    The Perfect Bar Cart

    Bar Cart Styling and Bar Cart Essentials for Your Next Cocktail Night When I first started re-organizing my living room, I came to the conclusion that I had just enough room to put a bar cart in my dining area. Considering 2020 had me doing most of my entertaining from home, it seemed like a necessary progression. To be completely transparent, I am in no way an expert at crafting cocktails so this is my beginners guide to stocking your at home bar, while also making it look aesthtically pleasing. As a newbie to the cocktail world, I did extensive research on all the bar cart essentials. My starting off…

    How to Build a Skincare Routine

    Beyond cleanser, toner, and moisturizer, what other active ingredients do you need for your skin? A Complete Guide on How to build a day and nighttime skincare regime. My skincare routine consists of buying whatever fad products are in the market and then waiting for them to die out. JLo has me fully convinced there is a fountain of youth and I know it is not filled with olive oil. My approach has been mostly trial and error, but I do get quite a few questions on my Instagram about my skincare routine and I have really been limping through it. I took it upon myself to scour the internet…

    My Boho Inspired Master Bedroom

    My favourite neutrals, budget-friendly tips, and all the things that make my bedroom cosy. When I first moved into my place it was the opposite of relaxing, there were so many different paint colours and window treatments, it wasn’t speaking to my aesthetic. Over the years, I have been slowly chipping away at making upgrades. Switching out my queen for a king was a pretty bold move for my small space. It also meant finding bedside tables that would allow the switch. To accommodate my growing wardrobe, I had to add in a PAX wardrobe. A drastic closet edit is probably needed, since I have way too many clothes and…

    10 Things I Learned About Myself in 2020

    I spent a lot of time alone in 2020 and I learnt a lot about me! Understanding my behaviours, skills and values help me improve my bad habits and understand my triggers. I have also applauded myself for being very self-aware and coachable. Although I don’t like change, I am open to it. I am constantly searching for ways to improve my connections, improve my skillset, or work on myself. I have done quite a few annual wrap-ups over the years, but I’m sure it is fairly boring for me to expect complete strangers to be inspired by my goals, so this year, I decide to share all the personal…

    How to Host a Raclette Dinner Party

    Everything you need to know to set up a raclette and host a dinner party One of the nice things to come out of quarantine is my desire to host. When most of the restaurants were closed in the summer, hosting at home was really the only option, with my bubble obviously. Since this New Years’ Eve, we were under strict restrictions to continue to stay home and only socialize with our bubbles, it seemed like a perfect opportunity to finally invest in getting a raclette. I have never been crazy about fondue, so raclette seemed like a good option. It is really the perfect no fuss dinner party idea…

    One-Step Hair Dryer – Revlon Vs Hot Tools

    I reviewed styling brushes so you don’t have to! I was recently in Whistler with my girlfriends and they were hyping the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Hot Air Brush. I couldn’t believe that they all had this brush and I had never even heard of it. The product is supposed to help you create a salon-style blowout at home. Since I only wash my hair every couple of days, getting long-lasting results from my blow out is something that makes my life a lot easier. Hot Tools Professional One-Step Blowout Styler I immediately went to London Drugs to get the brush but unfortunately, they only had a Hot…

Halloween seemed like a wash, then I blinked and it was Remembrance Day, followed by everyone on my social media putting up their Christmas decorations already. Perhaps we are all needing a little bit of cheer in our lives, so starting to dream about the holidays, is a nice break. I put together a few gift ideas for all the loved ones in my life. Gifts for Mom My parents have everything, making it almost impossible to buy for them. I usually try to think of sentimental gifts or things that they would not normally purchase for themselves.…

    Vancouver to the Canadian Rockies

    Driving Route and Trip Planner for the Canadian Rockies Like most people I had big plans for 2020, I had put on my vision board that I was going to go to at least one new country. I was carefully plotting out my vacation days so I could fit in all the travel I had planned. However, like most people my travel plans were cancelled and instead of a beach vacation, the next best thing was a road-trip through the Rockies. Flying still doesn’t feel like a viable option in times like these. Drive Path Our trip was 9 days in total but it could of been shortened. To break…

    This is 32

    No one has been waiting for it but I am writing it anyways. One year after my break up, surviving COVID times and new beginnings. I did a round up post when I was about to turn thirty, which I just re-read and surprisingly I stand by my advice. I know it is only two years ago, but I really thought it would be cringeworthy. The only thing I would change is aesthetic, my photo skills/retrieving stock photo has improved. Black Lives Matter Around the time of my birthday the black lives matters movement broke out. I felt like it was an inappropriate time to push any of my own…
