creating home – office

This room is one of the final room is this series (for now) and is one that I wasn’t expecting to do just yet. While my desk and office-y things went into this room when we first moved in, it was a room that we spent no time in as the room was a colour…

creating home – main bathroom

This was not the home post that I was planning on writing this month. Last month when I was planning out my blog posts for the month this room was in complete shambles. We had been living with a hole in our wall pretty much the entire time we have been in this house and…

creating home – living room

It is no question why this room is called the Living Room as I spend more waking time here than anywhere else. Whether it is watching TV (currently on a Gilmore Girl’s rewatch), working out, cozy-ing up by the fire, or gathering with friends this is a place that I spend a lot of time….

creating home – kitchen

The kitchen is very important to me. With a husband who cooks for a living and me who bakes when stressed we both need a space that allows us to have room in the kitchen to do the things we love as well as be a mixture of functional and pretty. When we were house…

how to decorate on a budget

Decorating a full house can be expensive. Going from a small basement suite that I didn’t put any thought into decorating into a 1400 square foot townhouse means that there is a lot more wall space and empty space to decorate. While I am trying to go through things slowly and not do it all…

expanding and planting – may garden update

This may be one of the most exciting posts that I have ever written because THE GARDEN IS OPEN! Last month when I posted my april garden update I talked about how our community garden closed due to the Coronavirus and we hadn’t been able to get a lot done besides some weeding. We then…

creating home – laundry/mudroom

This room is exciting for a lot of reasons, the first being that it is a room that I never thought that I would have. Knowing that I would be one day purchasing a townhouse or condo and not a detached house I figured that my washer and dryer would just be in a closet…

how i have been working out

NOTE: This blog post is being written in unprecedented times and there are a lot of messages out there about what you should or shouldn’t be doing right now. Your weight or fitness level at the end of this time doesn’t matter. I have good days and bad days and while for the most part…

creating things – DIY with me part 2

Last year I shared some of the things that I was DIY-ing in the bathroom such as liquid soap, scented bath salts, and bubble bath which you can read about in my post here. Today I am sharing some more DIY’s that I have been using. The sea salt spray I have been using for…

hoping my little plants grow – april garden update

I do not have a ton of experience with gardening, but my love of watching things grow is only growing! Last year was my real first foray into the gardening world when I got my first community garden plot (4×8) and planted it full of crops that actually grew including beans, zucchini, radishes, beets, and…
