Not many people could fail this one… but I did… thank goodness I have awesome baking friends to save me! 🙂 I have seen those gorgeous pictures of rainbow cakes and they make me drool! So naturally, I had to try to bake one! Cake is my favourite food – Hands down. I love cake. Cake is amazing. One evening I had a friend over and we were talking about all the things happening in our world’s as we made the cake. Our plan was to have it four layers high, each being a different colour. Pretty simple. As we talked about work, school, boys, family and other drama, I added ingredients into the mixer while my friend greased the cake pans. When we were both done, we separated the batter into four different bowls to add the colour. The recipe we were following required that we use partial packs of jello instead of food colouring to achieve the pastel tones. Continue reading
I love smelling things. Out of all my five senses, I appreciate the ability to smell above the rest. I’ve noticed that I will often pour a cup of tea and be just as content to smell it beside me instead of consuming the entire thing. I enjoy sitting in coffee shops and smelling the beans. I look forward to walking into the house and smelling turkey dinner during the holidays. Most girls might have an obsession with purses or shoes, I however have an obsession with perfumes and fragrances. I love them – they are my weakness. I appreciate a man’s bold cologne before his tie, a rose’s soft sent before its petals, or fresh bread coming out of the oven before eating it. I would be so sad to have a bad nose. Continue reading
Haley and Fabi is probably my most favourite wedding that I’ve ever had the opportunity of doing to date. My heart gets so happy simply thinking about it! What made their day so incredibly unique and special is that Fabi’s mom grew most of the flowers for me to design with for their big day! Haley and Fabi live out on the east coast, so early on Gisela, Fabi’s Mother, and I talked about flowers and the vision the families all had for the wedding – It would be out on the farm the first week of August, and Haley wanted the day to be elegant & fun.

I finally did it! Running a 1/2 marathon has been within the top 10 tasks of my Bucket List for several years. I am thrilled to have finally gotten my first long under my belt. I absolutely loved everything about this run. I adore running. Continue reading
Rabbits are my favourite animal. They’re too adorable not to love! Theodore is my little bun – the sweetest little fluff ball you’ll ever cuddle. I got him in April right after I moved back home from college which would make him 2 years old. My sister and I had gone to the pet store to kill time and saw the cutest grey bunny. While all the other 6 week old bunnies hopped around the pen, he sat in the middle with ears drooped on the floor, completely unamused with life outside of the cage. I picked him up and he didn’t move; he was the calmest pile of fuzz. I had to take him home ♥ As I held him in my arms his relaxed character didn’t change; he was Eeyore in the form of a rabbit.
You know those people in your life that always seem to have it together? Maybe their projects in school are always flawless, maybe their kids are always perfectly dressed, their car’s always spotless, maybe their makeup + hair always looks like if was professionally done? You’re probably already thinking of that person (or persons…) right now. We know that it’s impossible for people to always have their life together like that, but still. How do those people always seem to LOOK like they have it together…? I’d like to know their secret so that I can appear that way too…

“But you, be strong and do not lose courage. For there is reward for your work.”
These clients were so fun! It was a mother – daughter duo working on their new home with Ripplinger Homes here in the city. Those ladies and I were 100% on the same page ♥ We loved the same things, which made it even more fun when our ideas bounced off each other and created something incredible for their house! I’m always so excited when I get to work with people that enjoy making their project fun, exciting and totally designed around their family’s character + lifestyle! I’ll never get bored of being a part of such creative projects! I have been getting more opportunities to work with Ripplinger and I feel so lucky to play a small part in their projects.
