Home Sweet Home: My Minimalist Bedroom Sneak Peek

My home has been shaping up in the past couple of years to be more of a reflection of my husband and I. When we first moved in 2014, the previous owners had left it a medium chocolate brown (think of a Caramilk bar). I am never one to gravitate towards that shade when it comes to decorating so needless to say I could not wait until I could find the time to make our

Happy Holidays + Year in Review

Today I woke up to the snow-covered rooftops of my neighbors. It’s Christmas Eve – and a Saturday! The year 2016 has flown by so quickly. I look back in my Day Designer and see some of the goals I had scribbled down at the beginning of the year and realized that many of them CAN be crossed off as complete! Good bye old planner – in with the new, you treated me well. This

LA Trip Travel Favourites

This past August we traveled with a couple of our best friends to sunny Los Angeles. We landed in San Jose, rented a Jeep and drove along the coast. Winding roads beside the ocean led us to our beautiful destination. As a Canadian who had never been anywhere remotely close to this side of the continent it was a whole new world. We really loved the laid back, friendly and effortless vibe of the place.

Cozy December Essentials

I love the kind of look where you can be comfortable, cozy yet effortlessly elegant at the same time. To block out the chilly air I threw on a fuzzy turtleneck sweater purchased from Aritzia.* My jacket is a tried and true favourite that I bought at Target a few years ago (no longer available) but I I strongly suggest shopping from the Montreal brand Soia & Kyo. Their styles are classic and practical! I

Holiday Look

The other day we fulfilled an annual holiday tradition of visiting a farm to cut our own Christmas tree. While my husband and I decided to skip the actual tree part this year, we tagged along with a few of our close friends to enjoy the fresh air and festivities. It was an overcast, brisk day but not cold — perfect weather to be walking in a field of evergreens. We all brought along the

Daily Makeup Look

Makeup is something that I do not cake on unless it is for a special event or photo shoot. I love using natural, warm brown hues and products that do not consume much of my morning as I prefer sleeping in as long as I can. These are a few products that make my effortless (literally) and low maintenance beauty routine possible! Many of these products were given to me when the brands partnered with

Living Room Updates

Many of you have seen photos of my living room via Instagram and other forms of social media, along with a little peak of it in this post. Lately there have a been a few additions! I love plants and made a visit to a local nursery to purchase more green goodness for my house. I picked up this lovely Snake Plant which also happens to be an excellent air purifier.
