Belly Baring

I’m cleansing you guys – because it’s Summertime and baring your midriff is big this season.
I scoured the Internet until I found a doable detox program and the Four Elements Cleanse seems doable. I’ll eat high fiber fruits, veggies and grains and drink a mixture of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and cayenne pepper for the next 7-10 days. Easy peasy. Except I make everything extra difficult for myself. I overindulged this weekend so I’m starting off puffier than usual and craving a Fritter like a mofo.

It’s been three hours. I have a headache. I want a cup of coffee. I’m gagging over the detox drink. I’ll let you know how I’m feeling in a few days. Happy Monday!

Rock The Boat 2

So I’m taking tomorrow and the weekend offline and I’m giddy as hell about it. Have a glorious weekend and don’t be jelly. My life is rarely this carefree.

Tips for the perfect long weekend holiday:

  • Drink your signature cocktail all weekend – you deserve it!
  • Dress in breezy maxi dresses, anything sheer and havaianas.
  • Go for a natural look, wash hair, tie it in a bun then let it dry naturally – your waves will be killer – thanks Karen for that tip.
  • Create a Long Weekend menu and try a recipe using fresh produce from your local market – I’ll be chefing up cold eggplant stacks drizzled with olive oil and balsamic with fresh basil and love.
  • Enjoy an ice cream in a classic cone.
  • Head north, where the air is cleaner and the stars shine brighter
  • shut down your laptop, even if you stay in the city turn it off – explore your own surroundings and act like a tourist while you’re at it!
  • Own being lazy – if you have a DIY project or gardens you want to work on do it at a slow pace. And if you get distracted by cocktails or friends, who cares enjoy it.
  • Drink your signature cocktail..

Happy long weekend everyone!

This is what my car looked like this week…

This is me tomorrow…

This is what I will be looking at…

I will drown in this before I drown in the lake…

Rock the boat a little!

Happy May long weekend.

Separation Anxiety

I took a mini break from blogging  and it was invigorating. But I missed you guys too much to stay away any longer, I’m suffering from separation anxiety. Your comments made me feel wanted and when I feel wanted, I deliver.

I was super busy and out of balance this summer, ya know having fun – cottaging, cocktailing, bronzing, glamping, road tripping, shopping and golfing (otherwise known as sitting shogun in the cart, stroking my fellas ego, sipping Ceasers and bronzing my legs). My gallivanting had gotten the best of me. Now that summer is winding down and my drink of choice is sparkling water I’ll be delivering as much as possible, oh how I’ve missed yous!

Cheers to a great Summer….

Happy hump day!

The Sweetest Th’ing'(s)

This long weekend was utter perfection. With nothing too planned on the agenda and hot, summer-like weather I relished in a little C&R (cocktails & relaxation). From being lazy in the a.m. hours,  cottaging in the Muskokas with some great peeps, to celebrating my lovely fathers birthday, I was one happy girl. The best part was the warm air that lasted well into the night. It almost felt like a crime to be inside at all so I spent as much time outside as I could.
 
August long weekend is a sad hint that Miss. Summer is almost done her stay. That being said, I’m taking the next few weekends and doing the sweet things I love with people I adore. I plan on brunching, cocktailing, shopping, dancing, laughing, eating, napping, swimming, cottaging, boating, reading and partying – pretty much the same thing I’ve been doing all summer long, only with lots of love!
 
The Sweetest Things:
 
 
Laughing – til it hurts…
 
 
Cocktailing – with Mr. Grigio
 
 
Swimming – in a lake
 
 
Partying – with good friends

 

Brunching – with my birds

Napping – in the sun

Dancing – on a table

Do the th’ing’s you enjoy…

Summer Brain

I’m playing some serious catch up in my life and career right now.  I guess that’s what happens when you spend your days off in a no-ambition-but-to-lunch-drink and-lounge-by-a-pool haze.

My project list is advancing before my very eyes and I keep taking on more.  Case in point, my bubble chandelier project? What happened there? The material still sits stilly on my floor in its original Home Depot bag.  Then there’s the lovely jewellery organizer, I have all the tangibles to create the perfect home to keep my gems organized, do you think I have even entertained the adventure? Nope.  I have e-mails that need responses and writing to be submitted.  I’m behind people.

I’d rather be doing other things…Like strutting down the side-walk in a breezy skirt and cute heels, window shopping then breaking for lunch!

This is just another symptom of summer brain..

Strutting it with the girls…

I’d get blisters for these…

Window shopping….

The dog days are over, I need to get my sh*t together.  At least until my  summer holidays begin.

Skinny Dipping

The weather is a scorching 33 degrees here, the sun is so intense it may burn a hole through my J Crew Rowboat dress…I’m trying to stay focused on work, however my mind keeps escaping me with thoughts of what I will be doing once my work day is finished. I absolutely believe the heat is making me hallucinate?

All I can plot  is shedding my work clothes and skinny dipping in the daylight. This is unheard of around here. Unless you’re in Europe or live on a private lake daylight skinny dipping is bold behaviour. Regardless I don’t give a sh*t. I going to be audacious!

On days like today I hate clothing…. my dress is suffocating me.

WARNING: Friends and family –  if you hear someone splashing around in your pool early evening don’t be alarmed, it’s only moi!

Happy Monday..
