I’m a cat lady at heart. Yes, that is my opening statement to this DIY baby kitty costume post.

It has been a busy summer! With all of the great beauty events I’ve gone to this summer, I have lots of October favourites that I’d love to share with you. If you’re out on the market looking for something new, take a look here to see which items you might want to add to your beauty routine. Almost all of the items below can be found at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. 😉 October Beauty Favourites STILA I’ve been using Stila cosmetics for a few years now and I haven’t come across a Stila product that I didn’t like. I’ve been obsessing over these Stay All Day Liquid Lipsticks, Stay All Day Foundation & Concealer and the Stila Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner. The liquid lipstick is true to colour and speaking of colour comes in so many different shades. It’s staying power after eating/drinking blows my mind. I never…

Top 8 Halloween Movies/Shows to watch on Netflix

Halloween movies or shows are a must to watch in the days leading up to October 31st. The best way to set the mood for all the events to come. Halloween parties, going to Haunted Houses and of course trick or treating; to name a few. Last year we took our son trick or treating and the year before that and it was so much fun to see his reaction to different costumes. The first year he wasn’t scared of anything until he saw a woman dressed up as Winnie the Pooh! That was a big surprise. This year my husband and I are so excited to get back into watching Stranger Things. It’s back on Netflix on October 27th. Just in time for Halloween. Which leads me to the big question. Binge watch Stranger Things 2 or take the kids trick or treating? We’re going to do both! Top…

We moved into our home over a year ago and have been slowly working on each room in the house with furniture and organization. It’s hard to manage having two children under two and being on maternity leave gives us a smaller budget to work with then usual. ENDY Mattress Review and Unboxing Speaking of budget, the Endy mattress is super affordable, starting price at $675 CAD. They also offer a 6-month, interest-free financing, to make it easier than ever to afford an Endy. Essentially you just pay it off in 6 equal, monthly installments. The box and the mattress are not heavy at all. I took it from the door to the…
