What I Loved In August

The sun is shining brightly through the windows, even as it nears setting.  September first arrived and the temperature dipped noticeably.  We were up at the house in Cultus Lake this weekend.  Every year my fiancee’s family spends a week at the “cabin”, a palatial home built with the true feeling of the Pacific Northwest…

What I’m Loving – June/July Edition

I cannot believe it’s already mid July. Where has time gone to?  Before we know it, Autumn will arrive and then Winter.  Our wedding is in 145 days!. OMG.   Ok, slow down. It’s still only July and as much as I wanted to do a favourites blog for June there was just too much going…

May Favourites – Waterfalls, Secret Suppers and Hocus Pocus.

I know, I know. It’s a week in to June and I’m just getting around to writing this. In my defence; I’m planning my wedding, a trip to Italy this month, working and keeping up with everyday life.  You know how it is.  Excuses aside.  Here are the things I loved and am loving from…

Movies That Get Me In The Mood For Summer

Every year around February and after our long dreary winter’s on the coast. Winters that can bring up to 60 days of consecutive rain. There’s a week of sunshine. A week where I step outside in the morning and see purple crocuses sprouting and the earth smells warm and sweet and it hits me:  It’s…

April Favourites- New Hood, White Teeth and Flying Pigs(?)

May ushered in with a small heat wave on the coast.  I set up my own private beach on our patio and got a good 2 days of sunbathing in which was delightful.  Books, music, a cold drink with a view of the yachts in False Creek and the coastal mountains that remain snow capped…

This is my first Spring closet blog, how exciting! I’ve been waiting anxiously to share this one. 1. Because I bought…

Beauty Products I’m Loving

Today I wanted to share some of the products I’ve been obsessing over.  When Spring arrives everything feels fresh and new and bright and alive.  After the long, cold months of Autumn and Winter I like to move away from the darker make up colours, the matt skin and the spicy earthy scents I gravitate…

Unboxing the FabFitFun Spring 2018 Box

Two Christmases ago my fiancee bought me a subscription to the FabFitFun Box, a quarterly treasure chest of cosmetics, home ware, health and fashion products. For $200 a year I get 4 boxes (valued at over $200 each), one in Winter, another in Spring, Summer and Fall.  I get to try full sized products (never…

Scrapbooks, Collages and Dreams, Oh My.

#TBT alert!  Before Pinterest or Instagram I had my printer, scissors and tape.  I like to keep blank journals and love receiving them as gifts.  See, I write A LOT.  I journal, write lists, take notes when I’m studying, write letters.  Today we were at the grocery store and my Fiancee looked and me and…
