Christmas Pajamas Gift Guide

I think you might be surprised to learn that we probably have the same Christmas Eve tradition. Each year my parents bought us kids (there were four of us!) new Christmas pajamas that we were allowed to open on Christmas Eve. I carried that tradition on when we had our own kids and I remember telling someone at work this story, thinking I was the only one. Well, a few people overheard the conversation an they chimed in that they did that too...and they also thought they were the only family that did this!

Navy Stripe Powder Room

Earlier this year I had decided that the main floor of our house needed to be redecorated. We made a plan and committed to three main areas, our kitchen, living/dining room and main entry hallway. Each presented challenges, like the arduous task of removing popcorn ceilings (more on that in a future post), and like many projects, it seemed to drag on and on.

After last night's snowfall and this morning's below freezing temperature, I thought today would be the perfect time to talk about brewing the perfect cup of tea. Yes, there is a true art to making a soul stasfiying cuppa that will leave a smile on your face.

This Life: Episode 1

celebrating this life

It's the start of a new month, a very busy month that leads into an even busier month, which is why I took a much needed few days off from blogging last week so I could prepare myself for everything that is coming up. In doing this I thought of a new column where I could keep you all up date on everything going on in This Life!

Not So Scary Candy Apples

My dear friend Kendra, of Kendra Bester Design, and I share a love of being in the kitchen. We try to coordinate a day every few months where we can whip up a few treats (remember our lemon drop party?). It's always fun to come with ideas and then spend the day creating in the kitchen while catching up on what's going on in our lives.

Trend To Try for fall Leopard


Leopard is a perennial fall favourite. From large patterned outerwear to small touches in your accessories. Leopard is everywhere right now so let's see how we can incorporate this classic print into our everyday wardrobes!

After an unusual start to fall it looks like it's finally here! The nights are cool, there's frost in the mornings and the leaves are all starting to change. Of course there is a slight downside to all of this, we have to put our vintage car into storage very soon. We are making the most of it and last weekend we drove out to Oxford county and did a little leaf peeping.
