tabula rasa [tab–yuh–luhrah–suh]: noun. clean slate (Latin)
Happy New Year everyone! I know it’s a little late and I’ve been quite absent on my blog, but I’m back.
Every January 1st, many are categorized as “resolutioners”…you know who you are. January becomes that crazy month where at the gym, fitness classes are overfilled, grocery store lists include only healthy choices and winter running becomes more popular (props to those who keep it up all winter). February comes along and many get lost in work or other commitments and gym/healthy eating plans dwindle away. This year, I’ve decided to take a different approach and focus on self love. I don’t have any resolutions about losing ten pounds, getting a six pack or finding a man, but rather focusing on a healthy, more confident and happy me. I’m going to try and eat clean as much as possible, keep hydrated and active and spend as much time with ‘real’ people as possible. I’ve come to realize that I’d rather quality over quantity when it comes to friends.
If I had to give you three resolutions for myself for this year, they would be as follows:
1. flossing everyday
2. making my bed on a daily basis
3. drinking 8 glasses of water per day
Stay tuned for more blog posts coming soon. I’m looking to add new weekly segments on clean and healthy eating, fitness and motivation and continue on with my favourite fashion posts.

I leave for NYC next Friday. I’m ecstatic. My mum surprised me on my birthday with a mother-daughter getaway to NYC for three days. I was so happy and surprised I cried while reading the card, while my family was singing happy birthday to me and when saying thank you to my mum. I really do have the best mother anyone could ask for. My mum has already booked our hotel, rented bikes to ride through Central Park and booked a limousine (I’ll feel like I’m Chuck Bass) to drive us back to the airport on Sunday. We’ve started to plan our trip and have come up with our top ten list of things we’d like to do and see. I think the one thing I want to do most is see Central Park; I’ve dreamed of walking through the grounds since I was much younger and feeding the birds (like Blair Waldorf).
Where are some places you’d recommend I check out?
