Joyous Health Raw Carrot Cake Balls

Over the past few years, I’ve cleaned up my diet a lot. Some of these changes were forced upon me when my body began rejecting certain foods. Joint inflammation, skin irritation and general stuffiness became a part of my daily life. Then, I began paying more attention to what I ate and started eliminating certain […]

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 […]

I Heart Kate Spade + Things We Love Giveaway

Kate Spade "Things We Love"

While in California last week (and whenever else I can), I visited one of my favorite designer shops, Kate Spade New York.┬áKate’s style can be described as bold, colorful, and geometric, being predominantly known for her her signature green and love of polka dots.

What Are You Reading This Summer?

Designer Challenge

Did you read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert? Sometimes I’m a little late jumping on a book train, and in this case, a lot late. Yesterday I finished the book and I have to say that, although she lost me at times (perhaps even bored me), there were some parts I found compelling and […]

Rearranging for Simplicity {Everyday Made Easy}

Tea Station

I was reading Julie Morgenstern’s book Organizing From the Inside Out and I came to the realization that, although my home is quite organized, there were many changes I needed to make. I’ve always had the idea that ‘like’ needed to be grouped with ‘like’. Julie challenges this notion with her smart, but obvious suggestion […]
