Hello lovelies!
I love Valentines’ Day because all the stores come out with the cutest themed clothing and accessories!
I am not really a red person myself, I do appreciate it but with my colouring it just really doesn’t flatter me that well. I tend to gear more towards maroon as far as the red family is concerned. Anyway point being; pale pink is usually my choice pick for Valentines Day.
So here are the 14 things that have inspired me this Valentines Day.
Hearts, blushes, pale pinks, chokers, lace, ruffles.

Every Valentines’ Day we go to my parents for dinner and chocolate fondue curtesy of my Father 🙂
What are you all doing for Valentines Day?
Let me know in the comments below!

Hey everyone!
I hope you all have enjoyed yourselves this holiday season! It has been forever since I have posted but I really wanted to give you guys a peak of the house and show you a little about how I decorate for the Christmas season. 🙂
Ever since I was little my favourite part about Christmas was helping my Mother decorate the house and the tree. I like to keep things classic and subtle with greenery and silver accents.

All the garlands I picked up at either Michaels or Canadian Tire. The tree skirt, most of my basic silver ball ornaments, black lantern, and pine cone ornaments are from Canadian Tire.
The silver reindeer, the candle sticks, and the white table runner for the piano are from Winners.
The reindeer wreath holder, the small green tree and the pine cone lights are from Superstore.
The outside wreath, the small mercury glass candle holders, and the small white tree on my piano are from Homesense.
The wreath hanging from the reindeer holder is from Michaels.

So I hope you guys like this! I’m sorry I haven’t posted in forever. Between working on the house, getting ready for the Holidays, and Cam I find I rarely have time to work on the blog, but I am still going to try and post as often as I can 🙂

I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year!

Hey loves!
I loveeeee high boots. I got these on sale from Nordstrom a year or so ago and I have been in obsessed ever since. I linked them in case you want to try to hunt them down, but I looked and everywhere seems to be sold out of them. Butttt I did link a very similar more affordable pair from Spring. 🙂
I love adding a floppy hat to any outfit. I feel like it just adds instant fabulous and it’s super cute for Fall. I saw this hat from Joe Fresh when I was supposed to be grocery shopping the other day,…
1z
I just feel in love with the colour but it’s $29!
I love olive green and because I have hazel eyes it really brings out the green in them but I just feel like that’s too expensive 😦
What do you guys think?
Should I splurge on it?
I feel like I just can’t justify it, maybe if I got grey I would feel better about it? Ahhh I don’t know. Let me know what you guys think!

As always thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope everyone has a good Monday!

Happy Wednesday everyone!
I know it has been foreverrrr since I have posted but I have really just been putting all my time into the new house. But, I am telling myself that I need to make time for the blog because I really enjoy blogging and I miss you guys!

So I thought this would be a good post to do because I am literally wearing so many what I would call “staples”
Jeans, leather jacket, Runners, basic hoodie
My style is very,…. basic, am I a basic bitch? hahahaha
No I just really enjoy classic good quality versatile pieces; that I know I can use and incorporate throughout my wardrobe. I don’t like buying things thinking I will only wear it once.

So I hope you guys like this!
I couldn’t find the link for the exact hoodie I am wearing but I found a similar one that is also from Forever21 🙂

Thanks for stopping by !

Hey guys!

I cannot believe how long it’s been since I have done a blog post! I just feel like every spare second I have I have either been packing, un-packing, or cleaning!
We have officially moved into our new home though and things are starting to wind down a little 🙂
I am going to try and start posting regularly again but thank you so much for your support and understanding! xo
I love plaid flannels for the Fall! They are so cozy and super easy to add as a layer under a leather jacket. This one is older but I love the colours in it for Fall. I linked a couple others that I love so check them out if you’re interested!
Being a first-time home buyer, I am feeling a little overwhelmed with all the things that go along with having a house. Keeping things tidy, getting dinner on the table, looking after Cam and trying to remember to look after myself too ( I’m constantly forgetting to eat because I’m thinking about Cam ) I gets to be a lot and I’m trying to tell myself that the dishes can wait but I’m finding it a little hard.
Normal I’m sure, yes?
Anyway I am happy and I feel super lucky to have such a lovely little home for my little family.
So I hope you guys liked this, A little outfit and life update, let me know if you have any tips on how to be a super mom! haha
Thanks for stopping by,
