Dixie + Twine

I love having fun party decorations on hand. Any time I see cute plates, banners, cups, anything really- I snap them up and hoard them in my basement until our next soiree. I love the fun stuff that Dixie + Twine makes. Her cheeky banners and gorgeous party supplies are perfection.

I'm such a sucker for glitter!

Playoff Workout

I'm still suffering from a bit of pelvic pain and I've had to switch up my usual workout routine. No more spin, yoga or walking for any longer than 20 minutes at a time means I've had to get a bit creative. In addition to swimming, I've come up with a workout I can do at home in between periods of Flames playoff games- which have typically been happening every couple of days. We're in Toronto this week where the games don't start until 10pm (!!!), but it can be easily adapted to do during TV commercial breaks as well.

Each break:

20 pelvic tilts
15 squats with shoulder press
20 of each:

15 weighted squats
1 minute plank

repeat once

I've been using 5lb weights, but use whatever you're comfortable with.

Go Flames Go!
