Summer and Autumn Movies

This summer was filled with big movies as usual, but I really liked so many of them! It felt like every week there was a new movie out that we wanted to see. We saw almost everything we wanted to see and most of them lived up to their hype and some even surprised me because I liked them more than I expected.

This Is The End was one of the movies that surprised me. The trailer made the movie look hilarious but I was afraid all the funny parts were in the trailer but I seriously laughed through the majority of this movie. I really, really liked it.


As I stated before, The Wolverine disappointed me in some ways but I still really enjoyed the movie. It was a kickass movie and Hugh Jackman did an awesome job portraying Wolverine.

I liked the first Star Trek movie, but this one had so much more action than I expected. It was a great movie from start to finish and I really adore the actors in this movie. 

Kick-Ass 2 was a great and fun movie. It was more graphic and violent than I had thought it would be, but it was still very enjoyable. It had the perfect 'comic book' feel to it and I loved Hit-Girl's growth in this movie. 

After scanning the movie listings for this week, it hit me that the summer movies have come and gone and there's not a movie coming out every week that I want to see.  But there are a few movies that stand out to me and I'm excited to see this Autumn/early Winter.

Just a few of the movies that I'm really excited for:
- Austenland (Jane Austen and Keri Russell <3)
- Thor: The Dark World (I really liked the first one and I'm so excited to see the sequel!)
- The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (I'm SO excited to see this movie since it was my favourite novel of the trilogy!)
- Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (I really love the first movie and the cast they've brought on for this one looks awesome!)

What movies are you looking forward to seeing?

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…
