When it comes to collagen, it would be surprising if you haven't heard about it before. But some people are still confused; so what is collagen? One of the building blocks of health, this protein can be found throughout the body but is the most abundant in skin, bones, muscles and joints. Thanks to collagen, we're able to move, bend and stretch. Collagen also is behind keeping our hair shiny, skin glow and nails super strong. It seems as if collagen got popular overnight and has been found in so many health food and skincare items!
When the weather gets cold, there's nothing better than getting cozy in a long-sleeved sweater sipping hot cocoa. Although brides don't usually walk down the aisle in sweaters, long-sleeves are definitely a nicer option when it comes to choosing a wedding dress. Before doing research on long-sleeved wedding dresses, I was a bit nervous because I was assuming only traditional, modest and conservative looking dresses would show up. Thankfully, there are lots of options for winter brides looking for long-sleeved options!
For some, winter is the season that you stay indoors. For others, there's no view that's more romantic than a fresh blanket of snow on the ground. Winter weddings in pictures are the most cinematic and magical and a glamorous winter wonderland wedding ceremony can be achieved with little effort! I've got some winter wedding ideas that are sure to wow your guests and make your day spectacular!
Yesterday, I posted an Instagram photo with a caption that I had been thinking about for a while. It's been at the back of my mind and I have been wanting to write about how to overcome your fears for a while now, but couldn't get over the anxiety and stress that came with reliving these situations and feelings. Over the past month, I had been reflecting on my life and I wasn't happy with where I was. I had to learn how to stop living in fear. It's kind of sad for me to even read what I'm typing, but it's true. (It also probably doesn't help that I'm currently listening to some 80's angst-ridden songs...) In terms of my personal life, I might go more in detail in the future, but let's just say that I had lost my creative spark and was working for someone that didn't believe in my professional abilities.
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!
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!
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.
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!
Heading into the 11th year of the Green Living Show, the Metro Convention Centre holds 400+ vendors. This 3 day event features natural green products and services available to Canadians. Considered as one of the largest consumer eco-show of the region, the Green Living Show discusses different ways to lead a steady, healthy life in society in the Wellness, Health & Fitness industry.
Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of attending the media preview of the 2017 Green Living Show. This year's Green Living Show is taking place at the Metro Convention Centre April 7th-9th in downtown Toronto. Running for its 11th year, there were many innovative products being featured from this year's show at the preview. I took a few photos to show you what happens at a media preview.
