You guys, this was actually one of the hardest blogs that I have ever written. I read this book by Rachel Hollis and was torn if I should even review it or not. Why? Because, I honestly don’t think many people understand self help and self love. In my experience you either get it or you don’t and it can easily be misconstrued. And I have been on both sides.
When it comes to makeup, I am no beauty expert but I have learned over time there is a big difference between a enjoyable beauty item and a must have! There are items in my beauty collection that if I run out, I am almost in despair! The products featured today I use almost on the daily and am personally obsessed with.
Getting a little more personal on the blog today because it surprised me to learn how many woman are struggling (or have struggled in the past) with iron deficiency. In fact, a quick search in google and a tap into Statistics Canada informed me that iron deficiency affects 20 to 25% of the world population and is more common in women than men.
With every NEW year, I realize just how “short” the time span truly is. And I will admit, as tired as people may be of the themes that come at this time of year, I love reflecting on the ups AND the downs and setting new goals! I generally find that the hard times was where I grew and the exciting times motivated me to keep going and keep GROWING! Because no matter how much we like to admit it, without growth in our lives, we remain stagnant. And if we remain stagnant, in my opinion, we are going backwards.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace“. Isaiah 9: 6-7.
This December I have been all about the comfiest and cutest at home wear because I am SUCH a home body!!! I am very much a hermit at heart and my home is my safe place. And there is something so magical about a home at Christmas time. I know with all of my heart that it’s Jesus, the reason of the season filling our hearts with pure love and joy.
Benjamin and I have been working hard on getting the last few details in the kitchen ready to share with you and I thought it would be great to combine with adorable lounge wear that is perfect for at home!!!
I managed to persuade my mom and sister to take pictures in front of the tree in my FAVORITE at home clothes (that are not pajamas or lounge wear). The beloved sweater dress and over the knee socks. I wanted to share a few tips when ordering as it was a bit of a journey myself to track down the right items. P.S. I am also wearing my favorite slippers that I ordered online from Target. They are the warmest, coziest and amazing quality.
What a weekend! All I wanted for my 30th (still can’t believe I am leaving my twenties) was to be surrounded by my favorite people! I was definitely missing a few but my mom and my little sister came all the way from Alberta to celebrate with me! Best Birthday gift ever!
