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 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!
