I have an undeniable sweettooth…literally. It took me years to be able to actually say no to desert after dinner. Chocolate was by far my favourite food, and there wasn’t anything more wondrous then chocolate molton lava cake. Well, there still isn’t, but I’ve learned how to control my cravings a little better.
My prime time for craving sweets is at night, after dinner, typically right before I’m about to go to bed. Yes, the worst possible time to indulge in a bunch of sugar. However, after working on my nutrition plan, and discovering new recipes that don’t only fulfill my cravings but also meet the needs of my diet, I’ve found the perfect snack to consume before bed. Without any guilty aftermath!
Only four ingredients, and five minutes of your time, and you will have yourself a delicious, healthy snack that will satisfy that sweettooth!
- 1cup of frozen strawberries
- 1 tablespoon of agave nectar or honey
- 2 tablespoons of plain or vanilla yogurt
- 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Add the frozen strawberries, agave nectar (or honey) , yogurt and lemon juice to a food processor or blender (I used my Vitamix). Blend until creamy.
A food processor will create a creamier yogurt, and a blender will cause it to be slightly more runny.
Anyone who personally knows me, knows that I’m absolutely OBSESSED with candles. I buy candles in bulk…literally. By adding a candle to a room, you’re able to subtly change the overall dynamic that you’re trying to achieve. For instance, tropical scents tend to create a fun and outgoing vibe. I typically use tropical scents throughout the summer season, when I’m having my girlfriends over for afternoon drinks, or getting together before we head out for a night on the town. Scents such as cookies and cream or vanilla are great for a night in watching movies or reading a good book. Lavender scents are perfect for creating a relaxing atmosphere, while having a nice hot bubble bath.
There are countless different brands of candles that I love, but when it comes down to it my all time favourite are from Bath and Body Works. The reason being that 1. Their affordable and they are constantly having great sales, 2. The scent is ALWAYS strong enough to smell throughout the entire room, and 3. The variety of different scents that are available is incredible. Instead having trouble finding one I like, I have trouble narrowing them down.
I’ve put together a roundup of all of my favorite summer scents from Bath and Body works. You’ll also get a sneak peak of how I’ve styled them throughout my home.

As funny as it may seem, the flamingo trend this summer has been my favourite trend of all. I love how it allows me to integrate pops of pink into my outfits! The Ray-Ban Flash Lenses are definitely the perfect “go-to” statement piece this season, and as much as I love the classic MK watches, the Fossil watches have slowly but surely been taking over. However, these white denim jeans by MK are definitely a ‘must-have’!

This romper has become my new best friend. I’ve worn it numerous different ways, from casual to a little more dressy as you can see here. By simply adding a belt and a pair of heels it is easy to create a slightly more formal look. However, by wearing a pair of strappy sandals such as these, and removing the belt (which is covering a draw string), you’re able to develop a “casual chic” appearance.
I love this military green, as it adds a lot of flexibility for accessorizing. I’ve paired it with a Burburry tote, however a simple cross-body purse is also an option.
These shoes are by Steve Madden and are a must have for summer! Find them online at Bigley Shoes & Clothing. The romper is available at Forever 21 for only $17.80!
