Thank you, Neutrogena® for sponsoring this post! πŸ’–As always, opinions are my own!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! It’s wild that it’s somehow 2019, but here we are! A couple of years ago, I decided to write a list of 17 things I wanted to accomplish in 2017 rather than making vague resolutions. I really enjoyed being able to cross things off the list and reflect back on it at the end of the year. Since 2019 is going to be a jam-packed year for me, I’ve partnered with Neutrogena®to make a new list of goals that promote relaxation, detoxing, and general self-care. So, without further ado, here are the 3 things I want to do in 2019. 

🌟 Silver Bell(e)s - Neutral Holiday Decor Inspiration 🌟

Canadian Tire Christmas Decor White Comfy Cozy Seating
I told you to stay tuned! Last week I wrote a post with a ton of colourful holiday decor inspiration photos (which you can check out here), but warned I'd be making another post for all of the neutral-loving holiday decorators out there. Don't fret - these neutral scenes include a ton of gold and silver accents to keep the space looking less boring and more festive. Again, all items featured are from Canadian Tire's 2018 CANVAS Christmas line, but I hope they motivate you to switch things up a bit this year. I've also included some pictures of the cozy outdoor space they created that can be enjoyed all winter long. Finally, this post also features the crazy DIY Yayoi Kusama-inspired infinity room.

🎁 Merry & Bright - Colourful Holiday Decor Inspiration 🎁

Canadian Tire Christmas Holiday Decor Inspiration Blue Teal
Last week, I was able to visit a house that was dressed to the nines for the winter holidays, courtesy of CANVAS (Canadian Tire's furniture/home decor brand). I took so many photos that it didn't seem right to let them go to waste so I figured, why not make a holiday decor inspiration post (or two)?  All of the items pictured are from the current CANVAS season so you can buy the actual products pictured, or you can just use them for inspiration to repurpose decor items you already have! From gift wrapping accessories and cozy seating to tree ornaments and table settings, I've got you covered so keep reading. This post is going to focus on more colourful and vibrant decor, so if you're more of a neutral lover, stay tuned.

It’s finally December, a month that I personally find to be one of the most stressful months of the year. In an effort to be proactive, I’ve partnered with Neutrogena® to share my five most useful stress management tips! 

As a student, December is full of exam preparation and last-minute assignments. On top of that, there’s holiday planning, gift buying, and more to worry about. Plus, it definitely doesn’t help that the days feel so much shorter with the sun setting so early. As someone who often struggles with stress, I thought it might be helpful to share the top five most useful stress management tips that I’ve come to rely on during my 18-year academic career. While these are mostly school-focused tips, I’m sure they can be tweaked to deal with the stressors that come from work as well!

Thank you, Neutrogena® for sponsoring this post! πŸ’– As always, opinions are my own!

Seemingly unavoidable things like winter weather, acne treatments, and hot showers are constantly working against your skin to dry it out. I’ve been a Neutrogena girl since I was 13 years old, so I’m beyond excited to have partnered with them to bring you a comprehensive review of their Hydro Boost line. I’m going to break the line down product by product, and hopefully give you a better sense of whether certain products might be right (or wrong!) for you.
