Who else is ready for spring? I’m so ready! I’m so over the cold and icy weather and not to mention the dry skin that comes with it. I love a good body scrub to use in the shower or bath, but they can be pricey and you don’t always know what ingredients are in it. So this weekend I whipped up a batch of some homemade lavender peppermint sugar scrub. It’s so incredibly easy to make that I can barely call this a DIY. It consists of two ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry, plus two essential oils – that’s it! No weird ingredients and no preservatives. I’ve been trying to use more natural products with my skincare so this is a perfect solution. Plus it’s totally customizable! Don’t like the oils I’ve used? Then use whatever scents are your favourite!Read More
Let’s talk organization. This is something that I actually love. Give me a label maker and I will go to town labeling everything in my sight. But for real, the best gift I’ve ever received is my label maker (thanks Joel!). Organization comes quite naturally to me. I’m not sure why, but I’ve always been a very organized person. Maybe it’s because I get this weird satisfaction whenever things are perfectly in order and in their own little space. Anyone else just love to drool over Pinterest-worthy, perfectly organized spaces?
Maybe you’re not as obsessed with organizing as I am and maybe it’s something that you are trying to work towards this year. If that is a goal for you this year, now is the perfect time to start! I always feel like the start to a new year is the perfect opportunity to work towards organizing areas of your home. For me, my kitchen is the one area that I’m always trying to keep organized and tidy. It’s the room in our home that gets used the most and having an organizational system helps to keep everything in its place and frees up space. So this weekend I decided to finish tackling this project and the best part is that I did so with mostly dollar-store products!Read More
So we finally purchased a new coffee table to replace the wobbly old one we got for free when we moved in. It served its purpose, but it was time for an upgrade. Now that we have a new coffee table that is totally more my style, I wanted to share how I typically decorate it!Read More
We are well into the year 2020 friends! Just in case you didn’t realize… like me. How has 2019 already come and gone? It just feels like yesterday when Joel and I bought our first home and moved in but in reality, it’s been a year and a half. A year and a half and we finally just purchased some new furniture to replace the old, mismatched, hand-me-down pieces that were given to us when we first moved in. Hey, when it’s free, the price is right!
Now that Christmas and holidays have come and gone and we are all welcoming a new year into our lives (and some of us, like me, are just trying to remember to write 2020 instead of 2019 on documents), it can be a good time for both reflection and planning of the change in year.Read More
This year for Christmas, instead of exchanging gifts, Joel and I decided to go on a little two-day winter getaway to our favourite place – Niagara-on-the-Lake. Anyone who knows me knows that this is my favourite place to visit (I’ve written a previous blog post about NOTL which you can read here)! We usually go once or twice a year, but we’ve never been in the winter so I thought it would be the perfect place to visit over the holidays.Read More
Okay so this post is so long overdue… it’s officially after Christmas and I’m just sharing my front porch decorated for the holiday season now – oopsy. I even had it decorated so early too (like always)! Oh well. The holiday season has come and gone but I still love my front porch decorations and want to share them with you all (even if it’s a little past Christmas now)! Anyways, I hope you all enjoy this still and maybe you can get some inspiration for next year!Read More
The fall season is now over, and as much as I love Thanksgiving and Halloween, I am so excited to start celebrating the change in seasons and start doing all the festive holiday things. I always plan to do so much over the winter season, so this year I decided to create a winter holiday bucket list, along with a holiday movie bucket list, to make the most out of this season and all that comes with it: the snow, the holidays, and of course the food! So continue reading to see all my favourite ideas (and Christmas movies!) combined into bucket lists that you can print off and hang up wherever that will remind you best of the fun holiday activities that this season has to offer!Read More
Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians! It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada, and what better way to celebrate than to spend time with family, eat turkey, and of course visit a pumpkin patch?Read More
Fall is finally here and I couldn’t be more excited! I love everything about fall – the food, the colours, the comfy sweaters – and of course, decorating my front porch! I’ve been waiting patiently to start decorating my front porch for the change in season and by
So keep reading to see how I decorated my front porch for fall and hopefully it will give you some ideas!Read More
