Lately, I’ve been frustrated beyond all reason. 

And if you’re wondering what me being frustrated has to do with crocheting, let me explain..

I’ll be doing some menial task, like the dishes or sweeping, and BOOM — an idea for a blog post, or business graphic, but I can’t seem to just hunker down and get anything written + posted! My mind will race and for those few moments its on my mind I AM SO MOTIVATED! As soon as I sit down so that I can get started, it’s as if the motivation just decides to take it’s lunch break and I’m sitting in front of my computer, staring blankly at a white screen + flashing cursor. 


Sugar Cookies and Sauvignon Blanc


It’s a grey, rainy Monday night in Toronto, but my kitchen smells like sugar cookies (and my mouth has the lingering taste of Sauvignon Blanc). I spent the day doing laundry and vacuuming and cleaning the litter box and washing multiple stacks of dishes. So what am I doing to make time for myself and relax? 

Well, I’ll tell you. Here’s my secret to relaxing:

I poured myself a glass (or three, whatever) of wine and baked some sugar cookies. 


Easy Ways to Pet Proof Your Home


Hello lovelies! 

Many of you know that just last week I adopted my friends cat, and have been 110% obsessed with the furry little feline ever since. She’s only been here for a week but she’s quickly evolved from being a little princess to a majestic, fluffy queen.

I was so excited about getting her that I completely forgot to pet proof my house before I brought her home. The first day she was here, I’d try to keep tabs on her at all times so I knew she wasn’t getting into anything she shouldn’t. 


DIY Scrabble Coasters


I know, I know, it’s been AGES. Life got a little hectic and busy, okay?

And I bet you’re thinking, “Oh, it’s been over a month and a half, and now she’s back and trying to win us over with some silly – albeit super cute and fun – DIY post.”

Well…. yeah. That’s exactly what I’m doing.

Is it working?

Good. Let’s move on.


Brown Sugar Coconut Oil Lip Scrub


I love coconut oil.

I also love DIY projects and skincare.

So, how thrilled am I to tell you all about a DIY skincare product that’s super easy to make? Extremely.

We all know that coconut oil is “in” these days; a previous post I wrote highlighted a few different ways you can use coconut oil in your everyday cooking and beauty routines.

Its health benefits are endless, and it’s one of the most versatile all natural products out there. So naturally, I made a brown sugar coconut oil lip scrub.

In my January ipsy Glam Bag I received a lip scrub that I wasn’t super keen on, and I mentioned that I preferred my own. I decided to share my recipe with you all, because a) it’s super easy to make, b) only needs 3 ingredients, and c) who doesn’t love a good lip scrub?


Coffee Mug Design


I love coffee. Have I mentioned that before?I also love nail polish and crafting. What do you get when you mix all three together? A DIY Coffee Mug design using nail polish instead of sharpies!I browse Pinterest far too often, and people are using nail polish for everything these days: their nails (obviously), painting their keys to tell them apart, using clear nail polish on the inside of a ring to keep from turning your finger green, and now, I guess, to decorate coffee mugs! At least, that’s what I’m using it for.THINGS YOU’LL…
