Blune Day 8: Lets talk: Doubt

We have all known about the classic runners body for years, slim hips, small chest, long legs. None of which I have. Women are constantly bombarded with images of who is the ideal fitness person, who the ideal runner is, who can run, that only certain bodies can exercise, that if you are a bit …

Things I liked and Did in May

May was such an interesting month. I turned 23, I got my degree awarded and I saw my wee Buttons this month. I discovered a few things makeup wise, got to see my bestie, and visit home. This month I have been loving podcasts, Full Coverage and Breaking Beauty are two of my personal favourites. …

Running: the Winter Edit

The main question I get from non-runners: how do you run in the snow? How do you run in the cold? And it got me thinking, how do I run in the cold? I have grown up with a mother who ran in -30 at 5:30 am with a head lamp...so you could say I …

Last Minute Gift Guide

This post is my very first gift guide. This year I didn’t really want much, or need much! As I was perusing the malls and the internet for presents for family and friends I realized I was trying to find meaningful gifts and coming up short, because its hard in our consumer society to find …
