Spring Hit List: Playful and Colourful Activewear
You have to get up every morning and tell yourself, “I can do this” - unknown

Did you all feel that? It was the tease we've had after this crazy winter; a little bit of sunshine and a little bit of warmth. The snow started to puddle and the ground started to thaw. Spring! I feel you in my bones. It's no wonder then that the urge to hit the ground running couldn't be held in. The weather was brief but I got out in time, to enjoy my first big run of 2014 and damn did it feel great. The grass was muddy, the trails were soaking but as I ran, I smiled, because ladies and gentlemen, Spring is right around the corner.

If you're anything like me, I keep to a pretty strict gym routine. However, there is nothing that compares to calling up friends and getting a game of baseball together or going for a bike ride, playing catch in our backyard or going for a run. Like most of us, I'm sure you're ready to get out of hibernation. This winter has been long and drawn out and waaaaaaay too cold to do much, so let's celebrate the changing of the seasons and get active! First things first, I need some new gear (obviously!).

Spring Fashion: Accessories You Will Love
Even if everything else is downplayed, I'll wear good shoes“ - Tori Amos

I'm a fan of basics. I like to wear dark skinny jeans or neutral skirts, usually paired with a simple, well fit top, most likely in black or grey. This is how I dress because it allows me to always stay on trend by just changing out my accessories and shoes. There is nothing like pulling together a look that will stand out in any crowd just from the whimsy of a necklace and great pair of heels. The beauty of accessories is that they don't need you to be a size 6 or 5'11, you don't need to have a backside like a Kardashian or abs like Jillian Michaels, accessories just let you, be you.

This winter has made me go a bit stir crazy, I loved the idea of cozy toques and riding boots but gone are the days of looking cute in my parka and Team Canada mittens. I need to wear high heels instead of wool lined boots and trade fuzzy scarves for those made of silk, swap turtle necks for big bold necklaces and carry a clutch instead of a shoulder bag. It's coming, SPRING IS COMING! So you better be prepared from head to toe.
