Kendall + Kylie for Topshop

A week or so ago, Topshop sent me a few pieces from their newest collaboration and collection, Kendall + Kylie, to style and enjoy in the hot hot heat. So, that's exactly what I did--sk8er boi style (jk it's a longboard). And, because I'm sweating non-stop in my room as I write this, I think I'll call it quits before I have to take another shower. BRB getting a fan...

TRAVEL DIARY
Canmore, Alberta

As an Albertan, I've often taken for granted the inexplicable grandeur and proximity of the Rocky Mountains. So, to make up for this obscene ignorance and take in some fresh mountain air, 6 amigos and I jump started our summer road trips with a quick visit to Canmore, Alberta. Being only a four hour drive away (three point five, if you're cheeky), we made the drive down on Thursday while singing along to Songs About Jane (flawlessly, if I might add), only to spend the night lounging around and playing Smash Brothers on Eric's WiiU. But, being the hardcore hikers that we are (jk), we made sure to start off our hikes with something like fourteen sandwiches packed, some bear mace, and a 9 km trek to the Bow Glacier Falls. And, because that wasn't hard enough, the next day we tackled Ha Ling Peak--only an 8 km hike this time, but with an elevation of 700m (for the record, my legs are still sore). But, at least the view was swell, a mountain goat was spotted, and I got to swing my feet over the edge of a mountain. All in all, not a bad weekend at all.

Fun fact #102: I have never enjoyed running. But ever since tearing my ACL (anterior cruciate ligament, in case you were wondering) a few years ago, my physical activity has been limited to hot yoga and a randomly assembled core routine (in other words, not much). When I decided to finally get my butt back into shape this summer, I started doing exactly what I hated--running. With that being said, when the UK-based women's activewear brand, Sweaty Betty, asked me to try out some of their products, I was incredibly excited to be able to update my outdated athletic gear and no longer have to run with a sweat-drenched iPhone in hand. And after hauling this ensemble to a couple hot yoga sessions, a few 7 km runs, and two wet and chilly hikes in Canmore, I can confidently say that I'm a now a bonafide Sweaty Betty.

PS: Starting this Thursday, Sweaty Betty will be having an up to 50% off sale both online and in-store! Don't miss out!
