Love yourself…

Workout because you LOVE yourself, not because you HATE your body.

image1-3I have been in a love-hate relationship with my body for as long as I can possibly remember.

I have always been petite/small but not naturally “thin”. Now don’t get me wrong.. I’m not calling myself overweight but I am super curvy and lets just say this was not a trend in the 90s….  In high school and in my early 20s “THIN was in”.. and it really fucked with my head because I was always comparing myself to other girls..

Fast forward 20 years later.. I am a pretty confident 38-year-old woman but I still have these moments where I “hate” my body..  BUT I have FINALLY come to the realization that… “It’s not about being thin or overweight.. it’s about being healthy, both mentally and physically; its about self-love” .. and I try to remind myself of this every time I go to the gym, or I’m out for a run or I’m on a yoga mat… Yes, I want to look good.. but in order to look good, I have to feel good… and in order to feel good.. I have to LOVE MYSELF!

It’s beginning to look a lot like…..

Happy Saturday!

I have been MIA for almost a month now! I know I totally suck at this whole blogging thing  but I promised myself that I would never write or post just because I felt like I “had” to.. if you know what I mean..

Anyways, today I thought I’d share a few items that just arrived from H&M Home! If you have never shopped H&M home I highly suggest you do! They have the most amazing home collection at H&M’s affordable pricing! None of the H&M locations in Vancouver have a home department but that is what the good ol’ internet is for!

As you can see I am getting ready for the holidays! stay tuned for the finished look!
