What I'm Loving Now

How was your week? Mine was quite busy and productive. Between prepping for the move and the new house, and also getting ready for Fan Expo, I am never without something to do! But it's been a fun week and a great start to the Summer! So onto what I'm obsessed with currently... 

Davids Tea

A little over a week ago Davids Tea tweeted that they would be giving away samples of their new tea flavour in all orders that week. And what was this new tea flavour? Cotton Candy! I actually freaked out a little and ran to tell Adam about this new tea. This past week I received an email from them about their new collection - The Carnival Collection. I have never loved one of their collections as much as I do this one. I want everything! I'm in love with their gradient mugs and I'm definitely going to be ordering some cotton candy and caramel corn tea!

Orange Is The New Black

The weekend of Niagara Falls Comic Con, the second season of Orange Is The New Black was released on Netflix. I don't know if you've seen the first season, but the show completely grew on me and the season finale just left you wanting more. So as soon as I got home from the convention, I started the second season and completely devoured it. I finished it this week. And just like with the first season, it took a few episodes to really get into the story line. But I really love how this season ended and what stories have been set up for the third season. 

Moonlight Beach

We've been to Moonlight Beach twice this week and it was so wonderful both times! Last year I absolutely fell in love with this beach, which is one of the beaches along Ramsey Lake. We spent a lot of time there last Summer and I'm already planning on spending a good chunk of my time there this Summer too. We went into the water today and it was surprisingly warm and so refreshing considering how hot it was today. My goal is to visit it at least once a week this Summer. 

I hope you're having a fantastic weekend!

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…
