Lipstick Worth Loving

This may very well be the best lipstick I've ever purchased. 

With sleek packaging and high pigmentation, ColourPop's Lippie Stix are a game changer.

They go on smoothly, feel just like lip balm and last for hours. 

Not to mention - it's not tested on animals! 

At $5 a piece, you really can't go wrong. 

Cleaning Up After Christmas

Seerlee Archer14 Comments

Getting rid of the old, In with the new. 

Laundry, laundry and more laundry. 

Striping the guest bed. 

Opening remaining gifts.

Admiring gifts that got looked over in the hustle and bustle. 

Raiding your refrigerator of leftovers. 

Eating all the cookies or tossing out all the cookies. 

Turning in hot chocolate for green tea and green smoothies. 

Making "late" 2015 resolutions. 

Hitting the gym.

Back to work. 

Back to routine. 

Cleaning up after Christmas looks different for everyone. 

The holidays have this new beginning effect similar to September. 

Which is good. 

Sometimes we need a little push to believe that a new beginning is even possible. 

But if there's anything I've learned this year. 

There isn't an instant resolution that will fix all of your problems, and heal all of your brokenness. 

All you can do is keep breathing. 

And that's not suppose to sound hopeless. 

Maybe learning that there is no quick definite resolution - is a resolution in itself. 

Maybe the resolution is life. 

Maybe we make goals. 

And maybe we even achieve them. 

But maybe we count the very simple act of breathing as success too. 

So however you choose to clean up after Christmas, wether with big resolutions, or no resolutions at all, just know that so long as you're still breathing, you're off to a great year. 

 

 

 

 

Hot and Cold

Kind of funny how I'm bundled up for winter and still in a crop top! Normally I'm all about layers, but this year the weather has been so mild here in Toronto. We didn't even have snow for Christmas! With that in mind I risked the cold and sported a crop top. This was the perfect outfit for a day in the city!

Holiday Dreams + Burgers with my Bestie

Seerlee Archer2 Comments

After spending the holidays away, I'm finally back in Toronto and reunited with my friends. 

I had the best day catching up over burgers and milkshakes at Johnny Rockets with my bestie, Shanice. (Shanice writes over at  helloimshanice.com)

To conclude the day, I finally got to go skating at Nathan Phillips Square! It's been a dream of mine for quite some time! And best of all I got to do it with people I love most. 

It's so important to make time for your family and friends. 

Hope you all are enjoying the rest of your holidays and spending it with loved ones. 

At the end of the day, gifts and presents don't last - people do.
