Below are some examples of others who have researched the cost of saying “I do”: When it comes to planning your wedding, a key component every bride should remember is this is YOUR wedding.  I recently was […]

Shopping Ban Combination Update for February & March 2019

Let’s avoid the throat clearing and get straight to the point. I have been fabulously failing at sticking to my shopping ban rules for both February and March. I feel like I am at confession and I feel rather ashamed for failing so fantastically. Where do I start? Let’s start with my kitty crazed obsession […]

Oh the Opulence at Incheon Airport…

One of the great joys of visiting an airport when traveling internationally is hitting up the duty free shops to bring back some unique snacks, alcohol and/or cool useful souvenirs.

Day 3 – Summer 2018 Mins Game

February Check In

In the bleak mid winter, February, although brief can be hard on the head.  Canadians such as myself can expect copious amounts of snow, freezing temperatures and some days you don’t see the sun.  In trying to make 2017 the year of mindfulness, thus far has been challenging.  So, it is time to hit the […]

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 […]

Blue Monday 2017

If you woke up feeling a little under the weather emotionally, you’re not alone.  Today is the third Monday of January for 2017, marking what is known as the most depressing day of the year.  I was not aware of the phenomenon until I noticed on my twitter feed a lot of posts with the […]
