I decided to take part in the Winter 10×10 style challenge last month! I was feeling really sick of my “post partum” clothes so I thought that this would be a great way to get me excited about getting dressed in the morning again! And it did help. It forced me to make more of an effort which felt good. I also realized that I do own a LOT of clothes still! I was feeling like hardly anything fits me but really,

I started choosing a word for the year instead of setting resolutions a few years ago. I love it! I love that it is more open ended and not so much about reaching a particular goal. There’s less pressure and more room to grow which is what you really want a new year to be about, right?

Last year my word was ‘daring’ and I’ll be honest, there were multiple times during the year where I felt like I was failing at that!

I’ve been a mom of two for one month now!

I’ll admit I was nervous about going from one child to two. Everyone says it’s a tough transition! And, well, they’re right. Haha But I had thought it’d be the newborn that felt like more work but really, for us, it’s not! Finnley is a pretty chill baby. She sleeps well (as long as she’s with someone) and only cries or fusses to be held/fed/changed.

The first few months (or longer!) can be an awkward time style-wise.  You’re so excited to wear “regular clothes” again but your body looks drastically different. A lot of your clothes probably don’t even fit! But I am a firm believer in dressing for the body you have not the body you want. What I mean is, wear clothes that fit and make you feel awesome NOW! Don’t wait. Trust me, you will be so much happier if you have clothes you feel good in even if your body isn’t as the weight or size that you want it to be at.

Target A New Day OTK Boots:  Finally, I found some over the knee boots that are vegan-friendly, under $50 and fit!! I’m 5’10 so they hit just above my knees. I find the fit very comfortable and super flattering.  They are currently on sale for just $32!! Although the regular price of $39.99 is pretty amazing still

MyBevi water bottle: I picked this up at Target after the previous water bottle I bought turned out to be a fail.

Fall and Winter are my favourite months to diffuse essential oils! Below I’m sharing some of my favourite blends that you can diffuse and have your home smell like Fall. Great thing about essential oils is not only do you get amazing scents but you also get the health benefits!

Of course, not all oils are safe for everyone!  I have made a point to note which blends are not safe for certain people/ages.

A while back I had the pleasure of doing a FB Live with Christina Beckett of Sleek & Sassy Nutrition! We chatted all about sugar. So today I thought I’d share the interview with you all!  I know sugar is always such a hot topic so hopefully this helps clear up some of the confusion for you.

S&S: Tell me a bit about sugar.

I was breastfed as a baby and just always assumed that unless I was actually unable to, I would choose to breastfeed my own children. I understand that this isn’t a choice everyone makes and I’ll admit, sometimes I do feel frustrated when I see a mom choosing formula because she’s afraid breastfeeding will make her nipples weird (or something to that affect) because to me that’s not a strong enough reason to deprive your child of something that is SO SO good for them!

  1. High Powered Blender – Personally I have a refurbished Vitamix and I LOVE it! I use it at least once a day. It doesn’t completely replace a food processor but for smoothies it can’t be beat.
  2. Essential Oils – I’ve linked to NYR Organic since I represent them but there are lots of great companies out there. No, there is not ONE company you must buy from or that has the “best essential oils”.
