How I Organize My Week

Thursday, February 20, 2020

Hello, friends! If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I've been dealing with a horrible case of mono and have been very house / bed bound. It's been brutal! But this week, I'm trying to get myself back on some sort of schedule, and excited to see how it goes. I suspect, it'll be slowww! But in all honesty, I'm ready for slow, and ready to put my wellness & health at the top of my list. All too often, I push, and push, until I'm pretty much ready to collapse, and needless to say, it's starting to take a toll on my health and well being. Old lady problems, am I right?! ;)

My First Sugaring Experience!!

Thursday, January 30, 2020

This past weekend, I had my first sugaring experience at Sugaring Change in Port Moody, and I loved it!! Chantelle, the owner, invited me down, and she's quite possibly the sweetest & most caring person I've ever met. She honestly made my first sugaring experience such a breeze, continually checked in (because I'm a big chicken after all, haha) and made sure I felt comfortable, and wasn't finding anything too painful, which I didn't. At all! If you're used to waxing?! This is a far cry from that and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised / a convert. I know I am!!

New Year, New Wishlist

Tuesday, January 21, 2020

A new year definitely calls for a new wish list. And I must say, I absolutely love them!! It keeps me motivated to save, work hard, and sets a reminder to treat myself. On that note, lately I've been feeling a little bit guilty over my love of fashion because I never want to come across as too materialistic, or like that's all I have to offer, or worse yet, I'd hate to promote manic shopping culture. Thanks to Instagram and YouTube I've become all too aware of just how much people shop and consume, and considering the state of our planet, I find it very alarming. But at the same time, I do believe in treating myself for birthdays and other special occasions. What's your take?

Hello, friends. Happy 2020! So happy to be back, even though I'm currently writing this post while sipping on hot tea and fighting off a very lingering & unforgiving flu. But better days are to come, and in the meantime, I'm excited to be sharing our spa day at Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. It was the perfect way to ring in the new year and I'm quite certain we'll be making this a yearly tradition. It was so nice!! Plus, I'd love to take you around our city a little more in 2020 and show you what we're up to. My love of Vancouver runs deep!! Have you visited before?...

Merry Christmas, Friends!

Yay!! Happy Holidays, friends! I'm so excited it's here. Martin & I are off for two weeks and we can't wait to sip all the spiked egg nog, cuddle with the furs and get cozy at home. I've switched things around some more since these photos were taken. I added red & white striped pillows from Ralph Lauren to our sofa, this wooden farmhouse tray to our coffee table and a few more bottle brush trees around our home. What can I say, I love seasonal decorating!! And if you're still hoping to add a last minute something?! I can't recommend Pottery Barn enough - they're our absolute fave and always have the most delightful things.

Black Cocktail Dress For Christmas Party

Zara Dress (similar), Zara Belt, Chanel Wallet On Chain, Aldo Heels (similar)

This is my last outfit of 2019. Crazy! However, I'll be back with our X-mas portraits / a peek of our home, and then I'm off for two weeks. This is honestly my fave time of year!! Our home is cozy, our pup is rocking his holiday sweater, and we can't wait for all the fancy festivities, plus hosting loved ones in our home. I live for these days!! As I mentioned, we've also booked time at the Four Seasons Hotel spa, and we're definitely counting down to that too!! As for what I've been wearing?! I've breathed new life into my fave black shift dress by adding a gorgeously jewelled belt, and wearing my Chanel WOC as a clutch. The perfect statement and I love how classic and timeless this outfit feels.

The Best Ordinary Products For Anti-Aging

Tuesday, December 17, 2019

In my circle of girlfriends, I'm the go-to for all things skin care related and I love it! One of the things I'm asked often is if I'm familiar with The Ordinary line and which of their products I would recommend for anti-aging. So voila, a blog post was born! I've been using all three products for a total of three months and I'm thrilled to see visible differences in my skin. My top noticeable improvements have been an even and brighter skin tone, more glow, and less fine lines. I use my Buffet Serum in the morning, then apply my Vitamin C cream and use my Retinol in the evening (if you'd like to use it in the morning, be sure to apply sunscreen). Let's dive in!
