30 Days Of Yoga Challenge At Home

Hello my lovely readers! I’ve decided to journey into a second round of yoga. It’s amazing to read my first challenge and see how far I’ve come. I’ve noticed a lot of changes from the first 30 day challenge to the second challenge. I skipped less days and I was actually looking forward to doing the classes. This second challenged was more of quieting the mind and extending the stretches. Breathing with the movements and working with the mental challenges. Overall I’m so proud and happy with my self. As I’m writing this I’m on my third challenge and moving onward with my journey. I’m happy, confident and feeling amazing. I hope you enjoy reading my yoga journey.

Thank you so much. 🙏 Namaste.

I was stiff in the beginning. My wrists hurt a bit. The sitting cross leg position still a challenge for me but I’m better than before. Hips and lower back have some issues. What I enjoyed with this class is to check in with your body and feel where issues are evident. These are the areas I would like to works on: Lower back and my core. Overall I’m feeling good and positive. My prior 30 day challenge has changed my mindset. If you check out the previous challenge I was struggling with making my self do the class. I forced my self to do it. This time around I actually look forward to doing the class. With this challenge I would like physical and mental strength. I would like my breath and energy to flow with my body and breath. Strengthen, lengthen and extend stretches. I would also like to let go of stress and embrace my self and my body.

Self love and confidence

Strength and courage 

Letting go of stress


Friday June 12, 2020

Is it normal to cry during yoga? Connected to my breathing and movement today. Strengthening core and focusing on intentions. Focusing on how I feel. Cried during deep breathing. I feel so good. I look forward to each day of yoga class. Great stretches and lengthening. Strengthening and focus. My mind drifted about 3 times but I refocused. The class helped me so much today.
Thank you. 🙏


Day 3

Saturday June 13, 2020

I was tired today because I did some yard work but I’m so happy I did day 3 of yoga class. Feeling really good and strong. I’m not in pain. I feel great in poses and extending my stretches. I’m holding on to positions longer without toppling over. I’m going with the flow of movement and breath. Really happy. I feel so full of energy and happiness when I’m doing yoga. Strong. I would like to work on my mind set more. And my concentration is much better. My mind drifted two times only. 

(Skipped Sunday)

Day 4

Monday June 15, 2020


Today’s yoga class felt fast for some reason. Awakened parts of the body that need attention. I cried at the beginning. As I can see my deep breathing is connected to my emotions and my core. I definitely have been stressed by the changes in our world. Covid  has stressed me out. Also doing school work with my girls can be overwhelming. I’m tired as well and I’m cooking, cleaning and homework with the girls. #Momlife is real and hard. After all this is over I need a vacation. Today’s yoga class was releasing a lot of my stress. It was really great. 

Day 5

Tuesday June 16, 2020

Today I felt like I ran for 30 min! A great class! Breathing, strengthening and connection to movement and breath. My wrists hurt a little, my knee is doing a little better. I overworked it a bit. Overall I’m feeling great and I was looking forward to the class today. I thoroughly enjoyed the class. 

Day 6

Wednesday June 17, 2020

WOWZA working the core. Abs! Soooo good. Hard work but so good. 

Day 7

Thursday June 18, 2020 

My Abs still hurt from yesterday. Today’s class had great stretches. I enjoyed it. I’m glad It was a stretching class because my wrists needed a break. Fantastic and now I’m going for a walk! Feeling great!

Day 8

Friday June 19, 2020


Breathe in Love and breathe out ❤️ love.

At first this was hard as I thought about negative people. I stretched my mind and my focus. I focused on my love for my husband and girls. This class was very soothing and relaxing. Breathing & gentle stretching really calming class. I enjoyed every minute. 

Day 9

Saturday June 20, 2020

Worked up a sweat and felt my heart rate go up. It was challenging, I felt areas that are weak and that I would like to strengthen. I had mind chatter and moved location for my yoga class today. I was looking around thinking too many things. It’s okay though. I continued and tried to focus on the breath. I noticed  when things get difficult I want to back away or stop. I didn’t though. I finished the class.

Day 10

Sunday June 21, 2020

I am happy I did the class! “The mat is your mirror” The instructor shared this message and it made so much sense to me. So powerful. I didn’t want to do today’s class to be honest. Feeling down and stuck. Thinking too much about COVID and all the things that are happening around the world. Thinking about what will I do all summer with my girls. I’m always stressing and worried. After Yoga I feel so happy & well. After yoga all my problems are no longer there. Today’s class was a standing up class. Finding strength between the feet and connection to the ground and earth. I enjoyed it so much. 

Namaste & Thank you

Day 11

Monday June 22, 2020

Oh today’s class was amazing! Sweat! Sweat! Strength! Really feel stronger. I can’t believe that yoga can make you sweat a lot. So good and I’m feeling strong. I always look forward to doing my yoga. 

Day 12

Tuesday June 23, 2020

Stretches in today’s class were fantastic. Great cleaning of the mind as well. The chatter in my head was not as strong today. I did cry. I’m also trying to find my authentic self. Material things are not as important and should not consume my life. I’m also a bit confused and I don’t want to live in Toronto anymore. Nature calls me. 

Day 13

Wednesday June 24, 2020

Feeling so Good!

Extending stretches and strengthening. My wrist hurt a bit. Struggling a little bit mentally and emotionally but yoga helped me so much today. Feeling stronger and breathing deep.

Flowing Energy like the ocean through me.

Day 14

Thursday June 25, 2020

Great Stretches for the hips today and again got emotional. All is good. Everything feels great. I look forward to doing more yoga. I can stretch in ways that I wasn’t able before. I also feel stronger. I would like to help my mental state be stronger and better. Toxic out & Let love in. 

Thank you!

Day 15

Friday June 26, 2020

Today was a much needed yoga class. I wasn’t going to do today’s class but I am so grateful that I did it. I’m becoming more flexible and strong. Some chatter is still happening in my head but I try really hard to focus on my breathing and that brings me back to my core and the focus shifts back to my body. Feeling great overall. I really need to start meditation though. Life’s stresses and frustrations are getting to my mind. 

Day 16

Saturday June 27, 2020

Stretching the body feels so amazing!!!

Sunday Off

Day 17

Monday June 29, 2020

I did my yoga and worked on breathing. I also never knew how it can hurt sitting in a cross leg position for a long time. My lower back hurt. I’ve always had a weak lower back. Yesterday I did some gardening and my arms hurt so much. Day 17 was really great and I enjoyed it. 

Day 18

Tuesday June 30, 2020


I didn’t feel like doing yoga but I’m happy I did it. I’m struggling emotionally. I don’t feel I’m the best I can be. I don’t feel fully complete in a way. I need quiet and nature and ocean. I’m emotional because of hormones but I am also not enjoying living in the city. Too much noise, cars and pollution. I want to be the best of me that I can be. I want the best for my family. The only way I can do this is with connection to a more natural calm way of living. City living is not for me. I am grateful for yoga because it is helping me figure things out inside of me. This is what is going on in my head. Yoga was very challenging today. I would like to do today’s yoga class again because it was such a great challenge. 

Day 19

Wednesday July 1, 2020

A very challenging class today. My heart rate was up and great balancing. Sweating nicely. I really enjoyed it. It really helped my mental state. I would like to dive into more yoga. I’m loving the change in the body and mind. 

Day 20

Thursday July 2, 2020

Yoga was great. Working on stillness today. Felt really great! I feel like I should do more but today’s class I learned to be still with what I have. It doesn’t have to be strenuous and a lot. 

Skipped July 3, 2020

Day 21

Saturday July 4, 2020

Great breathing and stretching. Great release of stress and anxiety. Really lovely class. I really enjoyed it. My neck and shoulders were a bit stiff. After the class all that tightness has gone and I’m more relaxed and pain free. 

Day 22

Sunday July 5, 2020

I was an emotional wreck today. Very low and down. I felt so sad. I don’t know why. I left yoga class to the end of the day. It was great as usual. I always enjoy the class. I would like to do 2 classes a day. One in the morning and the other in the afternoon. My mental state is not so well. I feel happy one minute and sad the next. I hate COVID. It has caused to much damage to the body mind and soul of the world. 🌎

Wednesday July 15, 2020

A very long class that made me sweat and tested my endurance and strength. I was pleasantly surprised that my strength is great and my endurance was tested. I stopped a couple of times to breathe a bit. I can’t believe I‘ve complete a second round of 30 days of yoga!! WOO HOO!

YAY! I’m soooo proud of my self! I feel happy and stronger than before. I’m more flexible and my mind chatter is almost gone whilst doing yoga. I feel really great and healthier.

Pixibeauty Face Masks For Every Need #Skintreats

Pixibeauty has such lovely PR packaging. Very beautiful and displayed so nicely. I received a lot of face mask formulas for various skin needs. I think this is amazing because we all have different areas that need attention. Be prepared because there is something for everyone in this blog post. Let me share the goodies with you.

Peel & Polish

This formula is gritty and deep cleans. I apply a thin layer. I leave it on for two minutes and when its time to wash it off I work it in circles on the skin to exfoliate. This cleans the skin so beautifully. Peel and Polish can be used 2-3 times a week. This product really gives me smoother and softer skin. It gives my skin a healthy glow and its made with natural fruit enzyme to loosen dead skin cells. It has lactic acid and gently exfoliates, it has cellulose peels and sugar extracts which polishes and lifts away dullness revealing a brighter skin. It is suitable for all skin types, not tested on animals and is paraben free. This can also be applied on face and neck.


Smells so wonderful! This mask really cleans pores and helps give the skin a beautiful glow. It is made with aloe vera and ginseng.

A purifying, glow-revealing clay mask to purify & balance skin – it’s our signature 15-minute facial!

Pixi Beauty

This mineral rich treatment absorbs oil, draws out impurities and fights breakouts while giving an energizing boost to the complexion. The formula has kaolin and sea salt to purify and ginseng and aloe vera to balance.


These lovely eye patches have such lovely texture. They are so soothing and silky/slimy. They are slippery little ones. I adore them so much though. They really soothe and hydrate under the eye area. I love how relaxing and cooling these are. They really help depuff under the eyes. I use the spatula to lift and separate the eye patches. I apply the thickest part of the eye patch in the outer corner. I leave it on for ten minutes and then toss them out. You can actually chill these to really help soothe and depuff eyes. The detoxifeye patches contain hyaluronic acid and caffeine which helps depuff and helps with dark circles. Hydrogel patches infuse the delicate eye area with hydration. The jar contains 30 pairs. 

T-Zone Peel-off Mask smells so fresh and is a pearly green colour. It goes on smoothly and feels really lovely on the skin. I really love this peel of mask. It has green tea, seaweed, avocado cucumber, aloe and bamboo extract to help firm and refine. This is great for when my skin feels congested, dull and tired. I apply it only on the T-Zone area. I let it dry completely before peeling it off. I also avoid the areas around the lips, eyes and hairline.

Pixi Glow Glycolic Boost Brightening Infusion Sheet Mask

This is a really lovely Sheet mask. It is gentle and cooling. Soothing and instantly brightens and hydrates the skin. It contains glycolic acid, ginseng and witch hazel. I love a good sheet mask that fits properly on the face and this definitely is one of my favourites.

Thank you so much to Pixi Beauty for the amazing #SKINTREATS. I adore all the face masks and highly recommend them. Thank you!


How Does Breast Augmentation Fit Into a Mom’s Life?

*Guest Post

How Does Breast Augmentation Fit Into a Mom’s Life?

Motherhood is a beautiful thing. I’m so grateful to be living the mommy life. But while the process of becoming a mom made a huge positive impact on me as a whole, it definitely changed my body in ways that I hadn’t expected.

I loved my body before I had a baby and I love my body now, but I do miss some of the youthfulness and confidence I felt pre-pregnancy. 

Many moms consider breast augmentation to help get back to their pre-baby body and reignite their confidence. Undergoing a procedure is a big decision, though, and you may not be sure if the process will realistically fit into your life and all your body’s day to day mom duties.

I’ve heard some of my fellow moms mention the same concerns: How long would they be out of commission? What results would they get? How would life be different after?

I did some digging of my own, and here’s what I learned. 

What are the options?

Some of the most popular types of augmentation are silicone implants, saline implants and fat grafting. Silicone implants come in a teardrop (anatomical) or round shape; saline implants are silicone shells that are filled with saltwater; and fat grafting is a subtler option that uses fat taken from another part of your body. The option you choose depends on your personal preference, body type, and the look you’re going for, and you can even mix and customize procedures to create your own unique size and shape.

How long does recovery take?

Recovery is a step-by-step process. According to Dr. Derek Ford, who specializes in plastic surgery and breast augmentation in Toronto, you can be back on your feet and moving around the same day and back to most types of work in about a week. You’ll need to stay away from heavy lifting for a few more weeks. Your surgeon will clear you for more activities at your follow-up appointments and will give you specific instructions to follow so you can be totally back to normal ASAP.

What will the results be after?

Practices like Dr. Ford’s now offer 3D previews that can show you an in-depth look at what your results may be so you can get a feel for your new look before you commit. It takes some of the guesswork out of your decision and will give you a glimpse into what your post-surgery body will be.

What is life after surgery like?

Once you’re recuperated, you get to go forward with a new bod and new and improved sense of confidence. A study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons showed a “very large” improvement of quality of life after breast augmentation. No regrets there.

If you’re one of many moms out there wondering if a breast augmentation makes sense in your life, know you’re not alone. With so many options and new ways to get back on your feet more quickly than ever, it’s definitely possible to fit into your busy mommy life. 

We all deserve to love the bodies we’re in. If plastic surgery can help you reach your body confidence goals, it’s a beautiful thing.

Cold Got You Down? Try this Thursday Pick-Me-Up!

On Monday my daughter felt sick and had a sore throat and stuffy nose. I gave her a vitamin C tablet right away and set up essential oils for her. I love using the Thursday Plantation Oils. They truly help. I also use these topically. I added a drop of eucalyptus behind her ear lobes and chest.


I then had her use my trusted throat spray BeeKeeper’s Throat Relief. This spray helps so much. Every time my throat feels like a cat has scratched it I use this. My daughter likes this too. I kindly received this via Little Life Box. It has helped so much so thank you Little Life Box!


I came up with a vitamin infused booster drink.  I wanted my daughter  to stay hydrated and receive her vitamins and veggies to help her system. I came up with the following recipe and she loved it!


400ml Apple Juice

1 Cup Frozen Blackberries

2 Frozen Bananas (They don’t have to be frozen.)

1 Scoop of Vegan Greens + O



Packed with vitamin C. Just 1 Cup is a full dose for the day!

High in fiber and great source of vitamin K.

Also I love using vegan greens + O by Genuine Health.

By the end of the day she was feeling much better. What are your favourite cold remedies? I also love fresh ginger & lemon tea.

How about you?

thank you apple blog
