About

Joffre Lakes, British Columbia

I’m a digital marketing consultant, writer, photographer, nature lover, hiker, caffeine aficionado and sometimes lapsed student of yoga. I also love nutrition and created this blog to focus on my epic sugar free experiment/challenge. It veers off course from time to time to include my fitness pursuits and, currently, my version of The Happiness Project, but everything I write about is usually related to wellness, fitness and feeling good.

I’m also passionate about redefining society’s definition of beauty. Thinking of ourselves as beautiful, unique people is such a big part of self acceptance and my hope is to make every single one of my readers question the sometimes very twisted information about how we should view ourselves that is being spoon fed to us by the media.

So, my blog is a mixed bag of healthy, sugar free recipes, lots of hiking, yoga and random thoughts on the journey to happiness and loving ourselves. It chronicles all of my experiments in health, happiness, living a creative life and aging as gracefully and happily as possible.

I hope you enjoy.

  1. Greetings!
    I’d like to give you a Liebster Award! I don’t know if you have more than 200 followers (a requirement for the award), but I’d like to bestow it upon you nonetheless. I admire your dedication to healthy eating. I went on a juicing kick because of “Fat,Sick, and Nearly Dead” myself. There is more information about the Liebster Award on my blog under the announcements tab.Here are the 11 questions I’m asking you to respond to should you accept the reward:

    1. What is your favorite seasonal activity?
    2. Who was your first celebrity crush?
    3. Do you collect anything? What?
    4. If time, money, and responsibilities weren’t an issue, what would you do?
    5. What is your drink of choice?
    6. Have you ever used a handkerchief?
    7. What was your go-to childhood candy?
    8. Have you ever gone to a midnight movie showing?
    9. What are your two favorite ingredients to cook with?
    10. What is your favorite sound?
    11. Do you remember what your first purchase? What was it?

    Keep doing great work!

    All the best,
    Emily

  2. Hi Laurel, you have such a beautiful blog, and you had a post on unplugging from social media (something all teenagers should read!), so I’ve nominated you for the Liebster Award. You can accept, or not, as you wish. Any word on how your social media fast is going?

    • Thank you so much! Unplugging is definitely a process with good days and bad days. I’ve cut down a lot and I’m really trying to be mindful of how long I’m online instead of losing 3 or 4 hours in a daze like I used to. It’s not easy but the reward of being really present in real life is so worth it!

  3. Your blog is very interesting. As someone who has struggled with food, I have trouble with reading about nutrition from many people’s standpoints. However your’s is pretty well-rounded. Thanks!

    • Thanks so much! I’m definitely not an expert on nutrition so I usually just point out the benefits of superfoods and try to share some healthy recipes. Food is such a personal thing and I don’t think any eating plan is a one-size-fits-all. Thanks for stopping by the blog 🙂

  4. Hi,
    What’s the best way to contact you regarding a partnership? I can’t seem to find an email address anywhere.
    Thanks
