Stationery Favourites

Back to School is everywhere right now. My work is filled with backpacks and lunch bags, the grocery store has bins of pens, glue sticks, and notebooks, and Walmart's seasonal section is filled with all school necessities. This was one of my favourite things about going back to school; buying new pens and pencils, filling up my new pencil case, and picking out the perfect notebooks, binders, and file folders. To this day I'm jealous of all the kids going back to school and starting a fresh school year. 

Luckily working for IGGPPC, running my own Etsy shop, and having a love for to-do lists and snail mail, I use stationery pretty regularly. As I've been eyeing up all the new products showing up in store and in my email inbox, these top my list of what I'd love to buy for September.

4. Shining Neko Stickers
5. 2017 Planner
6. Booklight

The lap desk and booklight would be amazing things to have at home right now and I may just have to buy them to make some daily tasks even easier.

Do you enjoy school supply shopping? Do you have an addiction to stationery like me?

  1. I love this time of year! I'm kind of a notebook/agenda hoarder, haha. Lately I've been especially obsessed with Kate Spade office supplies, especially the heavy duty agenda I bought. It runs August 2016-December 2017 and all summer I was just counting down the days until August 1st so I could use it, lol!

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…
