First Christmas In Our New Home!

#VLOGMAS is Here! Enjoy and subscribe!

Dear January…

I poured a lot of creativity into the pages of my sketchbooks and notebooks. I avoided any physical exercise. I know I said I would do yoga but I’m not into it. Just not feeling motivated. As we move into February the sun helps brighten my spirit.

I’ve been writing poetry. I’ve been sharing my poems on IG. @bestdayblogger because I don’t have my computer to upload and edit my vlogs as much I’m spending time on Instagram Reels and IGTV. This year is my first time using those features. It’s fun.

I created a video for my Art Book Flip Trough.

I created a video of my tea collection. I’ve been into a lot of tea drinking lately.

Reading art and writing is how I’ve been spending my creative time. The rest of the time I’m doing laundry, washing dishes and cooking. It gets dark at 5:30 and I hate it. I feel tired and want to sleep a lot but can’t.

Currently reading Alice Hoffman’s Magic Lessons.

I am really enjoying this book.

I completed A Poem For Every Winter Day. A very lovely collection of poetry.

Art in my Moleskine Artbook. I completed my first book. I didn’t use both sides of the pages.

The moon was so beautiful in January.

As for beauty I haven’t put any makeup on. I only use skincare products. Clarins, Pixi Beauty Skincare and Avon Skincare. I will be doing a full skincare winter routine post soon.

That is all for this month. Art, writing, tea drinking and reading. Taking care of the house chores and cooking. Feeding, bathing and taking care of my girls. Taking care of my self also.

I watched a Netflix movie in January. I LOVED IT. It is called Penguin Bloom with Naomi Watts. Based on a true story. It was amazing! You must watch it.

This month’s favourite snacks are chocolate and popcorn. ūüćŅ

I’m also loving my new fountain pen. It’s really beautiful. I received this as a Christmas gift from my wonderful husband. I also completed my Tea Pigs advent calendar and loved opening a tea everyday. It was amazing trying different flavours of teas. Tea Pigs is great!

So goodbye January 2021! I enjoyed each moment and cried many nights missing my father and thinking about him. I had a few sleepless nights. Puffy eyes and bags under my eyes. It is hard. Flashbacks from the final hours with my father come to me all the time and I just start crying. I know the good memories will float above the sad ones one day. Until then I light my candle everyday and pray.

I hope you are all well my friends. Take good care of your selves and your family during these hard times. Spend your time doing things you love and things that bring you joy.

Thank you all and have a beautiful weekend.

Much love and positivity.

A Week of Makeup Looks & Recent Favourites! BESTDAYBLOGGER

Last week I started the week off with polls on Twitter and asked you what makeup looks you would like to see. You voted on Monday for AVON, Tuesday for DIOR and Wednesday for CHANEL. I love all the looks and I would like to say thank you for all the comments and feedback on my videos. I have no idea where I got my energy last week. It was fab! I made a video each day and then edited it and uploaded on the same day to my YOUTUBE channel. Have a closer look at the Dior video. It will give you a look at the Beauty Event that I went to. Did you read the article? DIOR BEAUTY EVENT TORONTO #DIORBEAUTY

Here are the makeup looks and the videos.

I also created an eye look with Make Up For Ever New Artist Color Eye Shadows!

These shadows are really beautiful. They don’t fall apart on you and the formula is soft and blends nicely and evenly. They are very pigmented. Truly beautiful. Make Up For Ever has 121 Highly pigmented shades, 5 blendable finishes and they have a 12 hour wear. I received the single eyeshadow which is $24.00 and price includes 1 refill & 1 Palette. The two colours I chose are Strawberry 1746¬† and fig D826.¬†They also have Duo, Trio, Quad and Six. They are available online and in stores at SEPHORA. *PR SAMPLES

Adventure, Art and Paint Party Friday! 

Fun Things to do With your Kids in the Summer! TORONTO

We had so much fun at the AGO and ROM. Totally fun!

This month I plan to go a few more places before school starts. It’s a lot of work to take the girls on day trips but totally exciting and so worth it. Last week I took them to the Toronto Public Library and made Library cards for them. They loved it there! They looked around played with hands on activities and found some fun books. The library is new and beautiful and we really love it. We also took a little walk around Scarborough Civic Centre. It’s really lovely area. We bought some food and drinks at the mall and we sat outside to eat. A beautiful summer day!

It was a wonderful adventure in our own neighbourhood. We really enjoyed our day trip and I look forward to more fun trips this month. I’m hoping to go to the science centre, the aquarium and the CNE. I also would like to go down to the beach and hopefully travel to Niagara on the Lake.

On our trip I carried my LeSportSac Backpack. I won it on IG and I absolutely love it! It’s been amazing to have it around this summer. I love how light the material is and yet so strong. Amazing! It is definitely one of my favourites for July. You can see the bag in my VLOG when we went to the ROM. Have a look if you like. ROM VLOG.

Speaking of July favourites, lets have a look at all my faves for last month. I made a video and look forward to your lovely comments. You are all so wonderful and supportive. I always appreciate everything you write.
