I absolutely love doing at home spa treatments. They are such a great way to relax mid-week and treat yourself. It is sooo important that we make ourselves feel special and cared for, so that we can properly relax and feel like the queens that we are. There are so many things you can do at home for almost no cost, that will leave you feeling refreshed and relaxed. I wanted to share this trick that I do about once or twice a week, depending on how much time I have.

Having a pink Himalayan sea salt bath is so relaxing and makes me feel like a new womannnnn. Lol! It really does. And there is a reason I feel so awesome after having one of these pink salt baths. Pink Himalayan sea salt is a magical thing. Himalayan salt comes from bodies of water located in the Himalayan Mountains. Putting the salt in your bath mimics the feeling of ancient seas (<– which is AWESOME! No?)

So… what does adding pink Himalayan sea salt to your bath do? Here’s the skinny:

  • It supports weight loss, detox, and balanced hormones.
  • Himalayan pink sea salt also improves your skin’s look, texture, and tone.
  • It provides you with 84 essential minerals and trace elements that can dissolve in water, and will absorb into your blood stream when you are in your salt bath!
    • These minerals and trace elements are essential to our health and well-being.
  • Pink Himalayan salt is also known to soothe muscle aches and pains, which is great after a long workout!
  • Have your Himalayan pink salt bath before bed, and you will notice a significant difference in the quality of your sleep!
  • And finally, it has been said that it reduces stress. Which is alwaysss a good thing 🙂

It is so cozy to have an at-home spa day (or evening,) and something as simple as adding pink Himalayan sea salt to your bath and lighting a candle can make a world of difference. I always feel so much more relaxed and calm after doing this. To have a pink Himalayan sea salt bath, I add about ¾ cup of salt to my bath. And there you go! At home spa. The perfect mid-week relaxation treat. 🙂

Lots of love <3

BIRTHDAY GIRL

Today is my birthday!! Here are some raw photos of me, and how I look at home. AKA sweatpants all the time. Wearing sweats and flip-flops when I am relaxing at home is literally my favourite thing haha. Now you know. 😛 I wanted to take a picture of myself this morning, to remember this day.

Different events, milestones, and special days in life are quite meaningful to me. If you havent already, check out my thoughts on Valentines Day. I think these special days, like birthdays, are such an amazing opportunity to reflect on all the great things that we have in our life. Not to mention, big days are often the times that I take a more in depth look at my goals, what I want in life, and make sure I am still taking the steps necessary to achieve my goals. That being said, goals for me are not something that just happen at New Years or birthdays. I just happen to find these dates to be a great time to reflect and make sure I am still on track. I am a continuous goal setter, so it is nice to take a step back and make sure my short term goals are still driving me towards my long term goals. Anyways… that’s enough about that for now!

Now on to the important stuff… PRESENTS!!! 😀 The beautiful camera I am holding in the photo above was my birthday present. It is now my child. I will nurture it, care for it, and give it everything it wants and more. (Until it stops taking good photos then I am totally ditching it for a better model 😛 ) Haha! But you get the point. I am super duper happy about this purchase, because it has been something I have wanted for a long time. Wasn’t quite ready to upgrade to a full frame camera (for my fellow camera nerds out there 🙂 ) but the Nikon D7100 seemed like the perfect upgrade for me right now.

Anyways, hope you are all having a great day! I really love you guys, and appreciate you hanging out with me here. It makes me so happy to be able to have this awesome community with you. <3

SKINNY SNACK

Everyone, meet delicious skinny snack. Delicious skinny snack, meet everyone. 

Yes, this snack deserved a formal introduction. Because it is that good. I find any time you make something from simple pure ingredients, you really can’t go wrong. I love keeping things simple, in all ways. My style is usually pretty simple, and same with the food that I cook! Occasionally I like to get crazy and mix things up, but usually my motto is ‘less is more.’

So if you can’t already tell, this is simply fresh cantaloupe wrapped in prosciutto and mint leaves. Sooooo simple, and oh so yummy. I like to make this as a snack in the afternoon to tie me over until dinner if I get hungry. That way I don’t end up like a ravenous animal at dinner time lol. 

Enjoy this snack! You won’t just make it once, promise 😉

I found another jumper that fits my outrageously long body!!! This is big news in my world. (Really.) Do you guys remember one of my first posts where I talked about how much of an issue it is to be tall and to find jumpers that fit? Well, here’s another jumper outfit I wore in case you missed it. There is also some more awesome whining about being lanky in the one too. 😉

This jumpsuit is seriously so cute. I love how sheer it is! It will be really nice in the summer. The back of it is basically completely open, which is one of my favourite things about it. I’m not sure why but I am obsessed with anything that has an open back. I think it just looks so glamorous, and can make a relatively simple outfit look very beautiful. 

It has been a gorgeous sunny weekend here in Vancouver! I started my birthday celebrations early this weekend with a big family dinner on Saturday night. It was such a fun night, and I am so glad that I got to spend it with my fam jam! <3

Have a great sunday night my loves!

Another beauty day up the mountain here in Whistler Blackcomb! Just loving all this sun lately :). I am always in such a great mood when it is sunny. Sometimes I really think I should move to California, so I can get sun year round. But the major flaw with that is the lack of mountains to ski on :(. So it looks like it will be Canada for me for a while longer! These photos were taken off the side of a run on 7th Heaven up on Blackcomb, one of my favourite spots to ski for sure.

This week has been crazy busy on my end, I have been prepping lots of awesome stuff for you guys! Today my plan is to just chill out a little bit, and get a good workout in at some point. Hope you are all having a fun week so far!
