Let me just start out by saying that I love my children. They are my pride and joy. My moon and stars. My miracles from heaven. I fought hard to have them here and I wouldn't want my life to look any other way. But there are days I struggle. And I … Continue reading An ode to moms; I see you.
Winter in Canada is usually cold no matter where you go, but here in Alberta, you can bet money on it being -35 more times than anticipated (or wanted). The temperatures are severely cold, but what makes it even worse is how dry the air is. Like, hurt your skin dry. And so... Moisturizing is … Continue reading Garnier SkinActive Moisturizer Review
My husband works shiftwork, so he doesn't get every weekend off like a normal Monday to Friday 9-5. He works 9 days on, 5 days off, which is a pretty decent schedule, with the only downfall being that he only gets every other weekend off. The 5 days off in a row are really wonderful, … Continue reading Weekend in review

I always try to have a batch sitting in my freezer, readily awaiting my moments of weakness. I usually resort to these to keep me from diving into something a lot less … Continue reading Chocolate Coconut Bars
Every girl has that one item of make up that is their "go to" on busy days. For some of us, a quick dusting of blush will be enough to feel refreshed and ready to take on the day. For others, it's some much-needed concealer to hide the fact that we haven't slept an 8 … Continue reading My everyday make up must have
Yesterday we took our 7 month old daughter swimming for the first time. Our toddler now enjoys the water (finally) and our baby girl is fond of bath time, so we thought it would make for a pleasant family day activity. And our assumption was right; Scarlett loved the pool! She was splashing around like … Continue reading Guilt free pizza
I've been working hard over the last 3 weeks to clean up my eating. Not only to lose the rest of the baby weight (although, that is a giant factor as well) but also because I've been dealing with on and off thyroid issue for the last 3 years.
