What I'm Loving Now

P.S. I Still Love You

It's satisfying flying through a good book. I moved P.S. I Still Love You right to the top of my to-read pile after devouring the first book. I find the series adorable and I'm a big fan of the narrator who narrates the audio books. The lead character, Lara Jean, is a very cute character and I love her enthusiasm for themed parties, her adoration for old-fashion and vintage things, and of course, her love of baking. This book is an easy, light, feel-good read. It was perfect for summertime.


Face Masks

I recently visited The Face Shop during my last trip to Hamilton and I fell in love with the store instantly. They had a whole wall of Korean face masks - you know the paper masks with cut out holes for the mouth and eyes? I wanted to buy one of each but I settled on ones that'll be appropriate for the next few months. Ones to help exhausted skin from the hot summer and preparing for Fan Expo and then moisturizing and rejuvenating masks for the cool weather to come.


Other things I'm loving - Pretty Little Liars Season 5, Lola And The Boy Next Door audio book, Mad Men season 5, s'mores everything!

Have a good weekend!

  1. I am ADDICTED to sheet masks. I've even seen them pop up in Dollarama from time to time, but Korean ones are still my favourite.

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…
