Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! Happy Monday I hope everyone weekend went well? Mine went great I feel like this weekend even the last week went by too quick. For today’s blog post I wanted to share what keeps me going and motivated when it comes to blogging.

I know as bloggers we all go through rough patches and moments of forgetting why we started blogging, or moments of frustration with a specific problem or maybe even life taking over and we slowly give up. Yup, I go through these every now and then. I have my moments of frustration to where I always ask myself “what am I doing wrong?” Or is my content good enough? To where I have had life take over and I had to totally put blogging on hold. That moment was really rough for me because when I had returned my blog was barely getting any traffic and I had to work extra hard and put out double the posts to let every know like “heyy am back!” . My biggest challenge so far as a blogger is getting huge amounts of traffic, like this drives me insane to where I always feel like giving up. Sometimes I can’t even be bothered to days I literally am up a day reading blogs on blogs of how to improve your traffic.

What I realized is there is no secret to what gets everyone going. It’s why we started blogging and the story behind it. I always remember the day I left me job and was home doing absolutely nothing, and I just decided to start little Black Dress out of no where. I always try and remember the days I struggled in school due to having a learning disability and it interfering with jobs and having people tell me I can’t. Little Black Dress came from a mom being able to be herself and express who Sarah is. I would say one of the biggest reasons I stay motivated is wanting to conquer my shyness, I hate public speaking and opening up and I feel like this is the only place I can do it. I don’t want me being “shy” take over and stop me from getting what I want in life and this is it this is the answer so far in achieving just that.

If we all just take a minute through those times and think to really why we started everything that’s the best motivation we can get. To even where the promotions, money and social media fame wouldn’t mean anything to us but the enjoyment of putting out posts. I am also so blessed to have a supportive husband who always supports my blogging, he is always there to help me and always even willing to proofread my work (always embarrassing for me). He gives me ideas and always asks me how it’s doing and willing to invest in anything I need. I honestly don’t know what I would do without him I feel like he is that extra push I need to keep going, it’s always good to have that support system that would be your cheerleader when you are down and stuck. Before blogging I honestly didn’t know it was going to be this hard but I don’t regret it one bit! Thanks everyone for reading! I hope this post help in someway or another, next post will be up Wednesday at 9am EST.

Happy Wednesday everyone I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday so far? For today’s blog post I am going to talk about my 5 top current favourite fashion pieces I use almost all the time with whatever I wear. Either its all or some and this is my current for the season, some of these pieces I could probably use past winter also.

So my first two pieces I am in love with and pretty much am using all the time during the winter season is my zara belted fur coat and my fashion drug inspired Luis vutton backpack purse. I absolutely love this coat I did a post about it awhile back because my husband got this for me right before I gave birth to my second daughter and from then I pretty much am wearing this jacket if the weather inst too bad.

The bag is my top current go to bag, I pretty much use this bag for every outfit I wear from relaxed to chic. I realised this bag is actually a great winter season piece, this is because I hate using certain bags in the winter to me it’s just a hassle and this is more a handbag but a backpack kind of way. Another reason I love this bag is because you can switch around the handles anyway you like! I purchased this item in the fall on Fashion Drug, which is a site that sells Inspired designers bags. The last time I checked the bag is still there but I believe it will soon be gone due to them introducing a new collection.

Another item that is part of my top favourite is a current new purchase. I haven’t got to wear them yet but am already so in love with them! My snakeskin sneakers from Zara, these shoes were getting sold out quick I am lucky I got to purchase them last minute. I tried these on and they feel super comfy I just hope it isn’t a hassle breaking them in. I am not sure if they are still online but they could be. This next piece is something I would so pair with my sneakers which is my Zara leather jacket, if am not wearing my fur jacket I’d most likely be wearing this one. My husband bought me this one about two years ago now and that’s another reason I absolutely love this jacket. It’s super comfy pretty thick and a great piece to have in the closet. My last item would probably be my black borg fur coat, yes another coat. I never noticed but I guess I’ve been loving a lot of coats this season, I love wearing this piece when it comes to more relaxed looks and I don’t want to dress up too much. I purchased this from Forever 21 online I find that it’s more easier to shop online when it comes to forever 21. These are all my top 5 favourite pieces that are in my closet, I for now can’t wear an outfit without at least one or more of them incorporated in them. I hope you all enjoyed today’s post, happy Monday! Look out for Wednesday blog post at 9am EST time.

Hey everyone, and welcome back to another blog post! Happy Wednesday hope everyone is having a great start to their Wednesday? If you have noticed or not I have decided to put a change to my posting schedule and switch it from Wednesday at 3pm to Wednesday at 9am. This puts a little bit more of a pressure on me to get my post up early and scheduled for Wednesday but I’ve been doing a lot of research and I have been studying my feed and I have noticed that my big traffic and audience is more larger at 9am then 3pm. I know Monday can be different from Wednesday but I am going to give it a try ! Now for today’s blog post am going to talk about my current fashion wish list and how my wardrobe is looking at the moment, and future purchases also.

So if you follow me on Instagram you all know I have a huge zara obsession, it is pretty bad when it comes to my kids I love shopping in zara kids I am obsessed ! But now recently I am loving zara women and I swear I am now converting my whole wardrobe to zara. So I have current favourites for my wish list at the moment.


These are some of my wish list items from zara, a premium ribbed dress, faux leather leggings and the ribbed dress. They are all roughly around $40 CAD. My next few items on my wish list are from Miss pap and Missy empire.

The first item from Missy Empire is the grey joggers, I feel like every girl needs at least one pair of joggers in their wardrobe. You can style this piece anyway. The next item is the grey ribbed two piece set, this is an popular outfit I have been seeing it a lot online, I feel like this would make a cute spring, fall and winter statement. The third is a black leather jacket, this is a cute spring and fall jacket to style with any outfit of choice. Lately I have been looking for one I like and that is not pushing it price wise.

My last item on my list is from Nordstrom, I have bag like this but I thought this one was super cute and would look good with any outfit. Which is an transparent cross body bag. This bag is about $49.00 CAD, those would be some of the items on my wish list currently. I have so much more items but of course I dont want to make this post too long. And am sorry if the post seems super short, I stayed up late trying to get this post half way done then currently just finished it while doing mom duties. I wanted to make this post of me not too much talking but more showing the items but hopefully it helped. Next post will be up Monday at 9amEST! Have a great rest of your Wednesday!

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to another blog post ! Lucky you this week getting posts back to back. I am so excited to do this post as it is a product line I have tried awhile back and it doesn’t get out there much also because not much people know of it. But this is a line that can pretty much relate to everyone and to be honest its a pretty fun line.

Farm house fresh is a founded brand from its name of course, their ingredients is made from their fresh grown ingredients on the farm. This brand is a natural based skin care brand their farm house is based in the united states, 99.6% of the ingredients are healthy and fresh. Story behind the brand itself !

All About Farmhouse Fresh

Being such an interesting brand, even for the green beauty space, the story behind FarmHouse Fresh is one to hear. Like many small, indie brands, FarmHouse Fresh was created with one flagship product that went on to become the cornerstone of a full line of skin care products. Just over 10 years ago, FarmHouse Fresh launched an exfoliation trio with sea salt as the main ingredient. This exfoliation system was developed by FarmHouse Fresh founder Shannon McLinden to heal cracked heels. It was that one simple product that launched FarmHouse Fresh to almost instant success after it snagged a coveted feature on Oprah’s O-List. That achievement was just one of many with FarmHouse Fresh products scoring numerous nods from esteemed publications like Elle, Southern Living Magazine, and Redbook.

So aside from the fact that FarmHouse Fresh literally uses farm fresh ingredients, there are many things that make this brand so unique. FarmHouse Fresh princes itself on being a USA made product that specially crafts each and every one of its growing skin care line. Their message of farm life and freshness goes beyond their skin care products as evidenced by just a quick tour around their site. You’ll see that FarmHouse Fresh is dedicated to their farm and all the animals that live there.  – FarmHouseFresh 


Farm house fresh has collection of face, body, fragrance and bath products. They carry oils, exfoliates, lotions, creams, moisturisers, soaks, cleansers and much more. Farm house fresh boy oils are perfect to moisturiser the skin after a nice bath or shower, the unique formulation they have is created to lock in moisture. The oils each have a formulation of blended oils and each farm house fresh oil is 99.6% natural formulation. To achieve the best results with the oil is best to drop in a bath or just apply right after a shower. The farm house fresh lotions they have has a great formulation like aloe, shea butter that benefit the skin. They have a number of different scents like back country caramel, fresh melon, ginger sorbet and sweet cream.

The first time I ever tried this brand was back in college when I was studying spa management and this was sold in the college spa, and I personally was hooked on this brand. There products smell so good I purchased the melon scrub with vodka in it and the back country caramel lotion, that lotion was my all time favourite I must say. If you are looking for the all time organic brand that does the job and smells great this would be the one. I love how farm house fresh does their scrubs, their bourbon bubbler is infused with brown sugar and real Kentucky whiskey.

There is a watermelon basil vodkatini, which is watermelon, organic vodka and basil. This has watermelon seed oils with sugar and rice bran for a great exfoliation. The rasmopolitan which is raspberry and vodka, and sugar with rice bran oil. The raspberry extract and the vitamin E in it help hydrate the skin and the salt and sugar help lift away any dead skin cells on the skin. The brand has a great variety of products, you can look at here on their site Farmhousefreshgoods.com. I hope I had the answer to all your cleansing, exfoliating and skin needs if you would like to know more have some time to visit their site. Thank you for reading I hope you all have a great rest of our Wednesday ! Look out for Monday post which will be posted at 9am EST.

Good morning everyone ! and welcome back to another blog post and happy Tuesday to everyone. I hope everyone is having a great start to their Tuesday, Valentines day is now over even though everyday should be valentines day. My valentines day went great it was filled with love and stress as I was also still being a mom but it went how i somewhat expected it to go. I realised sometimes its hard getting that dream date you envision when your a 24/7 parent, as long your significant other tried that all that matters.

Well my Thursday morning started off with a manicure, I was way overdue for one. My husband drove me to the nail bar, this was actually one of my valentines gifts as he paid for my manicure which was super sweet of him. After my nail appointment it was back to mommy duties and reality, when I came home my husband actually ended up surprising me with another gift he hid. After he dropped me off at my nail appointment he actually took our daughter with him to the store to pick up my gift. For over a year now I’ve been obsessing over having a keurig I love coffee, and he actually went out and got it! I was so surprised because the day before valentines day he told me the gifts he had planned on getting was not going to come in by tomorrow which he had lied. He also ended up getting our oldest daughter a heart shaped box of chocolates. We didn’t get to go out that night because he had to work so we put our plans for tomorrow the 15th, so it was pretty much mom duties for the rest of that day.

Later on that night my husbands calls me saying I got a package coming to the door, I really didn’t expect this I thought it was makeup. I answer the door and notice it was a package from Amazon the box was pretty small and really light so am wondering what it can be plus my husband seemed really excited. I quickly open the package and it was a iphone tripod mount, I was wondering why my husband just ordered a mount and not the tripod, my husband knows I’ve been really wanting one to start doing videos and use it for also blogging. Funny thing is he thought the tripod came with mount, and I had to simply explain to him its two separate things. I find my husband funny sometimes but I love that he goes beyond for me, and that what I took into consideration that moment. So since we couldn’t go out that night because my husband had to work we saved the date for the Friday night. So we went out to Moxies bar and grill one of my favourite restaurants, and had a wonderful time. We did a movie and dinner date night, so we went to watch escape room which by the way you all should go watch its so good. Then it was to sephora where he allowed me to pick what I liked and he would buy, which I don’t thing ill ever try and go in on Friday nights again. Overall this year valentines day was amazing hopefully next year me and my husband can go somewhere.

And that is my valentines day in an review, at my best. I cannot complain I could see my husband tried his best to make it special for us which is hard with a baby and a five year old. I wish we could go full on out but being parents you get what you can get. But thanks for reading, I was behind on posting this because you all know my posting schedule is Mondays at 9am and Wednesday at 3pm but yesterday was such an hard day my 3 month old was not having it yesterday. It was a really bad day for her and me I honestly got nothing done yesterday so I am behind for this post but tomorrow post will still be going up usual time. Thanks for all bearing with me and still supporting me, I hope you all have a great rest of the day.
