What I'm Loving Now

I'm starting to feel an itch for Spring... stores at the mall are bringing out all their Spring stock - pastel coloured clothes, Easter decorations, patio sets. I'm feeling a strong urge for sunshine, going outside without a coat, and to garden (crazy, I know!).

Spring Treats

I've been finding myself pinning Spring-inspired desserts on Pinterest lately. Whether it's pretty pastel coloured desserts or light and fruity flavoured ones. When I saw this cake on there, my jaw dropped. It's gorgeous! The light pink and blue meringues are too sweet.


I recently picked up a bunch of Jello mixes because I've been craving it. Something sweet, but not too heavy. A few days ago I made cherry Jello with ginger ale (instead of the cold water it asks for) and it was SO good! I plan on making another batch with the ginger ale, but with a different flavour of Jello. Even though we rarely have pop in our house, I think I'll need to pick some up when it goes on sale to try other flavour combinations. 

Spring Dresses

How pretty is this dress?! It's a longer length, made of cotton, and the perfect colour. It's pretty much my dream dress for Spring. 

What are you loving right now?

  1. Making jelly (as we call it over here) with other liquids is genius! I tried making it once with vodka to create vodka jello shots. It didn't work (because I used too much vodka... oops!) so we had a bowl of it on the table which people had to scoop into cups. Like the world's deadliest punch :p xxx

    1. haha. I've never made Jello shots but I've tasted some yummy ones.

  2. That dress is so pretty. You should see the dresses we got in our shop today. So ready for Spring and Summer. They're from this fair trade company: Most of them are actually cheaper than Modcloth and they're all handmade (and most importantly super cute). I thought you would like to look at them. And that Jello sounds really tasty. I want to try cream soda with orange Jello, like a creamsicle!

    1. Your shop has super adorable dresses! Thanks for sending me the link.

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…
