It's official, I am back, blogging and happy to be at it again! After a 3 year hiatus I thought it was time to put my blogging cap back on. I work full time now as a personal trainer so that plays a role in some of the work I'll be doing on the new blog. The focus will be fitness, personal style, and food, so basically all of my passions in one place. I am really excited and have missed the awesome blogging community I've been a part of! Head on over to www.smittenlife.ca to check out the new digs

Everytime I go to Vancouver, I can't resist heading down to Kits beach to enjoy the sun, the ocean and the gorgeous view of downtown. My brother used to live close to here so we would always walk down, it's such a great place to spend the day reading a book or soaking up the sun. I haven't been to Vancouver in the summer in way too long, I think I am going to plan a roadtrip so I can enjoy the ocean properly.
This plaid dress was a fantastic purchase made at the beginning of January. It's super comfortable and is such a fantastic pattern; I can never get enough plaid. The nice weather had me more than happy to bust out my denim jacket. I think for the summer I'm going to get another one in a lighter shade, because they go with everything.

Good morning! I know for a lot of people have an aversion to going to the gym or working out alone, I know it can be incredibly intimidating. But there are other options!
Joining a co-ed sports team or a beer league is a great way to round up a group of friends and get some physical activity once or twice a week and have a good time. It's a great way to break up your activity if you are a regular gym goer as well, I look forward to my soccer Sundays every single week because I have a great team of girls!
Another fun way to get involved in fitness with friends would be taking a class together, drop in on a boot camp, a flow yoga class or something like that. You could end up finding something you really love to do.

It wouldn't be a trip to Vancouver without exploring Gastown and meandering all over downtown. It doesn't matter how many times I've been there it's always fun and always offers up something new. And there is always a few grunge worthy back alleys to serve as a back drop for outfit photos.
I find myself not wanting to look as girly as I used to, I don't know whether that will change once to sun comes out and the flowers blossom. Or maybe I've just changed, either way I'm totally embracing more simple outfits, and am okay with wearing edgier less feminine pieces. I find I feel more myself these days, I think that may have something to do with finding my passion in life, I don't feel like I'm looking to other inspirations other than my daily life. Funny how that works isn't it?
Also coming home from Vancouver always leaves me feeling inspired :)
