16 Reasons to Travel Belgium

It has been a year since my trip to Belgium. (starts crying hysterically) Anyway moving along… As a travel obsessed blogger, I thought why not write yet another post about how much I loved this little country? What can I say I am feeling kind of nostalgic over here! 1. The Architecture Belgium was once one of the most powerful regions in Europe. You may be surprised when you travel through the country to see palaces, churches and other buildings with intricate details and amazingly preserved beauty. Dutch homes are freaking magical. In places such as Ghent and Bruges…

May Goals

Guys is it just me or did April freaking fly? Seriously where did this month go? It has been a kind of blah April for moi I must admit, my mood, the weather. It has just been blah. Not bad, just blah. I am still patiently waiting for spring days to inspire my soul, it has been a slow process up here in this icy windy land I call home. I guess all those dresses I keep buying will have to keep waiting for their time to shine. Anyway, I am excited and a little underprepared to head into May…

My Simple 10 Step Self Care Morning Routine

Hi there, welcome back! Self-care is something I love to explore and write about. When I have time/need a pick me up I make a conscious effort the night before to start the next day in the best way possible. Having a self-care morning routine can and will set up your day and spirit to be the best it can be. Starting the day with the intention to take care of yourself will go a long way. Often times it may be hard to find the time for myself during the work week or even the weekend…

Product Review – Pacifica – Kale Detox Deep Cleaning Face Wash

I was in the market for a new face wash, something natural and vegan. (Cause I am cool like that). I was using an olay face wash and it literally ruined my skin. I was sick and tired of the chemical unnatural feeling of the facewashes of my past so I began to research the best natural products. It wasn’t long before I came across Pacifica…

Product Review – Fresh – Rose Deep Hydration Face Cream

I have been really into skin care lately and for the past year, I have been in the market for the perfect face moisturizer. As I don’t generally wear foundation or concealer during an average day it was important to me to find something light and moisturizing without giving me a shiny oily look. Not only that but the type of brand I purchase has to be in line with my own set of morals, as I like to be as conscious of a consumer as possible. I would consider myself fairly low maintenance when it comes to…

Searching for Happiness – Connecting with your True Self

  Who are you? I mean really, who are you? I have been asking this question to myself a lot lately and I must admit the conclusions I came to were a little startling not to mention deep. I realized that any search for happiness, love, and goodness begins with this simple question. Who are you? We are male, female, young, old, daughter, Canadian, married, single, thin, successful. We are categories. We are also our relationships to those categories. At least that is what we identify with at the end of the day. When searching for who we are in…

I hope you can join me this spring season by enriching your life through showing yourself a little extra…

March Goals

Hello, everyone! I am excited to be writing this post! The last monthly goals post I wrote was in March of 2016. Woah time flies! I wanted to get back into the swing of writing these little monthly goals posts because while I was looking at last years posts I felt rather nostalgic to see the plans and things I was up to back then. These kinds of posts are not only a great way to hold yourself accountable but also fun to look back upon. So seeing how March 1st is the traditional beginning of the new year I…
