Getting Fit

My boyfriend recently surprised me with a Fitbit Surge watch which I have been wearing everyday. I love that I can track just how many steps I take in a day and that I can challenge others to meet their goals by going head-to-head. The ease of tracking your exercise is as easy as putting on your watch in the morning. The Fitbit Surge does have an awesome feature though, it has a sleep tracker embedded in the watch which allows you to see how restless you are at night.

For the love of tea!

I love tea, especially in the wintertime. It gets so cold up here in Canada that drinking tea has become a daily ritual for me! Green teas, black teas, white teas... I love all varieties but have been especially obsessed with the Hōjicha (Houjicha) (ほうじ茶) that my dad brought back from Japan. It's a roasted green tea that has a lower amount of caffeine and is often used as an after-dinner tea to help aid with digestion in Japan. Made from the leaves, this brown looking tea tastes nutty and is a good accompaniment to sweets. I prefer its mild flavour as I don't generally like bold tastes, especially when I'm cooped up inside reading!

Brand Spotlight: Giddy Yoyo

I was wandering around my local supermarket and noticed something new in the aisle. I've been trying to find a more natural body cream as I had just run out of my Vaseline Shea Butter and absolutely loved the consistency, potency and smell of the product. By wandering the health and beauty section of the store, I thought that I'd find something natural yet similar to what I already know I like. That's when I was introduced to the brand, Giddy Yoyo.
