Gotta support fellow AHole Bro, Kristen in her link-up! here's what new with me: 1) I'm 100% finished my Christmas shopping; in fact, I finished that about 2 weeks ago so now I'm just waiting for everything to arrive so I can either put it together (in the case of... Continue reading

+ I went for a facial last weekend and my esthetician told me something that made my life: that I have the firmest skin she's seen in a long time in any client and that I didn't even need the whole 75 minutes or half the treatments because my skin... Continue reading

There is so much darkness and negativity all over the internet that I like to keep this space light; a place for people to read normal things that are supposed to happen in our lives instead of violence, drama, toxic bullshit and other things with which we tend to be... Continue reading

-- It's only middle of November, and yes, I'm excited for Christmas already....As in the only reason why my decorations aren't up is because my husband refuses to do any of that until December 1. Rude. -- About 90% of my Christmas shopping is done; I'm just waiting for Black... Continue reading

+ I have no idea where my blogging mojo went. I'm getting bored with it, or maybe it's all the shit floating around the internet that's keeping me away. There's way too much drama and garbage that I just don't want to listen or read about anymore. Instead, I've been... Continue reading

Not sure about you folks, but my skin is definitely feeling the effects of the colder temperatures and indoor heat. Want to know what that yields? dry, sensitive, wrinkled skin, that's what. You all know I take really care of my skin because ain't nobody got time to look like... Continue reading

Has the internet calmed down yet? I purposely didn't read the majority of blogs after Tuesday night because I felt there would be major drama and tension and I just wasn't in the mood for that. Instead, I selected posts that had nothing to do with the election, laughed at... Continue reading

Annnnnd we're full swing in November. Is it just me or are the weeks just flying by? The folks in my neighborhood are all up in the Christmas spirit; as in there are some houses who have their entire yard and house decorated with Santa blow-up things and Christmas lights.... Continue reading

And so the Christmas season begins. Don't lie - you know I'm right and you're excited too. Want to know what I'm not excited about? DST. Why does this stupid thing still exist? So now I have to look forward to Kayla getting up at an ungodly hour on Sunday... Continue reading

+ I was too cheap to dole out $50 for Kayla's halloween costume so we did a DIY one. She wanted to be Evie from Disney Descendants but to be honest, she really looked like a fancier version of herself but with blue hair. I actually feel bad about that... Continue reading

Want to know what irony is? attending a wellness event and then waking up sick the next day. For the past 2 days I've been battling a cold that leaves me tired and gross so I've been shoving oil of oregano and ginger/lemon/honey tea down my throat 24/7. The worst... Continue reading

This was going to be a different post but the other day, I got some sad news - my husband's old beach volleyball partner, a guy with whom he used to pass the summer days away at the beaches, is dying of cancer. He's been given about 4 months and... Continue reading

It was a cold one this weekend and the temps in my house dropped to 17C. Still, that's not cold enough to turn on the heat, despite the complaints from my family because cheap china woman. I'll wait till it hits an internal 15C before I turn the heat on... Continue reading

It's the weekend! Hallelujah! Here are my favourite things on this here Friday: + Big books where the story is just amazing. I hate it when a good story comes to an end so I never balk at the size of a book if the story is good; in fact,... Continue reading

Since last weekend was busy as hell with Thanksgiving, I made sure that we had zero plans this weekend because relaxing and being braless for two full days is my jam. + Fall is here - it's cold and rainy and grey, so what does that call for? crockpot stews,... Continue reading

When I saw the above image, it really spoke to me. It's such a simple yet powerful message...also because that kid is freaking adorable. I mean, a toddler dressed in Buddhist clothing? I think my uterus just exploded. But back to this post. I'm a 100% believer in that you... Continue reading

I've been doing this bullet journal thing for a while now so I thought I'd share an update of how it's working for me. By the way, a bullet journal isn't much different from a planner - it just has more pages and a few more 'random' things/thoughts/notes dispersed throughout... Continue reading

With my monies: Although my spending freeze is still in effect, I had to secure our hotel room yesterday for our annual Mount Tremblant trip next year and could not pass up this deal: 40% off room rates, 40% off lift tickets/lessons and free parking for all 5 days. So... Continue reading

Every time I hear this song on the radio, I'm immediately transported to the late 90s when I was 20 and was in the most volatile relationship I've ever had. Looking back, I'd say it was borderline emotional/mental abuse but needless to say, they were terrible years of my life.... Continue reading

This song: that's right; Eddie Murphy dabbled in music making and I love this song. Canned corn. As much as I stay away from canned anything, I love me some canned corn. And yes, I know I could just get corn on the cob and quickly boil it but canned... Continue reading

Welp, fall is definitely here - it's dark when I get up and when I leave the gym. The temperatures are definitely dropping and I had to switch out Kayla's summer blanket with her fall one. We had a fantastic summer; best summer we've had in years with weeks of... Continue reading

My last vacation of 2016 has come and gone and now it's back to reality.... except for me because I was smart enough to block off 3 more days so my first day back at work is Thursday #highfive. In case you were wondering where I went (doubt it), I... Continue reading
