Choosing a Paint Colour – The Basics
There’s no one size fits all for paint- so many variables come into play. What are your existing hard and soft furnishings? Do you have warm or cool undertones in your space? How much natural light does the room get? And if you want to get really technical, which DIRECTION does the light come from?

First Trimester Marathon
When I found out I was pregnant it was late March, we had just come back from a quick trip home—Toronto. I was just getting over the lingering effects of covid but the nausea and fatigue (not to mention the cough) was something I just couldn’t shake.
Our Pandemic Renovation Pt 4 –The Highs, Lows and Occasional Deep Breaths
We made it! We moved in, renovations still ongoing, but we once again had a permanent home base. What a whirlwind. All I can say, if I dare to go out on a limb, is that the process of renovating can kind of be compared to pregnancy. Skeptical? Hear me out. There is initial excitement.…

I also want…
Top Picks For Spring
Ok, so the sun is beginning to shine. Sometimes it feels like summer and you’re pulling layers off one by one. Other days, it feel like the sun has played a nasty trick on you when you step outside and feel the cold chill in the air that will rush between your bones for most…
Pregnant in Bed
It was only our fourth day into vacation. I took one sip from my morning cup of coffee and my stomach did a flip and brought it right back up. “I’m pregnant.” I said turning to my husband who was enjoying his own cup of morning joe. “Are you sure? I thought you just took…
Best Friend: “I just feel like I can’t get any bigger…” Me: “You can, and you will. Best Friend: “I’ve been to every Homesense and Marshalls in the city looking for the perfect nursery ottoman, I feel addicted and I don’t even care about decor.” Me: “I know, nesting is a real thing, it takes…
Txt (Me):“I can’t wear one more drab winter outfit or I’m going to lose my mind.” Txt (My girlfriend): “You literally text me this same note every year around this time… None of us want to wear big chunky knit sweaters, black slacks, with salt-stained boots anymore…” Txt (Me): “Why are you calling pants- slacks?…
