What a week it has been! I’m not sure if it went fast or slow, but I’m sure glad it’s finally Friday.
In the 22nd season premiere of the animated series ARTHUR on PBS, Arthur, Francine, Buster, and Muffy, learn that their third-grade teacher, Mr. Ratburn, is getting married. A man. (Yay! But was I the only one who didn’t know ARTHUR was still on the air?)

Side note: Arthur has been a part of pop culture with numerous memes being used to surmise adult problems and situations (most famously the “fist“).
Favourite Thing Not to Talk About

Have you been inundated with swim truck ad emails? I have, which tells me one thing → the summer fashion show is about to be in full swing.
I like to build an outfit around my swimwear, which is why I go for something with style, but will also fit my body type. A good rule of thumb for all: solid colour trunks in dark neutrals have the most potential to pair with any linen button-down shirt to elevate your look for dinner, but also mix perfectly with a graphic tee or polo. Prints can be a little tricky, but they definitely show your personality.
I’ve sourced some of my favourite swimsuits (or is it bathing suits?) in a range of prices ($14.99–$490) and styles.
Mother’s Day is such an important day: what do you give someone who does so much for those around her? I’ve consulted some of the best mamas I know, and here are a few gift ideas for every superwoman on your list.
A search for #CeleryJuice on Instagram returns over 133k posts (not including all the variations on the hashtag). Users say that drinking the green juice has cured them of a variety of problems. Goop even shares stories touting its “potent healing properties.”
There’s something else about celery juice that could explain its popularity on social media, according to Malina Malkani, registered dietitian nutritionist and spokeswoman for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics: “The beautiful green color of celery juice also lends itself to gorgeous photos in an Instagram feed.” LOL
Celery has become the most expensive ingredient across numerous juice bars and healthy cafés. The increase in demand is partly fuelled by Anthony Williams, a self-proclaimed medical medium.
So, what are these health benefits?
Celery, while low-calorie (just 3 in a 5-inch stalk), provides a healthy dose of fiber, and vitamins C and K and potassium. Other advantages include helping with inflammation, boosting energy levels, adding anti-oxidants, improving overall health as well as a way to cleanse or ‘reset’ your body.
Despite the claims, few studies have investigated whether drinking celery juice actually improves health. Food experts say there is no evidence to prove celery as a superfood.
And with that in mind, here’s my attempt at #CeleryJuice:
I found the taste of straight celery juice too strong, so I added one apple. Although, it’s believed the greatest benefits come when celery juice is consumed on its own. (William says celery juice is most powerful when you drink it solo.)
What are your thoughts? Do you have a cup of celery juice to start your day?
Happy Friday, everyone! I put winter clothes away last weekend, but had to pull a couple pieces out over this week, so I’m not sure when warmer days will be here. In the meantime, here are my Friday Favourites, including a crewneck sweatshirt for those chilly spring days.
And just like that, Christmas has come and gone. The decorations are packed away and now it’s time to give the house a fresh restart. Between hosting guests and acquiring more stuff, the holiday season can leave our homes in disarray and us feeling a bit chaotic. It’s in this moment I find myself inspired. There’s nothing I enjoy more than a good playlist and a new candle to really kick myself into high gear.
Oh, I’m skipping the new candle and going for a simple (and fun) stovetop potpourri — all the ingredients you need for this are right in your kitchen.
Happy New Year! *insert champagne bottle, glass clinking, and party popper emojis* I hope that you enjoyed ringing in the New Year. It’s officially 2019, and you know what that means: time to kick your resolutions or goals into high gear. Somehow, January 1 is symbolic and represents an opportunity to “turn it around” with a fresh calendar year.
