2017 Favourites – May and June

Last month was a hard month for me. Fuck, I’ll be honest. The past few months have been a little hard on and off. I really slacked as far as blogging goes and then the fact that the charging cord for my computer broke didn’t help matters. But no matter! I have plenty of favourites to share with you since I didn’t get around to doing my May favourites. Buckle up! We’re on a roller coaster that only goes up, friends.

IMG_7788

01. Purple Shampoo/Conditioner. I recently dyed my hair. I’m naturally a dirty, dark blonde; kind of leaning a bit more on the brown side. I’m also starting to go grey and I have a patch of pure white hair. So I’ve added more blonde to my hair and I think that in the future, I might want to go a bit more towards white. All of that being said, my hair routine has gotten a lot more involved. I wanted t buy a purple shampoo and conditioner to balance out any yellow tones in my hair and this combo from Drybar had amazing reviews. I love it. It smells like salon shampoo, it makes my hair feel soft and healthy, and it really helps my blonde. I am totally in love with this stuff.

02. Ouai Dry Shampoo Foam and Texturizing Spray. I recently spoke about this in my last blog post so I won’t go on and on again. You can find that post HERE.

03. Ouai Rose Hair and Body Oil. Again, I just did a post about Ouai products so you can find that at the link above.

04. Sheet Masks. I think that I need an intervention. I am in love with sheet masks. No. That’s not the right word. I am OBSESSED with sheet masks. They feel so good on my skin, I can try a bunch of different brands that I might not try normally, and they’re just fun. I almost never place an order from Sephora without adding on at least one sheet mask. These masks from Dr. Jart have been some of my favourite but I love so many different kinds.

05. Candles. My best friend and I recently went to Edmonton on a shopping trip and while there, we stopped into Bath and Body Works. Their candles are some of my favourite and I like getting a few for the new season. These spring candles make my heart happy.

IMG_7793

06. Nest Perfume. I love perfume. It’s a weakness that I can’t afford. A good perfume just pulls everything together and I decided to spring and get this one. I love Nest as a brand but this one, called Indigo, is a lovely scent. It’s unlike anything that I’ve ever worn before. The site says that it’s an ‘exotic’ scent with notes of Moroccan tea, Kashmir wood, cardamon, wild fig, and bergamot. I adore it.

IMG_7795

07. David’s Tea. I am a tea drinker. I am a tea lover. Going into spring and summer, I love fruity and light teas. I got the Oasis collection from David’s Tea so that I could try out a bit of everything. I also got this amazing travel cup that makes it really easy to turn any tea into an iced tea. It’s been perfect for around the house and at work.

IMG_7790

08. Too Faced Bronzer. I had heard about this chocolate bronzer before but I’ve always been a little nervous about getting something like this because I am so bloody pale. I’ve always been worried that it would make me look orange or fake. What I really like about this bronzer is that it’s very build-able. It also blends out really easily so it doesn’t make me look like I’m trying too hard. Plus…it smells like chocolate. What?!

IMG_7792

09. Origins Lotion. Origins has been a company that’s been good to my skin. I got this lotion and I adore it. It has a rather watery texture but it still adds a lot of moisture to my skin. It’s great for warmer seasons.

IMG_7796

10. Juice Beauty Serum. I’ve had some pretty bad hormonal and stress pimples lately so I wanted to get something that would help. This serum promises to clear blemishes and it does just that. I put this on the other night when I started to get a bad zit on my chin and in the morning, it was almost gone.

IMG_7794

11. Loreal Mascara. This is the feline mascara and I LOVE it. I have been looking for a decent mascara from the drug store and I wanted something new so I picked this one out. It’s very fluttery and I love how big it makes my lashes look. It reminds me of a Lancome mascara that I have. I think it’s a good dupe.

12. Real Her Liquid Lipstick. I got this in the spring Fab Fit Fun box. It’s really good quality. In the picture, it looks a little glossy but it dries down to a matte and it does not budge. I have to scrub this off at the end of the day which is exactly how I like my lipstick.

IMG_7797

13. Melodrama by Lorde. I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am that Lorde has new music out. This album has been so much fun to listen to. She’s such an incredible artist and this album has been on repeat.

14. Harry Style’s by Harry Styles. I really wasn’t sure what to expect from his solo career but I was pleasantly surprised. He’s made some rather wonderful music and the whole album has just been such a joy to listen to.

15. Hasan Minhaj’s Home Coming King. I’ve been a fan of Hasan for a while now from his stuff on The Daily Show. I think he’s hilarious. So I was thrilled when I saw that he had a special coming to Netflix. He did not disappoint. I’ve never seen a comedy special like this. It’s part show, part special, part motivational speech. There is so much love and attention in this piece and I’ve already watched it a few times.

2017 Favourites – April

Is it just me or has April gone by in the blink of an eye? I don’t know where this month went, I really don’t. The weather has been getting me down lately, to be honest with you. I haven’t been in the best headspace and I think it had to do with the fact that it’s so cold and rainy and gross out. I just want spring! So here are a few of the things that have made me happy during this grey month. 

IMG_7690

01. Bento Box. I’ve wanted to get one of these pretty little bento boxes that I kept seeing on Instagram and Pinterest. I try to make sure that I am bringing food with me to work so that I am eating well and saving money. I finally got myself one of these boxes and have been loving it. It makes it fun to pack a lunch the night before and it’s just so pretty!

02. Converse Sneakers. Wearing these sneakers make me feel like myself. Like many people my age, I had a strong emo phase as a teenager and Converse sneakers were part of my uniform. I’ve wanted to get a new pair of these shoes for a long time and I finally got them. I’ve been wearing them almost every single day and every time that I look down at them, they make me so very happy.

IMG_7692

03. Gypsy 05 Roundie. This month, I got my first FabFitFun box and in this one, it came with this blanket. I adore mine. I think it’s so very pretty and while the weather has been crap, I’m really looking forward to taking this blanket down to the park in the summer with a good book. It just makes me feel good. It’s making me look forward to the summer.

04. Dr. Brandt Exfoliator. Skin care is something that I’ve really gotten invested in when I turned 25. I really want to protect my skin and make sure that it’s looking it’s best. I got this exfoliator in my FabFitFun box and have included it into my skin care routine. So far, it’s been really nice. I like the way it makes my skin feel and it smells really clean.

05. Deborah Lipman Nail Polish. Again, another little pick from my FabFitFun box. I am a lover of nail polish and this set has been adorable for spring. This blue just makes me so happy.

IMG_7691

06. Haute Mess Pouch. This pouch is just adorable and it’s a great size. I’ve been using it as a catch all in my daily bag but it was great as a purse when I went out once and I think it’s going to be fantastic for travelling.

07. Karuna Sheet Masks. I adore sheet masks and just masks in general. I love how relaxing they are and these particular masks are so calming and moisturizing. I am really liking them and I’m looking into trying other products from this line.

IMG_7693

08. Striped Cold Shoulder Top. My wardrobe is lacking. I have a hard time buying clothes for myself. I always have reasons to not buy things I like. However, I decided to just go for it and get this top from Forever21. I love it. I love the way it makes me feel and I got a ton of compliments when I last wore it. I love how good it makes me feel.

17903931_1316022211849118_7474599568802508782_n

09. L’Oreal True Match Lumi Highlighter. As far as makeup goes, I am trying to dip my toes into the world of highlighters. There are many higher end products that I want to try but until I get there, this drug store highlighter is fantastic.

10. Whispers of Love Oracle Cards. These cards were a gift to me from my best friend a while ago. I played with them a lot when I first got them but then I stopped playing with them and I’ve recently picked them up again. They’re wonderful cards, full of love.

IMG_7694

11. Bubbles. I am so happy!!! Bubbles were a lovely easter gift from my best friend’s mom and they make me so happy. Bubbles are just the best, guys.

12. Origins Original Skin Essence Lotion. Back to skincare, I am loving this lotion. It has a rather watery consistency and I really like it. It’s not heavy like a lotion but it’s moisturizing like a lotion. It’s some kind of magical skin potion and I am loving it.

2017 Favourites – March

It’s that time of the month again! I am really enjoying making these posts. It’s just positive vibes. The stuff that I am loving in the past month. It just makes me feel good to think back on all the things that have brought me joy. So without further ado…my favourites from March!

IMG_7647

01. Wardley Betta Fish Pellets. Let’s star off with some of Sirius’ favourite things…I got this new food for him while I was at Walmart and he loves it. If you’re in the market for some fish food, this is great. Pellets are a hell of a lot easier to clean out too, by the way.

02. Lavender Sleep Spray. As I’ve said before and I will say again, sleep is something that seems to elude me. My whole family seems to have issues with sleep as we all get together and talk about what we’re doing to help us sleep. Lavender scents have always helped me relax and so I found this spray from a local shop in town and it’s been wonderful. You just spray it on your pillows and sheets before you go to bed and it just relaxes you so much.

03. Nature’s Bounty: Hair, Skin, and Nails Gummies. I adore these gummy vitamins. They taste good and they seem to really be helping! It’s always good to tae vitamins to help your body and I quite like these.

04. Adult Essentials Multivitamin Gummies. These are some other gummy vitamins that I have been enjoying. They taste good and they seem to help. I’ve always had a hard time remembering to take my vitamins but for some reason, I am finding it really easy to remember to eat these gummy vitamins. Maybe it’s just because they taste so good!

IMG_7649

05. Sephora Cleansing Wipes, Micellar Milk, and Cream Face Wash. I spoke about these in my last post about rose. They’re good quality and I love that they’re all in a rose scent. There’s just something about good skin care that makes me so happy.

06. Food, Health, and Happiness by Oprah Winfrey. So Oprah is my hero and my best friend, Erin, is my hero for getting me this book for my birthday. I just adore everything Oprah and this book is no exception. She provides us with the most amazing recipes and funny stories and it’s just been a fantastic read.

07. Bumble and Bumble Don’t Blow It. This is a cream that you run through your hair out of the shower and it helps to enhance your natural texture while keeping your hair healthy and soft. My hair has been loving it and it really is soft after using it.

08. Canada Dry Blackberry Ginger Ale. So ginger ale is my favourite. It’s just one of the best drinks ever in my opinion and over the holidays, they had a cranberry flavoured ginger ale that I LOVED. When they took it off the shelves, I was crushed. But then I discovered this new blackberry ginger ale and it is SO GOOD. If you’re a ginger ale lover, give it a try.

09. Origins Original Skin Face Mask. As I have said, I adore good skin care and this mask is GOOD. My skin is so soft and bright and alive after using it and because it’s a mud mask, it is really amazing for clearing acne, too. It’s just fantastic. It has this exfoliating texture that you sort of scrub in after it’s dried on your face and it changes everything for the better.

10. Pencil Case. I needed a new pencil case and I was looking around the Chapters sight and I finally found this one. I love white and I love minimal designs and this pencil case is exactly what I was looking for. Besides, it feels so much more grown up to use this instead of something hot pink that you get in the school supplies section of Walmart.

IMG_7648

11. Spring Mug. Another find from Walmart, thanks to Erin. This mug has made me so very happy. I got a pretty bowl to go with it. It just makes having my morning coffee or my evening tea feel so happy. It looks like spring! God, I can’t wait for flowers and sunshine and bike rides again.

12. L’Oreal Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Dye. I gave this a try and fell in love! My hair is a little too dark for it but I do have white hairs that picked up the colour really well. It’s basically a hair dye that is supposed to last for only 4 to 8 shampoos and it comes in quite a few colours. I grabbed pink and I loved it. It’s just fun to have some colour in my hair again.

13. Post It Notes. Pretty stationary makes me happy. These post it notes and from the Colours of the World collection and these colours are inspired by Bali. I adore that they’re not neon colours and the size is perfect for writing lists.

12. Tarte Blush in Paaarty. This was part of the birthday present from Sephora and it’s brilliant. It’s such a universally flattering shade and the quality of Tarte blushes are just to die for!

IMG_7645

13. Australian Outback Messenger Bag. This is a rediscovery for me. I’ve had this bag for a long time but I have picked it up again and have been using it as my regular bag for the past month. I love the way it looks and it’s fantastic quality. It’s just a great bag.

14. Fish Tank Accessories. Near the beginning of the month, I got a new fish tank for my fish and just in the past week, I was able to get a few more things for it. I’ve been loving decorating it and playing with it. It’s fun and it’s been nothing but enjoyable.

IMG_7641

15. Divide by Ed Sheeran. Let me just start off by saying that I have been in love with Ed Sheeran for a very, very long time. I always feel really hipster when it comes to Ed. He got really famous on his second album and especially with his song Thinking Out Loud. I have been listening to his music since his first album came out and every time there is a new Ed Sheeran album, I listen to it to death. This is pretty well the only album that I’ve been listening to and it’s AMAZING. I still love every moment of it.

Self Care: It’s All Coming Up Roses

Self care is a big thing in my life and it’s something that I try to focus on as much as possible. It helps me function through the week. There are a variety of different things I use to help myself relax and come back down to earth and settle down a little bit. I’ll be writing posts about those in the future. This post is about rose.

I love rose. I think it goes back to being a kid. I remember my mom always have a rose body wash and a rose body cream. I remember going on walks with her and she would literally stop everything to smell the roses (I grew up in a province that is known for its wild roses). They say that certain smells are the things that can trigger memories and for me, when I smell roses, it takes me back to the comfort of my mother. There’s just something so comforting about it for me.

So while rose has a lot of sentimental value to me, I’ve also been learning about the benefits of rose. It’s really good for you!

IMG_7619

They say that drinking rose tea can help with…
01. Menstrual pains
02. Boosting your immune system
03.Improving your digestion 
04. Helping reduce stress and anxiety
05. Weight loss

And then as far as cosmetics go, rose is FULL of vitamin C and they say that is promotes essential collagen production (which keeps your hair and skin healthy). I’ve been told that rose will help improve acne, it’s incredibly brightening, and also naturally moisturizing (so it doesn’t leave you feeling oily and gross)

As the years have gone on, I have really developed a collection of rose items and I don’t even have everything that I want yet. These are a few of the things that I really enjoy.

IMG_7614

01. Naked 3 from Urban Decay
02. Rose Bombshell Bath Bomb from Lush
03. Rosewater Balancing Mist from Jurlique 
04. Creme de Rose Lip Balm from Dior
05. Original Skin Retexturizing Mask with Rose Clay from Origins 
06. Rose Micellar Cleansing Milk from Sephora
07. Revved Up Nail Polish from Formula X
08. Rose Gold Watch from Michael Kors
09. Rosewater Hand and Body Cream from Crabtree and Evelyn 
10. Paaarty Blush from Tarte
11. Piece of Cake Juicy Shaker from Lancome
12. R0se Quartz
13. Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks from Kat Von D
14. Rose Cleansing Cream from Sephora
15. Serenity Now Tea from David’s Tea
16. Rose Cleansing Wipes from Sephora

Rose feels like a power colour for me. It feels like something I need in my life. They say that rose quartz is the stone of ‘unconditional love and infinite peace’ and that it ‘draws off negative energy and replaces it with loving vibes’.

In all, it just makes me feel really friggin good. I think that finding just one thing, one simple thing, like roses, will help be the first step in learning to take care of yourself.

2017 Favourites – February

It’s that time of the month! Favourites time! I don’t have a ton of favourites for this month, it seemed to really fly by and I ended up just using a lot of the same favourites from last month. I do have a few things, however, that I wanted to talk about. 

img_7573

01. Addition Elle Bra. I think that every woman should have a bra and underwear set that makes them feel sexy. Doesn’t matter if there is someone who is seeing it or not. You walk through the world differently when you feel sexy. As a plus size woman who has always struggled with my weight, being able to feel good is HUGE. Since teaming up with Ashley Graham, Addition Elle has come up with some incredibly beautiful pieces that fit and feel sexy.

02. Love Crunch Granola in Aloha Blend (Pineapple, Coconut, and White Chocolate). I spoke about my favourite breakfast in my last post and this granola is to blame for that. I’ve really been loving the flavours and it’s a good quality granola. I can’t wait to buy more!

03. Lokai Bracelet. I’m sure that you know about this bracelet. It contains mud from the Dead Sea and water from Mount Everest, reminding us to stay humble in times of success and have hope in times of struggle. It’s a bracelet that I have wanted for a very long time and I finally decided to get it this month. I have been loving it. They recently put out a bracelet that is an orange colour with a portion of the proceeds going to support a mental health charity and boy, do I want that bracelet!

img_7572

04. Welcome to Paradise, Now go to Hell by Chas Smith. This is a book that I have read before. I adored it. I truly loved this book. I needed a book to read one day and I just grabbed this one and I have fallen back into it. It’s a memoir by Chas Smith about his time on the North Shore of Oahu and the surf culture there. It’s about the locals and their fierce protection of their waves and the way that these local manipulate the surf brands that hold their competitions at Pipeline. If you’re into surfing, I recommend this book, it’s a fascinating read.

05. Dr. Jart+ Pore Minimalist Sheet Mask. Skin care is one of my favourite things in the world and I love sheet masks. I decided to try out this one. It’s the first product I’ve ever had from Dr. Jart+ but I love it and I plan on buying more of the sheet masks to try them all out!

06. Sally Hansen Therapy Nail Polish in Re-Nude. It’s been a while since I’ve gotten a nail polish from the drug store but the colours in this line had been calling my name. I will say that it’s hard to get this to look opaque on the nails. I have to do quite a few thin coats of the stuff to get it to how I want it to be. That being said, this colour is worth it. It’s the perfect nude for me and I am in love. I love a good nude.

07. Tombow Dual Brush Pens Portrait Set. I have mentioned these pens in a previous favourites and will likely talk about them more in a future post about my bullet journal. I recently got myself this set that I’ve wanted for a very long time that has all of these dusty pinks and muted nudes and I adore it.

08. Hard Candy Tea. This is another rediscovery this month. I adore this tea from the David’s Tea summer collection and lately, I’ve been craving fruity teas. I picked this one back up and I am loving it. It’s a refreshing blend of apple, sour cherries, cranberry, coconut, kiwi, and more. It’s so bright and fruity and it’s really been picking up my spirits.

09. Tapestry. I got this piece above my bed as a gift and it’s my new favourite piece in my room. My mom and I put twinkle lights up behind it and it’s given my room such a cozy vibe. I love it. It makes me happy every single time that I see it.

img_7577

10. Riverdale. This is a show that I never thought I would like. I wasn’t sure about it when I saw the promo and then I really wasn’t sure when I first started watching it. However, I am totally sucked in. I am obsessed. It’s an awesome, awesome show. It reminds me of all the things I liked from the first seasons of Pretty Little Liars and Vampire Diaries. It’s smart and funny and thrilling and sexy and I can’t wait to see what they do next.

11. Sirius. I love having pets. I truly believe that a pet will bring so much love into your life. I, unfortunately, can’t have cats or dogs in my apartment. I would love nothing more than getting a cat but we’re not allowed. So I decided that I wanted a fish. It was still a living thing that I could love and look after and care for but I wasn’t breaking any rules. So when my best friend was going to the next town over (where the nearest pet store is) and she asked me if I wanted her to pick me up a fish, I said YES! I’ve named him Sirius and he’s the highlight of my day. I’m getting him a new tank to live in soon and I can’t wait to spoil him. He’s my baby 🙂

img_7549

12. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. I have loved John Oliver for a while and I’ve always liked this show but I recently really got into it instead of casual viewing and I’ve been obsessed. I feel like I’ve learnt something after watching one of his clips.

2017 Favourites – January

This month, I’ve been trying a few new things and I have finally gotten my hands on some products that I’ve been dying to try for ages. With Christmas gifts and a bit of extra money from holiday pay cheques, I’ve been lucky to try out some new stuff and I fell in love with most of it. I’ve also been having a few difficult months and have rediscovered a few things that have brought me great comfort. So, without further ado…here are my favourites from January!

01. Ouai Shampoo and Conditioner. I have been wanting to get a shampoo and conditioner from this company for a very, very long time. I’ve heard incredible things about it and decided that I wanted to get the recently released curl line. However, it has been constantly sold out. I finally was lucky enough to get my hands on it this month and it’s incredible. I am so in love. It makes my hair feel so soft and touchable but it doesn’t weigh it down.

02. Ouai Styling Products. If you can’t tell, I am in love with this company in general. My hair has never responded as well to a product as it has to this line and everything that I’ve used from them has been wonderful. I plan on getting full sizes of the products I’ve been using as soon as I can. I currently have the hair oil, the wave spray, the texturizing hair spray, and the finishing cream. I plan on keeping all of those in my collection as well as getting the treatment masque and the dry shampoo foam.

03. Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. Okay. I’ll admit it. I have an addiction. I am head over heels in love with this lipstick and I need to accept that. Her formula is comfortable, beautiful, and effective. I’ve been loving these lipsticks for a long time now but I’ve really been loving these nude colours this month: Ludwig, Lolita, and Lolita ||. She is putting out a few new colours in the next year and there are many that I want. The shades that I want next are as follows: Zero, Plath, Lovecraft, Double Dare, andAyesha.

04. Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara. I really didn’t know what to expect from this. I got it in a Christmas present and thought that I would give it a chance. I fell in love. It has been doing wonderful things for my lashes and I hope to buy a full size at some point in the near future.

05. Formula X Nail Set. Another Christmas present, I’ve already loved this nail polish but this little set has been such a joy to play with. I love the nude shades and I ADORE the sparkly red. I’m just full on in love and besides, this set looks so pretty on my bookshelf.

img_7520

06. Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream and Origins Ginger Body Wash. Skin care is something that I’m really trying to focus on for this year. I want to get a really solid skin care routine that helps my skin and I decided to start with an eye cream. After a stupid amount of research, I decided to get this little orange baby from Origins. I’ve never been so impressed with an eye cream. I’ve only been using it a few days but it’s already lightened my under eye circles and overall brightened my eyes.

I’ve also be loving the ginger body wash. I got this one as as Christmas present and it’s amazing. They used to make a bubble bath that I am in love with and holding onto the very last bit of it. I don’t think they make it anymore but the body wash has been a joy to use. I hope to get more of whatever they carry in their ginger line.

07. L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream. I got this as a deluxe sample from a Sephora order and can tell you that it is the best feeling cream that I have ever used. It’s so soft and luxurious. I would love to get a full size of it but it is a terribly expensive face cream and I don’t have the spare money to spend on that right now. However, I do LOVE it.

08. Sephora Sheet Masks. Nothing makes me quite as happy as spending a night to myself. I got a sample of these sheet masks for Christmas and it’s been such a joy to add them into my spa nights. It’s just relaxing and they really do help your skin.

09. Reese Big Cup Stuffed With Pieces. Stay with me here. I don’t have a huge sweet tooth and I’m quicker to reach for chips rather than chocolate. I was craving chocolate one day and decided to grab these. I had seen the ads and thought it was just a gimmick. I was wrong. These are so good and to me, it seems like there is more peanut butter in these than most. I am obsessed.

10. Earl Grey Tea. I’ve always loved Earl Grey but for a while, I had stopped drinking it. I was really loving chai teas and spicier teas for a bit. However, I recently went back to drinking Earl Grey and I don’t know why I ever stopped. It’s sweet and comforting and lovely. It just makes me feel safe. I’ve had the regular blend and the decaf blend so I can drink it throughout the entire day.

img_7527

11. Oh She Glows Everyday. Another goal I have for this year is to eat healthier. This is a vegan cookbook and while I have no plans to eat vegan, I am thinking of leaning more towards vegetarian. I don’t want to say that I am eating %100 vegetarian because I know myself. I know that if I say that I can’t have certain foods and I try to cut everything out all at once, I will go crazy. I’ll fail and then feel awful about myself and then spend a week eating junk food. I’ve also felt that I need a more vegetarian diet for my own health. I’ve been trying to focus on the idea of adding foods to my diet instead of taking away foods and it’s been making me happy. This cookbook has some wonderful recipes that I’ve been really enjoying.

12. Dodie Clark. I discovered her music this month and it’s been making me very happy. She has a wonderful voice and her lyrics are so sweet and honest. Her EP has been on repeat and I’m so looking forward to anymore music she makes in the future.

13. iPhone 7 Plus and Apple Leather Case. This really is self explainitory. Everyone my age is obsessed with their phone. I was lucky enough to finally be able to upgrade my phone to the 7 Plus and I’m loving it. My old phone was falling apart so it was time. I also treated myself to a proper case and not just the cute cheap one that really doesn’t protect your phone. The leather cases that apple makes fit the phone so perfectly and it makes it feel so protected. I’m looking at getting one of the silicone cases as well, just to switch things up.

14. Evernote. I really am behind on this one. I’ve known about Evernote for a long time and I got it once before but it didn’t really help me at all. I was only really using the notes on my phone to write out grocery lists and shit like that. This month, however, I’ve decided that I’m going to start writing again. I used to dream of writing a novel and I’m working on that again for 2017. Evernote has been a blessing in keeping all of my notes for my novel organized and clear. I also like that when I’m out and about and I get an idea, I can put it on my phone and then when I come home, it’s on my computer. Awesome, awesome app.

15. Bullet Journal and Tombow Pens. I’ve been bullet journalling for a few months now and I think that I’ve found a layout that’s been helpful to me. I’ve been really loving it and plan on keeping it up. I also finally spoiled myself and invested in some Tombow Dual Brush pens. They are INCREDIBLE and I want many more colours. I’ll likely do a blog post in the coming weeks going more in depth about my bullet journal.

So that’s it. That’s what I’ve been loving. What have you been loving this month?
