By now you’ve probably heard of escape rooms. It’s an adventure game where participants are locked in a room for 45 minutes and have to figure out how to escape by putting together clues and solving puzzles to find the final key to escape.
When I was pregnant I remember hearing “breastfeeding is the hardest thing you’ll have to do,” over and over on websites, in books and from other moms. I didn’t understand how something so natural could be so hard and I kind of scoffed at the thought of people giving up after breastfeeding after a few weeks or some not even trying at all.
Most of you may not know this, but I wear glasses. As someone who is constantly on the computer or staring at my phone, my eyesight has been in the decline for the past few years so I rely on glasses when I am working on my latest blog post. Plus, sometimes a great pair of glasses can be the perfect accessory to finish up a look, am I right fashionistas? Glasses are no longer something “four eyes” need to be ashamed about. With tons of designer frames out there, glasses have the ability to compliment your look and even bring a fashionable edge to your appearance.
Shopping for the man in your life, whether that’s your husband, boyfriend, dad, brother or bff, can sometimes be the most challenging part of holiday shopping. When in doubt, I always say go back to the basics. Staple pieces are perfect for the man in your life because they are timeless, useful and he is bound to love it. Check out my favourite gift ideas this year, a few of which I may have even already purchased.
One of my favourite posts to work on is my annual holiday gift guide (you can see past ones here and here). What makes my holiday gift guides a bit different from those on the web is that I place a focus on shopping local. As someone who has dabbled in their own businesses, I know how hard it can be to have a small business and to get your name out there. There are so many people in our own cities pouring their hearts and souls into their businesses and churning out some pretty amazing and unique products. This year I am highlighting six local businesses to help you get a jump start on holiday shopping.
