Ending 2017 with Intention

I must give credit where credit is due so I want to share what blogger and author Cait Flanders https://caitflanders.com/ shared with her readers from Daisy for “No Sidebar” https://nosidebar.com/intentionally/ , which is ten questions I have copied below to end the 2017 intentionally. I encourage all of you to visit the URL I pasted […]

Week Two – Down Two

I completed my second week of Weight Watchers and I am down an additional two pounds which takes me to a grand total of 4.8 lbs.  I can see the numbers going down on the scale, but my clothing doesn’t feel loose yet; this could be because some of my threads were becoming pretty tight, […]

Here We Go Again…

I have had an on and off again relationship with Weight Watchers for almost a decade. Some may ask why I keep coming back and the answer is simple “It Works!” It works when you follow the plan and you do what you are supposed to do, and “It Really Works” when you don’t go […]

“The True Cost” of Fashion

Yesterday life as I knew it changed for me.  I watched a documentary called “The True Cost” which is on Netflix in Canada right now.  The Director, Andrew Morgan, forewarned me in the film that by watching “The True Cost” it may change me, mostly my ideas on how I shop, where I shop, why […]

That Dreaded Question “Why are You Single?”

Why are you single has to be one of the most ridiculous questions someone can ask a single person.  There was a time when I started to reply with a variety of answers to show the absurdity of the question itself.  My number one answer was “because I have a personality disorder” and when I […]

Dating After 30…

Dating after 30 is like shopping for clothes in a second hand shop.  Everything has been worn to varying degrees; some items are damaged and need repair.  Some pieces are beyond repair and shouldn’t be touched.   Yet, every now and then you find that shirt which is the perfect fit, your style, and is […]

Men Are Simple – Women Are Not 

Before a bunch of dudes get their boxers in a knot, this isn’t a blog about dissing your gender or emasculating men.   Today what I am talking about specifically is the world of dating between men and women.  How men will say or do one thing and how women try to “interpret” or “mind […]

Why I am Pursuing a Life of Less 

I began my minimalist lifestyle journey in August 2015 as I had moved into a smaller space; I no longer had the storage space for all of my stuff. I played the #minsgame before moving out to help with reducing the amount of stuff I would need to move, but it became very apparent to […]

Hey Trump! WWJD?

I am not a political person, I am not up to date on all the political happenings of the world, but I know the difference between right and wrong. I am hoping this blog can be one of encouragement and possibly open some closed eyes to the truth & graveness of this travel ban which […]

Prepping for a Successful Shopping Ban

I am a firm believer in the old adage “if at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”, most especially if it is something you aspire to be or acquire.   I have tried the “Shopping Ban” a couple of times, and I have failed, and perhaps I just wasn’t ready. I was a self proclaimed […]
