people baby.jpg

WOW! This has been the hardest thing to keep a secret!! I feel like all i’ve been doing is lying to everyone! We are SOOOOO excited to announce that we are expecting! This journey has been incredible so far. Definitely challenging at times but we are so grateful to be experiencing this. I am so in awe of the female body and what we can do. I will get into more detail about my journey and have so much pregnancy content coming your way! Here is the link to our original announcement in People Magazine

The first trimester I literally couldn’t get off the couch. I was so tired and nauseous.  I have never in my life stayed in pajamas all day but for the first 3 weeks its all I could do. Then the movie offer for A Very Corgi Christmas came in, I thought there is no way I can travel and work feeling this way. I barely have the energy to take a shower! But then I read the script and immediately thought there’s no way I can’t do this!! My co stars were going to be a puppy, a kid and a love interest. How could I not do this?! The script was so adorable and such a feel good movie and it would be my first time playing a mom. I thought how special will this be to tell my kid one day? That he or she was a part of it? Darin gave me the best pep talk and told me that I could do anything so I accepted and flew off to freezing cold Toronto!

When I started filming, I still basically had a flat tummy. As shooting progressed, my pants started getting tighter and tighter. Every time wardrobe turned around I either had a grilled cheese, waffle or mac and cheese in my hand. She would look at me like I was crazy! So I had to let her in on my little secret. All I wanted were those carbs! Most actresses eat super healthy while working, especially when they can’t do their pants up! It was a hard secret to keep for sure, but I just had tell her. If I didn’t eat every 2 hours on the dot I would get so nauseous, so basically all I was doing was eating and gaining weight while filming. It was definitely not what I’m used to! My body started to change and I started gaining weight. Most of you know I have been a health and fitness fanatic my whole life so this was definitely a hard adjustment. I really didn’t care though. It’s all so worth it!! My producers and director took such good care of me on set and the whole experience was so incredibly special. Everyone on this film was incredible and even though most of them had no idea, having them be a part of this moment in my life was so special to me and I will never ever forget it. Working long hours on set during the first trimester was really challenging but it also really helped the time go by faster. Before I started filming, the days felt like months just waiting for that first ultrasound, paying attention to every symptom but once I got busy working, time started to fly. I am so grateful for it.

PLASTIC -- WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW NOW FOR YOUR HEALTH!

PLASTIC -- WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW NOW FOR YOUR HEALTH!

BPA. PET, PVC, These letters didn’t mean much to me until recently. Let me start from the beginning. Years ago, I read an article about Sheryl Crow being diagnosed with breast cancer. She mentioned in the article that she attributed it to leaving plastic water bottles in her hot car and then drinking it. I realized I did the same and quickly stopped. t was then that I became very interested in the type of water I was drinking and where it was coming from. I

REAL TALK TUESDAY : Anxiety

REAL TALK TUESDAY :  Anxiety

I’m going to be starting #realtalktuesday on the blog. A place where we can talk about real issues and connect more. I love sharing beauty, health and wellness tips with you guys. You know this by now. The thing is, being healthy isn’t just about a healthy body and what you eat. It really all starts with your mental state. Mental health is something that more and more people are talking openly about and I think that is really important. So often we experience things and feel as though we are alone and that nobody else has to deal with these things but that couldn’t be further from the truth.

THERE'S JUST SOMETHING ABOUT NATURE...

That does it for me. The minute I step onto grass, surrounded by trees with preferably a lake nearby, I am instantly recharged. The smells in the air, the sun on my face (covered in sunscreen of course!) The sound of birds chirping (doves cooing) and the wind rustling through the leaves. Theres nothing like it for me. When I was a kid, I spent my summers in the country at a sleep away summer camp. Those were the best memories of my childhood. It was there that I discovered my love for acting by being in the plays and it was there where I discovered how important being outside in nature was for me. We played sports all summer long and spent the entire summer outdoors in nature. From volleyball to tennis to basketball, baseball and soccer. We did every water activity you can possibly do on a lake from waterskiing to sailing, wind surfing and canoeing. These were the happiest years of my childhood. They were when I was most at peace. Maybe that's why when I step out into a location like this one here, I am filled with so much gratitude, peace and just happy feelings.  What type of locations make you feel happy? Happy Friday loves!

HOW TO LOOK LIKE YOU SPENT A WEEK ON A BEACH!

HOW TO LOOK LIKE YOU SPENT A WEEK ON A BEACH!

Let's face it, sometimes we want to look like we just got back from St. Tropez (or maybe we actually did, but are being smart and protecting ourselves from too much exposure to those harmful uv rays!) The problems I have run into with self tanners are that they are either too streaky, too orange, they smell too strong or they stain your clothes.
