Fall Fashion with Joe Fresh

Fall Fashion with Joe Fresh

IMG_0204

Lately I have been attending a ton more family events. My boyfriends family gets together very often, and there has been many times that Church has been involved, or a nice meal. I have had to find ways to manage frequent body temperature changes, as well as fitting the bill for presentableness.

After getting a President’s Choice Mastercard earlier this year, I have been optimizing ways to collect points. Joe Fresh has always been in my budget, but sizing tends to be an issue so its always been hit or miss. Recently though, I’ve ben hitting the mark with Joe Fresh purchases. This dress is so great I also got it in black, but it is absolutely adorable.

There is a little button closure at the back, and the cinched waist is very cute. I have since gotten a beige belt that goes with it from my mom to borrow for this outfit and it completes it.

This dress was on sale for $14.99 and I had 10% off from my first order. I also got free shipping from being a PC Insider, and plenty of bonus points for my PC Optimum. I also maximized the points earned by using my PC Mastercard.
This dress is such a soft material, and these tights I got in store at Joe Fresh for only $2.97 on clearance. They even have proper foot holes so you won’t wear them out too early by moving the feet spots around. The soft, loose fit combined with the pattern and pockets makes it a total win for me, and so now I have two.

Its also extremely modest which is something I have always felt cautious of. I have never been much of a revealing dresser, more modest overall. The length of this dress also adds to how comfortable it is.

Fruition Berry Farm – 29th Birthday

Fruition Berry Farm – 29th Birthday

fullsizeoutput_6cf

In honour of my 29th birthday last Thursday, we checked out Fruition Berry Farm, located just off the 401 & hwy 15 in Kington, ON.

A great place to take your family, spouse, or even take your friends. The farm is quite large, with lots of picking to be done. At $11 per large container, that’s quite the steal for local, fresh, in season strawberries. There is also a $1 charge if you need a basket. I got a really awesome travel tripod for my birthday from my boyfriend (he’s always supporting the blogging dream I have) we were finally able to get my first official YouTube Vlog completed.

They take debit and cash, there is also a small barbecue food stand thats serving Hot dogs, burgers, etc as well as drinks. However, there are no Gluten Free options so be sure to eat ahead of time or bring some snacks (try not to snack on the berries even though I’m guilty of it a couple times haha) and definitely stay hydrated. It was about 30 degrees with a very extreme humidity level that day so it wound up being a pretty quick trip but overall it was very fun and great to get outside exploring. Since then I have made a delicious Strawberry Vanilla cake and it was amazing.

So, with all that being said, here is my very first official Youtube Vlog! I hope you enjoy, please hit the subscribe button and leave your comments, suggestions, feedbacks, etc! I’m definitely doing a lot more vlogging this summer so stay tuned.

Natural Cycles – Non Hormonal Birth Control

Natural Cycles – Non Hormonal Birth Control

image1-2

Birth Control. We all need it, am I right? As I inch closer to 30 I have realized hormonal birth control is absolutely not for me. I already struggle with imbalanced hormones, so continuing my journey of keeping my body as organic as it can be is always on the forefront.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that almost 2 years ago I stopped hormonal birth control entirely. I switched to using the Caya Diaphraghm (female condom) and it has helped tremendously. If you’re interested in knowing more about it, checkout my Vlog HERE I have loved using Caya thus far and wouldn’t change its effectiveness at all. They last a few years at a time, and are really easy to use.

 

Further to these two methods I also ensure to use Organically based condoms. Sustain is my favourite brand, and they can be purchased from Amazon. They use all organic ingredients, which has a much lower risk of affecting your lady bits. I’ve always used Organic feminine products to ensure I don’t have any negative side effects from conventional feminine products, and condoms are most certainly included in that.

Click to order Sustain Condoms from Amazon –

Summer Florals & Boho Chic

Summer Florals & Boho Chic

Am I the only one who loves Boho Chic Florals? Not going to lie, I’ve been living for the headbands and cute floral dresses ever since I got my hair done at Organic Salon & Spa. I have been super into actually doing my hair (yay!!) and making my outfit complete from top to bottom!

This dress is incredibly soft, and super comfortable for the hot summer nights. It’s a shorter dress, but thats what makes it great for the Summer! I can wear this to any outing as its so multi-functional. Date night? Yes! Media Event? Totally. Maybe not so much walking the dog.. but you catch my drift. It’s super cute!

Available right now at Bootlegger, it’s even on sale for 50% off!! The designer is Twin Hearts, and it has all the perfect little details. Ruched, V Neck and the cute little ties on the sleeves are the perfect added touch. I am wearing size XS.

Finished off with an even cuter Jewled, Rose Gold headband and the outfit is complete! (Currently they only have Metallic in stock)

And as always, my Bella Beat Leaf tracker which I wear everywhere. It can be a bracelet, necklace, all while tracking your fitness!  ((I’ll be Blogging about this amazing device very soon!! In the meantime if you want to learn more about them, click here & you can save $25 off your BellaBeat product!)

Bella Beat Urban Leaf

So many of us love the idea of a Fitness Tracker. It helps with being accountable, it keeps us motivated, and we can even have competitions with friends. I have used Fitbit for many years, however as I got older, and getting diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, my fitness tracker needs changed drastically.

I was looking for a tracker that was a bit more durable than a Fitbit, that was waterproof, a fashion accessory, and also helps track my periods.

Since I don’t take birth control, tracking is super important for myself. That way I know where I’m at, when to expect my period, and also when to be safe.. if ya catch my drift!!

After researching I came across BellaBeat and the product is fantastic. Let me start off by saying that I purchased one about two months ago, and sadly lost it this past weekend while dancing like crazy at the Taylor Swift concert! I was sad… but the Bella Beat customer service team is fantastic and they sent me a code to purchase another one at 50% off. Not to bad, and I mean, I love the product so Its worth it at full price. I am very grateful they gave me 50% off though to replace it.

So lets start with my LOVES about the BellaBeat Urban Leaf:

1. It is the CUTEST accessory! It can be worn as a bracelet (pictured above), It can be worn as a necklace, and also it can be worn as a clip on your shirt or bra. I love its versatility. It goes with everything.
2. The period tracker portion. It’s great, it tells you when you are ovulating, when you should and shouldn’t have sex, and if you are trying to get pregnant it specifically tells you the time to try. That is an incredible feature for me!
3. It has a meditation feature – it can predict how stressed you may be, and in turn prompts you to do some meditation. This is a great thing for those of us who are new to meditating. I really got into it and making sure I mediated each day to ensure the most calm environment I could achieve.
4. They also have wireless headphones, in which I’m planning to purchase at some point ($99 USD) and they are noise cancelling, you can use them when driving to answer calls, and as well they are super cute and trendy.
5. It tracks your sleep & steps of course. Basic features in a fitness tracker but this one overall fits my needs perfectly.

I hope you find this information useful, and I’m looking forward to those of you who have tried it or want to try it! It is absolutely worth every penny. Click here to save $25 off your BellaBeat Urban Leaf

Fall Sweaters- Blush.ca

Fall Sweaters- Blush.ca

Fall has almost finally arrived. I say almost because while the calendar tells us its fall, the weather can’t seem to make up its mind!

Luckily last week when the days were a bit chillier, I was able to wear this beautiful grey knit sweater. The design is very cute, with heart shaped elbow pads. Anything with elbow pads I’m all about, as its a great little detail to the simple piece it is. Fall sweaters are great because they can be dressed up, dressed down, worn with leggings, or a skirt. The possibilities are endless in my opinion. Having a piece in your closet that is so versatile is really important because the more use you can get out of the more value it holds in terms of having the “ultimate closet”.

You can find the sweater by clicking here on Shopblush.ca

This sweater is from a local boutique called Blush. They are a Durham Region based boutique, with a great selection of curated pieces that are perfect for the most simple, yet detailed wardrobe. Each piece can be worn multiple ways, and are also budget friendly. I love supporting local businesses, so when I had the chance I jumped to purchase this beautiful fall sweater.

​Fabulously named “The Willow”, this Grey Knit Sweater is honestly super soft, very modest, but still form fitting. I really feel more comfortable in modest wear, plus who wants to be wearing short sleeves in the fall? Not me.

I jazzed it up with a great touched skirt in a darker grey colour, and some amazing black boots.  But as mentioned before can also be worn with some black or red leggings to keep it casual, or just some basic jeans and Chuck Taylor’s.

Hope you all are starting to break out your Fall wardrobe, and go shopping to update it as well. You’ll definitely want to purchase this if you are in need of a cute fall sweater!
