Mental Health Awareness

With a few high profile suicides this week, I felt compelled to lend my voice to the mental health discussion.  I am not a psychologist, psychiatrist, counselor or mental health professional, so I will not go too in depth.  The idea behind this post is simply to keep the discussion going.



One thing that seems to happen any time there is a celebrity suicide is that we see a number of posts of shock: "I had no idea", "they seemed so happy", "I can't believe it!".  It emphasizes the point that we don't always know what's happening with people beyond their "public face". 

It is undeniable that depression, anxiety and many other mental health issues are not restricted to certain professions, certain types of people, or any other social classification.  Mental health is something that affects all of us, and while more discussion is happening, we still have more work to do.  Please keep this discussion going. 

If you are battling depression, know you are not alone.   Please reach out if you need help:

- In Canada, you can call the Canadian Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-833-456-4566, or contact your local center - contact information can be found here: https://suicideprevention.ca/need-help/

- In the USA, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

7 Tips to Making Travel Easier

Travel is honestly one of my favourite topics of conversation.  I'm sure that's not shocking to anyone that knows me and/or has read this blog.  I've been asked before to share some of my tips and tricks for easy travel - here are some of my favourites.  Keep in mind that not all of these are ideal for every trip, so it depends on what kind of travel you're doing, but hopefully you find some good information.

1 - Store your passports somewhere that is easily accessible.... but not TOO easily accessible
This seems like a confusing tip, but here's what I mean.  Have you ever been in that moment of boarding and you're frantically searching your carry-ons for where you put the passports?  I've been there.  Those are stressful moments.  You don't want to leave your passports too easily accessible, as they can easily be taken from your bags, but you need them close by, how do you handle that?    I use a carry-on bag that has an inside zipper pocket.  I dedica…

Product Review: Bare Blossom Skincare & Organics

I've mentioned before that I haven't traditionally been the biggest beauty product or makeup user.  But in recent years, my skin has changed and I need to take care of it better than I have been.  This is where Bare Blossom Skincare & Organics comes in.  They offer a range of skincare and other organic products that are locally made in my home province of New Brunswick!

I decided to give these products a try after seeing a few posts on Facebook about them, and that they offered a "sample pack", which offered some sample sizes of a lot of their products, so it was an opportunity to try a number of products without committing to full size.

The first product I tried was the "Goddess Face Mask".  The texture is very similar to "mud".  It can dry out a little if not used right away, but just adding a tiny bit of water and working it through gets it ready for application.

You don't need much, but just apply to your entire face.  It goes on prett…
