What I'm Loving Now

What have you been reading and watching lately? There are SO many television shows and books I want to get too! I'm so thankful when I can multi-task, like with audio books. I love being able to listen to books while I sew or bake or clean. 

Cinder

After numerous recommendations, I got The Lunar Chronicles audio books. The first book in the series is Cinder. It's a spin on the classic Cinderella fairy tale. Now let me tell you, it's nothing like you expect! But in a very good way. Cinder is a cyborg living in New Beijing at some point in the future. There's hovercrafts, a plague, and lunar people. It's a great story and I flew through the book. But the ending leaves you with so many unanswered questions. I had to start the second book in the series, Scarlet, right away to continue the story. I'm maybe 1/3 through Scarlet and so far it's almost as good as Cinder. 



Cougar Town 

So many television shows have already finished for the season and the rest are a couple of episodes away to ending for the season. Since I didn't have as many shows to watch recently, I ended up power watching Season 5 of Cougar Town. The show is so quirky and funny. I really love some of the characters. And there was some good story lines and character development in this season.


Marshmallow Macaron Tea

During a recent trip to the mall I stopped in Teavana to check out their new Spring teas. As soon as I smelled the Marshmallow Macaron tea, I knew it had to come home with me. It smells so sweet and delicious. And now I can't stop drinking it. It's delicious! Very vanilla-tasting, with a marshmallow aftertaste. And the tea is pink after it steeps and of course that matters. I highly recommend this tea if you're a fan of vanilla and sweet teas!


I hope you're having a wonderful weekend!

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…
