You're here?! Great!

This blog serves as a collection of my thoughts on everyday life, challenges, fun-finds, pretty (cool) things, and parenthood with my (oftentimes, sarcastic) view on adulting, motherhood, marriage and being a struggling homemaker.

It is February, folks, a time when greeting “Happy new year” is no longer relevant.

We are well into 2019 and although I have my personal goals in check, I am still busy trying to work a routine to serve them.

Moms, can you relate? I create a million excuses as to why I can’t find time to exercise, sit down with a good book, steal moments of me time or oftentimes, even cook up a good meal for my family.  However, I believe when we equip ourselves with the right support and tools, it makes all the difference; and makes juggling our never-ending to do lists more achievable.

Needless to say, raising a family in this day in age is so much more complicated. Admittedly in the past, I was guilty of being an easy sell.  I would purchase all the tools and newest gadgets in hopes of making #momlife easier. These gizmos- with the intention of making life easier, eventually added to the list of overwhelming tasks I needed to tend to, then eventually chucked aside to waste.

When living abroad from 2005-2012, I missed out on so many important moments with my son.  I wanted so badly to have it all - a college education, job, a stocked refrigerator, and a spotless living space resembling a stage home.  It was a rat race I could never keep up, which in turn caused unnecessary stress that took an extreme toll on my mind and body.  All that time, I could have enjoyed the experience of living in Canada; instead, my focus was on something that was really, completely unattainable. Many years have passed, I matured and realize now, how delicate and fleeting life is.  I gained perspective on what is truly important and finally started to make use of what I have to provide #zeroworries, and in return the best quality life for me and my family.

Alex and Ali’s attempt at washing dishes with Joy’s newest best ever formula.

With 3 growing children, each with gigantic appetites and varying schedules, our kitchen sink is constantly piled with dirty dishes, mixing bowls, empty glasses and greasy pans.  After a hectic day, the site of this will get me running on beast mode (if you ever reached the point of rage cleaning, you will attest beast mode is an actual thing).

Through these experiences, I’ve realized less is more and reverted back to basics. 

Joy’s Best Ever Formula can tackle more than your dirty dishes.

Joy’s Best Ever Formula can tackle more than your dirty dishes.

With the bombardment of advertisements and marketing stints flooding our social media feeds, we tend to look past the classics; good old friends, our mothers used to and still rely on; loyal home care products, ready to serve us, that have powers to make the most daunting tasks completely manageable…

I can finally #livemybestlife using a single product; Joy’s best ever formula!

Joy Liquid Dishsoap is a kitchen staple. Its best ever formula is so incredibly powerful, a single drop is all I need. The unique formulation has done wonders for our home. With Best Ever Joy, I am not only able to tackle sebo from our mountain of dishes, I am also able to scrub stubborn grease and charred meat off our BBQ griller, lubricate squeaky hinges of doors and gates, clean my windows and glass mirrors (can you believe I have stopped purchasing glass cleaner) and after all the dirty work is done, Best Ever Joy liquid is gentle enough to use as a cuticle softener when I need to DIY a manicure before a night out!

I am certain you will agree that moments leading up to housework can seem incredibly unnerving.  It is usually the last thing we want to tackle after a hard day. However, a single drop of Joy’s best ever solution is all you need to dissolve nasty sebo and dirt.  Joy’s wonder liquid does all the dirty work, so you don’t have to - ever!

In return, I am left with #zeroworries, less #momguilt and more time for the real important stuff; my family (aaand maybe a couple extra episodes of my favorite series on Netflix #lols) of course!
