Earlier this week, I had the pleasure of attending the media preview of the 2017 Green Living Show. This year's Green Living Show is taking place at the Metro Convention Centre April 7th-9th in downtown Toronto. Running for its 11th year, there were many innovative products being featured from this year's show at the preview. I took a few photos to show you what happens at a media preview.
I was looking through my desk the other day and realized I had a ton of clutter. I've been reading a few books that involve minimalism and only owning things that bring you joy. This concept was new to me because growing up, I was very fortunate to have more than I needed. I had more toys than I could play with, and more books than I could read. Minimalism is becoming a very hot topic in modern society because we take a lot for granted. Think about it: when are you going to wear that sweater that still has the tags on it? After reading these books, I realized I need to declutter my life, so why not document it?
Over the past few years, I've started noticing that all-natural products are slowly showing up everywhere. So many people I know are turning to a more natural approach to their lifestyle: being more aware of what they put in/on their body, exercising more and taking better care of their health. In a world of fast and immediate, it's sometimes hard to understand why people are taking it slow by taking a step back from their hectic lives. Why natural? Here's a few reasons that I've dabbled in the world of clean living...
If you've been following the news in 2016, you'll know that it was a rough year. With the start of a new year, it's important to reflect back and assess what went well, what didn't and decide where you want your life to go next. It doesn't take wishing and dreaming and coasting on cruise control though, in order to create the life you want, it takes a lot of mental toughness, self-love and discipline. Luckily Dr. Sanam Hafeez PsyD, a NYC based licensed clinical psychologist, teaching faculty member at the prestigious Columbia University Teacher’s College and the founder and Clinical Director of Comprehensive Consultation Psychological Services shares some key ways to get mentally fit for the new year so you can move forward successfully.
Fall is here and as the leaves begin to change, so do the flowers that are in season. Soon enough, everywhere you look there will new brides planning the happiest day of their lives and a part of wedding planning is choosing the right flowers to fit both the bride and groom’s vision. Flowers set the feel of the wedding and whether they are bright and bold or soft and subtle, the floral arrangements, bouquets and boutineers are an important part of any wedding. Luckily, brides in Ontario don't have to look too far when trying to pick the right flowers.
Let's talk beds, shall we? When you get to a hotel... somehow their bed is so much more luxurious than home, right? That's because their bedding is top notch. Before bedface, I never knew just how important a good night's sleep with good sheets were! (Tips for good sleep in another blog post here!) After trying out the bedface sheets, I knew I needed to let you guys know all about this company. And while we're on the topic of getting real... let's be honest here, when I first got contacted by bedface, I thought that it was just going to be more bedding in my closet that I would have no idea how to fold. (Seriously, what's the deal with fitted sheets?!) Strangely enough, this experience made me appreciate different types of linen and I'm super excited to share the best damn sheets on the internet with you guys.
Wedding season is upon us and a big part of wedding planning is choosing the right flowers. Since spring has finally sprung and has been making an appearance in the big city, I'm excited to start browsing wedding venues and enjoying the outdoors! Different flowers can set the feel of a wedding: bright and bold, or soft and subtle... floral arrangements from bouquets and boutineers to tablesettings are an important aspect of any wedding.
