I love stationery. Whether it is pens, coloured markers, notebooks or washi tape, I can easily say that I am stationery obsessed. Though, with the popularity of the stationery market these days, how can you blame me? There are so many choices to make when it comes to starting or adding to your stationery supplies and collections – infinite colours and sizes and qualities that it all starts to swirl into a rainbow mess of creative equipment. My point is that there is stationery available for any situation that you could think of, and with this being said, it can be pretty easy to get overwhelmed by it all and decide to stick to that one black pen. Even though it is tempting to just say no to everything or walk out with your credit card balance dangerously far into the red zone, there are actually only a few essentials that can get you through almost anything. So, if you’re like me and need help stopping yourself from buying everything (or you just don’t know where to start because there are too many choices), then keep reading to see my list of stationery must-haves.
We all lead busy lives – be it work or school we can all get swept up in getting things done that sometimes we just need to take some time to relax. One of the best ways to relax, at least in my opinion, is just to put on something comfy, grab some popcorn or a hot drink and watch a movie. Movies are a great way to relax because they allow you to be comfortable and not focus on anything work related – all you have to do is eat your snack and get swept away by the story on the screen. That being said, sometimes it can be tough to get to your movie night because you are stuck picking a movie. There are thousands of movies out there in different genres, and sometimes that magnitude of choice is just overwhelming. If you find that you aren’t feeling up to spending time searching your movie collection or pouring through streaming sites, here are some awesome movies that you can watch (so that you don’t have to waste your chill time finding a movie – you can just go right ahead and start)
Sometimes it can be quite challenging to stay true to yourself. There are so many…
Laughing. Laughing is probably one of the most enjoyable things to do no matter who you are. It gives us a happy feeling and allows us to loosen up and feel lighter, but are there actually benefits to laughing? Tomorrow is the non-official holiday Moment of Laughter Day, so in honour of this holiday that should be made official, I would like to share with you all why laughing is so awesome and how you can do more of it (because let’s face it, we should be laughing more)
Life is full of ups and downs. I’d hope that most of us get lots of ups – where things are going your way, and you are riding the waves of the world like a pro. However, this is my sunshine and rainbows attitude without the reality filter. When that filter comes on though, you see that life isn’t always so awesome. Sometimes, you hit a rough patch, and it can mess with your momentum. You lose motivation to keep trying, and the thought of perseverance isn’t an option. You can’t let that happen though. Even though perseverance can seem incredibly hard, it only makes you tougher and stronger for next time the unkind part of life tries to knock you down. Recently, I hit my own rough patch. I started to think that I should just give up. My mom, however, spoke to me and helped me remember that it doesn’t matter how many times you fall, all that matters is that you get back up again. So if you are also trying to persevere through something challenging, here are some tips to help you with it!

You know the saying that “every bird has to leave the nest”?

I’m sure that they felt scared and nervous about it and maybe even had doubts that they would manage. Well, that right there is the feeling we get when we leave home for the first time. If you are looking for tips for leaving home then you have come to the right place. Keep reading and join me on my own journey of leaving home.
There are so many reasons why people diet. It might be to get that summer body in time for vacation or just to lose some weight. Whatever it is, we all have our reasons. The only problem is that dieting is not meant to be a lifetime change – it is intended to be something that we do for a few months, and then once we achieve our goal we go back to our regular nutrition habits. That is the trap! There is nothing wrong with dieting, but the problem comes in when we are starving ourselves and end up falling for our cravings. Or even worse – picking up all the weight we have lost just because we went back to our old eating habits. There is nothing more heartbreaking than this so today it is time to put a stop to it. It is time to stop dieting and start deciding. Deciding what you may ask? Deciding to choose an option that is easier for you and will give you the best results you could hope for.
