HEY YOU, DON’T FORGET TO TREAT YOUR SELF today.
After crossing the border back to Canada just in time for work - my best friend ELLA & I looked at each other and went hmm.. that was THE BEST MORNING!
To be honest it was nothing out of the ordinary, and for two gals who have had the privilege to see so many beautiful places around the world, how could such a simple morning be so exciting & memorable.
Post snow storm & frost in the air - we got in the car and headed south towards a coffee shop we had discovered through some pictures online.
I’m a sucker for a cute cafe, a little adventure and beautiful greenery!
First off, this place was 100% worth the “ international drive”.
IF YOU ARE READING THIS - YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT BABYGREENS !! @plantshopbaby on instagram and in person.
There seems to be a trend going on, where everyone is purging their closets, belongings, drastically cutting out sugar, coffee, vowing to never shop ever again because it’s not ethical and all of the above. Instead - consider simply doing things in moderation & with intentionality. Getting rid of items that no longer bring you joy is so great, but once in a while it is also important to purchase yourself a little treat that can go a long way for your overall productivity, mood or happiness. (or get someone else a treat and make their day!)
I found shifting my perspective on spending has made me really value the things I have purchased.
I pay for that $5 + coffee because not only am I supporting someones business, but I know I will enjoy it - I know it allowed me to catch up with a friend or work on something creative in a beautiful environment.
We gather, thrift & search through home decor store for pieces that will make us enjoy spending time in our bedrooms. (That’s one of me and Ella’s fav activities - cleaning our cute rooms haha! Stay tuned, we did a photoshoot of her’s for her upcoming blog.)
SO DO IT - take a morning off
Get that cute plant
Buy that drink if it allows you to sit and enjoy a calm moment.
Treat yourself to that 3-wick candle you’ve been meaning to splurge on!
I THINK YOU DESERVE IT!
Finding joy and excitement in the little things has honestly made life SO MUCH FUN.
Thanks Amanda for helping us pick some greenery to smuggle home. This one was my absolute favourite find.
instagram vs. reality
No personal photographer following you around 24/7? no problem > Film with your back facing iphone camera in 4K setting, pose, smile, dance, laugh and then screenshot your fav moment after! I have been loving the VSCO M5 filter or I use Lightroom mobile CC for my current instagram theme.
