I’m a HUGE fan of tulle skirts. I’m not going to lie, every time I see one,  I am reminded of my 8 year old, birthday party self. When I found this pretty grey/lavender tulle skirt I loved the colour and layers, but wanted to wear it without looking like an 8 year old ballerina. Cue the leather. Pairing a leather coat and black pumps gave the tulle skirt an edgier look,  while the blush accessories kept it girly and fun.

This outfit is a great edgy + chic option for Valentine’s Day date night out!

For my birthday weekend, hubby and I ventured to Vancouver for a few days of sightseeing, recharging and catching up with good friends. The weekend turned out to be a winter wonderland. We had made a plan to visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge and didn’t let the snowfall stop us from having the most wonderful time.

If you haven’t been to the Capilano Suspension Bridge Park, I highly recommend you visit! The bridge hangs 230 feet above the Capilano River and is nestled into the most beautiful setting of evergreens and rain forest. Next to the bridge is the Cliffwalk which is a suspended walkway jutting out from a granite cliff over the Capilano River. Add pretty snow fall and Christmas twinkle lights and the Capilano suspension park is a magical, must see adventure!

A headboard is one of the quickest ways to make a master bedroom feel complete and, dare I say it, more “adult”. It can also add much needed design elements to your room. But… finding the right headboard to match your combined style can be expensive and not to mention time consuming!  We decided that making our own headboard was a great idea for our master bedroom makeover.  You can easily create a  beautiful, rustic headboard for a fraction of what it would cost to purchase. Bonus, this headboard required minimal power tools so if you’re like me, you can do a lot of the work yourself! Continue reading

“For last year’s words belong to last year’s language and next year’s words await another voice.” – T.S. Elliot

New Year’s Eve is always a time to sit and reflect on the past year – the good, the bad and the madness! It’s a time to be thankful for making it through it all. A time to hold close the ones you love, set goals for the New Year and commit to being open to whatever is coming next.

2016 has been a wonderful year filled with love, learning and travel. Here’s a look back on my year. Continue reading
