10 things


Hello Friends and happy September!

I can't believe we're already here... School has started, pumpkin spice everything has begun and soon enough it'll be cool outside and the trees with begin to start changing colours! It's crazy how fast this whole year has gone by... It feels like it has been a whirlwind. I've decided to do a 10 things about me, in case you're new around here ;) So, enjoy and leave me a comment with a few things about you! I'd love to hear them. 

1. I'm probably the biggest procrastinator in the world. I do most things very last minute. I think I enjoy the thrill of being stressed out and knowing I waited too long but most times I find that thats when I get the most creative. I just work really well under pressure. 

2. I like lists. I write lists all the time, grocery lists, to do lists, what I like most lists. I write them on a million scraps of papers, then I lose them and completely forget about them. It's a never ending cycle. 

3. I am trying keyword is TRYING to get back on the blog wagon but I find that it's been tough. I love chronicling my life and having a place to look back and see all of the things I have done in the past but for some reason I find it hard to really stick to it. Maybe blogging is a bit overrate but it's something I really enjoy doing! That being said I am going try to get back into it but do it differently, stay true to myself, have fun with it and say screw you to the pressure of being "perfect". 

4. I'm in the process of "self-discovery" that sounds SO lame but it's true! Hear me out! I feel like for a long time I haven't been myself, a lot of things have happened this year with the business, getting married and dealing with life's curveballs that sometimes you get so caught up in all of it. So I want to start writing down how I'm feeling, the steps I'm taking to discover who I am, what I truly want and what brings me happiness.  

5. I have anxiety. Even though it has been a good 3 months since my last serious anxiety attack, it is still something that I live with every day. I have gotten a lot better at controlling myself  and thankfully I have such a strong support system that whenever I start acting up my mom, Brent and my friends are so quick to be there for me and to bring me down to Earth. It's been a long learning process but I'm starting to finally feel "normal" again. 

6. I own a candle business and I love it so much. It took me a good year to find my love for my business again especially after such a tough first year. But in the last month I have found myself looking forward to working on it again, there's a lot of exciting projects coming up and I can't wait until I get to share them! 

7. I'm a creative type. I love arts and crafts (which is probably why I opened up a candle business), I love making videos and having fun and really allowing my artistic self to come out. For some weird reason, I had tucked away Ms. Krafty Kathy for a little while but I'm starting to bring her out again and it has been pretty fun! 

8. I am super frugal. If there is one aspect of my life that is extremely important its being frugal. I am your sales girl. I do not buy anything unless it is discounted or under $20. The year before I moved in with Brent I began buying all the stuff that I thought I would need for our home, you know dishes, curtains, decor etc. at that time Target was still a thing in Canada (RIP Target, I will always love you) and every single thing that I bought was found in the clearance section. I think it's super important to remember that you can have nice things on a budget or for cheap, so long as you look for it! ;) 

9. I love to read. I read all kinds of books from fiction, self-help books to biographies. I'll read any and all of it. 

10. I have one tattoo, it's my brothers birthday in roman numerals and I have about two more that I would like to get. I keep saying I want them but I always chicken out but this November I'm gonna do it! Hold me to it people! 

Have a great Tuesday!
