The Thrill of Life: Staying Curious

Hello Darlings, The jolt of energy and excitement that rushes through our body when we experience the unknown. It’s exhilarating to feel that alive  in a split second. Every part within our body is alert, while the heart is pumping and the mind is racing. Everything within that one moment of pure excitement propels us to an extreme state of happiness and what would we not give to prolong that feeling.

On a random Thursday evening, my best friend and I browsed the new arrivals rack at Aritzia. For years the Canadian retailer has been my go-to for stylish basics and neutral additions. There’s something easy and effortless about all of their pieces. They come with no hassle,  just a beautiful fit.

Body Blitz Spas: The Power of Epsom Salts

Hello Darlings, Following a long day nothing compares to having a luxurious bath with a good book and a cup of tea. Over the past few years, I’ve made it my ritual to enjoy a short bath prior to going to bed. Some may say, who has such time but I assure you that those extra 15 minutes can be found. Plus, they are well worth looking for! *Congratulations to our contest winner Nancy!  Aside from loving bubble baths which can be drying on your skin when taken too often, I like to add Epsom salts instead. The healing and…
