A Room of My Own

I have been neglecting a crucial aspect of working from home: a proper office space. For years I've been alternating between using my laptop on the dining table, the sofa and my bed. Not the most efficient situation - my papers were everywhere, I felt messy and disorganized, and I wasn't working to my full potential.

I took stock of our living space - and decided to repurpose our old playroom into my office. When it came to decorating my space, I partnered with Marshalls Canada to pick out the cutest accessories to furnish my study.

Three ways to style an office decor how to post

Marshalls had a challenge for me - using their products, could I style my office in three different ways? This sounded like the most fun challenge EVER - so of course I said yes! Click through to see what I put together.

A Dupe for the Chloe Pixie Bag

Circle bags are quite the style trend. Last year I noticed a lot of leather hatbox options (such as this Mansur Gavriel one) worn with dressy outfits, while straw circle bags were very popular in the summer.

The Chloe Pixie Bag has the cutest take on the circle bag trend - pairing it with metal handles and studded details. Since the design is more a novelty than a classic style, I've been on the hunt for a good dupe!

Bundled up Together with NOIZE

They say that opposites attract - and when it comes to feeling cold, Hubby and I are completely different. I'm the one layering thermal shirts and fleece tights in the Fall - and he's the one wearing a light coat in the freezing snow!

But sometimes - especially in these minus temps, even light dressers need to get serious about their winter wear...so I was very excited when NOIZE gifted Hubby with the LOGAN parka!

A Weekend at Ste. Anne's Spa

A trip to Ste. Anne's Spa is a transformative experience - the combination of the quaint buildings, peaceful surroundings - and the fact that you can spend all day in your robe - gets you into a relaxed, vacation state-of-mind in no time!

Last weekend, a group of my blogger friends and I were invited to spend the night at Ste. Anne's Spa in Grafton, Ontario. This was my second time visiting the spa - as I had booked a Day Trip with some girlfriends in the past.

Tips on Getting Started with the Instant Pot

This is my first photoshoot of 2018, and I couldn't have picked a better day. The temperature was +5 C, so I was very comfortable taking photos in this cozy outfit. I've been getting a couple of questions about my LV Speedy 25, as I have started clipping on a bag strap to make it into a crossbody - it's made it so much more versatile, I use it all the time now! Anyways, in today's post I wanted to share some tips and tricks on using the Instant Pot - it is seriously life-changing - dinner time is so much easier since I bought mine!

I'm a bit of a gadget-queen when it comes to cooking (since I'm always looking for ways to make my life easier). I own a crockpot and a George Foreman grill - but nothing revolutionizes the cooking process like the Instant Pot! It takes pressure cooker technology and automates it - so you get flavour-infused meals in very little time. And unlike stove-top cooking, you don't have to stand around, stirring and checking your food constantly.
