Summer 2017!

We love making a to-do list, at the start of each season, of the things we want to do before the season ends. This summer, we want to make sure we take time to enjoy the season and ALL it has to offer and also ensure we are focusing on a healthy mind, body and life. Today we are sharing our summer list – we hope you’ll join us in savouring the summer season!

 

#1 Visit the spa

We recently visited the new Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa in Stonebridge and could not have been happier with the services. Brit enjoyed the classic facial and Justine had the Swedish relaxation massage – both services we would highly recommend. The employees are extremely knowledgable and the spa has a great relaxing atmosphere.

We also love their membership approach to services, which gives you a discounted price on services each month and encourages you to seek regular treatments to improve your overall health (physical and mental).

 

#2 Indulge in Saskatoon’s food trucks

We have made an attempt to eat less meat, which convinced us to try Ace Burger YXE’s veggie burger and we are so thankful we did. It was a refreshing change from their regular burger (which we also thoroughly enjoy). Make sure to download the Snack Map app, so you can find all your favourite food trucks! (iPhone/Android)

 

#3 Get moving with The Movement YXE

There is no better time to incorporate regular fitness into your life than in summer, when its easy to wake up early and when you are regularly visiting the pool or lake. The Movement YXE offers a variety of Pilates classes, the best instructors and a great community of people. It is our happy place!

 

#4 Enjoy rosé with girlfriends

It’s true when they say “there are friends, there is family and then there are friends that become family”. We can all get caught up in our own lives , but it is so important to take the time to connect with friends. We often find a night with close friends is the most rejuvenating.

 

#5 Visit Una’s ultimate patio

When the food is amazing and the ambiance is unbeatable, it is easy to keep returning. Our pizza suggestion at Una Pizza and Wine? 4-maggi every time!

 

#6 Pick berries as a family

Summer 2017 - blondewalk

Picking our own fruit is a short season for us, so we have committed to berry picking multiple times this summer (at Rhodes). There is nothing more satisfying than fresh berries and it is the perfect activity to do with children.

 

#7 Bake a pie

Summer 2017 - blondewalk

We love making pies (especially with berries that we picked ourselves) and believe that pie is one of the best desserts of summer, tied with ice cream.

 

 #8 Try Fable Ice Cream

Summer 2017 - blondewalk

Fable Ice Cream is now open! They offer small batch ice cream made from scratch with fresh ingredients. We recommend trying the mint chip in their homemade waffle cone, which is arguably the best part!

 

Have a great summer!
Brit + Justine
