Little Watermelons On My Feet



New Balance found here at the Hudson Bay
I'm gearing up for my trip to Toronto to visit a friend and what better way to explore the city with a pair of New Balance shoes? Only two weeks left to map out where I want to go, what I want to see and where to eat. Feel free to let me know what your favourite spots are in the city. I can't wait to walk through the busy streets and stroll through the parks. My feet will thank me for buying these comfy and cute  shoes.

Toronto definitely has some of the coolest furniture/decor shops and I'm looking forward to doing some mad browsing. I also need to do some research on outdoor markets and maybe meet some local artists. Hopefully there will be plenty of sunshine for the occasion. 

Enjoy the day! xx

Spring Root Vegetable Salad


My fiancĂ© was cooking up a storm this past week. I have rarely eaten so healthy during the week which got me to look up new recipes online myself. There are a thousand ways to prepare a salad and I thought I'd try something I've never done before. I picked up a "V-slicer" and "mandolin-ed" my way through radishes, beets, carrots and turnips… and made a root vegetable salad. It's got a nice crunch to it and the vivid colors are a fun way to spice up that traditional green salad. 

The recipe I tried can be found here (via Bon AppĂ©tit). I didn't have any hazelnuts, but it turned out just as good. 

I can proudly say that no fingers were injured on the mandolin… now on to the sweet potato… for some chips!

Have you been putting extra effort to eating healthy lately? 

Have a lovely Sunday afternoon! xx
