Winter is here; Opportunity to refresh.

>> Oct 28, 2012


When you come home on a cold winter night and there's nothing in the fridge, and you're not in the vein to cook; a water based soup is inevitably the best way to go. No oil necessary. Just think about what flavors you want to taste in the soup. I actually made this recently & i wasn't feeling well that night. Mine contains Noodles, shrimps, chicken bits, mushrooms, onions and slices of cabbage for a veggie crunch.

A little winter note
Lately my positive attitude spiraled down or should i say took a full wavy spin; i used to hate winter when i just came to Canada and then i decided to think of all the good things it brings and see how i could make it work for me. That has evolved and improved over time but so far these are my 2 main winter excitements. 

THE SKIN - Your skin is always going to be on lock down, so you might as well prepare it to heal from all the summer exposure while it hibernates. Put on a lot of lotion and skin cream before you roll up the tights and or jeans. While you go about your business, the moisture locks in and your skin softens. (Pedicure's last longer too :p)
WARM DRINKS - I feel like warm drinks soothe my insides and give reassurance, i can't explain it. Drink as many as you can, they'll add liquid to your system and you'll feel full most of the time. (A lot of unnecessary feeding is done during the winter) Also, they'll help your metabolism. More tea, less coffee. :).

Just a collage of pretty things that i consumed recently.(I'll do these more often. I can't blog everything so that's when this is useful). 
The first row: All in honor of my birthday {good friends, good times :) }
The second row: White avenue experiences and {Green tea latte & cupcakes from - me moments}
The last picture: Health Watch Detox blend {i will make a post about that. Made at home}



With love! Stay warm burrrr!
