SWEATPANTS / SWEAT SUITS
I’ve finally retired my freebie sweaties from a fast food restaurant (that will remain nameless) and did a full upgrade. Since this year has been spent at home mostly in soft pants, I decided I needed a much nicer pair that were comfortable, warm, and had pockets. The Lululemon Scuba Joggers fit that bill perfectly. I even got the matching Scuba Zipped Hoodie too. (Both items were gifted but I ended up buying a second pair of the pants on my own because they’re so damn good.)
Over the last few years I’ve been reducing waste in different facets of my life and period products is one of them. It all started with the the Diva Cup which I eventually upgraded to the far superior Saalt Cup and also added some period undies to the mix.I’ve been loving my pairs from Knix. They’re amazing for the days when you just want to not deal with a period at all. Bedtime? No problem, period panties. Going out for a long period of time and don’t want to have to empty your period cup in a public washroom? No problem. It’s truly changed my life.
The Saalt Cup is far superior to the Diva Cup just based on material alone. I always found the Diva Cup to be made of such hard plastic, it was always a struggle using it. Enter the Saalt Cup…. it’s made of super soft silicone, it’s BPA free, and it even come with a cute lil bag to store it in.
PEANUTS X ERSTWILDER
My sister gifted me these for Christmas and quite frankly, they’ve been bringing me a ton of joy since then. The whole collection is still available on their site (not affiliate linked).
SLIP SILK SCRUNCHIES
I’ve talked about these scrunchies numerous times and it’s because they have saved me from a lot of hair damage since I’ve started using them. Being able to slip off a hair tie effortlessly makes such a difference when it comes to keeping my hair from breaking. Because these scrunchies are made of silk, I don’t have to fight to get my hair out of a ponytail or messy bun anymore. If you haven’t made the switch yet, I really recommend trying it and let me know what you think!
BAILEY NELSON GLASSES
Spending time in front of screens has been a long standing activity I’ve done but it certainly feels like I’ve upped my screen time even more these days. Glasses with blue light filters are a non-negotiable now. because of that. I have fewer headaches and at the end of the day. my eyes aren’t feeling like they’re being incinerated anymore. The latest pair of glasses I’m wearing give me a bit of a Buddy Holly vibe too.

MEGAN MACWHIRTER EARRINGS
These are the cutest earrings of all time hands down. Megan is an incredible artist, Every piece of her ceramic jewelry and home accessories are so damn adorable. I can’t get enough of her work! And she’s based in Alberta too. 🙂
Facial massage and moisturizing the only routines I have been able to keep up. I’m holding on by a thread but at least I smell dreamy and my face isn’t tense. There are SO MANY excellent YouTube tutorials on how to use a Gua Sha as well as giving yourself facial massages without a tool. I’m practicing a combination of both!
I’ve spent a small fortune on candles trying to make my space as enjoyable as possible and I have no regrets. I’m oscillating between Sydney Hale Co and Astier de Villatte. Both brands create such sumptuous combination of scents. My preference leans to the woodsy and musky scents. There are few florals I have tolerance for but Lilac is always the exception to that rule.
SYDNEY HALE CO Eucalyptus + Sage Candle & Room Spray
SYDNEY HALE CO Woodsmoke + Amber Candle
ASTIER DE VILLATTE Hollywood Incense
ASTIER DE VILLATTE Porte Des Lilas Candle (this smells like a gorgeous lilac bush)
