WOD

This was actually yesterday's WOD but I did not get around to posting it until this morning. Anyway, here it is:

Warm-Up:
1/2 mile run 
Max handstand hold

Workout:
AMRAP in 10 mins of:
10 box jumps
10 sit-ups with dumbbell
10 burpees

*NOTE: If performing at home, be careful with the box jumps and ensure that your "box" is sturdy. I unfortunately had an unsteady table topple over on me yesterday during the workout. Still got up and completed it though!!

Finish off with:
Max handstand hold
1/2 mile run (as hard as you can)

Cool down by walking and doing a quick stretch afterwards.

The one that's broken

Yesterday's outfit. I am loving fall! These are my favourite pair of pants- I love anything bedazzled or glittery, so these do it for me. Plus they are high-waisted, so it is the perfect combo!
These fabulous pants were $10 from H&M! The blue crop top was $5 from Urban Planet. The jean jacket is from Gap (quite a few years old but still good as new.. I would definitely suggest investing in one of these)! I am a frugal shopper and typically only purchase items that are on sale or greatly priced, but there are a few staple items in my closet that I paid a little more for, but have gotten SO much use out of. This jean jacket (which is a total necessity to any wardrobe in my opinion) was probably around $50, but I have had it for atleast 4 or 5 years. Yes...I have not grown much, so this works to my advantage when shopping haha.

Fall is in the air

This is yesterday's outfit! It was perfect for a nice fall day on a Sunday afternoon. I just can't believe that is is fall already! Last week I was wearing shorts, this week I'm wearing sweaters and boots. Craziness. If you like this look, hype below!
The very comfy and cute sweater is from Forever 21. I love anything loose and baggy, especially in the fall with leggings- comfort is key! The headband and accessories are also from Forever 21! The leggings are from Primark. The boots were purchased a few years ago from The Shoe Company. I must say, they have gotten a lot of use over the years from many of my family members, and are still in good shape.

September tingz

This has been my first post in a while- September has been a crazy busy month so far! Here's a quick update on what has been happening :) 

For labour day weekend, our family went on a roadtrip to Bissells Hideaway! My zio rented out the entire hall, and all day long we barbecued, chatted, and played sports outside. It's a great little place, I used to go all the time as a kid with one of my friends who had a trailer there. There's a large pool with slides and a play place for kids, an arcade room, horseback riding, zip lining, wall climbing, paddle boating, and a tuck shop! I had a blast from the past, when I got tiger stripe icecream from the tuck shop. It was seewwwww go0o0od!! 



After returning from our getaway, I spent my efforts on perfecting my barista abilities. Have I mentioned that owning a cute and quaint little coffee shop is like my dream job!? Hahaha. Now I've got the technique down, so I'm one step closer! ;)


Another one of the many things that I did during my blog hiatus was dyeing my hair!! For the first time! Virgin hair no more! Although it didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped, I couldn't be happier!

I was going for this: 


And ended up with this:


Not bad for my first dye job ever right!? I must admit that I was quite timid, so I think my downfall was that I did not use enough dye on my hair... But the result was very natural looking so I'm quite happy! It depends on the lighting, sometimes it looks lighter than others. Also, my hair looks a bit ratty in the above picture but this is due to me being in the car for 4 hours haha not from the dye!!


Perks of doing it myself
* I can choose how I want it to look
* only I am to blame if it turns out horribly
* Did not use any bleach- was only a colour!! No harsh chemicals!
* was able to watch bachelor in paradise while waiting for the dye to finish colouring my hair 
* only $15!!!!! HUGE SAVINGS 

Maybe I should go into hairdressing??? So many career paths to choose from haha ...

The last week I spent in Kingston and I was very occupied helping out with CrossFit Queen Street! As busy as my visit was, it was nice to get away! I'll have a separate post dedicated to that though- to come soon :)

Winona Peach Festival!

What an exciting weekend it has been! It was the one and only Winona Peach Festival! One of my favourite times of the year. I unfortunately didn't spend as much time at the festival as I would have liked, but I was still able to get my favourite treats in!

For those of you who don't know.. Panzerolli's are a thing. They are the best. It is basically a panzerotti but bite sized. And if you are not sure what a panzerotti is, it is pizza inside out (the cheese and sauce is in the middle of a pizza ball)! 

In addition to these delicious treats, I got my absolute favourite... The famous peach sundae!!! It is a huge cup of homemade vanilla icecream with slices of local fresh peaches topped with whip cream. It is to die for!!!


As always, I look forward to next year and hope I'll be able to catch "The Practically Hip" since I missed their show this time around. Hahaha

Bang Bang

Today's look! I'm sure I have mentioned this many times before, but I am a huge socks with sandals kind of girl. So whenever I have the chance to wear socks with heels, I go for it!
