Plastics

For the past 15 years the term “Global Warming” or “Climate Change” has been used a lot. Some people say is happening, others say is fear mongering.  I’m not here to debate whether is real or not. What I want to do is to be more conscious about my daily choices and how they affect other beings. Growing up, I was introduced to the importance of preserving the ecosystem and learned some things that I could do to help the environment as well as people. Even after that, it wasn’t until the year 2011 when I started to recycle, throw food scraps in the waste and garbage in the garbage bin. I still don’t do enough, but I have pick up some habits to reduce the amount of garbage we produce. I love to use straws, so what I do is reuse straws. I wash them with soap and water, air dry it and put them in a container so they don’t get damaged. Yes, In Ontario, Canada we use bagged milk, the amount of single use plastic in the package is embarrassing. As a family we have cut back on the consumption of cow milk. At the grocery store we found bottled organic milk. The milk is expensive, for 1 litre we pay $6.00 CAD plus tax. There are 7 of us, that means we would need 2 bottles a day of milk. We like to bake a lot […]

Spa time…

As a mom of 5 kids… I barely get time to sleep… so thinking about or having some “me time” is not a priority. In a perfect world… I would get my hair cut, wash and blow dry every couple of months, I would go to the nail salon twice a month and keep my nails long. But I don’t live in a perfect world but one full of little kids and adult dilemmas. Today, I had a doctor’s appointment. Hubby took care of the triplets and I didn’t have to pick up the older 2 kids for 4 hours. I decided to get my nails done… It felt amazing, I was able to relax and do something just for me. As a mother and woman is easy to just not do some things because there is always something more important. Someone always needs you and your image takes a back sit. I know this doesn’t happen to every women of mother but it has happened to me. At this moment my appearance is not as important. Hubby asks me at least once a month if I need some alone time… I usually say no. I’ve become so immerse in being a mom, wife and full time student that other things just don’t matter. Once in a while I need to step out of my routine and take care of myself. With everything that is going on in my life… […]

Closet

Oh, my closet …. the space where no trend is followed anymore. In my teen and early 20’s I spent quite a bit of time roaming the racks of Forever 21, Urban Planet and Stitches (Canadian stores). I bought a lot of junk, usually would not even try the clothes in the store because I was to lazy. Some clothes […]

Art

In the summer months I took an art class. I learned about the cave paintings in Altamira to Pop Art all the way to the 90’s it was intense but interesting. I have never put a painting on the wall of any of the places I’ve lived…but I think it’s time to change that. On Friday I went to the […]

Rise and Shine

Waking up before sun rise… I wonder how many people can actually do it on a daily basis? I can’t, my best sleep is some time between 10 p.m. and 9 a.m. for at least 8 hours…. but I’m a mom of 5 kids under 8 so yeah that’s not happening any time soon. I would like to wake up […]
