Modern Outdoor Patio FurnitureIt’s patio season again! Finally! This winter has been rough for the Pacific Northwest – so. much. rain. I’m so happy we’ve had a few days of sunshine, and it’s inspired us to get our patio going! I’ve been scouring pinterest and all my favourite design magazines for outdoor dining and patio inspiration. We’ve picked out a patio set but now I have to dress it up with table runners, candles, plants… I’m so excited for warm nights eating and drinking on our patio! View Post

beauty detox

I’ve noticed that I really care about what’s in the food I eat, and I tend to stay away from ingredients that aren’t derived from nature or are full of chemicals I can’t pronounce. I read labels to try to find the most nutritious and healthy foods I can – so why don’t I do the same with beauty products?

I’ve decided to give my beauty kit a massive detox – getting rid of items with toxic and cancer-causing ingredients, and changing them out for products made naturally and cruelty-free, with ingredients derived from nature, when possible. I’ve discovered there are so many options out there – why I haven’t I started using them before? View Post

How to Practice Self Care - 99 Ways to Practice Self Care for Moms and Entrepreneurs

How often do you take some time to relax and take care of yourself? How often do you spark your inner creativity? Self care and creativity are connected, and when you’re a mom or a creative entrepreneur – or BOTH – it can be hard to find the time to take care of oneself. So, how do you practice self-care when you’re a mompreneur or a creative hustler?

I get bursts of creativity, and they don’t often happen in front of a computer screen when I actually need them the most. Nope, my creativity comes out when I’m far from my office, and I’m out in nature or moving my body. A quick 5-minute walk can set my mind in motion, and usually turns into a 20-minute walk – and the funny thing is that before I go for that walk, I tell myself that I don’t have time for it.

10 Best Things I Did In Israel

My time in Israel flew by so quickly, but I did so many things in such a short amount of time that I’m still processing my travels, weeks later. It’s not so much that we did so many things that I can’t remember all of them, it’s that every thing we did sparked something in me. It inspired me, comforted me, charged me, it made me crave more, it made me more curious, it motivated me – and how do you put an experience like that into words? View Post
