Tulum, Mexico

Tulum, Mexico

Good morning loves! <3 It’s been a few weeks since we arrived home from Tulum and I wanted to share with you some of my favourite photos from our trip! Our experience in Tulum wasn’t perfect by any means… we had quite a few hiccups and some challenging moments. But all in all, I’m so grateful to have gone through those moments with some absolutely beautiful souls. Remember that in life, everything is perspective. Sometimes our expectations are not met completely… and that is totally fine. We have to learn to flow with life and take each moment as it is. That’s why it’s so important to surround yourself with positive, loving people. I hope you enjoy the photos! And if you plan on visiting Tulum anytime soon and would like some tips, feel free to shoot me an email. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you have a beautiful week! Sending lots of love. Namaste, <3 Molly xx __________ “Even if things don’t work out as you thought they should for you, they do – in their …

Yoga Inspiration from Tulum, Mexico

Good morning! <3 I truly hope you’re all doing well and are excited for the beautiful things to come in the last quarter of 2017! I personally love this time of year… For me, it feels like a new beginning. Autumn is almost upon us, the air is fresh and crisp, the kids are back to school… It’s quite a nostalgic time really. ๐Ÿ™‚ Irek and I arrived home from Mexico last week and are still getting back into the groove and finding our way back into our daily ‘routines’! I’m so grateful that we got to spend some quality time with our good friends, Amyย and Carlo, in Tulum… and although the trip didn’t go exactly as planned, we bonded on a much deeper level and to me, that is worth so much more than a ‘perfect’ vacation with no hiccups or obstacles. I plan on writing a blog post soon dedicated to our Tulum trip where I’ll share some tips and tricks to help you if you do plan on visiting the area… But …

How I Maintain Healthy Skin & Avoid Breakouts

Good mornings loves! Recently, I’ve been receiving quite a few questions regarding myย ‘skincare best practices’… Since I’ve personally gone through quite a transformation over the past few years with my own skincare routine, I thought it may be helpful to share some tips with you guys. Hopefully you’ll see positive results as well! <3 Eliminate animal products from your diet. There is nothing worse for your skin in my opinion than dairy, and meat products. Before I became vegan I used to break out quite often (and usually after eating a big cheesy pizza). So, if you are an omnivore, try even just eliminating animal products for a week or two- so you can see for yourself. I guarantee you’ll notice less breakouts, and more radiant skin almost immediately. Increase your water intake. As soon as you start drinking more water and filtering out all those toxins, you allow your skin to breathe again. I drink 3 litres of water everyday and this definitely keeps my skin healthy and glowing (not to mention all the …

Find Meaning, and Move Along

Good morning loves, <3 Today I want to share a little bit about dealing with people and situations in your life that don’t necessarily match well with your energetic vibration… As you know already, yoga and meditation are a huge part of my life, and for me, they really are the key to sustaining balance and peace in my heart. But regardless of how much you meditate, or how peaceful you are (or at least try to be), situations will always arise that test your resolve and your ability to keep the peace. I don’t often have much negativity surrounding me but it does happen from time to time. I think the number one lesson I’ve learned when challenging experiences arise, is that you always have to come back to your heart… Come back to that quiet place within you, that knows the truth. <3 I find it very difficult to sift through intense, conflicting emotions because I am usually in such a loving state… So, the only thing I can tell you is that …

Back Bend Yoga Pose

Discovering and Embracing Our Oneness

Good morning everyone! <3 I wanted to start the week off with a bit of a reflective post, relating to a beautiful quote I read the other day by Black Elk. If you keep up with my Instagram page, you’ll already be familiar with my love for beautiful quotes and inspiring messages… So, let’s stick with that theme for today’s post. ๐Ÿ˜‰ “The peace which is the most important, is that which comes to the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe.” -Black Elk I fell in love with this quote because I feel it to be an absolute truth in my own life… Once this peace came to me, this understanding (of the ‘bigger picture’ so to speak), my life and perspective was forever changed. Now, this doesn’t mean that my everyday is sunshine and lollipops, but it does mean that I understand things have meaning. Coincidence does not exist. Everything in this life is a lesson… and sometimes it takes a lot of reflection to find a …

Othello Tunnels

Exploring Othello Tunnels in Hope, BC

Good morning loves! <3 It’s been a little bit since my last post, so I really hope you’re all doing well, enjoying the summer, and keeping cool! You’ve probably heard by now, of the raging fires in British Columbia… I believe there are 123 active fires at the moment. Consequently, the air quality where we live is very poor. We are immersed in a huge smoke cloud, and can no longer see the mountains… That being said, I believe rain is on the horizon! It looks as though it may start to cool down a bit next week, as we’re finally seeing some rain clouds in the forecast! Let us take a moment to really feel the rain, and believe it’s presence is upon us.ย  It’s not so nice to be outside in this smoky weather, so Irek and I have been hiding out in our apartment, with our pretty kitty cat, Petrie Dumbledore. However, we did manage to get out a few days ago and explore a beautiful place called Othello Tunnels. The tunnels …

The Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary

Good morning! I’m so excited to share a little bit about our visit to The Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary! Irek and I have been wanting to visit for months now, so last Saturday we headed to Aldergrove to meet all of the beautiful animals at Happy Herd! ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy Herd is the first farm animal sanctuary on the West Coast- they officially opened in 2014 and have since touched the lives of so many animals (and humans alike). The sanctuary is the most beautiful, peaceful, loving place I’ve been… I was in heaven! We got to meet all of the different animals that call Happy Herd home, including: Baby the Donkey, Larry and Moe- the resident turkeys, Lucy the pig, Sparky the Cow… and many more! You can tell the animals are showered with love and kindness, as they themselves are gentle, friendly, and peaceful… except the white goat… don’t pet the white goat! hehe ๐Ÿ˜‰ but on a serious note, JillyBean the white goat was an SPCA seizure. It took Stephen and Diane a …

Yoga Vernon, BC

Loving, Growing, and Flowing Through Life

Good morning, I hope everyone is having a beautiful week! <3 At the moment I’m listening to an audiobook book called “The Four Agreements”… This particular book has been on my mom’s book shelf for as long as I can remember. I never felt drawn to it over the years but it’s come into my life now… For a reason, no doubt. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I love that I have a connection to my mom while listening to it. I can picture so clearly the copy that sits in her living room, to this day. ๐Ÿ™‚ My mom is such a sweet soul, and the kindest person I’ve ever known. I love listening to it, thinking about how much I love and cherish her. As soon as I started reading The Four Agreements, I knew immediately that the words were meant for me… Sometimes, things just show up in your life at exactly the right moment. I no longer believe in coincidence, so when something speaks to me, or jumps out at me, I pay close attention. …

Vancouver Yoga

Yoga Update + Relief for Sore Muscles

Good morning beautiful people! I hope everyone had an amazing long weekend. The weather in Vancouver has been gloriousย lately, full sun and 25+ everyday! I hope it’s beautiful where you are as well! ๐Ÿ™‚ First off, I just wanted to share a little bit about where I’m at in my yoga journey… I recently made the decision to start on my path to teaching. I can honestly say, teaching yoga was never on my radar… If you told me 5 years ago that this would be my focus, I wouldn’t have taken you seriously. But yoga has come into my life for a reason… It’s become a form of expression, a way of life, and the path to divine love. I will be spending a month in Bali next spring for an intensive 200 hour yoga teacher training course. I’m so excited and am simply allowing my decisions to be lead by my heart… Because of this, I’ve been able to find my own truths, and honour them at the deepest level. It’s so important …

Kelowna

Birthday Road Trip to The Okanagan Valley

Good morning! <3 It’s been a few weeks since my last post so I’m excited to share some new photos with you guys! Going forward, I’ll be posting something new every week, so stay tuned for more content (including lots of yoga posts)! Last week was my 28th birthday, and contrary to how most people feel, I do not feel old, and I am not anxious to be reaching the infamous, daunting 30. Instead, I feel vibrant, healthy, and grateful to be able to experience all of the amazing things this universe has to offer. To be honest, I am not a huge fan of birthdays… I’m not really sure why, I just have never have been. Usually on my birthday, Irek and I stay home with our cat and order takeout… But this year we thought it was time to switch things up a bit. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Our first stop on the way to Kelowna (which is a 4.5 hour drive from Vancouver) was Alexandra Provincial Park. Irek saw some photos on Instagram of this …
