I've been passionate about art for as long as I can remember, always doodling in the margins of notebooks, striving to be creative in every aspect of my life. I have been giving sketchbooks and artwork as gifts to friends for years, but it is only recently that I began selling them as a way to raise money for a trip to Cambodia in July. It started simply as a way to fundraise for the trip, but has grown into something I never thought possible.

Lisa Loves - My Morning Routine

Lisa Loves - My Morning Routine

I work with a mentor. For a year and a half, I've paid her and I've done what she suggested, almost... The one thing I wasn't doing was the Morning Routine. My belief was that it was too complicated and would take too much time in my already extremely chaotic over-stressed morning. On a call last week, while everyone else was talking about the morning routing, I admitted that I haven't been doing it at all.

It all started in our kitchens! Like many people, we were creating our own DIY skincare products from ingredients found in our fridge or pantry, such as honey face masks, coconut body butters or moisturizing olive oil blends. These DIY products resonated with us, and many others, because they used ingredients that we can trust. With that sentiment of trust, we focused on formulating skincare products derived from food ingredients that are commonly safe to consume.

My art is my main source of fun, and creating things keeps me sane. Making things helps me to feel accomplished in my day because I was able to bring something to life. My husband is also in the creative industry and it affects the way we see the world around us, the way we notice colour, light, or just the beauty of everyday life and simple things.
