Valentine’s Printable for Kids

Valentine’s Printable for Kids

Hey guys! I feel bad that I haven’t been very active on the blog, I’ve been busy brainstorming for our content for 2019. This year I want to focus on quality vs quantity and give my readers as much value as possible!

If you have been following for a while, you probably know that Saint Valentines it’s my favourite holiday, as it happens to be my Birthday! Before you say: “ah it must suck to be born on saint valentines”, I actually love it as I always receive extra love LOL!

Even tho I try to make that day all about me, I really like my kids to celebrate holidays, so if you have nothing plan for yours, I got you covered!

Here is a little printable for you! This cute placemat has a game on it called “I love you game” where kids can write or draw everything they love (I totally got the idea from peppa’s pig book).

Another thing you can do with them is to write the things YOU love about them and read it during lunch time. I didn’t do the whole set up thing for the pics, but I imagine putting some heart pancakes and chocolates on the side.

I made these printable for all the busy mom’s that run-on last-minute idea like me! If you are a full time working mom like me, you can print it at your work and set up a “Valentines” table for them at dinner time! Pds: This printable size is 9 x 11 like the ones you find at restaurants.

Hope you guys like it! Let me know if you use it!

How to Pamper yourself​ this Fall

How to Pamper yourself​ this Fall

“Self-care means, giving yourself permission to pause”

 

As most of you know, I don’t take as much “me time” as I would like to. Between my full-time job, trying to run my own business, kids, etc. It feels that I never have enough hours on the day (or I don’t make it).

One of the top reasons why I love living in Vancouver, it is that we get to truly enjoy every season. Fall it’s one of my favourite ones because the weather it’s not hot or cold, it’s just perfect. Love the magic of pumpkin everything and the fun of Halloween. I think it is the perfect season to slow down and do some self-care, physically and mentally.

Believe me, you don’t have to go and pay that super expensive massage at the Fairmont to effectively treat yourself, here are some tips that I’ve been doing and love it.

Dermaplanning

I read about this treatment at Jillian Harris and I was so curious about it! So, when my friend Crystal from the beauty perfectionist reach out to me to see If I wanted to give it a try, I said YES! It’s so pain-free and my face looks so clean and flawless afterwards!

Diffuser/Candles

You know how obsessed I’m with these! I absolutely love my diffuser from Finlandia health, as I think it goes in every space of my house! My favourite essentials oils are lavender and clary sage!

Pizza and Series

Yes, a little indulges hasn’t hurt anybody. Little Ceasars it’s our to go to when it comes to a nice takeout. Now, talking about series, I’ve been watching “this is us” and I’m obsessed about it. What I think I like the most about these series, is that every episode leaves you with a great life message. If you want to give it a try, make yourself a favour and get some Kleenex because you are going to need them lol!

Music and exercise

I’m super into Spotify and morning run lately! I seriously get lost in the music and I feel perfect afterwards! I know maybe this won’t sound like pampering for some of you, but for some of us that we do not have lots of times for exercise and truly enjoy it, it does feel like a break of cleaning/kids lol!

What’s your favourite way to pamper yourself? Leave me a comment!
