Friday Favourites: Cozy Winter Weekends

I just made the announcements on Instagram that I am heading to Yellowknife in a week. Of course, I wanted to share a little bit of wintery inspiration to get us in the mood for the adventures I am going to take us on very soon!

Organic Modern Designs

I haven't shared any design musings in a little while so I thought after the long weekend was a good opportunity to share some of my favourites from the last few weeks.
I saw a hashtag that gave these musings a little name #EuropeanOrganicModern, which I love! I hope you enjoy all of these beautiful designs.

Vegan Chocolate Mousse

The most unexpected, yet tasty chocolate mousse! This was really easy to make and it was tested on non-vegans who thought it was amazing. Also, I had to make it Valentinesy with the cute heart shaped strawberries.

Last Week in Photos...

What a week and weekend it has been! This week on Instagram and the blog I shared a cute wallpaper that I drew for Valentine's Day that you can find here as well as a cake recipe that I have now made twice and is absolutely delicious for Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Buttercream, which you can find here! Below I will give a little update on what I was up to this week in case you missed anything.

Chocolate Cake with Raspberry Buttercream

It's been a while since I posted a recipe on the blog! I made this cake over the weekend and was overwhelmed with the messages, so I had to share. If you are just looking for the buttercream recipe, head straight to midgetmomma.com. This is the recipe I used and loved.
If you want to make the entire cake like I did, read on!

Love is Sweet Wallpaper

Happy Monday my loves!
I truly meant to make some other sort of post, but I immersed myself in drawing and time flew! If you've been here for a while, you know how I love changing up my phone wallpapers to be seasonal. This time I drew one for you and I am pretty obsessed! I think I might have to make a desktop version of this next! I hope you enjoy it and it makes your Monday a little bit sweeter.

Friday Favourites: I Heart You

Happy Friday! The last one of January and I am ready to enter the month of Love.
Last weekend I shot some photos at home for Valentine's Day and a few have been showing up on the blog this week. Hoping to shoot some more photos this weekend and this post is definitely giving me inspiration. Have an amazing weekend!

Favourite Table Setting:
Valentine's Inspired Shoot from theshiftcreative.com
I love the mix of black, white, pink and red! I can't wait to be able to host cute little Valentine's parties. 

My New Sofa Cover

Sharing part of my newly updated space!
*In partnership with Comfort Works*
At the end of last year I continued with my room refresh project, this time, with a beautiful new sofa cover! Through my Interior Design degree, we have spent a lot of time on the subject of sustainability, which is a growing topic inside the industry of design but also in the rest of society. I think that it is also important to think of this when it comes to furniture. I've had this Ikea Karlstad soft for many many years and rather than buy an entirely new sofa, I love that I was able to design a custom sofa cover with Comfort Works!

Printable Valentine's Sign

Love You More

I previewed this cute sign on my Instagram stories over the weekend. I know you loved the sign I made in the Fall so I decided to make another for Valentine's Day! I made this sweet little sign in 3 different colours. It is really easy to print off and put in a frame, plus you can change out the sign every season. Keep reading for all of the details on how to print and where to get the frame.

Design Musings

Sharing some of my design musings from this week. 
I love how all of these designs fit together with a similar colour palette. They are giving me so much inspiration for current and future projects. Plus, if you follow me on Instagram, you'll see the cotton ball stems and think of the ones I shared in my stories.
I hope you love these ideas as much as me.

Style: On My Radar

Nothing like a fresh wardrobe, or a few new pieces to beat the most depressing day of the year! During my lazy weekend in bed, which truly wasn't that lazy but quite productive - I did a little bit of browsing online. I found many things that caught my eye and I thought I would share some of my favourites. I included a mix of low to mid priced items. 
I have already placed an order for the ribbed joggers. I realized that these make the comfiest pj pants! Plus the Aire sweater and XOXO sweater for a cute Valentine's look.

Friday Favourites: Chamomile Dreams

Happy Friday Lovebugs!
These past two weeks have felt super dull, but the last two days I have been feeling a little more inspired. I think that scrolling through Pinterest always creates a creative spark of inspiration in me. I also think I may have skipped right over Valentine's Day and into Spring. I promise I will circle back soon. I have also been working on a super cute Valentine's Printable for you, so stay turned.
Have an amazing weekend!

Favourite Home:
Kansas City House from briahammelinteriors.com
I love this so much! Also, if you click the home tour, the space was beautifully designed by briahammelinteriors.com and is so unique and lovely. The style reminds me a lot of Julia Engel's home. I would love to live here.

Travel: Florida

I've been back for over a week now, but I have so many photos that my Instagram will be in sunny Florida for a little while. C and I spent the week after Christmas in Florida with family, and it was such a nice way to relax. C has been really busy lately and also has some busy months coming up, so it was really nice to spend quality time together. 
I am going to share lots of photos from my trip including personal photos that I didn't share on instagram, so I hope this gives you a better look into my trip!

Life: Christmas Holidays

This post is a little bit overdue, but with the busy holiday season I didn't get a chance to share what I got up to over the Christmas break! Plus I wanted to share some of my personal photos that you wouldn't see on instagram, both in this post, and the Florida trip post (what I did after Christmas).

Cozy Decor after Christmas

I just got back to Toronto from my trip to Florida and one of the first things I did after unpacking was take down my Christmas decorations. My condo feels so sad and empty. I seriously considered putting my tree back up!
I decided to look for some post Christmas decor to make my space feel cozy for winter and beat the blues! These are some of my favourite ideas found via Pitnerest.
