What I'm Loving Now

I feel like what I'm loving now are such typical Summer things - iced coffee and blonde hair!

Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

Starbucks released this drink a couple months ago and I'm officially addicted. I've had it regular and blended with ice. It's delicious, smooth, and just the right amount of sweet. It's my new favourite drink for the Summer. I'm now sold on cold brew coffee and I might have to pick up a cold coffee brewer for home. Also, the vanilla sweet cream is delicious. I'll have to find a copycat recipe for it.

Back to Blonde

In the past year I've contemplated on going back to my natural hair colour, blonde, numerous times. And I've finally made my decision and booked my appointment to start the process. It won't be a one-step thing since I've been box dying my hair red for 7 years. I need to get the orange out and allow some of my natural colour to grow in. But after searching online and looking at tons of pictures, I have an idea of what I'd like my end result to be. Natural blonde up top, light blonde on the bottom. Finding these end result pictures has me absolutely itching to get the process going. 

What are you loving now?

  1. Can't wait to see your hair transformation. And that cold coffee sounds amazing! Love me some vanilla in the morning.

  2. HOLY CRAP!! I had NO IDEA that you were a natural blonde!! Literally none. I'm genuinely gobsmacked; the red looks so incredible. How fun that you're going to be joining The Blonde Team again though (says the girl who's a natural brunette... ssh!) xxx

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…
