I’m going to go ahead and admit it – I’m not the most active person out there. Between a job that’s anything but 9-5, running the blog, attending events, and a bit of side work, I barely have time to sleep let alone get my heart pumping.

Recently, something came into my life that made a bit of a change to my activity levels – my new Polar A360 activity tracker! I’ve toyed with the idea of starting to use a fitness tracker and was honestly so excited when this pretty little device landed on my doorstep. I’ve been using it 24/7 since I received it (I only take it off when I shower), since it tracks just about everything – I’m talking heart rate, steps taken, distance traveled, sleep and even calories burned – and keeps note of everything in the handy Polar Flow portal/app.

Keeping track with Polar Flow

Since I’ve started using it, I’ve noticed that I actually start paying attention to how much I’m moving throughout the day. I’m constantly checking to see how far I’ve traveled and how much more I need to do to reach my daily goal (which was easily set in Polar Flow based on different things like my activity level, weight and height), and I’ve noticed that when I haven’t quite hit my target I’ll make sure to take a bit of a walk on my way home until I’ve made up for the missed steps.

My favourite part so far? The fact that it gives me a little nudge when I’ve been sitting for too long. Working in an office, it’s way too easy to remain sitting when I’m focused on a project, and before I know it, I’ve been sitting for an hour. It’s such a simple thing, but this reminds me to get up out of my seat and move around a little – perfect for when I’m too engrossed in what I’m doing and lose track of time!

So yeah, I guess you could say I’m loving my A360 so far. It’s easy use and keeps track of what I need exactly where I need it! Have you tried out a fitness tracker?


The Polar A360 activity tracker is available at Sportchek and the Running Room.

I did it! As I mentioned previously, Dixie Outlet Mall asked me to take part in their newest She Who Hunts Finds shopping challenge. Last week I headed to the mall, armed with a $200 gift card, to see what I could find and to put together my perfect fall outfit. I had a great time checking out the deals at the different stores in the mall… You should have seen some of the deals! I was pretty blown away by the selection available and the great prices. By the end of the day, I managed to put together a killer outfit, with two top options for $200. Read on to see what I found, where I found it and what I managed to save!

Of course, I had to start off at one of my fave deal hunting stores, Winners! This was the perfect place to get started and to kick off my hunt. I managed to find the base of my outfit here, scoring two fab tops to spin my outfit around. I immediately grabbed this red plaid shirt ($25, suggested retail $40 – $15 savings) – it’s the perfect piece for the fall, bringing a casual vibe to my wardrobe. I then fell in love with this oversized sweater ($35, suggested retail $60 – $25 savings). It’s the perfect cozy sweater and I love that it’s a little versatile; it can be worn open or can be wrapped up at the neck for a warmer look. I knew I wanted a pair of jeans to go along with these and headed to Urban Planet to find a great deal on a pair. I snatched up these comfy skinny jeans ($25, suggested retail $30 – $5 savings) which when perfectly with the outfit I had in mind!

I wanted a cute bag to go along with this outfit and decided to stop by Payless when I saw a sign advertising deals on purses. This fringed crossbody ($17, suggested retail $37 – $20 savings) was super cute and an amazing deal! I also snatched up the perfect grey tank top ($3, full price – but at that price, do you even need a discount?) at Sirens to throw on under everything.

Now, since I had been so good and managed to save $65 I decided it was time to splurge a little. I’ve had my eye on these killer booties ($70) from Call It Spring and knew that this was the perfect chance to grab them – and they went perfectly with my outfit! I definitely don’t even mind that I paid full price for them since they’re the perfect booties to take me into fall.

Accessorizing can be the easiest way to instantly take an outfit from drab to fab. I love playing around with new jewelry to try to spice up an outfit, and I’m so excited to announce that I’m one of Pearls for Girls’ newest ambassadors! Over the next 6 months I’m going to be sharing some of their newest pieces, some of my fave pieces, and I might even have a few little treats for you along the way.

Pearls for Girls combines Swedish design with high level craftsmanship for a line that’s natural, stylish and affordable. I really love the fact that all of the pieces in the line are made from natural materials – think freshwater pearls, semi-precious stones and crystals. This also means that the pieces have unique characteristics to them, since the natural materials will all have variations.

Up first I wanted to share a few gorgeous pieces from the core Pearls for Girls collection. The Olivia bracelets ($41) are classic, and can be easily paired with many different outfits. I love the gorgeous shine the rhinestones give off, making them sure to dazzle. Available in three different tones – silver, gold and rose gold hues – there’s one available to suit your mood. I’m personally more of a gold/rose gold fan – I think these tones work a little better with my skin tone – but I really like throwing on different combinations of these for a mixed metals look.
