Happy Halloween!!! This is always the most bittersweet time of the year para moi because I am literally SO freakin’ excited that it is Halloween, yet it also means that I have to wait a whole 365 days ’til the next Halloween! Le sigh. Anywho – I am going to try my very best to be super “present” & bask in all of the guts, ghasts & gore whilst it’s still both socially & morally acceptable to do so!! NOW if you follow me on social, you’ll know that I just hosted my third annual Hallo-weekend up in Haliburton! This year’s theme? Happily N’ever After; Fairytales Gone Wrong! Friends – it was fan-freakin-tastic! Like I think that this might just be my very favourite of Hallo-weekends thus far, & I am sharing all of the details on ze blog today. So…. ENJOY!!!  (more…)

You GUYS… I am currently writing this from quite possibly the best Airbnb – EVER! Seriously. I realize that this is somewhat of a bold statement, but if you follow me on Insta & happened to be viewing my stories over the weekend, I am more than confident that you would 100 hundred percent back my claims. It was legit magical – like movie magical – & I am more than happy to share the details today so that you too can bask in all of the glory that is this particular Airbnb(more…)


Tips for Decorating a Small Condo for Thanksgiving

“I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage”

Erma Bombeck

There are many warranted concerns people have when transitioning into condo life; small living space, loud neighbors, high utility fees, & minimal storage are all GREAT examples of such completely warranted concerns. Being filled with sheer & utter dread that you won’t be able to decorate said “small living space” for the holidays? Yeah… not SO warranted! However this concern was legitimately at the very tip top of my list when Andrei & I signed the lease for our 600sq. foot condo in Toronto. I am obsessed with any & all holidays (although Halloween undoubtedly comes in at number one) & the mere thought that a perfectly carved Jack-O-Lantern or a neutral, rustic Christmas tree would not be within the realm of possibilities was just way too much disappointment to bear. No… this little scenario was simply NOT an option. I therefore made it my MISSION to find pieces that work in small spaces, yet still TOTALLY accomplished that nostalgic, holiday vibe I was so, so SO, craving! First up on the holiday list? Thanksgiving! Enjoy! (more…)
