  • GOOD EATS: Girls Who Grill, Easy Grilling Recipes & Tips

    GOOD EATS: Girls Who Grill, Easy Grilling Recipes & Tips

    So full disclosure, I haven’t always loved grilling. I LOVE eating delicious grilled food and a BBQ doesn’t intimate me but I usually try and pass it off to one of the males that I invite over as a guest. I know, I’m horrible but they usually don’t seem to mind. After chatting with some […]

  • Calligraphy Workshop: my new creative obsession

    Calligraphy Workshop: my new creative obsession

    Saying I’m a creative spirit is an understatement. I will try any creative craft I can get my hands on but somehow I’ve gone all time (let’s just say it’s more than 20 years) without trying calligraphy. Until now! It’s something I’ve wanted to try forever but just never made the time for. And if […]

    EVENTS: grown-up halloween party ideas

    I admit that I’ve been a little bit distracted (read: completely consumed) by my kitchen reno and have neglected my fave holiday, halloween. The end is near with the kitchen people, stay tuned. But as far as halloween, which I loooooove, it’s fun to go crazy and if you have kids it’s kinda part of […]

  • SHOP LOCAL: etsy made in Canada Roadtrip

    I’m finally sharing my Etsy: Made in Canada roadtrip with you. Sorry for the slight delay peeps but I was waiting on some photos so I could really show you what a great event it was. It’s been a few years since I’ve done a craft show. It’s kinda like a hangover. You swear you […]

  • DIY: sequin party crowns

    So how much fun is this? I’m in a wedding party (hence why I was just in Mexico…jealous much?) and the other bridesmaids and I hosted a bachlorette/shower combo for the bride a few weeks ago. We were on a bit of a budget so we had to get creative with decor and party favours. I […]

  • {GOOD EATS: supper club}

    Happy Monday y’all. Hope you have some family fun planned for Family Day today. Being single and without children I realized that having Valentine’s Day and Family Day on the same long weekend had potential to be a pretty big bummer of a weekend. Luckily that wasn’t the case for me :) I had the […]
