Alex’s Bath Buddies: It’s Just the Beginning

Have you ever had the idea that maybe you should start your own business and do your own thing? I never did until just recently and you may or may not have heard of mine that I started up just in the recent months. It was something that was completely unplanned and to be honest, just kind of happened. Alex’s Bath Buddies was born a month or so after the New Year began and am I ever

How Pretty Pink Sparkles Became a Thing

Whew, what a crazy last couple days! I finally shared Pretty Pink Sparkles with my family and friends and I feel like the world has been lifted off my shoulders. A big thank you to everyone who showed their support for PPS! It was a great feeling to finally let you all into my new, blogging world. Today I wanted to share the reasons why I started my own blog. It’s not this crazy, extravagant

Our Thankful Jar

There are so many things to be thankful for in life so why not write them down? Shaun and I started our “Thankful Jar” at the beginning of the year so we can have a good reminder of all things we’regrateful and thankful for. Starting on January 1st, 2017, Shaun and I have been writing down things that have made us appreciative. I cut up some of my scrap scrapbooking paper (because why not make it cute

Beauty & the Beast

A tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme – Beauty and the Beast. Spoiler alert; this movie was incredible and if you haven’t seen it yet, I suggest you do. Everything from the costumes, to songs, to the subtle humour, those two hours were magical. Beauty and the Beast was my favourite Disney movie growing up and watching it brought back so many feelings of happiness. Have you ever seen a movie

Beauty & the Beast, John Legend

Seeing as I went to see Beauty and the Beast the other day, I felt it was appropriate to put this song as the Song of the Month. It’s romantic and fun, and to be honest, I just love the video. I’ve been listening to this song more often than I’d like to admit lol, but here it is for your enjoyment, too! And if you haven’t read my post on why I love Beauty

April Fools

April Fools is like Christmas in my family and we’ve come such a long way from our small, in-home pranks, that people have grown to anticipate what the prank of the year will be. It’s seriously one of my favourite times of the year and definitely one of my top 3, for sure. To catch you up to speed, here’s some background info on the special day. First and foremost, as a family, we’ve set

Balance & Inner Peace – My First Time Doing Yoga

Namaste, downward dog, and the tree position was all I knew about Yoga until this past Saturday when I went to my first ever yoga class with my brother. Yoga’s something I’ve wanted to try for a while but never had the courage to go on my own for the sole reason of me being a complete and utter newbie. It dawned on me one day though, that duh, my brother does yoga religiously, why

That’s What I Like, Bruno Mars

This song! Relatively new, but I feel like it’s underrated which seems odd to me because it’s Bruno Mars and when is his stuff ever underrated? With Spring right around the corner, I feel like this song has just the right amount of feel good vibes to get us ready for warm weather and mini jam sessions with the windows down. Bruno Mars was an artist I wasn’t too crazy about when he first came

My Heart’s Always Yours, Arkells: Valentine’s Edition

I wasn’t going to post a song for today, but it’s just too much of a happy day not to! This past Friday night, Shaun and I went to the Arkells concert. SO. GOOD! They’re a Canadian band from Hamilton (what’s up neighbours!) and Shaun introduced me to their music a few years back and I’m so glad he did, their stuff is great. Over the years we’ve incorporated their music into our relationship and they have

7 Things To Do for Valentine’s Day

Do you do Valentine’s Day gifts with your partner or keep your money in your pocket because everything is seriously overpriced? Shaun and I have done a bit of both but this year (and last year I believe) we said no gifts or anything of the sort. However, although we’ve said no gifts, he’ll get me flowers and we’ll both get each other a card with something small in it. I’ve never been one of
