Rewind: Washington, DC Trip

Washington, DC is officially one of my favourite cities in the US. Possibly even my absolutely favourite. I was not expecting anything going into the trip, but I fell in love with it immediately. I was impressed by how clean the whole city was, and breath taken by the beauty of the landmarks. The people…

Things I Realized About Self-Love

So many things changed this year. I really felt like I have grown the most this year. I had the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. So what did it all teach me? 1. Never be with someone who tells you that they don’t have time for you. If someone genuinely means the…

A Day In My Life – January 9, 2016

There is nothing better than Saturday morning brunch! This was my first brunch experience, and I’m in love. If only I could brunch every day. I ordered pancakes with ham.

This fruit bowl: 1 cup plain Greek 0% sugar free yogurt (found at Costco) Handful of frozen raspberries 1 orange, each slice cut in half Sliced…

A Day In My Life – January 4, 2016

Today was the first week back to university! Semester 2, here we go! After my first classes, I headed to a resource centre where I was greeted by this friendly face! I then had to run some errands around the university. First, I went to see my financial counsellor, and then to the bookstore to…

Change & Midnight Thoughts

As you may have noticed, my URL has just changed from spicesofelegance to alittlebitofg. Why? Originally creating this blog, I was looking to put out content relating to my life, my interests and my passions. However, my username had absolutely nothing to do with me. It was rather a generic “beauty guru” username commonly found…

Top Shows To Binge Watch This Summer

Things Every High School Student Should Know

Currently being a senior, I have lived to tell the tale of high school. I wish I could take a time machine and let my thirteen year old self know that high school only lasts for four years, so no matter what you do, everything will turn out okay at the end. Here are some…

7 Bucket List Ideas

Summer is in its highest peak in the middle of August, with warm lake water and hot summer nights. Although September is sneaking into our lives again with the launch pumpkin-scented Bath and Body Works candles and back-to-school advertising (please stop), there is still plenty of time to make this summer memorable. Here is a…
