This Weeks Mood | Spring

Spring has yet to bloom in the North, and we have had what has felt like a 4 day snowstorm. Not even kidding. But, I am so determined for spring I have just ignored the cold snow and decided that this week, no matter what, I will dress like spring has started to bloom. I am desperate people!

 This week I am feeling so inspired with light nudes and taupes. Baggy, oversized tops are so in right now and I am in love with how they are styled in these photos! Blazers and trousers are also killing it at the moment and are definitely becoming a staple in my wardrobe!

Hola! How is everyone on this Easter Sunday / April Fools Day? I’m currently cooking my breakfast and eating chocolate while I wait. haha!

If your anything like me, you love to know what people are up to. My favourite youtube videos and blog posts are the ones that show the little things in someones life. Like doing laundry, cleaning time-lapses, and those that are titled “what’s in my…”. So, today I have gathered the 3 things you will always find in my shower. Enjoy!

1. SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER // I have never really ‘LOVED’ a brand of shampoo before. However, this one by Love Beauty & Planet has my heart! I use the Tea Tree infused one because it’s great for scalp health, and I tend to have oily hair. I also love what the brand stands for, they are cruelty-free, vegan, organic, ethically sourced, and have no Parabens, dyes, or Sulfates. The bottles are also made from 100% recycled plastic and the formula is a ‘quick rinse’ formula so you don’t have to use so much water.

2. BODY WASH // I also use the Love Beauty & Planet body washes. The scents are to die for, and they follow all of the same guide lines as the shampoo and conditioners! They leave my skin feeling heavenly, and lathers my skin in a rich, guilt free feeling. I’m just waiting on a lotion! Hopefully soon! haha.

3. FACE WASH // I don’t always wash my face in the shower, but I do get lazy every now and then. It’s better washing it in the shower then not washing it at all. However, whether I am washing my face in the sink or in the shower I always use my ‘Soy Face cleanser by Fresh. It cleans my face, even water proof mascara, without leaving a film on my face and doesn’t completely strip my face and dry it out. This is a must try if you have oily to combination skin!

Stop and Smell the Oils!

All I have heard people talk about in 2018 is essential oils and their beloved diffuser. It got me wondering why everyone was so obsessed with such a simple thing. After doing some research about the uses of essential oils and their benefits, I too must admit I am hooked!

Some of my favourite uses of essential oils are:

1. Headaches // I have never really liked taking medication for something as simple as a headache. But lately I have been caving into it as I have been getting them more and more. SO ANNOYING!

Until the wonders of essential oils came my way. I put a little lavender oil on my temples as I find it works best for me. When I am home I also like to make up my own concoction of rosemary, lavender and peppermint oils in my diffuser and it works wonders!

2.  Sleep // I find my headaches are often a sign effect of my insomnia. I have tried many, many ways to help it and nothing seemed to work.

Until now. About 30 minutes before I go to bed I put a few drops of lavender in my diffuser beside my bed. By the time I roll over, it takes me another 30 minutes to fall asleep. And for someone with insomnia, 30 minutes is record breaking for me!

3. Relaxation // With everyday hustle and bustle I sometimes find it hard to just sit down and relax. When I do, I love putting different essential oils in a diffuser to make sure I reach maximum relaxation! haha. Some of my favourites for relaxation are Lavender (again I know), Ylang Ylang, Rose and Chamomile.

4. Waking up // I am usually a morning person, but lately I have been wanting to sleep in later and later. I don’t no what it is, maybe it’s the never ending winter here in northern Canada, or the fact that I’m only 3 months away from graduating high school and have  a bad case of what my family studies teacher calls ‘senioritis’.

The one thing I have found helps me get my mornings started is putting a little orange, lime, lemon and linaloe wood oils in my diffuser when I wake up and am getting ready for my day.

6 Tips for Spring Cleaning

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Winter is slowly, but surely coming to an end. HURRAY!! Meaning we can finally come out of hibernation! haha. Along with hibernating all winter, I find myself not letting go of much, and my room tends to get over-crowded and nothing has been given a good, proper clean.

But to be honest, spring cleaning hasn’t always been something that excited me. In fact, I never really did a full spring cleaning up until last year.  And after I did it, I noticed such a difference in my mood. Cleaning the winter grime away completely changed my mind from hibernation mode, to spring mode! So, I decided to give my top 6 tips to make spring cleaning a little more bearable.

  1. OPEN WINDOWS : After having your windows shut all winter it tends to make your home feel stuff, with stale air. Opening the windows brings fresh air into the home. I also love to light some floral scented candles, or putting some nice essential oils in my diffuser.

“cleaning it ALL seems daunting”

2. ROOM BY ROOM : When stepping back and looking at your entire home, cleaning it ALL seems daunting. But tackling one room at a time makes it so much more bearable! I also find I clean a lot more thoroughly when I do it one room at a time.

3. REMOVE EVERYTHING : It’s such a task to clean around everything, and move everything one by one as you clean. So, remove everything other than the big furniture in the room! Not only is it more convenient, you’ll also give everything a deeper clean. This is also a great time to throw your sheets in the wash and give them a deep clean.

“Spring cleaning is the perfect opportunity to go through your belongings”

4.SORT AS YOU PUT BACK : After you deep clean, don’t just put everything back the way it was. Spring cleaning is the perfect opportunity to go through your belongings and get rid of anything you no longer like, use or wear!

5. DONATE : Instead of just throwing away all the things you no longer want and letting them go to waste, donate it! One mans trash is another mans treasure after all! Donating is also a great way to shrink your carbon foot print. And while your at the thrift store look for some new things to decorate your home for the spring!

Screen Shot 2018-03-18 at 10.49.42 AM6. PLANTS : Plants are all the rave atm! And there is no better way to bring the spring into your home then adding some house plants and flowers!  Not to mention the mood lifter having colour and greenery in your home is!

Who Run The World?

GIRLS!

Today is International Women’s Day, a day that stands for women’s rights. It feels like this years is more important and relevant then ever. With everything happening in the United States, the #timesup and #metoo campaigns I feel as though this day means so much more this year.

Before I go any further I just want to say sorry. To any women who I called pretty or beautiful, before I complimented the thing that matters. Before I told you that you are smart, intelligent, brave, strong. Before I told you how extraordinary you are. I am sorry I automatically put your worth to how you looked.

I’m gonna say it. Women are bad a**! And when women support each other, incredible things happen.

We fight for the future, not the past. 

We fight for our children, for our own futures. In the last few years I have never been more proud to say yes, I am a Millennial. Cause what we are doing is going to make history books, we’ll make sure of it. We hold world wide rally’s. No matter what city, or country or time zone. We make it happen, we have voices and they are going to be heard.

I know this may seem a little all over the place, but I am just so proud to be female and be apart of a time that has so many advances, with so many strong women. I am female, and I am proud.

SPRING | 5 Must Have Transition Pieces

***

Spring is here!… kinda. Here in the north the weather has gotten to that stage where you need a jacket when you leave in the morning, and are overheating in the afternoon. It’s such a long, annoying time of year. And it’s even more annoying to dress for it.

 These are some must have pieces in my wardrobe for this time of year!
1. High waisted denim. Not only is it a huge trend at the moment, but they are comfier then skinny jeans, and are so easy to style! Pair them with a cropped sweater and either sneaker or some booties.
2. Cropped sweaters. These are essentials in my closet for anytime of year.
3. Basic t-shirts. You can never go wrong with a basic T, some mom jeans sneakers and an oversized blazer this time of year.
4. Booties. With all the snow melting I love wearing some booties. They are warmer then sneaker, can be dressed up or down, and don’t look like a big winter boot.
5.  Trench or blazer?  I love both, they add just the right amount of warmth in the morning and don’t cause you to over heat in the afternoon. Not to mention they are some of the biggest trends at the moment!
