Did you know I run a non profit? 
Well I do!
It is definitely in the beginning stages but we will see where God takes it.
I am a dreamer. A big dreamer!
I want to be used for kingdom business.
Nothing is more satisfying than helping someone who has less than you.
My heart burns for the homeless, the hurting, the unloved, the children. HUMANITY.
I love people. I see more. I see a soul.
The very soul that Jesus died for.
Not their worldly worth.
I see their who they are in the kingdom.

So if you are interested in finding out more about my heart, who I am and what I am trying to accomplish please check out

Carlet Edmonds Orange & Silver Office Redo

/ , ,

A few days ago I had a meeting for Carlet Edmonds. After the meeting Designer Marjie and I headed out to Homegoods, Marshalls and Ross to find some orange and silver accessories for her new office space. We had such a great time scouring all of my fave stores.


When I hit up my favorite stores (which are HomeGoods, TJMAXX, Ross, Target & Marshalls) I go straight to the clearance section. I can find AMAZING stuff for next to nothing sometimes. Just check out the cute Orange and white herringbone rug  that we scored in the clearance section!

We quickly created a gallery wall to her liking, added accessories, pillows and a rug and it's a start!

I've always loved Jillian Harris ever since the beginning of her Bachelor/Bachelorette debut. 
Not only did she have amazing style on the show but she also has AMAZING Interior Design Style!

I love every room that she designs. Her taste is very similar to mine.

I also love that her style is vintage, romantic, girly, soft and modern all mixed up into one giant amazeball.

Without further ado, here is a taste of her Vancouver home!

10 Beautifying & Delicious Detox Smoothie Recipes

/ , , , , ,



For a while now I have been extra careful with what I've been putting in my body as well as what my kids have been eating. I've gotten rid of over processed foods and cut out a lot of sugar. Well, besides natural sugar that is within fruit! Instead of grabbing a candy bar or ice cream to curb my sweet tooth I know grab fruit! Especially peaches. My fave!

Let me tell you, I have definitely restored my energy! I'll tell you how I did that soon!

Detox smoothies or healthy drink smoothies are a great way to boost energy and beautify you from the inside out! 

There are tons of antioxidants and vitamins in every one of these smoothies.
A perfect way to get the right nutrients to nourish our ever changing bodies.

If you fuel your body right, it will treat you right in return.

Here are 10 Beautifying Detox smoothies that are perfect for summer!









Pink Power Detox Smoothie
Vegan, gluten-free, grain-free, no bake/raw, nut-free, refined sugar-free, soy-free
By 

Beet, strawberries, avocado, and lemon unite to create one kick-butt, surprisingly delicious, bright pink smoothie! This creamy & thick smoothie is not overly sweet - it's more on the tart side thanks to juice from a whole lemon. If you prefer sweeter smoothies, I suggest adding an apple to the mix or your preferred liquid sweetener. I also suggest using a small to medium sized beet, anything larger and the earthy beet might overpower the other flavours. Consider gently steaming the beet until tender before blending if you don't have a Vitamix or other capable blender.  I just use the beet raw because I know my blender can handle it. Best to be safe than sorry if you are unsure!


YIelds 4 cups


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup water or coconut water
  • 1/2 medium avocado, pitted
  • 2 celery stalks, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup strawberries (frozen preferred), hulled if necessary
  • 1 small/medium beet, ends trimmed and roughly chopped*
  • 1 lemon, juiced (about 3 tablespoons or so)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 4 large ice cubes
  • 1 apple ( if sweeter smoothie is desired - optional), cored and roughly chopped

Directions:

  1. Steam beet if necessary before starting. See my tips in the headnote.
  2. Add all ingredients into a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth. Adjust sweetness if desired, adding an apple or liquid sweetener to taste if needed.
1) If you are not a beet fan, try adding a handful of leafy greens instead of the beet and include the optional apple. 2) Smoothies shown in pictures does not include apple. Yield may be slightly higher with an apple added in.








I didn't really measure anything. I took large bunch of kale, several celery stalks, cucumber, fresh peeled ginger, whole apple, juice of a lemon, stevia, and about 3/4 cup of water. Place all in blender and blend on high.
