I finally did it.... I cut my hair to my shoulders again.


I've been contemplating on cutting it for months now. Actually, years. I've been growing my hair for over 2 years now (I can use my wedding as measurement for this). But lately I've been wanting a change so bad. And as much as I love bangs and considered them again, they're too much work for me. I'm a low maintenance girl and bangs caused me so much stress... yes, stress! The weather plays a huge part on how my hair looks and what the texture is like. And with bangs, I just can't always control them.

Hair cut

I really like it! The hairdresser straightened it for me which I won't be doing often. So I want to see what it's like with my natural wave. It will definitely be cooler on my neck and shoulders throughout the summer.

So besides the hair cut, life is still the same.... work and packing like a fool for the move!

  1. Love your new do! Suits you very much :-)

  2. Ooooh! Very cute! Now I want to cut my hair short again, too!!

  3. Yay! Looks good.

    I cut my hair about two years ago...But I'm taking another 14 months to grow it out so that I hopefully have a really good length for my wedding. Then it might be back to short.

    But I have the same thing - super curly hair! So it can take some extra work.

    Have a lovely day, and good luck with all the craziness!

  4. I know what you mean about bangs -sooo much work.

    The new cut looks great! And it will feel so much better in the sticky hot summer months not having longer hair.

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…
