Instagram. 
I’m curious what kind of accounts you typically follow on Instagram. I think it’s because I’d like to know how similar we are. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I actually have two Instagram accounts. One for personal stuff where I strictly follow friends and family, and this one, for my business. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll start by sharing with you what kind of accounts I follow: 
1. Other artists - lots and lots of other artists who create beautiful work that inspires me. Artists that teach me, and even some that mentor me. 
2. Gardeners - I love gardening and I love to follow other gardeners. Probably because I hope one day, in this super short growing season, that I’ll figure out how to be a productive, fruitful gardener. 
3. Interior Designers - I’d love to have a really beautiful house that totally reflects my personality. 
4. Homeschoolers - So I can be inspired to do and be the best for my children. 
5. Influencers - but just a few. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Are you strictly a friends and family only person or who do you like to mix it up? Businesses, food, comedy, fashion, celebrities...? I’d love it if you would share your favourite accounts in the comments. Is there someone that we all need to follow like right now?!

️Vor 11 Tagen bin ich aus Südengland heimgekommen, und doch scheint's mir als wären grade mal ein paar Tage vergangen. ️ Fotos anschauen, in Erinnerungen schwelgen und das um 00:20 Uhr... naja manchmal ist es halt einfach so.  Morgen pack ich schon wieder meinen Koffer, aber dieses Mal nur einen Kleinen. (Überforderungsgefahr nicht so hoch ) Es geht in die schöne Stadt Salzburg, meine zweite Heimat. Ich hab zwar noch nie dort gewohnt, aber da ich von klein auf immer wieder zu meinen Großeltern in diese großartige Stadt fahren durfte, ist das Gefühl, das ich mit diesem Ort verbinde ein großes Heimatgefühl.  Habt ihr auch so einen Ort, an dem ihr nicht wohnt, aber an dem ihr euch einfach wohl und absolut Zuhause fühlt? Also für mich wird es ganz sicher immer diese eine Stadt sein!

I personally think that everyone should write their own vows on their wedding day. Even if said in private and not at the ceremony. Vows are such a personal thing. When my husband and I got married I stayed up all night one night trying to figure out what I wanted to vow to forever. I wanted him to know exactly what he could expect of me in the future.  Everyone’s vows are so different and meaningful. If you’re married can you tell me something you’ve bow to your spouse on your wedding day?

Having a bit of a moment sitting at my desk while I wait for 5pm to strike! 
.
I am just SHOOK every Monday when I get that satisfying little email that I got paid again for my efforts months ago.
.
Yep, it all started with a superfood smoothie and gaining my health back, but it is soooo much more than that!
.
Today I look at this email and I'm reminded of a true gift that has been brought into my life and the importance of paying that forward.
.
My heart is feeling really pulled to hustle hard, dream bigger, count my blessing and take people with me!!!
.
If you’re craving time freedom, a like-minded community, purpose, passion, supportive friends, a secondary income, the ability to design your days, or just some more money for brunch and mimosas 🥂 I’d love to connect you with an opportunity to have all of that and more!!

Work on yourself, for yourself, by yourself. 
Do you ever think to yourself: I’ll start once I find the motivation? Do you watch people on social media who seem like they have it all together and hate them for having this seemingly endless supply of motivation to pull from?

News flash: those people are no different than you are. 
I used to watch those same people on social media. I used to think to myself there was NO WAY I was getting up to workout before work. I used to tell myself that if I was as happy as they were then maybe working out and meal planning would come more easily. 
Until I finally realized I needed to make a change and show up for MYSELF. So I did it even when I didn’t feel like it. I did it because I was over feeling tired and defeated, and because I finally realized that yes, changing is hard, but staying the same is even harder. 
You have to act the way you want to feel. Fake it til you make it. Create the you that you want to be.

If you need the tools, resources, support, and accountability along the way - you know where to find me! I’m here to help! #thehappierhealthcrew

What you teach your children, you also teach their children.

"What you teach your children, you also teach their children."

As you may or may not have seen on my IG story from this past weekend, my feet literally look like Vienna sausages with all this swelling  It was hilarious to see everyone’s responses. No worries you guys, I am healthy and I do not have preeclampsia. Unfortunately this is just my “thing” in this pregnancy. 🤷‍️ So my hubby took it upon himself to do all heavy work and go grocery shopping for us so that I could rest my piggies  I was able to stay by my bed side, create my nest of pillows, elevate my feet and get some work done to prepare the business for my time off maternity leave. Rest & work... you can do both lol. 
Thank you @joshtirado for all of your help. I appreciate you so much ️

This is me. 27 years old. Mom of two. Hi ‍️ Ten years ago I began showing signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I was dealing with pain you can’t even imagine. If you’ve been in the same shoes, hats off to you folks. It was ten years ago that I got in my car to head to practice and couldn’t reach back to put my seatbelt on. It was ten years ago that I so vividly remember waking up for school and not being able to get up out of bed. It was ten years ago that i remember hearing those words in the doctors office, “rheumatoid arthritis”, treatment options were a “mild form of chemotherapy”. I was 18. I thought to myself, how could this be my life? 
Ten years down the road, here we are. After many sleepless nights, thoughts of if I’d ever live a normal life, it’s finally happened. This morning at my Rheumatology appointment I got to hear those sweet, sweet words “YOU’RE IN REMISSION”. It took all I had in me to hold it together. 
All the years of shoving medication down my throat. Taking injections week after week. Insomnia. Weight gain. Addiction to sleep medication. Uncontrollable hunger. Mouth sores. Pain killers. Steroids. Hair loss. Irregular hormones. Mood swings. Being told I’d be on these medications for life, you can’t have children while taking these. It has all finally come to an end. 
It’s been a couple years since I’ve had to take a full regimen of medication. (Thanks to the supplements you all hear me rave about.) Lately I’ve only been taking one medication on an as needed basis. It’s been working out great. Today i got to schedule my next appointment A YEAR OUT FROM NOW. That’s never happened! Incredible. I have no words other than to God be all the glory! 
Y’all if there’s someone you know suffering from something similar, show them my story. I’m begging you. Share with them the turnaround that I have made and show them that it IS possible. There are other therapies out there other than western medicine. It’s not the only answer.

I think Piper and I might stay here today.. I WISH!!! It is so different with your first born. You could have those dayz snuggled together in bed and not having to go anywhere or do anything. I sometimes worry that Piper and I haven’t been able to bond enough in her first 6 months which I know is so crucial. Mothering of 2 or more really is a juggle and sometimes a struggle. Going to keep on learning how to juggle but also remember what a struggle it was to get this little ball of sunshine ️ And count my blessings

Taking a little walk around the yard surrounded by a cloud of little boys, asking all the questions, chatting about all the things. Such an adorable little tribe we have! 🥰
I'm getting back into meeting my walking goals again, very slowly. This has been a whirlwind summer, I haven't felt like I've had time to breathe let alone walk or cook or workout or even journal much  any of those little things I do for myself that make such a big difference. Which is actually fine and all part of the plan. I'm always happiest in summer, so letting those fall away so we could zoom focus on the kiddos made perfect sense! We're just getting into a routine again, the one that'll carry us into the autumn. And now I'm once again finding fringe moments for self care. I'm journalling again and it has been SO RICH! Feels like coming home after a long journey. You'll probably see more of me around here. And I'm so looking forward to puling out my yoga mat again!

I feel the same way about fresh sheets straight of the dryer, girl.

This smile right here means so much to my mama heart, because it hasn’t always been easy for this guy to go to school. But now he LOVES it - he’s literally skipping out the school door with a big smile on his face, and that just melts my heart! So yay to school start, learning new things and making new friends. Oh and now I have so much time on my hands I can’t even complain and say I don’t have time to excercise anymore  Lets see if I’m ready for it! (First day was last Monday, but we’re not very good at the ‘gram’ lately)

Current Makeup Faves.
___________________________________________
Nyx Off Tropic Eyeliner (Crushin' It) - this is such a brilliant eyeliner. It's a gorgeous bright pink shade and the formula is pigmented, smooth, long-lasting and transfer-proof.
___________________________________________
Real Techniques Stippling Brush - this brush does a great job at distributing cream/liquid blushes without creating any streaks or patches and without moving the foundation underneath.
___________________________________________
3CE Take a Layer Multi-Pot (Common Time) - this is a rather 'dry' cream blush that has beautiful and even pigmentation. It's such an easy product to apply and blend and the shade (an orange-red) is gorgeous.
___________________________________________
Colourpop Single Eyeshadows (Try Me, Making Moves, Chic Happens) - CP's pressed powder eyeshadow formula is one of my faves. These shades blend like a dream!
___________________________________________
Nabla Single Eyeshadow (Absinthe) - this is a gorgeous icy blue-purple duochrome and the formula is super smooth (and almost glossy/ wet-looking). Because it lacks a bold base pigment, this eyeshadow is perfect as a topper shade and as an inner corner highlight.

Makeup Review: Hourglass Veil Translucent Setting Powder (mini size from Cult Beauty).
___________________________________________
This is a super hyped up product that I did not like at all. Firstly, the holes in sifter are so small so I struggled to get enough powder out of the tub. Secondly, the powder isn't as finely milled as I would've liked it to be. But, despite this, the powder wasn't chunky or uneven when applied to the skin. My main problem with this powder is that it didn't actually set my makeup. Because of this, the liquid makeup on my face creased, transferred and didn't last as long as it usually does. Also, this powder looked super cakey on my skin and emphasized every bit of acne, texture and lines. Seriously, this powder settled into lines and texture I didn't even know I had. My undereye area looked drier than the Sahara desert. On a more positive note, the powder didn't leave a white cast on my skin.

I ended up decluttering this product after a few uses and I definitely will not repurchase. That being said, a lot of people love this powder so what may not work for me may work for you (and vice versa). Have you tried this product? Comment down below! #burgundyxhourglass

I often get asked why I wear a bean around my neck. For many of you who don't know, I was born with Vesicoureteral Reflux, a condition in which urine back-flows into the kidney(s) causing severe permanent damage if not detected early. Unfortunately that was the case with me when my kidney almost ruptured at the age of 2, requiring several emergency surgeries on my kidney, ureter & bladder. A chunk of my childhood was spent in & out of hospitals, having endless tests run and traveling to see the best specialists in the province. As I've aged my kidney function continued to deteriorate (getting as low as 8% ) resulting in the removal of my right kidney almost 6 years ago (Thanks to the top Urologist in Calgary, he’s my life saver!!) Although my health is not 100% and I still deal with reoccurring stubborn kidney infections that leave me in the hospital for days on end, I'm incredibly grateful for the life I live. I wear this kidney bean for the kidney I lost and as a little reminder to myself to properly care for the kidney I still have (especially since its function is not always ideal). March is National Kidney Month & today marks World Kidney Day, so do yourself a favour friends and get your kidneys screened!! If you battle with diabetes, hypertension (like me) or have a family history of kidney failure your screening is FREE, so no excuses!  Never take your health for granted, we only live once!!
