Forever Jumpsuits



 Jumpsuit: Forever21 / Shoes: Seychelles

It's been so long since I posted an outfit on the blog! I haven't had much time for blogging lately, but I managed to snap a few shots of my new favourite summer uniform over the weekend and I absolutely had to share. I've never thought I could wear rompers or loose fitting soft pants because of my body type and my age. It's hard to find a one piece that fits a body that is bigger on the bottom than it is on top. This particular jumpsuit is a little loose in the bust area but I solved that problem with a black bandeau. Overall I'm happy with the look and feel of this jumpsuit. It is the most comfortable thing I've worn in a long time. I'll be wearing onesies like this one all summer long!

I don't usually post photos of my friends here on the blog, but I had such a RAD (pun intended) time at the Color Me Rad 5k run last weekend that I just had to share. The Sporting Life 10k two weeks before was high stress and nerve-racking. This was the complete opposite. This event is a perfect activity for a get together with girlfriends or even families with small children. Has anyone ever done anything like this before? I highly recommend!

May Photo: Flowers

This month's photo theme was, by far, my favourite. I could photograph flowers all day long! I used to buy my pre-arranged bouquets from Whole Foods but I've decided to start arranging my own. The flower shop down the street has a much larger selection and is a little easier on the pocketbook. Since they were in season, I paired these small flowers with a purple bunch of tulips. Sometimes I secretly wish I could quit my desk job and become a florist.

OSG Cookbook: Chana Masala


This is my new favourite cookbook and I am obsessed!  Even though I eat meat occasionally, I still like a good vegetarian and dairy free meal every now and then. The first recipe I tackled was the Quick and Easy Chana Masala. It was quick, it was easy, and it was one of the tastiest Chana Masala's I've ever had. This recipe is great to make on a Sunday so that you can pack the leftovers for lunch during the work week. Even if you don't follow a vegan diet, this cookbook is a must have for any kitchen.

April Photo: Lunch





Lunch! That was the theme for April's photo and I am excited to share our new favourite sandwich shop with you. Sky Blue Sky is a sandwich lovers dream. There are so many delicious choices, they accommodate food allergies, and the shop is named after a Wilco album/song. Win, win, win. We'll definitely be stopping by here for picnic sandwiches and sodas.

This year, I spent my birthday with LG in good old Jordan, Ontario. Otherwise known as "Canadian wine country." Lucky for me the weather was above seasonal and we could spend some time outdoors without our parkas and winter boots! 

Also, for the first time in my life, I feel old. Physically old. My body has changed so much. It no longer bends or bounces back like it used to. I feel heavier, weaker, stiffer, and slower than ever before. I guess all I can do is keep moving and try to eat healthy. It's not easy growing old.

Happy April! I've been itching to bust out the pastels and thought what better way than to paint my nails in my favourite spring hues and sport some white pants. And it's certainly not spring without a bouquet of tulips. I think it's fair to say we made it through the winter. Thank goodness...it was exhausting!
