With the warmer weather finally upon us, I’ve decided to create a refreshing, thirst-quenching smoothie perfect for those beautiful days outdoor…. oh I can’t wait!
- 2 big slices watermelon
- 8 strawberries
- 1.5 cups almond milk
- 1 lime
- Blend all ingredients well
- Garnish with mint
- Serve cold
I used unsweetened almond milk for this recipe. You can choose the sweetened version, or simply add a bit of honey to make your smoothie sweeter!
This beautiful drink will help your body maintain a proper balance between acidity and alkalinity (pH balance), keep you hydrated, and provide the well needed fibre, antioxidants and vitamins A, B6 and C. Needless to say, this drink is not only pretty and delicious, it is also SUPER beneficial!
Cheers to YOUR health!
It’s the final day of my 3 Day Quote Challenge!
Thank you Anushka Hazra of Vogue & Vibes for this nomination – I absolutely LOVED doing it!
My quote for today:
Too often we worry about everything before it even happens. We worry HOW we are going to do something. HOW will I do this? HOW will this happen? HOW will I manage? HOW is this possible? Oh, I am so guilty of that!
But….this quote is such a strong reminder to simply take that first step. Have your vision, your dream, whatever your working towards….keep that in your mind and take that first step. If you don’t, you will never know, right? But if you do, it might just lead you to that destination.
You don’t have to know the HOW. Just know what your goal is and the final outcome you are hoping for and have faith!
Take that first step today!

It’s Day 2 of my 3 Day Quote Challenge!
I was nominated for this fantastic challenge by Anushka Hazra of Vogue & Vibes and I am happily participating!
Here is today’s quote:
There are so many naysayers in this world who often try to tell us what’s possible and what isn’t!
I know that in my own life, I have met so many people who were very quick to try to convince me that a path I have chosen in my life was wrong, or my ideas were not good enough. They basically said ‘you can’t do that’, ‘it will never work’, ‘not a good idea’. Even this blog of mine met with many negative comments. Yet, the naysayers always have a powerful effect on me – I take their negativity and I prove them wrong. ‘I’ll show you!” is my motto;)
Often, people who are not living to their own full potentional tend to be very closed-minded when it comes to other people’s success.
So, let’s go out there today knowing that anything is possible. ANYTHING. Don’t allow others to rule your ambitions and dreams!
I nominate Chris Lemos for the 3 Day Quote Challenge!
I was nominated for a very interesting challenge – a 3 Day Quote Challenge. You may or may not know, I LOVE quotes. So of course I am participating in this one!
I was nominated by the beautiful and talented Anushka Hazra of Vogue & Vibes.
Rules for this challenge are simple:
- Thank the person who nominated you
- Post a quote for 3 days and explain why it appeals to you
- Nominate bloggers each day!
Without further ado, here is my quote of the day.
I have this quote on a wall in my house and it honestly stops me in my tracks for a few seconds every time I look at it. Because really….isn’t it SO true?!
Life is so short, it really is…. and we sometimes forget to take in the most important moments. I am very guilty of that, even though I try my very best not to do it. I want to sometimes stop time so I can take in the little moments I have with my kids. I don’t want to be so busy with life that I miss out on just simply sitting on the floor with them, talking, building with blocks, snuggling, and enjoying their company.
So, yes, this quote is a reminder to enjoy life, to live fully, to love and be loved. It’s a reminder that there is a greater purpose to life than just living.

Are you nuts about NUTS? Chances are that unless you have a nut allergy, you already know that nuts are super good for you. With the wide variety of nuts available out there, there something for everyone! But – what’s all the hype about? Why are nuts SO good for you?
The Green Bar in Hamilton, Ontario has been on my list of local eateries to visit for quite a while now. They are a quick service cafe which prides itself at being vegan, wholesome and fresh. Fantastic!
