Hellooooo Friday! And what a beautiful start to the day. As you guys probably already know, I loveeeee breakfast. I mean, it usually involves really yummy food that you get to eat right when you wake up! All great things.

So the other day I shared my Skinny Belle Shopping List: Breakfast Edition with you guys. As promised, I will be going through the list and further explaining why you need the things on it. One of the items on that list was greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is such a staple in my diet, I wanted to make a post dedicated to it. 

First things first. Do not buy sweetened yogurt. It is full of crappy refined sugar, and is frankly just a waste of calories. You can get your sugar from beautiful natural sources like the papaya pictured above. 🙂 In terms of what kind of yogurt you get, I really like Liberte. It is so smooth, creamy, and delicious it shouldn’t even be legal. Really, it is that good haha. I get the 0% fat-free flavour, which I linked above for you.

Okie dokes, so here is the best part of eating 0% sugar free greek yogurt. PROTEIN. ALL OF IT. There is 18 grams (YES 18 GRAMS!!!) of protein in 3/4 of a cup of greek yogurt. Yessssss that is the stuff I like! Protein is so key to feeling full and satisfied after a meal. And frankly with regular yogurt (has only 6 – 8 grams of protein per CUP) I just never feel full. So yes, needless to say I am all about the greek yogurt. It tastes better, has a better texture, and has more than double the protein of regular yogurt. What a thing of beauty.

So now you know!! Will you guys be switching to greek yogurt too?? Or, are you awesome and already buy it?!

FLOWER POWERRRRR!!! How EPIC are these sunnies?! I am all 70’s vibes these days eh? Totally loving it though haha. I actually picked up these beauties at PacSun when I was in the states a while ago. These were bought in addition to the 84989584082740 other super hippie things I bought. Okay I didn’t actually buy 84989584082740 items of clothing at PacSun, but that was about my level of excitement in the store haha. Sometimes things get real stale here in Canada clothing wise. Our options are quite a bit more limited than our American friends, but I mean hey… we are right across the boarder! Sharing is caring.

My shirt is from a company called Madewell, and it is the first thing I have bought from them but I am totally in love with their brand. It has super beachy boathouse vibes that are great for summer. Plus I have been on the hunt for a casual white shirt like this for a while so double winning that I found one.

Alright so my shorts. If I am being honest here I am nottttt a huge fan of jean shorts. I mean who the hell are they flattering on? They are just so bleh. I wore them with this outfit because I like how they look with this oversized top, but you won’t find me wearing them too often on here. Just not my style I guess, which is weird considering I pretty much live in ripped jeans the rest of my life lol. Anywho, these are from Brandy Melville (I think I got them in Austria!)

What do you guys think of this outfit? Are you feeling the 70’s vibes as much as I am? Comment below 🙂

What a beautiful day!! This weekend some friends and I hiked up to Garibaldi Lake near Whistler, BC. It was a phenomenal hike and such a great way to spend a Sunday. The hike was 5 hrs total (about 18 km) and definitely hit my list of “most beautiful places” I have ever seen. There really is no comparison to being way up in the mountains at a gorgeous lake! The air is fresher, the trees are greener, and we were all literally squealing with happiness when we got to the top haha. If you guys can’t already tell, I like to spend my free time either skiing down mountains or climbing up them. 🙂

Hiking is a great way to stay fit, because you can do it with friends! Doing something as a group is such a good motivator to get outside. Literally on the morning we were going to do this hike I was in bed all like “uhgggg it’s cloudy, should I even go up?” But I was en-route to meet friends so I had to move my ass out of bed and get going! Group motivation, works every time. Or peer pressure… lol that works too.

Hiking is a relatively (I say relatively cuz the way down can be rough) low-impact activity which is super beneficial for those of you who have bad knees/hips like I do. And the scenery makes the trip SO worth it. I mean come on!! Would you look at that view?! Gahhhhh I can’t even you guys. Full on white-girl “can’t even.” Lol. Okay that’s enough out of me for one day.

Get outside and get moving!! Summer is here!

Waddup friends. Okay so I have been so sick these past few days. AKA not a happy camper. Usually I am a pretty tough cookie when it comes to this stuff, but this was a badddd one. So while I was bed ridden and drinking copious amounts of my Hot Lemon & Ginger Tea (try it, it works like a charm because I am en-route to recovery!) I thought I would share my latest nail colour with ya’ll.

I am aware that this is not world (or life) changing stuff in any way, but frankly it kinda made my day. When I do my nails I usually (ehem… always) get boring neutral colours. They are easy, and they match with everything. Think black, cream, bland pink, and dark colours. The other day when I got my nails done, I thought screw it. I wanna go full on Barbie here. AND I LOVE IT. You guys. Why haven’t I done this sooner?! I just feel this stupid sense of happiness every time I look at my ridiculously pink nails. Does that make me a giant fruit? Do I care? Not really no. Needless to say, I am feeling the bright coloured nails these days. Maybe next time I will go crazy and get a bright blue or green….. Wild things people. Wild things are happening in my world. 😛

What are your go-to nail colours? Do you usually go with neutral dark and light colours like me? Or, are you into this bright and fun business that I have obviously just discovered? I wanna know! Tell me in the comments below 😀

Matching sets. I am all about them these days. And how cute is this Billabong set?! Such a good look for a nice warm summer day. And speaking of summer… I feel like it’s finally here! It is like Vancouver has been born again. People are out doing things and the city is buzzing with that summer excitement. I mean I love winter (because skiing, duh) but summer in Vancouver is a thing of beauty. It is basically impossible to not fall in love with the city at this time of year. And right now, I am head over heels. All I need now is a tan. LOL jk that is never going to happen in my lifetime (without the help of a handy-dandy spray tan hehe 😉 .)

Mmk so for a while here I was morally opposed to wearing Converse, but now for some reason I am totally into them again. Not sure what encouraged this change of heart… but let’s roll with it! Lately I am loving a nice white pair of chucks worn with a cute skirt or dress. I think the contrast between a girly outfit and some good sneakers is just enough to keep people on their toes. You know? And comfort… Let’s be real here. Converse are comfortable and comfort is king. 

What do you guys think of my sunnies?! They are gorgeous, no? I ordered them from this awesome French online glasses shop called Polette. A large part of the reason I like their products so much is the high quality and low price. I am a major deal hunter, so the fact that I can get these beauty sunnies for so cheap makes me a happy happy girl! Check out their instagram for the latest and greatest. 

In other news, I have started to think about what I am going to put on my summer bucket list! I find if I write things down it is the best way to make sure I actually do them. Right now the list mostly involves traveling and road trips, but it will start to grow quickly! Once it is done I will share it with you guys, so we can get some inspo from each-others summer fun ideas 🙂 Deal? Deal.

Love you long time. <3
