The Perfect Weekend Bag

October 11, 2017

READ MORE

For the past few years, I have been on the hunt for the perfect weekend travel bag. Everything was either too cheap or too expensive — like, I’m talking, either $50 or $1,000. It was hard to find the perfect bag at a reasonable price point in addition to great quality. I kept holding out hope that I’d find that seemingly elusive “just right” bag! Luckily, I did. Enter Cuyana! This Cuyana Le Sud Travel Bag is absolutely perfect. It’s made out of

Cozy Outdoor Living

September 21, 2017

READ MORE

When we built our home, we set out to create comfy, cozy areas for spending time outside: A covered patio complete with daybeds, an entertaining deck with a full table and chairs, and a backyard space complete with a wood-burning fireplace. The final (and trickiest) space to furnish was our backyard space around the wood-burning fireplace. It’s the perfect spot to unwind after a long day while our kids run around the backyard – especially since it gets shady in the afternoon! During

A couple months ago, we began a partnership with Almond Breeze. (Have you seen our frozen lemon meringue bar, walnut zucchini loaf, or end-of-summer tomato soup recipes yet?) As I connected the dots, I realized my friend Alexandria Smith lives on an almond orchard that’s a part of the Blue Diamond collective! Once I figured that out,

Today, I’m sharing a few photos from our latest partnership with Caitlin Wilson. Her new tabletop collection is just gorgeous. I loved using pieces from it to pull together this lovely table for brunch in our home! I have been a big fan of Caitlin Wilson for years – ever since I discovered her classic gold polka dot pillows years ago! I love her classic, timeless designs and playful pops of colour. One of my favourite aspects of this new collection is the

A Kiwi Brunch

September 6, 2017

READ MORE

When Zespri Kiwifruit approached us about a possible partnership (a.k.a.  girls’ brunch!!), I was thrilled! We’ve been eating Zespri SunGold Kiwifruit for a long time. Troy discovered them at a local store, and they quickly became a favourite easy-to-eat snack around our house. The SunGold kiwifruit is sweeter than a green kiwifruit, making them great for my kids. We eat them often so this partnership felt like a great fit! We brainstormed a variety of fun event ideas to share how versatile Zespri SunGold
