People said my baby would change my world and she really has. I’m so in love with her I can’t even believe how much 💗 she sleeps like an angel (during the day 😅) and laughs in her sleep as if shes having the sweetest dreams. Her smiles make me want to cry sometimes, they’re so adorable. I wore these pajamas at the hospital and one of the nurses told me I looked like I just gave birth to a princess, and you know, I think I did 😇😇
Not gonna lie, it took us a while to get her used to sleeping in her @halosleep glider, but so glad she loves it now. This bassinet crib hybrid goes over the bed and the bassinet portion can be pulled onto the bed by sliding it over, so convenient when waking up, half asleep 😅
This is what we’re using right now while at my parents house, and although you cant travel with this, I think its a good thing to have at a place you travel to often, to have your baby sleep in while your there. Or even if you have a crib, but just want your baby next to you in your room instesd of the nursery, this is a good choice. It is quite bulky, but I dont mind that too much since it can be pushed into the bed during the day, and it also means the bassinet is bigger and will last your baby longer ☺️

My daughter’s birthday celebration, on a dime.This entire setup was handmade and cost me about $30. I enjoy DIY-ing when it’s my kids’ birthdays. I want them to know that they can have a beautiful celebration by making things with their hands and keeping the costs low.🎂🍬 .
I can’t take full credit of this setup though. My mom made all of the flowers on the wall(from coloured tissue paper)and the big flower on the table. I made small flowers for the letter Z and the “loot candies”(I knew I was going to put all those paper towel rolls to good use one day)🧻🌸 .
We got all of our supplies from Dollarama. Kids had fun opening paper towel candy bars and grownups used the backdrop as a perfect opportunity for taking family pictures! 📸 .
The birthday is over now, and I’m sitting in a big pile of flowers. What should I do with all of them?😃

I’ve been itching to color my hair for the longest time however I never had the guts to do so.
This product from @moroccanoil caught my attention as it is supposed to moisturize the hair and also leave color behind.
I purchased the travel size from #Sephora , ran me about $10 CAD. It was pretty easy to apply, smelled good and most importantly didn’t make my hair feel dry. I started the application with the gloves but I felt more at ease with my bare hands (it didn’t stain). Detangling under the shower was fine, after rinsing my hair out I used the @officialkinkycurly knot today leave in and curling custard to style my hair in a wash and go.
Fast forward to the next day, 100% dry, my hair had a slight tint of red if you looked VERY closely. It didn’t feel dry compared to when I would use a spray or wax temporary color.
Final thoughts: It was fun experience, you will probably have better luck with the color showing if you hair has been previously bleached or have lighter hair.

the butterfly 🦋• she is with us during transition. And since transition is accompanied by discomfort, patience and kindness is necessary.
She is cheerful and graceful but can be fragile and frustrated. Relying on friends for support and committing to a daily routine can lift the butterfly’s spirits.
Sometimes the best spots for photos happen by just walking around. Anyone else seen this colourful school bus before?

Storage idea: how to store your laminated games. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Easy answer: plastic document sleeves in a binder! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m loving this set up for a few reasons: the sleeves keep all the small pieces inside, the sleeves are easy to remove and take upstairs and the binder means nothing gets bent! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Other items you could store in it: small puzzles, flash cards, playing cards and small board games!

Try it out the next time you are at Taj! You won’t regret it 😀 #TajOttawa#aloosaag
Life has been so busy these past few months— so much so I forgot to post an entire vacation this past fall 🙄My bad. My love affair with New York began when I was 16 years old, watching the old TV show Fashion File staring Jeanne Beker.
The seedy history, the fashion, the culture and the Art scene all intrigued me.
My teen dream was to live in a NYC loft as a starving artist—there is a joke in there—selling my work, hanging out in Washington Square Park, living the Bohemian lifestyle.
Well, I may not have taken that route in life, but I still love hanging out with people in the Arts IN Washington Square Park 💕 #newyorker

I’ve always loved going to pumpkin patches and doing all the fun autumn activities. Apple picking, pumpkin patches, farmers markets, you name it and I’ll be there! I’m glad that every year no matter what life throws at me, I always make time for the little things that make me happy ever since I was a kid.
This week’s #TuesdayThoughts is all about remembering the little things in life because at the end of the day we won’t remember that midterm we spent hours studying for but instead will remember that time that you tried climbing up a 1000 pound pumpkin and completely fall over when you lost your balance ( which is exactly what happened after these photos were taken😂😅) What’s a tradition that you love doing every year?!✨

CHRISTMAS CREDENZA REVEAL!!
While Andrew had a few choice words for my ball garland 😂 I am so thrilled that you guys encouraged me to keep it when I posted about it in stories 💃! It is just the bit of whimsy required to play nice with our mishmash tree. ALL the balls needed were some books, retro Santa, tipsy lumberjack and a greeting card in a pear tree 🎶 (okay the greeting card is framed because it’s the cheapest Christmas decor swap ever).
Next up on my Christmas decor list is to replace hang out giant glitter covered snowflake ❄️ garland. Where are YOU most excited to decorate? In your home?

You deserve to feel and look beautiful 👑
I always enjoy treating myself and today I’m going to share with you guys my wonderful experience at @thetenspot
I had two beauty services at the Westboro location (it’s so amazing that they have several locations in Ottawa):
Defined brows instantly make you look more polished - yes yes yes 🤩
I think Melissa did a great job 👌🏻
Your hands never take day off; therefore, it’s so important to take care of them.
I have chosen such a pretty colour - bubble bath 💖
Thank you so much @x.westborokanata for an amazing and relaxing day. I can’t wait to go back 💋💋
