Coffee Run

During the weekdays I do not drink coffee -seriously, not a single drop. For some reason, caffeine really affects me and if I have it during my workdays, I find that I can’t sleep that night! A few months ago I had the worst insomnia. I would stay up all night, be exhausted all day, and sip coffee throughout to try to wake myself up. It was a vicious cycle of coffee and no sleep. After discovering that coffee was the culprit behind my sleepless-nights, I nixed it from my diet completely.

This weekend was exactly what I needed: a heaping dose of relaxation, too much good food, and a couple mugs full of good coffee; and like the cherry on top of an ice-cream sundae, I also discovered that Friends was on Netflix which made for a very fun Sunday morning TV marathon. Now that I am feeling so much better, and have nearly kicked this cold to the curb (unfortunately, my colds always end off with an annoying sinus infection - yuck!) it's time to get back on schedule with work, fitness, and diet.

Playing in Plaid

How to Wear a Plaid Button Down

Nothing says “winter” quite like a playful dash of plaid. I realized this a few weeks ago when I spotted this plaid hair bow, and since then plaid has been one of my favourite patterns to wear. I find, it’s a great way to add a more rustic and playful vibe to your look. 

Since our weather this past weekend was anything but winter-like, I paired my plaid printed blouse with  a simple midi skirt to accommodate for the beautiful springy weather. I love weekends like these, when it's surprisingly warm and sunny - and even though it's technically winter, it feels more like we're edging our way into spring.
