Marble Lamp DIY

Recently I've had many people on Instagram asking where I bought these lamps, but the truth is - I made them!
This was a project I worked on last summer before moving into our new place in Toronto.
I never got around to posting the instructions on how to make them, but finally I am going to!
Two of these lamps can be made for under $100 total using marble bathroom tiles and a lamp kit.

Friday Favourites: Boho Blush

I know so many people moving, getting their own places and having fresh starts!
This post is inspired by a friend's bedroom decor and some great photos I came across when thinking of ideas!
Happy Friday!

Favourite Bedroom:
Boho Bedroom from oh.eight.oh.nine on Instagram
Love the pinky colours mixed with the neutrals! I think one of the best pieces of advice when buying your first pieces of furniture is to go neutral and decorate with colour and accent pieces like pillows and art. Pillows and art can easily be changed, and mostly inexpensive. If you buy neutral furniture, it can last a lot longer through all of the different trends!

Friday Favourites: Cottage Bound

Happy long weekend!
One thing that is great about the summer is all of the long weekends we get to look forward to!
This is my first summer where I have been working full time all year, and it isn't as bad as I thought because of all these long weekends! Loving it.
Here are some of my favourites for a long weekend at the cottage. 

Favourite Table Setting: 
The Alfresco Life from ciaonewportbeach.blogspot.ca
I think that this looks like a perfect cottage dinner party setting! I know it might seem like a pain to bring all of the china and food down there, but once everyone's enjoying food, the setting would be incredible!

Favourite Idea:
Homemade Waffle Cones from lovebakesgoodcakes.com (left) & S'More Cookies 
I absolutely love freshly made waffle cones, it reminds me so much of the cottage! It would be fun to try and make them from scratch - check out the link above to find out how.
On the other hand, these S'More cookies I made a few years ago are to die for! Recently someone who was up at the cottage when I made them was recalling how good they were, You could even make these with a prepared cookie dough with similar results!

Favourite Outfit:
Backyard Rehearsal Dinner Ideas from rusticweddingchic.com
Whether you are having a big party or wedding like the link above suggests, I think this is such a great idea! It looks cool, and it is super functional!

Favourite Recipe:
I saw these shirts pop up on my instagram recently and thought they are so cute to wear up at the cottage! Also there cause is really great, so check them out!

Favourite Recipe:
Peach Rose Sangria from julieseatsandtreats.com (left) & Mimosa Sangria from prettyplainjanes.com
Both of these drinks look delicious, and if you have a lot of people visiting, I think its a fun summery drink for everyone to enjoy!

Favourite DIY: 
Giant Pineapple Pool Float from mboutfitters.com
All of these funky pool floats have been so popular the last few years!
I know some may think they are ridiculous but I think they are cute and fun, and why not have them for the pool or cottage!? I love this pineapple and have definitely considered getting it multiple times - they also sell it on amazon prime!

Friday Favourites: Summer Citrus

We're at the end of July and it feels like summer is flying by!
We still have over a month left of summer, so I plan on enjoying it.
A theme I keep seeing all over the place is summery fruits, especially lemons and these Friday Favourites are inspired by them!

Favourite Decor: 
Summer Lemon Farmhouse Dining Room from lizmarieblog.com
I would love to have a little country home with rustic decor like this, it looks perfect! I also love the lemons on each place setting, and I have seen this at weddings before - super cute!

Friday Favourites: Feeling Peachy

Yay it's friday!!
You know sometimes weeks just feel a little longer than others - that was this week to me! 
Happy that it's the weekend and I am heading up to the cottage.
Loving these cute summery inspirations I found this week for my Friday Favourites!

Favourite Recipe: 
Grilled Peaches with Vanilla Ice Cream from whatsgabycooking.com
Last summer we were obsessed with backed apple crumble, but now I think I have a new treat to try! 
Might try this over the weekend - maybe with frozen yogurt instead though, just to make it a tiny bit healthier!

Friday Favourites: Palm Chic

Though the weather hasn't been so sunny here in Toronto, it doesn't mean we can't dream of warm weather and bright tropical colours!

Staying optimistic, here are some of my summery favourites.

Favourite Table Setting:
Palm leaves are so popular right now! I seriously have so many different Palm photos I could make a party board around flirty pinks and palm leaves. 
I really love this table setting, I think it is super cute for a summery party! Check out the other ideas at the link above!
