DIY Paper-Napkin Decoupage (Spring Blossom) Easter Eggs

We are taking the kids Easter egg hunting this Saturday and they are  so excited. This will be the third year in a row that we’ll be attending our neighborhood’s annual egg hunt. We’re establishing our own little family traditions and rituals with each holiday. The best gift about being a parent is living life through the eyes of … More DIY Paper-Napkin Decoupage (Spring Blossom) Easter Eggs

Hello Bond Twenty!

Last year, I received a note from Lauren, the founder of Bond Twenty asking if I’d like to contribute to the site in some way. Initially, I didn’t pay much attention because in all honesty, I receive random emails to contribute all the time. I replied with a one snobbish sentence asking to see the site. … More Hello Bond Twenty!

Halloween at Home

Halloween in our home is serious business. Probably just as serious as Thanksgiving and Christmas. It’s not like we have a choice really- when there are over 3000 trick-or-treaters knocking on your door in a night, you’d better be ready. It’s also so much fun for the kiddos (secretly, I’m happy to be a kid again) to help … More Halloween at Home

Back to the Basics

To decorate without commitment, that is every girl’s dream. Imagine creating a wall photo collage where it requires so much planning, time, and effort only to tear it down because you’ve had a change of heart. It is just so painful. However, this is not the case with fireplace mantels. You can decorate it to … More Back to the Basics

Random Abode Notes

Hello! This post is kinda sorta random. There’s  no rhyme or reason. I’ve been so busy with the little troublemakers being sick that I haven’t had a chance to really do anything else at all. My life right now is 100% consumed with taking care of the kiddos and getting them back to being healthy! … More Random Abode Notes

Quiet Mornings

It’s very rare that I can enjoy a peaceful quiet morning by myself. Between mommy duties, home renovations, and work (many exciting new partnerships in the works…), it’s a miracle if I can even shower for more than 15 minutes. Life of a modern mom right? So when opportunity presents itself, I don’t object. In … More Quiet Mornings

DIY: Clipboard Makeover + 2015 Shoe Fashion Illustration Calendar GIVEAWAY! (Ends March 20th)

I’ve been on a Spring cleaning rampage! Opportunity has presented itself where I can focus a lot more on transforming my house into a dream home and being more committed to this blog. You probably already know that our home renovation is in full swing (for the past year).  Now that I can dedicate much more … More DIY: Clipboard Makeover + 2015 Shoe Fashion Illustration Calendar GIVEAWAY! (Ends March 20th)


Isn’t just painful that you spend so much money on fresh flowers and they barely last for a week? I don’t care where  you get your blooms; we all face the same problem. Once they begin to wilt, the water starts to smell like mildew so the next logical step is to toss them out, … More Half-Wilted

Spring-Ready Coffee Table (with Austin Leigh OC)

If you look outside my windows, you would see mounds of snow about 5 feet high. That doesn’t stop me from celebrating the arrival of Spring inside. Yep, I also realize that Spring doesn’t officially start until March 20th (I’ve marked my calendar!). So how does one actually prepare oneself for Spring? In my case, … More Spring-Ready Coffee Table (with Austin Leigh OC)

The Mobile Closet

Despite living in a somewhat spacious home, I don’t have the closet of my dreams- yet. My future closet still remains on the ‘to be renovated’ list. Currently, my clothes and accessories are scattered across several rooms. The classic morning dilemma is racking my brain and exerting way too much energy trying to find that … More The Mobile Closet

Inspiring Spaces

Good Saturday morning! What time do you usually wake up on the weekends? We’ve been up since 5am! Since then, I’ve made two batches of Chocolate Heart Barks for our neighbors who were so nice enough to save us a parking spot during the snowstorm. Also did a load of laundry and tidied up the … More Inspiring Spaces
