First things first, we need to talk about how much we loved reading all of your comments about the #standout women in your life. I've always been a believer in the "outcome" (i.e. winning a gift card) as the bi-product of what you really gain by doing something and it's pretty clear that this was an example. The reality is we all have women who #standout to us - whether it be through their actions, words or spirit. They are our cheerleaders, our supporters, our mentors, our sisters, our friends - our everything. I feel so thankful to be working with a brand who believes in this - and believes in women who #standout . If there was any take-away from this is that we probably need to take a few more moments in our day to celebrate these women and tell them how we really feel about them (with or without a contest attached 😉). Many thanks to everyone who entered the contest! We want to congratulate @natalievana on being our winner of a $150 @ninewestcanada gift card for both you and a friend! || #womenwhostandout#womensupportingwomen#authenticityatitsfinest
When I signed up to buy my kit, I got WAY more than just oils. I gained a community. A community of women who educated, motivated and cheered me on every step of the way. We have fearless leaders who want to see you succeed and will walk by you side every step of the way! The Gypsy Generation team offers exclusive classes, training and support so that you feel comfortable using your oils.
Not only did I gain friends within the Gypsy Generation, but the Young Living community as a whole is amazing. We are all team YL working together to seek purpose, wellness and abundance!
"I have seen something further under the sun, that the swift do not always win the race, nor do the mighty win the battle, nor do the wise always have the food, nor do the intelligent always have the riches, nor do those with knowledge always have success, because time and unexpected events overtake them all.
With the opening of @nastywomenuk x @creativedebuts’s first feminist exhibition tonight in London, I interviewed Washington D.C-based artist Helen Zughaib (link in bio!). Get to know how she finds balance in life and stays inspired, and be sure to catch the all-women show from 21-24 September. #helenzughaib#womenartists#nastywomenLDN#floral
Fall time means pumpkin time and I'm super not mad about it! 🎃 Hoping to make an attempt at a pumpkin dessert today, wish me luck 😂 Speaking of desserts, I've rounded up a bunch of pumpkin desserts, snacks and meals up on the blog! I never knew how much stuff you could make with pumpkin, but I'm super "pumped" (😉) to try out all these recipes! Link in bio for all the yummy goodness!!
I'm not a big shopper but whenever I'm travelling I can't help but pick up a few things along the way. 💛 I'm spilling the beans on all the souvenirs we picked and some fun festive goodies too. 🎃 Swipe left to see a sneak peak of the fun piece of furniture we crammed into the back of our car and drove all the way home from Vermont! 🙀 More details on the ol' blog.
OUR FIRST GROUP THERAPY //////// taking advantage before it starts snowing (#causeCanada ), "preschool" was held at a park this past Tuesday for the weekly group activity. Nick and I both had the day off, so we took her together. She did some walking around and we were busy trying to keep her from licking the whole playground ("licking everything" is her current obsession and had to whip out her soother to help prevent her from doing so 😂). It's hasn't even been 2 weeks since starting GRIT, and we're already noticing gains in her mobility -- as she's more willing to crawl with less and less encouragement from us (she's super stubborn and always tries to get us to retrieve things for her), as well as walking.
Some days are more exciting than others... Spent an hour or two in the rock pile behind the chicken barn filling up bags with rocks to use as weights on our large sheets of plastic in the field. Got a great workout in as I lugged them around! 💪

Je suis du genre à mettre tous les jours le même parfum (en fonction des saisons). J'aime avoir une "signature scent". Mais j'aime aussi tester de nouvelles choses. Et j'aime beaucoup le @burberry Blush. C'est plus un parfum d'été floral et fruitée. Parfait pour le temps qu'on a en ce moment ❤ C'est quoi votre signature scent ? (Je suis curieuse) 😘 #gifted ||👉http://www.theliquorstore.fr/tabitha/ || Follow me on Snapchat 👻 : Taaabithad
@audible_com is now in Canadian. If you have an account that was in American you can call in and transfer it to the Canadian site.

I can listen while I am doing household work, driving or even laying in bed to help me sleep (for me and works like a dream😉) give @audible_com a try for 30 days free, That's one book for free. I few of my favs so far are The couple next door, My husband's wife, Murder on the orient express. The stranger in the house is my new read, I'll keep you posted on what I think!! #canadianyoutuber#youtuber#canadianblogger#expandthemind#brainfood#readinglist#listeningto#favthings
There is absolutely no doubt that I love a good mascara. 👁👁I have very sparse lashes and I will take any help I can get! Thank you influesnter for sending me this Complimentary Almay Mega Volume Mascara. I can't wait to test it out! #lashoutloud#complimentary @influensterca @almay
I'm particularly excited about this week's video! I tried out the Fenty Beauty Foundation along side my current foundation- Kat Von D Lock it Foundation. Will I be sticking to my current one or did the Fenty Beauty Foundation exceed my expectations? Find out in today's video! Link in my bio. #FentyFace
How delightful are these shoes? After a sweltering summer punctuated by thick wildfire smoke, an evening of running around dodging rain/hail and jumping in puddles feels like a kind of medicine. These kicks are from the Vancouver-based @skyefootwear, sturdy enough for an active day out but feel like a slipper. Not only does this conscious brand take special care to ensure that their employees are happy and treated fairly, but most of their footwear is biodegradable. I honestly love my pair and pull them on whenever I know I have a long day on my feet ahead. You can use the code allyctranSKYE for 15% off! #feetintheskye#partner 📷: the stellar @kararohlphoto
