I've been working through a serious case of nostalgia as of late. Not only did I just return from Victoria last night after an unreal weekend away in my old home base (where Matt and I first started dating 7 years ago at UVic and where I formed bonds with most of my current best friends), but I've also been asked a few different times in various recent interviews about why I started blogging to begin with, which has had me looking back to those early days, reminiscing over how every new app, platform or even SEO hack was a new and exciting discovery back then. Fortunately, I've had an opportunity to get back to those roots lately, and it's given a fresh new surge of inspiration! Click through to read more.
I'm currently exploring beautiful Victoria with my boyfriend for our 7-year anniversary celebration (follow along on Insta here!) so I'm letting myself off the hook a bit in terms of my usual workout and nutrition commitments, but as soon as I get back to Vancouver on Monday, it's back to the #2015STRONG routine! Quite frankly, now that I'm well over a month into really tightening up my fitness and wellness resolutions, I'm loving my sweat sessions more than ever - so much so in fact that I'm very rarely not running around the city in my workout wear these days, en route to a fitness class, the gym or the pool for a sweat session! Naturally, it means I've had to step up my gym bag game, which brings us to today's gym bag essentials post!

Happy Friday!!! I am especially excited for this particular Friday because a) I am taking off with the boyfriend for our 7 year anniversary to Victoria thanks to the incredible people at Harbour Air and Grand Pacific Hotel (follow along on all the fun in our old town on Instagram and on Snapchat-->@tovogueorbust) and b) I'm able to finally share this tutorial to track your travels around the world with I See Noise Prints!
