Lessons On My 40th Birthday

Me and the Fam! I have news. A few weeks ago I celebrated my 40th birthday. It was my second COVID/lockdown birthday and I wasn't even sad about it. I'm not a huge birthday bash kind of girl, so not having to break the news to everyone that there would be no crazy party felt sooooooo good.  I've thought a lot about this post. About turning 40. What do I want to share here to help document this milestone birthday? When my kids look back and read this online journal so to speak, what do I want them to know about what I was thinking on May 11, 2021?

I haven't bought any of these yet (not have I been paid to promote them - in fact these sellers have no clue who I am) but I've had my eye on them for awhile....maybe I'll treat myself, it is Mother's Day tomorrow after all right?

Knot Your Average Scrunchie is an Ancaster, Ontario (Canada) based shop. The grand-daughter and grandmother duo create high quality scrunchies out of the most fabulous fabrics. This oversized cheetah satin is my fave! AND it's under $10 (click here to see). Check out their super cute Instagram page too: @knot.youraveragescrunchie.

Blush Scrunchies is based out of Toronto, Ontario (Canada) and their secret sauce is lengthened fabric for a more full looking scrunchie. I am so in it. The fuller the better IMOP. Also can I just say that I'm loving this red "Sangria Satin" scrunchie?! Check it out here (link).

Soooo you wanna go bigger eh? Well my Google search for "oversized scrunchies" led me this awesome Vancouver, British Columbia based shop, Charlie Paisley. And friends, I think I found the Mecca of all hair accessories. Handmade? Check! Canadian made? Check! Oversized and plush? Check! Check! Naturally derived and biodegradable fabric? Check! Vintage fabrics? Check!

I absolutely love the story of how they came to be, and their mission is quite lovely as well. Read all about it here.
