Them Donuts


A couple of weeks ago I was craving a donut so, then I bought 12. Typical Kathy move, meh... I've got a sweet tooth what can I say?!

I'm still getting the hang of this whole vlog deal. I've got to admit I had an epic fail on the weekend, started my day off with a Vlog about our trip to the market and completely forgot to finish it... haha I'm taking it easy on myself though I'm still getting the hang of it!

I will be posting videos of myself outside of the house because believe it or not I do leave my house! I will get to them eventually, so stay tuned, pardon my dorkiness and lets just pretend I'm decent at these okay? I'm learnnninnggg my friends. Slow and steady wins the race!

Have a happy Hump Day!



What to do when you feel like things are tough

Life is hard. Not just for me but for everyone. People go through crap every single day. Some worse than others but to everyone their problems are a big deal because in reality they are since it's happening to them.

I am someone who can go from feeling really low to all of a sudden feeling perfectly fine but in a blink of an eye, I can go from being perfectly fine to feeling really low. Anxiety is no joke and honestly in the last two weeks it has reminded me that it still lurks in the depths of my brain. It didn't want to be forgotten, so it came back with a vengeance but guess what, I won't let it win.

When I begin to feel the symptoms of despair and helplessness, my instincts kick in. I instantly think to myself, "oh hell no, not again" and I work so hard at reminding myself every day, every hour and every minute that it's really not that bad. It's a funny thing when you're brain tricks you into thinking that it's all falling apart and crumbling, when everything literally has a solution and can actually be fixed. It's funny that way. 

Okay, so now a list of the things I do when my anxiety kicks in. 

Medicate. I take a herbal medicine called VC-15 Forte, it is an all natural stress remedy that I truly believe helps me. It's a drinkable vial that you take once a day for a month and I find that my symptoms of stress and anxiety begin to diminish within a solid week. I'll take it for about a month and then take a month off because I don't want to be dependant on it, I want to make sure I can still live my life knowing that I don't necessarily need it! 

Talk to someone. Now this one is key. Whenever I really feel low and like my world is crumbling beneath me I talk to Brent, my mom, my sister or my friends. I need to be able to have someone give me a hug and tell me that it's all going to be okay and that I'm stronger than the anxiety because sometimes you just need a little lovin' alright?! 

Workout. Okay, this one can be tough because when I'm really feeling crappy no part of me wants to do anything at all. When I do feel unmotivated all I have to do is look at my fitness feed and it reminds me of how far I have come and how I KNOW I will feel better afterwards, even if its for a fleeting moment I always feel better after a workout. 

VEG OUT. Seriously, sometimes you just need a good Netflix binge, some cheese heavy pizza and to just block it all out. I give myself ONE day when I'm feeling really down to sulk and let my emotions get the best of me but then I try to keep busy and stay productive. 

Last but not least, FAKE IT. If there is one thing I can be really good at it's faking that things are peachy keen. I know it's probably not the healthiest thing to do but sometimes you gotta fake it till you make it baby! 

Those are a few things that I try to do when I'm feeling like my anxiety is getting the best of me. What are some things my fellow anxiety-ee's do? I'd love to know!! 

Have a great week friends! XO 



Good morning friends!! 
Alright, here goes nothing! I started a Vlog, ahhhhhhh. I have been wanting to do it for quite some time but never really had the courage to do it. Last week both Brent and my sisters boyfriend, Mitch told me to just do it so, I DID! And i've gotten so much positive feedback! Lol it's only my first one and it's definitely me at my dorkiest but thats okay, I have come to terms that I'm a huge dork and thats okay!

My first vlog is pretty simple and to the point! I'm glad I did it and as embarrassing as it is to watch myself, I actually really liked it! I hope you do too! 

Stay tuned for more! My next one will be all about donuts! Yummmmmmm! 


International Womens Day

Good Morning! 

Today is a special day, it's International Women's Day! Although women should be celebrated everyday, it's nice to have a day dedicated to us. There are so many women in my life who are so strong and hardworking and women who empower me to be the best that I can be. My mom, my sister, my family and my best friends. I am truly lucky to be surrounded by such amazing women. They are each special in their own way, they have each accomplished amazing tasks and I am so grateful that I have them to turn to whenever I need it.

I don't ever feel like I'm competing with these women, I truly feel empowered by them. When I see other women be successful, I don't get jealous, I get inspired to better myself. 

I hope that all you women enjoy this day that is ours, tell the ladies in your life that you love them and that your proud of them and how far they've come. It is so important to compliment those you love and care for the most. 

Here's to strong women, may we know them, may we be them, may we raise them. 

Much love 



Sunday Thoughts

Good afternoon babes. 

Oh Sundays, I have such a love/hate relationship with you. You are always my most relaxing day of the week but you are also the last day of the weekend which makes me terribly sad. But I cannot be mad at you this Sunday because I have tomorrow off so this post is a little useless right? I'm just speaking out for the rest of the population ;) 

Yesterday, Brent and I had a super busy day. We woke up nice and early, hello 6am wake up (ON A SATURDAY!!!!) we had a meeting with our lovely candle team and then we had our friends wedding to attend! Brent played guitar at the wedding, a nice little version of 'Thinking out loud' and then we partied all night. The food was spectacular and I cannot express enough how important it is that the food be good! I do NOT ever blame the bride and groom if the food is awful because it really isn't their fault. Usually they are presented with these amazing dishes, they test it out and its great and when the day actually comes the halls can just fall short. But last nights dinner was fricken awesome. We had stuffed chicken (not sure what it was stuffed with), AMAZING mashed potatoes (I'm talking like A+) and some delicious veggies. They served cheesecake for desert and it was the perfect amount of cheesiness, not overwhelming at all. Oh my god, I'm making myself hungry! Ha! Overall it was an amazing day, I am so happy for the bride and groom and we are SO honoured to have been invited and been a part of their amazing day! 

Today, I am suffering from a minor hangover but I believe I'm mostly just exhausted. So I've been in pjs and watching netflix all day. That's what Sundays were invented for right? I mean it is the day of rest, soo.... I'm gonna rest! 

I hope that you all have a fabulous rest day and are ready for your day tomorrow! 

Sleep, eat and relax my friends. Enjoy life's little moments, even these ones that don't seem to be important because they really kind of are. This right here, this very moment is your life so embrace it, enjoy it and love it. 

Be at peace my friends. 



March Madness

Rabbit, Rabbit my friends! Wishing you a great month! 

Can you believe that we're already in March? Like where the heck does the time go?! We're on an official four month countdown until the wedding, say whaaaat?! This is craziness! 

We've got some things to look forward too this month, we have our friends wedding this weekend, Brent has his champagne birthday, both our dads have their birthdays this month too... it's just a fun filled month! Spring is coming too which is super exciting but today we're expecting a big snowstorm, we all know how amazing 10+cm of snow is right? NOT. Well I can't complain this winter has been pre-tty decent. So bring on the last bit of snow, you'll give me a snow day ;) haha 

I hope that you're month is filled with goals, relaxation and plenty of love and happiness. It's the first day of the month, so make it count! This is your life make the best of it!
