Hanging Stockings without a Mantel

I am loving how I styled my space for the holiday season. I was debating getting a electric fireplace but I came up with a better solution that makes a little more sense in my current living situation. I know so many other people struggle with where to put their stockings if they don't have a fireplace mantle so I wanted to share how I did it!

This Week in Photos...

I am a little late on my post this week but I still wanted to give you my weekly post and also share my new favourite photo from this week.

Friday Favourites: Christmas Tartan

This week has flown by! Finally! I felt like the few weeks before were really dragging on and I am really looking forward to the weekend. Excited to head to some Christmassy things this weekend and I will give a full report on Sunday when I do my weekly recap in photo. 

This week I was clearly obsessing over tartan. All of these photos are so beautiful and holiday inspired with tartan and I love it so much!

I love the mix of the two different tartans and materials in this photo plus the gorgeous red tree. Check out the rest of the home in the link above. So stunning.

This Week in Photos...

Another week in the books! It truly feels like time is flying by. I also feel like I’m playing catch up with Christmas and I’ve been trying to pinpoint why that is! I think because we received a pretty early snow in Toronto, it put everyone in the holiday spirit. I think so many people put up decorations early, and I am starting Christmas content a week or two earlier than I normally do, and planning to do it even earlier next year. I hope you are excited for my new Christmas content and adventures that are coming out. I have continued to show them off in my stories on Instagram as well as some cooking and baking, which you have been loving! This is the last of the Fall and San Francisco content and I ended with my favourite photo in the convertible Camaro we rented in California.

Friday Favourites: Holiday Green

After what seems like one of the longest weeks, we finally made it to Friday! I don't know if it is waking up to darkness and getting home to darkness, or the early snow this year but I feel exhausted. This felt like such a long week and I am ready for some rest this weekend. Even though, I am pretty positive I won't rest and it will end up being busy! I still have some more holiday decor to sort out. Anyone else?!
I hope you enjoy these holiday greens that inspired me this week. I love how classy it looks at home and as fashion for the holiday season!

This space is so unique and gorgeous. I love the space even before the gorgeous Christmas decor is added! Though, I also love the blue and green mix of decor!

DIY Christmas Decor

I have always had a love for DIY projects and around the holidays it is so nice to add personal touches through DIY's to your home or even to gifts. These are some of my favourite ideas I have come across and I am hoping to try many of these this holiday season.
Below each image is a link to the DIY and image source.

Please note that I do not own any of these photos. The image sources are linked below the image.
Such a fun Christmas countdown idea using an old window pane and dry erase markers! Love the boxwood wreath and old truck too! #easydecorations #christmasdecor #christmascountdown #countdowntochristmas

Cozy Holiday Pjs

I absolutely love Christmas pjs so I had to share some of my 2019 favourites. I am pretty positive that all of these are under $50 and some are as low as $8. If you see a set that you love, but only want the pants - chances are that the retailer sells just the pants, vice versa! 
At the bottom of each image you will find a list of numbers that will take you to the retailers site to buy the pjs are check out more details. There is a mixture of cotton, spandex, fleece and flannel pjs so I hope there is something for everyone. Also, many of these retailers sell matching sets so the whole family can cozy up in matching pjs for the holidays. 
I love having everyone in the family in Christmas pjs on Christmas morning, so I always gift them the night before!

This Week in Photos...

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I decided on Sunday's I am going to do a little reflection on my week on Instagram and post all of my photos here and write a little bit about what I was up to this week. Some weeks it might be incredible dull, others might be a bit more exciting. 
My week on Instagram is still photos from San Francisco - another week or two and then holiday content will be coming your way!

Friday Favourites: Warm Holiday Weekend

Happy F R I D A Y!
I am so excited for the weekend because I am going to put up by Christmas decorations this weekend and possibly do a little shopping for more decor.
It's also been a super busy week, especially if you have been keeping up with me on Instagram, I have tried to take you along for my week. I have been to a few different events such as Hunter, Soia & Kyo, done a little bit of shopping! I saved them to my highlights section, so you can still find them if you missed them!
I hope everyone has a great weekend!
Also, don't forget that the 20% off Sephora Sale is on and I have linked all of my favourites that I truly use on a say to day basis. You can find the post here

I can't wait to have a kitchen in my home one day with a sweet little island and stools to hang little wreaths on like this!

Holiday Mantle Inspirations

Happy Wednesday! Getting back into my home decor Wednesday posts just in time for the Holiday's!
I am hoping to post more often leading up to the holiday's because I love this time of year and love all of the decor, baking and fashions! Also, I decided I am going to start a new post each week with all of the photos I posted on Instagram, details to all of the looks I wore and little life updates. Hopefully that is something you will enjoy!?
I am putting up my Christmas decorations this weekend, so I wanted to share a little bit of inspirations and this week I have been thinking of Fireplace Mantles and how I can't wait to have a cute one of my own to decorate. Honestly, I am so tempted to get a little electric one but I am not sure my boyfriend would agree. We'll see, maybe next year?

I wasn't planning on writing little captions under each photo, however, I love the Blooming Nest. I follow her on Instagram, so definitely check her out. Her decor is so cute!!!

What I Wore in San Francisco

I was only in San Francisco area for 3 nights, so I tried to pack as light as possible and ensure my outfits were really flexible and each item could be worn in multiple ways.
My coat was under C$100 and perfect in all situations on this trip. I also picked up the really fluffy sweater while I was away and I am in love with it! I also had one really lovely "silky" top that was perfect for casual and dressy times as well as a cream cashmere sweater.
I will link all of these items below, including the curler I use for my hair!

Friday Favourites: Holiday Dreaming

It's the first day of November and I am just going to jump right into Christmas and Winter Holiday content. I can't help myself, I truly love this time of year and I am gathering all of my inspiration for my home this year. We will be hosting a small Christmas dinner at our house before Christmas Day, so I need to start the planning!
I didn't want to jump into the over the top Christmas ideas so I decided to start off with more subtle decor and other ideas before we do a deep dive in a few weeks. 
This weekend last year I was putting up my Christmas decor -  I may be delaying by a week to get some school assignments finished, but hopefully you have something lovely planned!

Also, don't forget that the 20% off Sephora Sale is on and I have linked all of my favourites that I truly use on a say to day basis. You can find the post here
