The Art of Self Care- WIN a Weekend Away at Sparkling Hill!

The Art of Self Care- WIN a Weekend Away at Sparkling Hill!

Happy Monday everyone!

You guys- WOW. I had the most wonderful two days away last weekend at Sparkling Hill Resort I’m so grateful that I had the chance to sneak in a break. Self care is so important, especially for busy moms trying to do it all! Burning the candles at both ends is easy to do… I saw a hilarious meme about how impossible it is to be present for the kids, your partner, do a great job at your career, entertain, keep up with all your friends… and yet, as much as I laughed, that is what I expect from myself. Crazy right? I might need a daily reminder.

So where is this place? What is this place? Sparkling Hill is one of the most amazing spas I have ever been to, and I’ve been to many around the globe! From the stunning premises created by the Swarovski family, they offer a range of wellness oasis amenities and services unprecedented in North America. Beautiful surroundings, farm to table dining philosophy and holistic spa treatments, Sparkling Hill also offers wellness programs on maintaining a healthy lifestyle and personal wellness.

As an often tired Mom, my goal for my own weekend away was to SLEEP for a full night, and not have to a million things in the morning, and just to catch up on a little rest- and wow, I got that and so much more! I was so inspired to make more time for self care in my daily routine and to take regular breaks which I tend to forget when I’m so darn busy- I usually wait until I crash, which, is NOT a good habit.

So my fellow Mamas, especially the ones writing asking how I get the energy to do it all, (and I don’t always!) here’s YOUR change to win your own weekend away! I am partnering with Sparkling Hill to give you guys the chance to win a 2 night introductory wellness package at this fabulous resort in beautiful British Columbia Canada, which includes the following:

Package Inclusions:

* 2 nights’ accommodation
* Daily 3 course dinner per guest in Peak Fine Restaurant

Happy Valentines Day! New track + Giveaway!

Happy Valentines Day! New track + Giveaway!

LOVE DAY IS ALMOST HERE!!

Well, we’re already a month into 2020 and it flew by… more restrictions but not creatively! I’m excited to share that I recorded a little love song called Walk With Me- a special piece of music with a story based on an old Irish song which dates back to the Jacobean rebellion. It’s about a woman who is heart broken that her lover has gone to fight in the war but that she wishes him well. So to me, it’s about giving your partner freedom in love and I think that’s beautiful. I imagine she’s inviting him to come back and join her.

We shot the music video at the Telemark Nordic Club in West Kelowna, a beautiful winter sports club here in British Columbia. It was stunningly beautiful, with snowflakes falling on us- and the suprised look of some skiers coasting by! I was so glad to have the whole family there- we all went out and had a fun day, and a fab team as well- thanks to:

Stephanie Lucile Photography, Uncorked Films and Jenny McKinney Makeup Artistry!

What’s going on here? Well…..I’m not sure about getting into this dress in the freezing cold!!!
