Athleisure Cool for Fall

Although I do like dressing up, there is a side of me that also loves to thoughtfully piece together casual looks. I have always been drawn to slouchy pieces – over sized jackets and sweaters, wide leg pants, large scarves and flowing vests to name a few. I am also a really big fan of athleisure. I am not saying you will spot me in yoga pants running around doing errands anytime soon, but it

Stylish Diaper Bags for Busy Mamas

When I started shopping for baby gear I had it in mind to splurge on two items – a stroller and diaper bag. I was more than willing to purchase second-hand baby clothes and save money on other items but I figured that these two essentials in particular needed to have excellent quality, functionality and style. I ended up choosing a Lily-Jade bag; their Madeline style in the Brandy colour. Today I dish on what

My Botanical Baby Room Reveal

Amidst everything else going on I managed to finish our baby room with plenty of time to spare. It is now one of my favourite spaces in the house! When it comes to decor in general I am not overly feminine. I love my neutrals…and plants. I love plants. Prior to beginning decorating, the room was my office. After realizing life was about to change drastically we moved my desk to a different area of

Celebrating My One Year Blogiversary!

This month marks one year for my blog! I cannot believe all the changes that have happened in such a short time. I have had the privilege of working with so many amazing individuals and brands.

Writing for Elaine taught me quite a bit

Pampering for Our Mini Babymoon at Hand & Stone Spa College St.

A couple of weekends ago my husband and I decided to head to Toronto for the day to enjoy a bit of time together before our new family member enters our lives. We kind of missed the whole babymoon getaway train – and personally with how uncomfortable my belly is these days I am more than happy to sleep in my own bed at night as opposed to a hotel, no matter how luxurious. We

Zaful Midi Dress Wish List

I have often seen Zaful posts on Instagram, and recently my sister mentioned the online shopping site to me while I was helping a friend source out some cute, reasonably priced bathing suits for her vacation in Greece. Swimming apparel aside, they also have a lot of cute clothing in a wide variety of styles – one of them being the midi dress. This length of dress has made a comeback in a big way

I’m Bringing Sexy Back With a Couple of Summer Dress Favourites!

Hello beauties! I have been up to a lot lately – much of which has to do with the upcoming arrival of baby Pop. From cooking nutritious meals to vacuum seal away so we have food at a later date (without having to vouch for takeout while I am busy with the little one) to pre washing all the baby laundry with some natural, gentle detergent and finishing the baby room I have literally had

maternity shoot

Bohemian Style Maternity Shoot by Ema Suvajac

It took me 29 years to finally feel like I was at a place in my life to want to pour everything into a little human being who needed me for everything. I had checklist after checklist that I would complete – each and every time telling myself “when this one is done then I will want a baby.” Each time a list would end I would simply create another. If there is one thing
