I am really happy that mint has come back into style and appears as though it is here to stay through the Spring and into the Summer. Mint is everywhere – fashion, beauty, home decor and even food! I admire people who can pull off statement mint pieces, but for those of us who are a little worried about how the colour looks on, there are lots of ways to incorporate it into your life without having to wear it! Below are some awesome mint items and looks.

I love planning parties and events – it’s part of the reason why I am in a PR program right now. When I have my own house one day, I will definitely be the person who goes a little over board for casual dinners just because I can. I think table settings and centre pieces are a really fun, cheap, and easy way to make dinner a little more special. Below are some awesome DIY centre pieces.

Even with the growing popularity of ebooks, and ebook readers, I am still one of those people like prefers to buy a hardcopy of the majority of my books. Why? There is just something about holding a book in your hands, and being able to turn all the pages, that I still really love – and I love to display my books on my bookshelf when I’m finished reading them! Books are like art, and they can be displayed in a similar way. Like coffee table books, they really can breathe some life into a room and really act as a conversation starter. Below are some awesome ways to display your book collection!


I can’t remember the last time I received a handwritten note or letter in the mail – aside from the odd Christmas card. With the advent of email, texting, and Facebook, writing letters or cards has fallen to the wayside. There is something to be said about hand written letters, cards, or notes. I am one of those people who tends to save the majority of the cards or letters I receive – regardless of how small or insignificant they may seem. I think they are a great memento and an awesome way to remember someone. Now that I actually have friends who live out on their own, I am definitely going to send out some hand written cards this holiday season. Below are a few of my favourite everyday stationaries.


I love patterns – especially mixing patterns in outfits or rooms. A great accent to any living space is some sort of a pattern feature. Accent pillows are an easy way to incorporate a pattern into a room, but for those more daring, there are tons of other ways to create feature spots using patterns in a space. One pattern I am adoring right now is chevron. It’s classy, timeless, and really bold. Below are a few ways I would love to use chevron in a house – if I had a whole house to re-do!
