The temperatures are rising, the days are longer and the sun is brighter. Yes, my friends, summer is right around the corner….and there’s no question this is my favorite time of year to get my workouts done outside!
As a Vancouverite, I am blessed with so many fun fitness activities I can do outside. I spend less time inside fitness studios and more time hiking, running on the local trails, doing hill drills to improve my race pace, stair sprints at wreck beach, climbing the Grouse Grind, and biking up at Whistler. But also, during the summer months, after a great cardio session, there’s quite often champagne!
This is the season when the invites and opportunities to get together with friends and sip champagne are endless. Rosé Champagne on the boat, rosé all day at the beach, champagne on your favorite patio, backyard parties, sneaking out of work early for happy hour, picnics in the park, pool days, outdoor concerts, glamping or poppin’ bottles just because it’s a beautiful Monday evening.
There’s nothing like good tunes to jolt you out of bed on those groggy morning and motivate you on your early run. For that reason, FIT & Flirty’s put together our second 90-minute bubbly-inspired iTunes playlist chock-full of champagne poppin’ beats.
These songs will keep you pushing through your tough cardio session, or even better, bring these beats to your next glass-clinking party. This summer I hope you enjoy every minute of your fitness and every champagne moment! I say YES to both, and so should you!
Running on Champagne II”. playlist was made for you!

Mother’s Day, my birthday and Nate’s birthday all fall in this month and we love celebrating! In previous years, this month of celebration would have been just cause in my mind to take a break on all things “health and wellness” but NOT ANYMORE!
I believe in living a lifestyle that is as balanced as possible. As a mom, wife, full-time special education teacher and an online health & wellness coach I am BUSY! I focus my nutrition on eating by the 80/20 rule. That’s 80% healthy and 20% treats–or even cleaner on most weeks. This lifestyle has completely changed my life. It helped me lose 30 pounds when I first decided to make a change and then 40 pounds after having Gabe. I’m not about to look back!
Eating healthy and doing at-home fitness programs has allowed me to find the balance I need in my life. I stay on track as much as possible and allow myself to have treats without guilt. I absolutely LOVE baking and being in the kitchen, it’s a huge passion and hobby of mine; and cupcakes are my favorite! I also like to take existing recipes and put a fun, and healthier spin on them. Check out the recipes section of the blog to find some inspiration for your next meal planning!
I partnered with FIT and Flirty an athleisure and lifestyle brand whose mission is to
“encourage every single lady to recognize that no matter where she is on her fitness journey, she is beautiful, powerful, and should be celebrated.”
When I connected with the owner, Anna on Instagram I was so excited! She’s one of the kindest most motivated women I have ever met, and we have the same goals about sharing the message of living a balanced, healthy & active lifestyle.
We brainstormed together to bring you my “healthy” spin on the Vanilla Cupcakes with Champagne Buttercream Frosting. Inspired of course, by our mutual love for bubbly and health & wellness. The cupcake is a health(ier) take on a typical cupcake. The frosting is a treat–so make sure to enjoy every bubbly bite!
Without further ado–let’s get baking!
Below are the ingredients you will need for My Special Champagne Cupcake
Vanilla Cupcake Ingredients
1 cup almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup unsalted grass-fed butter (you may also use earth balance vegan sticks!)
3/4 cup coconut sugar
4 large eggs
1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Champagne Frosting Ingredients
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
3 cups powdered sugar
2 tbsp champagne (of choice!)
Baking Cupcake Instructions
Preheat oven to 350°F
Place cupcake liners into your baking pan, set aside.
Combine almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl; mix well. Set aside.
Cream together 1/2 cup unsalted butter and coconut sugar in a mixing bowl; beat on medium speed for approximately 1 minute.
Add eggs one at a time; beat until well blended.
Add 1/4 cup almond milk and extract; beat until blended. (The mixture will look watery–do NOT worry!)
Add almond flour mixture to butter mixture slowly; beat until creamy; scraping the sides of the mixing bowl as needed
Spoon batter into prepared cupcake pan; filling liners about 3/4 full.
The batter will be a bit sticky. Spoon it into the cupcake liners and gently smooth the tops as best as you can. (don’t worry too much about the tops because–well, CHAMPAGNE FROSTING!)
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
After 5 minutes transfer to cool on a baking rack.
and now for the champagne frosting…. YUM!
Cream butter in mixture until very smooth
Add 2 cups of powdered sugar 1/2 cup at a time, blending each cup until smooth.
Add in 2 tbsp of champagne, mix thoroughly
Add in final cup of powdered sugar, blend until smooth
(optional) add in a fun natural food coloring to make it your favorite color!
These are the perfect treat for birthdays, Mother’s Day or any celebration. ESPECIALLY if you love champagne & cupcakes! Enjoy!
10 tips on how to move from “feeling” inspired to taking inspired action!
On Friday I post this on Instagram –
“One life. Just one. Why aren’t we all running like we are on fire towards our wildest dreams?” 🔥 The message from @thechampagnediet is to live life vibrantly, fully, taking care of your body & investing in your happiness. Her podcast “Style Your Mind“, her multiple books and over all business message gave me the courage to start FIT & Flirty – thank you Cara for your inspiration xo. 💕 In fitness, in business and in life, what allows you to reach your goals is YOUR MIND SET!
Then, I started thinking… What if I never took “inspired action” from the sparks of inspiration I got from Cara? Well for starters, you wouldn’t be reading this…
I was drawn to the The Champagne Diet (for obviously reasons). I love Cara’s style and her podcast “Style your Mind” and books have so much valuable content. What resonates with me and has the biggest impact is her authenticity and openness about her success; it did not come over night! Cara had another career and worked her side hustle for a long time; blogging and self publishing books on amazon for over 9 years! Her brand did not miraculously explode. The way she honestly shares the struggles, hard work and persistency she experienced was, and still is, greatly reassuring to me.
My first inspired action in March of 2018, was googling “how to start your own e-commerce business” and based on what I learned I put together an initial budget and timeline to launch. Trust me when I say I had NO plans to be in ANY of the photos, there was no consideration of a second collection within the first year and if you told me I’d build an ambassador team (of f*cking fabulous women around the world) I would have said you’re bat shit crazy! The thing is, when you’re doing what you love and take inspired action every single day, momentum takes over and before you know it your ideas to “sell champagne and fitness inspired t-shirts” has evolved into a something that has a much bigger purpose.
Today FIT & Flirty is a women’s athleisure and lifestyle brand that promotes a healthy, active and balanced life style. Our mission is to encourage every single lady to recognize that no matter where she is on her fitness journey, she is beautiful, powerful and should be celebrated. Raise a glass to your fit & fabulous life!
So if you’ve been sitting on an idea, or dreaming about a goal for sometimes now – I dare you to take ONE inspired action TODAY!!
Here are FIT & Flirty’s 10 easy tips to help you take daily inspired action
1. Right now, open a new tab in google and do some research.
2. Email or call someone who has inspired you and ask them if they have a minute to talk about how they got started.
3. At the start or each week, make a list of to do items. Check off at least ONE thing a day, and keep adding to the list as needed.
4. Share you dream/goal/idea with someone who will support and encourage you.
5. Set mini milestones; for example buy a URL and set up a slash page by June 2019.
6. Take advantage of FREE resources at your disposal. You can learn almost anything online with the free e-books, webinars, social tools and much more!
7. Stop comparing and start supporting women.
“At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each one of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.” – Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)
8. Learn to love the journey of learning, evolving and growing because as business owner, there is no final destination.
9. Drop the fear of failing or caring what people might say.
10. Throw away the step by step plan, I can guarantee once you start the there will be major detours.
We all have different starting points, but the emphasis is we all have to START! So, my beautiful souls, what inspired action will you take today towards your dreams?

Regardless of your current relationship status I highly encourage all you ladies to get out and celebrate Galentine’s Day on February 13.
Your girlfriends are always there for you, listening to all your horrible online dating stories, wiping your tears when “what’s his name” broke your heart, even though she told you he was no good, and knew you’d easily forget his name.
A true friend has helped you move, supported your crazy ideas, held your hair back over the toilet, and has seen you at your best and loved you at your worse. No matter what, she’s your biggest cheerleader. She also knows all your secrets, so if you ever “break-up” you’ll have to kill her!
So coupled or not, on February 13, leave your man at home and go out on a date with your BFFs. Honestly, do you really need an excuse to hang out with your lady friends and let them know just how much they mean to you?
“Whether you’re throwing up or breaking up, you want your girlfriend right there! I don’t trust women who don’t go to their girlfriends.” — Drew Barrymore
In no specific order, here are FIT & Flirty’s 5 Ways to Celebrate Galentine’s Day with Champagne!
1. Host a mimosas and waffle brunch for the ladies who want to celebrate in Leslie Knope style! I can’t think of a better way to honor the founding mother of Galentine’s day.
2. Binge watch the classic love stories – Hair up, lululemon’s on and head over to your bestie’s house with a few bottles of champagne and pizza. Ryan Gosling is everyone’s perfect man in The Notebook, Patrick Swayze’s hot moves in Dirty Dancing will get your heart thumping, and “The Bridges of Madison County” will have you reminiscing and crying about the “one that got away”.
Don’t tell me you miss me, tell me you’re outside with a bottle of champagne.”
3. Get your sweat on – those who sweat (and sip) together stay together. Try a new fitness class and get your sweat on! Have you ever heard anyone say, “damn I shouldn’t have done that workout?” Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that leaves you feeling happier, more relaxed and of course BEAUTIFUL!!! Don’t forget to hydrate with a glass of your favorite bubbly!
4. Go out with your lady soul mate(s): Put on your best shoes and hit the town with all your single gals. Remind each other how lucky you are to have each other in your lives, how amazing you are and then raise a glass to your FIT & fabulous life!
“Being single used to mean that nobody wanted you. Now it means you’re pretty sexy and you’re taking your time deciding how you want your life to be and who you want to spend it with.
5. Lunch and pamper – you and your bestie don’t ever apologize for your high standards. You like the finer things in life, and you’re damn classy! Celebrate your greatness with white gloved lunch at the Club, sip on a few glasses of Dom Perignon then unwind after your stressful day with a facial and massage. Come on, you know you deserve it!
“Galentine’s Day” has transcended the television screen and become established in everyday culture. On February 13, Galentine’s Day, a non-official holiday, is celebrated as a day for “ladies celebrating ladies.”

Here’s a few suggestions on how to incorporate champagne into your Halloween celebrations.
Raise a glass to the spooky spirits!
I’m sure many of you plan on celebrating with friends by drinking copious amounts of alcohol. So let me be the one to remind you to always respect the dead and honor them with glass! Raise a glass in style with champagne!
Ernest Hemingway’s favorite way to kill an afternoon was with a cocktail made with a shot of absinthe topped with Champagne. In somewhat of a publicity stunt, he named his favorite drink Death in the Afternoon, the same name of his 1932 novel, and submitted it to a celebrity recipe book in 1935. In his instructions, he suggested three to five of these drinks at a time—that’s certainly one way to send you to an early grave!!
Side note – I tried these at the Hemingway Bar in the Ritz in Paris. They will knock you on your ASS!! I stopped at TWO!!!
Death in the Afternoon – Champagne Cocktail
What you will need
1/4 – 1/2 ounce absinthe
sparkling wine (dry)
1 dash simple syrup, optional (1:1, sugar:water)
Add absinthe and simple syrup (if using) to a flute.
Slowly top with chilled, sparkling wine.
Notes – Choose a good, dry sparkling wine or Champagne, because absinthe has a particular flavor profile, some may prefer more or less. Though the original recipe calls for a prodigious one-and-a-half ounces of absinthe, we prefer to remain standing after one cocktail. Contemporary versions, including ours, call for a lighter pour.

Poppin’ costume ideas
We all love dressing up for a Halloween costume party! If you want to stand apart from all the ghosts, goblins, vampires and witches check out these three fresh and classy champagne inspired Halloween costumes; right up my alley!
WICCA and Modern Witchcraft
The modern form of witchcraft known as Wicca was founded in England in the 1950’s. Its members worship nature, and a female goddess. They take an oath to do no harm with their magic. Contrary to many beliefs Wicca is a very peaceful, harmonious and balanced way of life which promotes oneness with the divine and all which exists. There are now more than 400,000 Wiccans in the United States. But you probably won’t recognize them walking in the streets, since they don’t wear pointy hats.
So maybe on this Halloween you want to stay in and conjure up some self-case by indulging in a WICCA BATH SPELL – yes it involves champagne!
Whoever you decide to celebrate don’t forget to close all the doors and windows because on October 31, the spirits are out in the open looking to have fun! Be safe, strange things happen on Halloween night.
If only running out of champagne counted as cardio!!
It’s that time a year when it gets really hard for me to stay motivated. Daylight is lacking and it’s cold & wet outside. Plus the holiday season is sneaking up… and my schedule is about to get super hectic! I’m sure you can relate.
As soon as I must wear more than one layer to run outdoors, I find myself saying “I’ll go in a prosecco…” and I also find myself drinking way more bubbly at this time of year. “Fizz the season” right? Thanksgiving, Christmas parties, New Year’s and then my birthday. So really, I should be running more, not less.
For many runners, it doesn’t matter if you’re in the middle of marathon training or jumping on the treadmill to burn off those champagne calories; a good music can often make the difference between a fabulous run or skipping it all together.
That’s why I put together this 90-minute bubbly inspired iTunes playlist chock-full of champagne poppin’beats to keep me moving between all the holiday festivities!
So, if you’re a runner but also like to indulge in sipping champagne, my latest mix is a great for any run! I’m sure it will help you get in the true holiday spirit and keep you running strong! But you’ll probably be super thirsty by the time you get home! What’s your favorite champagne inspired song?
