Good morning beautiful souls! I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend either filled with relaxation or some fun filled plans! My plans unfortunately had to be postponed this Saturday, wasn’t feeling the absolute greatest sadly...tis the season! I am not really a huge fan of the cold! It involves loads of sicknesses and being chilly all the time! Makes me just want to hibernate….anyone with me!?
“…let’s stay cozy this winter!”
Although, something that does help me get through the cold season is cute outdoor attire, am I right? I am super excited to share this Canadian Company with you beauts! This company is from Vancouver, British Columbia and they are called, “Gingersnap’s Crochet”. This company provides handmade stylish crochet goods…. and let me just say talented this business is! They provide stunning toques from sizes 3 months to adults (Perfect for styling your kiddos in!)
I don’t know about you guys but I adore hats for the winter season! I think hats look super stylish and they are just so cozy! What I absolutely adore about these toques is that they come in different beautiful colours and you can take off the pompom if you wish for some! The colours look incredibly cozy! I received my toque in the shade, “Marble” which can be paired with so many outfits/outerwear apparel. These toques retail in store, depending on size, for around $48.13.
The second item that I can not get enough of are these adorable cozies for your hot drinks! I am a huge lover of anything related to hearts so this had me at first sight! I received my cozy design with a huge white heart in the middle and a grey background. What I love about these and the toques is that there are so many stunning colours to choose from as well! There is another design for the cozies too which is a ton of small hearts all over it… just as adorable as this one! These retail for $13.75 in store. The cozies are super cute to bring to work when grabbing your Starbucks or your timmies! I love anything related to fashion, including my hot drinks! Are you the same!?
“…it’s cuddle weather!”
This beautiful store also sells adorable winter headbands, crochet storage baskets (super cute!), and even scrunchies! I highly recommend checking them out if you haven’t already! You can find them on Instagram at “@gingersnapscrochet”, or follow their website at “www.gingersnapcrochet.etsy.com”. I want to personally thank this amazing company for allowing me to collaborate with them! You guys are amazing, and you have such gorgeous pieces! Be sure to stay cozy this season Beauts & grab your winter attire!
Happy Monday my sweets! It’s Monday and it’s the start to a fresh new week! It’s time to set some goals for yourself & stay motivated! I know Mondays can be a buzzkill for a lot of people, but it doesn’t have to be if you create a good mindset! Remember, if you are determined to have a good day and try your best to stay positive, you will have a good day! Trying to stay clear of negative thoughts will help you out a ton! Creating a more positive environment will help you feel more energized and optimistic.
Speaking of being more optimistic and creating positive vibes, I recently collaborated with such an upbeat and inspirational company called, “The Sankalpa Project”. This company focuses on yoga and meditation products! I can not begin to express how much of a beautiful company this is and what they have to offer! To start off, they are a Canadian Company from Mississauga Ontario, which is amazing! I absolutely love supporting Canadian Local companies!
About the Company
The Sankalpa Project is a company based on inspiration and creation. They base their products on the concepts of mindfulness, holistic lifestyles and being grounded which I absolutely adore! The company uses a lot of eco-friendly materials and is built on their own trifold Sankalpa vow which is to celebrate the whole self , create wellness and to have a positive impact on the environment. I am all for these values of their company and really love the bases and meaning behind their name as well (San- born from the heart and Kalpa-over time). One thing that stood out to me about this beautiful company is that a portion of their annual sales is donated to a non-profit organization. This year, the company is supporting “Charity Water”, and for every 10 products sold, a tree is planted. I can not emphasize how amazing this is, especially when it comes to the environment and helping out. The Sankalpa Project strongly believes in supporting women which is great, and their sewed items are actually made by local women in the community. Their community vision also extends to free yoga classes as well as free yoga workshops which is incredible! The company strongly believes in supporting the environment and helping to reduce as much waste as possible. What I really love about this company is that each product is made with an ambulance of wholeheartedness and love.
About the Products
I am so blessed & fortunate to share that I am a Brand Ambassador for this amazing company! I can not express how whole hearted and accepting this company is, and I could not be more proud to become apart of this project! I received such a beautiful package in the mail and it honestly brought tears to my eyes when I read the letter that came with it. I am so honoured and fortunate to have been given this opportunity that I am about to share with you beauts! I received a stunning bracelet in my package that believe it or not…. was inspired by me and my Instagram feed! I could not believe it! This bracelet is actually on the company’s website right now and is labelled the “much love” bracelet. I can not get over this, I am beyond grateful and so thankful! The warm colours of the bracelet are inspired by my feed! This bracelet is inspired by the need for love & speaking with love. As you beauts know, this has always been my saying for as long as I can remember, and I can not express how special this is! There are two gemstones that are featured on this bracelet which are Aquamarine and Tiger Eye. Aquamarine is a Stone that is calming, soothing, inspires trust and letting go. The stone “Tiger Eye” is a Stone of protection which helps focus the mind and helps promote mental clarity. The bracelet is absolutely stunning and I can’t get over how gorgeous the shades are! This bracelet retails in store for $24.00.
“…having the right mindset & attitude can literally change your life”
The next product that I received in my beautiful package was this super stretchy cute headband! This is the “Magenta Cotton Headband”, which is super comfortable yet stylish at the same time! This is perfect when doing yoga/meditating or even just going out & about! This looks gorgeous with your hair up or down too! I love how there is a knot on the headband which you can move to the front or the back! There are also so many different colours to choose from which is great! This product retails for $16.00 on the website!
Beauts….. I am super excited about the next two products I am going to show you guys! You guys know that I love anything that has adorable sayings or quotes. I think reading decorations with a cute quote on them can brighten your mood in two seconds, am I right?! I have lots of cute sayings located around my room and even in my house for that matter! Did I mention they are on all my coffee mugs as well? Being surrounded by so much positivity really makes for a great day and creates such a positive mindset! I received these adorable coasters/ornaments that are so stinking cute! These retail for $4.99 and come in so many different designs and sayings.
“Rinse, Receive & Rediscover…”

Hey there beauts! Happy Saturday! I am so glad that it is finally the weekend thank god. How was everyone’s week been? Have any big plans for the weekend? I am heading to a pumpkin patch this weekend with the boyfriend and I can not wait to take some cute fall pictures! Have to take pictures or it didn’t happen right? (let’s be real now). I am also going to enjoy myself and put my feet up while I have my glass of veno, I deserve it and you deserve to relax as well!
So over the past couple of months, I have been getting some new followers which is absolutely unreal! Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to get to know me! If there’s two things you should know about me it’s that I adore my glass of wine on the weekend , and that I love love LOVE my jewelry. I think that is why I absolutely adore being a girl is that you get to doll yourself up, ,explore fashion and try spice up your wardrobe! These are the mad highlights that make me so incredibly happy you don’t even know! I am talking about glitter galore, anything pink, a million bags, you get the picture! When I am getting ready in the morning, I love finishing off my entire look with some jewelry pieces such as rings, bracelets and of course earrings. I use to always stick to the standard stud earrings back in the day, I was so afraid to experiment and try out new styles. I was afraid to get that kind of attention. Fast forward years later and I am so glad I pushed passed that mindset and decided to step out and explore the fashion world. There are so many adorable styles of earrings! I can not go a day without wearing earrings, in fact, if I step foot out of the door and forgot some, I run back in to stick a pair in (I am a tad bit ridiculous!). Beauts, I am beyond stoked and excited to share with you guys a collaboration that I have been so fortunate to be able to be apart of! I can not express how absolutely stunning this company is. I recently collaborated with a company called, “Aqua dreams Boutique”, who specializes in on-trend handmade jewelry. These pieces are absolutely GORGEOUS and I can not emphasize that enough oh my! This little boutique is from North Carolina, United States.
Amanda Lee is the owner of “Aqua dreams Boutique”, and is so down to earth to connect with! She is extremely friendly, and is more than happy to help you out and help you find what you are looking for! Her pieces are incredibly stunning, and you can tell you puts a ton of work into her products when it comes to the style and design. On her website she offers unique styles in earrings as well as necklaces. From animal prints, glitter, flower, and Halloween styles, they are BEAUTIFUL.
I was so fortunate and blessed to receive 5 pairs of beautiful earrings to show for you beauts! The earrings come in two different styles , either “Boho fan”, or “Feather” shaped. Guys, when I mean every single pair of earrings were adorable on the site, I mean EVERY SINGLE PAIR. I was absolutely blown away at how stylish and chic these earrings were, and I fell in love with every single one on her website. She truly has an eye for fashion and a beautiful taste in style!
The first pair of earrings that I received were the “Glitter Feather Earrings” in the shade Porcelain. These earrings are breathtaking and the colour is just flawless. What I love about these earrings is that they are such a great and subtle colour that goes well with so many different outfits! The glitter is to die for, and the size is perfect! These ones are in a size medium, but the earrings can come in three different sizes; small, medium and large. What I also love about these earrings is that they are such a statement piece. They are super flattering and so shimmery! Perfect for so many occasions. The earrings also are hypoallergenic which is great, so irritation does not occur!
These earrings come in a whole bunch of different colours that you have the option to choose from! These ones retail in store for $28.56, and are super lightweight!
“…life isn’t perfect, but your outfit can be!”
The second pair of earrings that I received were the, “Silver Leopard Earrings”. As you beauts know I absolutely love my animal prints, especially when it comes to leopard print! I am super stoked about these ones, they are so cute! Again, such a statement piece which I love! You can pair these earrings with so many different outfits. These ones come in different colours and animal prints as well such as alligator skin and snakeskin too! Colours vary from gold, pink, black, brown,champagne, and even coral! These ones retail in store for $28.56 and are in the size medium.
“sparkle every day”
The third pair of earrings that I want to show you beauts are breathtaking as well. Amanda Lee thought of so many creative and unique pieces, I have no words for these goodies! These ones are called, “Burgundy Boho Fan Earrings”, and I just adore this colour! These are perfect for the fall time and the glitter on them is just beautiful! As you can see the Boho Fan style are just as elegant and classy as the Feather style ones. Why not add a bit of both into your fashion routine?! These ones retail for $27.17. You can choose the glitter burgundy style or just burgundy in general if you are not feeling the glitter! For me personally, the more glitter the better!
The fourth pair of earrings that I received from “Aqua Dreams Boutique” are these flawless, “Glitter Feather Earrings”, in the shade Neon Coral. I am in love with anything that is a coral colour. It is such a bold and fun colour that you can play around with! I again love the shimmer, anything shimmery I am so down for! I love adding these earrings to a more subtle outfit as they truly make your outfit “pop” and standout! These one are probably one of my absolute favorites for sure! Again, so many beautiful glittery colour to choose from! These ones retail in store for $28.53 and are in a size medium. Grab yours today!
The final and last pair of earrings that I cannot wait to show you beauts are these adorable fall coloured ones! These ones are from the Feather Earrings collection and are in the shade Burnt Orange (so stunning!). I love subtle and cozy colours like this, this literally screams fall to me, and makes me want to jump in a great big pile of leaves! (just kidding, maybe just go grab that pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks instead! haha). I love the burnt orange colour! You can have so much fun styling these earrings with so many different kinds of outfits! If you adore the fall, these are a MUST HAVE in your fall wardrobe! These ones are actually in a size large but are not too big at all whatsoever! These ones retail on her website for $23.09. Ps… did I mention that all of these products are handmade? YUPP! Just wanted to throw that in there for ya!
I really hope you beauts enjoyed this little try on session blog! I honestly had so much fun conducting this post for you guys, and I can not express how in love I am with these earrings! I want to personally give a HUGE thank you to Amanda Lee and her amazing company, “Aqua Dreams Boutique” for allowing me to collaborate with you! It was an absolute pleasure to be apart of this, I am so grateful! I have received numerous compliments on these pieces, and have been wearing them with different outfits nonstop all week! Be sure to come and check out her Instagram page at, “@aquadreamsboutique” and her Etsy shop as well! All of her information is located in her Instagram bio!
So I am curious! Are you beauts more of a necklace type of gal, or are you all about the earrings? Personally I love both don’t get me wrong but I will always be a die hard earrings lover all the way! If you guys do end up purchasing some pieces from her shop let me know what you buy!

I am so proud of you, I hope your week is flying by for you, and you got some great plans for the weekend! Anybody doing anything fun? For me I think I am going to take it easy, relax, burn my fall candle, and do some blogging…. get into my zone!
Put your hand up if you are absolutely adoring the fall weather! Is anyone a hardcore fall lover like myself? I’m talking about pumpkin spice latte overload, big over sized sweaters, those plaid scarves, and cute fall pictures that you have to convince your boyfriend to take of you! Am I right? Speaking of the fall time, these means fall collaborations! I have some amazing fall collaborations coming your way but this one you guys I am super stoked to discuss and share with you! I recently reached out to an amazing Canadian company called, “Arrow It Forward”, and they specialize in home fragrances (can you say yummmm?!) If you guys know me well enough you know that I can never have enough pumpkin smelling things in my room or fall scents for that matter! The more the merrier! I was thrilled when Emily Prout, owner of Arrow It Forward, got back to me and wanted to collab together!
Let’s meet the Maker!
Emily Prout is the proud owner of the Canadian brand “Arrow It Forward”, as she makes all of her products right from her home, which might I add is in Ontario (proud supporter of Canadian brands, you go girl!). She lives with her husband and her two children who work together in this family business. Emily loves to show off her creative side in the work she does and trust me…. does she do a heck of a good job at that! She states that she pushed herself out of her comfort zone which I absolutely adore and admire! She makes strong connections with her audience and following and loves to really connect with the ways she describes each of her products. BEAUTS… just wait until you hear the titles and sayings that go along with each product, they are absolutely AMAZING… I was hooked! If the scents were not enough for you to be obsessed with the sayings on the products will grab your attention!
About the Products!
On the website “Arrow It Forward”, there are so many amazing and stunning products to take a peek at! If you are looking for soy candles, soy wax melts, reusable car air fresheners ( yes I did just say that!!), or even linen and room sprays you are in the right place! Sometimes, I find that certain fragrance brands are lacking really strong scents! I mean guys, if I grab an autumn breeze candle I want to literally feel like I’m walking for a beautiful fall path with crispy leaves crunching under my boots & the crisp air in my face. I can absolutely assure you guys you will not be disappointed in the scents of these products, hands down! The fragrances smell so amazing I can’t even deal! Shall we get into some of the products?
“SO BASIC Reusable Car Air Freshener”- First off, I never thought a car air freshener could look cute but this obviously proves me wrong! I am adoring the colours that were implemented into these! I don’t know about you guys but I like my car to look cute, yes I am that basic girl, so this I am absolutely digging! The car air fresheners come pre-scented which is amazing, and if you need the scent to be touched up, simply spray the linen/room spray on it which I will mention for you below! This retails on her website for $7.50!
“SALTY AF Bath Soak”– This magnesium chloride bath soak is unreal! This product is scented with totally validating ADULTING IS HARD blend, and might I add the scent is to die for. When I opened up this package, the scent just lifted into the air! I absolutely adore the name of this product, I think that is just the cutest ever. Simply pour entire contents under running water and “let some of your saltiness go down the drain!”. This product however is not intended for children but hey…. adults need to de-stress whenever we get the chance to! There is also another bath soak as well if you want to try that one out too which is called “MOM’S SALTY”…. love it! This product retails on her website for only $6.00!

You get six cubes in a package for only $6.00!
“… a cozy blend of warm blankets and quiet afternoons”
“SO BASIC Room and Linen Spray”- BEAUTS.… I am absolutely living for this fine mist spray! I can not emphasize enough through words how beautiful the scent is! I am literally spraying pumpkins galore on my sheets and in my room, which I absolutely adore. You can never have too many pumpkin smelling items ever! This is a 4 oz pump that you can spray in your room, on your pillows or even on your sheets!

“ …a seasonal blend of apple cider and shameless selfies”
So now that you guys have seen a sneak peek at some of the goodies located on the website I wanted to share a neat fact about the company and what it was named after! The name “Arrow It Forward”, came from two concepts! First, the concept of pay it forward, and secondly, a quote which relates to the arrow. What caught my attention was the meaning behind the arrow which states, “ an arrow can only be shot by pulling it backward. When life is dragging you back with difficulties, it means it’s going to launch you into something great. So just focus and keep aiming”. I absolutely adore this meaning behind the arrow and that is actually why I have an arrow tattooed on my spine believe it or not! I am a firm believer of this and absolutely adore the reason behind this company name! Way to go Emily! I want to personally thank Emily Prout for allowing me to collaborate with her amazing company “Arrow It Forward”! Be sure to check out her Instagram handle “@arrowitforward”, as her website is located in her bio! Let me know if you beauts try out some of her products! I highly recommend trying out the ones I did, and I for sure will be ordering some more when I run out!

Hey there my beautiful souls! Welcome to my channel if you are new! If you are a returning soul then welcome back, I am so happy you are visiting again! I have been so busy recently, it’s been insane! I just came back from a 7-day cruise and it was to die for, an absolutely beautiful experience which was much needed. I am, however, slowly trying to get back into reality and back into my routine.
I just came back to Canada on Saturday, so I have been trying to organize my life again and get back into the grind. That being said, I am pleased to share with you beauts a super exciting collaboration that I have been working on and partnered up with this fall season. I could not be any happier to be part of this fall collaboration for such a unique company! The fact that I absolutely adore working and connecting with new companies is an understatement, but to work on a fall collaboration is super exciting in itself! I truly want to get back into the routine and grind of blogging again, and what better way to start it back off then doing a collaboration for you beauts!
About the Company
I reached out to this wonderful company called, “Southern Jones”, and was super stoked when they had chosen me to be apart of their fall collaboration this year! This beautiful company specializes in uniquely designed mugs, which may I add…. are absolutely breathtaking. These stunning mugs are designed by Etsy store owner Cami Jones, who lives in Little Rock, Arkansas. She runs her small company in her laundry room at home, enjoying lake weekends, lazy nights at home and travel occasionally.
About the Mugs
The designs on the mugs are to die for you guys! I was completely overwhelmed and shocked at how many gorgeous and unique designs there were! You can also suggest custom mug ideas that you may have on your mind as well! If you head on over to her Etsy shop, link located in her Instagram bio, simply fill out the custom order questionnaire and you are all set! If you are that basic fall girl, that one who adores plaid scarves, fall hats, oversized sweaters and pumpkin everything…you will absolutely ADORE her fall mug collection! I was head over heels excited to have the opportunity to show off one of her fall mugs to you beauts! May I remind you as well that the ink located on both sides of the mug are permanent, so no need to worry about your design accidentally coming off! Phew!
What I love about Cami’s Instagram page is that you get a “behind the scenes” look at how she does her mug process which is super neat! Did I also mention that Cami has her own blogging channel too? I love it! I honestly love meeting other bloggers from around the world and reading their articles! Be sure to take a peek at her located on her Etsy page.
I don’t know about you beauts but I am literally a mug addict hardcore. I hate any boring mugs and I simply do not own any in my home! I love waking up in the morning time, getting all ready, and going to grab a nice hot cup of pumpkin coffee in of course a pretty mug! Why not grab a snazzy fall mug while you’re at it and complete the whole fall vibe?! The one mug that I received is by far my favourite one out of her fall collection but trust me, there are some high top threes that’s for sure! All of her designs are so unique and super cute! The prices of her mugs range around $23.14 which is a great deal, especially the high quality of the cups and designs you receive! If you are looking for wedding mugs for a bridal party or simply want to grab a mug for your grandma or mom she has some for you! Are you a dog mom like myself and simply want to have your pooch on your mug? She has adorable dog mugs too that are on her Etsy shop! I am telling you guys if you haven’t checked out her amazing shop you are missing out!
The mug that I received in the mail from Southern Jones’ fall collection for 2019 was the “Sweater Weather” mug. This one stood out to me right away because the design was way too stinking cute! I thought the whole look was classy and I am for sure an oversized sweater type of gal when it comes to the fall season! Nothing like being cute & cosy all at the same time, am I right?!
I want to give a huge thank you to Southern Jones for allowing me to collaborate with your amazing company, you are amazing! If you beauts are fall lovers like myself or just love mugs, in general, you will adore these designs, highly recommend checking out her Etsy store and Instagram page! You can follow her on Instagram at “@shopsouthernjones”.
I hope you beauts have a wonderful week! It’s the start to a fresh new one so make it count! Sending all those positive and cosy vibes your way always! Remember, it will be a great week if you want it to be!
Hello, my gorgeous beauts! I know what you guys are obviously thinking, “Alyssa, where the hell have you been on here, you have been completely MIA!”. Yes, I am quite aware that I have been gone from WordPress for quite some time, mostly have been focusing on my new YouTube Channel which you can find under “Alyssa Hotrum”, be sure to come take a peek! I have only uploaded a few videos so far as I am currently planning what ones to do in the near future & what days to post! That being said, I can’t wait for you guys to start this journey with me and I can’t wait to bring you beauts along! Be sure to subscribe to my channel for more videos to come! Thanks for all the love & support so far guys, you truly are amazing and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me!
I have really missed blogging a lot and I am so glad to get back into the swing of things that’s for sure! I guess you can say in the winter time, it’s hard to find that motivation to get started again when somedays you just want to snuggle up in bed! But I have finally found the motivation again and I couldn’t be happier! I recently collaborated with a beautiful company on Instagram called, “I Shop Jewlery“, and their Instagram handle is “@shopilovejewlery“. I reached out to this company because their page completely sparked my interest. I love companies that offer a variety of products, especially unique products. One of the things that stood out to me about this company was their “personalized clothing“, which I thought was so neat! I had to reach out to this company right away and see if they were interested in collaborating!
I was ecstatic to hear that they were interested in collaborating with me on their Valentines Day items! I kept in contact with one of the store owners, Kaitlyn, who was extremely welcoming, nice and so generous! I could not wait to receive my package in the mail & was so excited to see what I had gotten! When the package came in the mail, I was in shock at how gorgeous these products were in real life and at how generous the company was. I mean, I knew all the products on the website were stunning, but looking at them in real life & wearing them…. just WOW. I am for sure one of those girls that love dressing up for special holidays & occasions, especially Valentines Day! I was stunned at how many beautiful personalized Valentines Day items there were!
I am super excited to show you beauts the “Monobox” that I received in which you can join this monthly subscription for only $21.95 which is unreal. The Monobox includes three mystery items: one monogrammed item, & two fabulous surprise items ( could potentially be earrings, necklaces etc..). You guys will not be disappointed that’s for sure! The packaging was super adorable and so cute! I even received a personalized note with the package which was super thoughtful and sweet! In the Monobox I received a super cute heart shirt with my initials on the bottom, a heart cup and a heart necklace!
(I seriously can not get over how adorable this heart top is…. like come on! Simply paired it with a red scrunchie & red sunnies to match of course!)
(Ps… this cup makes the perfect wine glass… just saying!)
(I literally wear this necklace with everything! It’s super chic and pretty much goes with a bunch of cute outfits!)
Now onto the Swag Bag! I still can not get over how cute all these products are! I received these super comfy “Sweetheart Swag Bag Pants!“. Beauts…. BEAUTS… these are by far the cutest lounge pants ever, & are perfect for Valentine’s Day coming up! Right now it’s a monthly subscription for only $10.00 guys! What the heck! You will receive one personalized clothing item per month which is fantastic! I am loving my heart pants, and yes they do have my initials on the top of them which is super cute! Love it!
(I honestly can not get enough of these pants Beauts!)
I highly highly highly recommend checking out their website and Instagram handle if you have not already! Literally, want to buy absolutely everything! Sign me up! I want to personally thank “I Love Jewlery” for collaborating with me & allowing me to blog for you beauts! You guys are absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to see what new products in the future you guys come out with! Be sure to come spread some love on their page and give them a follow! Also be sure to follow my other social media accounts located on my home page for more collaborations & blogs in the near future!
Goodmorning my beauts, I hope all is going well and you guys are having a fantastic week so far! I can’t believe that it is already Thursday like what the heck this week flew by! I have been busy with work, and taking care of our puppy while my family is on vacation for two weeks. I am enjoying the peace and quiet to say the least but it does get lonely some days, especially when your pet doesn’t talk back to you! I hope my family is having a great time on their cruise! How has your week been guys? Recently my boyfriend and I have been really busy with collaborations lately, especially with a beautiful company I found on Instagram called, “Noloco Apparel“. This company caught our attention, ever since I have incorporated men’s fashion onto my blogging channel. Like I have mentioned previously, my boyfriend works in finance and is always wearing suits to work all the time, so he is always on the constant lookout for new fashion statement pieces like bowties and ties especially. We came across this company a bit ago, and were hooked on their pieces! I knew I had to reach out to them right away. Honestly, they were such an amazing company to speak to, very friendly and so down to earth as well. They were more than happy to collaborate with my boyfriend and I! I was super excited to be working with this new company that I came across, and could not wait to start the journey!
I was very anxious, patiently waiting for the package to arrive in the mail, and we could begin to start modelling the products and blogging. My boyfriend Dayten was super excited once the package came in, and we got working! It has taken us a bit to post this blog post because sometimes life just gets in the way at points, so I do want to take the time to thank the company for being patient and understanding, you guys are amazing.
So I know you beauts are dying to know a little bit about the company and what not right? The company is based in Oslo, Norway which is pretty neat! I love finding companies to work with all across the world, it’s so intriguing to me, to say the least! This company provides accessories to freshen up any man’s suit. The company states, “as a wedding photographer, I see a lot of different men’s accessories for suits. The thing is, I have been looking for something different that stands out for a long time, but I could not find any ties, bowties, handkerchiefs of my taste. That’s why I came up with the idea to solve the problem myself and started looking for some different and cool accessories to match with our suits, that are good looking and affordable”. I love this, and I was immediately hooked on their page! There were so many wonderful products to look at! When we received our package, we were so excited! Dayten received the package called, “Ladies Choice” which includes a beautiful tie, bowtie and handkerchief. I could not get over how stunning the collection was, and it had a beautiful and stunning design on it! This gorgeous set retails in store for $65.00 which is great considering you get three items in the package set!
I want to personally take the time to thank Noloco Apparel for allowing me to collaborate with them and their amazing company! Dayten has received so many compliments at work from his gorgeous accessories! I highly recommend checking out their Instagram page at “noloco.store”, as well as their website at “http://www.noloco.store”. Thank you guys for being amazing and offering so many beautiful products! Be sure to follow my other social media sites located on my homepage for more blog posts to come in the near future! Have an amazing rest of your week, take care!
Hi my beauts, and welcome to my channel if you are new! Hello, my name is Alyssa and I completely apologize if I have been MIA lately, a lot has been happening over the past month! I have been working nonstop, and I am learning how to balance work and blogging altogether. I promise I will be back into my normal blogging routine again soon! I just have to get a routine down pat and stick to it, which I am still trying to figure out. The weather also has not been the greatest for taking pictures, unfortunately! Also, I am now limited to take my photographs on the weekends now as opposed to throughout the week like I used to do. I am now living in my hometown out in the country and not living in Hamilton anymore. I love it out in the country, it is so peaceful and I get to see all my family members out here which is awesome. I want to take the time to thank companies I have recently been collaborating with for their patience and understanding, you guys are amazing and bless you! I hope you guys have been doing well and everything! I miss you all so much and can not wait to show you the companies I have been working with lately. One company that caught my attention a while back on Instagram was a company called, “Fairly Local Apparel”. I found and came across this company while browsing on Instagram one day, and what caught my attention was their clothing and t-shirts. I am a very simple girl, I do not like over the top t-shirts at all, I love ones that are stylish, simple, and ones that you can style in many different ways. I decided to reach out to this wonderful company, inquiring about a potential collaboration. They were more than happy to collaborate with me, and I was stoked!
Fairly Local Apparel’s goal for their company is to design a brand that fits your style which I adore. They are urban fashion, with unique and an artistic make to their clothing. They are a small local company founded in 2016 and is based out of Cincinnati, Ohio. They always strive for the best quality, customer service and they guarantee 100% satisfaction.
I could not wait to receive my package in the mail and see my t-shirt! When the package came in, the material of the shirt was excellent quality, and I absolutely loved the colour red, made the shirt really stand out. I received the “Red Striped Tee” which retails for $15.99. I absolutely love my shirt, it is super comfortable, and I literally wear it to work all the time. I have worn this shirt with leggings, jean shorts, ripped jeans and my jean skirt which can be seen in the pictures on this page. There are so many other clothing pieces that you can purchase as well which are adorable!
I want to personally take the time to thank Fairly Local Apparel for allowing me to collaborate with their amazing company, you guys are awesome and it was an absolute pleasure working with you guys! Again thank you for your patience! I absolutely love my shirt and wear it ALL the time. If you guys have not checked out their Instagram page I highly recommend checking them out! Their Instagram page is “fairlylocalclothing”, be sure to come spread some love! Also, check out their website over at http://www.fairlylocalapparel.com“.

Good morning my beauts, and welcome to my blogging channel if you are new! Welcome and I am so pleased and blessed to have you stop by! I know what some of you guys are wondering, “where the hell have I been?!“. I just started my new job as a daycare teacher about a week ago, and have been focusing on that, trying to divide my time and spread it out evenly. I want to take the time to thank the companies I have recently been collaborating with for their patience and understanding, you guys are awesome and I apologize for the delay and wait! The past two weeks have been so hectic for me, trying to organize my room since I moved back home with my mom in our old town. I have to say, it’s quite the change from the big city of Hamilton that’s for sure! I absolutely love it here though, it’s so peaceful and quiet, love it. Recently I found a wonderful and rad company on Instagram called “Team Insane” Clothing. Their Instagram Page grabbed my attention right away and I had to reach out to them! They were more than happy to do a collaboration with me, and I was super excited! I could not wait to receive my package in the mail! Right away I loved how simple their clothing was, but it was stylish and fashionable at the same time. The companies’ mission is to provide the highest quality designs and materials in innovative varieties at the best value.
I received three beautiful shirts in the mail which I absolutely adore. I received two t-shirts, one in the colour grey and one in black as well as a tank top in the colour grey. What I adore about all of these shirts is you can style them with so many different outfits. For this photoshoot, I wanted a more grungy feel for the look, so I simply paired the shirts with a pair of ripped shorts and some converse. I have also worn these shirts to the gym as well, and have gotten so many compliments on them! The first shirt I am going to show you beauts is the “Insane Flowy Side Slit Tank” in the colour grey which retails for $24.99 but is on sale for $13.99 right now which is amazing! Guys… GUYS I can not express how comfortable this tank is, I wear it everywhere and I mean everywhere. It is so breezy, stylish and comfortable all at the same time. What I love about this tank is that if you want to choose another colour or style for the logo simply let the company know in the checkout notes, as there are other colours to choose from.
The next item I have to show you guys and rave about are the two shirts called, “Women’s Relaxed Insane Jersey Short Sleeve”, which retails for $18.99 on sale now for $12.99, again another great deal! I got mine in the colour black and grey. I love neutral colours as they are easier to style and match with other pieces of clothing. Again, another extremely comfortable top to wear, love it. Can I just say I love the font of the logo as well, it looks wicked! Love it.
I want to personally take the time to thank Team Insane Clothing for allowing me to collaborate with such a rad and insane company, you guys are amazing and wonderful to work with. I absolutely love my shirts and love wearing them, I highly recommend checking out their Instagram page at “@teaminsane415“, and check out their website at http://www.teaminsaneapparel.com. Their shirts are so comfortable and stylish at the same time! Come spread some love over on their site, and also be sure to follow my other social media sites to stay updated with my latest blog posts as well. I hope you beauts enjoyed this blog post and take care! Much love xo.
Goodmorning my beauts, and welcome to my lovely channel! I hope you all are having a fabulous start to your weekend so far! I know I am so happy it’s the weekend and always enjoy my Fridays and Saturdays! Any big plans for the weekend? I am currently going to be hanging out with the boyfriend and his family. I will be taking some more pictures for upcoming blog posts in the near future as well. I am so blessed to have a boyfriend that loves taking my pictures, it’s like I have my own personal photographer which is amazing. He is so good at it too, loves experimenting with different angles, and I am so blessed. He is awesome. I am really excited about this collaboration that I am involved with presently. I have honestly been into healing gems, gems that help with anxiety or even energy as well. I found an amazing company on Instagram called, “Zen Healing Gems“, and reached out to them, inquiring if they would like to collaborate with me on a blog post. I spoke to the founder of the company, Kayla, and inquired about the potential collaboration. She was very pleasant to speak to, very kind, and welcoming as well. You can actually learn a lot from someone over messaging! Kayla was more than happy to collaborate on a blog post with me, and I was super excited. Her work is amazing, and I was super excited to write a blog post on her and her company.
I got to know a little bit more about Kayla and her company. Kayla lives with her fiance and her doggy in Lancaster, PA. She is an old soul and a free spirit, she loves music, yoga, crystals, dancing, essential oils, icecream, burritos, her puppy, and getting outdoors. She really likes tattoos, and personally has six herself which is amazing. Every one of her tattoos are special to her and has their own meaning. Kayla also loves making jewlery as it is very therapeutic to her, as well as healing for her. Working wih crysals creates positive vibes and cleanses her space. In the next year, Kayla would like to travel more and build her business by doing more events/shows and creating more sales on her etsy shop. Kayla has been running her business, “Zen Healing Gems” for two years. She sttarted making jewlery a little over three years ago and two years ago was when she knew she wanted to make a business out of it. Kayla was very passionate about creating and loved the idea of carrying the crystals with you as a wearable art. Kayla makes the jewlery by herself, enjoying every second of it!
I received two bracelets in the mail from Kayla and they are absolutely stunning. I love healing crystals and love learning about the healing behind the gems. The one bracelet is Sodalite, which is deeply connected to the heat, and creates a calming effect which makes inner peace easier to attain. The black crystal in both the bracelets is Black Onyx which is great for grounding and protection as well as wards of negative energy. The bright blue bracelet is Imperial Jasper, which has amazing healing and protection energies as well as reduces fears and insecurities. I love learning about this kind of stuff, it is so fascinating to me and I adore it. Healing crystals and gems are new to me, so I love learning new information. I picked out these two bracelets because I loved the look and colour, I was drawn to them!
You can get ahold of Kayla if you would like to order something by messaging her on her Instagram at “zen_healing_gems”. You can also check out her etsy store as well which is located in her bio on Instagram. Also you can message her on Facebook or through email as well. Kayla absolutely loves doing custom orders as some of her favourite pieces have come from custom orders! This is amazing. Highly highly recommend checking out Kayla and her beautiful company. Be sure to come spread some love on her social media sites and check out her etsy shop, it’s adorable! I want to personally take the time to thank Kayla and her company Zen Healing Gems for allowing me to collaborate with such a beautiful company. She is so talented and really knows what she is doing which is fantastic. I wish you nothing but the best Kayla on your future endeavors! You were wonderful and so amazing to work with.
