    Wanda’s Shortbread Cookies

    I love to cook and bake! It’s like my little hobby and sadly my ass can testify on that. I was once at a baby shower for one of my relatives at that time I could care less about babies. If I recall my mom dragged me to the shower because that’s just what family does, we’re there for each other no matter how boring it is. On the plus side, one of our close family friends was there. Her name was Wanda and let me tell you she can bake! She makes the best short bread cookies and once she gave us the recipe I was so excited to try…

    Crayon Melting Art

    Let’s be honest if I’m not on Instagram then you can find me going through Pinterest. I love to get inspiration and recipes from Pinterest. So You will have to bare with me as I try out a bunch of different DIYs and hacks on this blog. So this week I decided to do the colorful crayon melting art. Here is what you’ll need: Hot glue gun or Gorilla glue Crayons – I used 2 packs of 64 to fit on my canvass ( and I only used the pretty colors) Canvass – Michael’s usually has a huge pack for $16 bucks or you can even find them at the…

    Don’t Forget About Yourself

    We all have those days when everything seems to be going wrong. When we feel sad, stressed out, and angry. Today seemed to be one of those days for me. Not only did my baby throw my phone in her pool today, she also managed to ruin my new $70 shirt, and pretty much punch me in the face. Now this may seem like no big deal to some, but to me it felt like that episode of keeping up with the Kardashian when Kim is thrown into the water and loses her diamond earrings type of dramatic. Now after calmly using my grumpy mommy voice and telling my toddler that throwing mommy’s phone in her…

    Playdough DIY

      I’ve been wanting to try this recipe out for so long and I finally got to do it. Before my baby was too little, I know she would have just put it in her mouth and tried to eat it. Though the recipe is completely edible and toddler friendly, it wouldn’t have been as much fun. Now we can make shapes, practice our colors, and letters. Play dough is a great way to keep your kids entertained, even my 17 month old baby girl ends up playing with it for 30 minutes. For my super active 17 month old that was a long time and it also gave me…

    When Privacy Goes Out the Window

    Do you remember the last time you went to the bathroom by yourself ? What about the last time you took a shower without interruptions? When I think about it, it was approximately 17 months ago. I don’t even remember what privacy even means but that’s okay. Motherhood comes with sacrifices and this is just one of them. When I think about it, if my little one didn’t accompany me to the bathroom or want to take showers with me she really wouldn’t learn the basic things that one needs to survive in life. She now knows what to do with toilet paper, where it goes, she knows how to flush…

    Find beauty

    My motto lately has been find beauty were ever you go! I love to travel and go off the beaten path to find that great picture. I’ve had the privilege of visiting many countries so far in my life but one that will always have my heart is Canada. I’ve driven across Canada and I can say that most of is empty but that’s what makes it so great. You can find the best views anywhere you go. I’ve always been a city girl but somehow the country has stolen my heart. I never thought I be the one wanting to live out in the country but somehow I cant picture…

    Morning Sickness – Silent Killer

    During my pregnancy I was that lucky one that once my morning sickness started it never really went away. I dealt with morning sickness pretty much through my whole pregnancy. It would come and go throughout my pregnancy. Yes it was terrible and uncomfortable. Now morning sickness doesn’t just happen in the mornings, it can happen at anytime of the day. I remember I was at the mall  just walking along doing some baby shopping. A lady walked by me with strongest perfume scent I have ever smelt and right then and there I ended up throwing up. It was so embarrassing and it all happened so quick I had no time…

    Lets Lift Each Other up Instead of Tearing Each Other Down

    We live in a generation where most parents both work. Gone are the days when all the women stayed home and weren’t given the opportunity to get a better education or to have their own job. Now living in 2016 in one of the bigger cities in Canada we noticed that most people work for a living. There are only a few stay at home moms these days. So why is it that some women out there feel the need to put a target on a working mom. What is wrong with wanting to better your life not just for yourself but for your kids? Are we suppose to be attached to a…

    Inexpensive Homemade Facial Scrub

    You know those days when your waking around feeling like a zombie, you look in the mirror and your skin looks dull, tired and worn out. Basically my life in a sentence. I know there are lots of products out there to help with that but being a young mom it’s not reasonable or smart for me to go and spend a bunch of money on products that may or maybe not work. Don’t get me wrong I have my fair amount of skin care products and I do like to splurge once in a while and spend the money on those luxury products. One thing I like to do…

    Trying to Overcome the Young Mom Stereotype …..

    No matter if my pregnancy was planned or not, sitting on the bathroom floor with the pregnancy test in my hand I never expected to see those 2 little pink lines. I had just turned 19 in June, and now a month later my life would completely change. I would no longer be a fun 19 year old going out with her friends, going to the beach and having a couple drinks while sitting their laughing at the silliest things. I no longer would be at the clubs on a Friday night, I would no longer make it past 10 pm on a Friday night. Life all of a sudden…
