Happy Saturday! I have once again returned to one of my favourite photoshoot locations, outside of an auto repair shop. I have been living in this black faux fur jacket since December and one of my favourite ways to style it is with black pants and boots. Enjoy your Sunday and make sure to take care of yourself before the start of a busy week! xx

KODO Rose Noir

Hello everyone! I hope that your first week of 2017 has been incredible! A little while ago I wrote a review on the KODO Calm Skin Soother which you can read here. Since then I have collected another KODO product! That product is Rose Noir, which is a perfume oil with the scent of black pepper and rose. We carry this scent in the clothing boutique I work at and I can honestly say that I have never smelled a scent like it. After months of obsessively smelling the Rose Noir sample at work I finally got one for myself.

I’m a huge fan of floral perfumes and I love how Rose Noir has the additional deep scent of pepper. All KODO products are locally made on Vancouver Island by a lovely woman named Reyna Goshinmon who I recently had the pleasure of meeting! Her products are 100% organic and there is not one I have tried that I haven’t instantly fallen in love with. Take a look at the KODO website by clicking here and I hope you have a beautiful Monday!

A Reflection on 2016

Happy 2017! I hope your New Year’s was fantastic! This post is being published a little later than I had originally planned but is something I still want to share. Despite the common opinion that 2016 was horrible and the tragedies that occurred, it was personally my favourite year yet. For me, 2016 was a year of personal development. After many years of struggling with my mental health and happiness, I took matters into my own hands and completely changed my mindset. I can now I say I am the happiest I have ever been. This year I worked hard and am proud with what I accomplished. I have been blogging, working at a clothing boutique, and doing an online course with Parsons and Teen Vogue while simultaneously graduating from high school and starting business school. I have met so many incredible people along the way and am very thankful for all the loved ones in my life.

I have high hopes that 2017 will be even more amazing than 2016. This year my main focus is on self care, being present, and trying new things. I celebrated this New Year’s Eve with my favourite people and started 2017 with a Polar Bear Swim! Let me know in the comments what your favourite part of 2016 was!
