Life File: Weekend Reads, Finds and Updates

This week was probably the first week I went without blogging and it wasn’t because I planned it that way, it was my internet service at Mexico that forced me to 🙁 Getting back into the swings of things and planning some content around my experience in Mexico, what I packed, some tips, and working on including some fitness content here 🙂

Today Canada turns 150 years and I’m incredibly proud to call myself canadian, what a blessing! I’m headed to a bbq later today and another one tomorrow afternoon, so it’s going to be a fun weekend 🙂 Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend, happy Canada day and happy 4th of July!

. For us Canadians, J.Crew is offering 30% off our purchase with code OCANADA. Favourites that I highly recommend are these (I’ve been wearing non-stop), this shirt (lightweight and great to wear with denim), this bikini (runs true to size, bought it in small), this (looks great with cut-offs), and this (I showed 3 ways to wear it here). Things that I’m eyeing: this (in stripes too), this and this.

. What a gorgeous dress!
