I'm Back. A Whole New Me!

May 18, 2020

Grey tee with mom jeans

Tiny Gold Line Earrings, Tee Zara (bought last year, but love this one, and Madewell can't be beat), Levi's Wedgie Jeans

As I mentioned, on Instagram. Felt inspired, shot content. Might do it again, might not. Haha, the commitment phobia is real. But in my defence, the last five months have been tough! I've spent much of it in bed, running fevers, and barely able to swallow due to the worst throat pain. All thanks to a reactivated case of mononucleosis. So now, more than ever, I'm committed to putting my health first and striving for balance in my life. It's a whole new me!

And the thing is, everyone's version of "balance" is unique to their own set of circumstances. As much as I want to go to all the blogger events, meet & schmooze all the people, and work my butt off on this space... that's just not my current life story, or where my health is at. Admitting that to myself has been incredibly hard, and a tough pill to swallow. For years, I've tried to act "normal," believing my body would just follow suit. But yeah, that hasn't worked out so well. Maybe I'll get there one day, maybe I won't, but that doesn't make my love of fashion or this space any less relevant.

So with that said, I hope I have your support, as I move forward with more honesty, less pressure and continue to dabble & discover myself in this space. Because it must be said, you guys are the best!! You've seen me through re-brands, the ups & downs of my life, and for that, I'm ever grateful. Thank you, and hope everyone's staying safe!! xo

How I Organize My Week

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!!

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

January 21, 2020

Shop The Post:

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?...
