#KiehlsHalifax Blogger Breakfast Recap

A few weeks ago Atlantic Canada got it’s first Kiehl’s location, and to kick off the grand opening they hosted a Blogger Breakfast Event¬†which I was fortunate enough to be invited to attend.

I had only experienced a couple different one-use Kiehl’s samples in the past so wasn’t super familiar with the brand or it’s products, but was really excited to learn more about them, as well as to get a customized skin consultation.

Of course a breakfast event in the city means an early morning for this valley girl, so bright and early on June 29th, Zoe and I headed into the city to make our way to Halifax Shopping Centre where the new store is located.



The store is beautiful, and the display of breakfast goodies that were awaiting us didn’t look too shabby either. ūüėČ


We arrived a little bit early so had a chance to have a quick look around before the event started.




After a brief welcome, we were split into groups – one group went for skin consultations while the other had a store tour and learned a bit more about the history of Kiehl’s.

For those of you who, like me, are new to the brand, Kiehl’s was founded in New York’s East Village 160 years ago as an old-world apothecary.¬†In the early 20th century they were¬†a full-service pharmacy, offering homeopathic and herbal remedies, essential oils, over-the-counter drugs and the first Kiehl’s products. In the early 1960’s, their pharmacists continued to develop the Kiehl’s product range, utilizing expertise gained from their experience in pharmaceutical manufacturing and chemistry. Today, Kiehl’s is dedicated to serving it’s customers a quality product through its extensive line of skin and hair care formulations.

The Kiehl’s experience supports an active healthy lifestyle¬†and have tested many of their products in extreme conditions (including Mount Everest!).

One of the most recognizable thematic elements of the Kiehl’s stores is the company’s collection of vintage motorcycles on display in their freestanding stores for customers to enjoy.


And it’s no mistake that the motorcycle is located directly across from the men’s section of the store. ūüėČ Way to get the dudes in a skin care store!

The two groups then switched off and I headed over for my skin consultation.


After some testing it was determined that I have both oily and dehydrated skin – which was of no surprise to me, and I was then given a personalized skin care protocol to best suit my skin type and came home with this amazing collection of goodies!


I waited a few weeks to post this recap because I wanted to have time to try all the products before posting so I could tell you which ones are my favourites. I have been using the Calendula Deep Cleansing Foam Face Wash, Calendula Herbal-Extract Toner¬†and Skin Rescuer¬†in place of my usual Clinique 3-step system and have been enjoying the Kiehl’s products so much more! It wasn’t until I went on vacation and took my travel sized Clinque products with me that I realized how much of a difference there was. Even after only washing my face with my Clinique Extra Mild Cleanser my face felt so dry and tight – nothing like how the Calendula Face Wash makes it feel. And since they both cost approximately the same amount that is going to be a very easy switch for me to make! I really like the toner and moisturizer as well and plan on making the switch there as well.

Zoe was telling me on the way to Halifax how much she loves the Midnight Recovery Concentrate and I have to agree, it’s pretty lovely. I haven’t used the Daily Reviving Concentrate much yet as I’m terrible about a morning skin care routine, but I¬†the few times I did use it I was equally as impressed with it.

I’m just going to go ahead and tell you that there have been no products that I’ve tried that I didn’t like. I really enjoyed the Amino Acid Shampoo and Conditioner, I have really oily hair and these did a great job of keeping that oil in check, and the Creme de Corps¬†moisturizer works wonders on my skin.

But I need to take a moment to talk about the Creamy Eye Treatment with Avocado, because this stuff is amazing. I get really dry skin on my eye lids, especially in the summer, they often are noticeably red and can have skin peeling – not something you really want to have. I’ve been using a combination of eye creams from Biotherma and The Body Shop, and while the rest of my eye area stays well hydrated those stubborn patches on my lids just wouldn’t go away. I used the Creamy Eye Treatment TWICE and they were gone, and have not yet returned. I’ve been using this every day now for 2 1/2 weeks and it was just the other day that I finished using the product that was on the inside cover of the bottle. That is how little of it you need, it is completely crazy. And I’m in love.

The other product I am dying to go back and get my hands on is the Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter,


it smells so amazing, and I think all of us who tested it that day are planning to go back and pick it up. And in case you are wondering, yes this smells differently than the Creme de Corps moisturizer I have. That too smells lovely, but not as lovely as this!

Something else to love about Kiehl’s is their “Try Before You Buy” policy, not only are there lots of “try me” products on display within the store, but anyone can get a personalized skincare consultation and receive samples of some of the products recommended for you to try at home!


With Halifax Shopping Centre being one of main shopping destinations in not only Halifax, but Nova Scotia, Kiehl’s has chosen a fantastic location¬†for their first Atlantic Canada store. The next time you find yourself in Halifax, why not pop in and take a look around, and see all this wonderful new store has to offer.

I can assure you – I’m making Kiehl’s a regular stop on my Halifax Shopping Centre shopping list!

Not in the area? Don’t worry – you can still shop Kiehl’s online.

Thank you so much to Kiehl’s for inviting me to the¬†Blogger Breakfast event!

Mud Run Tips: How To Keep Your Sneakers From Falling Off!

If you follow me on social media you already know that last weekend I took to the mud and participated in Mud Hero 2016 at Ski Martock here in Nova Scotia. This was the third mud/obstacle race for me, and while I want to give you a bit of a recap of the day, I also wanted to share with you some important advise on how to keep your shoes on your feet while trudging through mud and muck.¬†There isn’t much worse during a mud run than losing one of your shoes – especially since you may not be able to find it again!

Learn how to tie your sneakers to keep them from falling off during a mud run.

So let’s talk about your shoes before I head into my recap shall we? Keeping your sneakers in your feet is all about how you tie them, and it is easier than you think. What I’m going to show you is called a lace lock, or heel lock.

Have you ever noticed that second hole at the top of your laces? You know, the one you probably have never used and never understood why it existed? We are about to use it!

Step 1: Start with your sneaker on your foot, laced but untied.

Step 2: Loop the end of your lace and thread it through that top hole, making a a loop on the outside of  your sneaker. Repeat on the other side.

Step 3: cross your laces and thread the end of each lace through the hole on the outside on the opposite side.

Step 4: Pull the loose end of your laces downwards to start to tighten the lock.

Step 5: Pull up on the loose end of your laces and continue moving them up and down until you get your desired tightness.

Step 6: Tie your laces. I like to first knot them to ensure they don’t come untied, but that is optional.

The lace lock keeps the top of your sneaker tight around your ankle so that your foot won’t slip out, but you are able to keep the rest of your laces/sneakers a bit more lose so you don’t feel constricted while walking or running making losing your shoe one less thing to worry about on race day!

Now let’s move on to my re-cap!

I wasn’t planning on participating in Mud Hero this year, but a few weeks back I was contacted by Columbia Sportswear¬†(who is one of the main event sponsors) to see if I was interested in participating as one of their influencers. Well I’m a sucker for punishment so I jumped at the chance to have a little fun in the mud!

Because I’m taking a break from running this year, I knew I wasn’t going to try and “race” the event, instead I was going to walk the course and have fun completing the obstacles, so I recruited my friend Catherine to come along with me and keep me company.

As a Columbia Influencer, I was sent an AMAZING package of gear to choose from when it came to the day of the race.


As the day drew near, the weather forecast was a bit up in the air, it was calling for maybe rain, maybe sun – but fairly cool temperatures so I decided to wear both my tank top and long sleeved half-zip since I know I get cold easily.


Did it make me nervous to think about wearing all BRAND NEW gear in a mud race? Yes, yes, it did. Even my husband said it made him want to cry a little thinking about me wearing those brand new hiking sneakers in the mud. But that was the whole point, that Columbia gear is #TestedTough4MudHero so I was really¬†going to be testing that theory! Though when it came down to it, the thought of wearing my beautiful white hat or headband in the mud made me cringe so I was happy when I got to the race site to find out that our “bibs” were actually headbands so I opted to wear that instead of either headpiece from Columbia.

The “before” – looking all cute and clean!


The weather turned out to be perfect for us. We both wore tank tops with another shirt over top and I was the right temperature throughout the race. Not too hot, not too cold. And as it turns out, I was less concerned about getting my sneakers dirty than getting that beautiful light blue long sleeve! But oh boy, did it get dirty.

The race photos came out on Wednesday, and my bib number didn’t pull any but I did find this gem of us on the slide just as we were about to get down. The photo speaks for itself I think, hahaha.

View Photo: http://www.zoomphoto.ca/viewphoto/19766-110-27107830/1/

There were some new obstacles this year but instead of talking you through them, I may as well show them to you. Here is the video walk-through Mud Hero posted on their Facebook page before the event as well as a recap they posted after the race showing you a bit more of the muddy situation I was in by clicking here.

It was certainly the muddiest mud event I’ve been in to date. Oh my, the mud, the mud, the MUD! And needless to say, by the end I was covered from head to toe.



For your viewing pleasure, I saved my SnapChat story from Saturday so you could hear more about the experience!

But let’s talk about how my gear held up in clean up. I didn’t do anything fancy, I came home and cleaned them the best I could with the garden hose, then tossed them in the buckets you saw in the video full of water and a bit of dish soap overnight. Sunday I took them out and put the clothes through one wash in my washing machine (on a cold cycle) and rinsed the soap out of my sneakers and left them outside to dry.

That’s it. No stain remover, no scrubbing, nothing fancy at all.




The verdict? Not a single stain, tear or indication that anything had been literally through the mud pit. I am really impressed! #TestedToughForMudHero indeed!

Thank you so much to Columbia Sportswear for sponsoring me to do Mud Hero this year, it was so much fun and everyone I’ve talked to has been super impressed at how well my gear all held up!

Rounding Out The Fitness Routine

Hey there! Guess what? I’m almost on vacation!!! In just over 24 hours I’ll be off for a full week – I can’t wait!

But before I go, I promised to tell you about part three of my summer (and hopefully beyond) fitness plan to find my {fitness} self after spending so many years focused on the needs of my participants instead of my own.

If you missed the first two posts in the this series you can find them here:

Part 1


Part 2

suzi bike1

And part three is going to be short and sweet (in written word anyway) – strength training.

I cannot tell you the last time I developed or followed a dedicated strength training program for myself. I’ve been strength training with participants in fitness classes for years, but this summer I have the luxury of not teaching any strength based classes and can finally focus on myself instead of others. This is very exciting, and a little scary.

It’s exciting because I’m going to be able to¬†focus on myself, and my workout, instead of worrying about the workout of all my participants, but also a bit scary because like everyone else, I do better when being told what to do workout wise, versus developing and following a plan for myself.

So like any smart person, I’ve sought out help in the form of a training plan I can follow! I’m not going to share what plan I’m using, not because it’s a secret, but because I think everyone needs to find their own way and¬†I won’t know if the plan I’ve chosen is truly the right one for me until I get started next week. If I stick to it and see it through to the end and¬†still like it, then I’ll share what I did, but for now all you need to know is I’ll be working out at home a couple times/week lifting heavy things in addition to my yoga, casual bike rides and fitness classes.

It’s really exiting to me that I’m teaching 6 classes this summer, and that only 2 or 3 really count as a workout for me (since I do more coaching than anything else in the others).

I really hope that this is the summer that I finally put this over training issue that has be dragging me down for years away. 2 hours of cardio, 2-3 strength training workouts and some casual biking and yoga. For once, my weekly workout schedule actually sounds reasonable.

That’s it for me! I had intended to post another monthly book round up before going on vacation, but I’m still reading one of the books I was going to review so instead that will wait until I return on the 12th.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend friends (whether you are in Canada or the USA) and I will talk to you soon!

Healthy Summer Entertaining

Next weekend marks the first true holiday weekend of summer. Here in Canada it’s Canada Day Weekend, and for my US friends it is 4th of July Weekend – and both¬†typically involve picnics, barbecues and fun in the sun.

When you are trying to adopt a healthy lifestyle, these gathering can cause a lot of tension and stress if you are worrying about how to eat well, but still have fun. But eating healthfully and enjoying a family barbecue shouldn’t be two separate things. There are lots of healthy summer dishes you can take along with you to ensure you are getting some healthy nutrition (to go along with your hot dogs and s’mores!) and you never know, you might just spark one of your friends or family members to start moving in a healthier direction too!

I think the problem is that we think that healthy = boring and drab, unhealthy = tasty and delicious. So today I’ve partnered with Snapware ¬†to share with you some fun, different twists on summertime classics that are maybe a bit healthier, and can encourage your friends and family to look at healthy eating in a new way!

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

Snapware makes some great pieces for summer entertaining. In today’s post I am using the¬†Entertain-a-Bowls

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

which are spill-proof serve and store bowls that come in fun summer colours, and the Fruit & Veggie-tainer

4-pc Colander/Bowl set includes one 25.3-cup bowl with matching spill proof cover, removable colander and covered dip container.

which is a 4-piece¬†Colander/Bowl set includes one 25.3-cup bowl with matching spill proof cover, removable colander and covered dip container. But I’ll talk a little bit more about those in a few minutes.

What I’ve tried to do is take some classic potluck/summer staples and put a twist on them to make them a little bit healthier or different. The first is one of my favourite salads – Kale Caesar.

4-pc Colander/Bowl set includes one 25.3-cup bowl with matching spill proof cover, removable colander and covered dip container.

The reason I really like the kale caesar is because the tangy Caesar salad dressing helps to¬†break down the tough fibres of the kale making it more tender and less “kale-y”. And because kale is such a hardy green, you can dress the salad before your get together (I recommend dressing it at lest 20 minutes before serving) and it will still be perfect. Though I always wait¬†until the last minute to add the¬†croutons so they don’t get soggy.

I like to make my own Caesar salad dressing, but store bought will work too. ¬†Since I’m not big on fish, using anchovies freaks me out a bit so I use capers instead which give a very similar taste.

4.7 from 3 reviews
Caesar Salad Dressing
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 1 Tbsp capers, minced
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 2 Tbsp mayo
  • 1 Tsp Dijon Mustard
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  1. After mincing the garlic and cloves I take the side of my knife and scrap along the cutting board to start and create a paste of the two ingredients. You don't have to be terribly fussy here, I normally only take a few passes to break down the garlic and capers a bit more and get some of their juices to release. Then transfer mixture directly to empty salad bowl.
  2. Add mayo, dijon, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Mix with fork or small whisk to combine.


Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

This is a great¬†“starter” salad for converting people to eating kale. It really is fantastic, and if they¬†already like Caesar salad, I can’t imagine them not enjoying the kale version!

Another summer staple is pasta – or macaroni – salad. I’ve never been a fan of the typical store bought macaroni salad in the creamy sauce, but love a homemade version. I adore rotini with fresh veggies and ranch dressing, but today I’m sharing a more recent creation¬†– tortellini¬†pasta salad!

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

I first discovered this idea a few years ago when working on a summer salads post, but keep coming back to it. The general idea is to cook your tortellini, then toss with some extra virgin olive oil to keep it from sticking. Then I added some spices (in this case, sun-dried tomato epicure dip mix), chopped olives, sun-dried tomatoes and a few fresh grape tomatoes. But really you can make this with any veggies and spices you like – make it your own!

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

And my third summer salad is one that might seem a bit weird if you haven’t tried it – Watermelon Feta salad with Balsamic Vinegar.

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

If you enjoy sweet and salty combos you will definitely enjoy this one. And it is as simple as it sounds: chopped watermelon and feta, with Balsamic Vinegar drizzled over the top. That’s it!

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

All of the above salads are shown in the Snapware¬†Entertain-a-Bowls. The Caesar Salad is in the¬†Turquoise 5 Quart Entertain-a-Bowl, while the pasta and watermelon feta salads are in the¬†Yellow & Pink value pack Entertain-a-Bowls. What’s really nice about the Entertain-a-Bowls is that the lidded bowls nest together for easy storage (you’ll never have to search for the lids!), they are both dishwasher and microwave safe and the lids attach easily and securely. I don’t know about you, but I am so tired of lids that just don’t seem to attach properly. That’s why I love snapware!

I also really like that the inside of the bowls are white, as they make it easier to see the food inside, and are more attractive when set out at a potluck. ¬†It’s also nice that you can stack them on on top of the other and carry them all at once (with ease) by their handles without worrying about them falling apart. So great!

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

Another classic summer (and year round) staple is the veggie tray. As a kid my favourite part of the veggie tray was the dip. Who am I kidding? It still is! So I’ve taken my favourite dip recipe from when I was a kid, and switched it up a bit (switched it up = removed all the cooking oil and sugar) to make it a bet healthier.

4.7 from 3 reviews
Veggie DIp
  • ½ Cup plain greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup mayo
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp prepared mustard
  1. Mix all the ingredients together and let chill for 1 hour. Taste after mixing and add more ingredients as needed to suit your tastes.

I’ve also used all greek yogurt to omit the mayo entirely, and have made it using all sour cream as well. I opted for greek yogurt today because that’s what I had, and because it adds a bit of protein.

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

I used the¬†Fruit & Veggie-tainer from Snapware for my veggie tray which not only comes with another spill proof cover, but has a built in removable colander and covered dip container. It too is microwave and dishwasher safe, and is BPA free. If you don’t need the veggie divider, the Fruit & Veggie-tainer can be removed to give you a large salad bowl. When inserted, there is enough room left between the bowl and the veggie divider that you can pack ice or ice packs ¬†inside to keep food fresh and crisp. Because my photos don’t really do justice to all the Fruit & Veggie-tainer can do here is a short video that explains it all a bit better.

One last main dish item I made were these fun skewers of tomato, basil, bocconcini and a prosciutto¬†salami. These couldn’t be easier. I took a wooden skewer, cut it in half and then added one grape tomato, a sprig of fresh basil, bocconcini and one slice of meat. The end.

So simple, so pretty, so tasty!

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

Once the main dish is over, it’s time for dessert! I’ve seen this idea on Facebook and Pinterest so decided to give it a try – Watermelon Pizzas!

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

I’ve seen a number of ways to make the “sauce” but I mixed plain greek yogurt with softened cream cheese (about 2/3¬†cup yogurt to 1/3 cup¬†cream cheese) and added the zest of one lemon. This is a fun dessert you can let everyone make as they are ready. Just have the watermelon pre-cut, the yogurt and cream cheese mixture¬†pre-made and the toppings ready to go. When someone is ready for dessert they can take a watermelon “crust” top with the yogurt and cream cheese mixture and then add the toppings of their choice.

Healthy Summer Entertaining Ideas For Canada Day, 4th of July, Family Get Togethers and Picnics!

If you are wondering if they are as good as they look Рthey are. Fresh and delicious on a hot summer day, these will be certain to please any crowd! These will most certainly be made again here this summer. Yum.

I hope this post has helped you think of some new ways you can make your summer gathering a little bit healthier without having to give-up on taste. And adding snapware products to your next get together is a no brainer!

Cruising Into Summer With Sport Chek #SweatBetter

Happy first day of summer!!!

I mentioned¬†in my last post¬†that my quest to re-finding my fitness self was going to be a multi-part endeavour. I’ve been plugging away at yoga even if for only 10 minutes at a time since I hit publish last week, but that alone isn’t going to be enough.

Since I decided to give up racing (I still am going to do a couple 5K’s¬†here and there, even if they are more walks than anything – just for fun) the one thing I have missed is getting to exercise outside. I like walking, and want to get into doing more hiking, but both of those can be kind of boring when done on their own. I’ve never been really into biking, but for some reason I got it in my head last fall that what I wanted was a cute, mint green cruiser that I could zip around on in the warmer months. Our mail box is about a kilometer away from our house, and I will often walk to it in the summer, but it can be a pain if there are a bunch of packages, or if it’s really hot out so I thought a bike with a basket would be great.

In the winter I started casually looking around online to see what types of cruisers were available, how much they costs, and if they had any that I really liked, and time and time again found myself coming back to this one on the Sport Chek website.

Since I know nothing about bikes aside from the fact that I know it’s important to get the right size, I decided before getting anything I should go in and talk to the employees at my local Sport Chek to see if the bike I had my eye on was an appropriate size for me. Because I’m still a little shy about recording video in-store unless they know I’m there to do that, I vlogged what I found out and then the whole process of getting it, which you can watch below.

It’s taken me a little bit of time to get around to putting this post together because I was fairly sure Ollie was in the video footage, and I didn’t think I was ready to see her yet ūüôĀ But happily, this weekend when I started editing, I was so happy to see her fat little grey self come strolling around the corner. You’ll get to see her twice in the short video!

I apologize that the video ends sort of abruptly. I brought the bike home the day Ollie passed away, so I was definitely not in any state to be seen on camera. :/

If you can’t (or didn’t want to) watch the video, basically what I found out was that cruisers are the “stretch limos” of the bike world. Because the seat is placed differently than on other bikes, most anyone can drive them – which meant that pretty green cruiser should be perfect for me! The bike was ordered on¬†Thursday, and the following Wednesday it¬†was here!

Sport Chek bikes come un-asembled when you order them online, but you can take them into your local store and drop it off to have it assembled free of charge. I was told that they are usually ready to pick up again in 24 hours or less, but since I dropped mine off the weekend of the Apple Blossom Festival (which is a huge deal in my area) I wasn’t expecting it to be done right away, and then I think they forgot to call me to tell me it was ready. I left it there for a week before calling to see if it was ready, I was half waiting to see how long it would take for them to call but I was¬†too busy to go pick it up before then anyway.¬†When I did finally call it was ready and waiting so the following day Cathy and I went and picked her up!


Again they were really nice in-store, they¬†told me that not only did I get the assembly for free, but that they will do minor tune-ups for a full year after purchase. So if it feels like it’s not driving quite straight, or the brakes are a little off, etc. I can bring it back in and they will fix it. That is a great perk that I had no idea they offered!

In fact, I didn’t realize they even serviced bikes, that’s how terribly unobservant I am. I thought they mostly did skate sharpening and other hockey related things and that was it. I am so out of touch sometimes, haha.

Once home there was only one thing my bike needed – a sweet basket. And one quick virtual trip to Amazon and I had a package arriving on my doorstep within days.

Seriously people, how fab does she look?


I can’t even.


I swear this bike screams Suzi, and Suzi is having a slight love affair with the bike…


My husband saw that picture and jokingly said, “You better not be hugging that bike!” Oh but I am…..oh but I am… ūüėÄ

suzi bike2

And don’t worry yourselves, I’ll be wearing a bicycle helmet when driving – and wearing more appropriate shoes too.

suzi bike1

Yes indeed, I am pretty darn smitten and am very much looking forward to having some fun bike excursions this summer. I love that my cruiser is super basic – no gears to shift (because let’s be honest, I never learned how to shift properly so my bike chain always falls off when I try) and it has the backwards brakes (pedal back to stop – like a 4 year old’s bike. Which I love, haha).

I don’t plan on doing anything more than cruise along taking fun, but slow bike rides this summer so this is perfect.

So I’ve traded in my running sneakers for wheels, so hopefully I’ll still cover as many miles (or more) as I would have other years, but instead of doing them on foot, I’ll be on two wheels.

And that is part two of Suzi’s new fitness focus. But I’m not done quite yet. This is a three pronged focus of YOGA – BIKING – ?????? Part three shall be revealed next week. ūüôā

Thank you again to Sport Chek for working with me on this and helping to make my mint green cruiser dreams come true!

If you are in the market for a new bike, check out their selection in store and online – and remember, if you order online you can take it to your local store to have it assembled free of charge. And regardless of where you bought your bike, you can take it in and have their service department take care of minor or major service needs. Check your local store’s In-Store Services to see all they offer.
