Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

Saturday morning gym sesh: arm day.

I usually do arms (biceps & triceps) on Friday evening but had a birthday party to attend so skipped my workout.  I didn't take any photos at the party, but it was a really cool home-wine-tasting get together with plenty of delicious food as well.  

Post workout brunch at Salt.

We spent Saturday afternoon at our new friend's pad, on the rooftop pool soaking up the last days of summer.  As excited as I am for Fall, I am not looking forward to putting away my sandals and what comes after that (snow, ack!).

Brunch at Salt

Sunday, August 31, 2014

We decided to try out Salt yesterday for brunch, after the gym with a friend and I hadn't planned on sharing this eating out experience, but figured why not.

First off, the restaurant is gorgeous inside and if you're from Ottawa, you know this was formerly a Broadways and very casual.  It's now transformed into a velvet-and-crystal-chanelier chic lounge with beautiful, moody decor, plush arm chairs, a grand piano in the front bar, an open kitchen and completely overhauled bathrooms.

DIY Inexpensive Household Cleaner

Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Okay you guys, I have the best kept secret when it comes to cleaning my shower and I'm sharing it with you here today.

Here's a little back story: I hate cleaning the shower.  Like, hate, hate, hate.  It is probably my most dreaded house-hold chore and before Marco and I moved in together, I would seriously let it go as long as possible (did I actually just confess that on the Internet?!  Ew).  

When we were looking for a place to live, we immediately fell in love with this place but my second thought after seeing the beautiful glass shower was, 'Omigod, I'm going to have to clean that'.  I was cringing before we moved!

Luckily, a good friend shared this 'recipe' with me and I have been cleaning the shower like clockwork every weekend.  This little concoction has turned the task into something that's not so dreadful, plus it doesn't take much elbow grease, it's super cheap and relatively good for the environment.  Win, win, win!

Let's get started.
