Sometimes my daughter helps me with my blog pictures (if she’s around when I take them), and when I’m done she likes to take pictures of her toys. The camera is touchscreen enabled so I set it up and she touches the screen when ready. Here’s one of her pictures. 😸
I can never leave home without sunscreen the moment I know what can sun do to my skin. And so I’ve tried many of sun protection, both chemical and physical sunscreen to find what’s best for me.
At the end I’m comfortable to say that we should go with something that our skin comfortable with, because that’s what will make us willing to commit to use it in daily basis. Like this @neutrogenacanada
Hydro Boost water gel sunscreen SPF 50 which easily spreaded all over my face and turns into a sheer layer of protection.

One thing about me is that I only started cooking since being on mat leave, that means for 6.5 years it was my darling husband doing all the meals... Maybe 3 times a year did I actually cook (and that’s probably being generous) I’ve come a long way in the last 10 1/2 months.... Do I enjoy it? Absolutely not! Does it taste horrible sometimes? Heck yes! Does Matt always tell me it is good, even if he’s telling a small fib? Yup! But tonight’s meal ... Lemon thyme goat cheese stuffed chicken was delicious 👌🏻— but I mean when is goat cheese NOT delicious!
All you need is love and double chocolate cookie ice cream sandwiches! Not a tall order AT ALL. Easy to make and so satisfying.
1/2 cup @stfrancisherbfarm
1/2 cup @wholesomesweet
1/2 cup organic cane sugar
1 large organic free range egg
1 tsp @simplyorganicfoods
2 tbsp almond milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup @caminoamigos
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
100g vegan dark chocolate (I use @caminoamigos
), finely chopped
1. In a large bowl, cream together the coconut oil and sugar. Add the egg, vanilla, and almond milk and mix again.
2. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, baking soda, and sea salt.
3. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until the mixture starts to come together into a dough (you might want to get your hands involved to help it along.
4. Once the dough has come together, divide into twelve to fifteen balls and place on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet.
4. Bake at 350 F for 12 minutes, or until the cookies have spread out and flattened.
5. Cool on pan before moving onto a cooling rack.
For ice cream sandwiches, place cookies in the freezer to firm up for about ten minutes. Allow ice cream to soften for a few minutes. Place a scoop of ice cream onto the bottom of a cookie and place a second one on top to create a sandwich! My ice cream of choice is @coconutbliss

I hope all the fashion/lifestyle bloggers in Ottawa have done their due diligence and taken photos of themselves at @asianalley.
This place is nuts, and you couldn't even imagine it from the outside. (It's next to the @thecupcakeloungeottawa
and my eyes usually slide past it.) The mural, created by a local artist, is an immediate eye-catcher. But then you notice other crazy details, like the graffitied chairs and the most bananas detail -- the floor, which has been tiled entirely with Canadian pennies! Apparently the owner researched the cost of tiling the floor and decided that using pennies was the same price so he bought a bunch off Amazon! I had a bun cha ca, mostly because Obama once had bun cha with Anthony Bourdain.

To my sweet baby boy, to my “could have been” and to “the one I lost”... thank you for making me a Mum! Today is so incredibly special but also so bittersweet. 💕 To the women I love and hold so close, who may have wanted to skip passed this post. Know I see you! Know my heart aches for you. Know that you are not alone. You are not “less than” anyone else on this day! I have not and will not stop believing in your miracle that IS coming!
39 weeks in, 39 weeks out (swipe left 👈🏻) ... How has this little man been on the outside for as long as he was inside?!... He has 1.5 teeth! Loves to kiss and hug. Finds the weirdest things funny and is already showing a goofy personality, like his dad naturally 🤷🏻♀️... he likes to stand and is trying to walk already, but still hates tummy time and doesn’t want to learn to crawl...He fills our house with an unexplainable joy that some days I feel as though I’m living a dream. Little man we love you so much and so thankful every day that you’re here!

Why am I so pale? Why do I wear so much sunscreen? Let me tell you... beyond my profession of caring if I age well or not (in case you didn’t know that tan isn’t a healthy glow, it’s damaged skin cells 😬).. my Mum SURVIVED melanoma skin cancer 🙌🏻!! They call melanoma the “silent killer” because most times it goes unnoticed as a small mole or mark, and if you’re not regularly checking yourself, one day that mole can cost you your life... May is Melanoma Awareness month.... today is going to be 22 degrees... Wear your sunscreen! Check yourself! And stop saying that your burn “will turn in to a tan”!!
I tried a few products from @thebodyshop
’s Spa of the World collection. Full details are in the blog, link in bio.
“For this child I prayed, and the LORD has granted me my request which I asked of Him.”
1 SAMUEL 1:27 AMP - my first necklace told the story of my loses, the clear stone for my blighted ovum miscarriage and the pearl for my second miscarriage... but now this necklace also holds a symbol of life, hope and God’s promise. The little blue stone is for Ezekiel, our sweet boy... our rainbow baby. - I pray if you’re reading this and you’re still waiting, know your promise is coming and God hasn’t forgotten about you! I pray you find peace in the storm and hope in all that He has coming for you 💕🌈 (thank you @rachelle.isms
for this beautiful piece! It’s everything I wanted!)

Lovely pit stop at @hbbrewingco
soft launch. This #stout
junkie was delighted with her smooth brew stout- pitch black and not too molasses-ey- just how I love it. The mister was pleased with his balanced IPA. Great pit stop if you're in Ingleside #microbrews
“I sometimes wonder if Jesus came to my house in the physical form, would I be as busy as Martha? Tirelessly preparing “perfection”?”......Busy wife, busy Mum, busy in your career, busy in ministry, busy with stress? ... just busy? I am too... but I’m learning to rest at Jesus feet! — what do you do to rest? 👇🏻(check out my new blog, link in Bio)
