10 things you might not know about me


Happy Tuesday everyone! Technically it's my Monday (thank goodness for long weekends). I hope all my fellow Canadians had a great family day. We definitely had an unexpected weekend. Morgan and I officially adopted a beautiful dog named Popeye. I'm so excited to introduce him to you guys! You can meet him on my blog later this week. I got to thinking last week and realised I've never really shared that much about me on my blog. So today I wanted to share with you 10 things you might not know about me.

How to become a morning person


Anyone who knows me knows I'm no night owl, I can barely stay awake to watch a movie on a Friday night, just ask my husband. Getting in a workout and getting a head start on work before most people have started their day always makes me feel so productive. But how do you enjoy being a morning person when most of the time all we want to do is hit snooze over and over, skip the gym and barely have the time to eat a nutritious breakfast.

DIY affordable spring wreath


My first home DIY post seemed to go down pretty well, if you haven't seen it you can read it here. I wanted to come up with a quick and simple home decor DIY that anyone can make. Wreaths are a fantastic way to keep your home decor up to date with the seasons, whether it's Christmas, Spring, Halloween or Winter you can customize a wreath for every season.
This Spring wreath I made was very inexpensive and so incredibly easy to make.

Drugstore products your make-up bag needs


It feels like the longest time since I have written a beauty post about make-up! Finding holy grails at the drugstore involves taking a risk, but it feels like a serious accomplishment when you find a great product!

5 affordable things to do this Valentine's day


If you're the Valentines Grinch you should probably stop reading at this point. With Valentines day fast approaching I wanted to share some affordable yet romantic things to do to celebrate. Morgan and I both love to spend Valentines day doing something small, I've never been a huge fan of the typical 'dinner at a swanky restaurant, lavish me with expensive jewelry, teddy bears and flowers' kinda gal. I'd choose a cozy night in, eating delicious food and wine any day.

So if you're looking for a little inspiration for something small yet romantic to do this Valentines day, keep reading...

Breakfast (and the whole day) in bed
Let me tell you.. if Morgan had the day off this Valentines day, we'd be doing this. Try cooking a delicious and romantic themed breakfast (champagne optional) and binge watching your favorite TV show or every rom-com on Netflix.

Go for a walk and talk
Honestly sometimes there is nothing more romantic than a walk or even a late night drive. Every time Morgan and I spend time going for a walk we have some of the best conversations and really gives a chance to talk freely. For you men out there..bonus points for packing a romantic picnic and maybe some roses.. girls love that s**t.

Bring the movies home
I live for movie nights at home! They're so much cheaper (hello.. when did a movie date start costing $50?!) and you can wear sweatpants. Try building a cozy fort together, rent the latest movie and stock up on the best movie snacks (no sneaking snacks in required).

Play a couples game
No I'm not talking sexual games (lets keep this PG). Morgan and I recently had an at home date night where we played this game. It was refreshing to turn off the TV and reflect on romantic memories. If you're not married you could totally customize the questions!

Cook dinner together
This can be way more intimate than going out for dinner, try cooking something fun like sushi or pizza. Add some wine into the mix and you've got the perfect night in.

How will you be spending Valentines day?

7 things I'll be spending more time on in 2017


I've always loved making goals.

In my opinion it's never too late to make some resolutions. I personally love resolutions, they make us aware of the fact that we want to make changes. One thing I love to do is write down my goals, writing your goals down and looking at them everyday is a fabulous reminder to work towards those goals everyday, whatever they may be.
