My Sequin Camera Strap: Sam and Kate Designs

Today I'm taking some time to highlight one of my newest favourite accessories, as seen in my home tour on The Everygirl. I am completely smitten with my sequin camera strap from Sam and Kate Design. I went with the silver sequins and silver tulle combo, which I adore, but the girls have recently launched a whole bunch of other fab colour combos! It makes taking pictures for the blog way more fun, and Sam and Kate are such sweethearts!

My Home Tour on The Everygirl

I am so excited to announce a secret I've been holding on to for months now. Today, my apartment is being featured on The Everygirl!!! My heart is so overcome with gratitude, happiness and a feeling of accomplishment, I am truly blessed. I hope you will all head over to check out the feature, learn more about me, and see my place looking better than ever thanks to the talented photography of my friend Anna from Anna With Love.





Thank you so much to The Everygirl team for this amazing opportunity and to Anna, whom I could not have done this without.

A Tall Stack of Books

Did you guys catch Alaina Kaczmarski's tour on The Everygirl (which she co-founded!) last week? I love everything about her apartment, from the archways, to the neutral colour palette, to the really really tall stack of books:

This book stacking is a technique that Alaina used in her old apartment as well:
 via Live Creating Yourself
I love the look! At first I worried that I would knock them over daily, but then I noticed that if you look closely the books are actually supported by a rather cleverly hidden bookshelf.
This also means you don't have to unpile a million books to get to the one at the bottom.
While Alaina got hers at West Elm, The Everygirl sourced similar shelves from CB2 and Design Within Reach! Perfect for book lovers like myself.

Sketch Inspired by Stephanie Sterjovski

A few months ago I did this sketch of my friend Stephanie Sterjovski's place from her feature in The Everygirl, as captured by the photography of Anna with Love.
If you guys aren't following Steph's blog, you should be. She is gorgeous, talented, and has one of the biggest hearts out there. I can't believe I forgot to blog this little rendering!

Here is the shot that the sketch was inspired by:

Can you get over that black and white striped chair? She found it at Homesense Canada. I adore it!
Happy Wednesday! xox

Watercolor Wednesday: Pretty Living Room


 Today's painting is inspired by one of my favourite living room pictures. I fell in love with Alex from Things that Sparkle's living room when it was featured on The Everygirl a while back. It's so pretty! I love the balance and height that the pink candles and branches add & my favourite detail has got to be that pink ostrich feather pillow!
Hope you are all enjoying your week!
