Happy Friday everyone! I can’t believe that Mother’s Day is only a week away! Before I had kids, I used to be super prepared for these types of holidays. I would have gifts picked out months in advance, and well now that has completely changed. I have become the last minute shopper, it is what it is. Anyway, I’m super excited to share this Mother’s Day Gift Guide with all of you.
Hey loves! I hope everyone had an amazing weekend. Last week was such a whirlwind for us as Brielle came down with a horrible cold and I had a crazy busy work week, so we were all excited to unwind and relax this weekend. I’ll admit, I have a difficult time doing nothing. I get antsy if I sit around too long, and I find I like to keep busy on the weekends with fun family outings, dinner parties or errand running.
As I sit here writing this blog post, I’m giddy with excitement! I love sharing brands with my audience that I love, and what makes me even happier is that all of the brands I’m sharing today are Canadian! There’s something incredibly important and special about supporting our local stores. And the thing is, there are so many amazing ones!
My first born daughter, Mila is now three and a half years old. She’s starting preschool next week, and this milestone has me pretty emotional. For me, it’s a symbol that she’s becoming more independent, and therefore she will become just a little bit more aware of the world (and the good – and not so good things about it). I know, I know. For God’s sake Alex – it’s not like she’s starting college! Trust me…I realize that I’m probably more emotional than I need to be.
For the past few months my skin has been giving me a little bit of a hard time. It’s been so much more oily than usual (thank you breastfeeding hormones). I wanted to pick up a really good mask to even out my complexion and help with the access oil…this mask had me sold after the first use! This mask is meant to detoxify the skin and pull out all of the dirt, impurities, and toxins.
