What I'm Loving Now

Well we had our first 'snow storm' yesterday. I put it in quotations because we didn't get much accumulation but the roads were hell! There were so many car accidents and it just snowed for like 8 hours straight. Today, the sun is out but the winds are strong and we're sitting at -22 degrees Celsius. To say it's cold in my place is an understatement. You can feel a draft coming from every window. I'm wearing layers and the cats are snuggled in blankets, together, on the couch.

Anyways, onto my current obsessions...


With the weather turning freezing and snowy this week, Pusheen's newest cartoon is one of my favourite things right now!


I finished the second book in the Divergent trilogy earlier this week. I listened to the audio book version of Insurgent and I can't express how perfect Emma Galvin's voice is as 'Tris'. But the book... oh man. I was hooked pretty quickly when I started the second book. The story picks up right where Divergent ends and the action just starts quickly. And how Insurgent ends... damn. I cannot wait to start on Allegiant! And my excitement to see Divergent in theatres next Spring keeps getting stronger as I grow more and more attached to the characters. 

Short Bangs
Surprised? I'm guessing not. My side bangs from late summer have grown into awkward layers. My hair colour has faded to a gross orange. I'm so not loving my hair. But I want to grow it out. I'm itching to try really short bangs though... something to frame my face when I put my hair in a pony. But I can't decide if they'd be more or less work than side bangs. Ugh!

I hope your weekend has been lovely so far! I've spent mine Christmas shopping, watching Christmas movies, and organizing the Holiday Card Swap over at IGGPPC. Oh and I'm listening to Christmas music right now. Can you tell I love this season?

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…
