Happy August Everyone!
The past two months have zipped by, and it’s hard to believe that we are already halfway through the summer! I realize that we are already a week into August but I was having a difficult time putting together my mood board for the month as I entered August under a bit of a dark cloud. I had finally decided to re-evaluate a toxic relationship in my life that I had let fester for far to long. I took it upon myself to reach out and be completely honest about how I was feeling. I thought that I was heard, and I was hopeful that things would change for the better. I gave the person some space to think about our conversation, quietly hopeful to enter a new chapter in our relationship. Unfortunately despite trying to reach out to this person I was met with resounding silence. Rather then being treated with respect, I was ignored and put off as if my concerns and issues were not valid. While I am generally a pretty easy going person who hates confrontation, I was left with no choice – either I could accept being treated as an after thought who’s feelings didn’t matter, or I could cut the cord. That’s when, while scrolling through Instagram I saw the words of wisdom that I posted above “do not look for healing at the feet of those who broke you – Rupi Kuar”. And I knew what I had to do. So while I am sad that things didn’t work out, I am grateful for the opportunity to move forward without any regrets. I can honestly say that I tried my best to salvage what could have been, but I couldn’t do it alone. And now I have to move on. So for the month of August, I will be enjoying my freedom from finally being out from under a dark cloud. I will be healing any residual wounds I may still carry and taking some time to live in the moment and breathe, all the while rocking some of my favourite warm weather fashion. My mood board for August reflects all of these goals – enjoy!

We have made it to June! Hopefully the sun will come out a little bit more and we can begin to enjoy the new season! My mood board for June has me dreaming of new adventures, sunny memories, yummy food, gorgeous shoes and unfussy hair to help motivate me through the month. Enjoy!

May is one of my favourite months of the year. The days start to get longer, the sun shines a little brighter and I can finally trade in my winter boots for some fabulous footwear. With shoes on the brain, my mood board for May reflects my current mindset as we move into the warmer months. Enjoy!

I can’t believe that it is already March! It feels like this year is just zipping by! While we have experienced a few beautiful days here in Montreal, I can’t wait for the warmer weather and lighter clothing options. One my favourite things to do is to build mood boards filled with things that make me smile – fabulous fashion shots, inspirational quotes, delicious food and anything else that makes me happy.
While many may think that fashion shots are an odd choice for a wellness blog, I humbly disagree. Wellness is about healthy eating and living but it is also about embracing things that feed your soul and for me fashion just happens to be one of the things that makes me incredibly happy.
So without further adieu here are some of the shots that I am thriving on at the moment:
