I think it’s a safe bet that there’s at least one of us out there that’s eyeing up our home and dreaming all the big things for these rooms. But in order to do some of these things it takes money and a lot of work to do them. I’m here to tell you that sometimes little changes can make a big difference. All you need is some really awesome Beauti-Tone paint from Home Hardware and some small fixtures to freshen up any room in your home.
Let’s Talk About Essential Oils!!
They are quite literally all the rage right now and for sooo many good reasons. We’ve been hearing all the different ways that essential oils can make their way into our lives. To make us feel better and heal better. I’m an oil believer and constantly have oil flowing through the house at all hours in our diffuser. But I recently started to learn more about a company called Simply Earth.…

It’s all about the little ones this year, and sharing the love on Valentines Day. Celebrating something sweet and meaningful. I love to show the kids some fun and treats on this day and leading up to it. I love that it doesn’t have to be about presents and all about treats. To me it’s about showing them the fun in the day, to celebrate people we love everyday. Appreciation for relationships that matter in our life. And while doing that making it fun and creative!…
Not that long ago I was asked to be apart of a wonderful festive collaboration with a few of my close friends We managed to create some fun Holiday ideas & DIY’s to bring together this beautiful Holiday Table Setting.

Who’s down for a easy DIY?? I usually go through waves like a roller coaster. Sometimes I just crave them and itch for a new one and sometimes I want to stay far away from a DIY as much as possible! Haha But once I do accomplish a really cute one it really makes me happy and thats when I crave to do more. …
I’m a candle addict! I loveee candles and I love the glass jars that some of these candles come in. So overtime I’ve been using my candles down to the bitter end and I’ve been sitting them aside for a rainy day project. I finally marked something off my to-do list the other weekend and put them all together and did something with them!…
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!…
Besides trick or treating with your kids what other fun things do you do with them that are fun for Halloween?? Do you host parties or make special treats??…
Our kitchen sink was in need of an update. To the wandering eye you probably wouldn’t think so, but as a busy family, the more and more we used our sad little faucet we knew it was time to freshen it up just a bit. We turned to a very trusted brand that I had the pleasure of meeting back in September at Blog Podium, BLANCO Canada.
It was literally love at first sight for me. The design, colours, looks and not to forget the quality and craftsmanship just exceeds expectations. I love the dark look and sleek feel in our already darker kitchen. Which in the future if we decide to upgrade to a brighter and fresher area the sink will be very versatile and be long lasting with the flow with a newly updated kitchen. Future goals! Don’t tell Drew;)
Our proviso sink and faucet were built in by the previous owners of our townhouse, so we’re not really sure how old it was or the brand they had used. Drew did this little/big project all on his own with no previous experience at all. I’m actually so impressed with how quick it was to change up and install. All of the pieces were in tact, measurements were perfect and everything literally just fell into place for us.
We went with the ALTA Dual Finish faucet in Chrome and Cinder. Pulls out to a very nice length with two different spray features. All very powerful! For the sink we went with a very elegant VISION Dual Sink in Cinder as well. It’s a very easy sink to clean and any left-over residue hides nicely within the colour even if you might have totally forgotten to clean it up!
