Pretty in Pink

Sometimes winter feels like it lasts forever in Canada!
It's cold and snowy and gray which can put me in a mood (my mom say that's just me being me but I'm going to blame it on the weather, okay!) so I try to find ways to get myself out of my 'blue mood' (another one of my mothers sayings).
I make sure that I get enough sleep, drink plenty of water and try my best to stay away from junky food. The sugary stuff makes me feel good while I'm eating it I guess but I always feel rotten afterwards so when my head is on straight, I remember to say 'no thank you' before I shove it in my mouth.
One of the best ways I have found to keep me in a good mood is surrounding myself with colours that make me happy. Bright greens, sky blues, sunshine yellows and of course any shade of pink you can imagine!
Sometimes I try going head to toe in colours that make me smile. I make my bed with the brightest blanket I can find and top it off with a loud pink pillowcase. I pull out all my colourful pens and pencils and doodle to my hand hurts.
Other times, a pop of colour that only I can notice can do the trick, just like these adorable pink sunnies I permanently 'borrowed' from my mom. It's funny that something so small can make such a big difference in how you feel but I promise it works.
What do you do to keep your spirits up when the weather is bringing you down?

Happy New Year!
This is my first post this year and after a long holiday break enjoying hanging with my family and friends, I'm ready to rock 2017!
Santa was very good to me this year (thank you Mr. Claus!) but there were a few things that really left their mark on me like in a major way! My family has a tradition of doing a secret Kris Kringle where we pick a name and get a book for that person that we really think they will love. I still don't know who had my name but whoever it was, they got me this book from one of my fav Instagramers, the one and only Aimee Song. It's full of super good tips on how to find your A game on Instagram. It has already become something that I can never put down and have re-read like a million times!
Santa must have been listening to me read a magazine article to my mom about this facial scrub all the supermodels love, namely Gigi Hadid and her sister Bella because I found it poking out of my stocking on Christmas morning. The Hadid sisters have really gorgeous skin so I figure they must know something about what you should be slopping on your face.
And even though, this lip mask wasn't specifically meant for me, I couldn't control myself so I stole it from my mother but with good reason. My lips looked like they were ready to crumble off my face and since we still have a little more winter to look forward to (at least another 2 month!) I'm sure the mask will become my new best friend!
What are you excited about for 2017?
