What I'm Loving Now

This Spring and Summer I have found myself getting giddy like I did when I was 13 years old for nail polish. In early Spring, I actually stopped at the nail polish display to look for a new colour for my toes since the weather was getting nicer and what did I see? So many different glitter and confetti nail polishes! That was my weakness when I was a young teenager!

I picked up two Revlon polishes in the Spring:



I'm completely in love with both of them! I've been wearing them constantly and by themselves. I like the semi-sheer look and it's not so noticeable when it starts to chip off.

I actually paired Girly with the Pinkie Pie polish I got for my birthday. My toes look like pink frosting!

Pinkie Pie toes! #MLP #mylittlepony

While looking at nail polishes, I've been drooling over the Nicole by OPI line... they have so many glitter and confetti polishes! Like ones with hearts and stars. Seriously, my inner 13 year old keeps getting excited when I look at the polishes. I ended up buying one of the polishes from the Selena Gomez line for Nicole by OPI. I picked up Confetti Fun and just put two coats on with no other colour underneath and it looks so awesome! This isn't my photo but this is exactly what my nails look like:


Anyways, that's enough nail polish talk. As usual, I'm normally behind on new television shows. But I actually jumped on this show sooner than normal. I have 3 episodes left of Orange is the New Black and I'm seriously addicted! I kept hearing about the show on twitter and I had no idea who was in the show, but I love the cast! And I love Laura Prepon all over again (first time was as Donna in That 70s Show).  


I'm also watching and about half way through Season 7 of Supernatural. Orange is the New Black slowed me down a bit, but the Winchester Boys have been doing an excellent job entertaining me in this season though. 

Do you check out the shirt a day sites? I could have a serious spending problem if I didn't have self control. They always have the cutest geeky mash-up shirts. Well, Tuesday night as I was going to bed I received an email from Ript Apparel for their shirt that was going on sale the next day... I almost died from the cuteness... a Powerpuff Girls and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles mash-up?!?! Holy crap. I definitely bought this shirt and I'm beyond excited to get it in the mail! 

What have you been loving lately?

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 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 …

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…
