Today is a special day of celebration, as it is my 23rd birthday! This day encourages me to examine how far I have come, what I have learnt in the past year and to pursue goals that I have not yet had time for. This year I have really started to dress more sustainably and lead a more minimal lifestyle – and I am very proud of myself for that. My goals for this upcoming year are to buy less, buy used, buy better and only buy items made from natural materials.
This year my celebration is a little more glamorous, as I was gifted this beautiful rose gold bracelet from Paris Jewellers. Paris Jewellers is a Canadian luxury jewellery retail brand that is co-owed by two sisters. Nothing quite like the inspiration of these successful women to motivate me to accomplish my goals!

A few years ago, I did not own any rose gold jewellery, however in this past year I have grown very fond of rose gold. Rose gold is such a soft and warm colour, which makes it flattering on every skin tone. I like how this bracelet has a dainty adjustable drawstring, perfect for my petite wrists. It also sparkles brilliantly and adds eye-catching detail to any outfit.
Thank you Paris Jewellers for adding some glam to my birthday celebration! Find this bracelet and many more beautiful pieces at Paris Jewellers, located in Midtown Plaza and Lawson Heights Mall.

I am continually searching for a lust for life – things that inspire me and motivate me to continue on with my journey. I am constantly wondering which path to wander down and which road to follow…. life is confusing at best, however learning what makes me excited to be alive is where I have tried to put the majority of my energy and flourish in. Bringing vintage items alive again and purchasing items secondhand is one way I am able to satisfy the desire to be a more sustainable blogger. Here’s to you in finding your lust for life.

This is my new favourite go-to outfit and I think I love it so much because these jeans were my mother’s jeans in the early 1990s! I paired them with this incredibly soft cashmere sweater I found at Value Village (thrifted is always best), as well as with some neutral accessories. These boots always remind me of Stevie Nicks.

I have indeed been on an unexpected journey, which has left me with little time to blog, but I’m back, baby! I picked this shirt up at the Regina Expo, right after I met Sean Astin – it’s truly one of my favourite shirts. Sure, I love fashion, but you better believe that I love Tolkien and LOTR much more!
