What I'm Loving Now

So this past week I finished my Divergent audio book. The entire book was great. The characters and setting are described so perfectly. I got into the book really quickly and by mid-way through, I was very addicted. I ended up staying up later than I should have finishing the book the other night. Damn. The last 1/4 of the book is crazy! I'm so excited to go onto the next book, Insurgent. And I'm also really excited for the movie next year.

I have a few other audio books lined up to listen to. I'm not sure what I'm going to listen to next. I do know more John Green and Insurgent will be at the top of my list, or close to it.

I also finished up Season 3 of Doctor Who this week. Have you seen the episode 'Blink'? Holy crap. It creeped me out! As soon as the episode starts and you hear the Doctor say " Don't Blink. Blink and you're dead. Don't turn your back. Don't look away. And don't blink. Good luck.", you can tell the episode is going to be intense. I completely fell in love with the main character in this episode, Sally Sparrows, who is played by Carey Mulligan. 

Sally Sparrow

I raced through the last few episodes of the season. The story line was so interesting. I'm looking forward to moving onto the Christmas special and then Season 4. But for now I'm going to take a small break and watch the first season of Orphan Black.

As for music, I have found myself addicted to Lorde's The Love Club EP. I cannot stop listening to it. It's been on repeat most days while I'm on the computer. You can actually listen to it all here:

I cannot wait to get my hands on her full length album, Pure Heroine!

What have you been watching, reading and listening to?

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…
