The Girl

Hi! I’m Amber, a self-proclaimed lover of coffee, wine, beer, good food, being active and girls nights.

Amber Picnic

I live in British Columbia, Canada, which I consider the most beautiful place on earth (not that I’m biased or anything!) I live with my husband Eric and our two pets; a boxer dog named Chloe and an orange cat with thumbs named Webster.

Healthy living is a huge part of my life and focus on my blog. I love training for races and to date I’ve ran a 50 km ultra-marathon, three marathons, five half-marathons and several smaller races. I love all things movement-related though and can often be found doing hot yoga, strength training, hiking, snowboarding or swimming!

I have a degree in journalism and writing is a huge passion of mine. Another passion is traveling. I’ve been lucky enough to visit Europe twice and do a bunch of other small trips around North America over the last few years. You can read more about my travels here.

This blog is about my life, my likes, my dislikes and topics I’ve been pondering. I don’t limit the content on my blog in any way but I tend to write a lot about running, healthy living and travel. I started this blog when I was in my third year of University and it’s come along for the ride as I finished University, backpacked around Europe, started a ‘big girl’ job, bought a house, got engaged, got a dog, started a new career path and got married. Naturally, the content has ebbed and flowed through these big life changes. Thanks to my readers for coming along for the ride!
