I'm Rebecca! Solo maker behind UNREFINED. If you are new to this feed, thank you! Even without spending a dime, your likes and comments are helping me build my company. I appreciate you so much ❤. Here are 5 facts about me you may not know:

1) I am the baby of a huge family. When we get together all the grocery stores around my parent's place start to worry that they may not have enough food... 2) I pretty much live in dresses even in the winter. And no, my legs are not FREEZING even though I don't wear tights.

3) I have a degree in Public Relations from Mount Royal University. I couldn't decide what I wanted to do for post-secondary after high school and probably would have waffled forever so my then boyfriend's parents bribed me with $1000 that I would ONLY get once I finally started college.

4) I am happiest near water be it the ocean, a lake or even a tiny creek. A huge puddle to splash in will do in a pinch.

5) I would love to have my own cooking show someday. It's basically my oldest dream incan remember having and there are plenty of humiliating videos of my as a kid honing my skills.

What about you? Tell me something about you so I know who I'm chatting with every day.

Do you ladies rock lash extensions of just stick with classic mascara? I'm SO on the fence!! I just love the idea of waking up with those big dramatic eyes but have yet to actually try them.

For those of you who have already taken the plunge and are steering clear of oil-based moisturizers, you have to try our Jetsetter face mist. The moisture and softness are off the charts--all delivered in one quick little spritz. And extension approved to boot! .

LET'S GET REAL // selling a house in a down market is kind of slog. We still truly believe the right thing will happen in it's time but the pressure to keep everything perfect (something I fight with at the most relaxed of times) is getting a bit old.

Today we had a showing at 3PM. Right smack in the middle of nap time, still you want to have people come. The day was lovely although I found myself hyper aware of every toy that was pulled out, every soup splash, knowing that our footprints would need to be totally erased later on.

At about 11AM I said screw it and made cookies with the boys. Why not? I mean, we do live here. I had already made my turkey stock on the back deck in the Instant Pot for fear of having my house smell too "meaty". For a brief moment, I remembered the Pinterest article advising AGAINST baking cookies prior to a showing lest buyers feel manipulated, but I decided if that was the thing that sunk the ship, so be it. I'm not sure I would feel good about selling our house to cookie-haters anyways lol.

All that to say, we don't know if these people will put in an offer or if they even liked our home, but tonight I will eat chewy cookies alongside a glass of red wine and reflect on a day well-lived, letting the pressure to be perfect get washed away in the giggles of my boys and the takeout pizza-fueled dance party that ended their day. Life is good even in the midst of the unknown.

PS if you want to see how we handled naptime, check out our stories 😴☕ 🚗

You know what I love about peppermint (other than its healing properties of course)? Its stubborn resiliency even when the early prairie snow tries to stomp it out.

So a big bouquet of peppermint blooms on my counter today.

Find this incredible natural ingredient in our Matcha Mint Deo, vapor rub, No More Monsters bedtime spray and the perennial favorite charcoal mint soap on a rope.

HOME STAGING 101: summed up, you do not have nearly enough throw pillows... Like seriously, get thee to Home Sense and clean them out!

I recently had the chance to work with Robyn from @rddesignsource to stage our home. Just wow. What an amazing experience. I wish I would have hired her when we moved in and not just as we were leaving. Specific, practical advice without judgement and so fun to work with. If you are looking for someone to help you sell for too dollar or just to make your house feel AMAZING, give her a shout.

When someone gives you a gilded, chocolate-dipped cheesecake bite in a sparkly box, you say thank you (obviously). When you meet the maker of that delectable morsel and she's a totally wonderful and thoughtful person, you are grateful to be in the orbit of a human dedicated to kindness and lifting others up.

Jordan from Modern Catering is just one of the amazing women that have been brought into my circle thanks to @know_calgary. If you're looking for ✨wow✨ food for your next event, give her a ring.

Take care of yourself so you can take care of them. No one argues with that logic when they say it on an airplane. You're like, duh, I can't save my kid's life if I'm unconscious. For some reason though, putting it into practice with both feet on the ground is tricker somehow.

My Wise Woman (some would call her a life coach but Wise Woman feels so much more accurate) reminds me of how crucial this is to my over health and wellness, my marriage and my family. I feel like it's starting to sink in. When I take care of myself I have the energy to play, to create, to innovate. I have more patience when my toddler is losing his s&%@ and desperately needs me to be his calm focus in the storm. I can just listen when my hubby needs to rant about a stressor in his life without trying to solve it. I can also see that, often, the negative energy directed at me is not ABOUT or BECAUSE OF me. Knowing that, I am able to show compassion instead of judgement, freeing myself of creating more of it.

So I take the nap when the opportunity presents itself. I go out with a girlfriend to acknowledge the woman that loves to socialize. I say no to things I don't want to do without feeling guilty. Amd sometimes I just kick the laundry off the end of the bed and crawl in because that pile can wait until tomorrow. That's my version of self-care. What's yours?

I just love a classic! And with the chillier weather today, it's the perfect day to watch or read your favourites.

My absolute favourite movie from when I was young is the classic CBC miniseries, Anne of Green Gables. I could watch all 10 hours of it any day of the week (except of course, I have kids so I can typically only enjoy small chunks at a time 😂). I used to watch them all with my dad when I was small and stayed home for a sick day. Now that's love ❤

What are your favourites?

Strong women. Is there any other kind? 💪👑 Such a great night surrounded by a diverse group of women at the inaugural @know_calgary gala.

It really is true that we rise together. I never would have been able to be a part of this tribe without nominations from the ladies tagged in this post. Words can't express how much your support, kindness and encouragement have meant to me over the past couple years. You demonstrated community over competition and made me a true believer.

Tag someone who has lifted you up in business or in life and in the spirit of Follow Friday, we can follow back so we can all know even more amazing souls.
