Travel: Packing

I am heading on a trip this week so I thought it is the perfect opportunity to share how I packed for a week in my carry on and the method I used to fit a lot in my suitcase in an organized way.

Friday Favourites: Apple Cider Chai

Fall is coming in full force. After the long weekend Fall it is going to explode all over my blog. Gilmore Girls. Pumpkins. Coziness. 
I found some amazing fashion, beauty, baking and home inspo this weekend on Pinterest and it will definitely have you thinking about Fall!
I hope you have an amazing weekend - soak in the last of summer!

Favourite Design:
Anne of Green Gables Pillow Cover (and Image) from
I am reallllly getting into the mood for fall. I love the fairytale pumpkins. I need more of these this year, and the Anne of Green Gables pillow and sign are so cute.

Gleaming Primrose Mirror in Canada

If you have ever dreamed of owning this gorgeous mirror, keep reading (even if you live in Canada, because I found a way to get it)!!
I planned on doing a proper post for this, taking beautifully styled photos and all, but I had to share this with you today and just couldn't wait.

Home: Fall Decor Inspirations

I don't think I realized how much I want Fall until Pinterest starting filling with Fall home decor, and I looked through my Fall content from last year.
It's like an itch for Fall. I am ready for fall candles, crisp air, sweaters... replaying Gilmore Girls for the millionth time. 
These are my favourite home inspirations for Fall so far and I am dreaming about a charming old house in a cute small town - like Stars Hollow if you catch the reference!

Nectarine Picking

This past weekend I was in Niagara-on-the-Lake. I took Friday off from work to enjoy a little weekend getaway of Shaw plays, afternoon tea, Niagara Falls and Nectarine/Peach picking! That is also the reason why I missed posting my favourites from last week! I promise I'll make up for it this week.

Wood Bead Garland DIY

A few weeks ago I made one of those cute wood bead garlands that are popping up all over home decor right now. If you have ever looked into buying one, they can be expensive, and I found especially in Canada, the shipping doubled the price! 
These make a great decor item for you home, a nice gift or even housewarming gift.

Apartment Refresh Project Reveal

This post is sponsored by Lowe’s Canada, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

A little while ago I mentioned that I was going to be working on an apartment refresh to show you how you can make a big impact for less. For a long time, I have wanted to change the wall colour of our space and make a few other changes to freshen up the space.

When my boyfriend and I moved into our space, the walls were a yellowy-cream colour and had been freshly painted. Rather than rushing to change anything, we lived with it for two years. Also, a few other items in our space had taken the back seat, so we decided it was time for a change!

Dîner en Blanc, Toronto 2019

Ever New kindly invited Tiffany and I to be their guests at  Dîner en Blanc Toronto! They dressed us in stunning white dresses & accessories from Ever New, and we had the most incredible time!
If you remember, last year I attended Dîner en Blanc in Paris last year, and because I loved it so much, I definitely couldn't pass up the opportunity to attend in Toronto this year!

Friday Favourites: Pralines & Cream

Another week of Summer gone! This week has seemed especially short because of the long weekend and I've been a ball of stress and anxiety!! Does anyone ever have those weeks where there are just set off by anything and everything - because that is me right now! Trying to plan trips, work on my thesis, work on my apartment project, figure out how to ship things to buffalo  for pick up and make sure they get there on time (which it looks like they wont)! I'm trying to order two different items that won't ship to Canada and shipping to Buffalo and picking it up seems like the only option sadly!
In any case! Here are 4 of my favourites from this week, one less than usual but I think we can cope with 4 just for this week. 

Favourite Design:
Bedroom Reveal from 
This space is gorgeous and calming and that art print is so pretty! I just ordered a bunch of prints online so I have been scouting out my favourites all week. Can't wait to reveal them soon!

All White Party Inspiration

I am heading to Dîner en Blanc tonight, and with the excitement of the event - I was dreaming up white party ideas and inspirations. I am so excited to see all of the gorgeous table settings, the venue and all of the outfits! I was able to attend Dîner en Blanc in Paris last year and it was an amazing event, so I am very excited to be able to attend in Toronto this year. 
In case you are thinking of hosting an all white party with all white decor, even add specs of gold or whatever you like, these inspirations are stunning!

My New Go-To Swimsuit from Summersalt

A little while ago Summersalt kindly gifted me one of their swimsuits and a cover-up.
This past weekend I had a chance to try it out of the cottage!
While this swimsuit and cover-up were gifted to me, the opinions are all my own.

Friday Favourites: Long Weekend Vibes

It's the August long weekend and we are heading up to the cottage!
While I will likely be chained to my desk working on my thesis, at least it is a change of scenery and I can take breaks and enjoy the water! I hope you have more exciting plans than me!!
All of these gorgeous favourites from this week are definitely goals - what I wish I was doing, wearing, eating and more. I hope you enjoy them!
