    How to not give a f**k this Christmas

      WARNING: If “curse-words” offend you, then this post might not be for you.  OR you can just replace the naughty words with “puppy”.  Happy reading 😊 Blog post title inspired by my current read “The subtle art of not giving a f*ck” by Mark Manson.  Hear me out, this post really IS in relation to having a guilt-free (or pretty close to) Christmas Holiday. While reading Manson’s book, a quote stood out to me: WHAT do we give a f*ck about? What are we CHOOSING to give a f*ck about? And how can we not give a f*ck about what ultimately does not matter?   With Christmas & New Year…

    7 things I learned in 2017

    As 2017 draws to a close, I thought I would reflect back on the things that I learned from the past year 😃 1. Surrounding yourself with good people is just as important as breathing. As I get older, the more I realize the importance of surrounding myself with good people – the kind that inspire me, support me and understand me.  This year, I have really learned the it’s okay if some people don’t stay in your life – myself and everyone else will evolve and change and not everyone is meant for each other.  It’s okay to let go, as long as you are happy. 2. Money is meant…

    how to move from “INTERESTED” to “COMMITTED”

    Occasionally, I run into a podcast episode that I get obsessed with and SOMETHING just clicks and resonates with me at the time. The last time this happened was with Angie Lee’s “Rich B*tch” podcast where I shared with you guys the highlights.  You can find the blog here.   This morning it happened again! I was listening to one of my fave podcasts on my way to work and it’s the “Earn Your Happy” podcast with Lori Harder.  The topic for the day was knowing the difference between being INTERESTED in doing something towards your goals and being COMMITTED to your goals.  This is so relatable for me right…

    my four favourite ways to destress and practice self-care

      I’ve always been a fan of self-care and self-love.  it’s definitely not something that comes easy to me (or a lot of people for that matter) but ever since I have learned to take care of myself more, I have noticed a big difference in every aspect of my life.  without getting too deep into it, I think self-care and self-love is SO unbelievably important because first and foremost, YOU are the most important thing there is and YOU should be taking care of yourself so that you can function at your highest and most abundant self and from there, everything else will flourish, including your relationships, your health,…

    3 types of fear & how i am learning to overcome them

    today i wanted to show social media ME. this photo is of my naked face – sans makeup, some redness, hair still braided from the night before, unbrushed and with frizzy bits.
