Good morning 2017! Today I have a special post for you from PandaVita! They contacted me asking if I’d like to try out their new Baobab Powder! Of course I said yes, because who doesn’t love organic, vitamin c, high in fibre, natural energy magical tree powder! & there’s a $5 off coupon code below for you!
So obviously the first question is what is Baobab? I personally had never heard of it before, however! Baobab trees are regarded as one of the most majestic and oldest trees in the world. They are extremely large angiosperm trees that can grow up to 30 metres long and 15 metres wide. The trees are regarded as the longest living on earth and experts believe that they have been in existence for over 100,000 years. Each individual tree can last up to and over 1000 years, with the oldest known as Grootboom which was dated and found to be at least 1275 years old.
I wouldn’t recommend drinking this alone, I had to give it a little taste so I knew what I was adding to my smoothie. It’s very very citrusy and not sweet at all. Blends in nicely in my morning smoothie though!
According to National Geographic, the baobab fruit contains about six times more vitamin C than oranges, twice as much calcium as milk, many types of Vitamin B complexes, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and lots of antioxidants. Yes antioxidants, a fruit wouldn’t be a ‘super fruit’ without its fair share of antioxidants that boost your health in a multitude of ways.
A couple months back I did a jewelry lookbook photoshoot with the talented T. Lane Design. She is such a fantastic artist and beautiful soul, I was able to do a short interview with her!
How would you describe yourself?
I am really bad at describing myself and try never to put labels on myself or anyone else. I guess I am determined to surprise people. I like a bit of mystery and hope that transfers to my work.
Who has influenced you the most?
I am influenced by the people I keep close to me and also, lately, Walt Whitman and Tom Robbins.
What inspired you to get into fashion & jewelry design?
Since I was very young I’ve been interested and inclined toward fashion and design. I have always been inspired to bring out the beauty of an individual. It’s like unveiling a mystery.
What’s one thing you’re most proud of?
In life, the thing I’m most proud of is my daughter. But in business, I’m most proud of not selling out. My work is ethical, handcrafted and completely one of a kind. Each piece is a work of art, just like the humans they are created for.
Where and with whom do we find you on a Saturday night?
Well, this past Saturday, I was at my place with my closies making amazing food, indulging in a good red wine, practicing my billiards and playing dress up in my upstairs vintage shop.

Happy new year friends! I want to start off by thanking everyone for their ongoing support of my artwork, website, youtube ect! You’ve all made it really worth my time and I thank you and appreciate that.
I’ve never been one to sit down and write my resolutions down. I’m really not even the type who’s ever HAD resolution besides “get published” haha. (which hasn’t really happened yet).
Resolutions… Resolutions… Resolutions…
Things that need to stop.
Things i’d like to start.
I think having 3 of each is a nice balance for now. These are things I have thought a lot throughout 2016 and need to just get a move on with it.
Once again, thank you for reading! Have a beautiful 2017 friends!

Good Morning 2016! I have a lot that I am proud of this year, however I am also very ready for my fresh start in 2017. There is a lot i’d like to accomplish this year, just like everyone else. A big one for me is self respect and not letting people take advantage me. I’ve done a lot for people in the past and eventually people just stop putting in effort, stop giving back… they become selfish and ignorant. Which upsets me, but then I have to remind myself to only keep the relationships/friendships with mutual respect. Respect Yo’self. 😉 But don’t forget about the people who respect and do a lot for you! I’ll be creating a resolutions post tomorrow to get more in depth because this is actually my first year with real goals/resolutions.
❆ I believe in myself. ❆
Below I have some photo’s I took of my roommate and close friend Jess Brown. You may have seen her on my site before & her friend Lindsay, they are both burlesque dancers based in Nelson, BC. ❆
[I’ll upload the high res photo’s when i get home to my other computer!]
I hope what ever you have planned for tonight you are spending it with people who love and care about you! May your new year be full of bright smiles and positive energy ♡
❄ xo ❄
Merry Christmas everyone! Sending my love and positive energy to every single one of you! Wishing you a safe, healthy and happy year! Be kind to one another and don’t forget to tell the one’s who matter the most that you love them!
