Feeling the love! Not just on Valentines Day but everyday! LOVE makes the world go round, makes people happy and we need more love. Hugs, cuddles and kisses. Positive and beautiful words of kindness. Sweets, lights and happy desserts. Flowers and things that are PINK and RED. Share love with friends and family. L O V E is beautiful thing that radiates and brings joy and positive energy.
Valentines Day is everyday for me. I love that we have that one specific day to share how we truly feel about loved ones which include family and friends. Can’t forget your pets as well. If you have a pet, show them extra love! I would! Hugs, kisses, cuddles and kindness. Love and positivity. I love anything romantic. Romance and love is so healthy for us. Why deny it? Allowing the flow of energy from your heart to radiate is the most beautiful thing!
Here are some beautiful gift giving ideas:
As you know by now my favourite fragrances are by CHANEL. You can find the following CHANEL Products starting February 2nd on http://www.Chanel.ca or at CHANEL Beauty Counters. I adore CHANCE CHANEL EAU TENDRE Touch-up. It is a super cute compact with a soft rubber pad that you dab fragrance on your body. EAU TENDRE IS MY FAVE! I adore this because if you are at a party or public place with a lot of people you don’t have to spray fragrance everywhere. This is such a clever idea. You can dab it in the areas you want and it also has a mirror. It’s pink and adorable. I love it!
CHANCE EAU TENDRE Touche de Douceur Perfume/Delicate Fragrance Touch UP
* Limited Edition $86.00
CHANEL CHANCE EAU Huile pour Le Corps/Body Oil and CHANEL Eau ViVe Huile pour Le Corps/body oil are so beautiful! After taking a shower I love applying this luxurious dry body oil. They are both so beautiful on the skin and leave the skin feeling so silky, smooth and soft. I absolutely adore the body oil sprays. I find the scent is long lasting the formula not greasy. Absorbs beautifully and smells so fresh!

Winter can bring on melancholic feelings and I’m here to give you a few tips to help you get through the rut! The sun is not out as long. Sunshine is lacking. Pick up some vitamin D! There are a few things that I like to do in the winter to stay cozy and positive. First thing is have a CUPPA! I prefer coffee in the morning, noon or anytime really. A MUST! Get cozy with a CUPPA! You can spike it if that’s what makes you cozy. Not I though. I don’t like alcohol. But I do love chocolate and marshmallows. *Mug in this photo from Avon.ca
Get Creative!!! I love to write, paint and cook.
Do something that helps you express your self.
You can draw, doodle, write a letter or paint!
Pick a recipe and cook!
I’ve been enjoying making yummy delicious food with HELLO FRESH CANADA. This is not sponsored or an AD. Don’t worry, even if I was working with them I’m here to tell you they ROCK. Love everything about them. Anyhow, I’ve gotten off topic. NOT a surprise at all. lol I’ll go into detail aboutHello Fresh Canadain my next post. I’m not finished preparing all the content yet…oh wait yup here’s a photo of my lunch. Documentation is a must! Chicken Sliders with slaw. Healthy fast and easy. I have a code if you like 40% off your first meal.
Taking hot baths in the winter really feels relaxing and rejuvenating. I love LUSH and you all probably know that already. My husband bought me a Christmas Lush Box. I didn’t want to write “What I got For Christmas” post… I really didn’t… but I want to share this one with you because LUSH is fun and colourful and everything I need in the winter. My girls love it too. But of course I share my bath bombs…Only if my girls are well behaved. Reminds me of goldmember “Oh Behave!”…off topic again. I’ve been feeling cray cray lately. Okay so here is the box that I received from my sweet husband.
CHRISTMAS BATH TIME FAVOURITES
Golden Wonder Bath Bomb, Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb, Butter bear Bath Bomb, Shoot for the stars Bath Bomb, Never Mind the Ballistics Bath Bomb, Christmas Sweater Bath Bomb, Sherbert Dip Bath Bomb, Star Light Star Bright Bath Melt, Thundersnow Bath Bomb, Lord of Misrule Bath Bomb, Snow Angel Luxury Bath Melt.
Very fun and relaxing. A must in my life to relax in a hot bath with LUSH Bath Bombs. I highly recommend you try them out. Winter Blues go away oh LUSH! you made my day!
Once I’m out of my lovely bath I like to spritz and spray and smell fresh all day!
YUP I just rhymed!
omg I love how fresh *Mark REBEL + ICE Smells! Very invigorating and refreshing! How about the beautiful scarf? I love getting cozy after the bath and one thing I love is to cover my neck. I find my neck needs to be kept warm. mark Rebel and Ice limited edition bath and body collection is an icy mix featuring notes of cool mountain air, winter iris and white birch woods. Body Wash is refreshing and moisturizing. The body Mist is refreshing and lightly scented with a beautiful hydrating mist and the Body lotion locks in moisture leaving the skin feeling soft and silky.

*Body Mist $14.00
*Body Lotion $10.00

A must in the winter is to snack on healthy food and I kindly received Sabra Hummus to review which I said YES to because I love delicious food. Snacking and drinking water really helps in the winter. Important to keep our energy up. These three are my favourite. The Olive Hummus, the Spicy Hummus and the roasted red pepper! So delicious! Delicious and healthy!
I also enjoy reading a lot during the winter months. I just finished the Novel “The Break” written by Katherena Vermette. It’s an incredible novel and also Canadian.
I hope this blog post inspires you to do more things that make you happy.
What are some things you like to do in the winter? I would love to know!
Don’t forget to buy your self something sweet and lovely just like this.

Happy 2018! I wish you all the best this year and I’m very excited and look forward to many wonderful, positive and happy experiences. Life is a gift and I’m grateful for everything. I feel happy and excited about learning, loving and living. I would like to make 2018 the very best that it can be.
December was a hard and challenging month. The loss of my brother-in-law was difficult and emotional for the entire family and of course his friends as well. The entire experience taught me never hold on to grudges, to let go of the past and focus on the people that surround me.
In December I did a lot of reflecting and spending time with my husband and children. I thought a lot about what my purpose is as a creator and I’ve made huge plans! I’ve made a bucket list for this year. I hope I can accomplish a lot on the list. I don’t know if you remember my last year’s video about my goals for 2017? I think I did about 2 things from that list. One was to get my nose pierced, second one was to be in an article and I was so honoured to be a part of the BUZZ MAGAZINE #BodyPositive Movement with other beautiful and inspirational people. Read more about the feature HERE.
I hope in 2018 I can cross off more things on my bucket list. Would you like to hear more about my bucket list? How about your bucket list? Did you do something that you’ve always wanted to do? Do you make a bucket lists or goals for the year? Would love to know.
During the cold December I baked delicious chocolate chip cookies from the book * “Brad Long On Butter”. A really fabulous cook book. Brad Long’s passion for cooking comes through each page in this great Canadian Cookbook. If you love butter as much as I do you will love this book. The writing is humorous and very fun. The recipes are delicious and I can’t wait to try more recipes from this cook book.
The weather hasn’t allowed us to get out doors as much as we would like because it was too darn cold. I’m okay with -10 but it got down to -21 or more. I also hate when it is too windy. Cold Wind drives me crazy. I would LOVE to do outdoor things like skate, ski, snowshoeing, building a fire and all that lovely hugge living. The Danish know how to make things cozy! So I lit a lot of candles, played games with the family and also read the book “THE BREAK” written by Katherena Vermette. She is a Canadian Author and the novel is Fiction. I’ve given this book a 5/5 on goodreads. It’s a really amazing and heart wrenching novel. It’s sad, emotional and yet the women in this book are strong and stick together. The story overall is very emotional. The characters are very well developed and very believable. This novel is about identity, gangs, rape and healing. A very moving novel and a must read in Canadian Literature.
Random thought…I would like to travel to Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland this year. It’s a dream to check these countries out. When I was younger my mother would come home with photos, postcards and clippings from various countries. I loved collecting them and I would look at them everyday and envision my self traveling. The pictures that I remember most were from Switzerland. As I got older I had the opportunity to visit Zurich and I fell in love. It’s a beautiful most magical place. The food and people are amazing and the city is so clean. The architecture so beautiful. This year I’m going to cut out clippings and images and do some serious visualizing!
In December I was Vlogging a little and If you would like to watch Vlogmas 2017 you can check it out HERE.
Here is my most recent Vlog. I would love your support. Please Subscribe to my channel. I truly appreciate it. It is really important to me to develop my Vlog channel this year. I love my vlog channel a lot because it shows who I am and my lifestyle. It is more rough cut editing and I my self watch more vlogs then other videos do you? I enjoy sharing parts of my life with you and I hope you feel the same way too.
I also made a Beauty Video for my Beauty Youtube Channel. If you like have a look at my most Recent Video. CHANEL NEAPOLIS
I haven’t blogged for a long time because I had the children home for two weeks and they kept me so busy. I was in the kitchen almost all day. Cooking breakfast, cleaning up, prep for lunch, cleaning up and prep for dinner. It’s a lot of time in the kitchen but I really love it. I enjoy cooking so much! It makes me truly happy to cook and feed my family. There is nothing like a home cooked meal!
A few PR samples came in the mail over the holidays and I wanted to share them with you. I’m always grateful for PR and in 2018 I’m incorporating the PR in my blog posts. I really love and enjoy mixing it up. My lifestyle and everything in my life is free flowing and I enjoy it that way. I hope you enjoy my posts better this way.
I received some lovely delicious dips for December. The family really enjoyed them. Sabra Hummus! Very yummy and thank you so much for the PR samples! How perfect are these for snacks and a party! Festive and fun!
For Christmas my husband and I bought a Nesspresso maker and we love it! The machine makes so many different coffees and also steams up the milk. It’s fabulous and we’ve been enjoying our coffee a lot. He got some stencils for coffee and sprinkled cinnamon on my coffee. How sweet is this right? He is a huge romantic! I love him more and more each day. Love makes the world go round and so does coffee.
I was kindly sent two pairs of socks and I took a photo of one pair before my phone broke down and died and I lost all my photos. Make sure you back up your phone and save your photos. On that note make sure you download your blog as well and save your blog posts, photos and info. Did you know you can do that? Thank goodness for apple care because I got a new phone. I use my phone a lot so i’m so GRATEFUL for that.
The socks that I kindly received are from * DEAD SOXY. My daughter took them from me right away and says that they are her favourite socks because they are soft, comfortable and they don’t fall down like her other socks. As you can see in the photo she loves them.
I kindly received * Neal’s Yard Remedies Essential Oils and a beautiful Book that talks about each oil and what the uses are. It explains everything and I absolutely love the oils. They are my favourite Essential oils for December. They really help relax and soothe. So good for my family’s health and wellness. I add them in the bath and in the diffuser but I also add the lavender topically on the family before bed to relax and help them sleep. We have all grown to really appreciate and love Neal’s Yard Remedies oils. My favourite one has to be the lavender and bergamot. Thank you so much to Neal’s Yard Remedies for the organic and natural oils. They are absolutely amazing and if you are thinking of buying oils I highly recommend Neal’s Yard Remedies. They are fantastic!
