Raw, Organic, & Delicious: Greenhouse Juice Co.


If you are looking for something 100% organic, raw, and absolutely delicious, look no further! Toronto is home to four Greenhouse Juice locations and I visited the first location to ever open up for a delightful juice flight (tasting). We were taken through the 5 types of juices offered, Cold-pressed juices, Handmade Nut Milks, Smoothies, Waters, and Boosters, with explanations about each type of juice and what the benefits are. 

What is a cold-pressed juice

It’s the healthiest way to make juice. It means using hydraulic pressure to extract juice from plants without denaturing enzymes or breaking down nutrients with high levels of heat or oxygen. Our hydraulic presses coax every colourful, delicious drop of liquid from our organic ingredients while keeping their health-giving properties intact, for a raw juice that stays alive for 72 hours.

Check out some of my personal favourite juices below!





East of Eden - A type of cold-pressed juice with Romaine, Kale, Celery, Apple and a hint of Lemon. 
Benefit: Digestive aid, heart healthy, cholesterol fighting, and detoxifying. 




Chia Seed Hydrator - Alkaline Water, Chia Seeds, Lemon, and Maple Syrup.
Benefit: Omega-3 boosting, energizing, rich in fibre and protein. 



One of my personal favourites was Alpha - Butternut Squash, Red Pepper, and Orange. 
Benefit: Anti-oxidizing, heart healthy, and immunity boosting.




For all you chocolate lovers, there is Choco-Maca Milk - Almond Milk, Cacao, Maca.
Benefit: Anti-oxidizing, adrenal support, and energizing.



Our lovely juice flight host, Hanna James who took us through all the juices! Thank you Hanna!





If you haven't already been to the amazing Greenhouse Juice Co. be sure to visit one of their four locations and try the healthiest juices out there! Ask as many questions as you possibly can as they are so helpful and will lead you to right type of juices for you. 

Also check out their juices online for more in-depth info! 

A special thanks to Emma Knight and Hanna James for hosting us.

It's All About That Tree.



It's exactly two weeks until the best time of the year...Christmas!!! 

I don't know how everyone else feels about Christmas, but for me personally, I even love it slightly more than my own birthday! I don't know if it's about the time spent with loved ones, or the music we hear everywhere, or the massive amounts of food we eat during the holidays, but Christmas is a beautiful time, and I enjoy every bit of it. I just completed decorating my tree, which yes, takes a few days. I'm very particular about where each ornament is placed.

I hope everyone has an amazing Christmas and holiday season!

Keeping Cozy with Ponchos.







Poncho Spain  |  Leather tights Florida  |  Over-Sized Clutch French Connection  |  Fedora French Connection 


Extremely chic and fabulous poncho's are what's keeping me warm this winter! I picked up this woollen poncho on my travels to Spain this summer, and I can't tell you how much I love it. I am seeing poncho's everywhere this season! Lots of fabulous, printed ones! I almost wish I picked up a few more in Spain, however, with all my other purchases, there was no way I could've brought back anymore! Poncho's are great to throw over anything. They can be worn for any occasion, from casual to even an evening dinner. Throw it over your holiday dress to keep warm, and remove it once you arrive at the party. This way you aren't showing up with huge, puffy-like jackets over your gorgeous gown.


Happy Monday everyone!! Have a fantastic week!

My Holiday Gift Guide.


Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year! It is the only time I'm more accepting of snow and actually, don't mind it. But only when I'm indoors, of course! I am one of those people who get extremely excited when I hear Christmas music in November and see decorations in October. I have to admit, I love it! 

I am also one of those people who do their Christmas shopping way ahead of time so that I don't have to go near a mall during the month of December! I find Christmas shopping super relaxing and fun. However, for some, Christmas shopping can be a nightmare and very stressful. 

I've put together my Holiday Gift Guide for you. Those who are last minute shoppers, can benefit from this!

Enjoy!





FOR THE DAD'S:


Jonathan Adler Men's socks - $38.00. The perfect stocking-stuffer for Dad!


FOR THE BOOK LOVER:

Head over to Chapters for a great selection of books for any type of book lover! If you don't know which book to get, grab a gift card!


FOR THE MUM'S OR MUM-IN-LAW'S:

Whether this is for your own mum, or mother-in-law, this wooden cutting board would be a hit! She would love this Mario Batali by Dansk Teak Cutting Board from Bed Bath & Beyond - $49.99


FOR THE FOODIE:

This one is easy! Grab a gift card to which ever restaurant your 'foodie' is into, or even get them something they haven't tried before.


FOR THE HOMEBODY:

There is nothing like cozying up to the scent of your favourite candle. Bath & Body Works has the most amazing Holiday Collection of candles. There is a scent for everyone!


FOR THE FASHIONISTA:

This Kate Spade Wrap Bracelet is perfect for ANY fashionista! It will go with practically anything in their closet. And if it doesn't, I'm sure they will get an outfit that will! $128.00


FOR THE SPORTS JUNKIE:

This category can always be a bit tough. Don't sweat it! I can't think of any sports junkie who wouldn't want a pair of game tickets. Prices range from high to low, so go with whatever fit's your budget. 



I hope these were helpful to some of you! Remember, Christmas isn't really about all the gifts you give and receive, but more about spending the Holiday's with family and loved ones.

I hope everyone has a fantastic, blessed, and safe Christmas!

Outfit of the Day: More Fringe.









Jacket Spain  |  Pants Zara  |  Shoes Zara


This season I have been so obsessed with fringe, I can't count how many pieces I have purchased with fringe on them! I'm absolutely in love with this jacket I picked up on my recent travels to Spain. This particular jacket was bought in Madrid. Super comfy and super chic, of course! It can be worn dressed up or dressed down. I paired this fabulous jacket with a casual tank, and threw on my favourite printed, pair of pants. To add some colour in the mix, are these gorgeous open-toe sandals. I know what you're thinking...it's too cold for these open-toe beauties. I did shoot this outfit about a month ago when the snow wasn't on the ground as yet. Now i'll have to wait till summer to bust these shoes out again. 

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!

Outfit of the Day: Red Pumps & Leopard Print.








Sweater H&M  |  Shoes Aldo


Happy Tuesday everyone! I think winter is officially upon us. There is no turning back at this point. As much as I would love to wear this outfit just as it is, without having to cover the whole thing up with the winter jacket, I unfortunately can't! Add a pop of colour to your wardrobe by throwing on a pair of sexy red (or any other colour) heels, and maybe even do a red lip. Why not? Just because it's winter, doesn't mean we can't still add some colour in our lives. 

Take this outfit from casual to dressy by pairing the sweater with a knee length skirt or just throw on a blazer over the sweater. I may even do some variations of the outfit on the blog soon.

A Visit To Saje Natural Wellness.


There is nothing I love more than natural products with minimal or no harsh chemicals in them. I'm not saying that I only use 100% natural products, but I would like to introduce more of them into my life. When I came across the Saje Natural Wellness store, which recently opened up at Square One Shopping Centre, I was absolutely in awe by it! Not only was it a gorgeous looking store, but it smelled fantastic! It is the first store to open up in Ontario, and there are many more locations opening up. I got very excited about how lovely the store was, and thought to myself  'this has to go on the blog!' 

The store is full of amazing products for all different types of health issues, from simples headaches to bigger things, like sleep issues. 

The experience visiting the store was so wonderful as the staff really know their product knowledge and are very passionate about the story of Saje:

"Our product line has expanded to include hundreds of different natural wellness products, accessories, and healthy gift ideas. We have a strong commitment to honesty, integrity, and impeccable quality, and for years now we have strictly maintained that all Saje products contain only 100% natural ingredients, for your best health!"



A full wood exterior and interior finish. Gives it that very natural, rustic, look to the store.





Essential oils for very type of health issue. There are tons of different smells to suit any kind of person. 





The 'Aroma Bar,' where you can open up any of these bottles to sniff the scents. Once you choose the right scent for you, you can pick it out on the shelf.



After sniffing these bottles for 20 minutes, I think I finally figured out what was for me!



These are Nebulizers. They clean the environment in any room, letting in fresh scents of the essential oils you choose. This can calm a room, add good energies to a room, or even make you sleepy, depending on the type of oil you use.



These are 100% natural soy wax candles, that also have essential oils in them.




They have many different products that have the essential oils in them. These are roll-on scents. You can roll a little on your wrists to help calm or heal you throughout the day. 




"Wherever your travels take you, take me with you" Travel Kit.



The have a ton of natural skin care products. Everything from your face, hands, neck, and body.



They even have this amazing DIY back massager! I couldn't get enough of this!



Stuck on Christmas gifts?? Saje has got you covered! They have so many wonderful stocking stuffers that are on sale and perfect for anyone! Who wouldn't want some of this natural goodness? 

Check out their Holiday Gift Guide for some amazing gifts!



Special thanks to Michelle Gordon & the entire team at Saje for accommodating this shoot.
