I was trolling through Pinterest before Christmas and found these Christmas light balls that looked so amazing. I started looking into how to make them. The ones I originally saw were made with chicken wire, which was fine but I didn’t have any on hand. I did however have plenty of grapevines. We back onto a forest and a number of the trees are crawling with grapevines. Since I know that grapevines can be damaging to the trees I decided to do the city a favour and start pulling off the grapevines to create my own DIY Grapevine Balls.
If you are following me on instagram you might have already known that I broke down and bought my dream coat. I have been looking for a maxi length camel coat and the Mackage Babie coat is IT.
January is all about starting fresh and renewal. It is also a time when we put all the Christmas decorations we have had up for the last month away. If you are anything like me this process makes my house feel a bit empty; like all of a sudden something is missing. This is when I start to really noticing where my home decor is lacking. A new fresh doormat is one of the places that could use a refresh. I have rounded up my 10 must have doormats for some seriously good choice. In fact I might have to update my front and back door!
I wore a version of this outfit before the Christmas Holidays. When I arrived at work my coworker said she really like this combination and that I should definitely put it on the blog. Obviously here we are!
I don’t usually blog about blogging. But since I am coming up on 8 years of blogging I thought it was time to share what I have learned over the years.
I think back on my original website I built back in 2009 and I cringe but it was a stepping stone to where I am now.
I manage everything about my website myself including setting up my hosting and plugins to creating all the content. These are my 10 essentials for blogging in 2017. Continue Reading…
This was the first real weekend after the Christmas Holidays and we spent it coming back to reality. Taking all the Christmas decorations down and putting everything back where it was before the tree was put up. Usually I find it so depressing to take everything down. Like the house isn’t as full but this year it feels refreshing.
I have a few draft posts in the works and I can’t seem to finish as I am distracted. It is that time of year when I work all week and daydream about where we can go once busy season is over. I can’t travel until May due to my day job so I spend January to April refining my 2017 Travel Bucket List. Continue Reading…
Everlane did something this fall that most retailers would never do. Then again Everlane is not most retailers. They dropped the price of their cashmere sweaters from $125 to $100. This is in line with their transparent pricing model because they were able to source their cashmere for less they passed the savings onto their customers as well. I thought this was the best time to snap up and try out one of the Everlane Cashmere Crew sweaters. This is my Everlane Cashmere Review.
One coat style that really stands out as a cool girl style for winter is the faux shearling coat. I found this style from Asos and I think it is more flattering than the oversized biker style made so famous by Acne. The over sized biker style seems to accentuate the hips whereas this is cut in more of an aline and floats away from the body giving a more streamlined look.http://rstyle.me/n/ca6vkmi52w Continue Reading…
Some winter street style looks are so good that they spawn all sorts of copy cats. I found this Vanessa Jackman snap on Pinterest and I felt like I could easily recreate the look with more affordable finds that are in stores right now. Giovanna Battaglia’s style is so winter chic I love it!
