10 Ways to Avoid Holiday Stress

I’ve had my fair share of holiday hiccups so I feel like I’ve created a solid list to avoid stress based on experience HA. From throwing fitness to the wind to thinking that I weigh 300 lbs and drinking like I do too, in the past I have totally lost my routine during the holiday season. Because of that I’ve constructed ideas that include self-care, self-reflection and self-control! It’s a healthy blend so not to worry, but the key to…

Welcome to Love Island

All right you guys. We are officially in the swing of the holidays and whether you’re celebrating US thanksgiving this weekend or like me and already prepping for Christmas, I have a little something to make those cozy nights at home majorly more enjoyable. Now I’m not sure if you remember but I’ll refresh your memory – one of my closest, dearest friends lives in London UK and I’ve been going to visit him and his friends often because they’re…

Fast Five: My Favorite Face Masks

This is a bit of a different Fast Five because you guys have asked me about my face masks so many times and I seriously just realized I haven’t rounded them ALL up in one post. Here’s the thing: my skin can change week-over-week and with the seasons so I do have a variety of masks that I rotate and can legitimately say are tried and true. I typically do a mask at least 2x per week – and I…

Women Making Waves: NIU BODY

This is about to be one of my favorite Women Making Waves to date. Why do you ask? Because you know my obsession with skin care, my commitment to my youth and my desire to share products that I truly am OBSESSED with. So when I was approached by NIU BODY to chat with the founders, Laura and Connie, I was actually quite thrilled. It’s not always the case that a product I have used religiously (hello lavender toning mist)…

Women (and Men) Making Waves: WELO

So here at i’m a little. I’m not like crazy about Women Making Waves only including women. Obvi we’re all like Girl Power, Spice World Tour 2019 – but just because a company we respect has a male boss babe involved doesn’t mean we’re going to give it the cold shoulder. HELL NO! When I love something, I’m in it to win it and that’s why I think I related so much to Welo – short for We Love – as this entrepreneurial trio…

Fast Five: Are You a Burn Out?

Ok my title is meant to be funny because today, October 17th is the first day that marijuana is legal in Canada. Sadly for some of you, this post is not about cannabis but rather actually burning out – you know, running yourself ragged, so much so, that eventually your body and mental health are negatively impacted by you trying to do it all, without rest or self-care. Given that I just spent the better half of the past month fighting…

Hayu Canada is HERE!

It’s no secret that I’ve been addicted to the hayu Canada app since it launched a few weeks ago. So, because I spent the better part of last week being sick and definitely got to know the app, let’s dive right in to what I’ve been watching, which of the 200+ shows I’m getting ready for next, and why hayu Canada will easily be the best $5.99 CAD I spend each month for my subscription. This past weekend I was…

Taking a Slice of Stitched

There’s a new show airing on Slice in Canada called STITCHED and it is everything you’d want out of a fashion competition series. Nail-biting competitions, beautifully crafted designs and a judging panel of experts who would make even the best designer want to pull out all the stops. And I had a chance to get the inside scoop from two of those judges – Fashion Personality, Joe Zee and Elle Canada’s Editor-in-Chief, Vanessa Craft. Joe Zee What is the top…

Mental Health Day Update

So I’ve apparently been majorly run down because I’ve caught not one but two sinus infections and am taking a sick day to rest up. It’s been a minute since I’ve given a proper life update so I figured why not take a minute  on Mental Health Day to let you know what I’ve been up to. I’ve been very vocal about my own progress dealing with mental health, specifically depression and the changes I’ve made this year have impacted…
