It's My Birthday!

Monday, March 28, 2016

Yep, today's my b-day! What sort of things do I have planned for today? Well, I'm just getting over being quite sick... and then having a weird reaction/side-effect from my medication, so I will be getting back to finishing up the video I was working on before that all happened. And also the plumber will be visiting to fix our leaky bathtub faucet, then perhaps a nice dinner out tonight with my love. So, yeh, pretty exciting day planned!

8 Cute & Fun Swimsuits I'm Loving

Friday, March 25, 2016

Swim Season is almost here!!! Well... here is Canada, at least most parts, it might be just slightly early for thinking about this just yet, but for those in areas that hit swim season earlier, this'll be perfect for you now! Plus, some of you may be thinking of tropical vacations, or perhaps you've already got one booked, in which case this type of post is always helpful year round! I love shopping around for what's out there in swimsuits for the upcoming season - it really is just around the corner - and sharing the cute, unique styles I've found with all of you! So let's dive right in! Ha ha ha... "dive in"...

Motivational Monday | FREE Printable - Be Silly, Honest, Kind

Monday, March 21, 2016

This is by far one of my favourite quotes; I even have it as my desktop background on my laptop. It's so simple, and I feel like if we can remember to be these three things, we can keep things in perspective throughout our lives - "Be silly. Be Honest. Be Kind."

Eye Makeup DO'S & DON'TS for Mature (or Hooded) Eyes

Monday, March 14, 2016

As we age our eyes become more saggy and droopy resulting in something that is called "hooded eyes". All this means is the your upper eye lid has a bit of extra skin that droops over the crease. This can happen in varying degrees and become worse the older we get. I think it's important to note that you can have hooded eyes at a younger age (two examples are Blake Lively and Emma Stone), I myself do have somewhat hooded eyelids, but in that case it is just due being born with that eye shape, and not because of age related drooping.

Motivational Monday - A Beautiful Day | FREE Printable

Monday, March 7, 2016

Think about a day you've had when things just weren't going right or something bad happened... Now think about a time when someone did something nice for you, or even just a stranger gave you an unexpected smile, on one of these "bad days"... how did you feel afterwards? I bet it lifted your spirits. Perhaps it even changed the entire feeling of the day and shifted your day in a better direction, all because it was kind and because that kindness made you smile and feel good in return. That person may not have known how much you needed it, but that's how powerful kindness is; it has the ability to transform, not just an average day, even a horrible day into something that sparkles with beauty! And that power is within you, you have the ability to give someone a better day; you're like a freaking super hero when you think about it, and Kindness is your super power! Use it, even if all you have to offer is a smile, touch someone's day with kindness - you never know what someone could be going through, and your kindness could mean more than you realize!

DIY Inspiration - Cement Projects

Thursday, March 3, 2016

I've been noticing a lot of cement DIY projects around the DIY blogs over the past little while, and really like the look of a lot of them, so, of course, I'd like to make some of my own, and then share my creations with you all in an upcoming DIY cement project tutorial... you know, as per the usual. I'm pretty sure that I know what I'm going to make with my cement - probably a few different projects - I just have to get all my supplies gathered, maybe do some testing, and then before you know it,  I'll have something up here on the blog for you all, so keep checking back!
