Book lovin’

Posted: March 24, 2020 | Filed Under: Lifestyle

Hello! How is everyone going? Hope all are doing well! Since we are at home, self isolating, maybe it’s the perfect time to pick up something to read? With all that is going on with the world, let’s focus on the things we CAN CONTROL. Consuming the good & filling your mind with new discoveries, learnings and insights may be a better way than falling into the rabbit hole consuming repeated news and negativity. Below are a list of books I enjoyed reading. Keep in mind I like self-help, spiritual and business books basically Anything that I can learn and help me. (and can possibly help you!) My fiction books are a different story. I’ll be saving that for a […]



No matter what the day brings, Always find Joy.

No matter what the day brings, Always find Joy.

It’s no surprise with what is going on with the world, that we are getting more anxious each day. As we watch the news, & look at social media filled with Covid-19 content, we fall into a rabbit hole that we end up not being productive, worrying about things that we can’t control & wasting such precious time we have, focusing toooo much on days, weeks and months ahead of us. Ever since I’ve been diagnosed with GAD/ & postpartum anxiety 3 years ago, (anxiety, & not depression) I’ve been taught how to handle, manage & cope by the experts. Anxiety is normal. However having severe anxiety can be exhausting and can eventually disrupt/ruin your day to day living. Of […]



FILLING UP WITH THE GOOD

FILLING UP WITH THE GOOD

Posted: March 12, 2020 | Filed Under: Beauty

Ever since I started meditating (consistently), I felt such a big shift in my overall mood & perspective in life. Together with Journaling and watching /listening to helpful books and videos, I just had been obsessed with my routine every morning. Like I crave for it. I must admit, the weather here in Toronto ain’t helping BUT its not about the external factors that should determine our happiness and mood! This, just like anything else requires a lot of practice and truly a journey. Something I’m grateful and proud of— that I dedicate at least 2 hours every morning to myself. To better myself, to get to know myself better. With that, I end up filling my cup with so […]



Dominique Cosmetics’ Latte 2 first Impressions

Dominique Cosmetics’ Latte 2 first Impressions

Posted: February 19, 2020 | Filed Under: Beauty

Dominique Cosmetics came out with a second palette, Latte 2. I super loved the first one she came out with so I was dying to try this out! I know, yet again another “neutral” palette but I’m just a sucker for coffee, lattes, neutrals with pop of colours. Since I live in Canada, I couldn’t dare order through website cause the shipping is ridiculous. However, Im actually so surprised to see this at my local Sephora after a month of it being released. So I grabbed it asap. Ok, so my thoughts, I find the palette a bit chalky compared to the the first palette, I like the pop of colours– strawberry milk most especially. (such fun pretty spring colours) […]
