10 EYE OPENING DECISIONS TO MAKE FOR 2019 (& BEYOND)

I’ve always hated rollercoasters. That feeling of your stomach dropping from your throat to your feet just wasn’t for me. I assumed, as long as I stayed off them – I wouldn’t have to endure that awful traumatic feeling that left me crying for hours when I was about 8 years old. Little did I know – that feeling finds you even when you have both feet on the ground.

The past year has been one for the books. Life altering if you want to be utterly dramatic. Just 365 days ago, I thought my world was turned upside down and then thrown around for full effect. I saw no light at the end of my tunnel.

Looking back now, I was EMBARRASSINGLY hopeless. I was inconsolable. No matter what people said or did, I couldn’t snap out of the DESPAIR I blamed others for putting me into.

But here I am. 365 days later. I made it. I’m still standing & I have never felt more fearless in my life.

4 BOOKS THAT CHANGED MY LIFE (& YOU SHOULD READ THEM)

Reading is the ultimate form of escaping your own reality without actually running away from it.

Reading allows you to feel as though you’ve left your problems behind, when in actuality, the right book will do nothing more than reiterate the potential, strength, and beauty that you already have. Sometimes a really good book is just there to remind you of everything you already know but may need to hear someone else say.

The right book will be there to help you feel less alone in your own unconscious, your fears, and your dreams because you’ve established a connection with either a character, or the message itself.

THAT’S what a good book does.

I am an avid reader. Give me a cup of green tea or a great latte, a good book (I am SO not a fan of this whole e-reader generation), a quiet remote comfortable location, and you wont hear from me for hours. People have actually handed me books before just to shut me up and make me go away when I was being utterly annoying adorable.

Philosophies, Satires, Thrillers, Mysteries, Undeniable Love – I enjoy it all. Books are my way to escape reality for a few hours a day. They allow me the opportunity to run away from the dramas of life, from the responsibilities of the day, and just think about something else for a minute. They are my breathe of fresh air, my entertainment, and my education. They let me see the world, travel through time, and teach me new ways of being.

“Books are a uniquely portable magic.”

– Stephen King

There are so many books that I could sit down and discuss for hours. So many books that I would recommend to readers or any sort. But there are only a few books that I can open at anytime in life and find new meaning in based on what I have going on at that time.

There are only so many books that have taught me to think, feel and connect on new levels. The impact that these books have had on me not only continue to translate in my own emotional understanding of my life, but have enriched the way I interact with others and the relationships that this has allowed me to form.

So, what do these 4 books that changed my life all have in common?

Feeling Good Equals Looking Good. Knixwear Lingerie

Note: Funded Post

We’ve all been there. Its a hot summers day, we’re walking a lot, the air flowing up our skirts just isn’t doing it, or worse our jeans are just to warm. There are so many reasons for it, but there really just doesn’t seem to be away around it.

Sweating Vaginas is a thing. Its gross, its uncomfortable and nobody enjoys it.

Being a girl is hard enough with all of our social rules to follow. We are not only expected to feel good all the time, but to look good too.  It is however really hard to feel good about ourselves when we’re walking around feeling wet and sticky.

I used to be a huge fan of going out in the summer and soaking in as much sun as I possibly could. Walking around with my head up, my dresses flowing and a huge smile on my face. It was the most empowering feeling there was for me. I felt and looked good, it was like I was capable of anything in that moment.

Coffee Art: Himalayan Java House Toronto Review

There are certain things in life that truly make me happy, and one of those are coffee shops.  There is nothing more relaxing than grabbing a warm cup of coffee with a friend or significant other and talking for hours. Or simply opening a book and having some time to yourself.

Coffee shops are my go-to place when I want to gossip, think, or work, and I am ALWAYS on the look out for somewhere new to go or try – suggestions welcome btw.

Recently, I got very lucky with a new recommendation given to me about this incredibly cute cafe located at Yonge & Eglinton, Toronto. Not only do they make amazing coffees with Himalayan Java Beans but they also have the sweetest hot chocolate I’ve had in a while. Now I know most coffee shops can make great tasting coffee so whats so great about this place you may ask? Their coffee art obviously. I’ve come to learn that each great place I discover always has one special thing about them, if its themed, specialized in certain foods, or more.

From outside, they have their windows covered in images of all the amazing designs they have already made. From characters like Winnie the Poohs tiger and friends, to celebrities like Marilyn Monroe. Each cup a new design better than the last.

The Pleasure In Comfort: Enjoy Leggings a Subscription Box

Note: Funded Post

Before I start, I would just like to point out that I am a HUGE fan of leggings. I disagree greatly with people who shame others for wearing them because I love them.

I think they are comfortable, and can be styled up with any outfit to go out or stay in. They are no longer just pants to be worn while working out or sitting on the couch- but something that you can now wear everyday if you feel like it.

So realistically when I came across the EnjoyLeggings Subscription Box I had to be a part of it! For only $16.95USD a month (or $49.95/ 3months) for a pair of leggings I figured it to be a steal.

Into The Wild: JANAY LINGERIE Spring/Summer 2018 Collection

I was contacted last week by Janay from Janay Lingerie and was introduced to a truly spectacular collection. Though this was my first time hearing of this brand- I am now hooked.

Janay has just revealed her Spring Summer 2018 collection: Into The Wild and I am so excited to be one of the first few to see it. This collection was inspired by a bohemian theme and it did a perfect job portraying that.

This collection is wild and seductive in its make. I find that by using its mixture of corded lace, printed cotton and soft mesh, the pieces truly capture its wearers eye and anyone that she feels like showing it off to. This collection is unique, sensual, and with its added touch of floral patterns and lace it has the perfect feminine touch.

Lazy Girl Lingerie: The Perfect Lace Bodysuit Review

Note: Funded Post

I was fortunate enough to receive the Adeina Bodysuit this week from Lazy Girl Lingerie, and what a gorgeous piece this is! Made out of beautiful white lace, with a corset back this bodysuit not only emphasizes all your curves, it also adds the perfect amount of sex appeal to your wardrobe.

This beautiful hand crafted lace bodysuit feels amazing on- it sits comfortably on the body, and has absolutely no weight to it as it does not come with Cups, or bone lining. This bodysuit contains 3 visible hemlines dividing the body. One under the bust allowing for a natural breast lift, one across the waist drawing attention to your natural waist line while emphasizing its depth, and on the hip line.

This bodysuit also has sewn in beige inserts on the breast as well as a beige pantie liner keeping it classy for those ladies who want a bit more coverage.  Because of this convenient coverage, this versatile lacy bodysuit can also doubles as a piece you can wear out (with bottoms of course) if wanted as it does give you the necessary coverage to do so. Grab a pair of jeans and a cute blazer and you have the perfect outfit for a night on the town, and than a romantic night in – just don’t forget the candle light and glasses of wine please.
