Patios & Gardens

Summer is finally here and I have been spending so much time out on the terrace. Dreaming about having a backyard and a home one day, and the amazing dinning parties I could have!
There are so many incredible styles and different ways you can design a backyard, patio, garden or summer house. These are a few of my favourite spaces, and if you click the source link there are many more beautiful pictures on those websites!

Please note that none of these images are my own, and all of the sources are linked below each image.

Saturday at Parkwood Estate

Over the weekend, I visited a beautiful estate for lunch and photos with a friend. I shared clips of this on Instagram in my stories and got lots of questions, so I wanted to share more details with you because it was beautiful! Also, if you're reading this, you are getting a sneak peek at the photos because I don't have then scheduled to be posted on Instagram for a few more days!

Friday Favourites: Terracotta and Peach

Happy Friday!
Seriously ready for the weekend. I don't know if it was the rainy weather on Thursday or what, but I took a two hour nap before getting up, writing this post, and going to bed. Wild Thursday night!!
I am finally finished my assignments at the end of my school term, and have a two week break! 
I am ready for a busy but fun weekend instead of focusing on assignments and that is always a nice break. Enjoy my favourites from this week!

Favourite Table Setting:
Terracotta and peach for a fall barn wedding from 100layercake.com
I adore the colours in this table setting, but the link also had me dreaming about a terracotta and peach fall wedding because isn't that the sweetest idea!? I love themes, any theme ... I love them so I couldn't help but share this one. 

4th of July

As promised in my Canada Day post - an Independence Day post!
Again, like the other post, this is mostly food because everyone loves to celebrate with good food, and its even better when its themed! I think these ideas would be amazing to celebrate with whether you're relaxing or attending or throwing a party over the long weekend!
Here are some of the best ideas I came across.

Canada Day

The long Canada Day weekend is coming up and I thought ti was the perfect time to share some ideas to celebrate over the weekend!
These might be mostly food - but who doesn't love to eat, especially when there is a reason to celebrate! There is also a cute printable banner at the bottom of the post. I just might print it out and hang it up at the cottage for the weekend.
Also, if you're reading this and American ... stay tuned because I have a 4th of July post coming tomorrow.

Beauty: Urban Skincare Routine

A few weeks ago I got an interesting question in my Instagram messages.
Urban Skincare. Anti-Pollution Skincare.
While I live in a city, this is not something I had a great answer to, so of course I did a little research.
Since this is something I think we should all think about, especially considering many of us live in urban settings, I wanted to share what I found!

Friday Favourites: Summer Florals

Happy Friday and Happy Raptors win and Happy New Taylor Swift song - so many things to be excited about this weekend. Especially if you are a Toronto fan and Taylor fan!
My post is sadly not themes around Raptors and Taylor Swift, but it is very summery and floral, so I am hoping this encourages the weather a little bit!
I have a weekend of final assignments to pump out and took Friday off to work on them... oh well, can't win them all! Next weekend I will be free for two weeks so I have that to look forward to!

This is the cutest little garden tent of my dreams! This would be such a lovely spot to spend a sunny afternoon reading and having really lovely treats. I am sure kids would absolutely adore this as well!
