Welcome to Spin Bikes and Opaque Tights! My name is Regena and I am addicted to all things pink. Pink gym bag, pink lipstick, and pink fruit (especially raspberries). Speaking of fruit…I love fruit probably more than I should a lot.

I am a girlie girl, but I don’t mind getting my hands dirty. As a young girl growing up in rural Nova Scotia, some of my chores were outside, but I would always find a way to bring a little fashion to the table–even if it meant begging my mom for pink rain boots to match my gardening gloves and  watering can. Fast forward 20+ years and I am still finding ways to bring that ‘wow’ factor to my look with simple changes.

I was surrounded by fresh produce as a child. My grandparents had an amazing garden, and it’s thanks to this upbringing that I appreciate fresh locally grown produce. My skin is clearer, my mood is brighter, and overall I feel 10 times better when eating fresh organic fruits and vegetables. I love make up, but there isn’t a product out there that can give your skin that radiance you get from being happy, healthy, and properly fuelled from the inside out.

A few fun facts about me…


-I had ‘straight’ hair since before I can remember. April 2011 I decided it was time for a change and I cut off all of my chemically straightened hair to start life as a natural girl. I haven’t looked back.

-If I could eat chocolate cake every day for breakfast, I would. Unfortunately, I like the size of my waist and the sugar would really mess with my mental clarity. 😦

-I once hit my grandfather with a shovel when I realized the chickens he kept in the barn couldn’t be my friends forever. I can’t believe I didn’t become a vegan sooner.

-I workout 6 days a week. Sometimes my workouts are ‘I could be sick right now’ intense, and other times I focus on perfecting my form in a yoga sequence. I take the time to get in a least 20 minutes and surprisingly not because i’m vain, but rather for the way I feel immediately after.

-I have been happily married for 2.5 years to the most amazing man…

-I often wear heels when they’re really inconvenient. (Eg. To the park and then my heel sinks into the grass and I have to stop every 3 seconds to pull myself out, or tiptoe).

-I meditate every morning (even when i’m late) and every evening. Sometimes I only take a minute, but just having those few quiet moments where I focus on positive energy I am really able to centre myself. I suggest you try it, you might be surprised at how much better you feel.

I really hope you enjoy my blog. I am here to learn more about the things I find interesting, but I am also here to pass on what I know.  If you have any questions, please let me know and I will try my best to answer them.
