Well I understand it’s the last hot day here and tomorrow we will have rain and the cooler weather. I’m sure the garden will welcome both but I’m not so sure! The weather and the garden have become my new obsessions during this long time at home 🙈😂
Say hello to my new plant! 👋🏻 He’s feeling kind of nervous as his predecessors both snuffed it at my less than green-fingered hands 😬 Why can I be a good gardener (if I do say so myself 😂) and such a terrible house plant owner? 😂😂
TA- DA! Presenting my newly re-vamped sanctuary! (Swipe to see what it looked like when we viewed the house). Yesterday was master bedroom finale. Everything just came together and Mr R is buzzing as we are now down to less pillows on the bed 🙈 It’s a super king bed and I always wondered why I was struggling to get the pillows to fit, so bought more, we then had three each which even I began to think was a tad too many 🤦🏻♀️, so it’s now two for Joy and they fit beautifully. I bought this gorgeous olive green linen bedding from @secretlinenstore as I wanted a shade of my wall colour which is @farrowandball green smoke and it’s now finished the room off perfectly. It’s calming, inviting and until I finish another room I’m staying right here, amongst the mountains, forests (and if I leave the window open on a night) it’s fresh air.
Spot the two different lamps! Do you think I should by another of one of them to match or stay quirky and unique?
Have a fabulous Tuesday. X
2 years. 2 years today of chasing this dream full-time. 🎉 It seems to have zoomed by so quickly. It’s so crazy to me how unexpectedly life changes. I’m so thankful to be where I am today, getting to do what I love every single day. What are some of your crazy dreams? I think one of my favorite parts of entrepreneurship is getting to connect with other dreamers and hear their stories and ideas. I thrive off of that energy. Dreaming looks different for everyone though. For some of us it’s a million business ideas (ahem, that’s me), for some of us it’s starting a family or having a garden or going to college. I think dreaming is so healthy for us - no matter the scale.
So with that being said, do you feel up to sharing your dream and writing it down for people to see? ✨ I would LOVE to hear them. I’ll go first with 3 of my biggest, boldest dreams right now.⠀
1. Move Doe A Deer to a warehouse location with a storefront in the next year ⠀
2. Own a coffee shop and/or a brewery someday ⠀
3. Be apart of a retail revitalization movement in my small town
I’m seeing lots of green outside these days and I couldn’t be happier. I love this time of the year when the sun hasn’t baked my grass to brown. 🤨
This piece is shipping out tomorrow. Check out that link in my bio to see what is left.
Also, side note: I went to Homesense the other day. It was fantastic despite the line up. Anybody else been yet?

𝕎𝕖𝕒𝕣 𝔸 ℂ𝕣𝕠𝕨𝕟 𝔸𝕟𝕕 𝔹𝕖 𝕊𝕨𝕖𝕖𝕥 𝕆𝕟 𝕋𝕙𝕖 𝕀𝕟𝕤𝕚𝕕𝕖...!!! Summer begins this month and it excite’s me, seeing the sun shining through the window each morning and blue skies gives me a spring in my step. Not just that, I finally have chance to wear my Summer clothes.
Anyway, I thought a close up of these beautiful flowers was appropriate. I can’t wait to buy some more very soon.
June is one of my favourite months, although, with these uncertain times things may be slightly different during these Summer Months. I’m looking forward to BBQs, and lovely strolls late evening in the sun... as well as enjoying spending quality time together. It is my birthday this month,but we’ve just got to make the best of what we’ve got in this awful situation. Besides, I’m getting older, so as long as I’ve a chocolate cake that’s my day made up. Everything else I’ve got right here, so feel all my birthdays have come at once 🥰
What are you looking forward to during Summer? ☀️ I’ve spent the afternoon reading outside in the sunshine, I had no idea of the time with been so engrossed until I heard the villiage clock strike five times! Whoops time seems to fly when reading. Currently reading a Nicholas Sparks book. I enjoy reading it takes you to some place else for the moment.
Do you have a favourite book or author? .

Whenever I used to feel sad growing up, I’d turn to art to take me to a place I can’t even describe. With the recent issues, feelings of sadness are coming up for me with regards to my own experiences growing up in the United States as an American Canadian Indian Woman. Wait, did you think I wasn’t made fun of for being Canadian? 😆
Slurs like “Gandhi dot” were said to me starting in elementary school. The funny thing is that I never wore a bindi to school & I barely knew who Ghandi was.
At home, I became “not Indian enough”. And yes, my parents have always been attacked for not following cultural norms as well. I come from a family of liberals who are barely hanging on to Indian culture bc of the bullying they have faced by their own peers.
We had family in for the past week and they left today so the house feels empty and sad. But I am so thankful for all of the fun memories we got to make together and the time spent! I feel so lucky to have people in my life that I miss so much! Ps... this table doesn’t look like this right now. It’s messy from all of us. 💕
I’m officially calling the laundry room done! I hung the final shelf today (see the process in stories) and I got it all styled and ready to go. On a scale of 1-10, how sad is it that I switched to laundry pods solely because they look cuter sitting on my counter? 😂🤦🏼♀️ I’ll have a full blog post for you next week with a breakdown of everything we did in here but for now let’s just enjoy the view, shall we?
If you’re looking for some other fun accounts to follow this week, I was asked to be featured on the #mymodernlook ladies’ feeds this week!
