Christmas gifts for Teen Girls

I have two teen girls on my Christmas list. My nieces are in their late teens and I can usually get by with a Sephora gift card but there have been years when I have gotten fun pool floats or added to a gift card with a colourful scarf. Teens can be hard to shop for if you don’t have one in your house or if you are…


Cute Kids Christmas Sweaters

November 14, 2017

I have some special guest stars on the blog today. My kids are modelling some cute kids Christmas sweaters. While I personally would put myself and my Husband in something red or green, I go a bit more full on festive with my kids. How can I not they are too cute! My son gets off a bit easy in that he can wear essentially regular school clothes…

Christmas outfit ideas for kids

It is hard to believe that the end of 2017 is fast approaching. My kids seem to be outgrowing their clothes super fast so I am watching the sales to stock up on what they are going to need to get through to the end of the school year. I am also looking at all the super cute Christmas clothes that will make for some amazing portraits. There…

Sometimes all it takes is one item to pull an outfit together. Red and black is something that seems like a bit of a no brainer. But I never really put it together this way before. I always thought I should use a scarf with less red first of all. But I actually like how this turned out. Ever since I got these black velvet pants I wanted…

We are one week into November and I have succumbed to all things Christmas. I played some Christmas tunes at work on Friday and quickly tore down all my Halloween decorations. Except for my doormat. I need to figure that out ASAP. I was thinking about this and this as a combo. There is much debate in Canada the last few years about Christmas creep and how it…

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…


Little Girls Gift Guide

I started with the Little Boys Gift Guide because in the past I have found it harder to shop for my son. This is the first year he has been really vocal about what he likes. My daughter has been really clear about what she has wanted for Christmas since she could speak. So in honour of her and all the cute little girls stuff out there this…

Shopping for my kids is one of the extra fun parts of Christmas shopping. My son turned 5 and is finally more vocal about what he wants for Christmas. This means that instead of guessing I can get things that I know he will love. This is my little boys gift guide.…
