DIY Wedding Favours

I'm back with the Wedding Wednesday posts! If you're a new reader, let me fill you in! I'm engaged and have been writing a few Wedding Wednesday posts to get prepared for the big day. As much fun as planning can be, no one told me how many things I need to account for! From save the dates, to invitations to party favours... the options are endless. That's why every Wednesday  is dedicated to weddings to help give you ideas for your future wedding, and to document my own experiences!

How to Organize Your Life

Over the past few days, I've been getting myself organized since it's a new month. I was thinking about what my daily activities consist of and I realized a lot of time is actually spent finding things or trying to remember who I need to send out emails to. This was fairly embarrassing because I didn't realize just how much time I wasted! (Seriously, it's not good!) I buckled down and got working on organizing my life and poof! I answer emails same day now. I'm pretty proud!

2017 Top Podcasts I Love

Although I've listened to podcasts before, I started having shorter commutes and fell out of love with them. Although they're great to listen to as a way to pass time, I discovered that listening to them with meaning is so much better. I recently started listening to podcasts again a few months ago and have been listening to them religiously. Every morning, I get up and start my morning routine. While making breakfast, I turn on the computer and listen to my podcasts. To me, there's no better way to start my morning routine.

Beauty Lover Easter Basket Idea

Whether you're young or old, it's always nice to receive goodies at Easter. It's easier to put together things in a basket for kids, but what about the preteens and adults? Sure chocolate is always nice, but sometimes having a more customized basket is nicer. That's why I put together a little post for an Easter basket idea for the beauty lover in your life!

March 2017 Favourites

I've done a few monthly favourites posts before (see here and here) but since they're from years ago, I thought I'd revisit. Each month, I plan on rounding up my favourites and sharing them with you. This month, I rounded up my favourites from all aspects of my blog: beauty, fashion and lifestyle.

Project: Finish Samples

I was looking through my desk the other day and realized I had a ton of clutter. I've been reading a few books that involve minimalism and only owning things that bring you joy. This concept was new to me because growing up, I was very fortunate to have more than I needed. I had more toys than I could play with, and more books than I could read. Minimalism is becoming a very hot topic in modern society because we take a lot for granted. Think about it: when are you going to wear that sweater that still has the tags on it? After reading these books, I realized I need to declutter my life, so why not document it?

Why use Green Beauty?

Over the past few years, I've started noticing that all-natural products are slowly showing up everywhere. So many people I know are turning to a more natural approach to their lifestyle: being more aware of what they put in/on their body, exercising more and taking better care of their health. In a world of fast and immediate, it's sometimes hard to understand why people are taking it slow by taking a step back from their hectic lives. Why natural? Here's a few reasons that I've dabbled in the world of clean living...

6 Ways to Get Mentally Fit for The New Year

If you've been following the news in 2016, you'll know that it was a rough year. With the start of a new year, it's important to reflect back and assess what went well, what didn't and decide where you want your life to go next. It doesn't take wishing and dreaming and coasting on cruise control though, in order to create the life you want, it takes a lot of mental toughness, self-love and discipline. Luckily Dr. Sanam Hafeez PsyD, a NYC based licensed clinical psychologist, teaching faculty member at the prestigious Columbia University Teacher’s College and the founder and Clinical Director of Comprehensive Consultation Psychological Services shares some key ways to get mentally fit for the new year so you can move forward successfully.
