I’ve been in Toronto for two weeks now and I’m loving it! Of course, I miss the sunshine and the warmth, but the daily walks to Starbucks more than make up for it =) Admittedly, it’s taking some time to settle into the new place, especially since our sea container shipment hasn’t arrived yet. But today, something far more important will land on my doorstep…my dog!
With golf season officially here, make this your year to get out there and finally learn how to play! A few weeks ago, Bre provided some useful tips on managing the golf course for beginners. Did you know that you don’t need to keep score or even hit every shot? Check out her post here.
Now that you know what to do when you get to the course, here is a basic list of everything you’ll need to be prepared for your round. Don’t worry, there’s no fancy golf paraphernalia required!
So with exercise everyone must go through the same ups and downs that I go through, right? Some weeks I become obsessed with exercising; I feel energized and have an enormous craving to workout. But then I’ll also have days where all I can think about is sleep and the idea of getting up early for a 5am run is just torturous. This week was my obsessive week. I was meant to go to CrossFit on Tuesday, but instead I felt this strong need to run. I couldn’t shake the feeling. So I went with it and skipped CrossFit for a few miles on the road. Not a bad trade off, and I have to say afterward I felt amazing.
We were in NYC recently staying very close to Madison Square Garden, home of the Knicks and Rangers, and knew we had to show our love for sports with a fashion post on one of our favorite trends – sporty chic! Pairing tennies with a cute skirt or dress, throwing on a baseball cap with skinny jeans and heels, it’s so easy to be creative and come up with a gorgeous outfit that makes comfy, casual attire look absolutely fabulous.
The big day has arrived! I moved back to Canada yesterday and I’m waking up in Toronto this morning. It’s definitely surreal to look out my window and not see the palm trees that greeted me every day. However, I am incredibly excited to start my new adventure in the city!
At a party this past weekend, a friend of mine told me that she was interested in playing golf, but was running into a problem. She played a little as a kid, but, now in her late twenties wanting to take it up again, doesn’t feel she’s good enough to play a round at a golf course. She wants to get better and will take some lessons, but also wants to get the experience playing a round will give her.
“If playing golf is suppose to help me get better, how do I get better if I’m not good enough to play the course?”
It’s Friday, Masters weekend, AND our new hats have arrived!
I love watching the Masters, but I’m not really sure who to root for. I like too many players – Phil Mickelson, Bubba Watson, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, and Jason Day, to name a few. It’s going to be a great weekend for golf, so to celebrate (break out the Champagne!) we’re giving away one of our brand new hats for FREE!
But first, let me share with you my five favorite things of the week!
