I am a sucker for minimalism. Everything about it makes my heart flutter and I couldn’t have been more excited when i found these gorgeous handmade and minimalist Christmas decorations from Etsy.

I never thought to look for Christmas decor on Etsy but I came across these magical finds and thought I’d share them with you as the holiday decorating season is upon us!

Essential Oil Diffuser Blends for Fall & Winter

Diffusing essential oils might be my love language. There is nothing more satisfying than filling your home up with intoxicating blends while watching a diffuser sprinkle mist into the air. I just really love everything about the entire ritual and blending different oils to set a mood is just one of those things I like to dabble in. Not to mention, Fall is my absolute FAVOURITE season and usually when I bust out the diffuser more often. Something about cozy knit sweaters, warm drinks, and a home that smells divine just scream perfection. I thought I would share some blends I use during the Fall and Winter months and introduce you all to Vitruvi.

THIS ergonomical travel pillow has solved uncomfortable sleep on flights

Sometimes you find the holy grail when it comes to a product and I think I might have stumbled upon one here. It came a little late for my trip to Italy, but let me tell you how badly I could have used this head pillow on the flights back and forth. Instead I was left curling up into a ball against the window of the plane and those dreaded metal arm rests (that never seem to move all the way up so they aren’t sticking into your sides). I for one am all about inventions like this because as a Mother of one who has put myself in a plethora of awkward breastfeeding/sleeping positions, driven long distances at a previous job, and been not so easy on my body in sports, I tend to have a very compromisable neck and back. When travelling, I almost always book the overnight flights so I don’t cut into my sightseeing but I never seem to be able to get the rest I need while on route. The last thing anyone needs is to begin a vacation with a pulled neck or back pain. In steps my new travel friend from MonPere.

Dress up your neutral wardrobe with statement shoes

I have always loved shoes. Since I could remember, I had a large collection of footwear strung around every corner of my house. For the most part, I go for comfortable flats like sneakers, mules, ballet flats, or slip ons. Every once in a while I jazz it up with a fancy pair of heels. Shoes are one of the best places to add flare especially if you’re like me and LOVE to keep your outfits as neutral as possible. Thats not to say I won’t toss on a bright red dress once in a while but if you looked in my closet, its mainly greys, blacks, creams, whites, blush pinks, browns, and taupes. So, when I want to add that pop of colour or extra flare I tend to do so with my footwear.

Cream of Kale, Red Onion & Celery Soup (Vegetarian & Ketogenic Friendly)

When I heard the term “Ketogenic lifestyle”, I was in University completing my degree in Psychology. I learned about this diet as a remedy for many mental health ailments, as well for children who are on the Autism Spectrum. This diet is starting to gain a following in popular culture as some stars like Halle Berry sing its praises for weight loss, anti-aging, and its reversal of many symptoms of diabetes. In many cases, people who wish to lose weight will use this diet as it strictly controls carbohydrate intake and calls for high fat and moderate protein. I am not always one to hop on to extreme ways of eating but it really peaked my interest and what better time to try it than before my wedding day.

Travel Essentials: Top Must-Haves When Travelling

There’s no doubt in my mind, if I had my dream life, I would travel 24/7. The growth I’ve experienced and lessons I’ve learned while travelling to different countries and witnessing different cultures has been monumental. I have every intention of seeing more and more the older I get. So far on my bucket list I’ve got a few places lined up: Peru to see Machu Pichu, Ireland to see the green landscapes and historic stoney walls, Cambodia to see the ancient temples.. I could go on. One thing is for sure, anytime I am travelling to another land I make sure I bring along some key essentials. I decided to write up a list for them here with some of my latest picks (Affiliated).

The Ultimate Vegan Fashion Shopping Guide

With the emergence of more conscious consumers in the world of fashion there has been an increase in interest from fashion designers and companies to gear their lines towards ethical construction of clothing and accessories. Since being a vegetarian for over a decade, I can recognize the impact of making more conscious decisions in my life. When it comes to fashion, designers have started to recognize that many consumers are starting to shop this way and have followed suit with their designs. Many high end fashion designers are ceasing their relationships with the fur, suede and leather industries and are working with synthetic materials instead. The result? Amazing, luxe, and high quality designs. Gone are the days of the “canvas clothed and hippie-esque” vegan stereotype. Nowadays, the words “fashionista” and “faux” collide to create the most beautiful pieces. As someone who LOVES fashion, this could not be more exciting.
