We finally committed and entered the king sized bed family! It’s been a long time coming but we finally just made the plunge.…
We are in the midst of refreshing up our master bedroom! Cue the happy tears!! We are upgrading our queen to a king and fully transforming the style of our adult room. Which means the floral print is gone. And adding pops of pink to my room is always a must. It really is a colour that breathes fresh air into any room.…
Creating a Cozy Reading Corner with JYSK
Our family loves to create cozy spaces. Whether it’s with blankets, dim lights and movies. We love cozy & comfy spots in our home. We are always trying to create that “cozy” feel. One thing that has been on my list to-do for some time now has been to create a cozy reading corner. Just for me and possibly the rest of my family! But this one I had thought to dedicate just for myself. If I strangely ever get some quiet time I’d like to have that little space just for me to cozy into and just chill. And if children like to join me and relax then even more of a reason to do this!…
If there is one thing blatantly obvious in our home, it’s the fact that I love lamps. I’m a sucker for that dim cozy light in every room you walk into. Soft and soothing, it’s just so relaxing to me. Every room in our home has a lamp. With that comes a large amount of light bulbs. Every light bulb in our home does get recycled properly thanks to learning more about light recycling. But like myself, I’m sure you have some questions and need a little help in the right direction when it comes to recycling light bulbs. Where to take them? Why we do it? The benefits?…
A girl can dream right?? I know, it’s right after the Holidays and not only am I talking about Spring. But seriously this home collection line nails it every season. Everything sparks joy in me! If only I could afford to fill my home with every piece so for now, I’ll sit back and dream about it. Find what I love and see whats on trend this year.
Always such a sucker for neutrals with a splash of colour. And the modern farmhouse vibe. I can’t really seem to narrow my style down to just one or the other. I really loveee seeing a mix in our home. The light airy pieces feel so cozy. With Christmas over and seeing all of the clutter disappear overnight I felt the slight urge to fill it. Even though I know I don’t need to, it’s utterly hard to resist when you see gorgeous things like this.
But I’m a believer in better quality over quantity. So things like this when they come into our home, I treat it with lots of love and cherish it a little more. And hide it from children of course! hahaa

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…

A big thank you to the help from

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

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!

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!

GIVEAWAY CLOSED WINNER ANNOUNCED SOON…. THANK YOU EVERYONE SO MUCH FOR ENTERING!
About two years ago now, when we were first scattered on the real estate market. First time buyers searching for a home. We ran into so many dilemmas. So many places just didn’t feel like us. Sure we could create it to make it feel like us. But you always want the ahh feeling. SOmething in your home has to give you that ahh feeling. That feeling of being safe, cozy, kinda quiet. The feeling where your whole body sinks into a space and you feel ease. …
