lmao i remember this day VIVIDLY!!! @laurakidd and i took blog pics at the experimental farm on the coldest day of the damn year (-30 something w the windchill) but we got the job done!!!! the level of dedication i once had for my blog was unreal. it’s hard to believe i haven’t blogged since april but i haven’t had the motivation to keep it up lately tbh. it makes me sad, but it’s still there and i know i can come back to it whenever i’m feeling inspired. thanks for sticking with me regardless. hope to have new content or whatever up in the new year!! ✌🏻💖

I am trying to incorporate more upperbody exercises in my routine while still building 🍑. This is probably my new fav exercise cause it’s working legs, arms, shoulders and abs. Key component is to focus on stability over speed, keep your biceps close to your ear and embracing your core. 3x12 each side. Allllssoooo, let me telllll you that my glutes are crying today from yesterday’s burnnnn 🔥
2018 is almost behind us but we are keeping our minds present and breathing gratitude for all the memories, achievements and lessons we learned along the way this year. ⠀
What was your 2018 highlight and some of the big wins for you this year?
When you want to indulge in a whole cheesecake, but don’t wanna be judged so you just get the mini cheese tart 👀😂
STILL GOOD THO !!! 🥰 (new location @ Fairview mall coming soon!)Thank you @pablo_cheese_tart_canada & @node.app for making our hungry exam-filled tummies happy!
Today all 3 of my kids and husband ate their dinner without one single complaint 🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 This rarely happens haha #momwin We had sausages, carrots and potatoes and it was delicious! Whats a meal at your house that gets a 👍🏻 from all family members? Let me know in the comments below. Bonus points if it’s healthy 🥦 #mazzonecrew#whatsfordinner#pickyeaters
I have gotten so many questions about staying on my eating routine while I travel so I’ve put together some of my fave tips below.... I don’t keep to my perfect routine but I have learned a few tips with all the back and forth that may help you this holiday season. —
⭐️Pack snacks on the go and bring food to the airport. People think you can’t bring your own food but it’s just liquids. If you are planning to eat a salad on the plane, they never say anything to me 🤷🏼♀️ —
⭐️Be the one to suggest restaurant and new healthy spots to explore. If you leave it up to someone else they may pick something that will leave you lost for what to eat. I also look up roadside or airport favourites before hand and know which have salads or veggie burgers I can stop at so I’m not lost. —
⭐️Find a market or grocery store near you and make it part of your travel to discover new foods and brands that fit your routine. —
⭐️Bring along to go sizes of your fave products like @vitalproteins collagen or @renewlife to go probiotics! —
⭐️ Learn what makes your body bloat and stay away from it while traveling just to make the whole process easier. As it is travel will bloat you! —
⭐️Drinks lots of water - like a ton. No matter how you plan you will always be consuming things out of the ordinary so get on your water consumption to flush out extra sugars and salts. —
⭐️Don’t forget your vitamins. Just a few days without will leave your body off especially if they help regulate you or your mood. —
⭐️ Drink less caffeine when you travel. It’s stressful enough especially this time of year. I find adding more caffeine into the mix can leave me antsy while traveling so I go for herbal teas. —
⭐️ If possible order stuff to hotel or where you’re staying before your arrival. Healthy snacks, small sizes of your fave products. I always do this 🙈 —
⭐️⭐️MOST IMPORTANT⭐️⭐️ decide you will be eating a few things out of the ordinary routine. Once you’ve made the decision you won’t be so stressed by running astray from the usual salad and smoothie go tos. Stressing will only make it worse. You’re human. Everything in moderation is the key to successful health.
Strawberry Daifuku and Mont Blanc mini cheese tarts at 📍@pablo_cheese_tart_canada
So many flavours of mini cheese tarts, its too hard to just have one! The size of their regular cheese tart is perfect for sharing (in the next picture) but these mini cheese tarts are excellent as a quick and satisfying snack 😋
They have recently opened a new location in North York at Fairview Mall! #pablocheesetart

Movie Night! The boys love to watch a family movie, pop some popcorn and munch on some snacks! One of our favourite things to do it to put some treats into our popcorn. Tonight we tried the @hersheyscanada Gold Bar! And the boys loved it. I had to stop myself from eating to many but the sweet and salty crunch is too good. 🙈 #GoldIsIn#complimentary @hersheyscanada @Influensterca
This cafe on Beacon Hill is truly a gem! My matcha latte was perfect & I really enjoyed all the pastries that I got for dine-in as well as take-out 🙈 I couldn’t resist all the goodies that @tattebakery had displayed out - everything looked and smelled so scrumptious! It was hard to pick just one item to try 😋
Featured here is the Matcha Latte & Passionfruit Krembo for me and Hot Chocolate & Lemon Mint Tart for him 💛
Thank you @jacqbakedgoods for the recommendation! 😻
I really haven’t been myself lately. End of the year always makes me feel some type of way. Thinking about all the things I could have done, all the places I could have gone to, missed out opportunities, missed play time with my kids. Even though I am proud of what I have accomplished the struggle is still real. Here are two things that have helped so far:
.🔥Daily acts of kindness to myself and others ( purchasing coffee for the person behind me at the drive-thru is my Jam.)
.🔥Giving myself permission to slow down and enjoy the little things.
I don’t have everything figured out just yet, but I am grateful to be able to share a tiny bit of my life with you, grateful to the brands that took and continue to take a chance on me and more importantly for my family and amazing friends. How is the end of the year treating you?
Cheers to the last three weeks 2018! #LTKcurves#LTKunder100#LTKstyletip http://liketk.it/2yL5R @liketoknow.it #liketkit
Checking in at the near midway point of Morley’s 24 Days of Kindness. 🐶 One of her ideas was to feed the animals - so today we decided to show the animals at the local animal shelter some love. When I told her they needed cat food, she responded, “But I like dogs”. Of course. 🤣 So, with our $25 budget, we bought both a bag of cat food AND dog food.🐱 Delivering the food was a success, and I think in the end, the cats at the shelter may have even won her over. [Scroll left to see.] 🐶 Are you participating in #24DaysofKindness with your kids? I’d love to hear some of the tasks they’ve done!
I am 100% an introvert. Kinda weird coming from a blogger right?🤔 I know it sounds a little contradicting but it's true. Today on the blog I'm sharing why being a blogger helps channel my inner extrovert and allows me to break out of my shell ❤️ //www.StephaniesDiary.com// Click link in bio
I am all for those self-care cozy days and @ardene has a ton of cute comfy items that are perfect for days like today! Click the link in my bio to shop their collection and use my code "Allie20" for 20% off #ardenebabe#ad ❄️
happy weekend! ⭐️ Only two more weekends until Santa comes! I cannot believe how fast December is going by, I’m trying to stuff all the Christmas activities I can into each day! ❄️🎄
This is one of my favourite winter hats from @forever21 @forever21canada 💖
Me acting like I’ve never seen snow before. ❄️ I find dressing in the winter so difficult because I live in a place that gets very cold and gets lots of snow, so I usually just want to throw on my parka and walk out of my house like a marshmallow. But it is coats like this one that save me from that fate! .
Who else is in love with this blue coat? #f21xme#f21can @forever21 @forever21canada 💙
