 20, 30 years, or just for longer than myself (which is basically everyone) my favourite thing to ask is “so, what’s the secret to staying happily married?” I’ve heard some amazing answers. Some serious, stressing the importance of patience and conversation. Others were totally hilarious, like the time I met a French-Canadian woman on the beach in Mexico (that vacation: “Magnificent Manzanillo Mexico”) and she told me “always…

Jimani Collections: Discount & Giveaway

Are you ready? A giveaway and a discount code (details here), woo hoo! Ah, but not just for any brand, for one that makes a difference in this world. If you’ve been a loyal subscriber for quite some time now (you’re awesome, thank you), you may have noticed I don’t do these very often compared to some. I simply cannot stand giveaways and codes that are superficial, materialistic, and take 10 steps to partake in. I don’t like any of…

How to Wear Necessary Neutrals

How do you know when spring has officially arrived? Some people notice the blooms and flowers, or the sunny blue skies. But for those of us who are fashion-obsessed (who, me?) it’s the clothes that make the season. I take one look at those lighter spring jackets, dresses and flats and am so excited to ditch the parka, tights and socks! As a Canadian living in a climate that can turn into an absolute tundra on a dime, I appreciate…

How Do You Handle Change?

I think change is a fascinating animal. I’m referring to it as an ‘animal’ because it really is a savage beast in the way it completely overtakes your life, encompasses your every waking moment and well, changes everything. As some of you may know (if you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Snapchat, which is all that I’ve had time for lately, I’m sorry!) I recently underwent a big move. I called it “The big move” as for me it…

Urban-Grown Kale Chips

I’m so trendy, talking about Kale right!? Or maybe Kale isn’t the cool superfood anymore and I’m behind, but regardless, I like it! You can too (just do it, it’s good for you, I’ll show you how). My hubby (who has quite the green thumb by the way) has managed to grow quite a bit on our urban Toronto balcony: spinach, beans, rosemary, basil, parsley…and of course kale. If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you’ve probably seen my…
