What I'm Loving Now

I feel like my to-read and to-watch pile have grown massive over the Summer! So many friends have been recommending books and television shows. I guess as the temperatures drop and the sun sets earlier, I'll have more time in the evenings to snuggle up with a cat to get through these piles.

Lola And The Boy Next Door

Lola And The Boy Next Door is the second book in a series after Anna And The French Kiss. I was told by numerous people that Lola And The Boy Next Door was even better than the first book and it was! The two main characters, Lola and Cricket, were so lovable and flawed and just perfect. I got hooked quickly while listening to the audio book. I really like how they included Anna and Étienne (from Anna And The French Kiss) in this book too. I'm very excited to start the last book in the series, Isla And The Happily Ever After. We'll see if the next couple can top my love for Lola and Cricket. 

Pretty Little Liars

I've been a fan of Pretty Little Liars for a couple of years now but I gave up at the beginning of season 5. I found the stories recycled and I wasn't caring for the characters anymore. But like with other shows, when I realized they were ending the series and wrapping the story up over the next season, I had an urge to catch up and watch the conclusion. I watched all of season 5 in August while getting ready for Fan Expo and I just started season 6 this week and I have to admit, season 5 gets really good. The story line gets quite dark and I enjoyed the new twists. I'm very interested in seeing how things turn out for the girls of Rosewood.

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…
