As a strong Christian woman, one of the things I love to do is study my Bible. But I’m not into boring. I can read a lot in a short period of time. I love speed reading. However, I don’t like the idea of things going in one ear and out the other. So. Creativity… Continue reading Study Series | Bible Mapping
I've always found traveling with makeup to be interesting. Mostly because I like to challenge myself by packing in a carry-on - it just makes so much more sense to me. However. This time around, Brian booked our flights and he booked one checked luggage and ZERO carry-ons. ZERO. NOTHING. NADA. ZILCH. So, that means… Continue reading What’s In My Travel Makeup Bag?
I tried dieting. I'll stop right here and take a moment of silence for anyone who has dieted at any point in their life. I'm sorry. Dieting stinks. All of my life I have been thin. I mean, to the point where I had people pull Brian aside and express their concern for my health.… Continue reading Extreme Dieting | Does It Work?
Ok, next week I might be sitting on a beach somewhere in the Caribbean, but when I get back home to beautiful Canada, I will absolutely be diving right into my fall wardrobe. This year, I'm kind of excited about it. Unlike 12 years ago, when I had just had a baby and my fall… Continue reading Fall Fashion | 2018
Thanksgiving is right around the corner for us Canadians and although I'll be in the Caribbean, I'm dreaming about all the fixings. I love everything about fall. Cool weather. Sweaters. Cute boots. Windows open. Fresh air. Thanksgiving. When I was young, my mom always hosted family holiday dinners at our house for any family that… Continue reading How To Host A Holiday Dinner
It's been exactly 15 hours since I booked our latest vacation. I am almost fully packed and ready - at least mentally and on paper (well, actually, Trello). We leave in exactly 11 days, 22 hours and 15 minutes from the time I'm writing this. For me, this may almost be considered a planned-ahead vacation.… Continue reading Secrets for Last Minute Vacations
I am in Kitchener this weekend...or Waterloo. Well, maybe Bloomingdale. I'm not quite sure. It took us longer than I'd like, but we're here. Brian literally dropped me off at the hotel and rushed off to a men's conference. I'm tagging along because, why not. I love travelling. I love getting away. I love taking… Continue reading How To Ensure A Bug-Free Hotel Room
I failed at today already. It's 8:11 in the morning. I slept through 3 alarms and only crawled out of bed moments before Brian's alarm went off. I double booked my morning. I didn't write a blog post. I ran out of milk. I yelled at the kids. Anxiety is a killer today. So, here… Continue reading 5 Minute Makeup
Ok, I know, I'm behind on my blog. Hopefully this video makes up for it. People always talk about how you’re either a morning person or a night owl. I used to be a morning person, but up until recently I haven’t been a morning person or a night owl - I like to go… Continue reading How To Become A Morning Person
When I was a teenager and into my early twenties, before kids, I would change my nail polish to match my outfit pretty well every single day. I'm not just talking a coat of polish, I'm talking all out designs - fingers and toes! I'm sure if you have kids, you can deduct that that kind… Continue reading Are Gel Nails Really Better Than Acrylics?
