Announcing Our 7 Days of Wellness Giveaway!


Are you kicking your New Years Resolutions in high gear? Are you focusing on your own personal wellness journey this year? Girl, I hear you. February is the new January and I’m setting a whole new set of goals to achieve for the rest of this month and next.

To celebrate, I’ll be giving away a cool wellness-related prize for the next 7 days! We have gear from David’s Tea, Sodastream, Shoppers Drug Mart, Saje, Indigo and more to help you along with your own personal wellness journey.

I decided not to make New Years resolutions this year and thought I would set three mini goals each month related to my health and wellness to achieve. I feel like breaking things down into smaller tasks makes things seem less overwhelming and easier to do.

So yes, I’ll be dragging my butt back to the gym after taking a break this past Christmas and I’m aiming to cook more and eat healthier and am assuming a lot of you might also be coming off the sugar cookie high and feeling the same way.

We are kicking Day 1 of our wellness giveaway THIS coming Monday! So mark your calendars and get ready to win. You’ll have 7-10 days to enter each contest and a new giveaway will launch daily (not counting weekends) for 7 days.

No purchase is necessary and we will have a mix of wellnesss giveaways open to US and Canadian readers. Start by subscribing to our weekly newslettter and following us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Good luck + see you Monday!

Updated January 9th, 2017.

During my seven-year career as a DJ, I had the chance to work and attend 400+ weddings all over Toronto and the GTA. I’m always paying close attention to the food, service and how well I am treated (even as a staff member – these are the people who will sing your praises). A few of them stand out in my mind, so I’m sharing my most favourite and unique wedding venues in Toronto as an industry-insider:

Happy Holidays from This Beautiful Day!

I can’t believe Christmas is almost here!

It’s a race to the finish line for us as we are closing on our new house just a few days before Christmas. I am super excited to move in, get decorating and finally figure out what we need to get this place up and running on airbnb.

I’ll be taking a small blogging break to rest, recharge and strategize for 2017. I’m always panicked that my blog traffic will disappear – but it turns out everyone is out-of-the-office and relaxing with friends and family as well!

I decided to take a blogging break every year because I find I’m completely refreshed and ready-to-go when January rolls around. Look for new blog posts coming your way on Monday January 2nd, 2017. (more…)
