3 Steps for the Ultimate Valentines Day Alone

It’s Valentines Day, and once again I am alone. Not that I’m complaining, I like my me time. Although I feel like leading up to today there has been so many different pressures posted out there. “What are you getting ______”, “Are you spending Valentines Day with ____”, “We are alone so lets all spend the day doing something together”, ” I need to top all of there friends significant others gifts this year”. REALLY??? It’s a day dedicated to showing someone you love them… shouldn’t that be everyday you spend with them?

And know there is even pressure if you don’t have someone to spend it with. Galentines Day… Can’t I just be happy that I’m not with someone at the moment?

So, instead of falling into the pressures that society has tried springing on me, even though I’m single I still have to spend it with friends apparently, I am simply giving myself some extra lovin. haha.

1. Make-up
The first thing I do to begin pampering myself is throw my hair up off my face and take off my 10 hour old make-up. Nothing feels better then washing the dirt and grim of the day off your face.

2. Food
Who says you have to go out for a fancy ass meal? Order take-out and eat it on the couch in your oversized t-shirt! Put on your favourite movie or TV show and relax!

3. Pamper

Ahh yes, my favourite part! Time for the ultimate pamper session. haha. I like to pour a bath with some essential oils or a bath bomb from LUSH! Light some candles, and grab a glass of wine (if legal) and just relax. Let all the tension leave your body. I also like putting a face mask on and follow it with a night-time face moisturizer.
Then I like to put some warm  PJ’s on and cuddle into bed with a favourite movie or binge watch my favourite TV show!

WHAT’S YOUR VALENTINES DAY PLANS???

New York Fashion Week is upon us, meaning all the new trends are coming out! One trend I was particularly excited to see was trench coats. I know they aren’t new, but the variations coming out are stunning! From different fabrics and patterns, to bright colours and pastels, there is a trench coat for everyones taste. Not to mention they are the perfect transition coat to wear this winter/spring. I love how you can pair them with jeans and a t-shirt, or you can layer the trench coat over a dress for a night out.  I found some amazing ones on ASOS.

Los Angeles? …. Faves from my Week



Craving of the week: 
Los Angeles! haha. I went last summer and I am DYING to go back. It is my true happy place.

Favourite Purchase: A book called “Eat Pretty”. It really breaks down the importance of each vitamin, and what they do.

This weeks moment: Finding out I passed all my classes… haha. Truly a weight lifted from my shoulders! 1 more semester to go!

Thought of the week: I am only human, and I wont be able to finish everything that is handed to me. 5 hours of biology homework, finish reading a book we were given yesterday, work for 5 hours and have a proper amount of sleep… yeah okay. I am human and thats not going to happen.

Piece of the week: oversized t-shirt. They are so comfy and look amazing with the front tucked in.

Song of the week: So Much More Than This – Grace VanderWaal

Series of the week: Still no actual series. I need to get on it! haha, but my favourite youtubers this week are Kalel, Cornelia Grimsmo and Anniken!

Instagrammer of the week: Its a tie between Anniken and Cornelia! Both are so amazing!

Quote of the week: “Be the CEO your parents always wanted you to marry” – Unknown

So Much More…

I complain, a lot. To much at times. About dumb things. Like someone taking to long to order their food, or someone rushing past me. But when it’s me it doesn’t matter. I need to change. I need to stop thinking that everything people do is directed towards me. Remember that there is a back story to everything. That the person speeding past me could be rushing to the hospital, or is simply late for work. I need to remember that the world isn’t against me, it’s my brain that’s against me. I need to change my brain, my interpretation of life and the world. I would be happier that way, not so anxious. Life would be so much more happier that way.

Today’s Outfit

I woke up to an empty house this morning. A peaceful silence woke my slumber and I had a moment of sanity. No muffled running around, rushing to get out the door. It was like the world had shut off, just for a moment. Like the world had agreed to stop. I rolled out of bed and felt a shiver run up my spine from the cold floor, bringing me back to life. Like a bucket of ice was thrown on me, it startled me with a jolt. This is real, I am real, I am living this moment, and this moment will not live again, a new one will always replace it. This is my comfort, reality is my safe place. It’s a structure that I rely on, I fall apart without reality. This moment is mine, that I can control. In my own way.
 
WHAT’S YOUR REALITY?

The Beginning of the End

Yesterday was the first day, of my last semester of high school. Ever. I thought I’d be excited, overjoyed and looking forward to what the next chapter of my life will bring. But I’m not. I’m scared. Waking up with butterfly’s in my tummy and a heavy heart I roll out of bed. Today is my last, first day. I thought in Gr. 9 that the next 4 years of my life would be the longest ever, and it felt it. Until today, I feel like I blinked and now it’s almost over. I don’t even want to imagine what I am going to feel on my last day ever.

They say the last 4 years of my life are supposed to be the best of my life. I hope to god they are wrong. The pressure of making high school an amazing experience is huge, and it’s wrong. I hope that from the age of 14-18 are not my best. I hope that they are my worst. Why are we so caught up in making these 4 years of our lives the best? Seeing others try so hard to make these years there best and watching them slowly fade away into a mirage of something else, something that when you look closer isn’t true at all. I hope that these aren’t others best years either. Most don’t remember the fun nights out and tried so hard to have fun that they became the worst nights, in the hospital, playing with the line of death and life, with the only memories being blurry photos taken by their ‘friends’.

My best years are ahead of me. Although it is daunting and eating away at my sanity it feels. The best moments in my life are yet to happen, as well as some pretty horrible ones. My happiness in 10 years will not be determined by the last 4 years of my life. They will be determined by the moment I am living in.

WILL YOU LIVE IN YOUR BEST MOMENTS?
