New Years Intentions & Upcoming Events in 2020

Happy New Year!🍾✨ As we begin a new year (and new decade!), I always try to set some goals and intentions to improve my life in the coming year. These goals and intentions are framed a bit differently than traditional resolutions, which to me, feel more pressured and like you have to achieve no matter what. My goals and intentions are things that I truly want for myself and my wellbeing. I don’t feel immense pressure to achieve them, and I’m working on them at my own pace and on my own terms. If you’re setting your goals and intentions for 2020, you can get some ideas on things you may wish to achieve in my post down below and you can see my process on how I plan my goals and intentions for the year!

Holiday Gift Guide 2019

We are on to our sixth day of my #12DaysOfChristmas series! Have you been liking this series so far?

In my opinion, that’s much better than my money going to big corporations! And with the amazing quality of these products, they are much better than any shopping mall gift any day!  Picot Collective Honey Tobacco Candle  This has been my favourite candle discovery of the DECADE thanks to my friend Alex! She introduced me to this local company, Picot Collective, and I have loved their signature fragrance: Honey Tobacco. Apart from what you may infer from the name, the candle does not smell like …

Our Engagement Story

Today, David and I are celebrating our first year of engagement! I can’t believe that exactly one year ago today, he got down on one knee and asked to me to spend the rest of my life with him. Not that I thought this would never happen, I just didn’t expect it…at all! And when he pulled out that beautiful ring, it totally sealed the deal <3  To celebrate this wonderful occasion, I thought I would share our engagement story with you all and let you know what is up next for us on this amazing journey together.  Celebrating our engagement anniversary yesterday! The Plan So let me say upfront that I was completely shocked when David proposed. I knew that we would be together eventually, but he kept everything under wraps so well that I didn’t even suspect a thing. And it’s hard to get things past me; I can always pick up on when something is going to happen or can feel when something is off.  On the evening before he proposed, David …
