What if you wake up some day, and you’re 65… and you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life?

♡ Ginger, Turmeric, Green Tea ♡

One my favorite things to do is relax with a warm cup of herbal tea... I have to have my cups of tea before bed or it just doesn't feel right. It's like a warm hug in your soul haha. Usually, I like to make my own blends usually mixing green tea with other teas, such as mint, other flavoured teas such as lemon or more exotic ones like mango or passion fruit.

Anyways, I discovered a new tea that I absolutely love, not to mention is super healthy for you and inexpensive... At my local Bulk Barn I stumbled across this loose tea- a Ginger, Turmeric and Green tea all blended together to make a subtle soothing taste.

Some brief benefits of the tea: Ginger is an anti-inflammatory- can reduce arthritis symptoms, Turmeric has antioxidant & anti-bacterial properties & green tea also has antioxidant benefits as well as stimulating brain functions...These are just a few of the plethora of health benefits these ingredients have.

It's perfect for the cold Canadian winters and flu prevention. The best part is you can buy it in bulk to keep you stocked up!

☺Happy Songs! ☺

So...of course once again i've been MIA for a bit on the blog...I'm finally done the semester and have officially started winter break! The weather is getting colder, lack of sleep because of exams and just studying in general can definitely put you in a crummy mood. I've compiled some bumpin happy songs that are always on repeat to lighten my mood. There's no particular theme, they're all just kind of random ranging from different decades, genres and regions.


Coucou- Djando Reinhardt et Josette Dayde

Pata Pata - Mirian Makeba

Pressure Drop - Toots and the Maytals
Aline - Elle et Moi
Are You That Somebody - Aaliyah

Yogi tea wisdom

Self-reliance is the greatest art. 

I couldn't have needed this reassurance more... Thanks tea haha! At the end of the day you're the only one you can depend on.. There's no point in listening to the doubts in your head. Just make it happen. That is all. 

Hope you have a fabulous Saturday xoxo

Pumpkin Farm Visit!

On Thanksgiving weekend I had done something I hadn't done in years...Go to the pumpkin farm to get a pumpkin! It was such a nice day to look around the farm store, get some freshly baked pies and I bought some cute gourds for fall decor around the house...I plan to do a DIY on them. Stay tuned...

Here are some pictures...Thanks for visiting my blog :)

Toronto Vintage Crawl '14

Yo dudes and dudettes! So...I apologize I initally meant to post at least once a week but then school and life kind of got cray cray. In the meantime I did get to do some cool things like going to Toronto Vintage Crawl!

Vintage Crawl is an event that happens I think twice a year (well at least I'm hoping..) in Toronto. Vintage stores across the city open after hours until midnight. Some promotions go on and most of the stores I went into had some coool thangz happening. For example, some were handing out drinks, drankz(alcoholic beverages) and snacks to customers. One store even had a dj, t'was très bumpin. 

Anywhoo... Me and my two friends went not really having any idea how it would go, but it was awesome. It basically combined two of my fav things drinking and shopping haha. Although I didn't buy as much as I planned the purchases I did get were still coool- a vintage anklet from India and some incense. It was kind of a last minute decision to go, but I think next time I'll map out what areas and stores I want to visit, because man did we do a lot of walking. 

Remember to support your local business and buy vintage/used if you can...You'll own a unique piece no one else will have and one less item sent to the landfill!
