Holiday Home Tour

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Welcome here everyone!  As I mentioned in a previous post, Christmas is my favourite time of the year, and one of the things I enjoy the most about this season is being able to create an inviting space for family and friends.

I know there are people in my life who think I go overboard with the Christmas decor, but this is just one of those creative outlets that I let myself enjoy.

This year, I was really inspired by the minimalist/Scandinavian trend – which, for me, means lots of greenery, monochromatic decor, simple details, and cohesion.  On that note, I hope you all enjoy this little Holiday Home Tour!  I’m really happy with how everything has turned out… so far 😉

So – why did I hesitate before hitting “publish”?

Fall Capsule Wardrobe: Part 1

Fall Capsule Wardrobe: Part 1

They say the first step to fixing a problem is admitting that there is one.

The truth is – I have a problem.  I like to shop, and I have a weakness for clothes specifically.  For myself, for the kids – oh it’s so easy to justify when it’s for the kids! However, despite the frequent purchases, I often find myself staring into my cluttered closet – or my kids closets, for that matter – and thinking “there’s nothing to wear”.

Not sure if any of you can relate to this feeling, but I hear it’s pretty common.
