Loving My Pretty Blue Eyes with Lenscircle! #lenscircle #colourcontacts

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I'm in my mid thirties and I've worn glasses as well as contact lenses for quite a number of years. I got my first pair back in the mid 90's in high school, and they sure have changed throughout the years. I still remember my first pair, having to clean them every day, whereas now I usually go for the disposable. I have dark brown eyes and have always wondered what I would look like if I had lighter eyes. I had the opportunity to work with the company called Lenscircle... which is a company that carries a wide range of contact lenses.

There's so many pretty colors and styles to choose from, however, I ended up going with one of their prescription colored lenses. I've tried color lenses before in the past, but always found that with my dark brown eyes, it was hard for the color to show. I tried the Angel Circle Lenses in the colour blue! The way that the blue is for these lenses, is that they actually have a color combo. A beautiful blend of unique tones of blue in one lens to create a subtle, natural looking eye.

My Daughter is Finally Christened: Love Her #WhiteDress #MariaCommunion #KidsFashion

My daughter is just a little over 16 months old, and I can't believe how quickly she's growing. It seems like just yesterday she was born, and was so tiny in my arms. I look back at all the photos that I've taken along the way, and I don't know where the time has gone. I have a huge collection of photos on my phone and on social media, and I just can't seem to get enough. I've become one of those parents that snap a photo for pretty much anything, and sharing it with family and friends.

Since time passes so fast, it wasn't until recently that I was able to have my daughter christened. My partner and I had been trying for almost half a year, but the requirements of the church was quite complicated. It took us that long to come up with the proper documents for the godmother and godfather, that she was over a year old when it was finally completed. I think the best part of the whole ordeal was the purchasing of the beautiful baptism and white communion dresses, and the excitement of getting her dressed up.

The Perfect Gifts For the Holiday via #UNICEF #Holidaygiftguide2016

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I'm born and raised in Canada, but I have to say I've always had a love for other parts of the world. I love living in Canada and being Canadian, and have a love for all types of art. I guess you can say I'm a bit of a dreamer, and wish to someday travel the world to enjoy a wider range of art. I have been working with an awesome website for a number of years now, which is a site that showcases artists from around the world, and you're able to purchase their art: NOVICA. They are in association with National Geographic, and everyone has heard of them! There's also another site powered by NOVICA and that's the UNICEF Market... which is a similar site like the others, however, their mission is to save and protect children from around the world.

The site features artists from around the world: Andes, Bali and Java, Brazil, Central America, India, Mexico, Thailand, and West Africa. By purchasing from NOVICA or UNICEF Market, you're helping those smaller companies and artists that may not have that much money. They sell all kinds of items that would make for perfect gifts... women's robes, sarongs, floral bracelets, sterling silver filigree earrings, and much more! I personally have a love for anything unique, that would be hard to find anywhere. I like decor items that make for excellent conversation starters, and I love adding to my collection. What I love about both sites, is that you're able to create and share collections to your friends... almost like a wishlist. Create your collection on the UNICEF Market site, and you have a chance to win a trip for 2 to Machu Picchu with Smithsonian Journeys!

My Daugher and I Love the #NextGenerationColoringBooks by Painting Lulu

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I have always been a creative type of person, and it started at an early age. My mother had me involved in so many things growing up... stuff like skating, dancing, Brownies and Girl Guides, playgroups, and enrolled me into an arts school. Even though I already had many years of tap and jazz, I ended up auditioning for visual arts... my mother was creative, and I had picked up the same gene. Even though I don't find much time to draw or paint anymore, I still manage to enjoy the odd colouring fest. Yes, I'm not embarrassed to say I love colouring, and I recently introduced my daughter to it. With her being only 15 months, when we colour together I'm partially afraid of her colouring the apartment instead of the colouring book. I recently came across a Paper-to-digital Colouring book by Painting Lulu, which has saved me hours of trying to remove crayons or markers from a surface.

If this is the case for you, this article may save the day. You can use the information and instructions found below to get on the road to an optimized appearance immediately:

1. Eat Well.

Many people are surprised to find that, in addition to helping their bodies function optimally, eating the right foods improves their appearance as well. In addition to facilitating weight loss and weight management, healthy foods promote clear skin by optimizing the body's ability to remove toxins quickly and correctly. There are hundreds of ways that you can work healthy foods into your daily diet. An example would be purchasing a juicer and making a daily drink comprised of delicious fruits and vegetables like kale, apples, spinach, pineapple, and oranges. Another yummy option you may want to consider is a trail mix comprised of healthy fats like almonds and cashews along with dried cranberries and raisins.
