Morning and Evening Journal

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to talk about mental health. It is a topic I hold near and dear to my heart as it is something I tackle every day along with many, many other people.
Thankfully it has become easier to talk about mental health online, and many people have bravely opened up with their own battles to
help others feel less alone.

I won’t go into detail about my own mental health journey in this post, but I do want to share something with you that has helped me significantly through harder times.
Journaling. Now I am not the first to discover the benefits of using a daily journal. I took inspiration from many other people to start doing it myself. I found that by starting my day with a few minutes to sort out my thoughts I could break through some of my anxious brain fog.

Most of all, I found that reflecting again at the end of the day I could observe my thoughts from a distance and without judgment.
Sometimes, oddly enough, I didn’t feel quite ready to answer certain questions in my morning journal, but when I revisited them at the end of the day I felt like I had more clear answers. I also noticed that my level of anxiety in the morning was always far different than how I felt at the end of the day, and it gave me some optimism for the future!

I wanted to share with you some of my favorite questions and exrsizes for journaling all wrapped up in a cute aesthetic post!

I hope everyone is having a happy and healthy October!

Welcoming Autumn

Hello everyone!

I feel like I’m welcoming Autumn with an especially warm hug this year. It’s as though I am finally able to breath deep and catch a glimpse of a more relaxed pace. Does anyone else feel this way?

Besides being relaxed, I am so excited for all the fun Autumn activities we are still able to enjoy during these ever changing times.

Things I am looking forward to this Fall are: enjoying everything in Pumpkin Spice Flavour πŸ˜‹ Staying in watching movies on stormy nights. And more mushroom picking adventures with Alex and our pup!

What are your favourite Fall traditions? πŸŽƒ

Copper Gold Eye Look β˜€οΈπŸ₯‚

Hello everyone! Happy August to you! β˜€οΈ

I know it’s been a while since I posted. School kept me crazy busy with my Airbrushing final project and basically every waking moment I had was spent painting, or planning it. πŸ˜…

But I’m back! And ready for a fun post! I recently did a very summer themed makeup look and I really wanted to share it! It’s one of my favourite looks even for Fall because it uses lots of copper and gold eyeshadows. 😊 (not that I’m thinking about fall yet)

Outfit For A Day on the Boat πŸ³

Hello loves!

I know the first day of summer isn’t for another month, but today feels pretty darn close!

We are going on the first boat ride of the season today and I am so excited. 🐳

I really am a country girl at heart and going out into nature is my favourite way to unplug, relax, and find some quiet time.

I wanted to do a quick little outfit of the day since I’m wearing one of my favourite lazy-lounging outfits. Does anyone else have that? Outfits that are super comfy but dressier than sweats or PJ’s? I feel like I always go for them. πŸ˜†

I am also just realized that I’m basically dressed head to toe in H&M or Forever 21. πŸ˜…

No makeup day today. 😘

Hat: H&M

Jean Shirt: Forever 21

Pink T-shirt: H&M

Sweat Pants: Forever 21

Shoes: Denver Hayes

Watch: Fit Bit (gotta count those steps!)

Time to hit the water! πŸ³πŸŽ‰

If you live in Canada I hope you have a fabulous May Long Weekend 😊

And everyone else in the world have a wonderful Saturday too!
