Here at work absurdly early and thinking fully about self-care. Sometimes there’s not much you can do but show up and kick ass... but don’t let your needs slide. . . So tell me, how do YOU self care at work when time are tough?

33/52 - Squeezing every ounce out of summer before the fall (literally) #m4hlifein52 #lifein52
it might be a surprise to learn i didn't like coffee until long past my undergrad days. the smell seemed bitter, the taste just far enough away from my young tastebuds to ellicit a reaction, but oh boy did i love coffee shops. . . even to this day [ now a firm lover of all things coffee ], it's often the coffee shop itself that gets me excited at first. so many things have been experienced in these spaces; from those writing novels, conducting business deals, or simply sharing a warm drink with a loved one. . . i don't presume my love for coffee will end anytime soon, but its the love of the coffee shop that truly is the strongest.
Woof! Time for an official introduction! 🐾 This is Lenny (aka Lennon 🎸), our newest, furry family member. Lenny was born almost 11 weeks ago near Jasper, Alberta. He is a standard sized sheepadoodle, a crossbreed between a poodle and an old english sheepdog, and will grow to be one big ‘dood’. So far, he’s been a really great pup, and the kids are totally in love and slowly learning how to deal with all those puppy nips! 😬🖤 We are so glad that our fluffy boy has finally joined our family. I know many people said I was nuts for adding a pet to the preexisting chaos of our home, but I honestly don’t see it like that. All I see are memories and all the love and happiness that dogs bring to a family unit. So, here we are, embracing the ‘crazy’ and making the most out of this life, one pee on the hardwood floor at a time. 🐶🤪
Hello beautiful friends, • You may be wondering where the heck I've been and to be honest, I was wondering the same. It’s been quite some time since I felt like my normal, healthy, vibrant self. For well over a month we've been trying to figure out what's going on in my body and finally I was diagnosed with a form of Sarcoidosis called Löfgren's Syndrome in early July. This news came as a shock because I've always been healthy. I’d never had a serious illness and have intentionally fueled my body by living an active, whole foods lifestyle. I’ve aspired to be the voice of inspiration for others to be their healthiest, most confident selves and I suppose growth comes with challenge and that’s the gift in all this. • So what is Löfgren’s Syndrome? Inflammation, throughout the entire body. Doctors believe it’s auto-immune related and since those run rampant in my family I’m genetically at risk for one myself. But really, they don’t know why previously healthy humans from age 20 to 40 get Löfgren’s. • First, my chest felt heavy and I was short of breath —later I’d find out this was due to swollen lymph nodes on my lungs. • Secondly by knees would barely bend. They hurt BIG time and had started completely out of the blue. (Hello 100 year old self 👋🏻). Then my ankle blew up. I couldn’t walk properly and for the first time in my life I used a cane to get around. Later I’d find out this was severe arthritis that would spread to different parts of my body including my wrists. • Thirdly, red spots would show up on my shins. Hard, hugely sensitive spots that now look like bruises after damaging the skin. Later I’d learn these spots are called Erythema Nodosum, a fancy title for inflammation in the subcutaneous tissue of the skin. • I’ll be sharing more as this journey unfolds. Perspective changes drastically when suddenly our bodies are in physical turmoil and I’ve since realized my health is the single most important thing I have so let the journey of healing begin. • Thanks for being here! 💕
With this man by my side and our bundle of joy well on her way, #35 is off to a great start and I have no doubt that it will be the best year yet! Felt so much love from friends and family today.

🌹 When your husband buys you flowers before leaving on a business trip, and it goes a little something like this... • “Thank you baby! You shouldn’t have! This is such a nice surprise! What do you mean I mention flowers all the time? What do you mean I make references to roses every Monday during @bachelorabc ? Why did you get me flowers anyway? Why didn’t you just get me chocolate? I think your airplane is ready to board.” 😂 And here I thought my hints were subtle 🤷‍♀️. They may not be roses but Monday nights I’m a sucker for a little @bachelorinparadise dramz! #canthelpit 🌹 . . .
Going places.✌🏼 . Shifting gears this week from play hard to work hard. . Have a look see over at @mi.na_styletwins for highlights coming of our event later this week! 💕

Porridge can be a satisfying breakfast and in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) it is warming + nourishing to our digestive organs (the TCM organs of digestion like warm, cooked, easy to digest food over cold and raw foods which are harder to digest). . While oatmeal can make a good porridge and oats have plenty of soluble fibre to help lower cholesterol, it is good to switch up your grains. Quinoa porridge can up your protein intake at breakfast - a win over oats which has more carbohydrates and less protein. Here I have cooked my quinoa in water and unsweetened almond milk and cinnamon. Topped it off with blueberries, bananas, and a natural nut and seed butter available at @costco #porridge #digestion #nutrition #drshahnd #suhanisjikoni #yycliving #yyc #calgary #calgarylife #yycblogger #yyz #the6ix #yvr #yychealth #quinoa #dairyfree #vegetarian #vegan #protein #breakfasts #downtowncalgary

A proud Albertan. I'm sure you all know it, but just in case you do not yet, if you're living in a province that has a lower tax rate and visiting a city that has a higher one, you may still get the former by asking your Sales Associate about it. They are more than willing to do it for you. They would need to ship the item to your home address and you would just pay the item upfront. Normally, most stores offer free shipping, otherwise a flat rate fee is in place. Still, you will save a few hundred bucks. Only if you are willing to walk out the store and bring home nothing. In my case, I ended up having something still. Who would have thought I would walk out the store with a full bottle of champagne from @veuveclicquot to enjoy and a full size L'envol de Cartier Eau de Parfum as a complimentary. The lady who helped me and the manager were equally lovely and accommodating. I highly recommend shopping at Cartier Vancouver on Howe St. The service was immaculate and beyond expected.

Fresh Take // @officialedojapan has a new restaurant concept, Fresh Take. I went to check it out and grab a Chicken Chop Chop bowl + Strawberry Hibiscus Craft Soda. Cooper and I enjoyed it while enjoying the sun.

♡ I am completely lost without you and honestly, I can hardly remember how I even survived before I had you as my constant companion. You teach me, you guide me, you make me laugh. And best of all, when I’m reflected in you, I’m more beautiful than I’ve ever been (thanks, Insta filters!) Anyway, cell phone, I love you more than many real people 😶 It might be getting a little weird to my family, but what can I say? I’m starting to notice bruises on my legs from running into things while my face is buried in your comforting blue glow…What was life even LIKE before our cell phones? #insta #ageoftechnology

Ever have trouble choosing the right colour combos? When in doubt, blue and grey is the safest route. You can NEVER go wrong when pairing these two together!

LOOK what came from our garden!! 🍓🌶 ⠀⠀⠀ Our very FIRST bell pepper! 😍Business in so many ways is like harvesting: The patience to wait for your idea to bloom. To not lose hope when bugs, birds, or animals eat or steal your crops. To harvest something FINALLY after all the time you took to care for it and make something come to fruition! And being accepting that what you put in doesn't always yield the exact results you wanted. 🤷🏻‍♀️ ⠀⠀⠀ Business is definitely a 🌿lifestyle! And if you want to hear more about it or chat about the journey, I'm coming to Vancouver and would love to meet you! 💛 ⠀⠀⠀ DM me for deets, boss ladies! ✨🌿 . . . . . . . . #mondaymotivation #womenempoweringwomen #communityovercompetition #risingtidesociety #bossup #socialcurator #bosschicks #byob #beyourbrand #beyourownboss #goaldigger #glitterguide #thatsdarling #homegrown #yvrbusiness #womeninbusiness #savvybusinessowner #youbelong #bellpeppers #yvrgraphicdesigner #yvrbranding #yycbranding #yycblogger #yycgraphicdesigner #businesslife #businesslifestyle #siamesecat #firsts ⠀⠀⠀
