What defines “Happiness?”My Collaboration with “Happiness Is Inc”

Good morning beautiful souls! I hope you all are doing absolutely fabulous and having a great start to your week so far! I know things have been kinda hectic these few months with everything that has been going on, but it is so important to always check in with yourself as well as others. I know this can be a complete rollercoaster for individuals who suffer from a mental illness, myself included. To be quite honest, my anxiety has been up and down, somedays are way better than others and you know what? That’s okay. It’s okay to acknowledge that these are difficult situations we all have to go through, it’s out of routine, it’s out of normality. We have to make the best out of this situation and that is that. What has helped me tremendously is staying busy nonstop. This helps to preoccupy my mind, keep me moving and gives me something to do each day so I am not sitting there constantly thinking about when things return back to “normal”. Sometimes, this can be as little as planning a day where you are going to wash your makeup brushes and clean out underneath your bed. It could be organizing your room or finally sitting down and going through your closet. There are so many things to do, you just have to explore your options. Make a list. Make a list of things you want to get done each day! That way, you feel more accomplished and productive with your day. This is what I do, and it really helps me stay on track and plan better. On the topic of staying busy, it is so important to incorporate self care into your day. Again, the self care routines are endless as there are so many options out there. What makes you happy and feel good? Finding what works for you, puts your mind at ease and helps your brain unwind is key. Everyone’s self care routine is different, there is no right or wrong way. Tune into yourself, explore and find what you enjoy. Finding what you enjoy doing will put you in a great mood and bring you so much happiness!

“Happiness is…”

Happiness is everything and that is why I am so excited to be collaborating with this amazing clothing company called, “Happiness Is Inc.”. You beauts know I am all about positivity on my feed and blogging channel, especially during these hard times. These times are difficult and I truly find so much joy when I am scrolling through social media and something upbeat shows up. I don’t think I could’ve collaborated with a better company! Happiness Is Inc is a casual clothing company that inspires gratitude, connection and happiness. I simply love everything about this company, from they stand for, promote and help shed positive light on something that can he hard for some individuals to find. This company takes into consideration life’s struggles, fast-paced environment including stressful situations. Gorden Carton, at 95 years old, founded this beautiful company. He wanted individuals to find happiness within themselves and I absolutely adore that. He knew that it was impossible to have a lifetime of happiness but having the gratitude towards what makes us smile, and through the amazing connections we have with people around us, we can all be more happier. This is so true, I simply could not agree more! He knew that happiness is contagious and I am a strong believer of that myself. Sadly, Gorden passed away in the year of 2017, but his legacy lives on through his granddaughter, Andrea Armstrong. This amazing company strives on making high quality and casual/athletic clothing that brings a smile to your face when you put it on!

One thing I love about this company is that they are Canadian! You beauts know I am a huge supporter of Canadian companies! Their clothing pieces are made from biodegradable certified organic cotton and bamboo which is amazing. They have a wide range of sayings when it comes to their clothing company. Each article of clothing states “Happiness is….” and offers a variety of different sentences! This company has women, men and children’s clothing, so a little something for the whole family! Seriously guys… they have the cutest sayings ever that will make you smile in a heartbeat. They have a phrase that fits well with everyone!

I was so fortunate to be gifted this stunning, “Happiness is Morning Coffee” crewneck sweater. I think this completely defines me to a t! I absolutely love my coffee! I am always looking forward to my morning coffee, it is truly something that makes me happy all the time and is something I look forward to each day! I tell you, it really is the little things in life that are the best. It doesn’t take much to make me happy, I really do cherish the tiny moments life has to offer each day. This sweater retails online for $89.95, and comes in either ballet pink (what I received) or in charcoal. This is a crew neck sweater which I adore so so much! The material is super comfortable, stretchy and cozy! I always crack a smile and feel unreal when I am wearing this! Be sure to check out all of the other sayings on the shirts as well, way too cute! Some of the different categories you can explore are active lifestyles, on the water, moments of value and fun, as well as happy places. Lots to choose from that’s for sure!

“It’s the little things in life…”

So I am going to ask you beauts, what is happiness to you? What truly makes you smile and feel great? It’s so important to take that time to yourself and ask yourselves this question. I have come up with a small list of things that make me happy to share with you guys!

  1. Happiness is morning coffee
  2. Happiness is reading a great book that you can’t put down
  3. Happiness is grabbing Starbucks and exploring Indigo for hours
  4. Happiness is finding a pair of distressed jeans that fit amazing
  5. Happiness is giving your boyfriend the biggest hug when you haven’t seen him all week
  6. Happiness is getting a family picture of your 3 sisters altogether
  7. Happiness is grabbing your boyfriend’s hand when your walking on a crisp evening
  8. Happiness is looking up at the stars and seeing them fill the sky
  9. Happiness is sitting in the hot tub with your pumpkin tea listening to Owl City
  10. Happiness is remembering to turn on your fairy lights as you soak in the tub

Happiness is everywhere. Find what makes you happy….big or small. I want to personally thank Happiness Is Inc for allowing me to collaborate with their beautiful and inspiring company. I love everything they do, what they are about, and the the pieces of clothing they have to offer. So many amazing sayings and things to be happy about. Be sure to follow this company on Instagram at “@happinessisinc” as well as check out their website at “www.happinessisinc.com”. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week and keep on smiling!

My Collaboration with “Bloom & Blossom”

Good morning beautiful souls, welcome to my channel if you are new! Or, welcome back if you are returning! So happy to have you back! So I know it hasn’t been the most easiest couple of weeks that’s for sure. Whether you are practicing social distancing, in self-isolation or even quarantined… it’s not fun or easy. I know this comes with a lot of brainstorming! If you are a momma, this calls for keeping your kiddos entertained all day, which I am not a parent myself but I will not judge you if that cup of coffee secretly has some baileys in it, just saying! I give you so much credit and together, we will get through this. I truly believe in the importance of empowering individuals during these crazy times and giving out a bit more extra love than usual. We are all in this together.

On my channel, whether it be on my blogging site or on my Instagram feed, I always try to keep everything more upbeat and positive. I have always been the more optimistic type, but trust me, I don’t shit rainbows and butterflies if that is what you think! I have my days but for the most part, I love providing unique, fresh, upbeat and positive content for you to view! During these tough times, I am going to be on my A game 110%! I am way way WAY beyond excited to share this wonderful collaboration that I was so honored to be apart of! So, without further or due, shall we jump right in?!

When it comes to Spring Time, I always love a couple of things. First, a pretty good spring outfit of course, second, some cute spring accessories. But, there is something missing if I do say so myself. Since I am always pretty much carrying around a drink with me at ALL times……. what if your drink could look hella fashionable!? Would you be down? I sure would be! That is why I can not wait to share this amazing company I was so fortunate to partner with for this collaboration! I partnered with this amazing company called, “Bloom & Blossom”! They provide a whole bunch of adorable and unique products on their website involving CUTE sayings! From ceramic mugs, crew neck sweaters, decals, tumblr mugs, you name it! When I say this company has the cutest sayings, I mean…….they are STINKING CUTE!

I absolutely love the name “Bloom & Blossom!” and I wanted to know how owner and creator, Kennedy Stanton, came up with it! Kennedy states, “It took me quite some time to find a name. I didn’t want something cheesy I wanted something light, pretty and different. It’s a good reminder for me that we have to bloom & blossom in life to be who we are meant to be. I believe we do this over multiple phases within our life, remember we aren’t meant to be stagnant”. I absolutely LOVE this and the backstory behind this name. I am always so curious behind company names and I find this meaning beautiful. I seriously could not agree more with Kennedy’s thoughts behind this, so true & accurate!

I was also very curious as to how Kennedy started her lovely business, and what the process was like creating it! I have never owned a business myself so this really fascinates me! Kennedy shares that her work started as a hobby as she never actually had the intention of making it a company. She states, “Oddly enough the first item I sold was funny egg cartons with sayings on them. They blew up for me locally and I couldn’t keep enough in stock. Then I moved into apparel and people were buying those from me. They kept saying I needed to do this as a business. So finally I started my social media approx 9 months ago, my website 2 months ago and then incorporated in January of this year”. That is absolutely unreal and I am so proud of you! Who knew it would’ve started from egg cartons! That is amazing. Kennedy is a prime example that if you set your mind to it, you can do anything, just have to stick to it and keep going! Her business is so creative, and the sayings on her products are hilarious, cute, sweet and classy!

I was beyond excited when Kennedy wanted to collaborate with me! She had gifted me this beautiful Custom Tumblr which I seriously can not get enough of! I had always wanted my slogan on a mug/cup and this turned out AMAZING! BEAUTS…. when I received this in the mail I was blown away at how perfect it turned out, she did a beautiful job! Did I mention the colour is breath taking too! I received mine in a “Rose Gold” shade, and there are hints of sparkles in it as well, so stunning! She has so many colours and designs to choose from which I love. Her tumblr cups are safe for hot and cold liquids, stainless steel, and are 20 oz. These retail in store for around $20.00 which is amazing considering the quality of the product and how much detail she puts in! I am seriously going to be carrying this around with me EVERYWHERE, move over boring water bottles, this new fella is coming in to STAY. Some of the amazing colours that she has includes, “Matte Rosewood, Matte Blush, Matte Sea Glass, Matte Black, Matte Midnight and also Silver (they are all absolutely flawless and so aesthetically pleasing!). My product also came with care instructions as well which is always great to have, so you know how to properly take care of it!

I don’t know about you beauts, but I swear I live for products with adorable sayings on them such as mugs and cups. Each morning, when I go and grab my coffee I always have to make sure it is in a cute mug….am I a little extra? I swear this puts me in a great mood, starts my day off right, and also just makes me feel dang good, anyone else!? It’s all about the little things in life.

“They say good things take time, that’s why I’m always late!”

I have to say I am beyond proud of Kennedy for opening up this business and owning this herself! She makes everything, packages everything up, and still works full-time! Can you say GIRLBOSS or what!? She’s amazing, and so inspiring as well! You can clearly see all the hard work she puts into her company that’s for sure! Of course you can’t forget about her fiance who is her biggest cheerleader! Love that so much!

I want to personally take the time to thank her for allowing me to collaborate with her and this beautiful company! She truly is going places and can not wait what the future holds in store for her! I had an amazing time conducting this blog post and showing you beauts just one of her gorgeous products! If you beauts wish to check out some of her amazing products you can reach her on Instagram at “@bloom.n.blossom.designs” and you can check out her website at :https://bloomblossomdesigns.com/. Be sure to show some love & support by giving her a follow!

Take care beautiful souls, stay healthy & keep washing those hands!

I have been nonstop busy these past couple of weeks in regards to blogging, Christmas shopping and Christmas festivities! I love the holiday season for so many reasons! First, I love buying and picking out presents for loved ones. Second, I love spending time being cozy all snuggled up on the couch with the Christmas tree all lit up. Lastly, I love dressing up for holiday festivities! One thing for sure is you have to have a gorgeous pair of shoes to rock your outfit. I absolutely love fashion, and I love trying out new styles and putting new outfits together. One company that I simply can’t get enough of when it comes to footwear is “Vionic Canada”.

Let me just start off by asking one simple question… have you checked out their website yet!? There are shoes for every single occasion and they are all FLAWLESS. We are talking cozy slippers. dress shoes, running shoes, even cute pairs of booties! I was so fortunate to be gifted a pair of these Black Leather “Madeline Ankle Boots”.

There are three different colours and materials to choose from; black leather, chocolate leather, and Greige Suede. All the colours are to die for and the neutrals literally can go with any outfit!

“Good shoes take you good places”

These cute ankle boots can be paired with so many different outfits, but I am absolutely digging them with these black tights and leather jacket. These shoes are originally $249.95 but are currently on sale for $159.99! Like YES PLEASE!

The fact that there are size 11’s… I am on cloud nine!

My Collaboration with “Aqua Dreams Boutique”

Did someone say Glitter?!


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!

Can we just take a second to admire how gorgeous these pieces are!?

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 Earrings”

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!

Porcelain

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.

Honestly love a good statement piece! Who’s with me!?

“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!

I love anything Burgundy! I have always found this colour to be absolutely stunning!
All ready to go into town and grab my Starbucks! Can someone say Pumpkin Spiced Latte!

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!

This is by far one of my most favourite colours ever!
Simply add these to a plain white or black t-shirt and voila! You are killing it!

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!

Something about the colour burnt orange makes me feel so cozy inside!

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!

My Collaboration with “I Love Jewlery”!

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!

Take care & much love xo

My Collaboration with “Noloco Apparel”

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!
