Our Entry Room Makeover | Before & After

It’s finished!! Feels like it’s been taking some time, but once you see how much we had to do you will understand why. Everything that was here when we moved in was original. We loved that we could learn and change some things to personalize our home a little more for ourselves.

Drew had SO much help from one of his friends, taking apart the floor and installing new floors. Once they finished all that hard work. We decided to give the walls a fresh new coat of paint. Along with a new railing and furniture to give this little space new life. We have never done floors before. So Drew learnt a lot during this process. Excited to try and tackle others in the home now!

Turned out just the way I wanted it to. Loving every bit of it. The after part that is! Take a peek below…

Memorable 2018 Moments |Happy New Year

The end of the year wouldn’t be complete without a look  back right?? 
These past couple of weeks marked one year of quitting my full time job and pursuing Blogging as my full time gig instead. Trust me when I say it was stressful. I was tested over and over. I doubted the whole idea numerous of times. I made some HUGE mistakes. Mistakes that were actually learning lessons. Trusted to much. Didn’t trust enough. Felt defeated. 


But at the same time all of this lead me to other emotions and feelings.Like being blown away by all of your support and sweet caring thoughtful messages cheering me on from the sideline. Being my friend and making connections with me and my family. Trusting me with your brand/buisness. Feeling a huge urge of being creative. Which fuels me! No better feeling in the world for myself than to be creative and do things I love. I have learnt to trust my gut, intuition, how to say no when needed and balance it all over again in a different light. 


I’ve been so lucky by this last year. and I’m incredibly grateful for things I’ve achieved, small and big. I’m constantly learning and challenging myself. I’ve learnt A LOT about myself that I never really knew before…
Crazy to think you know yourself, when you really don’t! I reminded myself to cheer on the good times even when I felt like I should hide them or not to boast or brag. I learnt thatnumbers are really just a number. Quality of work, relationships & engagement are truly important!

I’ve taken a quick moment to remember all the good 2018 provided for us. Most importantly our health and happiness. Those are the things I strive for with our family. These are the moments we live for and are awaken with. I’m very excited to start 2019 and a little sad to be leaving a great year behind!

Four Winter Outfits | Dressy & Causal with Kersh Style

Winter is here, and we all know it can be so tricky to make that switch in wardrobe. To finally add the layers and then some evenings not have as much as we dress up and go out on the town! I was lucky enough to find this very cute ladies apparel line Kersh Style and they have literally everything under the sun. From dressing up your look to really bringing it a little more casual for those cozy days inside staying warm!

The really awesome part about Kersh Style is that you can either host styled parties yourself at home with your girlfriends orrr you can even become a stylist yourself and earn some income as well! All you have to do is visit this page Become A Stylist and sign up! Super easy!

If you use code KEISHAB you can receive discounts off items you purchase and becoming a stylist to! Kind of nice knowing you could make a little bit of extra cash sitting home and possibly going out and meeting new people. The perks of becoming your own boss!

Today I’m sharing four great looks that I love from the line, a little bit of everything dressy to casual for this Winter season. 

Look 1 | Contrast Dress

I love this piece it’s super comfy, has pockets!! It’s a perfect dress for around the home or even dressing up for a night out. Theres really so much you can do with this piece!


Look 2 | Chunky Knit Cardigan 

I literally fell in love with this chunky thing the moment I saw it. I wear it alll the time. I even wear it on cold evenings in my PJ’s. It’s a staple in my closet for sure this Winter. The colour is a perfect light pink!

Look 3 | Wrap Skirt & Black Tee

A little more dressier than I normally go. But this look just had me feeling to push myself to something a little different. Once I tried it on, it just fit perfectly and knew it would make a great outfit for date night, my favourite night!

Look 4 | Cropped Leg Pant & Puff Sleeve Pullover

Kind of saving the best for last here, I’m not going to lie!! This outfit has been my favourite pieced together. Defiantly can dress it up and down. I love having both to work with. The pants look super dressy but very comfy so it makes them feel more casual. Sweater has a very sweet subtle pink colour and just as comfy as the pants!

I might add that I also have my hands on a few other pieces from Kersh Style that I’m very excited to share as well. But for now I will give you this little taste! Be sure to go check them out, and if you host a party invite me!!!

Vancouver Christmas Tradition | Santa Claus Parade

This is becoming quite the family tradition we can agree on! This was our second year visiting Vancouver this time of the year to stay the night and watch the Vancouver Santa Claus parade with the thanks to TELUS. Our family always has such a great time. It’s not to often we get a night away together or get Drew into the city at all. So when we do it’s always extra special to us!

We stayed at the Fairmont Vancouver once again, always such a nice and fun stay here. Around Christmas it always gives me that Home Alone 2 feel, The Plaza. Something about it all decorated and beautiful! The kids faces always lightup when we come here to stay.

We toured around the city late at night finding food and looking at all the lights on Robson Square. Then we just slowly walked back to the hotel. A very easy going and chill evening. The kids have a blast in the pool and their late night cookies with milk. Watching movies in bed until passing out. In the morning we woke up nice and early and hit my favourite spot. Crepe! So delicious and so close. It was awesome! And as good as always.

By the mid-afternoon the kids were ready to get some fun started. We met down by the Vancouver Art Gallery and there they had the chance to play games, face painting, crafts and listened to carols! By 1pm the parade started and we were sitting waiting patiently. 

Always so in love with the excitement and festive vibes while watching this parade. I’ve never been to a Santa Claus parade before last year. So now when I get the chance to go, always take it! The kids just have a blast to. With their hot chocolates and treats. Waiting for Santa’s float to arrive!

Every time it gets my little heart melting watching them watch the parade. Something always to look forward to with my little family!

Thank you to TELUS, Fairmont Vancouver & Vancouver Santa Claus Parade for everything you do for our family!!

Canadian Blogger Holiday Home Tour | Loving Littles Blog

Hey Friends!!

If you haven’t already watched it, myself and 5 other Canadian Bloggers put together a fun series of Insta-Stories to showcase our Holiday Decor in our home. Decorated and all themed CHRISTMAS!! How fun! You can still watch it for a little bit longer (24hour rule on stories!) But if your to late, thats ok, because we are basically sharing everything on there here today. Along with links and tags to shops and pieces we own!

As well as I’m tagging a couple DIY’s and very inexpensive ideas to decorate your home. Because it doesn’t need to cost a lot of money to turn your home into a dreamy Holiday Home.

First off we will start in the entry room… Newly renovated. I haven’t even posted before photos yet. You’ll be seeing those soon..

Entry Room 

After this room we snuck upstairs to our Living Room/Play Area. Where the main event stands tall and pretty. Our flocked Christmas Tree from Minter Gardens. It’s beautiful!

Play Area

In the living space we have all of our stockings hung on the mantel and some fresh greenery along the top. 

Living Space

For the kitchen the light was just to dark for me to even snap any photos. The biggest piece we added there was garland around the very top of our shelves along the whole one side of the kitchen. 

Then across the room we have the dining room. I set the table so that it’s usable at any moment. Something thats simple but fancy! Greenery, candles, wine, brass ornaments. Very woodsy and outdoor feel which I love, it makes it feel so cozy in this space!

Dining Room

Along the one side of the wall in the dining room we have this antique hutch I found years ago. There I placed our Google Home Max for Christmas music, candles, a few other little decorations I have picked up along the way including some DIY’S!
