Brunch at Salt

Sunday, August 31, 2014

We decided to try out Salt yesterday for brunch, after the gym with a friend and I hadn't planned on sharing this eating out experience, but figured why not.

First off, the restaurant is gorgeous inside and if you're from Ottawa, you know this was formerly a Broadways and very casual.  It's now transformed into a velvet-and-crystal-chanelier chic lounge with beautiful, moody decor, plush arm chairs, a grand piano in the front bar, an open kitchen and completely overhauled bathrooms.

DIY Inexpensive Household Cleaner

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Okay you guys, I have the best kept secret when it comes to cleaning my shower and I'm sharing it with you here today.

Here's a little back story: I hate cleaning the shower.  Like, hate, hate, hate.  It is probably my most dreaded house-hold chore and before Marco and I moved in together, I would seriously let it go as long as possible (did I actually just confess that on the Internet?!  Ew).  

When we were looking for a place to live, we immediately fell in love with this place but my second thought after seeing the beautiful glass shower was, 'Omigod, I'm going to have to clean that'.  I was cringing before we moved!

Luckily, a good friend shared this 'recipe' with me and I have been cleaning the shower like clockwork every weekend.  This little concoction has turned the task into something that's not so dreadful, plus it doesn't take much elbow grease, it's super cheap and relatively good for the environment.  Win, win, win!

Let's get started.

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, August 25, 2014

Outfit deets:  Jacob sweater, Joe's Jeans denim, Guess heels (new!), The Bay necklace, Michael Kors & Joe Fresh bangles.

On Friday I headed straight to my Grandparent's place for dinner to celebrate my sister's birthday.  We had a great dinner and then I stayed a while after to visit with my grandparents and Aunt who was in from out of town.  I snapped a pic with my sis and my nephew but she asked me not to share it online so here is my outfit instead.

Afterwards, around 9pm, I went to the gym and had a great arm workout and threw in some abs.  I slacked on the gym last week so made it a priority to get there on Friday night.

Outfit deets:  90 Degree by Reflex tank, Lululemon shorts (I bought these off my bestie who only wore them once and found them too short; they are the 2.5 inch), Puma shoes, Lululemon bag & Gucci sunnies.

On Saturday morning, Marco and I headed to the gym together.
