Cotton Candy Love

I don't know if it's because the sun has been out this week or what... but I'm itching for summer bad! I've been wearing socks as little as possible and pants have become optional in my home (because I'm wearing shorts).

Working retail has only fired up my want for warm weather. I cash out customers buying hot dogs, buns, ice cream, and pop. They are clearly having a barbecue and I want one of my own! At work, there's 2 aisles filled with summer-type candy and accessories... sun umbrellas, citronella candles, marshmallows, gummi shark candy, and cotton candy!

After browsing through Pinterest over the last week or so, it's clear I'm not the only person with summer on the brain. I may have to stock up on cotton candy to make some of these amazing treats!

Wine + Cotton Candy... yes please!

Lemonade + Cotton Candy... sounds like the perfect summer drink!

Currently, all my windows and curtains are wide open. I just need to keep reminding myself that summer is around the corner!

  1. Summer will be here soon! It's been getting sunnier and warmer here in England too, so I'm getting excited for nice weather and getting fun things planned with my friends! Those candy floss s'mores look gorgeous!

  2. I'm looking forward to summer too, did my first pedi of the season and dug out my self tanning lotion for my legs. Yeah! and that wine + cotton candy? I don't normally drink wine, but that looks good.

  3. Wine and cotton candy? Sounds absolutely delicious, and dangerous! :p xx

  4. I've tried candy floss with lemonade and it's delicious! It's quite nice in England at the moment but I don't trust it so I'm still carrying a jacket with me.

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
