My ideal outfit? Leggings, a dress, and boots. Maybe a cardigan if necessary. My goal in life right now is to work somewhere that I can wear my favourite outfit combo daily. 

This photo was taken at Gateway FanEx last month.

For my birthday this past summer I was given a pair of leggings from Sweetlegs; one size fits all in a cat print. I loved the print but was nervous about the sizing because I rarely fit into the one size fits all items. Well these leggings are amazing - super stretchy, super long, and ridiculously soft! The sizing is perfect, though, if you're shorter, you have to pull the extra length up to hide around the tops of your legs. But that's ok! It's better than too short!

After falling in love with my cat leggings, I headed to the site to pick up two more pairs. Both of them fit exactly like the cat ones and I'm seriously obsessed. Now when I wear my other brands of leggings, they don't compare. Other leggings sag after one wear (I usually wear leggings 2-3 times before I wash them), slide down my hips and require me to pull them up every once in a while, or I can see the slight wear and thinning that make the leggings somewhat see-through.

But not my leggings from Sweetlegs!

These have become my most worn pair of leggings since they're pretty neutral. I've been pairing them with most of my dresses.

I'm excited to own some holiday-inspired leggings. They're great to pair with an over-sized sweater and tall socks.

I currently have my eye on a few of their new holiday print leggings and I'm wanting to grab a couple of their plain coloured ones too. And the best part? They're a Canadian company so I can feel even better about supporting them.

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…
