    Shop the Sweet Escape Muskoka: Wall Art

    By far my favourite part of having a cottage is the fresh blank canvas to decorate. Let’s be honest, that’s what got me through all the hard work of fixing it up. This girl just wants to decorate, you know what what I mean? Being that it is a seasonal cottage and a short term […]

    Sweet Escape Muskoka: Cottage Kitchen reveal

    Wowza! where did the time go? It feels both like ages ago and just yesterday that I shared my cottage kitchen makeover plan with you. Here’s the deal, things don’t always go as planned especially with a reno. I think we all know that. For me being a cottage owner newbie I didn’t quite know […]

    Sweet Escape Muskoka: Cottage Kitchen Makeover Plan

    It wasn’t until I sat down to write this post that I realized that I skipped a few updates. I may have forgotten to mention that in the middle of updating a vintage Airstream this Spring/Summer I was also shopping around for a cottage to call my own. It’s something I’ve wanted to explore for […]

    This post sure is a long time coming but it’s worth it! It was wayyyyyyyyy back in April that Emily and I officially started the wheels in motion (pun intended) on this Airstream makeover and the ol’ Cheerstream’s time in the beauty chair is finally up and she’s ready for her big reveal. Just in […]

    Cheerstream makeover: design plan

    Giving a 1980 vintage Airstream a makeover, one cheer at a time. I’m not a huge bucket list type person, I rather go with the flow and see what comes my way, but there are a few things that live somewhere at the back of my mind that keep popping up. One of those things […]

    Sweet Escape: Two weeks in Morocco

    Kinda looks like this is slowly turning into a travel blog huh? Really though, I love making these posts for myself more than anything. It’s my digital travel scrapbook that allows me to go down memory lane later on and remember all the amazing places I’ve been and the details that would easily get forgotten […]

  • Sweet Escape: New Mexico Balloon Fiesta

    Sweet Escape: New Mexico Balloon Fiesta

    Thanksgiving was a little different around here this year. While most people were perfecting their pumpkin pie making skills and digging out their stretchy pants from the bottom of their closet, I decided to jump on a plane and head to New Mexico. Obviously. Ok, maybe not so obvious. Timing was a bit unfortunate in […]

    Fall Colour Cookies

    Ok, so I may be a bit late for Canadian Thanksgiving but there’s still plenty of time for my friends south of the border to whip up some beautiful sweets for your Thanksgiving celebration. Sometimes you get inspired to bake and you just go with it. Autumn is absolutely my favourite season and I just […]

  • Loft Living 10 Year Anniversary

    Loft Living 10 Year Anniversary

    I realized over the weekend that as of today, October 16, it will have been 10 years (!!!) since I got the keys to my loft. I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around that. It feels like I moved in here maybe 5-6 years ago. This wasn’t really planned but I thought the […]

    Sweet Escape: California Road Trip Part 2

    So last time I checked in here I was telling you all about our amazing California road trip. It was so awesome, in fact, that it needed two whole posts. As promised, here I am with part 2. For those sitting at the edge of your seat on public transit (or in a public washroom) […]

    Watermelon Margarita Cocktail Recipe

    I thought I would squeeze in one more summer cocktail recipe just before the last long weekend of the year…aka the sign for the end of summer. Well that’s what everyone seems to believe anyway. I get it….end of August, school starts, I see how it can feel like the end of summer. The reality […]

    Sweet Escape: California Road Trip Part 1

    previous postFor real though, it took an amazing and epic California road trip to get me back to blogging. Not because I didn’t have good intentions but getting a full-time gig (see my previous post) where I helped to create content every day kinda took all the juice out of me. But leave it up […]

    That Awkward 9 month Update – Life of a TV Set Stylist

    Soooooo it’s been about 9 months since my last post. Oops! And no, I’m not creating a little human. I thought I needed a short update post on what’s been happening before jumping into what’s new and exciting. Here’s the deal – I unexpectedly ended up getting a job working in TV. I know, don’t […]
