Hi, my name is Lisa and I am so glad you are stopped by. I am here to help heart-centered woman like you, style and declutter your home and soul to create a happier, mindful and more balanced life. I share home decorating, organization and mindful health strategies designed to simplify your busy life. Ready to follow your heart, and lead a mindful, happier life? Hands up If that’s you! Shouting ‘YES’, then you are in the right place, my friend.
Speaking of friends, I married my best friend (cliche I know, but true) over thirty years ago, and can not imagine my life without him. We enjoy spending time in the country and head to one of the many beautiful lakes around our city as often as possible throughout the summer. The quiet, and disconnect from the busy city while we connect with nature, revitalizes our souls and strengthens our relationship. We love to travel and hope to travel more often now that I am working from home. My favourite tropical destinations is Waikiki, Oahu. The friendly, laid-back Hawaiian culture is divine and the beaches are gorgeous. Meeting interesting people everywhere we go is by far the best part of travelling. We hope to take one or two trips each year, next up is London and Paris!
This is us on our wedding day!
Our three beautiful daughters are in the picture below! Honestly, watching them grow up and mature into amazing young women has given me a joy beyond measure. I am so proud of all that they stand for and amazed every day at how they love big and have a deep compassion for the people around them. This photo was taken in our backyard at our ‘baby’ girl’s University Graduation celebration. By the way, the tallest girl in the middle is actually the youngest! We have a registered nurse (on the left), a pro-blogger (on the right), and a biochemical engineer (in the middle). This is one proud mama.
I love to decorate and design, read, craft, DIY, and scrapbook. Basically, I like to make things pretty, and use the creative, right side of my brain. To stay in shape I love running and find it is a major stress reducer. My home yoga practice keeps me centred and balanced while promoting wellness and a strong connection to the world around me. Hanging out with my best friends is a must, the ‘sisterchicks’ are near and dear to my heart. We share our lives, we understand and do not judge, we encourage and build each other up and we also laugh so hard we might even cry. Life is good.
Before diving into the world of entrepreneurship, I worked part-time as a medical office assistant for a busy family practice that specialized in obstetrics. Before that, I was employed at the University of British Columbia Southern Medical Program, an optometrist office and in a pediatric ophthalmologist clinic. My passion for helping people drew me to employment in the healthcare field and now into the entrepreneurial world full time, I am excited about all the possibilities.
My love for helping others inspires me to write, share ideas and what I learn along the way. My dream is to empower and guide you to lead a balanced, mindful and heart-centered life by keeping it simple and real.
