Design Inspiration Brass Details

I’ve started to daydream about home design, and have been pinning and browsing tons of home inspo… I can’t wait to design our next home! I’ve really been into hints of brass lately. Brass detailing on a chair, in the kitchen, on handles, hooks, or plant holders. Just a little touch of brass adds a bit of warmth, a bit of nostalgia, and a bit of class to a place.

A brass detail completes the look, like a piece of jewelry can do for an outfit. Check out my favourite brass detail inspiration. View Post

The Art of Persuasion #StreamTeam

When you find a new show that you absolutely want to watch on Netflix, that last thing you want to do is watch it alone – amiright?! However, not everyone in my household is interested in the same amazing shows I am (like Downton Abbey, The Crown, Chef’s Table, or Chelsea) – well, they’re not interested in them at first!

The perfect couch partner is just one persuasive conversation away from joining me in watching a new show – and I’ve heard ALL the excuses: It looks boring. I don’t like history. I don’t know who this is. I don’t like to watch food, it makes me hungry. But despite the excuses they might bring to the table, no one can beat me when it come to the power of persuasion (and good tv!). View Post

Back to School with Sharpie & Papermate Inkjoy #SpreadLove

With back to school just around the corner, our home is full of the business of ‘getting ready’ for back to school! Supply lists abound, clothes shopping and new shoes are on the agenda, and life is finally getting back to normal around here – thank goodness!

My favourite part of going back to school is getting our lives back on track. Don’t get me wrong, summer is absolutely amazing and spending extra time with the family is always a good thing. But there’s something about having a routine that can’t be beat – and I love organizing our schedules and setting that routine up! View Post

The Best Postpartum Abs Workout: A full review of Abs, Core & Pelvic Floor 30-Day Program by Natalie Hudson

Motherhood can make you feel stronger than you’ve ever felt before.

It’s true! Not only have you grown a little human being inside of you, you then gave birth, you’ve raised this little being with your whole heart, body and mind – and it takes strength to do so!

Yet no matter how strong we may feel, sometimes our physical strength just doesn’t match up. At least, that’s how I feel when it comes to my abdomen muscles and pelvic floor. View Post

How to Go Vegan As a Family | Want to become a vegan with kids? It's easier than you think! Here are step by step ways to become vegan with your family.

Becoming a vegan is not as hard as you think it might be, but going vegan as a family can be a bit tricky! I’ve quickly discovered that going vegan is easy when you make an abundance of delicious vegan meals – crowding out whatever meat and dairy may have been in your diet before with an abundance of veggies, whole grains, and plant-based proteins.

Yes, going vegan can be easy. But throw in an 11 year old that won’t eat onions or peppers, and a 5 year old whose dream diet consists of pizza and cheeseburgers, and suddenly going vegan as a family becomes a little more difficult. Here are some tips and tricks I’ve learned this past week on how to go vegan as a family without losing your mind!
