Coconut Cranberry Bliss | Holiday Mix Drink with Patron

This is the first Holiday post of the year!!

Hard to believe Christmas is so near, I’m still trying to get over leaving Summer behind. Either way it’s coming, and I better be prepared in some way, shape or form. So starting with a little celebratory drink. Something easy, something that chances are you’ll have the ingredients already in your pantry ready to whip out for any occasion. Recently, we were able to attend the Patron Mixologists Event. Where all 4 of Canadas top mixers came together to win our votes on best mixed drink with Patron! It was a fabulous night and with that we even had the chance to bring home a little for ourselves!

Buy This Cup, Plant a Plant

Buy This Cup, Plant a Plant | 7-Eleven Saving Grace with Coffee

We all know that our love for coffee runs deep and strong (pun intended). We need some sort of caffeine to get through the crazy week ahead with early mornings, school routines and extra activities. We’re always on the go! I solely rely on my coffee at home and travelling… But what if I told you that when you purchase a coffee at 7-Eleven Canada you’re not only caffeinating yourself but you’re also somehow planting a tree!

Cool; right! Well that statement is true. Every time you purchase a hot beverage cup at any 7-Eleven Canada location, you are in fact contributing to a plant being planted at a local restoration site.

This program is dedicated to restoring Canadian areas that need it most, like the lovely landscapes in Fort McMurray, which were damaged by forest fires in 2016. With the help of local restoration groups, they have replanted fire resistant plants, so that when and if any forest fires trail through again, this area will fight against the fires and act as a fire retardant around the city. Very cool stuff!

I mean not only is this program hugely appreciated but I also appreciate the delicious taste of their coffees. I remember often when Owen was a little baby, Drew would run across the street for my sleep deprived morning coffees and it almost became routine and felt good to have in my hand. It was his romantic gesture while being a new mom. 7-Eleven Canada’s Exclusive Blend coffee blend won a Golden Bean trophy from the North American leg of the world’s largest coffee roasting competition; The Golden Bean. With their ongoing effort to being more environmentally friendly, you can always try get refills of their Exclusive Blend coffee (or any hot beverage) for 50 cents when you bring your own reusable mug!

  

On my way out or needing a quick caffeine fix at home it’s always nice knowing that what little I do contribute is going towards something really amazing for futures to come. That with one single recyclable cup, you’re making a difference on our planet, helping restore regions of growth for generations to come. I encourage you to give back to your communities and even though you may think that forests are full of plants, it takes many years for these plants to grow and honestly we can never have too many plants!

Good news for you, starting November 19th until November 24th 7-Eleven Canada will be hosting a Canada wide FREE coffee week for 7Rewards members!! Download the 7-Eleven App to participate and fill up a small cup for FREE and take home their Exclusive Blend!

For more information on 7-Eleven Canada’s Buy This Cup, Plant A Plant program, please visit www.7eleven.ca/restore and follow along their journey step by step and all over Canadian landscapes. Keep in check with areas that are blossoming and what ways you’re contributing! It’s nice and reassuring when you find companies like this that give back! #PlantAPlant

Modern FarmHouse Coffee Bar

But First Coffee… does that saying ever get old??

Not for me, this is my everyday. I love coffee and I especially love my Nespresso Vertuo. It is like drinking a tiny cup of heaven every single day and I would NEVER go back to anything else. Its the quality of coffee and the taste of each cup that makes it so much more special! The drink ideas of each are truly endless and it makes it so unique. And so much fun!

Because of this beautiful machine I have decided to put together my own little coffee bar. A place where this baby will reside with love! I put together some pieces that are in my future or already home with me. I can’t wait to share the after! It’s the best feeling having our own little coffee bar in our home, never worrying about leaving or going out!

These pieces are from a few different shops that are currently also my favourite. Links are all added below! Have fun brewing up some love, decor & coffee in your home!

TELUS is giving kids across Canada a brighter future with the Friendly Future Foundation

The more I learn about TELUS and the more I spend time celebrating this company I realize more and more just how outstanding they are. Not only as a service provider for our families but also helping our families, youth in need and different charities across Canada. It’s not every day that we can be amazed at companies that put back into the communities where they operate as much as TELUS does. For that I’m so proud to stand behind them!

THINK PINK | My Favourite Pink Chairs

Gahhh, have you ever had an obsession with something so bad that it’s literally the only thing you can think of! Like, I want it nowwww haha. So that’s me right now with Pink Chairs. I’m obsessed with them and can’t wait to have ours here now. Something about the pastel colours and fun feel of them that make them not your ordinary choice to go with. But it brings so much fun to your home and just not boring. It’s a colour that makes me happy and makes me feel good. 

Pink wasn’t always my first choice, before I would always be pulled to dark colours and earthy tones. Lately, I’ve been having that urge to bring in more colour, and change it up a bit. I’m sharing today five favourite Pink Chairs that I pulled from website and companies that you can purchase from and all ship to Canada. Theres a special chair on this list though that will be making their way to our home very soon and I can’t wait to share with you which one it will be!

If your really wanting to add some detail Minted carries a wide range of home decor as well. Adding some throw cushions or prints to your cozy little area would complete these chairs! I love the below pieces, the colours and art work.

Now be honest would you ever consider bringing a Pink Chair into your home?? Only me?? Thankfully my husband basically agrees with almost any home decisions I make so I’ve got it easy there. It may not be you that needs the persuading it might honestly be a husband or boyfriend that needs it more! hahaha 

Take a peek at these fun ones. Almost every one could serve purpose in every room from living room, bedrooms to even an office chair!

Free Your Play & Get Your Family Outside with Kamik

What does Free Your Play mean to you?

While I started to search for my answer, I remembered back to my childhood days. Waking up first thing in the morning, grabbing my younger sister and heading outside. Growing up on the East Coast it didn’t matter what time of the year it was you just dressed accordingly and you went outside to explore.

How To Install | Nest Learning Thermostat

Winter is coming!! Time to start warming up inside and cozying up!

Drew and I have been noticing lately that our thermostat that originally came with the home we purchased two years ago was kind of falling apart. Slowly day by day things just started to fall off or not work. Not good! haha We have Winter approaching and cold snowy weather. We needed to do something quick, soooo Drew started his manly research and stumbled upon the NEST Learning Thermostat. Literally, the coolest thing we’ve both have ever seen when it comes to home technology.Not only is it extremely stylish and modern for your home theres so many different selections to choose from on it and how to set it up. Best part how incredibly easy it is to install!

10 Favourite Photo Walls | Chilliwack To Abbotsford

I seriously loveee taking photos. One of the best memorable things ever when working with photographers! On top of that I always love mixing things up for our photos and being creative. Finding the beauty in things you wouldn’t normally! Walls around our area have a lot of creative and artistic beauty to them. Like I said, I love to find the beauty in things you wouldn’t normally. Sometimes just adding a pop of colour or print can make a whirl of difference when it comes to your photos, whether it be just a family session or for the gram. Either way its a really fun way to make your photo pop and give it a little life!

I have been putting together a collection of photos with walls in the Chilliwack & Abbotsford area that I love to visit and drive by just to see. I mean this isn’t every wall in the area there are tons more to visit to! These ones are ones that I frequently like to visit and get asked about a lot. So these are directions on where each wall is located. And hoping you visit them as well, take your photos and be sure to share them with me. I would love to see them!

Trust me theres no trespassing with any of these, but I will warn you if not there at the right time of day it can get pretty busy. So I would probably say visit first thing in the morning or later in the evening before sun goes down! Learn from my mistake!! hahaha Bonus while your in the area of any of these walls, there are lots of coffee shops and donuts to pick up along the way to make it even more fun!

The scavenger hunt of photo walls… have fun!
