Gift Guide: Holiday Shopping for Everyone!

Holiday shopping is a huge task for those who feel like their list is never-ending. I love shopping for gifts but only if I have a game plan and know exactly what to get everyone. This year my gift guide is going to be easy to navigate through and I hope it helps cover everyone on your list! Happy holiday shopping! HOLIDAY SHOPPING FOR HER BEAUTY 1. STILA COSMETICS One of my favourite things about the holidays are the cute gift sets! These mini Stila long lasting lipsticks and my favourite liquid shimmer eyeshadows.

Stila Holiday Gift Sets For You or Perfect as Holiday Gifts

I’m a stila girl! Because I’m so obsessed with Stila Cosmetics I just had to dive deeper to show you close-ups of these beautiful holiday sets. And if they’re not already gone, I’d suggest you go NOW to get your hands on them. Stila Holiday Gift Sets Not only do these sets make great gift ideas, but they’re also a great way to try so many different colours without purchasing so many full sizes. I always like stocking up during the holidays on these minis because I get to try so many for pretty much the price of one. No commitment. Lots of options. Price is right. You can also break the sets up and give a mini individually as a stocking stuffer or even place it in a customized gift. On my lids: Kitten Karma  – On my lips: Besos

What Happens During Brunch With Bloggers

During my early years as a blogger, I wondered what it would be like to sit among other like-minded individuals in the blogging world. So here I am, this year, with lots of breakfast, lunch/brunch and dinners with other bloggers and I gotta say, what an awesome experience! Some bloggers are very different in person from what I actually thought they’d be like according to their posts and online voice. And others, like the below crew, are exactly the same offline as they present themselves online. When they’re exactly the same, I have to admit I get such a feel-good feeling. It’s wonderful to see that realness and authenticity come to life. So here’s what happens during brunch with bloggers: Bloggers – Left to right: YesMissy – Cat Forsley – Dianas Healthy Living – Maggie Adhami – ME – Shoetease What Happens During Brunch With Bloggers Last month I met up with…

TOP 3 Interactive Ways to Watch Netflix with Your Toddler

To be honest, I’m enjoying the freedom to watch cartoons again. I mean, of course, with him. I read an article a few months back about interacting with your children while they get screen time helps them actually focus and learn from what they’re watching. Otherwise, they can easily fall into just watching shows aimlessly. So here are my TOP 3 interactive ways to watch Netflix with your toddler: TOP 3 Interactive Ways to Watch Netflix with Your Toddler 1. ASK QUESTIONS: Asking your toddler what/why/how pertaining to the episode they’re watching helps them to stay in focus on what’s going on. It always opens communication with the parent. Usually, when I ask questions, soon after I’m holding some toys and we’re reenacting what happened on the scene he just watched on Paw Patrol.Or I’m googling for answers to his questions about specific animals.
