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.

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.
Yes, attempt number 2. For those of you who missed it; a couple months ago I made an effort to complete this task on my Bucket List and failed. I would suggest reading that adventure because it was hilarious – You can click here to jump to that post. This second time around was in fact, successful and I got my little “First Time Donors” pin to prove it! Continue reading
I love my job at Floors by Design. I get to work with so many talented people from interior designers, installers, representatives of beautiful materials, the list could go on forever. I also get to meet countless creative clients and together we come up with some pretty fun projects! This was one of those projects. I got to work with this client for over a year and her house is finally coming together and taking shape! I’m sharing some photos of the finished ensuite and steam shower that we got to do!
I’m sure we’ve all heard the saying, “Work smarter not harder” but I was thinking the other day that we should apply that saying to our entire life. Today with so much focus on mental health and being open about our struggles I feel like this isn’t that hard of a concept to grasp either. Continue reading
