Hello 2018.

Where has this past year gone? 

IMG_7761PS.jpg

I took a little break from blogging and keeping up with my social media and I can honestly say I really missed it. 

In the past year things have been pretty busy; I got married, moved out of my apartment and I am in the process of getting my USA Visa. 

But alas I am back! 
I am so happy to be back sharing the things I love on my blog and Instagram.  

What do you want to see more posts about?! I am ready to get back into the swing of things and get more posts out to the world!

March Break Goals

March Break is the time if the year where I get a nice week to relax with no work and all the time to myself to recharge and stay motivated to move forward with all of my goals. I am very envious of everyone who is going away on an exotic trip for the week (who wouldn't love to be in a warmer climate?).

Even though I am not going anywhere exotic and warm I am going on a little trip for a few days with my boyfriend and a few friends (be ready for a vacation post). No matter how the weather ends up being for those days we have planned to go on a hike and spend our time outdoors. Which to be honest, I am so ready to disconnect myself from the online world for a day and spend my time with amazing people having amazing experiences. 

My goals for this break are pretty simple;

  • I would like to stay with doing my #30DayPilatesBody March Challenge (I feel that I may lose a day here or there but I want to focus on attempting to do all of the days during my break!) I have yet to miss a challenge day! Its not to late to start if you want to join in on the challenge! 
  • I would like to work on some DIY and pinterest hacks! I want to start my nightstand DIY as well as make another pinterest meal! 
  • Since I will not be doing anything for work I want to stock my blog up with some new posts as well as give it some TLC. There are some things I have been meaning to fix or update and this would be the perfect time to do so!
  • Other than create great memories with friends and loved ones I want to try and capture them.. I was thinking about possibly not only taking photos of my experiences during the break but as well as a few videos. I would love to get my feet wet and jump into making some videos to post here on my blog!

I know these goals are pretty simple and easy to accomplish but we all know that when we get into relaxation mode even the easiest of tasks seems like pulling teeth! 

If you have March Break next week I hope you have an amazing time doing things you love and creating memories with those you love!

February Favourites

Although February is the shortest month of the year (even with Leap Day) it still felt like a pretty solid month filled with a lot of memories and events. During February I found that I was more in love with aesthetically pleasing things than make up or skincare (even though there is a skincare favourite...of course!). I fell more in love with my blog, went out and did things that are new to me as well as realized how cherished my relationships are. Here are my favourites for the month; 

Fresh Cut Flowers 

I know Valentines day probably sparked this interest but I have always loved having fresh flowers (sometimes even fake flowers) around the house. My Tumblr feed has been filling up with fresh spring flowers and I could not be more obsessed! 

A Rosie Bath  

keeping with the theme I am totally loving the Lush bath items that are rose scented. I want to love the body conditioner more but I feel that the Rose Jam has it beat. The smell and lasting power of the body wash is amazing! I need more in my life!

Holy Grail Face Mask 

Now if you read my recent post; CLICK HERE!  but I have fallen in love with the First Aid Beauty Overnight Mask  . I highly recommend it if you have dry patches and stubborn spots you want to get rid of. Every morning it looks like my face just drank a big gulp of water. I am addicted for sure! 

My Daily Routine

I have been sticking to a pretty solid morning routine lately. I know it sounds silly to plan out my day but I find that I am more productive when I stick to my plan (plus I feel accomplished when I get a lot done). My morning routine always starts with making my bed and then having breakfast. After that it varies with what I have planned that day or need completed but I always have a large mug of coffee/tea by my side and a great podcast or youtube video to catch up on! 

Blog Organization

As most bloggers I love to be organized with my thoughts and upcoming post ideas. Lately I have been using the template I created to keep myself organized from week to week and it is helping keeping everything in one place. Before using this system I would have a ton of sticky notes and loose papers everywhere that made it more complicated. I can now write all my ideas and things to do on one page and keep it organized. 

I would love to hear what you have been loving this past month! Leave a comment down below!!

Lace It Up - Forever21 Haul

I recently did a quick Forever21  shop online looking for something to add some spring life to my closet. 

Back in October I cleaned out my closet in hopes of having less clutter and more items I actually love. With that being said, I did get rid of a bunch of spring/summer clothing that have not been touch for over a year. I thought this would be a perfect time to add a few new items in my wardrobe that I will love. 

Before opening the package I told myself that if I did not 100% love the items on me then I would not keep it and therefore return the clothing. 

Here is a look at what I got;

 

Lace-Up Romper - Dusty Pink ($29.90) 

This romper is beautiful, I love the colour of it and how the sleeves have some lace on them. I do not like how tight the bottoms are.  when I am just standing or walking they fit fine but they feel a little bit too snug compared to how I like my rompers fitting. I like how it looks but not how it feels... you feel me? 

Lace-Up Fit & Flare Dress - Blush  ($37.90)

As you can tell this dress is very similar to the romper. I decided to get both items in hopes that I would fall in love with one more than the other and return the other one. 

I do love the sleeves on the romper more but I think this dress is easier to wear. I like the fit of the top better on the dress than the romper. 

 

Mesh-Paneled Bikini - White ($22.90 per piece)

 

I am obviously not going to try this on for the blog but I thought that a picture of it will be good enough. This white bikini is a perfect addition to my bikini collection. I did get rid of a few bikinis from last year and needs some new staple pieces that I would wear religiously. 

The only issue I have with this item is how high cut the bottoms are. If you look at the photo you can tell the back isn't much bigger than the front. I do love this bikini but I am still on the fence if I would like to keep it or return it. 

 

 

Sadly I am going to return the romper and possibly return the bathing suit as I am still on the fence about it. What do you think about these pieces? Do you love the lace-up and/or blush toned trends?
