It’s almost Mother’s Day! Are you in a panic because you don’t have a gift yet? Fear not, here are some suggestions to keep mom happy.
UP! Pants are a Canadian brand. These pants have fun details like petal slits and bold prints. My favourite is this pair of black pants with the ankle detailing. Best of all, these pants are super comfy! www.uppants.com (more…)
One of the best things about the holidays has got to be the amazing holiday scents. Fresh pine, gingerbread, spices….mmm. NEST has a wonderful collection of scents all year round, but I’m especially in love with their winter collection. This year, they have a few new scents in addition to their popular Holiday scent.
Their classic holiday scent is an intoxicating blend of pomegranate, Mandarin orange, pine, cloves, and cinnamon with a hint of vanilla and amber. I like using this scent in my home when Christmas is only a week away. The liquidless diffuser looks pretty, and releases scent for up to 30 days.
New to the scent family is Sparkling Cassis. This new scent is made with the incredible combination of pink champagne, crème de cassis, frosted cranberry, and wild fig. I love this scent, and I’m using it to lead up to the holidays in my home with candles in the bathroom and a reed diffuser in the living room.
If you’re looking for a bit of a more playful scent, Sugar Cookie may be right up your alley. This scent smells (you guessed it) just like a sugar cookie. It’s a baker’s dream with the warm flavors of Tahitian vanilla bean and bourbon-infused caramel with delicate threads of sugarcane crystals and the rich essence of golden amber.
I’m not lazy, exactly, but if someone happened to gift me a free cleaning service for life I would gladly take them up on their offer. It’s not quite a cleaning service, but this just may be the next best thing.
I was super excited to find out that Shark had entered the world of robotic vacuums. Thanks to Shark, I got my hands on a Shark ION™ Robot Vacuum Cleaning System. This vacuum is awesome! It packs a double punch, because it also comes with an ultra slim hand vacuum. (more…)
Urban Barn has a gorgeous fall collection that’s hitting stores now! It’s incorporating everything that I love right now. Dark florals paired with “millennial” pink, geometric shapes, mixed metals and more. Did I mention the incredibly comfy looking chairs? Check it out!
This is Newton, my cat. We think that he’s got a bit of Norwegian Forest cat in him.
He likes to sleep in funny positions. He likes boxes and running to the door whenever someone opens the front door. If he’s happy to see you, he’ll stand up backwards on his hind legs. He likes falling asleep in your lap.
He also loves to get his fur everywhere. We’re constantly finding bits of fur. If he sits on you, it’s fur city. We brush him tons, but the fur keeps spreading. I’m actually slightly allergic to cats, so try my best to keep the house as fur free as possible (as it can be with a cat.)
Enter the Bissell Crosswave Pet Pro. Bissell totally understands that sometimes, our furry friends can be a bit more fur than friend. I’m often out and about, and don’t have much time to clean. The Crosswave can mop and vacuumat the same time, saving me valuable time. (more…)
Living in a condo downtown has changed my lifestyle in tiny little ways that I didn’t expect to change. Some things I saw coming. Getting to the office from downtown is so much faster. I love being able to walk to different shops and bakeries. One thing I didn’t consider was my water consumption.
Before we moved into the condo, we had a fridge that had it’s own cold water and ice cubes. Now, our new fridge doesn’t have water and ice built in. As we adjusted to our new condo life, I found myself reaching for bottled water, over and over again. After checking out my shopping list one day, and added bottled water to the list, my husband suggested, “Why don’t we get a Brita?”
I love when you step into a home and you’re greeted with a simple scent. For spring, you always want that scent to be something light and refreshing. I’ve been changing the scents in my home to match with the seasons. NEST has a knack for creating the most perfect scents. This spring, I’ve been using their simple Linen Reed Diffuser fragrance to add an extra touch to my living room.
So what does it smell like? Linen is combined with apple blossom and white orchid to create the aroma of freshly laundered linens infused with the essence of a summer breeze.
The reed diffuser distributes the perfect amount of fragrance. Thanks to NEST’s special formula, fragrance is released slowly and evenly into the air for about 90 days. If diffusers aren’t your jam, they also have yummy smelling candles available.
