#OOTD: Hello 2018! [NYE Outfit]

Happy New Year and Happy Sunday! Hello 2018. Yes, I know, it’s already February, but I’ve been travelling, find my balance between making YouTube content, work, staying healthy, and my jewelry line. Anyways, I’m so very excited for this year. For me, 2017 was, for the most part, a dud. Yes, there were some highlights, which I’ll mention below, but I’m ready for this new … Continue reading #OOTD: Hello 2018! [NYE Outfit]

Reader’s Question: What Motivates [Me]?

ashleyHey everyone! A while ago I asked my followers and friends on social media to send in some questions or requests that they’d like to see on the blog. One was this: What motivates you? At first I was trying to figure out what I should talk about is my motivation to do a specific thing, but I realized all things require motivation, and if you’re like me, most of the things I do are tied in together somehow. So this will be about what motivates me in life. Things in my life that require motivating include anything from getting a fulfilling career, continuing to learn, school, continuing to workout and be fit, relationships, blogging, working, staying organized, and pretty much everything that requires effort and dedication in order to do well.

I have created a well thought out list of seven different things that keep me motivated to do the things I love, whether they require hard work or not. Here we go…

Why I write in my Journal! [Benefits of “Journaling”]

IMG_0234.JPGHey everyone! I hope you are all doing well today! The sun is up & it’s actually nice out in Edmonton. This past weekend I strolled into Coles, because I always love finding an interesting book to read, or beautiful notebooks, journals, or even gifts I can get for people. I came across this suede, ancient-style, gold and purple journal and just HAD to have it. I felt it looked unique, and I’ve always wanted a leather journal.

Anyways, what most people don’t know about me is that I journal (if that’s not a verb, it is now!). My whole life from when I was in second or third grade, when my parents got me a Little Mermaid journal (it was so cute), was when I started. I write my life basically day-to-day, as well as write my thoughts on things from the past (reflecting on past significant experiences), how I feel about things in my present, and my goals and dreams for my future. I try to write daily, and sometimes if I have a lot going through my mind, I’ll write more than that. I feel journals should definitely be kept secret, because it’s supposed to be a place of your own, where you can let your mind out without being judged or persuaded into thinking something else.

Lost Your Dreams Because You Entered a Relationship?

Changing JUST Because you Entered a Relationship?

This post is mainly targeted towards young men and women, maybe from the ages of 17 to 29, that aren’t quite established career-wise yet. I have a wide variety of friends, from housewife-types to entrepreneurs to teachers, etc. I love when people have ambitions and goals but I hate when all this stops immediately after they get into a relationship.

Like why?!

I’ll give you an example… Continue reading “Lost Your Dreams Because You Entered a Relationship?”
