Take Pause this Christmas Season

Taking pause this Christmas season

Happy Friday! How are your Christmas preparations coming along? Can you believe it’s less than 2 weeks away? This week, I’ve been shopping and wrapping gifts like crazy. After having the flu last Christmas, I wanted to finish up early in order to stay away from germy places like the mall from here on out. […]

The Satori Blog Turns 3!

Oast House Brewery at Niagara on the Lake

Happy Friday friends! I’ve been playing catch up this week after my trip to Blogpodium (more on that to come) and an extended weekend at Niagara on the Lake. I figured if I was going to travel across the country for a one-day conference, I may as well see some of the countryside. If you’ve […]

Back to School, Already?

Kid's Backpack Station

Although summer isn’t over according to the calendar, Labour Day Weekend marks the end of it in my mind. I don’t know if it’s just me, but July and August seemed to fly by.

Green Cleaning Must-Haves {Clean & Scentsible}


I switched over to green cleaning products quite a while ago for environmental and health reasons. I’ve always been a bit of a clean freak, and breathing in those toxic fumes years ago to get a sparkling bathroom could not have been a good thing! If only we could go back to the times in […]

Keeping the Winter Blues Out of Your Home

Purple Hyacinth

Yesterday, another snow storm hit, and I was so happy I didn’t have to leave the house. This winter, we’ve had more than our fair share of snow, which means cold temperatures and gloomy days- YUCK! To make it even worse, I’m one of those people who’s cold most of the time (in the literal […]

Birthday Getaway

The Cross in Yaletown

Hello! It has been a bit of a whirl wind this month, and I must apologize for the scattered posts. As many of you know, it took me a couple of weeks to recuperate from a terrible flu I had over Christmas. That meant delaying project plans and so much more. On Thursday, I had […]
