What I'm Loving Now

Christmas is in 4 days?!?! How crazy is that? I have to admit I'm super excited for all the Christmas festivities next week! For now, these are a few things I'm loving at the moment.

Winter Boots

Sudbury is definitely going to have a 'white Christmas'. The snow arrived a few weeks ago and it hasn't left. We get dumped on every few nights and we have large snow piles surrounding our parking lots here. I never ever thought I'd buy, appreciate, and love Winter boots. But here I am, wearing my new Winter boots as much as possible. My feet stay warm and dry! I'm so in love with them!

The Carrie Diaries

I'm sure you've noticed that a lot of TV shows are on their Christmas hiatus already and some have been for a couple of weeks now. So after talking to a friend I thought I'd catch up on The Carrie Diaries. I'm a big fan of Sex and the City and I was excited to see The Carries Diaries. I started watching it last year and I liked it but for whatever reason I lost track of when it was on and just never kept caught up. So I'm about finished the first season and I'm excited to start on the second season since I know she meets Samantha. I really adore this show. I love the fashion, hair, makeup, the actors and characters. It's a fun and addictive show.

Have you watched The Carrie Diaries? What do you think? 

Creative Inspiration

This month has been pretty insane at work. I work a part-time retail job which was basically a full-time job this month. And well, it's Christmas, so work has been nuts. These crazy shifts only make me more motivated to go home and work on my own personal projects. When I saw this t-shirt on Pinterest, it made me so happy because the quote is just perfect. 

This shirt = my goal in life. 

Well, I hope you're having a lovely weekend and you're not having to fight the crowds at stores.

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…
