Streamer PomPom Garland | DIY


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.

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!

Our New Modern Design Kitchen Sink + BLANCO Canada

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!

DIY | Floral Heart Wreath

A few weeks ago a friend had reached out to me about needing some help with her daughters 2nd birthday. She needed two things from me; to take some photos and to make up some florals. She had visioned something special and I helped her make it happen and created it! It turned out way better then I imagined. It was also way easier then I thought it would be!…

Master Bathroom Refresh Reveal | Before & After

This home project feels like it’s been taking us forever, in reality it really hasn’t. But because it was on our “list to do” since finishing our bedroom it feels over due. Either way with our hectic schedules we managed to do a little something just to freshen it up a little bit and have it flow nicely with our master bedroom. Our hearts are longing to re-do the floors and vanity but with our rookie moves we’ll slowly start to learn the process there and eventually change those up to….

Heart Churro Waffles | Recipe

Good Morning!!

Now these might look like some normal yummy tasting waffles to you, but I added something a little more special to make them taste even better. I made these for the Valentines Day we had last week, and as a failed mother I made them after Owen went to school so when he came home after and there was only one left for him… Let’s just say I got into some BIG trouble! So I defiantly need to make these again they were that good. Easy to!…

Celebrate Your Galentine {Brunch Party}

One of my biggest goals for this new year, after leaving my job was to make more of an effort to visit my friends. To have more coffee dates, play dates and just good old fashion hang out time. Reconnecting and enjoying the friendships that are closest to me. Somewhere down the line, between the house, full time work, kids etc. It was one thing that I sometimes slacked, not on purpose but just because life gets way to busy and out of control!…
