For Your Health: Smoothies

I have been drinking smoothies by the barrel lately, they're so good for you (depending what you put in them) and they're a great light and refreshing snack!  Here's two of my recent favorites:

Mango Coconut Smoothie
-1 inch of soy milk (or regular milk if you prefer)
-1-2 handfuls of spinach
-1/2 cup frozen (or fresh) mango
-2 Tbsp. Greek yogurt
-1 heaped Tsp. shredded coconut
-1 Tsp. chia seeds

Very Berry Smoothie:
-1 inch water in your blender
-1-2 handfuls of spinach
-1/2 cup frozen berry blend
-1 Tsp. honey
-1 Tsp. flax seeds

Yum yum yum!!  Being healthy CAN taste soooooo good ;)

Wore Stories: Pink Pants

I think it's safe to say it's FINALLY Spring here!!!  Those of you who are in Manitoba know what I mean when I say it has felt like forever for Winter to be over!  Finally the snow has mostly melted and I'm busting out the colored pants!

Back to School: Ladies Wear

Some of you may know already that I'm taking Apparel Design at Red River College in the city!  It's been SO much fun, I'm sad this year is nearly over!

This last term we are faced with the challenge of designing original designs and following them to completion: Sketch the idea, create the pattern, sew the garment.  I'm so proud with how my first attempt turned out:

This next photo is the class where we showed what we'd made along with the pattern pieces.

Next is kids wear, and I'm so excited to make clothing for my daring little niece!  Stay tuned....
