Snowball fight in Style with the Warmest Sweater Ever!

I had no Instagram post for Christmas Day this year and actually no IG stories. Nor was I on Twitter, or pinning stuff on Pinterest. I was enjoying the day with our family and celebrating our wedding anniversary. Among other stuff we do on our anniversary, one of them is to just be silly and spontaneous. Okay, that’s something we do on almost every holiday break. But you get it. We put on some warm clothes and headed out to our backyard patio to have a snowball fight with the fresh snowfall we had just gotten in Mississauga. Snowball fight in Style with the Warmest Sweater Ever! Of course, my sister from MAC Decor was prepared with the camera and got some great shots! She does wedding and events decor if anyone is looking. Check her out on Instagram: MAC Decor – Toronto. Do you remember an epic snowball fight? I…

What I Wear on my Casual Days – Comfort is Everything! [STYLE]

I usually post more put together, fancy schmancy outfits and the orchestrated flat lays of food and product but this time I’m going to get real. Realest of the real. What I wear on my casual days. So I get asked this a lot from those who aren’t parents yet. What I Wear on my Casual Days – Comfort is Everything! [STYLE] “What’s it like? What’s it like to be a mom?” That’s a heavy question, because, I mean… where do I start? So according to how my day is going, I give an answer based on the first word that comes to my mind. It could be anywhere from the spectrum of “Help me!” to “it’s a huge blessing.” Nonetheless, it is a crazy schedule that never ends. When I’m not going to events, parties and I’m just staying home or doing the usual running errands in the neighborhood. I have…

What Happens During Brunch With Bloggers

During my early years as a blogger, I wondered what it would be like to sit among other like-minded individuals in the blogging world. So here I am, this year, with lots of breakfast, lunch/brunch and dinners with other bloggers and I gotta say, what an awesome experience! Some bloggers are very different in person from what I actually thought they’d be like according to their posts and online voice. And others, like the below crew, are exactly the same offline as they present themselves online. When they’re exactly the same, I have to admit I get such a feel-good feeling. It’s wonderful to see that realness and authenticity come to life. So here’s what happens during brunch with bloggers: Bloggers – Left to right: YesMissy – Cat Forsley – Dianas Healthy Living – Maggie Adhami – ME – Shoetease What Happens During Brunch With Bloggers Last month I met up with…

The wait for the long weekend is over! *insert happy dance* That one extra day of having my husband home makes a world of a difference. It means I get to do so much more than I usually do on the weekends.

Spring Cleaning For a Wardrobe Refresh [Fashion]

Spring flowers are blooming, people are gardening and the spring trends have started to roll into all of our favourite stores! Over the years, I’ve collected so many clothes, to a borderline hoarder point. I have an excessive amount of clothes that I haven’t worn in years. This made me realise it was time for a Spring cleaning wardrobe refresh.   Spring Cleaning For a Wardrobe Refresh… My goal for a wardrobe refresh was to add more neutrals to my closet and get rid of all the clothes that were colours, prints or designs I couldn’t  see myself wearing again.

Dixie Outlet Mall Shopping Challenge + GIVEAWAY!

I absolutely love this time of the year! How can anyone not? It’s full of love, surprises and so much cheer. I’m really looking forward to the holidays, especially since it’s also our wedding anniversary on Dec 25th. Every time I tell people that, the reactions I get are either “OMG, you guys are crazy! How did you manage?” or “Awee that’s so cute” or how about.. “You guys must really love Christmas!” To be honest, it’s a bit of all three. Okay, so because we have our anniversary and the holidays are among us, I get really conscious about how much and where I spend my money.
