My Life Has Been a Rollercoaster During the Pandemic #covid19 #newlove #bloggingmom

It's been quite a long time since I've written anything, as it's been a crazy six months. I can say that it's been one of the most challenging times of my life... with the pandemic and working from home along with homeschooling my daughter. I don't think I've ever been so stressed, sad, angry, confused, and exhausted before. The whole situation was so overwhelming, and I'm sure plenty of other moms feel the same. I also recently came out of a 7 month relationship... it probably wasn't smart living together during a pandemic, and it seemed to have fallen apart. I somehow went into a new relationship that happened when I wasn't even looking for it. Anyways, it's time to focus on myself and my family and start a new chapter.

Since the pandemic with me working from home and being slightly depressed, I had put on 20 lbs. I'm not proud of myself for it, and I want my healthy lifestyle back. I was feeling fairly uncomfortable in my clothes, and hated when I look at myself in the mirror. Two months ago without me looking, I met my soulmate who loves me for who I am. Regardless, I want to drop weight for my health and sanity. 

He says I'm beautiful, well I want to feel it. Yes, I am pretty... nice smile and gorgeous eyes, but I'm self conscious when it comes to my mid section. Even though I've put on 20 lbs, I still have the hanging skin in the middle area. A spanx hides it most of the time, but living my life wearing that daily isn't realistic. 

My goal weight for the new year just after the holidays is 175 lbs. It's doable, and I want it. Since I met that special someone (I don't want to identify him quite yet), I've been eating more Mediterranean and healthy. My final goal is 150 lbs... and I'd be happier and healthier. 2020 has been a bit of a shitshow due to the pandemic, but I'm looking forward to 2021 being an amazing year with results.

Loving my New Work of Art in the Living Room from Photowall #review #homedecor #art

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Lemon - Trees White (wallpaper)

I've been living in my apartment in Scarborough for about two years now, and I'm just about finished decorating. I finally found the perfect piece for the wall in my living room ... I looked for the longest time to find something that would work on the large wall, but would still accommodate a television in front of the artwork. I came across the beautiful canvas print Allee by Jorma Jamsen on Photowall, and I knew that I finally found what I was looking for.

Their moto is "Wall Art by Passionate People"... where you'll find a wide collection of wallpaper and prints in their collection. They take pride and are passionate about helping people transform their homes to reflect their personalities. They offer wall murals, designer wallpaper, canvas prints, framed prints, posters, personalized wallpaper, own canvas prints, own framed prints, own posters (from your own images).

I was contacted by the company to see if I'd like to work with them to review one of their works of art. I must of spent at least an hour on the website looking through all the gorgeous masterpieces... they really do offer something for everyone.
