Fall In Love With Fall

September has arrived and we can officially begin the festive season. My calendar is always jam-packed this time of the year and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Birthdays, picnics, anniversaries, s’mores bar, tailgating, Halloween, Thanksgiving, outdoor movie nights, Christmas, oh my! To kickstart my favorite time of the year, I made some trail mix and packed a quick picnic basket to take with us, for a day of family fun outdoors.

Bowlicious

It’s international bow day! With two little girls and my self being borderline overly enthusiastic about all things “girly”, it’s safe to say that we enjoy this silly holiday. Nothing seemed more appropriate, then to bow-fy and make bowtiful hair styles.

Parachutes

Whenever I ask my kids what they want to be, when they grow up, the answer is always the same, scientist! They are very inquisitive as most children are, always on a mission to find new experiments to do and adventures to embark on.

I make it my mission to never utter the words “I don’t know”, when they ask questions I don’t have answers for. Instead I make it into an experiment we can find the answers to together, all while we are having fun and spending quality time.

My Little Pony Birthday Party

I have a little girl here, who is very excited for her birthday. To say that she’s obsessed with My Little Pony, is the biggest understatement in the history of the world. So of course she wants to have a MLP themed party. I have a specific idea I want to implement, I’m thinking MLP Sleep Under Party. I’ve already ordered a bunch of party supplies and I will be sharing them all, once they arrive, but for now, enjoy this mood board I’ve created for the occasion.

Inspire Her Mind!

A few months ago, I read a book for my little girls about Amelia Earhart. Ever since that bedtime story, my oldest has been very occupied with equal rights and proving to her self that girls can do anything, just like boys.

Exploring what you are capable of in your formative years, can be great fun and exciting. I see my job here to be guidance. Nudging them ever so gently into the right path and exposing them to new and inspiring experiences through life’s adventures.

Educate a woman and you educate her family.
Educate a girl and you change the future.
– Queen Rania of Jordan –

Inspiring their minds through story telling, embarking on awe-inspiring field trips and mind blowing experiments are just a few tools I carry in my arsenal of how to raise strong willed, open minded, well cultured and intelligent little girls.

Wake Up Buttercup

We all want our days to be productive and successful and I’m here to let you know it is not as hard or daunting as it may seem. It’s actually quite simple, not easy, but simple non the less!

wake up buttercup, Productivity, Productive, Morning Person, Good Morning, Morning Motivation, Playlist, Music, Good Morning Playlist, According to Amelia, Monday Motivation, Music Inspiration,

Research shows that your brain has a five-second time limit, when it’s required to make hard decisions. These choices require what’s called, activation energy. This is the minimum quantity of energy you must possess in order to undergo a specific reaction.

So lets take for instance, your alarm goes off and you don’t want to get out of bed. Your brain chooses to press snooze, and with that you have chosen not to enforce your self to tap into your activation energy. By not disciplining your own behavior, you fall short and into bad habits, which is counterproductive.

Now on to the part on how it’s simple to start your day productive. First things first, don’t press snooze! Get up! No matter how tired you are, that feeling will go away after a few minutes. A refreshing morning shower/rinse wakes your body and then caffeine and nutrition for your brain. Last but not least, something for your psyche. Make an upbeat playlist and play it on shuffle, that way you don’t get easily tiered of your favorite tunes.

Here’s my Good Morning Playlist, which also works as my alarm clock. I wake up feeling pumped and excited to embark on a new day. Since I’ve started this new routine, I no longer have to wake my sleepy kiddos either, as they wake up to music they like and get ready for their day. We sing, dance and get ready together for our days all the way to school. That’s what I call an upbeat start to a productive day!

Battle Of The: Hand Lotions

Summer or winter, we are always exposed to the elements and if you are the type who likes to live on the edge, I sure hope you wander out there protected. Whether it be the winter cracks or dehydration brought on by the summer sun, I’ve got your back. I’ve rounded up some of my current favorite hand lotions, get ready for a heavenly-scented-midday-pick-me-up.

Lavande Hand Cream. This is my all time favorite! Lets first begin with, L’Occitane you had me at the packaging! The aluminum tube with it’s robust screw on lid pleases my love for all things rustic. The soothing scent of lavender, lowers my shoulders and feels like a teeny tiny spa treatment. The formula is a mixture of cream and gel. It glides on smooth and instantly teleports you the French countryside.

Cherry Blossom Hand Cream. Another favorite by non other then L’Occitane. What can I say, I’m a sucker for the packaging! If you like a more floral scent, then this is the hand cream for you. Just like the one above, Cherry Blossom too glides on smooth and does not feel greasy because of its formula. A beautifully sweet scented hand cream, perfect for any purse.

Vaseline Intensive Care. This is a hand lotion without any fuss or gimmick. A products that actually delivers what it promises. If you want softer hands and stronger nails, give this lotion a try and I promise you will thank me in two weeks time.

A Dream Worthy Bedroom

Bedroom, Master Bedroom, Pillow Talk, Interior, Decor, Interior Decor, Design, Bedroom Design, Interior Design, photo

I’m very particular, when it comes to my bedroom. It’s not just a place I lay my head down and hope to catch a few hours of sleep, it’s my sanctuary. A place where I look forward to being in, somewhere I retreat to, when the outside world becomes too hectic and loud, or both. A space of my own. I like to think of it as my very own universe, a universe within another and I travel freely between these multiverse’s.

Creating this universe of mine, takes lots of consideration and planning. I’ve spent years on fine tweaking it and come to terms with, that as long as I’m happy with the bigger points, the smaller ones can change, as I develop and change. Color, material, texture and scents are all major factors to take into consideration, when making any space feel like home.

When it comes to bedlinen, nothing says clean and comfortable quite like rich and light colored cotton. A fresh, but not over powering scented candle can transform your space from one to another. A stark contrast of dark wooden furniture and light colored fabrics, is the perfect match for a hint of a much needed masculine touch. Last but not least, decor. I make it to be a conscious decision when decorating any room, to keep it simple! I only use meaningful items that brings me joy and happiness.
