Happy Wednesday! I may be hunkered indoors working away right now but this throwback to our outdoor #typicalcanadianwinter weekend has me reminiscing. For all of you that live without snow and minus temps, I promise that snow and winter is a magical season when you know how to play outdoors and are bundled up in all the right gear. Let’s face it, I don’t go anywhere without my snow pants and being toasty makes all the difference in your attitude towards the cold. . #canadian #winter #playoutside #fire #log #putanotherlogonthefire #stoked #winterfun #outdoorlife #canadianwinter #fetchandbloom #blogger #613blogger #ottawablogger #creative
flowers - they show us what another person cannot bring themselves to say: "im sorry i hurt you", 'i hope these support you in your grief", "i love you", and sometimes even "just because". humans are truly peculiar beings, aren't they? to harvest gifts of nature in order to let the untouched raw beauty of the earth speak for them - as if we have any right to proclaim what an earth's creature could possibly ever mean.
Made a #snapchat for TCM if you'd like to follow. Next week will be particularly interesting as im headed to the big smoke for 3 days of craziness at the @restaurantscanada show.
Glorious Fri-YAY! It has been weeks since we’ve had regularly scheduled #pancakelove around here. The kids are begging for it and I’m still a bit out of practice after so long! Had to dig deep and find my famous almond chia pancake recipe and am also sharing this recipe over on the blog today. Because if I’m going to proliferate about how good my protein stacks are, I best put my money where my mouth is and share it with you too!

Happy Valentines Day Ravens ❤️
I give you my heart❤️. It’s not about who gives you what and what your fancy plans are for this day, but about how and what you love, all with your clan alongside you. Give yourself the room to love yourself first and foremost, and you will create amazing things.

We’re half way done through the week, and things are looking good. Tomorrow I have a huge meeting where it could be in the right direction when it comes to my career and life. As well it’s Valentines Day, and I am so excited that I get to spend it with someone who loves for me and makes me so incredibly happy @c_vicente21 without you tomorrow wouldn’t of never happened. I’m enjoying a cup of coffee from this coffee spot and cracking down on the things that I need to get ready for tomorrow. Love and happiness - Sarah ✨💕🌿
Anyone else love comfort food? 🍽
Meal prep. The all important aspect of making our lives in the kitchen easier and our food choices healthier. We all know this and use it to our own advantage. But are you missing anything from your routine? This week I’m talking all things meal prep and sharing some of my secrets to success. Head on over to the blog and see how I plan my grocery shop and execute my weekly meal prep.

#ADHDtips : Feel accomplished and keep your sanctuary clean by tackling the first challenge of the day : To make your bed. ———————————————————————————— If you’re anything like me, within seconds of awakening in the morning, you’re hit with this sudden burst of energy. With this, you get this itching urge to fulfil every idea that comes to mind. Although this can be great, it sucks when you open your bedroom door at night and the first thing that catches your eye is your unmade bed. Having ADHD can be tough when it comes to home maintenance/organization. But if you gain at least one daily habit to clean/organize something... how about it be where you rest your lovely head at night ? 🥰 🛌 Try adding this to your morning routine ! You’ll feel great, trust me 🙌🏽💖
this fried chicken meal at @lexingtonottawa was bestowed upon us by the gods themselves. ok, I'm being a lil dramatic but listen: you can get mac&cheese as a side which in itself is fantastic, and the chicken melts in your mouth. plus it's fried in that perfectly crunchy breading that holds flavour within itself 🤤 this is SO much food for the value and I was blessed to be able to have this as a dinner AND a lunch the next day. #notsponsored #iwish #justsharing
Well this is what you get when you start with a simple idea to use up some extra table cloth scraps and it grows into a make your own pattern and learn to add a zipper challenge. There is much to learn here on my end, but I can’t seem to learn anything without a little trial by fire.

#ADHDtips : Use a kitchen timer to help manage your time better ⏲⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ —⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Having only recently learned about this time managing tool through a YouTuber, I am still on the midst of adapting to it. HOWEVER, based on the times when I have used it, it’s evident that the timer makes an incredible difference.... I never realized how much time I waste on things that’s really don’t matter. How did I figure this out ? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Well, before using this ⏲, I counted how long it took me to shower, get dressed and hair+ makeup. The next morning, I set my timer to those times, hypothesizing that I would remain without yesterday’s time frame... I was sadly wrong. On average, I went over each duty by 35% 😲... In all, this little thing is not only a great tool for productivity & time management but also for self realization and improvement.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ( ps, to avoid phone-given distractions, I’d highly recommend not using the timer on there... I made that mistake too many times before 🤦🏽‍♀️) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #adhd #mentalhealth #innerbeauty #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthblogger #bloggingbabe #letstalkaboutit #teamwork #independence #introvert #psychology #ottawa #ottawamentalhealth #selflove #whatdoyouthink #ottawastyle #613blogger #careforyourself #ottawalife #montreal #ottawaphotographer #anxiety #stopthesigma
Happy Sunday! I hope you’ve got a full day of chill and good times planned. You may be wondering about my 30 days of cutting out all allergens from my diet. Well it finished mid week last week, but I plan on keeping up with it. I want to reintroduce some foods but avoid adding the ones I know are problematic. So far it has crossed my mind almost every day- is this food worth reintroducing? Well friends, this right here was my first official break from the whole 30. Made from teff, oat flour and hemp milk, I consider the oat to be the first grain reintroduction. They were everything that deems the pinnacle of Weekend brunch. . #whole30reintroduction #whole30reintro #teff #waffles #brunch #breakfast #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #613blogger #ottawablogger #creative

I am not entirely superstitious but I do know that you aren’t supposed to do any needlework on the Chinese New Year. I also took a giant chunk out of my thumb the other night using my mandolin without the safety guard. So for now I’ll just admire my organized skeins and draw up some new patterns. . #embroidery #embroidery floss #fibrearts #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #crafts #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #creative
For someone that easily get distracted, I have a hard time working with others. Mainly because I can’t hear myself think properly.

Allow me to introduce to you the oldest mama plant I own. This beaut is 16 years old!! I kept her in a thimble sized pot for nearly a decade and once I moved her to a bigger pot, she started making lots of babies. Some of her babies are now teenagers, but can you transplant younglings mid winter? Or should I wait till the spring? . It’s crazy to think how long this plant has cohabited with me. And she’s proof that giving things room to grow will guarantee a thriving plant- something that translates to our own ideas, hobbies, and desires too. Don’t let the confines that others may place upon you define where and how far you go. . #greenthumb #succulent #zebraplant #plantsofinstagram #plantsmakepeoplehappy #plantselfie #fetchandbloom #blogger #diy #craftygirl #613blogger #ottawablogger #creative
Happy Monday! I’ve made this recipe a few times in the last 27 days and it’s the perfect thing to make ahead and freeze portions for easy lunches. Because I am essentially professing my love for the Whole 30 and how it’s made me buck up to eating well, I’ve made a 1 week Whole 30 approved meal plan for all those who want to see what it’s all about!

First snowshoe of the season which is a bit ludicrous considering it’s February. I forgot how much work it is to get the kids out there with all the ‘I’m tired!’ And constant breaks for snacks. We made it back alive but it didn’t seem likely between all the tears and fits these two had out there today. #momproblems #lifewithkids #snowshoeing #snowshoe #winterfun #getoutside #staycalmandsnowshoe #carryon #canadianwinter #snow #cold #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #creative
02.02.2019 // People keep telling me “you’re only 20, you’ll figure things out”, but I get the feeling that that’s one of those sentiments that only makes sense 20 years down the line. Besides, do any of us really ever “have it figured out”?
Whatever happened to those light dustings of snow? Another truckload of snow is falling from the sky today. Perfect for making forts in! . #winter #canadiankidsoutdoors #getoutside #canadianwinter #snow #playinthesnow #winterfun #613winter #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger

❤️throwback to two years ago when my girl and I did everything together! She’s so big now, I have to push her around in a giant running stroller rather than her being snugly strapped to myself.

When I first talked to Laura @laurakellyphoto about appearing on the @youmightnotlikeit show, I was full of excitement and big ideas. I wanted to talk about being a woman of large appetites. In that conversation I wanted to cover the genesis story of Taste & Tipple, highlights and low points of my dating life, taking pleasure in the small things and how to cultivate self-confidence and conquer feelings of shame. ✖️ It was an ambitious agenda. After we finished recording, over cocktails (of course), I had the growing sense of unease. I felt anxious that I’d shared too much and that I would come off sounding like a self-absorbed asshole. I felt exposed and vulnerable, not knowing how listeners would perceive me in all my imperfections and contradictions. ✖️ Then I listened to episode 14, “No, I won’t have coffee with you” of @youmightnotlikeit and Laura reminded me that you can’t be everything to everyone. I was instantly reminded that the only thing that mattered is that I shared my authentic self. Whether this episode resonates with you or not, you’ll definitely know me better after listening to it. ✖️ Tune in wherever you find your podcasts or on youmightnotlikeit.com . . #ottawablogger #foodblogger #youmightnotlikeit #podcast #613blogger #myottawa #ottawa #girlboss #womeninbusiness #smallbusiness #tasteandtipple
Who else loved local food week? #fave
as I was finishing up a workday last week, I was surprised to hear there was a delivery for me. in a big brown bag, there was this round box with a lid decorated with a dried flower and the label, which immediately reminded me of a hat box from the last century. with zero idea of the box' contents, I opened it slowly to reveal this incredible arrangement of live, wonderfully-smelling roses, leaves, and a delicate package of 4 macarons. thank you @a_shaily for the perfectly executed surprise of a birthday gift 🌹
Happy Monday! Trying to clean up after the weekend. When it’s -30 outside, and we have a full house this place can fall to shambles pretty quickly. Thankfully I’ve got some great organizing going on inside my closets and cupboards to help me tidy up fast.

Plus some tips on how to maximize storage in your living space, especially if you live in a little big home like me! 😊 .

Yesterday was national hug day?! I’m so thankful for this little girl right here that highlights the magic of life and the little things. A hug from her puppet, Fran the flamingo. She’s at the tender age where she thinks her stuffies are real, and this moving life size one is so much fun to animate and see my girls eye’s light up. So while I’m over here welling up with joy, go find someone and give them a great big hug..

Morning! When it’s minus 40 outside and this is your view from bed, why would you crawl outside to brace the cold!? Had a very ‘errandy’ weekend.. cuz that’s a word.

Happy Tuesday! It’s been a crafty kind of week so far, using up scraps from other projects for new ideas. I’m kind of into making bookmarks- to match my resolution to read more books this year. Plus I got a new dslr yesterday and I’m kind of geeking out right now! Also on day 8 of whole 30 and you guys! I love it! It’s forced me to be an adult and avoid the foods I’m so in love with but I’m actually intolerant too. It’s also helped me get back into serious meal prepping and that makes all the difference. I know I had started slacking in that department and was making easy aka unhealthy choices for snacks and meals. I thought it would be hard, but it’s amazing. . #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative #whole30

Hey Ravens! Hope you all had a wonderful break!
It’s January 7th and all the holiday parties are officially over! It has been a whirlwind vacation and this past holiday season has really been special for us. But now it’s time to pack up all the decorations and clear out the home as well as get back to those intentions for the new year. I’ve decided I’m going to try a modified version of whole 30 starting today. Modified to allow for the sometime addition of foods on the no list. And although I’ve had my subscription to 8fit for a few months, I have yet to use the workout section. Today I decided that i will commit to that and just let them pick my HIIT for me. I’ve completed two of the four workouts for today and love it. You can pick your music and it’s got timer and video built in to each move which takes all the guess work out of it. Here’s to January and new beginnings. Anyone have any success with whole 30? . #whole30 #8fit #newbeginnings #usfitgals #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative

Sometimes, it’s easy to give 1001 reasons not to do some things. I have discussed starting a YouTube channel with some friends for YEARS or many months 😂 I never actually did it because I was either scared of putting myself out there, or of running out of content or something else. I’m happy I took the leap! It’s giving me a chance to figure out my camera, be creative, get comfortable in front of a camera & just have fun. @yeyewandeeo stressed the importance of just focusing on your work, doing it for you and perfecting your craft instead of obsessing about numbers. 👈🏿 Best Advice I’m grateful to have finally just put myself out there and have fun with it! I’m also grateful for the support from you guys 🥰 Thanks for 50+ subscribers ! Lool I can’t believe I started a YouTube Channel 😂💃🏿🤷🏿‍♀️ Oh, I put up a new video!! Go check it out ! ____ P.S.

And as per usual, I’m still crafting way past the acceptable date for handmade presents! This cutie is being gifted today. I’ve got more making to do before little Christmas arrives.

Happy Saturday! Did the last prep shop before Xmas and wrapping up the last gifts! I can’t wait to get into this book with my kids. Growing up in the 80s, I remember being sent to science camp in an effort to raise more girls who would go into the ‘male dominant’ fields. Mind you, women were full on into the workforce in the 80s, but I love that our generation is celebrating our accomplishments and widening the public discourse. 💪 #womenempowerment #raisestrongwomen #raisestronggirls #girlpower #girlboss #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative #fiveminutestoriesforgirls

One week to Xmas eve and this is all the baking I’ve done this year. It’s waaay better for my waistline to be less organized for Xmas baking traditions! But these were not going to escape . Nothing says holiday season like a good ‘melomakarona’ to have with your afternoon coffee. Or anytime really, they’re hard to resist! These honey drenched walnut spiced cookies are my all time favorite cookie. Recipe is up on the blog now. Follow link in bio.

I can’t believe there is only one more week till Christmas. I still have so much shopping to do and haven’t even watched all the Christmas movies on my “Christmas Movie List.” But I can’t wait till the day is finally here. ✨
Kicked off party season at our house, and this charcuterie board was first up. I love a party where I don’t have to actually cook anything and still have everyone feeling stuffed. Who spies those adorable quail eggs dressed up with salami bows? Those came.. out.of.a.can. Yep, I’ve been working my way over to the easy side of entertaining. I used to dream up menus that had me in the kitchen for three days prior to a party. Today was as easy as clearing the toys out the main space, setting a table and plating some fantastic bites. It helps to plan a potluck too.. I must do this more often! Hope your Saturday evening is filled with love and laughter! 💗 now back to some prosecco 🍾 ... . #saturdayvibes #holidayentertaining #christmas #partyfood #charcuterie #appetizers #easyentertaining #christmasmenu #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative
I hope you’re all crossing things off your list! I did it🎄🎄🎄Started the gift shopping yesterday and finished today. I’m sporting Xmas efficiency 101 here! . This little bear is one of my fave Xmas tchotchkes, he’s been broken for so many years but I glued him back together and he has managed to survive well over a decade. Anyone else have any broken but too dear to part with ornaments or decor? I’m definitely a maxisentimentalist. . #christmasdecor #rusticxmas2018 #christmastchotchkes #nostalgia #mylittlebrokenornament #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative
Nothing like grilled cheese and tomato soup to warm you up on a cold day!
Guys... 😩💖 After sharing my story about @CleoFlaneur ‘s disappearance, I’ve received many personal messages by some of you... just expressing how relatable it was. Many don’t know this but while I was in Montreal, I fell into this hole of depression. I’ve never felt so alone and mad in my life. I didn’t say anything because I didn’t want to lose “friendships/opportunities”. After reading your messages, It’s as though all my tears and countless moments of loneliness was all worth it. And more importantly, I no longer feel alone about feeling such a way. Thank you so much for this... my heart grows bigger because of you guys 💖 Being the real life “Big Sister” I am, I wanted to tell my story for the pure sake of benefiting another’s growth.... I’ve come to realize that sometimes, we get caught in something that we don’t necessarily want to do. And depending on one’s circumstance, it’s not always easy to leave. But at the end of the day, if your goal in life is to be happy, you’ll do whatever you can to achieve that... no matter how hard the journey is to get there. For those going through a similar predicament, I hope you find the mental strength to do what makes you happy. Live your life for YOU and achieve YOUR goals 💖💫#SelfInvesting 😘
Happy Fri-YAY! . So I’ve finally decided to do some of the Xmas wishlist shopping for the kids.... umm I’m last minute girl over here this year! Things are sold out.. I’ve got a serious mission to find things and cross off that list today! Anyone else just starting their Xmas shopping? . Mary @fitgirlevolutionbaby and I have been making #pancakelove for nearly two years now bit I have recently had my mind blown by this amazing woman @fit_food_from_stef that makes healthy mug pancakes. It’s bloody brilliant, and would seriously cut down on time. Today’s first version was to take my existing recipe and chuck it in the microwave. Swipe to see the styled round, and the first one that got burnt in the center. They both tasted baaaad. I’m going to keep trying though! . #pancakelove #pancakefriday #proteinpancake #breakfast #cleaneats #madewithlove #fetchandbloom #blogger #momblogger #diy #craftyblogger #craftlove #craftygirl #homeorganization #foodblogger #recipecreator #recipes #momsinthekitchen #momlife #613blogger #ottawablogger #momblogger #creative
