Monthly Recap; March

What an amazing month March was! I am so proud of the personal growth that has begun this month. I pushed myself to hit goals I never thought I would, I started a new chapter in my life with getting my own apartment and I had awesome opportunities and adventures with the people I love. Check all the posts I created this past month! I hope you enjoy

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!

Spring Wardrobe Wishlist

It is about that time where I update my wardrobe and I bring in new colours and textures that are light and airy for Spring. Before I create this capsule wardrobe I wanted to put together some items that I have been seeing in stores and online that I would love to be a part of my capsule wardrobe: Spring Edition. 

I have yet to create a capsule wardrobe in the spring or summer so with that in mind I honestly do not remember what I have packed away that needs to come out and be worn. I feel that I may be lacking in the staple pieces department and want to make sure I am covered that way. The items about are definitely staple items and would work in multiple seasons. 

It is still very cold where I live so I do not see myself getting my spring capsule wardrobe together yet but when I do I will be posting about it (naturally). 

What is on your wishlist for Spring time?

Spring Decor Trends 2016

Spring is in the air (and if it's not then I am pretending it is)! I am so ready for the cold weather to melt away and bring the sun back out. I have never been one for winter time and the only reason I enjoy the colder months is because of the cozy indoor decor we can play with. 

I took a trip today into Home Sense and Winners  to take a look at what trends were popping up for home decor! I am in love with the pantone colour trends that are out currently. 

This post on instagram by HomeSenseCanada was what drew me in! 

I am usually only drawn to white/black/grey/gold decor but something about this quartz colour gets me. 

So off  I went to scope out what I could find in stores!

I bought a few things at Homesense which I will be posting a haul very soon! But the trends I saw today in the store were lovely!

 Lots of pastels to brighten up a space, wood and metal tones to define and contrast against the furs and flowers that can bring dimension and comfort into a space.

I am loving the look of rustic wood mixed with pastel paint and ombre drawers. I am working on a DIY of a nightstand (which I should be done soon!) and if I can master that DIY I would love to do a project incorporating drawers that ombre! 

What are you loving this spring for home decor and what is on your wishlist to buy?!
