Weekend RoundUp: 03.05.16

Writing my weekend round up post is always bitter sweet! I love recapping what has happened during my days off and quality time with my friends and loved ones but it also reminds me of how fast it went and how much I am going to miss it! 

This weekend was pretty laid back, we didn't have many plans (other than family dinners) and sort of just went with the flow and did what we decided to in the moment. 

I decided to go minimal with my make-up on Saturday and skip the eyeliner..... WHAT! I am an addict to my thick black winged liner ( I even did a post on how I perfect my cateyes)! It was refreshing to change up my look for the day and it actually took quite a bit of time off my getting ready clock! 

Saturday afternoon we went out to visit my parents at their new house that they are currently remodelling. We had an awesome time there just hanging out and looking at all the hard work and progress that has come along since the last time I visited! 

I snapped a quick picture of the main staircase. I am in love with the look of the white classic stairs and the exposed wood of the walls! 

We ended the night with some family dinner and getting together with friends to watch the fights. Sunday morning we had some fun decorating plastic Easter eggs and lounging around the house, with coffee of course! 

We headed out for some lunch at a local sushi place. My OOTD consists of a denim top from Target, blush jeans from Material Girl Line  at The Bay, booties from Call it Spring & watch from Daniel Wellington.

I tried to add a bit of spring into the house and put out some new white tulips in my bathroom. I love the subtle change that it makes.. look forward to a decor post on Spring updates. 

Now winding down from a great weekend makes me feel ready to start another amazing week doing all things that I love. I cannot wait to share my journey with everyone.

Time for some Davids Tea -Movie Night tea and get myself ready for the week. 

I would love to hear about your  weekend! Post in the comments below!

February Favourites

Although February is the shortest month of the year (even with Leap Day) it still felt like a pretty solid month filled with a lot of memories and events. During February I found that I was more in love with aesthetically pleasing things than make up or skincare (even though there is a skincare favourite...of course!). I fell more in love with my blog, went out and did things that are new to me as well as realized how cherished my relationships are. Here are my favourites for the month; 

Fresh Cut Flowers 

I know Valentines day probably sparked this interest but I have always loved having fresh flowers (sometimes even fake flowers) around the house. My Tumblr feed has been filling up with fresh spring flowers and I could not be more obsessed! 

A Rosie Bath  

keeping with the theme I am totally loving the Lush bath items that are rose scented. I want to love the body conditioner more but I feel that the Rose Jam has it beat. The smell and lasting power of the body wash is amazing! I need more in my life!

Holy Grail Face Mask 

Now if you read my recent post; CLICK HERE!  but I have fallen in love with the First Aid Beauty Overnight Mask  . I highly recommend it if you have dry patches and stubborn spots you want to get rid of. Every morning it looks like my face just drank a big gulp of water. I am addicted for sure! 

My Daily Routine

I have been sticking to a pretty solid morning routine lately. I know it sounds silly to plan out my day but I find that I am more productive when I stick to my plan (plus I feel accomplished when I get a lot done). My morning routine always starts with making my bed and then having breakfast. After that it varies with what I have planned that day or need completed but I always have a large mug of coffee/tea by my side and a great podcast or youtube video to catch up on! 

Blog Organization

As most bloggers I love to be organized with my thoughts and upcoming post ideas. Lately I have been using the template I created to keep myself organized from week to week and it is helping keeping everything in one place. Before using this system I would have a ton of sticky notes and loose papers everywhere that made it more complicated. I can now write all my ideas and things to do on one page and keep it organized. 

I would love to hear what you have been loving this past month! Leave a comment down below!!

Spring Decor Trends 2016

Spring is in the air (and if it's not then I am pretending it is)! I am so ready for the cold weather to melt away and bring the sun back out. I have never been one for winter time and the only reason I enjoy the colder months is because of the cozy indoor decor we can play with. 

I took a trip today into Home Sense and Winners  to take a look at what trends were popping up for home decor! I am in love with the pantone colour trends that are out currently. 

This post on instagram by HomeSenseCanada was what drew me in! 

I am usually only drawn to white/black/grey/gold decor but something about this quartz colour gets me. 

So off  I went to scope out what I could find in stores!

I bought a few things at Homesense which I will be posting a haul very soon! But the trends I saw today in the store were lovely!

 Lots of pastels to brighten up a space, wood and metal tones to define and contrast against the furs and flowers that can bring dimension and comfort into a space.

I am loving the look of rustic wood mixed with pastel paint and ombre drawers. I am working on a DIY of a nightstand (which I should be done soon!) and if I can master that DIY I would love to do a project incorporating drawers that ombre! 

What are you loving this spring for home decor and what is on your wishlist to buy?!
