What I'm Loving Now

It's the season of s'mores! Bonfires are happening all over my neighbourhood most nights and I can smell them whenever my windows are open. It's one of my favourite smells that brings me back to childhood. And when I smell a bonfire, my mind turns to s'mores.

S'mores Cake

When I saw this amazing cake on Pinterest my jaw dropped. It looks incredible, but the best part? When you check out the ingredients and instructions, it doesn't seem that difficult. I think this cake needs to be baked this Summer!


Maple S'mores

One of my favourite things to do with s'mores is to mix up the ingredients. There's always a toasted marshmallow involved and some sort of chocolate. But I've tried them on different types of cookies and with different flavours of chocolate. Thanks to this Walmart ad that I came across online, I'm now itching to try maple s'mores. I'm not sure why I haven't thought of this before, but it's so happening this Summer.

And to top off my s'mores list: this temporary tattoo is a must-have for me! I need it to wear when we go camping!


Are you a s'mores fan?

  3. That tattoo is adorable! Maybe you and Adam could give each other fake tattoos with felt tip pens before your next camping trip? :) xxx

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…
