Hello 2018.

Where has this past year gone? 

IMG_7761PS.jpg

I took a little break from blogging and keeping up with my social media and I can honestly say I really missed it. 

In the past year things have been pretty busy; I got married, moved out of my apartment and I am in the process of getting my USA Visa. 

But alas I am back! 
I am so happy to be back sharing the things I love on my blog and Instagram.  

What do you want to see more posts about?! I am ready to get back into the swing of things and get more posts out to the world!

My Wedding Dreamboard

Up until the beginning of January I was totally clueless as to what I really wanted for our wedding and what my options were! All I knew is that I wanted a more intimate wedding with our close family and friends to celebrate the moment with us! 

When all of the holidays ended and I had time to do some pinterest searching (which seriously turned out to be hours and hours of falling down a long dark wedding pins hole!), I finially decided on a few major details that I wanted for us! 

I have gathered up some screenshots of some of my favourite wedding ideas and posted them below! I figured I needed a place to house all of the ideas I liked and a blog post sounded like the best plan. 

 

I am super excited to sit down and start creating centerpieces for the tables as well as take a try at making the seating chart! Let me know if you have any helpful hints or ideas you think would work for us! I love the help! I have booked some of the wedding venues already and I am beyond excited for the planning process!

Road Trip to Walter's Falls

This past weekend I went on a road trip with my boyfriend and a few friends. One of my friends found a great deal on TravelZoo at a Hotel up North in Walter's Falls, Ontario. None of us or anyone that we talked to had any clue as to where Walter's Falls is located but basically its up near Owen Sound, Ontario. 

We left on Friday morning to begin our travels and hit the road. With only one pit stop in London, Ontario we got there around 5PM where the weather was a bit chillier and there was more of a wind. The hotel was a beautiful older establishment that had the perfect view of the falls through the dining room windows. This location was definitely made to host a few weddings! 

The next day we set out on an adventure hiking through the Walter's Falls Loop on the Bruce Trail. Which was an adventure in itself! So many beautiful sights that you don't get to appreciate in your everyday life. We had a blast hiking for a few hours and actually wished we could do it again the next day! 

All of the meals at the hotel that we had were fantastic! Breakfast was maple walnut french toast with scones on the side and dinner was an amazing lobster ravioli! 

This trip was all about relaxing and spending quality time with some of the people I am the closest with! I am glad to have shared this memory with them and I cannot wait to go on our next adventure wherever that may take us! 

Are you heading anywhere soon?! I would love to hear about it, maybe get some inspiration for my next adventure!

March Break Goals

March Break is the time if the year where I get a nice week to relax with no work and all the time to myself to recharge and stay motivated to move forward with all of my goals. I am very envious of everyone who is going away on an exotic trip for the week (who wouldn't love to be in a warmer climate?).

Even though I am not going anywhere exotic and warm I am going on a little trip for a few days with my boyfriend and a few friends (be ready for a vacation post). No matter how the weather ends up being for those days we have planned to go on a hike and spend our time outdoors. Which to be honest, I am so ready to disconnect myself from the online world for a day and spend my time with amazing people having amazing experiences. 

My goals for this break are pretty simple;

  • I would like to stay with doing my #30DayPilatesBody March Challenge (I feel that I may lose a day here or there but I want to focus on attempting to do all of the days during my break!) I have yet to miss a challenge day! Its not to late to start if you want to join in on the challenge! 
  • I would like to work on some DIY and pinterest hacks! I want to start my nightstand DIY as well as make another pinterest meal! 
  • Since I will not be doing anything for work I want to stock my blog up with some new posts as well as give it some TLC. There are some things I have been meaning to fix or update and this would be the perfect time to do so!
  • Other than create great memories with friends and loved ones I want to try and capture them.. I was thinking about possibly not only taking photos of my experiences during the break but as well as a few videos. I would love to get my feet wet and jump into making some videos to post here on my blog!

I know these goals are pretty simple and easy to accomplish but we all know that when we get into relaxation mode even the easiest of tasks seems like pulling teeth! 

If you have March Break next week I hope you have an amazing time doing things you love and creating memories with those you love!

Weekend RoundUp: 03.05.16

Writing my weekend round up post is always bitter sweet! I love recapping what has happened during my days off and quality time with my friends and loved ones but it also reminds me of how fast it went and how much I am going to miss it! 

This weekend was pretty laid back, we didn't have many plans (other than family dinners) and sort of just went with the flow and did what we decided to in the moment. 

I decided to go minimal with my make-up on Saturday and skip the eyeliner..... WHAT! I am an addict to my thick black winged liner ( I even did a post on how I perfect my cateyes)! It was refreshing to change up my look for the day and it actually took quite a bit of time off my getting ready clock! 

Saturday afternoon we went out to visit my parents at their new house that they are currently remodelling. We had an awesome time there just hanging out and looking at all the hard work and progress that has come along since the last time I visited! 

I snapped a quick picture of the main staircase. I am in love with the look of the white classic stairs and the exposed wood of the walls! 

We ended the night with some family dinner and getting together with friends to watch the fights. Sunday morning we had some fun decorating plastic Easter eggs and lounging around the house, with coffee of course! 

We headed out for some lunch at a local sushi place. My OOTD consists of a denim top from Target, blush jeans from Material Girl Line  at The Bay, booties from Call it Spring & watch from Daniel Wellington.

I tried to add a bit of spring into the house and put out some new white tulips in my bathroom. I love the subtle change that it makes.. look forward to a decor post on Spring updates. 

Now winding down from a great weekend makes me feel ready to start another amazing week doing all things that I love. I cannot wait to share my journey with everyone.

Time for some Davids Tea -Movie Night tea and get myself ready for the week. 

I would love to hear about your  weekend! Post in the comments below!

What I Wore 02.21.16

This weekend pretty laid back compared to the last. I had one event on Saturday night and the rest was filled with lounging around and drinking too much coffee! Here is a quick photo diary of what I wore this weekend. 

Saturday Day

Saturday day I had a few errands to run and then went over to my cousins place for moral support while she got her wedding trial make-up done. I decided to wear something casual and since the weather was beautiful out I took total advantage of not wearing my jacket in my car (I even rolled my window half way down! haha). 

Chambray top Target, Belt Forever21, Black skinny jeans American Eagle, Booties Call It Spring

Saturday Evening 

I got to be a part of the Welcome Home to Windsor event held for the Syrian refugee families that are now a part of our community. It was truly an amazing event to be a part of, I am so glad to be in a community with such a big heart. 

(Top Dynamite, Slacks H&M, Heels  Aldo , Trenchcoat Forever21)

This weekend made me feel a part of such an amazing community and proud to be a part of something bigger. Thank you to the World Water Operator Training Centre & the Syrian Canadian Council for putting on such a beautiful event. 

What were you up to this weekend? I would love to hear about it :)

California 2015

I feel like this past week I have neglected my blog :( 
I was on an amazing trip to California with my boyfriend to visit some family and of course I wanted to take the opportunity to snap some photos while there. 
Here are a few photos from our day trip to Napa Valley :)
